Codemasters: Wii U “is the future”


Nintendo’s Wii U “is the future,” according to Codemasters senior executive producer Clive Moody.

His comments emerged from a larger discussion as to the direction of the games industry, and what he would like to see from Microsoft and Sony’s next-generation consoles, to which he responded “I guess the wish list is more, bigger everything… that’s the megalomaniac developer talking!”

In regards to the Wii U though, Moody believes that the “multi-platform, multi-component experience” will become more dominant, through the rapid growth of the mobile industry.

“It works brilliantly, having played it,” Moody explained to News10. “I think it is the future. I mean, you’ve got to look at what’s happening in the world of mobile, you’ve got iPads, Surface just came out from Microsoft. I think you’re going to see a lot more of that cross-over. That multi-platform, multi-component experience.”
