Nintendo: HD is “not enough” for Wii U

The Wii U will at last see Nintendo move themselves into the realms of HD gaming, but they don’t believe that this will be enough to satisfy the gaming audience apparently.

Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime has stated that the company must continue to push the overall experience forward, providing a new type of entertainment for consumers.

“The big innovation with the Wii U is the controller and the ability to have an interactive experience that leverages all of your traditional input buttons as well as a screen built right into the controller”, Fils-Aime explains. “Yes, the system is HD capable; it’ll generate the most gorgeous pictures. But for us that’s not enough.”

“We need to continue pushing the overall experience forward. We need to bring new types of entertainment. New types of gaming and the combination of a big first screen — your home TV — coupled with a second screen in your hands, in our view, is going to bring gaming to a whole new experience and to continue driving the industry.”
