The lights are on
A day after launching the Wii U, Nintendo said there are no original Wii games currently in development at the company. Nintendo's director of product marketing Bill Trinen addressed the situation in an interview with GameSpot.
"Wii itself is really interesting because there are so many people who have that system and know what that system is that there's still a lot of opportunity for software sales on Wii," he said the day before the Wii U launch. "A lot of that consumer is somebody who is looking for…good games.
"So whether it's things like Nintendo Selects or a lot of the users also are still using their Wii to deliver Netflix content. I think there's also the potential for a lot of people who still haven't purchased Wii, believe it or not, who might be interested at the right price. So we'll probably be looking at it more from that standpoint."'
The original Wii launched in November 2006.
