Ubisoft CEO Praises Nintendo NX For Being "Easy To Use" And "Different"

Nintendo has remained conspicuously silent on any details involving its upcoming system, codenamed NX. However, not all third-parties are completely biting their tongues on the subject. The latest third-party to hint at the NX's direction is Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot.

Speaking with IGN at an event, Guillemot praised Nintendo for its concept. "I think, once again, the interface is very attractive," he told the outlet. "It's a machine that will be easy to use for all gamers. They have built in something that will give us chance to really have a different experience from what exists today. That's what I like – that they come with something new that is adapted to what we actually want now."

Guillemot also told that "Nintendo has learned from the Wii U."

Our Take
I think most of us have already accepted the idea that whatever the NX ends up being is going to be something distinct from the consoles on offer from Sony and Microsoft, but this definitely furthers those notions. I just wish Nintendo would lift the curtain already.
