In a quarterly earnings call yesterday Ubi Soft CEO Yves Guillemot was completely gushing over the Nintendo NX saying;
On the NX, what we’ve seen is really great. We think having a new machine coming is really going to help the industry to continue to grow and to take a lot of casual players back to the industry.
This is good hearing praises from one of the larger third party developers out there. The one thing the last few Nintendo consoles have not had the best third party support.
Nintendo doing well is good for the industry given that they seem to be the only big console and game maker who is willing to take risks and try new things. They don’t rest on the morals. Sure sometimes it’s a flop like the Wii U (which is an excellent console) and other times its a smashing success like the Wii or 3DS or games like Splatoon or Mario Maker.
