Justin Richmond “Not Completely Sold” On Wii U
Naughty Dog’s game director Justin Richmond has shared his thoughts on the Nintendo Wii U in an interview with nowgamer. Richmond believes the Wii U is “very cool” but doesn’t offer anything different to the PS3′s Vista. While Richmond may be giving his honest opinion there is no doubt there is a conflict of interest as Naughty Dog are avid Playstation fans so I’d take his comments with a pinch of salt. It would have been great to see Uncharted on the Wii U, although I can still see it happening a few years.
To be honest with you, the idea of it is very, very cool. But there’s nothing that the Wii U has that the Vita and PS3 doesn’t. You know, it’s an interesting piece of technology, and I’m interested to see how people use it.
I’m not completely sold yet. That the screen isn’t multi-touch, that’s a little weird. It seems there are some very strange holes in it, but to be fair, last time I was sceptical of the original Wii, and look at how that did. I’m sure that he games they make for Wii U will be amazing.
