Peter Moore, Chief Operating Officer for Electronic Arts, has been singing his praises about Nintendo's HD console due to be revealed next year, the Wii U. Having already confirmed strong backing from EA, the former head of EA Sports expresses how much he is looking forward to seeing what the console will bring to gaming, as well as raving about its online capabilities.
It’s a very exciting machine and I’m glad to see it out there. I mean, a hi-def Nintendo platform! There’s nothing that could make me happier. Its online capabilities are really extensive, too, so we’ll be able to differentiate ourselves from the competition more easily with our sports lineup. We can’t announce anything yet, but what I can say is that Nintendo is a company that’s been producing new types of play culture for years. The 3DS and Wii U have taken on that DNA, so I really can’t wait to see what kind of new surprises are waiting for us.
