At a recent investor relations meeting held on June 16, Nintendo of America President Reggie Fils-Aime commented on how Nintendo hopes to combat the rising sales of the PlayStation 3 and its new motion controls.
When asked about how they are going to respond to PlayStation Move, Reggie was confident in saying that they have a clear path in front of them. “We want to provide compelling experiences for the consumer. We want to do that in a way that has tremendous value for the consumer and that one-two punch, we believe, is going to continue to drive our business. The consumer today can get a Wii configuration that has two fantastic pieces of software and a Wii MotionPlus for $199, and the consumer is responding. We believe that the consumer will respond to Metroid: Other M, Wii Party, Kirby’s Epic Yarn, Donkey Kong Country Returns, and to all of these fantastic franchises that we’re bringing to bear.”
While it remains to be seen whether or not Nintendo can have another successful holiday period like that of 2009, Reggie commented that if they manage to execute their goal, they will be able to widen the gap versus the other home consoles despite the availability of their new motion controls. He also went on to say that by driving the console's install base, software sales will increase as well
