Even though Wii U is doing much better lately, the majority of people still share the opinion that Nintendo’s latest console is doomed. Luckily, there are people within industry who still believe in Nintendo’s power to stay afloat.

In an interview with Examiner, Activision CEO Eric Hirshberg has shared his thoughts regarding Nintendo’s struggles with Wii U:

“They are obviously not off to the start they’ve probably hoped they would’ve had with the Wii U, but they also have some of the world’s best IP and some of the world’s best game makers. I’ve always said they’ve been through rough hardware cycles before, but when you have the kind of game makers and beloved IP like they do, you can’t count [Nintendo] out for the long-term.”

While it’s nice to know someone at Activision acknowledges Nintendo’s strongest points, it also would be nice to see more actual support for Wii U.

Do you think Activision might change its strategy regarding Wii U in the future? Tell us in the comments!

    Says the publisher that refuses to release the newest Call of Duty. For the record I only played like one game out of that franchise for the GameCube and couldn’t finish it nor am I interested in doing such anymore because most of the fans have a huge bias and fetish in saying that Call of Duty is the greatest franchise of all time and nothing else ranks at it…not even Wolfenstein or Super Mario Bros.

    But for publishers like Activision and EA to release their stuff on only Xbox One or Playstation 4 but refuse to release games on the Wii U when people like me only have that system and can’t afford a PS4 I’m being screwed as a gamer and I’m getting real sick of it.
