According to a report from GameRevolution on Tuesday, Nintendo's own Shigeru Miyamoto talked about how he is not concerned with the Wii U's performance, which was released last year.
"We really view it as being the ideal device that families are going to want to have connected to that screen in the living room that everyone is going to gather around and watch.
"Certainly in the short term I would want to see it performing with probably a little more momentum.
"I think in the long term I’m not at a point where I’m concerned yet," Miyamoto said.
Granted since the Nintendo Wii U has only been available since last November, the time element definitely suggests the console is fine and doesn't need urgent attention.
However, with the Xbox 720 and PlayStation 4 gearing up for releases in the coming months, the Nintendo Wii U will be entering into a different competition climate than it is in right now.
It's difficult to imagine how things will be for Nintendo once Microsoft and Sony have released their own systems, but one can imagine it will be extremely competitive for all systems to gain consumers.
