With the Xbox 720 rapidly approaching its release, how the Wii U continues to perform will tell a lot about Nintendo's performance, and Activision does not seem impressed thus far.
According to a report from GamesIndustry on Friday, Activision Blizzard CEO Bobby Kotick talked about how the company is disappointed with the Wii U's performance.
"As you know, we were somewhat disappointed with the launch of the Wii U.
"And I think it's a challenging environment this year, and one of the things we are concerned about is what the install base of hardware will be like for 6-11-year-olds.
"But we have a lot of confidence in the franchise in the long term. I think we're delivering another great product this year," Kotick said.
Kotick then discussed the company and how they are looking forward into the next-generation.
"While we had a strong 2012, we recognize that 2013 is a transition year as we enter the ninth year of the current generation of console video game systems.
"We encounter new threats from unproven business models, and we compete against new category entrants.
"We aren't immune to unfavorable market dynamics, but we have navigated these transitions many times before, and we are prepared to do so again," Kotick said.
