GTA, BioShock Publisher Believes in Nintendo, Is Enthusiastic About NX
"They do it over and over and over again."
Speaking to GamesIndustry.biz, chief executive Strauss Zelnick said Take-Two believes in Nintendo's new hardware.
"We're believers. We never want to count Nintendo out. They do it over and over and over again. So we feel pretty enthusiastic really."
Continuing, the exec said the muted performance of the Wii U, which followed the sensational Wii, was part of a familiar cycle for Nintendo.
"It's not a slump, it's intentional," he said. "They come to market, they do really well, and then they sort of exit the market for a period of time.
"They've been doing it for like 150 years ... They're really thoughtful, they come to market with something they really think is going to work, more often than not it really works, it blows up, and then eventually they let it decline and they move on to the next thing. They don't mind having time in between.
"In terms of NX, there's an idea that we're working on," said Shigeru Miyamoto. "That's why we can't share anything at this point, and I don't want to comment on the other companies. If it was just a matter of following advancements in technology, things would be coming out a lot quicker."
