"It's all about the games. The competitive systems have announced their launch lineups. I'm allowed to say 'meh,'" Fils-Aime told IGN. "I look at our lineup of titles and I feel good about our lineup."

The Xbox One's launch lineup features 23 games, including Call of Duty: Ghosts, Battlefield 4, and Dead Rising 3. Meanwhile, PlayStation 4 launch window games include exclusives like Knack and Killzone: Shadow Fall, as well as Battlefield 4 and Call of Duty: Ghosts.

"We've got Zelda. We've got Mario. We've got Donkey Kong," Fils-Aime added. "In addition to great titles like Pikmin 3 and Wonderful 101, I feel very good about our lineup, and I feel very good about the value proposition we're putting out there for the consumer."

Yesterday, Nintendo announced a $50 price cut for the 32GB Wii U, dropping the system to $300 effective September 20. The $250 8GB model will be phased out. This new pricing will put the Wii U a full $100 below the PlayStation 4 and $200 under the Xbox One.
