Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot suggests the Wii U needs a price cut
Ubisoft has been one of the Wii U's main third-party supporters but the machine's slow sales are now having an effect on their support for it.
The company's CEO Yves Guillemot has revealed that they are currently sitting on a Wii U title until it sells more units and even went so far as to suggest that it may benefit from a price cut, something Nintendo of America boss Reggie Fils-Aime has already ruled out for now.
Speaking in an interview from last week's E3 Guillemot revealed, “We are coming with Watch Dogs and Just Dance this year. We also have another game on the shelves that we expect to come at some point when there will be more machines.”
“That game is waiting for more machines to be available,” he added. “With Mario Kart, Wii U made one step and we expect with Smash Bros. it will also do more. If Nintendo put the right price on the machine then they will probably have a chance to do further.”
He later underlined the point saying, “Nintendo has to perform this year, otherwise they will have less games. Justifying investing in the machine needs a larger install base.”
