There has been a large amount of debate lately about how successful the Wii U will be once it launches, not only in the short-term, but in the long-term as well, and it seems another business analyst has jumped into the mix with his thoughts.
According to a claim in a recent investor note from Robert W. Baird’s analyst Colin Sebastian, he thinks the Wii U will have a limited amount of time to garner the type of broad support and interest it will need before Microsoft and Sony debut their consoles.
“We remain concerned that Nintendo is missing an opportunity to build greater mindshare ahead of the [alleged] Wii U launch on November 18th.
“While initial strong sales are likely, given the Nintendo fan base, we believe there may be a narrow window of opportunity to generate broad consumer interest before next-gen Microsoft and Sony platforms are announced in [the first half of 2013] and launch in Q4 2013,” Sebastian said.
He went on to predict that he believes Nintendo will announce the price of the Wii U at the event the company has scheduled on Sept. 13th.
With everyday that passes, the entire industry draws closer to the start of the next-generation of consoles, and that comes with even more anticipation of what is to come from the top three console companies in the entire world.
