Miyamoto downplays Wii U tech hopes

Nintendo is not building its next generation console with the most expensive high-end tech, the company’s development boss Shigeru Miyamoto has said.

Nintendo is an entertainment company,” he told Gamespot. "We’re very sensitive to pricing because people have generally only a certain amount of their spending that they’ll devote to entertainment.

We’re trying to do that by finding the right balance between the CPU and the GPU, the graphics processor, and bringing all of that together with the ability to take advantage of the HD capabilities of the system, and wanting to do the most that we can on that front as well

We’re very sensitive, of course, to trying to do all of this at an appropriate price. So I don’t know that we would be able to sit here and say that it’s going to necessarily dramatically outperform the systems that are out now. It’s part of the balance that we strike in terms of trying to find entertainment that is new and unique.”
