[EN]: With the recent release of Nintendo’s Wii U console, Reggie Fils-Aime, President of Nintendo of America, had something to say about the competition.

In a phone interview with CNET, Reggie said: “In the end, our competitors need to react to what we’re doing in the marketplace and need to figure out what their innovation will be. It’s likely that faster processors and pretty pictures won’t be enough to motivate consumers. They need to react to what we’ve done and we need to continue innovating with the Wii U and we will.”

Also, earlier today, it was announced by Nintendo the company has sold 400,000 Wii U units since launch date.

The CNET post may also be half-right about the graphics of the Wii U by stating that “with HD support and graphics that about match the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, some say it’s actually a way for Nintendo to catch up to the current generation and the company launched the device too soon.” While this is Nintendo’s first HD console, the Wii U has been released recently and we still have not seen the true (graphic) power of the console. For that, we would have to wait a year or even more probably, for companies to get accostumed to developing games for the console, and bring new ideas to make use of the gamepad/tablet.

Though the next Microsoft and Sony consoles could get to be more powerful than the Wii U, many more Wiis were sold than PS3s and 360s, mostly due to the prices for each console. Could this new generation be any different?

Nintendo also distributed some new pics of Wii U sales on Black Friday.

[ES]: Con el reciente lanzamiento de la consola Wii U de Nintendo, Reggie Fils-Aime, presidente de Nintendo de America, tenía algo que decir acerca de la competencia.

En una entrevista telefónica con CNET, Reggie dijo: “Al final, los competidores necesitan reaccionar a lo que estamos haciendo en el mercado y necesitan averiguar cuál será su innovación. Será lo más probable que los procesadores más rápidos e imágenes bonitas no sean lo suficientemente para motivar a los consumidores. Necesitan ellos reaccionar a lo que hemos hecho y necesitamos seguir innovando con el Wii U y lo haremos”.

Además, el día de hoy, fue anunciado por Nintendo que la compañía ha vendido 400.000 unidades del Wii U desde la fecha de lanzamiento.

La entrada de CNET también puede ser mitad correcta al tratarse de los gráficos del Wii U afirmando que “con soporte para HD y gráficos que casi igualan al del PlayStation 3 y Xbox 360, algunos dicen que es en realidad una forma de Nintendo para alcanzar a la generación actual y que la compañía puso en marcha el dispositivo demasiado pronto”. Ya que esta es la primera consola de alta definición de Nintendo, el Wii U ha sido lanzado  recientemente y todavía no hemos visto el verdadero potencial (gráfico) de la consola. Para ello, tendríamos que esperar un año o incluso más probable para que las empresas se acostumbren a desarrollar juegos para la consola, y aportar nuevas ideas para hacer uso del gamepad/tableta.

Aunque las próximas consolas de Microsoft y Sony podría llegar a ser más poderosas que la del Wii U, muchos más Wii se vendieron que los del PS3 y 360, mayormente debido a los precios de cada consola. ¿Podría ser difenrete esta nueva generación?

Nintendo también distribuyó unas nuevas fotos de ventas del Wii U durante el viernes negro.
