The Nintendo Wii has a reputation of not being for the “core gamer.” Save for a few games, the system’s library is full of party titles and mini game collections; but it was never supposed to be that way according to Nintendo President Satoru Iwata.

“There was a misunderstanding that Nintendo was dedicated to such games at some stage of the lifespans of the Wii and the Nintendo DS,” Iwata said in an interview with IGN. “We have made efforts to develop video games that are in tune with various consumer tastes; however, we have not been able to gain adequate consumer understanding regarding our intentions, while in the common perception there are no or few core users playing Nintendo platforms, which is not the case.”

Iwata has been talking about the creation of the Wii, while trying to contain fears that the Wii U is in development trouble.
