Nintendo Not Concerned With Being First to Market With Next Gen Console

Satoru Iwata has stated that Being first to the market with the Wii U is not that important.  Sure the advantage of launching before the other two players does put them ahead of the game, but what is more important is price. “One of the reasons we believe this is the time for Nintendo to launch the Wii U is it’s going to be important for the world.” Said Iwata.
