Former PlayStation America boss praises Nintendo and the Wii

Former PlayStation America boss Jack Tretton discusses Nintendo and the surprising success of the Wii in this IGN interview. You can hear him talk about it at 33:30...

This is the quote as transcribed by Nintendo Everything...

''I think this industry wouldn’t be where it is today if it wasn’t for Nintendo, so everybody respects the fact that they had such a hand in building this great industry that we’ve all been able to work in, but from generation to generation, you never knew what you would get with Nintendo. You just knew that you couldn’t could them out. And I think everyone discounted the Wii initially, and it really took the world by storm. I’d say there were a lot more people in the surprise camp then there were in the ‘I told you so’ camp. Maybe a few people at Nintendo, but the vast majority were skeptical when that came out.''
