Molyneux struggles to see anything amazing in Wii U
Click Here to View Story

A portion of an IGN interview with Peter Molyneux...

IGN: What are your thoughts on what Nintendo is doing with the Wii U overall?

Peter Molyneux: I struggle to see anything amazing coming out of Nintendo. There are a few, “Oh, that’s smart,” but there’s nothing that makes me rush out as a consumer to buy the new device. I’ll give you a great example of how tech should be used. It’s what Nintendo did with the Wii when it first came out. They introduced motion control. They were one of the first companies to introduce motion control and they had a fantastic Wii Sports Game. As soon as I picked up the controller and started waving it around, I got it. I already understood it. But I’m not sure there’s a same sort of application out there for Wii U. I think to myself, “Well, what’s the reason to get it?” Do you see what I mean?

I don't know what to make of Molyneux nowadays. I'll admit to liking some of the games he makes (I do love me some Fable), but he says odd things. I saw an interview this past E3 where Molyneux himself started to ask questions to the new director of Fable: The Journey about things like "well what if I want to play the game with a normal controller?" Uh... hello Peter... you were at the company when the game started development! You presented it on stage even! The decision to make it a Kinect game was yours when you were still there, so why are you asking this to a guy I'm sure you knew to begin with?

i can't stand this guy. he acts like if you put two screens in front of him he wont know what to do. its really not that difficult but he likes to make it sound that way.

Peter Molyneux is an idiot. All his "ideas" never make it in games, he lies about promises, and his games have gotten progressively worse. It's about damn time everyone in the gaming world turned their backs on him and ignored him.

Peter Molyneux is to video games what Tim Tebow is to the NFL: All hype, no results.

Actually, I take that back. At least Tim Tebow had results. Some results, but not much.

Sorry for the comparison to Molyneux, Mr. Tebow., as much as I despise those who hype you.

Most western developers didn't get too involved with the original DS throughout its life, and their ignorance of this sorta of "new" way of playing shows in many ways. They have no experience, so now, they need to start learning to do anything useful with the two screens. The same can be said about the Wii U and motion and pointer controls.

These guys have had 2 full generations to try out new ideas. Today we could have been discussion newer ways to expand on those ideas of old and try bigger, better things with the tech.

More like he doesn‘t know how to implement the GamePad in a game.

"Molyneux struggles to see anything amazing in Wii U" is the title of the article.

IMO, the title should be "Molyneux struggles to see anything amazing in Wii U; gamers struggle to see anything amazing in Molyneux."

How curious, as I'm struggling to see anything amazing on Curiosity aside from the promise of curse words and genitalia, and I already have the internet for both.

Sounds like Molyeux has not tried the console. Maybe he should go to Best Buy or GameStop before making stataemets like this. Because in this case, most of us hear have more experience with the console than he does -- even though IGN is interviewing him.

You buy a new console to have fun playing games, not just because it is as innovative as the spork.

...So that means we'll see Molyneux stay far away from ever developing something on the Wii U?

If that means this is the only quote I ever see from him posted on this site, I don't see how that is anything but good news.

Molyneux struggles to see anything amazing in Wii U

Is he really that stupid? How can he not get what the Wii U can do? He just sounds like a hater. Every time his name comes up in the title of some news here, you can bet there's nothing but bad news inside. He rarely says something good about Nintendo (like that bit he said about Wii Sports up there) but I don't see why he has to sound so hostile when he comments on what he doesn't like. Very unprofessional. I don't think Nintendo or Miyamoto have said anything bad about him so I don't get what his issue is. Then again, when you're on the spotlight as much as Nintendo has been lately, you can't expect every comment and opinion to be favorable :P.
