Fils-Aime said he’s already envisioning ways that developers will innovate with future games. He pointed to some of the console’s features that aren’t on display in the launch line-up, such as the ability to play with two GamePads at once or utilize the console’s near-field communication technology to interact with other gadgets in the room.
‘‘I think that developers and consumers are ready for new experiences,’’ said Fils-Aime. ‘‘More than anything else, I think that’s what is driving excitement for Wii U. They've experienced what this generation has to offer. They’re ready for something new.’’
