The recently-concluded E3 2016 has given a trove of information on all the new and upcoming titles and also the content for the current ones.
Strauss Zelnick, president of Take-Two Interactive, has shared his opinion on two of the upcoming hardware – Nintendo NX and PlayStation VR — during his interview with the Street.
Take-Two owns publishers and developers like Rockstar Games and 2K Games and it had a good show at the E3 2016, as they showcased gaming titles like "Mafia III," "Sid Meier's Civilization VI," "WWE 2K17" and "NBA 2K17."
Zelnick showed his enthusiasm when it came to Nintendo NX, which is expected to be rolled out in Spring 2017.
"It could be very exciting. You never want to count Nintendo out. They go quiet for a while and then they come to market and do something really exciting. We are very interested and watching closely the development of what Nintendo plans to do next," he was quoted as saying.
However, his enthusiasm for Sony's PlayStation VR was dimmed down. Speaking to the Street about virtual technology, he had noted that though there are some hardware in the marketplace, there aren't many software that are available currently. He added that it has to be seen if these platforms that would be powerful are also commercially viable.
"The way we look at all new technology is we're here to delight consumers. And if they find a piece of hardware compelling, it's our job to develop and deliver the software to make that the most exciting entertainment experience that one could have"
But he showed less enthusiasm for PlayStation VR, which is coming this October 13. He noted that though Sony are experts in interactive entertainment and are a standard in the world, they are also well-positioned. "But we still don't know how the consumer will respond to VR," he said.
