Youichi Wada Says Xbox 360, PS3 Too "Over-Engineered"
06.12.07 - 4:07 PM

Youichi Wada shocked the world when he announced that the next iteration of the Dragon Quest series would be landing on Nintendo's newest portable platform, the DS. He explained that the DS allowed Square Enix to reach the "widest array of people", and would expand the series even beyond those who are fans now. Wada also slams the 360 and PS3, explaining that, "There are too many specs - and you also need a high-definition TV, a broadband connection, and a deep knowledge of gaming - these consoles are mismatched to today's environment. In a year or two years, they will fare better."

Wada also believes that the gaming landscape is far different, with there being no clear leader in consoles. "[Whereas] in the old days, we could just focus on the PlayStation or the Game Boy, the environment has changed completely," stated Wada. With the hardcore no longer being the main driver of sales, Wada believes, "we have to make games for all kinds of people."
