We can all agree that Nintendo has an amazing creative team working on building their products. But one department that Nintendo needs to focus on, is the damn design team. Nintendo’s latest system “Wii U” has the same shape and color similar to an Xbox 360 HD-DVD player. For a company that leads in innovation –the least they can do is give the new system a modern look. I am sure we can all agree that the all white console/Xbox 360 HD-DVD Player look, is so 2006.
Here is what the HD-DVD player would look next to the Wii U controller. As you can see, some white paint and a disc loading slot is all that is separating the two. You can probably trace the bodies of both and find it to be almost identical.
Now, wouldn’t this design look much better today?
