The Nintendo Wii has become a very successful console, but after time, its decline has been more and more significant, and according to EA Games label head Frank Gibeau, Nintendo is about to deliver the "second act".

In an interview with Industry Games, Gibeau was talking about how Nintendo should take further steps to get the advantage over the Wii's HD competitors.

"When you look at Nintendo, for a while there, it was all about the Wii being the biggest entertainment platform ever and capturing the mass market, and it faded away.

"Now, they're coming back with a second act. I think they know that. They're very self-aware as an organisation and a very powerful brand," said Gibeau

"They understand the dynamics and the fact that HD consoles is a booming part of business right now...They're not stupid. They're going to figure something out. They're going to come back at it," he added.

Gibeau also went on to mention that if Nintendo do make a Wii 2, there has to be a greater focus given to the third-party publishers, like EA.
