Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment president Martin Tremblay has said the firm is still confident in Wii U, it’s just the console got off to a slow start.

Speaking with GI International during E3, Tremblay said the company is on every console’s team.

“Honestly, we hope everybody’s going to work out. It’s just good for the industry,” he said. “I think [Wii U] has been off to a slow start, but I think they’re going to fix the problem.

“I don’t think it’s a problem, but it’s more about the content. And I think they showed tons of new content [at E3] that will re-energize the platform.”

Tremblay said he is also pleased with PS4’s price point, calling it “spot-on,” and with Xbox One, he said he didn’t expect Warner to change its business model from what it is currently.

“You’ve got to listen to your consumers,” Tremblay said. “You’ve got to listen to people playing the game. That’s very important. I think I was a little bit surprised [over the Xbox One used games stance], to be honest. Now that we see that coming and we see what people want, just go with it. That’s the way I look at it.”
