Does He Have A degree
Addressing investors on numerous subjects (together with Nintendo’s poor press conference at E3 2009), Nintendo president Satoru Iwata made a curious touch upon why the Wii Vitality Sensor is getting such a flat response:
“When we make some new announcement and if there isn’t a optimistic initial response from the market, I strive to consider it as an excellent sign because that can be mens spiderman t shirt interpreted as individuals reacting to something groundbreaking.”
A lot of writers are railing on Iwata for this comment, calling him out of touch or ridiculously optimistic, however I think he has some extent. When rumors of the Nintendo DS first surfaced, most of my industry mates thought it was silly. When it seemed like Nintendo was going with an underpowered console with a motion controller, most of my business friends thought it was amazingly lame. Nintendo has been serving up tons of crow over the last few years.
All that said, there’s one significant distinction between the Wii Vitality Sensor and the two aforementioned gaming programs — everybody I do know was charmed when they first saw the DS and Wii in motion. The identical can’t be mentioned for the Vitality Sensor, which left nearly everybody I know with a profound sense of, “WTF ! “
What do you make of Iwata’s comments Does he have a degree Is he out of touch Or maybe all the cash he’s made off of the DS mens spiderman t shirt and Wii have made him an eternal optimist
