* Nintendo brushing off criticisms

Printer-friendly page Print this story   Email this to a friend
Despite Revolution seeming "underpowered", Nintendo is supremely confident as always.

And why shouldn't they be? They've got a few nice tricks up their sleeves, such as the entire past library available for download.

Iwata noted the game market is still expanding in the United States, unlike the troubled Japanese market. However, he warned some disturbing signs are emerging there that indicate the industry there may be headed toward difficulty.

The gap between games that sell and games that don't sell is growing in the United States, and many people are wondering why games look alike, falling into the same categories such as action, sports and movie-inspired, Iwata said.

Nintendo is taking a different strategy through Revolution, which is expected to be less powerful than its competitors. It will blend more easily in the living room because it's only about the size of three DVD cases and has a wireless remote controller, Iwata said.
As long as it's at or smaller than the size of my VCR, I really don't care about the size - it's the games that make the difference.
