* Wired interviews Miyamoto

Gamecube/Nintendo
Wired News has an interview with Shigeru Miyamoto and it's a great read.

Wired News: The Japanese games industry is in trouble, as sales keep dropping. What is Nintendo doing to get things going again?

Shigeru Miyamoto: I don't really think it's a Japanese problem. I think it's an industrywide and worldwide issue. In fact, I'm surprised how well the U.S. has held up; I think the U.S. is more the exception rather than the rule.

What's happening with video games is the same thing that happens with anything new and interesting. At the beginning, everybody wants to see what it is. They gather around and check it out. But gradually, people start to lose interest.

The people who don't lose interest become more and more involved. And the medium starts to be influenced by only those people. It becomes something exclusive to the people who've stuck with it for a long time. And when the people who were interested in it at first look back at it, it's no longer the thing that interested them.
He's got some great insights into games, and I'm really looking forward to some of his newer titles. Of course, first I have to get my grubby fingers on a copy of Kirby Canvas Curse.
