Shigeru Miyamoto: Telling Microsoft & Sony To Get Real

During a recent interview with BBC, the god of Nintendo, Shigeru Miyamoto – the creator of Donkey Kong, Zelda, Mario and WiiFit just to name a few – gave a demeaning laugh at it’s competitors when asked ” …Microsoft unveiled a completely hands-free controller, and Sony unveiled twin-handed motion sensor. Are you in danger of getting left behind by the competition? …”. Continue to read his full response in polite-Japanese-sub-context-filled reply which basically translates to “The fuck you talking about …?”

Shigeru Miyamoto’s reply:

Not worried at all. The fact that both of those companies are looking at finding ways to get the gamer off the couch, taking advantage of Motion Controller, and really getting the gamer to control the game by moving their body, shows that No. 1 they’ve looked at what we’ve done with Wii, and seen the value in that. And now they’re moving in the same direction that we have already established. … We’ve been experimenting with motion control for over five years now. Based on the announcements we’ve seen here at E3, it seems these other two companies have really only been experimenting with this only very recently. … It looks like they’re still in their initial stages and are trying to create experiences that at this point don’t have the type of depth that we’re able to provide with Wii Motion Plus.
