Iwata, Apple Is Not A Competitor


Satoru Iwata, the President of Nintendo said he doesn’t like attempts to paint Apple and his company as rivals. In an interview with The Wall Street Journal, Iwata is an Apple fan himself, carrying an iPhone and using a Mac laptop on a regular basis. He claims the two companies appeal to different consumers, and says that attempts to create a rivalry make him “uncomfortable.”

    Iwata-san just got a +1 from me. Of all the current Bosses of gaming giants – he is the least intimidating. I doubt there are rooms for Apple to work with Nintendo in the hardware side of things – maybe software. But it will surely be an interesting partnership if anything were to come out of it. Two of the best tech companies in the world.

    Iwata is the right guy for the job, eh.

    It’s true! Collaboration is a good thing. Look at IEEE.

    Competition is good, but one too many confuses customers with the standards. Pick one and sophisticate it already!
