Actually you may have a point, I just think the timeline will be longer. It would be bad timing to step down right after your competition releases their new thing.

People keep saying the Xbox One doesn't have Backwards Compatibility.
I don't think they know what Backwards Compatibility means...

Hopefully Iwata takes it easy and doesn't KarĊshi himself.

I'm sure Nintendo has some big games this summer and fall. I just wish they had some sort of Plan B for the spring when all of this happened...

That's what I thought so. Though talking about Iwata getting fired I don't think this is going to happen. Japanese had this Bushido honor code. They rather resign than get fired eventually.

Is this conversation still happening? Iwata is now chairing the Executive Board of NoA.

It looks to me that, given the news that Iwata (sic) has turned round a loss of 43bn yen to a profit of 7.1bn yen over the last fiscal year, he's now tasked with increasing the American market share.

ye see certain people on here are facinated with somehow starting a kickstarter to get Iwata fired, but you are right he has turned the corner and has rode out the storm but alas financial sense sometimes eludes certain people Iwata FTW.
