Maybe he made that goal with the mindset that even if he didnt make that goal he would have still would've done well. Why settle for less? Also I doubt he will step down from his position anytime soon; who's to say he wont follow the foot steps of the former CEO of Nintendo? Retire and become the biggest Nintendo share holder. :3

I only see GC 4.0 happening if I become a English major. Yeah... not happening.

so how was Iwata supposed to get more AAA games at Wii U launch? You guys do understand that a major new game like say a Zelda or Mario Galaxy takes thousands of manhours and a couple of years before it is ready, don't you? The Super Nintendo launched with 3 or 4 games and look how well that turned out.

Start production on games sooner? I don't know. It's not like Nintendo is some little indie company with limited resources. At the very least, Nintendo should have had the VC up and running on day one. Had they at least done that, I would have bought it at launch.

Yeah, you and maybe 5 other people. I find it hard to believe you were ever on VC-Reviews if you still think VC is that important to Nintendo...

I know it's not important to them anymore, and I know it's not a system seller. I'm just saying it should have been there at launch in some capacity. Even if it were only one or two games. Not having a system ready at launch really goes against the whole "learning from 3DS's mistakes", and all of this falls back on Iwata. In any case, I'm really not trying to harp on or argue about the launch. What's done is done. Back on topic, I think if Wii U sales pick up Iwata will be ok. If not, he's gone.

I was really hoping that the delay was due to Nintendo finally making some sort of account system. I like VC and have purchased a lot of games through it, but its sad how they pretty much killed most if not all the enthusiasm that surrounded it.

Four more months until Bayonetta 2.

I think VC has some importance. I mean, Nintendo was the first company to have motion control, and also kills the competition in retro titles.
The Wii mode is available regardless, so people who really want to play the games still can. BC is basically perfect on Wii U, with a complete Wii menu and everything. I think by the time they are able to get the Wii menu integrated into Wii U, the game lineup and features of the console are gonna be off the scale.
It took them 5 months to get VC and standard features working. I wouldn't necessary say they are lacking in an unbearable way, honestly.
Nintendo's not stupid. I'm sure they have plenty of reasons to take the time that they are.

As for Iwata, I think the Nintendo Directs are the greatest to show direct support to fans, and that's the way it needs to be. Nintendo doesn't mess around. They're getting their console ready for the next gen offerings one year ahead of Sony and Microsoft.
We're just gonna have to see how this all plays out.

Nintendo would be one tough company to be the CEO of and to try to grow beyond its core fanbase, without ruining its franchises trying to cash in on popular trends. Nintendo is a very eccentric company in many ways compared to its competitors and contemporaries even its japanese ones. if a new CEO were to come it to start popping profits theres no garauntee we will like that Nintendo and resulting culture/community or the subsequent lack thereof.

Its a gamble as always. glad im not in charge of who runs or doesnt run Nintendo.

Not gonna happen. The Wii system is completely separate from the Wii U. However, the update will help with the ability to go to the Wii Menu right away by holding B

I suppose you're right, but just for the record, Wii mode is technically software running off of Wii U circuitry.

Connecting with the people / consumers: hallmark of a good leader or CEO.

Miyamoto on his desire to focus more on the (hard)core Nintendo fan.

[The casual] attitude is, ‘okay, I am the customer. You are supposed to entertain me.’ [...] and to me it’s kind of a pathetic thing.

If you're referring to Nintendo Direct, he's preaching to the choir. Nintendo fans watch Nintendo Direct. What's important is connecting with people who are on the fence or have no intention of buying a Nintendo console. If he can bring those people over, like he did with the original Wii, he will be in good shape.

Just let the fans get hyped, get all the good games first, and spread the word. I'm sure Nintendo will have a bada$$ commercial once their market is more apparent. We can play games without a TV in most cases, VC, good online(IMO), Deluxe Digital is awesome, the games on there are some of the best on any console with much more on the way, Wii mode, motion control, NFC potential, etc. I could go on and on... Once Nintendo shows a commercial about Pokemon Rumble U with NFC, I can guarantee all the little kiddies are gonna be begging their parents for one.
With this controller and setup, devs can potentially create any software of any format for Wii U.
Did you see the iOS porting article a while back? Nintendo is part of the mobile market at home. The controller has a camera and Wii remotes are still supported. There are basically endless possibilities of interaction, and once people realize that, this thing is gonna sell like even hotter cakes.
If Nintendo makes that robot in the patent, I will pay $100 for that thing. How the heck is anyone gonna compete with a freaking robot that does your dishes? All they got to do is make it waterproof and pick up at least 10 lbs. for people to scan their credit card on the NFC thing(it's possible).

Word of mouth is better than the relation of company to consumer. If he can get the fans hyped, that'd be better than being able to try to convince a unsure consumer, cheaper as well. People are a lot more likely to listen to people they know than to the CEO of a big company.

I even remember Iwata saying 'please tell your friends about the WiiU', or something alike, in a past Nintendo Direct.

Sigh... yet another person who thinks Nintendo is only the Wii U.

EDIT: To put things into perspective, wondering if Sony's CEO is going to resign because one line of their TVs didn't do as well as they hoped would be just about the same thing you people are doing with Nintendo and the Wii U. Iwata is not going to resign. The company is making profit. Their stock is up. There is no reason for him to resign. You need to broaden your scope, OP.

Truthfully, we need to stop giving Iwata excuses. Nintendo gamers respect him because of Iwata Asks and ND's. He is a nice guy, and I really do like him, but that doesn't make him a good CEO.

While I think Ms. Blunt might sound hash on Iwata: But I can only think of one thing in regards to this:

I suppose you're right, but just for the record, Wii mode is technically software running off of Wii U circuitry.

And is an entirely separate system called a "legacy mode" where none of the Wii U functions would work. Integrating the menus together probably won't do much since you'll flip back and forth anyway.

People, get a hold of yourselves! Why on earth are you guys talking business to this? Doesn't Nintendo make you games that you like? Then shut up and play instead of counting the sales. Who are we to judge any business move or count how much money they're getting? We're gamers, our job is to play games, not do both. Sorry for my rudeness, but I'm truly sick of people just thinking they know everything about business and if the head of a company is doing well or not... Who are you to judge? Doesn't that guy make you games that you love in the end? God! Just face it, in no way you're getting a system that has EVERYTHING and that will appeal to EVERYONE. Oh, one more thing, why are you counting Nintendo out just yet? Have you not seen every freakin' launch of other systems? ALL systems, and by all, I mean ALL, have had slow launches, tons of things that needed to be fixed and a LOT of other problems, so you just see the Wii U and see that it's not perfect so you just count it out? Well, breaking news, no gaming console ever launched perfectly! And besides that, I am sure everything Nintendo is valid in their business view, we're not business analysts to know that, and the fact that they have people who do their business decisions and everything, we know nothing in terms of business compared to people who actually lived their lives studying business!

The Sony ceo did resign and Kaz took over and the company has been slowly getting rid of the fat and getting back to be profitable.

The problem with your logic is Sony is a multi department company. Sony could easily get rid of the none profitable parts of the company and focus on entertainment, gaming, imaging, and insurance where the company is doing very well. Nintendo doesn't have that Luxury and for a company that only has two platforms having one currently do back doesn't look that good .

Anywho he apparently has a year to turn the situation around so were going to find out this time next year if he decides to leave or is replaced.

'Tis true, but my main problem with Iwata is his conservative view of the market. There are times when he refuses to admit current trends in the market (like online, look up his quote from 2006-2007), and investors may become irritated if Nintendo refuses to go with trends just because they don't want to. At times, this does work in their favor (Wii) while sometimes this causes them to fall back.

Running the Wii mode while integrated would be preferable but I can't think of any console with a real OS that does it. The next xbox is rumored to have seemless BC but even that is rumored to need some weird 32X style add on machine.

I don't have a problem with Wii mode but I wish the wii shop channel was integrated with the eshop and when playing the game it would go into wii mode similar to the 3DS.
