Shigeru Miyamoto Comments On Sony Home And 360

Posted by Sammy Barker

Sony announced their "Home" service recently, a system that allows you to take control of an interactive human and interact in a digital world.

Shigeru Miyamoto said:

“Nintendo years ago considered and rejected the type of approach Sony is now taking. Clearly Nintendo’s Miis have become a cultural phenomenon in their own right, appealing well beyond the traditional core gamer audience, and the process of populating them across the Wii universe is just beginning."

He then went on to talk about the XBOX 360:

“Wii handily outsold them in January, both in Europe and on a worldwide basis. We are very optimistic. Microsoft recently lowered the sales outlook for its entertainment and device division for the second half of its fiscal year because it had excess inventory of Xbox 360s on store shelves. At the same time, we cannot keep Wii on store shelves and Nintendo is forecasting record profits across the board.”

I'm still kinda of sceptical of the Wii success, its done great so far but its gonna need a decent flow of good games to keep everything moving...

Very true. The flow of software is drying up now, and with games like Super Mario Galaxy and Metroid 3 still waaaaay off Nintendo will need to encourage 3rd parties to fill the void with decent titles, not just licenced pap. But I have to be honest, I'm more happy with my Wii than I was with my Cube or PS2 when I first bought them. Perhaps it's because my daughter is enjoying it so much!
