The power duo

Nintendo's E3 Digital Event has generated plenty of discussion, not all of it positive. There's been an incredibly downbeat response to the broadcast, with many fans complaining that Nintendo isn't giving them what they want.

Things appeared to be so bad that Nintendo president Satoru Iwata issued an apology on Twitter for the quality of the event, and that the company would "work to better meet expectations" in the future.

However, Nintendo of America boss Reggie Fils-Aime feels that the tone of the tweet has been misinterpretated, and that Iwata wasn't offering an apology at all.

Speaking to Polygon, he said:

It was not an apology. It was not a statement about the content we're showing, essentially it was an 'I hear you' message.

Mr. Iwata is in Japan and what he's trying to do is help explain to consumers in Japan what's going on at E3. The correct translation of his message was: 'Thank you for your feedback. We hear you and we are committed to continuing to meet your expectations,' was essentially his message.

Do you think Reggie is on damage limitation here, or does he have a point? Was Iwata's message lost in translation a little? Share your thoughts by posting a comment below.
