    The interview is way too long. I'll wait until a news site releases a summary.

    Do what every reputable news source does, cherry pick the text for intriguing and/or controversial bits and then quote them out of context.

    Then slap a sensationalistic title on the whole thing, something like "Lying CEO: Miyamoto leads by misleading", and you're all set.

    Swapnote has had 10 million handwritten exchanged in just four weeks. Come on Nintendo if that isn't a sign that everyone wants a simple chat implanted in the firends list. XD

    I'm not getting paid for this. :P I haven't read the entire interview though.

    If someone else is willing to, that's cool.

    i would give up the web browser for a chat (not pussy letters) that you can open in-game.

    letterbox takes forever to open.

    ZzzZzZzzzzzzzZZzZzZZZZzzZZZzzzzzzz................... :sleep:

    What a boring Q&A, maybe you should change the title to say that it's about sales statistics and strategies. I came here expecting more info on the Wii U etc. :glare:

    It's actually a pretty interesting piece with details on Nintendo's current thought's about 3DS marketplace positioning and the future for consolidation of the company. It's Iwata and Miyamoto for heaven's sake!

    Why call it a Q&A, Nintendo, when it leaves one with a lot many questions. "You will see soon", "They will decide and come up with a solution best for all" -Perhaps do a Q&A when it's all decided? :P

    What I got from reading most of it:

    Nintendo is greedy and doesn't want to offer downloadable full 3ds games at a discount.

    Nintendo is still living in hello kitty world.

    Nintendo is still behind the times.

    Nintendo repeating their mistakes they made with cards and refuse to make big changes required for keep up with the rest of the gaming world

    If you're interested in that kinda stuff, then it's a decent read. I was looking for more info on Wii U, but unfortunately...

    You're an idiot.

    Anyways, interesting read. Bit wordy I suppose, but at least they went into detail and answered everything to show that they are taking it seriously.

    So, it'll be just like the Wii.
    They don't want to enter the "Microsoft vs. Sony" fight.
