Miyamoto: Last Year, Nintendo was Short on the Fun

Written by pikaby

Quoted from Shigsy himself:

'Well, I think any entertainment products are less susceptible to changes in the economy. The fact that in 2009 we were not able to sell more than we did in 2008 was simply that in comparison, we were not able to produce fun-enough products. There are always ups and downs in this business. As long as we create unique and unprecedented experiences with video games, there should be nothing to worry about.'

You probably think so, Miyamoto, but I think most of us are on the fact that 2009 was a better year. You think Wii Fit and Animal Crossing: City Folk was fun, and to some extent, they are. But they're more geared to the casual crowd more than anything else.

In 2009, we had Punch-Out!!, New Super Mario Bros. Wii, and Metroid Prime Trilogy. Lots of good 3rd party offerings too, more than in 2008. I'll let you weigh the amount of dust that gathered on my Wii in 2008 and in 2009. I think the dust in 2009 weighs less.
