Reggie: No one would want Move when they have Wii

Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Reggie: No one would want Move when they have Wii

I believe this is relevant here.

Reggie is interviewed by a pinhead

Just look at the questions James Brightman asks Reggie Fils-Aime. How sad. What is most pathetic are the questions that begin with… “Pachter said…” Can you journalists not think for yourselves? There are more “analysts” out there than just Pachter. Why don’t you start quoting them too just so we can at least have some diversity of thought?

Years ago I used to like reading interviews with the Nintendo execs. Now, there is no point in reading them because the questions are nothing more than Industry cliches. “Why aren’t you making Wii HD?” “Is the Wii a fad?” “Will the new motion controllers destroy the Wii?”

I wish game journalism was ‘high definition’. Good grief!

Heck, this comment is pretty much Malstrom's points (and I know superadriank also quoted it):

"people don't seem to want to look at propositions from the consumer viewpoint. And I think that's very troubling. We're constantly thinking about how the consumer is thinking about the product. How do they approach it? What's in it for them? Why should I as a consumer open my wallet or pocketbook to buy product X? We constantly think about that, because in the end, if the experience isn't compelling enough, if the value isn't strong enough – and value meaning what you get for what you pay – then there's nothing in it for the consumer. And a product will die. I can look back over the last 2-3 years with products that have died in the marketplace, because they were not thought of from the consumer point of view."

This shows Reggie and Nintendo didn't make the Wii come in first by magic. They made if for the consumer, not the gaming community.



A flashy-first game is awesome when it comes out. A great-first game is awesome forever.

I want game journalism to die a slow, painful death. Seriously.



He does have a point. I own a Wii and a PS3 and I'm still not sure I'd like to spend $100 to get this. I wouldn't even consider it if I didn't have a PS3 in the first place.

When some feel obligated to give Wii games a lower score because it doesn't meet what they think the games should be (the IGN review of NSMBWii), the gaming press doesn't deserve to report games. They've turned into fox news, but without the fun of laughing at the idiocy.

I think Reggie was awesome. He laid it out flat and destroyed the argument that people will replace their Wiis with PS3s. In addition he showed why he is the top dog and why Tretton is begging for scraps from his table.

Good one Reggie, nice to see some powerful but fair and honest PR.



Do you know what its like to live on the far side of Uranus?

Their article "Blinded by Mario" scrapes the bottom of the barrel.



Rockstar: Announce Bully 2 already and make gamers proud!

Kojima: Come out with Project S already!

After reading this, the only thing that came to my mind was: Why are all the questions seem like questions from a fanboy dumbass and the Nintendo questions full of logic?

Not familiar with industrygamers, I take it?

Hmmm. . . one thing that jumps out at me is that "[Reggie] has a lot of respect for Michael [Pachter]". I find this weird since Pachter is so reviled around here, and has said some pretty negative stuff regarding Nintendo. I guess that's the difference between being a professional in the industry and a forum poster on the interwebs.
