This quote peeked my interest:

What I really want to do is be in the forefront of game development once again myself,” Miyamoto said. “Probably working on a smaller project with even younger developers. Or I might be interested in making something that I can make myself, by myself. Something really small.”

It seems like he wants to go back to a more hands-on approach where he himself actually comes up with and designs the core gameplay idea, I think. Pikmin was the last time he did something close to this I believe.

There are a lot of things he could do at Nintendo. i wonder if he would be able to make a good RPG?

The real question is if he is doing this voluntary or if he was forced to step down. In which case Nintendo still would like to keep him around, but not with as much power as he currently has, doing it in a manner that makes it look like everything is fine to the public. As far as I know, Miyamoto was heavily involved in the creation of the 3DS (moreso than with any previous system) and it was off to the worst start for a Nintendo handheld ever.

That was because of the price and lack of games if it was for the design it wouldn’t have sold more that the original DSs first year in 8 months

You can't use the price as an excuse for bad sales only to go on to ignore it when Nintendo subsidizes hardware. Besides, the design of the 3DS is what drove up its production costs and makes Nintendo lose money now.

Also, Miyamoto is responsible for the games Nintendo makes, so he's to blame for that point as well. You know, with great power comes great responsibility

 I think the high price was due purely because of hype  http://www.vooks.net/story-19610-Iwata-says-3DS-priced-high-because-of-hype.html .

There is nothing state of the art about 3ds. Yes, it is a naturally progressed dsi with a parallax barrier slapped on the top screen. In fact the production cost is probably even less than the ds/dsi (at their launches) because its uses a lot of the same assets of the ds at the depreciated costs (same cheaper?-ass cameras, same touch screen, same form factor etc). They just put a parallax barrier to clever use.

 They were losing money  because of very strong yen + slow sales of both home and handheld consoles + R&D(All never happend before simulatously, R&D are probably highest ever for WIIU if its true they are going after 3rd parties).  And they probably just made it sound like they were making a loss on 3ds after the cut. It would have sound kinda evil if they drop the price  by that margin and still boast that they are still making a profit.

Sigh, imagine how awesome the world would have been if this happened 30 years ago.

BTW this is a serious comment and not trolling or flaming. I blame Miyamoto and nintendo for the awful console gaming in 80s and 90s.

Illustrate this alternative history for me. Just, you know. Illuminate this darkness.

Hope all Big Nintendo's IP can survive without him.
But yeah, it's a good thing for him to step down when he still on the top. And last, can't wait to hear the news about his small new game project.

In my mind it's best to go out when your on top. There really is nothing he has touched that his fans and gamers don't enjoy. He can retire as an amazing success and icon.

I disagree. (not that he's going to stop making games now, but with that premise)

Going out on top is nice in theory, but in reality it means that we miss the whole downslope.

Even if he (or any big designer) designer isn't ever going to make a game better then there last one, they can still make games as good as past ones, and better then a lot of stuff lesser talented designers will make.

Me, I'd like to see every television show end only when enough people say it's crap, atheltes quit only after they've been washed up, and artists only stop making work when their audiences are no longer interested.  (Assuming plot points or story validity aren't comromised. IE, story being dragged out for more seasons, character meant to die lives because they need to for the plot to stick around.)

Update: This was just a rumor and Miyamoto is not changing his role with the company in any way.  Check ign.com  

Finnally. In with the new.

Above: still the best game of the year.

Party's canceled.

well as long as he will still supervising Mario and Zelda until he dies i will be happy!
