Wikipedia - Sony Pictures Digital and The Carphone Warehouse used Mobiclip software to deliver TV-like full length movies on MicroSD memory cards for smart phones.
The video compression technology offered by Mobiclip was an optimized response to the battery life and video quality requirements of Nintendo mobile video gaming platforms: Game Boy Advance, Game Boy Advance SP and Nintendo DS.

“When we make some new announcement and if there is no positive initial reaction from the market, I try to think of it as a good sign because that can be interpreted as people reacting to something groundbreaking. ...if the employees were always minding themselves to do whatever the market is requiring at any moment, and if they were always focusing on something we can sell right now for the short term, it would be very limiting. We are trying to think outside the box.” - Satoru Iwata - This is why corporate multinationals will never truly understand, or risk doing, what Nintendo does.
