Forums - Nintendo Discussion - EA Says Miyamoto Is Falling Down On The Job

EA’s Chief Creative Officer, Richard Hilleman, says that Shigeru Miyamoto has fallen down on the job and has handed over the gauntlet to Steve Jobs and Apple. Hilleman says that children used to learn from video games designed by Shigeru Miyamoto, now they are increasingly turning to smartphones and tablets to get their handheld gaming fixes.

“I thank Miyamoto for that,” he said of the Nintendo designers historical contribution to games. “But he’s falling down on the job. And for the past five years that job has been taken over by a dead guy from Cupertino.”

Predictions for LT console sales:

PS4: 120M

XB1: 70M

WiiU: 14M

3DS: 60M

Vita: 13M

EA has precisely what right to talk about a company that they refuse to do business with?

Monster Hunter: pissing me off since 2010.

They have as much right as anyone else, even more so considering they are in the video game industry.   

Is it because he is right that them saying this upsets you?  

Lulz. What? Also, 'learning' from videogames? I thought they were for fun.

Yeah, bad-mouthing Miyamoto is a great way to improve the public perception of your company. I'm out, going to play PIKMIN 3 (a game Miyamoto apparently made lying down).

Lol, just an all around lame comment, including the "dead" guy remark. EA you can be a little more PC for sure.

This thread will be spicy.

Is this a joke? A representative from one of the most exploitative and unreliable gaming companies in the world talking trash about a living legend like Miyamoto? I'm speechless.

Hey, isnt EA like worst company of the year? if i recall 2 or 3 years in a row
