I've never felt sad when somebody famous died.
But today, somehow, I'm close to tears, although I didn't even know him.

Deeply saddened by this news. RIP Iwata-San. You will be missed.

Predictions for LT console sales:

PS4: 120M

XB1: 70M

WiiU: 14M

3DS: 60M

Vita: 13M

I'm so, so sad to hear this. He was a great man, and left such a huge legacy with the Wii, DS, and their successors. He literally impacted hundreds of millions of lives. He'll be sorely missed :(. RIP

Looking back on it, you can see it. He really lost a lot of weight over the last couple years and it never looked like he put it back. This is most likely why he didn't go to E3 this year and it makes sense. Travel in his condition would have been a bad idea. And this whole time he was thinking of nothing but turning the company around, even in his condition. I hope you rest in peace, Iwata. You deserve it.

I noticed that too. Esp. when my mother (who suffered from pancreatic cancer) went through very similar symptoms of weight loss like Mr. Iwata. When all things are clear, I hope they hire someone who will continue running the company like the way he did during the Wii and DS era.
