This is fine



The dude didn't have to apologize at all for talking figuratively. Besides the Iwata comment, everything is on point.



He also programmed Earthbound. Made Kanto AND Johto fit in Gold and Silver. And saved Melee from getting delayed. He was a great many of many great talents who was taken from us far too soon.

Is that why the Switch is currently #1 and #16 on Amazon despite being sold at $420?

"It killed Iwata" yeah, I guess that was a poor choice of words there.



Poor choice of words regarding Iwata, but I don't see anything wrong with the rest of what he's saying. He's correct in that some of Nintendo's way of thinking is outdated and needs to change. Of course, he was clearly wrong when he said that he thinks the Switch will be unsuccessful, but so what? That was just his opinion. People have been wrong about things like that on almost every new console that's released, so I don't see why that would matter to anyone.

He was wrong about:

- The specs of the Switch (he said it only had 2GB of RAM when it has 4GB)

- Nintendo using cartridges being a mistake: did he forget about the PSP fiasco with the UMD? Rampant piracy, awful loading times, easy to break, etc.

- The Switch being unsuccesful. It was already obvious by April that the Switch would be a success. 

- He was wrong (and distasteful about Iwata)

- He's wrong about Nintendo not advertising games unless they release on the same date as other versions. 

- He's wrong when he says the Wii wasn't succesful.

A person who issues an apology should do it properly and owe up to everything that was wrong. Refering to virtually everything as an opinion doesn't make it defensible or even acceptable.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.
