    NoA Vs NoJ During the GC, May Explain the Wii

    Interesting interview from Nintendo marketing guy and similarity with GC and Wii U | IGN Boards

    Really interesting, so Nintendo felt screwed and made the under powered wii, cause of that....

    “And then at the end [of the presentation], Reggie looked around the table and basically said “Look, don’t bullshit me. How do you guys really think this thing is going to hold up?
    B-damned Reggie. I don't know why but I can VERY CLEARLY imagine him saying this in my head..

    Yea, what I find interesting is the cultural divide between NoA and NoJ, look at the indies in NA vs JP.

    Also funny NoJ thought Geist would be their Halo.

    They're touting for more traffic, so they can make more revenue. I'm not sure we want half the people that post on front page articles (take a look if you don't believe me).

    Someone already posted this. I can't find the link to the thread, however. It's interesting but it's still one man's opinion. It seems he spouted off about many Nintendo related subjects and I'm not sure how accurate an employee in the marketing department might be on the matter. What I do agree with is that NOJ should listen more carefully to NOA on the matter of the cultural divide between East and West. They need people who understand both cultures and can translate for the people at the top in NOJ and the higher ups need to learn to listen. If they had that in place then perhaps Nintendo would alter its tactics and might be in a better position going forward.
