Miyamoto Talks Wii


Posted August 22, 2006 - By Stephen Johnson

I don't know about you, but I can't get enough of Wii-talk.

I'm practically a wii-tard. (Get it? ha! I kill me!)

Anyway, I enjoyed an interview I read with Nintendo visionary and Mario creator Shigeru Miyamoto, and I wanted to share it with you.

Some sample money quotes that some up the Wii philosophy (or, the "philosowii" as I call it):

Miyamoto: "Of course we're not rejecting current games, but an increasing number of people don't want to play games because they're hard, and a lot of people think games are irrelevant to them."

...People in the industry ask, 'Will simulations catch on after the RPG boom?' 'What genre is the game play?' 'Who made it?' We've lost site of essential enjoyment, which is the basis of gaming. In developing the Wii, we asked ourselves once more, 'What kind of game console do people want in their homes?'"

Read the whole thing, why-don'tcha?
