Nintendo Europe PR person Laurent Fischer caused some nerdy waves when he said only "geeks and otaku" want a hard drive for their Wii.

He wants you to know she's really, really sorry.

“I have huge respect for those who, like me, share a common passion for Nintendo and want to make it clear that I would never use and I didn’t use this terminology in such a context or way to cause offense,” he told

“I regret that this misunderstanding has created such offense and disappointment within the community.”

Do you feel better now? Let's hug.
