The leader of the modern casual gaming revolution, Nintendo president Satoru Iwata, was not impressed with Apple's latest offering, the just-revealed iPad. In an interview with The New York Times, Iwata brushed away concerns the iPad would encroach on Nintendo's own offerings, like DS.
''It was a bigger iPod Touch," said Iwata.
Of course, Nintendo's own DSi XL is really just a bigger DS, too.
Iwata was equally dismissive of the potential for 3D video games in a post-Avatar world, and based on reaction around here from CES's 3D push, that's a feeling most TheFeed readers can get behind.
''I have doubts whether people will be wearing glasses to play games at home," he said, echoing a common criticism of the concept. "How is that going to look to other people?''
