Miyamoto CNN Interview

Post by John » Sat Apr 28, 2007 6:18 pm

Hi everyone,

CNN Talk Asia had an interview with Shigeru Miyamoto and they posted 22 minutes of video (I think the entire interview) and a transcript of it online. It's really cool to hear the genius retrospect about his career.

The video is broken into three parts:

*Shigeru Miyamoto reflects on his career in the video gaming industry.
*Anjali Rao plays a game of tennis with Shigeru Miyamato on the Nintendo Wii.
*Shigeru Miyamoto gives us an insight into the Nintendo gaming philosophy.

Here is the link:

Enjoy! :)

It's interesting. It's clear, and I guess we all knew, he is after the people who enjoy running a bit of string across the lawn and playing tennis for an afternoon in summer. Or throwing a ball for a dog. Which is I guess pretty much everyone. Especially those that can't run a bit of string, which in Japan is probably a significant portion of the population. ...but then the weather in the UK...

but we're never going to see a Virtua Fighter or a God of War looky-like from Nintendo either. I suppose 3rd party support is for that.
