Nintendo president Satoru Iwata has told investors that the company can’t solely blame poor software sales on rampant piracy.
“I do not think we should attribute bad software sales solely to piracy”
“It is true there is always the influence of piracy, but it is important for us to increase the number of our consumers who are willing to shell out their money to purchase our products. So, we do not intend to think that slower sales are solely due to piracy.”
