Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime has confessed during an investors meeting that he has genuinely given up understanding why the media reports certain things about Nintendo. Fils-Aime was asked by Nintendo president Satoru Iwata why a reporter in the United States had said that Nintendo wouldn’t be at this year’s E3 event, to which he replied that he had given up a long time ago trying to figure out why people report what they do.
“I was emailing back and forth with Mr. Iwata a couple of weeks ago and he asked me why one reporter in the U.S. was saying that Nintendo ‘wouldn’t even be at E3’ this year.
I told him I gave up a long time ago trying to figure out why people report what they do.
But we do understand that changing our approach this year may have caused some confusion. Our reasoning is pretty simple — different people come to the show with different needs. And most of you have seen how it’s played out by now.”
