Iwata Fed Up With Inaccurate Reports In The Media

satoru_iwata_wii_u_gamepad

Nintendo president Satoru Iwata has told investors and analysts that he is fed up with inaccurate reports spread by mainstream media outlets. Iwata says his words are often taken out of context to amplify animosity. He confesses that he has no way to control the flow of information spread throughout the internet. Here’s what he had to say.

“Some media reports have, without asking or referring to official announcements, without confirming and reporting as if announced — that is, taking some of my words out of context and rewriting them to amplify animosity and reporting as if I had said it. So when considering media influence and the content of reports and whether they’d be misread, it may be refuted. So when ignoring such a report would be a big minus, I may actively respond. I cannot control information flow on the Internet. Because there may always be some very unfortunate or regrettable information transmitted, refuting would only help to spread it. I take great care in deciding how to respond so as not to upset stock holders. Nintendo Direct is most-watched not on PC, but eShop. In that way there can be a direct channel to customers. By distributing info reliably, even if there are bad reports, not as big a problem.”

Thanks, Why u Mad? and Wum

    1. Uhh hello! I think iwata is braive 4 speking 2 investers abot the maner. hes so smert, and so handsum, and has a grate sence of humer!!! his hare is grate 2 becuase i love it!!!

      1. Thaht picture of yours is taken on phone rezolution just doesnt make it to be qualified to as ultra hd. That means you cant join on ultra hd brotherhood which is full of fat 30 year old virgins who still live with their parents, who stink. Im gonna eat hamburger now and put hdmi cable in my ass.

  1. I think it’s hilarious that Why u mad? tipped the bloggers here for once.
    As for the article, it’s the media’s job to spin everything so it sounds better. Just take everything with a grain of salt cause you can never tell what’s really accurate nowadays.

      1. Oh yes.
        He was first before even being first.

        Say what you want about that guy, he is fucking DEDICATED.

  2. In other words, the mainstream media is doing absolutely everything it can to doom Nintendo, with select people taking such words as gospel like the mindless sheep they are.

    I might be wrong in my surmising.

    1. Translation: I don’t know exactly what he’s saying, but the media sucks and yay Iwata!?

  3. Nintendo Direct Channle. if it means it’s gonna be on 3ds and wii u I can’t wait

      1. typical nintendo fanboy: hey umm yeah i just put my mouse over your avatar it says you are a nintendo fan but……….. im NOT ok with that because it said you like SONY and PC. so in conclusion i DO have a problem with that and how ARE YOU going to FIX THAT!!!!!!! get out of here if you arnt dedicated all towards nintendo you drone!!!!!! also that avatar is from sony WTF this is a nintendo site for nintendo fans!!!!!!

          1. wait one minute……. so i put my mouse over yours to and it said you like nintendo but…….. it also said you are a sony fan…… get the fuck off of our precious website if your going to pull that shit. also your avatar is a sony one, what did WE nintendo fans have to deserve YOUR filthy sonydrone type on OUR website!!!!!! im sick of your type ruining the website so either leave or JUST GET OUT before us nintendo fans force you!!!!!!

            1. Wait so my avatar is the same as Angelixshadow’s and he’s a Nintendo and Sony fan? epic…

            1. Yea, Killzone ShadowFall :D I used to have the same avatar as him… and tank you :3

                1. Yes, I’m using the same avatar, because I like it, I don’t see the problem, and Nintendofan55 already knows that as well. :)

                  1. Nothing wrong with that :)

                    If I had the chance to use that avatar, I would. It looks pretty cool, it also makes me want to get kill zone 4, but I can’t afford to buy two systems and its games at once.

        1. 1) You are absolutely right, I like both Sony and Nintendo because are my main reasons why I’m a gamer today, and also I have a gaming PC to play all those “graphics demanding games”, I don’t see any kind of problem with that Icea, If you don’t like it, that is not my problem dude. 2) I like this site because is one of the most accurate Nintendo blogs out there. 3) Note: Your last sentence is right, this is a Nintendo site for Nintendo fans, but I’m a Nintendo fan as well… so.. yeah, my point is clear enough. :)

          1. He’s joking lol. Seeing that your response was respectful, shows that you are mature (unlike some >.>). This site needs more people like you and Nintendofan55.

            1. hahahahhahah geeze cant believe he thought i wasnt kidding. also correction to you sir that is angleixshadoe not nintendofan55!!!! yes your welcome, no please dont get mad (throughs beer bottle) hey stop!!!!! thats not cool!!!!!!

              1. Don’t worry, I already knew you was making a joke Icea, but remember that I love to give good and complete answers to everything, even if I don’t know English very well. XD

  4. I don’t own a Wii U so, sorry for my ignorance.
    Can you watch the Directs on the Wii U eshop just like in 3DS?
    If yes, can you watch them in HD? or is it just SD all the the time.

  5. Considering the content of this article, should I believe the way this has been reported?

    :P

  6. hahaha, Iwata is more full of lies then the whole world put together. pikmin 3, a launch title? in you dreams Iwata. Now you get to taste the bitterness of lies, serves you right, wata prat.

    1. ^ Anonymous said ‘Iwata is…right’.
      Now that’s what I call
      *puts on shades*
      accurate reporting. B)

    2. Miyamotos game he chose to delay it herp derp. Iwata knows to trust Miyamoto so if Miyamoto says he needs more time then he gets more time.

  7. we have been… seeing the…. problem with 3ds launch. we see problem… and fix what went wrong in wii u launch. (so iwata what happened to the fixing the launch problems with wii u, it seems like its the same thing over again)…….. please understand.

      1. actually fuck you we print money!!!! (middle finger) eat shit and please understand that im going to lie to you guys again. i apologize…… actually what am i talking about that saying is overused by me….. how about fuck you and deal with it you whiney nintendo fans!!!!!!! im sick and tired of saying please understand…….. how about wait for the few games you will get next year and deal with it!!!!!!

            1. iceazeama, you have leaks in your bucket. You didn’t forget the Seven games I want in 2013. Please undestand that DK TF, Lost Words and 3D Mario will sell Wii Us faster than Bayonetta.

  8. What exactly is he saying specifically got misconstrued by the media? Any public entity has false information circulating about them. It’s been that way forever. That’s how journalism (which is a business) works. This sounds more like a red-herring spin-job to take attention away from CONFIRMED problems Nintendo has right now which he has openly admitted to himself.

    People aren’t upset of misunderstandings about Nintendo, but are upset and frustrated with his mistakes, his compounding them, and lack of learning from them.

    And if he is so concerned about the western-media being confused on his stance on things, maybe he should go sit down somewhere and let his Chief Operating Officer Reggie Fils-Aime **OPERATE** and do all the talking for western-market. I think Fils-Aime has the ability to do more than go on the Jimmy Fallon show all the time.

      1. Circle Pads work for the 3DS, but on the Wii U, they are nothing short of horrendous.

  9. Ok, so, what is he saying? (Sorry, I’m not quite following what happened here)

      1. Translation: Ha! You act like a smart guy all the time, but got confused by this simple article! It’s OK. I forgive you since you’re my translator.

  10. no no no iwata doest understand… its not the media its him who is the problem. inaccurate reporting my ass hes been killing nintendo ever since he took over. i mean he took the rights away from miyamoto and fucking gave them to anouma… a new mario game every fucking two days… and u guyz say CoD is bad.

        1. could hardly even tell what you just said???? he pretty much ruined a great company and now nintendo is just trash from what they were before.

          1. nintndo wasnt g8 b4 eihter. i mean sonik kicked merios ass back in the hey day of nintndo fag boys

  11. When Iwata gets mad which is rare shit goes down. Watch by the Windwaker of the year Iwata will do something that gets everyone to shut the hell up lol.

  12. Will what you expect, bitch as cowardsoft is paying the media to give out false information about Nintendo.

  13. Welcome to the 21st century Iwata. Most of journalism has been going the crapper for a while.

  14. AND NOT ONE SINGLE MEDIA OUT LET REPORTED A SINGLE THING ON NINTENDOS DISRUPTION AND IWATACLEARLY STATING

    WE ARE ENTERING A PERIOD OF “””DISRUPTION””” EVERYONE IGNORED HIM

  16. Fans of Nintendo are welcome on this site. Fanboys of Nintendo (ones that treat Nintendo like gods and don’t realize that Nintendo has flaws) are not.

        1. whats the difference. u say u hate fanboys/girls, but liek fanz… whats the difference

          1. Fans are the ones who respect Nintendo, but realize that they do have flaws. Fanboys are the ones who treat Nintendo like gods, refuse to like other companies, and think Nintendo has no mistakes.

            1. THERES NOTHING TO LIKE ABOUT SONY AND MS

              BROKE ANLOG STICKS SOULESS GAMES LACK OF POLISH NO INNOVATION SHUT UP IDIOTS

            2. look microdick and gaystation are horrid. microdick likes to watch you vigorously beat your meat and post it on porn sites and make moneyz… and isn’t the ps4 like a ripp of the snes?

  17. The mainstream gaming media is bought and paid for by advertising agencies and companies like Microsoft, Apple, and Google. Nintendo doesn’t strike me as a company that would need to pay for articles/good reviews, etc… which probably makes them an even bigger target.

    Take a look at GamesIndustry International, they post more doom and gloom for Ninty than anyone else, lots of stuff about how Nintendo should abandon hardware and just make phone games, etc… Even a recent article about how Ninty would be nuts getting into the smartphone market was just a ruse to say that Ninty should get into the iOS/Android market and abandon hardware.

    Sites like Kotaku are clearly bought and paid for, as are other like Gizmodo, who, IIRC, ran THIRTEEN STRAIGHT PAGES of iPhone coverage back in 2007 when the first one launched. So obviously paid for by Apple, as all an iPhone is, is a Palm Pilot with phone functionality and it’s own store, which already existed beforehand. (HP’s first smartphone came out in 2006, you never heard about till right now though).

    Any website that supports Kinect in any way is bought and paid for by Msoft, as Kinect is the most retarded thing in gaming history, and also a massive privacy concern. Sites like Eurogamer, who also regularly post gloom about Ninty, are one of those. Any site that gave Star Wars Kinect anything over a 1/10 is bought and paid for! lol.

    The only gaming news site I know of that isn’t complete nonsense with bought and paid for “adver-articles” is Rockpapershotgun.com. They only cover PC games, but they are the only honest ones out there.

    Oh, more proof of this bought and paid for stuff? Joystiq run an almost endless stream of articles about Mew-Genics, the idiotic new game from Meat Boy’s creator. Clearly they had a bunch of money thrown at them to do that, as that silly game is barely worth a mention, IMO.

  18. As much as I understand Iwata’s frustration, he should know that they should’ve planned the game releases before Wii U came out. If not for that and the marketing fail, Nintendo won’t be receiving these negative publicity.

  19. No offence Iwata, but It would be easier if we actually SAW what games like Watchdogs running on WiiU look like, and had games like MGSV on there, and your first party games actually making people say “huh…okay then, maybe we were wrong”, but you haven’t.

    Yes, the media is fucking stupid, everyone knows that, but you and the rest of the copany are part of the blame.

  20. Thats what you get by not makin ultra hd system. Ultra hd doesnt exist but it has somethin in common with hd. To get qualified to Ultra hd system you need to make it to appeal 30 year old virgins like Xboxone. Im no life stinky guy hood in my head livin with my parents but i have ultra hd goddamnit. Ultra hd brotherhood is the only important thing in my life. Remember im 30 year old fat virgin. Im gonna eat hamburger now. I stink bad because i shit in my pants.

  21. I think the issue lies with the fact that most people now especially gamers are pretty clued up on specs, hardware etc Nintendo still have not given the specs of the WiiU yet but while Iwata/Nintendo say that the spec doesn’t matter, well yes it does, because all this does is make people question them & guestimate, it also looks like they have something to hide, if the WiiU can come close to the PS4 & X1 graphically then put together a tech demo that runs on a high-end PC & also on the WiiU.

    Nintendo’s problem is that they are to inward looking, ok the first party games mostly look & play well but it’s ok them saying ‘we can get the best out of the system’ but what about everyone else & thats the problem, they are shooting themselves in the foot, if the PS4 & X1 didn’t need 7GB & 5GB RAM for just gaming why would they have it, can Nintendo get a PS4/X1 game running on the WiiU with it’s 1GB of gaming RAM, because if they can lets see it, they give everyone the ammunition & then moan when it gets fired back at them.

  22. This is stupid.
    You can’t correct bad press by giving good press to the customers you ALREADY HAVE. Really, Iwata? That’s what you just said. We have bad press so we connect directly to the customers that already bought our products by doing Nintendo Directs. Are you fuckin blind? The bad press won’t affect the clients you already have becasue they are the die hard fans, you need to focus on the people that doesn’t hve your console and since you did your shitty pseudo E3 presentation that won’t happen.
    Leave the company already, please. We loved you, now go.
