        1. … I’m actually surprised that you’re reacting this way. If anything, I would be thinking that you’d be very pleased, since they would have insider information about Xbox so that you have a better idea of what the weaknesses are (as well as what you would need to prepare for in terms of their offence).

          Or even a prisoner of war.

          But eh. I won’t meddle with the plans. :/

          1. Nintendo First Order Commander Quadraxis

            ||Once the Pokemon Regime starts adopting the same mechanics as that flawed system Xbox Live, you’ll know why…||

            1. I’m even more surprised now. I thought you’d be happy about the “prisoner of war” thing, but I guess that made you more angry than otherwise. I apologize for that.

              :/

              1. Nintendo First Order Commander Quadraxis

                ||What is anger?…||

                ||The Ing do not take prisoners, either we consume or destroy, Xbots are of no worth…||

      1. Nintendo First Order Commander Quadraxis

        ||Xbots are not acceptable, but if High Command decides them to be useful as slaves then that renains to be seen, I haven’t received orders yet…||

      2. He was this way with the Bowser dude from EA joining Nintendo, too. He’ll get over it eventually. Right now, he’s in “This is a conspiracy as he’s just a spy!” mode.

  1. First… a former rep of EA becoming Nintendo’s Executive VP of Sales & Marketing. And now, an Xbox LIVE architect joining The Pokemon Company. What’s next… PS4 architect Mark Cerny joining Nintendo in making the Nintendo PlayStation II?

  2. Damn. It’s not Phil Spencer taking Reggie’s place as NoA’s CEO but I guess this is a start. Least GameFreak could use this guy to give us better online features on main Pokemon games.

  3. JUst Imagine if Reggie was replaced with a person who wanted games that were japan only released worldwide, Or better they finally remove the damn region lock

    how amazing would that be ?
