Nintendo remaining committed to making gaming hardware

The Japanese gaming giant to continue to stick to the spirit of the company motto

Nintendo may be struggling on the home hardware front at the moment but company president and Kirby creator Satoru Iwata has reaffirmed their commitment to being a platform holder.

Iwata-san told investors, “We believe that we can capitalize the most on our strengths through a hardware-software integrated platform business, and therefore this type of dedicated video game platforms will remain our core focus.”

He added, “We will continue to value the spirit of originality described in our motto ‘The True Value of Entertainment Lies in Individuality’ and will continue to provide products and services which pleasantly surprise people.” Nintendo remaining committed to making gaming hardware

There has been a lot of speculation that Nintendo should do what SEGA did after the Dreamcast flopped and become a software-only company licensing out their properties instead of investing the increasingly large amounts of money required of hardware development.

Thanks MCV.
