Apple more of a threat than Microsoft says Nintendo

Forget Kinect, it's the iPhone that's the problem

Nintendo of America boss Reggie Fils-Aime has been responding to the Apple question again.

Fil-Aime told Forbes Magazine that Apple's iPod and iPad have the biggest potential to eat into Nintendo's business.

He said: "Do I think that in the near term they can hurt us more than Microsoft? Absolutely."

This would seem to mean that despite the popularity of Kinect on pre-order isn't enough for Nintendo to see Microsoft as a serious threat to the Wii's crown.
