I have and will continue to have a place in my heart for Nintendo. In fact, my first console was a Super Nintendo. The video game market has changed drastically since the early '90s and it seems like what once was platinum is more so along the lines of silver now. Nintendo has always been...

Nintendo's GDC Presentation

Posted on Wednesday, March 2 @ 15:30:54 Eastern by Josh_Laddin




Ninty president Satoru Iwata and NoA president Reggie Fils-Aime spent an hour on stage today for the GDC presentation, and while it was light on announcements, there were a few notable points made.

The only standout announcement software-wise is a brand new 3DS Mario game, which for now is just titled "Super Mario." Important point: the logo features a raccoon tail, although we'll have to wait until E3 for elaboration. Could this be a 3D throwback to SMB3? Other news included a Netflix partnership for the handheld. If they use the potential of the 3DS to its fullest, this may the cheapest way to get 3D movies for the near future.

The rest of the presentation was a lot of pontificating and philosophizing on the roots of gaming and where its headed. Iwata embraced the catch phrase, "content really is king," to describe the attitude toward gaming that he learned from Shigeru Miyamoto. He also sounded a bit hostile toward the mobile gaming market, which is understandable considering how much they're muscling in on Nintendo's longtime stranglehold on handhelds. He took a few shots, saying the industry's "lost craftsmanship," that "the value of videogame software does not matter" to phone manufacturers, and that social gaming might threaten developers' "ability to make a living." Do you think he's just barking at the competition, or are his concerns legitimate?

The whole presentation is available to watch at Nintendo's GDC site.
