In a world dominated by violent media, Americans are no more eager to go to war than they were in the 1980s or the 1960s or the 1940s. Hasn't it always been someone else's problem? The overwhelming majority would rather go on thinking it had nothing to do with them and there...

Nintendo: Petitioning From Fans “Doesn’t Affect What We Do"

Posted on Thursday, December 5 @ 06:17:09 Eastern by Alex_Osborn


Nintendo of America's Reggie Fils-Aime has spoken out to say that petitions and campaigns from gamers don't have an impact on what Nintendo decides to do.

"I have to tell you - it doesn't affect what we do," he told Siliconera. "We certainly look at it, and we're certainly aware of it, but it doesn't necessarily affect what we do."

Naturally, the topic of Operation Rainfall came up, which fought to get Xenoblade ChroniclesThe Last Story, and Pandora's Tower released in North America. Here's what Fils-Aime had to say about that particular campaign: 

I wanted to bring Xenoblade here. The deal was, how much of a localization effort is it? How many units are we going to sell, are we going to make money? We were literally having this debate while Operation Rainfall was happening, and we were aware that there was interest for the game, but we had to make sure that it was a strong financial proposition.

I'm paid to make sure that we're driving the business forward - so we're aware of what's happening, but in the end we've got to do what's best for the company. The thing we know [about petitions] is that 100,000 signatures doesn't mean 100,000 sales.

True or not, Reggie's comments likely won't sit all too well with fans. Telling you most hardcore followers that their outcries have little to no impact on what you decide to do isn't the best way to strengthen their love for Nintendo.
