Iwata comments on Sony NGP
Posted: 29.01.2011 06:57 by Comments: 8
Satoru Iwata, NIntendo CEO, reacted to questions on Sony’s new handheld console, the NGP. His response was diplomatic, stating, "They’re trying to appeal to customers from a different direction than us. The customers will decide which is correct."

He then cagily replied when asked how Nintendo would "combat" the NGP, "Nintendo is not the kind of company that thinks about how we oppose other company’s product."

Iwata stated Nintendo would never develop third-party software for other platforms, as Microsoft did with the DS, saying, "So long as I am CEO, it definitely will not happen."

It seems the general mood that Iwata had was an utter lack of fear of Sony's handheld.

Just one game does not make the console, it will help but it won't be alone the reason for the NGP downfall.

The DS and the new PSP are a whole different category now. Playing shooters with two analog sticks or a mario game with a stylus? The only thing they have in common is that they are portable. A Vespa and a Bugatti Veyron are both vehicles, but a whole different type of animal.

Here's why the 3DS will whomp the NGP:

1. $250 vs. $300-350
2. 3D
