Nintendo CEO Satoru Iwata made $2.1 million last year (included bonuses), much less than Sony CEO Howard Stringer’s $9 mil or Square Enix’s $2.7 million-making CEO.
That may come as a surprise to some, since Nintendo outsells the other two combined. But keep in mind we’re talking salaries here. And in senior executive land, salary is often peanuts when compared to year-end bonuses and/or any ownership draws.
As long as he’s happy.
