Whatever your thoughts on Wii, Business 2.0 seems to think its innovator is one of the 50 most influencial persons in business right now. Not Iwata, not Reggie, but the man we sometimes call, Shigditty, or just Shiggy. From the article:
By marketing the Wii aggressively to 25-to 49-year-olds, Miyamoto is breathing new life into a $30 billion industry that was starting to stagnate.
I still can’t decided if Iwata is the father of Wii or Miyamoto. Regardless, low-tech is the new hi-tech for now.
