Miyamoto reassures graphic whores that Nintendo will embrace HD in near future

In case there was ever any doubt, says Miyamoto: “I don’t think there’s anything wrong with pretty graphics, and if I’m a consumer that has an HDTV, I’d want to be able to play my games with nice graphics too,” he told Industry Gamers on Friday. “And I think as we’ve seen the penetration rates for HDTV increase, we’re going to see video games and Nintendo’s games move along in step with the progression of technology.”

So once the majority of consumers own HDTVs, Nintendo will support high resolution graphics. But never more than gameplay, added Miyamoto. “What I don’t think is necessarily true is that the graphics itself is something that’s going to make the gameplay experience better. So we’re still going to focus on the gameplay, but we’ll take advantage of the technology as it comes out.”
