Nintendo Syndrome and Miyamoto

Next-Gen has a nice editorial piece on Nintendo and just how much of an effect Sir Miyamoto has had on the company’s success. From the article: “As it is now, Nintendo is in many ways a microcosm of the game industry. When Nintendo has something to say, it changes everything. When Nintendo gets its head up its butt, so does the industry as a whole. The best solution I can offer: don’t put your faith in Nintendo, or in anyone else; just enjoy them. Listen to what they have to say, then go off and do whatever seems practical. Miyamoto is just one man. And in the battle for mindspace, he had has always neeeded some competition.”
