Reggie talks industry expansion in Montreal

I like Nintendo President Reggie File-Aimes. He reminds me of a wealthier, more popular version of myself. And we’ve both killed things with our bare hands, so there’s that too.

Today, at the Montreal International Game Summit, Reggie — ironically enough after yesterday’s posts — talked about the narrow path the game industry now walks, and how he’d like to see it expanded. “Everyone loves a game, so why isn’t everyone playing videogames?” he asked.

Great question Reggie. It’s one, given the recent events at Infendo (which are apparently spreading across the various tubes of the Internets as well), that I now ask Infendo readers.

If everyone appreciates a good game now and then, why isn’t eveyone playing video games?
