Why Nintendo Handhelds are Superior

Business Week interviewed Kazuo Yoneyama, one of the Nintendo engineers who worked on the design of DS Lite on how to improve portables. Regarding handheld durability, Yoneyama had this to say: “For a portable console, you can’t afford to neglect durability. Rather than having our users pay several thousand yen to fix the console if they drop it, we’d rather that they be able to spend that money on buying games instead. “

Someone buy that man a drink!

Also, (in case you missed it), the New Super Mario Bros. release date is BACK to May!
