What else is new “We are not going to just put our games on bright devices,” said Iwata said. Investors were not impressed with the conference, and Nintendo’s shares dropped 4.
This is just another chapter in the company’s long history, full of highs and lows, just like everybody else. At any rate, Iwata says that Nintendo can’t afford to cut the price of the Wii U anymore, instead turning tocutting his own, Shigeru Miyamoto’s, and Nintendo’s entire Board of Director’s salaries to save a bundle of money.
