Miyamoto speaks on BBC Radio 4

Dubbed by BBC Radio 4’s Front Row as “the Walt Disney of computer game design”, Nintendo’s legendary developer Shigeru Miyamoto was granted five minutes on the latest edition of the arts interest show.

The bulk of the chat was taken up with discussing the increasing convergence between the movie and games industries, with Miyamoto stating: “We tend to use similar technologies, and you might think that we're making something similar.

“The fact is that in the past I've been asked 'why don't you make movies yourself now you've made so many games?’ But I said 'no, no, we're doing completely different things'. And the key difference is the interactivity, which we should cherish.”

The full thing can be listed to on iPlayer, or alternatively Spong has a tidy roundup.
