We're always working on new things, and you'll continue to hear lots from us that we believe will be game-changing.

It's clear that if you innovate, you create new gaming experiences. I know from having worked with Iwata-san and Miyamoto-san that innovation is what drives them.

But for many people that's the first step on the gaming ladder. People will want to graduate from a basic entry point into a console that will deliver a more rounded gaming experience.”
