Nintendo’s famed designer Shigeru Miyamoto has lashed out at the company’s rivals for what he sees as a slew of me-too products.
What the other companies are doing makes business sense but it’s boring,” the developer told The Telegraph. The same games appear on every system. At Nintendo we want an environment where game creators can collaborate and think of ideas for games that could have never happened before.”
Miyamoto also refused to be drawn on any potential involvement in the blossoming virtual reality sector, stating that: I have nothing to tell you about Nintendo’s involvement in virtual reality. We have nothing to announce yet.”
What he would say of VR, however, was to comment on how he never liked the way players of Nintendo’s famously ill-fated Virtual Boy had to sit hunched over while playing.
Said Miyamoto: It didn’t look beautiful to me which was something of a concern.”
