E3 2008: Miyamoto: 'E3 is No Longer for Showing Core Games'

Love or hate him, Shigeru Miyamoto does know how to talk to people. After having one of the most disappointing E3 conferences in their history, Nintendo is still coming out with strong punches and sticks with their decision to reveal casual titles during their conference. Did Nintendo lose their minds temporarily? No, they made this decision based on the E3 media and he reassures us that hardcore games are in development. During an interview with MSNBC, Shigeru Miyamoto talked about Nintendo's E3 conference, casual titles, and why Nintendo revealed what they did. Checkout a small excerpt from the interview below: I think that there's probably one other element to it, and that's that our view of how we use E3 has changed. For a very long time, E3 was an event where — and certainly Nintendo included — catered specifically to the core gamer. Now we look at more … an opportunity for us to introduce new concepts and new types of play that we intend to bring to the broader audience, particularly because of the media that gathers at E3 now. So while attending an E3 event like this, they might be given the impression that Nintendo is no longer focusing on the games that appeal to the core gamer, in fact we're still working on many of those titles, but it's just not the type of event where we'll be showcasing that anymore. Be sure to checkout the full interview at the link below. Read More
