Reggie Fils-Aime Doesn't Know When to Stop Talking

There’s a difference between marketing talk, boosting your company at the expense of your competitors, and saying things that are easily proven wrong. (Reggie Fils-Aime, Wii U)

He feels confident in saying anything because even one extra customer is a bonus.

He was on the news saying this stuff, but i believe you may be overestimating the intelligence of the average news watcher.

Just mentioning it on the news gets extra sales. Boasting the console does not hurt Nintendo at all.

Not knowing when to stop talking should be second nature when selling a product.

"and saying things that are easily proven wrong"

If only that actually mattered. We have this thing in the US called the Presidential Debate. I don't think i need to explain that anymore to US residents, lol.

Title:Reggie Fils-Aime Doesn't Know When to Stop Talking.

Reggie has gone on Tv to say that games look drastically better, but some games play worse.

Author suggests that Reggie needs to learn when to stop. He is working for Nintendo to sell a product. He will not stop even if he knows if he is lying.

Whether he is lying or not does not matter, Reggie knows this, so he is saying whatever he wants because people believe anything.

I should have explained myself better.

Actually, knowing when to shut up can be the difference between making a sale and losing it. Granted shutting up on national television is probably not the place to shut up, but he should have worded it better IMO.

When do ANY PR guys know when to stop talking? How is this at all new?

LOL yeah, I don't even know if Reggie is human. He may be robot... not sure.

Is that not his job?

I wish the games industry would stop being so preoccupied with corporate competition and brand loyalty. Such childish nonsense. When did it stop being about creativity and fun?

Games are heading to shallow blockbuster territory without even having had a single sort of "high" period; like film had German Expressionism, New Wave, Surrealism, Dogme 95.

Shhh...don't tell them that all these companies license technology from one another, and actually co-operate a lot more than they compete. It will ruin the illusion.

i also think he talks too much. but he's just a sales guy he only thinks about sales numbers no matter the lies he puts into it.

He needs to get fired ASAP!

because he knows the stupidities of human beings and he can fool them, and he is perfectly right, just look at those morons here.
