Well, that's not exaaactly what he said. More like he will be retiring soon, but he could 'make games until I die'. I'd categorize this as a misquote.

Miyamoto Plans on Making Games Until He Dies,But every gamer asks, what about when he's hospitalized,So now we think this article is a misquote,And now we have to report it and add a bad vote

On-Topic: lool anyway yea this is a misquote, they did really interpret it wrong.

"what about when he's hospitalized"

Nintendo can afford to shut down a section of the hospital and continue development.

Being that he is in his kingdom = does what he LOVES, retiring will only make things worse for him, so in reality Miyamoto will never RETIRE < fact

”I’m at an age where as I look around at people who work in different companies and they’re all reaching an age where they’re thinking about retirement, I guess people might expect me to be thinking of retiring.”

“But at the same time, I look at the work that I’m doing, and the fun that I’m having – this is something that I can still continue to do for a long time. You know, possibly until I die.”

Kojima said so the same.

idk why but while reading this article something shouted in my head "the king is dead, hail to the king", i respect the games Miyamoto created and partaked in, even with creating 3DS and WiiU but I think that Nintendo needs new blood to thrive.

One of Nintendo's many problems is that of not being able to break the barrier of rehashing the same old games. So, I don't see how this would benefit Nintendo.

Like the comment above mine said, "Nintendo needs new blood to thrive". ;)

Miyamoto is the definition of loyalty.

especially in this day and age where people consider sticking with a company for 1 console generation = loyal.

I know that no matter what Nintendo will be in good hands.

He should start making some games for the Wii U then, cause at the moment it has none.

This should be good! lol

I wish he would make a bunch of new characters and have them stock piled for when he does retire/die.....that way Nintendo has new things to use in the future even when he's gone. He really is the Walt Disney of gaming !
