Nintendo, when Shokio said "Focus on the West." this is not what he meant. Let the East keep their jobs.
I don't think nintendo knows shokio. For many, he doesn't exist.
I guess jokes are hard to detect on the internet.
Never they maybe converting them into China branch soon.

Doesn't Iwata get a pay cut which would prevent this from happening? Either way this doesn't look good ;)
Nintendo's Taiwan Office doesn't even want to be Nintendo's Taiwan Office.
