"We need to eat in order to live -- that's our first priority , but entertainment and the enrichment of our souls must come in second place, said a very defiant Shigeru Miyamoto on the UK's Channel 4 News last week".
He was being asked about how the credit crunch affects the gaming industry.

He knows Nintendo is safe. But what about the rest of the industry, Mr. Miyamoto? One of your competitors could end up as roadkill under your van of fun and entertainment as it careens down the financial highway with people gathering around the roads, their hands in the air with fistfuls of dollars, screaming "I want to get fit!"
