NoA boss states Microsoft's console is only performing well in UK
Nintendo of America boss Reggie Fils-Aime has stated that aside from the UK, European consumers are not buying Microsoft's Xbox 360 console.
I mean really, microsoft hasn't ever really sad anything too negative about the wii. In fact, Peter Moore has even praised it and asked reggie for one. He adopted the wii60 idea and said that the wii is a very fun and inovative device and that microsoft needs to learn from nintendo. But Reggie won't stop bashing the 360 at every opportunity. This guy needs to learn some humility and play a little nicer... he's beginning to sound like a sony rep.
Nintendo is riding a high horse at this time with the wii. Before the wii there consoles sales well... sucked. Then you have all this free publicity from MS and Sony saying how great the wii is. So now reggie has this swollen head that would rival any disproportioned mii head ever! He just better hope it doesn't get popped anytime soon...
i think he confused the two products....one (360) being a game console and the other (wii) being a piece of sh*t (obviously comes cheap)
Well, crap you people are so to the point...I have nothing to say.
A piece of sh!t and also "two gamecubes stuck together with duct tape" as some wise (crazy?) person pointed out.
I like the Wii but your comment was funny.
Not liking the comments for 3 but you can't blame a man for being an idiot. Moore used the Wii60 thing to stop Sony. He does not even want a Wii nor has one to be purchased (If you read his interview in EGM)
All Reggie is doing is his job of making the Wii sound better than competition. Moore along with other 360 PR's talk chit about all the other consoles and now when a man from Nintendo side says something you all are in an uproar. So what if the 360 only sells in UK it doesn't mean anything. Wii is selling everywhere in the world and isn't slowing down. Anyone would be on a high horse right now
Wait I thought 360 owners loved the Wii "ONLY" because it's beating the PS3 sales.. What happened to the Wii60 relationship...???
There is no such thing as Wii60. Thats something retarded fanboy invented or wish there was such thing. Nintedno and Microsoft are not sharing what they earn, hence they have nothing to do with each other...
Not smart Reggie, not smart. I have never been a big fan of Peter Moore at all, but one thing I do know is that he has made great effort to support your product and concept from day one and beyond. It's a miracle that no one has caught onto what I call, "Nintendo's fleecing of the Gamer", but that's another story. I guess Ninty wants to really go it alone and buck the system with the all powerful wii. For Reggie to come out and blast MS like that was not smart and should show MS that Ninty doesn't care about the 'compliments'. With this divisive attitude and a weaker than water system (comparatively), Ninty could find themselves in a very Sega-like state in the next couple of years if things don't work out with the GC-like wii. Just my take.
O and BTW Reggie is ugly stupid fak!
This could be a sign that Nintendo sees the 360, and not the PS3, as its only real competition in the PAL territories.
Microsoft are strongest in America, but Europe is OK for them. Nothing horrendous like this mooch is pointing out!
the amount of smack Nintendo's been talking up lately.
For shame, Reggie...For shame!
After all I know I am considering it isn't all that great.
I know they need to be very aware of what the other companies are doing, how they are performing, but just keep it to yourself. It just looks petty and insecure.
what a dack. the wii is the dumbest thing ever i was a little mad when it came out cause i liked nintendo. for a company thats suppose to be so serious about gaming and they make something like the wii is retarted. there is a reason it cost as much as the psp, Gamecube, Xbox, Ps2, at launch because its last gen. they just said hey we will make a gamecube up the specs a little and ad my cable remote and there u go new next gen system. WERE ON TOP OF THE WORLD
wii Last Gen whats so revolutionary about the 360 and reggie is right if aint selling it aint selling
...is from their competitor. Yeah right. Like when Sony said 1080p wasn't native for the 360. Nintendo should have taken a lesson from Sony about running your mouth as its just going to come back to get them. Take Sony, the negative consumer reaction to the PS3 is not because the PS3 isn't any good (actually it's a fine machine), it's because it didn't live up to all the absurd claims Sony made. Now Nintendo is talking all kinds of smack about its competitors. This, of course, is going to make them look like jackholes when the newness of the Wii-mote wears off and consumers realize that the Wii is nothing more than a Gamecube with a new peripheral. Sales will stagnate.
Personally, (and I hate to say it because I really liked Nintendo) the biggest rip off this gen is the Wii. Take a control system that was around 10 years ago, package it with a 5 year old system, call it new, and charge $250 for it. Fortunately for Nintendo, early adopters are usually purchasing solely based on hype/newness. Even though Sony is force feeding Bluray to gamers to save itself, at least they added new tech to a new system. If Sony would just shut up for awhile, Nintendo might take over as the most 'evil' console manufacturer.
into Fanboys! Lol. This might get more entertaining than reading these boards.
The 360 has sold like 3 million in europe. I dont know why you all take it to heart tho you sad sad SAD people. It doesnt affect you. Its not as if somone as sad as you will run up to you and say ha ha we are winning by a million in sales numbers.
no non-english translation waiting so we get the games fast oplus with fable, pgr, gta ect coming from uk we dont have to release to the rest of europe.
germany has already removed themselves from most games due to ratings so if we can dump the rest of europe the english and usa can get on with gaming fast.
Yeah presidents are talking mad junk...
Whats the deal with Germany anyways with these ratings?
Xbox 360 doing well..It's always the new kid on the block that gets Picked on and bullied.
Nintendo= On 5th generation console
Playstation = On 3rd generation Console
Microsoft = On 2nd generation console
Every successor to the 1st Generation consoles did Well.
Super Nintendo - one of the best all times.(with Competition)
PS2 - Still going strong(not much competition)
Xbox360 - Is holding it's own against the real competition(Sony)(With fierce Competition)
I respect Nintendo and Always will..but please!!!, get with the TIMES and the HARDWARE and [email protected]
need not worry about the 360, he needs to constraint more on the fact that the Wii'k has no games( other than Zelda ) worth playing!
im one of the answer to Reggie's comment.
I sold Xbox 360 after just 2 months. Why? it is crap.
I dont criticize Wii. Wii seems good for Europe.
Here comes PS3, it is on course to be the best selling console in Europe.
well the 360 thinks your crap, pal! :b
