Very interesting tidbit in the latest edition of EGM Magazine. It seems that Kutaragisan is NOT on Sakaguchi's friends list. Could be one of the reason why Sakaguchi supported Microsoft and their endeavors in Japan (speculation). Interesting quotes about Wii and Microsoft's Japan strategy ...
As for supporting Nintendo's Wii, Sakaguchi said, "The system is intriguing, but right now, I have no plans on making a game for the Wii."
But Sakaguchi isn't exactly smitten with Microsoft, either: "Microsoft has to change its marketing strategy in Japan. There are a lot of excellent games on the 360, far better games than what's on the Wii or PS3. But not a lot of people in Japan have a clear idea what games like Gears of War are all about. Just look at the Windows Vista commercial -- it's terrible."
No link to full interview ... sorry ... only in the latest EGM issue
