I gave you positive feedback for that.

Anyway... This guy WON'T be missed. He praised the "FUN MACHINE" a.k.a. Gamecube for having a stupid mini-DVD which crippled the machine from the start. Seriously, making the stupid machine a little bigger, and slicker, and DVD capable wouldn't have costed Nintendo an extra dime (hardware wise), and they would have had a lot more "mature" games, and would have earned more support of 3rd party developers and consumers. Seriously, what a stupid move.

I find it funnier that this guy has been criticizing Sony as of late. But of course, after a 10 year beating by your worst enemy, having a good run for the last few months probably made him want to say "IN YO FACE YO!".

Too bad it won't last.

I doubt Perrin Kaplan will be missed once she gets her ass out of Nintendo. Same for Peter Moore getting out of Microsoft. All these people did was badmouth their competition, sourgrapes from the PS1 and PS2 era. They never did a good job... Reggie? Maybe. But he's probably gonna be with Nintendo for a long time.
