Nintendo boss says company must give gamers better value for money

Nintendo says it is becoming more difficult to satisfy consumers willing to spend money on full price games.

Well, at least he has good intentions. Now he and his company must deliver.

How about not taking my comment out of context? He says "developers needed to add the final touches that are increasingly demanded by a gaming audience seeking added value for money."

That sounds like good intentions to me. And as I said before, now they need to deliver. If there's something else in my comment you'd like to nitpick, by all means go ahead.

Damn this LOL_WUT dude flip flops on his Nintendo comments.

@ Realplaya
LOL_WUT flipflop?
Nonono, he is almost always anti-Nintendo.

Even the times where I have sort of seen his point, he usually takes the comment too far.

Sometimes he is funny though, sometimes.
I like to think that there is humor in his comments but I think it's only because of Sonic's laughing face.

Right now, I definitely Agree with PopRocks359
LOL_ WUT you took him out of context (if you care).

At least they admit when they are wrong and need to improve...That is the first, and a very important step to fixing things.

I presume the author is trying to work off the title of the DK Nintendo Land game by using the standard meaning of 'crash course.' The article talks of Satoru Iwata trying to inform the investors of the current gaming environment. So, in essence -- 'a short and intense training course in something.'
