Jaffe attacks Nintendo for insulting loyal fanbase

Gameindustry.biz Reports: God of War designer David Jaffe has launched an attack on Nintendo following the company's marketing director stating only "geeks and otaku" want more storage for the Wii.

Writing on his personal blog, Jaffe accuses Nintendo of snubbing its loyal fanbase for mainstream success, and says Laurent Fischer – who he incorrectly refers to as female – should be ashamed of his comments.

ahhaha, this guy is actually talking about Junior high school vocabulary and mentality? This guy? I say no more and rest my case. Dave, get back to work. Sony wants to hurry up and buy out your company like they do all independent dev's anymore.

"Geeks and Otaku" (Otaku is not a friendly term in Japanese) want more storage. It seems to me that more people that love the Wii and it's virtual console want more storage than a mere 512MB. A great many people have complained about the Wii's lack of internal memory. A memory solution could be present in the form of external SD cards, but Nintendo firmware doesn't support that function. It seems to me that Nintendo is being it's old self and denying the general public what it wants and refuses to take action to meet demand. Just a simple observation, maybe I'm wrong. Jaffe's statement is quite critical, but who knows.

It's a derogatory term meaning nerd / geek etc..
Otaku is only looked at positively in the west.

Well it means more along the lines of fanatical fanboy as far as I remember, but thanks for pointing that out for people here. :)

Wow Nintendo hasn't even reached domination like how Sony did with PS1 and PS2 and they're already mouthing off huh?

They only single-handedly saved the gaming industry from collapse with the NES. And SNES wasn't too shabby, either. But that doesn't mean anything, right? I'm sure some of you weren't even born then. And with Wii outselling PS3 and 360, they have a little room to talk.

Lest we forget the comments Sony and Microsoft have made?

And no, I'm not a Nintendo fanboy.
