VG247: Nintendo Europe's senior marketing director, Laurent Fischer, has issued a statement to videogaming247 saying he regrets saying that only "geeks and otaku" care about the issue of Wii storage, and never meant to cause offence.
I used to hate otakus i didnt care about otaku. But now i kinda do becuase i think am begining to like anime. Before i hated it. I still hate it a lot cuz its not anmerican i never watched anime in my life before11111 But my friend sent me sum crap but i told him i didnt like it even though i did, but i only watched episode 1
Well I hate you because you are American. Pretty stupid attitude huh?
Well i meanty to say its not english the Anime my friend sent me i think is called Naruto. I forgot but it was in japanese and had english subtitles So even though it wa sAMAAAAAAAAZING. What runied it for me was that it was japanese and not english
You can catch Naruto on Cartoon network. But once you watch the English dub you will appreciate the fact that your friend bothered to send you the sub. It is horrible along with most English dubs of anime. Subs are tough at first but if you watch enough it becomes second nature reading as you watch. Subs also provide the most accurate translation of what the creators wanted to express. Dubs are more concerned with using words that matching the mouth movements of the characters and are willing to sacrifice accuracy to do so.
Don't know why that should be that big a factor. When i watch Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children, i actually watch it with Japanese voices and english subs. The Japanese voice actors are just a hell of alot better. But i can see you're point if you hate reading subs
What I hate are Croatians... Kick us out da qualifying for european cup they did. Anyway On Topic: He only regrets his boss slappin him across the face, for what he said lolz
@fork.... i hope you can run fast because english naruto dubbing SUCKS BALLZZZ
XD i lold so hard that i woke up the whole house XD
So now it's a misunderstanding... how can that be taken in a good way? Anyway good for him to man up and say sorry.
In japan anyone who isn't Otaku and claims someone is otaku is being offensive. He needs to be silenced, for sure.
in the history of the industry. Sure MS pushes DLC like crazy then puts up a barrier by charging ridiculous prices for its harddrive upgrade but this has to take the cake. Actually insulting people who want to buy more DLC from your company.
Yeah, he's a dummy.
Oh yes, of course! Clearly he meant "geeks" in the most sincere, non-hurtful way possible. What an upstanding citizen! All is forgiven!
"never meant to cause offence" But you did!
Anyway, this guy is a douche. Nintendo needs to really start thinking more about an actual factual game and not just another anthology of mini games.
If he was really sorry he would have apologized sooner.
Like i said in my previous post, he will apologize...like they always do....but i guess the damn PR people are behind it
Of course he's regretful. I'm surprised he didn't get fired. The funny thing is most of the people he offended are proud to be called geeks or otaku. It was just a matter of him making what he said sound so degrading. The fact is, right now Nintendo can paint a turd white, slap a Wii logo on it and it will sell 10 million the first week, and most of those sales will not come from geeks or otaku. They will come from soccer moms, and other mainstreamers who believe Nintendo is wholesome for their family. What a racket!
I'm also surprised he didn't get fired. That's ABSOLUTELY goddamn ridiculous.
proof that Nintendo are sellout [email protected] now.
His name was dodgy, his attitude was dodgy and he insults his most loyal fans....this feels very forced. I don't except his apologies. Oh and If I where to be called a geek I would probably take it as a compliment.
one could even say his name was... Fischy? o_0
