Nintendo’s Reggie Fils-Aime Talks Amiibo and the ‘Skylanders’ Deal

To find out how the deal went down and to get more details about Nintendo’s amiibo strategy, the WSJ talked with Reggie Fils-Aime, president of Nintendo of America:

-WSJ: Sony’s and Microsoft’s consoles have far outsold the Wii U. What’s your strategy to come out ahead?

-Fils-Aime: From a Nintendo perspective, we clearly have strength here in the Americas, we have strength in Europe and we have strength in Japan. That isn’t necessarily true of some of our more direct competitors.
We’ve also said publicly that we are already hard at work on our next home console and that’s another element we’ll be talking about much later.

Reggie is actually a creative marketing manager. He is the real deal. I think the guy might even be above average in the sales department. He got people to accept cheaply made products for extremely high prices and not only accept the situation but to defend him in a way to make sure their favorite sales manager gets rich, and on top of all of this, he kept the pop-culture train rolling. The dude is a true hustler.

because the majority of people who buy nintendo products know Reggie....you're one of the most pathetic fanboys I've seen in a good while. Always ready to shit on everything non-Sony and when sony controller ports fuck up at EVO no one is allowed to report on it...just sad.

Bruh, all that was a compliment to Reggie.

anast337d ago

I'm all good. It looks like you got somethings to work on.

@Atarax

It's a compliment. I highlighted all the stuff he excelled at, which is more than most execs in gaming.

You know that I wasn't talking about your compliments about Reggie. I don't get how you don't get tired of constantly shitting on other platforms, shills like you is honestly why I don't visit this site anymore.

I'll just leave that here. My advice still stands.
