Iwata: 'I Laughed at the PlayStation 3 Controller

"Actually before they made the announcement we already anticipated that they might do that, so I had to laugh. Even though I was laughing, it was with a grim face, I should add," Iwata told the Seattle Times. "Having said that, please know that putting the motion-sensor technology into the classic-style controller is one thing. Putting the motion-sensor technology into the Wii remote as well as the 'nunchuck' controller, where you can use both hands freely and independently, this is quite another thing." -- Satoru Iwata
