Analysis: The Weapons Nintendo Wields

In a wide-ranging interview posted on the Nintendo web site recently, company executives offered investors a rare glimpse into the Japanese gaming giant's business strategy and future plans, discussing everything from Shigeru Miyamoto's recent hobbies to the chances of seeing a DS phone any time soon. But mostly, they talked about Nintendo's strengths in a global videogame marketplace they increasingly define.

IGN pulls out some of the more interesting bits and interprets them. Maybe it's the Japanese-to-English translation, but Nintendo execs sure seem to use the word "weapon" a lot when discussing its business model.

The story is too old to be commented.
