old Miyamoto interview, what does this say?
« on: December 18, 2000, 09:27:26 PM »
In an interview with Famitsu, the leading Japanese gaming publication, Nintendo\'s Shigeru Miyamoto made some startling revelations. "I\'m not interested in the "console wars,\'" said the creator of Mario. "Not to be misunderstood, but if I ever want to make a PlayStation game, there\'s nothing stopping me. As a matter of fact, I have thought before there should be an adaptor thats links the PlayStation to the N64 for an upcoming project. Hopefully, this will be the year everyone will be able to [fully realize the capabilities of] the N64." In an interview which appeared in Dengeki Nintendo N64, another Japanese video-game magazine, Miyamoto had this to say. "For the 64DD I have asked game companies to make all kinds of different games and cut down on [sequal] titles." When asked about the N64\'s weak performance in Japan during 1997, he replied "Well, our concern isn\'t about our system alone, it\'s about the state of video-game industry in Japan as a whole. As it stands right now, it\'s pretty sketchy out there. We barely made it through the year." Miyamoto also hinted that the 64DD may "have something to do with telephones". Hmmm...
Don\'t you wanna grow up to be just like me?

What he is saying is he doesn\'t care what console wins a "war". He developers for what system is best for the design he is going for. If that wasn\'t the Nintendo machine and he thought a PS was, he\'d design for it, if possible.

There was no adapter. It was a rumour. It would never happen either.

The 644 is canceled but it had an online service via RandNet. They discontinued the service and 644 last month, officaly.

Maybe IF...

They would develop a relationship between PS2 and GC..

wake me up.

I highly doubt Miyamoto disagrees the whole console-war so 100 prosently. He has been the "pet" of Nintendo for years and years; I highly doubt he would change the system. He became the mascot of Nintendo ( as a creator of Mario ) long long time ago.

But I couldn\'t know it for sure.
