Awesome stuff! Thanks to whoever it was who posted in the link. Good to see this officially translated - would have posted it when the interview was first conduced a little while back but the grammer in the translations, and wording was shite!

Some good points raised! I look forward to parts 2 and 3!

What I find intereesting about this is that by doing these interviews Iwata is giving credit, complete credit, to his developers for the Wii. It doesn't surprise me that he had many employees that actually developed the system, but it is typical for a CEO to act as though he or she is responsible for everything good in his or her company.

This makes Iwata seem surprisingly humble.

Not to be rude or anything, but I think it's a japanese thing... Family, honour... that sort of thingSmilie He's doing a great job thoughSmilie

Furthermore, since Wii is compatible with GameCube software, we have not only tried to create something new, but we have also retained some of the old functionality. Honestly, this was not an easy task.

i bet its 100% BC =D

Sorry, second time I forgot to leave my name

That's part 2 online and another great little read Smilie

This interview is also on Wii.com and features transcripts of part 1 & 2 and is a lot more interesting than watching people take the piss out of lefties and OTHER unfortunate people Jb
