Last month, Nintendo president Satoru Iwata sat down with Asahai Shimbun to discuss, among other things, the DS successor. It appears that the interviewer misinterpreted Iwata’s statement about needing high-resolution graphics and motion sensors, as Nintendo accurately pointed out.
Iwata says the reporter made an error, effectively putting words in his mouth. Andriasang reports that the interviewer asked “The next DS will need to have high resolution graphics and include a motion sensor, wouldn’t you say?” Iwata responded, “Those are naturally considered requirements. However, do you believe it will sell with just this?”
The published interview obviously missed that last bit, changing the meaning of Iwata’s statement drastically.
Iwata also clarified his thoughts on a HD Wii.
