Nintendo doesn’t want to put their games on PC
A lot of games have moved over to PC. Ports, while not perfect, are getting a lot more attention. However, Nintendo isn’t interested in jumping on that bandwagon.
In a recent shareholders Q&A, Nintendo said they have no interest in their games joining the PCMR.
“We are aware that many consumers play PC games. However, we believe that the integrated
hardware-software business is the best way for us to provide the surprises and new gameplay
experiences that we want to achieve, ” President Tatsumi Kimishima said. “On the other hand, we offered three applications for smart devices during the previous fiscal year, and, though the content and consumers playing the applications were different, each one was received extremely favorably.”
Managing Executive Officer Shinya Takahashi said that E3 proved that their solution is working on its own.
“Starting this year, E3 was officially opened to the public, not just to those involved in the industry,
and the line was particularly long for our booth. On the first day there were so many people that you
literally could not even see the floor. The competitions also got very heated and both the
competitors on the stage and the audience in the hall were shouting in unison with excitement. I
think that it ended up being a very good show. “
