up until this point i haven't really been worried about N, but the comments being made by N really make me wonder if they are taking the company in the wrong direction. Obviously i don't know what they have planned, but i just don't see how all the focus on "quality of life" is going to result in a great console. I just don't get it...
"As the business environment around us has shifted with the times, we have decided to redefine entertainment as something that improves people's quality of life ('QOL') in enjoyable ways and expand our business areas," he writes. "What Nintendo will try to achieve in the next 10 years is a platform business that improves people's QOL in enjoyable ways.
"We believe that we can capitalize the most on our strengths through a hardware-software integrated platform business, and therefore this type of dedicated video game platforms will remain our core focus.
"With a platform business that improves people's QOL in enjoyable ways, we will attempt to establish a new business area apart from our dedicated video game business. We have set 'health' as the theme for our first step and we will try to use our strength as an entertainment company to create unique approaches that expand this business."
