Next Generation has a short summry
of a longer Business Week interview
Shigeru Miyamoto where he talks about game design, the Revolution, and
a few other topics. The big quote for me was this:
Most people think videogames are all about a child staring at a TV with
a joystick in his hands. I don't. They should belong to the entire
family. I want families to play video games together. That was the
concept behind the Revolution"
I think this sums up why the Revolution is so important to the industry
and how the industry is going to grow up in the coming years. By
growing up I mean not only maturing but reaching out to an older
audience that normally doesn't play games. There's no way I could
ever convince my parents to pick up an Xbox controller but I think I
could probably talk them into trying out the Revolution controller.
