Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the last couple months, you should know about the economic crisis facing the world. Most of this can be attributed to the US and the sub-prime mortgage crisis. Most of you under 18, though, could probably care less. Although, if the economy tanks, how does Nintendo create games? Or what if they create them, but then have to sell them for extremely high prices just to turn a small profit?
What would you do if your family couldn’t afford games anymore? Would you cry? Would you even care? Of course you would. Why come to a Zelda site and not care about gaming even a little? Well there is a bit of good news. Hit the jump to find out why.
Miyamoto was interviewed on Channel 4, he explains on how Gaming can survive this economic crisis.
“We need to eat in order to live – that’s our first priority,” Miyamoto said. “But entertainment and the enrichment of our souls must come in second place … Nintendo’s mission is to take advantage of improving cheaper technology to create reasonable and affordable entertainment. It’s very good value.”
It looks like he thinks that games and entertainment come second to the basic needs of life. In the meantime, Nintendo’s stock (NTDOY) has fallen $0.35 down to $38.95 per share, down from over $50/share last week. I wonder how all of you feel?
