Nintendo of America’s executive president of sales and marketing, Cammie Dunaway, has announced that she will be leaving her position, effective October 1st.  Since joining the company in November of 2007, she’s been a famous (or infamous, depending on who you talk to) face in the company.  Dunaway is accepting a position outside of the video game industry, which as of yet remains undisclosed.

Reggie Fils-Aime, the president and chief operating officer of Nintendo of America had the following to say:

“We appreciate Cammie’s contributions to Nintendo and the role she played in bringing the Wii and Nintendo DS experiences to millions of people. Her team and the rest of Nintendo of America remain focused on our goal of maintaining the incredible momentum Nintendo enjoys heading into the busy holiday season.”

Dunaway’s own words upon leaving:

“I’m thankful for my time with Nintendo and proud of our team’s accomplishments in growing the Nintendo audience. I look forward to watching the continued growth of the Nintendo brand in the years ahead.”

    Yay no more talks about stupid vacations during E3. 8D

    Her E3 presentations were terrible. She always seemed to me like a principal trying to be cool in front of her students. I never got the impression that she actually owned a game console that she played herself, rather than one she just got for her kids. Maybe I'm wrong, that's just the feeling she gave me. Either way, I hope she at least left on her own terms. Getting fired would suck.

    • Ezlo

      I agree with this comment. That's the exact same impression I got.

  • its easy

    Good riddance. Give me her job. In fact, give me all the jobs at Nintendo. Ill fix the entire company in one year. First order of business: no more shovelware. Second: all copies of Metroid Other M recalled and burned for being a disgrace. Third: begin work on on Luigi's Mansion 2 utilizing the wii motion plus. Fourth: create a Wii version of WindWaker that has the 10 extra dungeons added on that were originally planned and had to be scrapped because of time constraints. Fifth: design a Wii to the exact same grey/bacl/red color scheme as the original NES, including the wiimote, to be called the "NES Wii".

    If anyone needs me ill be in my office.

      Wow, your awesome…

      ¬_¬

      So not only have you just outed yourself as greater than the man himself Miyamoto, but him and every other person that works for Nintendo combined aren't a patch on you? I admire your arrogance, even I'm not quite that arrogant.

      Half of your comment was complete and utter crap and the other half was either agreeable or very opinionated. Luigi's Mansion 2? I mean, why? It was a great game but a second is too much vacuuming fun for most people. And shovelware? Name one Nintendo made title that is shovelware, I challenge you to do so. I haven't yet played Other M so I'm not gonna comment on that. And Wii play Windwaker would be cool expecially with extra duingeons, but I'd prefer them too spend the time on Skyward Sword. And lets face it 'NES Wii' is a terrible name.

      And my last point, Fix Nintendo? Are you kidding me? There two consoles hold the title for 'Fastest selling console of all time' and 'Best selling console of all time', not too mention the likes of Mario still after 25 years loved, The Legend of Zelda series is collectively the highest scored game (Review wise) Ever. And you one adult/child or something in the middle can fix that?

      Then I sugest you open your own company, and just take over the world with you awesome.

        Oh, these are the kind of posts that make my day.

        What an awesome thing to wake up to on your Birthday.
        Let's just hope they get a new spokesperson who looks as if they know what they're talking about.

  • Christian

    I doubt she even played any games.

  • Ashmic

    i know she was kinda bad at her job but come on guys, its still her job, did it say whether or not shes leaving voluntarily or fired or, even so, its someones job, have some respect

  • I think she did more good than bad for Nintendo. Though she may have presented things in a bad way at E3, she still drove herself to the top where she could infuence the "big N" positively. So, I agree with Ashmic: she does deserve respect in keeping Nintendo going. I doubt she did get fired, or demoted to a lower station. Either way, at least she can still maintain the momentum, if not from this new position.

    • LuX

      I agree, to say she was bad at her job is stupid. I mean she was president of marketing and sales and correct me if I'm wrong but Nintendo are selling their products in the bucket loads.

  • ChainofTermina

    Her whole "smile" thing at E3 made me vomit uncontrollably. Good riddance. Hopefully the person that replaces her will actually have some sense about what people want to see in video games.

  • Matt

    Ok imma have to relook at this when home since I’m on my phone but from what I can tell there is a idiot commenting on a zelda forum saying nintendo sucks (thus implying zelda sucks). To this person are you an idiot??? … Cod is over played. Most idiots with half a brain can just point and shoot a gun but hell with zelda you have puzzles and a damn good story almost every time. Yes I play cod and zelda and i can honestly say cod sucks 99 % of the time. -_- as to the woman quiting I never heard of her honestly so yeah that is all I’m sayin till I’m on a computer and can fully rant. -_- have a nice day

  • LoZymugglegater
