In an in-depth interview the industry veteran told games™
that he wasn't frustrated by so many people enquiring about the next generation of Nintendo hardware. "I think everyone already understands this point but technology is always evolving and Nintendo, just like other companies, is going to integrate those technologies into our new products as they develop."
Admitting he couldn't be specific, the recently-made BAFTA fellow added that whatever Nintendo's next console is, the company would strive to differentiate from other gaming hardware. "Whether that be Wii HD, Wii 2 or an entirely new console, I am not in a position to say at this point. The only thing I can say is that technology is available to all equally today, and how we decide to make use of that technology and in what format is what will make our hardware unique in comparison to the hardware from other manufacturers. So I think that in the next generation of hardware, the challenge is how unique and different a product Nintendo is able to make."
