Shigeru Miyamoto, the creator of Mario,Donkey Kong, Zelda, Star Fox, F-Zero or Pikmin, returned to theannouncement of the new Nintendo console.He said it will not be muchmore powerful than any other mixer on the market, just a matter ofcost. Nintendo is seeking a balance between technological innovationand an affordable price to everyone.
Miyamoto explains: We are very pricesensitive, because people generally have a defined budget to spend onentertainment. And the situation is different for parents who buysomething for their children over a certain price, they buy more.

Nintendo already working on sucha device before the release of the Apple tablet.

Miyamotoalso no secret that this has greatly helped the development team topresent its project and promote the value of the thing.
