In the second part of our interview, Shigeru Miyamoto of Nintendo legend speaks of the troubled launch of the Nintendo 3DS and the future of casual gaming market

Read Part 1 of our interview with Miyamoto

race Miyamoto at Nintendo was defined by its hardness. His commitment to perfection creative delayed the launch of the Nintendo 64 for three months to pay his team time to finish the game of his vision.

"A game is delayed nice weather, but a racing game is bad forever," he joked at the time.

More recently he has held with the troubled launch of the Nintendo 3DS. "Especially during the first six months after the system output, sales were lower than those of the DS. This is mainly because we have not had a great first game titles, I think. Also the price point was too high.

"In fairness to us, we realized that reduced the price and worked very hard to have a solid foundation for the Christmas season, which offers 3D Super Mario Land, Mario Kart and Kid Icarus 7 .

"As the situation in Japan today, the console is selling well. We sold 5 million consoles out there, which is respectable for a console in its first year. Challenge now is continue to put effort into making the most popular 3DS. Guide du Louvre is another way to do it. "

ago humility Miyamoto to analyze the fortunes of 3DS to date, however, when asked what could be done differently, your solution is to use old ideas and past successes.

"If I could turn back the clock that would change the alignment for the launch of 3DS and he had more of Mario games is not only that, but also has some excellent features that attract non-gamers. 3D Photo, characteristics of augmented reality and other applications installed. We strive to communicate, but we failed. If I could go back would release these things differently, and spent more time working on this message. "

When asked if any hardware failure to inspire sales could be down to the base point of sale - Stereoscopic 3D - be grotesque, Miyamoto is outraged. "In fact, the 3D is actually the most normal thing because it's like those of us with two eyes often see in the world. Televisions are unusual things in 2D! Stereo does not look like something. Rather it is the usual way to show things. "

The battle for hearts and minds

Obsession selecting "no players", said Miyamoto, defined the recent production of Nintendo, the company's management took after the mainstream success of the Wii console and lite-gaming software that Brain Training from Dr. Kawashima and Wii Fit.

"There are big lines between those who play video games and those who do not. For those who do not, video games are irrelevant. They think all games Video should not be too difficult. We want to eliminate that barrier, "he said at the launch of the Wii. This work continues today.

In fact, one of the most successful features of 3DS is StreetPass, software that detects when another 3DS is in the neighborhood, and adds the avatar of owning their own system , a sort of Human Zoo ("I just learned today that people in France get together to cross the street to another. This type of phenomenon is happening.")

But recently, the new approach has been exacerbated by the appropriation of land from Apple for the hearts and minds of casual gamers. In fact, an immediate plan for the Nintendo 3DS is an examination of the shop, the Japanese competitor to Apple App Store. I wonder if the plan is to create a more open platform to Gamemakers to upload their own games, more or less the same way that Apple has reduced the cost of entry for would-be Gamemakers hoping to publish their titles to iDevices.

"Obviously, it would make development tools more accessible," he says. "Maybe we should look, but one of the tools we offer must be supported. From my perspective, we want to go to smaller studies and work on small projects, while helping them as a means easier and faster for small studies concerned. This is the best way to go. "

Aa Apple

entry for Nintendo's handheld market has caused some problems in the design of your next move in the innovation system portable. "Clearly much of the potential of handheld consoles can now be covered by smartphones," he says. "When you think of a new material that we have to think of things we can add that at present can not do with a smartphone for us, we should have a good reason to launch a new hardware - Something needed .. "

The idea factory

It is this sense that Nintendo is not quite sure what you can offer is the novel - which defined the purpose of the software company in recent years as well. Although Miyamoto is quick to point out that Wii Sports and Wii Fit are the two new game series, is forced to withdraw to the Pikmin for GameCube release in response to the accusation that Nintendo EAD became conservative in recent years in For new games.

When I ask what you think of more exciting games, said: "The key is to surprise people developing games is very easy to use tool to surprise people and offer things for players new and unexpected .. In fact, it can be done quite easily. does not take much to do. There are exceptions, but the games can be created very easily. I love it. "

There are worse ways to spend an afternoon reading the graphics department stores application extrapolation, if you understand the market dynamics applications.

wanted data crunching Reading Google Android store to see what applications make the most money there, and in particular to see what proportion of paid applications for free report.

Y? These are the results of the analysis, based on the Google Map above the UK Listen collection applications, as was the case in the afternoon of April 20 with data from the game site to Google.

Topline Results: 75% of the 100 highest grossing Android applications in the UK - in the Google store, at least - are free to install, and make your money in-app purchases. Note that these figures are based on consumer spending, rather than advertising.

But what is even more clear is the predominance of a particular type of free application in this area, since 68 of the 100 applications are freemium games. In fact, 18 of the 20 biggest grossing Android applications in the UK were free games, animated by the people of Ice Age Gameloft, Zynga Zynga Poker and the small town of TinyCo.

Meanwhile, one of 25 paid applications on the table, were 13 games, which means that the games represent 81% of the first 100 applications profit from the time of my analysis.

return freemium games, you can see some familiar names in world IOS, as Gameloft (free to play four in the Billboard top 100 of the collection), Glu Mobile (September), Storm8 (five ) and TeamLava (five) and Zynga (three, or four if you count newly acquired work something out, it still shows that OMGPOP its editor). Others, like the game and DroidHen Insight, are more important in IOS Android.
