Since someone said there should be a thread about this interview - here you go.

Reggie talked about the WiiU including some stuff about the competition and how it's different to the Wii.

Wouldn't have expected some of the questions from CNN.

When brainless dummies aren't going to bother doing any research or fact check his ass then you can get away with blatantly lying like that. It's also why republicans are still so popular in this country.

I'm sure that's just the line he was fed by the marketing department. It's not like he would actually play CoD on any system to be able to tell the difference.

I thought COD looking better on the Wii U versus the ps3 was true.

I'm sure he must have actually seen the content. Whether he believes some aspect or another looks improved enough for him to lie, or whether he is just flatout lying, I don't know.

You don't get to a position as high up as his by actually being stupid, only by manipulating stupid people. Of course he doesn't believe it because it's factually incorrect. He's not oblivious to what literally every single industry and media person is saying.

It looks identical to 360's version and runs worse (average of 8fps less) in single player.

So yeah Reggie running for president of America in 2016. Believe is his slogan.

The biggest mistake people make is to think that PR people aren't acted personas.

I started disliking Reggie at a long ago E3 when he was making the case for why Gamecube has great third party support in its last year, and mentioned the same game twice in a short list.

He's clearly lying. Yes, I believe Sonic Racing looks better, but that's about it.

A buddy of mine was over last night who mainly plays the 360 version; he said the Wii version looked smoother and he didn't see screen tearing like he did on the 360.

Yeah his job, especially for a company that needs casuals so much like Nintendo, is to say and do whatever is necessary to get as many sales as possible. And we all know casuals have shit for brains when it comes to gaming. I guarantee you the ones who saw that interview believed him. Just like they believe COD is a HD game.
