iPad Won't Be A Problem For Nintendo

Nintendo of America boss, Reggie Fils-Aime has said that he does not see Apple’s iPad as posing a problem to them in the market. The iPad has just launched in the US and Fils-Aime had this to say on the matter:
"[Apple] is not having an impact on Nintendo when you look at our business, our volume, our hardware, our software."

"I've seen data that suggests that while consumers are constantly downloading Apps, they play with them for a few times and then they are moving on to the next thing."

"If our games represent a range between snacks of entertainment and full meals depending on the type of game, (Apple's) aren't even a mouthful, in terms of the gaming experience you get."
Seems like Reggie has been raiding his book of puns recently in the last part of those comments. Never say never though Reggie. Look what Sony and Microsoft have been able to do to enter the games market. Certainly, time will tell.
