Why did IWATA seem so apologetic during Nintendo Direct?

He looked kind of stiff too. NEVER APOLOGIZE.


NOT EVEN THE FACE OF ARMAGEDDON.

Because the Wii U is selling below expectations.

Iwata knows a lot of ppl r dissapointed by the Wii U because they have no patients and expect all the AAA Nintendo titles instantly. They dont realize quality takes TIME and PLANNING and jsut want to b**** at the best gaming company in the world. Iwata knows this but choses to be humble and "apologize" when the complainers are the 1s that should be sorry for all there s***

Heck, its being bought by mostly 360 and ps3 owners.

I want to know why Iwata is as stiff as a corpse when doing Nintendo Directs.

Except they did had time. If you look at the first party developers game timeline you see a couple had time to release a game for the Wii U.

Because he WAS apologizing for the lack of software for their brand new console. That was the only appropriate response for the WiiU at the moment.

First of all, Nintendo fans are not all doctors, in fact most aren't. They do not have patients for a reason...I think you meant patience, but whatever. Now the reason why certain people "b****" I believe is due to a quote the majority of nintendo fans always used to say. "PS3 and Xbox 360 suck...a whole bunch man...you know they have no games. That is why Nintedo is the greatest thing since Jesus ya know." So now that they have a system that they bought at launch with no games, instead of waiting for games to come out and get the wii u for what it is worth (I would say $200). So what do you get? Backlash from people who can not just blindly love a console due to such asinine things as brand loyalty.
