Wii U price drop

This is getting ridiculous, do they not have any morals? Are they trying to get anticonsumer company of the decade?

If I support the game company, then I won't be supporting the blank DVD business.

Like every time they promise and then apologize for a software drought (gamecube, wii, 3ds and wii u all apply)?

Oh well, we'll see how the holiday goes. I'm ready for the games!

What kind of question is this?
When he is making a PR statement, of course he is. Its a pretty large part of his job.

I don't think Miyamoto's paystubs say "PR Guy", sorry.

This is what PR people do. Nothing new here.

If you accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior and aren't ashamed to show it, put this as your signature.

You should pretty much always take these kinds of things less as a, "Isn't going to happen," and more as a "No announcement to make on it right now." This applies for every company.

Pretty much, every damn company does this each generation.
