Reggie loves blaming everyone else anyway. He had so many excuses for why they wouldn't initially release Xenoblade Chronicles when HE himself was the reason it wouldn't come to America cuz he didn't think it would sell.

I work part time at retail. This is actually a huge problem with brick and mortar stores. They have to be careful with what they put on the shelves.

Put them online, duh.

Also they should discontinue the current XL colors for an all black and an all white XL.

Actually, I begin to wonder how much power Reggie actually does/did have around that time... When Iwata took position of CEO of NoA, it's been stated that he's replaced a guy by the name of Tatsumi Kimishima. This is a name, rarely ever heard, yet is so high up in the chain of command.

Looking more into the info, Reggie has ALWAYS been the COO, never CEO, despite being considered "President" of NoA. While it's a high position, he might not actually (nor has ever been) in the position to have the final say on whether NoA got certain games or not. But he has always been the one who shows his face, whether delivering good news or bad news.

Just a thought...

Gameboys were damn near every color under the sun.

Oh I am sure many more people had a say in that than just Reggie, I am probably giving him way too much credit in terms of his leverage in the organization. I am just saying he has a habit of pointing the finger a lot of the times when he should be looking in the mirror for starters.

Still an entertaining figure in the industry but sometimes I question his actual knowledge when it comes to games.

It sounds to me like he's just making excuses. Smh.

It could be him making excuses but then again, I'm not the president of a branch of a worldwide company and that has to deal with American retailers.

Sounds about right though considering you do have a limited space for retail.
