Shigeru Miyamoto told Channel 4 news last night that he is confident that the games industry will beat the current credit crisis.

“We need to eat in order to live – that’s our first priority,” Miyamoto said. “But entertainment and the enrichment of our souls must come in second place.

“Nintendo’s mission is to take advantage of improving cheaper technology to create reasonable and affordable entertainment. It’s very good value,” he added.

After all the reports of normal, hard-working people losing their pensions overnight, we’re just glad Nintendo and Miyamoto are staying positive.
