In the latest episode of IGN’s Nintendo Voice Chat podcast, Nintendo guru Matt Casamassina spoke of a recent “hang-out” session with NOA president Reggie Fils-Aime in which, if Casamassina’s take on the tale is to be believed, the two had a chat about videogames. More specifically, Wii why-God-why sim Disaster: Day of Crisis.
Apparently, Reggie isn’t flashing his trademark kind-of-a-grin at this one. Said Casamassina:
“We hung out with Reggie, and basically, he doesn’t think Disaster is a $50 game. Especially in terms of audio, which he said is laughable. He said he’s going to watch it and see how it performs in Europe. If it does well, you’ll probably get it in America, and if it’s a bomb, you probably won’t.”
So yeah. Sounds like money well spent.
