"I don't think there's anything wrong with pretty graphics, and if I'm a consumer that has an HDTV, I'd want to be able to play my games with nice graphics too. And I think as we've seen the penetration rates for HDTV increase, we're going to see video games and Nintendo's games move along in step with the progression of technology," said Miyamoto.
"But what I don't think is necessarily true is that the graphics itself is something that's going to make the gameplay experience better. So we're still going to focus on the gameplay, but we'll take advantage of the technology as it comes out."
On one hand, Nintendo is probably gearing up to announce a new system soon. It will be great, look great on HDTV and have the amazing games only the mind of Shiggy could come up with.
On the other hand, Nintendo might stay behind a bit and only catch up to, probably 360 horsepower.
Either way, I hope they keep Mario unchanged. Otherwise he'll go from this to this.
