Remember when we told you that Shuhei Yoshida, the president of Sony Computer Entertainment's Worldwide Studios, purchased a Wii U? Turns out he's on the Miiverse...and having a bit of a jab at Nintendo.




Nothing to serious at all. It seems quite playful in nature. I doubt Nintendo will respond, as they don't want fans knowing what Reggie's NNID is!

Well PlayStation is better then Nintendo in every way possible. Nintendo is only for people who like baby games. :mrgreen:

"Trolls"? Wait, what... But "trolling" means... Oh.

Guess the appropriate response to that would be back_in_the_days_trolling_meant_something.jpg.

@LegendofSantiago
More like a fun joke. It's not like Nintendo employees don't own Sony consoles. Masahiro Sakurai (the guy who made Smash Bros. and Kirby) claims to own multiple copies of various Sony consoles (as well as probably multiple Nintendo consoles).

@Johnknight1 I'm not bothered by it (hence "harmless trolling" but i still think it's considered trolling. He's on miiverse on the wii U saying he loves the playstation. YOSP seems like a cool guy, i'm not bothered by it.

Not really trolling. Still, I'd love to see either Reggie or Iwata reply to his comment or something, it'd be quite neat.

Indeed. It's a completely useless term nowadays. It's been reduced to mere name-calling towards whoever one disagrees with.

This has made the internet somewhat less tolerable over the years, as now you can rarely have a debate with somebody without getting called a 'troll'. (Well, it depends on the subject, gaming is one where it is very common)

So he's trying to troll by partaking in Nintendo's community after buying their new console? I think Nintendo came out on top in that affair.

Ah, but he imported a Wii U - using the strong Yen and Nintendo's first home console sold at a loss to bring Nintendo down from within! Bloody genius...

I thought Miiverse was troll proof…
