Microsoft frontman claims to have invented in-game avatars...on the Amiga

Have you ever played the game, 4D boxing? I never even heard of it until a few minutes ago. Don Mattrick, Senior Vice President responsible for running their Interactive Entertainment Business unit, was involved with creating the title. In a recent interview with OXM, Mr. Mattrick is once again asked about the similarities between Microsoft’s Avatars, and Nintendo’s Miis. This is when Mattrick brings up 4D Boxing, which allowed you to use avatar-like characters.


Is it just me, or does Microsoft seem absolutely desperate to prove that they didn’t copy Nintendo’s Mii idea?
