Miyamoto not really a big fan of digital distribution

A portion of a MercuryNews interview with Miyamoto…

“Personally, I’m one of those guys who, even if I have all the songs from iTunes, I want the CD as well. I feel more reassured with that physical media. Entertainment is something that will not just become digital. If I look at Wii MotionPlus, this is something that you’re not doing via digital distribution. The thing for us is we really don’t see the future of video games being merely confined to digital distribution or moving solely or even to a majority of our products being distributed that way.” - Miyamoto

This could be one of those statements that comes back and bites Nintendo in the ass. Remember when we heard Nintendo bigwigs saying that there was no future in online gaming?
