OF course they would say and 'believe' that.
Also note the use of the word, potential.

Has he SEEN the 3rd party graphs?
Heck, did he even Look at his own numbers?

Allies he says. IF everybody Knows about Pokemon, then they also know about Nintendo. So how does that even work? Do people who use mobile devices NOT know what a Pokemon is or what companies they come from?
And he makes it sound like mobile devices are not(Of course zombies'can't use other word' would defend their, Masters), threatening. Devices mayhaps not, superficially speaking. But shifting the primary focus of games TO Mobile devices, That's bad. I see this as them trying to get their foot in(out?) the door, before the slowly creep inside, then shut us out. Now this is a direct opinion: I don't think the kind of people Nintendo are after with this mobile campaign are the kind of people that they would like to cater too, that is, unless All they truly care about now is Money.
