But Nintendo’s President Satoru Iwata does not seem at all threatened. Rather, he told Times Online that “Nintendo will not be standing still” and that the company is “always at work on something new.”

“So, I am not in a position to judge whether they are a threat or not [Sony/Microsoft motion technology]. And they should bear in mind that over the next year Nintendo will not be standing still. We’re always at work on something new. I am actually looking forward to engaging in that sort of competition, because it gives our whole industry the chance to expand the gaming population.”
