“Iwata-San only ever invests in something he can guarantee will work for a Nintendo audience. 3DV showed off a camera that detected motion in 3D, and had voice recognition – but Iwata-San was unconvinced he could sell it at a Nintendo price point. He also had some worries around latency during gameplay.” – a top insider at Nintendo’s Japan HQ

This isn’t the first time we’ve heard about Nintendo turning down Natal-like features. Last year, Iwata told that a camera was considered for the Wii, but Nintendo ultimately decided against using such technology.

“We’ve always loved working on the series. Since Origins we’ve spent a lot of time with the series. For us we felt we’ve put our stamp on the series with Shattered Memories so we’d love the opportunity to do another one. So everybody go and buy it!” – Sam Barlow, lead designer on Shattered Memories.

So far, I’d say Climax’s work on the Silent Hill series has been received well. If the development team were to address criticism from Origins and Shattered Memories, I’d bet that their next Silent Hill title would be even more enjoyable than the previous two games.
