Moreover, in a more, Iwata replied to questions about the resignation. Iwata plainly said, "I don't recall saying I'd resign."
He also stated that the company doesn't focus on failure and puts all its effort into achieving its goal.
Thank god Iwata isn't resigning. I know I wouldn't resign if I was president of Nintendo! Why and how even the Japanese press had this little misunderstanding is beyond me. Nothing seems like it is set in stone and who knows what might happen in the next eight months. That said...
What are you thinking about Iwata's position and stance at Nintendo?
