    Whats up with Aaron’s voice all episode? He sound different and not just when he is doing all his weird voices.

    I’m not a huge fan of Inafune’s games, though I assume this means we will never see another Breath of Fire, it is interesting to see the exodus of high profile Japanese developers from their parent companies. This concerns me that major japanese game franchises will continue to stagnate. For example FF has gone down hill since Sakaguchi left. I imagine Inafune’s creations will suffer as these key designers like Infanue seemed to be the last defense between the creative properties and the “bean counters’ in management.

    In regards to Nintendo’s forecast I agree with Aaron. Despite the desire of publishers to extend consoles life cycles the “5 years” is a natural function of the market and seems to have been for a long time now. In addition did Nintendo really think they could escape the world wide depression/recession? This downturn is part of the console life cycle amplified by world wide conditions and I’m sure they will rebound once the release 3DS and Wii2 release. Also a 24 million dollar loss for a company with 7 billion in assets is not a huge deal.
