I thought Miyomoto was head of Nintendo.

Time did an article on Iwata that nicely sums up who he was, Shadow (http://time.com/3954...o-satoru-iwata/)

Depends, but they can be the same here too

@  furrykef : (07 December 2017 - 02:49 PM)

I don't know about "usually", although this does seem to be the case for Japanese companies. In large American companies, I think it's more likely they're different people.

@  Uncle Ben : (07 December 2017 - 10:10 AM)

President/CEO are usually the same title

@  Uncle Ben : (07 December 2017 - 10:10 AM)

Both

@  Misk : (07 December 2017 - 08:58 AM)

CEO, IIRC.

@  Quickster : (07 December 2017 - 02:21 AM)

Satoru Iwata was, I believe, the previous president of Nintendo.

@  Shadow : (06 December 2017 - 10:06 PM)

Sorry, but who is Iwata?

@  Uncle Ben : (06 December 2017 - 08:40 PM)

He did a small part of the programing from his hospital bed until he couldnt

@  Uncle Ben : (06 December 2017 - 08:39 PM)

He worked on the Switch until the very end

@  Misk : (06 December 2017 - 08:17 PM)

I did believe him when he said he was a gamer at heart. That's a lot more that can be said for a lot of game execs.

@  Misk : (06 December 2017 - 08:15 PM)

I've criticized him a lot, in the past. And I still do stand by them. But it was never anything personal, and though I believe he made some very questionable decisions during his tenure, I don't think I ever doubted that his heart was in the right place.

@  Misk : (06 December 2017 - 08:14 PM)

Wow. I can't believe it's been that long, either.

@  Uncle Ben : (06 December 2017 - 04:55 PM)

55 when he passed.

@  Misk : (06 December 2017 - 04:03 PM)

He was that young?

@  Uncle Ben : (06 December 2017 - 01:40 PM)

Today would have been Iwata’s 58th Birthday

@  Uncle Ben : (05 December 2017 - 01:06 PM)

We've tried too with varying degrees of success

@  Uncle Ben : (05 December 2017 - 09:46 AM)

No.

@  Sandata : (05 December 2017 - 03:34 AM)

...Any way to minimize that preview? Sorry
