Shiggy Talks to CNBC

In a quick interview with CNBC, Shigeru says a few words about first/second party titles, the GBA-GC connection, and more!

Reporter: What are your plans for the GBA and GC connection?

Miyamoto: Our plan is to use it in a unique way. In the past, players had to look at the same screen, which give the best players the advantage. Now there is none of that with the GBA and GC connection. This allows a type of strategy and gameplay that no one has seen before. We at Nintendo and hopefully everybody else can take advantage of this.

by Billy Berghammer - 5:17 pm PST

A real quick easy way to wish all of you a very happy holiday season without sending out cards and junk! We're cheap bastards! Are we going to slack off and ignore you for 2 weeks? Hell no ho ho!!!!!

As you read this, I have just arrived home for the holidays, as has the rest of the staff of Planet GameCube. Our company Holiday party was a complete success. Max threw up on Santa, Ty made all the Reindeer write trivia questions, and Dragona kicked Tony Hawk out of the party because he was “wrong”. Good times were had by all. But now we’re off spending the holidays with our respected real families.
