Found this through NeoGAF but thought I'd share it with the GB's here.
I wonder what the thought was when he saw the new avatars? XD
And John Shappert's hand gesture in the 4th photo made me laugh.
I don't see anything wrong about this. It's not like developers are completely biased against other consoles or companies. The fact of the matter is that they all play games, and as such share interests in the current state of the industry. As such a figure, it would be natural for Miyamoto to want to check out how Microsoft is doing, and what they're showing.
Miyamoto is a game designer yes and he works for Nintendo, but I have a hard time believing that he is not a fan of games. While his console might be in the lead it has room to improve and so do his games.
Miyamoto has innovation but maybe not so much any more. He has polish.
Halo 3 record and file share system is innovative.
Bioshock was innovative
Portal was Innovation!
Super Mario Galaxy wasn't so much so.
Despite the fact that he is a competitor I would feel honored that a competitor/Miyamoto would take time away to play my console/game.
"^^^ He even went to play Killzone 2Exactly. I don't see why that's a big deal if he's at another booth other than Nintendo's.
The man likes to see whats going on in the industry, he's just curious
A gamer is a gamer. Yeah he may work for nintendo, but we all know Microsoft and Nintendo are in different competitions. Nintendo and Microsoft make completely different games now, and he probably just needs to satisfy his other fixes. I doubt wii music is able to staisfy his urge for a good shooter.
It doesn't matter where someone stands and what company they represent,if they love games,they are just like all of us,and want to check out what other platforms have to offer,and play everything,I know plenty of people from microsoft and sony play each other's products and have much respect for console specific developers. Not everything is a big war between every single person in the company.
