While there is definitely more buzz, some have suggested the price is too high. How do you respond to that?

Takahashi I think different people have a different sense of the value of the system. And while we've heard some folks respond that way, there are certainly people that look at Switch and the versatility of the playstyle and the different types of play that it offers and they feel it is a suitable pricepoint. It comes down a little bit to personal opinion, we think there is quite a bit of value in the system.

Often the conversation over pricing is to do with the Switch's comparative power, do you find that frustrating when you think about what else the Switch offers?

Koizumi When we talk about the Joy-Con, it's important to convey that in this very small size and low weight piece of hardware there are a lot of different components, and many were very important to allow people to experience the different play-styles we're going for in order to further the concept of how to reach more people with these different types of games. I think that after people experience they will understand the value of all that's packed in there.

So for those who are making these types of judgments right now, I 'd really like them to have the opportunity to experience the console and to start thinking about the value of these experiences rather than some of the other factors like power.

Takahashi And of course we'll continue to release games that will make people understand why we've created the Joy-Con in the way that we have as we release more and more games that take advantage of the functionality and understand that value.

Ich sehe, auch nach Iwatas Tod werden wir weiterhin mit "Please understand"-Floskeln versorgt.
Ich verstehe auch, dass sehr viel Technik im Zubehör verbaut ist - aber wenn ich es zum halben Preis haben könnte, wenn die ganzen Gimmicks einfach nicht drin wären, dann würde ich mir das eher holen.

Ich verlange keine Einsicht von ihnen, denn in einer Welt voller Apple-Zeug-User und vor allem verhältnismäßig teuerer Hardware müssen die sich wirklich nicht rechtfertigen.
