Nintendo President Taking 50% Pay Cut Over Sluggish 3DS Sales
The recently announced Nintendo 3DS price cut almost made us wish
there were enough games out for the thing to make us care about the
news. Nintendo president, Satoru Iwata, however, has gotten around that
problem by footing some of the bill, as well as the responsibility for
the handheld’s less than stellar sales himself. Colour us intrigued.
Putting aside for a moment the fact that
a major executive in an industry frequently lambasted as immature is
showing more accountability and integrity in this one move than the
entire population of Wall Street combined, there’s just something badass
about honorably standing by your decisions and falling on your sword,
even if that sword just happens to be a slightly smaller pile of cash
than you’re used to.
