    Billions of man-hours and dollars have been consumed by the hardware wars, but the deciding factor, according to one man, will be the Pokemon franchise.

    Never mind classics like Mario, and don’t worry about whatever stuff is still in development. Nintendo will win the hardware wars because of Pokemon, said Tsunekazu Ishihara, CEO the Pokemon Company, during an interview with Gamespot.

    I’ll tip my hat to Tom Ivan and leave you to shake your head in amazement, now. Have a good day.


    haha..thats for all u pokemon fans...

    I don't like pokemon but I don't hate it. I liked the old old gb games but I'm older now. Of course the CEO of the entire pokemon company is going to think his game is hot.

    The Pokemon game has alot of followers =]
    Plus alot of people who buy PBR will then buy a DS and Diamon Pearl so they can interact. So Pokemon will win not Wii :p

    Why does it suck ass? We're making fun of the CEO of pokemon because he thinks his game will make or break the wii. I'm sure 7,589,123 people didn't get a wii to play pokemon. (I pulled that number from nexgenwars.com)

    Is this more proof that Nintendos target audience is 8 year old girls?

    Its not meant to offend you but the largest market for Pokemon items happen to be preteen girls.

    I still have my copy of Pokemon red with a naturally evolved gyarados witch has 3 different types of strong elemental attacks and one dragon type attack.

    The Pokemon series has always been Nintendo's biggest franchise since the beginning, so its no surprise that he made that comment. Whatever happens, I don't think Nintendo will ever abandon Pokemon.

    OK Hi,

    I was just talking to my co worker about Pokemon. How will the game play be? Is it like the old GB game where you walk around find & fight pokemons, then trying to beat the local gym masters? I asked the guy @ my local EB and he had no idea.

    I never played Pokemon Stadium.

    He asked if you can play against other Wii owners in games, that brought Pokemon up.
    Yeah you should sit in our World Of Warcraft discussions.

    Lol. I love getting into little arguments at school. I usually win because I'm the only one that posts on forums and reads ign.
