He's clearly not accepting of constructive feedback from his employees and can't deal with those who have disagreements, since it seems in his mind they're always wrong and he is always right.
The naming of the system, the poor online infrastructure, and the same bad 3rdparty relationship really cements it.

Tookay (NeoGAF) wrote:While I think you're being downright hyperbolic about him being a horrible CEO (the dude's pretty prescient), I do think Iwata has been dropping the ball lately in one respect: he has an acute sense of where Nintendo's weaknesses are, yet follows it up by continuing to make the same mistakes all over again. They need to be faster at changing their corporate structure.

He's also responsible for the 3DS needing an 80 dollar price cut less than a year after launch and a dramatic retooling of its software roadmap to turn sales around.
This man's done a bang-up job completely masking what were once positives about his tenure as CEO. Couple that with this frankly flabbergasting series of obvious PR disasters and I too think it's time for a restructuring.
