Reggie's not holding back
Reggie recently had a sit-down chat at SXSW where he addressed a number of topics. During a discussion about Facebook, Reggie wasn’t afraid to share his full thoughts on the company’s direction.
“Facebook itself is not an innovative company. They have either acquired interesting things like Oculus and Instagram, or they’ve been a fast follower of people’s ideas. I don’t think their current definition will be successful.”
There’s no doubt innovation is very important to Reggie, and he sees it as the lifeblood of a company. Reggie very proudly trumpeted Nintendo’s innovation while with the company, even when a few of Nintendo’s bold steps didn’t take off. That spirit of innovation fuels Nintendo, and is an absolutely crucial piece of who they are.
