Nintendo Is Most Afraid Of Cheap Mobile Games

During the latest episode of GameTrailers TV, Nintendo of America President Reggie Fils-Aime discussed the greatest threat facing the company's upcoming 3DS.
According to Nintendo's President, cheap $1 and $2 mobile games are "one of the biggest risks today in our gaming industry."
Fils-Aime made a destinction between "full-fledged" 3DS games such as Steel Driver which he believes are worth their $35 to $45 price range, and the flood of cheap mobile and iPhone games that are "disposable from a consumer standpoint."
"Angry Birds is a great piece of experience," he said, "but that is one compared to thousands of other pieces of content that for one or two dollars I think create a mentality for the consumer that a piece of gaming content should only be $2."
Fils-Aime went as far as stating that he "think[s] some of those games are actually overpriced at $1 or $2, but that's a different story."
