Nintendo representatives have stated in the past few weeks that the Japanese company is interested in streaming technology. Recently, Nintendo of America's Doug Bowser commented on the matter as well, saying that they are closely watching streaming technology and how the Nintendo Switch is already delivering on some of the promises of streaming.
According to a recent report from Fortune, Doug Bowser said that the Nintendo Switch is already delivering on many of the promises of game streaming. Still, the company is closely watching, and looking at, the technology.
The Switch delivers on a lot of the promises [of streaming], it’s a device where you can play anywhere, at any time, with anyone. It’s obviously something that we’re closely watching, and looking at, and understanding.
During the Q&A session held during the latest investors call, Nintendo's president Shuntaro Furukawa commented on streaming and cloud gaming, saying that Nintendo must keep up with changes in the gaming environment.
I don’t think all games will move to the cloud right now, but the technology is steadily advancing. In the future, I expect that technologies such as the cloud and streaming will evolve further as a way to deliver games to consumers. We must keep up with such changes in the environment. On the other hand, I believe that our core value, the unique entertainment experiences that can only be achieved through the development of integrated hardware and software, will further increase in value. Delivering unique entertainment that only Nintendo can create will continue to be our top priority.
