Nintendo Bigwigs Take Pay Cut

Following the announcement of Nintendo’s recent financial results, Nintendo president Satoru Iwata will be taking a 50% reduction on his salary… and legendary game designer Shigeru Miyamoto and Nintendo vet Genyo Takeda will take a 30% wage reduction.

In conjunction, seven other members of Nintendo’s board will take a 20% salary reduction. All of this is happening because Nintendo expects further financial losses in the year ahead, due to the poor sales of the Wii U console.

Dave will tell you that he likes to play video games, this is in fact a lie. What he really likes to do is buy games, and leaving them sitting unopened on his shelf. He is a monster.
