In an interview with Reuters, Iwata spoke of the unprecedented success of the PlayStation 2, adding "if we can make our bid to expand the gaming population a continued success, we could exceed that."
When it comes to the recent fire sale of the PlayStation 3, Iwata doesn't seem terribly concerned, noting that the overlap between the customers Sony is targeting against those of Nintendo is quite small. However, Reuters claims that Sony's "price drop" was a move to better compete with Nintendo. If that's the case, we anxiously await their bathroom scale peripheral.
