Nintendo exec. apologizes for 'geeks and otaku' remark

Nintendo Europe's senior marketing director, Laurent Fischer, has apparently apologized for comments made earlier in the week, in which he said that the only people interested in a Wii hard drive would be "geeks and otaku." Fisher tells videogaming247 that he didn't mean to use those terms in a way to cause offense. He regrets any "misunderstanding" that was created by his comments within the community.

What say ye Nintendo legions, forgive Fisher or should his penance be more profound?
