Wada-san notes the last stages have gone "very smoothly this time." It also took a "tremendous amount of time" to develop this gen.
"We've completed the master of the Japanese version, and for the US and European versions we're just adding the final touches," Wada-san tells .
"The last stage of development has gone very smoothly this time," he added. "It took us a tremendous amount of time to develop the software for this generation, so that's a lesson for the creators." Wants a one console world, but long hardware cycles are next best.
"The ideal situation for developers would be to have a single platform worldwide - but that's impossible, so with multi-platform, if you can expand your user base, I think we have to accept that reality," he explained.
"For the current generation, the ideal for us would be a long platform cycle and the prices to come down gradually, so that we can expand that user base."
