Reggie Fils-Aime says game streaming will definitely be the future over the next decade


The Hollywood Reporter caught up with former Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime at this week’s The Game Awards and questioned him about the future of gaming and the video games industry, Reggie says he believes the future of gaming will be “playing any game on any device at any time.”

 “As the technology evolves to be cloud, and as download speeds increase, what it means is you’re going to be able to play any game on any device at any time,” he said, adding that, of course, gamers shouldn’t expect that in the very near term. “It will happen over the next decade and be something that’s really meaningful for players.”

Asked about his early experiences with Nintendo, Fils-Aimé responded, “My first system was the Super Nintendo, so I played Super Mario World — and ended the game with 99 lives — and The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past. I had over 80 games on that system, and I think that helped me with the fans and the company, because I knew the content so well. … For me it’s been a part of my growing up. I was with Nintendo of America for 15 years. Now, being able to be like a fan [again] and celebrate this industry is really special.”
