An interview with Nvidia’s CEO Jen-Hsun Huang about the company’s earnings call has just recently been released. In it, a question came up about the company’s growth in gaming revenue. The revenue in this area saw a 60 percent jump and rose by $576 million over the last quarter.
Jen-Hsun Huang states that Nintendo had helped a fair amount in that regard. Huang then goes on to state that people will be amazed with the upcoming Nintendo Switch.
“I guess you could also say that Nintendo contributed a fair amount to that growth. And over the next – as you know, the Nintendo architecture and the company tends to stick with an architecture for a very long time. And so we’ve worked with them now for almost two years. Several hundred engineering years have gone into the development of this incredible game console. I really believe when everybody sees it and enjoys it, they’re going be amazed by it. It’s really like nothing they’ve ever played with before. And of course, the brand, their franchise and their game content is incredible. And so I think this is a relationship that will likely last two decades and I’m super excited about it.”
Although I personally can’t see Nintendo’s partnership with Nvidia lasting two decades, I really hope that it does, and that these claims come to fruition.
