Follow-Up Justification for Save Yourself

Just to follow up on [my game save post](, this was on Gamespot today:

**[Iwata on ‘The End of Indifference to Games’](**

>As an indicator of the market’s health, Iwata cited the number of game users per household in light of the Nintendo DS’s popularity. Console game machine users usually number between 2.2 and 2.8 users per household. By contrast, the Nintendo DS is used by three people on average per home–on other handhelds, this figure is 2.0 per household. Iwata speculated that “adjusting for single-person households, there are probably households of four or more in which everyone plays the DS.”

Three DS users per household, yet we still have games that pretend that only one person would ever want to save data on it at a time.
