Wii Music is "more interesting than a videogame", says Miyamoto

It's a "musical toy", don't you know.

Legendary Nintendo developer Shigeru Miyamoto has said he agrees with those who say WIi Music isn't a proper videogame - adding that he reckons it's even better.

Miyamoto was speaking in a Q&A session at an E3 roundtable hosted by Nintendo. One journalist observed that many traditional videogame elements, such as high scores and defined achievements, don't appear to feature in Wii Music. Therefore, he said, isn't it more like a musical toy than a game?

"Yes, that's right," replied Miyamoto. "And that's why it's more interesting than a videogame." And that's all he had to say on the matter.
