Newspaper stands by new DS report

Says Iwata DID mention motion sensor.  

Japanese newspaper the Asahi Shimbun has claimed it did not misinterpret comments Satoru Iwata made recently regarding a new DS.

"The article quoted Nintendo president Satoru Iwata's comment accurately," the paper told Kotaku.

According to the original Asahi Shimbun article Iwata said, "[The new DS will have] highly detailed graphics, and it will be necessary to have a sensor with the ability to read the movements of people playing."

However, Nintendo later said his statement had been misinterpreted.

So who's right and who's wrong? Who knows.
