Shigeru Miyamoto , creator of the world’s most loved Nintendo games does not own a cellphone. He uses his wife’s disinterest to gauge his success in creating enjoyable products, in the form of a “Wife-O-Meter”. He prefers quick handheld games and Angry Birds is his favourite. Steven Spielberg plays Wii games with Miyamoto and Sir Paul McCartney has flown to Kyoto to meet him. In 2006, Miyamoto was made a Chevalier (knight) of the French Ordre des Arts et des Lettres by the French.
