According to Reggie Fils-Aimé, Meta (formerly Facebook) is not in a position that will allow him to succeed in the metaverse field.
Facebook , which has now become a Meta , has already had the opportunity to talk about its plans for expansion in the metaverse sector and its intention to invest particularly in this sector. While this move had to speed up the work that could lead this reality to become an integral part of our world, there are also many users who have followed the events and are in a particularly skeptical position regarding the plans of the social network giant.
Reggie Fils-Aimé , former president and COO of Nintendo of America is among these, given that during the SXSW he spoke to Emily Chang of Bloomberg about how the current definition of the company regarding the metaverse leaves many doubts. According to Fils-Aimé, in fact, Facebook is not an innovative company, and it is not the one that should carry out this type of projects, as it is not in a sufficiently creative position.
According to the former president, therefore, the company will not be successful with its plans, and therefore it seems that there will be other companies to take this initiative, with for example Epic Games that seems to be doing a great job in terms of innovation. . The video game industry has actually found itself in a rather controversial situation with regard to some new technologies, and actually it is not clear how everything will have the opportunity to evolve, although Fils-Aimé has also kept us to believe the Microsoft ‘s acquisition of Activision Blizzard fantastic.
Obviously it will remain to be seen how the situation will evolve over the next few years, with the former president of Nintendo of America who is certainly an authoritative source, but who for now has only provided predictions that could be disproved by the next maneuvers that Meta will accomplish.
