On the latest Xbox Podcast, Major Nelson sat down with former Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aimé.
Reggie appeared on the show to promote his new book, Disrupting the Game - discussing his rise to the top of Nintendo and also his time within the video game industry.
One story that came up early during the interview was about the time Larry got Reggie to sign his Nintendo DS at the launch of Mario Kart DS. Reggie admits he wasn't all that familiar with Larry - because he was a relatively new face, but he definitely remembers this occasion.
Here's the full story from Larry Hyrb's perspective:
"Now, I have to share something with you...it was about 2004/05 I had just joined the Xbox team and you were doing an event...I found a photo of you and I together, you and I are looking a little bit younger there, but more importantly you signed my DS, which was to me as a video game fan it was great to have that, and that is actually one of my real treasures that I have here...it was such a fun moment and I'm so glad that you remember that, I really appreciate all of that and you're so gracious..."
During the same interview, Reggie also mentioned the "physical proximity" between the Nintendo and Xbox offices in America - further noting how they live in the "same community" and how the industry is a "pretty small group" in terms of key executives, where companies are always communicating and running into each other at all sorts of venues and events.
