SATORU IWATA
Current Status: Game king



Changing The Game By: Expanding the world of video games, which for years has been the fastest growing entertainment industry in the country. As the head of Nintendo -- and only the company's fourth president since 1889 -- Iwa has overseen the launch of the Wii, which easily dwarfs the sales of Sony's PlayStation 3 and Microsoft's Xbox 360. How? By attracting a broader gaming set -- from grandmas dropping pounds with Wii Fit to would-be rockers living it up on Guitar Hero. Nine video games are sold every second in North America, and lots are Wii games. So much for Bill Gates saying a few years back that Nintendo would be a "niche player" in the next-generation console wars.



Secret to His Success: "On my business card, I am a corporate president. In my mind, I am a game developer. But in my heart, I am a gamer."
