At the E3 Nintendo Developer Roundtable that followed day two of the gaming expo, Shigeru Miyamoto and Katsuya Eguchi - the latter is the producer on Wii Sports Resort, Animal Crossing City Folk and Wii Music - spent additional time with the press showing off upcoming Wii wares. The two also fielded a barrage of questions from the crowd.
One question asked of Miyamoto was Wii Music's qualifications as a game. You know, a game game. Since Wii Music has no discernible scoring system, no goals and little in the way of those squishy innards that makes a game a "game," isn't it just a "musical toy"? That was the question posed by one European journo.
"Yes, that's right," Miyamoto curtly replied "And that's why it's better than a video game."
