You might have noticed that Nintendo held a conference at the beginning of October. It was filled with announcements and for once felt like a real show, which was enough to get most a little excited.
There's no pleasing some people, of course, and there was some moaning about the details of the DSi, in particular the extremely low resolution of one of its cameras. But, overall, feedback is favourable, and there is curiosity over how Nintendo is preparing to power through this new version of its portable and make it a 'must have' for people who currently own a DS Lite.
Now, as for the Wii, attention in Japan at the moment is directed towards Dobutsu No Mori (Animal Crossing) and Monster Hunter 3.
