That new Kirby game comes to mind.. After all, he was a developer for HAL Labs before he became the Prez!

i suspect the successor to the wii.

" not only about how video gaming has evolved, but also, more importantly, he will offer his views on where we go from here.”

That quote suggests what you're suspecting. At least I hope so - if it's just a rehash of what the 3DS does for a slightly different audience, then it still fits this quote, but it's not nearly as interesting to us.

" if it's just a rehash of what the 3DS does for a slightly different audience"

Do explain...

Meaning that Nintendo might see GDC as a place to talk about the 3DS to smaller developers - they already have a huge amount of support from the big third-party guys for launch, but maybe they'd be looking for small-business and independent support on the downloadable titles end of things. He may relate its capabilities to the generation of new ideas, as opposed to unveiling a completely new system.

To the press, and to people following hardware news, it would be a rehash. To smaller devs, it would be a publicity push and a spark for some new possibly-downloadable games.

As someone who isn't a dev, I'm hoping that's not the case, and that we'll see the Wii's successor soon. Sorry I wasn't clearer - I know the word "rehash" has some negative undertones, but that wasn't what I was going for.

too soon for that, they don't want to split there customer's attention from the 3DS

"But in the process, part of the magic of those early days of game creation has been lost."

Nintendo is going to be pulling a Golden-Age.
We will se more of them oldschool games like NSMBWii, DKCR, new kirby game...
Be afraid hardcore gamers, sh/t is getting hardcore.

nintendo will go back to cartridges :)

Seedhouse2398d ago

Although, technically the DS systems still use carts ;)

ChickeyCantor2398d ago

there is nothing wrong with cartridges though.
Biggest advantage it has are basically NO loading times ( even though the GCN handled this pretty well)

Kos-Mos2398d ago

"Cha click"
Yes finally I can play Zelda 2 after blowing the cartridge.

You do realize your blowing plaque on to the connectors. Plaque is not a conductor. Notice ds carts and other cart base systems don't have that problem yet when your psp breaks, pretty much any thing with ps on it you have to pay more money.

Oh and the ngc uses carts lol.

Kos-Mos2397d ago

We all blew and in a shining hope we thought it might work.
Try research who actually made the idea of blowing...the cartridge.

pcz2398d ago

haha seedhouse, thats true.. hadn't thought of that.

@ kos mos, or blowing into a ocarina of time 3d cartridge lol
