Aftershock: Nintendo's E3 2008 Press Conference

What did you think? Was it fun? Was it heart-wrenching and upsetting?

We got a few, exciting additions to the Wii in terms of hardware. We have the best solution to a parent's concern over voice chat, being Wii Speak. We have an enhanced gaming experience in the Wii MotionPlus.

There are some new games to look forward to. Old IPs were revisited in Animal Crossing and Wii Sports. We have family-friendly fun with Wii Music, a game that takes music games to a whole new level.

G4 interviewed Reggie after the conference and said what about the core gamer? Reggie said, what do you mean we announced Animal Crossing and GTA for the DS. I'm surprised he was able to say that with a straight face.

Will 3rd parties jump on the motion plus? It means consumers have to buy the dongle first before they can play your game. Either they create games that can fall back to the dongleless controller or they won't create games specificially for the motion plus. It's hard enough for 3rd parties to sell Wii software, further segregating people won't help.

well both the ps3 and 360 have a ton of games that sell in the millions so their ratio of popular games vs total games is way better than nintendo... they were proud of the fact that almost all wii games suck.

it probably woulda been better had they not shown up at e3. basically the same thing.
