Depending on who you listen to, Nintendo has had a stronger or weaker showing at E3 -- but the general consensus, even among the enthusiast press, seems to be trending positively.
The company is largely in iterative mode, relying on trusted IP on both the casual (Wii Sports Resort) and hardcore (Metroid: Other M) sides, with two new Mario games in between. The major surprise was the Wii Vitality Sensor, which showed -- uncharacteristically -- without so much as a concept demo.
Meanwhile, the competition in the console wars, Sony and Microsoft, both showed advanced motion control solutions for their platforms.
Gamasutra spoke to Denise Kaigler, Nintendo of America's VP of corporate affairs, to find out her take on the show's announcements at her company and at the others, and to see if we could gauge the mindset of the company that seems locked into the industry's number one spot at the moment.
