Iwata: Nintendo’s E3 press conference was a bit rubbish

Nintendo president Satoru Iwata said in the firm’s Q1 investor call this month – we think he did, anyway: this is according to NintendoEverything – that Nintendo’s E3 briefing was a bit rubbish. For shame.

“As for the media briefing at E3, of course we had many internal discussions after that,” he said.

“Honestly speaking, none of us at Nintendo thought that our presentation at E3 was as good as it could have been.

“It is apparent that we could not fully convey the charm of our products.”

Iwata explained that motion-based games from previous years are better to perform on stage. This year was a tough call.

“This year… with the New Super Mario Bros. Wii, four people lined up with Wii Remotes was not a scene that no one had ever seen,” he added.

There’s more through there.

    This is where the “no shit” catagory takes effect.

    But that said, it was better then the briefings from 07 and 08 at least, but that’s saying something.
