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.

And that’s that. One of the greatest E3s for years is done. There were megatons. People are still hiding under their kitchen tables. The conferences were nothing if not sensational. Our goosebumps refuse to settle.
But let’s not be rational. Let’s mark the platform holders’ performances out of ten. Let’s say who “won”. Why not?

Did Nintendo learn its lesson from last you? Yes sir. The company’s E3 press conference today included two Wii Mario games and a Metroid Team Ninja title for Wii.
That should shut the “hardcore” right up.

In probably the biggest bombshell at this year’s E3, Nintendo company President Satoru Iwata has announced the Wii Vitality Sensor.
It’s a device that recognises your pulse when you shove your finger in it and helps you stay vital, or something.
Looks like a bull-clip. Nasty.

Nintendo president Satoru Iwata says that Nintendo has brought millions of new people into gaming, and over 295 million people currently play games.
How many own a Wii or Nintendo system was not mentioned.
Even though people are beginning to think that fewer and fewer are getting into gaming and Nintendo’s ability is fading, research conducted by the company says that there are an additional 149 million considering getting into gaming.
For every 2 players, there’s one wanting to get into gaming.
This can enlarge gaming populace by fifty percent.

Nintendo has announced a Mario vs. Donkey Kong game that allows you to make user created content and load your levels to your Wi-Fi connection.

Available as download on DSiWare next week on June 8.

Cammie Dunaway has just announced Wii Fit Plus at Nintendo’s E3 presser.
There’s locker room added, and you can be your own personal trainer. It will include 15 new balance games, too.
No date as yet.

Cammie Dunaway has just announced that New Super Mario Bros. Wii is coming this holiday 2009.
It was all over before you knew it: Cammie came on stage, dropped the Super Mario Bros. Wii bomb, then fired off another salvo announcing that it’s out this year.
The press conference is on-going.
[UPDATE] Full press release with details is after the break.

It’s time. Nintendo will take to the E3 stage in Los Angeles today for its 2009 keynote, and the world’s watching with stern eyes.
The Kyoto monster came unstuck at the US show last year with a weak program centred on Wii Music, and there’s a lot to prove this time out. The hardcore want blood. Mario and Zelda blood. Wii Fit Plus blood. The thrill of the megaton. The flash’s heat. The desperate stench of plumber crotch.
If the sum total of today’s showing is Cammie “Pegs” Dunaway throwing a virtual Frisbee for a dog, there’ll be ugly scenes.
When? The fanboy massive holds its breath from 9.00am PST/5.00pm BST/6.00pm CET. Get our liveblog after the break.
Remember: the Sony conference follows directly after at 11.00am PST/7.00pm BST/8.00pm CET.
