Nintendo E3 Conference
It has now started

Opens with a talking Nintendo cartoon type thing xD
also along with a lot of clips of news and such that were talking about the wii

Opens with reggi Fils-anime

Growth in us is 45%, Europe is 42% japan is 114%
3rd of all systems (nintendo systems) are being bought by women


it takes the to remotes, and puts them into a gun
Games such as a new resident evil and some old acade will be using this right awat, and medal of honor, is built to use the wii zapper.
this will come with the wii, or you can buy it for 19.99

SOUL caliber is coming out for WII

It seems to be a more action game, rather than a fighter

.. and thats all i can do for now, unless there is somehing else big


MArio kart for wii will be online!
The E3 is way smaller than the previous years but there are still some great things. I follow the news of the E3 a lot and I like the Halo3 trailer ver much
woohoo, go nintendo, its making its comeback,
I wasn't a big fan of any of the conferences. I really didn't know what to expect. I was just excited cause previous e3s came with so many awesome announcements. Things got watered down and I guess everything else went with it.
Well the reason E3 isn't as big this year is because they've closed the doors to the general public and made it more of an industry and news-generating conference. G4 has pretty much most of the exclusives and I'm loving it.
Wii Fit is one bad idea! What does nintendo want? Gaming is for fun and not to excerise or sweat! Who buy a game console when you don't play games with it?

Wii fit is a GREAT idea, do you know why the wii is doing so good? because its going after new gamers, wii fit isnt just for fitness, its for having fun. The people that are new gamers and that are playing because of games like wii sports and such, will love this game. they are going after casule gamers, which is what is really selling now, arnt you watching anything on E3??

Dance Dance Revolution... comes to mind... Guitar Hero... that's a 50/50 kinda thing... But DDR is like a Wii Fit, but upgraded.
E3 looks great so far, some highlights for me are StarCraft 2 and COD 4. They both look super sweet, and I'm really looking forward to them. StarCraft 2 goes without saying. COD4 will be out this fall, and I can't wait to hop in the AC130 Gunship and do some major distuction. What you guys like so far?
