10:20 DS/Wii love for new Final Fantasy game, as well as new Animal Crossing. Maybe that’s why the graphics are so booty, it was actually a DS game the whole time, not Wii. Animal Crossing comes with Wii Speak, costs $75.
10:40 Ack!! They’re showing Punch-Out!! Why am I not in Japan?! And Sin and Punishment 2? WTF NINTENDO that one’s for some hardcore fans. Dynasty Warriors on the Wii — hope it doesn’t suck.
10:48 Uh, Monster Hunter 3! Time for me to get a Wii, I guess.
10:50 Miyamoto is talking about Wii Music. Bring back Punch-Out!
11:00 Miyamoto still talking. No amount of convincing will make this happen, big guy. Focus your gaming brain on making a new Blaster Master instead.
