Wii, Myself and I
I've had the first glimpse of what the rest of my year is going to be like.
Every time the Nintendo folks say wee, I don't know whether they're saying the pronoun or the name of their machine.
"wee will make things better" ... "wee will never sleep" ...
Maybe it's a clever way to keep Sony or Microsoft from ever using the first-person plural whenever they have to say something out loud.
Before the presentation started, one of the bloggers sitting behind me said to his compatriots, "Remember, no fanboyism -- if something happens, polite clapping is enough."
The games looked pretty fun -- the cool thing with the Wii, of course, is the controller. Legendary Nintendo game designer Shigeru Miyamoto came out on stage in a tuxedo and started waving the controllers around for a game that lets you conduct an orchestra. They also had some kind of lottery or contest that allowed fans to go up on stage and play a tennis game. The fans had never played it before but seemed to pick it up pretty quickly.
