E3: Nintendo Making More Bathroom Scales

In Nintendo’s keynote speech this morning, president Satoru Owata said that none of the employees in his company five years ago could have imagined such success in selling millions of bathroom scales. Who knew that the Wii was not originally intended to be a gaming console? (tic)

In a shocking announcement, Nintendo stated that they have teams working on more Mario games and more Zelda games. And they also plan to get more hot celebrities to shill their games for them, because it works.

Games announced for the Wii include Animal Crossing: City Folk, Star Wars: the Clone Wars, Rayman Raving Rabbids TV Party, Wii Sports Resort, and Call of Duty: World at War.  Wii Music is their new big title, including the ability to play 50 different instruments without any concern with timing or button pressing – just pretend to play with the wiimote or balance board and the Wii will sense the movement. It is meant to be a casual game for players of all ages, up to four at a time.

In an interesting move for Nintendo, they also announced a custom Grand Theft Auto game, China Town Wars, coming to DS this winter.
