>> Hey guys, what's up?
>> It's Brian Tong from www.cnet.com, here at E3. Now, we just finished up Nintendo's media briefing. It was a combination of announcements that involved hardware and software. Now, they got things rolling with Shaun White's Snowboarding. He was actually on stage doing his thing, and it really showcased the bounce board being used in a more advanced way. Really, we've seen Wii Fit being a little more basic with Yoga poses and some exercise, but he was carving in and out, jumping on the half pipe [assumed spelling]. So it was the first time, we've really seen a game outside of the Wii Fit Franchise using the bounce board. Another announcement that they made was the use of social interaction in their games in the form of Animal Crossing City Folk. Now, a piece of hardware that is going to be a companion with this, it's called the WiiSpeak Mic [assumed spelling]. And what it showcase is the fact that, they showed like four guys fishing and that if you were in the same room or location with somebody, you guys could have an open conversation as if you were in the same room.
>> Aw, that was fun.
>> Now, another piece of hardware that they announced is the Wii Motion Plus and the best way to describe this, it's an accessory attachment on the bottom of the WiiMote. What it allows the WiiMote to be is super sensitive, super responsive, they showcased this with software as a companionship called Wii Sports resort. And they did a demo where there was a Frisbee. You tilt your wrist. It tilts your wrist in a one to one relationship. So that was another hot piece of hardware and software combined. Now, they also gave us a little sneak pit, just a tid bit of some hardcore software coming to the DS in the form of Grand Thief Auto, Chinatown Wars. Now, we saw no screenshots, we just saw a logo, but the crowd enjoyed that. And finally to put smiles on everyone faces. At the end of the show, they showcased Wii Music. Now, it was developed along side of Wii Play and Wii Sports and Wii Fit. But what this allows people to do is basically pick up their controllers and play music. You don't have to know anything about music. There are no rhythm cues. There are no actual notes to hit. I could see myself picking this up, messing around with a bunch of friends. And also the drum set was really advanced. So there you go with Nintendo's announcements. A lot of hardware, a lot of software all combined to bring out some great stuff coming down the road for this year and next season.
