Nintendo's E3 Announcements

Man, I love Nintendo. They gave out a lot of stats about how well their systems are doing and how they are expanding the market, and it’s hard to disagree with that. One interesting stat: on other systems, women are 20% of gamers; on the Wii, they make up 33%. A few game release dates are given (Super Mario Galaxy: Nov 12th). There are new controllers: the “Zapper”, which is a gun for shooters, a little steering wheel for Mario Kart Wii, and a frickin’ mat for the fitness game Wii Fit which is a great idea.
