    Miyamoto gave IGN an interview apparently (dunno if it's an exclusive interview, but they kept updating the site each five minutes with something new about the guy [​IMG])

    Anyway.. there's light at the end of the tunnel.

    Summing up:

    source: ign.com (the thing is spread on like 10 pages.. dunno why they done that.. maybe to get the answers faster, maybe cause they're stupid)

    "Of course, the MotionPlus attachment will come bundled with Wii Sports Resort, shipping next week. But what does this mean for the future of the Wii remote? It looks like it'll become the standard."

    That doesn't seem all that right to me.

    Useless addons: How nintendo combats piracy!
    The only thing that really sent shivers down my spine was Mario Galaxy 2.
    Not announcing more storage right now = phail.
    Where is GS3?
    New Zelda better not be as meh as TP was.

    Seriously, just don't use it then. And they're being sold separately too..

    I can understand how the Wii zapper was stupid and useless, but this actually improves something.

    Ha, I wonder if it gets tiring working on nothing but Zelda and Mario games all the time. [​IMG]

    I guess Nintendo wants to save their major announcements for somewhere other than E3. Nintendo pulling a Sega with the MotionPlus? Wonder how that'll end up.

    Yeah, I've been digging for some sort of official price and time announcement. I don't think one has been made. A post on Kotaku indicated it wasn't coming out until Spring 2009, but I haven't seen that anywhere else.

    Next week would be awesome, but I somehow think that IGN pulled that out of their ass and the website editor didn't notice it or think to question it - or nobody even double checked the post before it went live.

    I think it's called a "typo". If I'm not mistaken Reggie said it himself that it was Spring 2009.

    [​IMG] A typo would be them saying "next sprung" instead of "next spring", but I see what you're saying. I missed the part of the presentation when he said Spring 2009.

    They must be planning on manufacturing a massive stockpile of those things to match anticipated demand. After all, there are what, probably 50+ million Wii Remotes out there worldwide, so my guess is they'll need a lot of these things pretty much right away. It's the only reason I can think of a delay between this announcement and release.

    I would love to see a new Zelda but I want it to look like Wind Waker, fell free to do the older Link just use the Wind Waker cel shading style.
