OK, it was more management direction this week - as opposed to the retailer stuff last week.

DS part:
http://www.famitsu.com/game/news/200...54485,0,0.html

Stats (for Japan):
32% of DS owners bought Animal Crossing
23% Mario Kart
14% Tetris
20% New Super Mario Bros
10 titles have shipped a million now, quite a feat.

Opera will be delayed a month... coming out in July now.

The Oneseg TV tuner will go on sale in Autumn and will cost "approximately half the price of the DS hardware" = ~8400 yen.

Nintendo aims to continue the Touch Generations series, with the balance between "non-games" and games being very important to them. Seems they want to get more non-gamers into games gradually - the above stats seem to indicate such a motion.

Pokemon will have wi-fi worldwide voicechat.


Wii part:
http://www.famitsu.com/game/news/200...54492,0,0.html

Shipping 4 million by the end of the calendar year (worldwide)
Pokemon Battle Revolution will be out a few months after Pearl/Diamond and will link with the DS game.

New games (not just the emulated stuff) on Virtual Console could also be 500-1000 yen.

Main DS-Wii connectivity will be:
- touch-screen controller
- Wii = DS station, like the shop kiosks
- DS games can be expanded via Wii

Pokemon Wii:

doesn't the nsmb stat indicate ~1.7 million sold? (20% 8.5 million)

edit - 10 million+ titles?

Do we have any word on how Pokemon over wi-fi will work? Just battles and trades, or something more?

I haven't bought a Pokemon game for about 6 years, but I think I'll get this one.

Great! So perhaps Wi-Fi battling is a possibility then.

I take it the rest of those stats apply to Japan? Or are those "global" percentages?

good news.

could be big, but it also sounds like it could be a link-up game with diamond/pearl.

great timing, sure to sell a few consoles.

The link-up is confirmed in the meeting. It's probably just another stadium-type game.

If those pokemon pics are indeed realtime, they are awesome. Even with the shitty shot quality you can tell its WAY beyond GC, especially with the lighting around the models.
