Nintendo Conference

What really excites me most about the DS is the stylus/touchscreen.

Effectively, the stylus can act as a mouse - it would certainly make it easier to do say, Real Time Strategy. Circle all the units and move to the point you click with your stylus.

Christ on a bike - can you imagine what would happen if they made a Starcraft game for DS? I'm not even into Starcraft, but the stylus (with voice recog) adds another level of control to gaming.

I'm one those people that believe innovation is made possible through new control methods.

I don't know. I've heard that controling games on PDAs with a stylus is complete wank.

Haha, that Reggie guy actually works at Nintendo. I thought he was just someone they hired.

Nintendo's executive vice president of sales and marketing Reginald Fils-Aime took center stage between two gargantuan-sized screens filled with the Nintendo logo.

He was a bit aggressive wasn't he?

And boasting about the fact it had two cartridge slots seemed a little OTT. He built up the hype/excitement well though (not hard with hundreds of excitable US fanboy journos in the room) so he did his job well.
