IGN Nintendo Minute

IGN posted a new "nintendo minute" on their site. In case you missed it here are the exact quotes from the story.
This week's question:What exactly is Nintendo's E3 2006 message and how will it convince graphics snobs that Revolution is the real deal?

Perrin Kaplan, vice president of marketing and corporate communications, Nintendo of America: Come to E3, Matt! Our mantra continues to be that it's the play, not just the looks, that matters. It's similar to the experience we had two years ago with Nintendo DS. Not everyone could easily grasp why two screens or a touch-screen were necessary. But once people started playing and interacting with the system ... Well, I think you see how it is going!

As far as Revolution, we'll have some great games to share on the show floor. We're going to get the controller in people's hands, step back and let them enjoy. We'll also have fun watching their facial expressions! Anyone can tell if a game looks good from across the room. But only by getting your hands on a Revolution and experiencing it will you understand how it's a completely different. You will love it!

As always, the hard-core gamers have a lot of ground to cover at E3, but they will "feel" the future of gaming in our booth. In addition to some incredible games for serious gamers, we're offering something new -- a bridge for them to involve all their friends and even involve their entire family, including mom, brother, sister, dad, even grandparents. The Revolution won't just provide a great experience, it will start a dialogue between friends and family member who may not always have a lot in common.

If one can cut through the clutter at E3, you'll then understand which company is offering something completely new, which one wants to get more people involved and which one you'll be most excited to play this year. We'll see you at the show!

Nothing terribly new but a decent build up for this years big show. We are one day closer to E3 gamers!
