It seems like A TON of people are mad or upset as to what Nintendo has shown at the GDC this far. As of right now their keynote is over and we still do not know the price of the system, release date, and we only got 2 new games announced. "Wii prove our promise" sounded like there was going to be at least a little more during this keynote. Let us know what you think in the comment section now! ANYONE can comment so let us know if you yourself are mad, dissappointed, ashamed of what Nintendo discussed today. I really look forward to your comments.
