He means hardcore games... Like Super Mario Kart. He didn't say those games would disappear just that they would be few and far between. I guess we won't know until about 2 years from now who's right and who's wrong. But I have to ask, during the conference did Nintendo spend more time on casual games or hardcore? What game did they spend the most time on? Super Mario Kart? Did they have Shigeru and others playing it for the crowd? Or was it some casual game that seems to be their new focus?

They spent a little more time on casual than hardcore games, but that is due to the fact that WiiFit took a great part of the show, is something totally new and has to be explained in more detail than a new announced Mario Kart game. Nintendo showed live demonstrations of Zelda PH and Metroid Prime 3 as well. 20 minutes of the show were solely dedicated to address the concerns of core gamers about the Wii and Nintendo showed enough games to satisfy the core gamers' need, they talked about 3rd party online games as well. 

Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.
