I think you're missing the point of the article I posted... Read it again. He is talking about Nintendo and says Nintendo games like SSBB, MP:3, and SMG will be few and far between from here on in. He said that after going to Nintendo's Gamer's Day. The only way he would have been proven wrong is if Nintendo announced 3-4 hardcore titles of their own for the Wii. The only one people here mentioned was Super Mario Kart... So we still don't know yet who was right and who's wrong... Maybe the Tokyo Game Show will be where it's decided... If they announce a bunch of hard core titles I'll admit they the article was wrong.
Ah, okay, so only 3-4 new announced titles can show that Nintendo is not abandoning the core gamer market.
What about Microsoft? Which new games did they announce and show? Viva Pinata party animals and Scene it? How many new hardcore games did they announce? Aren't you worried that Microsoft is abandoning the hardcore market for the casuals?
