    No Wii HD? No new colors? Maybe it’s the conspiracy theorist in me that says they intentionally tanked last years E3 so that this one would just seem infinitely better? I mean it is, but compared to last year that’s easy. I do like that they announced some big franchises that people have been waiting for. Mario Galaxy 2? Yes, please. Metroid: Other M? Thank you sir, can I have another?! Good E3. Maybe another announcement could be made by a third party still?

    What is up with the Wii Vitality Sensor?

    Do you see yourself using that or is this another device for the Wii Fit and Wii Sports group of Wii owners?
