What is this? Boring video game industry news? Why is this interesting?
It could be a hint of how the company plans to present its next console. It could be proof of how "hardcore" Project Cafe will be.
There are a few reasons why I'm posting this.
-The "interesting' lecture in blogging we had during my journalism class today got me in a blogging mood.
-You guys deserve content. It's becoming increasingly unlikely that the next big post I want to do will be out any time soon because of the final month of work I have. The story is still ongoing too but I really think that'll is going to be a good one.
-This post will be quick enough that I'll feel fine doing this now instead of actual work.
But it all honesty I think this news could end up mattering more than it seems. Nintendo tends to trot out these figureheads at their E3 (a big video game convention) press conferences so often times they act as the face for the direction the company is going in.
