Overall: Nintendo has pulled a great E3 out of nothing. Wii Music seems to be the highlight, but there is plenty more to be excited about, such as a debut for GTA on the DS and a new Wii Sports game. However, it looks like Nintendo might not have pleased their hardcore audience, with few games of key franchises being announced.
