MADE A BOLD PREDICTION ABOUT HOWMARIO WAS GOING TO SELL BIGGER

THAN ONE OF THE CALL OF DUTY'S,AND IT WENT HEADLINES ALL OVER

THE INTERNET, "REGGIE'S CRAZY!"BUT END OF THE DAY, TALE OF THE

TAPE, I THINK THAT GAME DID ENDUP OUTSELLING CALL OF DUTY,

THAT YEAR, RIGHT?

>> ABSOLUTELY. AND THE REASON ICOULD MAKE THAT STATEMENT, IS,

IT'S ALL ABOUT INSTALL BASE, ANDIT'S ALL ABOUT HAVING A

TOP-SHELF GAME THAT SELLS OVER ALONG PERIOD OF TIME.

AND YOU KNOW, THE FACT OF THEMATTER IS,

GAMES LIKE SUPER MARIO 3D WORLD,

GAMES LIKE MARIO KART ON WII U,GAMES LIKE SMASH BROS. ON WII U,

THEY'RE GOING TO HAVE AFANTASTIC SALES CURVE OVER TIME,

AND I CAN GUARANTEE THAT THOSEGAMES - IN THIS GENERATION THAT

>> YEAH.

>> AND THE BIG CHALLENGE THEREWAS, "REGGIE, WHAT'S HAPPENING

WITH YOUR 3DS BUSINESS, IT'SGONNA GET HAMMERED BY

SMARTPHONES AND TABLETS..." LOOKAT WHERE WE ARE TODAY.

LAST TWELVE MONTHS, NINTENDO 3DSIS A BILLION DOLLAR BUSINESS

JUST HERE IN THE UNITED STATES.

SOFTWARE SALES ARE UPTWENTY-TWO PERCENT.

LAST FIVE MONTHS IN A ROW THENUMBER ONE SELLING SYSTEM HAS

BEEN NINTENDO 3DS. WHY? WE HAVEA GREAT LINE-UP OF SOFTWARE.

SOFTWARE SELLS HARDWARE.

>> SO IS NINTENDO WII U GOING TOBE A NUMBER ONE SELLING SYSTEM

IN 2014?

>> YOU KNOW, I CERTAINLY HOPESO. AND AS I LOOK AT OUR

SOFTWARE LINE-UP, I'M FEELINGPRETTY GOOD.

>> YOU THINK YOU'RE GOING TO BEABLE TO PULL AHEAD OF XBOX AND

PLAYSTATION? IT'S GONNA HAPPENNEXT YEAR REGGIE?

>> YOU KNOW, WE'RE GOING TO FINDOUT. BUT WHAT I'M CONFIDENT

ABOUT IS THAT WE'VE GOT STRONGSOFTWARE THAT WE'VE ALREADY

ANNOUNCED, WE'VE GOT OUROTHER STRONG SOFTWARE IN

DEVELOPMENT, AND IN THE END, WEEXECUTE WITH GREAT SOFTWARE,

WE'RE GONNA DRIVE THE INSTALLBASE, WE'RE GOING TO CREATE AN

ENVIRONMENT FOR THIRD PARTYPUBLISHERS TO JUMP IN WITH THEIR

BEST CONTENT... THAT'S WHAT WE'RE LOOKING TO DO.

>> BUT YOU NEED TO CONVINCE MORETHIRD PARTIES TO MAKE GREAT

PLAYING GAMES ON THE WII U.

>> YOU'RE GOING TO HELP ME DOTHAT, RIGHT?

>> YEAH, YEAH.

>> LOOK, IN THE END -

>> IT'S YOUR SALES PITCH,THEY'RE WATCHING RIGHT NOW.

>> WHAT MOTIVATES A THIRD PARTYPUBLISHER IS A LARGE INSTALL

BASE, A DIVERSE INSTALL BASE,

AND AN OPPORTUNITY TO DRIVESALES.

SO IT'S NINTENDO'SRESPONSIBILITY TO DRIVE THAT

INSTALL BASE, AND THAT'S WHATWE'RE LOOKING TO DO, WITH ALL

OF OUR BEST FRANCHISES.

>> THE COMPETITION HAS BEENFIERCE ON GT ACADEMY AND THE

CONTESTANTS HAVE ONLY BEEN HEREAT SILVERSTONE FOR A FEW DAYS.

LAST WEEK THE GAMERSDEMONSTRATED SPEED, STRENGTH AND

SOUL AS THEY ENDURED A DEMANDINGMILITARY STYLE OBSTACLE COURSE

THE MOST SEASONED CREW.

IN THIS WEEK'S EPISODE, GAMERSFEEL THE

OFF-ROAD RUSH, PUT THEIRBRAKING SKILLS TO THE TEST, AND

FACE OFF IN THE HIGH SPEEDQUADRATHALON CHALLENGE.

ONLY 11 REMAIN IN THE QUEST TOBECOME

THE NEXT NISMO CHAMPION.

AT 10:30, ONLY ON SPIKE.

>> AFTER THE BREAK, WE FIND OUTIF SONY HAS THE KNACK TO WIN

THIS GENERATION WITH OUR PS4LAUNCH REVIEW ROUNDUP,

AND WE CHECK OUT AN EXCLUSIVELEVEL FROM

DONKEY KONG COUNTRY: TROPICALFREEZE.

>> ALRIGHT GUYS, WE'RE BACK HEREON GT.TV WITH BILL TRINEN FROM

THE TREEHOUSE, AND TONIGHT BILLYOU'VE GOT MARIO AND ZELDA

LAUNCHING, BUT 2014 IS GOING TOBE A BIG YEAR FOR NINTENDO, AS

REGGIE SAID, AND WE GOT SOME NEWSTUFF ON DONKEY KONG, WHICH IS

COMING OUT IN EARLY 2014, RIGHT?

>> THAT'S CORRECT. DONKEY KONGCOUNTRY: TROPICAL FREEZE

IS GOING TO BE LAUNCHING IN

FEBRUARY, SO IT'LL BE THE FIRSTBIG GAME FOR WII U

IN THE NEW YEAR.

AND WHAT WE'RE SHOWING OFFTODAY, IS A NEW LEVEL CALLED

"JELLY JAMBOREE."

>> OKAY

>> AND AS YOU CAN SEE, IT'S ALOT OF FUN, PRETTY MUCH THE

ENTIRE LEVEL IS COMPRISED OFTHESE LITTLE JELLY BLOBS THAT

BOUNCE YOU UP. AND YOU CAN SEETHAT NOT ONLY ARE YOUR

CHARACTERS BOUNCING OFF OFTHESE, BUT THE ENEMY CHARACTERS

ARE ENJOYING THEMSELVES ASTHEY'RE BOUNCING OFF OF THEM AS

WELL, AND THEY'RE KIND OFFLIPPING IN THE AIR, THE

PENGUINS - YOU KNOW, THEY'VE GOTTHOSE BIG SMILES ON THEIR FACES

RIGHT BEFORE YOU STOMP ONTHEIR HEADS.

>> AND SIMILAR TO SUPER MARIO 3DWORLD, I LOVE KIND OF THE

FIDELITY OF THE ANIMATION ANDTHE ART,

IT LOOKS ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL.

AND DONKEY KONG COUNTRY HASALWAYS SORT OF

DEFINED THIS REALLY COOL 3D LOOKAND NOW THEY'VE CARRIED IT ON TO

ALL THESE AMAZING LEVELS.

SO THIS IS KIND OF MID-POINT INTHE GAME?

WHAT ARE WE SEEING HERE?

>> THIS IS ONE OF THE LATERLEVELS. THE GAME IS SORT OF MADE

UP OF SIX ISLANDS AND YOU'REISLAND HOPPING

FROM ISLAND TO ISLAND.

AND THE STORYLINE IS THAT THESESNOWMADS, WHO ARE

THESE INVADERS FROM THE NORTH,HAVE COME, TAKEN OVER DONKEY

KONG ISLAND, KICKED DONKEY KONGAND HIS FRIENDS OFF, AND THEY'VE

FROZEN THE ISLAND. AND SO DONKEYKONG AND DIDDY KONG AND WHO

WE'RE SHOWING TODAY IS DIXIEKONG, ARE ON THEIR JOURNEY BACK

TO THEIR ISLAND TO TRY TO TAKEIT BACK FROM THE SNOWMADS.

>> THE CHARACTERS, THEYOBVIOUSLY, YOU KNOW, THEY'RE IN

THE LEVEL TOGETHER AND THEY CANPLAY TOGETHER, BUT TONIGHT,

YOU'RE SHOWING OFF SOMETHINGNEW, WHICH IS A "KONG-POW."

>> THAT'S RIGHT. THE KONG-POW,WHEN YOU'RE PLAYING TWO PLAYER,

WHAT YOU NEED TO DO IS YOU NEEDTO COLLECT 100 BANANAS AND THAT

FILLS UP YOUR METER AND GIVESYOU THE ABILITY TO DO THIS

KONG-POW AND THEN THE TWOPLAYERS HAVE TO TIME THEIR

C-BUTTON PRESS TOGETHER AT THESAME TIME IN ORDER TO GET THIS

NEW ABILITY TO WORK. AND THENWHAT THAT DOES IS, IT DESTROYS

ALL THE ENEMIES ON THE SCREENAND TRANSFORMS THEM INTO ITEMS

THAT YOU CAN PICK UP. AND THEITEMS YOU PICK UP DEPEND ON

WHICH BUDDY CHARACTER YOU'REUSING. SO IN DIXIE KONG'S CASE,

IT TRANSFORMS THEM INTO THESEGOLDEN HEARTS THAT YOU CAN PICK

UP, AND EACH GOLDEN HEART WILLGIVE YOU AN EXTRA HIT BEFORE IT

WOULD AND THEN TURN INTO A REDHEART.

SO IT'S VERY HANDY AND

OBVIOUSLY VERY POWERFUL, BUTALSO A LITTLE CHALLENGING

TO PULL OFF BECAUSE YOU'VE GOTTO TIME IT JUST RIGHT.

>> SO IF YOU'RE PLAYING BYYOURSELF, ARE YOU GOING TO HAVE

ANY WAY TO DO KONG-POWS?

>> THAT IS A VERY GOOD QUESTION;YOU WILL. OF COURSE, THE GAME

THE WAY IT'S DESIGNED, THEPRIMARY PLAYER IS ALWAYS DONKEY

KONG. WHEN YOU'RE PLAYINGMULTIPLAYER, A SECONDARY

PLAYER CAN PLAY AS ONE OF THEBUDDY CHARACTERS, BUT WHEN

YOU'RE PLAYING SINGLE PLAYERTHEN YOU'RE IN CONTROL OF BOTH.

WHAT'S FUN ABOUT THE CO-OP IS,THAT YOU ARE ABLE, WHEN YOU'VE

GOT THE TWO CHARACTERS SPLIT UP,THE FIRST PLAYER CAN GRAB THE

OTHER CHARACTER, THE OTHERCHARACTER CAN JUMP ON DONKEY

KONG'S BACK, AND THEN PLAYER ONECAN TAKE CONTROL.

SO, IT IS A VERY CHALLENGINGPLATFORMER,

SO HAVING THAT ABILITY TO BOTH BE

COOPERATIVE BUT ALSO BUDDY UP ISREALLY NICE.

>> LAST WEEK MARKED THE RELEASEOF THE PLAYSTATION 4.

HERE'S OUR REVIEW ROUND UP OFTHE BIGGEST LAUNCH TITLES.

>> TAKING ON THE MANTLE OF ASHADOW MARSHAL IN KILLZONE

SHADOW FALL MAKES FOR A VERYDIFFERENT KILLZONE.

THE MULTI-FUNCTIONAL OWL DROID,SLO-MO SHOOTING, AND EVEN THE

FLEXIBILITY OF YOUR WEAPONS GIVETHE GAME A FLUID FEEL.

>> MULTIPLAYER COMES BACKSTRONG, WITH THE CONSTANTLY

CHANGING OBJECTIVES OF WARZONEMODE CREATING DYNAMIC AND

SATISFYING MATCHES.

THROW IN SOME SUBTLE NEXT-GENSWAGGER AND

SHADOW FALL FEELS LIKE AFANTASTIC SHOOTER, AND A GREAT

LAUNCH TITLE.

WE SCORE KILLZONE SHADOW FALL AN8.8.

>> HE CAN GROW TO A MASSIVE SIZEBY ABSORBING SCADS OF TINY

RELICS, BUT HE'LL ALSOUNEXPECTEDLY POP LIKE A PINATA

AS YOU PUNCH YOUR WAY THROUGHTHE SAME CARTOONISH BADDIES OVER

AND OVER AGAIN.

>> YOU'LL BEG FOR KNACK TO DOSOMETHING - ANYTHING - TO

SURPRISE YOU, BUT WHETHER YOU'REFIVE OR TWENTY-FIVE, KNACK IS

BORING THROUGHOUT ITSDRAGGED OUT TEN HOUR DURATION.

>>GAME: SORRY.

KNACK EARNS A 5.0.

>> RESOGUN STARS A TINY BUTIMMENSELY DESTRUCTIVE SPACESHIP

BLASTING THROUGH WAVES OFENEMIES TO ACCOMPLISH ONE

OVERRIDING DIRECTIVE: "SAVE THELAST HUMANS."

YOU'LL ACCOMPLISH YOUR MISSIONBY SPRAYING BULLETS,

BUSTING OUT BOMBS, AND

MASTERING A SKILL-REWARDINGBOOST TECHNIQUE.

>> THERE ARE ONLY A FEW STAGES,BUT YOU'LL FIND YOURSELF COMING

BACK AGAIN AND AGAIN TO UP YOURGAME AND WATCH CONQUERED ALIEN

LANDSCAPES BLOWN APART IN YOURWAKE.

WE GIVE RESOGUN AN 8.1.

>> SEE THE EXCLUSIVE WORLDPREMIER TRAILER FOR

THE WITCHER 3 LIVE AT VGX,

SATURDAY, DECEMBER 7TH AT VGXLIVE.COM.

>> WILL MICROSOFT RYSE TO THEOCCASION? FIND OUT AFTER THE

BREAK IN OUR XBOX ONE REVIEWROUNDUP

AND STAY TUNED FOR EVEN

MORE EXCLUSIVE CONTENT FROM THENEXT DONKEY KONG COUNTRY.

>> ALRIGHT GUYS, WE'RE BACK HEREON GTTV WITH BILL TRINEN. BILL,

WE HAVE EVEN MORE DONKEY KONGGOODNESS FOR THE FANS TONIGHT,

ANOTHER LEVEL WHICH PLACES THEFREEZE THEME. WE'RE GETTING A

LITTLE CLOSER TO HOME; IT'S ALITTLE CHILLIER NOW?

>> THAT'S CORRECT. THIS IS THEFIRST LEVEL BACK ON DK ISLAND,

IT'S CALLED "HOMECOMINGHIJINKS," AND WHAT'S REALLY FUN

ABOUT THIS LEVEL IS OBVIOUSLYIT'S ALL COMPLETELY FROZEN.

YOU'LL SEE LITTLE HINTS THATMAYBE WILL REMIND YOU A BIT OF

THE FIRST LEVEL FROM DONKEY KONGCOUNTRY RETURNS ON WII, BUT THIS

IS A TOTALLY NEW LEVEL, ALL THELEVELS ON DONKEY KONG ISLAND ARE

DIFFERENT THIS TIME, AND THEY'REACTUALLY QUITE CHALLENGING.

I WAS TRYING TO PLAY THROUGHTHIS EARLIER AND HAVING SOME

STRUGGLES-

>> EVEN YOU!

>> EVEN ME, EVEN ME.

>> MASTER PLAYER BILL TRINEN.

>> WHAT'S REALLY FUN IS THE WAYTHAT THE ICE HAS FROZEN ELEMENTS

IN THE ENVIRONMENT AND THEN YOUAS A PLAYER AS YOU'RE JUMPING ON

THESE PLATFORMS AND CAUSING THEICE TO SORT OF CRACK AND BREAK,

AND THEN PLATFORMS WILL FALLOFF, ENTIRE ELEMENTS OF THE

ENVIRONMENT WILL SORT OF STARTTO COLLAPSE. OF COURSE, DONKEY

KONG, IT'S REALLY ABOUT THEPRECISION OF YOUR PLATFORMING

ABILITIES, AND SO TRYING TO FINDTHOSE RIGHT MOMENTS TO HIT THOSE

PLATFORMS, MAKE THOSE JUMPS ANDTHEN SORT OF LAUNCH OUT OF

CANNONS WHEN YOU'RE FIRINGTHROUGH THE LEVEL IS REALLY

WHERE YOU START TO GET A LOT OFTHE CHALLENGE IN THIS LEVEL.

>> PEOPLE OBVIOUSLY REMEMBER THEBARRELS, YOU KNOW, THE MINE

CARTS, THINGS LIKE THAT... WHATARE SOME OF THE COOL WAYS YOU'RE

GOING TO BE ABLE TO INTERACT

WITH THE ENVIRONMENT IN THISGAME?

>> THERE ARE A LOT OF DIFFERENTTHINGS

THAT THEY'VE DONE THISTIME.

ONE IN PARTICULAR, THEY'VEADDED A PLUCKING ABILITY; YOU'RE

ABLE TO PULL THESE THINGS OUT OFTHE GROUND THAT WILL TRIGGER

DIFFERENT ELEMENTS OF THEENVIRONMENT TO THEN START

SHIFTING OR MOVING.

THE OTHER THING THAT THEY'VEADDED IS

THEY'VE KIND OF ENHANCED YOURABILITY TO PICK UP AND THROW

OBJECTS AND CARRY OBJECTSAROUND, AND SO THAT PLAYS SORT

OF A BIG PART IN TERMS OF WHATOBJECTS YOU'RE GRABBING AND HOW

YOU USE THOSE TO INTERACT WITHTHE DIFFERENT ENEMIES.

BUT ONE OF THE BIGGEST CHANGESWE'VE SEEN WITH THE GAME IS WHAT

THEY'RE DOING WITH SOME OF THECAMERA WORK, PARTICULARLY EARLY

ON IN THE GAME, WHERE INSTEAD OFBEING JUST THAT STRAIGHT

SIDESCROLLING LEVEL, YOU'REGETTING THE CAMERA FLYING IN,

AND YOU'RE GETTING THESE WORLDSFROM THESE DIFFERENT ANGLES, AND

THAT REALLY ALLOWS THEM TO DOSOME DIFFERENT THINGS,

PARTICULARLY ON THE MINE CARTLEVELS, FROM A DEPTH AND

STRATEGY STANDPOINT, THAT THEYHADN'T BEEN ABLE TO DO WHEN IT

WAS JUST A STRAIGHTSIDESCROLLER.

>> WELL EVEN LIKE THE INTRO TOTHIS LEVEL, IT'S JUST COOL WHEN

THE CAMERA'S LIKE SWEEPINGAROUND, IT'S LIKE DONKEY KONG IN

A WAY YOU HAVEN'T SEEN BEFORE.

>> EXACTLY. AND YOU KNOW, RETROSTUDIOS HAS REALLY DONE AN

AMAZING JOB OF NOT ONLY BRINGINGTHEIR TECHNICAL CAPABILITIES AND

CREATING A STRONG PLATFORMERLIKE DONKEY KONG COUNTRY, BUT

THEY'VE ALSO FOUND THESE NEWWAYS TO REALLY HELP GIVE YOU A

NEW VIEW INTO THE DONKEY KONGWORLD. IT'S A LOT OF FUN.

>> WELL THAT'S FANTASTIC AND WEARE EXCITED THAT'S GOING TO KICK

OFF 2014 FOR NINTENDO INFEBRUARY.

SO LOTS OF COOL STUFF IN THEGAME,

AND I'M SURE MORE TO REVEALABOUT ALL THINGS

DONKEY KONG: TROPICAL FREEZE.

>> THAT'S RIGHT.

>> ALL RIGHT, THANKS BILL.

>> THANK YOU.

>> TONIGHT WE CELEBRATE THERELEASE OF THE XBOX ONE.

HEAR WHAT WE THOUGHT OF THELAUNCH GAMES

IN THIS REVIEW ROUND UP.

>> WITH MORE COMBO WEAPONS ANDEVEN LARGER HOARDS OF ENEMIES,

THERE'S A LOT TO PLAY WITH INTHIS BLOODY SAND BOX.

CREATING KILLING IMPLEMENTS ONTHE FLY IS FUN AND EASY,

AND THE ADDITION OFVEHICLES HELPS YOU PLOW YOUR WAY

THROUGH A WIDE OPEN WORLD FULLOF SQUISHY DEAD GUYS.

>> GAME: FOUND THIS OUT THERE.IT MIGHT BE USEFUL.

>> DEAD RISING 3 KEEPS THESERIES SENSE OF HUMOR ALIVE,

SHAMBLING AWAY WITH AN 8.0 OUTOF 10.

>> THE BLOODY SPECTACLE OF WARAND GLADIATORIAL COMBAT ARE

THRILLING TO BEHOLD BUT NEXT GENGAMING WASN'T BUILT IN A DAY.

CAPABLE LEGIONARY COMBAT CONVEYSTHE MIGHT OF ROME BUT IT'S ALSO

HIGHLY REPETITIVE. WHEN THESHOCK AND AWE WEARS OFF, HURLING

JAVELINS AND COMMANDING YOURTROOPS

IS DISAPPOINTINGLY CLUMSY.

VICIOUS SLO-MO EXECUTIONS ARETHE BRUTAL HIGHLIGHT.

ARE YOU NOT ENTERTAINED?

WE GIVE RYSE A 7.0 OUT OF 10.

>> IF YOU ONLY GET ONE GAME FORYOUR NEW XBOX ONE, DON'T MAKE IT

THIS ONE. THIS SELF-AWAREWEAPONIZED MOTORCYCLE DRAGS

PLAYERS ALONG FOR AN EXTREMELYBUMPY RIDE.

>> GAME: YOU CRACK ME UP.

>> WITH SLOPPY GAMEPLAY AND ANIFFY SENSE OF HUMOR THIS

BORDERLINE BUSTED BIKE IS BETTERLEFT IN THE GARAGE.

>> SHALL WE LIVE THE EXTREMEDREAM TOGETHER?

>> LOCOCYCLE DRIVES OFF WITH A4.2 OUT OF 10.

>> THIS DECEMBER, JIM LEE ANDBRIAN AZZARELLO'S VISION OF

SUPERMAN FOR TOMORROW IS SOARINGINTO FIGURE FORM.

DC COMIC'S MAN OF STEEL ISRECEIVING THE

INSIGHT INTO THE FUTURE OF THECOMPANY

AND WHAT SURPRISES MIGHT AWAITUS IN 2014.

>> WE'RE WORKING ON IT, AND IT'SCOMING.

>> ALRIGHT, WE'RE BACK HERE ONGTTV WITH REGGIE FROM NINTENDO.

SO THIS WAS SUPPOSED TO BEXBOX'S BIG NIGHT BUT YOU ARE

SPOILING THE PARTY WITH ALL THISGREAT NINTENDO CONTENT FOR THE

HOLIDAYS. SO THIS IS THE SYSTEMTO BUY, RIGHT?

>> ALWAYS THE SYSTEM TO BUY, THEONLY PLACE WHERE YOU CAN GET

ALL OF THAT GREAT EXCLUSIVENINTENDO CONTENT...

IT'S GOTTA BE ON THE WII U.

>> WELL LET'S TALK ABOUT THE WIIU AS A SYSTEM AND KIND OF WHERE

THAT'S GOING TO GO, MOVINGFORWARD.

ONE THING I WANTED TO ASK YOUABOUT WAS THIS NFC TECHNOLOGY

THAT WAS TALKED ABOUT

AT THE LAUNCH... WE REALLY HAVESEEN VERY LITTLE USAGE OF IT.

>> WE SHOWED A LITTLE BIT WITHPOKEMON RUMBLE U, RIGHT, AND

THERE'S A LOT MORE THAT WE'REWORKING ON. WHEN WE'RE READY TO

TALK ABOUT IT, WE'LL SHOW ITSPECIFICALLY WITHIN A GAME, AND-

>> WILL THERE BE A GAME THOUGH

THAT WILL REALLY, LIKE, DRIVETHAT?

>> SO WHEN WE WERE TALKING ABOUTTHE DESIGN FOR WII U AND THE

DECISION WAS MADE TO HAVE THATNFC CHIP IN THERE, THE

COMMITMENT WAS MADE THAT WE HADTO SHOW SOMETHING THAT WOULD

SHOW IT OFF.

SO YEAH, WE'RE WORKING ON IT ANDIT'S COMING.

>> NOW WHEN YOU LOOK AT NINTENDOAS, YOU KNOW, AS A COMPANY, AND

WHERE YOU GUYS WANT TO GO LONGERTERM, THERE'S BEEN LOTS OF NEWS

THE PAST FEW WEEKS ABOUT, YOUKNOW, IS NINTENDO EVER GOING TO

MOVE ITS CONTENT TO MOBILEDEVICES, AND THAT'S SOMETHING

THAT IS INCREASINGLY SORT OF ACONVERSATION; IS THAT EVER GOING

TO HAPPEN? IS IT EVEN POSSIBLETO CONTEMPLATE THAT?

>> THE FACT OF THE MATTER IS, WECREATE SYSTEMS THAT HAVE BUTTONS

THAT YOU INTERACT WITH, IN AVARIETY OF DIFFERENT WAYS,

BECAUSE IT MAKES FOR A BETTERGAMEPLAY EXPERIENCE.

>> RIGHT, RIGHT.

>> THAT'S THE PRIMARY REASON WHYFOR US THIS IS NOT A PROPOSITION

THAT MAKES A LOT OF SENSE. NOW,SEPARATELY WE COULD TALK ABOUT

ALL OF THE FINANCIAL AND PROFITREASONS WHY NOT TO DO THAT, BUT

FOR THE PLAYER, IN THE END, IT'SJUST NOT AS GOOD AN EXPERIENCE.

>> ARE YOU GOING TO DO ANYTHINGDIFFERENTLY NEXT YEAR?

WE'VE BEEN THROUGH 2013, WE'RECOMING TO THE END OF THE YEAR -

HOW'S NINTENDO GOING TO BEDIFFERENT NEXT YEAR?

>> WELL, THE WAY WE'RE GOING TOBE DIFFERENT IS, WE'RE GOING TO

CERTAINLY HAVE A STEADIER PACEOF GAMES,

BOTH FOR WII U AND FOR 3DS.

THE MARKETING ACTIVITY IS GOINGTO BE CONSTANT THROUGHOUT

THE ENTIRE YEAR. YOU TEASE THAT,BOY, THE FIRST HALF WAS A LITTLE

QUIET, AND YOU KNOW, YOU LOOKBACK AND IT WAS. WE'RE NOT GOING

TO BE MAKING THAT SAME MISTAKEIN 2014, SO THE PACE, THE

ONGOING ACTIVITY, TOUCHING THECONSUMER AND MESSAGING WHAT

WE'RE ALL ABOUT -

THAT'S GOING TO BE A BIGDIFFERENCE NEXT YEAR.

>> YOU KNOW REGGIE, OVER THEYEARS WE'VE PLAYED A LOT OF

GAMES TOGETHER, WE KIND OF GOTOUT OF THAT TREND, I DON'T KNOW

WHAT HAPPENED, NO SOFTWARE FORTHE PLATFORMS, OR SOMETHING...

>> WHAT I HEARD, I WANTED TOPLAY "NAME THAT FACE" AND YOU

SAID "ABSOLUTELY NOT," YOU'RENOT MAKING FACES, IT COULD BE

USED AGAINST YOU... I WAS INTO IT.

>> WELL WE HAVE SOMETHING

BETTER, BECAUSE WE'RE HERE INTHE NINTENDO WORLD STORE AND I

WENT SHOPPING EARLIER AND PICKEDUP A WHOLE BAG OF NINTENDO
