Reggie: "So N'Gai, how do I answer the question, 'Will there be no drought,' and 'How will we make sure that there are fantastic titles for Wii?' The answer is Zelda, Metroid and Mario. Which is a pretty darn good lineup."
N'Gai: "So are you willing to make a 'Read my lips' pledge right here?"
Reggie: "I thought I just did."
N'Gai: "All right. I'll be checking in with you when these titles actually ship."
Reggie reportedly then chuckled, mumbling what we can only image as a trailed-off "Exactly." Has Fils-Aime committed to release schedules before only to later have his hands tied with with either strategic and/or development delays? Plenty of times. The most recent Zelda: Twilight Princess quickly comes to mind. And the justification that Nintendo only releases games when they are "really good" is a bit tired. At some point Nintendo Project Management has to take responsibility for something. That is assuming they use project management.
