games for everyone
OMGZ TEH FINAL SECRET!!1 Ubisoft seems to be having some fun in this closing segment of its "Games For Everyone" trailer -- perhaps at the expense of the ardent fanboy -- by featuring a Pinocchio-esque hologram manipulated by Wiimotes (or controllers that certainly imply "Wii Remote"). Despite 'the final secret' being shot down just before Wii's launch, hope remains and memories linger, if merely in the form of a spoofing advertisement that plays on Miyamoto's cryptic vision: "I've always thought that games would eventually break free of the confines of a TV screen to fill an entire room. But I would rather not say anything more about that."

The full Games For Everyone trailer (embedded below) reveals a series of whimsical scenes, which are, quite obviously, not to be taken literally. Jam Sessions won't actually make you a rock god with creation powers; just like My Life Coach won't spawn a breathing stick figure. And, no, Horsez won't come bundled with a four-legged subway companion. But what of this final scene that isn't directly tied to a specific product? Is it a symbolic representation of the Games For Everyone brand -- or a glimpse at the future? Either way, it may help to get the buzz going; at least, enough to give Ubisoft the boost it needs to ensure that this relatively late venture into the cluttered casual games market is not in vain.
