<blockquote>â€œWe believe that the pipeline for games for experienced gamers is getting to be very robust and will continue to be so. I think strong games will have strong sales, and one of the things too is that these games can have really long tails. That itâ€™s not just a matter of looking at the first month of sales.â€
Youâ€™ll notice she didnâ€™t say core, but experienced. Cammie went on to say that â€œNintendo is working with third parties to help them understand that itâ€™s all about taking advantage of the unique interface and our hardware. I think as people are getting more comfortable with our technology, they are creating better and better games.â€
