Nintendo: you've seen all our 2008 games

Cammie Dunaway tries the hard sell.

Nintendo of America almost-boss Cammie Dunaway has said we have seen "the extent" of what the company is offering this Christmas.

Dunaway was defending the lack of core Wii games shown at the E3 press conference last week - something that Nintendo overlord Satoru Iwata apologised for recently.

"Absolutely the hardcore gamer crowd is critically important to us," Cammie Dunaway told Wired. "But we announce what we have that's ready to share.

"And so we don't talk about stuff until we've got a great degree of confidence that we're close enough to release it. So we announce what we have. And we're really proud of what we have coming in to this holiday season.

"You have seen the extent of Nintendo's 2008 holiday line-up," she added.

Animal Crossing, Wii Music, Wario Land: Shake It, Super Mario Sluggers and Call of Duty were all mentioned by Dunaway as games for the core audience this year.
