One chagrin that many people have with console releases is that often there are only a few “release” titles to go along with the new system. Despite consoles being more expensive and having beefier hardware, you only get a handful of titles at most to try out. And if half of those few titles are sports games and you aren't in to sports, well too bad. Nintendo is aware of that, though, and has done something about it.
As such, with the release of “Wii”, Nintendo will have among other things 27 release titles. That is, they are at least demoing 27 titles at E3. It may get confusing reading that press release with answers only, but it has a bunch of interesting tidbits. If these remain true and we do see several dozen release titles, the late coming of the “Wii” may be offset by its larger initial library. Time will tell.
