Thanks to Jake for the news tip.

Even though Satoru Iwata’s GDC keynote was filled with great news for hardcore gamers, the Wii storage solution, VC Arcade, and even the announcement of a new Zelda is not the biggest news for today. According to Geoff Keighley, there is still one more surprise. As can be quoted by Mr. Keighley, the big surprise “comes later today.” For clarification purposes, know that this might not necessarily be related to Nintendo.
