This comes from a recent interview with VideoGamer:
“[After being asked if he would like to put the games onto DSiWare] Good idea! I want to do that! If you play it, each type of job you can really enjoy. They’re not just a part of a side mission. Each game itself is of a really good quality, in fact.” – Goichi Suda
Would you guys purchase the job mini-games if they went to DSiWare?

‘No price cuts for the Wii in 2010’ says Nintendo
“Certainly on the Wii, we are now in the fifth year. We have had extraordinary success. The PS2 went on to sell more than 50 million. So that means there is plenty of opportunity to sell more Wiis. That being said, going into the fifth year, you usually don’t anticipate selling more than you did in the previous year. Right now, we continue to see demand at very strong levels. It’s tough to find a Wii now. If we hit 100 stores in the area, we would find Wiis in only 20 percent of them today. That tremendous strength we had in December really wiped the pipeline clean. Our pipeline, [and] the retailer pipeline. And so, with that kind of demand, it doesn’t suggest the need for any pricing actions.” – Cammie Dunaway
I don’t know how much to believe her on this, especially when Nintendo has been known to deny rumors just days before they turn out to be true. Anyone think they might be serious this time?

Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light, platforms unspecified
Posted 8 years ago by Brian in General Nintendo, News | 2 Comments
Today, Crystal Dynamics and Square Enix announced Lara Croft and the Guardian of Life. The press release, however, did not state which platforms the game is in development for. The only detail shared is that it “will be released via digital download in 2010.” As we know, Nintendo has their own downloadable services in WiiWare and DSiWare. I don’t really expect the game to land on DSiWare, but WiiWare seems like a more realistic possibility. Information about the title will be revealed soon, but we’ll have to see if Lara Croft and the Guardian of Life ends up on the Wii or DS.
