Hey. I've mentioned a couple times before i'm an assistant editor on my college's newspaper, and help run the editorials section. my editor in chief, however, wants each of us to branch out and write for another section at least once. so i've been asked by the Arts and Entertainment editor (well... i may have asked him ) if i could write an article on the Nintendo Media Summit we're getting so much information about. but i'm a bit confused. i know this site caters largely to Euro gamers, so i'm wondering if some facts may be different in the States. could someone help set me straight?
when did it begin and end?
where is it? (i'm seeing london on this site, and San Francisco everywhere else)
do you have release dates for US as well as EU on the site for all the games that have been dated, or do i need to look elsewhere?

It was in San Francisco on the 24th, London on the 25th. That link is for all of our coverage and should be able to help you see what news is applicable to Europe and to the US.

It’s a good time to be a Nintendo gamer. Though the Wii has held a strong lead in hardware sales since its launch, Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 fans have taken every opportunity to point out an insufficiency in Nintendo’s library.And while fanboys will be fanboys, it seems Nintendo is taking bold steps to quiet its naysayers.Enter the recent Nintendo Media Summit held in San Francisco on February 24th, and London on the 25th.The summit was much hyped, and Nintendo failed only to disappoint.In two days Nintendo has revealed to the world that it can still play with the big boys, and that 2010 may be the year long-time fans have been dying for.The summit began with a slew of new release dates to get you pumped up and ready for what the year has to offer.The long-awaited PC freeware-turned-WiiWare title “Cave Story” from developer Nicalis has finally been nailed down to a March 22nd release date.This was not this only major downloadable note of interest, however, as release dates were also given for hotly anticipated “Mega Man 10”, “Max and the Magic Marker”, “WarioWare D.I.Y”, two new entries in the “Art Style” series, “Rage of the Gladiator”, and two other PC games to get the WiiWare makeover, “And Yet It Moves” and “Super Meat Boy”, all for Nintendo’s WiiWare service and due out sometime this spring or summer.On the portable side, along with the announcement of a March 28th launch of the Nintendo DSi XL, we received word that the DSiWare service will be expanding with the release of “Photo Dojo”, “Metal Torrent”, “X-Scape”, and the DSi version of “WarioWare D.I.Y.”, along with the much applauded news of a Nintendo-published “Dragon Quest IX” for the DS (just because you can’t have too many portable RPGs), all of which will also be purchasable by summer 2010.Not content to merely wow audiences with downloadable news, Nintendo didn’t stop there, however, and began to release news of retail titles sure to get its Wii gamers salivating. While Capcom’s MMO series, “Monster Hunter”, has enjoyed tremendous popularity in Japan, it’s received little love on western shores.Thus, the announcement last year of a North American version of “Monster Hunter Tri” came as a bit of a shock.Since then, however, Capcom has been doing everything it can to make a statement with the title, beginning with the announcement of a bundle of the game with the new Classic Controller Pro, and now with the information that the game will feature WiiSpeak support and free online (friend codes not required).Other good news is that they will be releasing a demo of the game at Gamestop on March 8th, and will be including 500 free Nintendo Points with a pre-order. The game will launch on April 20th to hopefully a warm reception, so we’ll see more of this in the future.As for first-party news, Nintendo certainly succeeded in pleasing its fanbase.Three new Nintendo games have been given release dates, beginning with the sequel to one of the best Wii games yet released, “Super Mario Galaxy 2” on May 23rd, followed by “Sin and Punishment: Star Successor”, and “Metroid: Other M” landing in stores on June 7th and 27th respectively, all of which were shown off at the summit with plentiful helpings of mouthwatering screenshots and trailers.Tie all these things together with other newly released or previously announced titles debuting in 2010, such as the new “Legend of Zelda”, “Tatsunoko vs. Capcom: Ultimate All-Stars”, “Red Steel 2”,” No More Heroes: Desperate Struggle”, and a new “Prince of Persia”, and it seems Nintendo has set itself up to receive a healthy portion of any gamer’s 2010 budget. Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’m off to go get a job and some money and not be seen until 2011.

Good work! One thing though- The WarioWare on WiiWare is WarioWare D.I.Y. Showcase, and it's not on DSiWare, only on a cart, as WarioWare D.I.Y.
