Nintendo celebrates E3 by releasing Major League Eating for WiiWare

Distancing itself from Microsoft's strategy of releasing anticipated online content (and, erm, Coffee Time Crosswords) during E3 2008, Nintendo has opted instead to give us Major League Eating: The Game for this week's WiiWare title. We're letting the press release speak for itself: "This isn't...
