TV's Conan O'Brien made the short journey to the Electronic Entertainment Expo a few weeks ago to see the big new Sony PlayStation 4 and Microsoft Xbox One titles firsthand. Conan's not much of a gamer, but he's learning about the industry a bit at a time. He's easily distracted though as this video bit from Conan demonstrates. Stick around to the end to see Conan check out Mario Kart 8 at the Nintendo booth and meet the voice of Mario, Luigi, Wario, and other famous Nintendo characters, Charles Martinet. Conan clearly cannot figure out what to make of Martinet as the actor rapid fires his way through his most famous characters. There's some "ha ha, nerds" humor in there as Conan is bemused by the experience and of course he has booth babes on the brain, but it's nice to see him venture into the expo without knowing much about the new consoles and still seemingly enjoy himself and find the potential to entertain.
In an unaired bit, Conan had the chance to meet Nintendo's Shigeru Miyamoto. While Conan puts on a good show about his cluelessness when it comes to video games, he knows of Miyamoto and understands why the famous developer is so important to the industry. Watch as Conan quizzes him about Mario's character design.
