Not a good presentation, but I know why.

Edit (I had this posted but GB F-uped and didn't add my whole paragraph explain what was going on)... 
  
The presentation for The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword is probably going to be one of the most talked portion of Nintendo's press conference. For anyone who didn't understand what was wrong it was probably all the lights and camera infrared screwing up the controls. Not to mention the load of wireless equipment in the surrounding area which adds to the factors. Like usual the 12 year old (or just plain internet ass) will bash them for the poor presentation.   Just remember when people normally play this, it won't be in a room filled with lights and cameras pointing at you.
 
Anyways, I'm curious to see how it works. I'll wait for GB to do their hands-on impressions.

He never used the IR pointer, i think it was something else interfering with the actual wireless connection with the wii.
