E3 2012 Nintendo's Show To Lose

Chris Buffa (Modojo): Next week's Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) in Los Angeles promises to be the biggest show yet, with a variety of publishers and developers pushing the year's coolest-looking games, and per usual, there are plenty of intriguing storylines. Will Sony and/or Microsoft showcase snippets of next generation footage? Will Valve yank the curtain (finally) off Half-Life 3? Can Activision dominate the first-person shooting category with Call of Duty: Black Ops 2? Journalists and finance gurus will debate these questions long after the show concludes, and for great reason, but for us, it's almost completely about Nintendo, and quite frankly, E3 is the company's event to lose.

The story is too old to be commented.

IMO One of the main reasons new hardware is exciting to see is because it offers a glimse into the next generation of games. The Wii U may be have a novelty controller and be slightly more powerful than current HD consoles but the games won't be 'next-gen' at least graphically.

" slightly more powerful than current HD consoles"

There is actually no basis it to support this... no reliable evidence, just the ASSUMPTIONS of fanboys
meanwhile I have this...

EA: "Wii U is not a transitional platform, it is a true next generation system."
THQ: “WiiU is just alot more powerful than current HD consoles it does 1080p very easy.”
Epic: “It will do things current HD consoles simply cant do its going to be a powerful box.”

Well I'm not making any assumptions either way until I seee for myself what it can do. Publisher and developer PR is hardly proof of it's capabilities so I'm not going to get my hopes up for a true 'next-gen' Nintendo machine until I see it for myself, hopefully at E3.

I think most gamers will wait til xb8/ps4 drops before buying another system.. Nintendo & 3rd party will need to wow the crowds & provide significant support for 2 straight generations in order to gain the respect it once had.. Wii U is cool but i dont think its cool enough for people to run out & buy it instead of waiting on the competition
