Nintendo Has Already "Won" E3

MMGN.com writes: Despite the influx of announcements and trailers, E3 hasn't officially started yet. The expo that stops the gaming world once a year is set to kick off in the early hours of tomorrow morning, starting with the Microsoft press conference.

Yet anyone would have you think Nintendo has already "won" the war.

This article is strikingly realistic. Probably the best prediction thus far in my opinion.

EVILDEAD3601515d ago (Edited 1515d ago )

LMAO..not even close to a 'Win' yet for Nintendo.

I WANT to run into the stores this fall and buy a Wii-U if Nintendo makes the compelling case on Tuesday..but NO WAY have they done so thus far.

I love that they now have a hardcore controller..but are we REALLY going to pretend that showing a 360 controller on the Wii-U outdoes a true 360 controller? lol

The tablet streaming still is the seling point and if they show multiple tablets for one Wii-U then they are in a better place than last year's E3.

But, Micrsoft just threw out a curve ball with the smart glass streaming and control of Xbox Live from ANY IOS device (Iphone or tablet). Could be a game changer..but it's just a rumor at the moment.

The online presence will be better than Wii..but it still isn't Xbox Live caliber at the moment.

Sony may up the ante on EVERYONE with the Cloud partnership.

The article throws a Kinect jab, but no matter how you tease it..Kinect outdid Wii at Wii type games and that tablet still doesn't change the fact that the biggest casual Wii games from Sports to Dancing to Fitness etc can be experienced better with Kinect.

Games? Sure Nintendo has a staple of first party that will now have better graphics..But it wasn't mario or Zelda that boosted Nintendo to ridiculous gargantuan numbers..it was Wii Sports that we ALL had to have. Then we bought the rest of our fave first party Nintendo greats.

People are in for a suprise at the end of this gen..

Nothing shown on Wii-u will come close to budging
Halo 4 or the Bungie MMO on the 360

Nothing will come close to budging Last Guardian (if shown) or Last of Us on the PS3

Nothing on Wii will even scratch the surface of Black Ops 2 inevitable domination on the other big 2 and the fact that Crysis 3 wint even make the console.

Ninendo has got to come with their A game times 10 this time around..and I'm in the corner of hoping they do it.

Again Tuesday could blow us ALL away..just not today..good start but Monday the other two big boys have their shot..Nintendo better be ready.

Nintendo hasn't 'won' E3 just yet, but it has been the talk of the town as a result of that conference.

However, to say Wii U doesn't have a system seller yet on par with a Halo 4...are you kidding? NSMB Alone has outsold Halo 3 twice over, or Xbox' biggest seller MW2 twice over.

And NSMB is a game that is whispered as being a launch game for the console. So sorry, M$ nor Sony has a system pushing game of that magnitude. It may not be your cup of tea but there is no denying that.

Will look forward to what all 3 Console makers showcase this year.

'Nintendo hasn't 'won' E3 just yet, but it has been the talk of the town as a result of that conference.'

Of course we are all talking..it was the first information for the system and more than weve had for almost an entire year.

But, that video will mean nothing tomorrow when the onslaught of OFFICIAL E3 presentations come through.

'NSMB Alone has outsold Halo 3 twice over, or Xbox' biggest seller MW2 twice over'

First off you didn't read what I wrote..never do I say the Nintendo first party doesnt have huge games. I just said those games won't even scratch the surface on the lane that the 360 and Sony have with the titles I mentioned.

Secondly, you are talking about sales of the most popular franchise on a console that has will ultimately push 100 million as an install base.

Compare that to what Halo 3 did when it sold 8 million with an 11 million install base or what Call of Duty keeps doing today.

Just keeping it real, if they don't have that MUST-HAVE NOW game changing Wii Sports type title then Wii-U may be seem pretty human compared to last gen..

But, I never count these guys out..I said they better bring the A-game..

Here's where I'm coming from..they should that Zelda demo last year..it didn't stop the stocks for the company to fall 24 hours later. They were completely caught off-guard at how things have changed.

If Nintendo could read my mind..they would have a 3DTV enabled Mario Kart, Super Mario Galaxy 3, Super Smash Bros, Star Fox with amazing graphics that those franchises have NEVER seen... all at launch. THEN I will be the frst to say they may have won.

I loved my Wii when it came out..I used to scream from the rafters that Boom Blox was the funnest game on earth. But let's face it..Sony and Micrsoft have been watching these guys for years..they both know how to appeal to casual as well. Hence why you see Sony coming with Little Big Planet Karting and a Super Smash type game both in the same year.

Just calling it how I see it..no hate for Wii-U at all

DarkSniper1515d ago

This is pretentious and false news from the writer of this article. While he is subject to his own opinion, Dark Sniper fails to understand how one can have such a jaded and one sided view with the Sony E3 Extravaganza looming above Nintendo's head.

What we do know is that Sony will come out swinging with the best exclusives known to man across both PlayStation®3 and PlayStation®Vita platforms. Not to mention that Sony holds host to the true next generation title that is primed to steal the show, The Last of Us. With titles such as The Last Guardian and Quantic Dream's Beyond, Syphon Filter and many more, Dark Sniper is certain that the PlayStation brand will be able to take Nintendo's best shot.

Dark Sniper can name off the top of his head the same 5 exclusives that Nintendo will announce this week on their new platform. Nintendo's lack of delivering the element of surprise is one critical and major reason why they will not "win" E3. Especially with the forward momentum PlayStation has going into tonight's conference.

Have to agree unless MS or Sony announce the PS4 and 720 then I dont think no amount of exclusives can top the Wii U.

MariaHelFutura1515d ago (Edited 1515d ago )

I agree. BUT... If Sony/MS do show their next gen systems the Wii U could get pushed to the backburner for E3. Either way, I'm excited I'll be buying all of them at some point. I just wanta hear about them.

Patriots_Pride1515d ago

I am still not sold on the Wii but TBH after 6 years I am ready to move on to the next gen so if MS and Sony dont announce anything I will purchase the Wii U regardless can go one year with playing my PS3 and 360.

shackdaddy1515d ago

Don't want to piss people off here but for me, only the PS4 could take the hype from Nintendo. Honestly, if the 720 came out now, what would they have? A new Forza maybe, Halo 4 ported over from the 360, and more Kinect...

eagle211515d ago

I like how Iwata said tuesday is almost all WiiU games presentation...3DS will probably get a medley trailer, release dates and a big announcement but more 3DS info wednesday. Should be really interesting.

ronin4life1515d ago

I certainly hope they don't put the 3ds on the backburner and exclude major info of it from e3.
It needs to keep its momentum going.

-Alpha1515d ago (Edited 1515d ago )

As much as I'd like to say "never say never" it's pretty much a shoe in for Nintendo. I have little interest or hope that MS will do anything remotely refreshing, and I want to see Sony focusing on PlayStation All Stars, and The Last Guardian for PS3. I'm going to be really disappointed if I see nothing for TLG.

VITA will be an interesting focus with potential surprises, but who knows how big they will be.

Nintendo has the big 3: New hardware, a strong lineup for an existing, mega popular handheld (Paper Mario gameplay, Luigi's Mansion 2 gameplay), and a likely reveal of their next-gen lineup. It's a blockbuster E3 for Nintendo.

Oh yeah, and this article is really biased

Shok1515d ago

As much as I agree (it's new hardware), articles like this REALLY don't need to be posted on N4G of all places. Incoming shit storm.

MariaHelFutura1515d ago

Everything has the ability to start a sh!tstorm on N4G. That's what this place is.... one big digital sh!tstorm of emotions.

dubal-e1515d ago

yea man they definitely started summin
