Hopefully some Smash Bros Gameplay?
rks89  +   1064d ago
I can see that at next years E3 for sure.

Now? Too early. Maybe a teaser but..... nah. lol.
gatormatt80  +   1064d ago
For all that talking he sure didn't show us much, where's all this information Reggie keeps talking about. No price announcement, not very many games... No thanks Nintendo, think I'll pass on this one.

@gatormatt80 I agree. Reggie was all "its about the games this" and "its about the games that" but when it came down to it all they really showed that didnt suck was Pikmin 3.
And the 3DS was completely left in the dark.

Very disappointing conference
ShinMaster  +   1064d ago
Nintendo talked more, but didn't show anything new.

Sony showed more, but only a couple of surprises.

Microsoft talked and showed an even amount of stuff that isn't gaming related, like sports.


Maybe Sony and Nintendo sorta tied.

Why are most of the games still using graphics similar to Mario 64 on ultra Nintendo?

I want to buy a wii u because its a new video game system but its almost like they are doing everything to make me not want to buy it. I thought this thing suppose to cater more to the core
bothebo  +   1064d ago
My thoughts exactly. Old and crappy games are not going to capture the core audience. The only people who are going to buy a Wii U are Nintendo fan boys, no one else. Personally, I see no reason to buy it.
jack_burt0n  +   1064d ago
It really is time that Valve and nvidia stepped up and joined forces to bring a "proper" 3rd conference to E3.

could be a huge technology and indie development powerhouse for exposure.
stage88  +   1064d ago
Looks like Sony has won E3 2012 then.

Nintendo and Microsoft can fight it out between each other for worst conference.
GillHarrison  +   1064d ago
For console conferences Sony won, but only because it was the best of worst. Overall I think Ubisoft stole the show with Watch Dogs.
tokugawa  +   1064d ago
what was the prize for winning e3??

does anyone know? alot of people talk about someone winning, so they must know what was up for grabs...
stage88  +   1064d ago
@tokugawa You must be new to E3. There's no prize but every year there's always one company that comes out the winner.

There doesn't have to be a prize. Not all events end with a prize.

this year at E3 Sony , Microsoft an Nintendo has produced the worst Electronic Entertainment Expo i have ever seen. there are no winners . we all lost this year. i wanted to hang up my dualshock 3 for good after sonys conference .
Blastoise  +   1064d ago
It was rubbish tbh. Best thing about it was Pikmin 3, that game looked great. Too much ranting from Reggie, too much time spent on fitness & dance games and no Zelda, Metroid or Animal crossing stuff. Sony took it this year, even with the harry potter move game fail.

I'm really let down by Ninty. Disappointed.

Pikmin was great, but then on everything went downhill. How did they think that the hardcore would jump right on the Nintendoland stuff??

I kept wishing that Nintendo announce something near the end of the show, A new Metroid for example, to blow everyone away, but it looks like my expectations were too high.

If Nintendo's focus this time is getting back the hardcore, how will they win them back with stuff like Dance Central 4 and Wii Fit U? Do they expect us to buy this stuff at launch?

No release date, no price - nothing!

It's disappointing because they had EVERY CHANCE to blow everyone else out of the water, but they didn't.

...and who the hell knew that Ubisoft, a 3rd party publisher, would outshine everyone else?!?
TreMillz  +   1064d ago
seriously a hr and 15 with NO PRICE OR RELEASE DATE...just a bunch of games we knew was coming or obviously knew was gonna be announced(3 mario games...smh)...Im sorry but Nintendos Conference wasnt that much better than Microsofts or Sonys...Honestly its between Ubisoft and Sony
morkendo23  +   1063d ago
ONLY decent game i've seen thats not FPS related (rehashes) was RATCHET AN CLANK FULL FRONTAL ASSAULT
rest is rehash from 2006

Regardless there are tons of Big N fanboys that would no doubt be looking at this giving it a huge boost in temperature.

yeh! because only nintendo fanboys are watching nintendo E3.

i have watched all of them and i am a PC gamer.

Nice Start
New game with 23 showing up on stage during the conference.
I like how they're are going to focus on games.
Should be good....

Have to agree, it's pretty underwhelming so far. Most of this crap sounds like the majority of the Wii game library. Good to see some core games coming to it, they'll be good, but I'm really hoping this improves.

Damn I spoke too soon...
They had me hyped at the beginning talking about all the games...
neutralgamer19  +   1064d ago
Please i knew Nintendo would do this crapppppp. I called it a month ago when i saw rayman they would show cartoony graphics games that in no way show what the wii u can do smh All these games could probably be reproduced on the vita and def. on the xbox or 360 big fail sorryyyy!!!!!
spektical  +   1064d ago
pass on arkham city. already beat it.
jeseth  +   1064d ago
LOL .... We all knew it. A new Mario game and now a year old 3rd party game that doesn't even look better than 360 or PS3.

God Nintendo, there is so much you could do. Why not blow us away? Scribblenauts? Mass Effect 3 ... also too late. Another Wii Fit, obviously. Man, oh man.

To their credit I like their presentation but I was really hoping for something that would blow me away and be like "Yes, I wantt to go get a Wii-U". But thats not what I'm seeing. A nice presentation, but nothing unexpected or awesome in a year where Sony and MS pretty much kept the status quo and Nintendo could have amazed.
BISHOP-BRASIL  +   1064d ago
From this presentation the WiiU looks like just a Wii upgraded to support high definition (not necessarily high quality graphics) and that tablet controller, which could as well had come as an accessory for the Wii. So much for next gen hardware...
Tonester925  +   1064d ago
This is where they have to sell me.
YourFlyness  +   1064d ago
NSMBU would have blew me away if it was online multiplayer
i3eyond the Circle  +   1064d ago
I gotta say...I'm liking this conference over MS and Sony's already
abc1233  +   1064d ago
Really? It's mostly been rehashes, another mario game, cringe-worthy exchanges between hosts, and shovelware so far. Waiting for actual hardware specs and more info on Zombiu.

edit: change that to another 3 mario games -_-

ZombiU looks good but the create your own zombie mode looked very glitchy......sub par perfomance by Ninty so far
abc1233  +   1064d ago
It does look good, but I expected something much more from the first trailer. I'll have to wait to see if playing on the gamepad will add anything to it or just turn into a nuisance.
ozzywazzy  +   1064d ago
Yeah I bet the wii fitness game got you hard. Such a fail conference so far.. why nintendo? why...
i3eyond the Circle  +   1064d ago
Even if the content didn't fit your liking...I found it more interesting overall then MS and Sony's borefests.

It showed off the quirkiness of the WiiU and showed that nintendo will be hanging with the big dogs come next generation.

It was primarily built on gaming and thats why I respect this conference more so over Microsofts and Sonys so please...get off my dick.
torchic  +   1064d ago
cool stuff bro
gta2800  +   1064d ago
You sure about that? I mean Nintendo is barely bringing out a system that is barely on par with current gen consoles. Once Wii U is out, Sony and Microsoft will probably unveil newer hardware that will more than likely surpass Wii U in a lot of technical aspects, thus leaving Nintendo in the dust once again and probably getting less 3rd party ports like the Wii does now due to the huge graphical gap between the consoles. Or who knows, that's up to the developers but that's just my assumption based on how things are now. It's like Nintendo is barely jumping into the Gen that Sony and Microsoft will be leaving in the near feature. So I don't really know if they will "hang with the big dogs" in terms of hardware come next gen.

dawgsfan117  +   1064d ago
Hanging with the big dogs? You do understand MS and Sony will be releasing brand new systems with big hardware upgrades right? Not sure how showing off that the Wii U can play current gen games shows any potential to compete with next generations elite.
sikbeta  +   1064d ago
S#*T! already started!? damn, Stream NOW!

Not impressed so far. It's early days, but I'm not keen at what I've seen.

Big Props to Nintendo...
...for getting rehashes of current generations titles on... your... next generation platform?

No price, No date, misuse of their beloved franchises as they shoehorn their gimicky controllers into the game in the name of fresh new gameplay, Current Generation titles on their next gen system with gimicky control schemes shoehorned into them to give it that unique Wii feel...Fail Fail Fail!

Next years motto for Nintendo should be "More of the same old stuff. Nothing new to see here."

LOL - Well played sir. My wife loved the Wii Fit for about 3 months then summer came along and she was never inside long enough to play it.
neutralgamer19  +   1064d ago
The person tht said he likes this conference over sonys your delusional fanboy. Games with cartoon graphics that any system can do with gimmicky controls and Arkham city that in no way is an upgrade and doesnt look better than ps3 or xbox and is a year old lol hahahahaha yeah this conference is better

This conference made up my mind i wont spend money on this system it def is not next gen.
VonBraunschweigg  +   1064d ago
Reggie does look fit and oh will u look at that, Mass Effect 3 is coming:)
bothebo  +   1064d ago
Haha, a game I could have gotten three months ago on any other console without and onerous console. Sorry, Nintendo is blowing this if they are appealing to core gamers.
abc1233  +   1064d ago
I don't know anymore if Nintendo are releasing an actual console or just the gamepad, they're focusing way too much on it. Talk about the actual hardware Nintendo!
Morgue  +   1064d ago
Yeah it seems like a add on to the Wii right now.
solidjun5  +   1064d ago
I agree as well. However, there's still time so we'll see. Thus far, the way this is going, I believe this will be reasonably price. $300. Just an assumption.

EDIT: That's true. I said 300 because this is wii HD (thus far) with a cool looking controller. it's like 360/ps3 with a new nice controller. so yea, i think you're right. they can probably go for $300. Either way, it's a nice cool piece of tech.
#17.2 (Edited 1064d ago ) | Agree(2) | Disagree(1) | Report | Reply
abc1233  +   1064d ago
I dunno, that depends on whether the gamepad is included. It's obviously going to be much more expensive than any other controller we have seen, and if it isn't included then they can probably go for $300
segamon  +   1064d ago
at last, Nintendo gains some bloody veins. Hardcore games and everybody is happy. with the proper support, Wii U could be Nintendo's best console to date to both casual and hardcore gamers alike.

but i have to spell it out; with nothing unexpected and nothing new or truly interesting, this is a fail E3. so far at least.

The trailer from Iwata was complete trash. How could you have possibly thought it would get better at E3?
Red_Eye  +   1064d ago
It looked CGI to me. Didn't really show off how whether it would actually work like that, needed a real time demo.
xJumpManx  +   1064d ago
Wow Nintendo's conference sucked. hey start out with a Lemmings wannabe game and offer little to nothing after it. The 3Ds part while short was the most interesting part of the show. I still need to watch the Sony one but Nintendo was the worst one nothing they showed on the WiiU would make me want to buy it so far.
JRobes  +   1064d ago
but... its a revolution... didn't you hear?
segamon  +   1064d ago
this screen controller, when i play my game i don't want to keep take my eyes off and then on the screen damn it.

maybe it works for a simple game but defenitely not in an action game. i understand they're trying to push the technology in all directions but it's also good they considered providing a legacy controller.
izumo_lee  +   1064d ago
This is starting to be very underwhelming....so much potential but so far not nearly delivering anything worth while...YET.

I get the strange feeling that Smash Bros. or a new Zelda is gonna be the killer app at the end of the show. Or a price point for the Wii-U will be announced.
HarryMasonHerpderp  +   1064d ago
Nearly as bad as Microsofts in my opinion.
Pikmin looks really good though.


I know i am so disappointed i thought they were
going to blow us away with a new IP or something...
