You can now watch the 2012 Nintendo E3 Press Conference live at Nintendo.com
Hopefully some Smash Bros Gameplay?
I can see that at next years E3 for sure. Now? Too early. Maybe a teaser but..... nah. lol.
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
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. lol 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
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.
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.
Looks like Sony has won E3 2012 then. Nintendo and Microsoft can fight it out between each other for worst conference.
For console conferences Sony won, but only because it was the best of worst. Overall I think Ubisoft stole the show with Watch Dogs.
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...
@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 .
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?!?
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
ONLY decent game i've seen thats not FPS related (rehashes) was RATCHET AN CLANK FULL FRONTAL ASSAULT rest is rehash from 2006
Pikmin looks pretty good
750 in 3 mins? i call hax. XD
HAH! Seriously right? 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.
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....
No it's sucking about 30 minutes in.
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...
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!!!!!
pass on arkham city. already beat it.
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.
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...
This is where they have to sell me.
NSMBU would have blew me away if it was online multiplayer
I gotta say...I'm liking this conference over MS and Sony's already
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
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.
Yeah I bet the wii fitness game got you hard. Such a fail conference so far.. why nintendo? why...
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.
cool stuff bro
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.
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.
S#*T! already started!? damn, Stream NOW!
those graphics arent what they said they were. sorry
Not impressed so far. It's early days, but I'm not keen at what I've seen.
...for getting rehashes of current generations titles on... your... next generation platform? ***FACEPALM***
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."
43 million copies of Wii Fit & Wii Fit plus sold??? I wonder how many are collecting dust or being used as TV trays?
42,786,000 .. the other 214,000 are being used as cutting boards.
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.
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.
Reggie does look fit and oh will u look at that, Mass Effect 3 is coming:)
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.
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!
Yeah it seems like a add on to the Wii right now.
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.
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
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.
"Yes, my body was ready." Yup, Reggie said it. Laughed sooo hard at that.
This has been the worst E3 in a while.
True. All 3 were actually quite boring:( Some fantastic highlights but all watered down with casual or social crap.
This conference has brought my expectation down the drain for the WiiU.
Just like the improve rehashes of games it is getting, the Wii U seems like an improved rehashed Wii
As of now, it seems identical to the wii. lego? wii fitness? batman? Why are they purposely trying to fail? real core.
Oh yeah...lego world baby....lol :/ Ok so the zombie game is looking cool and brought a smirk to my face.
atleast theyre showing 3ds stuff.. fking sony showed nothing for vita... feels like my £300+ worth vita is a waste atm.. very sad day for us vita gamers :(
And with this, the E3 was a waste of time. Again.
haha one down, a few more to go. shok, general, hollow...
the Nintendo Defence Force in all their glory. and then itsLugia will complain about being disagreed by General's many accounts loool
Dear GOD. It's being another snoozefest.
ZombiU looked pretty tight though.
