The Japanese stock market has reacted badly to Nintendo’s E3 presentation, with stock in the company falling 2.68 per cent since trading opened today.
i'm not surprised at all, i was really looking forward to picking a wii u up. I'm just not happy with nintendo route. wii fit u at e3 wtf.
I couldn't agree more. I was so excited about this system, but after e3, I have major doubts now. I am hoping that the Tokyo Game Show will fix this. I was really disappointing in their Wii U showing.
I was hoping for a Metroid game and then he announced Wii Fit U, I mean I was like "The Wii Fit U...are you serious, this is something you would announce next E3 after you've given the Wii U a ton of core support" It's basicaly the same game like Wii Fit Plus where they've kept most of the stuff from the first game but added another collection of mini games. All they've done really is add a U to the end of it.
Nintendo has really screwed up! all they needed was an epic Mario Bros, Metroid, Zelda showing but we got none of that. no one give a rats arse about the 3DS. I see 5 year old kids playing games on Cell phones all the time now. as far as the stock dropping once Nintendo gets it act together it will go back up and if not then maybe they will get bought out.
Nintendo's E3 show just saved me some money. It convinced me to not purchase a WiiU and save my money for something else.
It started off well with pikmin 3 but it just went downhill from there. I am excited about Pikmin 3 and interested in that zombie game, but there isn't much else convincing me to get a wii u. Dancing, singing, and excercise games aren't going to make me want a wii u...
Sell! That presser was terrible. They're still trying to ride the casual wave that died with the Wii's sales.
I called it. Investors were looking to Nintendo's E3 showing to calm their fears. Sure all stocks are down on worldwide economic worries - but Nintendo had an opportunity to show some strong leadership and direction and change investor's minds. They accomplished none of those things.
i mean, it was a good presentation, but i was expecting to hear about/see the actual tech specs of the wii U. they didn't even mention the console itself, just the remote as they did the previous year. some of the things that controller can do, though, is pretty impressive.
They have another software show we might see more at it hopefully more games and wiiU gameplay footage
I can honestly say i'm a PlayStation man but i was looking forward to getting the Wii U but after there E3 showing i will not be getting 1 they didn't show me nothing to make me get hype for!!
I didn't watch the Nintendo press conference, but did anythign even happen? I feel like it just passed by. No news reached the top 5 here on n4g, at least of what I've seen.
I think it comes down to them not announcing a price for Wii U and possibly lack of 3DS titles announced.
Oh Nintendo, oh Nintendo. I love your systems and your games, I'll buy a WiiU for sure. But you're really bad at making a show.
Not surprised at all. Nintendo showed absolutely nothing that would make me want to get the WiiU on its launch day.
Nintendo is just in it for the money now they dont care for hardcore. i use love all nintendo stuff,games etc but now all i see is just gimmic after gimmic and weak system!
I am in the same boat with you man. Loved Nintendo but they have forgotten the hardcore market. Shame. Still love Nintendo but this gimmick needs to stop.
E3 pretty much killed my interest in Wii U, I needed to see a Metroid or Zelda but Nintendo is probably saving it's best games to battle PS4 and Durango
More Mario No price No specs No release date Old PS3/360 games ported to WiiU No thanks..
specs have been released you could probably find it on N4G somewhere.
I yawned like crazy when I was watching the Nintendo Press Conference.
Didn't the same thing happened to Nintendo after last year's E3?
Looks like the gimmick is running out of it's charm
most stocks arent doing all that great.
Of course wii u is current gen bs trying to catch up. Whoever thinks wii u is the future and next gen is crazyyyyy. Theres a few ppl out there lying to themselfs like shintow and a few others that stealth troll hard lol But i see you.
nintendo stock will pull a world trade center when the wiiu launches and no one buys it.
I like how people are moaning about all the ports and then say it would have been brilliant if they had shown Metroid/Zelda/Donkey Kong/Mario etc. I'm glad they didn't show off much of their beloved franchises. It's a shame they missed a golden opportunity to show off something new though, because a new console launch would have been a perfect time to introduce them. They would have got plenty of coverage this year as well.
Well they have to do some serious damage control now before the WiiU launches. I'm sure we'll be seeing a Nintendo Direct video from Iwata and Reggie apologizing for the major mis-step. But how much more of this are people wlling to take? You can't keep releasing products and giving public apologees for failed marketing to your public audience.
Nintendo has a pretty big following, as long as they hit the magic pricepoint they'll be fine. This will be their main challenge. Following that casuals will still buy it cause it is a great kid friendly product. Old people will still buy it cause they still want the youngins round their place and having a toy they will enjoy will entice them to stay over longer. Their main problem will be if Wonderbook takes off or PS4 &/or Xbox3 offer something even more unique, eg. Kinect 2 (MS) or VR (Sony)
