It was just announced that Nintendo would be doing a much smaller scale E3 this year. This is really disappointing. E3 is like the Super Bowl for gamers. It is the grand stage. Nintendo doing a quieter show is like a team dropping out of the big game. They are assuring us they will have some sort of presence, but that is like your hometown friend moving a hundred miles away and promising to "keep in touch". It's a nice gesture, but in your mind you know that it won't be the same.
