Yes, whomever wrote this article knows what they are doing, more so than nintendo?

Of course he knows better than a multimillion $ company knows..

Because multimillion dollar companies NEVER make mistakes or go out of business.

Come on, it's pretty easy to see that them skipping out on the big conference is a bad move, especially with the Wii U not doing so well. Nintendo Directs are nice, but they're just not the same.

We all know that corporations know best. EVERY time.

Nintendo fan downplay is getting pretty awful. This article makes very good points on why skipping the CONFERENCE (the title is confusing, but two sentences in you know that they mean the conference, not E3 all together) is a bad idea.

Considering Nintendo aren't skipping E3 the entire article is pretty much rendered moot.

No big, embarrassing press event that's almost entirely talking and "target" renders of games and playable games on the show floor instead? OH THE HORROR!

THE ARTICLE IS WRITTEN IN THE CONTEXT OF A LACK OF CONFERENCE, NOT A LACK OF E3 PRESENCE. DO NOT FALL FOR FANBOYS WHO DON'T READ THE ARTICLE - IT'S EVIDENT TWO SENTENCES IN.

Crazy thought; they could put effort into a GOOD presentation.

Floor stands don't get reported on 1/10th as much as conference reveals. Same as only doing "directs" and not E3 conference...it's literally the difference between millions or thousands seeing your work.

You don't try to save money by cutting out the most important conference of the year. Conference announcements get 100x more media coverage than stands.

They could save a couple mil and do something more productive with it also.
the media will still plaster what they show all over even if they dont put on a play.

MNGamer-N1155d ago

As long as there are game announcments at E3 I don't care if they have an official presentation or not.

Garethvk1155d ago

No reason to hold one. Two years ago they announced the ii U. Last year was more Wii U. The Nokia Theater is not a cheap rental as they do their conference off site. If you have nothing epic to promote, save the money, show what you have at your area inside E3 and leave it at that.

Maybe they're skipping E3 so they don't feel pressured into giving the Wii U a price drop?
