E3 2013: Expected and Rumours

The three E's of E3 stand for the Electronic Entertainment Expo. Hosted by the Entertainment Software Association, or ESA, it's an annual sneak peek at what's in store for the videogames industry for next year.
But enough dry details, this E3 2013 promises to be the most revelatory in years. Why? Because of the coming console war. Sony's PlayStation 4 is about to square off against the Xbox 720, or whatever Microsoft names it, for living room supremacy. (Dev, E3, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

"2. No Nintendo press conference

Nintendo has made the somewhat surprising decision to forgo its usual E3 press conference in favor of hosting a smaller, closed-doors events to focus primarily on software.
"We have decided not to host a large-scale presentation targeted at everyone in the international audience where we announce new information as we did in the past," said Nintendo President Satoru Iwata.
"Instead, at the E3 show this year, we are planning to host a few smaller events that are specifically focused on our software lineup for the US market."

See, Nintendo will be at E3.

They'll be there but so could Obama for all we know.
We won't see them is the problem.

Lol for Obama.

I think what they will do is:

-Have the Hands-On Press Event

-Allow the Press to write their Hands -On Review. Give them Screen Shots, video, and Interviews.

- And then do a corresponding Nintendo Direct so that we see what they saw.

Even if we saw it during a Press Conference, it would only be for 10 minutes or less.

A demo or a montage...

I don't get this train of thought though. The only way you won't see them is if you are actively avoiding them.

Their Directs or announcements or whatever they're doing are still going to be livestreamed and are still going to be covered by gaming websites. Sony and Microsoft's conferences are going to be livestreamed as well. If you miss out on their Nintendo Direct or whatever they're going to do, let's be honest, you probably weren't going to watch their conference anyway.

I watch the conferences mainly for the game announcements and new footage of games that I'm hyped for so once Nintendo gives me that I'll be fine. Or they can completely screw it up bigger than they messed up their conference last year with Nintendoland(woah, I bought back some dark memories there *shudders*).

I admit I'll miss Nintendo's conference because despite how good or bad they are they've always had their memorable moments (My body is Ready still hasn't gotten old to this day). But just because they have no conference, don't act like their going to be invisible. Their visibility factor will depend entirely on what they show.

bring there and making an actual impact are 2 different things, this is the most important E3 for nintendo and they are not hosting a big event when they actually have some huge games to show off for the 1st time

what you think during the E3 when sony and ms are talking about next gen and showing games how much attention would be on nintendo with these smaller events?

i could be wrong but IMO this is a very bad decision wii-u needs as much exposure as possible but nintendo is going the totally opposite direction

Well their Steam Box guess is off because Valve isn't going to be at E3.

Here's hoping for a great E3 all around, and a few megatons to get us all excited and talking.

I hope the Vitas new selling point is'nt to be a separate screen for PS4.

Other than that Square enix better show something awesome.

If Nintendo shows off the next Smash, I'm good.
