Nintendo Won't Have a Press Conference at E3 - But, It Isn't the End of the World

It's THAT time of year again. The most important time of year, for any gamer, aside from the holiday season. That's right - It's E3. The Electronic Entertainment Expo is a little more than a month away, and developers, investors, and gamers alike, are all getting revved up for the exciting events that will take place, at what is to be the BIGGEST, most important E3 in years. But despite it's importance, a certain company made a startling announcement that has left many stunned and others waving their "DOOM!" flags:

its nintendo, so no its not the end of the world. its just a really, really, really, really, really, bad choice marketing wise. I keep hearing they need to save money but with the 3ds outselling everything why would they need to save. ive honestly never seen anyone back down from a console since dreamcast, and we know THAT outcome...SEGA was already in the hole though before the dreamcast (which was a great console imo) . Nintendo is not so to me this is a pussy move..that or they just dont have much to show. Sony skipped on the vita last year and look what happened people were thinking the vita wasn't a priority for sony. the vita will make it but sonys marketing was highly criticized for this and they should have been. the wiiu is less than a year old selling worse than expected and yoh skip out on gamings biggest stage? bad marketing and Nintendo is failing the wiiu....all these excuses are dumb.

"its nintendo, so no its not the end of the world. its just a really, really, really, really, really, bad choice marketing wise."

Pretty much sums it up. I think it's a terrible move marketing wise but how this spells doom and gloom like a lot fools on the internet are spouting is beyond me.

If they release trailers and gameplay footage from some of these rumored games, they'll do well. Maybe the money they save from not doing a huge show can go towards advertising?

I wonder how many articles there will be on Nintendo did a clever/stupid/indifferent thing by not being at e3.

Someone should start a sweepstake. Ill go for 143 including the 1s already created. Iwata can count them for us. Winner gets a lap dance from Reggie.
