The Waning Days of E3: How Nintendo And The Ouya Are Reaching Consumers Directly

Many, myself included, were quick to question the logic of giving up what had been Nintendo’s highest-profile platform from which to speak to the casual and mainstream consumer. After all, how would the USA Today’s and CNN’s be able to spend the only 30 seconds or three paragraphs all year that paint gaming in a positive light if they didn’t have a perfectly manicured stage show to distill pertinent information?

But maybe this is the beginning of the end for the Electronic Entertainment Expo after all. (E3, Industry, Ouya)

ouya will be sitting in the parking lot outside of the convention building, nintendo will have private meetings behind closed doors... fail all around.

And yet neither are watching my every movement or listening to every word I say and neither require me to be always online. Doesn't sound to Fail to me.

Are they actually reaching consumers?

I still don't know what the Ouya actually does and the Wii U is failing miserably.

I'd question whether they are reaching consumers at all.

I do make that point towards the end of the article. :)

"Public perception of the Wii U has been on the decline, and early dev kit units of the Ouya released to Kickstarter backers have been picked apart and found wanting."
