Gamesta's Daav Valentaten weighs in on how Nintendo did at E3.
I think they did well. I agree that they played it safe, but safe for them included some pretty big games. They are going to sell many many millions of copies of each of the games shown, so I think they came with some big guns. If they are going to be focusing on Nintendo Direct's from now on, make sure we can view it without glitching. And the Best Buy demos were a smash hit, there was a 2 hour line at mine. Next time, setup 2 or 3 demo stations so we can play longer.
The 3ds looks like it's going to have another good year but most of the anticipated games for WiiU won't come out until 2014. I'm still going to pick one up but I'm going to wait for some of those titles first.
Yeah, and a price drop isn't too far off either. I mean the PS4 is a mere $50 more than the deluxe version. People shouldn't expect it right away though, Nintendo announced the price drop of the 3DS about one and a half months after the Vita's price drop was announced so I believe it should be cheaper by the end of the year. Sales should pick up by then as well.
Nintendo assisted in making this a great E3 for JRPG lovers like myself. I mean not only did I get Final Fantasy XV and Kingdom Hearts 3 but a new trailer for X which looks absolutely stunning! http://www.youtube.com/watc... Add the Wonderful 101, Bayonetta 2, Mario Kart 8(which I'm surprised managed to impress me), Smash Bros, Pikmin 3, Donkey Kong Country and Wind Waker HD and they had a "safe" but overall very solid showing. Not to mention, letting the public get hands on with some of their games was a nice touch.
I loved it. Now that the X1 is out of the question the wii-u is definitely in my sights. Nin has some really really good games coming out.
Im thinking about getting this instead of the PS4..
I'm buying most if not all the games they showed,which is sort of the point of these things, so I think they did well.
