BNR: E3 may only last three days, but a lot of news and previews come out of those few days. So many new games are revealed that it can be quite the overload for gamers. And with the introduction of two new gaming consoles hitting the market this fall, there was a lot to be excited for.
Every year the Big 3 (Sony, Microsoft, and Nintendo) have high priced, over the top conferences to present their new software and plans for the coming year. This year was the same with the exception of Nintendo. Rather than spend a large amount of money for a two hour conference on stage, the company decided to stream their conference online in the same way they have been doing the Nintendo Direct videos. This was a smart move on their part, since both Microsoft and Sony would be showcasing the many games that would be coming to their next gen consoles. And since Nintendo had already released the Wii U, this allowed them to show us great software in development for the system that would tap into the functionality of the system’s gamepad. This was Nintendo’s moment to go big and wow us with games that would look great, play well, and pull in more sales for the console.
