Play Nintendo @ E3 Discussion

GameXplain: "Nintendo announced their plans for E3 today which include a new Digital Event, constant live coverage from their Tree House, and a chance for gamers to try Super Smash Bros. for Wii U at select Best Buys! So we discuss whether this is a good way to change their fortunes and just how well this strategy might work." (Nintendo DS, Super Smash Bros. for Wii U, Wii U)

are you actually going to be in the audience for any of the conferences?? because otherwise, we are all just watching a streaming video...

That live Smash Bros tournament and the ability to play Smash U early is going to earn Nintendo some SERIOUS attention this year.
Much, much better than that single Direct from last year!

Also, Fils-a-Mech is going to be meme'd so badly....XD

From my understanding, the main concern people have with this approach as opposed to the live stage show, is the lack of atmosphere. When the big reveals comer out and the old E3 crowds would be going fking mental, 2004 Zelda is the best example of that. So why not just show the DigitalEvent to a live audience and have the best of both worlds. They're using the theatre already for the Smash Bros tournament, so why not have the E3 show, shown off to a live audience with all the woops and man tears, then go straight into the Tourney. All without stopping the stream.

There's a difference this time around;
unlike the early 2000's when E3 was awesome, the recent E3 audiences are comprised solely of press.
No public attendance for the press conferences unless under special circumstances.
They've become decidedly less exciting to watch since that happened.

E3 itself, the game demo's and such, is at the Los Angeles Convention Center and as far as i know the Nokia Theatre isn't a part of it. Correct me if i'm wrong. So why don't Nintendo just let people in the theatre to watch the show and then just carry it on with the SB tournament?

Because they won't need to.
They'll be doing a live stream from Nintendo Treehouse, which will run throughout the entire 3 days of E3 instead of just an hour on stage, on top of their digital show, on top of the coverage of the Invitational.
