GGG writes about the reasons to like Nintendo's new approach to E3 and questions why people have gotten so upset about it to begin with.
We don't hate Nintendo's e3 strategy. We just hate Nintendo. They certainly could use the over-hype of a controlled audience.
-_- Glad to hear >_> They must had threaten your life or something.
Why would somebody hate Nintendo?
no just YOU hate nintendo
and the big N saved the gaming industry back in the day
Before we all pile-on this guy, surely "We just hate Nintendo" is sarcasm? The alternative is that we're all currently down-voting somebody with a mental illness.
@OtakuDJK1NG @HavokPants @Nevers0ft @lonely player Seriously?! My icon is "Captain N the GameMaster"... I thought the statement: "over-hype of a controlled audience" was a dead giveaway to sarcasm. I'm glad somebody caught it. ... good god, come on people
E3 is just a place that a lot of people hype about which is nothing bad. Beign absent again is a bad move. The embarrassing moments on stage, unannounced games beign shown, etc are what makes E3 presentations fun to watch. Last year we didn't get a lot of game demos on stage but the trolling that companies do with one another made one entertaining showing. The atmosphere around the event is good.
They weren't at E3 last year ? And they won't be there this year ? I thought they just just put out a video detailing their E3 plans. Guess it was a dream.
Hope that Is sarcasim I'm detecting lol. They had a big presence at last years e3 outside of a stage show lol... Tons of game stations and a massive booth... Not to mention demo kiosks at best buy.
Dude, be honest; aside from Sony's little jabs against Microsoft, last year was a flaccid joke. In fact, it's been far less impressive ever since they barred the public at large from the show; we get better reactions to the news from the Big 3, out of freaking YOUTUBE videos now. If you need proof that the audience reactions at E3 have degraded, just look back at E3 2006...
How about the crowd reaction to the last of us demo? Heck I was at home and even I was shivering from what I witness.
Last years e3 totally killed the Xbox 1s sales lol... So not sure why people are saying a stage show alone is positive.
@Bobacdigital yeah i know i was giving the guy i replied to crap.Nintendo will have a huge e3 presence this year as well. Can't wait to play smash at best buy.
I kinda agree with the article, but I'm unsure. There's just something exciting about a live presentation with amazing announcements.
I said many times here that Nintendo wouldn't do a normal press conference this year. This would mean that Nintendo would have recognized his last year mistake, to give us only a Nintendo Direct at E3 2013. Its really very very rare for Nintedo to recognize his mistakes, so this year we will have another Nintendo Direct or "Digital Event" as Nintendo calling it.....
He, Nintendo need's to bring the bombs to her e3. If not, He Sony and he Microsoft will steal her e3.
Nintendo is run by stubborn old farts that are stuck in the past.
At least there's quality from those old farts in there games!
A dog and pony show of video games doesn't constitute progress. And I don't really think console gaming has progressed in the last 4 years, judging on what's selling. Let's talk about how much "progress" Call of Duty has made.
I think it is great
The article said : If Apple did a video presentation of their next product they would still get the same amount of coverage- that may be true but Apple doesn't do a video presentation. they do a live presentation and have been for many years- MSFT and Sony could do video taped presentations too but they don t....for good reason Nintendo needs to be "front and center" for their presentation- they could still do all the things they announced for e3 but that should not stop them from doing the press conf event- t just seems lie they are either hiding and/or like last year feel they do t have the ammo to compete
