Nintendo Dropped the Ball, Not the Mic, With Its Nintendo World Championships 2015 Qualifiers

Following Nintendo's outline of its E3 plans last week, we got rather optimistic and hopeful about the Nintendo World Championships 2015, stating that the E3 event could be just the beginning.

Ok it is not as convenient. I get it. 8 locations. It's not using the wiiu oooook. I can understand these guy want the wiiu to be more popular but this is not an issue. Nintendo is getting ready for the future. It's not about one system it is about the games and the nintendo brand. This is just fan service and was not going to be a popularity boost for the wiiu but for nintendo like games.

The thing is if this is a success then the dena deal and the new nintendo account could lead to this championship happening even more.

More people have 3ds also so it is just more practical. E3 should still be pretty good. I have no idea why sony and ms doesn't do some thing like this at E3. They actually have an online trophy system and subscription gaming.
