1. What do you think the theme of the show will be? This question applies to the entire spectacle that is E3. Last year was a small, corporate event. It was very focused on getting exactly the desired message to the audience.
2. What do you expect to see on Nintendo systems from both first and third parties? This question is pretty open-ended. I left it up to our staff to determine how they wanted to answer; I only asked them to keep it brief.
3. What is your most desired wish for E3 that you think may actually come true? This question is an invitation for wild speculation, limited only by the imaginations of our staff."
