Nintendo's E3 press conference kicks off at 17:00pm BST and you can watch it streamed live right here on CVG.
Project Cafe!! blow me away nintendo! :)
The reason I am watching. Hopefully it is something totally awesome and preferably powerful hardware to back it up.
show new IP's
the hardware will be nothing compared to the ps4 or even my pc
It would seem the new hardware is just a new controller with a touch screen TV on it.
what an epic fail worst e3 yet and sony wins again.
so ninty announce nothing butgames for the wiiU that are already on ps3 and xbox with inferior graphics. YAAAAAAAAAAAAAWN
who will jump on Wii U from Xbox or PS3 as a main system? no one
Hm, something for all? Nope.
that controller reminds me of those home automation ones celebs and big name athletes use to control their tv and lights and etc. It wont be in the hands of my kids I can tell you that. I call dibs.
WII U. that's all folks.
This is what the next gen nintendo should have been like in the first place. One part of me thinks its cool, but the other part feels a little meh towards this.
I have to admit, this Wii U is pretty intriguing.
no real info to be intrigued about. i just saw a more powerful PS3/360 with a Vita used as the controller. maybe by TGS or next years E3 there will be actual details to get excited for.
I see that article on IGN. Makes sense to use Vita this way.
Yea just saw wii u. Looks like a gimmic to me still I'm sorry. There was nothing stunning about the graphics either. 360 still trumps over it in graphics.....The controller was the only thing that had me wow. Disappointment.
SONY WON E3
lol im so dissapointed. what are the specs? no specs?
looking forward to this. I've been highly critical of nintendo since the wii launched. This is their chance to prove themselves as the great nintendo of old.
should be good all nintendo have to do to win is show up :)
It did not work last year so just showing up wont win this year. I think they are going to need to show the specs of the cafe, many games for the cafe, and new ips for them to instantly win for me.
Well, they won last year, so um... Question mark.
Dude, that was E308, last year was pretty solid, lets see what N has to offer this time...
Nintendo wins but default
i have another prediction! StarFox and also the return of an old franchise
My eye's are on Kid Icarus for the Wii 1 and 3 quarters. Or donkey kong. Expect to see spankin new versions of megaman, kirby,super smash brothers, mario and zelda, all sparsed painstainkingly across the 3DS, Wii, and Wii 1 and 3 quarters. And maybe a metroid for good measure.
think NES days
nin wins if the new console is hardcore and powerfull, if not, no sale.
For you maybe. The Wii didn't need to rely on power to be the best selling console this gen. Kind of mute statement. Personally I agree though. I'm buying it if it comes out being a powerhouse running BF3 on highest settings and whatnot.
its not a mute point for me though is it? the wii is the best selling console so FAR, its droping off at a shocking rate, how many of those consoles still get played, most gather dust, nobody i know plays wiis anymore most have traded them in, i understand that power dont mean anything to most casuals, but for gamers like me we need to see a jump, so like i said if it aint for the hardcore then IM not buying. @VampiricDragon i dont think so, this gen is far from over. like it or not the wii is dead, why you think nin is releasing new console?
@IRetrrouk it was the top selling system of 2010. This year it might not be. But that doesnt change things It will be the only console to break 100 mil this gen
Considering the most recent sales data, I'm not sure the Wii will be the best selling console when all is said and done. They'll have to convince that entire fringe audience of theirs to buy all over again if they expect lightning to strike twice. I'd say they have their work cut out for them. (Though all they have to do to sell me is show me Mario or Link in 1080p)
The console games that I keep playing halo BC2 smash bros brawl MH tri and tatsunoko vs capcom. The wii is a fine system. Most of main titles are still better that what on ps3 or xbox with their fancy graphics. Is uncharted better than galaxy 2 ? Is final fantasy 13 better than xenoblade? Even with lack of power fatal frame 4 is the scariest game I've played. The wii is not just a toy for kids itslike all nintendo systems, it's for everybody. The new nintendo will be the same. And ps3 will just keep delaying games and xbox will keep forcing people to play kinect and look at adds for stuff they don't wanna buy...
Who the fuck cares about sales in this situation? The Wii attracted millions of casual gamers with motion controls... It was also far cheaper... Of course it is going to sell more but does that mean it is a better console for hardcore gamers? Hell no! If you are a exclusively a ninty gamer then I and think its hardcore I pity your stupid ass...
no they don't what PS3 or 360 gamer is going to but th egamecube 2 instead of GeOW3 or UC3. thats the problem we already have HD consoles very established so now having a market with 3 is over saturated. they will win because from SD to HD is a large gap so people will be amazed but i think its a bad move and it will be more than PS3 and 360 as well so bad move on them
besides EA, UBi & PSVita games E3 has been so ass! Kinect is main focus , Uncharted looked good but not so different from UC2, no Last guardian, more Kinect!! I want to rip heads off.. If EA & UBi had there own consoles they would have won! Please Nintendo go back to the SNES & Nintendo 64 hardcore days! @IRetrouk I am talking about gameplay. Water looked amazing though..
I think Sony will be unveiling a lot more games at TGS and Gamescom.
You get a bubble for your name not your Sony defense post
I think its obvious that they will be showing off TLG, Ni no Kuni, and FFV13 at TGS. Don't start with that "Sony defense" crap.
look at the lighting and player movement in uncharted, plus the background scenery, it looks well improved. why do you need diffrent gameplay, uncharted is loved BECAUSE of the gameplay, why would it need changed?
Sad to see all these nintendo fans that have had their bubbles stripped by all the kids on this site that are to young to know nintendo has and will always be ahead of the game.
NINTENDO BEST Conference!! Sony boring..........
If we are judging by entertainment value MS won! I haven't laughed so hard in a long time. Sony's was kind've dull but they had a ton of new games and a lot of good info. At least they had prices, specs and games to show. Nintendo not so much
For the record Nintendo is releasing a new console not because Wii is dead, but its been 6 Damn years. Wii saw my nephew go from Diapers to kindergarten. yes it's been that long. Nintendo always updates after that long
E3 2011 CORE GAMERS! You wanted Nintendo to do away with the friendcodes > DONE You wanted not some, not a little, NOT half sometimes BUT FULL 1080P HD> DONE Real Online setup and Not the casualty the wii was offering> DONE You want MORE POWER!!! MORE MORE, 3rd Parties and the kitchen sink > DONE You want that Girls phone number that was checking you out > DONE WTF else do you want beside her giving you a BJ??? YOU want to end all these damn speculation and see the damn event already so we can all raise our hand high and say HELL YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!! OR point to the stars with our MIDDLE finger FU NINTY! I say Bring it and leave all the BS at the door, I've personally waited half a decade for this damn day. I don't care about the 3DS, PS3,PS4,PSV,360,720 or god knows whatever else. This is actually personal and some others on here, I know they must feel the same. Been on the Nintendo roller coaster for almost 3 decades and I want to see and Epic win or disastrous fail. T-minus 4 hours 12 PM EST IS THE TIME of Judgment day.
If you don't care about the PS3 or 360 then why do you own them? Just asking. I've owned Nintendo products since 85/86 but was never interested in the Wii and quite frankly it'll take more than a flashy new system with pimp graphics and the same franchises to get me back on board.
Pear pressure... need to keep up with the Jones =/
Fail~ AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH HHHHHH *jumps off a cliff*
Disastrous fail it is, then. Big N managed not to announce a new console - but yet another peripheral. Wow. Surprised. But then, not really. It is Nintendo. Why did I even watch that for an hour...ts ts
you got the disastrous fail alright and it's called U. and it's "peer pressure."
I'm so effin pumped for this conference.
What time in GMT?
less than an hour. Oh shit erection
Or you can go to nintendo's official e3 live video streaming blog.
MUSE!!! Hell yeah
WTF is Miyamoto doing with that orchestra mimicking Zelda sounds??! The translator looks so embarassed himself! I feel for you mate!!
Its Nintendo's show to lose. If the Wii 2 is what they claim it to be with those specs, they win E3
Here it comes.....
nobody wins E3. There are simply better showings. And sony brought the games, microsoft brought kinect, and nintendo brought new console. everyone brought something.
New console? That "pad" there? Sony didn't, or what? Alternate reality, right there.
I guess we have to suffer through the handheld portion to get to the good stuff, yawn.
I love Nintendo, but... Wii U...? Ug!
Wow. That was disappointing.
Wii U looks pretty sweet.
That thing looks so uncomfortable XD. This is a train wreck lol
What a DISAPPOINTMENT!
Ladies and gentlemen, Nintendo has abandoned the "hardcore" gamers for good. That is really disappointing.
What a great way to waste electricity..
Wii U?? So I would have to use an iPad for a controller now? I can't even believe what I'm seeing and I keep waiting for Oprah to come out and say " Look under your seat, you've all got a Wii U!!!!!! "
