IGN: "We weigh in on the absence of Nintendo's Digital event at E3."
We all know the next Zelda game will be amazing, but just because the next Zelda title is underway, doesn't mean Nintendo should get a free pass by not showing anything else at E3. Imagine if this were Sony or Microsoft? Everyone would let them have it. ;)
Agreed man. This is a big middle finger to all the WiiU fans. What ever the NX is gimmick or not, I hope Nintendo supports it more than the WiiU and hope 3rd party developers support it.
> This is a big middle finger to all the WiiU fans. It's on its way out. lol you guys are so dramatic.
Bullshit as usual from one of N4g's biggest trolls. Nintendo said that Zelda will be the only playable game at e3 not the ONLY game at e3. U trolls get worse by the day. Lol_wot your new name is lol_wot life? Cause you really need to get one. Lol d;o)
You sound really upset. Probably because even you know Nintendo is f'ing up.
to add insult to injury, their only playable game on show wont be out until this time next year. the damage control fans keep making out that its a tactical choice to have an absence of games and new hardware at e3, while i think its a deeply worrying indication of the state of affairs at nintendo
And how does this affect your sad pathetic life? What successes have you had in your life that match that of Nintendos to back up why we should all listen to a Nintendo hater? Have you ever ran a company as long as Nintendo? Have you made billions like Nintendo? Have you made millions of people happy like Nintendo? Nope your just an insignificant troll. Go back under your bridge, u have no credentials. d;o)
It's their only PLAYABLE game at E3. Doesn't mean they wont show more.
Unfortunately, Nintendo has thrown in the towel on the Wii U. This is why nothing will be shown at E3 but Zelda. Nintendo has promised Wii U fans Zelda so that game will be present at E3. I wouldn't be shocked to see less than a hand full of new AAA Wii U games from now on. Nintendo NX will be here shortly!
Sony and/or Microsoft have yet earned - and perhaps never will - this 'privilege'. Nintendo kick-started the industry as we know it, has created the majority of the best games of all time AND had to navigate some key franchises in the transition from 2D to 3D - a feat neither Sony or Microsoft have needed to do. Most of the blueprints for the videogames we know today come from the desks of Nintendo.
No, it really isn't as dramatic or amazing as you claim. In fact, Nintendo has shown Sony and MS how NOT to design gaming hardware, and how NOT to make games. They've become mostly irrelevant in the gaming industry, and with most of the gaming community.
Because the new Pokemon games won't get a look in? Sure Zelda maybe the only Playable game on the show floor but there will be other announcements.
* Not a big deal, we are getting a separate Nintendo Direct for the NX and I think it will be better than way when it is the only focus.
There are always surprise announcements with the anticipated ones at E3, not long now.
Can anybody explain Nintendo's mindset?
"We're on the cusp of revealing a new console but are yet to show it, and thus can only present what we currently have that is new and upcoming on currently released systems." Zelda is the exception because despite it being an NX game, it's also a Wii U title. Though it is odd that there's nothing for the 3DS. A sign that maybe the NX will be a line of new systems with games that scale across its platforms. Similar to the original goal of the PS Vita and PS3/4?
i can explain, remember when Miyamoto said that HD development needed more manpower? http://www.engadget.com/201... yep that's it, they need time adapting with the technology giving how games are demanding nowadays, im not making excuses for them btw, their wii and wiiu simple game design philosophy (for maximum revenue) bite their rear ends but hopefully they can adapt well and stun us with the NX
"Our next system is going to cost a bit of money. So, let's make sure they a reason to save their money; not give them anything to buy this year!" That was a joke, but that's really how it's starting to seem.
they only have one good game in playable form. its as simple as that. sony and microsoft are going to capitalise on nintendos absence on the show floor. the journalists will have tonnes to write about micro/sony, but little to write about nintendo. little positive anyway. it also means gamers will turn their attention more towards sony and microsoft, since they actually have more games on show. whichever way you look at it, nintendo will lose a lot of custom to sony/micro.
its fine honestly, i mean really who wants to see paper mario color splash or federation force after the backlash they gave those games?
Nintendo said Zelda is the only PLAYABLE game at E3. They never said anything about other announcements, which I'm sure there will be a few.
What type of announcements, indie games? Realistically how many AAA games have been announced AND released in such a short time frame? Also there will be no Digital Event, their Treehouse live stream involving Zelda is their main focus. Next up you guys will be saying "who cares Zelda was awesome, there's still TGS." ;)
Zelda is still awesome, but the fact that's the only game at e3 is disappointing.
Realistically how many AAA games does Nintendo even release? And if you know anything about Nintendo you would know that they are good at holding off announcements and keeping leaks to a minimum. We know there's a WiiU paper Mario game, Pikmin 4 is supposed to be in development for quite a while now. I'm not saying they're gonna "win" E3 or anything, but don't just assume all they have is Zelda. And yes, who cares? Zelda IS awesome ;)
I stopped caring about what Ninendo does a long time ago. One game, no games, no shits given.
And yet, here you are....
Yes, but I was only here to get directions on how to get away from here ...
Yeah, BS. You don't need directions; you just need to stop clicking on Nintendo articles. Nintendo doesn't need you any more than you need Nintendo. Haters gonna hate.
Wow, you know that when Jose Otero (IGN's Nintendo reviewer) is concerned about Nintendo's weak E3 plans, things really must be bad. He's a diehard fan who usually supports everything Nintendo does no matter what.
There are three days in E3, not just one. So until Nintendo themselves steps in and says outright that they won't show anything new during any of those three days, I'm taking this report with a grain of salt. Others can believe it all they want. I no longer care. In brighter news, and on the flip side, putting this much emphasis on Zelda also shows that they've got an incredible amount of confidence in it, which makes me excited to see what it's like.
Nintendo ....you lost me a long time ago !! Your bullshit mindset is why !!.I want the NX to be a huge hit but zelda alone is not going to hold you up ... for lots of your past gamers zelda is no big deal . There is no reason why you can't show some other games that are in the works from 1st 2nd and 3rd parties at E3. i wan't to get back on board with nintendo but sadly can't see that somehow .....simply nintendos games don't do it for me any more .
They're E3 showing has nothing to do with NX, all their NX info and games are gonna be revealed in the later stages of the year. They have a lot in store for NX, just wait and find out.
What about Pokemon Sun and Moon???????????
Pokemon games get their own spotlight outside of E3. 90% of the news come from Corocoro Magazine and Show.
Who cares it's a big game they are not concentrating on wiiu so who needs E3 ? if there stopping support on wiiu then they essentially don't have an E3 ? There coming with a new brand the NX and they will show it off in a dedicated Nintendo Direct.
I haven't owe single nintendo system but it would be shame to see them go like sega... they part of every gamer life even if you never played nintendo...
This just in... Nintendo asks, "Whatcha gon do about it IGN?"
all i got to say is Nintendo revived the video game industry. They know what they are doing!
It is more than OK considering Nintendo has already released more games than any other publisher this year. A worthless event? Come on.
