Will Nintendo reveal the NX in an actual E3 conference, or will they just do another direct?
Surely they can't possibly skip out on having an actual E3 press conference this year..
Nintendo is fucked, they're a dead and irrelevant company, and NX will be shit and sell like shit regardless of whether they have an E3 or not.
Realize the Nintendo you knew and loved as a child is no more, buy a PS4, and move the fuck on. If you ever want to experience Nintendo again, just emulate some of their old games, because they've been rehashing the same shit for 20 years anyways.
Wii and Wii U are both massive wastes of money and I regret even giving Nintendo another chance to try to impress me. Now I have a PS4 which will be getting every relevant game this gen, many of them exclusively, and I'm never looking back.
They will reveal it in a secret direct as quietly as possible, then continue to limp until they die from the wiiu debt and the strain from producing 40 million NXs that won't sell 300k
Why would they choose to do a traditional press conference over a Direct? Directs allow them to have 100% control over timing, it's a lot cheaper, there won't be any technical fuck ups and there won't be any cringe-inducing silences when they try to crack poor jokes. Nintendo also realise that 90% of the viewers will be at home anyway (so throwing a big conference for the 10% seems like a waste).
>buy a PS4
I'm not going to deny that some of Nintendo's decisions in recent years have been terrible and that I disagree with them, but this is just pathetic.
They definitely can, e3 is a joke and the nintendo fans get way more hyped for direct.
A sick e3 conference would help their sales a little I guess but that conferences is full of journalists and 30 year old cawadoody boys so it hardly matters
>but that conferences is full of journalists
Which is what Nintendo needs. Nintendo needs the world to know about NX, not just Nintendo fans. If only Nintendo fans buy the NX, Nintendo is doomed as a hardware maker because it'll be Wii U all over again.
Nintendo needs people writing articles about the NX and getting the public aware of its existence. A Direct alone probably wouldn't do it as well
There's absolutely no downside to doing a Direct fot the NX's reveal.
There has never been a good console unveiling at E3 ever.
It would just result in cringe worthy shit like "RIIIIIIDGE RACERRRR" and a plethora of technical issues.
If Nintendo has made and any actual good decicions in recent years, its been to abandon E3 confrences.
>Nintendo fucked up and made it digital only
Nintendo reaaallly needs to redeem themselves
Gaming became great again which makes Nintendo's decline seem even worse
I mean Nintendo was great during the short peroid of time between 2013-2014 amd now they seem to be more focused on toys rather than videogames
No, journalists hate Nintendo. They only look for the negative, so its better to just have a direct.
>If only Nintendo fans buy the NX, Nintendo is doomed as a hardware maker because it'll be Wii U all over again.
That doom brought them 10 million console sales. People really like to downplay that number as bad, and it is bad compared to the other consoles. However, 10 million is a lot, it always could have been worse. People seem to forget this, that it could have always been worse.
Keeping in mind how Nintendo works, their new plan is probably attempts to make more dedicated Nintendo fans. To expand that 10 million.
You retards realize that Nintendo has a fuckload of floorspace at E3, right? If the NX is at E3 in playable form, which I find unlikely but whatever, there will be people playing it.
What, do you think reporters and shit are going to be" hurr I don't need to try the brand new fucking console that was just announced" just because it wasn't on a stage?
They don't though, they have about the same as the other big 2.
That image is funny, the booths aren't even setup, no shit there's no wait for something that isn't on. They idle that shit on the demo pages.
But yeah, E3 has no more presence on the Nintendo side, in fact, they close off the treehouse shit to most people.
I still think it's hilarious that they still insist on the the directs. The only people that watch them are nintendo fans. What's the point of marketing to the people that would buy your product whether or not your market it?
They're a lot more enjoyable than the awful scripted scenes that force Reggie memes or give false hype over shit games, along with 'softly' announcing DLC.
Even in controlled venues, Nintendo can't fathom proper presentation and further disconnects them as a major party.
>That damage control.
Yeah Sony let their techies take a catnap and left a chunk of their floorspace unfinished for a while.
I've been to multiple shows, dumbass. They never leave a booth off unless they are closing or setting up.
In any case, nope, Nintendo doesnt get more floor space. Most of it is used for statues and stupid shit like the tropical freeze photo booth.
I hate watching them bleedout, someone should just buy them out and gut them to end their suffering, but then again, no one would want to take on all that debt the wiiu made that not even selling everything could pay back
I've already lost interest in pokemon. The time between like 2010 and 2014 where there was a "new" pokemon game literally every year. I'd had enough. Haven't bought a pokemon game since X/Y I think. Got smash on the 3DS and played for a few weeks then got bored. Nintendo literally has nothing to offer me anymore.
>bu but muh mario
I've been playing mario games since like 1992. I'm fucking tired of it.
but there is good news, the NX is the final death rattle, with them putting the last of their strength into making 50 million units and forcing them out by the end of 2016, so we won't have to watch them die for much longer
I feel exactly the opposite. The only thing that gets a decent crowd reaction is something like shenmue or ff7 remake. Directs have no cons at all unless you really care about crowd reaction, which no one should. All the matters is the immediate and lasting response on the internet.
