Nintendo conferences are so hit and miss...

This year could be amazing like E3 2010, or it could be an utter disappointment like E3 2008 or E3 2011.

It all hinges on how Wii U is presented and if they have a few big budget AAA games that take advantage of the hardware (like a next-gen mario or zelda).

Pikmin and NSBM ain't gonna cut it, and I'm afraid this is all they will have.

Very excited for all 3 conferences. Too bad I have school so I can't watch them live. Well, except for the Sony one.

I hope Nintendo spends the least amount of time as possible on the Wii and DS.

I have exams around E3 time but then again I live in the southern hemisphere and those exams are actually midyear exams not end of year exams.

That being said my exam timetable works out so that staying up late to watch the conference is a non-issue. :D

Even though it's the least hyped of the three games, do you think they would announced Pandora's Tower here as part of their Wii sendoff?

Different tastes for different people, I've been waiting to see this game for 4 years. It's all I need to see.

I hope they pace themselves like they did in their 2010 conference. I thought that particular showing was well structured. It moved quickly and showed a lot of content. It did slow down when the 3DS was revealed, but I feel that it was enjoyable as a whole.

Well yeah you have a good point... but I am moving from a "citified" Caribbean Island to an actual heaven for a few days.

And yeah... Hurricane GAF! I just remembered I never updated the last Hurricane Season thread with the latest systems XD

It is kinda strange. Last year's super hype was warranted because we had no earthly idea what Nintendo was going to show. Now we know most of the information which is that the Wii U is a console that focuses on a ~6" touch screen tablet play. Power is roughly close to PS360. Now all the info thats left to get at E3 will be some games for the system, the price, and some information to fill the gaps.

It got rather quiet/boring near the tail end of the season. We're exactly 1 month away now!

We have had information on this very forum in the Wii Spec thread from folk with inside information that disprove those claims. Is it confirmed? No, but Wii U isn't a PS360 with more RAM. Darksiders II will look the same across all platforms but that doesn't mean the WiiU = PS360, even though we'll have to listen to such things for the first several months of WiiUs existence.

My mistake. I've seen more reports that it is closer to the PS360 than otherwise, but I guess it's still anyones guess. However, knowing Nintendo, I doubt E3 will answer any questions on that front. Nintendo still has the same mantra as they did for the Wii which is that "Specs don't matter, the game play is most important" so I wouldn't be surprised if we don't get specs until someone outside Nintendo strips a retail Wii U

If you just want it to play the first party titles that come with it not at all.

Consoles are about games after all.

We also have information on this very forum that echo claims of PS360 quality. I haven't been following the varying accounts in detail, but the impression I got was that it's still very uncertain.
