And then he just repeats that for most of it before saying Nov. 18, 2012

Anyone wanna devote the next six pages to price and date guesses?

November 11, 2012 : $299

You speculation thread kids have probably already spent thousands of pages doing this, though.

Yeah, I hope, definitely didn't seem like they planned last years very well, but I'm sure they learned from their mistakes.

Iwata said it wouldn't be and Nintendo don't announces prices at E3 and generally don't announce dates outside of a specific quarter either.

Date and time confirmed (I like how this is always the tuesday at 09:00AM local, you can pretty much anticipate it one year ahead), and now we are in May, so 5 weeks~ to go: Hype is slowly building! (4 crazy threads aside).
Very soon, all of this is finally gonna be about games :)

Shortest w/ the most surprises vs. Longest with the least amount of surprises.

At least Sony conferences have been way better than Microsoft ones lately.

That won't happen.

Only way you won't get games is if Nintendo does not properly attempt to curry favor with long term holdouts on N consoles. If third parties think hey can make money on Wii U, they'll be there. It's pretty simple.

Happy to oblige. The image is updated on the same link, so you might need to refresh if you don't see it there:

If anybody else wants any additions, let me know. Ookami-kun, you can use AWST to match your time zone it seems. Let me know where you are and I can add its name to that row. Oh, it's in your profile, The Philippines. Not big enough to switch the order around (I like keeping the Aussie ones grouped), but I'll probably add the name to that row...

Edit: Actually, on second thought, given it's called PST I think I'm going to have to leave it out. It could potentially confuse some people, given how so many of the times are announced in 'PST' even though they are talking about US PDT at this time of year.

To be honest, I've always been a tad surprised that nobody in Hawaii has ever asked for their zone. Is there any interest?

It's such crap that they always do it in the morning on a Tuesday when everyone is working. Why can't this shit be at night? <_<;

I'm hoping for new IP from Nintendo & 3rd parties and not just a showcase of a bunch of ports :/ *predicts Excite game*

It's normal that despite not having a true E3 high in Odin knows how long, I'm still looking more forward to E3 than Christmas right?

I am always blown away at how amazing the gifs and images are in the conference threads. It is also without fail a yearly highlight of GAF at both its best and worst, which makes it worth almost all of the inevitable letdowns that occur

So yeah, I guess you could say that my body is frickin' Reggie, mofo

So will I. I actually love getting up in the middle of the night for stuff like E3, the same with major sports events. Just makes it feel a little extra special to me.

Hmm, I might have to do something about that. Never saw somebody make the mistake before...

Edit: OK, this should hopefully do it. Refresh if you don't see wide colour bars:

What do they even have to show this year? Rising, the new Kojima game, and...?
It's ridiculous how much they depend on Kojima Productions these days.
The probably delayed Silent Hill: Book of Memories just so they'd have something to round out the show.
