On the other hand, they've got another two systems they can pretty much ignore.
3DS got far too little time last year, and I'm worried that'll happen again. With only 60 minutes, I think the only split that works is this:

10 Wii+DS+filler
20 3DS
30 Wii U

But that's only barely enough time to show everything they need to show for Wii U, since I would expect that they're going to announce a shitton of games and have a few on-stage demos. Wii U should have 40 minutes ideally.

Of course, Nintendo could fix this issue by killing that damn NDA. >_>; Maybe we'll get lucky and it ends up taking an extra 10-15 minutes.

Expect a Tuesday night roundtable bomb. I'd count on it.

I'd say less than that for Wii and DS, really.

We already know some:

-Assassin's Creed III
-Rayman Legends
-Killer Freaks
-Ghost Recon Online
-Darksiders II
-Metro: Last Light
-Aliens: Colonial Marines
-Dragon Quest X
-Ninja Gaiden 3: Still Sucks Edition
-Project CARS
-"Tekken" (I'm going to predict Tag 2 at launch, and TxSF when that finally gets made)

Arkham City and DiRT apparently too, although... eh, I doubt they're still coming out. DiRT 4, probably.
As for Metro last night it may have been cancelled for all we know, given THQ's financial situation sadly.

By the way I'm expecting many new announcements beside of the one on this list, whilst I wouldn't be too much surprised if some of the games already announced last year should be eventually cancellled; maybe they've actually something bigger and during the WiiU announcement threw just a handful of ports, to keeep secretive and not to spoil third parties biggest titles, that are going to be disclosed only this year.

Basically, there's almost nothing to talk about for Wii and DS. Just Pokèmon and Kirby. Then, 30 minutes about 3DS, and 30 about Wii U.
But still...they made everyone excited with just 15 minutes of 3DS presentation in 2010, and this time they have already shown the platform, the main features.
...And still, in 2010, only Kid Icarus Uprising has been shown. Nintendogs got a logo. And then...Paper Mario, StarFox, Mario Kart, Animal Crossing and FREAKING ZELDA OOT REMAKE have been announced after the conference.

Why do people expect sales talk? We haven't got those since 2009. And the 3DS isn't doing that well in NA, so there's really nothing to brag about.

With the amount of Wii U info they need to show, they probably won't show 3rd party games other than a sizzle reel or something similar. Other publishers have their own conferences where they can show their Wii U games.

Yeah, in 2010 they didn't say anything about sales. And at those times there were still big numbers from both Wii and DS. Neither in 2009, IIRC, right? Or at least, a very little part of the conference.
Certainly, they won't talk about them either this year, with Wii dead and 3DS ww doing rather well, with a pretty good first year in NA too, but...that needs to improve to high levels.

I think they'll get even luckier by having their products covered extensively by the press over the course of a few days.

lol, there won't be any Wii or DS anymore. That's a given.
