Will Nintendo do a live press conference for E3?

Post by Zero Revolution on Sat Jan 09, 2016 9:41 pm

So Nintendo is planning to unveil NX this year. Many are expecting that it will be revealed at E3, at least fully, as it's possible it could be shown off beforehand. Now Nintendo has been doing a digital E3 event for the past 3 years rather than doing a live show or press conference as most companies do for E3. However, none of these years have they actually shown off brand new hardware. Do you think they may end up doing a live show this year because of the NX reveal?

Personally I prefer the Digital Event. However, I do have to say that a console reveal just wouldn't feel right being done digitally. I feel a live show is needed this year so they can show off NX and get people hyped for the new console.

They detailed the Wii U in a Direct 2 days before E3. So I can see them doing the same thing for the NX while then invite the media to a closed door event.I can also see them doing a small show for the NX and having a Nintendo Digital on Tuesday for the NX games.

^ That was 2012 though. The Wii U had already been revealed for over a year at that point, it was first revealed at E3 2011, which was before Directs even existed. I'm talking about the full on reveal here.

It's been 3 years of them doing the Digital Event now. I believe they will continue to do the Digital Event from now on. So they could reveal new hardware like the NX that way, and possibly have a booth at E3 to show it off if possible. I can't seem them not having a Digital Event. While showing it off at a press conference can benefit them, interest investors and such, I believe the Digital Event fulfills that same purpose. So is there a need for a press conference if they do the Digital Event instead? I prefer the Digital Events anyways so I don't mind them not having the press conference. There's no risk of technical difficulties live on stage, that could be a disaster.

^ On the other hand, they could have technical difficulties on the live stream for the Digital Event, like in 2013 where more than half the people watching weren't able to see most of it. :p

But yeah I agree, I do prefer the Digital Event, and it is the direction Nintendo has been going. But I really do think this year needs to be an exception, NX being revealed through a Digital Event just seems weird to me.

For all we know Nintendo could do both a live & digital event showing more of what the NX does at the digital event. But knowing Nintendo it'll probably be shown off at just a Direct.

That's true, nothing is going to go smoothly all the time. That problem in 2013 must have been frustrating. Having the Digital Event be recorded like it is and then streaming live will prevent mishaps during segments like where the host is speaking for example. Sure there could be issues when it is streamed live but it won't affect what was shown. Like if the person speaking accidentally messes their line up, that wouldn't happen in a Digital Event.

^ You know, maybe that's what they're planning to change. Maybe it'll no longer be streamed live, just an update video posted at a specific time. It's already pre-recorded anyway. (although I much prefer seeing it live)
