Somehow the media has convinced some readers that the big N is "bowing out" of E3, and committing to such an act because they can't compete with what Sony and Microsoft are going to show.

Well, to clear things up for the misinformed, Nintendo is not bowing out of E3. At all. In actuallity, the company is going to be doing what, in my opinion, Sony and Microsoft should be doing, and that is bringing a focused presence to E3. Why would the company do this? Considering the Wiiu's current identity crisis, it is safe to say that Nintendo can't afford to go the glory route this year like the other two can. You see, often enough with a big and elaborate presentation a company's main idea gets lost through a number of distractions. To reiterate, if Ninty did a big show this year we'd possibly be too busy discussing Miyamoto being dressed in a ridiculously tailored Link costume to focus on what games are coming. A smaller and more focused presentation would be the only way to finally get the point of the Wiiu across.

Conclusively, what I'm basically saying is that Nintendo will be at E3 this year, and the company's presence will be about clarity, not competition.

Microsoft and Sony both have consoles to show off. Nintendo doesn't. Plus, it's not that Microsoft and Sony won't have tech demos like Nintendo's set up around E3. It's just that Nintendo doesn't have the element of surprise and anticipation that Microsoft and Sony does. Nintendo could either pay a lot of money for a centre stage slot and risk embarrassing themselves, or not pay the money for the slot and not embarrass themselves. Excuse my generalisation, but that seems to be what's happening at the moment.

Nintendo has heard two issues since launch: no games and wide ignorance of the hardware. So then with E3 where do they want the focus from journalists to be put? On a third presentation about Wii U and a peppering of game trailers? Or get them off to an early start actually playing games and infact all they can then report on about Nintendo is the games and demos and not the quality of a presentation and whether it won against the competition.

So they will sit watch tech demos from the competition but actually will have seen and demo'd games from Nintendo even before that. Now that's a great plan I think.
