Well, in the eyes of all of my Xbox Gamer friends, Nintendo's conference was much better than MS and Sony's, and that they're really interested in the WiiU.

...Funny how us avid followers of the industry react differently to almost everything, huh?

I'd say the 3DS Software Showcase was about on par with the Wii U Conference, as there weren't any surprises.
The Pre-E3 Nintendo Direct was where all the excitement was.
They clearly focused E3 on the games coming out this year, and are saving all future unannounced games for another time.
I'm fine with that, as when I look through the upcoming 3DS and Wii U game, the one thing that comes to mind is how am I ever going to pay for it all?
Save the next wave of games after I get through some of these.
Gonna be a big Nintendo three months off at the end of the year for me.

I know, right? It was almost depressing reading peoples' reactions to the conference. Yeah, I would've liked to have seen Animal Crossing and a new Zelda for 3DS, but it didn't happen tonight and Fire Emblem was confirmed to come to North America right after the conference. Talk about great expectations.

No different here it's just I'm either just as or slightly less excited about the Wii U then I was before E3. Ubisoft won E3, Nintendo was the best out of the big three and the Wii U was the the best piece of hardware. Doesn't mean that Nintendo did well though because the bar was pretty damn low this year.

Both Mario 'and' Zelda have been taking center stage as of late. We need a new Punch-Out!!, StarTropics 2 and F-Zero(The Mini game tease in Nintendo Land will totaly tide me over until then. :D ) No more spoiled rotten baby negativity from me, I'm absolutely pumped for the Wii U. I'll be even more thrilled if Ubisoft announces wii remote pointer controls as an alternate control scheme( I promise I'll never say that again haha) for ZombiU, that will totaly make my mondo day bud!

This news was more exciting than the 3DS software showcase today:

........ and that's with me thinking that Paper Mario is probably the game I'm most looking forward to playing out of everything shown

The whole thing was a colossal disappointment from a software perspective. I'm fine with the hardware, controller & like the Miiverse but there were no games for me at either conference. Being a long time devoted Nintendo fan I'm very disappointed to say that there is not one game that I would buy for Wii U at launch and no games were shown, for the 3DS, that interest me. They missed the mark with me unfortunately.

I'm surprised how many of those comments are kind towards Nintendo and the Wii U.

All this did was reinforce that E3 isn't that important and need to focus on more than videogames.

I'm not. The Wii U is a great system and pretty much all of the complaining about Nintendo at E3 is the lack of 2013 talk. People want to buy the Wii U but they want to know what we can expect beyond the launch window.

Currently we have no idea and it could potentially be very depressing. I hope it isn't and I expect it won't be but.... we don't have anything concrete to say otherwise.

Yeah but were getting two a point where the big 3 could honestly drop E3 and keep it going. I mean look at 3 things

1) E3 stands for Electronic Entertainment and that falls under a lot of a lot of stuff

2) Look at comic con while comics are still big the news from you here the most is non comic related.

I'm not expecting the Durango or Orbits to be announced at E3. I'm expecting them to be shown before than at E3

E3 is a trade show first and foremost and is aimed at 3 people. Shareholders,The Press, and then us. I mean look at this E3 a lot of the headlines for nintendo are ones of being bad, while a lot of other headlines are praising the non gaming stuff.

WAT!

@Sony_70
It's interesting to watch the non-gaming media cover E3. Pretty much every time I've seen them cover E3 this year it's been "No controller! A dance game! Woah, it can be a TV remote.... oh and there's some shooting game thing for the kids". The gaming press and the gamers are looking for some new big game to steal the show. So this year if you're wandering around the gaming internets it's all about Ubisoft and the Wii U.

This was a great show for the people who won't ever be convinced to line up to get the Wii U at launch......... and not in the "zomg Wii Sports" sort of way because the non-gaming media seemed to be pretty much exclusively covering Smart Glass and Usher.....

Thinking about it, I don't think there's really anything for the Wii U to capture the "casual" audience either. Nintendo Land is going to look like a game for the Kids rather than a game for the 40-70 crowd they won over with Wii Sports. Wii Fit U is kinda that sort of thing but I don't think there's enough there that you couldn't already do on the Wii.

So it didn't impress gamers but it didn't really impress the "casual" gamer either. As much as I'm personally kinda happy they didn't do Wii Sports I think they missed an opportunity there.

Nintendo's conferences (both of them) did very little for me. I know most everything announced already. The social network bit was neat.

I like the non-gaming stuff. But then I like to be entertained. I don't care where that entertainment comes from, but I do like having options for entertainment sitting there on my console.

That AR stuff with Wonderbook especially excited me. Not so much for that product itself, but rather for future directions it can develop.

Being in the know kinda sucked this year, we knew what was coming out before they even announced it at E3. The 3DS Showcase didn't do much for me, it was just gameplay footage of games we already know about and the Wii Showcase was just awful anyway...

This E3 has been kind of disappointing.
