I'm not expecting too much. I just don't want it to be like last year. That was terrible for Nintendo.

Formally called brewsky before becoming the lovable, adorable Yoshi.

Yeah, but Iwata got hurt so bad in that fight he had to go to the hospital and get surgery.

It's a investor briefing guys....I don't think they'll announce anything important. Probably will be a few old guys talking pooooooooop to each other while Iwata and Miyamoto looks at each other and grin.

Actually I'm interested in a number of things (i an accountant though)

Are they making a profit?

Are Amiibo printing money?

Will they revise their 3ds and Wii U sales forecasts?

Plans on other VC - i think the DS VC was first talked about at one of these

They usually have an upcoming release schedule, so:

Is FE x SMT still on there?

Upcoming Wii U release order (of announced games)

Is the new FE on the schedule?

So, although its no Direct and i dont expect new game announcements, there are a number of things we can likely deduce or learn from these briefings

The most important thing for me is to get the update release schedule (for NoE in my case), which they attache as a supplement to the financial info. While the release schedules never are that detailed at these meetings, they sometimes give good release window info.

AFAIK, these meetings have never reveal any new games, but the Q&As (the day after the financial briefing) have sometimes hinted on new stuff.

I agree, still very concerned about a possible EU game drought this first half especially for Wii U.

These investor meetings are always so interesting. A year ago, we actually got our first hint dropped that Club Nintendo would be drastically changed or replaced. We just didn't realize it until last week.

Prepare for New Wii U announcement.

Wouldn't be the most exciting news in my opinion. For the past two console generations, console redesigns/rereleases have had features stripped from the original.

Wii redesigns were terrible, but the PS3 Slim was a much better machine than the original $599 behemoth.

The 40 different Xbox 360 SKUs confuse me, so I dunno about them.

How did no one see that coming? I feel like we should've put two and two together on that one when they started talking about a new consumer loyalty program.

We already knew the Digital Deluxe Promotion was ending at the end of 2014 so the new consumer loyalty program could've been a replacement for that which maybe included 3DS as well.

I think it is because it's the genre that is niche. If it wasn't for the Zelda skin, I doubt it would've ever reached a million sales.

There was more but lets not dwell on that...

The idea that someone is upset that they can't watch an investors meeting on a live web stream is extremely funny to me.

Its so we can troll the investors who insist on Nintendo going mobile with their IPs. We folks of the internet are a resourceful bunch and it wouldn't take long to before we spot those against Nintendo and track them down. Address, blogs, social profiles, muahahahahaha. Erm.... I mean, its just a boring meeting.. Who wants to watch those..........
