Sounds good. I'll be watching on [E3.Nintendo.Com] again this year. Worked great last year and they had lots of extra footage going on even after the conference was over which was a nice surprise.



Neram said:

Spike TV.. really? Somehow I get the feeling that people who generally watch that channel won't care about Nintendo's E3 press conference.



Whopper744 said:

hmm..figuring out ways to watch while i am stuck here at work...may have to get a twitter just for this...or maybe I can just keep up with it on facebook. I doubt I will get away with watching it live on my phone for that long.



C-Olimar said:

Do we get MTV2 or Spike TV on Sky in the UK? I don't think we get Spike but I know we get MTV, what about MTV2? Will it even be on TV in the UK?



BenAV said:

Pretty sure I'm going to be watching it live from EB Games at 3 in the morning here in Australia.
Beats watching it on my unreliable Internet.



shake_zula said:

@C-Olimar We don't get Spike, and MTV2 was replaced by MTV Rocks a couple of years ago. I'd also like to know if it's going to be televised at all here, as that would be much nicer than streaming it on my laptop.

I have never been so excited for E3 in my life. And I said that last year! Holy cow, it's getting close...



shingi_70 said:

Its that time of year again. IGN is flinging to be streaming it sp I can view it on my xbox but will keep the e3 website open invade we see corbs again.



Xilef said:

I guess i will watch it on then, like last year. Hopefully it won't lag in the beggining. Me and my brother almost missed the entire Zelda Orchestra.



Emaan said:

Can't wait for E3 this year! I guess I'll watch it on TV this time



SMW said:

LMAO. I was just telling my friends yesterday that Nintendo always waits until the last minute to update their E3 page. Things change! Last year it seemed like the site didn't get updated until the night before.

With them being early and so open this year, I'm sure it will be an amazing E3!



mamp said:

Good thing I have my own CPU at work not missing it this time, but judging by what they said in the Bonus Round on gametrailers it looks like Microsoft's press conference ain't worth watching. They brought up some good points about the Wii U though so I'm kind of excited to watch.



Nin-freak said:

I don't know about anyone else, but I'd rather watch this live than the Super Bowl!



Token_Girl said:

Can't decide if I will:
A: Watch this on my phone at lunch (not sure how optimized the live video will be for smartphones.
B: Have NL liveblog up at work.
C: Wait until I get home to see any news.



Super-Mario-Fan said:

im probably,maybe am gonna watch this but still don't know where. probably on the TV... never mind.. ill be in school at that time.



BluTyGer said:

Can't wait I'll be watching at, and have nintendolife open in another window.



Knuckles said:

Did Nintendo post videos to the eshop/Nintendo Video last year? I was wondering if I could watch the footage there, hopefully download to my system



ShadJV said:

@Knuckles They did have trailers downloadable on the eShop, so I wouldn't be surprised if they did that again. What I really want are demos. Seriously Nintendo, give us some 3DS demos that you have at E3! Just a few, please?



TheDreamingHawk said:

If Nintendo doesn't put any demos/ E3 videos on the Eshop to download, I swear I will explode into flames. Glad that us directTV users (In the US) can finally record E3 after they dropped G4.



Urbanhispanic said:

Damn it! I'll be working when the show comes on. I guess I'll have to read what everyone will already know by the end of the day when I get home



acelect24 said:

I missed it last year because of a crappy internet connection! (128kbps =P ), and i had to download it (which took a week)... Looking forward to watching it live this year!



Azaris said:

I shall watch it on youtube that way i don't have to wake up at 9am though if it turns out im up at 9 am anyways ill watch it live.



Onett said:

Nintendo's E3 website will do me fine. I'll be watching from my work computer.



ClockworkMario said:

I want to know will Wii U print money. Also their website didn't work using Chrome last year, so I had to resort to that crappy IE. I hope they've fixed it this time.

With all those oppotunities, I would be ignorant to miss out now that I'm on vacation. The big day is approaching fast!
