    Nintendo issued a press release yesterday regarding their E3 press conference.



    http://press.nintend...es.jsp?id=33704

    Hm, it seems the press conference will finally be on a channel I own (Spike TV) instead of the other specialty channels. I guess I'll watch it there.

    Will GameTrailers broadcast Nintendo Conference as well as Sony and Microsoft live like last year?

    Spike and MTV2, huh? I'm surprised it's not going to be on G4. Then again, G4's basically just Spike 2.

    Wow, I didn't realize how close we were to E3.

    Looking forward to it. I'll be watching it through the normal link. Either that or Facebook.

    I remember reading that there is going to be two roundtables after the on stage presentation, one specifically for first party titles and another one for third parties. Could this mean that there won't be enough time to present everything within the on stage hour?

    Another new thing is that they will have a system developer discussion about the Wii U hardware, explaining that the Wii U is supposed to compete with next gen and not current perhaps?

    "Spike TV or MTV2" this makes me happy since I no longer have g4. Which I only bothered with for e3 in the first place. >>

    Anyone know if the software one is going to be a separate show on stage or just when they start the booths on the E3 floor? I'd love there to be two shows, an hour doesn't seem enough for showing the Wii U as well as any Wii U/3DS software and no doubt the first 10 minutes would be "hey look at how well we did with Wii/DS/3DS" followed by graphs.

    It's a showcase of the titles announced the day before I guess, the important thing to know is that they will have their roundtables going into details with both first party and third party games this year, basically showing stuff that didn't make it into their on stage presentation.
    Hopefully they'll keep financial talk to a minimum and give out that kind of information at the roundtable instead.

    You know TV coverage for E3 (and gaming in general) is in a rut when a move to Spike TV and MTV2 is a significant step up.

    For just watching the conference, there's nothing wrong with those networks considering the actual conference will be streamed without commercials and commentary. After the conference ends, there's no reason to stick with those shit networks.

    Point is, we need a dedicated gaming network; it's sad that we live in a reality where Spike and MTV2 are hosting...anything video game related, especially E3.

    Awesome. About time E3 coverage was on more channels than just G4.

    We're broadcasting LIVE and on PlayStation 3, Youtube, Ustream, PlayStation.Com and PlayStation Home

    Thankfully the above is the case (or perhaps not as the last few years have demoed nothing of great note that did not get leaked beforehand and if I had an excuse to miss it I would have welcomed it).

    Back on topic

    Monday, June 4
    Microsoft - 9:30 AM
    Electronic Arts - 1:00 PM
    Ubisoft - 3:00 PM
    Sony - 6:00 PM

    Tuesday, June 5
    Nintendo - 9:00 AM plus that Wednesday thing.

    That seems to be pretty much the same layout as last year give or take an half a hour or a hour in terms of times. I have managed to get in on a stream these last few years but nice to know they have some stuff for those that can not (other conferences anticipating feed problems with live feeds have had alternative methods for years now).

    Not really awesome. Because G4 was supposed to be the go to channel for everything gaming. But now they are only interested in showing cops and cheaters all day long. if the channel doesnt go off the air soon then idk what they're doing

    I haven't watched G4 in ages because I don't have it anymore. Spike comes with the basics here.
