    It's not official though, it's just some member updating. If it was official it would be on the front page done by a member that is either staff or of considerable reputation.

    There is no need for this seeing Fast does it better.

    Please be better than Sony's and Microsoft's! Those two were so bad, it made me sad!

    Wow nice. Nintendi.

    However, this is likely to be moved to GGD.

    Soulx, there is a second stream tomorrow. You might want to add that in as well.

    So-far they showed... uhm... f*ck-all on the pre-recorded video, but I'm counting on some cool content on their actual conference. So-far Ubi showed more WiiU content then Nintendo has. Sorry, I'm not interested in Wara Wara or MiiVerse - I'd like to see some games.

    I can't wait for Nintendo's conference.

    Besides the fact that they announce the best stuff, they have such an old-school feel to their conferences.

    Last year they had the symphony doing the Zelda songs, and they just do whatever they want. Meanwhile, Microsoft thinks, "E3 is coming?? We can't have a presentation without Usher!!!!"

    Edit:

    Also, have they really said anything about Pokemon Black and White 2?

    I'm guessing something about that will be shown either today or the software day.
