    Nintendo: Analyst Tells Famitsu That Nintendo Will Attract The Most Attention At This Years E3 Conference

    [​IMG]

    Eiji Maeda, senior analyst for SMBC has told Japanese gaming bible Famitsu that he expects Nintendo to attract the most attention at this years E3 event. To be honest this won’t be too difficult as Nintendo has already announced that it’s showing off its highly anticipated successor to the Nintendo Wii at the event along with a plethora of games. Nintendo will also be revealing some brand new 3DS titles along with upcoming games such as Kid Icarus and Super Mario 3D. We should also see a lot more of The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword for Wii.

    “Nintendo is definitely the company attracting the most attention at E3 this year, their Wii successor in particular. The Wii was a success because of the make-people-smile aspect of it that is such a key part of Nintendo’s goals, so it’s likely the new system will follow similar lines,” Maeda said. “Networking and online communication has become a vital part of any home system, and I think they will offer some kind of new service related to that. The Wii presented a comparatively large number of hurdles to getting online, and I think Nintendo will try to up the percentage of connected consoles with the new system.”

    “Nintendo aims to sell 16 million 3DS systems in 2011, and they’re going to need to introduce titles that can bring them toward that goal,” he said. “Some of the titles they’ve announced, like Mario, Mario Kart and Animal Crossing, will pretty much have to come out within this year, and the 3DS’s E3 presence will likely revolve around those titles. It’ll be a platform for Nintendo to re-emphasize the 3DS’s abilities.”

    No...duh? They have new hardware. New hardware is ALWAYS the biggest talk of any E3.

    Nintendo's giving a challenge sort of a thing.

    I mean challenging that they will be the most attractive part.

    Nintendo might steal quite a lot of spotlight in E3...

    but the most? I find it a little unlikely...

    Remember... NGP details will also be revealed, and that's when the Sony fanboys start trashing Nintendo (no offense).

    Sony is a tattle-tron about its hacked and being hacked sites and softwares.

    More like
    Nintendo: 3DS, 3DS, 3DS, Wii+DS, Café.
    Microsoft: Dashboard, Kinnect, Non-Kinnect, Dashboard.
    Sony: PS3P, PS3P, "Comedian" *a*, PS3, PS3P.

    Of course Nintendo will get the most attention.
    Home consoles top portables, but that's not why.

    The games to announce already have E3 on Nintendo's hands, then they have the 3DS online services and the Café. There's no way they don't attract the most attention.

    Sony may show some NGP stuff but will probably spend most of the time apologizing and revealing some kind of cheap repay for the users' credit card numbers being posted online.

    About Microsoft, I dunno. I have this feeling they will announce some kind of thing for PC gaming.

    how much longer can they keep this going? last year 3ds and now wii2... unless they improve greatly on the systems, it may just turn out to be like e3 2 years ago. Games only from them is not what they are made of.

    It would seem that Nintendo has the upper hand here but I'm concerned about the lack of information from Microsoft....maybe they have something up their sleeves

    Yes, for some strange reason I feel that we might be pleasantly surprised by Microsoft. Maybe a portable system?

    I don't see Microsoft releasing a new console soon. The Xbox 360 still has plenty of steam to keep going.

    It's going to be hard to top Reggie's harem from last year.

    Sony's gonna announce the Black Ops Map Pack, Escalation, I reckon. Maybe Microsoft will announce the one after that just to steal thunder. But I only ever pay attention to the Ninty corner anyway.

    I can't see anything interesting Microsoft can talk about besides maybe Gears of War 3. Sony has lots to address in regards to PSN. Nintendo really has the most stuff they can potentially cover.

    I reckon this year's conference to be Nintendo > Sony > Microsoft.

    Who really cares who attracts the most attention? We're getting more B and A rank games to look forward to; everyone wins.
