It would be neat, but it would also require a lot of prep work on their part, all while likely delaying the games' release. I'm not sure they think it's worth it.


I don't see why that would be the case. They would just be taking the E3 Demos and putting them all on one app. It wouldn't delay anything.



Well, this is new.

E3 demos are notoriously unstable: crashes, bugs, and other major technical defects are common, even to the point of occasionally bricking consoles. Simply put, the things are too far from a finished product to be reliable, even though the publisher pulls small teams away specifically to craft these demos.

That's the reason why they limited them to Best Buys, with trained presenters, last year. It would do a lot of harm to release those same demos and have the public experience those defects without the filter of a Nintendo employee to both iron out problems and explaint the situation. Doing what you propose would require them to create demos that are good enough to be released, unsupervised, to the public, and that involves a lot more work.

That must be Reggie.

Nope, too thin.

Look where he is, has obviously been working out.



Reggie takes off his hoodie and he hands out a smartphone. The camera zooms in and we see a brand new trailer before E3. Millions of Little Mac fans become instantly excited then disappointed because its not what they expected. But, TreeTurtle is excited as the reveal is StarTropics III. The game gets an instant GOTY 2015 from every website.

You know what would be hype? Live E3 Demos playable at home. Nintendo would be the kings of good PR for for all of E3.

That would be such a brilliant idea


Would kill their servers and the eshop though. It would be briliant if its a single download with required online and deactivation after E3. It combines all the demos from the floor show. I'd love this.

Still don't agree. I've never heard anything about any of the Best Buy demos crashing or being unplayable. I don't think there was anything in those that required a supervisor other than the fact that Nintendo wanted to make sure people knew how to play the games.

Well you can continue to disagree, but from what I've been told the things I'm saying are pretty well known amongst E3 attendees, so.. *shrug* Maybe the people who've said these things are lying, but I have no reason to believe that.

I've followed E3 for years, and I've never seen that be the case, at least not with Nintendo's demos.

Also eShop demos don't do anything for non-Wiii U owners.
