Dont really think they would have looked past it. Shaming Metroid yet again, bastardizing Animal Crossing with Amiibo nonsense, and Mario Mario Mario oh look more Mario. Nintendo fans were pushed to the edge today.

E3 2011 was good for them. That's the year the Wii U was unveiled.

I rest my case.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

Not true. The 4 pillars are the minimum to make Nintendo fans happy.

An announcement of a Square Enix RPG or a big name 3rd party game would have done the trick too.

I remember the Capcom announcement for the GC. That did the trick. REmake, RE0, and RE4 all exclusive (or at least timed) for the Cube.

add me, the more the merrier.

I disagree with your theory.

This is my problem with what Nintendo did: they chose to give us a variety of low budget soulless spinoffs instead of fewer but more ambitious games.

You need to have some kind of marketshare to get the third party support. 

If Capcom knew the GameCube was going to sell that poorly they likely never would've made that deal in the first place (as evidence by them trying to weasel out of it later).

Truth is though would it really be smart to do this?

Wii U is going to be their worst selling console, and it's pretty much been a disaster from day 1. 

At some point you have to cut your losses and say enough is enough, and even though as a gamer that hurt, I understand it from a business POV.

I never said any of those scenarios are realistic. I am talking about appeasing the fanbase.

Also I think a new console Fire Emblem would have stopped the bleeding and that is realistic.

Now you are clearly lying to yourself.

It's not about the games they didn't show, it's about the games they did show.

Moral of the story: Had Nintendo shown a new trailer for Zelda, you sheep would have gladly looked past everything else. After all, the four pillars are all you really care about.

Having a zelda trailer would have actually shown a game that could compete with halo 5, recore, horizon, black ops 3, or uncharted 4. Without that what were we left with? A subpar showing of star fox, a december reveal of xenoblade, spinoffs to games that we wanted (metroid, animal crossing, paper mario). Mario maker seems to be the only game from that showing that has the hype to be a success; the rest were scrambling to show something new. Not something you want to see right after sony had one of their biggest e3 conferences.

It didn't even have to be zelda wii u. A proper metroid, paper mario, pokemon, f-zero, 3d mario, animal crossing, etc.  could have prevented this from being the worst of Nintendo, but noooo..... its better we get spin offs.

Gotta keep consumer confidence up though, otherwise Sega 2.0
