Nice. Nintendo needs to bring it, because MS is going all out this year it seems.

Based on what?

The only thing I've seen is that Microsoft was asked about Sony's decision to skip E3 and what Microsoft will do this year. Their answer was that E3 is as big as it was before for them, meaning no change in comparison to previous years. Some people interpreted that message as Microsoft will do something bigger this time around, because the headlines of news articles/forum threads framed it that way, so that's probably how you got that impression.



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

Well Sony wont be there, so the big third party games will be on the MS stage.

Be prepared for 45 minutes of Animal Crossing and all the new kinds of furniture you can add to your house and 5 minutes of everything else

Sounds good to me. 



I expect Nintendo's E3 to be very impressive this year, expecially on the third party side. On the first party side I expect lots of details on games that have already been teased, and maybe anouncements on a couple of new games. But I also expect a lot of third party games to be announced for Switch, including some third party exclusives.

So far, we have mostly been getting ports from third party developers, because those are fast to make. Enough time has passed though that new third party games should be coming to the Switch too. And of course I still expect more third party ports. Basically the Switch is going to get a lot more third party games this year.



Ooh gimme news on new Zelda and new pokegames.

"There was obviously some news about E3 back in the fall and we had a discussion internally of 'should we go big? Should we save some money? You know… what does that mean?'"

Spencer continued, noting that ultimately the team decided the curveball from Sony wasn't going to change Microsoft's plans.

"We just said 'No, we are going to do our thing. We’re going to go and be as big at E3 as we’ve ever been.' I love that opportunity to be with our fans and the industry."

-------------------------

I think the implication is that they were considering scaling back, but with Sony not being there they are going to go as big as usual (if not more). Certainly, I think Sony's decision will make Microsoft do more than they would have had Sony decided to present, but that's just my interpretation.

Oh, that's gonna be great. People are going to complain so hard because we know most of the 2019 line-up already. "What? Only two new titles announced and nothing for 2020?"  



Btw, who will present the E3 Direct? Bowser? It has been Reggie all those years, so he's the logical heir, but I'm not sure if his body is ready already.

How is that different from prior E3's? If anything it's MS who needs to bring out something as they've been getting plastered by the competition for the past 2 years even with big third parties on their stage.



Other than updates for Pokemon, Bayonetta 3, AC and Luigi's Mansion, I don't know what to expect. We might get a decent amount of 3rd party ports, considering it's about damn time some of them start getting their act together and put at the very least something there "ejem" Atlus "ejem".

One thing's for sure. With Sony skipping E3 and Microsoft shuffling their hardware strategy, Nintendo is going to hog all of the attention. Let's hope it's for the best.



You know it deserves the GOTY.
