Thing is, the internet backlash led to Nintendo's best retail year so far, so they are under no obligation to appease the internet. However, they did acknowledge that the old E3 was a "mistake," which means a lot coming from a company that is so traditionally immune to public opinion
Either way, the internet backlash was from people who were displeased with their Wiis at the time anyway. Meaning people who weren't swayed by Brawl or Mario Kart, and who literally wanted to see a new Mario, Zelda, or Metroid, or a new brown-grey-mature IP. These people were the ones who weren't entirely on board with Wii anyway, and who just want Nintendo to be a clone of Microsoft and Sony
So really, they could go either way. This year proved that they don't need blockbuster releases to float the sales, but the coming year does show a lot more promise in the software department
