EEDAR analyst Jesse Divnich has told Eurogamer what we all pretty much know; Nintendo won E3 hands down. It wasn’t just Divinch who was impressed by Nintendo’s offerings, but also outspoken analyst Micheal Pachter who genuinely backed up Jesse Divinchs claim. Did Nintendo win E3 for you, or were you more impressed by Sony’s and Microsoft’s offerings?
“Nintendo won, hands down,” EEDAR analyst Jesse Divnich told Eurogamer. “They had great content and a well-executed presentation. No celebrities, no famous rock bands, just straight gaming.”
“Nintendo won with a very cool console innovation and great 3DS software,” Michael Pachter, Wedbush Morgan analyst, told us.
“People are still skeptical about core Kinect,” Pachter went on, “and with good reason. I had them in third place from a hardcore perspective, first from a business perspective.”
Which leaves Sony “in the middle”. “PSN apology was great,” said Pachter. “Vita price also great.” But otherwise “nothing to get excited about”.
Piers Harding-Rolls, analyst at Screen Digest told Eurogamer that “they all had their strengths”.
Harding-Rolls elaborated: “Nintendo showed its strong ability to innovate and to take home entertainment into new directions; Sony showed its openness to adopting new business models and online games services and delivered on PS Vita pricing; Microsoft delivered a leading mass market content and non-games media message which positions it strongly for this stage of the Xbox 360 cycle.”
I agree. I’m not sold on core kinect. I have all 3 systems but I would rather play with the controller than kinect. Nintendo made me feel like a kid again
Nintendo did very good back there
i hope they stick with their words that all these 3ds games are coming out this year
Luigi’s Mansion 2 isn’t slated for this year. Your comment does apply to the other 4 key ones at the conference, though.
Nintendo’s 3DS software lineup as well as those few Wii and DS gems that went unmentioned in the conference are what did it for me. The Wii U was exciting and all, but it’s still over a year away. I was more interested in what I will actually be playing over the next 6 months and I feel like Nintendo delivered on that front. Luigi’s Mansion 2 was a complete surprise and the best thing for me personally to come out of E3 period. Kirby Wii, Kirby: Mass Attack, Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword, Super Mario 3DS, Mario Kart 3DS, Paper Mario 3DS, Resident Evil: Revelations, Legend of Zelda: OOT, & Star Fox 64 3D all spell good times ahead.
Two years in a row! \^_^/
I’m a PS3 fan as well but Nintendo is my number one and always has been. I’m not yet impressed by the Move’s mimicry of the Wii and no aspect of the Xbox has never appealed to me. I hope Nintendo goes for a 3-year winning streak next E3 by showing us some awesome Wii U and 3DS software.
*meant to say ever. No aspect of Xbox EVER appealed to me. Stupid double negative *grumble grumble*
He could’ve meant ‘no part of Xbox has never appealed’ meaning the Xbox gives him very small amounts of appeal.
I don’t get why everyone is saying they had such a great 3DS lineup. Weren’t all those games showcased a year ago? (except Luigi’s Mansion which was awesome) Forgive me but I was expecting a bit more from Nintendo on all fronts.
For me, it was a tie between Sony and Nintendo but I’m not that excited with either of them tbh.
Nintendo won because of Zelda concerts
I think Patcher was born again. Or paid off.
Whoa, hold the phone. Pachter actually said something nice about Nintendo!? I guess Satan needs to start knitting a sweater…
nintendo nailed it, from content to the way they presented everything it was very well done. Loved the way they showed off the upcoming 1st party games for the 3ds with the projection thing that was sick. and the wii U well the wii U was just plain awesome especially when they teased us with the jaw dropping clip of zelda in hd
I wouldn’t say “hands down”. Sony offered a great deal of information and variety, in addition to the well-priced PSV. However, the 3DS lineup was good, but I’m not sold on the Wii U just yet.
i never even watch sony’s and microsoft’s presentations :p but i have no doubt nintendo did win hands down.
