Nintendo Is Skipping PAX East 2014

Nintendo of America have confirmed today that they won’t be attending this year’s PAX East event, which is taking place April 11th to April 13th. Nintendo of America has always had a presence at PAX East so it comes as a surprise that they won’t be attending this year.

“Interacting directly with our fans and letting them play our games firsthand is a key component of our approach. That doesn’t include PAX East this year, but we will offer our fans a variety of opportunities to get their hands on Nintendo products in 2014. Keep an eye on our social media pages for more information about where we’ll be and what you can play.” – Nintendo of America

      2. I could see that happening, actually. I mean Sony’s nearly bankrupt right now, so if Nintendo were to buy Sony, I don’t see why they couldn’t put some Nintendo games on Sony consoles.

      2. That’s exactly what I meant. Everyone would expect some big reveal on the next Smash Bros or something entirely new. Nintendo just doesn’t have anything new to show and doesn’t want to give anything away yet.

      3. Exactly, all they would bring is Mariokart 8; and probably Bayonetta 2 demo from E3 last year – the rest of the games they showed last year are all out. Since we have NOTHING between now and Mario Kart 8, there’s no way they are going to take their card out for a smaller event.

    2. Their focus well be on E3, they hardly ever attend GDC so I assume their trading one for the other, and other then smash or Mario kart their is not much to talk about, but this also pretty much confirms that we well get a direct around that time.

      Worst idea ever, you lose consumer confidence, that’s what got Sega to go 3rd-party.

      For better or worse, we’ve got the WiiU for a couple of years at least.

  4. They are giving up!!!! Near to no presence at last years E3. Nintendo Directs were then suppose to fill in the gaps for E3 but those have been few and far in between as of late with lack luster presentation at best. And more than likely no presence at E3 2014. They are just laying on their back and getting stuffed balls deep by Sony and Microsoft like a Tijuana whore and it’s just sad. Iwata you clueless piece of shit your fans are growing tired of your business impotence. I can’t wait for the next “please understand” video…

      13. I mean yeah you do gotta go back once in awhile and pay a visit to the retro classics once in awhile but we are movingly forward people. You got to remember even Nintendo though graphics where important in the nes, snes , n64 (somewhat GameCube) days. They even marketed their games and consoles that way. Nintendo had something good going both Graphics and gameplay but lost their way doing the Wii era and throw graphics out the window just during the time when innovation could really be made though modern graphics.

      14. Graphics really did matter back in those days, there was a massive and obvious gulf between the graphics of say, the SNES and the N64. The difference between PS4 and PS3 is there and visible, but it’s nowhere near so much

        Nintendo did not ‘lose their way’ in the Wii era. They kicked ass and won the generation. I’d like to see the Nintendo of 2006 back, rather than their feeble attempts to replicate it over the last couple of years.

      15. The diffitence between SNES and N64 was a big deal because it went from 2D gameplay to 3D gameplay. I think most people would agree that SNES games have aged a lot better than N64 visually.

      16. Graphics don´t matter. Never have.

        You will see that yourself when you get older that those graphically stunning games don´t always end up being the ones you remember.

        I was for example blown away by the graphics of Gremlins 2 and Dizzy back in the NES days but today i would much rather play Metroid or even Excitebike.

        I could write a looong list of games that have impressed me graphically over the years (probably way over 100 since i have been playing since 1986) but most of those games are either forgotten or have been shown by the test of time to be just average.

        The thing is when you see the best graphics ever so many times (pretty much every year) and most of those games have no lasting impact you loose interest.

    1. Things will be fine for Nintendo even if you don’t believe in god. Nintendo won’t die from one mediocre console launch and generation. Blackberry didn’t get to where they are now because of one generation and one mediocre product launch. It takes failure after failure to bring down big corps like Nintendo. And since the Wii was a giant profit machine and the 3DS is still going strong, and the Wii U is still selling, Nintendo will live to fight another round or two, or three.

    1. Chill the fuck out. 2. Obviously Nintendo has nothing to show yet besides the same old news we already know not to mention more new game developments aren’t ready to be shown publically so they’re saving it for later when the timing is right.

    So I say it again: STFU with the all so overly used “Nintendoomed” BS because its beyond old and cliché since GameCube days. You wanna know doomed? Sony losing money and Xbox still being a 3rd place DRM BS of a console when PC does everything as Xbox but more and for free. So come at me now fandorks. I’m so itching to shut you retard no lives down quick.
