So is the Developer Discussion just recorded?

Not 100% sure (asked NoA for confirmation), but I very much expect it to be.

Given the weird time, it could be a broadcast from Japan, and hopefully a teleconference.

Ian SaneMay 23, 2012

With them reporting losses recently I guess the "brag about how rich we are" segment of the conference will be cut short.  Though hopefully they don't just add that time to the "spend the most time on the game the E3 audience will be the least interested in" segment.  They should really add that time to the montage where the most interesting game in the show is passed over in a 2 second clip.

They haven't talked about sales for any large amount of time for years at the pressers. No one really does anymore at E3.

June 6th is only 14 days away. That's exactly two weeks from today.

Even with their first reported loss, they could still brag about how rich they are.  Just sayin.

ShyGuyMay 24, 2012

Maybe brag more, just to give a positive spin.

TamazoidMay 24, 2012

I don't remember any bragging about finances at last years press conference.

RABicleMay 24, 2012

Pfft, as if you will even need to watch the conference when Pietriots will be revealing the entire contents of the show on June 1.

I'm just glad Nintendo's conference is airing on Spike TV this year.  I got excited last year because they aired Microsoft's E3 presentation, and then put Nintendo's on the F#c%!NG G4 channel!  Who the hell pays for that channel by the way?

It was included in my cable package long ago, in a land far, far away. The channel itself is a joke. Hope you like all day marathons of Cheaters and Cops!

They make more money with those shows than they did with gaming shows all day long. I don't get the channel anymore, and don't care because the only G4 shows I like with Cinematech and Electric Playground.
