Wii U E3
Nintendo previously announced that their E3 press conference would kick off at 9AM Pacific time (noon on the East Coast), and now they have announced that you’ll be able to watch the event live on and via other channels. The company has partnered with Spike TV and MTV2 to showcase the event there for free as well. However, most of us will probably watch the event on Nintendo’s E3 site, so go ahead and bookmark this link for June 5. The press conference will focus on the Wii U and the 3DS.

In addition to the E3 press conference, Nintendo will be streaming a few other events, including a “Software Showcase” at 6 PM on June 6, where a lot of the gameplay from upcoming Wii U games is expected to be shown. There’s also a “Developer discussion with Wii U Hardware producer Katsuya Eguchi” which will happen on June 5 at 11:30 PM (that’s almost bedtime!).

We’ll have a full roundup of our E3 expectations later this week, where we discuss what to expect from the Nintendo in regards to the Wii U. Stay tuned!

    Hey! i just wanted to ask you guys a small question
    i live in north carolina
    at what time will these things be shown in my area?
    …..dont tell me i am stupid
    …………..i already know that

    • alienfish

      That should be Eastern Time, so:

      Nintendo E3 presentation Tuesday @ 1:00 p.m.
      Developer Discussion thing Wednesday (early morning) @ 2:30 a.m. Software Showcase Wednesday @ 9:00 p.m.

      Next time just use Google -> images -> type in “time zones” and hit search. The first result will probably be good enough. Google answers many questions, so please use it or some other search engine.

      I’m pretty sure a recent developer commented on how the games we see at E3 for WiiU are going to surprise a lot of people. I’m thinkin’ it was THQ on the Darksiders II team.

  • Lilfid

    Really !!! Or i could stop video games …

  • andrew chavez3

  • uPadWatcher

    Despite a few delays, I have complete confidence that Nintendo is gonna blow us away with the Wii U… console and games. 2 more weeks and we’ll be ready for the most epic shock of all!

  • Wildman
