    Nintendo Not Holding E3 Press Event This Year

    Nintendo is aiming to host several smaller events in place of a large one.
    Nintendo revealed during their financial results briefing that at this year's E3, the company plans to host several smaller events in lieu of a large presentation.

    During the event, Nintendo Satoru Iwata explained "Unlike previous years, we will not have a large-scale [E3] presentation directed to everyone in the world. Instead, we are planning several smaller events focusing on software for America. Among
    these hands-on events will be one for American distributors and another for western media."

    During E3 2012 Nintendo held other meetings as well as their large presentation. This year, the company is striving to
    be different and announce all of their new software through the smaller events.

    It makes sense to me, they already have the WiiU and the 3DS out on shelves. Depending on the future launch titles which may or may not be amazing they're just tightening their belt a little, I read that 3DS systems are selling well but the games are not holding their own.

    WiiU system sales were not exactly matching the numbers that the original Wii presented during it's first year of sales as well, I want to see them use head tracking technology for future development.

    Nintendo dropped a megaton of information on upcoming 3DS games going into 2014 last week. I'm presuming that they just blew their load and don't have much more to share, but I'm told by a friend in the know that Nintendo is planning on doing other smaller events and will have Wii U news, and possibly have E3 floor demos available for download from eShop so everyone can experience them, not just the media.
