Just like Nintendo did last year, the company is offering a free, official, live stream of their major press conference during E3. It will be video and it’s set to run for around an hour. It’s the company’s chance to show fans, and non-fans, their message as uneditorialized as possible.
The news came in the form of a press blast sent out to writers towards the end of this morning. Within were viewing instructions and some information regarding what to expect from the site after the show. Here’s the initial bit, including where and when you’ll be able to find the stream
“Video game fans around the globe are invited to bookmark http://e3.nintendo.com in their browsers as Nintendo prepares to offer a virtual front-row seat at this year’s E3 Expo in Los Angeles. A live webcast of Nintendo’s E3 Expo 2011 media presentation will begin at 9 a.m. Pacific time on Tuesday, June 7.”
Nintendo will obviously be showing off software for the Wii as it enters its twilight, it will likely look to garner some fan support for the Nintendo 3DS as its sales have been lackluster and it will definitely be showcasing its newest console. Rumored to be tentatively called Project Cafe, Nintendo will be showing the successor to the Wii at E3 in June.
Whether or not you watch the press conference live, provided by Nintendo, TechnoBuffalo will have the major news from the show covered throughout the week. So, hey, if you don’t feel like waking up at 9am PST in order to catch the show, don’t. We won’t blame you. I’ll actually be sitting in the theater myself, cranky and tired.
As always, we’ll have more on this as it comes.
