Nintendo's E3 Predict-a-ton 2010 (win XP!)
 



Zero asked me to prepare a prediction quiz for the biggest show of the year, and I was happy to oblige.

The time is nearly upon us. Nintendo will be taking two hours on June 15th, 9am PST, to unveil their future offerings that are highly likely to include a lavish new Zelda game and a very fancy new portable system. But how well do you know your Nintendo stuff?

-=-=-=-=-=--=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-



To play!:
======

Choose as many statements as you like (eg. A01, A03, A09, A13, B02, B03, B04, C5... etc.)

They're split into four groups depending on how likely they are. You'll either win or lose those points depending on how the show plays out. Too many wrong guesses and you'll end up with a negative score!

As this is an official quiz this time around there will be XP to play for too. Every point of your final score will count as 1000XP. This might sound generous but the victor in the Fall Media Summit quiz was jacksrb with +10 points, so it's not as easy as it sounds. However, the top three predictors will also get a big XP boost, so there's plenty to play for.

Please post your predictions by the end of the 14th!

No editing.

If there are any solid leaks in advance of the show, those statements will be locked down so it might help to get your guesses in early.

well, I will not edit my post, and if I lose points then so be it. I'll play by the rules.
Posted: 06/09/10, 02:07:33
A. 01, 03, 04,07, 08, 12, 15.
B. 03, 05, 06, 07, 08, 09, 11, 12, 15, 16, 24, 26.

GoldenEye remake is real

Metroid 3DS

Several 3DS versions of Gamecube games, some possibilities are Pikmin 1&2, Windwaker, Twilight Princess and Metroid Prime Trilogy.
Posted: 06/09/10, 09:07:29
Alright, here are my predictions, and my reasons.


A) Most Likely : 2pts

01) Zelda trailer!

Well of course it will be there

02) Wii Vitality sensor's killer app unveiled

Doubt they wouldn't

04) 3DS is shown in action

Can't wait to see it

06) Nintendo's main 3DS launch game is an enhanced remake

I bet we may see some GC ports, just like we saw SNES remakes with the GBA, and N64 remakes with the DS

07) Nintendo's main 3DS launch game is a sequel to an existing Nintendo IP

Most likely

08) 3DS revealed to have at least one more new key feature

I'm sure it will

09) Epic Mickey first footage

We just might see it

10) The Last Story first footage

I guess

11) Xenoblade confirmed for US release

Yeah

12) 1 new WM+ Nintendo game revealed

Doesn't Zelda already count

14) Project Sora's game not mentionned

I don't think we'll see it



B) Maybe : 4pts

02) New Zelda features Mii's in a minor way

Probably, but unless they're like townsfolk or something we might not see them at E3, so this might take a while to award point to, I mean they could just be featured in like a picture or a little toy in someone's house so we probably wouldn't see that at E3

03) Zelda Wii playable on the show floor

They've already said it would be

05) 3DS will launch in the Americas this holiday season

I doubt Nintendo would separate the Japanese and NA releases too far from each other

06) 3DS playable on the show floor

Oh yeah

07) 3DS priced under $200

Can't see it being over that if it's going to strictly stay as a gaming device first and foremost. $199.99 at the most

09) Big 3rd party franchise to be at/near 3DS launch

I'm sure someone will cook something up in time for release

12) Zelda confirmed for 2010

Yes

15) Retro's new game named

I'm sure we'll see it, so I'm sure we'll also know its name

16) Retro's new game shown

Like I said, I'm sure we'll see it this year at E3


28) Wario Ware 3D

They're easy to make so I think we might see it



C) I don't know... : 6 pts

02) First footage of Dragon Quest X

Porbably

06) New Zelda uses GPGPU technology to enhance graphics

Casper already said this, so I'm inclined to believe him

10) A new Star Fox game is announced

It has been a while since we got a Star Fox game...

14) New Software Development Kit for the Wii unlocks GPGPU features

Again, Casper already said this

15) No substantial info on Wii's successor

Probably not too much, no

18) New game from Intelligent Systems is announced

Maybe

25) 3DS confirmed to have a more open app-style store

If Apple is "the new enemy" I would guess they'd want to compete with them



D) What the what? : 10 pts


05) Retro's game playable on the show floor

If we do see it, I wouldn't be surprised if it's playable

Good to see all of these predictions!

The correct answers and scores will be posted up shortly after the whole of E3 finishes. This isn't just about the 9am Tuesday conference after all, it's about all of the information that comes from the show floor, from interviews and from Nintendo's developer roundtable which will be at 6pm on Tuesday this year.

Posted: 06/11/10, 08:56:47
Last day to make your predictions! I've locked down two Retro statements based on the solid rumors we've been hearing, so they are now off limits.


My guesses:

A) 01,02,03,04,05,07,08,09,10,11,12,14,15,16

B) 02,03,05,06,07,09,10,11,12,13,21,24,26,27,28

Results?
Posted: 06/17/10, 18:44:52
Ugh, I don't think I did too well, especially since I was sure that Pikmin would be shown in some form and I didn't think Retro's game would be there (this was before Peer's hints).
Posted: 06/17/10, 20:25:26
Er...results?
Posted: 06/20/10, 20:47:00
Coming right up! Had a very busy week.

I'll post the definitive list of what came true first so everyone can argue about that while I add up the points. ;-p
Posted: 06/20/10, 21:45:42
Yeah, not that we're going to let it turn into an ARGUMENT, but you might have missed something.

It'll be interesting to see the results. And then I will add the XP soon after. The way I have to add XP doesn't actually notify you guys or anything, so you'll just have to keep an eye out. But I'll bump this thread right as I'm going it.
Posted: 06/20/10, 21:58:22
Shit! Why didn't I see this? I made a thread for my own predictions, and I said in it (and I quote) "They will show a new Kirby game. It will look great. Not necessarily the old one that never happened, though"

:(
