--E3 2014 Predict-a-ton Challenge is open!--
 


Nintendo. Digital. Event.

Can such a generic sounding package contain megatons? And can you, dear reader, predict them?

This year's E3 presentation livestreams on June 10th at 9am PT, 12pm EST, 5pm BST. With only a few days to go, now's the time to unleash your Nintendo Nostradamus and enter the 2014 Predict-a-ton!

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



How To Play:
======

Here are four sets of statements, grouped by megaton-osity. Pick whichever you think will come true. (choose as MANY as you like eg. A01, A03, A13, B02, B03, C5...)

But choose wisely! These predictions are increasingly valuable and increasingly risky. Correct picks win you points, incorrect picks lose you points. Can you score more than 0? Many have tried and failed. Last year's winner was infinitywave with a suspiciously record +24 points.


Please post your predictions by the end of June 9th.


No editing.


Any statements that are officially confirmed in advance of the presentation will be grayed out and you won't be able to pick them after that, so it might help to get your guesses in early.


For the purposes of this challenge, all information that surfaces during the course of E3 will be taken into account. That includes the Digital Event, Treehouse streaming, press meetings, showfloor revelations, interviews, online news, and any additional announcements before the doors close.

Bonus Pick- New Metroid Game


IW, you need me to modify the calc sheet again this year, or are you good? It's easy enough, just swap out the predictons.

(Is the bonus thing limited to one pick or is there no limit? Would have to extend the modifier table if that was the case)

Thanks so much for the offer, but I will have a tinker with last year's sheet. You're right, I should be good this time.

The Bonus Prediction is just ONE game. Keeping it simple. :)

Yes, thanks Mustache. I've made that part clearer since you posted.

@Infinitywave

I barely read what you wrote. Maybe put "CHOOSE ONE" in the bolded part w/ Optional? That may've stood out more. Or just keep an eye on it, I guess. Hopefully no one else will mess it up.

Metroid, since I hedged a few bets on it earlier, might as well put my non-money where my non-mouth is.

My vote:

01) Zelda U for 2014 with Online Multiplayer

02) New 3DS model with higher power levels than Vita

03) Galaxy 3 AND Prime 4

04) Nintendo MMORPG made by Blizzard

06) Console revision so that it now plays both Blu-rays and HDDVD

07) Virtual Console goes to mobile and has weekly releases of games people actually want

08) Intelligent Systems bringing Paper Mario and Fire Emblem to Wii U in an amazing crossover called "Paper Emblem: Fire Mario"

09) EA support, Madden now Wii U exclusive

10) QOL platform - I don't know what QOL is, but it sounds amazing so it is definitely going to happen.

BONUS: New F-zero, STARRING Star Fox characters, set in the world of Project H.A.M.M.E.R.

...

Our goal is to get the most negative points possible since this is Negative World, right? I'm golden.
