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.

Could you number the predictions? It would make it easier for me to make a list.
Posted: 06/07/10, 19:18:32
Yep! Doing that right now.

...Done!

Cool stuff!

Some of these are open for interpretation (what qualifies as the "main" launch game for 3DS, what "as powerful as" means), so maybe you should make those a little clearer. If you feel like it, of course.

I'll stew these over and hopefully get my choices in before the big show.

I'm being conservative this time around, at the media summit I got burned pretty bad. Though I am really tempted to predict D09. It would make perfect sense what with Iwata's comments about Apple being competition.

Bonus: Mario Kart 3DS
Posted: 06/07/10, 22:41:33
Quick question: If we get our bonus prediction wrong, do we lose 10 points?
Posted: 06/07/10, 22:52:40
Another quick question:

Some are predicting Mario Kart 3DS as their bonus prediction...if it comes true will they get points for both that and B26 (which is Mario Kart 3DS)?

I think Mario Kart is likely so I predicted it via B26, but I figured it would be excluded from the bonus prediction so I predicted something else!
Posted: 06/07/10, 23:10:41
Too late to implement this now, but maybe next time, everyone could write their answer to the bonus question in Spoiler text (honor system would apply) and the 10 points would be split between everyone who had it correctly guessed. So you would pick something obvious at your own risk and guessing something that no one else did could get you more points.
Posted: 06/07/10, 23:21:38
The bonus prediction is the one thing I didn't run past Zero, but I figured that as with all the other statements it's a win/lose situation. That's why it's optional. By all means go ahead and edit it out now if you like.

Griptor, think of the 10pt prediction as a gamble. If you think Mario Kart 3DS will show up then you can either be tentative and say B26, or you can go all out and also make it your 10pt prediction.

Yes, it's all wonderfully, needlessly complicated! (although I think it makes sense, just about )

-

Jargon, it's hard to be any clearer about the definition of "main game" on the 3DS or whether it's hardware power is literally 360 or PS3 level. We'll have to make a judgement call based on the event. We shall be strict but fair. Hehe!
