--[E3 2012 Predict-a-ton Challenge is open!]--
 


It's almost that time again, gamers' Christmas!

At 9am PST, on Tuesday June 5th the Wii U will finally be showcased with actual high-def Nintendo software and a full disclosure of its features. We're expecting impressive 3rd party reveals, fresh 3DS announcements too and all kinds of surprises.

Think you know Nintendo?

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



To play!:
======

Here are four sets of statements. Simply pick whichever ones you think will come true! (choose as many as you like eg. A01, A03, A09, A13, B02, B03, B04, C5... etc.).

But choose wisely! 2 pointers are very likely to happen, 10 pointers are the big gambles. For each statement you'll either win or lose that number of points depending on how the show plays out. That means guess incorrectly too many times and you'll end up with a negative score and have to live with the shame for the rest of the year. ;p

Please post your predictions by the end of the 4th.

No editing.

We will gray out any statements that are officially confirmed in advanced of the conference and you won't be able to pick them after that, so it might help to get your guesses in early!

I forget, do you lose points if you get the optional prediction wrong or not? (Also, do they have to use the word "deep" in order for you to get points from A04?)

Thanks to everyone for entering!

@V_S, yes you lose points if you pick a statement that doesn't come true. Maybe next year we'll also take away points for every true answer you missed, that'd force us all to be as bold as possible with our predictions. Mwa haha.


In A04, they don't have to use "deep" as long as they say that in so many words. We're usually pretty lenient when it comes to interpretating the results. :)
