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.

"...Isn't the 3DS already out??.....why would they release new things about it after release......"

If you want to make it easier on yourself, people can suggest predictions.

My purpose :

A - Nintendo :

1- Skyward Sword for Wii & Café unveiled.

2- Skyward Sword for Wii only.

3- Wii games will be upscaled to 720p or 1080p on Café.

4- Wii games will run more likely at 480p (or 576i like the European version of Mad World...)

5- Rare announce games on 3DS ! Viva Pińata (sigh...) and Donkey Kong Country 3D (ah !) !

6- Factor 5 is back and announce Star Wars Rogue Squadron 3D remake. Plus, they show their famous unknown Wii game they're making for ages.

7- Project Café's name is... Stream !

8- Project Café's name is... Feel !

9- Skyward Sword will be a linear game (wtf ?!)

10- Majora's Mask 3D unveiled on... 3DS.

11- A new Super Smash Bros to be part of Café's lineup !!

12- The new Super Smash Bros is full of third party characters, like a "Nintendo" clan vs "Third party" clan.

13- The "WiiPad" controller is fake, Nintendo will show a full motion controller like an very enhanced Wiimote.

14- Or maybe everything about the "WiiPad" is true and Nintendo'll show the most expansive controller after Kinect.

15- Online on Café will be like Xbox Live, with a real chat system and a decent online service.
