Both of those statements apply to both conferences, though.led-naruto wrote:It's a bit dumb to compare a press conference where everyone's hopes were up because of some unfounded rumors, with a press conference that was all about making the ridicule with games that almost everyone didn't care at all.

That was bad, but 2012 seems to have done it again, giving us Pikmin 3 as our core title and trying to score a hit with, Nintendoland? I personally think Pikmin 3 is a better game then Animal Crossing, but the big issue is that Nintendo have a new console to sell in 2012 and everything to prove. So what was the worse press conference?

While this year's coneference was a disappointment, it wasn't near as horrible as 2008. Whoever thinks this year was worse than 2008, believed so much in the ridiculous amount of rumors prior to E3.
Plus, this year's E3 was an instant win with the confirmation of 2 Wii U GamePads and Project P-100 (Nintendo + Platinum Games).

+Pre-Olympic Gold medalist Shaun White made an appearance in 2008. That counts for something.
+2012 had not one, BUT TWO underwhelming press conferences.
+E3 2012 was the moment that the Wii U needed to prove itself to the large audience which it relatively failed at. At least by E3 2008, only the slated software failed to make a nice impression, not the whole ecosystem.
+At least we can laugh at 2008 because it was so ridiculous and circus-like and over-the-top bad. 2012 will be remembered just as a big, missed opportunity. In movie terms, 2008 will be the horrible, campy, SyFy Saturday movie while 2012 is one, giant, blockbuster movie that bombs.
