It does matter if you are trying to steal someone else's thunder with your own event, which is what the user is suggesting. Nintendo has all the days and hours in the world to choose from. Doing it at the same day and at the same time of your rival's event is no longer making an announcement, its a popularity contest.
Well, if they did it at the same time, that wouldn't necessarily be why they did it then, but I see what you mean that is what the other person is suggesting. It could be easy to steal the thunder, though, if they were to come out with some major third-party/exclusive announcements. Getting GTA5 exclusive would be a lone announcement that could steal attention.
I doubt they will have any earth-shattering third-party announcements and I doubt they would do it at the same time even if they wanted to steal their thunder, cause they would probably do it the day before, or right before, not at the exact same time, but, if they did, everyone would see them both anyways. I think the whole thing that started this was mainly a joke anyways.
