Peter Molyneux is asking the question whether E3 is still relevant as, according to him, this year’s show will lack luster because Sony and Microsoft are saving all the heat for next year. To save the day, Nintendo must “blow us away”, he argues.
“Sony and Microsoft are holding their breath on next gen,” he pointed out. “[It will be] interesting to see how they pad out another year. Price cuts, form factors?”
“Nintendo’s slightly lack lustre Wii U is going to have to blow us away with better specs and great first party line up,” he added.
As for E3, Molyneux is questioning the event’s importance altogether: “Is the biggest news that E3 itself runs the risk of being outdated, or perhaps it already is?” he said. “The real challenge is how the players are going to adapt to the mounting pressure of Facebook, Apple, Social, Cloud, Multi-Gaming.”
