Peter Molyneux has remarked that Nintendo's "slightly lack lustre" Wii U console has to do something remarkable at E3 next month. Although E3 itself "runs the risk of being outdated".
It needs "better specs and great 1st party line up," he adds. However Molyneux now questions if the June E3 event is all that relevant anymore? We have so much choice now.
The rise of social networks and other methods of online community threatens E3. It already neared death when it abandoned its showy platform for a 'dentist's convention'.
However the platform holders and groups who hired booths rebelled against the change by E3 bosses and said they might have to abandon it because, frankly, it was boring. The organisers changed the format back letting the big publishers and companies start using their huge stage performances again. But is E3 still doomed?
"Nintendo's slightly lack lustre Wii U is going to have to blow us away with better specs and great 1st party line up," Peter Molyneux told . The former Lionhead boss will be offering his analysis to Spike TV which will be covering E3.
"Sony and Microsoft are holding their breath on next gen - interesting to see how they pad out another year. Price cuts, form factors?" The Fable creator now questions E3: "Is the biggest news that E3 itself runs the risk of being outdated, or perhaps it already is?"
"The real challenge is how the players are going to adapt to the mounting pressure of Facebook, Apple, Social, Cloud, Multi-Gaming." E3 takes place from June 5th to the 7th.
