Five Things Nintendo Needs To Do With the Wii U At E3

Can the big N knock out its competitors? It can if it does these five things.

When Nintendo presented its big showcase last year before the Electronic Entertainment Expo took place, it shocked the world with the announcement of the Wii U, a new game console that would take advantage of an innovative new touch screen controller.  However, when it came to hitting the floor and seeing the Wii U in action, most people think it came up a bit short, despite the interesting presentations.  This time around, Nintendo has a chance to really show attendees what their next-gen system is made of.  So how can they capitalize?  We’ve got a few ideas…

Though it’s likely to introduce a few more surprises at this year’s event, there are other things it needs to do to regain the positive energy that its next console is deserving of.  So, with that, here’s our list of ideas…

Reveal a Date and Price

There was initial word earlier this month that Nintendo wasn’t going to release an official date and price for their system.  This not only leaves people up in the air without a way to pre-order it, but also leaves some faith shaken in its stockholders.  E3 is the time – and the place – to give us an official release date and price.  Not only would it make us better prepared, but it’d give Microsoft and Sony a good idea of what approach they need to take with their next-gen hardware.  It works best for all of us, and helps you save face, Nintendo.  Think about it.
