E3 is almost here. For those of you who do not know what that is… get out! For those of us who have been waiting since the final day of 2014’s E3 for this year’s to premier, the wait is nearly over. The Electronic Entertainment Expo is revving up to be one hell of a show. From amazing new tech such as Microsoft’s HoloLens– which brings augmented reality to our fingertips; and Sony’s VR solution– allowing players to finally step into their game; to all the newest games not yet revealed. Taking place in beautiful, sunny Los Angeles, California where the heat is ramping up on the beach– and hardly anything is more exciting than to know June is finally here!
As with most e3 events, Microsoft and Sony will be duking it out on stage throughout the four day (officially three days) extravaganza amongst other companies as well. It is the duty of each corporation to detail a rough blueprint of their products, games, designs, etc. for the remainder of the year, and the next year to follow. Though this is indeed a show for gamers like us, E3 is ultimately a convention for investors and companies that intend to sell these products. Nintendo, like recent years, have decided to opt out of a staged media briefing– however, their company and games will be in attendance on the showroom floor. And opting out of a show that allows the entire gaming world to take witness in what makes their console unique and a must have, is another step in a series of wrong directions Nintendo have been taking recently.
Microsoft have began to gain steam over their competition; promising a big media briefing filled with first party games as they have proclaimed their show as the “greatest games line up in Xbox history.” Sony so far this generation have been the team to beat and it is their show to lose. With all this spectacular news foreshadowing the events to come, what can Nintendo do to stay competitive against both Microsoft and Sony? Here is our picks of the top 15 things Nintendo can do to put on not just a great showing but an amazing one.

Pulling that price down may just be the key for a brighter future.
