Nintendo not at TGS

Nintendo not being at TGS really isn’t something new. Nintendo hardly ever has a booth at TGS, choosing E3 as their big show. The reason this story is interesting is because the last couple of years, Nintendo has had keynote speeches at TGS…but this year they are not. The keynote speaker at this TGS are Sony Computer Entertainment´s Ken Kutaragi, and Yoichi Wada from Square-Enix.

This makes us wonder just where and when Nintendo plans to announce the price point and launch date of the Wii. It would only make sense to have this announcement during a big media event. We also know Nintendo is making this announcement in September, leading many to believe that TGS was the perfect answer. Now we are left scratching our heads trying to pick a time and place. The Leipzig Games Convention is in August, so that is out.

Our very good friend Falafelkid (his blog here) has taken these clues as a confirmation that Nintendo will be holding another SpaceWorld. SpaceWorld is an event that Nintendo has put together in the past as their own platform. It’s all Nintendo, from the handling to the companies at the event. Many people have been hoping Nintendo would hold another SpaceWorld, seeing that we haven’t seen once since the launch of the Cube.

What do you guys think? With TGS out of the picture, and LGC not an option, when is Nintendo going to drop the bomb we have been waiting for? Huge thanks to Insanedoodle58 for the heads up.
