Nintendo's conference is coming in a few hours, which means it's time for me to post my list of predictions! Do you remember my list of predictions from E3 2009? Well, if you never viewed it, the list was giant. Quite a few of my predictions came true, and some didn't. Now I'm back again this year with some new leads and educated guesses. There's lots of talk going on right now with what Nintendo will do to satisfy their core audience, but here are my predictions for what may very well get focused on/announced over the course of E3. Naturally, this set mostly focuses on news concerning Ninty platforms.
