Re: Zelda Wii at E3 Banning Bet

I would do it if the ban was only three days. A week? Nah, not worth it.

Kee, you should add some odds into the OP. For example, 2:1 for a logo. You don't do horses without odds, and this is just as big.

That may make things too confusing. Plus, I've already added a rule. I don't think it's far to add more rules when people already voted. Though, they have time to pull out before E3...

Hmm...

Re: Zelda Wii at E3 Banning Bet

To be honest, I believe Zelda Wii is quite viable for this year's E3. So, in short, I AM BETTING that we will see Wii Zelda at E3 2009.

I mean, Twilight Princess was pretty much done in 2005. It was delayed in order to be fitted to the Wii and also to maybe get a little more polish. That's it. The game could've come out as a very similar experience to what we got at a little over two years after Wind Waker.

And remember, we were teased about Wind Waker at SpaceWorld 2001. That's one year after Majora's Mask. The game released in late 2002 in Japan. Of course, it must also be noted that the game was rushed to shelves.

Majora's Mask came only two years after OOT. Granted, the game could be considered an expansion pack. You have to make these considerations.

But think about it. We got what was mostly a Gamecube Zelda game back in 2006. It's now 2009, and even if you extend the typical development cycle for Zelda games, it's still very much a possibility for a new Wii Zelda to come out in 2010. So, why is it so impossible for Nintendo to tease the game one year early? Zelda is a major franchise and garners a lot of hype. I think Nintendo knows this. Why would they wait until the year of release to get the hype train started?

I just feel that an announcement is far more viable than some people make it out to be, considering that console Zelda games, on average, have been releasing within three years of each other, and it's been almost three years since Twilight Princess' release without even an official announcement of the next game.

We're creeping up on the Wii's third anniversary. Time's flying, and it's already almost Summer 2009. Wii Zelda's coming in some way or another. It probably won't release this year, but I think an announcement isn't so much to ask.

Re: Zelda Wii at E3 Banning Bet

I'm putting in my bet that Nintendo will announce that they're selling all of their franchises to Microsoft and opening a fast food chain called "Shroom Station".

Re: Zelda Wii at E3 Banning Bet

I AM BETTING

Zelda WILL be shown at E3!
If it isnt, then there's no real point to be on ZU for that week. (unless they speak about Spirit Tracks)

Nintendo's E3 conference is this Tuesday. Last year Miyamoto mentioned that he had the Zelda team working on a Zelda for Wii.

You put a bet on the way you think things will go, and if you're wrong, you get banned from ZU for a week.

PLACE YOUR BETS!

~The Rules~

What qualifies as Zelda Wii being shown:
-Trailer
-Screenshots
-The official logo being shown
-Gameplay demonstration
-Playable Demo


What qualifies as Zelda Wii Not being shown:
-Not being shown.
-Only mentioned unofficially (like how Miyamoto mentioned at last E3 that the Zelda team is working on a Zelda Wii; that doesn’t count



The Penalty for Losing the Bet: A one week long banning from the Zelda Universe forums. That means the banning will start the day after Nintendo's E3 conference, and end a week from then (Starting June 3rd, June 10th is when the banning ends).

The Reward for Winning the Bet: Either a new Zelda for Wii is revealed, or you get the satisfaction of winning a bet. I guess it's more about taking a risk in order to make things more fun.

UPDATE: From this point on (starting at the 10th post in this thread), if you are betting, you must say "I AM BETTING" in your post (and then include which why you are betting).

Here are the people contending in the bet so far:

Those who believe Zelda Wii WILL Be at E3:
KeeSomething
Captain Crusader
nod flenders
Commissioner Postman
Camero
triforcextess
King KK
Rash



Those who believe Zelda Wii WILL NOT be at E3:
Lieutenant Lollipop
Tittie Tott
SnareSticks
GK: 4895/9999
Qnez
PyroShadow

If you want to join the bet, post here, and make it clear which side you are on. Once you place a bet, you only have until Nintendo's E3 conference to change your bet, or just pull out all together. Once the Nintendo conference starts, you cannot pull out of the bet!
Interesting, but what happens if the naysayers lose? Do they get banned for a week too, or is it just the optimists that get punished? x3

Re: Zelda Wii at E3 Banning Bet

I am betting Zelda Wii will be at E3.

Even if it isn't I still think the next console Zelda will be announced this year.

So I guess by saying "not betting", these people are still making a bet, though?
They aren't participating in the ban bet, plain and simple. This is something people do on NeoGAF all the time. The mods keep a list of people who have lain bets, and if they get proven wrong, their account gets banned, usually permanently. Used in an example: "Final Fantasy XIII will NEVER be on the 360." E3 2008=LOL banned.

Re: Zelda Wii at E3 Banning Bet

He's coming back in about 20 minutes or something.

I'm not really sure either. I was under the assumption that the losing side got banned. Aka, if it's announced, people who voted it won't be are banned. If it isn't announced, people who voted it would be are banned.

Re: Zelda Wii at E3 Banning Bet

It's quite clear, now that I think about it. You either bet that Zelda will be at E3, or you bet against that.

"I bet Zelda will be at E3" versus "I bet Zelda will not be at E3."
