This announcement by Nintendo was scheduled as far back as a month ago as you rightly reported. Can't wait to read about it.

Apple's not so raucous bash, as there is no Apple TV and there never will be, was scheduled only recently and to be quite honest... from the perspective of the gaming community....nobody honestly cares about it. LOL

The dedicated gaming press will cover both, but Nintendo will get more coverage. General electronics press do nothing but talk about Apple anyway, so its not like anything changed on that front. If anything, we'll get less of the usual misinformation that crops up from said sites about Nintendo, since they'll all be too busy drooling over their next iPhone to make up worst case scenarios for Wii U.

I also don't think its all that critical for Nintendo anyway. The early adopters are mostly hardcore Nintendo fans like me who have been paying attention for years now and won't care about the next iPhone update. The casual tech viewers that'll jump at Apple's announcements won't care about Wii U until they see the ads on TV in a month either, so I don't really see who this effects at all.

I think that no matter what Nintendo's conference will still get coverage. The Iphone (5) and the Wii U are 2 separate things, each going to a different market. Anybody who is excited about the Iphone will watch Apple's conference and anybody who is excited about the Wii U will watch Ninetendo's Conference. Sure their might be some crossover between the two audiences but I doubt an upgrade to an already amazing phone will steal all the thunder of the Wii U.

Best of both worlds in my opinion. My favorite two companies releasing two products I have been anticipating. Can't wait. Bad for Nintendo press, maybe, big-picture - no.

Actually, I think Apple might pay the most attention to the Nintendo conference, as the new system will feature a controller in the shape of a rectangle, with rounded edges. This might be the most strategic move apple has made (announcing iphone5 a day before Nintendo) as its been proven that similarly shaped devices cut into the profits of said idevices...

bbb7002004 I feel the same way. Most of the people watching Apple are the diehard fans who upgrade to the newest idevices day one, the rest are the casuals who are watching to see if the iphone 5 is worth upgrading to over their existing one. Neither are going to be that interested in Wii U especially after buying a new phone.

Its the "hardcore" gamers like those of us here on Neo that really care about it.

The iPhone competing with Nintendo is a laughable concept.

The day that the iPhone is legitimately talked about as an actual console and a viable medium for gaming is the day I leave the console scene for good.

As of right now, the average iphone app store game has about as much quality and fun factor as a typical Internet flash game, in other words, very little.
They all fit within the same 5 categories, almost all have a sort of pay2win premium thing going on, and they all feel like they were hastily put together in 30 minutes or less.
