Nintendo Snubs CES Once Again

Its just over a month away and we are as excited about it as a group of children. Yes you’ve guessed it, we all can’t wait to head to Las Vegas in January for CES 2011.

That excitement was partly based on a press released issued by the organisers, the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA), earlier this week stating that Nintendo would be exhibiting at the expo for the first time in 16 years. Our imaginations began to run wild with the possibilities of what could be unveiled – the long awaited 3DS? Surely. Wii HD? Possibly. A Wii 2? Well, we are allowed to dream.

However this morning our dreams were shattered when the CEA issued another statement letting people know that they had made an error. "CEA erroneously included Nintendo of America (Nintendo) on a list of companies exhibiting on the show floor at the 2011 International CES. Nintendo has contracted for meeting room space at the 2011 CES, but will not be exhibiting on the show floor. CEA regrets the error."

The mix up happened somewhere because Nintendo has booked some meeting rooms at the event but has not booked an exhibition space and will therefore not be showing off any new technology to us. However TrustedReviews will be there at CES to bring you any breaking Nintendo news should it decide to leave its meeting room at any stage.

The last time Nintendo exhibited at CES was in 1994 when it unveiled "Project Reality," a joint project with Silicon Graphics – a project that would become known as the Nintendo 64. We’ve included a video of its demonstration below for a little bit of nostalgia.
