  • So I'm fairly new to the forums and these betting special posts. Are we all just putting out our guesses for fun or will there be a winner out of us? I would gladly make a Google Doc with everyone's bets in here so we could come up with a winner. Obviously some of the scoring would have to be altered a bit since it would be with around 20 people but I think we could make it work. The winner would just get bragging rights until the next betting special.

    1 point for a correct simple bet.
    2 points for a correct dirty bet, or if no one gets it the better(s) closest get the points.
    Same thing as with the dirty bet for the double down on don.
    Follow the EZA scoring for the final bet.

    Yay or Nay?



  • @Doctor-Professor that would be a hugh thing on the event, clicks everywhere!!



  • @logic__error it's a new era, we have the time to a new link and why not, a female one.



  • @Tragosaurus I was just doing this for fun. I was planning on adding up my score for sure though, so maybe both?



  • Well I decided to just go ahead and do it. I'll go back and update it whenever the Allies post the results video because I'm not going to go through and count all of those things.
    Also, @thisisdaleb if you want in go back and make guesses for the Dirty Bets, not just higher or lower.

    FINAL BETS:

    • What will be the US retail price of the Switch (Price of lowest SKU) $269.99 (Recent Nintendo hardware hasn't been cheap. This is as low as I think they'll go. I expect that it will include lots of bells and whistles to increase the value.)


  • Simple Bets:

    Will the word "Metroid" be spoken? Yes, more info at E3.

    Dirty Bets:

    How many Fire Flowers will appear? 1
    How many Switch games shown will star Mario? 3. Mario, Mario Kart and Mario Party.

    (I'm betting on Nintendo catching up with the times and mentionning Twitch here and also, the word "which" )

    FINAL BETS:
    What will be the US retail price of the Switch (Price of lowest SKU) $229.99

    Personnally, I think the console will fail if it's over $250. I think $199 would be a great price to generate hype and sales, but I doubt Nintendo will go that low. If they release at $299, then we're looking at a WiiU 2.0 and Nintendo going 3rd-party in the next generation (yes, please!).

  • Ok so I ended up actually watching the event a couple of times to try and find the answers to the bets. We can wait until the Allies have given their official counts but I'm not sure if they will end up counting the exact numbers for a couple bets because of their higher/lower approach. I'm also curious to see how they define double jump and hearing switch clicks.

    Simple Bets:

    • Will the word "Metroid" be spoken? No
    • Will Wario reveal himself? No
    • Will the phrase "You're a kid now, you're a squid now" reveal itself? No
    • Will Wave Race be shown in any form? No
    • Will Waluigi speak? (This includes grunts, laughs, etc.) No

    • How many Rupees will we see? 0
    • How many Fire Flowers will appear? 0
    • How many Switch games shown will star Mario? 2 - Super Mario Odyssey, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe
    • How many Double Jumps? I saw 1 dive where Mario dove into water where he clearly got more air after the initial jump. Mario also jumped off of his hat but I don't think that would count since its more of a bounce (happened twice but it was the same clip)
    • How many Switch clicks will we hear during the presentation? I counted 10 Switch clicks with the logo, but they also used what I assume was the Switch click audio an additional 17 times where someone snapped
    • How many times will the phrase "Make the Switch" be said? 0

    Double Down on Don:

    • How many times will a word be spoken out loud that rhymes with the word "Switch"? I counted 1 when the EA guy said pitch.

    FINAL BETS:

    • What will be the US retail price of the Switch (Price of lowest SKU)? $299.99

    I probably won't bother updating my spreadsheet until the official EZA results are in. If I do it will only be a few of the bets which are clear.
