It would be bad, they're already having a hard time selling the system. Why make it where it will be overshadowed by the Next XBox Reveal, yes people will watch Directs but most will be seeing the specs and what the Xbox has to offer the next gen then to qatch Directs for games we know maybe relased this year and what games will be "TBA".

Nah. That's the kind of thing Microsoft would do, using their strong position to try to undermine the competition (as evidenced by their admission that they sometimes threaten to not let a game on their system if they don't get it first and best). Even if Nintendo did have that sort of advantage over Microsoft (which they sadly don't), they tend to focus more on acting in their own benefit. They would schedule it at a time they feel all eyes would be on them, rather than trying to steal a few eyes away from someone else.

The best time to do the direct is right before E3 officially kicks off. Get Spike to broadcast it just like an E3 show and few will care it isn't a proper stage show. This way Nintendo has at least a day of hype before the other show their stuff. After that have a post E3 show that does everything they can to derail the hype for these new systems.

What? Dude, that would be an incredibly dumb move. No one but the most dedicated Nintendo fanbase will tune in to that, everyone will be more interested to see the new Xbox.
