Maybe Nintendo doesn't think it's worth revealing stuff too early? There are bigger things than E3... I think.

Well I don't think it's as bad as all that. I think Nintendo did pull several mistakes here.
1) Showed off Wario Land: Shake It to the Japanese press a month prier
2) Didn't ready a single Pikmin 3 screen shot even though they are clearly working on it
3) Decided E3 was for the casual audience even though the gaming press are some of the most "Hardcore" gamers around
4) Said they are still supporting their "Core" gamers and there are games, but failed to mention they're not made by Nintendo and are for the DS. Damn GTA for DS crap, we want Wii games already. Enough with the DS games
5) Failed to hype any of the projects they do have out side of Animal Crossing.
6) Failed to give us their Fall/Winter line up, having to wait to October doesn't cut it.

Seriously now that all the big projects they were working on are finished it's like they've gone totally silent. This super secretiveness isn't cutting it. What did they tell the gaming press they couldn't mention for months on end? It baffles me, Animal Crossing, Wario Land, and Captain Rainbow can't be it. We knew the first and the last is immediately unpopular just by its name.

This right here is why I'm waiting for PAX. I'll get all the interesting news there and I CAN ACTUALLY ATTEND THE EVENT.

Like I said, Microsoft seemed to have the most going for them this year, in my opinion. But as for me personally...

Tokyo Game Show FTW!

Pertaining to Final Fantasy XIII...

They also mentioned that the company is working hard to make sure that the Blu-ray version of the game, which is coming to the PS3, is in no way superior to the DVD one which will arrive for Xbox 360 players. They say Square Enix is seeking new ways "to compress the prerendered movies and voice that take up a lot of data in ways that don't affect the final product. As for the in-game visuals, we're going to look for ways to ensure that the quality remains the same between the two versions".

...should I be worried about this?

More than likely not. I mean, FFXII's prerendered cutscenes totally blew me away, seeing as how that was the PS2's hardware, so I wouldn't be.
