Both Microsoft and Sony have stated they won't debut new consoles at this year's E3, but we still expect to hear some next-gen talk during the show.
The console tech will be shown behind closed doors @E3 next month
@NYC_GAMER thats exactly what i was thinking because its common knowledge at this point EA, Crytek, and Epic have the dev kits for the next gen systems so im assuming they will show case behind closed doors to all the other potential next gen developers and publishers. but i feel as though they will not say anything during the press conferences about them at all. although im sure we could get some leaked info regarding specs and pics!
Sony wins! MS said it themselves. http://gematsu.com/2012/05/...
The only reason I won't agree with you because I don't know what Sony will show. Sure, since 2006 Sony had have awesome conferences, but you never know. But other than that, if this comes to be true MS already lost it... I can already see Kinect presentation all over again, how half of the news were "stuff you already do with your controller done with Kinect... Look at how I'll watch netflix here". Really hope they are just trying to misleading or something.
I know Sony is going to atleast mention it!
They don't have to show anything just giving a solid release date will work for me.
some game footage will be shown, I don't think either Sony or Microsoft will allow an easy ride for the Wii U
Yea i think if we see some tech demos, it will definitely build up some hype for Next Gen being close.
Hopefully not because honestly the PS3 havent even been used yet.Since its been released only 1st party studios have been doing all he supporting.How about Bungie,DICE,& Epic Games release exclusive games on PS3.I love how most developers and game reporters are asking for next-gen when some of the best so called developers haven't even tried too push the PS3. My personal shocker of E312 could be Respawn Entertainment showing their game exclusively towards the PS3.And the reason I say this is because of the info of the contracts that have been released.I didn't know Activision and MicroSoft was putting so much IW developers for that E3 reveal.They worked so hard and Activision still gave them the big fuck you.Hopefully Respawn Entertainment win their trial because they earned every single penny. I think this is the year you see alot more 3rd parties supporting exclusively on the PS3.Valve have been quiet since Portal 2 been release and I would love too see Left for Dead 3 with Stream support with cross-platform between PS3/PC that would be awesome. Hopefully R* hopefully give us Agent or even GTA:San Andreas 2 at this year E3.I would love an new Stuntman game now that game have awesome movie-action gameplay.How about an exclusive Dragon Ball Z MMO on the PS3 I think that game could be a real system seller.Manhunt 3 would be a sleeper.I would also love Mat Hoffman's Pro BMX 3.There is so many great games in the PS franchise that any amount of games could be shown at E312. So its not time for next-gen consoles for some company its just time for more developers too use the PS3 and truly show me why the PS3 can't do what they want too do.Sony 1st party developers are not complaining about the PS3 hardware.Remember the K.A.R.A. and The Last of Us teaser all had an disclaimer saying they are running in real-time on the PS3.Love too see what GG is working on and some footage of TLG. Sorry for long post just so hyped for E312 so many games could and will be shown and I cant wait ;)
Sony developers not only have contact with the makers directly but also each other giving them a huge advantage over 3rd parties. That said Bioshock Infinite is looking to pretty damn good for a 3rd party title. Anyways XMB has a few annoyances with it particularly to do with memory. I want a new console so i can properly multi-task. eg. File copying should stay in the background allowing other functions to take place (like watching a movie/show) and we can't have any of that until nextgen.
Yes XMB could have some worked done too it but I think people are forgetting the XMB tech they showed a couple of years ago.It was alot faster and you could display up too 4 different window and they all had sometihng different on them and they was running smoother. I think they have been tweaking this tech for the past couple of years.Hopefully they show some type of update about the XMB.
Announcing now would kill the upcoming holiday sales. So winter 2013 is the earliest you will hear any official word from SONY/MS, E3 2013 at the latest.
Unless they also give a pricecut.
