TSA: "Sony will be concentrating on PS Vita and the PS3 line-up is too strong for a new console to appear, right?"
Between MS and sony, if one were to show off new hardware it would be sony. They always show things off way early. E3 2005 MS showed off the 360 and launched the same year. Sony showed off the PS3 at e3 2005 (although most of what they showed was fake), then launched 2006.
I don't know about hardware but I would bet my money that Sony will bring more hardcore games than MS. As usual.
Agreed. Microsoft has turned the 360 into a casual console when they announced the Kinect. In my opinion. XperiaRay
@GamingPerson More "hardcore" games? Lets forget about the "hardcore" term. As for the PS3, Sony will bring more exclusive games as well as better games than MS + PSVita games, while MS will bring multiplatform games like COD (as always) Halo, Kineckt and MAYBE a new game. Sony will probably have a much better show. It's between Sony and Nintendo but I don't think we can say Nintendo is already the winner just because they have a new console, we need to wait and see what seems to be an epic battle this year.
@DK I think he means for the ps3.It wouldnt be "as usual" seeing that this vita 2nd appearence or 3rd at e3
I could see a slight possibility in Sony releasing an 'official' PS3 Slim @ a $199 price-point. That would be a phenomenal announcement that would really spike sales for their upcoming year. The draw-back with that idea is that Sony not only would market a 'new' PS3 hardware... but within one year, it would have to market an even 'newer' piece of hardware, the PS4. They would have to consider how confused that could make the public; marketing would prove to be difficult. Overall, I feel [like many others] that Sony is the only one who will give Ninty a run for its money for E3 publicity. Between the following... Sony has a lot of potential for a superb conference. - PS Vita games +++ - PS3 exclusives ++ - Move games ++ (especially since they are reaching the end of this gen cycle. They need to focus on low price point and appealing to the masses) - PS Plus + The '+' signifies what I feel they would concentrate the most time to.
pretty sure that's trolling there GamingPerson.
Yeah too bad Microsoft are actually focused on making money o_o
Recent games show it wasnt fake.
Animations, physics and particle effects were WAYYY beyond what we've seen on the PS3. They were target renders, get over it.
I havent seen the e3 in 2005but the demos ive seen didnt comee close to uc and a hand full of other games.If you cant provide a demo displaying those animations physics and particle effects from e3 2005 then your point is null.You said " they " as if it was alot of games.For some reason I believe your talking about a tech video which was 1 video.Even that video showed things I see in video games today
@Ravenor Killzone 2 says otherwise. The actual game looked better when it came out than its 2005 animation.
@GrandTheftZamboni - It didn't look better. It looked slightly worse. Check the trailer again.
Killzone 2 looked really great and I was more than happy with it (still consider it my most favorite shooter), but better? Seriously? That trailer had absolute amazing particle effects, a higher polycount and draw-distance and an even more advanced lighting system complete with flawless shadows. If Killzone 2 had looked like that trailer, or Motorstorm for that matter, we would not be in need of a PS4 graphics wise.
What Sony showed wasn't "fake". It was still in development so bound to change.
Still defending sony from 2005. I do agree with you as those were some pretty realistic Giant Enemy crabs. And the damage you could do to them was amazing. Sony is so great. @ suicidekings I for one if I didn't have windex would have a ps3 that would be invisible from the dust that collects on it. I still have one of the fat ones but it still sucks ballz in my opinion. Go 360.
@ JAZZ maybe so but still, the ps3 is a piece of hardware(machine) and its going to collect dust just like what my 360 is doing. Go 360(ass).both machine are great in my opinion because ive been able to enjoy great games from both systemand yeah they lied but well 4 years after and men uncharted 2 came and everything was great(bc is excluded from the system because its costed too much to make and besides i had some game for xbox that i couldnt play on the 360 and MS was getting rid of some games that you could play on 360 but then when they came out on the xbox ARCADE you couldnt play them anymore(metal slug 3))
[email protected] one of the most beautifull delusional fanboy in full denial.. better hardware, better and more games (and variety, better graphics, free online, etc ebill gates( employeetc get over it, and buy one if you are a gamer more than bill gates's employee.
@Kikzoo I get how some peeps prefer one system over another for whatever pros and cons. What I dont understand is how ignore people are to hate on america companies and owners like bill gates (who btw donates more to charity than maybe something like every major corporation combined). Also another point of it being ironic to hate on anything america is guess what, if your reading this most likely you live in america. But alas is very cliche and "cool" to hate anything american, so its what the kids do to stay popular.
ps3 SS aka ps3 super slim confirmed
It's the size of a DS lol, that would be hilarious. I'd buy that... I'd buy that and lose it...
The first MGS4 trailers were done on Apple PPC-based desktops and as the next trailers rolled out the visuals changed and so did the performance. I've come to expect that I haven't SEEN THE GAME until I play it.
Actually Sony would be the last one to show there console early after what happen last generation.
What about Kinect? The add on that was hyped for well over a year before its release, and a over a year after its yet to prove itself as the all-around control revolution it was advertised as. I mean, come on.
@ Master Cornholio Ya...there was this one thing called the move that looked pretty darn similar to the wiimotes but only they looked like black dildos. Dont get me wrong...i own all three systems and play them all equally, but to say that Sony didnt want to cash in on the casual market themselves is nothing but ignorant.
That is true but you forget one important thing, Sony did not forget about the rest of their audience whilst focusing on move, something which Microsoft clearly did not think was important.
i would love to see a ps3.5. Really. It launches with a 500gb drive and 2 gb of memory split. It would give some life to the ps3 right now and allow patches to games that have struggled. It would also give them the leg up on any multiplatform games. And who knows, alot of ppl may just buy it. First update adds cross game chat. Why not? U cant really lose and the pressure to release a new console may be lessened a little. Alot of people would be so psyched, especially if sony got a confirmation list of companies willing to patch past games like skyrim etc.
All that would achieve is that people would be majorly annoyed and the ones that are less informed about things like that would be confused. People would have different gaming experiences, some features wouldn't work for some but well for others. I don't think anything like that would ever happen nor should it. I would, however, be more than happy to save some serious money for a PS4.
People do mistakes and should learn from them. Sony is in the business to make money and to win market shares. They've done a mistake in the past. That doesn't mean that they will keep repeating the same mistake like it's something in their philosophy/culture, unless they like losing and I don't think anyone likes to lose. So what you just said is plain naive and stupid, maybe that's what you are wishing for because you're scared and you like Sony to have another runner-up role in the next generation.
Hope it's another good show. Always interesting to see what all parties are bringing to the table.
Well, PS3 owners, get ready for the golden year of PS3. The last year of PS3. The last year to taste bunch of fresh and highest quality games that industry can offer. Because next E3 will have a new king and the "granny" will have to leave the grand stage. Same goes to Xbox 360 owners. This year is golden year for all 'Kinecters'. If you don't have Kinect though, then I don't know... Just play Halo 4 all year until the next Xbox comes Happy gaming and have a great time during E3 for everyone :)
No Blu-ray drive? Possibly,........... WTF? I stopped reading right here. Is the writer retarded? He must be. To actually think that sony would release a PS3 reresh without a blu ray drive that would alienate all the games on blu ray that have been released and would no longer be playable on the new ps3 model? At the same time abandoning another platform for their movie franchise to play on? Going to have to add this site to a list of banned/blocked sites to never visit again. They let anyone have a website and write for them these days.
Can the PS3 fellows tell me what "golden" PS3 games I am missing. I have a few friends, and our PS3s are collecting dust. This is a serious question... asshats need not reply. Thanks.
no comment -.-
Here are some games I've enjoyed: Uncharted 1-3 Metal Gear Solid 4 God of War III Ratchet & Clank (A Crack in Time especially) LittleBigPlanet (both were/are fun) Heavy Rain Gran Turismo 5 Infamous 2 (first was good, but I2 is miles ahead) Resistance 3 Killzone 3 MLB The Show (if you're a baseball fan, which I am) Warkawk (really fun with friends) The various collections are great as well if you didn't get a chance to play them on PS2. I wasn't overly impressed with Twisted Metal, and haven't had a chance to play Starhawk yet. But those are some I've enjoyed. Oh those, my favorites are MGS4, Uncharted 2, God of War III, LBP2, and R&C:aCiT.
Don't forget Demons Souls and Valkyria Chronicles two of my favorite games this gen.
you should know by now. there are like 10-20
"Golden" is going a bit far.
you might need to try doing the first part of your name..... Now your just trolling. Anybody who bought a ps3 and is letting it collect dust would have been traded or sold it by now. Gamestop is offering 150 bucks for em' right now! Or why don't you ask or google games to play on ps3. It has the same multiplats and a more plentiful and diverse exclusive library then the 360 and if one of em' don't suit your interest then I would high recommend doing the first part of your name because you have lost what it means to be a gamer.
He's clearly trolling, you're clearly a little deranged....or 12. Suggesting someone commit suicide over their irrational dislike of a plastic box, you take the moron cake. "and if one of em' don't suit your interest then I would high recommend doing the first part of your name because you have lost what it means to be a gamer." INCORRECT, I dislike some first party PS3 games. I still am fairly sure I still know what it means to be a "Gamer".
Well, my PS3 is collecting dust because I play all multiplatform titles on my 360, but I sure as hell am not going to sell it, because then how would I play The Last of Us or God of War: Ascension when they finally release?
^^^ Ignorant troll is ignorant and obvious.
@Ravenor i didnt say you had to like all ps3 exclusive because i dont. i said you should atleast find one that interests you. when someone says oh me and some friends all waisted our money buying a ps3 and never use them because there's no games then you might should kill yourself because it shows how stupid you are with money, and in this economy there's no room for people who waist money like that. But the suicideking was obviously trolling suggesting there's nothing to play on ps3. There's more to play on a ps3. @Yodacracker I'm pretty sure your just trolling too. You act as if The last of Us and God of War is the only thing to look forward to. There are tons of exclusive to go try. And if you dont wanna waist money buy the game used at gamestop, keep your receipt and return the game after you beat it. I could see if you worked all the time or had a life but to say your ps3 collects dust for 360's awesome library is stupid. I havent touched the 360 since i beat gears 3 and goofed off online for awhile. Other then halo 4 there's nothing to look forward to. I'll play all multiplats on ps3 and enjoy a vast exclusive library. And since I'm not twelve no kinect.
I'd say the same thing I tell anyone without anything to play on the 360. At this point of the generation, you should be able to download a whole lot of demos. Personally I got rid of my 360/kinect. If your not a halo/gears fan and you have a pc and ps3 there really isn't anything on 360. Skyrim and games like it are better on pc thanks to mods. I wish more companies would do pc to console mods like epic did with unreal tournament on the ps3. But like I was saying just download demos and find something you like if you truly can't find anything might as well get rid of it. I also prefer my ps3 for media. netflix, hulu plus, amazon video and vudu without having to pay microsoft's pay wall is a huge plus and reason enough to keep the dust of your ps3. I am actually enjoying amazon video more than I do netflix, I find the quality to be better. Hulu plus is great too, I could just use my pc that is connected to my hdtv but I like using a remote control over keyboard or game controller. I hope you can find something to play or view on your ps3 as I have.
Then can I have your PS3? I can always use another one, considering that you have no use for yours. Anyone who says that is either delusional or still living in 2006. Wait, you're a troll.
I am a PC gamer. Has been and will always be. But 2 years ago I bought a PS3 Slim for these games: - Killzone 2-3 - Uncharted 2-3 - Wipeout HD - Castle Crashers - Journey - Red Dead Redemption (this is NO exclusive, but it is not available on PC) Now I'm looking forward to The Last of Us. All the games described here are enough for me to justify buying a PS3. I don't see exclusives on 360 that want to make me purchase that console. (Most exclusives also appear on PC anyway, e.g. The Witcher 2) Also glad that online gaming is free, since I don't want to spend money monthly while I'm 70% of the time gaming on my PC.
As long as I never, ever have to see an attrocity like the cirque du soleil kinect presentation, ill be happy.
Don't believe anything this website says. They always make things up for hits.
i just hope sony will offer the ps3 move bundle 320gb for $150 that will help rise sales
I can see Sony focusing on, of course Exclusive games, Vita titles (maybe price drop) and do I have to say it? A hand full of Move compatible titles or full games. I personally can't see Sony talking or even hinting of new hardware this E3.
Website doesnt seem to load for me...Anyone know the problem??
if they do the streaming only box it would be fking epic. i like my traditional console, but having cloud based PS brand gaming, is just too good so it wont happen :(
Seriously all these E3 speculations are starting to get annoying.
To even speculate that a "slimmer" ps3 would have no bluray drive is just plain stupid, it's called breaking compatibility and cutting the nuts off sales of disc based games. I really hate when someone throws this out there, you could grab a blu-ray drive for as little as 30.00 full retail which means that it would prolly cost sony 10.00 a drive...hardly worth leaving out...
Gamescom if Sony does a revision and/or price cut.
Just a quick question for for you all 1. Why do you care about price cuts so much when you obviously already have a ps3?? 2. Why must you all constantly make game lists in every ps3 thread? 3. Every APP on the 360 has been customized for KINECT. Fora example with each movie service you can use voice commands to control. That's pretty neat. 4. As for Sony and their exclusives they have more every year but what really has it done for them? Boy Starhawk is off to a super start. Warhawk is probably the ps3 game that I have played the most. But Sony keeps making sequels to mediocre games (Killzone, Infamous, Resistance). 5. No one on this site liked Onlive but now its the best thing since sliced bread now that Sony may have some kind of partnership with them. 6. Microsoft must be doing something right because they have been more successful this gen than Sony and all of their exclusives. I own both and have since this gen begin and the Xbox experience is superior to Sony's this gen. I am really pissed at Sony for how Socom was handled this gen. that game could have been the centerpiece of PSN but they fucked it up........twice. But let you all tell it Sony can do no wrong. You Sony fanboys are pathetic but I respect your opinions.
My quick answers to you 1. Shut up! 2. Shut up! 3. Shut up! 4. Shut up! 5. Shut up! 6. Shut up!
1) Nothing wrong with price cuts, cheaper entry points for consumers is always a good thing. 2) Way to ignore the "game list" that the Xbox owner made in this comment section. PS3 gamers tend to make the list because there are still people who act like PS3 has no games. 3) Voice commands are neat I suppose, but is pressing a button and having an immediate response any worse than saying "Xbox...(insert command)? Its cool and futuristic in a way for sure, but is it worth missing out on, you know, games? 4) What have exclusives done for Sony? Maybe nothing, maybe they've lost money on every exclusive game they're released, from highs like the Uncharted series to lows like Lair, but the bottom line is, Sony has offered gamers the biggest variety in games. I'd rather have 4-5 solid exclusives a year, than 2 every two years. 5) Sony is merely (allegedly) adding another way to provide another service to gamers. What is better, making a big deal about having a YouTube app available on a paid service, or giving you access to another way to play games? 6) Here's what MS has done right this generation: They released their system first, it was cheaper, and they dipped into MS' infinite financial pockets to "persuade" third party studios to have previously announced PS3 exclusives go multi. Plus lets not forget that outside of Halo and Gears, MS exclusives have done average business. Alan Wake didnt' do as well as Heavy Rain (which had no US marketing campaign!). There's been like three Forza's on the 360, have all three combined even outsold GT5? I agree that Halo and Gears have reached a mainstream level that Uncharted never will, but let's face it, overall, Sony has done a better job catering to gamers than MS.
What a pathetic attempt to say something even remotely intelligent by an eXBox fannyboi. Have you no self respect or are you so bored because you have nothing new or exiting to play on a fast retiring console! I am sure these longs lists of games have you in a total frenzy as there are such a robust selection that no matter what question is asked it can be replied to with a list. What can the eXBox fannybois list/ 1)Halo 2)Halow 3)Halower 4)Halowest 5)Halow next 6)Halow to come
I could just tell you to listen to what stephmishot said, since those are some solid and perfectly logical answers, but I'll elaborate on what I personally think. Firstly, saying you respect those people's opinions is a lie since you find the things said and what they stand for to be pathetic, so don't pretend. 1) A lower priced console is good for consumers, and means there is more opportunity for people to play some amazing games that they didn't know the PS3 had, that Xbox, Wii or PC didn't. It expands the opportunity for multiplayer based games to grow and thrive some more. To some people it's an opportunity to boast that the console will now outsell its rival. It doesn't tend to happen, nor is it important. 2) Lists are things that all fanboys provide. It also affirms observations and facts in a good way. It's not something that only PS3 fans do, and if you think so, check look closer in the comments. 3) That's okay, no one is refuting that. If that is where their focus lies, that's how it's gonna be. Plus it's not like that takes a lot of effort, since Microsoft have their own API for voice recognition. 4) The case for Sony and their exclusives: read my final paragraph for this. Why are you so hung up about what these games are doing for Sony, and not what they have done and continue to do for gamers? Millions of people love these exclusives and Sony have either provided or housed them. Mediocre in your singular opinion. Killzone and inFamous are great. Resistance faltered in its second entry, but had Sony not green-lit a third one, Resistance 3 (which is the best in the series, at least as far as the campaign is concerned) wouldn't have happened. 5) OnLive. I don't want to buy it and I don't want to use their crappy controller. I can say that probably applies to many gamers on here. But it is a huge thing for Sony to have it on their console, nontheless. Streaming games is handy and if you can do it on your PS3, for no extra charge (unless it's a PS+ feature) the incentive at least exists. 6) More successful because they released their console a year in advance, have had the cheapest HD console for most of this generation, throw their money at third party companies and have heavily, HEAVILY marketed. Yet again, you are talking corporate success like it's more important to gamers than games. That my friend is what's appears more pathetic. Socom has been a let down since PS2. We can all admit this. Twisted Metal and Starhawk are the centerpieces of the PSN currently and are both excellent. If you'd have played them, you'd know that but I seriously doubt you have. And it's not that Sony can do no wrong, since obviously they have done, but even if they produce some duds, at least they are making a solid (in fact, more than so) contribution to new IPs, original games and content that is and always has been produced for their core audience. And a good percentage of them range from good to incredible. Think of that, as opposed to shifting a huge amount of focus on gimmicks and content that is detrimental to their core user base. They are taking more risks for the benefit of both the industry and gamers, opening up more avenues of choice for their consumers, and not performing solely based on their own bottom line. The current financial situation of both companies should tell you something, it really should. @ condemmedman (below) Aren't most games this gen just rinse and repeat then?
You guys keep banging on about exclusives but the only one which will get my money is the last of us the rest is just rinse and repeat .
Don't worry guys. I got this.
just dont lie to us again lol ff14 PS3 ver. still waiting oh and versus....
@ FinaL That's standard Sony, they announce games 3 to 4 years in advance before release. That's why they seem to announce so many exclusives, while other Companies announce exclusives that are coming out in a short time.
standard for SE that is lol
How about an affordable version of their 3d headset launched at E3 ? . Think that would be an instant win even with Nintendo showing Wii U hardware .
i sure hope this article is right, if they do pull out a new console it would sure be a bad timing for the econom's sake, not to mention our wallets too
