What to expect from Sony at E3 2012: Vita price cut, Infamous 3, and Killzone 4

Steven Strom of writes: "Sony has already confirmed that those attending E3 this year will be “…the first to witness the launch of more than 20 new gaming experiences.” With such high profile franchise exclusives like God of War: Ascension, LittleBigPlanet Karting and Playstation All-Stars: Battle Royale already having been revealed, we the SideQuesting crew are guessing that Sony’s press conference is going to be all about new games. And with Sony’s own admitted awareness that their latest portable needs more games, this could be the company’s big chance to make a hard push for new Vita software.

With the tagline “The Future of Gameplay and Innovation”, it doesn’t seem like much of a stretch to guess that Sony might also be touting some of their handheld’s exclusive features like cross-system play/purchasing." (E3, God of War: Ascension, inFamous: Second Son, Killzone 4, PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale, PS Vita, PS3, Sony)

One could only hope.

i would doubt new IP's, but im sure they will show ports for killzine, little big planet, etc.

Under a rock, this guy^^

FYI there is a LittleBigPlanet game for the Vita and its an original title, not a port. Same with Killzone. If you even know what a port is.

Let me give you an example:
Uncharted:GA would be an original Vita game.
Gravity Rush would be an new IP.
UMvC3 would be a port.

There More You Know!

So expect new IPs and original titles.

Prophet Persistantthug Prediction......
BATTLE.NET coming to the PS3.......first game probably Diablo 3.

i must admit, I would rather they just left Resistance for a while after the new PSV one and focused on something else.

Santa Monica are working on a new FPS so see where that goes first in terms of being a new IP.

As for what is not mentioned, new Quantic Dream game coupled with a potential Syphon Filter announcement would be great. Also, if Tales of XIllia is coming to the West it would be nice for Sony to give it some mention especially with Graces F having released recently. It might be worth it for Sony to try and get the series looking like something only on PS (even though this is not true).

Of course OSV software is really what I am interested to see. I am hoping Sony is going to pull all the punches in this regard.

I don't agree with quite a few of the predictions.

But I think that was probably the best pre-E3 article I've read so far. Well thought out...well reasoned...well done that man!

A nice break from the usual fare we've seen to date!

Now if only we shared the same opinions.

Kingscorpion1981  +   1356d ago
Just curious what ever happen to Syphon Filter 4?? Weren't they suppose to reveal that a couple of months ago?
stage88  +   1356d ago
I definitely don't think we'll see Killzone 4.
I love the series but to me it feels like K3 hasn't been out too long. What i'd like is Killzone 4 to be a PS4 Launch title. Now that would be awesome!

Not another Killzone. Sony should get correct dev team to create a proper socom
AKA  +   1356d ago
I have been saying this for years ,even before S4... GG are the perfect devs for SOCOM, they did this before KILLZONE

But for SOCOM to b a winer it need to be big in quantity and quality and very hardcore.

A GTA V demonstration or at least a new trailer,The Getaway 3 trailer and a bunch of Vita game announcements and i'll be happy.
etownthree  +   1356d ago
Up until I read this article, I wasn't thinking of getting a Vita.

But now I know it's just a matter of time.

They should STF up about price cut, it just came out. Why aren't they asking for apple for a price cut, those things are overprice.
bobtheimpaler  +   1356d ago
I'd welcome a KZ4 if it means the series will be back on track catering to the hardcore rather than trying to be a 'me too' COD clone.

Meaning the importance is back on skilled gunplay (More recoil and bullet tracking variables), health packs, better team play and skill (like working with another to take down sentries rather than people bitching when they can't stupidly go lone wolf). More dynamic and open single player with less emphasis on scripting and player hand holding BS. I don't want the last level to be some weak on-rails crap where all I do is hold down a button. Radec was so much cooler. GG should seriously watch ultra-violent Paul Verhoeven and WW2 movies for inpiration and avoid the family friendly Michael Bay approach of COD. KZ needs to be realistically grounded, gritty and brutal.
LOL_WUT  +   1355d ago
What about starship troopers? Thats a good one also and it reminded me of killzone in a way same thing with Enemy at the gates. And yes Radec was a badass.
Lovethedead1777best  +   1356d ago
been waiting a long time for infamous and killzone 4, i hope they are right about this
kreate  +   1356d ago
I do want a price cut.

but i dont want a infamous3 or a killzone4.
KingofGambling  +   1356d ago
If GG announce a KZ4 and a new IP, than it's pretty much the same thing ND is doing. Splitting the develop team into two teams, one developing a current franchise and the other developing a new IP.
PersonMan  +   1355d ago
Here's what I want:

Infamous 4
Infamous Vita
The Last Guardian

More Vita games! Especially side scrollers. I want more games like Little Big Planet Vita, Limbo, Rayman Origins, Trine and Braid for the Vita! I mean, come on, how awesome would Trine 2 be on the Vita instead of the PS3?
