What Sony Needs To Show At E3

Everyday Digitals - After Wednesday’s PS4 press conference I felt pretty good about the direction Sony was taking the Playstation brand. It’s been a rocky 6 years for the PS3 but they’ve seemed to finally find their stride with software/services in the past couple of years. In the early days of the PS3 there was complaints from multiple developers about their dev tools and the architecture of their platform. Their proprietary chip, the Cell created a steep learning curve to create games with, resulting in sub-par 3rd party ports. Their Playstation Network was far behind their competitions when it came to features and accessibility. Over the years Sony has continued to add features and value to their online services via firmware updates. (PS4, Sony, Tag Invalid)

I honestly just want Versus 13,I want it exclusive so it's made to take full advantage of the console it's being made on.
mushroomwig  +   674d ago
Don't hold your breath, I've been reading statements like that since the game was first announced.

This gen made me lose interest in FF games for good. I don't care about them anymore...

Shin Megami Tensei/Persona games are much better jrpg's. They never get scores of less than 9/10 (usually get mostly all 10's).

AND anything else by Atlus, Xseed, NIS, Level-5, etc.

Square of today isn't even comprised of the same people. The "new" Square is a different company entirely. They stink at making jrpg's now.

I want more than just one, greedy me....

The last guardian, SSM new IP, GG new IP, GT6, Naughty Dog new IP or UC4, anything MGS...Just to name a few exclusives...

And then ***Media Molecule***, I love the potential of what they showed...

A Zbrush type sculpting app with at the ready rigging and live puppetry tools....

They will probably have a full scale World, gameplay etc,etc... little big planet type of game but in a full 3D environment is what I am betting on, and hoping for...

A take on Mindcraft.... But far more complex, and this is just a tease...

looks like the next logical step in their play/create/share format...create in realtime via PSMove, you can interact with your creation with friends.

share models, build scenarios,
animate puppets...

I think this is going to be something very, very special...

I want to see this in depth very much.....

there was definitely an argument for that when comparing PS3 to 360, but this early in the generation I don't think it will count. maybe later on in the generation.

Square poured a lot of money into FNC so Versus will probably still remain a PS3 exclusive.

and in any case this new Final Fantasy (most probably called Final Fantasy XV) will be using the full Luminous engine, not just a piece of it for the lighting a-la in Versus XIII.

NBA Live might make a comeback.

They have so many top notch first party developers that either have a game coming within the next four months or have been suspiciously quiet. E3 (or the weeks leading up to it) should be a cavalcade of reveals and the finer details of PS4's OS, network features, sharing functions etc. should also be ironed out.

"-New PS3 UI"

ummm....thats never going to happen anymore, especially since sony is moving on to PS4.
gta2800  +   674d ago
It was a typo lol. I love my PS3 but it's not going to hurt me to move on to the PS4. So ready for next gen!
iWishTifaWasReal  +   674d ago
for f*ck sake.

any Final Fantasy.

and Versus is still coming to the ps3 as an exclusive.

and to piss off xbox fans. ensure we only get exclusive contents on Destiny. and that content is something major NOT exclusive weapon, vehicle, etc etc

What sony needs to show lol @need they already know what they're doing
smashcrashbash  +   674d ago
Best part about announcing the PS4 now? They don't have to introduce it again at E3. They can dedicate their time for everything else including more PS4 games.They made a good decision revealing it so early.If they had to introduce the PS4 at E3 they would have to take up precious time that they could be showing us PS3, PS4 and VITA games
DarkBlood  +   674d ago
Legend of dragoon
FF versus
Legend of dragoon
Uncharted 4
Legend of dragoon
more turn base rpgs

did i already mention Legend of Dragoon? lol :P
kalkano  +   674d ago
"more turn base rpgs"

Why won't N4G let me agree 200 times!?
DigitalSmoke  +   674d ago
Sony needs to do nothing except what they are already doing on the PS3.
They brought a console going to a steep nose dive back on track acting like its all part of the spectacular show that is PS3.

Greatness can not be held back, not by media, and not by the mediocre minds that play ass consoles.

Uncharted, Killzone, GT, GOW, LBP, Agent, The Last Guardian, So forth...

PS4 fellas,...Here we GO!

Im telling u now. Naughty Dog will show something that will make E3 go crazy. There is a reason the 1st Team of naughty dog didnt show anything & I just have a feeling they will shock everyone at E3 with either a new ps4 IP or Uncharted 4 on ps4. Sony will save the big guns for e3.
EverydayDigitals  +   674d ago
I hope you're right! It wouldn't be a Sony E3 without Naughty Dog.
Bathyj  +   674d ago
Doesnt Last of Us release the day after E3?

Imagine the hype thats gonna be surrounding Sony.

Showing more PS4 games.
The reveal of the actual console.
Near perfect reviews of LoU rolling in and everyone waiting to play it.
And Naughty Dog showing a new game along with one from Santa Monica, footage for inFamous and an actual title from Media Molecule.

Gee, I cant understand why Sony wouldnt want to show all their cards in Febuary. /s

Just keep showing us games, games, and more games. I mean, we're gamers right? Console where the games are at is where the gamers will be.
Hicken  +   674d ago
Well, some people prefer to chat with each other in parties instead. Or talk about sales like it means something to them personally.
dasbeer88  +   674d ago
Well said!! I don't need more apps and services (Yes I'm looking at you Microsoft) for consoles, but rather have fun and exciting games. Oh and if I were to need Netflix or watch CNN or any of that crap, I would just use my fucking computer.

While I agree with you, games are and should be the #1 priority, Sony is a business and in order for them to afford to keep making awesome games they need attract more than just hardcore Sony fans. I'm not suggesting super casual games but they need to make the PS4 an attractive box for those that like to game as well as satisfy their media needs. I like where they are going with their cloud services (streaming, sharing video and broadcasting). These type of features are a step forward not only for existing gamers but may attract others into the fold. My problem is I'm not sure they can fulfill those promises in a timely manner.

Jack Tretton saying their cloud services are "aspirations" doesn't sound like he plans on having any of this ready anytime soon. That worries me, because Microsoft are definitely not resting on their laurels when it comes to media or Xbox Live. I expect them to come out swinging.
Bathyj  +   674d ago
No, apparently we're all modern art critics and we dont care about the games we're going to be playing, we only care about what the box playing them looks like.
C-Thunder  +   673d ago
I like being able to use Netflix, Amazon, etc and hope they keep adding cool services like that. But I hope they downplay the importance of it, kind of like they did during the presser - just icing on the gaming cake. "oh yeah, we have a camera for the controller and here's a bunch of apps on the system...anyway, back to the awesome games"
Killzoner99  +   674d ago
Sony could just redo the PS4 conference from the other night and still win E3. To be honest no one cares about E3 anymore , especially since companies like Sony can just have there own shows and say what they want to say. Sony nailed it so hard with the PS4 reveal , they sent the tech world in a spin. Trust me Microsoft is scrambling right now throwing together another RROD machine just so they can match half at what Sony'e offering.
EverydayDigitals  +   674d ago
I disagree. I've watched the conference three times now and if you pay attention, a lot of what their saying is stuff they WANT to do. Wanting and having software and the backend that actually works are two entirely different things. It took Sony roughly 3 years to get PSN where it is now. They can't afford to take that long to bring in these features they mentioned on Wednesday. E3 will be the true test to see what really will be available to gamers come November.
Silly gameAr  +   674d ago
I just want to see if Agent is real, some new IP's, the evolution of PSN, the console itself, and the price of the console, and I'll be satisfied.
TheOneEyedHound  +   674d ago
A release date for MGS GZ, a gameplay video.
A release date fir the Ps4
The Last Guardian as a Ps4 launch
And please you're psn purchase games being avalible for download on your ps4.
