What Sony Needs to Show us During its E3 2013 Press Conference

Jayden Williams at Aussie-Gamer.com writes: "Back in February Sony gave the world an early glimpse at its forth video game home console, PlayStation 4, and with E3 just weeks gamers worldwide are eagerly waiting for Sony to show them more.

Traditionally E3 has been <em>the</em> place for hardware companies like Sony and Nintendo to showcase their next-generation consoles, though Sony bucked this trend by hosting its own "Future of PlayStation" event. And while a lot of ground was covering during the two or so hours, there's still a lot we don't know.

With Nintendo beating its Wii U and 3Ds drum loud and proud, and Microsoft gearing up to no doubt show off its next-generation system either at, if not before, E3, Sony has its work cut out to ensure gamers and media alike find reasons to care about what they have to say.

So, here are our top recommendations for Sony's should be showing us at its E3 2013 press conference." (PS4, Sony)

i like eveything you have said except that vita paragraph
"the dreamcast of portable arena"?!

you almost made me cry on that one... how can you say the dreamcast of portable arena, eventhough its not dead,
did you even say the same words to the 3ds in its 1st year?...
i mean its just barely past its 1st year.....
do you even pay attention to the news or games that will come out for the vita this year?
sony for sure will have something for the psvita at e3 same as for the 3rd parties, they will support this handheld no matter what the media and the harsh critics for it says ^_^

Even if they did said..."the Dreamcast of portable arena"

I loved my old Dreamcast!! I must of put 1,000s of hours in Soul Caliber!!!
The good thing, the Vita is picking up some speed.

you would think that after a few hundred hours you would learn how to spell it. /jk
Soldierone  +   455d ago
Just ordered a few games, and pre-ordered some more. Sure seems dead to me ;) haha

Ignore the hate, just enjoy the best handheld on the market.
rainslacker  +   455d ago
That should actually be a compliment. Dreamcast is highly regarded as one of the best consoles ever made, and had an amazing selection of games for it's short time. Sony isn't in a position of having to drop out of the console market, so it won't have a short life, which is all the better for us.:)

Someone...
might have told the author, that Sony may potentially be holding an event prior to E3 to show off the console itself. It's actually suppose to be happening in May. So I wouldn't really consider this a real issue.

Another qualm the author expresses, is the show of more first party titles. We already know that their are countless exclusives from Sony large 1st-2nd party in the works. while I'm sure we will see games coming to the console in the near future. Sony is probably trying to alot of these versions up and running so people can experience them on the show floor.

A man would expect ND to be there since their one team hasn't shown anything since Uncharted 3 which will have been 2 years ago come PS4 release. Also GG and SSM have other teams that have been working on titles. MM hasn't shown an actual game either and LBP2 came out in January 2011. There are a number of smaller first party studios that have been dormant but a man doesn't pay as much attention to them.
Minato-Namikaze  +   455d ago
I thought the one tea is doing the last of us and team 2 did uncharted 3. So it goes......

Team 1 - Uncharted 2
Team 2 - Uncharted 3
Team 1 - The last of us
Team 2 - PS4 title.

(i could be completely wrong though)
grailly  +   455d ago
that's how I figured it works. I'm not a big fan of UC3, even though I love UC2 and can't be more exited for the last of us. I hope the PS4 game will turn out all right.
Jaqen_Hghar  +   455d ago
huh? A man was just saying that one of their teams (didn't even know they were specifically labeled) has been free since Uncharted 3 so he agrees with your assessment of the projects each has handled. A man also hears that they work with each other a lot however he remembers them splitting after Uncharted 2. Uncharted 3 didn't take 4 years to make.
Minato-Namikaze  +   455d ago
Ahh, i see. you said "their one team". I thought you meant Team one or A which people commonly refer to as the team behind uncharted 2 and the last of us, and the 2 team or B team is the team behind uncharted 3 and which many people think are getting the woork started on the ps4 title. Sorry for the mix up.
Donnieboi  +   455d ago
I wanna see the ps4's body (meaning the console, of course :P)
yesmynameissumo  +   455d ago
Games. Show me games. Everything else is secondary.
ApolloTheBoss  +   455d ago
1 New Exclusives
2 Worldwide Vita Price Drop
3 Worldwide memory stick price drop
4 Reasonable price (maybe two SKUs $399 and $499)

^^^If this happens Sony will assume absolute dominance.
Godmars290  +   455d ago
JRPGs and sci-fi titles please?

Not first person...
The Meerkat  +   455d ago
Can we mix the two and have a new ZOIDS JRPG?
RBlue_Desire  +   455d ago
Vanquish with RPG elements?

Yes, Please.
Enate  +   455d ago
I pray we may be so lucky mars as to get a game even close to Xenogears this this coming generation.
avengers1978  +   455d ago
I would like Sony to address psn weather or not your account info will transfer over to PS4 and if PSPlus will transfer over. Then show me games lots of games and a price and release date
Jaqen_Hghar  +   455d ago
It transferred over to Vita (both) so a man can only guess that PS4 will get them too.
lovegames718  +   455d ago
A man ponders all the hate towards Sony. A man realizes it is jealousy and envy. A man understands that some ppl cant afford multiple consoles and knows that it kills them when their system of choice isnt giving them the variety and quality games that they crave year after year!

A man already knows given Sonys excellent history with providing us with killer software that continuously wins awards in graphics, game play and innovation that those will not be lacking on Ps4 (cough cough Uncharted, killzone, lbp etc.....)
Jaqen_Hghar  +   455d ago
has a man met a man?
FreakyFox  +   455d ago
Apart from what we already know i would like to see a really nice looking console, and then we are set.

PS3 models were not the best looking consoles in the world, PS2 first model on the other hand was nice.
RBlue_Desire  +   455d ago
how could you say~ PS3 models were not best looking.
I loved the look of PS Fat, more so than ps2.

Though xbox slim looks better than rest.
4lc4pon3  +   455d ago
the PS2 was awful looking
RBlue_Desire  +   455d ago
Show me how the console looks and gameplay trailers.
US8F  +   455d ago

4lc4pon3  +   455d ago
they dont need to show me anything. Its already mine regardless.
abzdine  +   455d ago
games, only games!!
they should keep their money to exclusively make games and pay for games!

i want to be blown away by first party studios and some japanese awesome IPs.
Other than to play games or watch blurays i dont really use PS3 anything else
Tzunoy  +   455d ago
games for god sake this is why we buy consoles for games :)))
azshorty2003  +   455d ago
Since they already explained the console, I'm really hoping they stack up on just showing us the games and game demos. I don't care what it looks like. Sure they'll show it and that'll be cool. But it doesn't weigh on how much I want it. I'm buying it no matter what.

keep the usual bar graphs and statics to a minimum, and come out swinging with solid awesome games.
