They must be pretty pissed with all the leaks. Sony,Microsoft and Nintendo suprisingly no leaks yet, they must be running a tight ship.

mirrors edge 2???....lol
animegamingnerd  +   757d ago
yeah aside from some rumors we have no idea what the big 3 will announce
azshorty2003  +   757d ago
Oh don't worry, there's still just under a week to go. This week is almost as exciting as E3 with all the leaks
Relientk77  +   757d ago
Yeah I mean I feel for them, if my stuff was leaked, I'd be upset too

Battlefield 5 announcement - you heard it here first.

I was hoping for an HD remake of Pinball Fantasies
OrangePowerz  +   757d ago
Hope they have good surprises and not the crappy "surprise we have exclusive DLC for console Z"

cough cough Mirrors Edge 2
Punch-o  +   757d ago
Bad Company 3! wishful thinking.lol I've put so many hours in BC2 on PS3/PC. Mirrors Edge would be great also.
porkChop  +   757d ago
Mirror's Edge 2 would be nice, though I'm a bit worried about it. When EA talked about the potential of a sequel they said that it was hard to do. They said the game had parkour and shooting, and that they weren't sure which direction they should go in, or which direction gamers wanted. To me that sounds like BS.

The game was a parkour game, it just featured some very poorly designed shooting that was completely optional, and the game even encouraged you not to use any weapons. So to me it seems like DICE wanted to make another parkour game, while EA wanted a shooter with parkour tacked on so they could market it against CoD. Just like they did with Medal of Honor, and just like they did with BF3 SP.

So if Mirror's Edge 2 does get announced, I hope it's actually Mirror's Edge 2, not Mirror of Duty: Parkour Edition.
OrangePowerz  +   757d ago
Couldn't agree more. Mirrors Edge is a great parkour game and doesnt need shooting.
Outside_ofthe_Box  +   757d ago
All we can do is pray and hope that we don't hear things like wanting to make the game "accessible" and other such terms when used to sort of indirectly say that they are making another CoD clone.

Publishers need to remember that if people want to play a CoD game they would just buy the actual game. They better stick to what actually made gamers want a Mirrors Edge 2 in the first place which is the parkour which is obvious to everyone except EA apparently.

Yeah, I played through it and never fired a single round and enjoyed it just fine. Sure it wasn't perfect, but a lot of new franchises rarely are these days on the first attempt.

Mirrors edge 2 - I'll cry if its xbone only!
Because I'm not touching a spybox with walled garden.

So you won't touch an Xbox this whole upcoming gen? Not even if a friend has it? You won't even touch their console either?? Not even if they come out with one of the most revolutionary games ever?
MrSwankSinatra  +   757d ago
"most revolutionary games ever" wishful thinking
theWB27  +   757d ago
@MrSwankSinatra
"one of the most revolutionary games ever" you made a very singular, hypothetical question plural...annnd since I game on all platforms I will wishfully think these games come to fruition. But thanks for chiming in : )
AnotherProGamer  +   757d ago
I have a bad feeling it will be

I saw some rumors that Microsoft and EA agreed for DRM on Xbox One and EA, and Sony didn't agree with them so EA would give Mircosoft 2 exclusive games and a lot of DLC
dumahim  +   757d ago
I seem to recall Sony saying that it'd be up to the publisher if they were going to enforce any sort of restrictions. I don't see that as a reason for EA going exclusive.
DeadlyFire  +   756d ago
Don't be stupid EA is developing this.
SignifiedSix91  +   757d ago
Give me Mirrors Edge 2 and I'll be happy.
Iceman_Nightmare  +   757d ago
Mirrors Edge 2, what took you so long DICE?
OrangePowerz  +   757d ago
Kept you waiting, huh?
Iceman_Nightmare  +   757d ago
I would get goosebumps if at the end of the trailer you see faith come to the screen and tell us the audience "kept you waiting, huh?" ... Yes, I've been begging for this game for too long. Let's hope its as good as the original, or even better. I loved the soundtracks that were made by SolarFields. Hope DICE keeps SolarFields as the maker for the soundtrack of the game. Remember the last mission The Shard, that is my favorite mission in videogaming history
OrangePowerz  +   757d ago
I love Mirrors Edge and the soundtrack with the main theme was awesome.
Ethereal  +   757d ago
All I want is Mirror's Edge 2. Please!

I was born a shotgun in my hand....

By the gun I'll make my final stand...
Grimhammer00  +   757d ago
Yes. I will not play an xbone beyond a store kiosk.

Their are factors:
-it's a spybox. Out of principle I don't wanna support their lvl of DRM and targeted marketing.
-pay to play online has always been un-consumer friendly. When your peers are offering online play free.
-they abandon hardcore gamers.
-they fracture the gaming community by buying tined exclusives.
-they have ads everywhere on a machine I not only paid for that didn't have spam - but they also expect me to pay a sub!

Those are facts.
Here's the reasons I believe but can't prove:
-their DRM practices will make their games obsolete when they decide to shutdown verification servers.
-Xbox live will see an increase in price
-Xbox one will have a sub to own that will fleece buyers - but initially it'll look so great that many will forget that the spybox is a total invasion of privacy!

MS can tell us all they will not do this or do that with Kinect 2.0. Reality is they've already been caught once spying with Skype to focus ads. The spying isn't about ones ego....as individuals we are not that interesting. It's how they'll store this info, how it will be used and their sad "sorry" when hackers gain access.

So....$10 Xbox one with free halo, gears, fable and forza.....and it cures cancer.....I'd still pass.

Ok....if it cures cancer I'm in. ;)
