Phil Spencer had a few interesting details to share today on Twitter, mentioning multiple unannounced games in the works and in concept phase, including Japanese ones and something on Age of Mythology.
I really do wonder what MS has under their sleeves. I reckon it'll be their best E3 yet.
I hope Sony is ready for it. They are so quiet it kinda freaks me out. MS is in the corner right now with their backs up against the wall...dangerous for a company like that. My personal favorite surprise of E3 was the portal 2 announcement during Sony's conference...freaking amazing setup. Caught me completely off-guard . Chills. http://www.youtube.com/watc... Just amazing when you read Gabe Newell's quote about the ps3. I need more! I want Sony to take one in the gut so they don't get complacent! I think this has the setup to be the most surprising E3 in history. From all sides.
You've got the right mindset. "MS is in the corner right now with their backs up against the wall...dangerous for a company like that. " Yeah precisely. Still, Sony cannot afford to slip either. They will go all out at this year's E3 because Sony's future as a company is also dependent on the success of the PlayStation brand. I expect (and hope) for a bloody battle between the two.
Getting giddy at the possibilities. Sony is lucky they usually go after Microsoft...they may be able to throw in something last minute to try to tame the fire. Ted Price on the Xbox stage last year was definitely a big surprise as well. I hope there are a ton of impact moments like that. I really want Sony to unload the games. It is time to show! Ah the excitement is going to kill me. We are so winning right now.(all people who play)
I don't know what do you expect from sony but at E3 we will probably get - New trailer for Uncharted 4 - Demo for the order - VR - GG new IP or TLG the rest will be indie and 3rd Party stuff. honestly if expect more than that then you will be disappointed.
FFXIII on Xbox 360 was by far the biggest E3 announcement ever. Just check the neogaf-thread. @Dark LOL for TLG I am reading this for years now. Every E3 will feature it :-) It might happen some day, but this, FFvXIII and Agent are on every Sony-list for about 5 years now.
They have no other choice to talk about what's coming out in the future. That's why everyday this guy is talking about how they have unannounced games. To stay relevant.
@Dark...I'm pretty sure VR will be shown at GDC. And as for the rest of your odd list; that would be the least anyone has ever shown ever...Not going to happen. We will get at least 2 completely new games announced for release before E3 2015. And some teasers for new ones without a release date. Probably shown gameplay for the Shadow of the Beast that was overlooked by everyone. Agree on Uncharted, obviously the order will be shown. But honestly I am not even talking about those. I'm talking about things no one expects... Sony or MS announcing an exclusive next gen version of GTA5 for example. Or Agent finally making an appearance-at MS conference. Or Half Life 3 somehow being shown. As for the last guardian... what if they announced a Holiday 2014 release out of nowhere. Or what if Microsoft shows a super secret VR system that no one knew about. I am talking things that right now seem impossible or very highly unlikely... See portal 2 announcement...See final fantasy 13 announcement. Even Sony's used games thing from last year...I want to see the gloves come off from MS and Sony. Ms did it the first few years of 360 while Sony took it in the chin. Sony is doing it now while MS is taking it in the gut.
I think Microsoft will do what Sony did last gen with the PS3 in terms of exclusives and big name games. Yes Microsoft made a mistake but its not always a bad thing. Sony needed to make the mistake last gen because to me they were not exciting me with the PS3 and this time round its changed. For me I want to see all 3 have a slip when they are at the top as this reminds them at its the customer who has the final say and keeps them all on guard. Cant wait for E3 im expecting Sony, Microsoft and Nintendo to have a big one. Well not long until Titanfall, Mario Kart 8 and DriverClub. Great time to jump to the next gen console you want.
Microsoft will again just buy every 3rd party publishers to not go to PS e3 conference, as usual.
I hope Sony doesn't hold back. Lately Sony hasn't been announcing that many AAA titles, which worries me. I understand Siny wants to open the indie market up, but sometimes they shove it down your throat. All the best for the both.
Wow. What? MS has weakest studios out of the big 3. Their studios are weaker than last gen. Look at the facts not desperate wishes
How are they weaker? MS created or purchased a load of studios. They own 22. In comparison Sony have 13. Facts my arse
Domination--- I believe his point is valid- Sony's first party studios are a lot more battle tested and cherished. I would easily stack 13 Sony developers against 22 MS owned ones...it is the talent that matters. Lionhead and Turn10 are the only ones that have been around for a long time and are associated with xbox deeply..343 has a ways to go, bungie left. (rare is not the same company)
Septic you know what they say about a cornered dog, it will bite.in a way i'm glad they are in this position( for now)..it will make them invest more in the right stuff i.e games ,games and more games. its definitely going to be the best E3 ever, Ms will strike back in a big way this time...and i cant wait to see how Sony and Nintendo will respond. Age of Mythology is one of my favorite games of all time im so glad MS isnt ruling out an xbox one version.what could the other unannounced games be?..i really want to knw more, very curious now especially the japanese games.
Wow coming out guns blazing with games great stuff.
Lost Odyssey 2, Phantom Dust and Platnium Games New IP is my guess.
I hope the Platinum game is Kamiya led and as good if not better than Bayo 2 just to see him come out with some brilliant quotes on Twitter.
I think this E3 will blow us all away, Sony and MS both will have great surprises for us!
Lost odyssey 2 and I buy a xbone
MS and the XB1 is having all the momentum at the moment.
What, because Titanfall came out? Haha. Looking at the PS4 sales, I'm pretty sure Sony has all the momentum at the moment, MS need to bring their A game at e3. I for one cannot wait, there's bound to be some huge announcements all round.
Sony is doing good right now with the PS4, but at the E3 they will also have to bring big games and not indie games. People have big hopes for Sony right now... also for MS. They both can not slip up.
Well said No -Limit bubs up its snowballing into gaming overload.
Lol only a blind person would say this.
Yeah the momentum of a freight train heading for a cliff!
Dream squishier. j/k On topic: The fact that MS is now the under dog is good for the industry. There are a bunch of articles saying this will be the last console generation / this generation will fall off faster than previous gen in console sales, etc. MS is out to a great start but Sony can't manufacture PS4's fast enough. This puts MS in a corner that they most likely didn't see themselves in. Sony is pulling away from them. That means MS really has to break out that check book and pull of a couple shockers. This next E3 "COULD" (quotes and caps because we hope this nearly every year but personally I think MS and Sony both have to let it all hang out this year) be the best show in ages. MS like no other year since they entered this industry has to swing at everything thrown at them and not hope for a homerun but a grand slam. But then again Sony has been dead silent. That makes me wonder what their hiding up their sleeves. Especially with Jack Tretton stepping down. Man I despise hyperbole and I almost never say this BUT I am on the edge of my seat waiting for E3 2014. I just hope neither side is disappointed.
If having ALL the momentum means they have more games in development and are outselling the competition in any one country, then that would be true. They have less than half of ALL of the momentum.
Let's hope Lost Odyssey 2 is the exclusive they plan on unveiling. LO was criminally underrated and one of M$ best exclusives, make it happen.
im sorry but the whole going in to battle with toddlers and your grand children at that was just weak the characters were lacking and corny too i think i stopped towards the end of the second disk hope they get better story writers the gameplay was good surprisingly the best rpg last gen imo but thats not saying alot.
Chromehounds 2 would be nice.. that game was ahead of it's time in so many ways and would be the perfect fit for Microsoft to push their cloud based servers.
Lost Odyssey 2 would be perfect :D
I have a feeling that unannounced japanese game is from Mr. Sakaguchi
Not having the X1 out in Japan for the launch of Ground Zeros probably isn't a great move by MS.
Lol at georgenancy so by me not liking big bang theory my relationship is terrible ,wow that's low and a little presumptuous my fiancée happens to like the show I don't my baby daughter is asleep hope when she wakes up the family unit is still together.
Your not alone, I have tried watching BBT because its supposed to "speak to me" but it just seems forced.Do not like it. On topic I feel that if MS doesn't nail E3 this year its going to be a rough generation for them.
I felt the same way, but since it went into syndication, I'll get home from work, flip on TBS, and check my phone for stuff. Over time, it grew on me, and I now watch it weekly.
I hope Japanese developers learned from last gen when MS was moneyhatting exclusives left and right only to abandon them and left them in ruin. Take Hideo Baba's lead.
I read some guys predictions the other day, just a random thread I found, think it was on polygon if you want to check. He suggested something that seemed bat shit crazy to me at first, but the more I thought about it, the more logical it became. Microsoft buys out, or signs some sort of exclusive console publishing deal with their third party equivalent Electronic Arts. At first I was like, no way that's nuts. But looking at facts, ea has now ponied up two big titles for the Xbox one to be packaged with, one of which is a system exclusive.ea promotes most of their games with the xbox logo, even though their multiplats. And we keep hearing about this "great partnership" between the two companies. Also, ea gets the glory of saving the xbox brand, along with a substantial sum of money, and microsoft gets a murderers row of the best selling games. Madden, fifa, nhl, and nba live(sucks) round out their annual sports line up and you can add the upcoming ufc game. Also ea games has titles like need for speed and ssx(revival could be cool). But more importantly to microsoft, Battlefield, the star wars license, titanfall(unless respawn takes off with it), and Bioware. What does bioware bring to the table? Kotor, jade empire, mass effect, Dragon age! Four of the best western rpg games/franchises ever. Not saying it will happen, but it would be a huge surprise, and would definitely turn momentum in microsofts favor.
Can't see it. From any angle you look at it MS buying EA would be a bad idea for them. An exclusivity deal may the closest we'd get - but even then I can't see that EA would go for it as the PS4 is currently well on top in sales numbers. MS would have to pay EA at least enough to cover what EA could have made by launching multi-plat (and not just PS4, but also handhelds and mobile).
Microsoft would not see it as a big enough profit-maker to justify how much it'd cost.
ntkml has been right so far, so its safe to say one of the Japanese exclusives is a Platinum IP.
Man.. Poor platinum then... Nobody is going to buy their games... I just hope this is not going to happen. Who develops their games for a company that is too stupid to sell theirconsole
Maybe, maybe not. P* games have a huge following based on their gameplay and repertoire, so it kinda makes sense for MS to get them to make an exclusive, especially if they want to grab of the console sales in Japan. My only concern is that they might be bought by MS to work for them if their IP becomes a massive success. They're a really good multiplatform group of developers.
I'm a huge Plantinum Games fan, well Vanquish fan...and if this turns out true...that would not be too cool, as I only have a Playstation
Let's just hope for the best then.
I'll give MS some credit here. They seem to be teasing some kind of exciting game almost every week. While sony is just being extremely quiet about everything to the point that it's worrying me. They really haven't hinted anything at all for the ps4.
Now that Titanfall has been released, there is nothing exclusive to look forward to on the bone for a long time. So I expect to see many "future" articles like this one to try and distract bone owners from the upcoming drought.
Hopefully MS got the games if they don't there screwed!
They already have some really good games out. I cant chose between PVZ or Titanfall
Just give everyone including Sony fans a bottle of that special homemade 'Secret Sauce' and than everybody will be a fan. They will all be hooked.
Shenmue III. There have been so many rumblings about it over the past year that I actually DO think it will get made. I never thought that before.
Shenmue III? On Xbox One? Sorry to disappoint you mate, but don't count on it. 1) Those "rumblings" have been more concerned with Sony than any other company. 2) Phil Spencer has actively come out saying they have no interest in meeting Sega halfway to make Shenmue happen on Xbox. Shenmue II came about on the original Xbox cause Peter Moore was vying for a place at Microsoft, after Sega announced they were bowing out of hardware. After the game bombed on Xbox, there's no way Sega would make the same mistake again. https://twitter.com/TeamYu/... 3) Whilst, Sony executives and employees have expressly stated their enthusiasm in getting that game made. They have a "giant list" of games they have gathered that their fans would like to see, and Shenmue might as well be #1 - http://kotaku.com/sonys-gia... 4) Sega will not just hand over their license to the company that pays them the most for Shenmue. It has a legacy at their company, and they'd want to see it in the best hands possible. Since Xbox One is likely to pretty much bomb in Japan, Sega wouldn't put it there by any cost. PS4 is already leading the way in terms of success and global sales, it's an easy sell to put it on PS4, the platform where it would have the best opportunity to do well, and the most potential in terms of performance. If Sega were going to make it themselves, they would put it everywhere, but this isn't happening. I'd LOVE to see it on the Wii U - but it's not happening. 5) Yu Suzuki is good friends with PS4 lead architect Cerny, and both have an affinity for creating Japanese games in-house for their respective companies. Cerny is translating Suzuki's Shenmue post-mortem at GDC 2014. This is around pretty much the exact same time as OPM reveals a new game for PS4 from a "series of massive significance". http://www.gdconf.com/news/... http://gematsu.com/2014/02/... 6) Watch this video. it explains everything: http://www.youtube.com/watc...
I had certainly heard things regarding the PS4 as well. Ultimately I'd actually prefer it to be on Sony's system. So here's hoping you're right.
New AOM.. do it! Loved the first one
Crackdown 3 realistic looking this time!!!!!
People keeps saying LO2 which I doubt...(wishful thinking, I want that sh1t too)..I'm actually playing 4 consoles right now...but would love a next-gen JRPG. The xbox 360 had like 3 within the first 1 year.
I know it's been announced, but I hope they show Gears. An open world Gears of War with an initial concept video @ E3 - based on Azure to make it run seamlessly with hundreds/thousands of players. This could be how they continue the GoW universe and avoid a "reboot". Strong physics engine, hopping from planet to planet, to take over different territories, etc. Maybe if Sony gets Shenmue, MS gets Panzer Dragoon Saga Sequel? I like the Crackdown 3 idea. 2 was terrible. Unrelated, but, fingers crossed for a new Skate game from EA.
I would love to see AoE make a return to PC's and the Xbox One (with keyboard support). Make them cross platform multiplayer if possible. Playing AoE brings back late graveyard shifts at a tech company I used to work at. That and StarCraft. Hopefully the Japanese game will be the new game from Platinum. those guys can do no wrong in my book.
