Otaku Dome: With E3 making it’s way to gamers once more within the next 6 or so weeks we take a look at 20 possible predictions that may happen:
Dat HD Zelda. Can't wait to see it (it's been confirmed for E3 this year), I'd love the style shown here, but I'll be happy to see any art style they want to go with. As for other rumours, most seem possible, except the Wii U/3DS successors being shown as Nintendo has already said no new hardware. I doubt GTA V will come to all those platforms, and I don't think there'll be a Wii U version if it does come to all those others. Kinda don't expect Darksiders 3 will be announced this early, if it is then it'll be a while until it comes out. Also doubt Last of Us 2 will be announced because Last of Us 1 is only recently getting ported to the PS4
I have a feeling that both Sony and Microsoft are going to talk more about games we already know, than unannounced games! :(
DmC is not considered Devil May Cry 5.
I'd be very surprised if Sony announced release plans for morpheus
Some of these predictions are really out there lol. A sequel to DmC would be the worst thing ever.
Yes and Devil May Cry 5 would be very welcome especially if Platinum Games can get it since Bayonetta and Metal Gear Rising left DmC in the dust.
Yes god forbid a critically acclaimed game gets a sequel that would be absolutely unbearable /s
Well, when that game gives a giant middle finger to the fans of the past 4 games and insults them to the point where it'd only be worse if they said "fuck you" to the player. It would be unbearable.
Except it wasn't it was very much a devil may cry game and a great reboot. you want a giant middle finger to fans look no further than capcoms other franchises like mega man and resident evil. However dmc was great and yes it poked fun at the old games once. And yes ninja theory seriously needs better pr but seriously people hate that game for almost no reason. And the only valuable reason I've ever heard was it's not 60 fps but even then it was still extremely playable and extremely fun
I predict there will be lots of hype and release dates very far from now :D
I can see the KH Xbox 360 port if Square takes a bit of time to get the controller layout done well. Trying to build up the KH3 X1 market. I can see a Darksiders 3 announcement this year but Nordic isn't big enough to come to E3 with an announcement. FF15 hitting this years a bit of a reach. Last of Us sequel? Unless Sony twisted the game directors hands I doubt it. They are 50/50 on making a sequel and probably are making a new ip. (Pity) The Dying Light hype has died down. They'd have to do a phenomenal job fixing the bugs in the game to gain back that hype. They played the hype train terribly and don't deserve Dying Light to succeed with how they advertised the game. We all know this E3 will be all about X1 vs PS4 The competition, and it better just be about games. If Sony actually spends time on showing off indies and Project Morpheus then they've already lost. (Let the competition LIVE)
FFXV hitting this year is perfectly reasonable in my opinion. If they hadn't already rebranded it and announced consoles then yeah, but the game was looking in a decent state when they showed it off last year. The problem was really getting the hardware right for the game, and getting the right people to work on it consistently. At any rate, I think the latest we will see it arrive is early 2015. --- Don't know why a new IP for Naughty Dog is a bad idea. It will give them more time and a retrospective on TLOU and whether or not a sequel is truly a good idea, or build up more ideas in that time. They won't announce that at E3 though - we're only going to see TLOU Remastered footage and Uncharted 4 demo. --- Dying Light looks a LOT better than Dead Island, that's for sure. Not sure where you're getting the "how they advertised the game" part. What do you mean by that? --- You say it "better just be about games", then proceed to say that they've lost if they don't show games. Weird.. Really weird. Saying indies aren't games is like saying kids or women aren't humans. Them showing off a lovely looking first-party indie games like RIME or Everybody's Gone to the Rapture would cause them some kind of loss, right? And acting like Morpheus is not about games is just as ridiculous. You'd love to say they'd "lost" because of that though, wouldn't you?
FFXV hitting this year makes sense but they won't announce it at E3. Square Enix would've made some hyping teaser about it by now since FFXV is their big game. And after how they handled it's news in the last 2 years I seriously doubt we'll hear anything besides a trailer for the game and a BS "Coming Soon" release window. I expect it to hit Japan in 2015 and Europe/NA in 2016. Not saying a new IP is bad but The Last of Us could have plenty of new stories told, not just Joel/Ellie. I don't expect any news about a new IP or sequel for atleast 2-3 years. Dying Light may look better than Dead Island, but Dead Island looked a lot better when they were showing the game off. I'm sorry they released TWO teaser trailers for an average gameplay trailer. And word dropped things like "Trial" and "Release". Only to release a gameplay trailer that was lackluster and had no release date. GG Techland, and techland is making Hellraid which looks like a decent RPG with no variety in enemies. Indies are ALL available on your PC, we don't need them advertising indies when that's NOT what E3 is for. E3 is for showing off AAA games and unveiling new games, Pax is for indies. That's where the devs can talk to their fanbase and give demos. Don't try to twist my words because you don't know what E3 is for. RIME looks good, but it should've been shown at Pax East or Pax Prime in the future. NOT E3. Project Morpheus is a gimmick, if you're too daft to see that X1/PS4 can't run any AAA games in VR then I feel sorry for you. VR is viable for indies but even then it takes more out of the development and adds to the costs. I forgot a "me"....Then they've already lost me. I've got a PC for indies.... I've got the PC for VR. Oculus Rift > Project Morpheus PC > PS4 (For indies) Invest some decent cash because Indies are sold at reasonable prices and with sales on PC.
I still don't get your point about Dying Light. What do you mean about the way they advertised it? The game looks pretty damn good to me from what I've seen so far. ----- Indies are NOT all available on my PC. I won't be able to play Rime on my PC. I won't be able to play Everybody's Gone to the Rapture on my PC. I won't be able to play Velocity 2X on my PC. I won't be able to play PixelJunk Shooter Ultimate on my PC. I won't be able to play Shadow of the Beast on my PC. I won't be able to play Pavilion on my PC. I won't be able to play N++ on my PC. I won't be able to play Helldivers on my PC. I won't be able to play Chariot on my PC. I won't be able to play Kodoku on my PC. I won't be able to play Lily Bergamo on my PC. I won't be able to play Switch Galaxy Ultra on my PC. I know that E3 is for games. I'm not saying that Sony will have their conference chock full of indies, but acting like they will lose by having a game like RIME on their conference (a game that looks like it could be as large a game as ICO), is ridiculous. And yeah, I'm looking forward to about 3-4 times as many indies on PC than PS4/Vita. I've already kickstarted a few of them. But guess what? Where I can, I will get them for the consoles, because that is my preferred place to play them if I can, AND there's an opportunity for cross-buy, cross-save features which are indispensable as far as indie games are concerned. ----- You say Project Morpheus is a gimmick, yet it's already got as much praise from people who have tried it, as the Oculus has. You are basing this "power" theory on nothing. If indie devs truly had concerns about how VR development would affect their budgets and viability in making games, they would not already have shown much enthusiasm in getting concepts off the ground. I think you underestimate that these people have already dealt strongly with cost association of projects. Again your basing your doubts off nothing. Okay, they've lost "you". I've got a PC for indies too. I have a PC for VR too. I have a console for games. AAA games, MMO games, indie games, VR games. It doesn't matter to me. So now that you're done telling me PC > PS4, and now I've responded to you, I will ignore that and continue gaming on both.
No way Nintendo is announcing a new home console less than two years after Wii U released.
I agree, but I can definitely see them releasing a new SKU which is pretty typical after a year.
except they already confirmed they haave NO hardware announcements in store for e3.
@smashman98 Nowadays those kind of confirmations don't mean anything. It may be true or it's that Nintendo doesn't want the public to know just yet.
Confirmations do mean something it's a definite yes or no otherwise it's a straight up lie and that's rare. If they did have plans and didn't want to divulge them they could've said no comment or we'll see or whatever.
It could always be a matter of semantics. Instead of revealing NEW hardware, Nintendo could unveil a REVISION of existing platforms and it technically wouldn't be a lie.
i dont think nintendo is smart enough announce a new console or even a price cut for the wiiu. they will wait until they truly piss away their cash or until wiiu sales hit rock bottom.
If you cared so much about the price why not pick one up when stores were selling them for what you want them to sell for. Lets be honest here no one buys things because there cheaper if so then why buy a BMW over a Honda.
Hoping for Zelda WiiU. Sony's conference: - Sales, numbers - Indie games for the Vita - Morpheus - Assssins Creed, Destiny, Batman, maybe GTAV port - PS4 indies - Driveclub, The Order, Uncharted, TLOU port - ONE WWS AAA unannounced game. Probably Guerrilla's RPG. Repeat: ONE 1st party Sony's Word Wild Studios triple-A unannounced game
one wws AAA unannounced game? pfffffffffffft you are WRONG.
Hope you are right =) Last E3 we got only one (The Order 1886) Edit: lol, I wrote "world wild" above...
Sony Bend - I predict they will announce Kill Strain. https://twitter.com/Tidux/s... Media Molecule - I predict they will announce Entwined. http://www.gamespot.com/art... Guerrilla Games - I predict they will announce fantasy-RPG Bloodborne. https://twitter.com/Tidux/s... http://www.dualshockers.com... Japan Studio - I predict they will re-announce The Last Guardian for PS4, followed by many tears of joy and NeoGaf's servers going down. London Studio - I predict they will announce a new entry in The Getaway series. http://www.dualshockers.com... SCE & FromSoftware - I predict they will announce "Project Beast". http://www.neogaf.com/forum... And from Sega - Shenmue III... nah just kidding on that one.
Maybe Beyond Good & Evil 2 too? And i'm still waiting (dreaming), about the return of Crash Bandicoot for Sony and Shenmue 3, lol. And please, The Last Guardian!
I think Last Guardian will be a surprise PS4 2014 release announced at E3.
Fallout 4 Uncharted 4 And other things that will put a smile on the faces of ps4 owners.
I've read so many of these E3 prediction articles on n4g. But no one ever mentions Devil's Third, which I think will be shown at E3 this year. OT: Zelda U will own E3! And as others in the comments have said there will NOT be any new Nintendo hardware at E3, so people should stop speculating about it. I would love to see a Darksiders 3 as I enjoyed both of the other ones. I also believe that Nintendo will have some awesome unannounced games to show off, even some new IPs
"The 3DS/Wii U Successor Will Get Announced" Not happening. This was confirmed by Nintendo just a few days ago and there really is no reason to announce new hardware.
These are some outlandish predictions. Other than Zelda U most of those are wild assumptions.
I love these speculative articles; they're always fun to read. But some of your predictions are wayyy out there. #4 Nintendo has already stated they will not be showing off any new hardware at this years E3 #5 Sony's VR is still heavily in development. There is no way they will be announcing a price just months after first unveiling it to the world. #18 The Last of Us 2! Really? How many people do you think work at Naughty Dog? They cannot make games that fast. They haven't even shown gameplay for Uncharted 4 (which has probably been pushed back due to the recent departures of key people). Maybe they announce TLOU 2 at VGX 2015. Maybe. Cool stuff though. Fun to read.
Number 18 was more of a reference to the reports from earlier this year by that Spain news publication. It doesn't make much sense to announce the sequel right now with the port being on it's way.
All I wanna see is ZeldaU nothing else matter
TLOU 2? Don't think so, it just doesn't make sense that they'd announce that game with UC and TLOU port likely already showing up at E3. GoW4 also seems unlikely, we already know SSM's new ip was cancelled which likely would have ended up at E3, but considering it's canned now we should only be expecting games from Cory Barlog and possibly another team (the ascension team?). Cory already said on twitter that sadly his game won't show up at E3 and that it'll probably we a while before he reveals anything on it. So that leaves some other team within the studio to reveal there game, and like I said the only possible team would be the ones behind ascension which just came out in early 2013. I doubt there'd be much to show on a new title, besides SSM lost 50 employees, who know's if that means Cory's team is the only team left making a game from SSM. My predictions from Sony are... 1. ND officially reveals UC4, no real gameplay shown but a 2-3 minute trailer with cutscenes will be shown, similar to what we saw with the CoD: AW trailer. 2. We'll see RAD go in depth about The Order with at least a 7 minute gameplay reveal, same goes for Evolution Studios with Driveclub. 3. GG will announce their new ip, of course I have nothing to support this claim other than a recent rumor from an insider :p. 4. Project Beast will be announced and the actual name of the game will be revealed. 5. I think either Sony Bend, MM, or Team Ico will announce a game, possibly The Last Guardian, but i'm hoping for either Bend's or MM IP. MS is clearly focused on showing off games at E3, they know this years E3 is where they can attract gamers, losing the sales battle to Sony isn't doing them any good and all they can do at this point is talk games. I expect a very good showing at E3 from MS, so if Sony wants to avoid people saying the PS4 has nothing exciting coming out, they need to empty out the clip. Showing off UC4 will not be enough IMO, especially if Halo 5, Gears, and QB show up at E3. Give me UC4, Syphon Filter Reboot, The Order 1886, MM New IP, The Last Guardian, GG New IP, and The Getaway. Now i'd call that a successful E3 from Sony.
