GearNuke: "Industry Insider Shinobi602 has been quite reliable with his leaks recently and he had something interesting to share on Twitter regarding Sony's upcoming E3."
This could either make the show better or worse.
Nothing worse. I jokingly asked him if it was "bad or worse" and he replied "Neither I'd say, just a little different."
@Foxtrot This could either make the show better or worse. I find your comment intriguing.
I've always enjoyed Sony conferences and they've all been relatively the same with the exception of Kevin Butler on stage (which was a glorious moment). I'm looking forward to a change, I believe that the only thing that could make this a bad presentation is bad games or a lack of them.
Inb4 Mr. Caffeine
I'm gonna miss you Jack Tretton.
A new format??? Please no!! Sony and formats don't go well together. I mean... remember the PS3 and Blu Ray? They barley survived that apocalypse, they don't need to go there.
I welcome a format change tbh. Ive found Sony E3 conferences rather boring in the past with the exception of a few. Last year's one was a snooze fast minus the little fun at the end. They should make it like their console reveal in Feb. Games on games on games. That was epic
I hope it's not going to be 'last VGAs' different.
If anyone claims they didn't clench their buttocks at least once when reading the headline, I'm calling you a liar. Don't mess this up Sony ... I'm eating sofa here.
I just want them to go on stage, cut back their speeches on stuff gamers don't care about...you know the stuff which you know they have to talk about but makes you roll your eyes http://tinyurl.com/ksdkmn4 Then shows the trailers while leaving the talking to the developers. Anything like what they are going to do next year in terms of service or anything non relevant to games I hope they've thought of the quickest way possible to get that point across. I know it's important aswell to talk about Destiny, DriveClub and The Order but I don't want most of the conference wasted on those games, games already announced last year. Even something like inFAMOUS Second Son DLC can wait as DLC can be announced any time they like. No point in showing it off when DLC will be buried under all the games coming from E3. We don't need another Wonder Book showing.
@Foxtrot... Exactly... Open the show with The Order Stage demo, when it closes reveal the release date, jump right into Shu announcing 5 Big PS4 exclusives with Trailers... Next Show Case Uncharted 4, then talk about the launch availablity of PS Now, Announce some killer Partnerships with 3rd party, Announce new Vita Hardcore software, a sprinkling of PS4 indie game, then Show off Destiny's Multiplayer and AC:Unity's stage demo, then announce a Price cut (⬅unlikely) and boom end the show.
@Sevir Pretty much what I would like to see happen Open Show with The Order 1886 Talk about story, unannounced features, release date Shu introduction, talks about a few changes coming to the PS4 in a future update like MP3 and video playback etc and maybe sharing will finally go through Youtube. After that he shows off some new games. (Possible Titles) Sony Bend, Sony London, Last Guardian (End trailers) Sony Santa Monica comes on stage to show their new game GG could do the same Uncharted 4 gets a reveal trailer and ND show us gameplay. Project Beast is talked about, name revealed then trailer. Media Molecule comes on stage Quantic Dream comes on stage. David Cage talks about PS4 for a bit before finally showing us the title to his new game. Talk about PS Now and PS Plus Quickly talk about new partners Talk about third party devs and show off any unannounced games. Maybe one exclusive Blah Blah Blah...wrapping up show End Show - Hopefully with a hint or full on trailer to show that Sony has Crash Bandicoot. This is why I wouldn't want to see Destiny or inFAMOUS SS DLC or even Deep Down. Not because I don't care for them (I bloody do) but Sony has enough to show off. Hell we still need to think about Kingdom Hearts 3 and Final Fantasy XV. So many games...
for the love of gawd I hope they put out an offical E3 app to watch the conference on PS4. No more UStream ffs!
their is a app for live viewing on PS3 don't know if it will come to PS4 in Time for E3.
I agree, almost had a heart attack when watching the unveil of the PS4 and Ustream kept lagging.
Let's not forget about the third possibility: t could make the show about the same. So, yeah. Better, worse, or the same. I bet it will be one of these three scenarios. #pachterftw
What about Brannigan's Law?
What about Sharia Law? Oops, that is for the XB1 conference, my bad.
@foxtrot It could definitely result in more or less people watching the show. People might or might not like the change. It could sell fewer or more games, and could result in Sony winning the console war, or not. You may or may not even notice the change.
I think its going to be worse because Jack Tretton was an awsome guy
He was a fantastic talker. Best one in my opinion at E3. Not sure about Shawn Layden, but we'll see how he does. Andrew House is alright...he kind of reminds me of Petyr Baelish.
I'll miss Jack being on stage and doing interviews after the show. He has a personality/charisma that is different then other executives. Edit: @Foxtrot: IMO, Andrew House is a terrfic speaker. Always amazes me how he can also speak fluent Japanese.
E3 2014 Sony Vs Microsoft all i have to say is http://i3.kym-cdn.com/photo...
* When you build something up and present it as if it's great and talk all excited about it and then reveal it and nobody cheers or claps. ^ Those moments are sooooooo cringeworthy, I feel bad and embarrassed FOR the people on stage. Less of those would be awesome, and more ACTUAL surprises that are awesome. * Corporate " AWESOME", is just normal ok.
Can anything be worse than that storybook presentation?
That was at least 15minutes longer than it needed to be! <shudder>
I will never forget sony at 2013 E3. They blew it out of the water an I remember cheering along with the crowd at the 399$ and no used games. Absolutely electrifying
I disagree, it didn't interest me at all. No blocking used games, No connection 24/7 etc. That has been in every console known to man so those announcements weren't anything new, so I didn't even care.The $399 price wasn't a shocker either, and the launch lineup was mediocre as well. So for me their E3 2013 press conference was OK at best.
Time splitters I thought u were being sarcastic cause obviously no one wants those things, hence MS changing their policies 399 price wasn't a shock? Yea right the PS3 was 600$
Except for the price announcement and the playful jabs at MS - the last E3 for Sony was pretty boring. They need to massively step up the games this year.
At least they didn't say "we are going to do something amazing and different at E3 this year. And it will be great and you will love it! BUT... we can't tell you about it" like a certain other current gen console maker said recently. I think they continued on by saying "Oh yes. They are coming. And it's going to be great! There is going to be 1... no... 3 dragons! And they are going to be awesome!"
That South Park episode is classic
Kind of appropriate given the topic hahaha. What a beat down! The tats on Gates making him all gangsta. Still think Sony should have won that battle.
since a new CEO with jack stepping down, we will have a new voice and if this rumor is right than new format can't wait, i just want it to be about games
I'm sure Sony and Ms will all show off great games but Sony wants to really stand out, to give people a reason to not even consider buying an X1. Sony will show the big games that everyone wants then when people think it can't get any better, Yoshida and other popular folks (to show it can be social etc) will be sitting there with the Morpheus VR headsets on playing amazing unannounced games, doing unforgettable things that are only possible on PS4. They'll probably even announce future support for great games that you already knew were coming but ones you'd love to be able to swing a sword or light saber in, hold a gun in your hand in, look up at gigantic creatures and see them how they're meant to be seen, etc. I hope greatness doesn't have to wait too much longer, I want VR in early 2015 at the latest.
My interest has been peaked
*Insert sexual joke about 'peaking' here*
Is it over 9000 yet?
Its over 8000
What a tease, though. It's like back in elementary when someone would walk up to you and say, " I know someone who likes you." And then walks away. You'd be stuck there like, "Who? Who?! WHO?!?"
Not that anybody gives a sh*t, but in the actual japanese dub Vegeta actually says 8000 not 9000:P ON TOPIC: Its nice to see Sony trying something different, I cant wait for E3..............dam it I wish Jack Tretton was still there:(
You've just spoiled all the over 9000 jokes i've seen on here! lol
Good luck to Sony at E3 it's going to be a war and MS isn't going to wave any white flags This will probably be the best E3 in years
Agreed. There is to be no surrender, no giving up. I just want everyone to give it their best.
Sony too huh? this E3 is going to special for the big three, this E3 will be the most respected one yet. Sony! :) Good job, and too other companies good job as well OT: We don't what Sony has in store!?
We don't know what they have in store but thats part of the excitement.
Hmm. So now both Sony and Nintendo are trying new formats. Interesting.
Sony is still showing up at E3 Nintendo isn't ;)
Really Troop? I would say they have the largest presence. I wish I could join the fun at the Nokia Theater..
Um, yes they are. They are on the show floor and they have a Smash Bros. tournament event. Nintendo is at E3. Stop spreading misinformation.
uh no Nintendo is going. No E3 Press Conference =/= Not going to E3
So if Nintendo does something different, they're afraid, but if Sony does it, they're innovating?
If sony did the same thing as always, they're stagnant and falling behind the times.If they do something different, they're just copying others? Either way, guys like you will always find a way to cry about it.
@dvs the fanboys are crazy with every console lol
Maybe they should try to INNOVATE a different way so no one will say anything like that. But Sony and Innovation, that pair just doesn't work.
Why is everyone getting defensive about saying Sony and Nintendo are doing different things? That's an objective truth. I got a bunch of disagrees on my earlier comment because people seem to think I was attacking Sony by comparing them to Nintendo.
Way to flip his point lol "Either way, guys like you will always find a way to cry about it." Wasn't it the sony fanboys who were crying about Nintendo doing a Direct last year instead of a conference?
Sony are still doing a conference though on stage.
Same old story..same old song and dance my friend.
The point is they are approaching E3 as a whole differently. Why is it such a bad thing to point that out? I like that they are trying new things in addition to the usual E3 conference. Apparently everyone else doesn't like that being pointed out.
@randomass171 It's not the point, E3 gets you more exposure then a direct video which main audience is most likely die hard Nintendo fans. E3 has become a little mainstream and is easy to watch then just a direct. If your console is struggling and you wanted to make an impact you would go to E3 and get the word out about your console. The fact they aren't doing one is silly in their situation and shows me they don't seem to give a crap.
You do realise the Nintendo event will be in front of a live audience? Nintendo personally inviting Nintendo fans to be in the audience for their Digital Event.
Sony still has a press conference. :)
yeah for the media, investors and attendee. Nothing for you Sony fans to experience. For us Nintendo fans we get everything directly from Nintendo, can play E3 demos and if near E3 we can go to the Smash Tournament at Nokia Theater. Also Nintendo Treehouse Live Demo with is about one hour each. Have fun sitting in your seat at home waiting hours and hours for footage from IGN or whoever.
Yeah... please remind me why having a press conferences are better? You do realise the Nintendo's Digital event will be in front of a live audience? They will be personally inviting Nintendo fans to be in the audience for their Digital Event.
I agree that on N4G anything not Sony tends to get bashed, while Sony gets a free pass. However, I kinda like these new ideas. They're not earth shattering, but still pretty cool.
So your comment describes the situation in reverse from last gen. Anything xbox did was great. Any move sony made was a mistake and got bashed. So I dont get what your trying to point out. Time sony got some free passes. At least they are doing it for the gamer while lining there own pockets.
this is what i knew about what nintendo was doing in the months following E3 last year because they didn't hold a conference on stage: nothing. this is probably what i'll know about what nintendo is going to be doing in the months following E3 this year because they're not holding a stage conference for the second year in a row: nothing. everyone knew what MS and sony had planned in the months following both of their E3 conferences because they actually held stage conferences. and everyone will know what MS and sony are going to be doing in the months following E3 this year because they're both holding stage conferences. i don't think nintendo is doing what they're doing out of fear. it seems like they're doing it in an attempt to pinch pennies, which is probably not the best idea to do for (arguably) the largest video gaming event of the year.
Nintendo is not pinching pennies. Instead of using the stage to announce games their holding a first ever Nintendo Smash Tournament. So they paid for the stage.
