PS3,PSV,PS4,Morpheous and I don't know what else.

ZodTheRipper1237d ago

Sony: 8 booths
Microsoft: 2 booths
Nintendo: 3 booths

If that's indicative on what's to come Sony fans have very good reason to be excited :D

disKinected1237d ago (Edited 1237d ago )

Wow, amazing, sony must have prepared a great e3 showing. Can't wait for e3.

And lol at the people who thought Sony would be twiddling their thumbs..

Guess Sony is the one with the most content to show. This will be great e3 for Sony fans, for sure.

GarrusVakarian1237d ago (Edited 1237d ago )

Lmfao at mrpsychoticstalker trying to downplay Sony's E3 conference.

You gotta question what motivates these people to go into articles of consoles and companies that they don't like, purely to troll. Fear? Resentment? Jealousy? Probably all 3.

On topic: Can't wait to see what megatons Sony drop. I'd love to be there in person.

Moe-Gunz1237d ago

@mrpsychoticstalker

Same can be said for MS. However, Sony has a large 1st party and many are working on PS4 games so you may be very wrong.

Shane Kim1237d ago

mrpsychoticstalker

You just worry about those 2 booths.

ZodTheRipper1237d ago

Just don't feed that troll guys ;D
First they downplay this, next they downplay the actual conference. Is anyone with common sense really doubting that Sony is going to have a great E3, despite their silence in the last few weeks? First they rented cinemas and gave away free tickets, now they have the biggest showfloor and the most booths. And behind the curtains they still have the most unannounced projects within their first party lineup. It's actually sad that some are trying to downplay the excitement of others just to make them feel better.

Charybdis1237d ago (Edited 1237d ago )

Sony has 5 different meeting rooms, Microsoft doesn'have any meeting rooms (MR). Presence in the westhall looking at combined space sony seems to use a little bit more floor space,looks almost like same amount of total square feet as Microsoft in the Westhall.

Sony:
5 (different) permanent meeting rooms
3 booths in westhall floor
Microsoft:
0 permanent meeting rooms
2 booths in westhall floor

No_Limit1237d ago (Edited 1237d ago )

kind of misleading as 5 of the Sony booths are reserved for meetings...whatever that is.

On the breakdown of gaming booths, it make sense due to # of gaming platforms each company has.

Sony 3 gaming booths: PS4, PS3, Vita
Nintendo 3 gaming Booths: Wii U, Wii, DS
Microsoft 2 gaming booths: Xbox One, X360

sic_chops1237d ago

@psyco and you know this because? Oh yeah, a butthurt troll. Got it.

Why o why1237d ago (Edited 1237d ago )

Lol, nice try No Limit.

Lets see what sony will bring. They know the world is watching; some with trepidation, some with adulation and others straight fear and loathing. How will they fare.

yess1237d ago (Edited 1237d ago )

Are you guys ready for the power of the..Booths hehe ;)

MrSec841237d ago

Things are definitely pointing towards Sony's developers having a lot to show, particular to please gamers.

A huge 1st party network, with most studios being dead quiet since quite well before PS4 was officially announced.
Many of said studios having more than one team that haven't really been very vocal.

A pretty large number of trademarks for games being filed so close to E3.

Renting out dozens of Movie Theaters & giving away thousands of tickets for gamers to watch the event on the big screen.

3-4-51236d ago

Nintendo also has their Digital Directs too, so that kind of helps even though that isn't a booth.

Good for Sony though, should be the most exciting E3 in 2 years, for everyone, because it's finally all about games again.

AngelicIceDiamond1236d ago

If your attending E3 in LA you'll have loads to play at Sony's section.

Funantic11236d ago

Are we getting hype from the number of booths? I don't play booths, I play video games, preferably AAA. I pay attention to the man on the stage with the big screen behind him, not booths. Smh

BlackTar1871236d ago

@psycho

Hows the new Halo and Gears? Oh wait they haven't come out yet? What's that you say they don't have a 2014 release date? DATS WEIRD

headblackman1236d ago (Edited 1236d ago )

i hope 6 of those booths aren't indie game related.

miyamoto1236d ago (Edited 1236d ago )

PlayStation Nation Domination!

LOL!

@psycho
Okay booths does not mean games so what does M$ have in their 2 booths?

CryofSilence1236d ago (Edited 1236d ago )

Funantic, what do you think goes inside of those booths?

GiggMan1236d ago

Does more booths = more babes???? :-)

KinjoTakemura1236d ago

@mrpsychoticstalker

"All Sony games have been announced a year or two in advance. They are not bringing anything new to the booths. Aside from project morpheous."

Do you huff paint? Sniff glue? Chew on crayons? Sniff cinnamon? Sniff Bath Salts? I'm just wondering how anyone can conclude that Sony doesn't have anything new to announce at E3.
If you don't have brain damage then there's only one other explanation, you're slow.

Copen1236d ago

Lol @ all the SALTY xb0t$ worried and disagreeing. Keep fighting xbox warriors your fate is sealed and your demigod King Phil is a puppet for all the suits who ruined your console. Second place is the highest position any xbox console has ever achieved and right now ya'll need to worry about the Wii U or maybe just maybe 3rd place is where you'll be lol. Gimme them SaLTy TeArS.

Sheikh Yerbouti1236d ago

Excited about number of booths? Eh..? It all depends if those meeting rooms are all private showings of different games. God I hope so. It is E3 afterall. What else would they meet about?

AndrewLB1236d ago

I take it you've never been to E3 before, so i'll briefly explain a few things. First of all, the number of booths means absolutely nothing. A "booth" can be a small 10x10-ft square with a table and a couple chairs or it can take up 1/3 of an entire exhibition hall and be tens of thousands of square feet in size. And even then, having all that floor space doesn't mean it's packed with games. The larger booth sizes tend to have an exponentially large amount of open space with nothing going on. Or quite frequently they'll use a portion of it for some sort of entertainment that's just fun to watch... usually involving hot chicks wearing very little clothing or something that almost looks painted on. Ahh... E3. I'll be there again this year.

jnemesh1236d ago

Don't forget about Playstation Now! I am betting one booth is dedicated just to show that off...probably on multiple platforms including Sony Bravia TVs.

XiSasukeUchiha1236d ago

PS booths are everywhere at this E3, So Sony's popularity is going to skyrocket is over 9000!

AndrewLB1236d ago

I think you're missing the fact that E3 is a "closed to the public" convention for people who are involved in the gaming industry. These are Developers, producers, writers, and the gaming Media etc. This isn't some fanboy-fest where Sony and Microsoft give them all new knee-pads for the coming year. I guess there are some super-knee-pad-wearing-fanboys who actually spend the $800-$1,000 for a floor pass, and thankfully they tend to somewhat behave themselves. Especially since security has been known to clip people's credentials and show them the door for doing stupid crap.

BallsEye1236d ago

For Sony e3 I only care about ps4. Number of booths? I rather care about real gameplays of NEW games that would come out this year. No CGI crap, no upgraded cut-scenes, no tech talk. Just want pure, real gameplay! This goes to both ps4 and xbox one.

shadowsmoke361236d ago

What is the point in having E3 then if you must see gameplay of games probably not finished yet so you can complain about a unfinished game as most already do.You will not see full fledged gameplay but you will see some new games and hopefully games that was forgotten when the ps3 came out like LOD and dark cloud. Many gamers would prefer what's to come then gameplay of everything that may not be ready or polished. Many like myself are tired of people like you who rant over everything. You make your own game and show gameplay less then a year then you would see.

Magicite1236d ago

And Sony will dominate...AGAIN!

showtimefolks1236d ago

most booths
free theaters showing for fans

and some think sony won't be showing anything.

husomc1236d ago

some ppl think all those cinemas are just to broadcast Kaz Hirai's ugly mug

AndrewLB1236d ago

Fans? What are you talking about?

------------------

E3 is a professional trade event and is not open to the general public. Individuals who are not able to document their direct and current professional affiliation to the interactive entertainment industry are not qualified to attend.

http://www.e3expo.com/atten...

I doubt many "fans" will be dropping the $800-$1,000 for a floor pass because being a knee-pad-wearing-fanboy does not qualify someone as being part of the video game industry.

Yo Sony is just handling their business in complete silence. It's kinda exciting, 6 more days :D

ZodTheRipper1237d ago

Yep it's crazy, nothing substantial leaked yet but so many studios have yet to make ANY announcement. Just to name a few of the likely ones:
- Sony Santa Monica (GoW 4?)
- Sony London (Singstar / Wipeout?)
- Sony Japan (TLG / Gravity Rush 2?)
- Bend Studio new IP
- Media Molecule new IP
- Guerilla Games new IP
- Quantic Dream new IP
- Polyphony Digital (Gran Turismo 7?)
- Housemarque new project
- Project Beast?

And that's just the unannounced ones, I can't wait for their press conference.

AD7051237d ago (Edited 1237d ago )

Is there any evidence pointing to sony releasing any japanese themed games like Jrpgs and what have you? Other than project beast?

jnemesh1236d ago

I am looking forward to watching it stream live...they did it the last couple years, so I am assuming we will be able to watch the main presentation on our consoles...anyone know any details about this?

Revolver_X_1236d ago

@AD705

Its probably a safe bet to say any heavy JRPG games wont show up until TGS later this year.

Madderz1236d ago (Edited 1236d ago )

@Zod

Media Molecule have confirmed they have no announcements for E3

:(

EDIT: http://n4g.com/news/1521327...

Unfortunately media molecule won't be presenting anything as they announced on twitter. hopefully we will see what they cooking up at gamescom

hellzsupernova1236d ago

London better be working on The Getaway with Jason Statham as lead voice actor, i can dream can't i?

Wipeout is being outsourced according to rumours right?

showtimefolks1236d ago

ZodTheRipper

you also have to take into account some of these studios have grown and now support 2 plus teams. Sony Santa Monica has 3 or 4 teams(with stig leaving now 3)

than you have free lancers like david jaffe working with sony

sony japan is big, they have multiple teams also

Both have been quiet about e3. Ms has announced things that won't be at e3 or will have very small parts. Besides that the only so called hype is phil spencer answering twitter questions. People have somehow turned that into ms hyping their e3 like crazy

torchic1236d ago (Edited 1236d ago )

what are you serious??? Microsoft (especially The Second Coming himself Phil Spencer) have been very open and vocal about their E3 for two months now while Nintendo & Sony have just been cruising under the radar...

Microsoft really have been vocal about their E3 plans but tbf to Phil it doesn't help that the hardcore Xbox fanboys have been hyping the Microsft conference to unreachable levels.

hellzsupernova1236d ago

TO be honest all I have herd is how great Microsofts is going to be while everyone is like Sony better prepare themselves. Well how about you take a seat in one of Sony's movie theatres and watch the megaton bombs drop

HugoDrax1236d ago

I'll be attending E3, so I'll see if your statement is a fact. Although, your statement is false.

I'll also be at Century City, CA Microsoft store this weekend to play Sunset Overdrive. I'll record gameplay, and upload it to my onedrive if people care to see it.

NextGenHorny1236d ago

I bet Sony will be selling cookies there.

I love the hate your getting for stating the absolute 100% truth. Haha oh n4g. Maybe they do need all those booths for tons of games, but also, now read slowly, maybe not.

I and most of you aren't going going to E3 so I care more about the pressers then the Fing booths.

king_george1237d ago

Nah he's not getting hate. If anything people are just laughing at how retarded his comment is :p

More booths is never a bad thing. Lmao @ people who try to spin everything

ThePope1236d ago

@king Its not retarded, because more booths don't equal more games. that's all he said. Plain and simple. Anyone who thinks its retarded may in fact need to look in the mirror.

torchic1236d ago

@ThePope it's very much retarded bro. what is Sony going to do with all those booths sell newspapers? open up public toilets? open up a relationship counselling service for people at E3?

lol use your brain buddy

Dehnus1236d ago (Edited 1236d ago )

@ThePope
People forget it is a trade show. I also tried to explain that to MS fans when they whined why NIntendo did not have a presser during the E3 and choose for a direct. E3 is for the industry NOT YOU! that you and I enjoy it too is more an added bonus and thus it became a flagship.

So for Nintendo doing their "Treehouse" thing actually makes sense. It's cheaper and also will get to the same fans as a presser. Now for Microsoft having less "booths":

MS already had several industry trade shows, also talking with developers and one big one about Direct X12 for PC thus showing what the Direct 3D 12 api would bring. They do not need to redo that and thus need less booths to meet with the rest of the industry.

That is not a bad nor a good thing, that is just a fact. Same with Sony, do you really think they will be showing those booths constantly in those cinemas? NO they would be boring as fuck ;). Like "Hello, I am a manager of <big publisher> how much return of investment can I get from <x> on your Vita platform?". What you'll see is the Presser, not what happens in those booths.

But leave it to $on¥ Poni€s and M$ xBot$ to do another number comparison. THis time even sadder than pixel counting.... Sony has 150% more BOOT POWER! OMG that must mean they bought Birckenstock!:P

I kind of agreed with Dudebro90. I remember at last year's Gamescom and people made a big fuss over the more Floor space that MS has for that show and it turns out to be nothing in regard of showing more games. In actual Game booths, Sony has 3, Nintendo has 3, and MS has 2 , which matches the number of platform each company has. But I hope I am wrong though and those meetings room could be used by Sony to show off games closed-doors to the media or something.

Here is the link to the floorplan of last year's Gamescom and a thread about it on Neogaf...some of the reply were face palm worthy.

HeWhoWalks1236d ago (Edited 1236d ago )

Of course you'd agree with a Sony negative comment. Nothing new here. And your account of the "actual booths" is completely false.

OT: I'm expecting quite turn out, especially given how quiet Sony has been!

2v11236d ago

thas because all microsoft do is troll their fan base and you guys bend over happily.. But this is sony we talking about here NOT ms you can bet your ass they will have games.

Dehnus1236d ago

@Hewhowalks:
Fine Booths are magical places where nothing boring like talking about investments, business decisions, networking your contacts and closed door tech demos EVER HAPPEN!

It's all rainbows, My Little Ponies Directed by Michael Bay and everything you find awesome.

It has nothing to do with the Tradeshow, it is just that. Pleasing you... Screw that developer.

Charybdis1237d ago

One would assume they aren't showcasing the same thing in all 5 meeting rooms. However a new morpheus build showcasing would probably need more then 5 rooms in order if they want to prevent huge lines from being formed.

Rockefellow1237d ago (Edited 1237d ago )

I just don't understand it. I mean, their conference will probably be a smash hit, but even if they reveal 100 new games, that doesn't mean they'll be PLAYABLE on the show floor. The amount of booths any company has doesn't have any correlation to their conference. That's common sense.

People are just too excited to think logically, I suppose.

Revolver_X_1236d ago

Your comment makes 0 sense. Games or not, the amount of space reserved directly corelates to the amount of things ready to be tried, played, demoed. This just tells me Sony has more products for ppl to get hands on with then MS or Nintendo. Not necessarily games either.

n4rc1236d ago

No it doesn't... They could have 100 stations set up all for one demo

More booths does not equal more games.. Just more people

This isn't a knock against them.. But cmon people.. Stop grasping at straws for this petty (and boring) war you guys insist on waging..

Just enjoy the games that e3 brings! Loo

LackTrue4K1236d ago

You must be right (rolls eyes)
Mircosoft in all it's 2 booths are going to read/talk
Really really really slow show @ E3.

I'm sure Sony brought e3 to the movie theaters to show us a new phone... or TV, Sports!!! Just watch don't be jealous. ^~^

LogicStomper1236d ago

I find it odd that this article only mentions that Sony has more booth's, but doesn't show the layout or size of them.

Just for convinience, here's the size of the said booth's for this year's E3:

http://i1.wp.com/www.ninten...

Sure, Sony may have more booth's, but does this really entail that they have more to show?

kenshiro1001236d ago

Sony has tickets in theaters and about 8 booths. What makes you think it won't be anything substantial?
