With E3 just around the corner, everyone is wondering what Sony, Microsoft and Nintendo have in store for gamers. Which company has the edge?
Probably Sony, but I wouldn't count Nintendo out as they might have new hardware announcements that could blow everyone away.
No. No NX
Microsoft will have it in the bag if a gears trailer is Shown. Even if it's just a remaster gears will own e3 EASILY
I was excited for the Gears remaster until it was only the first one.
i have not played gears yet, so to be able to play it, even if it's just the first one, on xbone will be welcomed from my perspective.
not if sony shows the last guardian...
Cmon..really? If it is shown that is awesome that its FINALLY finished and coming but that game is far from mainstream. That game is far from a console seller. Well this is if ICO and Shadow of Colossus are any indication but hey anything is possible. I guess we will see. I can't help but think Sony has something with more mainstream potential up their sleeves.
If the last guardian is shown then gg ms and Nintendo especially if it releases this year.
Yeah because that dudebro crap is SOOOOO relevant today. Grasping at straws much?
Remasters will not win an E3 ever. If Gears 4 multiplayer gameplay is shown with attachment of beta to remastered and Remastered launches on Monday then it will be interesting.
So what you are saying is that if Sony show Uncharted HD as their main exclusive in the Fall, Sony will lose. And I totally agreed. GEARS HD is only a small portion of the MS exclusive lineup in the Fall.
@Rookie So now announcing games for 2016 doesn't matter? :I I really dont believe you know what the objective is at these conferences. A part of it is to hype the launch of games during the holidays but its also about announcing new games that will release in the following year. Unlike most people I judge a conference by its whole. I don't just focus on what's coming out at the end of this year and grade it based on that.
@Rookie_Monster I just got a PS4,but want a Xbox One for Gears, Cuphead,Superhot and many other games. The only one winning E3 is gamers. Sony spreads their games throughout the year where as Microsoft generally focuses on early year and holiday. Both work out well with exclusives. I have been to the Game Developers Conference. Met Phil Spencer. You guys are more obessed with who wins or loses then they are.
Brother, I fear the gaming community have moved on since 2007, but nevertheless, Gears is dope.
Gears is dope,but more hyped for Gears 4 than outsourced remaster. Remaster could come anytime between E3 and holiday. May consider Xbox One for it,but Killer App will be Gears 4 launch
Even if they only show a remaster? Um no. I find it shameful that you believe that revealing a remaster is going to have a bigger impact than revealing Scalebound. Scalebound is going to be much bigger than a simple Gears remaster. You really have no respect for Platinum games.
Haha, u wanna say that old remastered game will own E3 and new and original IPs will be left in shadows? Talk about being delusional. OT: Sony always wins E3 for me, because only they have necessary variety of games and genres.
If Sony shows The Last Guardian with a 2015 release date...... I'm sure if my body will be ready for it.
Don't get me wrong I like watching e3, however more than half the stuff they show looks absolutely nothing like the game I put in my console a year or so up the road. They should all be made to show actual footage from the actual console they are releasing the game on, either that or explain its running on a Titan x triple sli set up..
the bigger problem is finding a stream that streams e3 conferences in high quality and without lag.
I go with Sony but... Also interested in the amount of noise Msoft is making regarding first part games and exclusive titles coming on xbone. If they have some enticing titles, might just buy an xbone.
They also made a ton of noise before the X1 and Kinect reveal and look what happened. Just because you brag about something doesn't mean that it will be the best.
@MasterCornholio Showing what you got is not bragging. And comparing a big hardware risk like kinect and the initial X1 reveal, to MS games lineup is more than a bit silly.We all seen those halo 5 scans from game informer. Those of us that have played the beta know just how good halo 5's MP is going to be. Forza 6 is a big step up from FM5. Gears is...gears! nuff said. scalebound, crackdown, phantom dust, QB, below, inside, cuphead, Joe montana (with possibly an NFL announcement being made at E3) and a bunch of others show that MS is bringing games, not talk. So for them its a matter of stating the obvious. Yes, it will be their most first party centric lineup ever. Yes their games for 2015 and 2016 show promise. And yes they will have much more to show us than they have let on so far. We dont know what rare, twisted pixel or any of their other studio are showing. And the fact they have to move things over to gamescon, an event they have never shown much at before, says a lot about just how much firepower MS is packing for the next two years, alone. My money is on MS. Im sure sony and nintendo will have good showings too, but I get the distinct feeling, MS will show more first party AAA megatons than the other two. You guys mentioned the possibility of last guardian showing up but if it did, i doubt it would be any solid gameplay. Its been in development hell for years....Thats not something you turn into a playable E3 demo without a lot of duct tape and scripting in place, which in itself would suggest the game is still far off from completion. No mans sky will be the biggest game at sonys presentation again. Its still arguably the most talked about game on PS4, even more so than UC4. I know I am more interested in NMS,personally too. Along with GG's new game. Nintendo will show off their usual suspects. And thats fine. I want a new zelda, starfox, f-zero and metroid. A new super mario game would be cool too. Sony will show GGs dino mech game (hard to say whether it will be trailer or gameplay. We will see more gameplay footage of UC4. they will show UC HD trilogy. God of war 3 HD. shadow of the beast. GT7 may get a trailer, but I dont expect any gameplay, or even a 2016 release. this years MLB game too perhaps? and they will show the vita some love. They only have so much time on stage, notably sony have quite a few marketing deals..so expect to see starwars:BF, destiny's new DLC and possibly that rumoured COD marketing deal announcement. Those three alone will take up a good portion of sonys E3.So they have to squeeze vita, 3rd party, probably some PSNow talk..probably a couple minutes celebrating their sales. And first party announcements for next year and beyond. MS will show 1st party games pretty much entirely. And those games are loooking very promising...from halo 5 right down to cuphead.And they deffo have LOTS more to share. That much is obvious. Even with everything they have shown and said so far, there is clearly more, that they are holding off on till E3. They dont really have many ,marketing deals this year. Which is different for MS, in itself. We will hear more about W10 on Xbox. We will hear more about DX12 and how it works on Xbox. If crackdown shows up at E3 instead of gamescon, they will demonstrate their cloud tech, and much crow will be eaten. Joe montana getting an NFL licence will be a thing, making the game Joe montana's NFL 2K15. I dont expect to see hololens. So on paper, MS look the strongest going into E3, based on what we know.
"Predictions: Which Of The Big 3 Will Own The E3 Stage?" Microsoft will be the winner this time around. They need to make an impact at this point in the console cycle. - Halo 5 - Forza 6 - Tomb Raider: Rise of the Tomb Raider - Possible Gears of War 4 reveal - Possible Gears of War Remaster reveal - Windows 10 and Xbox One cross-platform play announcements - DirectX 12 news - Rare game announcement - Crackdown 3 - Scalebound - Quantum Break ....and probably a few surprises in addition to some of the above listed items that we already know. This is a pretty tough line-up to beat.
Quantum Break just skip on E3 to Gamecom.
Microsoft will likely come out guns blazing and they need it. Sony is probably still sleeping as they rake in the easy money, since there's no need for that to put much effort in. Nintendo needs a whole new system that has third party support and a whole amazing launch lineup, none of that is happening.
If I had read your last sentence first I would have disagreed with you rather than to agree.
Only watch Box action so nothing to compare it too.
I'm a Playstation owner, so I want Sony to give me even more value for my hard earned cash, but you never know these days as all of these companies have learned the hard way on what not to do. So it'll likely be two killer shows, one medicore one, who knows.
MS was awesome last year, it was games,games and more games. Can't wait to se updated info on their incredible lineup plus the ever present surprise or two... Come on Monday, get here!!
Sony for me excited for all the JRPGs
HALO GEARS UNCHARTED MARIO....YEAH NICE i want new franchises ffsake although i played both gears and uncharted i dont get excited by remastered games should at least get remastered after a 2 console cycles 4 me a resolution bump and an extra light and texture here and there not my cup of tea but...new games and innovation thats what e3 was all about....as for my fanboy side of view sony 4 the win !!!
I dont know. But i do know that my d*** will explode from all the awesome reveals. Cant wait for this years e3!!!
Sony is a big big question mark. Will they have enough to announce to steal MS E3 thunder? Right now it is pretty obvious that MS has more big hitters coming out During the holidays (sadly none that appeal to me enough to buy a console for). But Sony has been largely silent on many of their studios projects. I think at this point The Last guardian is a sure thing for this year. They need at least 1 third party exclusive to put the dagger in farther though. Sony is the underdog at this E3 as far as what we know so far in 2015. (and yet I still find myself more attracted to GOW3 remaster+ Uncharted remaster).
halo 5, forza 6, rise of tomb raider, quantum break, scalebound, crackdown, gears, fable. enough said and that's just they games we already know about.
if nintendo shows zelda and star fox..and probably a new metroid... its over no matter what.. just zelda only is enough for most but with the other 2..oh boy
Xbox fan boys are gonna say Microsoft and sony fan boys gonna say Sony then u have Nintendo fans with Nintendo and tbh I love my ps4 and to me it's not all about winning it's about the games and games alone is what sells the console
Who willing own the E3 stage? The answer is simple For PlayStation fans, it will be Sony. For xbox fans it will be MS. For Nintendo fans, it will be nintendo. You will never see an xbox fan saying Sony won or playstation fan saying MS won. So debating this is useless and these articles with the same question are only doing it to bring people to fight.
NOT A BIASED OPINION.... I would be surprised if MS doesn't come out swinging they don't OWN E3 this year. Last year was a DISASTER!!! If they don't win this yeah.. MS doesn't own they will lose the small momentum that they've been gaining. Nintendo may sneak in and create get a great buzz but Nintendo ALWAYS goes hard during E3.. Sony.. IDK, we will def some good things but I dont BC they have such a lead, I dont see them putting the nail in coffin... IDK..
Sony has been fairly quiet lately, so I'm thinking they have something big, under the wraps, to show. M$ sounds like they've got a lot, but they've been beating their chest way too much to point where it sounds like they're just super desperate still, and want people to run out and buy an XBone now before they experience genuine disappointment. The only game I really care to see from them is Gears 4, with some legitimate gameplay. I'm thinking Sony will show the next GT off, The Last Guardian (because if there was ever a time to do it, it's now), hopefully they show Guerrilla and Sucker Punch's new games, show some more UC4 gameplay (hopefully both single and multiplayer), and then give a slew of info on Project Morpheus. Combine all that with some strong third party deals like CoD and Battlefront (we already know they have that one), and Sony is set to steal the show, easily. They just have to make sure they prove all the naysaying hipsters wrong, and put the biggest emphasis on exclusive games, while still showing a good amount of third party and indie. I'd say 70% exclusive, 30% third party and indie, would be perfect.
