I would say don’t expect to many big new surprises. Sony will most likely focus on a lot of the upcoming titles That have already been announced.

I’m predicting one or two new game announcements that are AAA otherwise expect there to be a kind of gameplay footage for games like the last of us, Spider-Man, ect.

I also have a feeling we’re going to see a lot of firmware software related announcements for the PlayStation four, Biggest one being name changing finally becoming available.

That's what ms did with 360 slim I believe.

haha that would be a suprise. How about doing closer to the PS2 in cost? Eventually the PS2 reached as low as 100$ If it drops $100 and then even more this Christmas then it will have the boost that PS2 got at the end of it's life to break sales records!

Well it would be a surprise, that's for sure.

indysurfn115d ago (Edited 115d ago )

I would not get mad as long as the date is not this year.

I actually think Sony's show will be somewhat tame with announcements and will focus mostly in the loaded kick ass library to finish off the rest of this year and early next. They will save the suprises for a show late 2018/ early 2019 announcing the ps5 and will dedicate the majority of next years E3 to the new console

Well that's wishful thinking. I wouldn't mind a 2019 launch as long as a year or 2 years wouldn't have done much for the power(ticks and tocks).

I want it to hit the 10TFlop mark, at least and room to utilize it all.

indysurfn115d ago (Edited 115d ago )

It initially sounds like wishful thinking. Until you think about Sony could use the Xbox one X launch timing against Microsoft.

Sony could take advantage of the fact that Microsoft will piss off fans if they come out in 2019 with another console so soon after X1X! And on the other hand Sony will have a 1 year head start if Microsoft DONT piss fans off by coming out along side Sony in 2019!

I think that THIS is the long term end game that Sony was setting up when they came out with PRO over a year before Xbox one X! I tried defending them with this logic back then. Hopefully now it is easier for people to understand it.

It was thought we might get a ps5 reveal and date due to rumblings of sony showing hardware but now it looks like we should expect a sony portable at e3.

I don't know if it will be at E3 but Sony has shown new games every year since launch seeing as they are increasing games production I am sure there will be new games this year at one or more conventions this year or PSX.

I personally think the majority of new ps4 games are known. Not that this is a bad thing as they have some amazing upcoming games. Having said that i wouldn't be surprised if they announced a future racing title and something like little big planet 4 at some point this year. Or even a new playstation all stars game.

gamerzero115d ago (Edited 115d ago )

Sony has said they are not only investing heavily in first party games but even increasing production. On top of that they have said they plan to support PS4 for at least 3 more years. It's safe to assume that all the games they have announced except Ghosts of Tsushima will release by the end of next year, that leaves plenty of openings for new games.

This is Sony were talking about, they aren't going to stop putting out games before the PS5 releases. They know that having a strong end to the PS4 is the absolute best way to push into the PS5.

Unless PS5 is launching next year I think it's safe to assume there will be big new game(s) announced this year and probably next year too.

conanlifts115d ago

I didnt say they would stop supporting the ps4, i said i think we know the majority of games announced. In addition i listed 3 possible games not yet announced. So as you say if they release the games we already know about this year and next that would leave a few more for 2020 like the 3 i mentioned. Also i would be amazed if death stranding were released by next year. Most likely 2020 onwards.

Hardiman115d ago

If the only thing they were to show was gameplay for TLOU2, Ghosts of Tsushima and Death Stranding I'd be more than happy! But there will also be Spider-Man, Days Gone and anything else they have planned so an exciting show through and through!

nucky64115d ago

agreed. i'm so excited to see gameplay for both GoT and death stranding.

DialgaMarine115d ago

That list that was supposedly accidentally posted on their Twitter shows 2 slots for unannounced titles by unknown devs, as well as 2 unannounced PSVR titles. If that list remains true, there will definitely be some surprises.

Roronoa0411115d ago

Most people on resetera are sayin it’s fake... and I have to agree because how can you accidentally post something to social media... other reason is Sony Microsoft and Nintendo wouldn’t make a list like that in the first place... and why would Devil May Cry 5 be named and not the other unannounced titles... I want to believe it but I just can’t. I still think Sony will announce something new though!

One thing confirmed is RAD will be at E3 to show heir new game. No idea what it is or even if it's multiplat though Hoping for The order sequel.
