VG247: Here we go. Sony's finally confirmed the timing for its E3 press conference.
It appears that Microsoft always goes first followed by Nintendo and then Sony. I wonder if this is a strategic thing... I mean, Sony can see what the other 2 announce and then tailor their announcements in a way. Either way E3 cant come quick enough!!!
I imagine their presentations/keynotes will all be decided upon and set in stone well before the show. I dont think any of them would be able to adjust what they have planned to rival anothers offerings.
Remember Microsoft dropped Halo: ODST at the last minute last year from their presentation? Changes can happen. That said, Sony have some very interesting things to announce, so I don't forsee them changing their plans depending on the other keynotes. Anyone who is a part of focus groups, seen internal presentations or has heard some rumblings (who shouldn't have), probably knows this. Look at the games to be released this year. . .Sony always have several large games in development internally, staggered to have many released every year. I think PSN will have some very large announcements of its own, personally.
Don't be silly, being firsts has its major advantages. Last year MS took alot of the wind out of Sony with the FFXIII announcement. Even though MS only had 1 major blockbuster title to show (Geow2), the news was enough. If I were Sony, I would want to be first this year, and just crush the competition with available upcoming titles and titles planned. Sony must be really confident though this year if they still want to go last. MS wouldn't have the breadth of titles this year to respond to everyone of Sony's announcements.
you know you save the best for last
maybe there doing it in terms of quality hardware, least to best....I KID I KID!!!!
Hopefully they'll stream it through Home like they have previously.
yeah!!!! that's my most wanted thing out of Home hopefully they stream their conference AND allow you to download demo's and trailers straight from Home
That would be cool, even though if it is anything like TGS was, it was a yawn fest. No big deal to me, as I will be attending in person.
SOny brings their full line up since 2006 in the first two months in every year, lol.. and then, they deal the half to the next year. MS waits.. till the right time and blow sonys line sh!t away
. . . what big AAA games did Microsoft ANNOUNCE at E3 last year that Sony did't already have?
Fable 2? snort. Banjo Kazooie? Oh Gears of War2. Is that THE AAA you were talking about? What else did MS show? Lips? one vs. 100? Where's this brilliant strategem you're talking about free3sixty? Unlike the rest of us, your fanboy spinning only works on you.
Yeah, Gears of war 2, you know, the game that scored higher in meta-critic and sold much more then Killzone 2. Remember that game? I am sure Gears 2 wasn't on the PS3, so you didn't have that. Think before you type.
Gears 2 was announced at GDC though.
Indeed it was, thus, proving me right. Thanks for the sound knowledge. Its a shame more people don't know these things. The world would be a better place. :)
Because gears of war 2 was released at the same day and time of killzone 2 at the last 2 days of February and this months sales have been released. Wow what a fanboy you are.
glitches of war 2, nuff said.
what a fail, thats a failure of a first impression i must say. hows ur gears2 matchmaking going btw?? that is something metacritic cant help now is it ¬_¬ The really really sad thing is that you point to opinions, sales and scores above your own actual hands on experience like sales and scores are more important than the game itself. *sigh*
2 players got PWNED!
I remember Sony using LBP to show their profits, earnings etc that was awesome.
That was an excellent touch lets hope something like that will happen again. The most boring part became one of the best parts.
that graph was epic. hehe, maybe LBP will help demonstrate the specs on Sony's next console. you never know ^_^
June 2 the day sony announces more exclusives.
yep.. for sure it will be GT6 and uncharted 3 + Killzone 3 LOL
why lol? those would be incredible announcements
Don't get too carried away lol, Let see some of GT5 first
he's not getting carried away... he's a stupid 360 troll who thinks he's dissing the PS3 by saying that Sony are going to prolong their stalwart franchises.. that's how retarded these 360 trolls get
new games please...
@VMAN_01 yeah I remember that and they have sackboy laugh when sony sales went up I laugh to good stuff.
So that would be 7pm GMT I think. Hard to know especially with the time change at the weekend. I will try to book that afternoon off.
Sony would leave a lasting impression
That didn't happen last year. MS announcing FF XIII shocker overshadowed Sonys conference.
save the best till last indeed :)
It is funny to see MS fans clinging to the fact the MS stole a PS3 exclusive game. Especially, when Sony is taking so many exclusives from Microsoft.
MS announced a PS3 game that's still EXCLUSIVE in Japan. Fail. :)
Is E3 happening a month early this year? Isn't it usually in July? Doesn't matter should be great.
yes, it will occur in early June http://www.e3expo.com/
Sony is so loaded with games for E3...if they dont take the show easily, I will be amazed. MS real only hope to make a splash is RaRe and maybe showing off a brief glimpse at the next Xbox. Big N has potential also
Littlebigplanet has a 95 on metacritic, gears of war 2 has a 93, so is LBP a better game? Using your logic, definetly.
his fanboy mentality just broke.
Imagine if Sony announced the following at this years E3: 1) Firmware update giving voice chat/game invites/ingame webbrowsing and backwards compatibility. 2) HOME receiving tv's, stereos, picture frames for download/stream from HDD, new game spaces. 3) $100 PS3/$50 PSP price cut IN ALL TERRITORIES. 4) New colors for the PS3. 5) All the secret games that have been speculated and hinted at. (eg. Ico's games, Twisted Metal PS3, Tears For Blood, etc.) Items 1-4 being effective immediately upon announcement. Can you say, "Worldwide console shortage?" -Rip-Ridah
Lets not forget so many other things they could announce like 1. Netflix 2. PSP2 3. That Exclusive game from Rockstar Games 4. Ne rumour that has been talked about in the past year
Grand Theft Auto 5 EXCLUSIVELY for the PS3. EPIC!! -Rip-Ridah
Sorry for double post.
And now... we wait. *sits in dark room
i hope its not hapen... the engine of kz2 is exclusive of gg
..in terms of software. let's hope it turn into awesome hardware sales... if they dont announce a price drop before, i hope they do it at e3. it would have a big impact and wow factor. (or not)
That's what happens when you have one thing on the menu, PS3 owners enjoy their buffet.
