E3 2009 will be a turning point for Sony. Here are a few announcements they must make during the event in order to make a triumphant return to the console wars race.
more games...... check playable games......check new game announcements.....check new psn announcement.......check IF this is what happens then im GOOD.
Can't see a flaw in logic, as long as there's tons of great games I'm happy
Everything you said, and to narrow it down for me....my most wanted.... Team ICO Uncharted 2 Ratchet & Clank: ACIT GOW3 Quantum Theory GT5 And new news on a very strong Multi-plat line-up... Beyond good and evil 2 Assassins creed 2 Dark void Borderlands CODMF 2 Dead rising 2 Brutal legend Bioshock 2 Rage And bring Demon souls to NA and EU..... And show us something on War devils.... Cambridge studios should also be showcasing,perhaps Sir Drake of Medievil will be back? Or a new IP in the same style and genre? Now if Insomniac can show us that rumored new IP (act/RPG/platformer) and Media molecule can give us more LBP content and a "glimpse" into an all new plarforming Ip that would be out of this World...
Lol. Sorry but... The article is kind of weak.. Although they make some great ones sometimes..
if Microsoft Xbox 360 drop some big bombs at E3 2009... watch for a massive suicide climbing rate in 2009 and 2010. Come on people its just gaming consoles, there is a lot of more important things to care and pay attention in life and do positive things about it. WAKE UP!
Yes, there are more important things, def. But as the above poster said, I don't see SONY hyping anything. I see N4G and a bunch of blogs hyping things left and right for all consoles. There's a disconnect there, and smart gamers/readers really need to start noticing that separation between what a company says, and what a bunch of people on a board say. I want to see what MS brings to the table at E3. I can't wait, as more games = more happy gamers. If their "big bomb" is another multiplatform title or a year old PS3 port, well, sadly two things will happen - 1)The media will hype it up as "zomg giant bomb! PS3 is doomed again!" regardless of what the game actually is. Expect the BS blog rate to increase before anything else. 2) I will be utterly disappointed. Bring on Alan Wake already!
more quality exclusives. We have games to get hyped about, you have what exactly? I mean, no offence but you're waiting for e3 for announcements of games that might not see the light of day till next year or beyond ala 08's FF announcement. I want to play more games on top of the multiplatform stuff. Im getting hyped. sony are not hyping. I remember what greenberg was saying at the front end of the year and we like suckers fell for it. People of your type labled the console WITH the actual games 'waitstation' ...how ironic now its all about 'teh salez' not 'teh exclusives' anymore. Drakes.... this year, Ratchet...this year, Infamous... this year. I dont need to list them all, my point is obvious.
This place its like a nursery of PS3 grown up fanatics.
than a wannabe patcher/shareholder. I play with a pad, you play with a calculator. I play games, you play numbers and predict suicides :) So what if we are getting hyped for games. What exactly is wrong with that. If i didn't see 360 guys hyping alan wake forza 3 plus.....erm....u know..... those other games i'd almost agree with ya in terms of setting ourselves up for disappointment BUT thats not the whole picture now is it. What makes the difference is that there are more titles on sony's side to get, 'rightly or wrongly', hyped about. Both sides hype stuff EVEN DLC yes DLC. Nothing wrong with that in your eyes i suppose ??? look at your own comments before you lable others.
Ever since the Heavenly Sword LBP pack I noticed a rise in interest in the title on other forums so I am hoping there will be a Heavenly Sword 2 this year.
Sony already knows what to do and has been doing it for a while now, they are giving us the games WE want, and they are actually making GOOD games! They could only show footage of some of the upcoming games and just announce a few others, give us some release dates and they would "win" E3!
ps3fanboys will have many disappointments in e3 ... lol
PS3 already won E3 like last year. MS are cowards, stealers, and losers. :)
Because having an abortion and flushing your fertilized egg down the toilet was on it.
For me, nothing beats MAG. I am a ex SOCOM player waiting for Zipper to do their thing on the PS3 (not Slant6) I know. many of you are not convinced by MAG yet......you will be......you will be. But man am i hyped for Uncharted2 online, (Co-op or other, will be very welcomed) PSP update TeamICO (finally....maybe) ...and we will be playing inFamous SOON!!! Sony FTW
"E3 2009 is going to be a crucial one for Sony, who is currently struggling due to sluggish PSP and Playstation 3 sales." really now?
like they need to do anything, they would triumph anyway:D
To be annouced during keynote and then released that evening. It will include all the communication features that we have been craving for and more... We all know how strong the software line up is,and how more powerful the hardware is, the only missing link is a stronger online componant in the psn.
I really can't think of anything for Sony to do...they've been hard at work bringing things to PSN and the Playstation 3 itself (Games wise from first party studios). The Developers have been doing their thing as well by creating such great games or are making great games (Demon's Souls, Cross-Edge and what not). Trying to find anything else that Sony should do seems like Nitpicking in my opinion. A price drop? Well isn't Dell selling 80gbs for 299.99? Go grab that. Fall line up? Most of us already know about what's coming in fall unless their are some super secret ones we do not know of. As for PSP I play mine at least everyday with Monster Hunter and Ad-hoc party. With another Monster Hunter right around the corner at least for me their doesn't seem to be a need for a redemption as it never fell from grace for me.
Kingdom Hearts III teaser trailer some sort of announcment FF XIII VS Trailer 80 gig PS3 cut to $299 phasing out 40 gigs Remaining 40 gig modes $199 psp Price cut $150 PSP big firmware update Friends list and or Trophys coming by the end of the year. also all psp games will also be realased on psn Store psn preview including FFVII and Metal Gear Solid as psone classics
*prayin* no talkin about ps2 no talkin about ps2 *prayin*
I wish SONY WILL STOP TALKING ABOUT SALES AND REPORTS OF HOW MANY UNITS SOLD. NO ONE DONT CARE ABOUT SALES OR GREATEST HITS. WE AND YOU NEED TO SHOW OFF SOME MORE AND MORE SOFTWARE THAT WILL HELP PUT PS3 BACK ON THE MAP. HOPEFULLY THIS YEAR THEY WON'T TALK ABOUT SALES, BUT MORE AND MORE GAMES WHICH IM LOOKING FORWARD TO SEEING E3 09'. AND IM SURE SONY WILL BE BACK ON TOP ONCE AGAIN. AND I DON'T THINK THEY WILL DROP THIER PRICE TAG ONCE AGAIN PEOPLE.
they have to. that's all part of reporting to their investors and their shareholders. everyone does it, even Microsoft.
A triumphant return to the console wars race? IMO they only time they were out of the race, was when M$ brought their system out a year earlier. Even then the PS2 was still selling. M$ better do something to stay in the race.
When, not if, Sony decides to push back or forward the release of some of the PS3 exclusives because of the massive glut of awesome games coming out at the end of the year. With, what will be by then, probably worldwide sales approaching 30 million, there is not a large enough user base to support all of the games coming out at the end of the year for the system. And with the gaming stalemate that is the early period of the new year, they will likely sell a lot better, and be good for system sales, if released in a quieter environment.
