Surprises no one's seen for E3, says Sony boss

Jack Tretton, president and CEO of SCEA has made his first entry on the company's newly launched blog, and he promises a few surprises for next month's E3 event in LA.

"We are heading into one of the biggest shows of the year for the videogame industry," he wrote. "E3 is only a month away. Everyone here at SCEA is working very hard and is dedicated to pushing the development envelope to show you not only new stuff for games like Heavenly Sword, Uncharted: Drake's Fortune and Ratchet & Clank Future: Tools of Destruction, but also a few surprises we have up our sleeves that no one has seen. You can check in here for updates as we head into the show, and I will be sure to report back once E3 begins."

First hooray

Fingers crossed that E3 will finally silence the critics and provide some real substance to what is already a slow turning of the tide in PS3's favor.

The games are coming and the service is improving. First a trickle then a flood. I pity the fools who don't have one.

Oops I better get one then.

But I'm saving and like millions of others, waiting for the price drop and the AAA games so pity me not. I'm no fool. lol

a turning of the tide would be if the ps3 was increasing in sales, by a larger margin each month, while the wii and 360 were selling less and less each month, and by a larger margin than increasing ps3 sales. so far, i have seen the exact opposite. the ps3 has been DECREASING in sales each month, while the wii and 360 have sustained their sales.

should we all get a life preserver in order not to drown from this enormous "turning of the tide" you are talking about? lol

also, both the wii and 360 are ALSO coming out with more and better games. it's not as if the ps3 is coming out with great games, while the wii and 360 are going to be sitting there with zero new anticipated titles coming out (can you say Halo3, Mass Effect, Bio Shock, Blue Dragon, etc.). as for services coming out, the 360 is going to be lauching their IPTV service in the fall or winter, and it will be the complete entertainment center which the ps3 had once been promised to be....

* Developers are gaining more experience with the ps3 resulting in better product(incl 3rd Parties like Ubisoft).

* PSN getting better.

* regular Firmware updates.

* return of rumble

* quality new games coming, Haze, Warhawk, Little Big Planet, The Agency, Eye of Judgement, Folklore, Uncharted, Heavenly Sword, etc

* as well as established franchises MGS, FF, GT, KZ, Ratchet, Socom, Singstar, Parappa, Loco etc.

Like if you can't see things changing over the next year then you better get your eyes examined or better still, see a therapist.

hell yeah!!!

or the getaway, afrika, wipeout, "ico 3", ...
the possibilities are endless...

So companies will announce new, previously unheard of titles at E3? No way!

ivant3811d ago (Edited 3811d ago )

This new IP was unheard of 2 weeks ago.

And it's looking pretty damn good.

Yes way!

_insane_cobra3811d ago

Um, that was me being sarcastic. I mean, of course there'll be tons of new announcements.

SDS Gamerfiend3811d ago

Just like the one on the 11th?! Please Sony, give the people the f'ing games already!

Babylonian3811d ago

But some dude did in a podcast for a site I forgot the name of. You could also have said "just like at GDC 2007". You people really like negative sh!t about Sony. Even if they come with something very good you still say "meh" or "that's it?".

Well anyway, whatever makes you guys sleep good at night. I just like to say BRING ON THE GOOD STUFF.

ericnellie3811d ago (Edited 3811d ago )

Babylonian you're right - Sony didn't hype June 11th some guy did.

SDS Gamerfiend you're right too - We do need more games! Especially when they're already talking about the release date of Heavenly Sword being pushed back until September:( I just hope Sony's E3 presentation isn't filled with CGI movies that people think are in-game, real time game play. I just hope after E3, I'll be in a state of awe!

felidae3811d ago

no one knows how the agency will play .. but i think it's a step in the right direction.

at the moment i'm much more interested in some upcoming ps3 titles than any 360 games that are coming out. don't get me wrong - i like my 360 but it feels more and more like there will be only fantasy roleplaying and shooting stuff for the xbox - it feels like it's a console without a soul - so cold.

but i still have some hope for the 360.

my Wii is just for party nights with my friends and my girlfriend likes to play some boxing. i think i will sell the system by the end of the year.

i think sony has the widest library of games to choose from.

Andres3811d ago

Lots and lots of surprises from the sony people.. but when am I actually going to experience those surprises in my livingroom????
