8 Wildest E3 2010 Rumors: True or False?

PC World: Every E3 there's the pre-show windup, riddled with gossip and hyperbole, and every year that windup gets longer.

Which ones make sense (or don't)? Which are just pranks? Viral rumors? Intentional misdirecting from public relations agents designed to lead tens of thousands of prying eyes astray? (Culture, E3)

Not exactly Wild rumors
All are pretty much going to happen, with the exception of a $200 PS3, since Sony cant afford to take such a loss when they are releasing a add on and still losing like a billion a year.

hmm... $200 PS3 could mean certain victory if its feasible...
Last I heard sony was profiting on every console sold... so they arent losing anything anymore... They may have some catching up to do.. But so long as they break even on consoles they can make their profits on gaming and peripherals... Given there are new skus for the ps3 that were just recently discovered to be on the way, its possible sony has found ways to further cut production costs. If that is the case, then a $200 ps3 would be feasible.. Last year dropping 100 dollars completely turned sales around for the ps3 and allowed them to outstrip the xbox for the past year by a very wide margin(world wide). Current numbers now show it lags behind the wii about like it lagged behind the xbox last year... put the ps3 at the same price point as the wii and it would be a no brainer for people to buy a ps3 instead of wii... seriously, you would be getting all the features of the wii and a ton more for the same price.. If sony wants to take this motion stuff seriously, and hit the casual market, they gotta match the wii price.

Honestly i instead see them keeping the same price but starting to include a ps eye and motion plus controller with every system they sell. That way if they sell 10million consoles during the year, they have at least 10million garanteed motion customers after the first year. and so on... This kind of coincides with their comments about a relaunch of the system.. that will ensure that 3rd party devs will continue to commit new games to the cause.

Some are a bit unlikely, but chances are at least half of these will turn out to be truth.

HAHHAHA was that a translated article or did they not graduate from middle school?
Seriously...I know we can't expect much from gaming blogs and such, but PC world should have some who can actually write at a 6th grade level.

There were about a million spelling/grammar mistakes and run-on sentences in that article. They should FIRE their editor or something.

I normally dont care about that kind of thing but this article is so FULL OF ERRORS its not funny.

How can a writer for PC World not even know how to properly use an apostrophe?

NATAL WILL BE CHEAP
MS has hyped NATAL and then leaked an exorbitant price.
So that when they release the real price it deserves (probably 50-70)...
... people will think its a steal!!
MS thinks we're that stupid ...
... Well, I'm not biting.

Correction: You don't want the PS3 at $200.

There have been rumors, like with the 360, that a new internal hardware has shown up in reports. One of them includes the PS3.

Sony can keep upgrading the hardware chips and decreasing the price if they do what's been reported. A new chip can very well mean a $200 or $250 PS3. I know you don't want it to happen and it's really obvious because you dismiss that rumor despite the fact that it shares the same source as the 360 Slim, but if it happens, it happens.

Personally, I don't see that happening, which means I don't see a 360 Slim happening. I especially don't see a 360 redesign happening in the case of the box art. Inconsistency sucks and has plagued the PS3, so I don't see why MS would do the same when they have a good formula going.

I am almost certain the there won't be a 200$ PS3 though 360 slim will be announced.

Would be nice if we get some sort of HuluHD.

The only one I found "wild" was that the 3DS will have the same amount of power as PS3. Looking at the Wii you all know what I mean.

The rumors are almost as fun as the show sometimes. Then the hype train crashes and I just can't look away...

$200 PS3 screams win for the game industry.

That means a price drop for Xboxes in order to stay competent

and that means a WHOLE SH*TTON of new entries into the console gaming market. I know so many dudes who are just waiting for price drops on either console to jump in.
