TheSixthAxis explains how Sony can 'win' E3 and avoid disaster.
@ greenrings seriously? what about the games??? you are so lame dude
Lets just say the lead platform for Black Ops is 360.
on both and its hardly a big deal dude . I am sure they can wait, its not like its the end of the world and respawn have gone to EA now.
So where is the PS3 Resurgence Map Pack?
" So where is the PS3 Resurgence Map Pack?" Aren't you guys testing it for us? Like always?
to ppl who say sonys conference is gonna be filled with move just like MS was filled with kinect, u couldnt be more wrong. wanna know my predictions? 1= sony has already given there move conference at GDC remember. 2= sony has already anounced kz3 lbp2 infamous2 plus more on gt5 wat does this evidence mean folks? sony is gonna give little stage time on move, little stage time on kz3 lbp2 infamous2 ect, and have plenty of stage time for some new IPs and New exclusives. New exclusives+New IPs= WIN E3
Man how many of these articles are there gonna be, how Sony can win it jeez Sony fans must be really sceptical as to how they are gonna pull off a win.
with games you know ... because this is what its all about GAMES
Seems like Sony can win this one by doing nothing. MS have gone down in my estimations after this... There was no secret stuff at all - they really just have nothing right now. I guess those CoD maps are what passes for exclusives on Xbox now :/ r.
let's just say nobody cares u can play it on ps3 to and cod is played out anyway are u forgetting something? 3 words *EDIT*lol fail 2 words 1 number DEAD SPACE 2 ps3 lead platform but gusse what it means nothing
Let him have his non exclusive content and his small non exclusive real games (eg non kinect only games) library this year. Don't feed the troll as they say or he will grow. MS keep paying activision so much money they can't afford to buy exclusives anymore. That's what happens when you deal with Kotick.
Answer: Just show up.
Sony WILL win the E3. GT5, Killzone 3, Infamous 2, LBP2 and The Last Guardian are confirmed for the conference + surprises + casual AND many hardcore games for Move, so Sony has already won.
Games. E3 seems more about hardware lately (not just the motion stuff) and while it's cool and obviously belongs at such an event, if you already have the system and don't care about how it may increase sales and whatnot, it's all pretty pointless for you. So, games for me.
Sony has already won E3. All Sony Snipers who will be viewing today's conference have a shipload of exclusives that will utilize the Cell Broadband Engine to it's maximum. Working in perfect harmony with the seamless features of PlayStation® Network and PlayStation® Move. Dark Sniper can tell you exactly what Sony does not need in order to steal today's E3 Extravaganza. Sony does not need to give away free PlayStation®3 consoles to win the hearts of gamers, PlayStation®3 has AAA software that will captivate the minds of everyone across the globe. Sony does not need to hire over excited Asian children and pretend to enjoy an Eyepet imitation with obvious latency. With the onslaught of AAA exclusives that will be showcased abroad all PlayStation platforms, Sony Computer Entertainment has once again proven that the future lies with PlayStation. Only PlayStation®3 will give the true gamers who are looking to continue enjoying traditional gaming while simultaneously enhancing the hardware to surpass anything Xbox 360 can fathom. Dark Sniper will enjoy his Courvoisier and cocktail shrimp and enjoy all of the gaming bliss that Jack Tretton, Kaz Hirai, Kevin Butler and staff will provide. $niper
LOL DarkSniper, your comments are GOLD!! *bubs*
Well BAM!!! There it is!
Now this was some funny shit. I can imagine you doin a suave Robin Leach voice w/on the side of your mouth.
darksniper has spoken... redrum059 over and out.
is Gold like mayweather vs pacquiao honorable mention goes to breakfast + green ring of life......just here to give joy
they got Gear 3, Halo, Fable 3, and kinect not include multiplat. Kinect look really tired to play, I don't think I last 15min with it.
+ I am happy already because i am getting the games i wanted i.e KZ3 + LBP2 + MotorStorm 3... ;-P Anything else is a bonus.
Show up and Show Out ^.^
That would be enough for those who don't attend the show and have no chance to get a free 360. But for reporters who actually attend there...I don't know.
Yeah, they pretty much just have to show up at this stage. They could say "Hello" as a keynote address, but it's pretty superfluous. Just a montage of the games they're releasing this year is enough.
Sony already won. Lol. They announced more exclusives before E3 than MS announced AT E3. Lol. The PS3 is the console to own now. People will see that in 9 hours. ;) Edit: Killzone 3, Little Big Planet 2, Socom 4, The Last Guardian, The Agency, Sly Cooper HD Collection, inFamous 2, Motorstorm: Apocalypse. Nothing, huh? Edit 2: Gran Turismo 5, the press already loves Move, Gameloft dungeon crawler, Home is down for "maintenance" during the press conference, and United Front Games is announcing a PS3 exclusive.
Really? They won the show even though they have shown NOTHING yet. Seriously be realistic, 80% of Sony's show with be about the Move just like Microsoft's was about Kinect. If Sony shows stupid crap fitness games, and little vagina animals like Microsoft did, then both Sony and Microsoft fail horribly. If they show better games with the Move like SOCOM 4 and more "hardcore" type of games then Sony will hands down win. Don't be such a fanboy and start shouting out Sony wins when you know damn well Move will be there focus on the show. So wait and see. EDIT: All of those games have already been announced for a while now (with the exception of Sly Cooper) so as far as surprises you have to wait and see. They have shown nothing new at E3 as their conference isn't till tomorrow. Sure they showed off a lot of great games BEFORE E3, but as far as already won E3. No because its not tomorrow yet.
Still we can say Sony already won in hardcore minds... before E3 started. With the releases of infamous 2, Killzone 3, Sly Cooper (?), TLG, GT5, and many more titles Sony could just sit and relax. Or just say "We have so n so games coming out on so n so date. Seeya" Standing Ovation!
He's being realistic, Microsoft's line-up yesterday was total CRAP. Sony has a LOT up their sleeve ready to unveil and the public knows that. Tons of gameplay to show, new titles, and even a BRAND NEW console (not just upgrades).
stop being mad dude, just because there were no new exclusives shown doesnt mean u hav to attack other ppl
lol I'm attacking no one, I'm just not the fanboy that goes around saying Sony already one because MS failed to impress. For all we know Sony could come out show the Move for 80% of the time with crap games just like Microsoft did. Its very obvious Microsoft and Sony are going head to head with this motion controlled crap so of course Sony will try to their best to win over the 360 fans. I'm not saying Xbox won, in fact I believe Sony will win hands down, but I'm not going to be like "They already won" because they could pull some crap show just as Microsoft did.
Reading comprehension FAIL. He clearly said that Sony already won BECAUSE it announced all those games BEFORE E3. Those games that Sony announced last week and the week before (Killzone 3, inFamous 2) are more than anything MS has announced recently. If you look at it, the list of "AAA" (I hate this word) exclusives coming for the PS3 simply outweighs anything coming for the 360. We know about Gears 3, Halo: Reach, and Fable 3 and have known for a while. Microsoft had remained pretty mum about their games before their E3 showing for a reason: they did not have much to reveal. Sony can have its entire conference about Move (which, by the way, has already shown to be superior to Kinect based on the opinion of people who have used both, especially in its application in "core" gaming) - and still win. But we all know that will not be the case. Sony will show trailers/live demos of The Last Guardian (very likely), FF vs XIII (hopefully), GT5 (very likely), inFamous 2 (very likely), Killzone 3 (very likely), Uncharted 3 (wishful thinking), Socom 4 (very likely), WKC 2 (very likely), Resistance 3 (probably), FFXIV (very likely) - and these are games that have already been announced or have been highly hinted at.
you're being unrealistic. When has sony ever NOT show games, exclusive ones at that. Look at what the people are saying, people who prefer the 360...Its almost like they feel abandoned. If you can say that all of sonys games have been announced prior to e3 so have MS's. We all knew about fable, crackdown, gears etc so whats your point. If sony shows just one exclusive or multiplatform game with psmove without smoke or mirrors(ie faked) they've won and effectively shown more. Time will tell but a betting man would definitely bet on sony to deliver more than that thing yesterday...easily
They could line 30 of their largest staff members along the front of the presentation stage, instruct them to remove their pants, and then give further instruction to piss on the audience, and they'd still come out better than Microsoft have.
You're a sunshine of the spotless mind :)
They just need to show a balance of everything, hopefully they don't show too much Move, but enough to make me want to actualy buy it. And I wanna see a lot of gameplay and trailers of some games that haven't already been announced. TBH I don't care who they beat, just as long as it's a good show i'm happy :)
Well said article. Cannot wait till tonight!
Sony has already won with the announcement of Sly Cooper HD remakes in 3D.
You know based off of Dark Sniper's comment: Microsoft steal rips off games, they steal games, and steal ideas. So they have no more new games coming out(new IPS), unoriginal, not innovating, and they are leaving us to cater to the casuals. So what do you do? Like allstate you switch. Gamers who switch from 360 to PS3 save alot of money plus $50 a year.
they can easily win the e3 if they announce the gt5 release date (what a headacheeeeeeeeeeee)
Based on what microsoft has shown...all they have to do is show up.
Watching Kevin Butler mock the 360 on stage = win by default.
It would be tough to lose this one. Sony has a huge lineup of games they've already shown, but who wouldn't want to see more about inFamous 2, LBP 2, Killzone 3, The Last Guardian, GT5, ect.? They could show bits of those games, demonstrate Move, throw in some PSP stuff, and they'd look pretty good. But I think they're going to do a lot more than that, and if you thought Kevin Butler was damaging with his "Pew, pew, pew, pew!" comments, he's got a lot more ammunition after what Microsoft did yesterday. Nothing about that Kinect demo is safe from his sharp tongue, not even Skittles the tiger cub. Nintendo hasn't exactly blown everyone away with recent conferences, but I have little doubt they are going to turn some heads with the next Zelda game, and they could have some other surprises in store. However, this "vitality sensor" business or whatever hasn't sounded so great. We'll see if they surprise us. They are certainly capable of making incredible games; SMG 2 was a clear reminder of that.
How can SONY "Lose" E3.... because really... HOW? -End statement
i don't see how really even if they don't show up its a automatic win 4 them
I just hope move and psp take less than an hour of their presentation although i don't think it will happen
at how Microsoft didn't announce a single, first or second party developed new IP at their conference. Crytek is third party, and more than likely own the rights to their game, Kingdom. it's more than likely that the game could go multi-platform after a timed exclusivity to the 360. let's not forget the "Only On 360" Bioshock, Eternal Sonata, and Tales of Vesperia. Sony doesn't have to do much to win E3. they can just show trailers/live demos of the already announced games (SOCOM 4, Little Big Planet 2, Killzone 3, inFAMOUS 2, Motorstorm: Apocalypse, DC Universe Online, The Last Guardian, Gran Turismo 5, White Knight Chronicles 2, The Agency, etc), and they'd have it in the bag. the fact that they still have yet to announce some rumored titles like Resistance 3, Starhawk, Ico/Shadow of the Colossus Collection, Sly Cooper Collection, Twisted Metal PS3, Syphon Filter PS3, etc, just means there's enough fodder to make their E3 presentation OVERKILL if they CHOOSE to do so. the benefit of having 30 first and second party studios at your disposal is paying off. why, i remember just a few short years ago how the PS3 was trashed for "not having any games." heh. heh heh heh ha ha hahahaha hahahah HAAA AHAHAHAHAHAAHAHAHAHAHAAHAHAHAH AAAHAAAAAAAAAHAHAAA *ahem* sorry about that. looking forward to the Nintendo and Sony conferences, that's for sure. i'm already very satisfied with the PS3 titles revealed so far. any new announcements (whether new IPs or sequels), will be icing on the cake.
Microsoft failed so badly it's not even funny. Then they wanted to make everyone happy by giving free 360s. Typical. Ubisoft's conference was better. Geez. Sony going to blow the roof off. :)
Im excited if they finish the dead space 2 demo with playstation move, then come out and show off that game on the move commercials with the flash light, that would be a good "move" to make.
by showing games, and announcing some awesome new ones. And by not trying to shove the PS3 as something other than a gaming console, and trying to prove how casual they are, and that stupid twins can talk to each other and sound completely stupid while doing so while using the PS3. I'm really rooting for Sony, they're the last hardcore standing. Even if someone is a 360 fanboy, they should also root for Sony. I don't want E3 to be the showcase for the casuals.
@thegreenringsoflife what you fail to understand and acknowledge is that microsoft have milked you to the core. First they give you a system with the highest fail rate, no wi-fi, or hdd just to lure people in, i do say it worked. PS3 came out and they were scared by what they saw so the had to bring out the Elite xbox, still failing to provide wi-fi, why? They said that technology wasn't need, which it really was. And provide a wi-fi add on at a ridiculous price. now they provide it in there FOURTH xbox model, only because they have made maximum profit from a cheap console with a high failure rate. clearly not caring for the customers. I have to admit Kinect was a good concept, but they never executed it well, they games weren't the best, showed pre-recorded footage which the hired actors got wrong. if they at least showed live footage it would have been better, this just proves that they can't execute and develop that tech properly to how they say it can work, oh yh no milo?? Ps3 had it locked from start, they have the most exclusive games to come out, M$ only have a fat wallet. I like they way you defend them with your dare souls, but at the end of the day your a gamer, you should put your self first and criticise what they are doing wrong that you need them to do right, you pay their wages. I'm not sayin Ps3 is the best console, but its the best in terms of the reliabilty and the power potential it has, ofcourse it has it flaws, and today we will see if sony has heard our cries and come out with a solution.
