I could give 2 s**** about Perfect Dark or Killer Instinct. Now a new Sly Cooper and Shenmue 3 REALLY peak my interests.
BeaRye  +   1730d ago
Valkyrie Profile is all I care about. I'd buy a new system for it, but hope it'd be on PS3 to save me cash.
Istanbull  +   1730d ago
Shenmue 3? Hopefully on a new Sega console, Dreamcast 2!

@jamstorr86: No more Heroes the new Shenmue? LOL kid go play both games, Yakuza is the new Shenmue!

EVERY year theres some article about Shenmue 3 and E3..and in the end, there is only dissapointment.
guitarded77  +   1730d ago
Just like Star Wars Battlefront 3 :(
Wizziokid  +   1730d ago
it wont happen but god i wish it would, even a shenmue 1,2 port or HD remake would do for now... please!
Raichu50  +   1730d ago
Meh Shenmue was dull, No More Heroes is the new Shenmue
jamstorr86  +   1730d ago
How the hell is no more heroes the new shenmue? have you even played shenmue?
christheredhead  +   1730d ago
have you even played no more heroes?
NYC_Gamer  +   1730d ago
i'm sorry but i have to disagree you cant even compare the two
Tainted Gene  +   1730d ago

Thoreau  +   1730d ago
no more heroes is not the new shenmue, but shenmue was boring to me.
GREYFOXXXXXX  +   1730d ago

Dude i couldn't agree more i hope its multi platform that way everyone can enjoy it. But if they make it exclusive and its not ps3 ill definitely be buying another system just for shenmue

im in the same boat. I played the second one and loved it so if it gets announced and its exclusive to the 360 then microsoft will have my money.

ino i have got a PS3 only but i am in same situation if it does get released it could be on XBOX 360 only because the 2nd one just came out on XBOX but theres still a possibility though! but im getting a new console either way i love the series!
Ryo-Hazuki  +   1730d ago
one can only wish for shenmue 3 to be announced
DaBadGuy  +   1730d ago
Legend of Dragoon 2.
jamstorr86  +   1730d ago
With games such as heavy rain and LA NOIRE pushing the boundaries of games and real life, bringing to games a higher sense of realism and true to life behaviours and such, Shenmue would fit right in with this brand of games. hell, shenmue, to some degree, invented this higher sense of realism in gaming.
Legion  +   1730d ago
The only thing with Shenmue is that I have recently gone back and played the previous versions and they just don't hold up to the memory that I had in playing them.

So if they do make a Shenmue 3 then they need to look into some Major upgrade to gameplay and mechanics.

I have recently gone back and played Knights of the Old Republic and it still holds up... but that would be a nice thing to see remade with todays game engines!
jamstorr86  +   1730d ago
what you do see though when playing them again, when you get into the mind set of when and how these two games were made, is the boundaries being pushed and how ambitous sega were when making this game. compared to other games at the time for the dreamcast, this game still holds up.
Legion  +   1730d ago
Not understanding what you are getting at jamstorr86? Are you asking me how the game stands up to other games in the past or now? Of course it held up to other games in the past... but playing them now I just don't get the same enjoyment out of 'em.

What I see when playing them now is that it feels very clunky and the controls and interaction is just not there. I have played too many more current games (i.e. Mass Effect) where you interact and tell a story and I just don't get nostalgic when playing Shenmue again.

Now as mentioned... I DID get nostalgic when playing KOTOR and find that it STILL holds up to todays games. And many other old Saturn games I have played recently I still find enjoyable... but Shenmue felt weak. Especially Shenmue 2... Shenmue 1 had me a little bit in the beginning but didn't take me more then an hour before I was over the nostalga attempt.

shenmue 3 and MGS 5 would make my E3 :D

MGS5 OR GTFO (as they say)

Don't count on Killer Instinct, Rare's currently only working on Kinect Titles.
Legion  +   1730d ago
I don't care for the Killer Instinct game myself... but I wouldn't count out seeing at least an XBLA version of K.I. to come out later.

RARE has been the major focus of Microsofts Kinetic line-up and have been looked at from the beginning to be the foundation for Kinetic games.

But you will see a Perfect Dark and Conker game out for the 360 before the next system more then likely. Note Conker might be Kinetic though.
sjaakiejj  +   1730d ago
I can guarantee that you won't, unless they are transformed into Kinect games.
Legion  +   1730d ago

Wow... a guarantee, you must work for Bestbuy?

Bestbuy? Sorry mate, not everyone on this site has a worthless life and a fulltime job in retail.

As for me, I know which products Rare is currently working on, including the ones that aren't announced yet. I also know some of the stuff that's coming to their Kinect Sports title. Whichever way you put it however, I was told that the only thing they would be working on until the next Xbox would be Kinect, as that's what Microsoft wanted them to do.

I don't understand why we can't get a proper HD remake of Superman 64!
Nikkelz  +   1730d ago
pardon me if im not remembering correctly but didnt that game suck (review score wise)?
I mean really bad....didnt it hold the title of WORST GAME EVER.....why would you want a remake???
jonlynch  +   1730d ago
That's the joke. Superman 64 is remembered as one of the worst games ever. It was broken as all hell and the gameplay just had Superman flying through rings. Fairly certain newn is just F'ing with ya.
newn4gguy  +   1730d ago

Sorry. It's an old joke. I'll try to be original next time. Lol.
banjadude  +   1730d ago
All I know is, developers have MANY options to revive/continue many past titles....

Lets see... there is:
- Sly Cooper
- Jak & Daxter
- Shenmue
- Perfect Dark
- Killer Instinct
- Conker
- Chrono Break (HA!)
- True Parasite Eve 3 sequel
- Legend of Dragoon 2
- Dark Cloud 3
- KH 3

* Of course, I'm missing a ton more, but those are just the ones I can think of, off the top of my head.

NYC_Gamer  +   1730d ago

Emilio_Estevez  +   1730d ago
It is tops on my list, with SW Battlefront 3 close behind.
Oldman100  +   1730d ago
E.T. 2 is all i want.
southernbanana  +   1730d ago
It is looking as though this will be a great E3 if you are to believe all of the possible announcements. Shenmue 3 would only make me forget about everything else that is announced...
KeiserSosay4788  +   1730d ago
please be true. Please, I want to find the 3 wu du.
Nac  +   1730d ago
Honestly, this late in the life span, I would love to see a come back of franchises from last gen, hell, I thinks its already happening, look at Deus Ex and Thief. I mean rally, what else are they going to fill these last years with?

BTW, I want a Crimson Skies 2 damn it!!!!
Legion  +   1730d ago
Thief??? Are they remaking that for this Gen? I am aware and prepared to purchase Deus Ex... but have heard nothing about a Thief revival? I would be looking hard at it though as I liked the stealth elements alot in that game.
lochdoun  +   1730d ago
I don't give a f*** about Sly Cooper,
I want Killer Instinct 3 and Crimson Skies 2!!!
