i really believe that MS, will be kinect focused and depend on third party and timed dlc

iamnsuperman1895d ago

Same I see this E3 will be Kinect games to capitalise on the good sales it has. Of course Gears and Forza will be there for definite but maybe some new exclusive but hard to say. I would say more Kinect

LOGICWINS1895d ago

Yeah most likely, but I'm predicting that GTA5 will be a timed 360 exclusive...you heard it here first folks.

iamnsuperman1895d ago

maybe timed DLC but timed exclusive????? Hard to justify why Rockstar would screw PS3 users except for a large amount of money but even then they could get a lot of money with just timed DLC

ksense1895d ago (Edited 1895d ago )

I would bet more on the prediction that it could be a ps3 exclusive

with regards to the video I say they are right. I think Microsoft will have a price drop and more focus on making kinect look like the next step for hardcore gamers as well and Sony and Nintendo will be the ones with the reveals that hardcore gamers really wanna see.

It is hard enough for rockstar to release one game on a consistent time period do u rly think they will have planned two releases around the same time. they always show one game and advertise it until release before releasing another just like red dead, la noire etc...

My guess would be max payne 3 next because they already started releasing screenshots a little bit and then Agent and the end of next year will be gta v or early 2013.

"Hard to justify why Rockstar would screw PS3 users except for a large amount of money but even then they could get a lot of money with just timed DLC"

Because PS3 owners are getting Agent anyways. If Rockstar releases Agent and GTA5 around the same time, MOST gamers will get one or the other(not both).

Therefore, Rockstar knows that they won't gain THAT much revenue from GTA5 if they intially release it on the PS3.

Which is why Rocjstar would make MORE money by letting M$ pay them $200 million initally for 6 months time exclusivity and THEN release it on the PS3 later on when people are DONE playing Agent and are willing to buy another open world game.

Why would Rockstar release two games at the same time that is just bad business. Sorry to crush you hopes but that makes no sense.

LOGICWINS1895d ago

^^Yeah, I agree, my logic is a little flawed..but I still believe it will happen.

Regulator1895d ago

For someone with "logic" in his name you sure do type a lot of shit.

wsoutlaw871895d ago

with the crazy amout of money they paid for gta's timed exclusive dlc, imagine how much it would cost MS to get the whole game timed exclusive. Theres no way they spend that much

Games for the core is all I want from MS this E3.

Zir01895d ago

I'm expecting Agent and FFvsXIII muliplat announcements (which are a given now with SE fail financials).

Also 26 new Kinect games (since the lineup is meant to triple) with a third being hardcore.

And GTA5 and Halo 4 for the big guns.

munish231895d ago

I'm hoping for some sort of app store for Kinect as well as some new functions for the dashboard, maybe implementing something like youtube right into the dashboard. Obviously I want to see some hardcore games shown, some new IPs hopefully. I doubt Microsoft will disappoint this year since they know what they are up against at this year's E3.

Mr Tretton1895d ago

Unless they are going to announce that they have formed new studios to create their own franchises then I really don't care anymore. I'll be selling my 360 at the turn of the gen to help pay for the PS4...or hell, maybe the next Nintendo too.
