Videogamer - Whether you think that the PSN hacking debacle was a serious error on Sony's part or an unpreventable crime in which the company was the innocent victim, one thing is clear: Sony needs to move on from PSN-gate, and pronto.
This article... again?
An apology, new PSN games and a good NGP showing will be anough for Sony to win E3? Hardly. 'Winning' E3, if such a thing exists, really comes down to outplaying the competition so to speak. MS may most likly go the route of 3D, massive Kinect support and social networking options (like this iptv thing). Sony could counter this with better 3D, more mofve support (even possibyl having PS Suite PS3 compatible with move users) and then working on some good firmware updates, liek google chrome, cross chat or whatever. Nintendo is definitely going to go all out with the 3DS and Wii2. If Sony can downplay both, such as stronger showing for NGP and undercutting the controller thing for Wii2 with proper cloud gaming between PS3/ NGP, then I think Sony has a chance to win E3. As it stands, gamers win :)
Guys, E3 STARTS ...TOMORROW! =D
I don't consider it tomorrow until I wake up...tomorrow. It's still Saturday for me...even though it's 3am. lulz
I'm a nerd. I always count down the seconds til E3. And when the count down is over and the the E3 logo appears on my tv screen I yell so loud you'd think I had just went SS3 lol. Cant wait for sony's keynote.
I try not to think about it. Time goes by much quicker
Taking risks is key more on Journey and David cages new game. A GREAT Move exclusive would be nice not holding my breath because I value my life. The rest I think we will get. Exclusive DLC for B3 is not necessary but a good port of the game may be. The NGP price is my only concern. 250 dollars for the wifi only and 299 for 3G would be great. Make it happen Sony. Last Guardian release day and demo would be great. New IP and returning IP like GOW. FF7 remake at the end of the Show that is NGP/PS3 compatible would take some thunder away from a potential show stealing Nintendo press conference.
Hey videogamer.com, shut up. That is all.
The real question is : how can they loose, with NGP and best exclusives (again). "In most eyes, I think Nintendo having a shiny new console is an automatic E3 win" lol, yeah, wich is really ridiculous (like last year).
Best case scenario: - A lot of third party support for NGP - $299 for NGP without 3G - PSN interface updated and new services added - PS3 price cut - Plenty of AAA exclusives shown and announced for PS3(Agent, The Last Guardian, new God of War, new Gran Turismo)
A new GT? Idk bout that one. Gt5 just came out a few months ago and gtpsp not long before that. Polyphony is gonna have enough updates on Gt5 to last a while. I wouldnt expect GT6 til after next gen starts.
Yeah, if anything is going to be announced for GT5 I believe it will be new free tracks or cars
Yeah more like GT5 Spec 2. More cars, more tracks, more SP races (DTM and GIA GT licenses), more MP content (both off and online) and slight graphical updates (clear shadows, better looking standards cars like HD decals)
In most eyes, I think Nintendo having a shiny new console is an automatic E3 win. Followed by Sony with a shiny new handheld. From Microsoft, I expect the same as last year's E3: Kinect Halo Gears Call of Duty Rinse and repeat.
u Mean How Sony Already Won E3 :p
Sony has the first party games
show NGP talking about everything from game support at launch window and biggest of them all a good price point. without 3g 249 with 3g maybe 299-349 talk about psn explain your side of the story one more time. talk about how much effort has gone into making psn more secure and telling everyone when psn went down all the security updates were up to date. while reminding everyone nothing on inter-web is 100% secure but you will you will try your best talk about giving everyone free stuff and free psn-plus. also if possible announce a new interface for psn and give all these gamers who have been asking for cross game chat so they can stop asking every time there is sony news to come lol than move on to games the 2 minute gameplay trailer of agent I SAY WHEN IT COMES TIME TO SHOW PSN STUFF THAT'S WHAT YOU START WITH to show people you mean business starhawk uncharted 3 resistance 3 ratchet and clank all 4 one jak in HD ratchet from ps2 in HD getaway 3 development restarted eight days development restarted syphone filter ape escape hd remakes david cage's new game SM studio is working on GOW4 and another game so show atleast one of them what is japan studio working on? where is heavenly sword 2? and finish with showing HALF LIFE 3 bring gabe out one more time.(it still can e for pc,xbox360 and ps3 just like portal 2 was just the announcement at sony's conference) and we have ourself a great E3 conference so are TV networks airing the whole 5hrs of conference?
That would make for an epic hour and a half assuming all that stuff would fit. The other 3 and a half hours is ony special events. doubt it gets aired. Hope it does though.
Talking about how PSN is more secure now would only attract more hacks. Sony has to tread very carefully when talking about this whole mess. Thank the users (briefly) for waiting and mention the Welcome Back program. That's it. Then on to the good stuff.
ah stupid dudebro competition again.......im excited about all the conferences gonna we watching the live stream straight through till the end monday and tuesday
By not showing DC Universe Online?
Sony will do great, then it'll come to the point of the show where they announce Vita's pricing and the crowd will gasp at the price.
Lol I think everybody is scared of that moment. 50 quid the wrong way and its a wrap.
Ugh. Anything over 299 will be a HUGE mistake.
Wait... over $299 is a mistake? That is approximately £200 at retail. How is that a mistake, when it should be completely worth it? iPods were selling at that price and they do less than the NGP will.
One hour of apologies for PSN fiasco :D
They'll have Kevin Butler come out and say, "Yeah, PSN was out, but that just proved what true gamers PS3 owners are. They didn't need online components to have a good time. No! They adapted and over came. God love the PS3 and God bless America!" Then some fanboys with be like, "Yeah, he's right!" Then everyone else will be like, "I think I saw that guy on Shameless, that Fiona chick is hot!"
NO way Sony can win. Everything they have is just stolen from someone else or more rehashes. UNcharted yearly release, stolen features from DS that fanboys will drool over, same old franchises again and again, casual games for Move Wii owners were playing years ago.
Uncharted was released yearly? I must of missed the 2008 and 2010 versions.
LoL @ Valk Some Post Are Just Ridiculous
NGP for less than 300 euros make it happen Sony. If the non 3G version has GPS i will be getting that one.
Just have a few devs show of the capabilities of Build&Battle in a Starhawk multiplayer match. If E3 is about new & innovative gameplay, that should be enough to "win" the event, although I do not consider E3 to be a contest. Next thing you know it's sales that determines succes;)
- NGP for £250-350 - Bountiful amounts of 3rd Party support for NGP - Updates to PSN (It hasn't had any significant updates in nearly 2 years I swear) - Reveal of a new IP or two That's all I ask of them, and I'll be happy. Because on the software front for PS3, they've got it covered well into 2012. So apart from showing off some new IP's or new games in general, they don't need for me to be happy.
Every year the same question is asked for all the 3 major players and every year it means nothing. Honestly, this all just fuels fanboyism.
E3 hasn't even begun and we already know Sony have won.
