Nintendo's Wii, Sony's PlayStation Portable successors to dominate E3 video game expo

Dailypress: LOS ANGELES (AP) — Almost six years ago at the annual Electronic Entertainment Expo, Nintendo unveiled what would eventually become known as the Wii. But the Japanese gaming giant didn't show off the new console's distinctive motion-sensing capabilities until later that year at the Tokyo Game Show. Nintendo won't be such a tease at this year's E3.

Well obviously. That's how it works. New hardware always gets the most attention.

So excited for E3. This will be the first time I'll be watching every conference but I'm most excited for Sony. I know Sony has sometime up their sleeve. I want to see whats new for PSN in terms of OS.

Yes, I have a feeling Jack Tretton will announce something more epic. Or someone will interrupt him in the middle of the speech (like Gabe N did).

PS3 Brand and PS Move, NGP, PSP. They for sure have a lot more content and bigger conference to make.

but this time both are from Japanese companies.
so it doesn't matter to me NGP or Wii 2. Japan still wins!

well im pretty excited for both systems , i hope Nintendo dont forget about the hardcore gamers , if they show hardcore games besides Zelda then i will most likely get the Wii 2 or Project Cafe , im pretty excited to see what sony has to offer this year , i find it very weird that sony press conference hasnt been leaked already , you know to keep up with the tradition lol , anyways i think sony could have one of their best E3s in the past few years

Well nintendo has one new console and one new handheld to show off games for so I bet there will be plenty from them. I also heard they are releasing a new mario game that will be the successor to mario 64. So that's pretty damn cool.

remanutd552721d ago

which im not interested at all but if they go hardcore with their next home console they will most likely get a long time fan back , i was a Nintendo fan before i started to play on sony consoles , bought my Wii just to play Zelda TP but Zelda alone wont make me buy their new console and im not 5 years old anymore , so mario party , kart , galaxy , yoshi and all that crap wont do it , they better show me some mature games and i will be there getting their console day 1 for sure

Japan really needs all the help it can get right now and recuperate from all the HAARP attacks it suffered from the Western Banks.

Silent Hill: Book of Memories and Gundam Memories

Japanese newspaper Nikkei News reported that Nintendo's Wii 2 (Project Cafe) will have a controller with 6" touch screen and conventional buttons, to give you tablet style controls to games, you can tap the touch panel to control objects on the screen, and the controller can also be used as a portable game machine. Furthermore, the controller will include built-in rechargeable battery and camera. The release of Wii success is mid-2012.

Sony revealed additional details of NGP:

Full backward compatibility with PSP, PSP games are run via software emulation, graphics will be smoothed and upscaled, and support dual analogue sticks
PSP game upscaling can be switched on and off by player
WipEout 2048 will have voice activated weapons
Little Deviants is a collection of over 30 mini games designed to make use of all the NPG features
Reality Fighter is an Arugmented Reality game, you can use your face as the character's face, and use photos as stage background.

just the tip of the ice berg IMHO

its about the ds,wii,3ds, project cafe, ngp, psp,ps3

didnt leave anything out. And everything I mentioned has confirmed new announcements

WooHooAlex2721d ago

Which is exactly why I think Microsoft is going to tease Halo 4 for the 360 successor as their surprise.

Close_Second2721d ago

Better be lots of cool stuff for the Move. Honestly, Sony is great at releasing add ons and not doing anything with them.
