The GDC 2012 floor map has been revealed, and Sony/Microsoft have multiple large booths at the show. Nintendo also has a sizable booth.
Not surprising, really.
i would like if microsoft announce a new console at gdc and release the console this year. i know gdc is a bit dif than e3 but id love a big announcement by microsoft
GDC is tiny, and not much at all is there. These booths are a lot tinier than they appear on this floorplan. I promise you that. Most anything worth seeing will take place at local hotels, behind closed doors in private suites publisher rent out to demonstrate their games. This is NOT E3.
A little off topic, but Speaking of E3 all 2014 conventions have been cancelled in Los Angeles. This will be due to the renovation of the entire convention center and south hall to be connected to one huge futuristic convention hall expandable into the NFL stadium. If that deal goes threw and the stadium is completed which would require the NFLs approval to relocate a team we will see one of the grandest future E3s with so much conference space all tied together instead of having separated floor space as before. The place will rock. I know its 2 years away before the cancellation to take place but it will be interesting to see what city e3 will be held at in 2014.
Yes this should not be surprising to anyone, considering the development kits have already been given to key developers... -(For example EA's announcement of the next Unreal engine already running on next gen consoles).. The only way you can do this is if you have the development kit which is made off of what will be the system specs.. (Give or take a few things - Like it could end up having minor changes, more or less memory but the main specs are there) So I think it's possible that we get an announcement at GDC, just because we are getting close to what will be locked in hardware decisions.. It would be a smart move just so they can get feedback from consumers and see how they feel about the possible direction as far as the specs.. -I for one want dual HDMI ports so you can do dual Monitors, it was promised for PS3, but it never happened.. -So I would love to see that for PS4 as a standard feature as I use Dual monitor all the time on my PC- they would also be able to do some cool things like GT6 in dual screen, or have two player coop where one person could be on one monitor and someone else on the other, instead of having to shrink the screen.. .____........___...____ .____||......||.......____|| ||.........___||.......____||
What matter now is can each of them deliver?
a lot of announced software from past events nothing major will be shown until E3
I would like to see some new engines at GDC. Im not to worried about games at this point, just want to see some foundation laid down for the future.
Quite frankly, not even E3 or TGS hold the big announces now. All publishers have their own events and conferences (even the 1st party ones) and magazines also make many deals exclusive reveals. So now big announces just spread throughout the year. Sure the major conferences still agregate some announces, but it's not like 3 or 4 events hold 50% or more of the big announces in the anymore. Recent exemples are GTAV and RE6, two major games annouced late last year, after the last big conference in the year (TGS). Conferences are still big in first glimpses of gameplay trhough.
Only care about Valve
You might be disapointed mate
Kinect does need alot of space so this isn't a suprise. Hehehe I kid. . .no but seriously.
good one. +bub (funny)
And don't forget those poncho's......it's gonna be a battle if they both demonstrate both new Move and Kinect games. Just kidding, hopefully they'll reveal new game engines.
Microsoft has the biggest.
they need the space for kinect ya know.
Stole my joke
Also if you look closer on the west hall you can see MS have two booths (the other left of blizzard), and Sony has two in the west (right of activision) as well as the big one in the north.
Maybe we'll see the next Unreal Engine for next-gen, an actual in game demo of the Samaritan one from last year. I doubt any big game announcements though.
I hope they show a Resident Evil game for the Vita and some more information on the Vitas bioshock game would be nice as well. XperiaRay
Unveil some more games for the Vita! It's not they don't have enough games at launch or future.
Mystogan is right. Microsoft has the biggest booth. SCEA has a 60 by 60 booth whereas Microsoft has a 60 by 80 booth.
Microsoft wins the console war! /s
Nah Microsoft wins the space war.
Hopefully some new Wii U news like a name change and a release date... *crosses fingers*
Or a video of the Unreal Engine 4 running on the Wii U.
I have my fingers crossed to see the Unreal Engine 4 running on anything. I giggle like a school girl for new futuristic tech.
I, too, hope for some great Vita announcements.
Meanwhile at MS booth, another nonsense kinect game again
Wii U announcement is the only thing that am looking forward to. How can people sit and hope for some Vita or 3DS news? Who cares about those handheld gamings. Wii U will even have handheld gaming included in the Wii U. So go get a Wii U instead.
Dnt really know how to put this, vita isn't out ww yet, of course people want games for it , same as 3ds, less than a year old, if resi is any example we will get some top notch games for it, and yeah the Wii u has me excited a little, but untill more is anounced I'm going to look forward to the stuff I can play
...because Vita is awesome?!?
Yea... I think that Nintendo will throw us a WiiU bone or two. Against my better judgement, I am taking Reggie at his word, and hoping for some concrete WiiU info before E3. Don't get your hopes up though. We both know that Nintendo has no problem making us wait, and pushing back everything WiiU related to E3. No, I haven't heard anything about handheld gaming being included in the WiiU. Would you happen to have a link?
Wii U is handheld gaming if you want to play Wii U games on the controller.
Stuff I'd like to see: - Vita games, Killzone, Gran turismo etc and new ips. - UE 4 and new engines and other next gen tech. Yeah new unannounced consoles just prolly aint going to show up at GDC, but I wish though. Microsoft seem the most likely to show their next console first and I would like anything about their next one, though PS4 is my most anticipated console. Gotta wait a another 5-6 years for next gen nintendo, Wii-U MAD? (Joking) Well seriously Wii-U might get some cool games along, but it seems to be just too little to late. A late current gen system. Without multiple really awesome exlusives I wont get it. Not a Mario or Zelda fan, so they would need some new/other stuff to lure me in. though Im interested to see how their controller can be used and what games will give it a nod for exlusive controller features, playing ALiens Colonial marines with Wii U controller might amp the tension and add to the experience as people have said before.
