Is Sony about to own E3?

The Electronic Entertainment Expo, or "E3", as we all know it, is the "big one" of video game conferences. Every year thousands of media, potential investors and retailers embark on The City of Angels in Southern California, as the industry's biggest publishers showcase their most exciting games across three epic Los Angeles Convention Center floors.
This year's event is fast approaching, and with only five weeks to go it's already shaping up to be one of the biggest and best E3 events we've seen for a while. Nintendo is poised to showcase Wii U, which is surely enough reason to pay attention to the epic three-day event.
Sony is also set to have a big showing as the showroom doors open on June 6, with a number of exciting exclusives, potential blockbusters and new reveals sure to reinvigorate an arguably dry time for gamers.
Can Sony make E3 2012 its own? (E3, PS Vita, PS3)

I believe it can... I mean, they've been announcing new exclusives left and right, that they could have saved for E3. They must have something big planned if they can just throw something like Battle Royal out before E3 even.
Abash  +   869d ago
They're already owning the Holiday season for me with PlayStation All-Stars and Sly: Thieves in Time
GribbleGrunger  +   869d ago
i agree, and i think that is exactly why they did the same last year. Sony basically get a free month of game promotion while the other two companies wait to unveil their biggies at E3.

if you're not obsessed with 'winning' E3 (as some fanboys are) and just take these announcements for what they are, then the excitement lasts 3 to 4 weeks instead of 3 to 4 days. i prefer it this way, but i'm also sure that Sony will still have some interesting announcements at E3 too

Either Sony or Nintendo
Game4life  +   869d ago
all stars, bioshock,and little big planet karting for me (though bioshock is not ex clusive)
showtimefolks  +   868d ago
here is my E3:

1. we will see some gameplay for last of us.

2. we will get either an update on last guardian or new news at all till TGS

3. all star battle royal release date and more characters(i don't know about y'all but i think launching this game in Q1 2013 is better than launching it in busy fall what y'all think?

4. more single and multiplayer news about god of war

5. new info on SLY 4(this is also one of the games that i think can do a lot better if launched in 2013 or launch it before the whole fall big hitter)

6. ratchet and clank hd collection trailer

7. and this maybe a surprise syphon filter

to be honest with you that might be all for ps3, just like last year most of their E3 will be about VITA.

also expect to hear nothing about anything related to ps4 nothing ZERO.

I think it will be a smart choice if sony introduces a new VITA bundle with system,memory stick and one or two games for a good price point.

Here is what i am hoping for:

agent new

bioshock move gameplay trailer/or live on stage presentation

ff 13 versus any news

kingdom hearts hd collection

gta hd collection

news from QD on their next game after heavy rain

news from sony bend studio about their next project

also valve might announce LFD3 how about LFD 1-2 with all its DLC on one disk for 39.99?

as much as fanboys talk about winning E3 to me sny has won the last 4 because they show us games,games and more games and as a gamer that's all i want them to do.

what are sucker punch working on?

It depends do Sony again talk and talk, or shows some games.
Its easy to win E3, by just showing so much games as you can.
Showing some games and just talk and talk wont give you win.

Sony has so many games, but they talk sometime too much.

Well it depends on if Sony reveals new hardware or not cos Nintendo is fully unveiling the Wii U and well a hardware unveiling or showcasing always trumps a revealing of new software. Also if MS announce the next xbox, well then MS will 'own' E3

To answer the article title.

No.. they are not set to own E3.

no new generation console from MS or Sony equals not owning E3.
wolokowoh  +   869d ago
If Nintendo does not have more than one of the following: Metroid, Zelda, Smash Bros., or 3D Mario(Mario 64/Mario Galaxy style) gameplay on 3DS and/or Wii U, then Sony pretty much has it wrapped from previous announcements alone. Microsoft may have something but the past couple of years have had no real surprises and too much focus on casual instead of hardcore franchises. The least they could do is make a new Killer Instinct/Rare title and promote their XBLA lineup which compromised most of their good exclusives last year.
TheLastGuardian  +   868d ago
If they spend the majority of their press conference showing off first party titles for PS3 and Vita, Sony will most definitely win E3 2012.
mafiahajeri  +   868d ago

ElementX  +   869d ago
I think it's amusing that people actually care who "owns" or "wins" a conference.
Snookies12  +   869d ago
I agree it's stupid to say who "won" E3. Though you have to admit, sometimes companies fall short on what should be a big event, while others bring a lot more to the table. Sometimes all of them suck, sometimes all of them are great.
Highlife  +   869d ago
I don't care who wins. But I think you can lose and look bad. Nintendo a couple of years ago was just awful with that Nintendo music band up on stage. That year you could say they lost.

E3 is a hallmark for educating us on the future, however it's the same song for Q1-4 conferences. Nobody should expect somebody to aim for domination. It's just what ends up happening I guess.

It's good for the consumer, its such a big thing and the big 3 are well aware a lot of eyes will be on them, if they can "win" then they have won a lot of people over.

Yes i find it stupid that people argue over it but it makes the big 3 fight and release some big guns.
Godmars290  +   869d ago
Its likely Sony's to lose, but then given we're talking more about a PR contest, Nintendo or MS could easily pull off a style over substance move. Its what MS did with Kinect afterall.

They have a potentially VERY impressive line-up.

But it will be extremely hard to upstage a new console with never-before-seen games. New consoles are always the most exciting things possible.
BitbyDeath  +   869d ago
Pretty much this, unless Sony show off the PS4 I doubt they'd be able to beat Nintendo.
Kingdom Come  +   869d ago
Not necessarily, look at the progression in technological achievement in videogames in the past year alone, I don't think we NEED a new Playstation as much as we need a new Nintendo console, let's be honest, from what we've seen the WiiU is just catching up to the 360 and PS3...
VsAssassin  +   869d ago
I have nothing against Nintendo or the Wii U for that matter, but I doubt an HD console from Nintendo will upstage the PS3 or the 360 since these two consoles were HD to begin with. And I believe Nintendo is about 4-5 years a bit too late in the HD era. However, the Wii U is most welcome. I for one can't wait to see Zelda and Mario in HD.

By the time Nintendo is lavishing in its HD glory, the PS3 and the 360 have already released new consoles.

About E3: Yeah, I want Sony to announce a new IP or two that we haven't heard of yet. Like a complete shocker, perhaps? They don't have to win anything, they just have to appreciate the fans by giving us what we want, which, by the way, they've been doing for years now!

It's not just about the games when it comes to a new console announcement, it's about what the OS can acheive. It's about what exciting new features it may hold (like how it was shown that the tablet can scan items into a game and bring them to life).

It's about the tech.

Games cannot compete against that no matter how good IMO

Completely agree.

Neither Sony nor Microsoft have my interest at E3. Nintendo does have my interest because of a few things, namely a new console, new IP, new features, new content.

If Sony/MS have no new consoles to show off then they'll just be showing us the same things we've already known about it, with maybe a few surprises.

You cant deny Sony has won the past E3's because they come out with games for there consoles. In the end it all comes down to is games. PS3 will have so much to present and new GOW andSony Smash Bros footage. The stuff they already revealed was just the tease.
Sony has the potential franchises too like continuing:
Infamous series
Syphon Filter
Zone of the Enders
Uncharted

The potential of Left 4 Dead collection now that Valve and Sony work good together now.

You would really want a fourth Uncharted to be announced for this gen? I feel as though Uncharted would benefit from the release of a new console as the leap from the original to the second majorly outweighed the leap from the second to the third.
TenkoTAiLS  +   869d ago
I honestly don't think there will be an Uncharted 4, they tied up the third game rather nicely. If Naughty Dog do buck their trend i will be rather surprised.

If the previous two top selling series that they have made are anything to go by they will pass Uncharted on to some other studio and concentrate on that new game of theirs, that will no doubt end up a trilogy.

Perhaps the studio that did the Vita Uncharted will take the helm for any following games?

majiebeast  +   869d ago
Sony is smart with the unveiling of the last of us,gow accension and PASBR and ofcourse the new exclusive being shown may second. Winning E3 is useless when you have to share the spotlight now they got all the hype on their games instead of getting upstaged by a bigger announcement.

I dont think sony is gonna come empty handed to E3, but i think there will be allot of psvita news especially from the third party developers. Aslong as i see more PASBR character reveals including third party one's,the lastofus gameplay and third/first party vita games ill be happy.
VsAssassin  +   869d ago
^This. Sony's marketing researchers are doing their jobs right. They now know that E3 isn't the only place for bigger announcements. Yeah, if you've been slapping the competition with new games left and right, who needs relying on just one gaming convention? The answer is obvious: Sony is on a roll; this gives them subtle prerogative to go ahead and announce games whenever they want.
mt  +   869d ago
dude I don't care if they own it or not. last two weeks they announce two great titles for ps3 that is ownage for me. I am guessing sony announcing its titles now because 80% of E3 will be about PS Vita.

Sony has a lot to prove this year. The focus should be on PS Vita instead of PS3. The Vita is a "new" device that is selling really really bad. The PS3 is an "old" device with the successor on its way.

I'm not going to disagree with you. You are bang on about how the public acts sometimes. But at the same time isn't the opinion and general consensus of the largest portion of the public that pays attention to E3 the decider?

You don't lose a public opinion poll and strut into the presidents office and demand his seat because you think you are better despite what the majority of the public voted.

Just sayin..
mr_badhand  +   869d ago
Really?

So where were you when everyone was disappointed that MS had nothing to show for except Kinect games? Where every article ran wild about how MS left the core? hell how every poster on n4g still runs wild about how MS left the core?

Or where were you when everyone was confused when Nintendo unveiled the WiiU? Everyone thought it was a controller only. Remember all those articles about how the crowd was confused? Of course you don't? I bet you also don't remember the posters also being confused and debating if it was an add on or a new system.

How about when sony unveiled the Vita? And everyone got excited and when sony announced the price it got a thunderous applause. Don't remember that either eh? How about the articles about the great price of the vita and the power in your hands? I know you remember all the positive posts here on n4g right?

But no, lets pretend sony is the red headed step child and despite giving sight to the blind and making the cripples walk they are constantly being downplayed and ignored. Am I getting it right so far?

As you know and what I always like to say:

The media is biased against Sony.
MySwordIsHeavenly  +   868d ago
I was there. I thought MS's press conference last year was pretty good. Nintendo's unveiling of the Wii U was terrible, but most people still considered Nintendo the victor, for some reason...

Guess some people just don't like fun.
mr_badhand  +   868d ago
So last years E3 isn't exactly how you stated in your last post. Yet you dramatized this whole act of the public dogging out Sony.

And who are the public exactly who declared Nintendo the winner? One, maybe two sites and a few posters?
Not exactly the majority of the public im assuming.

The point is and this goes for jessupj, stop playing the role like Sony is this beat up puppy that still somes back for love after being slapped. Its tiresome and ridiculous. There is no media plot to destroy sony.

In fact sony owns most of the media. Sony music, sony movies, sony television. Hell they even make the products they film for. Sony IS practically the media.

Waitaminute!!!

could it be...sony is definitely biased against sony!
since sony games is the only one making a profit that means the other sony departments have teamed up to take them down. That's why Kaz is trying to unify them. Like old school China!

Yes!!! Conspiracy solved!
MySwordIsHeavenly  +   868d ago
Sony doesn't own the media. They own many films, tv shows, etc. However, the media is owned by companies like Viacom (CBS), Disney, and Time Warner.

Sony IS the beat up puppy though.

Last year's E3 actually was how I stated. Most sites declared Nintendo the winner. G4 declared them the winner after the show. Game Informer also claimed they won, oddly enough.

I feel like you hate Sony here. I like Microsoft, Nintendo, and Sony...because they all have given me incredible experiences.

That being said, I am aware that Sony receives a large portion (majority?) of hate articles.

People love to see the top dog fail.

Dlacy13g  +   869d ago
Sorry but this show is Nintendo's to win or lose. The WiiU will dominate all discussion but the question will be whether its glowing discussion or underwhelmed discussion. We will learn what is truly under the hood on the WiiU and that will either excite or disappoint the hardcore. Short of new hardware announcements there isnt much Sony or MS can do to derail Nintendo from being in the spotlight.
Dlacy13g  +   869d ago
Love the stealth disagree's... put up or shut up. You disagree, that is fine...why not back up your disagree? I am sorry but I just don't think Sony making game announcements will be enough to derail the hype that will be surrounding the WiiU this E3. Atleast PS3 wise.... I will say there will be lots of buzz when they finally show off Call of Duty on Vita..but again, new hardware is next to impossible to derail unless its not that exciting.
DragonKnight  +   869d ago
I won't stealth disagree. Here is why I disagree. The WiiU is an HD upgrade to a casual gaming system. Everything for the WiiU can be considered rehashes of Wii games and you wouldn't be far off. We know the WiiU is coming so there is no surprise involved, meaning the discussion you speak of will be very tempered. The only thing to know about the WiiU is final specs, pricing, and launch games. But like I said, it's an upgrade to a casual gaming system. That means the core audience will be more likely to be excited for things geared towards them.

It's very likely that PSVita news will upstage WiiU news. The WiiU isn't a "new" console anymore. It may not be released yet, but everyone already knows about it and are anticipating it at E3. Therefore, the show is not Nintendo's to win or lose as they currently have no surprises we know of to showcase.
Ezio-Auditore00  +   869d ago
Why would you classify that thing a new hardware. Nintendo are 5 years delayed look when they decide to make a console that supports hd.
Hicken  +   869d ago
First and foremost, what makes you think anyone is obligated to tell you why they disagree with you? Do you respond to every comment you agree or disagree with? And for people with a limited number of bubbles, hitting agree or disagree is less of a challenge than deciding what to actually comment on.

Second, the Wii U has been announced for too long to generate the type of buzz you're thinking of. People will be curious, yes, but they won't be nearly as hyped up as last year because, well, they've had all this time to be excited. Hardcore gamers will have a more mild interest now than before, as they'll still want to know what type of core experiences it offers, but there will be other announcements vying for their attention.

Such as the potential for Sony or Microsoft to reveal their new systems. Or gameplay for all these titles Sony's releasing, release dates for long-awaited titles like The Last Guardian, and so on.
Dlacy13g  +   868d ago
@Hicken ....ah yes my friend, we meet again. I certainly don't think anyone is "obligated" to respond...but certainly I want them to if they do disagree. I merely want to spark conversation.

As for the WiiU, many of you feel as stated here that the WiiU is no longer new hardware and that because it was announced back at E3 last year that it can't generate hype. My question back to you is did you feel the same way when the PS3 was announced a year ahead of time prior to launch? Did the PS3 pack any less buzz the following year when it was set to actually launch? Couple that with the fact that we still don't know much about the WiiU beyond the controller and there is certainly room for a lot of hype and buzz for Nintendo.

@DragonKnight... You are claiming the WiiU isn't new hardware and just an HD upgrade ...how do you know that? What facts do you know that the rest of the media world doesn't at this point? The point I am getting at is...again...there is still a bit of mystery around the WiiU.

As for the Vita upstaging the WiiU. I suppose it could happen but I am not gonna hold my breath on that one. We know 100% what is inside the Vita... about the only thing that could/would really upstage Nintendo would be a price drop to match the 3DS and I don't see that coming for the Vita this early.

Buzz is absolutely going to be focused on Nintendo this E3 as the media and the world will finally get the full scope of what the WiiU actually is and packs under the hood. I am not trying to say that Nintendo is assured the best in show at E3...they could easily fall on their faces and allow Sony to steal the show if the WiiU really is nothing more than an HD upgrade... but in my opinion this E3 is Nintendo's to win or lose for best of E3 regardless of the competition at this point with what we know.
DragonKnight  +   868d ago
It isn't new. Nintendo haven't been shy about what the WiiU will be focusing on. They've only been shy about the final specs. The reason behind that is pretty obvious. They don't want people expecting a lot. But most developers who have already come out and spoken about the WiiU have a mixed reaction to it. Half say it's as powerful as the PS3, half say it's almost as powerful as it.

Next to Apple, Nintendo are BRILLIANT at marketing marginal upgrades as the newest and best possible innovations around. It's quite obvious that the WiiU's focus is on the controller, just like the Wii. There is no REAL mystery surrounding the WiiU except to those who haven't been paying any attention. The only mysteries are the complete final specs (which Nintendo is really downplaying by hiding them so much), the price, and launch games. But there is no surprise wow factor involved since the WiiU has already been announced. It's not like this E3 will be the first time we hear about it. So no, buzz is not going to be around Nintendo in the manner you perceive. Anyone who cares about gaming enough to really be anticipating E3 because it's the biggest gaming convention already know enough about the WiiU to have a very tempered response to news about it.

The Vita doesn't need a price cut, and it can easily steal the show with features and games. Easily. But one thing is for sure, no one is really talking about what MS is going to bring to the table, as all anyone can really hope for is the nextbox to be announced. That's not fanboyism, that's just observation. Look around and you won't see people talking about MS at E3 as much as you will Nintendo or Sony.

No one has any facts but they're already dissing the Wii U. I, for one, am very excited about it and I really want to see what the software looks like in real-time. I can't believe the people on N4G are being so dense about this.

New console = exciting.

sony have announced more than enough games to see the ps3 sell and keep gamers interested well into 2014. I will not get my hopes up because I think this yrs E3 will be vita related with last of us and maybe 2 suprises but am hoping for a ingame trailer with a ps4 logo at the end of the trailer

in my opinion Sony have won every year since PS3 got released. showing off exclusives after exclusives, PSVITA, improvements to PSN and great PS3 updates like the TV section, where as other companies play fake videos of elephants trying to introduce a camera...

They cut the alphabet at S they've got E3 down to a T. ;0

Who knows, if sony and Microsoft decide to announce the new consoles. It will be a tie unless they give us some info on them.

They may win E3, but they'll lose a generation.

They've already lost this generation.

How did they lose this generation?

Explain.

I don't see how they lost. They have a highly competitive console with remarkable exclusives. Not sure why anyone would say that.

Too many casual gamers bossting the sales of the Wii and 360.

Not enough Core gamers

I hope they will announce more cross platform ps3/pc games.
