E3 is only one month away – What are you waiting for?

ButtonCombo writes: E3 is undeniably the most exciting videogame industry event of the year for any gamer. It’s always full of announcements, surprises and plenty of talking points. ButtonCombo will be right there on the show floor, bringing you the latest and greatest as it happens. So, with the big event only one month away, what are you most excited for? What’s that one game that you can’t wait to hear about?

Whether you’re ecstatic or indifferent, let us know. Stick around for a month of pre-E3 content, including more speculation than you can handle.

After much discussion, we have come to agree on our most anticipated E3 showings. (3DS, PC, PS Vita, PS3, Wii, Wii U, Xbox 360)

I'm looking forward to the Wii-U hardware reveal
Outside_ofthe_Box  +   962d ago
I'm looking more forward to the software demonstrations for the Wii U.

The thing I'm looking forward to the most though is GTA5.

Other things that could possibly/will happen that I really really want to see is

FFV13 gameplay and release date (I'm praying for this to happen)

Last of Us gameplay and release date

PSA Battle Royale gameplay

and.. the announcement of the next xbox and PS4...

The hardware is "just a box" as Nintendo puts it, remember?
So I'm not expecting to be too impressed from a technical standpoint.

However I do want to see the software. I hope gameplay is not so reliant on the tablet gimmick or motion and more core focused than the Wii was. And if games look close to what that Zelda tech demo did, then it shouldn't let down.

I also hope they drop that "family" bull from their presentations. Mom, pop and casual gamers don't tune in to watch E3.

Let's face it..it's ALL about next gen..Wii-U..720..PS4

I've been saying this all year, I'm hoping Nintendo is literally going to shock the world at E3 with some innovation about the hardware that makes us lose sleep until we get one.

For the 360, I'm looking forward to what may literally the greatest gaming team in history's first baby...Halo 4. I'm hoping that their E3 appearance even makes Bungie cry tears of joy in tribute.

For the PS3..All I want to see and hear is an amazing new trailer for Last Guardian followed by the words...coming this holiday.

Then I want to see the BEAST in action GTA 5..which may get a press conference the day before E3.

Lastly, will Bioshock Infinite be as incredible as we all believe it will be.

I will be very surprised if sony makes any big announcements. In fact, i think they're in a lot of trouble. japan is really struggling financially and all their big corporations are going down. Sony had a market cap of 100B dollars in the 90s. When they released the PS3 their market cap was around 40-50billion. now...they are at 18 Billion. i don't see how they could possibly afford to push a new console. They are trending down on televisions and computers.

I expect that Sony will try really hard to focus on the Vita and its capabilities, and MS will tease a system without any type of real reveal. MS, right now, has a market cap of around 250 billion dollars. The corporation's total value is about where it was in 2005 when 360 launched, but their games division is profitable. They are in prime position to sit and wait for Nintendo to reveal their specs, then announce specs within 6 months without having to worry about big competition from sony.

I just don't see how sony can pull off any real competition against microsoft at this point.

EDIT: If i were in charge of Sony's game division, i would drop the price of the console to 99 dollars and sell the shit out of it now while it still competes in this generation. then bank on the software for the next few years. enough ppl will have it (like with ps2) that they could just sit back and wait for a while. then they could interrupt the next generation with something new and start the next gen a few years early.

i doubt they would do that, but it's what my strategy would be as a company trying to hang on. they can't afford to take a loss on another generation of hardware, but if they wait a few years for the costs to come down, then jump just slightly ahead, they might have something.

...just an idea.

We need solid Next gen console specs.
Sony Exclusives PS3 and Vita.
I hope MS has something under its sleeve rather than having to rely on 10 more versions of halo and gears of war. NOT that they are bad its just that its getting abit too tired lol
cpayne93  +   962d ago
My eyes are definitely on Nintendo this year, mostly for the announcement of Pikmin 3, which I have been waiting for since the wii came out.

But other than that, I want to know what first party games are going to be coming to wii u, cause we really don't know anything at this point.

Generally I don't care about MS e3, but I'll be paying attention this time for some halo.
-Alpha  +   962d ago
In addition to everything about the Wii U, I am really excited to see gameplay for a lot of 3DS games and announcements for even more 3DS games. The 3DS library is growing bigger and bigger with quality titles, I am so excited for Luigi's Mansion 2 and Paper Mario. Nintendo has a lot of games up their sleeves for the near future

I am crossing my fingers that Sony reveals some solid VITA software, especially from third party developers (COD, GTA, FF). For PS3, we NEED to see something new for TLG. Other then that, Nintendo is who I have my eye on this year

I'm looking forward for something that really surprises me that i was not expecting, not something that i already know about it's existence.

I want to see fanboys crying and making petitions that a specific game or accessory is not on their platform of choice.

I want to see a 3ps/action/rpg/violent/sex AAA game title made by a famous developer.

can't tell if serious. Microsoft was hated by pretty much everyone for the last two E3's for just focusing on Kinect.
ATi_Elite  +   962d ago
Blah ha ha hahah

MS at E3 has been HORRIBLE the last few years!

But this year they should own it if they:

Show Windows 8
Show Next Box
Show Halo 4
have a better Windows phone
Announce Xbox 360 titles to be playable on PC

then MS would OWN E3 Hands Down!
ATi_Elite  +   962d ago
I'm looking forward to E3 being OVER!
Once E3 is out of the way I know GAMESCON is just that much closer! Gamescon is where the excitement happens for PC Gamers as E3 is all about the Consoles!!

Funny how things changed. These fools want to hate on the game that inspired UNCHARTED. Now everyone is an Uncharted fanboy and hate the game that started it all. These are the games that give birth to those titles you love TODAY and they are being hated on by these freakin 12 yr old gamers. Look at what Halo, Kill.Switch, Virtua Fighter, and Call of Duty have done for gaming. No one can say those games did not mold the direction of gaming today. Very instrumental. So I say to the DISAGREE mashers, There would be no Drake without Lara Croft..so suck on it

Look what Steve Jobs has done for portable music, cell phones, and laptops? He changed the industry completely. Sony kicked it off with the WALKMAN, why did it take Apple to create iPOD to change the world? Sony has no damn vision. Why did it take MS to see that online interactivity was our future and left Sony again, gasping for air....no vision. They focused on stats more than anything else. They didnt know that PC per Household was going to grow so fast, just like they didnt envision digital downloads were going to be upon us so soon. It's their fault for the demise of the their company.

if counting by attention in that case yes thats established already, unless ms sneak announces something but i doubt it.

If MS or Sony dont reveal the 720 and PS4 then yes the Wii U will be the center of attention.

Unless Valve come out on stage and announce Half Life 3 or a new console : )
PygmelionHunter  +   961d ago
Valve would need good first party support if they decide to release a new console, which is unfortunate because they hardly release any games nowadays...

So I guess I'm the only person who realizes Nintendo launches several new games with each new system huh???

Heck just recently the 3DS launched with a new game, Steel Diver, and has 3 great new Downloadable games: Sakura Samurai, Pushmo, and Freaky Forms.

And it may be one they had before, but it's not like we see Kid Icarus every year or even every decade for that matter.

If you truly believe Nintendo will have NOTHING new or exciting to show at E3, you're lying to yourself.
