Gran Turismo 7 seems to now be called Gran Turismo Sport and now I fully expect to see it at E3.


Amar is legit, read the rest of the thread.

-Foxtrot3059d ago


Seems a bit strange to call it that

GT7 would do

Transistor3059d ago

It might just be Motorsport. It could be a prologue. I have no clue, but I know we have a name at least.

AngelicIceDiamond3059d ago

As much as I don't like EA I'm looking forward to their games than any other third party publisher actually. Sorry I'm just super stoked for Mirrors Edge 2, Mass Effect 4.

Yes I'm more stoked than Bethesda so sue me. And lets be realistic its gonna be Dishonored 2 and they're gonna tease Fall Out 4 at the end. I just know that's how it will play out. Not Discrediting dishonored 2 in anyway but Fall Out 4 is the game to watch for but we never get what we want it seems.

Activision will be mostly at Sony's conference with COD and Destiny. I have very little interest in either of those games. Unless they bring Tony Hawk at the show then I'll at least watch that. Activision needs to improve on their AAA offerings the most uninspiring publisher thus far.

Ubisoft will show off more Rainbow 6 which is a plus. Show off more of The Division for the third time. We know how it plays just give us a release date already. AC Syndicate looks boring uninspriring and nothing going for it. Not hype for that game one bit they can keep it. Hopefully they show off a brand new Ip or a returning franchise at the end of their conference like they usually do.

That's how I see it.

Bioware was so much better when they were 2nd party and I h8 ms.

wonderfulmonkeyman3059d ago

My biggest wish is to hear a release date for XCX within the next two or three months.
They've been working on those translations full time since the japanese version released, if not a little longer.
They GOTTA be close to done by now...

Also looking forward to Platinum's announcement. They did a tweet that could be construed as just a mere joke, or as a hint at their participation in a Metroid game. (Honestly, I'd trust them with it more than I would Team Ninja again...)
I'd be blown away by Bayonetta 3 on Wii U, though.

showtimefolks3059d ago

Gt7 or whatever it's called is given and will be released in December 2015. Not my words but words of the biggest retailer gaming chain owner in pakistan

Uncharted trilogy book it
god of war 3 remastered at e3 book it

A new game from R* very likely or maybe we will find out more about gta 5 single player dlc

Very excited about mass effect 4, nothing else from EA

nothing excites me about UBI they are the new EA of yearly releases. And they have lost all my respect and yeh yeh I don't matter but I use to spend money on ubi games now I don't. They are idiots abd nothing but full of over hyping marketing machine of making very generic games

Fallout 4 BOOK IT a release date in 2015 very very likely. Yes they have been working on it since skyrim.



Sony will hold back on announcing a lot of stuff for their own show later on in 2015. Playstation experience

Mgs 5 will be shown possibly new demo

Ms will show

Forza 6
Halo 5
tomb raider
crackdown 3 not sure about game play demo

OtakuDJK1NG-Rory3059d ago

I am watching all of them.

But for Nintendo I need that Xenoblade Chronicles X summer release date, Fatal Frame V, Devil's Third, Star Fox, Yoshi's Woolly World, Mario Maker and SMTxFE!

Give my Pokken Fighter, PunchOut!! and F-Zero and I be satified or a Pokemon HD 3D Battling Sim like Stadium and a more improved online than Battle Revolution.

For Square Enix just Bravely Second, Just Cause 3 and at least something for FFXV to convince me that this game will be great.

For Sony lets see. Maybe a new Sly Cooper game would make me happy and as far third party goes Persona 5 and J-Star Victory VS+. Oh and if Sony announce PS Allstars 2 for PS4 and Vita then yeah I guess I get that. I supported the game from reveal day til E3 2013 came. The replay value wasn't there but a sequel can improve that right.......

EA, Ubisoft and Activision MEH

For Microsoft a Banjo Kazooie game in the vain of the classics N64 gameplay not Nuts & Bolts crap. Oh and the gameplay of Scalebound must impress me and Tomb Raider.

Gears of War 4 and Halo 5 I am already looking forward to since I have all Gears on X360 and Halo 1 Anniversary, Halo Reach, 3 and 4 on X360. So If Microsoft impress they scored a Xbox One sold.

Bethseda never really was interested in their games that can change though.

So overall Nintendo and Microsoft to me will be the most exciting.

It's a good thing Microsoft now says its "adorably all digital" future plans are outdated

They suggested a potentially different path to Sony, and poorer game preservation as a result.

Honestly, I don't mind a digital-only device - I do play mostly on PC after all. I just think that one paired with Microsoft's way of handling expandable storage is a bad idea.

Like, just imagine how expensive that would get with 1TB costing around 150 USD and the current sizes for AAA titles.

FinalFantasyFanatic6h ago

Agreed, it wouldn't be so bad if you could drop any drive into it, personally I'd like some games to still have collectors editions (I miss that about PC gaming, you don't really see physical collector's editions any more).

Cacabunga3h ago

If all goes digital, you’ll pay for everything the price they want you to, and you won’t own anything!!!
I have over 700 games as freebies from PS+ since it was first revealed on PS3.. i just never bother to look in it i just feel like they aren’t there.. would have loved to have them physical

Vits2h ago


Yes, the issue here is price.
As for collector editions, honestly, I have never been that much about collecting them. But I do miss the time when physical games had actually physical things other than the cartridge/disk.


That is another issue with consoles, as they all work as walled gardens the prices are dictated by a single entity. So the issue is not exactly that games are digital but rather the stronghold that the manufacturers have on the sales channels.

Now if you are blind to online content simply because it's digital. Then that is more of "you" issue and likely one that will give you a lot of headaches in the coming decade.

northpaws1h ago

Not that I agree on all digital future, but it is not like you are saving any spaces for buying physical disc, you still need the exact same space to install the game.

Vits1h ago

Oh definitely. But at least in my case, I like to have all my library backed up. Physical media does that by default but on a console like the Xbox Series you have a real issue if you plan on doing that with digital games.

aaronaton8h ago

I honestly don't understand when ppl buy digitally over physical on launch when the game is the same price.
With physical, you actually own the game, its not a prolonged rent. Plus with single player games costing over £60, its nice to know you can recuperate costs after completion.
Ppl that buy all digital are either lazy or not very savvy when it comes to expenses.

ocelot078h ago

Many positives for digital. So for example EA Sports FC 24 is a game I put 200 plus hours in and will be playing off and on for a year until 25 releases. For me it was actually cheaper getting digital. Cheapest I could find on disc was £62. On PSN it was £65 I went to shopto.net and bought £65 worth of PSN credit for £58.

Another reason I buy a fair few games digitally is game sharing with my partner. She likes call of duty I also enjoy cod but get board of it right away. Again it's another £65 game that costs us £58. Since we are going half each it actually cost us £29 each. That's much better than paying £60+ for a disc copy each.

The likes of say Spiderman and god of war if it's single player only. I'll get on disc. As once I'm fully done with it. If my partner wants to play it she can. If not I can sell and get some money back for the next game.

andy857h ago

People need to use thegamecollection more. They give £10 extra reward points on new games and are generally the cheapest place anyway. EA 24 is £59 so as I always use their site it's basically £10 extra off and with my cashback it would have been £45 for me. AC Mirage only cost me £25 from there.

EvertonFC6h ago

Exactly, i played and completed spiderman over a weekend, bought for £60 and sold at CEX for £48. ONLY cost me £12 for a AAA title. I will buy MP games but 20 hour SP games 1 weekend and cash back.

Vits8h ago

It depends a lot on what game and what region you were in. For example, where I live we don't really get all the games officially launched for PS5 in physical format. This means that we often have to buy the American or European versions of the game, but that comes with an annoyance because of how PSN deals with DLC. Another issue is the market up that those games that don't get an official release end up getting on physical.
For example, Koei Tecmo stuff tends to be between 10% to 20% more expensive on physical and if you buy it from an internet store (Amazon and the likes) you normally don't know which version of the game you will get.

That also basically murders the second-hand market. Because again as people pay extra for the physical version, they have a tendency to charge extra as well. So it's not uncommon to find second-hand games at a similar price as the digital versions, do they sell? Probably not, but that doesn't stop people from listing them.

However, there are obvious exceptions. Sony-published titles have a tendency to be a bit cheaper in physical media during launch. Spider-Man 2 for example can be pre-ordered on Amazon right now for 15% less than the digital version. So in summary it's all a big fat "it depends".

Game share, if you have someone to share with it can save a chunk of money.

Vengeance11387h ago

Maybe open your eyes and look at the full picture instead of judging?
Physical is exactly that, physical. It takes up physical space, room. I've been collecting physical from PS1, PS2 to PS3 and with hundreds of games I simply don't have the physical space left to add more shelves nor would it make sense to being in an apartment.
Digital just makes alot more sense, buy 100s or thousands of games, have it take up 0 extra space physically. Couldn't care less about "owning" the game, I just want to play it and complete it.

FinalFantasyFanatic5h ago(Edited 5h ago)

I already put my PS1 collection in a tub and sealed it away for now, I was thinking of doing the same with some of my older consoles I don't regularly play (e.g. the PS2, Wii, N64, ect...).

Vengeance11385h ago(Edited 5h ago)

Yeah I have all my PS1, PS2 and PS3 collection in a 2 huge tubs sealed away. Shelf space is for physical movies, as they are far superior to any modern streaming platform.

I had all my music collection stolen (£1000s) when I worked overseas but it was all in like 6 big boxes. I ended up just downloading all my music collection off a torrent and put it all in about 3 memory sticks.
Best thing that ever happened my music collection getting stolen 🤣😂

sci4me6h ago

Since i split that cost by 2 (sharing with son) your premiss is wrong. I stand to save money instead of bying two copies.

Shane Kim6h ago

Nowadays, you dont own physical either. They can just write a piece of code and your disc reader won't read said game.

TQQ5h ago

That to my knowledge has never happened and if it did they would have a class action suit waiting to happen.

Don't boogey man stuff.
