Sony had a miraculous E3 last year but can they repeat?
I can see Sony doing well this year but I don't think Crash will be coming.
um could you like not jinx it pls? Crash is coming and the graphics will be like ratchet and clank.....hnnnnnnng!
i aslo hope for Crash-back-to-Sony reveal (differently let it die i dont want an Activision game) ..also why everybody keeps asking for agent ? has anyone ever seen any gameplay or smthing that would make him excited --->NO so stfup with this damn game ,,never was meant to appear and probably was transformed to GTA5
OMG Ratchet and Clank and Crash! The two most overrated relic exclusives ever made! There's a reason why they stopped making sequels. It's a shame, the industry caves into a few nostalgia fans when they could have done something new and fresh. You think the industry would STOP buying graphic artists and hire a writer worth 2 squirts of piss once and awhile. Just playing the new Ratchet game made me feel sick. Yea, graphics are super cool pretty, but the linear carrot on the stick game play, the characters designed for 8 year olds, "Even though the nostalgia audience is mostly in their later 20's, the tiny set piece environments, the boring as all hell half collector half shooter game play, the forgettable story, forgettable characters, forgettable game that feels painfully out of time... The remake sold for 2 reasons. Nostalgia, and desperation. People had to dust off their PS4 for some reason other than youtube/twitch. Jeez, if people are going to remake games, remake something WORTH remaking. Grandia 1, MGS1/2, Legend of Dragoon, Silent Hill 1/2, Final Fantasy Tactics/X, Shadow of the Colossus, Persona 4, COD World at War, Castlevania SOTN, Resident Evil 3 and SO many more... But nope... Ratchet and Crash... WOOOOW MAN CRASH WAS HUUUU- Yea, I hear a lot of people say that online, "Actually, only on N4G, the land of ponies". Never heard it from a gamer in real life though at conventions or with clans over the last 16 years on TS/Vent.
I don't understand the Crash Bandicoot hype and I played them when I was younger Now Horizon I'm excited to see more of that
Back in the day you had people trying to rationalize that Crash was better than Super Mario 64. I can understand feeing nostalgic for things like the music, but nothing about Crash Bandicoot as a character was ever great. I guess in the third one he had a leather jacket and some cool shades, you know...late 90's garbage.
@sam I don't either. In all honesty I think a lot of the "hype" is really nostalgia for Crash, and Jak & Daxter. I tried playing a lot of Naughty Dog's games with a very patient and open mind, but was really bored with all them except The Last Of Us. Horizon looks to be the Killer App for PS4. It'll be interesting to see Guerilla Games first attempt at a non FPS game.
@Ravenor It's a platformer, what did you expect? Deep character development?
I would be 100 times more excited for a new or rebooted Spyro the Dragon BY Insomniac Games only or GTFO. The same way if Crash is announced, ND or GTFO. @Bansai And the funny thing is Crash of 1996 still has just as much character development as THE LAST TWENTY YEARS of Mario, even with all the milking and spinoffs they constantly beat him around the head with.
That's not the point, nothing about Crash was above average or special. It wasn't funny then, it isn't funny now and it will never be funny. Crash is a relic of the 90's and there is a reason no one cared about the games post ND, and it's not because ND wasn't on the project so don't even start.
If Crash does come, it will probably be the same sort of deal that Sony has with Disney Marvel for the use of Spider-Man. I'm really surprised Sony and company haven't brought back Syphon Filter, Parasite Eve, Dino Crisis, Medieval, Patapon, Spyro, Sly Cooper, Tenchu, Wipeout, and Twisted Metal. It would be great to see Original PS4 games (non-remasters) from those series.
Activision owns Spyro, Square owns Parasite Eve and Third Birthday stank, They did bring back Sly Cooper and no one bought it, Tenchu has come back multiple times and no one cares, Twisted Metal had David Jaffe on the project and it still didn't sell, Sony Closed Studio Liverpool so who would care about a new wipeout? Dino Crisis was kind of bad, DC2 was better and DC3 was horrifically bad, do you really trust Capcom to not shit the bed after SFV? I don't. Do you not remember how bad the later Syphon Filters were? Hell by the third game in 2001 it had already started to lapse into absurdity. It's MediEvil and Guerilla Cambridge is working on RIGS. Seriously guys the nostalgia wankery is getting ridiculous. Move the f on.
They need to reboot or remake Parasite Eve. That thing would be sick!!!!!
Sony brought back Sly Cooper with Sly Cooper Thieves in Time for PS3/PS VITA in 2013, Wipeout with Wipeout 2048 on the VITA in 2011 and Twisted Metal in 2012 for PS3. Both titles available in PS Now if you missed them.
Spiderman will be there, but it's not being developed by Suckerpunch.
Is that a prediction or a leak? I was really looking forward to the potential of an SP Spidey game but I'll take anything I can get, as long as it is a solid quality effort. Spider-Man needs his own Arkham Asylum level game. Others have come close, but they don't feel as much like a love letter to the fans, crammed with Easter eggs & interesting character designs. I think SP would be a perfect fit, but as long as they've got some quality planned for Spidey & SP's next game, I'll deal
@naruga that theory that Agent morphed into another game is interesting but if it did, i'm pretty sure LA Noir was the result of that and not gta v
LA noir happendd before the agent teaser
They most certainly can
After last year anything is possible so why not bring back Agent into the mix lol can't wait to see what drops Monday
I totally forgot about Agent! Yeah that would definitely get people's attention! Good call Thatguy-310!
After last year's E3 with them showing Final Fantasy 7, The Last Guardian, and Shenmue 3, I honestly don't know what they could show this year that would make fans lose their minds. Crash MABYE but I don't see that as being a reality. They could tease The Last of Us 2 but that's all it would be. What exactly could they show that would make people lose their shit?
Silent Hills could be there. That would be pretty amazing.
In addition to the exclusives we all expect I think RDR will 'make people lose their shit'
I think last year catered to the worldwide audience with those announcements, but the prospects of Dead Don't Ride, GoW4 & Spidey could be pretty huge for western audiences. Honestly I've never been big into FF games so this year has even more potential for my personal tastes...there's gonna be some great stuff on offer for sure even if it doesn't reach the hype levels of last year for everyone.
Sony is going to have the best conference! :)
As usual. They win every generation in terms of exclusives. So nothing new.
Well considering they are just going to be showing the same games they showed last year (and the year before that) I'm sure the die hard fan boys will eat it all up
Oh the saltiness in your comment lol Buy a Xbox one and enjoy it. No one is forcing you to watch e3 sony conference or play games on ps4
Isn't that what Xbox does? Many of them still haven't released and will be shown by Microsoft again.
Xbox has no games their fanboys are forced to hyprocitically praise games like QB and cuphead, which they would normally bash if it were other console's exclusives it's hilarious to see them 'excited' for those games, yet they bash similar games on other console lmao
You mean like how people are "excited" for The Last Guardian, and haven't even heard of or played Ico and Shadow Of The Colossus? Same thing for No Man's Sky. If Quantum Break was on PS4, I would have still played it and liked it just as much. Then again, I own all of this current gens consoles and don't have to worry about exclusives other than Xbox games coming out and not being able to play them with some of my other friends because they don't care for Xbox's current exclusives aside from Dead Rising 3, Sunset, and Scalebound. I am excited for [PS4] Yakuza 0 (I thought 5 was super boring and didn't like the story compared to 1, 2, 3 and 4) Horizon Zero Dawn Persona 5 Final Fantasy 7 Remake God Of War 4 Sony Press Conference [X1] Scalebound Sea of Thieves Halo Wars 2 (Best Console RTS next to X-COM) Gears of War 4 Dead Rising 4 (Rumored) MS Press Conference [Nintendo] Hopefully a NX Announcement Hopefully a Metroid Prime announcment for NX SMT IV : Apocalypse [EA] Battlefield 1 Untitled Star Wars Project with Jade Raymond and Amy Hennig Next Need For Speed EA Press Conference [UBISOFT] Hopefully a Splinter Cell Sequel Ghost Recon Wildlands Ubisoft press conference [Square] Deus Ex Final Fantasy XV Kingdom Hearts III Final Fantasy XII Remaster Square Press Conference [Capcom] Resident Evil 2 Remake Onimusha Remastered (Rumored) Resident Evil 7 Capcoms other announcments
Xbox has no games? Bro tell me what games you play on the PS4? Other than UC4 whats a must get on PS4?
Leave crash on PS1... honestly, playing crash in Uncharted 4 as exciting for 5 mins...
Watch out guys, they might delay their E3 conference. JK JK
well, sony does have a reputation of being late to conferences lol
Like Scalebound you mean? Or Quantum Break since 2013 reveal?
@Kratos Like Driveclub?
Best way, showing more of what was announced last year! Last years was bitter sweet, Shenmue 3 - kick starter. FF7 - multi-part/episodic. Show us some proper gameplay footage of both, if that looks good I don't even need Sony to sell me anything else!
This list can't compare to last years imo, but i'm a sucker for japanese games so.. Edit: That said, red dead 3 and crash would be very nice :)
E3 2016 realistic expectations 1st and 3rd party: Detroit Dead don't ride God of war( I don't think it will be called 4) Spiderman fromsucker punch Call of duty game play and bundle Destiny new expansion Ff15 exclusive marketing and bundle Talk about new hardware Show some indies Talk about vr for 10 to 15 minutes R* will have sony announce their next game. Just like sony announced gta 5 for them on next Gen They will either announce via a teaser bloodborne 2 or the last of us 2. Amd here is why ND have 2 teams 2ND of which has been free since finishing the last of us. That was a while ago so the last of us 2 teaser with 2017 release window Sony Japan is a huge studio so expect bloodborne 2 with partnership from software 2 wild guesses: We will hear something about agent as it was never cancelled. Take two ceo have said over and over its in development Sony will buy back crash ip. Activision and sony have a great partnership so I think it's a safe assumption I don't think we will see dreams or horizon until Paris game show
Oh man, if they announce Bloodborne 2 that would be enough for me.
I agree with you. I think Crash will happen and some release dates given as well for The Last Guardian and Gravity Rush 2.
OK I wish your right but that sounds like wild expectations. At least leave ND TLOU2 and Bloodborne 2 (if they exist) for next E3. I'd be happy with half of your list and I'm sure we ll see people say they are disappointed because they expect everything they wish to be shown.
could simply be a teaser for bloodborne. (my imagination is running wild with this) enter black screen, fade in foot steps to a unique almost Trance like beat with bells as their cymbals, and faint beast roars as the bass. the distinct sound of the saw clever, followed by a face appearing, sounding like Gerhman "a hunter must always hunt" ending with a drop of blood. Whole thing could litterly be a 10 second trailer and it would blow loads and kleenex would have a huge sales boost because of it there is definitely some strong theories we are getting a second one. why else would they have a pre-order for "the hunter must hunt" Lythograph on the playstation gear store releasing July 1st
ND did utilize 2 teams at the end of last gen, but Neil & Bruce said they went back to 1 to get UC4 out....that said, Neil has already mentioned how fond he is of misdirection, so there is always a chance...I think if not a teaser for TLOU2, we will get one for the Uc4 dlc. Either way, I ain't mad at your list in the slightest....if even half of that stuff is shown I'll be fully satisfied. I have a feeling Sony's gonna rule E3 yet again this year...
Crash Bandicoot will definitely help
I'm looking forward to E3, but I feel too much has been revealed too soon (E3 2015 games still haven't released) / leaked / rumored for the these big 3 that this is just going to be a decent year for games unless the new hardware truly impresses, or we get trailers for games that aren't likely to release until 2018. If all the Xbox rumors are true (4 new hardware, games known & leaked, 3rd party deals) then we pretty much over an hour of their conference material already. Nintendo is lost in Nintendoland and even though I'm extremely excited about Zelda they should at least mention the NX, show tech demos, or trailers from 3rd party games coming to the platform. Sony is going to have to give updates on games from E3 2015 - PSX 2015, focus on PSVR, focus on 3rd party support (Activision, Square, etc...), and detail PS4 Neo (if it's real) and that alone is going to be well over an hour of their conference which leaves less time for new reveals. I'm sure we'll see new games, it's just that there's less and less time for there to be a big splash at these conferences if all the news / rumors pan out to be true, and we're likely to get new info spread over the year at Gamescom / TGS / PGW (if Sony goes here again) / and PSX and other private events.
Sonys conference typically runs a little over 2 full hours, so if that stuff you mentioned takes up an hour then they will still have plenty of time for great new game reveals. I honestly think Sony will have the highest frequency of surprises just because we haven't seen any leaks this week from them, just rumors that have floated around for months now. MS has had a fair few leaks though, considering their conference only runs 90 minutes, I do agree that we may not see much we don't already know about...footage from announced games, third party deals, info on the games leaked & new OS functionality & new hardware. It'll be a lean, solid fun MS showing but not much in the way of surprises. Part of me kinda wishes that these companies would scale back to only 2 major shows a year, so we can have nothing but back to back surprises as opposed to a varying handful for each one.
I don't think they can, that doesn't mean i think they will put on a poor show, it's just that last year was so good, how could they possibly top it ? If they announced a new Crash Bandicoot and Half Life 3 it would be massive, but for me, it still wouldn't top last years. FF7 remake, Shenmue 3, The Last Guardian amongst other great things on show, it can't be beaten.
Instead of Dreams 2.0. Let's get Reality 1.0. Announce games coming out in the next year and leave the hype behind for games 2+ years away. This goes for all major platforms. It's like seeing a movie preview 2 years before release. Builds major hype for a few months to get fanboys bickering and then.......crickets.
Every game coming out soon you already know about. So if they didn't announce games for the future, then E3 wouldn't be anywhere near as exciting. It would just be full of things we already know about.
wow didn't realize the disdain crash in here, you guys don't think a crash in 2016-2017 would be fun?
Media Molecule will be probably announcing a release date for Dreams 1.0. Why even bring up the sequel?
Less JRPG's and hopefully some good exclusive MP game, as lets be honest they don't have any at all.
Let me see: We have Spidy Rockstar exlusive Dead dont ride Crash Horizon Shenmue 3 FF7 GOW4 Yeah i think Sony will kill it Again this E3.
Agent would be an amazing announcement. I have a feeling we might see the return of Crash Bandicoot this year.
