GOONL!NE: E3 2009 - How Sony Could Steal the Show

Jonathan Cullen, GOONL!NE Managing Editor: "You may remember that last year, I wrote an article just before E3 saying how Sony could really blow people away at E3.

And while we did get some things like the Video Store, Firmware 2.40 (which was only announced the day after we published that article), Resistance 2 and LittleBigPlanet, there was of course things that we didnt see coming.

We asked for Final Fantasy XIII, we got it, but not from Sony. I dont think I need to tell you what happened, I think you know what happened so I'll spare you. Also, we got God of War III which, we did ask for, just in gameplay, not CGI. And then came something which bewildered people: MAG. 256 player online battles, the first thought that came into people's heads was one word: impossible.

But moving away from 2008, the PlayStation family has gotten off to a great start particuarly PS3 and PSP. The momentum started with Killzone 2 and more on the way before E3 with inFamous, while the PSP will get a great ton load of games, particuarly the load of games announced at Destination PlayStation like Assassins Creed, LittleBigPlanet (which we asked for last year), Motorstorm: Arctic Rift and more.

But here's the thing, what can Sony do THIS year to blow people away at their E3 press conference on June 2nd?"

Biggest thing for me right now is announcing or even before E3 is by localizing Ad-Hoc party over here. I mean the Playstation 3 itself is already set game wise in virtually every department. RPGs (White Knight Chronicles, X/Cross-Edge, Demon's Souls.) Shooters (really don't need to go in depth), Action, Adventure, platforming (whichever you prefer I mean Uncharted 2 is underway and God of War 3 is either this or next year).

So really in my view I'd say Ad-Hoc is pretty much all I need right now, though I'm sure others could think of other things for PSN that probably will benefit PSN which might relate to messaging and overall maintenance.

Doh! Forgot to mention WKC in the article, same for Dissidia: FF too. *facepalm*

Bubbles for you.

Myst3569d ago

Ack forgot Dissidia to.

Aside from the games that we both seem to forgotten it was a pretty interesting article. The gist of it was pretty good and reminded me of some games that I had forgotten for a while and have been brought back to the surface (One of which was Twisted Metal 3). Overall can't wait for E3 and especially the TGS [even though is quite a ways away for now]

Can't wait to see/read the next article :D.

P.S. Forgot to mention that basically the whole world's PS1 classics store needs to catch up to Japan's...badly :(

+Bubbles a good article.

Cause personally the next game I`m buying for my 360, looks to be Alan Wake. My PS3 has been and will continue to be SUPER busy all year.

Killjoy30003568d ago

I don't think we have to worry about anything because Sony has stolen the show practically every year since PS2 was announced.

Hell, even the infamous E3 '06 press conference was good.

Wizeguy213568d ago

It pains me to point this out.. but they did not steal the show last year!

Freak of Nature3568d ago (Edited 3568d ago )

You want to steal the show....

by showing us Team Ico's PlayStation 3 game, the official release date of God of War III, Gran Turismo 5, North American release of White Knight Chronicles, new IPs

Killjoy30003568d ago

Team Ico's next game anouncement would be excellent for me, but from a media standpoint, I don't believe it will carry enough mass appeal to be a showstopper.

However, that anouncement is at the top of my list. Either God Of War 3 or GT5 for 2009 would be excellent.

I'm also looking forward to the next game from Q Games. Their team is very talented.

And last but not least, repeat history by announcing a Silver Playstation 3 priced at $299 packed in with LittleBigPlanet.

Ps_alm3k3569d ago

God i'll pay whatever for that game!!!!!!

cmrbe3568d ago

My thoughts exactly. However. MGS5 would be the greatest announcement ever for me.

blackbeld3568d ago

Sony already steal the show with they're line up!!!! Duh..

d0nT wOrrY3568d ago

Totally agree.

Sony keep stealing the shows and M$ stealing glitchy DLC & ideas. lol

MGOelite3568d ago

since sony has so many games coming they dont need to bring much to own the show,

gameplay of m.a.g

GOW3 playable in the kiosks

summat related to heavy rain

a cgi trailer for a new game

something to do with LBP/motorstom on the psp
