Here's what Sony has to do to 'win' E3 2009: Show up.
GT5 gow3 uncharted 2 ico game mgs syphon filter new firmware features for ps3 and psp psp lbp psp granturismo psp
Ico is probably going to be unvaled at TGS The new David Jaffe project won't be at E3 either...:( Still plenty to checkout Heavy Rain, Uncharted 2, MAG, White Knight Chronicles, Fat Princess, God of War 3, Gran Turismo, Syphon Filter!?, Starhawk!?
What does E3 domination do for sony exactly? Increase sales? I doubt that...In my opinion far too much emphasis gets put on stuff like E3. Announcements and games can be shown with or without a big stage. E3 is really for the hardcore who already have PS3 or 360
Thats right boys and girls sonys is bigger and better and stronger then they ever been even compared to ps1/2 days. They going super sayain baby which is a whole othere lvl.
Ps3Xtreme... honoring their name.
Who cares about sales. This is about us gamers. Seeing what to expect in the future, games that we are impatiently waiting for. I don't benefit from sales, but from games and features that come out. I hope there is great stuff coming. We are still very early in this console generation. There is so much potential yet to be reached.
With realistic damage physics all in slow motion... in 3D!!! O_O
There are a lot of hugely disappointing rumors swirling around the 'net that say Kojimasan may shock all of us Sony fanboys. As in, MGS4 + DLC and New IP exclusivity heading to another console... Now before you freak about this, know that it's not anything more than underground whispers, but I'd say that would potentially be a huge blow to Sony if it were true.
God of War 3/ end
I love how this Valdass guy reports this story as lame, but not their preview of "Hanna Montanan: The Movie" On Topic: I think MS is going to pull out some big guns this year. IF Sony wants to win E3 they need to pull out bigger guns. Something like a .357 MAGNUM :)
This is not a topic about the Xbox, this is a PS3 thread. So to that I say: Sony will indeed make us gamers happy with some great showings and hopefully there will be some cool new titles shown to make us giddy with glee.
Like 90% of the games announced at E3 don't even come out that year. Last year we already knew about Fable 2, Gears 2, Netflix, etc. This year...Halo ODST? APB is most likely going MP. Point is, if you've never heard of the game before chances are its not coming out this year. My favorite rumor is the new Half Life will be 360 exclusive. That would make Gabe Newell cum in his pants.
Sony's lineup is just too impressive. Comparing the announced titles you can tell MS is lacking. Sony's got David Jaffe's new project, MAG, God of War, Gran Turismo, Heavy Rain, Team Ico, Syphon Filter, Fat Princess, Demon Souls, White Knight Chronicles, plus an unannounced title they showed to the BBC reporter. The PSPGO could also be a big hit. I'd like to see them strike a Blockbuster deal too. MS has got Halo ODST, GTA DLC, RARE game, Forza 3 and Alan Wake. They also are trying to aquire a bunch of PC ports. Kind of defeats the purpose of owning a console.
This article is just plain stupid coming from a Playstation site. YOU DON'T RAISE EXPECTATION BEFORE A COMPETITION. YOU LOWER THEM. These playstation sites are talking so much crap that Sony basically has to announce hologram technology if they want to surprise anybody and score then unofficial "win". At the same time expectations for Microsoft are so low that if they don't fall down on stage everyone will say that they did great. God forbid Konami announces that MGS4:Subway Sandwiches is coming to 360 in 2011, everyone will swear that Microsoft won even if they M$ admits that they have nothing else. Darrius' example skit :) (Microsoft rep walks on stage and begins talking): Halo 4 will release in 2010. We have canceled all of our other games. Thank you........................... .... Oh Yeah, MGS4:Subway-Sandwiches will release for 360 in 2011. (Crowd erupts with applause) ( 360 fans:) Woo-Hooooo. Victory. We get Metal Gear Solid. (Sony Rep walks on stage and begins talking): We have 152 exclusive PS3 games releasing in 2010 in addition to the normal multi-platform games. These games are equally split across every major genre and they all will look and play better than Uncharted. We are closing down Life with Playstation because the PS3 has cured cancer. Not only do we have X-game chat. The PS3 has a new in-game phone that can be used to make phone calls to any telephone, land-based or cellular, for free. The Playstation Store will now get new movies day and date with their release at the movie theaters, so you can watch box-office movies in your living room. (Hideo Kojima begins talking): Metal Gear 5:Raiden will release exclusively for PS3 in 2010. By the way, my team is not working on the MGS4:Subway-Sandwiches 360 port and it won't release until a year after MG5 anyway. (Journalists talking): Microsoft stole the show again. Can you believe it, MGS4 to the 360. Sony's showing was a bit of a let down.
I am gonna laugh so hard if Microsoft ones more steals the show. PS3 fanboys are riding high these days and can fall so hard... I still remember the E3 show of Sony, was it last year or the year before, when allmost the whole show was looking back on PS2 succes. But results from the past aren't a guarantee for the future. We've seen that with Nintendo after the SNES/N64...
According to you the Ps3 doesnt sell and has no games... Frankly if M$ doesnt show something decent that console is straight dead. Ps3 doesnt have to do anything.. Its been selling with negativity since it launched.. Thats the benefit of making an all around solid console. Sony has nothing to prove this E3, NOTHING. They have proved they have the better console already.
The PS3 already has an impressive line-up. There's nowhere to fall. It's not like PS3-owners are banking on E3 to discover upcoming software they're going to want. The line-up already exists, and it isn't going to disappear or become less appealing because of whatever Microsoft happens to present. So no, I don't think Sony fans will "fall so hard" even if Microsoft announces more new games than Sony, or announces a PS3-exclusive going multiplatform. PS3 will still have Uncharted 2, God of War 3, White Knight Chronicles, Ratchet & Clank, MAG, Heavy Rain, and lots of other stuff for owners to look forward to. But it's all besides the point, because, believe me, they'll announce new things too. As an owner of the PS3 and the 360, Microsoft announcing former exclusives as multiplatform does absolutely nothing to excite me, it just aggravates me, because it doesn't reinforce my ownership of either console. If Microsoft wants to please me as an owner of their machine, they need to bring me some exclusives, otherwise what's the point? It's nice for 360-only owners, but it's completely irrelevant to me: I was going to get Final Fantasy XIII anyway, and Microsoft's announcement last E3 didn't change one single thing for me in regards to that game. I'm hoping this E3 that they go all-out on Alan Wake and Halo ODST, hopefully even Fable 3 or something else from Molyneux. Multiplatform announcements are going to cut it for me.
Mart you sound like all Microsoft need to do is to steal an exclusive from Sony, and they instantly won the show. Just like last year your saying? The fact is last year nobody won. Sony didn't show much last year, Wii found themself a grandma to do the gimmick show, and Microsoft loss some mentally ill jokers to play in the movie!? So what if Microsoft stole FFXIII? The PS3 only owners are still able to play the game, so what differences does it make?
And I am gonna laugh so hard when sony steals the show with their supposedly mediocre exclusives your not interested in.
I actually believe you WILL "laugh so hard"... that's what makes it even sadder and says volumes about you.. Of course, you'll be laughing at Sony no matter how good their show is as you're guarenteed to find some stick to hit them with, even if you have to conjure it out of thin air.
I don't really wanna get into all the fanboy stuff, but I have a very strong feeling Microsoft will give Sony a run for its money at this year E3. They haven't announced any new game, they haven't shown anything and they are keeping everything so close to the chest, while on the other hand Sony has already shown big games like Infamous, Uncharted 2, MAG, The Agency & Heavy Rain (which we will see in a couple of days) and games like Quantum Theory, Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2, and couple of other big titles that we know they are in the pipeline, plus the awesomeness that is God of War 3. While the only complaint I had with Sony is that need to put more action RPGs like MassEffect on there console. Since Microsoft hasn't announced anything there is a very good chance that they will surprise everyone at E3 with some jaw breaking announcement. What I don't want is Microsoft to walk down the aisle and say oh our major announcement is a former Sony exclusive is now a multiplatform game.
Well thats what Greenberg said in his interview with Adam Sessler that one time, Microsoft likes to underpromise and overdeliver...and it makes every MS announcement seem like it's the biggest thing ever once they do. Sony shows their cards early, so by the time something does come out it's been exhausted with previews and "gaming analysts" already speculating how it's going to flop and Sony making a mistake blah blah... I'm really hoping that Sony is right about it being their best E3 ever because they already have a great lineup coming this and next year as it is, but I know MS is going to pull some kind of trump card to try to overshadow it. Just like last year's E3...Lips, You're in the Movies...but then Final Fantasy 13 is going multiplat, "OMG the 360 won EASILY AGHAHGHAGHGHAH!". No one even cared about all the other stuff other than the new dashboard update. So we'll see...I know PS3 is going to have a good presentation, but the thing is we kinda know what to expect already. With MS we really don't have a clue, so there's gonna be nothing but surprises for them and everything is going to seem like a major announcement.
but I don't think it's gonna be a run away victory as this fanboy induced site seems to believe. We simply have a general idea of what's gonna come from sony, we know nothing about what's coming from MSFT other than rumors and speculation. It can go either way but to set yourself up by putting all ur eggs in one basket like this site is doing is only gonna hurt ya in the long run IF msft truly has some big guns that's gonna shut a lot people up....only a few weeks left. we shall see.
I can see it now, Sony will have all those great games to show, and then Microsoft will show one big PS3 game going to the xbox 360 and that what every body will be talking about for next 2 months after the event.
There seems no other huge 3rd party exclusive PS3 games to buy anymore. Even if MGS4 or MGS5 does really go multiplat, it won't surprise most ppl much. The big announcement from MS this time may be more geared towards Wii, probably motion sensing FPS?
@ Director ~ I do agree with you but to an extent, as even if that was to happen the truth is they MAY get some temporary exposure but the fact is they won't have much of anything else and it won't last long...so ultimately the reality would be that people will see there are much more TRUE exclusives of AAA quality along with awesome multiplatforms available on the PS3, not too mention EVERYTHING else you get with a PS3. MS has a way of pulling the wool over peoples eyes and waving 1 new shiny thing at them to divert the attention away from their massive shortcomings...but at the end of the day it's nothing more than a cheap parlor trick and people grow tired of that very quickly. Especially the ones who have no new REAL games (not Lips, 1vs100 etc), have to deal with their system breaking constantly (I just got my 4th RROD/RLOD) and on top of all that paying for a service which should be free. Kids see things one way Parents see it another while Gamers and Consumers as a whole prefer TRULY innovative products that have an inherent value for the investment laid out. And Sony has that in excess.
That was the best summary I've ever read. I completely agree with that. Day 1 60gig PS3 here and its been worth every single penny. I bought a 46in bravia and 5.1 surround at the time so they all were set up DAY 1 together and i've been next gen every since. Value + Quality = Sony
I tend to agree with the article's overall sentiments: Sony should have E3 2009 wrapped up. We're talking about a presentation which is going to showcase new unannounced PSP/ PS3 titles which will include some 2009 projects, on top of the confirmed titles for 2009 and 2010. I also presents a time for Sony to show development of their other services, such as HOME and the video store (when is Europe getting this?). The idea of price cuts and remodels are circulating as well. MS and N will basically have to have two years of E3 events to catch up (since they have virtually nothing announced for the remainder of 2009) and I don't mean this in a bad way, I'm just trying to emphasize how much Sony have on the table atm. I'd be surprised if they don't have the best showing at E3, cause if they don't, then they are not doing themselves justice.
I hope only that i'll see something new, not announced and surprises from Sony. Yes, they're going to show lot of wonderful games, but for me, the most important, is to surprise the potential customer. Ok, for someone the games there will be enough, but not for me. What i'd like to see? - 1-2 new super exclusives, never heard before (real ones) - price drop - FF VII remake (impossible, but it's what i'd like) - new accessories and 3D compatibility - new firmware that will leave me like this ---> O_O (cause of the huge new features, kept in secret untill E3) I'd like at least 2 of those and i'm happy. I hope i'm not going to see the game already seen 9999 times in pics, movies and so or the announcement of a new project that will be ready in 90 years...
I'm just here for the games. The ultimate winners at E3 are gamers with empty wallets and purses.
No, we are the losers also. The winners are the ones with bottomless pockets of cash.
Sony's momentum has really been increasing over the last 12+ months. A steady stream of annnouncements and actual releases have really improved their standing with me. Sony are certainly going in to E3 with a strong line up. I just hope there will be a few surprises to back up the stuff we already know. The great thing is, Sony isn't relying on a few core franchises, they are also showing diversity and innovation. New IP like LittleBigPlanet and inFamous are coming out regularly and at the right time. inFamous will be a great time sink until Uncharted 2 or Ratchet and Clank launch later this year. Not only that, but they have short, med and long term covered, which really gives me confidence in the Playstation brand. MS and Nintendo are going to have to pull out all the stops to compete with Sony, and this increased competition means only one thing... Us gamers win! Bring on E3
then yes ps3 won e3
PS3 owners wont care about what MS shows even if it is something really cool. Likewise 360 owners wont care what Sony shows even if its really cool. Douches on both sides though are guaranteed to show up on N4G to continue being pawns for both companies marketing departments. This is all so silly.
It's just kinda fun. Sure it's no more than an e-peen contest, but it also allows each company to set out their stall, to show the world what they are doing. It may be fodder and ammo for fanboys, but it does have a greater importance. A good E3 showing may help someone sitting on the fence decide which console to buy for instance. For someone like me (I own all current gen consoles) it's a useful measure of which brand is going to have a strong 09/10 and what I have to look forward to, and where I might be spending my money. E3 performance also gives hints to the direction the big players are moving in. An example... The last few E3's have shown to me that MS do not have a clear stragey beyond 'crush Sony'. Their big announcements have revolved around three things. 1. A very small number of key IP's. 2. Making games multi-platform that previous sat on Playstation, and 3. A land grab for the Casual market. This doesn't really get me excited in the Xbox brand, so this E3 really is a big one for MS to win me back as a 360 owner.
E3 , imo, can't be won or lost the way many seem to imagine. Yes, one company can be said to have made the biggest splash but there's absolutely no way that it's anything other than subjective for any watcher. Last year the press consensus was that, somehow, MS had "won" at E3 due to the FF13 deal and the NXE stuff(mainly) but I was personally way more interested in the games that Sony showed off and esp. LBP and MAG and I wasn't alone in feeling this. Though most agreed that Nintendo had a really bad show, in farness. Also this is MS big day to show off.E3 is at home in the US, their back yard while it's only part of Sony based in the States and for shareholders etc I feel both they, and Nintendo, feel that TGS is more important. I wish we could get away from thinking who "won" E3-last year if you weren't a fan of JRPG games would you have cared at all about FF13? I expect more reveals like that from MS-possibly a MG multi plat(not shocking) or SE giving 360 KH3 exclusively(more surprizing than it going multi and prolly bad for the game's sales overall). As an owner of every console around atm I'm more up for release dates for known games and announcements about those we know nothing about, just suspect and those we are maybe hoping for-and obviously new IPs are what I enjoy seeing the most and , along with returning ones (from Valve, rare etc for MS), I'd like to see plenty this year. I shan't be crowning anyone for a bleedin' press event though.
That fcker has had 2 ps3's! As far as I'm concerned he's a victim of the hype. He's a droid whether he likes it or not. You'll never see me buy a 360. He can talk all the sh1t he wants, we all know he's first in line to buy littlebigplanet for the psp. Hee hee!
You obviously don't pay attention, I have: 1 x PS3 2 x 360 (in line up to be able to play co-op with a friend offline without splitscrene) 1 x Wii 2 x PSP (Fat & Slim) and a lot older systems, but above is this gen. I would never ever buy 2 x PS3. Not worth it. I already have a second grill in my garden.
I think Microsoft will have something big, but I can't think of anything they could possibly do to convince me that I shouldn't sell my 360. XBOX will continue to beat PS3 in sales (unless there is a PS3 price cut), because the majority of people who purchase video game systems are not all that interested in video games, they just want to play halo, c.o.d., and madden. All their friends already have a 360 and their cheaper so... That said, PS3 in 2009 -holy sh#t. This is the best lineup of exclusives I've ever seen. I'd love to see the new ICO game, new Twisted Metal and if it's not too much to ask for maybe one surprise game, but if I just get some release dates for the stuff we've already heard about...consider me happy.
I could care less,emerging victorious from E3 is a fleeting,phantom triumph.If Sony demonstrates some of it's highly anticipated titles that aren't FPS's only,then I am content.Game releases lately have been.imo,lacking at best across ALL consoles.Having said that,Sony has a potentially awesome E3 lineup,If it meets or exceeds my expectations then I,You,We Win E3=)
