Art Green, Managing Editor:

There are three main things that I want to see from Sony in regards to the PlayStation 3: First, I think at least a $50, if not a $100, price reduction on the PS3 has got to happen at E3. $399 is simply too much to ask from consumers for the PlayStation 3, despite it’s ever growing fantastic software offerings. In addition to the price reduction, an announcement of a PS3 slim and a NXE-styled redesign of the front-end would do wonders for a re-branding effort.

Through in some great exclusives like Uncharted 2, Heavy Rain, God of War III, Ratchet and Clank: A Crack in Time, MAG, Project Trico and whatever else Sony has up their sleeves–this year might very well end up actually being the year of the PlayStation.

Chuck Waltz, Staff Writer:

For the first time in years, I’m actually most excited to see what Sony has up their sleeve for E3. With so many rumors floating around about the PSP Go!, I’m excited to see more about what this thing can do. Alongside the PSP Go! announcement, I’m hoping to see a new God of War PSP game as well as some gameplay of the LittleBigPlanet and Gran Turismo PSP games we’ve been hearing about. On the Playstation 3 front there are a lot of titles on the horizon that have got me pretty excited. I’m talking about Heavy Rain, Gran Turismo 5, Hideo Kojima’s new game, and of course God of War 3. A solid date for both a demo and release for some of these games would be fantastic. And finally, I’m still really hoping to see some PS2 software emulation come to the PS3.

Talor Berthelson, Staff Writer:

Sony–show us what your system can really do. So far this generation, I have seen nothing that appears to give the system more power than the Xbox 360 besides disc space. I also want to see what more they plan on doing with Home. The problem I see with Home is that, like Nintendo, it is so disconnected with the rest of the PSN. Maybe have it replace the XMB. You start your system and BOOM, you are in this digital world at your fingertips.

Lately, Sony has been doing good with PS1 titles, so just announce more publisher support for that and I’ll be happy.

Denis Poirier, Editor-in-Chief:

The PlayStation 3 seems to finally be coming into its own now, so I’m expecting a very good press conference from Sony. I’m hoping they will have some new content announced for Home, which has been a huge disappointment so far. I’m also expecting to see some more of God of War III and, who knows, they might even surprise us with an announcement for a new Metal Gear Solid game.

its ps2/ps3 bc
price drop
and they want nxe style interface
to force people automatically into home
and a god of war psp game.

endsights is cool right? Not !

everything they posted is something they want to complain about which should give them about 8 months of zero hardwork instead of reporting the game news.

Socomer your second post should have been your first post, it should have just gotten to the heart of what all the writers have stated.

Anyway, ps2 backwards compatibility won't happen because of lack of chipset (at least in the 40 and 80 models) as well as the emulation (which lacks in the 40 {and the new 80 models I believe?}) So we can probably throw that out unless Sony has something up their long sleeves.

A new God of War PSP would be nice, but what would it's substance be also? I have yet to play the PSP version of God of War so I really don't know to much about it.

Lastly, I strongly must disagree with having home take over and start right from the start, if so it should be an option just like how auto-start for games is an option. Anyway E3 is not to far from us now, we shall just have to see what is in store for us gamers.
