GamesCom starts tomorrow with the EA press conference, on Wednesday GamesCom opens their doors. There will probably be some big game related announcements. What are now the hottest rumours for GamesCom 2011?
I'm personally hoping for a PS3 price cut (I want a Slim), as well as new footage of Vita and Wii U games.
The price cut won't change much for retailers considering on how much the ps3 is selling now.
Me too. Been waiting a month for this price cut, barely playing my ps3 (which is about to go out), the wait is hard.
I didn't realize that European retailers had already lowered the PS3's price in anticipation. 50 euros, that's about $70 or so. So if Sony makes it official, PS3's will be $229 maybe? Or will Sony just take it down to $199? Certainly that would boost their sales which have started to slow. I figured they'd cut the price when they set their target at 15 million for the fiscal year. There was no way that was going to happen without a price cut. They have to have something up their sleeves.
We'll soon know about that... Even if the pricecut don't come, the next fiscal quarter ends with August if I remember the sales talk righ, so we'll see how they are doing and if they need a price cut. Historically their third fiscal quater (holidays) are the big sales monthes, so I think we can guess that if they are on the schedulle they shall report something like 35%º45% of those 15 million in half the fiscal year. That's around 6m consoles sold by the end of august... Now to the wait game. EDIT: I mean 6m sold in this fiscal year so far, which started on April 1st 2011.
I just Hope NCSoft finishes Guild Wars 2 before starting another project!! Wanna see more Game play of The Secret World..looking forward to that one!
Sorry to say but NCSoft has been working on Blade and Soul for the better part of 3 years.
Yeah NCSoft is working on Blade & Soul while ArenaNet is doing Guild Wars 2
I hope PD announce what they was suppose to announce @ e3 more than likely Gran Turismo for Vita but im hoping for something gt5 related :)
new race tracks and at least 20 premium cars :D..i wanna see this track and this track back and this one too why not? :D and this premium car
a ps3 price cut will happen this year maybe at gamescom maybe at TGS. Syphon filter is in development since sony registered a trademark about 2 years ago for new syphon filter SM studios are working on 4 unannounced games so chances for one of them to be shown i would say are great here is what i want: news on agent news on more hd remakes GTA hd remake JAK hd ratchet all 4 games from ps2 hd FF7 hd MGS portable ops hd DMC hd and hopefully some more surprises
I just want that exact Vita release date and maybe a GTA V announcemt. It's time for a new GTA game
Even though GTA V would be cool I have little craving for it. I wouldn't mind if the release it in the next 3-4 years.
That probably means we are already in the next generation and that means we only got one real GTA game this generation. That would be a stupid marketing move from Take Two and Rockstar. And you are right, I do not crave for it. GTA IV wasn't that good in my opinion. But an announcement during Gamescom and a release at the end of next year would be enough time to make us warm for a new GTA
@Kingsora Yes it would have been stupid maybe 4 years ago but Rockstar and Take Two are pumping out other fantastic open world games. They do not need to any more because these games sell really well. They seem to have move to a longer development cycle making sure the games are great.
yea I want a new GTA in 2012 I enjoyed gta iv but it was a bit too "serious" but the DLC left a good impression of what the next GTA would be like so im looking forward to a new GTA very soon and a new midnightclub :)
GTA 5 will debut on next gen consoles. Look at GTA 4, the problem it had on consoles is that they strong enough that they were expectex to build a much more complex and populated city than they could do on previous consoles, but they arent quite strong enough to pull it off while maintaining a HD resolution, AA, or a stable frame rate.
Oh heaven how many times do I have to say it? GTA V will be released next year. The guy whose resume leaked pics of Agent shows the games he worked on while at Rockstar. One of those games mentioned was GTA V. Now he was at Rockstar from 2005-2009. This means that GTA V has been in development since at least 2009. Also, he puts the release date beside each game. Beside Agent, he put "TBA" and beside GTA V, he puts "2011". The only logic to this is that when he was at Rockstar, they had planned to release GTA V in 2011 but had not yet decided on a release date for Agent. If they had planned on releasing GTA V in 2011, it must be far on in development now because guess what, it's 2011. This would back up what the other rumours stated. Now if it was originally going to be released in 2011, surely it won't release any later than fall 2012. GTA is the money maker for T2. We're approaching the end of this generation. Everything points to a 2012 release date for GTA V. I just don't know how some people can't see this. It is obvious that Agent is in parallel development and will likely release a year after GTA V.
That was my resume and pictures, I only did to get a kick of what it would start on Gaf and N4G... /s
i hope Sony announces the getaway with a trailer and release date for either 2012 or 2013
I might as well be the first person to say this, but Shenmue 3 anyone! hahahaha
If it's anything it better be surprises. Games we least expected to see or be announced. Reboots/resurrections of older franchises and not just HD collections of PS2 games (Great to hear about them but the ones we all want). A great RPG game to bring back the life Sony has started with the PlayStation platform. More games (exclusives) coming from Microsoft and not that they are jumping into the Handheld gaming market to compete with Sony or Nintendo (While it's a great surprise, I just don't think we need another one). I'm sure there is more.
Give me 8 days and a new Syphon Filter and it's all good!!!!
Off topic but sleeper game of the year is gonna be the cursed crusade
I hope they give us some info concerning the status of FFVs13. I hope it is not cancelled. I would also like some info concerning the goodies that will be included in the Prestige edition of MW3. Maybe an announcement of GTAV w/ location (fingers crossed for next gen Vice City), and end the press conference with teaser of GOWIV
It won't be present at TGS, so it will surely not be present at GamesCom
Free Vitas for everybody
Give me Battlefront 3!
Syphon Filter reboot wooot!
The Syphon Filter reboot has me intrigued but if I hear a Tenchu remake for the PS3 powered by a great company (Platinum Games, Ubisoft or Naughty Dog) then I truly would be excited for Gamescom.
a tenchu game made by ND would be amazing.
Tenchu game made by From Software* :D
I want more info on Thief 4.
" Even though GTA V would be cool I have little craving for it. I wouldn't mind if the release it in the next 3-4 years." your in the minority. everyone i know is killing to want to play it if you dont then dont buy it when its out stop talking like your saying what we think. 4 years for a GTA game is too long.
I hope sony change his mind about vita release date
What if Kojima came out and announced he was making the new Syphon Filter game.
There'll probably be a short trailer and then a close on his face, then he'll say "Did you like it?"...... Like he did with MGS4 lol
Can someone plz tell me where can i watch it and what time is it on, UK time. Thanks.
you can watch it here http://www.facebook.com/Son... and it starts at 6:40pm
A worldwide PS3 pricecut. Sweet, I want to buy a new PS3 for 249.99$ here.
i'd like to see half life episode 3 come out or halflife 3 come out
HD pong remake and every other game ever made redone .
Sigh I would kill to see a new Timesplitters. I guess I'm the only one here. I just love that classic franchise and miss it (sniff) ;(
I would love it too!
Dota2 gameplay! Guild Wars 2 release date! Rage pc gameplay! War of the ring gameplay! That's what I'm hoping for!
As always Legend of Dragoon 2. One day it will happen.
The PS3 gets a price drop, many retailers sell the PS3 already 50 euros less than the retail price of 299.99 and now would be standard. -- Most likely. Sales seem to be slowing a little The multiplayer of Modern Warfare will be 3 (for a limited audience) already playable. -- Almost a given. There will be a Syphon Filter reboot announced. There have long been rumors about a Syphon Filter game for PS3. GamesCom on the game we would for the first time. -- Would be nice and the rumours have been around for years. Santa Monica will unveil their latest game, maybe God of War: IV -- Doubt it will be a new God of War Mass Effect 3 multiplayer will be unveiled. -- Hope not Microsoft will first show Kinect working on a Halo game. -- Hope not We get an exact release date for the PS Vita. Here we do so with a date and more than a 'early 2012'. -- Possibly. We learn what first party games from Sony certainly are scheduled for release PS Vita. So one day games will be available for the PS Vita. -- Probably There will be a big announcement made in connection with the game Starhawk. An announcement that we would not expect. -- PC compatibility? EA will announce a new Syndicate game made by Starbreeze. -- Likely. Battlefield 3 will be playable on consoles first. -- Probably. DONTNOD Entertainment, a Triple A PlayStation 3 exclusive announcement, called Adrift. -- I guess? THQ Saints Row will be a spin-off announced for XBLA and PSN, called Saints Row: Money Shot. You will in this game take on the role of an assassin. -- Never played Saints Row but it could be likely. NCSoft will unveil a new MMORPG. -- Doubt it.
Is it true that Nintendo won`t be showing anything related to the Wii U on Gamescon?
Quantic Dreams project Dotnod Adrift exclusive to the PS3 the comeback of Eight Days and The Getaway and price cut.
Battlefield 3 jets !!!!
A price drop would be appreciated by everybody's pockets and wallets everywhere!
I wanna see some new hitman gameplay.
From Sony I expect a price cut on the PS3, a solid release date for the Vita, Syphon Filter and a new God of War.
I was really hoping to be at Gamescom this year. Once you live in Europe its a pretty easy place to get to. Work is a bastard. I would like a Jak 4. Also some mention of GOW, Sly Cooper, or an old PS franchise being resurrected.
I'd love for a new Sly game to be actually set in stone, im a huge fan of the series, Jak, too.
Hey Arothe... The new Sly game has been announced and gameplay shown. No release date as yet though. http://www.youtube.com/watc... Did you play the HD collection? That was amazing!
You know what would be awesome? A Battlefield 2142 Expansion Pack for Battlefield 3, similar to what BFBC 2 did with Vietnam. A man can be hopeful...
i hear minecraft pocket edition is exclusive to a sony platform ( handheld)
