I'm personally hoping for a PS3 price cut (I want a Slim), as well as new footage of Vita and Wii U games.

trpride2839d ago

The price cut won't change much for retailers considering on how much the ps3 is selling now.

vickers5002838d ago

Me too. Been waiting a month for this price cut, barely playing my ps3 (which is about to go out), the wait is hard.

Anon19742838d ago

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 want that exact Vita release date and maybe a GTA V announcemt. It's time for a new GTA game

iamnsuperman2839d ago

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.

Kingsora2839d ago

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

iamnsuperman2839d ago

@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.

Dee_912838d ago (Edited 2838d ago )

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 :)

Tachyon_Nova2838d ago

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.

SephirothX212838d ago (Edited 2838d ago )

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.

Zechs342838d ago

That was my resume and pictures, I only did to get a kick of what it would start on Gaf and N4G...


aaabbbccc43242838d ago (Edited 2838d ago )

i hope Sony announces the getaway with a trailer and release date for either 2012 or 2013

jamstorr862838d ago

I might as well be the first person to say this, but Shenmue 3 anyone! hahahaha

Godchild10202838d ago (Edited 2838d ago )

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.
