E3 2012 may be two and a half months away, but that doesn’t mean we can’t make some predictions!
E3 2012 only two and a half months away? didn't realise how soon it will be. I just hope for some glimpse at sonys/ms' next gen plans
Its almost that time of year again! Unfortunately, I'm starting to feel like E3 will be the last real push for the 360/PS3 and that we won't have any new hardware announcements. From Nintendo, we all just want to see the Wii U, the final specs and I want to see some real games (no tech demos this time around). From Microsoft, less Kinect, more games and hopefully they unveil the successor to the 360. From Sony, I just want to see all the games that have been rumored for a few years now. Title Fight, GT6, God of War 4 ect... and lots and lots of new Vita games please. Bioshock, MGS, CoD, AC to highlight their third party lineup and hopefully some good first party stuff too.
MS already confirmed that the the 360 successor will not be there this year.
@yabhero Ya I know. That means absolutely nothing tho. If they were planning on unveiling it at E3, they wouldn't come out and say it.
Yes but they wouldn't deny it either, they simply wouldn't comment.
LoL... The Mass Effect 3 "new ending" DLC prediction is probably the lamest E3 prediction ever.
Hey man, I agree and I wrote the article. If BioWare waits to talk about ME3's DLC until E3, it'll be at MS's conference.
Or EA's... I'm not knocking your article... hell, at least I took the time to read it before commenting. I'm just saying it's a sad state we're in where gamers would expect or want DLC to change the ending of a game, and to me that is lame.
I'm with ya. It pisses me off that they even have to change the ending to begin with. I'm sure they'll find something else to bitch about too.
Just hope the vita and kinect segments are kept to a minimum and not dragged out.
I agree with the Kinect part (unless they finally shouw something that really wows), but Vita can have a nice chunk of Sony conference since it's: 1. New hardware. 2. Suppose to have a huge 2nd half of the year. 3. It's a great gaming platform.
Announcement of new consoles would be good....
It would but MS and Sony said there out of it... WiiU is hopefully going to convince everyone though... I for one am convinced...
As much as I agree with the "new consoles plz" comments, both Sony and Microsoft have said they weren't getting into it at this year's event, so I didn't include them in the press conferences. Now, game companies have flip-flopped before, but I may as well go with their most recent comments, right?
Yea, i'm just holding onto hope that their comments were all for PR sake and they'll actually try counter Nintendo. Also hope you're wrong about the Vita stuff :-p Selfish, but i've never been interested in the PSP/Vita side, would be better if they could either hold multiple conferences or at least extend their usual one to cover both.
And here is TooPawneds aka the Legend predictions There will be new games. Surprise b....s!
You missed out on ZoE from Konami. There's the HD collection, some sort of 3DS title(potentially, from what I recall), and ANY news at all about 3, which is all I want to hear from them.
Oh man, if there is really a new ZOE game coming out I'll be all over that. I'm already excited over the HD collection.
Elite 4 in motion is my wish rather than a prediction. I like your early guesses though.
Well, the article was a bit less serious than I'd have thought, and it's certainly difficult to predict games based on having no previous information (most of Wii U's lineup, particularly in regard to first party titles...). I agree we will see a lot of Vita hype to move more units (maybe another Bioshock mention, even though no work has been done, yet...), and Kinect and Move will finally be seeing some hardcore titles, like Sorcery and the Fable spinoff. I bet we'll actually see a lot more tablet game announcements; Epic can't be the only serious studio committing "big" titles to the iPad. I still think Microsoft will at least tease a new console, even if it's a very vague target video and a logo, or a flash of a controller mockup, just to punch Nintendo in the gut, a bit... I don't think that Sony and MS are going to be needing to put out new consoles that soon, unless the Wii U is really blowing them away, but multi-platform titles will still be coming to the 360 and PS3 because of the large installed base and the fact that developers are set up to make games at that level. The current-gen graphics aren't exactly looking dated, yet. Kinect Star Wars will probably get another demo, but how about the 3DS? Will Nintendo be too busy with WiiU to show much, as they basically did last E3 with the Wii? We should see the new "2D" Mario title for the 3DS, but I don't know if that means a "New Super Mario Bros." type, or an old school pixel/2d game... And Shigeru Miyamoto supposedly has a new IP (not Pikman 3...), which we could see teased. Although Nintendo might be too packed to show more new stuff, they could really aim to blow every other company out of the water with sheer volume of games announcements.
In the words of Sherlock Holmes: "It's the most apt prediction she's made in years."
