I think we'll be in for some surprises for E3 for sure.

I know for sure that Microsoft is shifting all of its internal resources to the casual market. They will continue with Halo but thats about it, the rest will be the casual stuff all MS 360 fans have been fearing. The price i am betting will be 99.99, but who knows. Wii Fit set a road to success, at one point outselling the PS3 system itself (LTD), so as long as your addon is amazing enough, people WILL buy it. I am buying NATAL day -1. I've heard it comes out late october.

Sony is going to show a ton of sequels, thats for sure. They are also going to be pushing the Move bigtime. I've heard that it will be the majority of the E3 conference. And that we're going to be seeing a lot of stuff that will wow everyone. If you noticed, up until now, sony has shown nothing but outside developer titles, none of their internal stuff or from major third parties (aside from RE5). I expect we'll see a lot of good games shown and a reason to actually want to own the damn thing. Pachter WiiHD Confirmed. I am buying Move day 1 (i have a PSEye already). Very excited to try it out.

Nintendo is going to talk about how they are the best, showing more sales charts then humanly possible. They'll show off the Vitality sensor and have 1, MAYBE 2 good apps for it, and it will be like Wii Motion Plus and be underused. But those 1-2 good games will still sell millions of copies and iwata will laugh, and reggie will yell Pizza Pizza.

I am so excited to see all 3 conferences. My biggest wants from the show:

Microsoft basically throwing all their eggs into the casual basket. Not only would i get a nice laugh from it since MS has 0 clue what casuals actually want, but i'd love to see the hardcore MS fans panic and become freightened.

I want to see a 360 Slim, because i'd love to say i own a reliable xbox at one point in my life.

I'd love for MS to make online gaming free and add more fluff to gold, but i also want nintendo to become third party, so obviously we dont get what we want.

As far as nintendo, i'd like to see a real HD system. Ive tried everything they've offered on the wii so far, and am still disapointed. I just recently got Wii Fit Plus tho, its a fun time waster. I will get Vitality Sensor day 1. Gotta try it. I am open to new experiences, but things like Wii Motion Plus are so underutilized that its sad.

3DS, i read a interview with Iwata that made it sound like the games will all be 3D games instead of 2D to take full advantage of the 3D technology. I consider nintendo the weakest 1st party when it comes to 3D (not eye 3d, third dimensional) amung the big companys, so am curious to see what they end up doing. Not really into portables also, so not much interest.

Sony has been doing fine imo, they keep pumping out quality exclusives and PSN works fine for 99% of people out there. I went to go buy another PS3 and literally sold out everywhere again. Its getting absurd at this point. At E3, i hope we see the official PS2 games on PSN announcement, and a lot of cool Move games. I am buying Move day 1, can't wait to try it out.

I am biased because ive tried basically everything everyone offers and am happiest with sonys approach so far. I hope they keep on trucking. I also hope this gen lasts at least another 3-4 years. These systems (360/ps3) still have a TON of life left through software upgrades.

I will buy the Move on day one, wife and i were on the archery team back in college, the Move got the most precise translation of archery yet. I saw the video of the lady pulling the arrow from her back and releasing her fingers to shoot, man, i got to say, it's freaking cool! So instead of buy the wife a compound bow (which runs $800+), i'm just gonna get a set of Move controllers :lol:

Of course, i will miss the green grass and the small talks when retrieving the arrows and especially the thrill of getting a "Robin Hood" (one arrow penetrates another arrow).

i say sony has a price drop on the psp down to 99.99 for the core and shows videos of the psp 2

Nintendo tells the world they will stop making the DS and only make the DSI and the new 3DS starting this fall and they will drop the DS down to 79 or 99 to clear them out ..


MSFT will stand there with their hand down their pants :)

Nintendo
Vitality Sensor/Wii Fit ++ or whatever it will be bundled with
Legend of Zelda
Metroid Other M
3DS - maybe a Mario game for it.

Sony
PSP2, PSP price drop
Move - SOCOM 4 being played.
Infamous 2,Resistance 3 teasers/trailers
Last Guardian footage
Batman Arkham Asylum 2 gameplay (I'm sure they paid for more exclusive content since it worked out well last time)
Final Fantasy IX "out on PSN today" announcement like 7 last year. - maybe tied into Premium PSN announcement since it was rumored that PSX games would be included in that.

Microsoft
Natal - pricing/bundles
360 slim
Gears 3/Reach
Metal Gear Rising debuts

Hope we finally get to see the new Hitman this year as well.

I guarantee that the new Zelda will finally be removed from the stale format it's been in since the N64 days. Since "New Super Mario Wii" made a shit-load of money, I wouldn't put it past them to make a Zelda side-scroller to make it "accessible" to the mainstream. I doubt that it will not be ready (no matter what they do) for a 2010 release.

I think if Sony announces a premium membership with the PSN that could be a huge mistake. I own all three systems, and I'm starting to buy PS3 games because I don't have to pay for the online play with the PS3. If Live and PSN are the same price, I would choose the superior Xbox Live and use that platform.

The new motion controls are too little too late in my opinion. I think the Natal looks cool but I have no clue what they have in store for it. Also, I still can't believe Sony spent five years or more (they said they've worked on them b4 the Wii) on a glowing Wiimote. I think of the Sega CD and 32X when I see these products.

Bring on the 3DS and INNOVATION not Sequels!!!

Nintendo:
-They will spend a majority of the show explaining how they're the market leaders and how they don't need to listen to their fans because they no longer need them
-They'll reveal what the Vitality sensor actually does.. everyone will laugh.
-A new Zelda, built from the ground up for the Wii, just to appease their casual criticism
-A huge focus on more casual games, lots of new add-ons
-Heavy focus on the 3DS, but they won't show the actual system or games, just tech demos

Sony:
-They will reveal new features for the XMB and PSN premium service
-They will concentrate heavily on the Move, nobody will care
-PSP2 will be revealed, showcased alongside GoW: Ghost of Sparta
-Killzone 3, Resistance 3, and inFamous 2 will all be revealed, GT5 will be shown some more
-The Last Guardian will be playable, will be considered by many to be game of the show

MS:
-Natal will be playable, everyone will quickly realize that it doesn't feel right to "play" games using Natal
-Halo Reach will receive a lot of coverage
-A new exclusive game from some 3rd party, probably Capcom or Namco
-Rare will show off a bunch of mediocre games, but Killer Instinct 3 will wow attendees
-A new, redesigned Xbox 360 will be revealed (with promises of being "more reliable"), along with bundled packages with Natal

Others:
-Activision will have multiple sequels to all of their games and over-priced expansion packs
-Sega will woo fans with Sonic 4, but it will ultimately suck
-EA will have nothing interesting, outside of the new Medal of Honor

- Microsoft will trot out some big name celebrities who have little if anything to do with gaming, along with some actual developers (the Bungie guys are definitely in for this year).

- Nintendo will show franchise staples (Metroid and Zelda for sure this time around), and will have the most unexpected surprise(s?) out of the three console manufacturers. Reggie will have more stage presence than Cammie.

- Sony will show a lot of games, a wide variety of them. PSP will be downplayed, or even ignored outright.

- Either Microsoft or Sony will say and/or reveal something that will steal the other's thunder. Just heard today about FF Versus XIII possibly going multiplatform, so there might be that.

In other words, the usual, more or less. Personally, I'm looking forward to hearing more about (and seeing) the 3DS at Ninty's conference.

If FFvXIII was going multiplatform, it would be announced at E3 as a surprise. This 'considering' announcement makes me think we're going to be twisting in the wind for another year on that one, at least.

Sony - Non-Move (3/5)
- PSP price cut to $170/$150 (Bundle/Core)
- Mass Effect 2, Splinter Cell Conviction coming to PS3 this fall
- FFIX on PSN during the Press Conference
- Man Furismo Jive dated
Spoiler

- Some kind of big new PSN feature (Cross-Game Voice Chat, NFL Sunday Ticket, or Music Store are what I can see happening)
- Resistance 3 no show

Microsoft - Non-Project Shitbox (4/5)
- Xbox 360 lite, with wireless built-in/HDD
- Current Xbox 360 clearance sale ($50 price cut on older units until gone)
- Gears of War 3 shown, looks like Gears of War

- Dreamcast games coming to Game Room (Pack 1 available when they say it)
- Rare no show

(In case you're wondering why I say non Shitbox/Move, it's very simple. I do not know, I do not care about their shitty motion-control knockoff devices)

Nintendo (0/5 - wow)
- 3DS announced for fall, $199 US dollars
- DS lite/i/XL price cuts ($99/$150/$170)
- Nintendo Live announced, will start in 3DS (put 2 and 2 together on this one, you'll get it)
- Wii Vitality Sensor bundled game announced/shown/dated (Don't know what it'll be called, but it'll be there)
- Retro Studios presents: Zelda Wii
- Golden Sun DS no show

Third Party Crap
- Sonic 4 dated for September, no one cares
- Capcom announces Devil May Cry 5 (spin-off?) from Ninja Theory
- Square dates Final Fantasy XIV beta for PS3, PC
- Konami dates Castlevania: Lords of Shadow
- Batman: Arkham Asylum 2 silently moved to Spring 2011

Ah, good point. (Plus Wada's hella good at leaving the fans guessing like that.) I'm still anticipating something on that scale, though.

And I would be very surprised if there isn't a DQIX release date announced at E3, if not sooner, considering that it's supposed to be out this summer.

I got a feeling Harmonix has a shit ton to say about Rock Band 3, especially new features and a sly way to actually teach guitar.

There is also going to be that other developer ??? that is making a new music game that ships with an actual 6 string electric guitar.

The second installment to DJ Hero is going to get played up huge, along with another developer announcing their own DJ game and turntable controller.

I honestly think Nintendo is going to announce a new console, but I don't think it's as simple as an HD Wii.

Natal will finally get a real name...can't imagine what it is going to be. I'm going to guess Mo$hun...lol

I also think MS will announce internet browsing capability for the 360, along with a real MMO for the XBOX as well.

SouljaBoy's game will finally announce a release date

I'm not really channeling much of anything else...except I am sure Green Day will be performing live...lol
