    someone in the replies on the article claims that he knows from an inside source that it's that FFXIII is not a PS3 exclusive. I hope its something bigger than that.

    I predict: Atari announces their next gen system they've secretly been working on for years, and will be available in time for christmas. The best part is it plays games from all prior Atari systems. :cool:

    Honestly that would be HUGE news, extremely huge news.

    If any of the PS3's key titles gets announced for another system it is a huge hit to Sony. First GTA4, then Assassin's Creed... now if it was FF13 or MGS4 I would be shocked.

    To me, if either of those switch systems the PS3 could die, especially in the homeland (Japan).

    That wud be great.:rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes:

    But it`s definitely gotta be 360 price drop and it`s HD-DVD drive. But I`d like to believe it`s bout Wii price and launch date confirmation. It`s the only next gen console I m interested in. I might still get a 360 or PS3 if someone remembers my B`day though:D . BTW it`s 15/Aug;) .

    That's a really good guess. I'd say that an HDDVD addon pricing announcement, plus a super-premium bundle with it at a good price, but no price drop on the existing systems just yet.

    They'll wait until closer to the holidays... plus, while I was pretty sure they would drop the price this year, the announcements of the PS3 price and now the extreme lack of systems (half a mil worldwide?) could have changed their plans...

    360 Premium (maybe with a bigger HDD?) and HDDVD for $500? Wouldn't be a bad price if the HDDVD player is better quality than the XBox DVD player was.

    Agreed. The Jedi would feel that one. If SONY loses its last few big 3rd party exclusives, they could also lose an important fraction of their potential buyers. I for one will probably be forced to purchase a PS3 at some point because there are still some PlayStation exclusives I want to play badly.

    Agreed, it would be huge on the scale of the next gen console war. I just don't really play many of the newer final fantasy games so even if it did come out on 360, I probably wouldn't get it or maybe just rent it.

    This feels Wii related. It's neutral... release date/price?

    hang about... another random wild guess.

    edit 1: PS3 does not materialise as we know it. To stick true to (or excel rather) original claims that the PS3 is infact becoming the next line of computers from Sony. Runs Windows XP/Vista (though not with full DX10 as the PS3 simply cant), or perhaps their own brand of linux? Seeing the PS3 is not in production yet it seems like anything could happen.

    If anything, it's certainly not 360 related.

    edit 2: Price/date are announced for Wii. it's launched next week *wild wild one here folks*

    If Sony lost any of the MGS, the Wall, Twisted Metal, or Armored Core games... there'd be very little reason, even for myself to purchase one.

    Honestly, it's more than likely the HD DVD add-on for 360 as one poster already mentioned. If that can be considered "big."

    hahahahahaha.
    Nintendo released the name of Wii prior to E3, this could be another drop of information so they can focus on showcasing it next week. I hope it's really something like this and not "Table Tennis for 360" type "big news"

    Oh, it's going to be huge whatever it is.

    It won't be another console. They say "We just got handed a scoop for some important news with one of the next-generation consoles". It must be big for them to wait this long. but how about the raw feeds Praxis, anything coming up in press land?

    okok my final guess that I'm banking all my money on...

    The Wii is going to be launched next week with the continent press events as their respective launch day. This gives a week of pre-orders (though won't be necessary as, well if rumours are true, Nintendo have stockpiled the Wii for quite some time).

    Though my head and heart are conflicting here :eek: yes Chris, that is my final answer.

    oh and from Kotaku "...wee bit of analysis". Dropping a nice hint there. :D
