E3 is shaping up to potentially be one of the best of any year, what do you think we'll see from the major companies? Microsoft: - I think we will here a lot from them with many big announcements concerning new titles, etc. They new this E3 is a big one for Sony and Nintendo so I'm sure they've been saving a bunch of stuff to steal back some attention. - The next Halo at least mentioned, likely with some images and a video. But it won't come out this year. My bet is this isn't set to hit until Holiday 2007. Update 3/30: "Sources" say March 2007. - A big push for what people will have this year in contrast to the other companies hyping what we won't see until this Holiday season/Q1 2007. They'll want to say "you can play our system now and here is why you should care." Sony: - They now have to prove everything they've been talking about, show what they really have. I actually think I'll be most disappointed with Sony this year, PS2 had a lot of hype and then the big E3 event was really more of a let down. I hope that doesn't happen but am apprehensive. - A big show for their big popular franchises like Gran Turismo, MGS, etc. I think they'll use a lot of sequels to known franchises to get people excited; I wouldn't put FF7 remake past them, it'd be a huge splash. The next Tekken, etc. - Online stuff, 'it's a computer', and tell us what we really have to pay for it. Nintendo: - The "big" mystery; I have no idea if the "last big secret" will be amazing or not, I don't want to get hyped and it just be an extra controller attachment or something. - Hands-on, I think this will be a huge push for Nintendo because they have said many times that you have to play to understand, they want a bunch of people to do that and they want them to like it so much they do free promotion for them, word of mouth is the best advertising you can get. - Zelda:TP, showcased and playable on the Revolution. - A handful of games that are all playable to really show people what the system is made of. - A few videos of those missing franchises that aren't playable. - Final system name, release date and pricing, my bet is no higher then $199.99 USD. - Rev/DS connectivity, Online service/Wi-Fi I think all the companies have been holding their cards closer to their chest this time around because they all want to steal the show!
