  1. E3 2013

    #566732013-05-30 09:46:54 *Xyopq said: Well gamers, it's that time of the year again. In a little less than 2 weeks, we'll all get to see what we have to look forward to (or be disappointed by) for the year ahead. With Microsoft and Sony having recently unveiled their next consoles, the competition will be heating up to see who takes the lead on the 'next generation' of gaming.

    In the meantime, let's share our juicy gamer gossip, speculations and wishes for the upcoming event. I'll try and list the gist of important information below, but I'll no doubt miss things, so let me know what it needs.

    Price and Release Date

    Sony have already said that it should be released sometime this year. I'm guessing an October/November release like the PS3 in time for Christmas, with a price that will try to undercut the Xbox One.

    The Console

    One thing that Sony didn't show off during the announcement was the console itself. They've already teased it in the most drama filled unveiling box video since Curiosity, so they're obviously proud of it.

    Used Games Clarification

    Microsoft shot off their big toe with their DRM infused, extra costing used games model; So it will be interesting to see if Sony are going to come out as the good guys in this side of things or merely the lesser of two evils.

    The Games

    The announcement for the PS4 didn't really show off any concrete gameplay material. Sony would be idiots if they didn't show any sweet, sweet gameplay goodness. New exclusives are a given, and I'm looking forward to more info on the new inFamous. Fingers crossed for a PS4 exclusive Monster Hunter (one can dream).

    Backwards Compatibility

    Sony have already announced that there will be none disc-wise compatibility, but there will be some version of it via cloud-based streaming. At the very least, we should be able to play Downloaded games through our PSN account.


    A Vita Price Drop

    Quite a few people are waiting for a price drop on the Vita before purchasing, here's hoping they announce one so I can get my girlfriend one and she'll stop stealing mine =P

    A New Vita Model

    If they don't announce a price-drop for the first two models, then this could be a possibility. Some improvements such as a HDMI port or being 4G compatible have been mentioned. A lighter version with better battery would also be welcome.

    Vita Streaming Detailed

    It has been said that all PS4 games are required to be able to stream to Vita, unless it uses hardware such as the PS Eye which would make it uncompatable. It would be nice to see some of the remote play being demonstrated.

    New Vita Exclusives

    As with most new consoles, the games library is a bit low at the moment and we could do with some more must have games for the system. With the success of Persona 4: Golden. I wouldn't be surprised if they announced a few more RPG's to keep us occupied on the train.


    Of course, the PS3 still has another 4 years on it's 10 year lifecycle that Sony announced when the console was first released. They will need to show that they still mean it.

    Meh. E3 has lost all its charme these past years. The coverage from PAX Prime is usually much, much better =/

    And Ubisoft now also announced Rayman Legends for Vita, so only the PC is left out again. Should've known, Ubisoft's PC work is usually below average anyway...

    As for Square Enix, I really hope they'll announce sequels to the Tomb Raider reboot and Sleeping Dogs.

    Kotaku have posted a tour of the E3 grounds this year before the event kicks off:

    Looks like I'm gonna miss the microsoft & EA conferences, but should just be in time for the Ubisoft one :D

    I'll be interested to see if they actually try to salvage Xbox One, or if they somehow make it's rep worse. Not that there's anything for them to lose anymore.

    After a boring, disappointing day at E3, Sony brought a smile to my face. Versus, Kingdom Hearts, got me off guard, even that 'The Order: 1886' trailer, Octodad, Transistor. All the good news about sharing games, prices and so on. Was awesome, thanks to the Sony staff.

    I will sell my fucking soul for a TWEWY sequel. And maybe my arm. And maybe my tears.

    I just want it to happen and so many people do that. Yeah.

    I think Microsofts Xbox department should declare a crisis meeting to discuss how to safe their jobs and business sector before any more of their screw ups arise which condemn the Xbox.
