    I cant wait to see some PS3 and REVO stuff. Plus Stranglehold looks great so far.


    A fair few announcements should make E3 interesting this year.

    the 360's got a damn impressive lineup this year. it's short, but those are all (supposedly) going to be top-tier games.

    There's supposed to be a Rare announcement (if Moore lives up to his word), and I'm sure with the acquisition of Lionhead we'll get some kind of game news about that.

    I'm hoping to see MGS4, as well as a new Tekken and GT. So they're all sequels, but hopefully that will make the progression all the more noticable.

    I'm just excited to see ANYTHING about Revolution. I just don't see how they are going to manage to squeeze everything in there two hour announcement. They have a hell of a lot two talk about. DS Lite, Revolution, price points, launch games, show some vids, explain wi-fi connection on Revolution. Downloadable games? Price points for those... and so on. This should be a good E3 showing for Nintendo

    It finally got a publisher. They're just waiting to "officially announce" it. ;)

    Probably will be at E3. :up:

    IT BLOWS MY MIND HOW SOME GAMES HAVE TROUBLE FINDING PUBLISHERS. YOU'D THINK ALL THEY HAD TO DO IS SHOW SALES FIGURES FOR THE 'MAX PAYNE' GAMES, AND EVERY PUBLISHER IN THE BIZ WOULD BE SUCKING UP TO THEM, AND BEGGING TO PUBLISH IT. :confused:

    Well keep in mind, Alan Wake isn't a hip-hop themed game licensed off a white clothing manufacturer who actually grew up in a suburban town.

    But seriously, I am disappointed in the publishers of today. They seem to think the game industry is about developing bottom lines, instead of about making desirable, quality products that result in good bottom lines.

    This year's E3 is going to be a blast. I can't wait to see new info and gameplay footage of Too Human and Metal Gear Solid 4. I also hope Bungie finally unveils Halo 3 at E3 - that's gonna be a showstopper.

    Oh and Sega...where's my goddamn Shenmue 3 and the sequel to Panzer Dragoon Saga?! :mad:

    Judging from the interviews I've seen of Silicon Knights, and the company's track record in general, I'm very much excited for Too Human. Though the info E3 brings of it will also probably be a delay, I want to see more of this game. I'd also like to see more MGS4 footage, preferably gameplay and the "nowhere to hide" mantra applied to practicality, but the game I really want to see for the PS3 is Project Assassin.

    Sega can't hear you, they're too busy trying to "develop their relationships" (acquire) with mediocre-to-decent western developers and second-rate sports licenses.

    I've all but given up on Shenmue, sadly. After Microsoft published Shenmue 2 for America, I had strong hope that if Microsoft had bought Sega (like they were offering to) they would have continued the story. Sega became stupid and Sammy ruined everything.

    Yu Suzuki's working on something, but I'm having trouble recalling what right now. It doesn't matter though, because it's not Shenmue 3. :(

    I really hope Naughty Dog tells us what their next project is at this year's E3,whether it's another Jak game or something completely new.

    But,if they don't,at least I'll still (hopefully) see Halo 3 and MGS4.

    While I have no doubts Halo 3 is being made, and even though Bungie said their "next project" was "surprisingly playable", I think Microsoft would rather let E3 be about it's games that need more press. Too Human, Mass Effect, Gears of War, Rare's next game, maybe Shadowrun, etc. need all the attention they can get, and any hint of Halo 3 would instantly absorb every last Xbox360 journalist out there, effectively, Microsoft killing their own E3.

    They could just "leak" Halo 3 info at some arbitrary point in any month from then until the PS3's last few weeks before launch, and let consumer hype do the work itself.

    There are always the X0 events in September. Halo 3 could be announced at X06, that would be only months before the PS3 and Revolution's releases. It would definitely spur interest in the Xbox360 in a time when PS3 hype will be at an all-time high, and if Shane Kim's lucky, it will get more people buying more 360s for Christmas than otherwise when the PS3 is having it's massive shortages.

    Gears of War (X360)
    Mass Effect (X360)
    N3: Ninety-Nine Nights (X360)

    Sad that it's the only three games I'm remotley interested in this year, so far.

    Edit;
    Halo 3 shouldn't happen. There are too many games that people are only semi-interested in that need to have a good show. Like, N3 and Gears Of War. If they just said "HEY BY THE WAY HALO 3 IS COMMING!" then thats all anyone would rave about for the whole show. Come on, give Microsoft more credit than that

    That's my bet. Halo 2 was announced at X02 afterall, and in trailer form. With Bungie's "next project" being "surprisingly playable" circa three months ago, it may actually give us both a trailer and a gameplay demonstration.

    I have a strong feeling Microsoft would want to announce it then. It just makes the most sense. And with the Halo movie coming out about half a year from when X06 will be, I'd say Microsoft could actually get bigger excitement for Halo 3 than there was for even Halo 2.

    But they don't want that kind of crushing weight laying down on Gears of War and Too Human, that's a small reason I think it's going to skip E3. Their plan is probably something like this:
    1. Get anticipation for Gears of War, Too Human, Mass Effect etc. up.
    2. Announce Halo 3 at X06 to raise Xbox360 demand in wake of competing consoles.
    3. Many people buy Xbox360 in preparation, and/or for replacement of the PS3 during shortages, want to know what great games are currently out.
    4. Many people see Too Human, Gears of War, Mass Effect, etc. Viva Pinata for the kids.
    5. Voila, free franchise-booming with the powerful help of Halo.
    That's what I think at least. It makes sense to me. :up:

    god i hope your right, I just hope that Bungie or whoever that is making Halo 3 dont rush it like Halo 2, the only reason why people still play that game is cause of Live.
