Sony E3 Discussion. News, Predictions, Reactions, etc.



  • @el-shmiablo

    Ehh I considered it when I was weighing PS Vita vs PS TV. I couldn't find one at any of my game stores and figured I'd rather use my PS3 since its for the same purposes in regards to PS1.

    In the end, a dream feature of the PS4 would be a fully compatible PlayStation ecosystem with PS1, PS2, PS3, and PSV all through streaming using PS Now. A huge feature of the PS3 for me was to buy old games for a cheap price. MGS is $5 on the store but $99 at the game store. I want that again with PS4.



  • Today's predictions are for Sony, and courtesy of today's Days Gone release date news, I'm rearranging the order of my picks. Once again, these are from LEAST to MOST confident:

    5.) Third party will have equal time to first party, but almost three times as many games (For example 12 third party to 4 first party)
    4.) Spiderman opens the show
    3.) PSVR returns to E3 with a montage trailer
    2.) Dreams will FINALLY get its release date, whether it's for a Beta or for the full game
    1.) Days Gone will NOT show up.



  • Let's add up the time

    -sony shows are 45-50 minutes

    • 4 first party games 5-10 minutes gameplay = 28 minutes + talking for 2 minutes = 30 minutes.
    • that leaves 15-20 minutes for 3rd party games like DMC5, From Software games, Bluepoint, Midevil, COD/Destiny and any surprises.

    If my math is correct it's gonna be a 10/10



  • @a7x458

    Just did a quick search:

    2017 = 1h 2min
    2016 = 1h 49min
    2015 = 1h 31min

    I do remember them being a bit on the longer side. I'm gonna predict 1h 50min this E3 2018.

    @a7x458 Wouldn't Bluepoint and whoever is devving Medievil be second party?



  • @el-shmiablo
    Bluepoint is still independent, they just favor Sony it seems

    Also cross one off my bingo card, Days Gone comes out February 2019



  • @dipset that's a bit too long imo, i'll say 1 hour 30 minutes max, probably around 1 hour 20 minutes



  • @bam541

    I think they're going long. I expect them to dial into some stuff for a long time and have a lot of flare in between.



  • Now that Microsoft have showed almost all thinkable third party surprises, i think Sony's stuff will be quite short and limited in comparison. They'll rely on the "Big 4" exclusives they have right now for sure. Except if they somehow manage to got the deal to show more gameplay of games like DMC V, it's going to be tough to "win" this E3. Especially if they have the less-appealing VR games and the obligatory Activision stuff holding them back.

    Man, what an interesting E3 this is shaping up to be.

    Also, now i predict that the conference length will be around 1 hour.

    The Microsoft conference made me so excited to play all those games on my PS4.



  • If Rocksteady game doesn't show up i will be disappointed, and i have hope for a Bloodborne 2 or demon souls remake/remaster.



  • Would have been 10/10 for me if that slow ass transition after TLOU Part II didn't exist. 9/10 will do, i respect the boldness of trying new ideas but they gotta think things through more.



  • Hope never dies!

    Resident Evil 2 Remake!

    trailer:
    Youtube Video



  • Very weak start with Naughty Dog game (yuck) but they showed some good stuff afterwards, good show overall.



  • i was LMFAO when Shawn Layden said they were in a church Sony had built



  • @yoshi Religious experience!



  • Very weird conference, horrible pacing.

    As of now, I'm hard out on Death Stranding. What's the gameplay? Hiking? It's cute to keep making cryptic masturbatory trailers and piling up famous actors but until they show me an actual videogame this is off my radar. I'm sure there's more to it, there's no way such a huge budget would be spent on a collection of cutscenes, but I'm not intrigued anymore, I'm uninterested.

    The Last of Us 2 looks amazing though, both in terms of story and gameplay, no release date though, not even a year!

    Spider-Man should be a fun ride!

    Unsure about Ghost of Tsushima, it looks insanely gorgeous but I really hope there will be Japanese voiceover because it was super jarring to hear them talk when everything else is feels so authentic. The combat almost reminded me of Bushido Blade at first when he killed the guy in one hit, I would have loved that! I need to see more to be completely sold.

    Resident Evil 2 Remake was such a good reveal! Excellent job, and wow what an amazing job they did, it seems it was worth the wait!

    No MediEvil, no Splinter Cell, no FF7 makes me sad though!

    The first part of the conference was terribad. Like, who made the decision to show JUST TLoU Part 2 at a seperate venue and then have a 10 minute intermission with Shawn Layden and a bunch of other people nobody gives a FUCK about?

    The rest of it was pretty decent, I think, especially those reveals and total surprises. Control was a standout to me, as I love pretty much anything Remedy does. RE2 looked amazing and that was such a GREAT way to reveal it.



  • I felt so many very intense feelings watching this show, and I believe Mr. Bosman acted them out accordingly. It's taken awhile to fully get my thoughts and feelings in order and coming up with a score. Let's do this.

    The Last of Us Part II was fantastic. The start with the banjo, having the presentation in a separate venue and the WORST part of the intermission were complete misfires. In order for such visceral split second irritation to have been avoided, I really feel Sony should have let everybody know ahead of time, "Hey, we're going to show one of our four deep dives in a separate venue, then transition to more inline of what you're expecting.

    The ONLY interesting part of that intermission for me was finding out God of War is getting a New Game+. But that's press release material.

    Ghost of Tsushima doesn't look like my kind of game. But I'm considering it. Why? That lighting. Oh. My. GOD. That's pretty.

    When the Control trailer played, I started to get hope in the conference again because it wasn't an intermission, it wasn't one of the four, AND it wasn't a first party.

    Resident. Evil. 2. Remake. That is all.

    Trover Saves the Universe I COMPLETELY forgot about until after I just typed the last line. Ouch.

    The Kingdom Hearts III trailer was practically a personal religious experience (a common theme from the earlier Last of Us bit). I won't badger anyone longer but... I need that game

    Death Stranding was more Death Stranding: Showed new, compelling stuff. WE GET GAMEPLAY!.... I still have no idea what I'm looking at.

    Nioh 2 was a surprising announcement (If you couldn't tell, it was at this point in the conference where my brain just jammed and couldn't function properly).

    Spiderman showed pretty well. So much so in fact that I... might... be... finally... interested? I'm indecisive here.

    At the start of writing this, I was going to score this a 7. Halfway through, I felt 7.5. I'm now feeling 8. Again, that intermission, in the moment, was beyond terrible. But I saw two of my TOP three most anticipated in the same conference. Everything EXCEPT the Trover game showed Phenomenally. This conference would have been tied with Microsoft without that intermission. I've decided. 8/10
