This is why E3 is so bollocks these days, they announced these games last year and there still not on the horizon for this year or probably even next.

So who cares how jam packed there E3 shows are, it will just be CGI trailers for games we wont see again for 2-3 years.


Some games do get announcements that take 2 or 3 games to be released.

Also Sunset Overdrive was revealed in 2013 and it was released one year later.

Yes and LBP3 was released 4 months after announcement. But for every 1 game at E3 press conference thats like this there are 4-5 that are CGI videos of games that more than likely have barely started development.

I think you misunderstood the problem. It's that 2016 games were revealed too early and should have been left for this E3 instead. What are they gonna do, announce 2017 games? Is that going to be their yearly E3 plan, always? Cause why would they remove 2016 games to announce 2017 games..?

This E3 could have ended like this: after showing the games coming in holiday 2015 (both exclusives and the usual third party promotions), "have a look at some of what's coming in 2016" and you'd see the first announcements of both Scalebound and Crackdown, with gameplay footage. The 2015 games would have gotten their highlight while still fitting in new announcements. Sounds like a better E3 than last year and most likely better than what this one is going to be like.


You mean like how Driveclub and The Order were announced in 2013 and didn't drop till 2 years later? Par for the course in the gaming industry these days. Almost every game is announced far in advance of their actual release. 

Driveclub was released one year later. Also, no need to defend MS for this. Its a bad practice for anyone who does it.



These are titles already announced. I am all for showing them at Gamecon and allowing more time for announcements about future titles.



Its libraries that sell systems not a single game.

hey good for gamescom

That's freaking awesome.... We've seen all these last E3 no need for them at a conference put them on the floor at GDC not only does it make way more sense but I'll probably be at GDC 😋

Now can't wait to see MS E3 it will be the least boring as usual.... So what megaton you think we'll have... ??? An hostile takeover bid on Sony finally??? 😎
Jk bur i can't wait to see all the unannounced game and features they'll have during the conf



People expect to much from one conference, their is really not much time to show all.

It's pretty clear MS announced alot of games way early to give the perception they had more content then Sony. It's catching up with them now and there is nothing they can do about it cus Sony is in "harvest" mode. It's been said constantly Sony is masters of pumping out games but people didn't want to listen.
