Forums - Gaming Discussion - It's that time again! An early E3 wish list/prediction thread.

So, we are two and a half months away from E3 2017 (June 13-15) and it's always interesting to see what people here want/expect from E3, so let's discuss.

 

Sony: I'm picking them first because  I think they need to please the most people is the easiest. Shenmue 3 news, FF VII Remaster news, Death Stranding info, Kingdom Hearts 3 info.... Heck to be honest just show the games you already have planned to release soon and you will pretty much kill your conference. 

Side note, if they want VR to sell anything they should also show at least 1 new big budget vr game. I don't really care enough about that though to speculate.

Odds of "winning" E3: Average, given that I doubt they'll really have anything to freak out over that's new. I expect their conference to just be updates mostly.

 

Microsoft: These guys essentially could steal the whole show easily if Scorpio is affordable, and they hve a few exclusives that really show off what it can do. Think, Nintendo won E3 last year in a lot of peoples eyes and they just had a system and 1 game. It's high time Micrsoft went out swinging as they really have yet to do that this gen. As for games, we'll probably see Forza, and something Halo related. I'm also hoping for something out of left field, I'm not really sure.

 

Odds of "winning": Low. I do hope and expect them to come out swinging, but at this point what can they do to counter Shemnue, Death Stranding, and FF VII Remake? Multiplats won't do it, even if they do run better than Pro with Scorpio. 

 

Nintendo: They're hard to predict, but we can assume for the most part they will elaborate on things they've already shown as well. I expect in depth previews of Mario Odyssey  and Xenoblade 2. Now the question really is, will there be anything from third parties that isn't announced. I'm hoping for No More Heroes, Fire Emblem Warriors, and maybe, juuuuuust maybe Bayonetta 3 or Beyond Good and Evil 2. If they throw Metroid a bone I wouldn't hold that against them either. 

 

Odds of Nintendo "winning"? Low I think in all honesty. I'd love a newMerroid, and if they can turn me around and surprise me with Xenoblade 2 IMO they will win, but most people probably won't care all that much, even if Bayo 3 or BGaE2 show up. 

 

I'll  finish with a prediction. Nintendo Event will be recorded again instead of a live event, and be all the better for it. 

 

So what say you?

I really want to know what Retro Studios is up to.

I get this feeling they could have more than one project in the works.



I predict NX launches in 2017 - not 2016

Fingers crossed for the announcement of The New Switch XL.

The most important life decision this month is upon us.

Vote now and be part of the solution, not the problem.

As much as I would like to see more from Nintendo I think Super Mario Odyssey is getting the Breath of the Wild treatment.

Nintendo is in the best spot now honestly with all the Switch momentum.
If Capcom decides to throw any bones about a Switch version of Monster Hunter, and Nintendo announces a SSB for it, it will rob many headlines.

Also, theres many subjects which Nintendo can explore, like the future online service and advantages, probably some UI update for the Switch with some new features etc.

All I wish for is Persona 5 on Vita, infos about FF VII Remake and huge Cyberpunk 2077 trailer with 2017 release date.

I wouldn't hold my breath for anything Vita related... it is mostly abandoned for anything except indies.

Persona 4 Golden was big success. I know Persona 5 is very demanding for Vita, but I don't mind if they do sth like in Persona 3 Portable on PSP

Yeah, but P4 was announced for the Vita back when the marketing machine was still going strong. Sony has since moved on... the chance of getting P5 is probably zero, or it would have been announced already, to keep interest on the machine.

The usual, just some LoD would be enough...
