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 wish everyone would do a recorded event. Those live things are so awkward, bloated, overproduced, and overlong.

I understand what you're saying but the recorded events would have to be less awkward, bloated, and overproduced themselves.  I mean, when you have Reggie and another grown man sitting down to play with Skylander Amiibo or you have Miyamoto wandering around looking at temples, then you're hitting the hat-trick for awkward, bloated, and overproduced.

Still the absolute best show I've ever seen at an E3 was Sony's from last year (or was it the year before?) where they showed games one after another.  Live or recorded, both can be done well or done poorly.

Those examples are a bit unfair though, they're not awkward because they're recorded, they're awkward because they were basically made to fill up time during Nintendo's 2015 presentation seeing as they had nothing else to show. That whole presentation was filler now that I think about it. Worst Nintendo E3 ever imo =P

It's not unfair because it would have been bad either way.  That's my point.  The content is what makes a show good, not being live or recorded.  

Though, personally, I do like hearing the crowd make noise for a surprise or something really impressive.  It enhances my excitement.

I NEED to know what Sucker Punch is doing.
Also, a new God of War trailer or demo would be epic.
Media Molecule HAS to show something about Dreams, its been forever.
Star wars stuff from EA
Insomniac's new game

I'm pretty interested in the Sucker Punch situation too.

I appreciate that, but for every instance of genuine applause there are three or four moments where the speaker intentionally pauses for applause to be greeted with silence.

- Teaser for a new IP.

Microsoft :

- Showing us the Scorpio for the 1st time on stage and lots of blabla about it's power capabilities.

- A new Forza and a cinematic trailer for a new Halo.

- Some gameplay of Sea of Thieves and Crackdown 3.

- Cinematic trailer for 2 new IP's

Switch Friend Code : 3905-6122-2909 

MSony:
- list of the same games or games only one shows but is on both consoles (or all)... this will cover over 90% of their individual presentations.
- Each will have 1~3 actual exclusives that cover games launching between Fall2017 and up to 2019 if any date is given.
- MS will touch on the Scorpio with final details (hint: its more powerful Xbox One)
- Sony will focus on their sales lead and will push VR again... though I think its as dead as 3D.
- Sony will also continue trend of following Nintendo's lead with some sort of push for portability with PS4. Maybe new Vita variant with bump in performance or new-redefined streaming gaming functionality for a newer slimmer/lower-priced Vita. (before you call troll on this, I think history is pretty clear Sony copies Nintendo's successful innovations and its not necessarily a bad thing)

Nintendo
- Switch focus with maybe a couple 3DS titles
- Elaborate on excellent launch, brag about Zelda
- Focus on some of the common yearly multiplats hitting Switch in the normal fall run with CEOs or others from those companies
- Detail out VC and Online Paywall (will be tied together as the unique feature to upgrade your VC content), will also highlight app support for Switch
- Tease some big 2018 title(s) such as Pikmin, Monster Hunter, Pokemon, etc... switch exclusives.
- Re-iterate larger 3rd party titles such as DQ and something else that is not a typical yearly title.
- highlight a larger number of Indie/3rd party titles though reel.
- A couple 2~3 smaller Nintendo titles/2nd party similar to yoshi, X, etc.
- Double down on rest of year big hitters such as Splatoon2 and Mario Odyssey.



Nintendo:

Mario Odyssey trailer

Pokemon Stars Reveal - looks underwhelming visually

Luigi's Mansion 3 - done by Next Level Games who did the second game, coming second half of 2018

Scorpio Scorpio Scorpio, all the details

Forza 7

Halo 6 - story trailer, lots of Scorpio mentions during this part

Crackdown 3 - gameplay and release date Q4 2017

genuinely don't know if MS have any first party studios that aren't working on thier big three besides Rare, so don't know what else they could have

decently sized, but not huge, 3rd party exclusive of established franchise. TR level rather than DR

Sony:

GT Sport - small trailer, launch date
