Do we even have anything from MS? they are too silent. Maybe they will bomb us with some announcements?

The problem is by my experience most of the unexpected stuff they usually show or say is usually misleading or many years off...They'll announce lots of timed exclusivities, Crackdown 3 release date, a new Halo, Fable and Gears of War and Forza Horizon 4 of course. And I don't know why, but I somehow get the feeling they'll show some X1X exclusive VR solution with WMR headsets.

If rumours are true they also have marketing deals with Borderlands 3, Anthem (we knew that), Cyberpunk 2077, Shadow of the Tomb Raider (knew that as well) and other high calibre games, so expect them to show those as well, running on PC or X1X.

None tbh. The last 5 or more E3's haven't really rocked my world so to speak. The last 3 PC e3's sucked and never really went anywhere, so I'm not expecting this year's to do much either. I don't really bother with the rest, not since I lost interest in some of those companies years ago.


I went Nintendo. Sony I know will release games I like. That isn't in question. Same with Square enix.

I don't play smash, but I want to know if it is a real smash, or just yet another Port.
I don't care for Animal crossing, or Metroid. But I'd love a new 2d Mario, or Donkey Kong.
I find Pokemon very boring, but an E3 of the 2019 version could get me interested. Specially if they fix all the "dull" parts of the lastest pokemon. That had WAY too much talking. Plus I hated that face thing on the lower screen.

Plus always the rumors of Mother 3,or various 3ds games like Etrian Mystery dungeon 2, or Persona Q2.

It leaves me a lot more questions so I'm more invested in them than anything else.

I'd have said Microsoft. But I have no belief they will do Alan wake 2 and that is the big title I want.

heh, 3rd parties are getting massacred in the poll

Makes total sense though. Usually the best stuff from any 3rd parties are at one of the big 3's conferences anyway.

Bet Shiken that COD would outsell Battlefield in 2018.

Devolver Digital's conference last year was amazing. I can't wait to see what they have in store for this year.

Sony is out of the question because it happens too late, 3AM here. The PC conference starts earlier than that, at 00AM, but the previous years they've tried to be more like a talk show than a conference, and for me it will be too late for that. And then comes MSoft, which I'll see, but their conferences tend to be boring, with a very bad pacing and always looking for an applause after everything they say, even when there's no need for it.

Given that I don't care about third party publishers, specially EA, that leaves me with Nintendo, whose Directs tend to be more entertaining and dynamic than the rest, making them easier to see and enjoy.

Please excuse my bad English.

Currently gaming on a PC with an i5-4670k@stock (for now), 16Gb RAM 1600 MHz and a GTX 1070

Steam / Live / NNID : jonxiquet    Add me if you want, but I'm a single player gamer.

I don't own a Switch or Xone nor do I intent too. Sony will mostly be the big yearly update show. Whilst pretty cool I can not sauI am excited for it. Bethesda could have hit a homerun if they didn't feel the need to announce 2 big titels almost a month in advance. So Square couldhave a pretty cool conference. So lets go for Square they might have something interesting in the pipeline.

Please excuse my (probally) poor grammar

Microsoft. its theirs to lose to be honest.

Sony, I am pretty sure about what they are going to show, but look forward to being surprised.

Nintendo.... well i will see what is announced and choose what to watch there. the last few e3 shows have been painful for me to watch.


maybe Ubisofts show, but that is about it.


Nintendo, because that's my system and Nintendo's been a lot vaguer and less leaky than the other titles. Though Microsoft has to prove they deserve to still be here this year...

The Democratic Nintendo that a paradox? I'm fond of one of the more conservative companies in the industry, but I vote Liberally and view myself that way 90% of the time?
