Hopefully we get a ton of demos like we did last year. New trailers would be cool too, but they just make me want the games even more :lol:

I thought they re-did E3 this year, so it's like just press only. I would think it'd be a little more professional if that is the case, and I would expect to see more quality, not necessarily quantity.

There to be 340 games there so its still a nice sized event but yes press only now.

I want to see more from

1 Killzone PS3
2 Metal Gear Solid 4
3 Assassins Creed
4 Fable 2
5 Star Wars Force Unleashed

Those are my big 5 titles for this e3 I am looking forward to. In that order also.

Yeah they re-did it, but I would assume there will be just as much info on all of these games as the previous E3s, since that is still the entire point of E3, in which case I don't see why they wouldn't still have demos to release. Remember, E3 wasn't releasing demos, the companies where to coincide with E3 and the game info being released there, so I'd imagine the same would happen this year.

That being said, all I really want is a demo for EA's Skate and I'd be super happy :lol:

My "big 5" I want more info on would have to be

Rock Band
Guitar Hero 3
Skate
GTA 4
?

OK, so there's only really 4 I'm drooling over. I'm really interested in Madden and NCAA too, along with NASCAR, but being that they are sports titles there's never too much ground-breaking info on them at E3, you pretty much know what to expect with them already.

There's a banner on the main page of IGN's 360 website that says a demo of Stuntman: Ignition is coming to the marketplace next week, so that's 1 confirmed demo so far. I haven't been to the page in awhile so I don't know how new the banner is, so it could mean THIS week.

Bruzer
07-08-2007, 09:44 AM
Thats a good list GTA 4 I would like to see more but as for Killzone I just want to see how close they match thier trailer. MGS4 I just love that game. Fable 2 becuase they didn't show awhole lot last time but the technology looked great I want to see if they have made a lively world yet. Assassins creed I would like to see how big the world will be. Then Stars Wars I am a star wars nut and almost any star wars game I cant wait for lol.

Saw that footage of Call of Duty 4 yesterday at Gametrailers. Stunning. :eek: Looking at it makes me believe that "Killzone 2" might actually get close to that E3 2005 trailer they got a lot of grief for. Sony could use some good news. :D

I don't think we'll see much more GTA IV stuff. Rockstar usually is very lowkey at E3. Though I'd love to be surprised. :)

Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare is not set in WWII, it's set in the present day Middle East and Eastern Europe. I think that's why it is so anticipated. :wink:

Unless you're just sick of 1st person shooters altogether, which is understandable since the market is flooded with them.

Yes, 5 is after 4. :goof: The reason I brought it up is it's because Game Informer listed it under their E3 list of games for this week. It's a pretty big franchise so a new entry into the series does make a splash.

Sam Kennedy's blog at 1UP.com says he saw Wipeout HD for the PS3. Seemed to be impressed.


We hooked up a PS3 in our update room and blew the hotel's fuse.

In a relentless pursuit to milk their NFL deal for all it's worth, EA sent out a press release today announcing their new arcade style football game NFL Tour. Listed for Xbox 360 and PS3.

Electronic Arts Inc., (NASDAQ: ERTS) today announced that NFL Tour, a new NFL licensed arcade football video game, will make its way to the Xbox 360(TM) video game and entertainment system and the PLAYSTATION(R)3 computer entertainment system January 2008. NFL Tour will bring the spectacle of a traveling NFL road show alive, with intuitive controls, fast-paced gameplay, and visually stunning graphics - NFL Tour is action-packed.

NFL Tour is a new NFL licensed video game that offers players a fun and engaging experience with the NFL and its talented players. Gamers will be able to embark on a fictional NFL road show. With real NFL players as teammates, players will travel across the country to play against each of the NFL teams in newly designed stadiums. As players defeat each of the NFL squads, they come one step closer to winning a NFL contract.

"We are extremely excited about our new arcade football game, NFL Tour, which will provide players with a brand new exciting football experience," said Executive Producer Dale Jackson. "NFL Tour is a fun, action-packed football game that will appeal not only to football enthusiasts, but also to casual gamers."http://www.easports.com/nfltour/

No footage or screenshots yet at the official site, just a small video hyping it up. I guess the NFL Street franchise is dead?

Live interview with "Major" Nelson, Director of Programming, Xbox Live. Didn't really say anything of merit, just a lot of "wait and see". Can't say much due to upcoming press conference. He did take a shot at Sony for their "price drop". When Kevin pressed him on why there wasn't a browser with Flash support, he basically fell back to his "wait and see" answer.

Nah, he's cool. He's just a bit excited about E3. Though Geoff does seem taken aback by Adam's enthusiasm. :lol: It's good to know they actually have 2 real gamers (Sessler & Keighley) covering the press conference.

EDIT: Quick heads up, G4 will show the Microsoft (as well as Nintendo and Sony) press conference(s) live but they will run commercials. A G4 employee posted on a very popular forum that they promise you won't miss anything of signifigance as they are working with all three companies to plan their breaks accordingly.

That being said, it would be wise to fire up one of the live free stream from one of the sites I listed earlier just in case they botch it somehow.

Microsoft press conference started off amusing, bored me in the middle aside from the XBLA stuff, then finished with a nice run of Call of Duty 4, Resident Evil 5, Assassin's Creed (omg) and Halo 3. No price drop though.

Microsoft played it safe, but I guess the current market leader can do that. Good press conference. Not great, but good. Does leave the door open for Nintendo and Sony to knock it out the park tomorrow, though. Anyway, thumbs up!

I bet it would work, there are some people out there with core or premium systems that would bite plus those of us who have been holding off on getting a 360.

Nintendo's press conference was good. Just like Microsoft, they kind of played it safe and only showed what they had to. Super Mario Galaxy, Metroid Prime 3 and Super Smash Bros. Brawl are all confirmed for this year and all look great. Mario Kart Wii online is a nice surprise. WiiFit means nothing to so-called "hardcore" gamers, but it will ensure Wii's will sell at their ridiculous pace.

As much as I love Nintendo, their constant montages patting themselves on the back was annoying. Yes, we know Wii and DS are taking over the video game market, no need to club our heads over it every 20 minutes. Also, like Microsoft, not enough new stuff was shown, only stuff we've known about or was hinted already. Very disappointing after a strong E3 2006 showing.

Anyway, I'll say it was good, but not great. We'll see what they have to show during the week.

EDIT: By the way, Sony has been given the green light to steal E3. Let's see if they can pull it off. Killzone 2 last night was a good start.

Well, Sony's press conference was the best of the 3, but not by much. The opening PSP montage and slight redesign was nice. Followed by a long boring part until Metal Gear Solid 4 showed up, which didn't show actual gameplay...again. The 1st party stuff was good too. Killzone 2 lived up to the hype and will probably be Game of the Show.

There wasn't much that completely blew me away (aside from KZ2) and the constant shilling of their other products during the presentation was shameless. Also, Home is a good idea but I really don't care for the whole concept, at least not yet.

Sony was the underdog going in and acted like it (no bragging about sales, or lack thereof). They came off well and after the E3 2006 disaster, this is a good thing. Will it translate to sales? We shall soon see.

If I'm not mistaken, it means PS2 backward compatibilty isn't hardware based but software based now. It's basically a cost-cutting measure but no one knows for certain if it means less PS2 games are compatible with PS3.

i'm seriously getting a blu ray pla....err ps3 within like 3 weeks.....

i know there are some good FF games, and maybe even god of war 1 or 2 that i could rent when i get it

That means it uses emulation rather than hardware for backwards compatibility.

Which is interesting to me because I thought that alone would only make the 80 gig 50 dollars more instead of 100 dollars since they are saving money with that move.

It is the way it is done in the European version of the ps3

How is the 20gig PS3 different from the 60? Is it just HD space. Because if I can find a used one, considering the price drop(I'm hoping it'd be $350), then I'd strongly considering getting one. Then I could just upgrade the HD when I needed to.

Here is a snippet from an article I found:

Demonstrating the new add-ons at the conference in Los Angeles, Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime said the Wii Zapper, an Uzi-shaped motion-sensing controller, would likely lure more players into battle games and appeal to die-hard gamers devoted to first-person shooter titles.

The light-gun shell, Zapper holds the Wii-mote and Nunchuck controllers in order to create a fully functional gun peripheral complete with analogue stick.

"The Wii Zapper holds the same potential to change the nature of first-person shooters as the Wii remote did to other games," Fils-Aime said.

To be priced at $19.99, the Wii Zapper will come bundled with selected Nintendo software. Some titles that will be compatible with the new peripheral include Capcom's Resident Evil: Umbrella Chronicles, SEGA's Ghost Squad, Medal of Honor Wii and an un-released title from Nintendo.

Man, I hope that it will be out in time for Metroid!

360 is by far the best gaming console to date.

Gamespot scores/user score/combined critic score (from many publications)
Gears of War: 9.6 Editors' Choice/9.4 user score/9.4 critic score
Oblivioin: 9.6 Editors' Choice/9.5 user score/9.4 critic score
Forza Motorsport 2: 9.2 Editors' Choice/9.1 user score/9.2 critic score
Advanced Warfighter: 9.2 Editors' Choice/9.2 user score/9.1 critic score

Gamespot has 22 360 titles that are currently ranked an 8.5 or higher, 6 of those titles are rated a 9 or better (56 titles ranked an 8 or better). PS3 currently has 5 titles that are rated an 8.5 or higher (21 titles ranked an 8 or over). Also consider that many of the highly rated PS3 games are also on 360 (not to mention that many of them look better on the 360). The only PS3 exclusives that are any good (to this point) are Ninja Gaiden Sigma (remake of NG Black), Resistance: Fall of Man, Tekken 5 and MotorStorm.

360's most impressive games aren't even out yet, so it would be a real mistake to trade in your 360 for a PS3.

Mass Effect is an XBox360 exclusive and will be coming out in November (by far my personal favorite) and is planned to be a trilogy.

Other 360 titles of interest:
Halo 3 (September 25 release date)
Assassin's Creed (#2 on my list of most anticipated games)
Two Worlds
Rock Band (not my kind of game, but many are looking forward to it)
RE5
CoD4
GTA4
UT3
GH3
Haze

I own the 360 and the Wii, and will get the PS3 soon (waiting for the 80 GB version), so I'm not just some 360 fan boy saying this.

I'd have to say the ps2 is the best console to date to be honest. Ratings don't matter at all really. FEAR was rated like 8+, although it was good it was nothing great. Just another example of ratings. Look at the game Bully on ps2. It got like an 8.7 and that game is just rinse/repeat of nothing really challenging.

I was thinking the same thing. 360 was/is definitely the leader out of the gate but I really think the PS3 will outlast it. When you look at some recent games for the PS2 like God of War 2 it really makes you wonder what kinda power they will be able to unleash from the PS3 in a year or two. I really want both though, I just know that my luck I'll get the 3 red lights of death right off that bat. :lol:

I think he meant current Gen(which is next gen really).

And I own a ps2(have had it for its entire life span except like 6 months), and the 360 is the best system I have ever owned. Sure the gaming library for the ps2 may be more diverse and hgiher quality, but the 360 has only been out a year and a half.

I heard GT5 looks absolutely stunning, even in its current build.

As for the games, I can't recall wanting so many games over a 6 month span. It is averaging out to like at least 2 a month from here on out. No way I can afford that, lol. But that means I'll be on the lookout more for used games, or the used game sales like buy 2 get one free. :yes:

Also, I was at Gamestop yesterday, and Blue Dragon was priced as $50. I made a comment to the worker about it, and he said nearly everything is gonna be that way soon.
