    Cool Sony E3 conference - June 4, 6 PM PST / 2 AM UK

    http://www.mcvuk.com/news/read/sony-...ference/094494

    The briefing will take place on Monday June 4th at 18:00 PST (that’s 02:00 on the morning of Tuesday June 5th in the UK).
    A bit soon to start discussing it I guess, but there's a chance some new games will be shown this week, so we might as well discuss them here.

    Awesome, I was hoping it would be late to avoid my classes.

    the other two on Monday:
    10:00 AM PDT - Microsoft
    3:00 PM PDT - Ubisoft

    Wonder if Konami is gonna have a one.

    Hoping for a big Vita blowout, hopefully a relaunch basically.

    Put up or shut up for Agent, nice demo of that new Naughty Dog game for sure. God of War reveal. Even if it's only a Vita God of War. Team Ico pull your finger out.

    2004 E3 all over again. PSPs and last PS3 games.

    God knows I'm done buying 360 and Wii games, think PS3 has a couple more stunners in it before it shuffles off this mortal coil. Maybe 3 or 4.

    I think I streamed it via GameTrailers last year. They streamed the whole All Access thing and it was in very nice HD quality (i.e: Not "internet HD"). I am hoping for a similar experience.

    As for Sony: It's funny how I absolutely hated portable announcements now all I want is VITA VITA VITA.

    Last Of Us GAMEPLAY.

    And of course, surprises. Preferably ones that haven't been 'leaked' at a Soho restaurant by a loud mouth employee.

    I'm predicting the same thing as last year, Nintendo having the most exciting conference because of new hardware showcases, Sony following second with most games we know about, and a few surprises, but there ace could be Vita this year. And MS having one or two surprises, but really nothing but Kinect and strong 3rd party support.

    Some stuff

    E3 is just around the corner, and we're already pumped for Sony's press conference.

    Sony is enticing the entire world by announcing their plans for this year's major industry event. First and foremost, they say they will announce "the future of gameplay and innovation," which has gotten people talking.

    Many like to assume this statement is in reference to the new PlayStation console, the PS4. Others just say they're talking about new software titles, which might make more sense at this particular moment in time. At any rate, Sony also says they'll show off over "20 new gaming experiences," which certainly implies some exclusive fireworks. You can probably expect a bunch of new game announcements for the Vita, as Sony continues to throw their weight behind the new portable.

    Furthermore, if you plan on attending, Sony will have over 200 playable kiosks for you to test out upcoming software. For the past few years, many have agreed that Sony won the day at E3 (for a variety of reasons); might they wow everyone again...?

    perhaps it would be a good idea to provide any links to live streams in your first post when the show starts

    That's the plan. It's why Viewing Options is in there.

    Overall, I do agree... they did have some high points, though... but never ANY real "WOW, that's fucking great" moments.
    Kept you waiting

    I bet they'll keep God of War Ascension's single player for the big finale. I don't expect any surprises at this point.

    That's because too much gets leaked before the show. If they'd plug those leaks a little better, they'd have some great presentations.

    Well this should be their good year because of how they've had the releases set up, where in the middle of the major low. 2011 being a big release year should mean them preparing games for 2013. Depending on who is getting ready for next-gen it could be a pretty good show.

    We know about new games from Sucker Punch, Quantic Dreams, 2 games with Guerrilla one being Killzone 4. Media Molecule should be working on something new, Ready at Dawn is rumored to be working on a PS3 game. Polyphony is up in the air.

    Santa Monica should be big enough to have 2 games going, that second game is likely a shooter though so not sure how people will react to that.

    Big question marks remain for the main studios in Europe and Japan.

    i actually look forward to the three weeks prior to E3 more than E3 itself... and i reckon that's a pretty good strategy and not unintended leaks

    Actually, it's not even that... the stuff that does get leaked (well, beside PS3 Slim and PSP Go) were "expected" stuff... For all I care, Agent was still the best announcement they made in the past years... and there was NO game to speak of, then... or even today.

    It's... yeah, we get 1000 sequels and then there's Tom Ricitello with Tiger Woods and Ubisoft with Assassin's Creed... but they have to have more "Gabe Newell" and "Kevin Butler" moments (well... not really butler, but rather game makers). Sony NEEDS to understand that the E3 pressers are what start viral and public PR movements (i.e. word of mouth)... and with "RIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIDGE RACER" and "ALL REAL TIME" and "ONE TO ONE CONTROLS", you do NOT get that. You get ridiculed... and nothing else.
    Kept you waiting

    Even Kevin Butler will get stale though...Phil Harrison was the man I looked forward to at E3. He communicated well, and presented himself as if he was speaking to press/consumers/developers alike, and genuinely made me believe there was someone who had a passion for Playstation products, and wanted only the best software to grace the system. That philosophy may still exist at the company but nobody seems to be stepping up to convey it.

    Best bet, get Kaz to present the entire presentation with a few devs coming out if they want to present there games personally. Show a ton of new games for Vita and show that titles are in the works for the platform and ensure consumers it's going to be a successful brand. Keep at least 2 titles complete secrets and reveal at e3 and then reveal what all of WWS is working on, and just to get PS buzz rolling, to a PS4 teaser.

    Time chart from Neogaf, MS and EA times based on SpikeTV/Gametrailer start times, From what I remember they did some reveals before the shows so who knows. I guess I'll handle the EA and Ubisoft threads again this year? Luckily all shows fit into my school schedule perfectly.
