E3 2007 is just around the corner, so the thread MUST be 2 steps ahead. After each conference, I'm going to have the poll edited to allow voting for specific games that were shown in the said conference.

Just so you guys know, you dont JUST have to vote. Discuss anything related to E3. Just saying since it seems like this is turning into a vote&respond thread.

Sony, being that they're in last place right now and a couple major announcements are expected. Killzone is also one of the highlights, even if it is behind closed doors. MS places a close second, though.

I wonder how all the media outlets are going to be covering it this year, considering it's been sized-down pretty good. I would keep the tube on G4 and watch their coverage, but the network's went to hell over the past couple of years, hardly anything videogame-related left on there.

There was loads of rumours of a leaked report on what MS was going to do at E3 - i cant remember what it said but i know it sounded exciting so my vote went to them.
All in all i'm hoping for some GTA4 news mainly. Some brand new games would be interesting too smile.gif

To be honest, this year I have little interest in any. Infact, a more truthful statement would be: I have equal lack of interest in all three.

Nintendo if I had to choose.

IGN had a poll like this, and when I voted Sony was leading by a while. I for one am interested in Sony, some might say that's because I like eggs, but I like to think that I vote Sony because I own a PS3 & PSP.

I'm really curious to see what Killzone PS3 looks like. I still occasionally play the original Killzone's campaign, and I'm really wondering what Guerrilla Games is capable of producing on a next-gen console.

I think it'll live up to my expectations, so I'm looking forward to it. smile.gif

I'm most looking forward to Microsoft's, however it will be interesting to see what Sony have planned. Nintendo's should be good if they have some new stuff on the big titles: Mario Galaxy, Super Smash Bros. Brawl, Metroid etc.

Also, for the past month or so I've been playing a lot of S.T.A.L.K.E.R., and the devs have said they've got some new news planned for E3 so I'm looking forward to that - I'm betting it's about an expansion pack/sequel. Which is great because this game has SO much potential. It's a shame that so much was cut out of the final game and it's looks like they're trying to bring it all back to make the game what they envisioned it to be.

edit-- New MGS4 trailer, with english voice acting. wow.gif

As i'm a 360 owner i'd probably look forward more to Microsoft's press conference more, but it's always nice to see what the other consoles have to offer.

As there have been a few 360 release day titles that have still not yet come out, i'd like to see how far they have gone with the developing of the games and then giving the release dates.

Maybe a bit of new information about the GTA 4 episodic content. wow.gif

Wouldn't surprise me if MS dropped the price, didn't they do the same with the original Xbox after a price drop on the PS2?

Nintendo's is always great since they're showing some old-school crowd favorites that always gets excitement, but the new Smash Bros. (w/Solid Snake) is going to be something to watch for imo.

they later clarified the 380 games is worldwide. NA will see about 140.


i want to see what all three have to offer. see what sony is going to pull out of their hat, see what microsoft has for 08, see what mini-game collections are coming to the wii.

oh, and i NEEEEEEED more PGR 4 info, hopefully a september release date, and a demo on xbl during E3. that game looks like pure sex wrapped in bacon

Hopefully a new lineup of classics from MS would be good, theres a couple of old games i'm slightly interested in but the price tag is off putting, a classic version would be good

I'm looking forward to Sony's

I want to see just what they have to say about the PS3. I also want to see how they'll try and put a positive spin on all of this. I also hope for more giant enemy crabs.

I really don't care for Microsofts. Just more shooters, and more minigames from Nintendo.

But if I had to vote based on the games they will be showing, I'd say Nintendon't, for Smash.

Well, to elaborate further:

Microsoft comes in first for two big reasons. Number one: Alan Wake. I'm actually awaiting Alan Wake more than I am Halo 3, which is a GIGANTIC deal coming from me. Alan Wake looks like its seriously going to shake up the industry and looks to put Remedy, which did Max Payne, above "just another shooter developer" status. Showcasing absolutely revolutionary technology, and, from the sounds of things, absolutely revolutionary gameplay that has to do with using actual light as your defense. Hopefully we'll see some gameplay, and possibly a release date.

Second, everything else coming from Microsoft: Too Human, Bioshock, Halo 3, Mass Effect, Halo Wars, GTA4, XBLA games, I could go on and on.


Second is Sony, simply because I want to hear what they have to say about their performance on moving consoles, and how they're going to put their spin all over it. Also, they will probably show off Killzone and MGS4. As far as I'm concerned, MGS4 is the only thing Sony still has going for it, and it will be interesting to see if they'll give new info on it. But I'm not gonna hold my breath. Chances are, we'll see a new 5-10 minute trailer, perhaps in a new location, with Japanese voice acting, that ends with a startling cliff-hanger to get all the fans excited again.


Nintendo comes in last simply because they will undoubtedly be showing a bunch of games I respect, but nothing I would really want to run out and buy a Wii for. Sorry, but the 900th installment of Super Mario, and Metroid don't get me all giddy like it used to. And the last thing I need is a collection of mini-games when I can pop in World of Warcraft and play something really deep and complex for 12 hours.

On that, I'd like to say Nintendo. They got the people to buy the Wii. Now I want to see what they will do to get people to buy games.

Yeah Alan Wake is gonna be awesome, I signed up to an Alan Wake forum and made some fan art for it back in the day. Too bad it's now being developed by Micrososft Game Studios (name?), so it wont be coming the the PS3.

A sign of things to come? We'll have to wait and see. If they were to release it on the 360, I'd expect it to be released a year after or so.

It probably isnt going to happen, But id like to see if Sony come up with anything to challenge MS on the episode downloads for GTA4.
This will be the first joint release, and already Xbox users will get so much more than Sony users, 50million MS paid for the content, thats pocket change to both companies. Maybe its just me, but Sony must have something going for them regarding extra's for GTA.
So I voted Sony! smile.gif
