It's a terrifying thought, but E3 is next week and for the first time in years we are heading into the conference with two new, next generation consoles on display. What are your hopes for this years E3? What are you hoping to see? What are you expecting to see?
I think that of 'the big three', Sony is heading into E3 in the most comfortable position. Microsoft's poor reveal of the Xbox One somehow put its slightly-less-bad reveal into perspective. It has games to show and an audience that's swelling towards it.
Microsoft has a lot more to prove, but it is my belief that it will most likely steal the show. Execs have hinted that, internally, Microsoft has invested $1 billion in games for the new console. I expect we'll see some of them . I'm hoping there will be some crackers in there.
Nintendo? Well, I fully expect Nintendo to reveal a new 3D Mario game for the Wii U. It will probably be incredible. That said, I can't help but feel as though Nintendo isn't treating E3 with the same gravitas as Microsoft and Sony. Nintendo has the greatest potential to surprise us but, at the same time, the greatest potential to show absolutely nothing of consequence at all.
What are your thoughts?
