In a world dominated by violent media, Americans are no more eager to go to war than they were in the 1980s or the 1960s or the 1940s. Hasn't it always been someone else's problem? The overwhelming majority would rather go on thinking it had nothing to do with them and there...

E3 Predictions: The Big Three

Posted on Tuesday, May 24 @ 12:19:26 Eastern by





Sony's up next, well, because they've got to put on one hell of a show after the shitty time they've been having lately. They need to do something dramatic in order to make up for nearly a month of PlayStation Network downtime. Not just for consumers, but for Sony's partners and the US Congress. Remember, it's not just gamers who are watching what goes down at these conferences. They also have a new handheld to show off, and it has been months since we heard anything about it. Last, and because they are in last (place), the PlayStation 3, despite being a great value and having a killer line-up, is just not doing enough (with the Move and elsewhere) to counter the effect Kinect has had on Xbox 360 sales.
 

PlayStation Network


First and foremost, Sony will address any concerns about the PlayStation Network. They have no choice. Hackers have bent them over, and fucked them again and again. (That's putting it lightly.) Sony needs to talk in detail about what they're doing to prevent attacks in the future and make people excited enough to come back to their service. Free games are great, but that Welcome Back package just isn't enough. Expect a host of new, aggressive security features for all of us to accept (and read, if we don't want to become a HumanCentiPS3.)

PS3


Sony's flagship console is going to get a price drop. To $199. Nintendo has a new console due next year that's going to trump the PlayStation 3 in power (we hope), which is the PS3's key selling point. It's time for Sony to get the PS3 to that key price point that drives mass-adoption. Without that, Sony will just have to be happy with third place this console generation.

The PlayStation 3's lineup is already the best in the industry. Uncharted 3, The Last Guardian, Resistance 3, Twisted Metal X, Dark Souls, Disgaea 4, inFamous 2--expect updates on these. But aside from what we already know, Sony will have some new, unannounced titles to debut. One game the staff here at GR have been pitching around is a new Syphon Filter. We haven't seen or heard from Gabe Logan in years. We're also thinking a new Sly Cooper or even God of War will be shown. A couple new IPs wouldn't hurt. We know Guerrilla Games are working on one, whatever that is.

NGP


The NGP is going to eat up a bulk of their conference. Details on when to expect its release will be discussed. Some launch titles will be shown, and they better be killer because the pool of titles for the regular PSP is dry. Key franchises will make an appearance; Modern Warfare 3 will be shown on the system. NGP is just a codename, so they're bound to reveal the official name that will make it on the package. Probably the PSP2.

PlayStation Move


Move was the star of last year's show, but a year later it is going to take a backseat. Way in the back. It hasn't performed to expectations, and its best title shown, Sorcery, hasn't made a blip since last E3. The motion-controller craze has fizzled a bit (thank god), and we don't expect to see much of a to-do about Move aside from maybe a minor price reduction on the hardware and support for upcoming titles that most people won't even bother using.

PlayStation Suite


While we don't expect too much in this realm of Sony's tech, we're sure that Sony will show off some plans for PlayStation Suite and the devices it will be featured on. Devices like the Xperia PLAY, and the S1 and S2 Android Honeycomb tablets due out later this year.
