WrathfulDwarf
Starts July 10-13.

You can see it on G4 or you can now see highlights on XBL!

So what games are you hoping we get to see more?

I really want MS to announce Killer Instinct 3 and more Halo 3 News. Maybe some GTA IV previews....

Schecter

I'm hoping for some new Brawl characters to be revealed, along with an official 07 release date, a new, 2D Metroid for the DS, an update on Namco's Swords of Legendia, and a new Star Fox game for the Wii.

Perhaps a real preview of Soul Calibur IV with in-game footage, and an announcement that 360s will be dropping to $250.

Lana
Release date for Phantom Hourglass would make me happy.

As well as confirmation of the rumored 360 price drop.

AstroFan
RESIDENT EVIL 5!!!!!


Id like some info on GTA's multiplayer, and I would like to see the visuals for Halo's campaign mode. Perhaps a date for Mario Galaxy, and reveal plans for some big franchises like Mario Kart or Star Fox(you know they are coming one day).

SaTsuJiN
I thought E3 was dead?... or was that another expo?

AstroFan
No, they just made it smaller. Kicked out all the fans and their creepy costumes and made it just about the games. lol

Superboy Prime
I really doubt they will be dropping the 360's price, but you never know.

I am dying to see more Mass Effect. *Drool*

They had to tone down because the event was turning into a fan convention with celebs and other stuff getting more attention than the actual gaming.

However,there will be an expo which will concentrate strickly to the fans later in the year.

Odd, that's the fake date we've been using for taking orders for it, too. Neat.

Start of the holiday season for retail. Of course it is stick out tongue

Kenshinswife
Most definetily hoping to see about the new final fantasies
* begins dancing*

Terror of Death
Phanto Hourglass made about 350,000 over in Japan in just two days. It must be a good game because Orcarina of Time was the only Zelda game that made those kind of numbers in a few days.

BackFire
I'm curious as to what the actual gameplay of Killzone 2 will look like, as it's been confirmed that it will make an appearance.

Also heard rumors of Gears of War 2 making an appearance in some form.

ah, nice... glad to see its not dead big grin

MadMel
ditto
hoping to see more SSBB and battalion wars - release dates and stuff
also, i hope they announce a new MK game, and maybe details on that SW game for wii

SaTsuJiN
I'm hoping for

-update on tekken 6 (the screens I saw, the models still look very 'tekken 5' still)

-update on Soul Calibur IV in the form of in-game

-update on Res Evil 5

-update on Super Street Fighter II : Turbo High Definition Remix laughing out loud

-if they do bring up another MK.. I hope the series goes back to its roots

-hope playmore releases garou : mark of the wolves 2 (the game was finished but never released anywhere)

-proof of PS3's bogus superior AI claim when it comes to Assassin's Creed

Maybe we'll even see some new franchises spawn smile

Violent2Dope
I'm hopin for info on SSBB, Halo 3, GTA4, maybe a new RE game, and MGS4.

Swe_Bum
I Like too see some more Starcraft 2, Metroid Prime 3, SSBB, maybe some new DS games, A new MK, Giutar hero 3, and I would hope to see a Diablo 3 no expression

Violent2Dope
Wasn't MK:Armagedon the last MK? Oh, and a new Diablo would be nice, but it's highly unlikely.

Swe_Bum
Yeah.. but a new more original MK i don't like the new one so much.
Yeah would be weird now when they work on Starcraft 2.

General G
I wan to see Halo 3, Halo Wars, Tom Clancy's Endwar.

and the likelyhood is far better than you think wink

So what site will have the best coverage of E3? They don't happen to have any official site?

Morridini
Finally finished watching the Microsoft Press Conference at: http://www.gamespot.com/video/0/6174084/videoplayerpop?rgroup=e32007_live

I found the first half to be a bit boring, with them not saying anything new other then "oooh, we have rock music, we earn billions, Wii and PS3 sux, we rock wohooo, famous sports dude noone outside the US have heard of" etc. But the second half was much better.
Mass Effect looks good (even though all we got was a new trailer).
Lost Odyssey was a game I had never heard of that now looks interesting.
The Resident Evil 5 teaser trailer looked interesting, wonder where they are.
Assassin's Creed finally had a gameplay demo ready, although some things didn't look completely polished.
Unfortunately no info about Too Human.
Looking forward to the rest of E3, what did the rest of you think?

Morridini
Argh didn't manage to catch the beginning of the Nintendo Press Conference so have to wait for it to finish, then for the full Conference to be ready for watching.

pinkfloydkor
they were jst talking about sales and how the wii and ds are so popular and how nintendo really is going to expand the gaming wrld to all ages

and then they gave dates for SSBB and SMG AND announced that mario kart wii is coming 1st quarter 08

pretty exiting

Morridini
Any place to get to see it streamed live? I thought I found an url at G4 but now I can't find it again.

pinkfloydkor
i searched "e3 07" in google and went to the g4 site

it says it has live stream, but i didnt look at it or anything so i dont know

http://www.g4tv.com/e32007/index.html

Morridini
They say they have it but they clearly lye as they only send you to a page where you can see the Microsoft conference.

pinkfloydkor
it comes with a specifically designed wheel that looked like it had buttons on the back, but it might have just been grip pads or something

its a white wheel and the game will feature online play in races and in battle mode

With no info about such things going around how could I know that a conference that in total lasts 1 hour and 20 min (aprox) would be spread across 4 hours and 3o min?

I assumed since you were watching some of it on Television, your TV Guide clearly showed how it was all set up as did mine. It showed when it started and ended and the information explained the 2 conferences that it ecompassed.

No Big Deal now really.

Notice my Location. Not an american, so no TV guide or any TV coverage of it. All I had to go by was what I got from G4, gamespot, gametrailers etc etc. Plus the 8 or 9 hour difference kinda mess things up now and then.

new halo 3 trailer ftw!!!!big grin

WrathfulDwarf
Okay, there is quite a few games missing here....

Alan Wake, Spore, Indiana Jones from last year....where are they?

General Kaliero
I thought G4 got an exclusive look at Spore this year.

And wasn't it majorly delayed anyway? Or worse, "indefinitely on hold"?

pinkfloydkor
yeah they got an exclusive look at it

it looked.....interesting i guess

InnerRise
Spore won't be at E3 this year.

There's nothing new to show so they didn't feel the need to bring their people down there and take away from their work on the game so they decided to keep all of their people working on the game.

I assume they didnt show the game because it was just be a kick in the nuts for fans of Will Wright's games because they just delayed it awhile back.

It's delayed, and not put on hold. The game is coming out.

Morridini
Well I would rather be kept in the dark and get a great game then bugging the makers with demands of interviews and info and ending up with delays and rushed games.

pinkfloydkor
uhhh....

i saw a 3 minute clip of it on G4 and somebody that worked on the game was talking about it

They dont bug the actual programmers, artists and such, they bug the communications people and press agents.

The programmers are still working on the game if they have it at E3. It's the support staff like marketers, press agents and communication people who are at E3, and maybe Will Wright.

WrathfulDwarf
Here is a picture from today at E3 2007.

Kero_Co
I think this is the worst E3 so far, I think there are too many 07 games shown off and not enough 08-09 games, which is why I usually watch it. There were a few great surprises, but it was way less than normal. Also, the G4 coverage sucks. G4 has spent the past two days talking about the same games over and over and over again while smaller games that need the attention, like Nights, are being completely ignored. After looking at the list of games at E3 at IGN, what G4 had dished out so far is miniscule by comparison and there is no way they can catch up. I think Kojima said it best, "I hope that my E3 will return next year."

Morridini
So far 08 seems like a really dry game year if this E3 is anything to go by.

pinkfloydkor
yeah i agree, the few surprises they had were good, but not good enough


i was really looking forward to seeing some new footae from Nights and seeing other small games

and i was shocked at how little 08 09 release dates i saw

there were close to none

General G
I couldn't find anything, was anything on Halo Wars or Endwar released?

Morridini
EndWar, nothing, Halo Wars.....I could swear there was something, but can't remember or find anything.

Refused
If Metroid Prime 3 controls like everyone says it controls, then color me gay for that game.

General Kaliero
I'm betting everyone's holding off on the big '08 games until the "New E3" or TGS. Unveiling new games is more for the fans than the press, anyway.

I dont think people should mind that they're isnt any big games coming out next year (or atleast until after summer 08) because they'll probalby still playing all the ****ing games being released this fall.

I own 360, Wii, PC, and a DS and I have no idea what game to get first.

Madden, Bioshock, Metriod Prime 3, Mario Galaxy, Zelda DS, Mass Effect, GTA4, Halo 3, Compay Of Heroes EXP Pack, Call of Duty 4, Area 51 Blacksite, Unreal Tournment 3, Half Life Episode 2 with Portal and TF2 (yah!!!!), Super Smash Bros Brawl, Kane & Lynch.....and thats all of the top of my head. I assume they'res more.

Ill be playing all these until atleast mid March of next year. Why cant these bastards release some games in the summer. Only 1 game has caught my interest since I dont know when, and that was the Darkness.

My bad, I was reading from a European site. It's out in the USA on 12/3/07 but Europeans must wait until 2008.

They're were some new games announced. They just werent talked about.

The thing is is that alot of the games shown and are going to be released this fall havnt been really looked at. Games like Assassins Creed, Crysis, and others havnt been played yet. That's why I think most companies are showing those games.

InnerRise
Well yeah, I know some new games were announced for this year, but nothing special and pretty much nothing new for 2008. We've seen Assassins Creed and Crysis played in front of us and we've known about these 2 games for ages along with others. They really didn't have that BIG SURPRISE or some GREAT UNKNOWN GAME.

We pretty much were aware of almost everything that was shown.

Anata wa wakarimasu ka.....

Smasandian
They're is rarely any unknown that gets announced at E3. Somewhere, somebody knows that they're is a game being made. With all the other major game conferences, its happens on on a occassion that a big game gets announced at E3.

I think companies showed games that everybody wanted to know about and see actually footage instead of a crappy trailer and an a screenshot.

Remember, E3 is not for the fans, its for the press. That's why its there. We saw Killzone 2 finally played, with saw a bunch of other games finally played.

AstroFan
I havent bothered looking at any videos of Killzone, does it look like anythign special?

Smasandian
Yeah, the graphics are damn good though. Probably some of the best out there.

Killzone is not the system seller at all, especially considering the original game wasnt that great anyways.

BlaxicanHydra
I remember when ti first came out, and people everyware were like "z0mg Killzone! It may be the game that finally surpasses Halo and Metroid Prime!

lawtflz.

I agree with this statement. It looks good...but claiming that it looks as good as the first trailer is fanboy wanking to match expectations.

RE 5 better be the best in the series. I can't believe they pushed it to 2009. miffed

Does anyone remember how long Smash Brothers Dominated Game Cube game sales?

If brawlers is just like melee AND they make improvements....this game may do the same as Melee...

Also, Killzone is PS3's Halo. Halo 3 will do better.

The PS3 world that the CEO's were showing off in their show was pretty cool. I do not have a PS3 yet as I was waiting for the price to come down...now that is has come down...I might buy it.

This year's E3 did not have the pizzaz that it has had in the past...I think they should bring back the public to E3.

More to come as I review more from E3.

pinkfloydkor
yeah last time i checked, melee is still 30 dollars in stores

and it was really early in the GC's life as well

MadMel
wasnt it a launch?

BlaxicanHydra
If Killzone 2 is the PS3's only answer to Halo 3 then Sony is truly and fully f*cked.

If I'm not mistaken, wasnt Smash Bros released really early in GC year, and was pretty much the only game that was decent?

Public was never let into E3. They just increased security.

yeah i dont think it was for release, but i remember getting it like a few months later

Saying that is the same thing as saying that killzone 2 is the only game PS3 has going for itself.

Gamecube sold a hell of a lot of software. So is the PS3...just not as much as the other consoles right now...

There are a butt load of games being released for the PS3.

I just saw actual gameplay of heavenly sword and it looks badass. I am an avid High Definition gamer and this game looked beautiful in Standard Definiation on the G4 E3 coverage!

I have bought games in the past solely based off of how beautiful they were...lame but I have done it.

From what I can take so far from E3, Nintendo is going to continue to dominant more than ever...Microsoft may peak pretty soon here, and Sony may yet pull this off.

No, it wasnt.

It was industry event and always is. The only public that was allowed in are the ones who sneaked thier way in.

But as for the show, it's a not for the public.

Morridini
Smas is correct, it was never open for the public, however that didn't stop people from getting in. It's not that hard to make a fake news-reporter ID, especially if you are from far away countries (like Norway) where you just have to make up a name.

InnerRise
The point I'm making is that the public, whether legitimately or not, DID GET INTO E3 and the member above that made the comment about preferring how it use to be was understandable.

Why was this years E3 so different? Because the public....the fans.....the booth babes, etc. were not there........the PUBLIC.

Anata wa wakarimasu ka.....

Morridini
So by the "public" you mean the "public press", as this year only special invited press were allowed inside.

Smasandian
I'm sorry Inner, but I said the public wasnt allowed in, and they're not allowed in.

Now you say that the E3's of before was made public because they squirmed their way in. That's true, but overall, it was still an industry event.

You cant say its a public event because its not. If somebody sneaked, good for them, but it aint an public event.

This year was entirely the same. The difference was that they had tighter security measures and different locations instead of an centrilized location.

InnerRise
We can always agree to disagree then.

Except for the fact that you say this year was entirely the same, which it definitely was not.

And I never called it a Public Event, so what's the problem if what I said was actually correct as you to acknowledged.

anata wa wakarimasu ka.....

Smasandian
You said that the public was allowed in.

The public is not allowed in. If they got into E3 by sneaking in, good for them, but they're not suppose to be there.

E3 wasnt the same, but having it as an industry event and no public is just exactly the same as every other E3 event.

Zen2nd
Here is what is said about E3 2005

"E3 is a trade event, meaning that it's closed to people that are not involved in the industry and people who are under 18 years old. "

Reasons for getting a ticket to 2005 were as follows:

Primary Business:
Consumer Electronics
Computer Hardware/Software
Video Store
Toy, Hobby Store
Catalog Showroom
Mass Merchant
Department Store
Book Store
Mail Order/Catalogs and Clubs
Super Store Chain
Online Retailer
Importer/Exporter

For 2007 the only way to get in was to get an invite from them.

Aww, man, if I'd had my current job at this time last year or two years ago, I could have gotten away with going to E3?

I'm bumping the thread (no need for sticky) now, since the rumors have already sprung.

Rumors so far:

Xbox 360 Price cut.
Guitar Hero 4
EA taking over the world
New controller for the PS3
Duke Nukem
KI3 announcement?

E3 2008 starts July 11-13. This year it will be very different.

Guitar Hero 4 isn't a rumor, it's confirmed. It's coming out in the fall and is called Guitar Hero: World Tour.
