    • E3 or no E3 - doesn't really matter anymore. Sony, EA, Square etc could release a digital showcase the week before or after E3.

      When it comes to the way game previews are covered, I think the games media will be a bit more subdued going forward. I think they embarrassed themselves with the fawning pre-release coverage of Cyberpunk.

      That's how I feel. It being digital just means it is an unnecessarily organized by schedule event. Kind of pointless, just do it yourself in that case, pick your own time and date.
      The Cyberpunk thing I won't hold against E3 though. Plenty of games get overhyped and are underwhelming, while others slip completely under the radar. That can happen at any time of the year. Marketing is what it is. It's up to consumers to filter out the obvious noise.

    • Yeah I'd be fine with the big three just having their own individual directs.

      What I hope all of them do though, is just show game reels (not an ID@Xbox trash format). And don't show any games that are not coming out either in 2021, or Q1 2022. If it's almost ready, show it, if it's far away, leave it out.

      Yes they had to do that last year. It was fine.

      😂😂😂 Very wishful thinking there. Long-term hype is an E3 tradition. Besides, a new console war just started, gotta pull out and show all the future threats to build up the hype!
      What do you want next, you hippie? Everyone singing Kumbaya while holding hands? In-game footage instead of pretendered video? Transparency on what is an exclusive vs. a timed exclusive? 😄

    • I wonder if Bethesda still does their own showcase or if they just fold that into the XBox one...

      😄 A guy can dream!

      They're all bad for it, but MS and Nintendo are probably the worst.

      MS: Here's a pre-rendered video of a game, gameplay probably won't even reflect this, release date TBD
      Nintendo: Here's a damn logo of a game you suckers, "Now starting development"

      Like wtf... At least have a solid ratio then, of soon to be released vs long away. Say 75% of the games shown will be released within a year, 25% for hype.

      The few times I was truly suckered by an E3 presentation, it was by Ubisoft with Watch Dogs and The Division, and by Gearbox with Aliens: Colonial Marines. And it wasn't because I was new to gaming or anything, but it was more because it seemed like a plausible achievement given the tech that was available at the time or coming down the pipeline...

      Now whenever I see a "live gameplay" video being presented, I know to adjust my expectations.

      I can't wait to see how some of the cringe moments play out over a livestream chat though... we will never get the Ravi Drums Wii music moments, but I'm sure there will be some Zoom meeting call awkwardness to come...

      All rumour right now, and possibly a timed exclusive anyway.
      Sony seems pretty intent on doing these timed exclusive deals with big third party developers these days so it wouldn't be too much of a surprise.

      They've already got Project Athenia , Final Fantasy 16, FF7 Redux, Deathloop and GhostWire Tokyo.
      They were also allegedly in talks to get exclusivity for Starfield before MS Swooped in.

      Personally I don't like this strategy. Microsoft tried this with a bunch of games at the onset of last generation and rightfully faced a bunch of backlash (Titanfall, PvZ:GW and Tomb Raider:ROTR immediately come to mind).

      It's crazy how busy Remedy is these days, they went from releasing like 2 games over 10 years to potentially having 5 games in development

      Even their best game (Alan Wake) would be a low-tier level exclusive.
      Never played an Alan Wake game, but Control was a bit mediocre to me. It really dragged by the end.

      Not a fan of anything Kojima has done really but this would probably be a big deal to a lot of ride or die playstation folks.
      He's been on XBox for a while, like MGSV (both games) and even the MGS HD collection. Death Stranding was exclusive to PS4 but like all his stuff, for a niche audience. With his new studio, maybe he is better off getting his games on more consoles.

    • I liked Alan Wake. Didn't like Control.

      Wonder what Kojima is up to with Xbox. Maybe it's that rumoured episodic Google Stadia project he was wanting to do, but didn't work out. It would probably be a fit for GP if he was targeting Stadia.

      I hope it's nothing like Death Stranding. I thought that game sucked.

      Aw you've gone I take it? I've wanted to go myself but it never worked for me, maybe some day.
      TBH I wish it was in Vegas like it was when it first started (CES days I guess). I have little desire to visit LA and it seems like too much of a zoo.

    • Konami's biggest source of income comes from Pachinko machines at casinos instead of making AAA budget games.

      Aside from Pro Evolution Soccer and some Digimon mobile games, Konami does not really make games anymore
      since firing Hideo Kojima. The Metal Gear Survival spinoff which was made after Kojima's firing was awful.

      There are rumours that BluePoint is working on a Metal Gear Solid remake (not the over the top Twin Snakes remake on GameCube).
      Silent Hill and other Intellectual Properties Konami owns were rumored to be up for sale last year.

      https://screenrant.com/e3-2021-konami-g ... nt-cancel/

      So the question is whether the rumoured Metal Gear Solid or Silent Hill remake is going to be a thing after all.

      I think E3 as a live gaming event will be done after the pandemic.
      Companies are pulling out because the cost of renting the L.A. Convention Centre and doing events for 3-5 days is expensive advertisement and perhaps not
      as cost effective as streaming a video announcement over Youtube or Twitch like Nintendo elects to do now.

      Sometimes game companies do not have enough footage to show, or end up showing new trailers for games that are still not close to being done yet a few years in a row.

      The irony is they upgraded the graphics of Metal Gear 3 for their pachinko machine. Looks great

      I still remember last time I went to Vegas, getting excited for a millisecond when landing at the airport and seeing a Konami building from the plane. Then I remembered they had transitioned to gambling...
