Congrats to @i_smell on winning the EA banner contest. Apparently, the mods are all suckers for that old school EA logo. And if you are not, then you are no longer welcome here!

The Official E3 2013 Electronic Arts Press Conference Discussion

It's officially E3 time, duders! If you haven't experienced the insanity of E3 before, the show starts off with press conferences from each of the three console makers as well as a few of the largest publishers in the industry. These presentations are prime real estate for game announcements, debut trailers, live gameplay demonstrations, and meme origins.

In an attempt to keep the E3 shenanigans organized, the mods institute these official discussion threads for each conference so that everybody has a go-to place to discuss them before, during, and after the show.

Keep Discussions On Topic

This thread is exclusively for the general discussion of the EA press conference. Only discussion of the EA press conference is allowed. Discussion involving the other company's conferences should be taken to their respective threads (once they're posted). And don't even think about going off-topic or derailing the thread with your predictions for your local soap box derby race.

Specific Announcements

Gangsta

E3 is THE place for announcing never before seen games. It's exciting, fast-paced stuff and we're all enthusiastic to start talking about all the new toys. But, please keep in-depth discussions about specific games in their respective forums. For more information about how to help us keep things organized, go check out the E3 2013 and You! thread.

To help you get where you need to go to talk about anything announced or shown during this press conference, we have created a list of them right here:

Despite the insanity of E3, keep in mind that the general site rules still apply. So, don't be a dick. If you need a refresher on to conduct yourself like an upstanding citizen of the Giant Bomb community, check out the FAQ.

Where Can I Watch?

If you know of any others, let me know!

#4 Posted by Benny (1947 posts) -

So my predictions are: Mirror's Edge 2, Dragon Age 3, some game set in the Mass Effect universe and sporrrrrrrrrrts.

#5 Posted by CitizenCoffeeCake (462 posts) -

Hell of sports, gag.

#6 Edited by WeaponBoy (160 posts) -

We're gonna see the following:

BF4 (hurf durf), NFS: Rivals, Mirror's Edge 2, Dragon Age 3 and possibly some sort of ME4 teaser. Possibly also some stuff about Titanfall to remind us that that game is an EA Partner's game

Oh, and sports. I LOVE SPORT.

#7 Edited by jimmyfenix (3805 posts) -

how many of these will be xbone exclusives ? none because i think that would have happened at the MS Conference

#8 Edited by eloj (488 posts) -

Some driving game is sure to pop up. More Battlefield 4 (sigh. I like BF, but stop showing fucking SP and try to do something interesting with the MP). Drink every time they say "Frostbite"

Yeah... yeah.

I would actually laugh uncontrollably if they brought out Mass Effect 4.

#14 Posted by Hunter5024 (5505 posts) -

I always get super excited for the EA press conference, and then I rememember that 20 minutes of it is already devoted to sports. The Dragon Age 3 information had better be substantial.

#15 Posted by TopSteer (634 posts) -

I'm hopeful for Skate 4 but I fear that series is dead now.

#16 Posted by masterpaperlink (1829 posts) -

i will happily sit though 95% crap as long as mirrors edge 2 is there

#17 Edited by WeaponBoy (160 posts) -

Oh yeah, also Star Wars.

I am also looking forward to much gnashing of teeth once Titanfall on PC is declared Origin-exclusive. :V

#18 Edited by PillClinton (3290 posts) -

I'm really just hopeful for some damn new IP! But the main focus is likely gonna be mostly on familiar stuff; Sports, BF4, DA3, maybe something Dead Space (kinda hope not), maybe something Mass Effect (also, kinda hope not), Mirror's Edge 2 (would be cool). I don't know how many surprises are gonna come out of this one; I imagine far less than the following two press conferences.

It helped kill Tony Hawk and then died even faster.

#44 Posted by Winternet (8000 posts) -
