I'm so pumped for this year's E3 and I can't wait to see some next-generation goodness.

What do you think will blow your mind this E3?

ED: Oh nooo - I'm the first post. Sorry to be a bummer!

Here - the positive side is @rorie will be manning the chat all day, so expect a lot of puppies!

--

I expect:

  • Microsoft will blow me away with their press conference & will probably have the best conference (which will just make me sad, since I'm not buying their console)
  • Sony will do OK (and by doing so will be good enough for me to get a PS4 since I'm already sold on it)
  • The 3rd Parties will just be re-iterating announcements made before and during the Big 2 today
  • Nintendo will be Nintendo

I am so hyped to be proven wrong about my bad feeling about this E3!! (completely serious - I can't wait, and seriously hope this'll be awesome!!)

ED: Also, +points for not conforming to the Watitng expectations!!

I just hope we get a bunch of surprises, but I know that ain't likely, but I already feel like we have seen too many game announcements before E3 even started. So I just want to be surprised and see something new for PS4.

Well apparently Xbone policies will get even worse. Looking forward to that. I'm prepared to be happily surprised by some games.

I'm throwing money down for wildcard Minecraft 2 appearance feat. Edmund McMillen, presented by David Spade.

Nintendo will be revealing new Pokemon X and Y info. That's all I really care about. Also, KI 3, if it happens. Also, Sony's press conference, I guess.

Im still waiting for that next gen game that you say " Fuck! i cant wait for that! " or " thats the future right there!". I just want to be surprised i guess. Sony could walk away form e3 with a huge win or some people that where already sold on the ps4 could rethink it, it all comes down to the severity of their DRM and that price. Its gonna be tight.

side note: where are you guys watching the streams? in the GB chat/gametrailer/gamespot?

@selfconfessedcynic: Ever since the microsoft reveal i had the same bad feeling

If both consoles have the same DRM that everyone is talking about, I'll probably quit from consoles and go PC exclusive.

@randiolo: PS4 won't be mentioning a single piece of their DRM policies all show, according to the purportedly-reputable CBOAT leak.

I can't abandon my bi-yearly Naughty Dog hit - but what WILL happen if both have terribad DRM is I'll go from having 50-60 console games this gen to about 10 games next gen. Most of my purchases will be the PC version.

Here's hoping our fears are unfounded.

I'm not expecting mind blowing of any kind really, just expecting to see great games with considerable potential.

The only thing that might excite me is Battlefield 4 being the real reincarnation of Battlefield 2 (multiplayer design and aspects), but even then, I'm not a clan kind of person anymore, and playing Battlefield without a clan is boring.

Man now that you mention it, thinking about missing all those future Naughty Dog games really bums me out.
Let's hope that what ever changes the next consoles will bring will be for the better.

Eat tree, video games.

I don't know, I'd dig a teaser or something for Fallout 4. That'd be probably the only real big thing to get me hyped about eat tree this year.

I'm really curious to just see how Microsoft and Sony spin things at their press conferences. I would really like a complete picture of launch day expectation from both of them but I know that won't happen.

I'm also extremely excited for the Ubisoft press conference. Not because of the games (ha!) but because of the train wreck that was last year's show from them. I can't wait to see how they top it this year. Having not slept last night will probably make it even better.

Personally, given the fact that the xbone is still months away, Apple could possibly disappoint me the most since I'm looking to buy a new macbook and accessories. If their (expected) hardware refresh is underwhelming, I might not be spending 2000 dollars this week.

Or was I supposed to take your question in as some sort of humorous slight?

A little bit. I'm actually quite interested to see where they take iOS 7, it'll be a large part of what I base my decision on as I'm thinking of replacing my regular sized iPad for either the new iPad Mini in September or the upcoming Nexus 7 refresh.

@cirdain: thanks looks like I can watch Sony Ubisoft and in Nintendo I am not getting up at 430 am to watch micrsofts train wreck. Oh we'll I am not buying an Xbox One any way I don't trust micrsoft to maintain the severs for a country like New Zealand. Should be a fun day tommorow though.

@sooty: Yeah, it'll be at least interesting to see whether or not iOS under Jony Ive's direction means anything apart from slightly different aesthetics.

This is going to be a tough marathon for us on GMT and beyond.

Super excited for pretty much all the conferences yet I have no idea how I will afford all the crazy shit coming out over the next 6 months.

I'm more stoked for Apple. How come Activision, Zenimax, & 2K don't have conferences, but EA and Ubisoft do? Anyways, with PS Vita, Move, PSP Go, Music Unlimited, PS Mobile/Xperia Play, PSTV 24" 3D Display being Sony's most recent gaming products, I don't have high hopes for PS4.

Sony at 3:00 am like always but I got my energy drinks ready to get through this. The only thing I'm going to miss is Nintendo Direct and frankly I can live with that because I'm never going to buy a WiiU. I'm hoping that Sony solidifies my tendency to buy a PS4 but of course I'm hoping there will be some awesome games in general.

E3, Last of Us and Man of Steel. It's a pretty kickass time of the year.

Going to be having my traditional E3 beers. Worried that the Sony press conference is at 2am, I'll either have fallen asleep or be drunk and say something stupid. Still, it'll be a hoot!

Hopefully they give me a reason to stay awake. Bring it on!

Another year, another E3. My understanding is that the stuff won't be doing anything until the day zero recap right? I thought I heard them mention something about the gamespot stream?

Sorry if I'm missing the obvious - but are GB doing their own stream (with the commentary etc.)?

There's no countdown on the site or...anything... so I'm assuming not. Thought I'd check.

All of the information for their after hours streams is on the front page on "Coming up on Giant Bomb..."

If you mean the actual conferences, the GB Chat will be open and it will be displaying GameSpot's feed. No commentary.
