Annual EA Conference:

Pre-E3 2017 - announced so far:

- Microsoft to reveal the XBox Scorpio onstage.
- Nintendo to feature Super Mario Odyssey and it will be playable at the event.

Reggie Fils-Aime on Nintendo's plans for E3:
“Our various E3 activities will showcase the next steps for Nintendo Switch, from a summer of social competitive gaming to a holiday season highlighted by a milestone Mario adventure,” said Reggie Fils-Aime, President and COO, Nintendo of America. “With Nintendo Treehouse: Live at E3, fans at home can watch in-depth gameplay of Nintendo Switch and Nintendo 3DS games launching this year.”

Past recent E3s:

E3 2015 had the best content and games announcements.
Improbable announcements of FF7 Remake, Shenmue 3, The Last Guardian even though it ended up being not as good as Shadow of the Coloussus, etc.

E3 2016 had most of its big reveals leaked a few days before the conferences (PS4 Pro, God of War reboot with Norse Mythology,
Sony PS4 exclusive Spider-man game).


Top 10 countdown of the all-time worst or most embarrassing E3 moments:

Any RFD peeps heading to E3 this year? I'm going as public since they opened up tickets this year.
Expensive I know, but it was one of those bucket lists items just to be there.
Anybody got hookups for attending press conferences? ;)

Unless Bethesda BS'ed the Switch Skyrim screens/footage thus far, we can already say pretty confidently that it's the Special Edition. No mods is a pretty obvious given though. I also can't see Super Mario Odyssey being delayed as it's flatly their entire holiday season. If we don't see whatever Retro has been working on, the studio is in serious trouble. They haven't sole-developed a game in seven years, and their last project was DKC: Tropical Freeze in 2014.

Bethesda couldn't confirm nor deny that Skyrim on Switch is going to special edition. If it was going to be the "Special Edition", Nintendo and Bethesda would have touted that confidently. I have a feeling it will be marketed something completely different....perhaps labelled as "Switch Edition".

I could see Mario Odyssey releasing in November. But I have a feeling it will be delayed till Spring. Nintendo is feeling confident about the Switch, they don't need to rush Mario for Fall. With the Mario/Rabbids title releasing this year, they may want to space out their Mario releases. Fire Emblem Warriors and a couple of remasters could fill in the release gap.

I believe Retro will show something this E3. Their long absence is why I'm predicting they will announce two games during this conference - a new IP and a Metroid game.

Im mainly hyped for Nintendo's press conference this year.
I want to know what Nintendos plans are for the virtual console and I want an announcement for a Pokemon Sun/Moon port to Nintendo Switch.

Also give me more info on Sea of Thieves including a release date, The ongoing beta is :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: and I want to know what fun stuff they have planned for that game.

The 15,000 public E3 passes that were up for sale to the public have already sold out.
The tickets were around $250 USD each for the event (admission for all 4 days included).



Only the business VIP passes (must be able to prove that it is work related) are still being sold for $995 USD for each ticket.

"- Ability to change PSN names (feature only available on PS4)"

What are you basing that on?

Excited for surprises.

I don't care much about what Microsoft is going to do - Scorpio doesn't appeal to me, and unless they reveal a long list of games that aren't just their yearly shooters, they've lost me.

Sony always has great thing to announce...that are four years out. So it's good to see what's in the future, but annoying because you won't be able to play them for a long while. Hoping they actually announce upcoming games. I'd be surprised if PS VR gets a mention - if it doesn't, consider it dead like the Vita.

Nintendo is who I'm most excited for, and I think most people are as well. There's a lot riding on what they're going to do here. Too long of a list of things I'd be excited for, so let's see.

Hmmm. Sounds familiar.
So there's a major unannounced AAA that Microsoft has marketing on. Not bad Xbox. Bring on E3.
I hope its something a little outside of their usual wheelhouse.

Im pretty sure that marketing deal is for the new Assassins Creed.

I'll never understand how fan's of these things give two craps about marketing deals. I get why platform holders do these deals but it doesnt make a lick of difference to the consumer in the end.

Anyways Sony has RDR, CoD, and Star Wars Battlefront, I don't think MS can compete with that.

I've listened to a Kinda Funny podcast earlier this year where hosts Greg Miller and Colin Moriarty claimed that there was chatter that the ability to change PSN names will be announced this year. These guys are well connected with the PlayStation industry, so this is not a rumour to easily dismiss.

But we'll see what happens.

Gears 5, Forza 7, Halo 6, let's goooo!

Seriously though wouldn't RDR, COD, and Battlefront be on Xbox anyways? Maybe MS will have some big third party publisher reveals on their show as well
