The EEE Thread 2006

E3 2006 Takes place withen the next 2 weeks.

This is a big yearly event where all the major players in the computer and games industary reveal what they are doing.
This event is doubly special, as this one ties into a new generation of consoles;
Specificaly we will see a LOT of information on the PS3 and the new Nintendo system.
The Xbox360 will be showcaseing its second gen games which should be impressive (Too Human!)

And PC owners wont be left out as a new battle ground opens for games;
Physics.
Not to mention hopefully some long in development games will be sited (SPORE).


So this thread is for people to document news leading upto and during E3.
Pictures and news posts only though

For major discusion on anything, please open another thread.


For instance, Nintendo has just annouced there next console is called
"Nintendo Wii". Rather then filling this thread with inevitable jokes that will get tired quickly, another thread can be created for it.

Ok, to get things started heres some games that will be showen at E3;

Red Steel;



Why get excited?:
You point to shoot. You chuck grandades and you swing swords.
This could well be the early benchmark from which revolutionary controll schemes are set.

Too Human;




Why get excited:
Its made by Silcone Knights,those that have played though Eternal Darkness knows this is the strongest storytelling force in gameing today. Too Human looks the very deffinition of epic, and its been in development since the PS1. (originaly it was to be a 4 disc PS1 game)


SuperMoneyBall Revolution;

Why get excited;
Its monkeys in balls. They ownz you.

Too Human uses UnrealEngine3, you can expect more UnrealEngine3 candy at E3

Yeah..allthough, on retrospect...I think that might have been a viral marketing ploy
(sure, it could have leaked, but they could also have easily changed that password withen an hour or so...they didnt)

Not quite yet, but its very very soon.

It seems Sony isnt doing to well finicialy:
http://ps3.ign.com/articles/703/703683p1.html

Microsoft, likewise, is posting heavy lose's from its gameing division.
(they lost $4billion over the Xbox1, and currently our loseing $150 on each Xbox360 sold.....they have a heck of a lot rideing on the Xbox360 saleing lots of games in the long run)

Nintendos "lets stand out the way and let these two giants slog it out" tactic is proveing quite a good one

There's hopefully going to be news on:

Sunflowers - Anno 1703
Westwood - C&C New version
Natsume - Harvest Moon DS
Nintendo - LoZ Phantom Hourglass

Oh and hopefully a good eplanation of why Nintendo are currently taking the Wii with their marketing - most notably Twilight princess!

The New C&C is "C&C: The Tibarian Wars", and personaly I am really looking forward to it
===

As for E3 I could go (I have contacts, its not as hard to get in as most people think), but I really cant afford a huge trip to the US, then the entry fee.
Then, if I was going, Id want to goto the conferances too. which cost even more.

Maybe E3 in, say, 4 years time.
The next few wont be interesting
This current ones a biggy.

I've been waiting for a tiberium sequal dawn + sun are by far the best C&Cs
and spore looks nice.

What I'd really love to see was something like golden sun 3 being announced at E3. Doubt it though

I want more handheld games though, I don't play PC games as much as i used to

If Golden Sun isnt announced, Camalot will annouce another RPG.
They are working on one, so theres a 80% chance its GS3.
If not, its going to be a good game anyway

Bioshock. Spiritual sequel to System Shock 2. I only played a demo of SS2, but I remember it was cool, and that screenshot and the designs are far beyond "cool".

Er... Companies always have (and probably always will) lose money from consoles. I'm not sure that I'd say Nintendo's strategy is "working", just yet, especially after they renamed their console to... wee...

yet they get a large percentage of every game sold. (= the reason why console games are more expensive than PC games). After people bought 15 games for the console the loss is gone.
