E3 2019 Thread: Donzo! Post E3 Conversation and Migration back into VGG

Less than 2 months away to June…you know what time it is!

This year more than likely won’t carry as much hype as for the first time ever Sony is not taking part in E3…like at all. This isn’t like a ‘we’re pulling a Nintendo and cutting our conference but still being there’ deal they’re legit not here this year. So potentially the main sources of hype now rest mostly on the shoulders of Nintendo and Microsoft this year.

Official Website:

Date: E3 will officially be going on from June 11th to June 13th this year. Of course this doesn’t include what any other conferences that may happen before these days. Dates for conferences and events will be placed below.

Chat

Someone will make a discord…OR…you can use the VGG discord! Of which I don’t have the ability to make an invitation for…sure someone will help me with that.

Rumor Mill(on going progress up until the end of the conferences)

Ninja Gaiden 4:

This has been floating around for a minute as well…Confirmed to be in development by Team Ninja and then complete silence on it

Team Ninja has been still pretty silent about this. No other rumors have come up pertaining to this game.

Next Box reveal?

Rumors have been picking up regarding M$’s new console possibly getting shown at this year’s E3. We’ve known for a while now that they’ve been working on it and they’ve even officially came out and said so at last year’s E3 so there’s a pretty good chance of it showing up this year. Personally a bit sad that we seem to be jumping into the next generation when the stop gaps just came out 2 years ago and it still feels like there’s more that could be squeezed out of this generation but whatever…we’ll see how this goes!

PS5 rumors

Rumors for the PS5 haven’t been as prevalent as next box rumors and the chance of it showing up at E3 are definitely slim mainly since Sony is not doing a conference this year. Even though they aren’t doing a conference doesn’t mean that they may not announce something during or around the week. HIGHLY UNLIKELY though.

Update: in the process of me getting this thread prepared this happened

Nintendo possibly releasing a Switch mini and a Switch pro

https://www.tomsguide.com/us/nintendo-switch-mini-rumors,news-29368.html

This has been swirling around since around last year in some shape or form. Nintendo does do enhancements for handhelds but they’ve never done one for a home console. Nintendo considers the Switch to be a home console despite the hybrid nature of the system. If this does happen it’ll be the first time that they’ve done an enhancement for a home console. I’ve been quite hesitant to believe anything regarding this rumor but the fact is…it keeps popping up consistently. If there’s anything that’s assured about rumors in this industry is the fact that more they keep popping up without being debunked the more likely there’s some type of truth to it.

Metroid Prime Trilogy HD rumor

This has been going on for some time since last year. I’m pretty sure this is a sure thing but every time this rumor pops up that they’re finally going to announce it, it ends up not happening. Considering that Prime 4 got pushed back and we probably won’t hear anything about that for probably 2 years I’d suspect they’ll keep this under wraps until next year to help ease into Prime 4. It’d be nice if they just announced it’s existence but I’m not going to expect it.

Nintendo saving another game from doom…possibly Scalebound?

This rumor is absolutely crazy and would blow up if it were true. This would make 3 exclusive titles that Platinum would be making for Nintendo if that was the case. The game could that Nintendo is supposedly saving could easily be something else like the dead Wii game Project Hammer but when the news of Nintendo saving a game hit then rumors starting popping up that it was Scalebound.

Horizon Zero Dawn 2

https://www.thesixthaxis.com/2019/04/15/horizon-zero-dawn-2-confirmed/

Someone goofed and let this out of the bag, Chances of it showing up at E3 are extremely slim considering Sony isn’t doing E3 year but hey…never know? Maybe announcement around the timing of E3 without an official conference? Not expecting this…think they’ll probably save this for next year to be honest.

God of War sequel

Way to early for this. I’m not even gonna hold out there being a chance of an announcement especially this year. Probably won’t really hear real rumblings on this until maybe 2 years from now.

Retro Studios new game

Retro has been quiet for about 5 years. DKTF released for the first time back in Feb 2014 and though they’ve helped on projects here and there since and helped with the switch port for DKTF there hasn’t been much on what they’ve cooking. Rumors before involved a ‘Starfox Grand Prix’ game for a couple of years and just last year it was announced that Metroid Prime 4 had to be restarted with their help. This gift that Reggie recieved as a parting gift from the studio does look suspicious…

I Take it as a sign that E3 had better days, and the trade show is falling back into obscurity.

Enjoy it fellas, this is likely the last E3 to feature any of the Big 3 in any significant capacity.

I think E3 got too big, too multi media, and too costly.
The various businesses and companies that represent themselves as manufacture, buyer, seller, distributions, ect are finding that maybe E3 isn’t worth it.

Hotels rates tripper or even quadruple during E3 with seeing big money coming in, restaurants I am sure do the same thing. There one Hotel that uses the side of the building for Ad space, and they make everyone bid for the honor of having the biggest billboard near E3.

It got big enough where we already see Nintendo not as active, Sony flat out pulling out, You got left is MS and EA, and MS has it’s own thing going on, on the side.

E3 was never intended for us fans. E3 needs to learn to downscale if they want to survive.

All those throw backs and hype moments and nothing featuring Reggie? C’mon, man.

Lol. I was updating some of those links since some of them died and realized more stuff needs to be added. I’m definitely putting that awkward moment from Sony’s last conference up there when they were transitioning between venues.

No Sony?

It is because of Booth Babes, isn’t it?

PC, Limited Run, and Squeenix times updated in OP.

Let’s go!

I really hope there is something revealed besides just the dates for next year’s new hardware. Also I hope Sony 's State of Play or whatever it calls steps up strong with some legit release dates on stuff. It would be sad if this generation ended on a whimper similar to Wii U where it’s best were either ported or released alongside it’s successor.

Also I want Nintendo to build a Pokémon town in their booth.

Wait…Brink? The same brink that absolutely crashed and burned on arrival for 360 and PS3?

I’m confused.

I don’t believe in the list at all…way too early.

I mean, most of it seems pretty possible. Brink, DinoCrisis and Dead Rising are really the only things that made me scratch my head.

But they make sense in being fringe IP that MS could reasonably secure as exclusive or limited time exclusives. That being said just because it would fit the model doesn’t mean it is legit.

But how much of that is actual exclusives and not just MS padding out their lame duck of a conference?

If there any more NFL, Hollolens, Movie watching or other BS then MS struck out as losers again (and been doing so since 2013).

I also wonder how many of that new IP gets canned late in the development cycle.
