Well people, the E3 2012 is coming in less than 1 month.
Let’s warm up for it, with the announcements we want to expect, as well as announcements we don’t want to expect.
Want – Next Gen Hardware
New hardware is the ultimate way, to get into the next generation of gaming, either portable, or not portable.
With all the new portables already launched, and the Wii U announced last year, you might think, this is the end, right? No!
In fact, we are still missing the fact, that Sony and Microsoft didn’t announce their Next Gen Consoles!
Besides, Nintendo already said they’ll show the Final Wii U Hardware on this E3 (E3 2011 was a prototype, after all).
Most rumors keep calling the rest, “PlayStation 4″ and “XBOX 720″, while other rumors state, both are going to be called differently.
Yeah, I was also wondering why they kept using PlayStation Number 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 9000, and XBOX Number 360, 720, 1080, 2048.
Besides, XBOX 720 doesn’t sound like Microsoft is going to change the resolution, but it might hint on double power of the XBOX 360 (360 times 2 equips to 720).
Don’t want – Sony’s Bragging
No offense, Sony and Sony Fans, but even you have to admit, that Sony’s Press Conferences were mostly bragging about how well the sales go, how awesome the PS3 is, and telling how hard the Wii and XBOX suck.
Of course they did show a few descent games, and demonstrated the 3D effects last year, but it’s still not enough!
Take an example from Nintendo’s Press Conference, where they made lots of game announcements, on stage and back stage.
Having a Press Conference, doesn’t mean we want to hear how well your sales go, all the time!
I mean, we’re talking about the E3, not some kind of business meeting.
Don’t want – Only Kinect
Even though a chance Microsoft will announce a new console is 90%, we were still disappointed for last year’s Conference, where Microsoft was hardly talking about games for the XBOX 360 we all know, but instead of that, was talking mainly about games for the Kinect.
Bitch please, we understand it was new back then, but keep it at least more mixed!
Want – Next Gen Hardware
Wait, I already talked about that, sorry!
Want – New Mario, Uncharted, and Halo
Nintendo, Sony, or Microsoft consoles are never complete, without these.
Mario belongs to Nintendo, Uncharted belongs to Sony, and Halo belongs to Microsoft.
We want more games with them, Spin-Offs are welcoming as well.
Don’t want – Redesign of 3DS
If there was something that always bugged every DS owner, were redesigns.
You kept spending your money for no reason at all.
Well, a DSi was a nice upgrade, but it’s still no Next Gen.
First came a DS, then Nintendo thought it was to heavy and to big, so they came with a DS Lite.
Why? I always found the big DS better!
Okay, the Screens weren’t as clear as on the DS Lite, but I always had pain in my hands, while playing it for hours long, unlike the old DS.
The DSi was a big improvement, in terms of features, but why the fuck did we need a DSi XL?!
Want – Games, lots of them
Okay, I’m not really known to the XBOX and PlayStation platforms, at the moment, but what we at least want to see:
- The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask 3D
- Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and 3DS
- New Kirby game, because of its 20th Anniversary
- Pokémon RPG for the Wii U, like we saw on the Gamecube
- More information about New Super Mario Bros. 2
- Surprises from every publisher/developer
Definitely don’t want – Copycat
The Wii had a reputation for being a device for families, while the PS3 and XBOX 360 were known as Hardcore Consoles.
Since last year’s E3, it looked like Nintendo, Sony, and Microsoft were copying each other, by making the Wii aim more to Hardcore Gamers, and the PS3 and XBOX 360 aim more to families.
You really won’t change any reputations with that, you just get a bad one, seriously!
Just change your reputations on the Next Generation, not during the Current Generation.
Really, nobody will care about how Hardcore/Casual you are.
In more facts, Sony and Microsoft copied the Wii Remote, don’t copy the Wii U Controller, be creative instead!
The Wii U Controller is smaller than an iPad, bigger than a Samsung Galaxy Note, but if Sony and Microsoft copy it anyway, don’t go bigger, I already have trouble, holding my Tablet in the air.
