Sony has been fighting a bit of a uphill battle with the PS3 since launch. With its hefty price tag and small selection of games it definitely has taken some hits – sales wise and critic perception especially. This E3 Sony is going to be all about the games, with super heavy hitters like Killzone 2 and God of War III, along with smaller gems such as Resistance II, Socom: Confrontation and Motorstorm II; Sony is going to be on fire with games. More colors for the PSP and some new features or peripherals are to be expected. Home will most likely be shown again and we might even get a solid release date for Little Big Planet. With Sony beefing up its increasingly robust Sony Online and stepping it up in the games department, the $600 George Foreman Grill might just steal the show.
If Satoru Iwata and Miyamoto can get through the ridiculous piles of cash they have lying around we might see something from Nintendo this E3. The Nintendo press conference will start with Reggie Fils-Aime riding in on his magic money carpet with the sound of cash registers churning in Wii profits. In all honesty though, Nintendo could just show off a new black Wii and different colored Wii-motes and fanboys would be tearing the place apart. You’re probably going to get a tsunami of third party casual mini-game compilations and crappy new peripherals. Nintendo’s DS is still selling like crazy so some new colors are about all I’m expecting. The Wii Balance Board may have some exciting new games that are being developed for and Mario is of course going to be there in one shape or form. If the stars line up right you might catch a glimpse of Samus or Link’s next adventure, time will tell.
