Let’s Discuss E3 2017, Shall We?

We’re less than a week away from arguably the biggest gaming event of the year. Microsoft, Sony, and Nintendo will take the stage (more or less), along with a few third-party publishers, and reveal to the world their plans for the future.

Sony is riding high on their wildly successful PS4 sales figures and an insane year for quality exclusives. Nintendo has finally managed to recapture their lost console magic in the Nintendo Switch after the abysmal reception and laughable marketing fumbles of the Wii U.

Microsoft is perhaps in the most interesting position. They’re currently suffering from a lack of desirable exclusive games and don’t seem to have much in the works to entice the gaming populace into shelling out for a more powerful version of their current Xbox that has the same (currently lacking) library of titles they can’t play elsewhere. Their messaging needs to be clear and they need to provide convincing reasons for the console’s existence, outside of “more power.”

I also fear that neither Sea of Thieves, Crackdown 3, State of Decay 2, or a new Forza title would be enough to draw people in, especially considering all of these games are likely to support Xbox Play Anywhere on PC and the current models of Xbox One. Don’t get me wrong — I want every game to succeed, but outside of Forza’s devoted audience I don’t see the others selling the Scorpio. If not their own library, then Xbox should probably focus their message on providing the best experience on all major cross-platform releases.

Xbox will need to reveal more than a release date to cater to anyone outside of the diehard “Scorpio emoji” Twitter followers, and for that alone, I think they’ll have the most interesting conference reveal. The ball is in their court and they’ve been known to drop a bombshell or two on the grandest stage of them all — not all of them good, mind you.

My predictions are a combination of wishful thinking, industry trends, and things that just make sense. It’s doubtful they’ll all happen, but hey, I like treating E3 like a giant Christmas list.

On that note, let’s stick with Microsoft. Here’s what I’m predicting.

1. Xbox Scorpio will be officially named “Xbox,” given that they’re set on transcending console generations. It will be priced at $499.99, with a $599.99 “Elite” bundle that includes the fancy Elite controller and a 1-year subscription to Xbox Live Gold. The console will release in early November, despite the current rumor of an October date alluded by a string of numbers in a recent trailer.

2. With EA’s FIFA partnering with PlayStation now, this is the perfect opportunity for another major publisher to step in — Ubisoft. Assassin’s Creed and Far Cry 5 will be shown running on the Scorpio, though the hindrance here is timing. Ubisoft has their own presentation scheduled for the following day and I’m not sure if they’d want to show off two of their flagship releases instead of premiering them at their own event. If this proves true, I predict that Xbox One copies of the new Assassin’s Creed and Far Cry 5 will contain free downloads for Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate and Far Cry: Primal (maybe the entire 360 catalog of Assassin’s Creed).

3. EA Access expands, adding more backwards compatible 360 titles, the most recent iterations of their sports lineup, and Titanfall 2 to the Vault. Star Wars: Battlefront II will be shown on the Scorpio, but won’t receive any form of console exclusive treatment due to the game’s marketing deal with Sony.

4. PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds will be shown and confirmed for Xbox Game Preview (their version of Early Access). A beta will be offered for pre-orders.

5. Sea of Thieves will be given a proper release date that will inevitably be delayed, but an open beta will be available the day of the presentation. The likely release date will be well before or after September to avoid Destiny 2.

6. Forza 7 will be shown on the Scorpio and launch alongside the console. Forza Horizon 3 will receive an update patch supporting improved performance on Scorpio (I’d guess Gears of War 4 and Halo 5: Guardians will also receive a similar update) and the game’s season pass will be heavily discounted on the Xbox store throughout the presentation.

7. Indies!!! Cuphead will finally fucking release immediately following Microsoft’s E3 presentation. Ashen is finally shown after a 3-year absence and given an early 2018 release window. Below won’t be mentioned for obvious reasons. Fullbright’s Tacoma will get an official release date.

8. Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic will see an exclusive remaster on Xbox One. Backwards compatibility coming soon for original Xbox games.

9. State of Decay 2 will be given an October release date. State of Decay: Year-One Survival Edition will be given away as a free download during the presentation (similar to how Limbo was during Inside’s announcement).

Likely not to happen, but the Xbox Bombshell Moment™ will be the world premiere of Red Dead Redemption 2 running on Scorpio. Xbox needs to dig deep and center attention on why consumers should want to buy their new console. Sure, Red Dead Redemption 2 will be available elsewhere, but showing it in action first on Xbox Scorpio would be a huge confidence booster. Rockstar is likely to premiere the game on Sony’s stage, but hey, Microsoft has deep pockets.

PlayStation is definitely in the safest position at this year’s E3. They’ve already shown most of their upcoming exclusives, with Days Gone, The Last of Us 2, God of War, Detroit: Become Human, Gran Turismo Sport, Death Stranding, and Spider-Man, so most of what’s left is nailing down release windows and fleshing out the next twelve months. However, PlayStation is unfortunately known for announcing games far too early and delaying them to hell and back.

Sony holds a commanding lead (in terms of sales figures) over the competition and holds their own annual PlayStation-focused event in December, so they’re not in a desperate position to fire off unannounced projects.

Where Xbox will likely focus on the raw power and potential of their upcoming console, PlayStation fans have had an incredible year of stellar releases that you can only play on their platform (and sometimes PC). As a consumer, games are the priority and that’s where Sony has finally caught up and severely outpaced Team Green.

The question is: can they continue? They clearly have games on the horizon, but can they continue releasing them in a timely manner where there’s little to no lull between major third-party cross-platform releases?

Here’s my take. (Keep in mind it’s already been confirmed both Death Stranding and Shenmue III will not be talked about this year during the Sony presentation)

1. PSVR will be given a montage trailer showing off various Oculus and Vive games being ported to their headset. I expect only one or two new games to be shown, if any. They can’t seem to keep up with demand, yet the vocal hype surrounding PSVR died nearly as soon as it arrived. PSVR will now replace the Vita as the PlayStation step-child and won’t be given much real estate in this year’s presentation.

2. NieR: Automata’s success will lead to… something. Maybe a 2B cross-over in Tekken 7, exclusive to PS4? A story expansion?

3. Sony confirmed a strong Japanese presence at this year’s E3. I’d expect more information on Ni no Kuni II, the next Tales of… game, a “Super” version of Street Fighter V, and more gameplay/reveals from Marvel vs. Capcom Infinite, Devil May Cry 5, Sega’s new Seaman game, Resident Evil 2’s remake, Resident Evil VII DLC, as well as a PS4 port of the Final Fantasy XIII trilogy, Final Fantasy VIII, and Final Fantasy IX. I’d also guess they’ll capitalize on Persona 5’s success by porting Persona 4 Golden to the PS4. My hope is that they’ll release a Persona Collection with the PSP versions of Persona, Persona 2: Eternal Punishment, Persona 2: Innocent Sin, the PS2’s Persona 3 FES, and Persona 4 Golden. A man can dream, can’t he?

4. Building on the hype of the Crash Bandicoot remakes, a Spyro collection will be confirmed but clarified to be in the early stages and nowhere near being ready to show.

5. God of War will receive a release window of “holiday 2017,” and likely be delayed until early 2018.

6. Call of Duty WWII will be premiered on the Sony stage and will get an exclusive beta on PS4, as well as exclusive content and first-access to DLC maps.

7. Destiny 2 will be shown in some aspect and PS4-exclusive content will be lightly detailed. My guess is exclusive strikes again with a one-year exclusivity clause, similar to the original game. Destiny: The Taken King will be given away as a free download, with its Rise of Iron expansion being heavily discounted throughout the event.

8. Detroit: Become Human will be given a February 2018 release date. Again, it will likely be delayed because that’s kind of PlayStation’s M.O.

9. Days Gone will be shown in a more robust capacity, detailing gameplay mechanics, world building, and story details. It will release in October. This seems sooner than anticipated, but the game has been in development for two and a half years. If it’s not given a 2017 release date, this could be a summer 2018 game to not only give the team more time for polish but pad out next year’s schedule.

10. Spider-Man will be PlayStation’s keynote showing, with a lengthy gameplay reveal and a vague “coming 2018” release window.

11. Horizon: Zero Dawn’s confirmed story DLC will be given a brief trailer with a “more details at PSX 2017” bookend. It’ll likely be Rost’s origin story.

12. Visceral’s Star Wars will get a decent-sized trailer and a vague “coming 2018” announcement.

13. The Last of Us 2 shows up in some capacity, but the game is still too far off to show much in the way of gameplay.

PlayStation’s inevitable “oh shit!” moment will either be Red Dead Redemption 2’s world premiere gameplay trailer (unless it’s either not shown at all, or snatched up by Xbox), Bloodborne 2, or a Sony-funded reboot of Silent Hill. The fun here is just wishing for the wildest shit and hoping something catches, and if anyone can pull it of it’s PlayStation.

Nintendo has seemingly captured lightning in a bottle once again with their new Switch console, but they don’t seem to be capitalizing on it very well. If any company refuses to do what makes sense, it’s them, and that’s been the case since the console’s release. They’re struggling to meet the console’s demand and are still guiding consumers to the aging 3DS by releasing exclusive games in the Fire Emblem and Pokemon series over there instead.

The Big N has already confirmed that their Nintendo Direct presentation will only run thirty minutes, which, while not long, has proven long enough for the company to deliver rapid-fire announcements.

Super Mario Odyssey is their major holiday release this year on the Switch, so expect that to be their primary focus (much like The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild was in 2016).

Here’s what I’m predicting.

1. A new Metroid will finally be shown in some capacity. My guess is that it’ll be first-person again, but not a game in the Prime series. I’d also guess it’s simply given an extremely brief confirmation trailer with a short glimpse of Samus and the game’s logo. Nintendo frequently provides fans with game-devoted Direct presentations, so a mere confirmation is all they need to have us frothing at the mouth. They can detail the game better in its own Direct in 2018. As an aside, the Metroid series doesn’t sell well in Japan and it’s likely the series won’t see the light of day anytime soon, barring pointless and shitty spin-offs. However, this is the #1 thing I want from any of the three presentations. If Metroid is ignored once again, I’ll likely cry myself to sleep.

2. From Software will be porting Dark Souls or Dark Souls II: Scholar of the First Sin to the Nintendo Switch. Whichever version makes its way over, it’ll have exclusive Nintendo-themed weapons or armor styled after The Legend of Zelda and Fire Emblem series. While Dark Souls III would make the most sense, the Nintendo Switch isn’t as powerful as the PS4 and Xbox One, so it’d be more work than necessary to bring the third entry over to Nintendo’s hybrid console. This would allow From to test the waters without doing more than the bare minimum with their resources.

3. Mother 3 is finally being translated. Much to the dismay of Nintendo fans, it’ll not only be exclusive to the 3DS, but the New 3DS models, as it’s a SNES title and for whatever unbelievable reason SNES games don’t work on standard units. If there is a god, Nintendo will announce a Mother Trilogy with all three games coming to Nintendo Switch.

4. Virtual Console will be briefly confirmed and launched with the long-rumored GameCube titles Luigi’s Mansion, Super Smash Bros. Melee, Mario Sunshine, and Animal Crossing.

5. A New Animal Crossing will be confirmed and will release simultaneously on Switch and 3DS because why not let the fucking thing die already.

6. Super Smash Bros Deluxe for Nintendo Switch (officially named, no less) will be confirmed for a July 21st release, coinciding with the release of the long-awaited Bayonetta, Cloud, and Corrin amiibo. It’ll introduce an Inkling, an Arms fighter (likely Ribbon Girl), and Breath of the Wild’s Zelda as playable fighters. The Switch version will include all previously console-exclusive content from Wii U and 3DS. Existing amiibo for the aforementioned characters will function within the Switch version of the game.

7. We’ll see a Nindies montage confirming Switch ports of Hyper Light Drifter, Crypt of the Necrodancer, and Axiom Verge. Undertale will be announced for the Switch.

8. A Netflix app will be confirmed.

9. We’ll see more Wii U ports on the Switch, like Xenoblade Chronicles X, Yoshi’s Woolly World, Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker, Mario Party 10, and Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze.

10. To coincide with classic games and Virtual Console’s inevitable release, new JoyCon will be shown that will mimic the d-pad and button layout of the SNES and NES controllers.

11. Fire Emblem Heroes will be given a more detailed breakdown (although brief, considering the time limit) showing off series favorites (like Tharja) in action. We’ll get a concrete release date, which I’m guessing will be early October.

12. Super Mario Odyssey will be given an in-depth breakdown to show off the game’s unique mechanics, Mario 64-style open-world, and end with an early December release date.

13. The long-rumored Mario/Rabbids cross-over will finally be confirmed and release in early 2018.

Nintendo’s magic moment will be the confirmation that previous Virtual Console purchases on 3DS, Wii, and Wii U will transfer to the Nintendo Switch free of charge. Then again, this is pro-consumer and makes sense, so it’s not likely to occur. Nintendo’s gonna Nintendo.

What about you, folks? Excited for E3? What’s your wishlist?

  1. I have to say this is the least excited for an E3 than I’ve been in a long time. Remember the time they 86’ed all of the extravagance, moved everything into a hotel conference room, and only let the dead print folks in? This year feels up there for me. Which kinda sucks. I usually love this time of year, and seeing all of the cool stuff I’ll be able to check out within two years.

    That isn’t to say that I won’t be wowed by anything when the show comes around. There will likely be a few things. But there’s not much to make me run out into the mall shrieking like a madman about it. At least not much that we already know about. Except maybe Mario, and Splatoon 2. Oh, and the next Mega Man collection. Hopefully by then I’ll have splurged on a Switch. Of course I hope Intel, NVidia, and AMD give us more details on their new product lines during the PC Gaming show. I have to say, the last couple of E3’s have had pretty cool surprises in the PC space that don’t get the attention they probably should. My video card is beginning to near “Hand me down” status, where I replace it with a midrange card I’ll get 4-5 years out of, and I give it to a relative who needs to be able to watch cat videos on YouTube with less buffering. Also Bejeweled without screen tearing. I have relatives that keep machines going for eons.

    Anyway, the news of a 1080 series price drop in the wake of new, and competing cards would be welcome news. Hopefully this year I’ll be pleasantly surprised, and stoked for more. I certainly prefer to be excited over lethargic.

    As far as predictions go, I’ll take a crack at giving a few.

    1.) Microsoft is going to further convert the Xbox One into a walled garden computer for the living room. They’ll push more into their play anywhere service, and they may even start trying to buy exclusivity for some upcoming PC games for the Windows 10 store to gain some ground against Steam, GoG, Origin, and Uplay.

    2.) In addition to showing off the extra power the latest model has over older Xbox One models, they’ll tout some added features it has over them beyond running a game at 4k @ 30fps. They’ll probably announce some social media enhancements to what it already does.

    3.) They’ll drop the price of Xbox Live to steal some of Nintendo’s “Yeah we’re charging you now, but at least it’s not Xbox Live bad.” thunder. Also improvements to their development program with indie developers.

    4.) Halo, Gears, Forza, a new Banjo Kazooie that isn’t Nuts & Bolts, Another crack at Perfect Dark. Also something, something Minecraft. Which will probably blow us away again quite honestly. Like the AR glasses a couple of years back, and the multiplatform multiplayer last time out.

    5.) Timed exclusivity features for Call Of Duty, Star Wars Battlefront 2, and Madden from EA. Because reasons.

    6.) Sony pushes more PSVR experiences. Like Last Of Us II will be in VR! (Crowd goes nuts)

    7.) God Of War, Twisted Metal, Uncharted spinoff, a new Crash Team Racing, Gran Turismo.

    8.) Timed exclusivity features for Assassin’s Creed, Far Cry 5, and another Ubisoft title. Because reasons.

    9.) New, exciting things for PlayStation Vue. Also a gamut of new indie games. And Final Fantasy.

    10.) The Vita is still a thing. We promise. Here’s like five games for the thing. We swear!

    11.) Nintendo thanks us for making the Switch a success. We get more information about their online service.

    12.) Virtual Console plans are better laid out to us.

    13.) A ton of new indie games coming to the e-shop.

    14.) Splatoon 2, Mario Odyssey, Wii U ports, Bayonetta 3 (Everyone loses their minds.), Metroid Prime 4 (Everyone loses their minds again) F-Zero Switch-X (Vince McMahon passing out gif)

    15.) Uber 2DS info, and a montage of new JRPGs on it.

    16.) The Wii U is still a thing, so here’s one final run of deeply discounted games that used to cost $60, now they’re only $20

    17.) Owners of Wii U games get the Switch versions on a discount via registration. (However this will be for digital downloads only)

    18.) EA shows off more Fifa

    19.) Mario Rabbids RPG

    20.) Capcom, Namco, show off something you never thought would hit the Switch.

    21.) Square Enix teases a new Chrono Trigger.

    22.) EA, Activision, Ubisoft, WB, show us Star Wars, Battlefield, Star Wars, CoD, Just Dance 10,000, Far Cry 5, Creed, The Crew part 2, South Park, and a new game based on Archer. Also Gearbox gives us Borderlands 3.

    23.) Probably won’t get much info from the big 3 conferences, but a few amazing unannounced AA experiences from indies will wow people who tune into the PC gaming conference.

    24.) Hopefully, a publisher re-releases more retro goodness. The next Mega Man collection, is a nice start. But whomever owns the rights to Stern’s games should give me arcade Berzerk, and Frenzy damn it!

    25.) Valve finally gives us a conclusion to Half-Life. After talking about the new features coming to Steam. (A man can dream, can’t he?)

    1. With this being such a great year for game releases and Microsoft showing off new hardware, I’m definitely intrigued (though not interested in their console). With Rare working on Sea of Thieves right now, I don’t think we’ll see a new Banjo or Perfect Dark anytime soon unless they’re cool with Microsoft letting another team work on them. For Rare to be dedicated to Xbox for so long and not be given the chance to relive their classics, that’d be a real shame… but, then again, they handed Killer Instinct off to someone else and it turned out swimmingly. Beyond swimmingly, really. Anything can happen!

  2. I like the your list. You’re probably spot on for most of these.

    Here are some things I might add and one question:

    Microsoft:

    1. I agree on Xbox One being renamed just “Xbox” with the Scorpio variant being Xbox S, Pro, +, or Elite

    2. I think Xbox will bring Sega on stage to announce their new Sega Forever subscription service/partnership on Xbox, which will include a bombshell or two including Jet Set Radio Future HD, Sonic Racing Transformed HD, Sonic Generations HD and/or discounts on the upcoming Sonic Titles

    3. The will be a new version of idarb called idarb x, which will be a 3D variant of the original with more customization, levels etc

    Sony: not a big Sony fan so I’m not sure about them, but…

    1. I expect a new PSP style device announcement to compete with Switch

    2. I expect a lot of douchey, backhanded comments made towards Xbox and Nintendo, because that’s Sony for you.

    3. I think they will announce a pro controller to compete with Xbox Elite Controller and maybe a bombshell PS5 announcement due to launch in 1 – 2 years.

    Nintendo:

    1: they hopefully will address some of the issues of their console including the crazy chat setup and hopefully a fix to the Joy Con sync issue.

    2. They will announce more, expensive, probably Mario themed accessories for the Switch

    And last but not least, my question:

    Q: um, I must have missed something… Why would Below not be released? I’ve been patiently waiting for that!

    Like

    1. With Sony already going on record to say they respect the Switch and see Switch and PS4 working side-by-side, I don’t see them making snide comments in their direction. They’ve also said they’re not “afraid” of Scorpio so I don’t see them announcing PS5 just yet — my prediction is next year for the reveal so they can try to out Scorpio the Scorpio. PS4 Pro sales aren’t stellar (1 in 5 PS4’s sold is a Pro) so I’d imagine a price drop, if anything. I definitely see them jumping on the controller enhancement that Xbox pioneered, so maybe we’ll see that here or in December at PSX. Good call.

      Some sort of Sega app would be cool, even if it’s just access to classic games, but I don’t want the Xbox to be bogged down with too many subscription services. We already have Xbox Live Gold, EA Access, Game Pass, Netflix, Hulu, etc. I’d prefer a bundle price and would happily pay $60 for eternal access to the Sega Hub or whatever they’d call it.

      I’d be shocked if they don’t release a Mario Odyssey bundle with an exclusive themed dock and JoyCon pairing.

      The developers of Below have delayed the game numerous times since its announcement and they’ve already confirmed that they will not discuss a release date until they are 100% sure it’s ready to roll. Since then, there have been no updates. So either E3 is their 100% confirmation or the game is still stuck in delay hell.

  3. I’m… not really excited about E3. I’m actually considering skipping this year (like I did last year) and just catching the highlights of the show later. Since Pokemon isn’t a thing on the switch, yet, I have no reason to be interested in Nintendo’s presentation. I already know Monster Hunter is coming so I don’t really need to see anything on that either. Microsoft… has lost a long time fan as far as I’m concerned. I have zero hype for the Scorpio and don’t really care about their presentation at all. I might catch Sony’s just to see if Bloodborne 2 is announced, but everything else is kind of meh to me so…

    I think you’re dreaming when you say Knights of the Old Republic will get a remaster dude :). You already know my E3 predictions because we went over them so there’s no point in me repeating myself :).

    1. I’m always excited about E3 even if I’m not excited about what’s being shown or who is showing it.

      I’m mainly interested in the Nintendo presentation for a possible Metroid announcement, but I’ve been waiting for that for nearly 10 years. I expect this year will be no different, but my fingers are crossed.

      I have no interest in the Scorpio, but I’m more so interested in how Xbox will present itself and try to lure fans into spending money on either an upgrade or a console that’s powerful without much in the way of exclusives. I’m excited to see how they pull it off and would prefer PS4 have competition since it’ll breed more exciting games and pricing opportunities.

      1. I agree with everything you wrote lol. I’m just salty about the Pokemon announcement :). I’m super disappointed and don’t think I can take more after that reveal. Once I get over it I’ll most likely watch the presentations so I don’t be completely lost while you, and Chuck are talking about it next week.

  4. Great post! I’d love to see a PS4 port of the FFXIII Trilogy (and I will definitely be platinuming it again, haha). I also really want to see a Metroid Prime game on the Switch. Oh and moar Amiibo would be awesome too :D

    1. If they release a new Metroid *and* release the original Prime trilogy on Switch, I’d happily forget the last decade of misery.

      I’d also be all over a XIII trilogy port with all of the DLC. I’ve never finished XIII nor have I touched XIII-2 or LR. I was 100% convinced this would have been a thing already so I’ve purposefully avoided going back to XIII. If nothing is announced at E3 I’ll move it near the top of my backlog and give up hope.

      1. I would definitely forgive their Metroid abandonment if that happened!

        I didn’t buy any of the DLC for the XIII trilogy so I would love to see it included, if they do this (which they better *shakes fist*). I think you told me you made it to the part where Fang joins the fun. I really hope you enjoy the whole trilogy when you get to it :D

  5. Nice predictions! I think I actually matched 4/5 with you with my own predictions! At this point, I’m really only excited about Nintendo’s presentation, but despite my hopes and wish lists, it’ll probably be mostly Super Mario Odyssey. Not that that’s a bad thing. I just miss the days of surprise reveals and Nintendo press conferences. Still hyped either way!

  6. There’s a Seaman game coming? Wow had no idea, the first was one very… interesting

    I’m mostly excited for Nintendo, I just cant’ wait to get my hands on a Switch now. I really wish Nintendo can solve the stock problems and make it easier for me to find out. For now, I’m constantly refreshing all major retailer websites in my browser until one shows up. I saw one available at walmart for a brief moment, but between entering my shipping info to hitting continue, it was gone :(

    I can’t agree more, Metroid needs to happen, but I’m doubtful. As you said, even if it’s a logo and nothing else, that would make my mouth froth with foam as you said. I’d like to see Smash deluxe also announced with some new fighters, I really want solid snake back in the mix!

    I’m hoping more Wii U titles get ported over, but at better prices. I don’t think each game needs crazy enhancement like MK deluxe and others, some games could be brought straight over, and I’d consider buying them again if the price was fair. But I don’t know if i’d spend $80 for tropical freeze or bayonetta 2 again. As much as i love those games.

    1. Yeah, a bunch of Sega folks tweeted a picture of themselves wearing Seaman shirts a few weeks back.

      Paying full price definitely hurts the appeal, but they probably figure the Wii U sold poorly enough that more people are willing to pay full price than not.

  7. I really hope they do release the FFXIII trilogy, though now I have the means to play it, but having the digital option would’ve been nice. Speaking of which Nintendo captured Lightning in a bottle? I’d make sure LightningEllen doesn’t find out about this :D But seriously dammit! Mother 3 is only going to be on the 3DS? Why are there so many damn consoles I need to get. I’d hope they’d at least put it out on the Switch, though I don’t have one of those either.
