We can expect E3 2012 to bring some of the most anticipated games for this year and next, but the event is “not only about games”, which was pointed out in a video feature last year and can be seen in the video below this article.
On the topic of most wanted games for E3 2012 — we’ve received feedback in the past from PR readers on what games should be featured at this years event. The list includes the likes of God of War 4, Gran Turismo 6 (the Bathurst track has been scanned), Ghost Recon: Future Soldier, Assassin’s Creed 3, Black Ops 2, Dragon Age 3, Doom 4, and Fallout 4. If you want to see details on another game at E3 2012 then share a comment, and let us know the name.
Other requests include using the gaming event as a launch pad for Skyrim DLC, although we’re sure certain fans would want the downloadable content much sooner than June. If it’s not a game you want to see at E3 but rather an expansion or DLC, then share your thoughts.
It seems like you can count the Xbox 720 out for this years event, which has been denounced by Microsoft on more than one occasion. Sony has also stated they are not focusing on the PS4 right now, although we do know that both of the next-gen consoles are being developed but are not ready for public viewing by E3 2012.
We know that Nintendo are likely to showcase the final design and features for the Wii U, although what else could we expect from Nintendo, Microsoft, and Sony? It would be a good idea for Microsoft and Sony to showcase something special at this year’s event, and if they are not trying to throw us off the PS4/Xbox 720 scent, then what could pull the limelight from the Wii U?
Some other next-gen articles you might have missed — recently we looked at the graphics potential using CryEngine 3, and the importance of a graphics jump for the next-gen consoles, although these systems could lose disc support within a few years. Lastly we’d love to see Sony or Microsoft partner with this virtual reality technology for some FPS games that really put you inside the gaming world.
What do you want to see from Microsoft, Sony, and Nintendo at E3 2012?
