Will Sony Inflict Massive Damage At E3 08?

After rebounding from a disastrous showing at E3 2006 — five hundred and ninety nine U.S. dollars, massive damage, motion controlololol, giant enemy crabs, etc. — with a more understated E3 2007 presentation — is that... Chewbacca? — Sony has a meaty line-up planned for 2008. In fact, Sony Computer Entertainment America may have too much to pack into its E3 press conference this year, as it gears up for its third holiday season in North America. The list of games it should have on hand for the PlayStation 3 will make for impressive sizzle trailers and thrilling ship date announcements. But SCEA will likely have one or two things up its sleeve, as rumors of God of War 3 and a new Twisted Metal abound.

What can we expect Sony to focus on this year? Home and first party PlayStation 3 games. SCE Worldwide Studios boss Shuhei Yoshida recently voiced the importance of internally developed products, as third-party exclusives go the way of the dinosaur. Titles we're almost guaranteed to hear more about include LittleBigPlanet, k!llzone 2, Resistance 2, inFamous, SIREN Blood Curse, SOE's The Agency, MotorStorm: Pacific Rift, PixelJunk Eden, The Last Guy, Flower and SOCOM Confrontation.

But Sony has far more than that to squeeze into its presentation, including what's coming for the PlayStation Network, PSP and PlayStation 2. While not guaranteed to make an appearance, there are a handful of "safe bets" that may come up during its E3 keynote.

These include the internally developed Afrika, Level 5's role-playing game White Knight Chronicles, and Quantic Dream's Heavy Rain. That last title is rumored to be the PS3 emotionally charged visual showcase that left the BBC "speechless" at a demo earlier this year. Ratchet & Clank Future: Quest For b00ty, rumored to be an expansion to Insomniac Games' hit 3D action platformer, is also very, very likely to get a mention.

Those looking forward to Final Fantasy XIII and Final Fantasy XIII Versus have likely already come to terms with its apparent E3 no-show, but those two RPGs should at least show up in trailer form. We can at least hold out hope for a surprise appearance from Team ICO which is in the process of staffing up for its PS3 debut.

We've heard little about Sony's plans for NCSoft on the PlayStation 3, with whom it announced a partnership with last year and what exactly that Rockstar Games exclusive it has lined up remains to be seen.

Sony may also pull back the curtain on a number of new PlayStation Network titles, beyond things like Flower and Eden, as a quintet of trademarks — Ember, SkyBlue, Carriage Return, Race Day, and Strings Attached — have yet to materialize. We may also get a peek at Q-Games next PixelJunk title, Dungeons, but suspect that the company will focus on the tangible, ready-to-ship-soon stuff. Will SCEA be brave enough to localize Japanese gardening sim Shiki-tei?

With Home expected to ship later this year, Sony will more than likely bang the hype drum on its virtual world service. How? We suspect it will be by publicly showcasing how Home can make games we already own, titles like Warhawk, Resistance: Fall of Man and Uncharted: Drake's Fortune, really, really cool. A peek into how future titles like MotorStorm: Pacific Rift and k!llzone 2 will exploit Home, wouldn't surprise us, nor would a firm release date and further details on how Sony plans to monetize Home at the consumer level.

PlayStation 3 hardware could conceivably see a price drop alongside a revision, as marquee releases like Grand Theft Auto IV and Metal Gear Solid 4 helped to spike console sales, but not kick them into overdrive. Curious talk about a slimmer, cheaper PS3 could be big news — and quite a shock to the system, as the hardware is but a few years young.

On the PSP side, we expect to see Patapon 2, LocoRoco 2 and... well, that's all we expect. Sony may surprise us with a few software announcements on the portable side, as Devil May Cry PSP rumors have begun popping up again recently, as has talk of a new portable Grand Theft Auto, but we're not holding our breath for Polyphony Digital to get around to the long-promised Gran Turismo Portable. Instead, we'll expect services style software revelations and maybe even a God of War: Chains of Olympus sequel.

It's doubtful that Sony will trot out new PSP hardware, as the device just received a model refresh later last year, news that was announced at E3 2006. Given that and the relatively young age of the hardware, we'd be surprised to see a PSP2 make an appearance next week.

Speaking of hardware, will Sony finally drop the price of the PlayStation 2 to $99?

What could potentially be most interesting is how the company plans to match Nintendo's offerings. Does Sony have its answer to Wii Fit ready? Can a rumored break-apart DualShock appeal to the masses? Will Life With PlayStation find a fan? Will it be the "Year of the PS3" or just another E3?

We'll find out next Tuesday, July 15 when Sony holds its press conference at The Shrine.

This year E3 Media & Business Summit is coming back to Los Angeles, and it’s only a month away. E3 2008 will take place on July 15-17 and as you can see with the above picture, the heavy hitters will all be there and ready to blow your mind with the latest news, trailers, announcements, etc. But what exactly can we expect at E3 2008, well lets take a look at the possibilities from each company: Microsoft, Sony, and Nintendo.

Microsoft Xbox 360

Microsoft has already revealed their 2008 Fall line up, which definitely looks promising with titles such as: Gears Of War 2, Fable 2, Banjo and Kazooie, and Too Human. But did Microsoft really show us everything? Rumors say no. There is rumor talk of a Wii-mote like controller, of Rare working on a new k!ller Instinct, and of a weird project called Lips? We can definitely say that Microsoft will release the cats out of the bag at E3. But even if they do, what are the third party developers going to showcase? Last year Take-Two gave us Bioshock, can we expect a huge third party impact like that happening once again? No way to know until Microsoft hit center stage at E3 for their conference.

Nintendo Wii

“What we announce during E3 is gonna be fantastic. There’s gonna be a big game for the holiday that the gamers (and expanded audience) will want“, the words of the president of Nintendo of America Reggie Fils-Aime, but what game is he talking about? Metroid and Mario were released last year it would be untraditional to release another one of these titles so soon. We know that Nintendo has been working on Kid Icarus but we haven’t heard of that game since the NES days. It would be a bad idea to have Kid Icarus define your fall lineup, especially when gamers have long forgotten about it and new gamers rather play mini games. Some speculate that a new Zelda title may be in the works. Also, can we expect any good third party games to finally arrive on the Wii? I highly doubt that, but you never know.

Sony Playstation 3

People are expecting a huge turn around from Sony this year. Last year wasn’t a good year for the Playstation 3, but everyone is saying things will be different in 2008. With the release of Metal Gear Solid 4 in June, there is no doubt that the PS3 will have the spotlight for the summer. But what do they have for the Fall? For the Winter? What about 2009 (since titles keep getting pushed back)? I already know about games like LittleBigPlanet, Resistance 2, k!llzone 2, and Socom Confrontation, three out of four of those will be out this fall. But with Sony trying to turn things around it needs to happen this year and it won’t help by showing off titles that will release in 2009 and 2010. Hopefully third party developers are cooking up something sweet for the PS3.

All we can do now is predict and speculate but by July, we should all know. Stay tuned.

How you can catch the E3 briefings LIVE

I just got off the phone with Adam Sessler over at G4 ( to see if G4 is available in your area.) who filled me in on G4’s plans for E3 next week. If you’re not headed to LA but you still want to get in on all the gaming action, don’t worry…it sounds like they have you covered. They’ve , and the great news is that they’ll be carrying the complete Microsoft Press Briefing on Monday (They’ll also be carrying the Sony and Nintendo events as well) without commercial interruptions. I guess the . According to that schedule, it looks like they’ll have a stream available on G4tv.com as well. So set your DVR’s and get ready for some gaming news.

P.S. I’ll also be recording our show and live blogging it from backstage, but more on that later this week.
