E3 2010 Preview

Jun 10, 2010

All the big players are preparing their Sunday's best for next week's Electronic Entertainment Expo in Los Angeles, better known as E3 2010. Last year's E3 saw some new hardware being revealed as well as some pretty exciting game announcements. How will this year's show top that of the previous year?


The Big Three

The three console makers, Microsoft, Sony, and Nintendo will once again have their own conference running and will no doubt have something special saved up for it. All three have new hardware rumored to be launching this year: "Move", a new motion controller for the PlayStation 3; "Natal" a camera only video and audio capturing device for the XBox 360 that will act like a motion controller and more; and "3DS", Nintendo's next entry to the handheld console race.


There is also Nintendo's Vitality Sensor, which was revealed last year. It will be interesting to see what games will be available at launch for the hardware. Rumor has it that we may see a slim version of the Xbox, Dreamcast games available for download on PSN and XBLA, and maybe an official new 3D Zelda game announcement.


Everyone Else

Almost all the major game developers will be showcasing their titles for the upcoming year as well. There are a lot of exciting sequels, like Civilization 5, Dead Rising 2, Gears of War 3, Fable 3, Crysis 2, Pikmin 3, Sonic 4, Little Big Planet 2, Super Scribblenauts, Portal 2, and Batman: Arkham Asylum 2. The most exciting among the sequels are Marvel vs. Capcom 3, Metal Gear Solid Rising, Final Fantasy XIV, and Golden Sun DS, which can be considered brand new games almost.


It will also be interesting to see how Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock will compare to Rock Band 3, which will have a brand new instrument, the keyboard. Exciting new games to look for include Disney's Epic Mickey, Halo: Reach, and Metroid: Other M.
