Because not every PS3 fan cares about GoW (I know I don't) and want to see other games that might interest them? If announcing different games close together isn't smart, then what conferences that announce several games all within an hour or so?

Fingers crossed for PlayStation Battle Royale or Mm's new IP.

Difference is that no one questions the quality of Evolution's games.

I still say that Sony should give Evolution the Vita version of Gran Turismo.

Because on that day it gets all of the press. If they wait until E3 then it will get lost among a hundred other announcements.

My guess, too - but it'd be hilariously overhyped to call it "huge", if most combatants games aren't what you would call huge.

Sony clearing its ps3 agenda preemptively so more graphs and slides vita reveals and announcements will fit into their conference.

It's something that Rockstar learned a long time ago and something that many publishers/developers are starting to notice.

At least E3 is intenational news, while a GTTV episode isn't exactly that. If I were another media publication, especially non US, I'd be pissed at all these exclusives, publishers are "wasting" on GTTV and Game Informer. Rockstar doesn't do that, but instead they're having international "events" with their big trailers.

Rockstar don't give a fuck about E3. They get to do their announcements the way they do because they're bigger announcements than any other publisher makes. Sony don't make anything that even competes in terms of hype.

Whatever is shown on GTTV or in GI will instantly be on the internet for anyone to see. So I don't see how the international reach is an issue. I don't think that it's any different than what you see with Famitsu, and they have way more announcements than GI could even dream of. We already know that they're going to have an announcement about a new game from Capcom next week.

Some people just seem to be brain-washed by the manufactured hype, and end up caring more about that then the actual games.

Though I have to wonder if he also posted that in the NSMB 2 thread as well.

Not directly related, but SCEE registered a trademark for "COLD HARD CASH" 2 days ago.

Did they ever reveal something from a developer based out of the US? Not that I have any idea what sort of game can be called "COLD HARD CASH"

E3 is a venue for announcements, that's how they get hype. These things get MAJOR coverage there, and they end up wasting money by not going big with their announcements.

And yes it IS about "who wins" and "who loses" because when someone says they "win" that is saying they have generated the most hype. Hype is key to selling games, and Sony doesn't know how to do that. They haven't been able to properly market their products for years.

How many E3's did Nintendo "win" this generation? They were constantly ridiculed by many for their showings at E3, but they still ran circle around MS and Sony when it came to software and hardware sales.

You're giving E3 way too much credit as far as the impact that it has on games in the long run.

Killzone series should either die off or wait until PS4.

I don't think there's much left to do with the series on PS3. The technical limitations will prevent them from introducing key innovations for multiplayer and campaign that are needed.

Sony has a huge hole in their first party titles, and that is a western RPG. Skyrim proved that they can be immensely popular, and Sony hasn't really focused on this genre at all.

Would be awesome to see Guerrilla come up with something on that front.

So why do you watch E3 press conferences? Do you like the sales talk? Watch your favorite company exec get applause? I don't get people who DON'T want announcements at E3.

Announcements and amazing live stage demos is why I stay up for E3 every year.

I understand the argument for announcing games from E3 for marketing and attention reasons, but why would you as a gamer don't want them at E3?

Do you think the FFXIII announcement would have as exciting as it was if it was announced via a press release?

Like someone said earlier, most people thy buy games don't watch E3 or even know what it really is. There's a lot of people I know that I wouldn't expect to already know about Ascension, but they know, and don't have a clue what E3 is. That's how it is with my friends. I don't think E3 is really a big deal for getting sales. What Sony is doing seems like a smarter tactic for actual business.
