Although I hope I'm wrong, Dragon's Dogma 2 will not be announced, and you bet your ass I'll be sad.

If it does get announced, I will buy a PS3 again so I can convert my old save file to the PC version and finally beat BBI!

Not only Capcom will announce Devil May Cry 5 featuring the OG cast, but the game will have more than one playable character, and they will shadow-drop a playable demo for it on PSN after the announcement (RE7 style)

how is that a safe bet after the news last week? :p

Square likes to show trailers of games that havent even started development.

So now that FF7r has essentially restarted development they can release a new trailer like they do all their other games they announce at that stage of development.



Logic!

Safe bet: Sakurai will be working on a new game that is not Smash, but will not release this year.

Hardcore bet: a new Castlevania game will be announced at E3

Edit: so I have to bet something? Then I'll bet my avatar if neither my bets happen (I don't know who decides the avatars of losers around NeoGaf, but if it's up to me, then my avatar will be my most hated reveal/trailer of E3 for 4 months).

Shenmue 1+2 HD will be shown at Sony's conference with a release date of August for PS4/PC.

If I'm wrong I won't post about the HD collection for the rest of the year

I'll bet my avatar for one week. If I'm wrong, I'll change it to LOSER in red letters.
My bet is that Sony will announce a cheaper, slimmer PS4 Pro that ditches the disc drive.

Posted this in the EZA Bets thread, but I stand by it.

Retro will reveal a new Metroid game for the Nintendo Switch, where Samus Aran is the primary villain. You play as a new character who has had a bounty put on their head - and now has to clear their name before the deadliest Hunter in the galaxy can track you down.

Inspired by EZA final bets, whats your final bet and what you bet on It.

EZA final bets are bets of things that are Very unlikely to happen on e3.

I Will bet safe, but If Anyone wants to Go hardcore, be my guest


If Chrono trigger remake or 2 appears, I will change my avatar to "I <3 square enix" until the game is released.

If doesnt i change my avatar to yakra for a month

I bet that KH3 will be at E3 and will have a 2018 release date. If I'm wrong I will end all of my subsequent posts with "Desu" for the next 3 months.

If Smash is not shown at all this E3, I will change my avatar to THIS for the next 4 months.

Portal 3 will be announced and shadow dropped, centering around a story that the escape in part 2 was all faked and part of another diabolical test, and that all we think we know about the facility/timeframe was carefully planted misinformation.

Around 10hrs into the campaign we finally, actually escape the Aperture Science testing facility to find ourselves in an apocalyptic zombie filled nightmare world. At which point the REAL title screen for Left 4 Dead 3 will appear, tying the worlds together and phase 2 of Chell's adventures begin.

Out of the frying pan, into the fire.

I dunno. I have a feeling Granblue Fantasy Re: Link will show up. Just think it'd be time. Either be it PC Gaming Show (that might just be Shadowverse related but never know) or Sony's conference (Shawn Layden's article about how important Japanese games are to them) etc. Something just feels off... hopefully it'll happen!

Wasn't Okamiden a direct sequel to Okami?

"Safe" bet: an Animal Crossing game is announced for Switch. If it doesn't happen I'll change my avatar to a picture of Dr. Shrunk crying for a week.

Crazy bet: COD4 Remastered becomes available for separate purchase, but only on the Switch. If this actually happens I'll change my avatar to a screaming child (with a COD logo & a Switch logo thrown in there somewhere) for a month.

My prediction for MS E3;

- Scorpio at $399.00

- Scorpio will be either the same size, or smaller than the XB1S (I am leaning towards smaller)

- Scorpio will come with a trial of game pass, maybe up to 3 months?

- OG Xbox BC

- There will be an onslaught of new IP / new studio teases. MS isn't spending as much on marketing deals and will funnel that money into game development.


The PS4 had a (somewhat) dry lineup in the early years and they relied on major third party games to push sales while all their new games developed. I believe MS will follow a similar path with the Scorpio and will ride the "most powerful console and best graphics" train for the holiday season while they ramp up new IP development.

I wish I had the confidence to bet on metroid

If we don't see Evil Within I'll change my avatar from kamineko to the creepy pedo teacher from the same series. For, um, three months

Seems like a safe bet I know but I really hate that guy

Week long Avatar bet:

Scorpio price tag is greater than $399

Will wear Scorpio sign as avatar if wrong, unless someone wants to make the bet with me. They can change to whatever they want for the week. If I win vice versa :)

Safe bet

98% of Japanese devs will still not make xbox games. Scorpio will have no effect on them.

Bayonetta 3 for Switch
