The annual Electronic Entertainment Expo, or simply E3, is just round the corner running from 5th to 7th June. Held in the Los Angeles Convention Center it is arguably one of the biggest video game conventions, rivalling the likes of Pax and Gamescom, and thus attracts the big players in the video game industry, as well all they have to offer. So what could we be seeing at this years E3?
The main news from E3 tends to come from the conferences held by the three console leaders namely Sony, Microsoft and Nintendo. Undoubtedly this year Sony will be trying to regain some revenue after their appalling financial year by unveiling some big announcements. This will probably include a new line of Vita games, which is sorely needed, and also news on PS3 exclusives such as The Last of Us and Little Big Planet Karting. The Last of Us, developed by the team behind Uncharted- Naughty Dog, will have a lot of attention because details surrounding the game have been very sparse. We know that it revolves around two characters, Joel and Ellie, in a world ravaged by some sort of fungal-zombie apocalypse. Another game which we will be seeing more of is the not-quite-Smash-Brothers All Stars Battle Royale. Between Little Big Planet Karting and All Stars Battle Royale it seems Sony have been looking to Nintendo for some inspiration. What will definitely not be shown though is a new console, Sony have explicitly said that there will be no PS4 this year.

From Modern Warfare To…What Exactly?

When a large chunk of Infinity Ward’s staff, including the two heads, split off and formed Respawn Entertainment with EA, many of us awaited rather impatiently what their first post Modern Warfare project would be. Of course, the rumors have been batted back and forth like a cat’s play thing but other than a mention of a sci-fi shooter at E3, nothing has been concrete.
Recently, as in Tuesday, Respawn officially launched their website and along with it, a very blurry screenshot of …something. Looks like maybe a tower, some pillars, maybe a castle? A church? Possibly a cemetery? It reminds me of those all 3D posters where you have to let your eyes get all blurry before you see what’s really there. Want to place your guesses? Hit the jump, peep the pic and let us know your thoughts in the comments. I assure you though, it’s no sailboat or even a schooner.
Future Talk About Wii U From Nintendo’s Iwata.

We’ve all seen it. We’ve all commented, speculated, groused and grumbled about the Wii U since its official unveiling at E3 last week. Nintendo focused a bit too much on their controller and used non Wii U footage for the sizzle reel. The rumored specs have been batted around, titles announced, third party developer support pledged. Tons of info has been let loose from the lips of interested people and industry vets but Nintendo themselves have been somewhat quiet on what Wii successor is meant to accomplish.
Yes I know, it’s supposed to play video games. That should be the most important thing but when Microsoft and Sony announced their current generation machines, they had future visions of what those consoles would do beyond gaming. Nintendo’s president Satoru Iwata has started defining what that role will be for the Wii U and if it will be just another “Soccer Mom” system.
