E3 2012: What We Want To Happen

E3 2012: What We Want To Happen

E3 2012 is but days away, and in true gaming website fashion it only seemed fitting to pull theories and crazy wishes out of our asses on what we think we’ll be seeing from the show floor. We rounded up some of the GameJar team and asked them for two things; a short paragraph on what they want to happen – this is the part I wanted them to pull out of their ass, just completely made up hopes and dreams style stuff so they could get it out of their system. Let’s be honest, we’re all gamers and we all do it this time of year. Then we asked for something a little more realistic, something that granted might be based on rumour but is still believable. So what did they do? Well they couldn’t stop themselves could they? Below is quite a varied cross section of the gaming scene; our hopes, our dreams. But what do you want from this year’s E3? Let us know in the comments below, stick it up on our Facebook or hit reply to the below tweet.

    Oh man, a new Advanced Wars game being announced would be good enough for me. Can’t see a Vita price drop personally, but I do think Sony’s briefing is going to be pretty much all Vita. Moar Gamez Pleeze!!! :-p

    I wanna see a Playstation 3 price drop – or a nice ass bundle with a Vita, Vita price drop, Some Halo 4 gameplay, Dead Space 3 details, be interesting to see what they’ve done with the Wii U in this last year. New Assassins Creed III details would be cool (I’m predicting they jam Kinect into in). Be nice to see some GTA V but I suspect it might be bumped to next gen. I really wanna hear about new stuff we’re not expecting but the way the marketing ramp has been pre e3 I’m not expecting we’ll hear anything we didn’t already know. Hardware wise I can take or leave the next gen this year but I suspect we’ll see something (not much) from both Sony and Microsoft.

    I’m looking forward to some new vita games being announced. A new Metal Gear for the vita would be nice. Also wouldnt mind an overhaul of the PSN and PS+.

    I would love for there to be a sequel to the game XIII which Ubisoft did in 2003 and a new PaRappa the Rapper.
