SCEA: E3 2009 to be one of the biggest in the past 11 years

Friday, 17 April 2009 15:00 GMT By Patrick Garratt

SCEA hardware marketing boss John Koller is expecting this year’s E3 to be one of the most significant for the company in the last 11 years.

“It’s going to be a big E3,” Koller told VG247, talking at GDC.

“We’ve just started planning what the announcements will be, but I’ve been here for 11 years: this will be one of the larger E3s in terms of software and just discussions about where we’re going from a brand perspective and where each of the platforms is headed.”

It’s widely rumoured that PlayStation’s biggest brands are going to be megatonning Sony’s E3 press conference in June, and Koller did nothing to dampen expectation.

“I think some of the big announcements are going to come of the software side. We talked a bit at Destination PlayStation, and came out with about half of the PSP line-up, maybe even less, and the balance we’re going to be talking about in the months leading up to e3 and at E3,” he said.

“The same goes for PS3. There’s a really strong line-up of games that’s going to help drive a lot of business.”

Bring. It. On. E3 takes place in LA in the first week of June.

    Yeah but Team ICO’s project really doesn’t have to. It WAS supposed to be at TGS 08, so I just don’t trust anything now. GT5 will be good enough. Man I miss a proper fully featured GT game.

    Anyway, everything else, I don’t care about. Well Uncharted 2 I do.

    If I am honest it will be a failure for me, lacking those titles. But the reason I believe that Sony will ahve a hard time screwing it up, is becuase, they are doing more of a Microsoft this year. Which is awesome.

    MAG, Infamous, Uncharted 2, Heavy Rain and God of War 3. We’ve seen very very little of all of them. They are announced but we’ve not seen much, outside of teasing.

    Anyway, the point is, there’s not much way to screw up when you have tons still to show. But this is Sony, so there will be a giant enemy crab somewhere in there.

    #22 6 years ago
  23. Robo_1

    Got to be a 100 dollar PS3 price cut, coupled with the unveiling of a new PSP. That’s the tag team that will score them a major hit this year. Reveal TRICO and confirm GoW3 for this year, and it’s a home run.

    Maybe Tears of Blood will finally be unveiled, or has that been quietly canned. :(

    I remember when sony use to rule E3 with an iron fist but the last couple of years have been lack luster. The only thing that could make Sony reclaim their past E3 glory is to bring back Ken and Phil. Phil was the man.

    A Ueda game unveil and some more Heavy Rain would be nice.

    What historical Sony properties are we still awaiting a next-gen update of? Syphon Filter? Jak and Daxter? Er….? Help me out here.

    Rumours were going around of a Syphon Filter update in the works. That would be very nice, I’m a huge fan of the series, and the PSP games were top. Hasn’t a new Jak & Daxter game been announced, but for PS2.

    They certainly don’t seem willing to drop PS2 quite yet, a new Motorstorm and Jak game does show continued interest in the platform.

    Blerk, going by Wikipedia. Ape Escape, The Getaway, Eyetoy, Twisted Metal, Sly Cooper, Detruction Derby, MediEvil and PaRappa The Rapper.

    I’d love next gen sequels to all of them personally. Especially MediEvil and Ape Escape. Scratch that, I don’t want an Eyetoy sequel at all!

    With a large install base of the xbox 360 and the added hype behind the halo franchise name the game should have sold a lot more. Also M$ did a better job marketing Halo wars than Sony did with Killzone2. Even this site had a background covered in Halo wars for a good month. I never saw KZ2 ads on this site.

    @Blerk To be honest, Sony haven’t done many of their IP’s from previous generations outside of Siren, R&C and GT5P. Weird.

    Yeah I actually don’t do music games either really, certainly not this generation.

    Seraphemz, 20 mil is a lot to spend on a game, that is part of a very busy genre this generation. Sony has Uncharted.

    “Shatner. Unparalleled narrative? I don’t mind people pretending they’ve played a game, just so long as they do it convincingly.”

    I’d argue that you’ve played Ico and SotC and don’t consider them unparalleled narrative within the gaming industry, then *you* are the pretender.

    I’m hoping Team Ico do reveal something at the event, but the fact that Ueda himself admitted they’re “struggling” is not a good sign in the slightest.

    thank Zeus for the edit button also :P but at the xbot general i didn’t start anything with you. i’m not sensitive. I can take more bullet shots than you’ve taken more cum shots.

    I just find it funny that you have been waiting for me to return so you can throw numbers in my face. Sorry i haven’t been glued to a computer monitor like you have but i’ve been busy packing to leave.

    The sad thing psychotext and i’m being serious (cause i spelled your name right for once) you want to be my friend. I know we got off on a bad foot when we first met but i hope when i come back from cali we can put all this xbot and sony fanboy stuff behind us. I hope when i get my xbox360 you also accept my friend invite. You’re a smart guy and i do respect most of your thoughts you post here. Good luck and I hope we can come to a truce…friend :-)

    Pud – now that you bring that up, watching the Uncharted 2 footage, i did notice that Nathan now slides to cover.. kinda like the video of Eight Days was showing.. maybe Naughty Dog liked what they saw. Cant blame them for using it.

    I personally would mind getting Eight Days if its a good game that is in the same genre. As long as its good.

    I say you can both explain to me why they have an unparalleled narrative.

    It’s a completely unconventional narrative, I’d agree. It’s a very basic story, I’d agree.

    Ueda said he was struggling to say anything. Not struggling to develop the game. That much is confirmed when Redmond (TIGMagazine) retranslated it from Famitsu.

    @Seraphemz I was saying exactly the oppsosite, there’s no sharing of animation going on. And ND animators are clearly in their own little world, where animations can still afford to transition awfully.

    “I say you can both explain to me why they have an unparalleled narrative.”

    Do you have a few hours? Do you want me to write an essay on the subject? Valid question.

    Here’s a link that will go a long way into offering you some insight into why its unparalleled narrative. Since i don’t have the patience to write an essay on the subject, I’ll leave it up to someone who did: http://www.rose-tainted.net/ico/essays/petereliot_annotation.html

    “It’s a completely unconventional narrative, I’d agree. It’s a very basic story, I’d agree.”

    It’s not basic by any stretch of the mark. The only people who consider story like that “basic” are the kind of gamers who consider games with stories like the convoluted messes of MGS4 and FFVII good storytelling.

    Am I in bizzaro world ?? WTF !!! Evil is getting a 360 and im agreeing with MICHAEL ???!!!

    #85 6 years ago
  86. No_PUDding

    Michael they are intentionally understated becuase Ueda focuses on communicating other things. I am not saying the stories are bad, they just are not even slightly complex. Hence basic.

    Even the themes at play are very basic.

    It’s not becuase it’s trying to appeal to idiots either, it’s just becuase it’s trying to create depth in places individual to games. And narrative is needed as a basic driver, that is all it is intended for both ICO and Shadow of the Colossus.

    If you want to explain it to me, rather than refer me to an essay. Yes I’d be happy to read. But it’s futile, becuase we clearly have differing views on the games. I just don’t see how you could justify ‘unparalled narrative’. It’s unconventional and different. Not unparalleled.

    Conditions 1 and 2 mean it’ll never happen anyway.

    1: Short of removing the lights on the front of the 360 RRoD will always be a possibility.

    2: The next step will be making a slimline 360… which will require an external PSU initially anyway.

  94. No_PUDding

    Yeah, really who knows I guess. Sony will have to price-drop eventually.

    And they still have their ‘bigger’ franchises on the way.

    Even now things could change on who comes first and last. I’d prefer see Nintendo fad wear out, and see MS come first than a non-game machine. But I should stop being so defensive of the industry as I like it. I am sure there can be lots of good in casual introduction.

    I feel the same way No_Pud even if it is M$. Nintendo hasn’t done anything special besides that damn wii mote. hey Nintendo sorry i already got all the NES,SNES,and64 classics all on one machine. So your Virtual Console means shit to me. Miis are shit,wii channels are messy and ugly,plus the machine isn’t next gen.

    Lets be honest if Sony re-released the ps2 as a new revision with the same capabilities as the wii from the start they would have murdered Nintendo like they did to sega.

    #99 6 years ago
  100. No_PUDding

    Lets just leave Sony out of it for a second, I think we should be less critical of Nintendo.

    And another thing, people down on the Wiimote, you guys can be quiet. Just becuase devs haven’t implemented the controls well, doesn’t mean it’s shit.

    Next generation, everyone will do a Wii in terms of hardware, becuase development of games on anymore powerful tech will not be viable at all. So it’s not the hadrware issue either.

    The thing you should be cross with is Nintendo’s intention to chase the casual, and completely alienate the core in the process.

    And now if you choose to be cross with that, instead see the 7 and 8 yuear olds, girls especially, getting into this medium early on. They will grow up and want the same interaction, on a more mature level, so it can only be a positive thing for the future of gaming. Just not the present of gaming as we know it.
