    I so hope they finally show the console version of Battlefield 3. I know it looks sick as hell on PC, but i really would like to see how the console version is shaping up.

    With games like that showing at EA’s press conference, I think they’re press event will be the best.

    Ive lost all interest in World of Star Wars, bought Rift over the weekend and enjoying it. A nice blend between WoW and WAR.

    I hope (and doubt) that there will be multiplayer footage of BF3 at e3, so /yawn

    @8 So is 75% of the gaming world ;)

    Though I don’t think either BF3/MW3 will show multiplayer :(

    Correct me if i’m wrong but isn’t E3 the last chance for them to show the remaining features for all of their games? I mean, there’s not going to be any other show ’till e.g. BF3 launches. So this is basically the last chance to show us the shinies right?

    But that one would be for the MS conference i bet, cause it’s 360 exclusive. You mean Project Kingdoms right?

    Um, no, I think you have that wrong. I would guess more people would be waiting for BF3 and MW3 that Mass Effect 3 (considering the way they sell compared to ME2 and ME1). But I hope they do show the console versions and multiplayer; it’s been a while now, we need to know what those 2 look like.

    EA is shaping up to have a great E3. Good luck to them, because they have some of my favorite franchises; don’t screw them up!

    @10: Nope, Gamescom is in August and I think Tokyo Game Show is before November too?

    @ME3: Actually, I am more hyped about ME3 than BF3 and MW3 both together. :>

    E3 and gamescom will be the big ones. EA does have a TGS showcase – announcing Shadows of the Damned last year – but it leaves the big stuff for LA and Cologne.
