E3 2012 Press Conference Schedule:

All times are in Pacific Standard.

Monday, June 4

Microsoft - 9:30 AM

Electronic Arts - 1:00 PM

Ubisoft - 3:00 PM

Sony - 6:00 PM

Tuesday, June 5

Nintendo - 9:00 AM

So what games & announcements are you most excited for? What things do hope are announced or what do you want to see that hasn't been announced yet? Predictions? Who will fail to impress and who will have the most interesting conference?

Me? I'm excited to see Sleeping Dogs, Just Cause 3, GTA V (gotta love the open world/sandbox games!), Dishonered, Resident Evil 6, The Last of Us, God of War: Ascension , maybe Overstrike (looking like a good Co-op Shooter), Borderlands 2, Tomb Raider & Hitman.

Not excited for Assassin's Creed 3. I think it's time for a new IP. This would have been more exciting if they hadn't milked the series with Brotherhood and Revelations, in my opinion.

I think Microsoft is going to spend at least 65% of their conference on the Kinect. Looking forward to more cringe worthy acting. Halo 4 will be there obviously. I thought Halo 3 was the end, you know, since it was advertised as "Finish the Fight", but i guess the fight is not finished yet, because they are planning on a new trilogy(?). I thought ODST was ok, and Reach kind of reinvigorated the franchises mechanics and gameplay a LITTLE bit, but i don't see the appeal in the franchise anymore. Looking forward to seeing if they have any new IPs up their sleeve, but i wouldn't hold my breath.

Sony... What do i say about Sony... Well, i wish them luck since a lot will be riding on their conference. They have a few exclusives coming out. I am looking forward to seeing God of War Ascension, though i would rather them have made a new story and moved on from Kratos. I also think the Online is a dumb idea and will just detract the team from putting their full effort into the single player. I can't wait to see the Last of Us in action. And for Vita owners i hope they get more games to justify their purchase.

Nintendo... Well, i hope the specs of Nintendo's new system are to everyone's satisfaction, though i know before their conference is up fanboys will be attacking it already. Hopefully they show off more HD Mario and Zelda, even if they don't have either ready yet, anything to show that they are serious about the move to HD and what we can expect to see from them in terms of First Person Exclusives. I had a crazy idea about Nintendo doing an M rated first party game, but i quickly removed it from my mind. Hopefully 3rd party support is strong and that THQ (Metro: Last Night) isn't the first of many to drop support for the Wii U already. I think Nintendo will keep the system price at $400 or below.

Hopes? Maybe Sony and Microsoft will announce the PS4/Orbis and the Xbox 720/Xbox 8(infinity)/Durango. New Exclusive first party IPs we've never heard of would be nice too.

Sony will show off their new mid-game ad interrupting cloud service.

I would like to see lots of info on the Wii-U, a big price drop on the 360 along with an announcement of the NextBox and a ton of games for the Vita.

And Microsoft will highlight their Amazon streaming service (for paying gold members, of course.)

I am most excited for Assassin's Creed 3, especially after Ubisoft released the awesome games AssBro and AssRev.

I LOLed at AssBro. I'm also looking forward to Epic unveiling their new Unreal Engine 4.

It's odd how the PS3 has enough RAM to add mid-game ads but not a cross game chat client.

Mid-game ads? Are you off your meds again, John?

I know you track every Sony discussion, how could you forget about it?

I am actually buying a Slim PS3 after E3, but Sony can forget about it if they pull that ad bull****. Sony would truly be insane to even consider such a thing.

Actually, what are the chances of a price drop for the PS3 Slim being announced at E3?

Probably not likely since it just had one.

I am guessing the PSP will drop to $99 and the Vita will get bundled with a 16gb memory card.
