Sony E3 Preview
Let’s hope Sony leaves the tech-and-spec talk out of their conference this year and keep it on the games, please!
Sony had a healthy line-up of titles last year, but little is known about where Sony plans to take the Playstation 4 in 2015. A new Uncharted is expected this year, but it has already gotten a lot of play during other Sony conferences, so it is safe to assume Nathan Drake won’t lead this year’s show in slew for new titles to lead the charge into 2016.
Sony has placed an emphasis on indie titles and you can assume they will take up a portion of the press conference. In fact, look to Steam on PC for the most popular indie titles and you may have a teaser for what is to come for the Playstation Network Store and Playstation Vita.
Evolution Championship Series in July seems to be a better fit for Sony to showcase Street Fighter V, but Final Fantasy XV will take center stage and it will probably be the their lead title going into 2016.
Third party contenders will probably range from more Destiny content from Bungie to an appearance from Gearbox Software’s Battleborn. Mirror’s Edge 2 seems like a fit for the PS4 conference as well. However, most of the third-party showcases could show up at either Microsoft or Sony’s, but a major title that isn’t a new Call of Duty or Assassin’s Creed game is bound for Sony’s stage too.
Sony’s press conference will be intriguing for sure, as their 2015 and 2016 seem bare and fans should expect a few surprises on both the PS4 and the Vita given last year’s announcements.
