Square's leaning heavy on E3 this year, and it can't just be for Kingdom Hearts III.

^Are you referring to any particular update that happened in the last few days? Because I don't know where this update might be.

I think Chip is referring to the countdown. I still say set your expectations low for remake news, but I've shifted my realism clock from "it's probably not going to happen" to "likely", so I'll probably end up disappointed this year

Not based on the countdown specifically, I just have a feeling.

I'm considering taking Monday and Tuesday off for this if they let me.

Would be a glorious, long E3 weekend.

Looks like if we get FFVII Remake things it'll be during SE's panel and not Sony's. Still nice to have Death Stranding & TLOU2 confirmations.

Aren't all of those games first party though? Maybe they could still show third party games during the Sony Presentation.

I'm pretty sure they said that while their main focus would be their first party games they would be showing third party as well.

Yeah it was confirmed they'd do a deep dive on those four games specifically but there's still third party announcements and such.

The image in the EA conference reddit thread is accurate:



We expect them to be terrible but they always find a way to outdo themselves, wasting ten minutes on how they've ruined Command & Conquer.

I'm just really really REALLY wondering: if people KNOW E3 is going to be bad... why doesn't anyone say something to the guys who run it?

Can't they fix the issue?

I don't think E3's gonna be bad. There're plenty of things to look forward to, especially depending on what kind of games you're anticipating. The fighting game community is VERY likely to be seeing Smash, Soul Calibur, and Mortal Kombat which are ALL HUGE. They already got a DoA announcement the other day, too.

'Round these parts, it's just trepidation as to whether or not SE/Sony are gonna barely tease us with Remake stuff we want, quietly avoid the subject altogether, or actually deliver.

When it comes to the various presentations themselves, that's all just a matter of how well everyone's marketing teams have their shit together, and insofar as EA is concerned, they leave a LOT to be desired. They have a few good moments here and there, but overall, they're very disjointed in delivering a good presentation.

There're lots of reasons that it could be great, and lots of reasons that it could be a tire fire, which is basically true of every E3.

The thing about the EA conference is that they spend a lot of time on sports - if you draw a graph of their sales this makes sense because the large chunk of money they make from their sports line represents the large chunk of time they spend on it during E3.

The issue is that the demographic who watch E3 and are looking for announcements and hype etc. give zero shits about any of the sports games. EA giving them that large chunk of time doesn't change the fact that their annual sports line is going to sell a shitload, they're not going to sell significantly more by showing at E3. Like, the people who even buy and enjoy the sports games don't even want to see them showcased at E3. What's the point? The changes from game to game are tiny anyway.

They should be spending the majority of their time promoting Bioware, Star Wars and Indie titles and hell, even The Sims with a 5 minute segment on sports.

Last night they spent what they consider a large chunk of time on Anthem and I'm still ambivalent towards it. It seems clear to me they've pushed it back as far as they can to keep it in the fiscal year which is never a good sign. That game is going to decide Bioware's fate.
