The Dtoid community's E3 2014 predictions: Sony

11:00 AM on 06.08.2014 // mrandydixon

Can they continue the hype from last year?

Last week, we asked you dainty Dtoiders to predict what you think will happen at each of the major press conferences going into E3. Earlier this week, we shared your thoughts on Microsoft. Next up, your predictions for Sony's big show!


PS Now, no The Last Guardian, and some The Last of Us Remastered gameplay. And hopefully Morpheus.

The Tundra:

Transistor for Vita? PLEASE?!

My Landlord:

PlayStation All Stars Battle Royale 2.

Barry Kelly:

Valkyria Chronicles collection for Vita and PS4.

PS1 and PS2 backwards compatibility for PS4 via some free software emulators rolled into firmware along with launching the PS1 and 2 classics on PSN for PS4. [Oh god yes, please do this. -Andy]

And nothing even remotely resembling a launch date for Project Morpheus.

Anti jimmyx:

I would anticipate their continual tightrope act between cockiness and confidence. The latest generation is just beginning and things could change at any time. I would hope they focus on games since that is my primary interest with their products.

As I said in the Microsoft article, no matter what Sony actually does reveal, there will be more than enough to needlessly pan and critique. It is a pity that people choose to sever themselves from some potentially wonderful experiences. [Welcome to the Internet, sadly. -Andy]

Shane Saiyan:

The Last Guardian revamped as a PS4 game, and probably the next God of War. [Wouldn't it be hilarious if TLG was teased again, but still as a PS3 game? -Andy]

Woody Jang:

Rockstar reveals AGENT for... PS3?!?!?! [Haha, yes. This exactly. -Andy]


I’m hope it doesn’t focus on Morpheus too much, not that Morpheus is uninteresting, but how do you even show something like that off at an E3 conference? It could be like that year they were pushing 3D; not very fun to watch at home.

Mostly though I just want to see that FF15 is actually going to happen with some new footage or gameplay, just give me something concrete. And Project Beast, of course.


Uncharted 4, Syphon Filter: Kill Strain, Beast Souls, The Last Guardian, Media Molecule's new IP, the God of War spiritual successor, Gravity Rush 2, Sly Cooper 5, MediEvil 3, Ape Escape 4, a new LocoRoco or Patapon, PS Classics on PS4, Killzone: Shadow Fall on PS Plus, Minecraft Vita bundle, PS3 price drop, Vita TV Western Release. [How thorough! Check out his full prediction blogs here and here. -Andy]


I have a giant list of games I think they could show, but a lot of them are games we already know about (Destiny, Deep Down). If we're talking strictly "new" then...

Crash Bandicoot, God of War IV, Guerrilla IP, Second Son DLC, Syphon Filter, The Last Guardian (yes we know it's real but it's worth mentioning), Media Molecule IP, Ninja Theory IP, PaRappa the Rapper, Demon's Souls 2, Quantic Dream IP, Resistance, Ultra Street Fighter IV (we know of the game but I think it'll get a PS4 port), and Uncharted 4.

And I'm sure we'll get a reminder that that Marvel show Powers is coming exclusively to PS4.


I'm expecting a bit of a letdown from Sony's conference, at least compared to last year. I don't doubt that they'll come out with some good games, but I'm not expecting the same level of hype from last year's conference.

Also, in hindsight, last year's conference wasn't all that great. A lot of people remember it fondly because of them ripping MS a new one, but taken in a vacuum, one could make the argument that what they showed wasn't overly impressive.

One thing I can guarantee though. There will be montages... lots and lots of montages.


Considering the only reason Sony "won" E3 last year was because Microsoft locked itself in the car, Sony has to do more if they want to do good this year. Right now, it doesn't look all that good for them, since their big game, The Order: 1886, was pushed to next year. Still, that doesn't mean they're out yet, it just means they have their work cut out for them.

As for games that I think we'll see, Final Fantasy XV and Kingdom Hearts III are a given, a demo of Destiny like Call of Duty with Microsoft, plus Uncharted 4 and maybe some DriveClub. They might talk a bit about their VR, and of course the Playstation Vita will be forgotten, like it always is.


I imagine we'll see the new Syphon Filter by Sony Bend, a glimpse of Santa Monica's next project, a full reveal of Guerrilla's new IP, blowouts for The Order: 1886 and Uncharted 4, and potentially some news from Quantic Dream or Media Molecule.

I imagine they'll make some fuss for PS Now and Morpheus, but at this point I think they clearly understand that games matter more than features and media stuff.

Of course, the likes of Ubisoft and Square Enix will make an appearance too, likely with AC Unity and some Final Fantasy news, respectively.

What I don't expect: Vita announcements. This will be a PS4 show, to try and negate the positive buzz Microsoft makes earlier that morning, and they'll likely talk more about the Vita at Gamescom, but even then I don't expect much.


After announcing Bully 2 and showing off Persona 5 gameplay, the stage will mysteriously go dark. Then, from the very heavens will descend The Last Guardian. Crowd goes wild. And just as everybody collectively agreed that this was, indeed, the best E3 yet, Gabe Newell rolls out on stage. He doesn't even need to say anything. Crowd. Goes. INSANE. No one survives.

Just in advance: Totally called it.

Romo Metaxxas:

Probably excitement and games that gamers would be really hyped for.

Jason Sikes:


Thanks to everyone who shared their predictions! Stay tuned as we continue our recaps for Nintendo and third parties!

Got Deadpool, Arkham Asylum and BioShock 1 and 2 all for 30$. Not to bad for going Black Friday shopping late.

If you haven't played Tales from the Borderlands yet, GO BUY IT! By far the funniest game I have ever played, and the characters and narrative are incredibly well written. Very few memes unlike BL2 by the way.
James Internet Ego avatarJames Internet Ego
Played all of Life is Strange today in one sitting. Bloody hell. You should all play it. Only game this year to make me cry. Bravo developers. Possibly the most valuable thing I've ever bought for £10.

Last night, got farther than ever in Wasteland 2. This is my third playthrough-once thru beta, once through the orig version, now on Directors cut. Worth the restart, and it speaks highly of the game that I like it enough to do this. DAMONTA HERE I COME!

GUYS HELP I KEEP BUYING MORE AMIIBO. Today it was Little Mac, since he went back up on Gamestop's website. I probably would have gotten Captain Falcon as well if I wasn't already running a little short on cash.
BigDoniel avatarBigDoniel
50 hours in and I can safely say that Xenoblade is the best JRPG I've played in years. Should hopefully be finished in time for X too!

One job down on day I should have off, now for the other job.

I beat Murasaki Baby on PS Vita. Easy 100% trophy. That ending theme tho.

I have 34 games in my Steam queue alone, 4 on xbone, and a handful on handhelds. I have 3 days to make a dent. Time's up, let's do this!

Community Question: To make up for yesterday, I decided to ask a second Community Question today. Have you taken advantage of any Black Friday deals today? If so, what did you purchase? Feel free to share pictures of your spoils, if you have any.
Jiraya avatarJiraya
Some Black Friday artwork arrived today ! [img][/img]
Lawman avatarLawman
Black Friday is getting to me. All these games I kinda, maybe want that are at anywhere between respectable and deep discounts, but I'm not sure if I want to bite. I'm wondering if Godzilla's worth $12? After checking review scores, I'm not sure.

Mission complete![IMG][/IMG]

Black Friday slowly seems to creep its way onto Continental Europe, but I'm not complaining! I managed to get my grubby little paws on a new physical copy of The Wonderful 101 for €20! Thanks, America!
Archelon avatarArchelon
Community Question: Since I missed yesterday, I am going to do something a little different today. Are there any questions you would like to ask me for a change? If so, please feel free. I may add a second Community Question later today, as well.

Isn't PES 2016 Free-to-Play model just the demo with extra crap thrown in?

While partially responsible for one of the biggest jokes in the metal, Cold Lake by Celtic Frost, Curt Bryant is doing the soundtrack to the game Slain!. I'm digging the shitty garage band vibe.
