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!

Went to play MGSV, got prompted to download the MGO data; it's not on the PS Store yet. Or maybe it's Kojima-san's way of telling me it's not the real MGO data, but is instead a janitor who once protected me from a puddle of pee and now wears my face.

Recently watched the Cannon Films documentary, by the director of Not Quite Hollywood. Super entertaining, hilarious, and it almost made me want to watch some of the Cannon films. Almost.

Tip for those who have plasma TVs and are playing MGSV; go into settings and make the weapon icon only appears when you're aiming. I had to buy a new TV because the weapon icon got permanently burned into my plasma.

I was excited to learn one of my favorite Philip K. Dick novels, The Man in the High Castle, would be receiving its own TV show. After watching the pilot, I'm cautiously optimistic. Looking forward to the rest in November.

I'm going to be honest; this is my new favourite line in anything ever. GOTY 2015 and all that. Also cocks: [img][/img]
I thought Laura Kate's Destiny piece for Polygon was pretty neat.

Bungie have decided Kojima isn't the only one who can do 4th wall breaking shenanigans. Congratulations Destiny players, you're all now The Taken King.
I have (jokingly) wanted a remake/sequel to Geist. And then I went to YouTube to watch a longplay to see it in action again and thought, "nevermind!"

I'd been worried that Jim had been losing his sanity with all the Steam sludge he's always attacking. If you've been feeling the same way, good news. His new vid warmed that void and reminded me that I follow him because he had no sanity to start with. ;)

I went from listening to the soundtrack of SMT IV, to the soundtrack to Mario Kart 8, Smash 4, Fire Emblem, and now chilling with some Mother 3. All of it was pretty awesome by the way.

After the 11th, I'm going into cryosleep until SMT IV Final is out. I'm sure Mike, Occams and Strider can manage without me. [img][/img]

In need of another writer for my monthly blog on the PS Plus games. Given how nobody really reviews all of them (and after spending time downloading bad ones), I thought it'd be a nice time to try and do it for the PS users out there. So... Need some help
Sonic Dash 2: Sonic Boom is a thing...TT_TT
