What to Expect From E3 2010 – Sony

With a slew of great games having come out on the Playstation 3 this past year, Sony has proven themself a worthy competitor in the video game market. Fantastic exclusives have been the discs spinning in many PS3 owners’ systems, so this year at E3 I think we can expect to see a lot of talk of sequels. Killzone 3 has been announced and shown off a little bit already, as has LittleBigPlanet 2, but I expect there are still plenty of games up Sony’s sleeves that are waiting for a proper unveiling at their press conference this year. Infamous 2, Resistance 3, maybe some sort of Uncharted sequel (possibly on the PSP), are all big possibilities.

While it’s obvious that Sony has some great games coming down the line, one place they have yet to fully prove themselves is in their motion controller. Will the Playstation Move keep up with Microsoft’s Natal? Both companies are sure to push their respective motion controlled experiences at E3 this year, and on Sony’s end we’ll probably be seeing these games get a sizable chunk of time devoted to them at the press conference.

Sony’s Playstation Network has long been considered inferior to Xbox Live, but that may change after we find out more about the “premium service” Sony has coming up. Will the added features players get for subscribing be worth the fee? I predict Sony will clearly lay out all the details regarding this service at their conference, including the price. It will be interesting to me what exactly the added features will be. Cross game chat? Movie rentals? Free downloadable games, or perhaps some sort of rental service for them?

Another topic that several companies will be tackling this year is 3D. It’s all the rage now after the success of Avatar in theaters, but consumers have yet to be convinced that they need to go out and buy a 3D compatible TV. Will we see an “Avatar of games” – that is, a title so groundbreaking that it convinces everyone that 3D is worthwhile? I’m betting we won’t. Rather, I think all that will happen is some games will be announced as 3D compatible. Killzone 3 is already confirmed to be that, and some of the Ps3’s other big upcoming games will probably jump on the bandwagon as well. I’d be surprised if Sony unveils something 3D related that is truly spectacular at their press conference, but you never really know. I always find myself getting surprised at these press conferences every time.

    I think the real question should be, will MiCrOsOt’S natal be able to compete with Playstation Move?
