Sony is in a mess. 2011, so far, has been nothing short of a nightmare for them. Their online service, PlayStation Network recently got hacked, and was down for a MONTH. Nobody could play any games online, and as if that wasn’t bad enough, all PSN users’ credit card information was at risk. When PSN finally did manage to come back up, the PS Store was facing problems, and it’s only now, a week after PSN recovered, that the Store is back up.

So it’s kind of obvious that Sony have to have a stellar E3 conference this year so that they can win back the confidence of their fans and followers. Fortunately, they look all set to deliver one of their best conferences in recent memory- they’re set to shows the lineup of the NGP, the price, release date and final name of their new handheld system, not to mention the upcoming PS3 games.

If Sony does stuff right this time around, I’m sure they can not only win E3 2011, but recover from the horrible state they’re in right now as well.

Here are our predictions for Sony’s conference…

PSN Debacle Apology

Certainty: Absolutely Certain

After what happened with PSN, Sony has lost the little goodwill it had left. Chances are they’ll spend a good ten minutes or so apologizing about what happened with PSN, and assure everybody that nothing like this will ever happen again. They’ll tell everybody about the free stuff that’s available to all PSN users as an apology gift, and talk about how PSN is the premier online service. Of course, no one will take them seriously.

NGP Price, Release Date and Launch Lineup Announced

Certainty: Most Likely

The NGP was revealed almost half a year ago, and we know practically nothing about it right now. The launch lineup has not been confirmed, the full third party support list has not been given, and more importantly, the price and the release date have not yet been revealed. And I’m ready to bet my index finger that they’ll announce it during their conference. The NGP will most probably be priced somewhere between $249 – $299, and the release date will either be Fall 2011, or Q1 2012.

The launch lineup will most probably feature a host of first party games, along with a few third party ones, which will most probably be yearly releases. Right now we know that Reality Fighters, Uncharted: Golden Abyss, Sound Shapes, Little Deviants, WipEout 2048, Hustle Kings and Super StarDust Delta will most probably be launch titles. Sony will most probably confirm these to be launch titles for the system (though there is a slight chance that Golden Abyss might be a launch window game), along with other games like Call of Duty NGP, which was announced the day NGP was announced, and maybe even FIFA 12 and/or PES 12. Other games like Madden and NHL might also make it to the NGP.

Awesome Stuff that you might be interested in

  • A sequel to heavenly sword would be… heavenly 😉 lol.

  • Resistance multiplayer was never a shameful disgrace its not the best but i kept me and alot of other gamers coming back for more.

  • This is the biggest MS dicksucking site..motherfucker there is nothig on the suck box 360 except gears 3 in september

    PS3 already had KZ3.Infamous 2, MLB , MsA and you are talking trash ..bastard fucker

    this site is owned by a Jew who posts as Rashid Sayed and shubhankar. neither the indians nor the arabs like shit products like the suck box 360

    • That was uncalled for. Whether they like the 360 more than the ps3 or not, it gives no reason for you to make stereotypical racial jokes about them. To the topic. I think this prediction list is pretty good (minus a couple) and shows no microsoft bias whatsoever. Good article, Shubhankar.

  • Mirror’s Edge 2

  • Most Wanted Announcement: Heavenly Sword 2

    The Best Games To Come, That I Want More Info On: Uncharted 3, The Last Guardian

    I just hope NGP doesn’t take up half the show, I have no interest in portable gaming. They should have a second E3, just for portables. Nintendo and Sony always end up with longer shows than needed, and Microsoft is by far the worst candidate to have extended time on their single console alone… since they have by far the worst game library. Get ready for more timed exclusives and DLC.

  • i hate myself for sayin this but im still hopeing for a ff7 remake on the ngp…or vista…or whatever they call it

  • You ever notice how the only people who denigrate the 360 are those who don’t own the console? Tells you something. Me, I own a ps3 and a 360. So, according to your logic, I guess that makes me better than you losers because I own both. I can tell you unequivocally that when psn went down it didn’t really bother me because I had live to fall back on. I never put credit card info on the network (or microsoft’s for that matter) so that aspect did not affect me in the least. And there are plenty of games I will be buying for both systems the second half of this year, which I guess the rest of you will not be enjoying. My only hope is that these worthless hackers don’t strike on or around 11-1-2011. If I miss online uncharted 3 action I will be looking for someone’s blood. My most anticipated for 2011 early 2012 are Mass Effect 3 (on 360), Uncharted 3 (PS3), and Gears of War 3 (360), in that order. There are many others of course, but those are without a doubt my top 3. Doesn’t make you smart or cool to hate on a particular console, just makes you a fool missing out.

    • ok dude . . . stop bragging that you have both consoles.

  • “The multiplayer component of the Resistance series has always been a shameful disgrace” –
    What have you been smoking you TW@ , Resistance 1 remains to this day the best multiplayer experience ever on the PS3. Gameplay was excellent ( as good as all the C.O.Ds & M.Ws except maybe MW1 ) and the online set up ( Lobbies,chat,friends list,stats,DEDICATED SERVERS) blew all the competition out of the water and made it a joy to play not the total clusterf%§k of bad connections , lagg issues and mind blowingly frustrating party making problems that EVERY MW and C.O.D has been ( I’ll stop there because I’m a big fan of MW , I could go on) . Nearly everyone who owned a PS3 played resistance 1 for two years straight ( partly due to a lack of games I’ll admit but not only by any means) . Resistance 2 was a poor multiplayer offering alright , Maps were poor and the biggest mistake made was trying to make it more like MW but failing miserably which left it in a mediocre no mans land that failed to live up to any of our expectations but even at that it was O.K and shouldn’t be described as a shameful disgrace !

  • First…. The 360 is shit, Secondly as Larry said the only good game coming out on the 360 is Gears Of War 3. I have a 360 and its just been collecting dust. Ever since Bungie killed Halo M$ is nothing more but a SUPED UP Wii.

  • Resistance 2’s multi-player wasn’t a “shameful disgrace.” It was one one of the best online multi-player back when R2 came out. Of course it didn’t age well when Call of Duty’s multi-player blew it out of the water.
    The best technical achievement about it’s multi-player was that even though 60 players were playing on a single map, the frame rate never dropped, the game ran smoothly.
