For the most part, the important areas of E3 are over. The big three came and presented. Some gamers were impressed, while others were disappointed. A lot of gamers felt there were a few things missing from E3 this year. Here are some of the announcements gamers would have liked to have seen or heard about.
GTA V-I expected Rockstar to have something to show at E3. Gamers have only seen a glimpse of GTA V. We know the game is going back to Los Santos and seems to have the feeling and look like GTA San Andreas. Come on Rockstar, get gamers hyped!
The Legend of Zelda Wii U/HD-Gamers were expecting something from Nintendo. We saw a tech demo last year at E3. The announcement of a Zelda game for the Wii U as a launch title would sell consoles like crazy. But I’m guessing Nintendo isn’t planning a Zelda Wii U game anytime soon.
The Last Guardian-Gamers were hyped up about this title. Team ICO keeps teasing gamers with this. Even though there hasn't been very much good news regarding the game recently, I'm sure gamers would like to think that someday, maybe at E3 2013 we’ll see something. Or maybe not and this game will be destined to become the next Duke Nukem Forever.
Bioshock Infinite-Gamers were hoping to see this game this fall. But it looks like BioShock Infinite will be released in February of 2013. It would have been nice to see some more footage of the game.
No price cut on the 360-Gamers were thinking by the time E3 rolled around the 360 would drop in price again. I personally think $150 is a must own price. But I guess we’ll have to wait for the holidays.
Vita’s Support-Sony should know by now that if it wants people to buy the Vita it needs to drop the price and show some games. Gamers want original IPs, or something. Sony's presentation at E3 told us very little for the future of the Vita.
More information on the WII U-The two most important parts to this are a price or launch date and both were absent. Nintendo spent most of its presentation going on about the Wii U. But a few things were passed over. There was not much talk about online play. Gamers saw lots of Mario but no Zelda/Metroid/Star Fox. So for now gamers will speculate on the price, personally I think the system will be around $300-$350.
Animal Crossing-Nothing was shown. I'm sure by now gamers would have expected some sort of announcement by Nintendo about this game. Instead gamers didn't see anything. A game of this magnitude would be a system seller.
Hopefully, in the next few months some of the unanswered questions gamers had will be answered. Until then, gamers and the media can only speculate on some of these.
