E3 Predictions 2015 – Sony

This time of year is basically Christmas for gamers. News, reveals, surprises and teases all appear during E3 that get players hyped for the next wave of games coming to their favourite system. Here at Player2 we thought it would be fun to look at the upcoming E3 and make some predictions as to what we will see coming. So Matt, Stevie, Adam, Stephen and Jenn sat down and thought about what we will see, what we might see and what would be nice to see. We will be doing one predictions article per conference in the lead up to E3. This entry sees us talk all things Sony. 

E3 Predictions 2015 – Sony

Stevie McDonald

Safe bet

Indie game dev hype – In my opinion, the safest bet of all of E3 (my Nintendo predictions withstanding) is that Sony will continue their love fest with indie game developers. After spending almost all of E3 2014 taunting Microsoft like an even more annoying French knight, it’s safe to assume Sony will continue to ride this train for the foreseeable future – and with carriages like The Witness, No Man’s Sky and Armello, who can blame them?

Fairly likely

Uncharted – It’s all but certain we’ll see some Uncharted action, whether it be a possible update of the previous three games for PS4 or more footage from the upcoming fourth entry to the series. I, for one, am hanging out for whatever bones they may throw – having convinced myself Uncharted IV would get a November ’15 release I’m going to need something good to tide me over until “Q1” 2016.

Wishful Thinking

The Last Guardian – Yes, it’s the easy target, but it’s late and I’m tired.

E3 Predictions 2015 - Sony
Will this be the year? Probably not.

Matt Hewson

Safe Bet

Project Morpheus is sure to get a big showing in the Sony Conference despite the difficulties in displaying this sort of tech on stage. With this coverage will come the first selection of games that are designed to use this exciting VR technology. This of course is the most important thing because no matter how much potential any new tech has it is only as good as the games that support it *cough* Kinect *cough*

Fairly Likely

I can’t wait to see more of Ninja Theory’s new game Hellblade. I have always loved their attention to detail, entertaining stories and vibrant worlds. Also with the release of the DmC reboot they have proven finally that they can do entertaining combat as well. Of all the games that are likely to show up at E3 this year this is one I am truly excited for.

Wishful Thinking

I would love to hear the words “Naughty Dog Presents” and “Crash Bandicoot” in the same sentence. Crash was my introduction to the Playstation and the fond memories I have for the game still warm the cockles of my heart to this day. More Naughty Dog Crash (not dodgy Activision Crash) would be most welcome.

E3 Predictions 2015 - Sony
There is no doubting that Hellblade will look stunning

Stephen del Prado

Safe Bet

Sony celebrate the success of Bloodborne by revealing some of the details surrounding the upcoming expansion content, including a face off with Cthulhu itself. Everybody hopes there are no more Chalice Dungeons.

Fairly Likely

After a teaser for Uncharted 4 and the Uncharted Collection for PS4 that was just announced even include Golden Abyss so players can get frustrated with touch controls on their PS4 controller. Sony wouldn’t want them to miss out on the worst parts of that game, after all.

Wishful Thinking

Dark Cloud 3 is announced exclusively for PlayStation 4, with Level 5 and Studio Ghibli teaming up once again for the artwork. Promises to be the ultimate combination of dungeon crawler, city builder, fishing sim, golf sim, photo sim and insect battling sim the world has ever seen.

E3 Predictions 2015 - Sony
Everyone wants to see more of “Old Man Drake”

Adam Rorke

Safe Bet

Street Fighter 5 – When Sony managed to secure SFV as a console exclusive (excluding the PC) it pretty much outlined how the next 5-6 years would go on the FGC eSports scene. I feel that Sony are going to be giving MS the big middle PR finger at every given opportunity, and E3 is the best place to do it.

Fairly Likely

Morpheus – I think I may be caught up too much in the VR hype train here but I feel the time is right for all the big players to bring out their VR solution … that is if they plan to release it during the Christmas rush.

Wishful Thinking

God of War … something – At this point, I don’t care if it’s just Kratos fighting a giant golden chicken, the God of War series is beyond brilliant and I always want more.

E3 Predictions 2015 - Sony
Will Kratos make a showing at E3?

Jenn Christodoulou

Safe Bet

Uncharted 4- holy hell this game looks absolutely amazing, and if I don’t find out more about it soon I might actually scream. We saw a bunch of renderings of Drake a while back and damnit, I think it’s about time we got to see a little more.

Fairly Likely

Project Morpheus- Somebody every year has to announce something big that’s going to “change the face of gaming as we know it” and since Sony has declared plans to release their VR headset next year, maybe Project Morpheus will be this years “something big”. I’m curious to see how they utilise it within gaming and what sorts of video games are created for it, so hopefully we can find out more at E3.

Wishful Thinking

Until Dawn- This isn’t exactly a ‘pie in the sky’ hope, as we know it’s coming, but normally when I get excited about a video game nothing seems to eventuate from it. I love the premise behind this, even though it’s super creepy and not at all normally the type of game I would play. But I can imagine sitting down to this with a group of people screaming at the character to run or hide, and it just seems like a whole lot of fun.

E3 Predictions 2015 - Sony
Until Dawn looks to get the heart racing

  1. My top 5 Sony 2015 E3 wishlist:

    5). PS1 classics finally announced cross buy/play on PS4 (they’re cross buy/play on PSP, Vita, and PS3, but NOT the newest most powerful PS4)
    4). New Resistance, Wipeout, Twisted Metal, or Jet Moto/Splashdown reboot (water/wave racing genre is wide open empty for the taking!!!)
    3). New God of War(4?) PS4 trailer + release date + GOW4 demo announced exclusive with GOW3 Remastered
    2). I had the Uncharted Trilogy HD Remaster on here, but since that’s just been announced, I’ll settle for ANYTHING Naughty Dog and/or Uncharted related 🙂
    1). Last Guardian RE-reveal
