E3 is almost upon us which means it’s time to predict what’s going to be announced. In terms of Playstation, they already set the stage for what to expect, but that doesn’t mean they’ll announce more stuff. Here are some of my predictions for other possible announcements.
The Big Four
Thanks to an official post on the Playstation Blog, we already know that the main games they’ll be focusing on are Spider-Man, Death Stranding, The Ghosts of Tsushima, and The Last of Us: Part II. While Spider-Man already has a release date for September 6th, It’s possible that the other three will at least get release timeframes. The Last of Us: Part II and Ghosts of Tsushima could get 2019 release windows while Death Stranding could come out either towards the end of 2019 or Spring 2020 at the latest. Another possibility is that gameplay could be revealed for all of them too. We’ve only seen gameplay for Spider-Man so it’d be great to see what the other three look like in action.
Since this past December, PS VR has sold around 2 million units and it’s a sure bet that we’ll get some more VR announcements. There’s already a lot of new games to expect and it’s possible to get more indie titles and first party software. Supermassive Games did Bravo Team so it’s possible that they have something else in the works. Companies such as Bethesda could have something else too after releasing Skyrim VR and Doom VFR.
Besides those four, they’re bound to announce other games. From Software’s new game, Dreams by Media Molecule, and Day’s Gone sound likely. There’s also possible announcements from SuperMassive Games, Sony London, and maybe Blupoint Games. Other than first party software, third parties are bound to have a presence. Square-Enix could show more footage for Kingdom Hearts III and the Final Fantasy VII remake. Since Red Dead Redemption 2 will have exclusive content on PS4, it’s likely that it’ll be shown off and it would make sense for Spyro: The Reignited Trilogy to be shown off too. There’s always the possibilities of Rocksteady’s next game to show up or Borderlands 3 to make a cameo. Indies games are also bound to make an appearance since they always have a strong showing with Playstation.
Of all the services Playstation offers, it seems like Playstation Vue and Playstation Now don’t get mentioned as much. For one month of PS Now, it costs $19.99 and $44.99 for a three month subscription. As for Vue, the prices range from $39.99 a month all the way up to $74.99. Possible announcements could be decreases in prices for both of them and more benefits for each service. The last thing I can think of is the the chance of PSN name changes finally being confirmed. It’s been talked about forever and now seems like the time to make it official. Let people change their name once for free and then charge people for extra name changes.
Those are all the predictions I can think of at the moment. I’ll be attending my first E3 this year and I’m so excited. I’ll try to see as much as I can and then post my impressions ASAP. Thanks for reading and I’d love to hear any other predictions you guys have!
