If Ace Combat's online MP is good, then I am most likely going to get it.

I hope they fix all the bugs in Culdcept Saga for the US release. And Eternal Sonata is a definite too, the demo sold me.

Yup and specific threads for each of the companies. That was fun. Gamespot is again going to offer free live video feeds for at least the major conferences: http://e3.gamespot.com/live.html?tag=event_nav;live

Yeah we did. But there was so much whining about having to click through to a different forum that we cut it. Perhaps as the shows commence, it'll be wiser to keep this one as a general E3 thread, and for each major conference (Sony, MSFT, Nintendo) have a thread.

I would have to assume that this will be compatible with HD sets, whether rear projection or LCD and Plasma TVs?

Yes, via a Wii-like sensor, I believe.

I posted this in the PS3 thread, but I'm assuming if it is a price drop, Sony will be announcing it at E3. I hope it is true and Microsoft knows about it and pre-emptively announces a 360 price cut Tuesday night.

Did speedy and CC's 7/15 ad just break the lid off a $100 PS3 price cut that Sony hasn't announced yet? http://forum.dvdtalk.com/showthread.php?t=505548

GAMERS / MOVIE AFFICIANADOS: Please note $100 Price Break on Playstation 3 Game System which brings the price down to $499.99 // Remember that you can get 5 free Blu-Ray DVDs with purchase of any Blu-Ray Player / Game system by going here: http://www.bluraysavings.com/

On this week's On the Spot (Gamespot's video podcast), they showed off Ace Combat 6 and announced that the demo will hit Live next week to coincide with E3.

Well after reading a story over at Gamespot this years E3 may be far less monumental than last years. There has been major changes and how E3 has been scaled down by almost 70%. There were 400 exhibitors and 60K attendees last year. This year they're saying 36 companies and 5K "invited" guests.

In fact allot of publishers and retail (EB and Best Buy) have opted out both voluntary and un-voluntary. I think there will be some "wow" stuff but not like in the past. I mean on the 360 side we already have a good idea of what's coming later on thru the reat of the year and most have a list in hand. You know the list...Halo 3, Bioshock, Assassin's Creed, Mass Effect, Unreal 3, COD 4, and Medal of Honor: Airborne

What I hope to hear and see is some hidden gems or darkhorse games that could get on that must get list. From what I've seen a bit of those include...Ace Combat 6, End War, Area 51, Too Human, Stranglehold, Fallout 3, Dark Sector, Timeshift, Turning Point: Fall of Liberty, Sega Rally: Revo, Army of Two, Turok and Conan. All-inall for 360 owners we have allot to look forward to this year. So many choices only time and $$$ stand in our way.

BTW, G4 is also having live coverage of the big 3 conferences. I already have the DVR set, just in case. But I should be able to watch the Microsoft one live at 10:30pm CDT. I'm taking off Wednesday to take my daughter to see Harry Potter in the afternoon, so I'll make a point to watch Nintendo live at 11:00am and check out Sony's 12:30pm one later in the evening.

Regardless of the system price drop, their focus needs to be games. That's the main thing that is keeping the PS3 from selling. I want to see a lot more info on:

-Lair
-SOCOM
-R&C
-Uncharted
-Heavenly Sword
-any worthwhile RPG

I agree (and said as much in my speculation thread). Sadly, none of the titles you've listed hold any interest to me. The only announced PS3 game I've got my eye on, Final Fantasy XIII Versus, is years away.

Speaking of.. I wonder if Square-Enix will announce Kingdom Hearts II Final Mix+ for a US release. I've barely touched my import copy, so if they do I'll have to eBay it right away before the value disintegrates.
