So, did you guys vote or did you just stay at home playing Halo 4? One will determine the fate of our country for the next four years while the other the fate of the universe. From that perspective the choice seems rather simple. But enough about that! Onwards to the industry’s current juggernaut. After that, get ready for a full on console launch come this Sunday. Too bad you won’t see any of those games here. I’m saving those for a special Coming Soon this Friday.
If you ever wanted proof that publishers hold back their releases until the magical holiday season, take a look at this week’s releases. Now compare it with about three weeks ago. Or the week before that. Or the week before that. Get my drift? Despite the HD consoles’ resurgence in releases, the Wii looks to be skipping out on this week waiting for God knows what. The 360 and PS3, however, are seeing some fairly big name releases this week betraying their impatience in waiting for November to roll around.
Joining the ranks of various PS3 exclusives like Resistance 3 and Killzone 3, Gears of War 3 will also support 3D TVs. “It felt like something we wanted to have,” Says producer Rod Fergusson. “It was a feature we didn’t want to be deficient in. When you look at Gears 1, it was what people used to demo HD at the time.”
It’s been a long and incredible day, but we’re not even close to calling it a night! More E3 because, frankly, when can you ever get enough? It’s Sony’s turn in the spotlight, let’s see what they’ve got to show us.
The currently in public beta Socom 4 is set to be released on April 19th. If you pick up a copy you’re going to find an extra surprise in that Blu-Ray case, a voucher for the Resistance 3 beta.
