    With most developers gearing up for the next generation but not yet able to show anything, this year's E3 is likely to be even more rubbish than usual.

    Ubisoft will be pimping Far Cry 3 as their main title. Expect multi-player demo on stage. And no doubt more bloody Rabbids.

    I think MS will go a bit lower key on Kinect this year. Will only be mentioned in regards to Fable: The Journey.

    Cut Ubi a bit of slack. They surprised us last year with Rayman.

    A suite of "hilarious", "biting" and "satirical" infographics featuring six military FPSes, claiming that "creativity in gaming is dead", ignoring the seven wildly different games, none of which are either first-person or shooter, all of which have come from one single publisher's conference, as well as the other elventy hundred other games that aren't military FPSes from around the show.

    Major technological advancement. We can now watch the show on Xbox Live.

    Xbox: Entertainment Evolved

    No games then.

    Oooh, that'll be nice. Normally G4 carries the event. Is this basically saying that Spike is taking over for them?

    Rumours are going around about Luigi's Mansion 2 also coming to the Wii U. Seems unlikely in some ways, as it's been in development for the 3DS for some time now, but seems possible considering Shigeru Miyamoto is heavily involved with the development.

    Whilst i'd probably stick to the 3DS version, it would be another welcome launch title. Especially for those who have skipped over the handheld.

    Favourite rumour/speculation so far is Rockstar news-bombing the conference the day before it starts with a GTA V trailer and release date.

    There's a bit of a cloud hanging over the Wii U at the moment.

    Speaking to a mate on XBL last night, a mate of his works for a UK studio who are working on a WiiU title. 'Apparently' it's struggling to reach the performance of current gen and Nintendo have downwardly revised the specs.

    Still can't fathom how they can have ps360 beating power, whilst also streaming to a tablet and also launching at an affordable price - whilst still making a profit on every unit sold.

    Bring on E3!

    Even though they have said that they won't I expect Microsoft to announce the next gen xbox. I just dont think they would let nintendo steal the show. Sony might too but it's a slim chance because I get the feeling they are not as fast along with their next gen effort.

    Maybe sony will announce a PS3+Vita bundle call it PlayStationU and allow full remote play of all current PS3 games and enhanced features on 1st party software that linked with the Vita.

    Not likely but would put a cat amongst the pigeons.

    I want to see some good new games and there will be plenty but the highlight of E3 is really the fan rage and the fuck ups.
