    So what are desires, wishes and expectations for the week ahead? Thereís hopefully gonna be a megaton of announcements.

    For me, I just want to see Xbox put themselves back on the map in terms of first party titles.

    I'd like to see some (more) proper Next Gen only games revealed. If Sony do anything I'd like to see some PSVR2 stuff and God of War 2 gameplay.

    Nintendo - BOTW2 and new Switch hardware.

    MS - Flight Sim on SX, Minecraft RTX equivalent on console, Starfield and then some back compatibility features such as Res boost and FPS boost stuff. And halo infinite release date and new footage + the new Forza horizon.

    Third party - new "old school" Splinter Cell

    @richardiox I think seeing PSVR2 is hopeful, but I 100% would love to see it.

    Because if the PIGWHIP challenge, I would like to see nothing announced that will tempt me.

    I donít own a Microsoft Xbox console, so they can go fucking crazy with quality titles, and those odd little blinders that they are in the habit of releasing.

    As for Nintendo, Switch Pro will be enough. But I will love it if we see and get a release date for BOTW 2 and Metroid. A new Mario Kart or DLC for 8 would be nice.

    With Sony I am looking forward to GoW 2. The first game, in the new direction, was cracking. If they do mention new hardware, like PSVR 2, that would be cool. I have a little backlog of PS4 VR titles to get through. A Star Wars edition PS5 would be nice, just because it would look nice with my 360, and three PS4ís.

    I would love a release date for Lego SW Skywalker.

    Super Nintendo Switch Pro for me. And a Microsoft handheld console.

    Other than that not much, Iím pretty snowed with games already. But still looking forward to the show regardless.

    Hopes for Nintendo a release window (at least) for one of, if not both, for botw2 and/or metroid. Possibly one of them this year, but expect maybe one to be shown and a vague 2022 announced.

    Don't expect Sony to show at all, but would hope for more on god of war.

    Microsoft... I guess something next gen exclusive (not a fps) to tempt me to a series x would be hoped for. But I rarely turn on my 1x at the moment so can't say I care all that much. I hope we don't get an announcement that Elder scrolls 6 will be exclusive to xbox.

    @DakeyrasUK

    Elder Scrolls 6 will be exclusive to Microsoft platforms but not "Xbox only" I'd imagine.

    I'd love some new IPs that are primarily first person immersive-sims. Something story driven along the lines of Prey and Subnautica, but in a new setting would be great. More esoteric Indies like The Witness and Outer Wilds would be welcome too.

    More than anything I just want to see ambition and new ideas that offer new experiences. Clever environmental storytelling is also really key for me.

    Someone showing off next gen VR would be good too. Feels like we're due for another step change improvement.

    What we'll probably get is a load of safe cross gen sequels to third person action games.

    It'll probably be a new assassins creed set in space or something.

    Actually would be good to see what Ken Levine's new project is. He has the right pedigree to do something interesting.

    Would be nice if he resists the urge to fill every room with loads of cupboards, drawers, boxes and bins that mostly contain tiny amounts of ammo. For some reason, I can't relax until I've opened every single one.

    And of course my perennial desire for Rockstar to news bomb the whole thing with a GTA 6 announcement.

    Strictly speaking, there's no new Batman game. There's a Suicide Squad game by Rocksteady that really looks like it's gonna be a live service game. And a Gotham Knights game by WB Montreal that is more akin to a traditional Arkham game albeit in co-op, but for some stupid reason isn't canon.

    New stuff.

    While I'm normally quite excited about the E3 show season, I think the Covid situation (both personally being stuck at home and the industry delaying everything) has taken all the excitement about it this year. I can't think of anything that I want to see apart from BotW2, and I'm expecting a fairly standard sequel for that regardless.

    But I hope we see new stuff to be excited about for next year.

    I know this is a little superficial, but I really hope the next Zelda game isn't called Breath Of The Wild 2. We haven't had a numbered Zelda game since 1987, and I really like how Zelda games are stand alone (for the most part).

    Something on Metroid would be nice... Hell, I'd be happy with just a remastered MP trilogy to tide me over that didn't force me to use the motion controller in any of them.

    Got the house to myself this weekend, so will be switching between Ratchet and Clank and watching this with a few beers and junk food along the way. Heaven!

    I'd like an actual surprise, some game that hasn't been leaked and looks great.
    Otherwise, I'd love the Switch ro to be surprisingly powerful, rather than a modest mid-get upgrade and for leading existing titles to be patched, e.g. Paper Mario with HDR/4K, 60fps BOTW. (I know there's no chance of these things happening).

    Highlight (apart from BOTW 2 looking like an improved sequel that takes advantage of Switch Pro) would be Metroid Prime 4 looking beautiful, lonely and atmospheric and not going in a Halol direction whatsoever, I imagine we won't see it at all, just the long rumoured 2D Metroid game at best.
    Seeing some proper next gen footage would be great, I imagine it'll be the usual endless stream of cutscene trailers with no gameplay at all.

    Yeah, Sony tend to focus around Paris Games Week, I think.

    I'd like to see a release date of Babylon's Fall by Platinum, that's been out there for a while now.

    And that Chinese game based on Journey to the West.

    MS could do with an easy win and to get something new and popular out for the S/X. Forza Horizon 5 could actually be already finished and ready to go. If it follows the 2 year cycle, then it would have released last year. Give us that now, rather than waiting till Christmas.
