The Electronic Triple 'Zero Nine Thread


J-Stop

Recommended Posts

In about two weeks E3 will once again be here and we'll have plenty to talk about. Like the past few years here on AE, let's use this thread to keep most news in one place so the board isn't cluttered.

While E3 is 14 days away, speculation has already started. Most notably from a twitter account named GameFork who claims to have a lot of inside knowledge on what's going down on Microsoft's presser. To sum up his posts,

- A lot more of Alan Wake is going to be shown

- New Xbox Live camera called Fluid is coming

- Splinter Cell: Convition will be in their presentation

- Metal Gear Solid (4?) + Oxide (all one title) is going to be at the very end of the show. It's a exclusive 360 MGS game. (he doesn't say if it's a port of 4 or not)

- Second DLC content for GTA4 will be shown and be titled Blood on a Four Leaf Clover.

A lot of it sounds crazy, like Metal Gear Sold + Oxide. But Ubi recently put up a teaser site for Conviction, so it has to be at the show, and Rockstar intends to drop some details on the new DLC soon. If it's called Blood and a Four Leaf Clover then the account might have some legitimacy to it. Anyone remember Surfergirl? She posted about Sonic and the Black Knight almost a whole year before Sega actually showed it off to the public.

Also Kojima productions has put a teaser site for their new game that will be revealed soon. I forget where you can see them, but there's some drawn clouds around the site that show lighting, a bright sun, and a exclamation mark. Possible hints at Raiden, Sunny, and MGS? :whistling:

Realtime Worlds confirmed that they'll be showing off APB at E3. GameFork posted about this weeks ago. Now as long as Rockstar shows off the second DLC for GTA IV and it ends up being called Blood on a Four Leaf Clover and stars Patrick, he's probably legit.

NeoGAF found in the source code for Kojima Pro's "NEXT" game that the website will have 5 seperate countdown timers, so it'll be a while before that game is officially announced. The last timer ends on the same day as Microsoft's press conference. :awesome:

Also there are these slim PS3 pictures circulating around the net recently. I didn't post them earlier because it seems way too ridiculous to be true, but recently Taiwanese lawyers have sent emails out to a few sites telling them to remove the images. So perhaps there's something to them. Though the people contacting the sites are not affiliated with Sony.

i was super skeptical of the new slim ps3 pics. mainly cause alot of that space is the power brink and cooling components*ie HUEG hitsink*. the powerbrick is easy just look at the 360 and slim ps2 however the cooling components not so much.

but after some research the new 3rd generation heatsink is very small. but it better be efficient. i'll just have to wait and see

That Trico video and the screenshots that were leaked earlier look... blugh. Bad texture work work, bland character models, and the staple of this gen - BLOOOOOOOOOM turned up to eleven.

Hopefully its really early in development or one of the best fakes ever.

If anyone's still following Kojima's countdown site, the second timer went down and now "E" "e" and "3" flashes in the background from time to time. It would be awesome if that meant Zone of the Enders 3. But it's probably just for a new Metal Gear game like everyone already expected since last week's Famitsu PS3/PSP edition outright says they'll have a seven page article on the next MG game next issue. This doesn't appear in their 360 mag.

Maybe Gamefork was just lucky on the Conviction and APB, or maybe Konami is taking a note from Square and only releasing (the still rumored) Metal Gear Solid 4 + Oxide in the US for 360. Fork is also saying that "Oxide" is the name of the day one DLC for MGS4. Still, he said it would be exclusive to 360. Famitsu has a lot more cred then a unknown twitter account though.

Fork's cred is still qustionable though because he posted that Kojima is supposed to have two announcements at E3 for 360. Oxide and another game that will be more focused on western gamers. He was right on that because PSW already let the cat out of the bag.

Also, Capcom is going to announce another big title at E3. They hinted at it on the Unity twitter account. They've given three hints. It's already a well established series, it's an action game, and it is not Devil May Cry. That can only mean one game! MEGA MAN LEGENDS 3 BABY! AH YEAH! It's probably Onimusha 5.

Metal Gear?! A Famitsu leak? It can't be!

Edit: Also :hardgay:. This is either a clever joke Rockstar is pulling before E3 or Gamefork just lost most of his credibility. The second GTA4 DLC will focus on Luis Lopez, the guy who appears a few times in various places in IV like the Four Leaf Clover mission and the diamond exchange.

I find it fabulous that you can't say "gay" on Live even if it's just describing your sexual orientation, but you can make a game title with it. Oh and by the time BoGT is released Rockstar is putting out a standalone retail expansion disc that will have both Lost and Damned and Balled of Gay Tony on it for $40.

there's speculation that the Raiden looking guy is actually Frank Jaeger/Gray Fox.

NOOO!!!!!

Jaeger got fucking killed by Rex.. thats bullshit.. if they do that it will fuck up his death even more so please leave him dead... its like Naomi died for nothing

I'm thinking that it could be set after MGS1.

Like a story that's based around Big Boss saving parts of Frank's body from the REX fight and having Dr. Madnar rebuild him as a type of cyborg Raiden was in 4

.

In Twin Snakes Grey Fox gets his left eye crushed in at the end.

can anyone read what it says on his hat? i also fully agree with sien

Militares sans Frontieres / Military without boarders
