    To be clear, this is the place to talk about all things (revealed or otherwise) E3 related.

    Having said that, let's get to the predictions.

    Nintendo:

    Wii U price & date.

    Project Cars gets a new name and teaser trailer.

    Retro Studio's Wii U project. (Metroid 3DS? F-Zero U?)

    Launch line up for Wii U gets revealed.

    Nintendo will shed some light on the Wii U's online infrastructure. (And the service will be called Nintendo Universe)

    A crapton of 3rd party software will get shown/teased.

    Oddball showing for Nintendo:

    The 3DS will get a YouTube app.

    Microsoft:

    Halo 4 gamplay, and features will be revealed.

    More kinect games will get shoved down our throats. (And we'll all hate it of course)

    Next gen xbox will get teased.

    Gears of war prequel will get teased.

    Oodball showing for Microsoft:

    Project gotham returns.....as a kinect game.

    Sony:

    The PS move will be discontinued.

    More vita games will be revealed.

    To be honest, that's all I have for sony, unless I missed something.

    Super excited. Spike TV has a ton of coverage tomorrow, and I wish they covered the Sony conference.

    Things I forgot to add to the list:

    Fortnite gameplay will be shown.

    The last of us will get another trailer, and possibly gameplay footage.

    I'm hoping for any news about either A) ME3 Extended Cut, or B) Dragon Age 3/New DLC for 2.

    Everything else can go hang, and honestly, a YouTube app for your DS.......if you own one of these things surely you have a fucking Smartphone.

    If I see updates on Fall of Cybertron and Borderlands 2 I'll be happy. Can't think of anything else coming out this year I'm interested in.

    Gearbox showing an almost finished Mechromancer would be great.

    It was hilarious last year when they showed the reel of upcoming multi-plat games coming to Wii U and people said they looked worse than 360 footage...then it turn out it was actually 360 footage.

    That was easily the best part about E3 last year. I kinda hope that Nintendo does that at least once more, just for the possibility of publicly shaming game "journalists." I saw a video of the guys from Giant Bomb saying that the footage looked like it was somewhere between Xbox 1 and Xbox 360.

    And what makes that whole thing even funnier, is that in the reel, there was footage of Metro: Last Light using what turned out to be PC footage. Yeah, people were claiming that the best looking game on PC looked worse than 360.

    Is the 3DS Youtube app official, or just speculation?

    I wouldn't hold my breath for that. Team Sora just finished Kid Icarus a few months ago and I doubt they even have a basic idea of where they are going with the serires, especially considering that they are making two different versions of the game.

    They have a good start for a quick trailer with no gameplay. Kid icarus was march and programming and development probably ended in January the rest of the time is rights, rating, manufacturing, etc. so they have enough time to animated a quick little animation of Mario vs link vs dk vs pikachu.

    Fall of Cybertron is really the only thing at E3 this year that I give a FoC about, so I'm just gonna be looking for info after everything has finished.
