E3 2013 Discussion
 
For all intents and purposes, E3 kicks off today with the two big press conferences from Microsoft and Sony, as well as press conferences by EA and Ubisoft. Nintendo wont be doing a press conference this year, instead they'll release a special Nintendo Direct video tomorrow. You should be able to watch the conferences live here, and here's a timetable I found for the major timezones:

Some rumours from an allegedly reliably source on NeoGAF were posted this morning, many of which don't sound too good on the DRM front. The OP intentionally writes like a crazy idiot so that no gaming sites will quote him, so here's a translated version:

Quote:

1. Confirmed Microsoft is actively attempting to get developers to not mention PS4 versions. If they don't say "OUR GAME IS EXCLUSIVE FOR XBONE" expect a PS4 version. #truthfact

2. More DRM messaging at Gamescom. There is no rental strategy.Try to sweep it under the rug and hope people don't remember.

3. Cloud power was designed as DRM. Period. DRM was Microsoft's idea. EA and Ubisoft are supporters, Activision slightly less so.

4. DRM plans are actually worse than what they've stated.

5. Mirror's Edge 2 at MS conference.

6. Prince of Persia (reboot?) at MS conference.

7. Secret Phil Spencer game = World of Tanks

8. Live paywall still there.

9. Dead Rising 3, and exclusive DLC for another Capcom game at MS conference.

10. No online paywall for PS4. Unconfirmed.

11. No DRM info for PS4.

"DRM plans are actually worse than what they've stated".

There's a rumour in that thread that MS plans for a Gold account to be mandatory for all games, even singleplayer ones. It sounds too crazy to be believable, but it kind of makes sense in light of the rumours that have been around for the last few months that MS is planning a cheaper model subsidised by a Gold subscription.

My guess is that there'll be two Xbox Ones, a standard model that costs around $500 and a subsidised one that costs roughly $300. If you buy the subsidised model and let your Gold subscription lapse, you can't play any of your games until you renew it. If you buy the more expensive model then you don't need a Gold subscription for singleplayer games, but you still have to deal with the ridiculous DRM.

^^WOW!!

A gold acount to play even single player, if this is true i doubt MS will mention it here at E3, you would want to slip DRM of that nature under the wire at all costs.

This E3 is going to be fun. lol

Most likely. MS will avoid discussing their DRM policies as much as they can get away with. They cancelled their post press conference media roundtable, and they seem to have cancelled most of their one-on-one interviews with the gaming press, probably so as to avoid the sort of clusterfuck of mixed messages that followed the XBO reveal. Their focus at E3 is going to be games, games, and more games, hoping that gamers will ignore all that policy stuff if we see a few good games we want to play.

And apparently Kiefer Sutherland will be the new voice for Snake in Metal Gear Solid...

New trailer for the new MGS, there is a definite graphics improvement between current and next gen...
And they do indeed neglect to mention it will be multiplatform...

The new MSG looks fantastic -- I can't wait to pick it up for the PS4.

Damn impressive graphics and good gameplay. Less impressed with yet another 360 unit and...whatever the tank spam is.

Well, I have made jokes about modern games mostly playing themselves, but I never meant that quite so literally...

Yeah, not sure how I feel about that really. The game itself doesn't look finished enough, but then again maybe it isn't.
