I'd love to see a slim X1X as it's such a well designed console I'd be amazed if they can make it much smaller.
PS4 Pro has room for slimming down though and if they also go with a fancy pants cooling solution I can see them making it quite a bit smaller.

As for games I really just want to see the multiplayer aspect of Last of Us 2 and the release date for Metro.

I think these are all Xbox Two games (if rumored development has only just begun) and will go down VERY well at E3 2020 :)

Maybe, I think Perfect Dark will make it to 2019. I hope my X1X will be able to play launch Xbox 2 games though, Fable 4's production needed a new studio to be spun up by playground, but the Coalition could have been potentially on PD for 2 years.

This is the best season in gaming! I'm already looking forward to watching the conferences with a beer and some snacks. :D

Dreams VR game making highlighted.
First party FPS/TPS game. Maybe Resistance maybe something new.

Longshot: PlayStation 4 portable.


Nintendo
New built for Switch Pokemon.
Pilotwings (I hope).

Minecraft VR - exclusive
Xbox Game Pass streaming - no need to download
Skyrim & Fallout 4 VR - theme is best console experience
Halo: MCC announcement. - Game is finished, no bugs, Halo Reach added.
Halo 5 engine multiplayer game available on Game Pass. Maybe Battle Royale.
Halo 6 announcement - will feature a full single player campaign and an online persistent experience like Destiny
XBO X soft price drop or model with increased HDD. Maybe 2 TB.
Game with Rare characters - Banjo & Conker's Big Race

Longshot: Reveal 3 new triple-A first party games.



Third party
EA, I'm going to go out on a limb with this one but FIFA 2019?
Ubisoft - no full Assassin's Creed for 2018
Ubisoft - Skull & Bones - no lessons learnt from Sea of Thieves
Sega - new multiplatform game - Streets of Rage Adventure like
Bethesda - Starfield

Longshot: Bethesda: The Elder Scrolls VI

I really hope next-gen games aren't constrained by current-gen systems.

Imagine games like Witcher 3, God of War, Gears 4, Horizon ZD and Battlefront having to be developed to be compatible with PS3 and 360 :dread:

I was watching a bit of a Kinda Funny Games podcast. Greg Millar said that if Microsoft do or don't reveal the Halo 6 on the E3 stage it will be indicative of their launch plans for the next Xbox. if MS don't show the Halo 6 then they're likely saving it for the next Xbox launch so they have a killer app and perhaps will launch the console sooner. But if they do reveal it then they're in this generation for a while longer.

Odd, Microsoft released Halo 4 exactly a year before the new console and it looks like Halo 6 will be no different.

As for the rumoured Halo Genesis, Fable 4 and Perfect Dark 3, if they're in early development which has been suggestedon't, then they're good candidates for early Xbox Two titles in 2020/2021.

Halo 6 has battle royale style game, people are incredibly sceptical until they play it and declare it to be the greatest thing ever.
New Forza is massive online open world containing tracks that you can drive to and race with people. Simply titled 'Forza' which makes people everywhere facepalm.
Alan Wake and the Mysterious Tankard of Truth.
Psi-Ops reboot which looks a million times better than Crackdown 3.
Black Ops 4 has a single player mode, but only available in the Ultrastige Edition with a working replica tank.
Muse: Rock Band
Titanfall 3, which despite looking like the greatest game ever made fails to get a single whoop.
Resident Evil Online Team Battle, because everyone would like to see that, right?
Sega releases a Lightgun for all consoles and bundles it with a new Virtual Cop / House Of The Dead game and everyone loses their gooseberry fool.
A big 3 appears on screen, followed by the Valve logo. And then it's revealed to be a new Team Fortress game, accompanied by a screen-filling middle finger.
Lego Frozen

What I want:

Resident Evil 2 Remake

A new Splinter Cell

A new Rayman

Sonic 3 & knuckles to come to psn.
I don’t buy that Micheal Jackson story. If it where true then why is the game upon Steam & Xbox arcade?.

A Resistance collection (all 3 games & comes with R2 sublime multiplayer :wub:)

Megaton: Sony have found a way to change your psn ID

What I’ll get: 4K!, Some multiplayer only bollocks & a load of disappointment.

New switch with enlarged screen size (in the same form factor, so a smaller bezel) and revised kick stand.
