E3 Predictions/Rumors/Facts - 04/23/02 11:27 AM

May 22-24 for the show and conferences will occur a day or two before that, visit http://www.e3expo.com/ for more info.

*now for some insider info-*


Shadowrun – announced but not shown (platform unknown)
Unseen – will be shown (Xbox)

Halo – next incarnation will be shown behind closed doors and it is said to NOT be Halo 2 but rather something different; my guess is an online version perhaps along the 1.5 vein of reasoning. With any luck some screens/movies will get "leaked" (Xbox)

Ninja Gaiden – will be exclusive to one platform (platform unknown but Team Ninja loves the Xbox so…)

Castlevania – news only (platform unknown)

GTA3 on Xbox – dead (PS2 only)

Squaresoft on Xbox – nope (PS2/GC/GBA)


Probably my most anticipated announcement will be about Xbox online. I’ve learned that it will be $15 a month and well worth it. Everything from heavy tie-ins to voice over BB, add-ons, extras, media, merchandise, and just about anything you can think of game-wise. Also you’ll notice on MS’s gaming site that a lot of Xbox titles have a category listing of "Enhancements" followed by "Currently, no enhancements available for (game title)" What exactly that means is anyone’s guess...but I’m sure it means is there anything that I mentioned above available for this game.
