SPC Mailbag - June 2nd, 2010

E3 2010 is but two glorious weeks away. Today's installment of the SPC Mailbag is entirely made up of questions revolving around E3. There will be predictions, desired games, and favorite moments to be touched upon. Let's get right to it!

What are your predictions for this year's E3?

Right to Double Jeopardy, eh? Alright. Well, I'm no Nostradamus, and I won't pretend to know what I'm talking about. Nor will I see in the future if my predictions come true, but here goes:

Big focus on Wii Party and new Zelda
Golden Sun DS secretly moved to 3DS
New Pokemon games will have some function with 3DS
Nintendo 3DS will be the final name and will come out this winter in at least one territory.
Metroid: Other M gets a lot of attention, too.
No mainline Mario game for 3DS launch lineup

Move will focus more on casual games, and what core games there will be will underwhelm
Move will launch for $60 US in September.
LittleBigPlanet 2 will be a media darling as will Killzone 3.
InFAMOUS 2 will be unveiled formally.
PSP will gain new announcements towards its already robust catalog.
No new PSP to be announced/shown until TGS.

Natal will impress.
Natal will cost $99 US.
Natal will release in November.
Rare will show off a new IP exclusively for Natal.
More gun games for Microsoft's userbase. SuperPhillip will roll eyes and groan.

So there you have it. Some "duh" responses, but others much more ballsy. It's sure to be an exciting E3 regardless of whether my predictions come true or not.

What games would you like to see announced for E3 2010?

I'll just do a laundry list for you guys to make it simpler on me.

Mega Man Powered Up 2
Zelda Wii
Perfect Dark 2
A new IP from Nintendo EAD
Hot Shots Golf for Move
We Love Golf 2
Tatsunoko VS. Capcom 2
Sly Cooper HD
Jak HD

What are your favorite E3 moments of all time?

There's so many to recall and forget about. Let's go with these:

1. The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess reveal.

2. Sony's 2006 E3 performance.
3. Sony's much better LittleBigPlanet demonstration.
4. Microsoft's Final Fantasy XIII announcement.
5. Wii Music unveiling.
