Ryan’s E3 Predictions

by on May 19, 2016

E3 is almost here!  GameOctane is pumped to see the upcoming games and technology announcements at this year’s conference, which will be held June 14-16th at the Los Angeles Convention Center.  Thousands will be on hand to try new things that the industry has to offer.  Microsoft, Sony, Nintendo, EA, Bethesda, Oculus, ASTRO, Razer, Twitch, and many, many more will be on hand to show exciting developments in the future.

With 25 days left before the conference, I wanted to write my personal predictions for the 3 consoles at E3.  In my mind, these predictions will be 100% right.  But on the slight chance that I am wrong, feel free to let me know in the comments below, on Facebook, or on Twitter.  But this is the internet, so I’m sure no one will tell me I’m wrong……….right?



  • Despite rumors, Xbox will not show off a new console at E3.
  • EA Access will continue its exclusive run with Xbox and announce new games heading to the vault.  The price will go up from $30 a year to $50.
  • At least 20 more Backwards Compatibility games will be announced.
  • Crackdown 3 and Gears of War 4 will be on full display, along with a new Forza, Sunset Overdrive, and Dead Rising.

  • After receiving negative feedback on the Nintendo Treehouse and the unscripted floor segments, Nintendo will do a traditional conference next E3.
  • Nintendo will have a closed door session to show select individuals the NX console and a pre-taped gameplay video of Zelda to show its capabilities.  Larger audiences will see more footage of the NX console at the next Nintendo Direct.
  • There will be a playable demo of Zelda on the Wii U…and it will be glorious.
  • Nintendo will show another game at E3.  They said they will only show Zelda, but it’s a lie!!!!
