E3 2012 Predictions

Wii U

  • Iwata announces that smart phones and tablets can be used interchangeably as controllers for the Wii U. Virtual console games can be transferred between console and mobile devices using a Nintendo cloud service coined Star Road.
  • Halfway through a live demonstration of the Playstation Move, Gabe Newell strolls nonchalantly onto the stage of Sony’s press conference wearing an HEV suit. He was not invited. He announces Half-Life 3 then leads everyone out of the auditorium like the pied piper. Interest in motion control dies forever.
  • Blizzard reveals that Project Titan is actually a Dyson sphere funded by subscription fees from World of Warcraft. Mike Morhaime proclaims a new era of prosperity for mankind built on limitless clean energy.
  • During the EA press conference, John Riccitiello steps up to the microphone and apologizes profusely for their Origin service for 45 minutes straight. He eventually begins sobbing quietly into his hands and has to be ushered off the stage.
