My guess is:

Sony's new ‘mini ps3′ with a big price cut!!!

OR

Modern Warfare 2 going exclusive to Xbox 360!!!

If they hobbled the film play back on the BR (like they did with teh PS2), and charged a premium to cover licensing with the remote control), and knocked 100 quid off the price of a PS3, I'd have one.

The CoD rumour seems to have legs.

My guess is MGS4 for 360. But I've just plucked that randomly from my ass.

That would be great with my birthday coming and all that...

I would say MGS5 exclusive for the PS3 (again) or the MW2 for the PC/Xbox360 combo...

If it was anything as big as MGS5 then more sites would be going on about it, unless Konami, for some reason, picked an AWTFAY site to reveal it.

Once again I'm reminded that I really need to get back into Fallout 3 at some point.

Not the DLC though.

Anyway, I'd rather see Shivering Isle on the PSN than any Fallout DLC.

Mmm, that really isn't interesting.


Thread title needs to be changed to "What's the announcement, which we wouldn't have ever discussed on AATG if it had just been announced randomly instead of hyped, at 3pm?"

Microsoft really need to do something about their 'exclusive' content. From last year:

"I just wanted to say how much we love XBLM ... we'll be doing substantial exclusive 360 and Games For Windows downloadable content," said executive producer Todd Howard at the Microsoft E3 keynote today.



Ok, the games coming to another platform later with a slightly different name and added content to get round exclusivity is quite an old trick (which was rather common last gen with things like Capcom GC releases) but this DLC isn't even trying to pretend it is even slightly different. Has 'exclusive' now come to mean 'timed exclusive' in the gaming industry, in the same way a GigaByte in the storage industry is defined differently to every other sector of IT (to fudge numbers)?

Any console exclusive (bar Team Ico output) = big feckin' yawn. Specially if it's DLC. Fuck DLC in its big flabby white arse.

(unless it's Rockstar DLC)
