Floor Plans For E3 Revealed |

The floor plans for E3 2006 have been unveiled & unsurprisingly the big three, Sony, Nintendo & Microsoft, have the biggest booths. E3 Floor Plan 2006

The largest booths at the event seem to be Nintendo, Sony, and Microsoft – the major hardware manufacturers. Microsoft will likely have a huge section dedicated to the Xbox 360 and a small portion for Windows games. Xbox will likely be a no-show. Sony will probably be giving equal treatment to the PS3, PS2, and PSP. Although it may try to take attention away from the PS3 if it’s not ready yet. Nintendo has four systems to juggle with the Revolution, DS, GBA, and GCN. Don’t expect much from the GCN at all except for Zelda and maybe the rumoured Kirby game. The GBA should also be relatively dead unless they announce a North American release for Mother 3. They will be focusing on the DS and Revolution for sure.

There have been more rumours doing the rounds about the PS3 not even being shown at all at E3 but I find this hard to believe. Considering MGS4 is set to be demoed by Hideo Kojima himself & the number of other PS3 games confirmed at the show, the PS3 will be at E3 but it just won’t be playable by the masses. I don’t see that as being a big deal. – E3 Floor Plans Revealed

    We might not see much of the ps3 at e3 this year, but I expect that Sony’s big pre-e3 show on May 8th. to show a whole lot of ps3 stuff and a whole lot of new info seeing as the e3 timeframe will be the last big chance that Sony has to show off the monster system before its november launch unless Sony schedules a ps3 conference right before the ps3 launches.

    The next major date after E3 is the Tokyo Game Show that takes place in September. If there is no playable PS3 at E3 then it will be playable at the TGS unless Sony organise a special preview before then.

    As long as we see ‘real’ in-game footage I will be happy.

  • i agree…i mean, if they don’t show the ps3 at e3 and expect to launch in november, it would mean 2 things – a launch delay or a special ps3 conference.

    in either case, sony’s really cutting it close this time…

  • JustME

    I have no doubts that the PS3 will be at E3.

    “the PS3 will be at E3 but it just won’t be playable by the masses”

    Says who? IGN disagrees with you. From IGN regarding Insomniac’s Resistance:

    “Resistance (Fall of Man) was fully playable on the GDC stage and was demoed by…”
    “Expect another update around E3, where Insomniac has confirmed that Resistance will be fully playable for show-goers.”

  • Gary

    Yeah but will it be playable on a PS3 or a modified PC with a joypad plugged in? I’m just saying that IF the PS3 isn’t playable at E3 then it isn’t a big deal. There’s no need for concern if it isn’t playable but I bet there will be mass hysteria from the media dooming the PS3 if it isn’t.

  • observer

    Oh, of course. I don’t think using PC-based devkits is a bad sign at all. The important thing is that the games are playable.

    At E3 2005, the 360 playable demos were all running on Apple Macintosh G5 systems so this really wouldn’t be any different.
