Can you believe that E3 2017 is less than a month away? I can, due to the hype that is starting to build pretty quick! I thought I’d post a more relaxed thought this week where we can discuss not what we think will be at E3, but what we hope will be there. Welcome to
Spyro Trilogy - While I am very happy for fans of Crash Bandicoot, I can't say that I am particularly excited for the N.sane trilogy. I played the games when I was a kid, but I honestly don't remember them too fondly. Spyro, however, is a completely different story. That is why Sony should do everything they can to give it the same treatment that Crash received. I even think a remastered Spyro trilogy would be a lot more popular than
Dualshock 4 Pro - I still think it is crazy that this doesn't exist yet. The only reason I can imagine Sony not producing one is because it would be “copying” Microsoft. But that is no excuse to not go forward with a great idea. And if they are afraid of being perceived as copy cats, they can always take steps to distance themselves from the Xbox Pro Controller. Maybe it could still be made with premium materials but without the ability to swap parts. This would differentiate it between the Xbox controller, while also bringing the price down. But I honestly don't care how they do it, I just want a premium Dualshock.
Dreams - For those that don't know this, Dreams was actually one of the very first PS4 games ever announced. It was revealed before we even saw the PS4 itself. So the fact that we still know almost nothing about this game is unbelievable. On the upside, however, I do feel that this E3 will finally be the one where we get our first real look at the game. And personally, I am hoping for a 3D LittleBigPlanet. LittleBigPlanet was a side scrolling platformer that put a huge amount of emphasis on creating and sharing. I would love if Dreams took that same concept, but made it a 3D platformer instead. We already know that players will be able to create things in a 3D space, so I don't think Dreams turning out to be a 3D platformer would be too much of a stretch.
E3 is right around the corner, and I’m starting to get more excited than I have for Playstation in a long time. These are just a few of the things I am hoping to see at this year's event, but now I want to hear from you! Remember, these are not predictions. So go crazy with what you hope to see! Have a good weekend everyone!
