The behemoth that is E3 2017 is but days away, amid an inevitable bombardment of leaks, rumours, hope and dreams. We’ve gone internet dark in an attempt to remain in a vacuum for the upcoming press conferences. We want to retain the magic of surprise announcements and unexpected reveals for as long as possible, and so far, we’ve succeeded. In a year where new IP has surprised us, missing features have baffled us, and console gaming is healthier than ever, the battle lines are drawn. This year will be an E3 to remember.
We’ve broken down our thoughts into ‘Bets’ and ‘Dreams’. The former detailing exactly what we expect to see, and the latter a wish list of potential surprises that would make this E3 an unforgettable few days.
Expect lots of whooping. And awkward moments. It’s E3, baby!

Bets and Dreams in a year of uncertainty…
By MIKE HAZLETON & JAY TEE
E3 is a massive press and public event, celebrating the games industry at large, while the heavy hitters roll out their plans for the future.
All of them!
Lots of them!
Lots to prove. SO much potential. MS need more GAMES. And they need to show their hand.
Horizon has been a critical and commercial smash hit. Expect Sony to go big with it this year. Perhaps with an early tease of DLC / a sequel?
