Microsoft:

- Last year and the year before, Microsoft had a very strong Kinect presence, may you like it or not. E3 2012 will most likely bring more of this.
- Halo 4 seems far along in development, so a demo on stage shouldn't be a surprise to anyone.
- Neither should be a stage demo of the next Call of Duty; Black Ops 2 (which should be revealed May 1st.)
- Fable: The Journey could also make a comeback, a game we haven't really heard about since last year.
- New multimedia applications are expected to be revealed as well.
- We can also expect some surprises, assuming nothing is leaked right before the conference this year.

Nintendo:

- As everybody probably knows, Nintendo will drop the facts about the Wii U this year as a "re-reveal". Everything should be convered from the OS to the launch line-up and the online network. Price and release date will be kept to a later date, as Nintendo usually does anyway.
- Pikmin 3 has been confirmed to be present and will likely be the flagship title of the Wii U's release, as well as its graphical showcase. (The reason Pikmin 3 was moved from the Wii to the Wii U especially being the HD and improved graphics.)
- We've known since November 2011 that a 3DS Zelda is in the works, a trailer and maybe even a playable version could be possible.
- New Super Mario Bros. 2 will also most likely be present in trailer and demo form.
- More details on Nintendo's recent turn to digital distribution, announced at the last investor meeting.

Sony:

- Sony is having a bit of trouble with the PS Vita, so we can expect some major announcements regarding it.
- The Playstation 3 First-Party offering is still alive and kicking, with games like God of War: Ascension and Playstation All-Star Battle Royale pretty much guaranteed to be shown and playable.
- The Last of US trailer and stage demo. Somehow Nolan North is there.
- Some third-party exclusives are likely as well.

Valve:

- Won't be showing anything new. (Will be showing CS:GO and Dota 2).

Bethesda:

- Will probably show a lot more of Elder Scrolls Online.

Rumor has it Retro Studios is making a Metroid/StarFox crossover for Wii U.

I hope this becomes a reality. Will this be the big reveal for Nintendo? Probably not cause it seems like this idea is still in the conceptual stage.

This rumours comes from a guy that said Rocksteady was making a Arkham City/Arkham Asylum-like game with the TMNT. And turned out to be utterly wrong.

And not even Nintendo would be crazy enough to combine those 2 franchises. It will kill both franchises. (And they already aren't doing so well.)

Here's better news.

[URL="http://www.gamespot.com/aliens-colonial-marines-2012/videos/aliens-colonial-marines-interview-with-randy-pitchford-6377485/?tag=Topslot;AliensColonialMarines;AliensColonialMarines;WatchItNow"]Video here.[/URL]

Gearbox President Randy Pitchford speaks at length about the conception of Aliens: Colonial Marines, working with Ridley Scott, Asymmetrical competitive multiplayer and why the Wii-U version of the game is going to be the best-looking.

- Wii U's Controller is the Best Shooter Controller from Nintendo yet.
- The Wii U IS a next-gen system.
- It's a very powerful system. More so than 360/PS3.
- They wouldn't be making this game for the system if it didn't offer a competitive online infrastructure.
- The Wii U version is the best looking console version.

This rumours comes from a guy that also said Sony was making a PlayStation crossover fighter. And that turned out to be PlayStation All Stars Battle Royale.

So obviously he hears legit rumours, but some of his sources can also feed him bs. And this one is one of them, it sounds even more crazy that a TMNT game in the style of Arkham City.

Oh dear god I hope so. I love my 3DS, but I'm always scared that I'm going to break that circle pad. Not so much with an analogue stick. XÐ

As for the StarFox/Metroid crossover game...

Well, since both franchises aren't doing so well to begin with the "crossover" would either destroy the franchises or somehow make them more popular. (I don't know how, I guess people like cross over games.)

But, I, too, believe it is total BS.

I just have no idea how they'd combine the two.

samus: Oh, here's a system (galaxy?) comprised of woodland critters.

Woodland Critters: AHHHH! WHAT IS IT?!? Andross! You've gone too far!

Just throwing it out there because I think it's funny, they already dropped the ball on how all of the gear Samus uses breaks.

"During an intergalactic warp, Fox and his crew crash into Samus Aran's ship."

In all seriousness though, I do agree. Just make two different games. AND LET ME PLAY AS PEPPY DAMMIT! I must be able to yell "Use bombs wisely!" for no real reason other then being Peppy.

However, I do like what it said about the Metroid part being like Prime. I liked the Prime games, a lot.

Hello, Cookie_Aroma from GameFAQS here. I'm surprised nobody else has debunked this Twitter post yet. The person who made up this tweet made one little mistake (actually two as Yani pointed out). Take a look at the screen capture that the person who saw the tweet took:

http://i.imgur.com/oGhal.png

Let's compare that to Sakurai's Twitter page now:

http://i.imgur.com/5sTHX.jpg

Do you see it yet? See the Tweets count in the upper-right-hand corner? It reads "8807 Tweets" for both images. This is the problem. The tweet with the 2 of 3 message should say 8808 tweets if it was actually legitimate. That coupled with the fact that the only witnesses to this tweet were 2 people from the same board (And as Yani pointed out, the tweet says expand instead of view conversation), I'm positive this is a fake.

This kind of thing is actually very easy to photoshop (or gimp in my case). See?

lmao, Nintendo doesn't get humor. Unless their humor was to be incredibly cheesy, in that case they won.

Can't say I was impressed with the Nintendo Direct, though I expect the best was saved for E3 and they used Nintendo Direct to get this stuff out of the way.

Miiverse was sort of interesting but I am still looking for what Nintendo Consoles have been lacking. A strong network. They may have more 3rd Party Support but they need a good Network for Online play. Wi-Fi won't cut it. They showed Nintendo Network but all they showed of it was Youtube and an Internet Browser. Unless of course, I missed something.

Microsoft's Conference was not very impressive at all.

Pretty much Halo 4, Gears, and BlOps2 were all they had. The rest was just "Expanding and Connecting Entertainment and Devices".

Ubisoft had Watch Dogs, that was pretty nice. But the hostesses banter with Toby Turner was lengthy and unecessary. They did show Assassin's Creed III, which will be on the Wu.

Here are some pictures and gifs people have thrown together for Nintendo.

Spoiler:
