Man, Is It Good To Be Back…E3 '09 Predictions!!

Hello people!

How I’ve missed you all these long days without GamerNode. I think I speak for everyone here at the website when I say that I missed writing about that which I love: gaming. Now that we’re back, I’m gonna get the ball rolling ASAP.

Which reminds me…

Next week is E3 2009!!!!!!! If you’re a gamer, you’re giddy. Next Tuesday, I’ll be doing a up-to-the-minute live blog of the Nintendo and Sony press conferences, with all the news, announcements, and (my) reactions to what the the two titans have to say (For the Microsoft fans, I work during their presentation, or else I’d be blogging that one too). Feel free to follow along with me if you like. In preparation for next week’s extravanganza, I, like everyone else, have my own predictions (and hopes). If what I write here comes true, I’ll be a very happy gamer. Let’s see…

 E3 2009 PREDICTIONS (Odds in parentheses)

1. Rare will announce its next big project (2:1)
2. Sony will announce a new PSP of some kind (3:1)
3. Nintendo will announce a new Wii Zelda game (8:1)
4. Microsoft will shed some light on this new camera rumor I’ve heard so much about. (4:1)
