Predictions for Upcoming E3

Boot Camp feature for Thursday, May 28, 2009

        Predictions for the video game industry's E3 gathering.    I'm Fred Fishkin with technology Boot Camp, a report on gadgets and gear.       These haven't been the best of times for the video game industry....or for just about any industry.    But the big video game makers and makers of the video game machines are hoping to generate excitement around E3...about to get underway in Los Angeles.    At IGN.com...which is all about games...publisher Peer Schneider says...

"I think the biggest headline is likely going to be between Microsoft announcing a new motion camera for the Xbox 360 platform and then Sony rolling out a new Playstation Portable. "

Nintendo has already rolled out the new DSi handheld and announced the MotionPlus add-on for the Wii.   About the new Playstation Portable, Schneider says it appears to be Sony's response to the success of the iPhone as a gaming device...along with the App Store.   More on E3 in upcoming reports.   You can find us with archives and more at BootCamp.com.  I'm Fred Fishkin.
