"Huge" PS3 Announcement For E3?

E3 is still months away, but that doesn't stop us from speculating. It seems a variety of sources are confirming that Sony has something "huge" planned for the yearly gaming event, and it involves the PlayStation 3.

Whatever it is, it should give the PS3 a big boost heading into the holidays (so says PS3Center.net), and the announcement could involve PlayStation Home, Killzone 2, or God of War III. The unveiling is expected to come during Sony's press conference for E3, and we can only begin to guess what it might be. We're still waiting on an official launch date for PlayStation Home, and everyone is hoping to hear more about that public beta, too. However, the beta - if it's going to happen - should be done before E3 in July. As for God of War III, all we know so far is that it probably won't arrive until some time next year...not sure what else there is to say. Things have been quiet on the Killzone 2 front lately, although we have heard rumblings of a public beta hitting later this month or early April. Again, though, that's before E3.

We have no idea what Sony's big announcement will be, but it's always fun to guess. Perhaps they'll let a little something slip before July, and if they do, we'll be all over it. When we hear about "big announcements," we get antsy...we wanna know now!

No offense but, isn't everything at E3 a big announcement? I wonder who's gonna be speaking for Sony this year, Kaz Hirai? I miss Phil even more now...

It may be just Kaz and Jack; they spoke at last years E3 along with Phill, but seeing as Harrison has left, I guess it will be solely the other 2. But you are right, everything announced at E3 is big. I just can't wait to see what Sony's got up its sleeve and I want to watch this incredible year unfold for the PlayStation brand.

If it's classed as big news at E3 it must be huge.
Maybe Sony just cut a deal to make a PS3 version of OCZ's Neural Impulse Actuator or something equally crazy.
And if it's not as insane as mind controlled games, i'll be disappointed. lol

My bet would go on a Slim Line Playstation 3 Alot of rumours have been flying around about it, It will definatly be somthing for the console, To me the biggest announcement would be the ability to Save PS1 games onto the system by burning your PS1, nothing could top that, but the console is very impressive as it is already.

First off, Ultimadream is totally wrong. After four revisions to the PS3, I strongly doubt a slim line PS3 is what they are waiting to announce. Possibly perhaps a memory upgrade as in the 120GB model we've all been waiting for. I'm betting that it might be phone capabilities for the PS3 so not only can u call others who own a PS3 but call them through their PSP's...or just a PSPhone. Either way, sony rarely dissapoints...
