It’s that time of year again folks with E3 upon us now in a matter of weeks. Speculation is rife with what to expect from the show, so we at GOONL!NE thought we’d throw down our predictions for what we think (and would like) to appear at this years show. Some of it may be wishful thinking but hey, we can dream, right?

Well after Game Informer breaking it’s cover, Sony have finally officially unveiled Killzone 3.
Described as a battle like David vs Goliath, Killzone 3 picks off where the last game left off, with Rico and Sev having just seen the end of Scolar Visari.

Check out some hi res screens for the game after the jump.

Bethseda developer Ashley Cheng has written on his blog that he believes Project Natal “seems wasted on games.”
Cheng went on to say that “Microsoft should open the Natal API up like Apple does with the iPhone/iPad” and by letting anyone make an app for Natal he can see “a killer app that has nothing to do with gaming” coming from it.
Microsoft Saudi marketing manager Syed Bilal Tariq earlier announced that Natal would see an October release.
Amazon UK have announced that Red Dead Redemption is their most pre-ordered title this year, with the game currently holding three of the top five positions in the Amazon.co.uk video games bestsellers.
“This is undoubtedly the most hotly anticipated video game of the year so far,” said Chris Poad, Director of Video Games at Amazon.co.uk Ltd. “Demand has risen significantly over the last week as excitement and buzz around the game has built, making it one of the most successful titles we have seen on Amazon.co.uk this year before it has even been released.”
RDR launches May 21st in the UK on PS3 and Xbox 360. You can catch the launch trailer for the game here.
We expected the slightly redesigned PS3 slim to be mentioned at E3 but it seems some units with the new 40nm RSX chip have already made their way into stores.
