    Hadrian will break into the floor running naked and screaming "Who your gonna call?"!

    Seriously, I think not many new things, perhaps some new games for the 360 will be shown, like the new Perfect Dark game.
    If you read EGM, the QMan always gives some rumors about the industry, while I do have the latest issue, I don't remember anything at the moment, perhaps I can edit this post later.

    Well, I'd say it's about time we at least hear about the DS' successor, even if it won't be released in two years. Game Boy Pocket was released in 1996, Color was released in 1998 and Advance was announced just two years later, in 2000 and finally released in 2001. DS was announced in 2003. Those events were just two years apart from each other. Now, DS is four years old and there's no sign of the next handheld console. And frankly, we need one. I still love mine, but the screens could really be improved resolution- and color-wise, CPU is pretty weak too. Come on, Nintendo.

    Nintendo going to blow some minds is what I predict. The Wii right now has nothing interesting to look forward to. Everything we know and care about is released now. Nintendo won't let that stand. Come E3 they are going to announce so much good shit. [​IMG]

    You do realise the Game Boy was actually around in 1989, right? A whole 9 years before the release of the GBC? Quite frankly, the only reason why the GBC was killed off so quickly was because it was just that, a Gameboy, but in Colour. Essentially a souped up Gameboy with a better screen. I'd say the DS has got another 2 years left in it, at least, and that's only before a new DS comes along, not before the original DS dies out.

    Although, I'd still really love to see what Nintendo has planned with the next DS, regardless of my comments [​IMG]

    I'm all for Animal Crossing Wii and more details about Pokemon Platinum.

    A beta trailer for the next Zelda project?

    the DS is making nintendo so much money right now thats the last thing they would do to introduce a new handheld, it would be financial suicide for them, a re design, yes maybe, but not a new handheld.

    What do you mean too many liscences? The rights to James Bond is one liscence. As for a Goldeneye Remake, as it goes, Nintendo doesn't have a legal leg to stand on. The only reason why Activision won't do it is out of respect for Nintendo. Replace Activision with Microsoft, and it's all over.

    Legend of Zelda Wii hasn't been announced yet either, maybe that's been cancelled? It could be a surprise by Sony, you never know.

    I think Nintendo will shows us Animal Crossing Wii and Kirby Wii.I also think they'll show us what there working on for the Wii storage solution.I don't think the 360 will get a Blue ray player though.Also,I think they'll announce a new color for the Wii as well.

    I agree with a lot of the comments on here. Nintendo have been putting off making an announcement for their Storage Space solution, so hopefully it will come at E3.

    Other predictions and agreements:
    - Possibly new Legend Of Zelda
    - Wii Music
    - Guitar Hero IV Demo
    - More announcements on next Valve instalments (Portal 2, HL2:E3, Left 4 Dead), though probably no playable demos except L4D.
    - Animal Crossing Wii
    - Mad World Demo
    - The Conduit Demo (for those who haven't seen the trailer on IGN, watch it, it's absolutely amazing).
    - Kid Icarus Wii (I REALLY think this is going to happen).
    - Details on the new Kirby games.
    - Probably a new Mario title of some form.
    - Mercs 2 playable demo.

    Probably some stuff I've forgotten there.

    don't you remember that goldeneye was coming out on xbox live but was canned, and there was a lot of issues bringing goldeneye to the VC too due to all the license, it just won't happen.

    Indeed.. we have no big Nintendo games to wait for, neither for Wii or DS.. they ought to have something really BIG to show us..
    I'm betting on Kid Icarus Wii, a new Zelda on Wii and a Mario Tennis for both Wii and DS.. and of course Kirby and Animal Crossing..
    and they'll show us gameplay of Wii Music, being that, the real star of the show!

    Good chances of a new DS design and maybe they'll talk about their next handheld (knowing Nintendo, if they start talking about it now, they shouldn't release it until 2010).
    We'll also probably see a lot of WiiWare announcements and their solution to the space problem!
