Peter Molyneux Providing Expert Analysis During E3 On SpikeTV

Kotaku has announced that their team of writers will be joining Geoff Keighley and acclaimed developer Peter Molyneux for unrivalled coverage of E3 on SpikeTV next month. Former Microsoft and Lionhead developer Molyneux will be joining Spike TV’s All Access Live marathon coverage of the first two days of E3, will begin which on Monday, June 4 at 11:30 AM. Here’s what Peter Molyneux has told Kotaku he’s most excited about:

  • Sony and Msft are holding their breath on next gen interesting to see how they pad out another year. Price cuts, form factors?
  • Nintendo’s slightly lack lustre Wii U is going to have to blow us away with better specs and great 1st party line up.
  • The real challenge is how the players are going to adapt to the mounting pressure of Facebook, Apple, Social, Cloud, Multi-Gaming.
  • Is the biggest news that E3 itself runs the risk of being outdated, or perhaps it already is?
  • I guess I am excited about GTA V, but only in a mildly curious way.
  • I am excited, as always, to hear from Valve.
  • I would expect some announcement from Bungie
  • God only knows what COD will have to destroy in the Press briefing demo, after last year’s destruction of NY.

    1. I guess…
      Nice for people who like this sort of thing, but I’ll be perfectly fine watching it without someone telling me all the news for a second time.
      (Apart from all the Ninty news ofcourse) I’m really interested in Capcoms games, like Resident Evil 6, Dragon’s Dogma and Bg&e.
      Also Bethesda’s ‘Dishonored’ has my interest.

      1. Yea but I mean there’s already so many other companies doing this. So this isn’t anything special to me

        1. True, but this is probably almost the only news we’ll get here up until the actual E3, so I’m not very surprised with this news either :p

  1. ‘The real challenge is how the players are going to adapt to the mounting pressure of Facebook, Apple, Social, Cloud, Multi-Gaming.’

    They won’t.This is the problem of the Developer. Although then again the developer won’t have to worry either – social gaming is already set parallel to Console and Handhelds. They won’t be able to compete.

  2. “ITS AMAZING FANTASTIC NEVER BEFORE SEEIING JUST GROUNDBREAKING REVOLUTIONARY EXTRAORDINARY… app for youtube you got here.” -Peter Molyneux, talking abou some app crap for the 360 at this E3…

  3. This is off topic… But I am so excited to hear so much news about Nintendo Wii U. I am going to buy it on the very first day it is available. I am serious. I have enough money now to at make a $600 purchase [though I doubt Nintendo would price it at that level]. But reading the articles gives me hope that I’ll be playing a system that will NEVER get old. I swear that when this system comes out… everybody here… PLEASE GIVE ME YOUR FCs, or whatever Nintendo uses, because I want to video chat with all of you guys…

    I’m looking forward to yapping on the controller like it’s my cell phone!

    Long LIVE Nintendo…

  4. On some points I question his “expert analysis”, but I agree with things like announcements from Bungie and Valve. Although those are pretty obvious.

    1. Indeed. I sense a disturbance in the force. As if voices suddenly cried out in bias against the Wii U and will be suddenly silenced at E3 =D

    2. No, your bias towards Nintendo is making you think he’s bias against WiiU.
      The “lackluster” comment is not far from reality, a lot of gamers and the media weren’t that impress with WiiU from e3 2011, hence the lackluster comment. But he also said this time around people will be wowed.

      1. Those people have no right to be unimpressed.

        Nintendo has not yet announced or released any specific details about the console, nor have they shown much gameplay footage (none at all for any actual Nintendo titles), and they have kept most developers quiet about their games that are in the works.

        Simply put, there is currently not enough information to make a justifiable opinion on the Wii U as of now. Nintendo specifically wants it that way so they can blow everybody away at the conference. The only reason they mentioned the Wii U at last years E3 was because the details on the controller were leaked and they didn’t really have any choice or time to prepare a more exciting presentation due to their focus on the 3DS.

        1. Yes, I agree but your own reasons show it’s not hard to see why some people have yet to be exited about WiiU.

          1. “Yet to be excited” is different than “being unimpressed” with the supposed “lacklustre” console.

  5. “Nintendo’s slightly lack lustre Wii U is going to have to blow us away with better specs and great first party line up”

    How about we blow you to pieces with great first and third party trolling fag. I bet he’ll say the complete opposite if Wii U dominates

    1. As a Nintendo fan, I was far from impressed by the Wii U last year, the fact it only showed third party support without showing any first party or exclusives rubbed me the wrong way. Saying that it needs to blow us away with a better line-up is constructive criticism

  6. How can the Wii U be lackluster when you know nothing of the specs or how powerful it really is? Think before you speak. Leave luck to heaven.
