E3 is quickly coming, and with it comes the usual mounds of speculation. However, the fine, fine journalists at Destructoid took a novel approach: they consulted a psychic.
Check it out.
To summarize: The psychic did tarot readings of Nintendo, Sony, and Microsoft, detailing their current standings and where they will go in the future. Then, using pendulum readings, the psychic answered specific yes-or-no questions. Questions of note:
"Will Nintendo announce a new Star Fox game? The pendulum responds: Yes.
Wii it have online multiplayer support? The pendulum responds: No."
"Will a new Mega Man 2D side-scroller be announced? The pendulum responds: Yes."
"Will Square Enix announce the release date of Kingdom Hearts: 358/2 Days? The pendulum responds: Yes.
What about Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep? The pendulum responds: No.
Or better yet, will they announce Kingdom Hearts 3? The pendulum responds: No."
"Will Nintendo release Mother 3 on the DS? The pendulum responds: Yes."
"Will a new 2D Sonic game for PSN/Xbox Live/WiiWare be announced? The pendulum responds: Yes."
"Was the recent announcement of the Metroid Prime Trilogy for the Wii planned to coincide with the shocking announcement of a brand new Metroid game? The pendulum responds: Yes."
Ordinarily, I'd be skeptical of this - especially the pendulum readings. However, the psychic's tarot readings of the individual companies seem spot on. With that in mind, I think I'm going to have to keep these predictions in mind.
(Plus, the prediction about Mother 3 on DS is especially exciting.)
