    Although I am more of a PS/XB guy I will say that that Nintendo won this E3. They came with many surprises all of which were pretty decent. Surprises include third party exclusives, good Nintendo franchises returning like Star Fox and some new creative and fan ideas emerging. Not so big surprises but still delightful returns is Zelda which looks gorgeous and from how things appear it oozes quality
    Sony and MS showed almost nothing we didnt expect if any.

    Otherwise it was pretty meh all round.

    I assume that Sony have projects/titles which they'd rather announce after Morpheus is finalized and gets a release date.

    In terms of personnel, in 2013 they were selling a dream, in 2014 they're selling a product - IMHO Cerny wouldn't be in his element... but if/when morpheus approaches launch they'll return to 'selling a dream' so we might see the tech guys rolled out again?

    Surprisingly, i actually thought nobody embarrassed themselves this time thankfully. Nintendo had a great showing with bayonetta, zelda, smash and Xenoblade.

    I liked the sony presser where we finally got to see project beasts, TLOU remaster and since a majority of the third party games im getting on ps4, exclusive count didnt really bother me.

    and for microsoft, they had one of the best gaming deals for 60 dollars i ever saw, with halo collection(really, makes me angry i paid for halo anniversary and halo 4 both at full price), along with kamiya's new game, and project spark.

    It really is a good time to be a gamer.

    Sony, no question. Yeah they went on a bit about tv, but there was a ton of content at their conference that wasn't matched by the others. Also, the announcement regarding playing Far Cry 4 multiplayer for free is a very important one indeed.

    With Andrew House on the same stage ? Then it may be high level corporate speak, and/or developer treatment. Would be more interesting if someone talk about how they made the U4 trailer, plus charts showing run-time states.

    They may want to reserve some bullets for Amazon, Apple and Google's announcements in fall.

    Nintendo's conference was good, but most titles are 2015 games.

    You're welcome! I can't wait to play with it myself. Tried it out on my wife's Win8 machine & it was way too slow to even play. Hopefully the 360 version will be out soon.

    For me:

    No Man's Sky

    Bloodbourne

    Ori and the Blind Forest

    in no particular order.


    Special Nod to MS for having a gaming focused conference, which convinced me to buy a X1 - they are back on track!

    dumbo11, it matters not to me that Sony is selling the product. Cerny would have been a good choice because PS4 is his baby and him being on stage would likely have resulted in a better conference. The PS4 should still be marketed as a dream come reality and if they had that attitude at the conference it would have come off better. Just saying Sony should know better, and had better get better at this.

    patsu, the subject matter of the speech will be the history of Playstation, gaming in general, and what the next 100 years will look like from I guess Sony's perspective. Every time I've seen Cerny in an interview or a speech the man makes me like him all the more. I have confidence this keynote will be no different and hopefully the half that is Cerny will be able to outshine the dullness of House. Who knows, maybe House won'tbe so boring or arrogant this time around. Here's a link to an article about it.

    Azbat, I've looked at more Project Spark content across different sites and after reading a few impressions I'm even more interested. I'll be getting this for the XB1. It looks awesome.



    One other feeling that has vanished from me since seeing the MS conference is the feeling of being pissed off they dropped Kinect as part of the core machine. I'm not saddened by this and now think it was a good move on their part. If it means more systems in the hands of gamers then that means more games coming my way! If I hadn't already purchased an XB1 at launch last year then I'd be picking one up for sure now.

    Sony's conference was bogged down with that nonsense TV stuff and the silly executive talk.

    MS presented game after game, giving us a sense of giving us what we want and moved seamlessly

    The Halo reveal was top peg stuff too especially that it's coming this year

    I don't think we have winner this year. I mean all conferences are from good to ok, but content and big suprises were missing. Microsofts and EA's style for games, games and more games is way to go... but it really shows if one lags behind in development (EA basically got nothing new ready). Ubi had it's usual offbeat conference, but again, totally new games and IPs were lacking.

    While I'm happy that GTA5 was announced in Sonys conference, I don't think it's enough for me to give 'em win.

    Nintendo is default winner for not playing :cool:

    No Man's Sky for me too. It looks amazing. I'm worried that the team is too small to make the game truly great though.

    Microsoft's organisation was definitely the strongest, even if they haven't sold me an Xbox One yet.
