"I don't predict anything for Microsoft"

What a surprise. Seriously, this sites negativity towards Microsoft and worshiping of Sony is past tedious.

Who do I think will win? Well, as a multiplatform gamer, I'd say me and every other gamer who goes into E3 wanting more than a biased victory, I dont care about exclusives, but I have a multitude of platforms that will recieve them and I am welcoming of that but I also watch E3 for the multiplatforms. The gamers are the winners, the fanboys are the losers...

You know what else is tedious? Hypersensitive Xbox fans that need to use a tiny snippet of a whole paragraph to make a point that's irrelevant to the post they are commenting on, and avoid any kind of discussion disputing the actual claim that was made.

You clearly think the negativity of "not predicting anything" in this case is unwarranted, so enlighten us as to why that is.

Beatdown are you saying that this site is not biased to sony and its just Microsoft fanboys being sensitive?

Btw, I don't own a console, but it is clear which console is loved most on this site.

@Bladesfist

Did I say anything about the Sony bias on this site? No, I didn't.

Biased posts are annoying. But I'm pointing out that it's just as annoying to listen to people cry about the bias, and use it as an excuse to criticize the opinions of others, especially when it's unwarranted.

Like I said, Kingdom chose to complain about MacDonagh's prediction, but couldn't even offer any differing viewpoint. If you have to take issue with the fact that something appears to be a negative, instead of taking issue with what that "something" actually is, you're probably just as biased as anyone.

If somebody is saying something out of bias, point out WHY it is being said out of bias. Don't just complain that it is. If you can't say WHY, you probably shouldn't be complaining in the first place. And in MacDonagh's case, I skimmed through his comments. None of them struck me as biased. If Kingdom think's he's biased, he should back it up. Tell us all why MacDonagh's lack of predictions is just wild fanboy spin designed to make Microsoft look bad and make Sony look like the glorious leader of all things gaming. Back it up.

Or we can just keep turning the comments of this website into a cesspit of wild accusations towards anyone that has an opinion that differs from our own.

EDIT: One disagree already.

I guess that's +1 for the wild accusations option.

Well after just watching MS E3 conference I'd have to say MacDonagh and Mr Beatdown were right.

Another Forza October 2012.

There was absolutely nothing wowing there. Halo 4 looked great graphically and has some new tools, but I'm not a Halo fan. November 2012

We have a new Gears of War prequel for 2013.

Splinter Cell looks like a mix between Splinter Cell Conviction meets the Previous Splinter Cells meets Assassins Creed meets Michael Bay. I don't remember the date.

Timed exclusive DLC for Tomb Raider, Resident Evil 6, Call of Duty, and I think something else.

Kinect support for Madden and Fifa. Dance Central 3.

More MS partners for XBL (Nike).

Usher performs for Dance Central (he needs to retire)

and closes with Black Ops 2, which looks like another COD.

MS Grade: C. It wasn't bad, but there was nothing special.

What exceptional original IPs is Microsoft going to be showing at this event? Other than multi-platform releases, what else doe Microsoft have to look forward to other than promoting Kinect games or anything like that? Exactly. Besides, I'm fairly sure that I've been balanced on each system anyway; so there's no need to be so overtly sensitive. Thanks for playing!

No one will "WIN" E3. There is no award for winning handed out by the promoters of E3. So, basically you are inventing something that doesn't exist and pushing it as if it does. That makes no sense.

Congratulations for not reading the blog post. Since you're clearly not able to read; check out the related video for completely missing the point.

Every single year there are tens and tens of articles of who will "win" and who "won" E3. It's hardly anything he came up with.
thorstein  +   685d ago
Exactly, Since Macdonagh clearly can't read, most other people will get your point.

To be true, there are plenty of sites that hand out best of E3 awards, or recognize a companies exceptional effort to provide for their loyal consumers.

Just look through your games. I'm sure you'll find one with "best of E3 by _____.com"

The real winners are the devs that can prove to you that their games are worth your money.

From a business sense, Microsoft wins this year's E3. They have such a lack of new Ips and exclusives, yet they can get away with just announcing another Gears and Halo game, and that's all a Microsoft console needs, along with the most important feature, marketing.

Sony on the other hand, will pump out the most games, yet will remain in third in sales, unless you take into account the xbox 360's headstart and worldwide sales, in which case, PS3 has been selling better.

Quality wise, Sony will probably "win" E3 again, like last year, and the year before that.

Nintendo, I rather not waste my time talking about their 100th mario game they'll probably announce.

An interesting viewpoint but I respectfully disagree on completely writing off Nintendo just yet, due to the fact that their launch line-up hasn't been finalized nor has there been much indication of whether or not the Wii U will have some solid 3rd party support. I'd be interested in their plans for online play and whether or not they'll drop their friend code shtick for something more palatable to the gaming public. Also, just to add on your Mario point; he has appeared in over 200 video games for Nintendo according to his Wiki page.

Mario must be the most overworked mascot in video gaming.

As long as the Mario platform games are excellent, and they are, I don't really care how many games he's been in.

Because as it is, no other developer makes platform games as good as Nintendo.
Wintersun616  +   685d ago
@beerkeg,

I've personally had more fun with platformers like Ratchet & Clank, Sly Cooper, Crash Bandicoot (PS1), Spyro (PS1) and Jak & Daxter. But Mario has a special place in my heart too though. :)
Nes_Daze  +   685d ago
I understand what you're saying, who wouldn't want to overwork a successful gaming mascot, the MOST successful I think. But I no longer see Nintendo as an option for me as a gamer. Their Wii was lacking third party support, and the first party lineup consisted of the SAME thing I saw back with the gamecube, and Ninty 64 before it. I doubt the WiiU will stray away from those same ol first party games that I've grown tired of. We'll see though, just personally I'm not interested in Nintendo when it comes to gaming.
