5 Most Shocking E3 Moments

Peter Moore's Halo 2 bicep flex, the original PS3 sticker price, and the outlawing of booth babes all knocked us off our feet. Blair Herter rounds up our full list of the most shocking moments in E3 history.

The story is too old to be commented.

How dare they ban our booth babes!

Peh. Gaming doesn't need booth babes.

Uhm I would have put the Final Fantasy XIII for 360 reveal on there, that was like the shot heard across the world.

Don't get why so many disagrees... That blew me away, even if there were mixed reactions it was still HUGE.

There are lots of users on here with a short attention spam. They see Final fantasy and 360 together and they go into over butt hurt without fully reading the sentence.

That was one of the most shocking moments, and N4G along with other sites were at an uproar during that time. Fans in disbelief and 360 fanboys trumping up their huge victory. If you were a Sony fanboy at that time, there was no way to make sense of it or defend against the attacks from the 360 fanboys for losing a major exclusive franchise.

I'd have to vote for E3 2013, which saw announcements for Star Trek Armada 3, Star Wars Empire at War 2, Freespace 3, Civilization VI, Mechwarrior 5, Legacy of Kain: Finale, Ghost Trick 2, and a new trailer for Final Fantasy Versus XIII with 85% old footage.

Still no Half-Life 3, Kingdom Hearts 3 or Last Guardian? :/

Xof2241d ago

You don't remember the infamous Game Day? On April 1st, 2013, Sony and Valve announced a new partnership: Half Life 3, Kingdom Hearts 3, Last Guardian, Dark Souls, and a half dozen other games were simultaneously released on the PSN and Steam.

It was glorious.

S-E was super-nice, and went ahead and offered moderately-priced HD ports of all their old titles on Steam.

Don't forget Modern Warfare 15, that looked great.

enfestid2240d ago

Modern Warfare 15? Don't be silly, that doesn't fit with Activision's release schedule for the franchise.

Clearly we'll be on Modern Warfare 752 by next year.

Gabe's appearance at Sony's conference was truly a shocker

Yah, for all his hate of the PS3, seeing him walk out their had the jaws of many drop.

Glad to see what they chose for #1. Totally shocking.
