Microsoft, Sony, Nintendo: Who's got your attention at E3?

GameZone writes, 'It's officially June, folks, which means it's time to begin the E3 predictions and hype articles. While last year's Electronic Entertainment Expo was lackluster, to say the least, this year promises the continuation of next-gen console reveals -- at least from Microsoft and Sony. With the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 officially announced, we are full steam ahead in the next-gen console war. We're less than two weeks away, ladies and gents. Which of the big three -- Sony, Microsoft, or Nintendo -- are you most excited to hear more from at E3?' (3DS, PS Vita, PS3, PS4, Wii U, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

I have an E3rection for all that awaits. God I'm about to bust.
3-4-5  +   403d ago
All of them.

Nintendo - 3D Mario, Legend of Zelda U, Mario Kart U, Super Smash Brothers, Pikmin 3, other random games

3DS - can't wait to hear/see new info

PS4 - Really want to see what the PS4 looks like. They've already announced a really strong lineup so I want to see more in game footage of each of those, especially knack.

XB1 - These 15 games they've been talking about. There are so many great possibilities, I'm just not sure that Microsoft understands what these possibilities are.

They could bring back some great franchises from Xbox original and also there is so much room for new IP's as well. The reveal disappointed me, but I'm hoping they surprise us with great games.
truechainz  +   402d ago
All 3 for me. Though the presence of Smash Bros. at all make this E3 worthwhile. Anything else is sweet sweet icing on the cake.
Snookies12  +   403d ago
Sony for sure, mainly because I want to see if SE will fail by not showing Versus XIII again...

I really want to see it, but I'm not holding my breath. If I were, I'd be dead 7 years ago lol.
weekev15  +   403d ago
SE have released their e3 lineup with a severe lack of XIII versus so its a good job you arent holding your breath.

Im excited for the unexpected. Something massive that no-one knows about.
Prophet-Gamer  +   403d ago
I don't think they'd put unannounced games on those lists.
weekev15  +   402d ago
@ prophet

Its not unannounced, they have been open about the fact its in development. We just havent seen it yet.

I agree as a gamer I am looking forward to seeing what all 3 offer.

If I've read Bravo Two Zero...doesn't mean I've fought in Iraq!

I've been a gamer since late 1970's...does that make me a "Real/true" gamer?

Same here, and the EA and Ubi presentation as well.

E3 is like the annual Christmas catalog from a major department store when we were kids to a gamer.
yugovega  +   403d ago
nintendo and microsoft honestly. sony seems to know where they are going and their cards are on the table. e3 may be alot of media for sony. now microsoft is going to show out because they have to. be nice to see all the stops they are going to pull out. and nintendo finally in hd. happy to see what they can do with hd.
mushroomwig  +   403d ago
Microsoft, mainly because of their 15 exclusives promise back when they revealed their new console. I'm curious to see exactly what they have to offer the gamers.
ylwzx3  +   403d ago
Nintendo for me Xbox can go $@#! itself.
JeffGUNZ  +   403d ago
MS and Sony. I really want to see what tricks they have up their sleeves. I am ready for some new blockbuster IP's from both developers.

All of them honestly. It's always exciting to see what the future of gaming holds.

Despite the fact that I'm not really an Xbox guy it'll be interesting to see what Microsoft will have on offer.

That being said I'm really exited for Sony's conference and Nintendo's Direct. Sony's gonna show off some amazing looking games for PS4, PS3 and Vita and I'm hopeful for an appearance of The Last Guardian and Versus XIII. Can't wait to see what unannounced projects they've been working on.

Also the cool thing about Nintendo is that they're actually having 3 Nintendo Directs one for North America, one for Europe and one for Japan. So it's like all regions have their very own E3 which is really nice for them. Hoping to see Smash Bros, 3D Mario, Monolith's "X", Bayonetta 2, Retro's new game and hopefully they have some surprises in store.

All in all I'm extremely excited for what this year's E3 will offer me as a gamer.
TheEvilWithin  +   403d ago
I can't wait for those games as well plus I can't wait for a release date for Earthbound for the Wii U virtual console. I hope at Sony's conference Square Enix at LEAST show a trailer for Kingdom Hearts 3. One can only wish plus Uncharted 4 would be killer. Knack seems like it might be a lot of fun as well.
chadboban  +   403d ago
Holy crap Kingdom Hearts 3! Completely forgot about the possibility of that being there! One can hope right.

Uncharted 4 would be cool, can't wait to see what ND can pull off on the PS4. And I really want to see more gameplay of Knack as well.

Also wouldn't it be awesome if they also bought Mother 1(aka Earthbound Zero) and 3 on the eshop. From what I understand Mother 1 was fully translated into English but never had a retail release in America or Europe and the guy who did the Mother 3 translation is actually offering Nintendo his english translation for absolutely free. It would be awesome if Nintendo could bring all the Mother titles stateside. I would buy them in a heartbeat.
JimCom95  +   403d ago
If KH3 is announced i will explode!
TheEvilWithin  +   403d ago
Well I guess someone saw on Amazon UK that they priced Earthbound for the Wii U at 39.99 or something like that so people are thinking we MIGHT be getting all three state side... fingers crossed!
_QQ_  +   403d ago
i'm curious about all 3 but my main anticipation is square enix, because maybe just maybe they announce KH3.

Does anyone know of a UK timetable for the conference, can't seem to find one.

Also I'm really looking forward to Sony.

Sony conference is at 2am on the 11th UK time.

lifesanrpg  +   403d ago
I HOPE Sony teases a new Kingdom Hearts.

Edit: Yes, but if you remember the PS4 announcement, Square Enix came on stage after the old tech demo and said they also had another announcement.

WiiUsauce  +   403d ago
The only reason why I'd buy an Xbox One is for Halo. It's my favorite fps franchise of all time. No shooter will ever come close in my opinion.
PerryCaravello  +   403d ago
I'm ONLY interested in PS4/Xbox.

Nintendo hasn't even appeared on my radar for months now. The only articles I see about nintendo are negative ones about developers dropping support or lacking games etc etc..

With nintendo not even having a public E3 press conference this year, it's become fairly irrelevant what nintendo does. I don't have time to wait for slow information to trickle in about wiiu, while PS4/Xbox are available via LIVE STREAM.
chadboban  +   403d ago
Um... yeah, it really is apparent that you haven't been paying attention to Nintendo.

First of all, they will be at E3 and have one of the biggest booths.

http://www.neogaf.com/forum...

They will be livestreaming their presentation as well through what is called a Nintendo Direct.

http://www.ign.com/articles...

Third, the press will have their own look at Nintendo's games at E3 through a presentation by Reggie and Miyamoto.

http://www.ign.com/articles...

Nintendo will definitely have a big presence at E3 this year and I'm excited to see what all 3 companies have to show.

I'm not interested in nintendo's "biggest booth."

I don't have time to go down to the convention center like a loser, I have a life.

See, this is where E3 PRESS CONFERENCE comes into play. A live stream allows the flow of information in real time. A booth that I will not attend doesn't help me at all, nor a closed door 'press presentation.'

Dude, don't just respond to my comments with nonsense.
BosSSyndrome  +   403d ago
Do you not understand what a Nintendo Direct is.
gamer42  +   403d ago
"See, this is where E3 PRESS CONFERENCE comes into play. A live stream allows the flow of information in real time. A booth that I will not attend doesn't help me at all, nor a closed door 'press presentation.'"

Didn't chadboban just state that they were going to live stream it through a nintendo direct, a special online presentation of what nintendo's doing. (Like E3) The E3 nintendo Direct is on june 11.
They even have a countdown to the presentation.
http://e3.nintendo.com/

"I'm not interested in nintendo's "biggest booth.""
but aren't you saying that nintendo isn't going to be relevent at E3?

"Dude, don't just respond to my comments with nonsense."

Ummm... chad replied with facts, you're the one that's completely ignoring what chadboban is saying and replying with 'nonsense'.

Hey thanks man! It's nice to know that someone has my back.
PerryCaravello  +   402d ago
Once again. Nobody other than nintendo fans even know what a 'nintendo direct' is lol. This is not a solution to a missing press conference.

What are the chances the entire media blitz around E3 will come down to SONY/MICROSOFT.

Let's be realists here. Do you think any press outlet is going to bother mentioning nintendo lol. Come on, just stop.

Nintendo messed up yet again. All you're doing is damage control for a company that doesn't even know you exist, nor do they care lol.
chadboban  +   402d ago
Dude calm down. What do you mean "nonsense"? Everything I said there was fact plus I provided sources.

It doesn't really matter to me if you like Nintendo or not, we're all different so it'd be pretty unreasonable of me to expect you to like what I like. I was just correcting you since you seem to still insist that Nintendo won't be LIVE STREAMING their information even though I clearly showed you that they are. It's okay to not like Nintendo but at least get your facts straight bro.

And don't be calling the folks that go to E3 "losers", those are your fellow gamers you're talking about, that's rude as hell man.
chadboban  +   402d ago
Lol! Sorry man, but that whole "the press will ignore Nintendo" thing isn't realistic, it's just wishful thinking on your part. The press' job is to inform people about all of the announcements being made at E3 and yes that includes Nintendo. You seriously think people will ignore something like a new Smash Bros announcement? I know you probably won't care and I can understand that.

I mean seriously, I've said it before, Nintendo isn't really your thing and that's okay. I'm not much of an Xbox guy myself, I'm more into Sony and Nintendo's stuff but that doesn't mean I feel the need to bash Microsoft just because Xbox has never really been my thing.

And seriously "damage control"? Correcting one person on the internet is damage control? The only people who have to worry about damage control are Nintendo themselves. The Wii U is not in a good position right now and they are the ones who have to turn it around. Hell I don't even own a Wii U yet. I'm looking forward to Nintendo's E3 to see if they will give me reasons to get one sooner rather than later.

"I don't have time to go down to the convention center like a loser, I have a life"

Not sure if you heard but demos will be available for Nintendo games at best buys. Forget live stream when you can try out the games if it is close enough. It seems however that you are mostly jealous that you can't go. Sad you resorted to calling the attendees losers though. . .

"I don't have time to wait for slow information to trickle in about wiiu, while PS4/Xbox are available via LIVE STREAM."

The first Nintendo direct starts before E3 does so you get their info first. Also I live stream of a conference would only limit their time which would not be best optimized as it would with a prepared Nintendo Direct. Feel free to continue pretending that people dont know about it cuz those millions of viewers must just be one guy using millions of computers... It's cool if you don't like Nintendo which clearly you don't, but like Chadboban said there is no need to troll Nintendo on sites like this. You woulda came out looking fine if you ended your comment after saying you are only interested in PS4/Xbox. We are all gamers and in it for the fun of it, but I really hope, for your sake and the sake of anyone who games with you online or otherwise, that you learn to grow up a little bit.

Hopefully versus 13 can be shown for maybe the ps4, a lot of vita games, and I'll be keeping an eye on Nintendo to see what they announce for the Wii u.
deafdani  +   403d ago
In my case, Nintendo mostly. Then Sony.

Not caring too much about Microsoft at the moment, but that could change depending on what they show on their E3 conference.

E3 will definitely decide which console I will be getting first. Right now each console I have seen have had some strengths but nothing too big to impress me.

I'm hoping for a really good E3 this year.
