For the past few years, people have accused E3 of becoming a rather dull affair. Companies show their games, fans support whoever they’re most loyal to, and journalists are forced to give press conferences silly report card grades. Rinse and repeat.
But not this year. In over a decade of watching E3 events, I’ve honestly never seen one company completely and utterly destroy a competitor like what happened last night between Sony and Microsoft MSFT -1.89%. It may sound like hyperbole, but what took place over the course of the day will send shockwaves through this entire next console generation.
