"What an E3. Sony came out swinging, all but weaponizing the PlayStation 4 with an arsenal of promises about used games, game lending and offline play. Microsoft spent much of the show deflecting media opprobrium about the Xbox One’s less consumer-friendly take on those points, wheeling out games, games and more games like a lion tamer trying to stay one step ahead of the lions. And Nintendo…well, Nintendo chose to step outside the ring entirely, spotlighting first-party reveals like Super Mario 3D World, Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze and Mario Kart 8. As class acts go, Nintendo was arguably the classiest in its just-the-facts Nintendo Direct@E3 Presentation.", writes Time.
