Matt Randisi writes There have been many assumptions concerning the reasons the console war during E3 went down the way it did. Regardless of what type of gamer you are it is difficult to dispute that Sony landed crushing blow after crushing blow to Microsoft’s hopes to come out smelling like an expensive bouquet of freshly cut roses. Objectively looking back at both press conferences it is also hard to convincingly say that Microsoft had a poor showing however, the situation simply was Sony had a better showcase because they bested their adversaries match point in just about every aspect. The only arguable exception to this may be the Xbox One’s sheer amount of exclusives, including the well-received Titanfall. I would agree with the idea that Microsoft never really stood a chance however, but the reasons may be more complicated than one may think.
