GamesCom 2013: Did Microsoft Just Win The Conference Showdown?

VideoGamer: "There was a lot of talking, but not a lot was actually said. Sony and Microsoft's press conferences were perfunctionary more than explosive - the latter being kept only for those in attendance - even with the announcements of PS4's release date and Microsoft's commitment to making sure that FIFA is played by every human being, ever..." (Gamescom 2013, Microsoft, PS3, PS4, Sony, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

Won what?I believe both events weren't ground breaking and could have benefited from huge exclusive software being revealed.
MWong  +   392d ago
I wasn't too impressed with either conference. I wanted to see more reveals than what we saw.
gaffyh  +   392d ago
I think the big thing at MS was FIFA 14 being free, but that's not much compared to the slew of indie games, plus Vita price cut, plus release date, plus 32 countries at launch etc.
ShinMaster  +   392d ago | Well said
If you buy a PS4 and FIFA separately, it would still be cheaper than the Xbox One with free FIFA.

Just saying.
Saigon  +   392d ago
@ShinMaster

You said the right thing. Though MS made that announcement it reallys mean nothing when it comes to nickel and dimes. The PS4 with FIFA 14 still cost less than the inclusion of an Xbone with FIFA 14. I watched the sony conference and I am a little mad most people have yet to talk about what was really shown. Sony showed the UI in action. Sony also showed a slew of 1st party games that were in development, some that were really good and I wish they showed more of those games.

But I honestly think regardless what Sony showed there would have been issues because MS and Nintendo did not have a conference. MS showed nothing in their 40 minute closed conference but gave a lot of information. Sony showed a slew of information along with the Vita and PS4 remote play. I guess to each their own.
JeffGUNZ  +   392d ago
@ Shinmaster. The Xbox One is more expensive due to Kinect being bundled, simple as that. Free Fifa on top of that is a solid move by MS.
MWong  +   392d ago
@ JeffGUNZ
A solid move from M$ would be bundle the Kinect with the XBone and reduce the console price. I honestly thought at GamesCom M$ would release a standalone console version of the XBone. Why because the Kinect isn't mandatory anymore.

I can buy a PS4 + Fifa 14 + DLC & I get a free 14 day trail period of PS+ all for the price of an XBone.

I thought Microsofts great lineup and hands on approach was refreshing and easily better than what sony did which seemed to be relying on indie support and "goodwill" for not introducing drm. Thats nice but Im more interested in seeing something big from ND or Santa Monica.

Hey is this it or are they going to show more tomorrow?

MS did a great job getting themselves out of the way and letting the games do the talking. Sony had some good but set themselves up for disappointment by teasing exclusives and only revealing basically indies. Also Sony keep attacking MS as if they were back in middle school while MS is focusing on making up for its past blunders. MS wins this one, but Sony helped them.
Underworld  +   392d ago
Couldn't disagree more. In no way did Microsoft win. What did they announce? Fifa free with pre-orders in Europe, Fable and some exclusive content for The Division. Can't remember what else.

Sony's was much better. Not as good I was hoping but still good. Yeah, it would have been nice to see more of The Order and an Uncharted 4 reveal but we still got a lot.

Some things:

PS Vita price drop
Assassin's Creed 3 free for PS plus
Remote play shown with AC
Shadow of the Beast
War Thunder
Everybody's Gone to the Rapture
Rime
A lot of indie games (positive or negative)
LittleBigPlanet Hub
Borderlands 2 for Vita
Minecraft
More Killzone
More Infamous
Spoke about some of the features and apps
Release date

That's a lot.

Not only is it also on PC, but when the developers have been interviewed about it coming to more platforms they never give haste to say no. Also, it's published by EA so if theres any indication that it may come to PS4, it's that.
iamnsuperman  +   392d ago
I disagree. I made my view on the FIFA thing here http://n4g.com/user/blogpos... but they didn't really announce anything but that. Sony announced and showed game after game showing support for indies. It is a shame that they didn't showcase more AAA titles but it is nice to see these indies get a focus and the fact they are coming next year

I agree. They seem to have announced that they are giving FIFA free and reaffirmed what we already knew about indie development. I'm not really sure what else they had.

On the Sony side, I have to say that I was surprised by the large Vita focus but pleasantly so. They announced some nice looking titles like Rime. I did go through the conference wondering when the big PS4 games were coming but overall the conference left me with a positive impression.

Gamer666  +   392d ago
The indie message is getting old and oversold...

And if I look at my games collection, I don't find indie games are the types I keep going back to...

They definitely provide some ground breaking ideas. But, I don't want to have to weed through hundreds of shovelware indie games to find the few I actually like...

Both announced some new games but neither announced megaton games. Both announced DLC content, but I give the edge to MS with exclusive Division DLC. Sony announced their launch date and MS announced the launch titles, guess the reverse will be true at TGS - Then we can compare real shipping titles and launch dates. MS did announce a unique thing... A new third party release bundled with pre-ordered consoles, which is probably going to help European pre-orders.

So, I give a slight edge to MS.
T2  +   392d ago
You give a slight edge for dlc over shadow, rapture , and rime ? Wow you really dont play many types of games I guess
Saigon  +   392d ago
I think the problem is that people don't understand indie games are what define the future of games in general. You may disagree with that but in some form of light it is true. Most of Sony main studios were originally indie companies that made a concept that Sony liked and they adopted the concept as a whole along with the game. Perfect example as of recent is MM makers of LittleBigPlanet. If I am not mistaken ND was once an indie company and Sony not only adopted the concept ND created but the company itself. Notice how whenever an indie company is bought by a major publisher the original founder or co founder seems to always leave and start another indie company. Its a rotating process. I support Sony's decision, because I understand where it could lead. And to not leave MS out, they are adapting this concept also.
Gamer666  +   392d ago
@Saigon.

Almost all development studios start as indies.

I do realize that indies are important, but it seems right now as if they are more important then established studios that constantly deliver great games... Naughty Dogg, Guerilla, 343, Visceral, Twisted Pixel, Sony Santa Monica, Rockstar Boston, UbiSoft Montreal, EA Vancouver, etc.

You have to remember that the AAA franchises are typically $100 million dollar adventures. By not giving focus to these huge investments gamers may end up in a situation where there are only indie games that only cost a few $100,000 to create. There has to be balanced so that great games like Killzone, Halo, CoD, BF, God of War, Gears of War, etc. still are released.
Saigon  +   392d ago
@Gamer666

I actually disagree with that statement about AAA games needing big budgets in order to be successful or considered AAA. the big budget didn't really occur until last generation and this current generation. The prices to produce games were extremely out of whack the last two generations. In such that we received less games overall this generation than the previous, at least by my knowledge. Look at some of the acclaimed games that were released without a big budget, but received countless awards. Most of them were indie games with small budgets. A perfect example is bastion and flower and oh there are so many to list. We've hit the ceiling on the cost of big budget/AAA games and now it is time to revert. Not meaning not to provide a good budget to create a AAA game, but applying a reasonable budget for these games. Studios shouldn't have to go out of business because they couldn't meet the demand of other AAA games.

MS went from 1st place and lots of positive buzz to 3rd place and so much negative buzz about their next console that they've been backtracking and changing policies since the reveal.

Now I still have the Xbox One on preorder for 499€ and I get Fifa. This is what happened today, nothing else.

*edit* and if you want to do the maths:

PS4 + Fifa 14 + PS camera = $520 -.-

But all these calculations are stupid anyway. I buy what I want to have based on what is offered. And Sony just confirmed that they don't offer anything I am interested in. Have fun with your indie games though.

You're just an idiot. The Xbox One comes with MORE then the PS4, of course it will cost a little more. Funny, everyone like yourself justified the PS3 price point always being higher, now it's an issue that the Xbox One is higher? Listen big guy, Xbox One with the best launch games and extra features, combo with Kinect 2.0 and now Fifa? $500 sounds fine. If you're really complaining over $400 to $500, then you probably should pick up a new hobby. No one said gaming is cheap.

I play on all three systems and admire the strengths of all three but I can't get over how fun it is to back Xbox on this site. A big thanks goes to all the Sony fan boys who work so hard to make themselves look silly on a daily basis...I'm referring to the trolls...not Sony fans in general as I am one... Don't worry Sony fans that can carry two thoughts in your heads, Sony will bring out some hurt like they always do, but if you can, enjoy the X1 while you wait.
MrBeatdown  +   392d ago
@walkincarpet

You know, if you're going to mock PS3 fanboys, you could at least do yourself a favor and not single out Killzone, seeing as how of all the exclusive franchises announced for PS4 and X1, Killzone has one of the best track records on current gen systems.

Outside of Halo, according to Metacritic, Killzone is rated as well as, or better than the last two games in any series returning on Xbox One (Forza, Fable, Dead Rising).

They're also higher rated than the last two games from developers working on a new IP for Xbox One (Crytek, Insomniac).

I guess if Killzone is "a B game", everything Microsoft's offering is too.

And despite all those "shortcomings" and the higher initial price, I still see the xbox offering me more enjoyment than a PS4 ever could, and many others think this way as well. I think the mindset for many is that they would rather pay more for something they actually want, than less for something they don't. If you and others see the X1 as an inferior product, so be it, we're still buying it.

That being said, FIFA is nowhere near a f2p game. Xbox One owners have got a great game on their hands for free. I just hope it doesn't turn into a p4w game.

I have read my post 5x now and i can't find the spot where i said all F2P games are good. My questions is when ahve F2p games been considered bad?

To name a few Great f2p games
League Of Legends
Planetside 2
Runescape
Star wars( I liked it for the couple months i spent playing it)
TeamFortress 2
Tribes
DCUO
DOTA 2
Guild Wars
World of tanks is decent
Hawken is close to being pretty damn good
Warframe looks pretty good
Battlefield.
Mechwarrior

Alot of quality MMO games

Also F2p is making a push to being the future for alot of games. Anyways obviousy there are a ton of bad ones but there a good amount of good ones. So again my orginal question was when did F2p games become bad?
USA007  +   392d ago
Obviously you don't play f2p games. Games like Planetside 2 and Hawken will not play on your mobile phone. PS2 has thousands of players in one battle, on the ground and in the air. No console game has ever gotten close to that scale.

Your beloved Xbox is having KI as a F2P game. @ Blackmanone I was playing Tekken, and it's a pretty good game for a F2P, and PS3 is getting Ace Combat Infinity as F2P, I think you and Jrxbarrett are simply plain ignorant beings, just because Sony has a more focus on F2P games than MS, you make it sound as a bad thing, but if it's the other way around, y'all praise MS as the saviors. Before ya keep saying nonsense, check out the definition of Free2Play, and how does it work because obviously ya don't know what the hell you're talking about.

Ya live in Planet Ignorance.

Look at the pre order sales. People are fully aware of tactics. So they went with the console that was honest from the start. The game will come on both consoles and if EA chooses to picks MS money over being far to both console parties. Then that's their choice.

Ubisoft is the clear leader so far in Next Gen 3rd party developers. So they continually coming out in support of Sony is a huge advantage also.

Watch Dogs PS4 bundle is #1 in all bundles.

I don't agree with everything you said but i do believe ubisoft games -BF4 are gonna be better quality games then EA games.
ZBlacktt  +   392d ago
Sales pre orders.

People not smart enough to see how many time MS flip flopped and why.

Game not coming to both consoles.

What about the news on all those countries over there not even getting the XBox One until 2014?

How they had no showing at gamescom? So stop with the fanboy crap already
XabiDaChosenOne  +   392d ago
Both were pretty boring but I'm pretty sure playstation had more announcements :-\
Thomper  +   392d ago
Yep.. Dull "we love second rate Indy" announcements

If I want to play bad 2d 80's games, I'll play them in their original state on my console collection.

Indy games are like iPad apps, mainly sh1t, with the odd gem....

if you think Indy games are second rate, one word... JOURNEY

Xbox community downplaying indy games, wow that's new, it really shows how awesome ya fanburgers really are that you're already showing your true colors, almost everyone in the entire gaming industry started as an indy dev, Naughty Dog, Santa Monica, Insomniac, Bungie, and more of these awesome AAA studios started life as indy devs, even Batman Begins movie was hailed as "Indy Batman" because it totally broke the trend of the older movies, and made by indy film makers, that and the Dark Knight duo are the most successful in the entire franchise, and that led to the already successful Man Of Steel, indy work leads to big studios plus bigger and better games you idiots, ya Xbox Beliebers are nothing but demographic and misinformed morons, lol.

HAR HAR HAR, MS didn't win this round, sorry. Sony kept the game announcements coming. Showing their support for ALL of their systems, not just one.
DragonKnight  +   392d ago
Let's see. A conference that could be seen by everyone online, that showed many interesting indie games, had a release date announced, and was open about everything...

VS

A conference that was privately shown, didn't have a release date announced, didn't have interesting indie games, and whose biggest announcement was a great short term move but not a huge coup given that the game is still multiplatform.

Hmmmm. A conference that was seen by the masses vs. a conference that wasn't. Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm.
NateCole  +   392d ago
Since when is annoucing free digital copies of a multiplat for preorders in one market constitute a win?.This is funny.
solidworm  +   392d ago

Sony won for me. They should some good looking games that really caught my eye. MurasakiBaby, Big Fest, and Rime looked awesome. Sony gave me so much games. Yes there not AAA games but damn do they look good. I really don't see GamesCom as the place to announce big new AAA games, it usually is a follow and update on E3 games. E3 and TGS are uaually the place where these games get announced. I am expecting a lot from PS4 at TGS especially with reports of MS not showing up. Most of the franchise I'm waiting for a next gen update are Japanese franchise.
elda  +   392d ago
Hopefully some FFXV,KH3 & other great japanese game goodies!
