What will be E3 2014′s game of the show? vg247 takes a look at the heavyweights headed to downtown L.A. and place some informed bets.
For Uncharted fans.
Yea an halo is for halo fans I just said the one I'm most excited for just an opinion
Uncharted will win at E3. Halo will sell more.
How about the gamers win as we get 2 great games as we all know UC and Halo are amazing games but two different game too.
Just look at sales history, Halo crushes Uncharted. Of course Halo wins its not even a competition.
Personally, Im a big Halo fan and it's one of my best gaming franchises of all time. Uncharted may wow gamers more though because it will blow our expectations wide open with its visuals. Both games are in a class of their own but Halo did more for the industry as a whole and will for me, always be king. Still, being such a big fan also means Im one of its biggest critics and if it doesn't live up to the hype then I'll be the first to say so. Both are mammoth franchises though. Let's see which game generates more buzz!
@alex Just look at GOTY awards history, Uncharted crushes Halo. Of course Uncharted wins its not even a competition.
I doubt halo will sell more, Halo 5 will be on Xbox One only and Uncharted will Be on PS4 only, respectively, who has the larger instal base?
may be uncharted, god of war, killzone and (adyourfavoritegamehere) combined vs HALO.
@Vfor Just GT7 son, just GT7
Halo because it's the full package. 343i have proved they can provide a fantastic single player, and with the help they brought in for the multiplayer, no other game can match that balance. (PS I enjoyed Halo 4 mp). Uncharted is a solid game, but Halo is just on another level. Slide Halo in at the #2 or slot for most iconic gaming franchise behind Mario. Also people love to compare console sales, can we compare the software sales of Halo and uncharted? halo4 $220 million in 24 hours, not to mention Halo went head to head with multiplat Call of Duty for years. I think its safe to say Master Chief is more known than Nathan Drake. We all know the point of this article so I participated.
Halo 5 will flop, similar to most of what MS has done this generation. Every single thing MS has done since the X1 reveal is: Hype (gauge reaction) - change stance - attempt to purchase 3rd party exclusives - hype (gauge reaction) - repeat BTW there are more Honda's sold than Ferrari's, doesn't make the Honda better.
@LazyGoron Quite a silly post and obviously showing some insecurity. Halo 5 will flop? Lol you wish. And your Honda vs Ferrari comparison is laughable.
@lazygoron LMAO Uh... no. Halo 5 is not going to flop. You might wish that it will but it won't.
Pokemon is behind Mario as the most iconic gaming franchise. Halo is iconic in the US behind Call Of Dury. You are a trueXboxFan boy... Halo won't do as well as it's predecessors unfortunately. Titanfall flopped, did well, but flopped and it released across Xbox consoles and pc. Halo will be Xbox one only, it won't do well. Decent, but will once again not expectations.
Obviously Halo, the first Halo revolutionized the gaming industry. It still serves as an inspiration for many other games. Halo 5 is set to keep its reputation.
Is there a real question here? Uncharted hands down. I've enjoyed Halo, and Guardians may be great, but more than likely it'll be a rehash of Reach (which was the best imo).
Really? I thought Reach sucked in comparison of Halo Combat Evolved imo. On topic both will be great showings so neither will win unless one is by far graphically superior then the other.
Reach was a bastard on legendary solo.
Reach was far from the best. Halo 2 best MP Halo 4 best Campaign Halo 3 ODST best Co-op And how is Halo 5 a rehash of Reach? Reach made a bunch of half measures, which pushed 343 to make those full measures in 4. They've got tons of feedback from it so I imagine that 5 will be NOTHING like Reach. And there's no way to answer that question until we see both games, so you saying "Uncharted hands down" just fits your picture.
@ beans Yes the original was really good. For me, by the time Reach rolled around, it was a refreshing take on the series. @ Opie ODST should have been called Orbital Drop Ship Sleeper! Lol! I think they put together all the cutting room floor segments from everything else into one game. The fourth installment was really good also. I hope for the best with Guardians. As I stated below, both will be incredible for their own genres...one cannot really compare the two, for they are entirely different creatures.
Both different genres. Neither are coming out this year. Only one will blow minds graphically. At least some of us have the decency to admit that both games have the potential to excel for their respective consoles.
I would just say that if I was surrounded in battle and the both show up, I am going where ever Master Chief is going. Not only that, but I hope they attack.
Agreed. IMO Halo has always been too damn boring, but to each their own.
BOTH!! I will be buying both on day 1! both are great games and both usually have great graphics and game play. Why does one have to win over the other? why cant both be winners? I cant wait to play the next halo game on my X1 which I know for sure will be THE GAME to show off to the doubters just what the X1 can achieve. People who think X1 us not capable of 60fps games with stunning graphics are delusional. However people who also think X1 will be able to catch up or surpass the PS4 power are even more delusional! even with the so called DX12 and cloud(LMAO). Halo 5 multi player should be EPIC at 60fps! I know for a fact uncharted on PS4 will set the graphical benchmark for consoles games as soon as its released. Uncharted 2 to this day looks amazing and most importantly plays great too. I think the true winners are the core gamers who are able to put childish fan-boy rubbish aside and embrace being a true gamer who owns and games on all platforms! or at the very least if not as fortunate to buy all platforms, still remains objective and appreciates that every game and platform have their pro's and con's.
Considering Halo 5 isn't going to be released until after NEXT e3, Uncharted. Why even show games that won't ship until fall 2015???
Neither, Wii U Zelda will Win!!!
It depends on your definition of "winning". Uncharted takes on awards like no other and typically raises the bar on visuals and entertaining story telling. Halo has a massive following with the sales to back it up with a storyline/universe that many fans love and can't wait to get back into. Halo games are fun and their online multiplayer communities last for yeeears. With Bungie now tied up with Destiny it will be interesting to see where MS takes Halo and if it can still live up to its predecessors.
Why not both. As a gamer, I want both to win. Both will be amazing!!!
Both hopefully, I'm really looking forward to playing them, after recently playing Uncharted 3 I'm now a big fan if both. 2 great examples of different genres
Both maybe? I don't know why there has to be a winner since they're both great games...not everything has to be a competition.
Great games, in two different genres no less.
Bubbles for "well said". We need more like you around here.
You got one from me for the same reason. Balance should be encouraged. The one I'm most anticipating is Uncharted. While I think Guardians will be great and do love FPS games, lately TPS games get me more excited. Also, well...next gen Naughty Dog? Yes please.
Looking forward to this. Have a ps4 but new crackdown or halo 5 and the Xbox 1 will be mine. On yes, she will be mine.
Very true. Both can be a superb experience for their individual genres.
It amuses me greatly when people say it's a war, and declare someone as a winner... Both franchises, games, consoles, companies etc co-exist, and will for a very long time...
I guess, in their own way, they're going to win. Both of them.
I would imagine PS4 fans will say Uncharted no matter what, and XB1 fans will say Halo no matter what! But I'm just guessing!! I suspect the majority of US media will claim MS won E3, and the rest of the world will say Sony edged it. I would think we might see about a million opinion pieces from people who were not even at E3 who will claim either MS, Sony, or maybe even Nintendo won. But as I say... Just guessing!! :)
Nah, Oculus is going to win e3 this year. Exclusive games, a release date, and an unveiling of the final first gen consumer model! If that doesn't happen, then Sony wins.... no matter what!
Well I wouldn't say either wins but still I'm looking forward to Oculus. Everybody will have a different winner this year and no website or poll can dictate which show was better based on there opinion.
You can't really 'win' E3, you can have a bad E3 and a good E3 but you don't win E3.
If E3 2014 is about two games that might ship in fall 2015 then neither will win. E3 2014 should be about games slated for 2014. Not 2015. Gamers deserve focus to be on the selection of games that they will have access to this year, not vaporware. Especially in a technology based industry where delays are rampant (Ex. last guardian, killzone 2, Alan wake, too human, drive club, watch dogs etc). Star gazing to 2015 or beyond is lame and shows that the consoles were shipped too early by at east 1-2 years. Why don't they have enough content to fill E3 2014 with games of the same year? Gamers need to start holding console vendors accountable for shipping consoles too early and not having enough quality content to fill a 1.5 hour show. Think about the gamers that bought a ps4 just for drive club last year. Or back in 2008 saw the demo of last guardian and bought a ps3 right after. The console vendors are screwing customers by talking about games that are in the future with no firm ship date. Think about it. If a content platform is selling you on content for 2015 what is your reason to buy the content platform this year? Why not wait Until 2015 when there might even be a price drop?
The console industry has always been about teasing what's coming in the future. If we didn't have the teasers we wouldn't have anything to get excited for. I understand some of the frustration with the delays but I would rather have a delay than a game they fix as they go. Game devs are damned if they do damned if they don't. If they put a busted game out it hurts there rep and gamers blast them. If they delay a game for any reason gamers blast them. I just can't wait for e3 to see what's coming down the pipeline!
Without bungie halo nothing just as uncharted is if without naughty dog. Destiney and uncharted will be big winners
Obviously you didn't play Halo 4 which was a great game.
The story was great........ Best story in the halo series
Loved Halo 4 almost as much as Combat evolved. My only complaint was Halos theme music not being added to the game.
yuck, if those are the only options to "win" then we all "lose"
If Halo 5s mutiplayer is anything like halo 2 or 3, uncharted will be irrelevant to me.
After Halo 4, 343i have a lot to prove with Halo 5's mp if they want to get me even remotely interested. If they reveal Halo 5 this E3 and talk about the MP, the first piece of information they should announce is that they are removing the sprint button.
Another Halo? Another Uncharted? These franchises have a great history of releasing stellar installments, but sorry, the e3 2014 win is going to The Division.., again.
Both. More games for me both good franchises
Depends on your preference I'm more of a Halo guy but I'm more interested in Quantum Break right now. But if Shenmue is announced then every other game becomes irrelevant to me
Simple. Halo for Halo fans. Uncharted for Uncharted fans.
Lmfao! Bubbles incoming.
Dude, i dont care Halo and Uncharted. I wait AC5 and The Witcher 3.
Saw the Witcher dev team mini press conference today, and it seemed to me that the team is already so confident that they are about to release a gem of a game. They definitely piqued my interest. Can't wait to see more at E3.
They are both winners in my book...
both should be great games. c'mon.
Why not both? If your PlayStation only Uncharted wins, Xbox only Halo wins Own both? You'll most likely get both.
They are both great games and it's hard to put the two up against each other, but one of the only things we have to go on is the history of awards of the games and uncharted holds that crown. My vote would be uncharted
Neither of them.
Compare two completely different games is hard.. I love Halo and Uncharted but I'd say Uncharted for story because it's brilliant, Halo for multiplayer as always.
Halo. While the Uncharted will likely feature actual in game footage - 'cause that's how a Naughty Dog do - the pure CG Halo trailer while get the most attention for "potential" game play features.
"potential" yeah like Halo underdelivers There are few games that include so many incredible options in one package: MP Co-op campaign single campaign forge eposiodic content etc...
