The Internet Reacts To Sony's E3 Presentation

Here's some of what people have to say about Sony's E3 presentation, be it on the company, the PS4, or any of the games showcased tonight.

The story is too old to be commented.

What is that Twitt from the XBone fanboy "CEO KAZ HIRAI" at 5:58am june 8 doing in that article, Kotaku?

Abash1413d ago

Sony and Microsoft both did equally well in my view, but I also felt both needed to have announcements that were a bit bigger.

I have to say though the announcement of LittleBigPlanet 3 coming exclusively to PlayStation 4... and ready for THIS November..... that just made me burst with excitement.

It's easily my most anticipated release this year now, was not expecting Sony to get LBP3 on the PS4 this soon

Docknoss1413d ago

Sony's pushing tv, vr, and disconnected executives. Wow sounds like MS's 2013 Conference that Sony themselves made fun of MS for...

djplonker1413d ago (Edited 1413d ago )

One tv show

One movie

Hardly the same as when Microsoft tried to kill offline play and used games and was all tv and movies...(halo, nfl , quantum leap , raving rabids) Funny how you dont remember how many microsoft showed off last year...

Hey xbox fanboys you remember this concept XD

LoveOfTheGame1413d ago

@two above

Did you guys even watch E3 last year? MS conference had games, then some more games, and followed up with(wait for it) games.

Boody-Bandit1413d ago


Most of which were multiplat and most of them will look and possibly run better on the PS4.

That's the problem for MS this generation. They can't rely on the multiplat excuse this time around. They have to rely heavily on exclusives and IMHO non bias opinion, Sony has a significant edge on them in that area.

inveni01413d ago (Edited 1413d ago )

I love Sony's games. And they did bore me a little in the middle. But they also presented a lot of things I'm excited for. What really impressed me, however, was Microsoft's collection of exclusives. They have a few that actually have me considering an Xbox One after the next price drop. They just don't have the mature titles I'm looking for in order to make the Xbox a must-have right at this moment. But they've definitely given the impression that they're turning tide and coming back to a position in which they'll catch my eye.

EDIT: And I'm seriously pumped for next year's Uncharted 4 gameplay reveal. After seeing so many beautiful games this year, I found myself wondering how Naughty Dog could still be crowned graphics king on console…and then they showed Drake and became graphics king on ALL platforms. Super impressed.

SolidStoner1413d ago

I liked it, need to get that white PS4 with Destiny!.. I just want to know where are all those games Sony talked about last year @ E3.. I was pumped to see like game after game.. and I saw really everything I already knew... also no GT7 stuff and no new mature exclusives..

Im looking forward for Uncharted 4, Last of us, GTA5, that new POP song gang Battlefield shooter (still must be tons of hardcore battlefield style fun..) all other games looked good too.. I just expected twice as much BIG games!

UltraNova1413d ago


First of all dont hold your breath...We dont know if U4 will end up looking like that.. Maybe we've seen in game cinematics where everything is pumped up a little...

However its Naughty Dog were are talking about here, if anything these guys can deliver! We'll see.

PS: When I watched the trailer yesterday I turned to my right, where my pc tower is and looked at my exposed 290x gpu, thinking godamn it imagine if ND had you to make UC4 with! Yes I know its weird.

Cant wait for this!

LonDonE1413d ago

on topic, WHERE THE F ARE THE GAMES????? i swear Sony and Microsoft promised like 10 or so exclusives in the first year of which a few would be new i.p's? i cant remember the exact quotes but i was under the impression the first year of both consoles would be filled with games? LMAO

2014 is pretty baron, without third party games the new consoles wouldn't have that much to play! granted near the end of the year we have some heavy hitters, but man 2014 is a massive disappointment!

Sony had that stupid guy who is a nobody talking for ages, are they seriously going to follow up the legendary uncle jack with that smuck? the guy was exactly like an MS employee!
nothing he said came across sincere, and i just couldn't connect with him like i do with shu, tretton, and house and pretty much everyone at Sony!

Any one who denies that MS conference was better is a liar! it was by far allot better and featured game play more longer on average then Sony! Sony needed to show allot more of the order etc. Granted the PS4 is still selling like gang busters so maybe that's why they are a little laid back.

Seriously at the moment i play my wii u and Xbox one ALLOT MORE THEN MY PS4!!!!
and it annoys the hell out of me!
Even Nintendo's conference was boring for me, while a improvement over last year and it was nice to see more of the secretive Nintendo teams who make those games we love.
Zelda looked awesome but again i would have much more preferred the twilight princess art style like the tech demo but regardless it looked MIND BLOWING!!!! but no metroid and the so called starfox announcement even though nintendo claim they have been making it for years why then is there is no game play to show??? WTF?

No i think clearly MS won EASILY!! that advanced warfare game play looked allot like crysis 2 but regardless looked pretty epic!
But i did love Sony content first on playstation stuff, and the far cry 4 game play and the play with your friends without owning the far cry 4 game was a epic move!!!
Either way i think E3 2014 was over hyped, as a seasoned gamer i had a feeling this year wouldn't have that many first party exclusives for MS and Sony! looks like i will be playing most games this year on my PC and WiiU!
Halo collection does look epic!

Brutallyhonest- "Most of which were multiplat and most of them will look and possibly run better on the PS4."

PC you mean, and by the way watch dogs on ps4 was a joke. hardly 1080p and barely 30 fps.

Brutallyhonest- "That's the problem for MS this generation. They can't rely on the multiplat excuse this time around."

SONY IS RELYING MORE ON MULTIPLATFORMS, TRUTH, they made the console easier to develop for and used PC hardware to aim for better 3rd party development.

Brutallyhonest- "They have to rely heavily on exclusives and IMHO non bias opinion, Sony has a significant edge on them in that area."

PS4 has way less major games coming this year, FACT.

Prime1571413d ago (Edited 1413d ago )

Docknoss, I kindly refer you to ms's 2013 e3 conference made easy:

And if you're talking about the PlayStation tv (or more aptly named, "vita tv" in Japan) as Sony doing the same as MS did, then I think you should put some effort into researching what the pstv actually is.

Gamerbynight1413d ago

Even Jack Trenton gave Microsofts conference an A after it was over in the spike interview.

Mr Pumblechook1412d ago

Three of Kotaku's main 'journalists' slate everything Sony said or showed.

ShinMaster1412d ago

In case anyone missed it:

@ DevilOgreFish

Watch Dogs wasn't even well optimized on PC nor did it look as good as the first gameplay demo. Same with Far Cry 3, not that I remember.

Also, making the PS4 more accessible to everyone is NOT THE SAME THING as "relying" on third-party. Exclusives are what make a difference between consoles. Besides, everyone needs third-party support anyway.

Count the number of multiplatform games shown at Microsoft's conference vs Sony's.

Lmao Sony show was zzzzzzzżz and -1

DoctorXpro1413d ago

Very disappointed, no Gran Turismo no last Guardian no God of War no MotorStorm no The Agent, joke...

Kingthrash3601413d ago (Edited 1413d ago )

so you run off what sony didnt have...but how was ms any better?
no quantum.. no ryse halo 5 demo...mostly all were cg movies...
both had good had more content and surprises.

andibandit1412d ago

It wasnt awful, but by god it could have been so much better if they had less talk

HaveAsandwich1413d ago

they both had good conferences, but sony got it with first at no mans sky, and bloodborne imo.

SilentNegotiator1413d ago

"it's crazy: no man's sky is what I want to see out of triple-A games, and it's being made by a tiny indie studio"

I couldn't agree anymore with this guy's twitter post.

andibandit1412d ago (Edited 1412d ago )

No mans sky looks great, not exactly sure I agree that it decided E3 when seems multiplat

Applejack1413d ago

Everything about it was amazing except that one bit about TV, that shouldn't have been there.

MasterCornholio1413d ago

You mean playstation TV or the part about powers?

jackanderson19851413d ago

all of it really... could have announced them later rather than lay down price points and explain that PS Now is seemingly never coming to Europe ( I know it's 2015 but would have been nice to have a mention at least)

PsylentKiller1413d ago

Powers should have not been announced at that time. No one cares. It would have been better presented at another time. The Playstation TV I thought was a great time to show it off. "Hey, you don't have to buy two PS4's. You can just stream to whatever TV you want. You can even connect directly to PS Now. "

I think PS TV sales are gonna shoot through the roof. But the reaction to it from the crowd sucked. Come to think of it, the reaction the crowd had to everything, MS or PS, sucked. I thought both had a great presentations.

DarkHeroZX1413d ago

I think SOny should have explained to the audience that the Playstation TV is really the Vita that plugs into our TV lol.

Prime1571413d ago

I think he means powers... I think that is the point that Sony gets most scrutiny over. Yes, I pulled out my phone while he talked about his show.

But the announcement of vita tv coming to the west was what made me happy. 100$ to play (most - without swipe) vita games, stream my ps4, and more?

ShinMaster1412d ago

PlayStation TV has more to do with gaming than actual TV.

It plays PS Vita, PSP and PS One games and Remote Plays PS4 games as well.

Great start, great end, meh middle.

KinjoTakemura1413d ago (Edited 1413d ago )

Perfect description of Sony's conference. Bubble up!

Back-to-Back1413d ago

Cut out Layden and it was an A+.

DarkLord10031413d ago

Yeah - but I guess they kind of had to introduce him...

VforVideogames1413d ago (Edited 1413d ago )

ill give Sony a B- overall, and Microsoft a B+ overall. by the way was it me or the crowd over react on Sony conference?

Mikefizzled1412d ago (Edited 1412d ago )

I've seen several give the inverse. Sony was criticised for overly long demonstrations, too much time on TV, and Layden. Microsoft criticised for too many CG trailers, too little detail on CG announcements and moderately safe announcements. (After they were all spoilt by NTkernel 6 months prior)

No_Limit1413d ago (Edited 1413d ago )

I conference was just OK IMO. The begining was slow then picked up a bit and the ending was good. But the 30 minutes of TV talk, Playstation TV, Powers, and movie trailer really is something that I don't think is needed and could have been cut away and make it a 1.5 hour show.

No Man's Sky was the highlight of the show for me.

I'll give it a B-

Jeff2571413d ago

The movie trailer I liked because it showed more footage than what we have seen so far. Powers however needed at least a trailer. It would have done a lot better than just talking about it.

BX811413d ago

Yeah I thought both ms/Sony did well. Nothing super surprising but both had games that the gamers want. Hope nin does well today.

maddskull1413d ago

it was 15 minutes of tv talking not 30 minutes and they didnt only show tv stuff the introduced youtube and vita tv and that new show looks exciting.

Fishy Fingers1413d ago (Edited 1413d ago )

Was alright. Like all pressers, you usually come away thinking "meh..." when you follow gaming as closely as the majority of us.

But like any E3, it's just nice to have a bunch of new games/media to troll through from all the systems/publishers.

LightofDarkness1413d ago

Agreed, but this felt more like a classic MS presser than the kinds of showings Sony has had over the last few years. They can't all be like last year, but there was just a paucity of content at this one. MS actually had a rather good showing for once, it was just game after game, and even focused on what was happening this year first and foremost. Sony didn't seem to have a compelling line-up to see the year out, which was worrisome. I'm still not sold on the Xbox One but it's getting close. I sensed a touch of complacency on Sony's part, and I don't think this was the time for that. I certainly hope we don't see a return to the over-confidence of yesteryear.

Bennibop1413d ago

Sony announced game after game, Microsoft showed us what we already knew about and a lot of CGI.
