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.
What is that Twitt from the XBone fanboy "CEO KAZ HIRAI" at 5:58am june 8 doing in that article, Kotaku?
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
Sony's pushing tv, vr, and disconnected executives. Wow sounds like MS's 2013 Conference that Sony themselves made fun of MS for...
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 http://www.engadget.com/201...
@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.
@LoveOfTheGame 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.
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.
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!
@inveni0 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!
AGREED, 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. http://en.wikipedia.org/wik... 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.
Docknoss, I kindly refer you to ms's 2013 e3 conference made easy: http://m.youtube.com/watch?... 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.
Even Jack Trenton gave Microsofts conference an A after it was over in the spike interview.
Three of Kotaku's main 'journalists' slate everything Sony said or showed.
In case anyone missed it: http://youtu.be/Ynqs4TxilTw @ 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
Agreed, it was awful.
Very disappointed, no Gran Turismo no last Guardian no God of War no MotorStorm no The Agent, joke...
so you run off what sony didnt have...but how was ms any better? no gears...no quantum.. no ryse 2..no halo 5 demo...mostly all were cg movies... both had good shows..one had more content and surprises.
It wasnt awful, but by god it could have been so much better if they had less talk
they both had good conferences, but sony got it with first at no mans sky, and bloodborne imo.
"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.
No mans sky looks great, not exactly sure I agree that it decided E3 when seems multiplat
Everything about it was amazing except that one bit about TV, that shouldn't have been there.
You mean playstation TV or the part about powers?
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)
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.
I think SOny should have explained to the audience that the Playstation TV is really the Vita that plugs into our TV lol.
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?
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.
Perfect description of Sony's conference. Bubble up!
Cut out Layden and it was an A+.
Yeah - but I guess they kind of had to introduce him...
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?
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)
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-
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.
Yeah I thought both ms/Sony did well. Nothing super surprising but both had games that the gamers want. Hope nin does well today.
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.
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.
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.
Sony announced game after game, Microsoft showed us what we already knew about and a lot of CGI.
I'm starting to think that whole t.v. part was some inside jab to MS about how their last E3 went when they did the same thing and their fans burned the expo to the ground.
If that's the case then someone should inform Sony that brevity is the soul of wit. The jab about the camera...brief. The jab about game sharing in FarCry...brief The jab about importing 360 GTA5 data....brief The jab about TV...overly long and boring The first three had people in the theater give a little laugh because of the implication. The last one had people annoyed and pissed it was going on so long.
"brevity is the soul of wit" One quote i would have never expected from N4G.Bravo good sir. & I think the over long & Boring part would BE the joke. If it were to be brief, there would be no joke. & yes i do understand that its not actually a joke.
I agree, I found it kind of immature the way Sony kept on reiterating it. They already did it last year no need to do it again.
I enjoyed it, still a lot of first party games not shown though, looking at Gamescom now
Gamescom and TGS. I really want to know more of Deep Down, Lily Bergamo, new RPG from Falcom & NIS, TLG (hopefully), Gravity Rush 2, and new IP from Japan Studio.
Bloodborne was the shit! Wow im so excited to learn more about it
I enjoyed it, the games they shown were great and the reveal trailers (especially dead island) really stood out. The middle was bad though made even worse by the new guy who spoke so slowly that it made all the stuff we didn't really care about drag on far longer than necessary.
at the point where they showed the TV stuff and series was pretty boring ...why damn Sony wastes resources for idiotic shows and series which nobody watches and they are US exclusives???? .. the rest of the show was good , although with no surprises like MS
For me, Sony won E3 because of Bloodborne.
is that PS4 exclusive? my friggin internet was stuttering in parts of that I missed it. I know From Software is doing it....
Yes, it's PS4 exclusive. SCE and Japan Studio name came up before From Soft name showed up. You can watch the trailer again if you missed it http://www.youtube.com/watc...
Yep it's exclusive, Sony registered the "Bloodborne" trademark a week or so ago and it's being developed in tandem with SCE and Japan Studio.
Yes it is only on the PS4. Japan Studio is making it so you know it will never be on the Xbone. If you want to play Bloodbourne you better have a PS4.
maybe if they showed actually gameplay..CG trailers are a bit disappointing.
There was a small gameplay leak a few days ago but Miyazaki and From Software are making it, I don't need to see anything to know I will be buying it day one.
Not only disappointing but maddening. Why do I need to see 10 minutes of cutscene and NO gameplay? It is a GAME right? Then show - the GAME! It is so simple and obvious, are these guys imbeciles? You would think they would know we hate that kind of stuff.
Yes, the part with the TV show and movie was meh. But Sony showed 36 games, while MS showed 26. Besides, Sony's presser was more entertaining (Tim Schafer FTW). MS was just like, "here, a game. and, here's the next game". And the multiplat footages were more revealing and interesting. And those unannounced titles, oh boy! Let it Die, LittleBigPlanet 3, Dead Island 2!!! A- (MS gets a B).
Sony also revealed White ps4 Ps vita tv (for eu & us) Ps now project Morpheus on top of all these EXCLUSIVE games! The order 1887, uncharted 4 , Magicka 2 , h1z1, bloodbourne , let it die , ratchet and clank , little big planet 3 , Kingdom Under Fire 2 , planetside 2 , Grim Fandango , the last of us remastered , Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number , The Talos Principle , Entwined , Not a Hero , Everquest: next , ABZU , inFAMOUS: First Light (It's standalone)
Was hoping for a bit of h1z1 but no man's sky and bloodbourne won the day
I have a PS4 and it more than satisfied me. With titles like The Order, Uncharted 4, Little Big Planet 3, Entwined, Destiny, BloodBorn, ABZU, No Man's Sky, Far Cry 4, Batman Arkham Knight, Infamous DLC, etc. I don't see how anyone came away disappointed. Like others already said, the one missing title that I thought was really weird was Driveclub. I mean come on Sony! With no next gen racer on your console, how in this world could you not give some time to Driveclub?? I would have gladly taken a demonstration of that game over the stupid comic book movie.
Driveclub is on the show floor, I get why they did not show it but they should have mentioned it though, same with KZ:shadowfall coop dlc.
I think it was solid
The only gripe I had with it really was that they went on too long about 'Powers'
The PS TV was only brief, they made a few smart moves by revealing GTAV and all the exclusive contents and No Mans Sky being a timed exclusives are fairly big
MS showed off some good stuff too, but it just had a huge emphasis on dude bro multiplayer stuff, almost everything showed was multiplayer this multiplayer that.
MS 1st party: Phantom Dust, Halo, fable Legends, Sunset Overdrive, Scalebound, Horizon 2 and 2 arcade games So thats alone 8 games which are xbox only games. + All the great multiplayer stuff with exclusive content. MS was all about games. Sony was more about Indi games and TV and Little Big Planet 2.5
Love how you conveniently leave out all the indie games MS is presenting and all the games Sony revealed
LBP 2.5 lol really? What does that make the Halo collection then?
I wasn't even bashing MS conference, I just thought it was worse than sony's.
You left out Crackdown too....and....you're a dunce. I thought both conferences left me feeling a little empty for this year...there was nothing coming this year that made me yell "GOTTA HAVE IT" we're getting HD remixes and 3rd party sequels with a splash of Indies....I dont know about you people but I spent upwards towards $1K in new tech, I want to be WOWED.....I hope Nintendo has something up their sleeve, this is theirs for the taking I think....
So easy to spot fanboy trolls. They do list wars but never give full lists out of pure fear 😨 So sad. Just list all games from both and discuss without using the typical "oh but none of those games appeal to me" If you aren't a gamer just move on
