Analyst: Xbox 360 Best of Show at E3

This week's E3 Media and Business Summit in Los Angeles gave each major console maker -- Sony, Microsoft and Nintendo -- the chance to showcase the future of their platforms.

Microsoft added social functions and new entertainment options to the Xbox 360 Latest News about Xbox 360, Sony trumpeted a video store and an upcoming price cut for the PlayStation 3 Latest News about PlayStation 3, and Nintendo gave gamers a glimpse of a new controller add-on and upcoming games like "Wii Sports Resort."

However, if any of the Big 3 could be said to have "won" E3 this year, then Microsoft takes the top prize, according Mike Goodman, director of digital entertainment for the Yankee Group.

According to an American website that's probably run by Microsoft lol. Sony announced new exclusive games. Microsoft didn't. That's all that matters. Their silly little "Avatars" aren't really anything special.

chaosatom3715d ago (Edited 3715d ago )

easily.

I know that Sony didn't specically show each one, but they had them on E3 for people to try out.

So judging a company by just the conference is totally ignoring the simple fact, that their were games for people to play.

truth for gamers3715d ago

You can play games and win prizes with the "little avatars", Gears of war 2 was the best game of the entire E3 and FFXIII sealed it for MS.

callahan093715d ago (Edited 3715d ago )

This analyst claims Sony had nothing new. That's rubbish. What about Resistance Retribution, Fat Princess, Rag-Doll Kung-Fu, MAG, etc.? All those titles there, nobody had the slightest clue about their existence prior to E3.

AlienGorilla3715d ago

Am i going to HAVE to switch to the new interface or is there an option between the two.

It's a little weird that so many years into it's life cycle MS abandons the interface for a completely new look. It makes me wonder if they thought they made the right design. I think they did. I'm perfectly fine with the "Blades" interface.

It would be weird if in a year Sony completely gets rid of the XMB and incorporates a new User Interface. It's just baffling.

Maybe they just needed an overhaul to push those retarded avatars on the user base.

StayHigh3715d ago

Heavy Rain and Team ICO game was being showed behind close door to at E3..

Microsoft didnt announce any new games for next that will keep the 360 fans happy..Instead they stole a excusive that will come out in 2010 or 2001..thats a still long way to go..

Monchichi0253715d ago

It's cool and all that you guys think Sony did better, obviously there announcements excited you more! But just know that the common perception among everyone else, including professional analyst is that MS won.

It is being said by almost EVERY analyst and on all polls on the web. And it's not evens close in the polls. It's like 66% MS and 28% Sony.

So argue all you want, but FACTS ARE FACTS. Want to disagree, please provide data to back up the argument, not just your bias opinion please!

AlienGorilla3715d ago (Edited 3715d ago )

Why are people even arguing who had the "Cooler" press conference.
You guys are so lame.

Why can't we just all look forward to all the great games coming out for both 360 and PS3.....and i'm sure the Wii too........maybe.

BTW. No one answered my question from earlier. ^
Am i going HAVE to make the switch to the new User Interface, or can i stick with the blades if i don't like the Vista/Media Center/Gay Avatar User Interface?

callahan093715d ago

You anonymous gamers are so silly hitting that disagree button whenever you feel like it. Look above at my previous comment. So far, 8 disagrees? What's to disagree with? All I did was mention the "new" things that Sony displayed. Factual information, period. Get over yourselves with the baseless disagrees.

Then again, I'm also just another one of these silly little gamers who actually takes the time to defend my silly little statements about videogames.

cyclindk3715d ago

"Ahhh, the Sony Defense team!

A professional analyst? You think he went to school and got a degree in "analyzing" video expos? And "facts are facts?" Are you on crack or are you being influenced by some neuro-degenerative psychotropic substances, because you'd pretty much have to be in order to make a statement like this...they are opinions, polls based on opinions don't make them factual...nor do they factually represent anything other than the opinions of individuals and as we are all very well aware most individuals are morons like yourself. :)

so if the analyst favored sony, i bet we wouldn't be reading what you just wrote. denial is not just a river in egypt kay?

StephanieBBB3715d ago (Edited 3715d ago )

First of all it wasn't an XBOX360 show it was the Microsoft conference. (still you might think that it was purely an Xbox360 show)

Second, Microsoft showed multiplatforms to fill up the time on stage and Sony could have done exactly the same but they had EXCLUSIVES instead which are related only to thier console and if I were calling the shots I would not let anyone show multiplatforms except for the developers who made them. I would concider it cheating.

Third, Microsoft had no big announcement or ground breaking news except for FFXII coming to the Xbox360 and thats also a multiplatform that they were advertising. Overall thier conference was dull and just full of buissness numbers which can make anyone except for the microsoft stockbrokers and xbox-fanboys sleepy.

What was it that made the conference so great?
- The video deal with Netflix? It will just force you to a gold membership and a Netflix monthly pay of 10 dollars extra.
- Avatars? Anyone that has eye's know that it's a ripoff of the Wii avatars. I thought more of you fanboys would be angry than thinking it was a good idea. You have spent money on the gamecard pictures and now thier worthless? I sertenly would be furious if I got slaped in the face like that.
- A full latitute of appealing products? No Xbox360 was in full focus, nothing on the PC front whatsoever.
- Any juicy exclusive announcements of xbox360 games for the future? Nope, No new games for 09 and not many playable exclusives at E3 either.

Are you focking kidding me???

EDIT: The majority of you are saying that Sony had a good conference but MS had the edge, can you give an example of what they did to deserve 1st place?

thebudgetgamer3714d ago

when those analyst said ps3 is turning it around and quicky catching the 360 you all say they dont know what they are talking about now that its pro 360 its suddenly the gospel make up your minds btw what exactly do those avatars do?

GarandShooter3714d ago

'so if the analyst favored sony, i bet we wouldn't be reading what you just wrote. denial is not just a river in egypt kay? '

No, it would be some X-only saying it and you'd be agreeing with him wholeheartedly.

Spin it, slice it , dice it all you want. Polls and analysts represent opinions, nothing more. If you can find some method of quantitative scientific analysis that proves either side won, I'm all ears.

thebudgetgamer3714d ago

i realy dont go for those analyst predictions im just saying you cant have it both ways. im a gamer i play what i like it doesnt matter who makes it. and i dont like blind fanboy zelots no matter what company they root for

If you call stealing an accomplishment.

Bladestar3715d ago

funny you say, "accomplishment".. that's what Sony was going to call the xbox 360 achievement ripoff before they decided to call it Trophies...

I think right about now people should stop talking about "stealing" since all companies copy each other ideas... and it's all about delivering what gamers ask the hardware manufacturers to provide...

Veryangryxbot3715d ago

severely out of touch with reality.

Sony's presentation was much more slick and won over the publics hearts.

The second day, KZ2 ripped E3 apart.

GiantEnemyCrab3715d ago (Edited 3715d ago )

"funny you say, "accomplishment"

That comment is so full of win! pwned!

Sony has ripped off more than a clepto for the PS3 and PSN. All companies do it and I don't think that will change.

Anyway, on the article of course they got Best of Show. It was the best.

Bzone243715d ago

And people saying that Microsoft didn't win E3 are either droids or mentally challenged. Or in your case veryangry, both.

juuken3715d ago

Bladestar, Crab, and Bzone.

...What made Microsoft's show the best? Please do summarize it in one paragraph because the only thing I saw that was kind of interesting was the whole Netflix thing. Other than that, the new interface and the avatars reminded me way too much of Sony and Nintendo's ideas.

Fable wasn't too appealing, Gears 2 was okay but didn't *wow* me, and the rest of the games they mentioned were multi-platform. And now that I think about it, that announcement of FFXIII going multi-platform isn't so bad afterall because Microsoft are so stupid that they don't realize what FF means in Japan. If they were smart, they would try to get Square to release it to 360 owners in Japan so they could get some kind of edge.

But they're idiots so...

juuken3715d ago (Edited 3715d ago )

Well gee, I guess bots can't summarize these days. All they can do is slam the disagree button.

Failure at it's best.

Bzone...that's not a summary.

You fail, try again.

Oh bloody noes, it's going to the 360. That doesn't mean jack sh*t because Square is finishing the PS3 version first. You idiots get a port, which is why I'm no longer upset. Microsoft will continue wearing their money out buying third party exclusives while PS3 owners enjoy 1st party exclusives. Please do have fun with your port...you better pray Square finds a way to compress the data for the game.

I said provide an entire one paragraph summary of why MS won E3.

ALL ABOARD THE FAIL TRAIN!

Bzone243715d ago

Well junken, I can do it in the following sentence.

FF XIII going to the 360 made all the ps3 droids cry.

It was really fun watching you moan and cry the rest of the day about it.

GMR_PR3715d ago

@ Bzone24

lol, yeap she's always crying like a little baby she is. OMG PS3 this PS3 that, such a fanboy.

AngryBot3715d ago

Take a look around you, bots. Not just on this site. But on sites like GT, Gamespot, IGN, just go to school and talk with people during lunch, during breaks, in clubhouses, bars etc.

The hottest games being talked about right now, are ALL SONY games: LBP, KZ2, MAG, GOD3, R2.

Noone is even talking about 360 games. So who won E3? Sony. By a frikkin MILE.

Every poll on the internet asking this question, shows Sony winning by a MILE. So who won the public? Sony.

PS3 already had the momentum but looks like its going to continue for quite a long time. Hahaha.

karlostomy3714d ago (Edited 3714d ago )

MS won E3 because of a simple announcement: FFXIII

If you recall, you posted several times in exasperation:
- how betrayed you felt
- how shocked you were
- how disappointed you were that SOny couldn't keep this one

In summary, you were waaaaaaaaaaaaahing your brains out girlfriend.

THAT is why MS won E3.

Suck it up princess

Im sorry but all Microsoft has was one big projector! SONY had one really cool looking set... Wonder what gives?

Rob0g0rilla3715d ago (Edited 3715d ago )

Sony had the best show again. The games they showed & announced were more appealing to me. The inFamous & KillZone 2 trailers were a real surprise. The only surprise from Microsoft was them announcing Final Fantasy XIII for their system. The avatars looked like crap and I wasn't so happy with the new layout but I'm glad I can put my 120gbs to use now. The new guide menu is a lot better too.

Drekken3715d ago

Why is Sony the only one being talked about??

This ANALyst is wrong!
