Xbox's Phil Spencer congratulates Shuhei Yoshida on The Last Guardian announcement

Xbox Head Phil Spencer congratulates his Sony counterpart Shuhei Yoshida on the big announcement of The Last Guardian.

The story is too old to be commented.
DigitalRaptor1099d ago

HOLY SH-----

Am I dreaming right now?

Am I DREAMINNGGGGGG? I'm going to wake up now?

Am I going to wake up?

The Last Guardian, Final Fantasy VII Remake, Shenmue III?

Sony has Already WON. They freaking won.

But then we have Horizon, Dreams as new IPs......

Sony has won.

Kingthrash3601099d ago

Should be giving congrats to the entire conferance...they killing it right now....surprising even the grumpy cat....just awsome.

mikeslemonade1099d ago

lol he needs to watch the entire conference. Sony didn't have just have one haymaker. They had about 8 haymakers.

Lightning Mr Bubbles1099d ago (Edited 1099d ago )

Yeah, PS4's conference seems to be killing the XBOX One's conference. I'm still trying to realize what the heck is going on.

Usually E3 never lives up, all the talk about someone killing someone else is never true, but this time Playstation is delivering pretty good.

And it seems lots of disagrees are coming for people praising PS4, that's weird.

EDIT:

I already got 4 disagrees here just for saying this. And my comment asking about what Final Fantasy 7 remake coming first to PS4 means, if it's timed exclusive or what. And that comment got marked for being immature. What the heck is going on?

kingdom181099d ago

Really both MS and Sony's conference's were stellar imo!

Mr Pumblechook1099d ago

Cool. It's great that Phil Spencer is open about watching the Sony conference.

1099d ago
MasterCornholio1099d ago (Edited 1099d ago )

Well thats true. I mean Sony congratulated Microsoft on their whole conference. Is Phil saying that The Last Guardian is the only thing worth congratulating at Sonys conference?

Anyways im sure that deep down he knows that Sony had a good conference. Hes just trying to be modest which is fine in my opinion.

patsrule3161098d ago

@Cornholio, Spencer tweeted the congratulations shortly after the announcement and well before the show was over. He wasn't taking a passive aggressive shot at the rest of the show, but was just talking about Last Guardian.

Pardon, but it needs to be said:

I LOVE COMPETITION!

funkybudda1099d ago

Seriously, WHAT competition? Xbox One? Nah, not even close.

Christopher1099d ago

Yeah, okay funkybudda. Sony is just running this all their own... *rolls eyes*

showtimefolks1099d ago

Man I haven't seen Sony been this aggressive in a long time. Sony won e3 for sure 110%

1099d ago
showtimefolks1099d ago

I didn't know e3 was about release dates? I thought it was about showing great games

Call of duty
mgs 5
uncharted trilogy
star wars
fallout 4

Yeh ps4 has no games come fall 2014.

TheNew11099d ago

You just listed straight up 3rd party games except uncharted.

Notramagama1099d ago

@TheNews1 just let them have the moment... it'll set in in the fall

rainslacker1099d ago

You mean this fall where 4 of the 5 games that showtime listed can be played on PS4?

I don't get this no games argument. I mean, that's what this whole 3rd/1st party argument really boils down to isn't it?

I have 17 games pre-ordered for releases that come out before the end of the year for the PS4 and Vita alone(10 and 7 respectively). Only 2 of the games showtime listed actually even make it to my list. I'd imagine this fall, most people will be able to find enough games to satisfy their needs/wants regardless of what system they own.

At what point am I not going to have any games to play? Heck, I'll be lucky to have enough time to play half of the ones I'm getting. So..what exactly is going to settle in for me?

UltraNova1099d ago

Hmm it seems that some people truly believe that only exclusives will be released from now on till the end of the year...

Weird...

Phil, like most of us, just wants to play it and he was, like many of us, pleasantly surprised by the gameplay. Guess he'll have to buy a ps4 if he doesn't secretly own one.

InTheLab1099d ago

No secret. Phil owns them all. I didn't disagree btw...

TheRedButterfly1099d ago

Final Fantasy VII remake = Multiplat
Shenmue III = Multiplat (if it makes funding goals)

Horizon looked good though. Dreams looked... different.

The 'win' is a game that has been in development hell since 2007 finally having a release window -- that being 1.5 years from now.

Congrats on the COD DLC Sony. Odd that you're celebrating it after shitting on it for the past decade, but whatevez.

remixx1161099d ago

Lol shenmue 3 will be ps4, PC console exclusive and I'm guessing you missed the rest of it.....damn Sony and MS are not f*ckin around, I gotta go ask for a raise.

Lokoline1099d ago

Shenmue is PS4 and PC only.
Final Fantasy VII Remake is first on PS4 (and maybe PC later).

medman1099d ago (Edited 1099d ago )

Uhhh...Sony's conference was stellar, top to bottom. I enjoyed Microsoft's conference as well, but for me The Last Guardian, Uncharted, No Man's Sky, and especially Horizon Zero Dawn (wow) put Sony over the top. My jaw literally dropped when they demoed Zero Dawn...I mean, come on...that was beyond incredible. My personal game of show so far, even if we don't get it til 2016 or 2017. On a side note, some games I wanted to see more of were missing like Rime, Wild, and The Tomorrow Children, but that speaks to the incredible depth of the lineup Sony is putting together. Horizon more than made up for the omissions from this show for me. Phenomenal.

rainslacker1099d ago (Edited 1099d ago )

MS big announcement was BC....and....um...what else?

Great announcement, but do you really think that BC really compares to the most requested remake of all time actually being announced? Then probably the 2nd most requested remake also being announced in the same show. Who cares if it's multi-plat?

Timed exclusives have been thrown in Sony fan's faces since ROTTR, and even before, so now they aren't a big deal?

Timed COD DLC has been thrown in Sony fan's faces since...well since it started. Odd how now some people are saying that it's not that big of a deal.

Yes, the win was TLG. Right from the start of the show. Then everything they showed after that except for SW:BF, Destiny DLC, and some of the indie stuff, but you know what, those first two things were probably pretty exciting for people as well. Heck I was even impressed with COD game play, and I really dislike COD.

Horizon looked great. Dreams was...different I agree.

Face it. When it comes to the fan boy wars, Sony just gave their fan boys an arsenal after nuking MS entire fort. It's fan boy fodder for sure, but I find it hilarious that so many people can't see how major some of these announcements are because...oh timed exclusives...SMH.

Listen to the crowds between the two conferences. That is a pretty good indicator of how big the announcements are...unless you believe that the majority of the gaming press are Sony fans who blindly accept whatever Sony says.

Face it, many MS fan boys are going to have to start spinning a lot of their prior comments to try to wiggle out of this one. It's already happening as evidenced by many posts in this very thread.

gangsta_red1099d ago (Edited 1099d ago )

Shenmue is a kickstarter project.

FF 7 is a timed exclusive

The Last Guardian didn't really have any appeal (IMO!!).

A quick flash of Vita, with no mention at all, that pretty much signaled it's death.

And a huge amount of montages (Death From Above 1979!) that included a bunch multiplat games.

Horizon was the only new game that Sony showed that was basically new and kicked MAJOR a$$.

The rest of the conference was all multiplats and timed DLC.

This is what I hate about these big companies, they devote so much time to multiplat games and try and pass them off as their own. And in a strange twist of fate Sony is now making a huge effort in establishing this. Trying to become the new home of CoD?

It'll be interesting if CoD becomes the "awesome" game on this site now that Sony is backing it.

Sony gets a C+.

@Kenshiro
Oh yea I forgot to mention Uncharted 4, a game we all knew about. It looked good but I was never an Uncharted fan. I do like the fact that it looked like an open world environment. I think I already touched on the Last Guardian.

"You just don't like Sony. Nothing they do is *impressive* in your eyes."

Did I not just say that Horizon kicked major a$$? Hmmm... pretty sure I did.

kenshiro1001099d ago

Gee, I didn't know Uncharted 4 was a multiplat...or The Last Guardian.

You just don't like Sony. Nothing they do is *impressive* in your eyes.

JJShredder1099d ago

My ears and eyes bled when they started talking about TV services....they had the worst of Microsoft's bad practices in their conference and now fanboys and girls on Sony's side are praising it. Unbelievable.

bloodybutcher1099d ago

How about street fighter, eh? Accidentally forgotten?

Spotie1099d ago

Shenmue III: Kickstarter and still not gonna be on Xbox.

FFVII: Sorry, it's a megaton. One of the most loved games in history gets its remake debuted at the Sony presser.

The Last Guardian: Who gives a shit about your opinion? The gaming community at large wanted this game and, like Shenmue, now they have it. That is massive.

You even actually praise the TV announcement elsewhere.

Just... stop.

rainslacker1099d ago (Edited 1099d ago )

Shenmue: So?

FF7: So? Wait..is it coming to X1 or just PC after the PS4? Unless something has happened I don't know about, Sony still has publishing rights to the FF7 IP on console.

Last Gaurdian: Really? No appeal? Did you hear the crowd before they even showed the game? Did you hear them after? Were you at the E3 Experience and see people cheering? Have you not watched on the internet how many times people ask about this game? Do you not know how much Ico and SoTC are well loved titles? Adding an IMHO doesn't mean that the showing wasn't great. It may not appeal to you, but you can surely see the appeal that many people have for it.

Will agree on the Vita, rather disappointed there, but I wasn't expecting much, just kind of hopeful.

Agree on Horizon

Montages are bad? Guess they disprove the whole Sony has no game argument, so I can see why some people will think that.

Multi-plat and timed DLC...well, given how many times these arguments are used in support of Xbox, can you blame people for seeing the significance of them...particularly since they are some of the bigger multi-plats and timed DLC out there which often get used for supporting Xbox?

COD will probably still suck among people who disliked it before, but the game play was still pretty impressive, and I don't really care for FPS, and have a dislike for COD. While watching it, I actually wanted to play it, and that's pretty rare for me for a FPS. I'd imagine a COD fan would be really excited for it, and I'd imagine that those diehard COD fans will pick up a PS4 for COD for the same reason they picked up a 360 for COD.

"Sony gets a C+"

I'm curious...how is your breakdown of the Xbox conference? They didn't really offer anything much more substantial. BC was being called the megaton earlier...that seems rather odd even though it's a great announcement. If that's the only megaton, compared to Sony's bombardment, can't people just concede that Sony won? To me, Bethesda still had MS beat, but Sony just wowed me tonight. They haven't put on a show this good in a long time...if ever.

You're not an UC fan. That's fine. Just like TLG above, does that make the show bad? Do you feel that your personal opinion grade is actually reflective how other gamers are feeling about it, or is it just your personal opinion?

I wasn't too happy about the start of the TV stuff(although you don't mention it). But it was short, and the announcement of buying channels a la carte was actually a pretty big thing given how draconian cable companies are in this mantra that you have to buy packages with tons of channels you won't ever possibly watch. Let's face it, if Sony can show media announcements, and get people to cheer about it at the end, that's pretty impressive, since no company has been able to do that with any genuine applause. There was a whole, "sticking it to the cable company" feel from that announcement.

I don't know what you're feelings are on the subject, but felt compelled to respond due to JJ's comment. If he can't listen to 2 minutes of boring announcements, and then tries to act like it was a major part of the conference, then I feel compelled to respond, so nothing directed at you in these last two paragraphs.

kenshiro1001099d ago

Also ignored Horizon and Dreams. Oh and a few others. Keep harping that sad argument to iustify your hatred.

ifistbrowni1099d ago (Edited 1099d ago )

the thing that drives me crazy is COD got like 13 minutes of show time and they rushed games like No Mans Sky off the stage....

they didn't even show Until Dawn (except for that like mash-up montage), which really bums me out since the game is rumored to launch in August (or confirmed? don't feel like googling)... Hopefully we'll see demos of it through the press "on the floor."

I'm also looking forward to seeing the improvements made to Gears Ultimate Edition and Uncharted (one particularly) collection. Hopefully we'll see demos of those too.

Of course, Gears is an Xbox game, but when you own both consoles you look forward to all announcements and there is no need to "downplay" any announcement... I can be excited for all.

ziggurcat1099d ago (Edited 1099d ago )

@gangsta:

"Did I not just say that Horizon kicked major a$$? Hmmm... pretty sure I did."

but you also flippantly dismissed FFVII *remake*, shenmue 3, the last guardian - all of which have been ridiculously anticipated for *years*.

then you also completely overlooked street fighter, media molecule's project, and dismissed uncharted 4...

so one "positive" comment in a sea of negativity doesn't mean that you're presenting a reasoned, balanced argument. your tendency to trash talk sony at every turn has been no different here with your "C+", and you're not fooling anyone just by saying one game looked like it was good.

gangsta_red1098d ago (Edited 1098d ago )

@Rainslacker

Shenmue: So what?

FF7 :Pretty sure it says "first on PS4" not ONLY on PS4. Which makes me think it's a timed exclusive.

Last Guardian: It wasn't appealing. I don't care how long OTHER people waited for the game or how LOUD that crowd clapped. It didn't appeal to me. You guys seem to be getting upset at other's opinions.

"Montages are bad? Guess they disprove the whole Sony has no game argument, so I can see why some people will think that."

A montage of multiplat games is suppose to disprove Sony has no games? I keep hearing Xbox has no games. But I guess it all depends on which side of the fence you stand on and want to defend.

"I'm curious...how is your breakdown of the Xbox conference?"

I've already did a breakdown in an Xbox related article, I'm surprised you didn't see it since you're usually right under everyone of my comments.

@Ziggurcat
"but you also flippantly dismissed FFVII *remake*, shenmue 3, the last guardian - all of which have been ridiculously anticipated for *years*."

You guys have a very hard time with context. I am responding to DigitalRaptor, I have already expressed my excitement for FF 7 already.

"so one "positive" comment in a sea of negativity doesn't mean that you're presenting a reasoned, balanced argument."

Of course not, you guys are only looking for praise and will trash anyone who has another opinion on the subject.

Davi1231099d ago

Nice try in convince that Sony and MS conferences were in the same level. Let me help with some titles you forgot: FFVII, No Man's Sky and Street Fighter V.

3-4-51099d ago

Both conferences were good, but neither was amazing.

FF7 remake, Lg + Shenmue 3 is awesome, but it's also not like the top of the top in terms of what they could announce.

Both conferences cut the BS and got straight to the point which I really appreciate, so I wouldn't say either "won", but both had respectable conferences that supported their console with high quality games.

rainslacker1099d ago

FF7 remake is the announcement almost everyone says would break the internet. What could they announce to possibly top that? Wouldn't matter who announced it...that's huge.

Shenmue III is also said to be an internet breaking announcement.

TLG finally making an appearance is often claimed by Sony fans to be a huge announcement, to which I disagree, but others don't.

I'm trying my best to think of what could possibly top any of those announcements? Before this, the biggest announcement at E3 ever was FFXIII going multi-plat, so Sony's raised the bar pretty high from that low point.

rezzah1099d ago

Did want one of them to announce they were gong to take over the world or something?

What more could you want from a game conference?

No Way1099d ago

I don't get it really. I loved FF7, in fact.. playing it again, currently.
However, what's the big deal in a remake? How much are they changing?
Is it just to make it prettier? To make it run on current gen games?
What's the big deal about it? Not saying I wouldn't get it..

But, really.. why would it break the internet, lol.

Azzanation1099d ago

So there best game they showed was a multiplat? Don't get me wrong, I am a huge FF7 fan and this is fantastic news however its only timed. While Shenmue 2 wasn't that impressive and probably the 3rd one wont sell that well. As for the Last Guardian its good there doing this game but this is not a must have title in my books. The game is interesting but lets be honest this only interests that niche market that loved Shadow of the Colossus.

To simple say Sony won is quite lame. MS showed great games as well. The best thing iv seen in Xbox conference is Backwards compatibly and Rares Replays while I personally liked No Mans Sky and FF7 for Sonys conference which are both timed.

Its going to be a fun year regardless of your console of choice.

n4rc1099d ago

well.. in the name of jumping in head first... lol

i didnt even know shenmue and TLG were games before reading comments here.. "the most requested"? hardly... they are both niche titles imo.. great for fans but they wont be huge commercial successes..

maybe im speaking as a north american gamer or even just myself.. but these titles dont appeal to me at all..

PONTIAC08G8GT1098d ago

My god you sound ridiculous. Like calm down and hide your boner, it's a video game. If you win the lottery, go nuts. But it's a game.

BallsEye1098d ago (Edited 1098d ago )

Shenmue where it has to be sponsored on kickstarter...Last Guardian no one knows when we gonna play. Anything of those titles actually coming out in 2015?? How is that any good? As I stated before, Yoshida could just go out on the stage, fart in the microphone, leave and all of you would cheer in joy and spread the word how sony won e3.

Only horizon looked good but when will we play it? Rest we've already seen.

MS nailed it. Games games games and they all come out this year. BC + Don't mind the new VR deals and Hololens tech as well.

NerdStalker1098d ago

All ms has to do is nothing and you will wet yourself. Ms had a good conference but let's not kid on here, it was hardly anything to bum about. It doesn't matter if sony show games that are coming out in the future it's still games that are in the pipeline.

What exactly did ms nail ? BC big deal hardly relevant, considering people buy next gen consoles for next gen games. Fallout 4 free mods, now confirmed on ps4. Gears of war ok, halo5 ok, not exactly a surprise though. That pirate game looks mediocre at best, they showed a few multiplatform games and you think they nailed it, I say it was good, but not exciting. At least Sony had suprises which is why they stole the show and not ms your hatred of sony is growing more proof sony nailed it.

FF7 remake on the other hand. HOLY SH*

Was not expecting that at all.

annoyedgamer1099d ago

Let me say this, not to troll or anything. But Uncharted 4 is a game I would go out and get a PS4 for. TLG is not.

raWfodog1099d ago

And you are perfectly entitled to your opinion, nothing wrong with that. Especially if you weren't a fan of Ico or SOTC, then TLG more than likely would not appeal to you.

I am definitely looking forward to it. I'm expecting another great story.

rainslacker1099d ago

I would recommend that if you get a PS4 for UC4, then to pick up TLG when it's available. If you haven't played Ico or SoTC, then you don't know why people are excited for this game. If you have played them, and didn't like them, then well, you probably won't like TLG either.

No Way1099d ago

@raWfodog - Sadly, I have never played either of those games.
Heard great things about em.. just never got around to them.
The Last Guardian looks great visually. But, I need to see more gameplay.
Hopefully it won't take a year to see any more about it.

But, that one clip wasn't enough for me. =(
I'm hoping for more info on it at the next game show. Forget the name.
