GGG writes why they think Sony's E3 keynote was better than Microsoft or Nintendo's and why it will be impossible to top in the future.
Yeah sony had a great E3 this year specially the last of guardian to be honest i didn't expect a lot from sony microsoft as well had great e3 specially with the backwards compatibility and Gears 4 _____________________________ ______________ also i made this montage for E3 http://www.youtube.com/watc... hope you like it
I think that's what made Sony conference so great. We had no idea what to expect and they just surprised us beyond belief. well done montage
It was a terrific conference more surprises than MS and certainly more than Nintendo. Nintendo's games really geared heavily towards that Japanese market and I was bored at the end. I can't say Nintendo took it this year like they did last year. Nothing from third party as usual and no collaboration from from third party. If there's one thing that's apparent about MS and Sony is that they both were not only strongly game focused, but both played to there strengths immensely. Sony's strength on its partnerships, its wow factor from first party like Horizon and its more intimate relationships with developers. MS strengths on Software knowing its systems. XbL support, PC platforms and indie devs now thanks to WIN10 and unification with X1. Hardware strength new Elite controller As well as known strong studios and partnerships with others. Nobody was a slouch this E3 both had great games with only more to come. Sony did one upped MS in certain areas and MS upped Sony in certain areas. But they both did there best. If you have both then my god you are one spoiled child come this and next year. As I said both PLAYED THERE STRENGTHS and played them hella well. Overall Its really hard to say. A tie this year from the two, I'm not changing that. Nintendo didn't impress this year unfortunately.
Dat ending. Respect! On topic: The trifecta announcement will never be topped.
You mean the one where the game was stuck and had to reset..dat ending? Lol..
Check again. The unbiased are going with MS, sony was good but best no way. Fanboyism aside.
@thexgamerlive Stop what you're doing and step away from the crack pipe son. Crack kills. I haven't seen a single video game site yet that hasn't overwhelmingly chosen Sony for conference of E3....but we're sure your opinion matters more than the majority of gamers and gaming sites. Right......you're entitled to your opinion, no matter how wrong it is, lol.
Yeah Sony's conference was a hell of a blind side, nobody knew what was coming and they gave the skeptics plenty to mull over. Plenty of people will still come in this article and try to downplay it.....peep MCTjim and animalia below me lol, he thinks the last guardian and shenmue 3 will come to Xbox haha They claim ff7 remake timed doesn't matter yet praise tomb raider... They'll act like worlds of final fantasy, horizon, dreams and rigs fps Morpheus didn't exist. They cry about the shenmue kick starter. They'll claim it was all multiplatform deals and they'll say Sony spent 45 minutes on t.v. The show was great........that's just it..... Also I happened to catch Nintendo live video thing..... Umm.....its like they are shooting themselves in the foot... MS conference was great tho, so was ubi, sqeenix and Bethesda... Also I apologize when I say this but Horizon blew anything and everything I saw out of the water......I was most excited for fallout 4 till Isaw that shiz come on screen.
Horizon is my fave game so far to be honest.
If it will never be topped, you missed 4 other conferences that were way better. This was the 2nd worst they had...last years was the worst in recent memory.
He can't give you reasons because he'll have to pull them out of his rear.
nothing other than uncharted.....last guardian..looked super dated? Horizon..cool looking.. Shenmue..not even close to being made. Call of Duty DLC? Multiplats and little if no love for morpheus or the vita. That is why I think the conference stunk...Most everything they showed that was huge is not due out till late next year or afterwards...those are my reasons and its my opinion...I was disappointed to say the least. @genuine user...Its my opinion that is what make me different from others. I been around gaming for 48 years...been to many an E3 before it was open to the public. This was not the worst I've seen from other companies but its up there.
The Last Guardian Horizon: Zero Dawn Hitman (exclusive content) Street Fighter V No Man's Sky Dreams Firewatch Destiny Expansion (exclusive content) World of Final Fantasy Final Fantasy 7 remake Eitr Mother Russia Bleeds Ronin Crossing Souls Shenmue 3 Batman: Arkham Knight (with exclusive gameplay missions) Rigs Call of Duty Black Ops 3 (and Playstation being the lead platform for CoD) (exclusive content) Disney Infinity 3.0 (Star Wars exclusive content) Star Wars Battlefront 3 Uncharted 4 Until Dawn Then there was: Project Morpheus (with a slew of games and game compatibility) PlayStation Vue And whatever else I've missed. If the only thing to complain about is not being able to play some of these games this year, then it sounds like they not only won, but they made you anxious to play what they've announced (which was their goal). Honestly, between the three big names, I'm not sure how it's a competition. Announcing backwards compatibility for a console is equivalent to announcing said old console all over again and claiming it's new.
If you're going troll, at least give it some though.
Damn Microsoft employee.
Sony and Microsoft were neck and neck this year. Damn good showing from both. Nintendo was meh But i gotta give it to Bethesda this year for best conference, the Fallout 4 gameplay demo was pure HNNNNNNNGGGG
PS4 the best place to play.
not in 2015 !
Did bloodborne come out last year or something? Lol
Yeah, minus Bloodborne, Witcher, MGSV, Persona 5, Tales of Z, Uncharted Trilogy, the many other games releasing this year...
chaosx - what does MS have coming this year? and what exclusives have they released up to this point in 2015? right now, as far as I know, they have halo5; new tomb raider and another forza and the gears remaster. sony has "the order"; bloodborne (and it's expansion will release in the fall); before dawn; everybodys gone to the rapture; the witness and the UC trilogy. "no mans sky" may be out this year as well as the new hotshots golf.
MLB the show plus a bag of indies
It was mostly fanservice. It was surprising but I quickly got over it. TLG's announcement was huge for me, but I was disappointed by what I saw. I think I can prove that I was legitimately excited for TLG, and I'm not just trolling : http://i.gyazo.com/8362ab4d... http://i.gyazo.com/213d2e8c... It's sad to say, but the gameplay just looked..... boring. And extremely linear I think the only good games I've seen at E3 so far were Fallout 4 and Rare's pirate game, but I'll probably never buy an X1. Fingers crossed for the PC gaming conference tonight. Only Gabe can save E3
I kind of agree. I liked Horizon, other than that, Uncharted 4 in regards to 1st party. The other 2 announcements are multiplat and aren't slated to come out for atleast another 2 years (FFVII and Shenmue). They did have the most "wow factor" but most of the big games were 3rd party. Not saying Microsoft's was better, but I don't get where people think this is the best conference ever. I think they were on par, but I do hate the price of the new Microsoft controller lol. I do wish the pedals on the controller could be used for more buttons instead of being assigned to existing buttons. This was a great E3, hopefully Nintendo rounds it out.
Isn't Nintendo already done with E3 though? They had their video thing earlier today. Mostly about Mario Maker
They were both highly impressive right? Lets put it this way if Don was still around or some random suit at Xbox lol Sony would easily, EASILY taken this E3. Especially if you consider MS very rocky reputation with gamers in general. In fact Sony was very hard to beat this year. Luckily Phil quickly garnered very positive rep in such short amount of time at being at Xbox and really put on a great show that surprising equaled Sony's overall imo.
I'm with you on the Last Guardian. Everyone's happy to see it, of course, but what we saw was hardly mind blowing. If it was made by any other studio and hadn't ever been in development hell, most people would shove it to the side. I hope we see some more exciting stuff from it at Gamescom or TGS. As far as the only good games at E3, Horizon impressed me quite a bit. To me that was the show stealer from Sony.
yeah, for me Horizon looked extremely impressive visually, but I hope it's more of an open-world game than a standard linear TPS full of set pieces I also forgot Dark Souls 3
I have to agree with this one. I was expecting it look more crispier with the transition to the new system. Hopefully they can polish it up more before release.
Its crazy how FF7 remake and shenmue 3 announcement at one time is now suddenly not a big deal. Fan service yes and that is exactly why it was such a big deal for many people including the majority of the media and why we are seeing articles like this being written. Sony or MS can announce as many new IP's as they want but fan fav will always get more attention as it is obvious from this conference. You don't hear much about Sony's new IP like Horizon and Dream. Only thing that is on most people's mind is FF7 remake and shenmue 3
It is undoubtedly a big deal, and TLG too, but I'm under the impression that the hype for these things isn't representative of how much people ACTUALLY want them. It's like backwards compatibility. MS instantly won a lot of respect by announcing this, but among all those who were applauding, how many will actually go play X360 games now? Probably like 1% or less. People don't want it as much as they think they do. Once the announcement is over, everything cools off
Umm no Bethesda did.
It was still a shitty conference but they had more wow factors in there for me than any other conference. But I still liked bethesdas the most.
Seriously? What sensationalism. I'd say Microsoft and Sony were neck and neck, and Bethesda had the overall most entertaining presser.
Honestly, if you ask me; Microsoft had the more impressive E3 conference, and I believe its because alot of console gamers can't understand the magnitude of what Microsoft has done.
the difference maker for me was horizon - nothing (so far) beats it. it's a brand new ip from a great dev and the game looks amazing and (from the little description) has an interesting story. I don't see anything from Bethesda as good as it. I'd also throw last guardian in too - it looks like it'll be great (and emotional) game.
You know et! They didnt need to go in depth bout they vr cause ITS JUST GONNA WORK!. Multiplayet vr?but wots eith this 5k vr headset from the other guys,sayin more field of view. Thought u could look 360 doh
I have no idea what you said. Try typing it in your native language and I will use google translate.
The Last Guardian announced again again again. Sometime in 2016 if you believe them. It'll have been in production for more than 7 years if it actually does come out in 2016. Final Fantasy 7 Remake Announced is multiplat and has no release date. So it's several years away. A Shenmue 3 kickstarter. Hitting PC (at least) so it's multiplat. But honestly anyone could announce a kickstarter. Try making the game yourself Sony. Also several years away since it hasn't even started production. No Man's Sky shows another video of taking off and landing and looking at things for the second E3 in a row. Also no release date. Call of Duty... nuff said. Whatever the hell Dreams was. Uncharted 4 was pretty good. Did we watch the same E3? Edit - Crap I already forgot about Horizon... Probably not a good sign.
I think MS had the best conference, but Sony's was pretty good too. Sony definitely played on sentimentality, but when it comes down to games I want to play in 2015 and 2016, I thought MS's conference had the most substance.
Wow, clickbait much? How many of these "WON E3" articles do we need to read before the authors realize E3 isn't actually a competition?
RYSE was clowned for being a canned 360 game and being moved to XB1. The Last Guardian should not be spared
Depends on your type of games, I was more excited to see MS.
I disagree, fanboys say that about their systems every year.
I was honestly disappointed with all three this year. The only things I could give props to, was a 2015 release date for Star Fox Zero, Fatal Frame, and Xenoblade X, and Microsoft's handling of backwards compatibility being only one small step behind that of the Wii U (thoroughly trouncing PSNow), as well as the gameplay teaser for Kingdom Hearts 3, and a couple of other small titles. This was not the best E3 any of them have had, and to say that things will remain the way they were this year, is naivety at best, and console war propaganda spread by fanboy soldiers at worst.
I still don't get how they dominated. They pulled basically the same thing they did last year. Bare with us in 2014 and wait for the exclusives next year. 2015 same story. Last Guardian, glad it isn't dead but this has seen numerous delays in the 8 years of "development" I'll believe a 2016 release when I'm installing the game. FF7 great to hear but again wait, just wait. Granted fans have been waiting for years and Square never delays a game... Happy for all the fans to get their wish. Shenmue 3? Percent of PS4 owners that have played Shenmue 1 or 2? I'd say pretty damn small. All this told me was that 2015 I will be buying Wii U and Xbox exclusives and multis will be based on performance and friends.
Never be topped? OK guys... Take it down a notch... Tlg is a niche game.. Break even at best.. Shenmue isn't wanted by anyone, its why nobody wants to put a cent into it.. Everyone knows it won't sell Using those two to make the argument is pretty weak.. Cod deal is way bigger then both those games combined
A man agrees simply because there aren't that many games that have been anticipated that long left now. HL3 could if Valve has any interest in ever making it. After Shenmue though a man will never lose hope again in anything. Time to call up a man's ex wife. It can happen now a man knows it!
Miyamoto, “My thing with E3 is that we always focus on what’s coming out in the immediate future. We have some really great Zelda footage and, at some point we will be showing that off, but not today.” Miyamoto explains it well with the difference between the conferences, all games are coming out now until early 2016, while xbox and sony talk about games n end of 2016 with some in 2017 and 2018.
Sony had the best looking game with Horizon as far as consoles go and I can't wait to play it whenever it does come out. Still as impressive as their conference was the edge goes to MS. Im more concerned about the here and now and what I'll be able to experience soon. MS showed the things I can expect very soon. In fact I already installed some 360 games. And right now I'm test driving the games from the preview program. And later today I'll be on the Gears of War Beta.
I think this is appropraite for Sony conference. http://i.imgur.com/a7lpa5f....
I won!! I own both and if you're rocking both and PC(lucky basterds) You also won! BINGO!
It's over the moment they revealed the FFVII remake.
