Let's break down some of the winners and losers from last week's Gamescom conference. Spoiler alert: Xbox did really well.
Haven't EA learned from Disney!?
Wow, 3 out of the 4 editors chose XBOX One as the Winner....and I 100% agreed . :)
Xbox One has a great show. But Playstation didnt even have a show so......
So Sony forfeited as they have nothing new to show rather than go head to head with the competition. That is just a theory so who knows. :)
Rookie They have stated multiple times that they skipped Gamescom because it is simply too close to E3. Anyways, they still have PGS, TGS, and PSX
Calm Down dude. I said it is just a rumor and I am sure Sony will have new stuff to show as well at their upcoming shows. Looking forward to it. Stil don't know why you make it such a personal deal when what I said about 3 out the 4 editors made xb1 their winners from this article as I know Sony wasn't there but just stating what was said. Chill bud.
simply too close with nothing new to show. I think thats pretty obvious.
@Rookie I like how you upgraded your "theory" to "rumor" status....Here's a rumor for you, Sony has upwards of a dozen studios all working on new titles, as well as around a half dozen potentially generation defining titles on the docket for next year. They also have a TGS showing, a Paris Games Week showing & a full on dedicated Playstation Experience to fill up....but I guess your "theory"....oh I'm sorry, the "rumor" is that those conferences will be filled w/ nothing but sales statistics and the sound of crickets. MS had a good solid show, nothing mindblowing. Considering their year is finished in terms of conferences already that means that MS announced 3 new exclusives this year whereas Sony announced that many or more in the lead up and during E3. There's an actual "rumor" making the rounds that Sony's PSX will have upwards of a half dozen new AAA titles revealed, and that "rumor" has actual first party studios to back it up....I guess we will see which "theory" is true in a few months.
It's not a theory. It's fanboy BS you and others have been parroting since before the conference was even held. Don't know why you're trying to act like the "theory" has any validity since it was shot down before it left the runway.
So the editors of one site chose the xbox, yet the official gamescom awards clearly chose otherwise.... http://www.playstationlifes... So no. In other words, Microsoft couldn't even win a conference in which Sony didn't hold a press conference,though Sony obviously had a strong floor presence, and the official gamescom awards show that. I personally think Microsoft had a very good showing at Gamescom, and showed off several interesting titles, but the Europeans just don't care about the xbox, period. So for all the noise you hear about Microsoft exclusive this, Microsoft exclusive that for this fall, and the noise about Microsoft's lineup for 2016....the bottom line is that it really only matters to gamers in the US and UK. Microsoft can do well in those places, but they're probably not going to fare well elsewhere. We've seen this before, after all.
Winner: Crackdown 3's destruction demo!! Been a long time since something in gaming has blown my mind. Loser: I don't know. There was nothing I hated.
Microsoft won GC by default. Almost everything shown on X1 was awesome. The loser of GC is EA's The Sims Stage Dancing/Party nonsense. Truly Cringe Worthy /
Thank god i skipped EA stuff then
yeah, that was brutal.
Thanks, but coming from a PS-Centric Site, I would expect a little Bias. IMO MS Won Gamescom by Default .....better? /
It's not a Playstation site that did the deciding. It was Gamescom itself. http://www.gamescom-cologne... Brutal link, but if you check the bottom of the article medman cites, it links you to Gamescom's website.
Oh okay, I hit the link and just noticed the sites name PS Lifestyle, my bad. Who am I to argue with Gamescom, huh?
So according to their logic PlayStation is a loser because they were not present but then this very pathetic logic makes also the xbox a loser because they are not going to be on Paris and TGS. Also, you have to be very dumb to call "loser" to the console that owns 90% of all the European console market.
nobody had heard of Paris gamesweek until Sony said they would be there. And its not like MS has ever had a real presence at TGS.
Sony is beating competition 9-1 in Germany they didn't need to be there. There are going to be over 300,000 people at Paris Game Show which is comparable to Gamescon size which has about 350,000 attendance.
It is good Microsoft finally won one of these shows - it only took non-attendance from Sony for this to be possible. Mirocosft did not show anything we did not already know about since the games had been announced previously with the exception of the new Halo:Wars strategy game. It was good to get new trailers and gameplay trailers on Scalebound and Crackdown 3 but it seems this is it - this is all Microsoft has to show this year. So by the logic applied in this article, Sony should win Paris and Tokyo since Microsoft will have nothing new to show.
Yet sony were there as they had the biggest booths
Uhhh...Microsoft didn't exactly win...not according to the official gamescom awards. http://www.playstationlifes...
