So, Which E3 Announcements Generated The Most Buzz?

From Kotaku: E3 is all about the buzz. What was best, what was worst, that kind of thing. But what news generated the most buzz?

More after the jump.

The story is too old to be commented.

Natal has really generated a lot of buzz this week.It's been the only gaming related thing from E3 that BBC and SKY News have shown in the UK.

I thought 360 fans were all about the GAMES. They bash the Wii remote, they bash PS3 for being a media centre but when MS announces the same things, that's all that matters.

All Time Greatness3113d ago

We all know Microsft showed/announced alot of games, there's no need to be mad at Xbox 360 owners/fans because Natal is getting huge Media hype.

Cyrax_873113d ago (Edited 3113d ago )

I couldn't care less about Natal/PS3 motion controls, if I wanted to jump around in my living room like a little kid, I would of bought a Wii.

And I'm sorry but, what games? MS fans screamed all year "just wait for E3, wait for E3!"

They they screamed the games they were 90% sure would be announced:

MGS4 or FFXIII Versus on the 360!
Killer Instinct 3!
Blue Dragon 2!
Lost Odyssee 2!
Fable 3!
Gears 3!

None of these were announced, MS biggest game was yet another multiplat game. MS only announced 2 new games coming out this year, Crackdown 2 and L4D2, we all knew about Forza 3 and Splinter Cell already.

Once again 360 fans have to wait until Q4 of this year just to play 2-3 decent games just like last year. Whilst Sony has already released MLB 09 (90%), KZ2 (91%), inFamous (85%) and Flower (87%).

edit, lol @ the disagrees. anybody care to explain why?

dogmeat eater3113d ago

Your average gamer is not going to give two fuks about that. They just want games. Like me. This is why motion controls don't work with me. This goes for sony/ms/nintendo. Motion controls=Biggest gimmick this gen.

Shane Kim said they had more games to announce Microsoft most likely changed their minds knowing they would win E3. There were supposed to be Rare and LionHead announcements and that never happened. There are more game events to talk. I was thinking *Ninety Nine Nights 2* was going to be shown at E3 but that will probably make TGS 09 with other announcements.

@Cyrax_87

why do you care so much what 360 owners are going to be playing this year?

what are you going to be playing in 09?

God of war 3? ..oh yeah 2010

maybe Heavy Rain? .. oh yeah ..2010 according to GTTV

or some Gran Turismo 5?... ah yeah ... no release date even at E3

so much talking ..to just end up with Uncharted 2 and MAG?

Lots of people are going to be playing this year

Splinter Cell: Conviction
Left 4 dead 2
Forza Motorsport 3
Halo: ODST
Shadow Complex
GTA: Episode 2

Along with Halo wars, And Lost and Damned

both systems have good games for 09 ..but don't try to downplay the xbox 360 games..makes you look stupid

menoyou3113d ago

Natal because Microsoft is the king of marketing. What they do with Halo is nothing short of miraculous.

really duh3113d ago

*Splinter Cell Conviction
*Forza 3
*Shadow Complex
*Halo 3: ODST

Did anyone notice that GoW3 and GT5 got less buzz than Beatles Rockband, L4D and Assassins Creed?

I'm really surprised about this. I expect MGS and FF XIII is in the same league as those two games, but L4D and Assassins Creed....

This is very unexpected!

SaberEdge3113d ago (Edited 3113d ago )

Well for me personally Assassin's Creed 2 is one of my most anticipated games and so it did overshadow some other games.

Edit: Thanks Really Duh, I hadn't seen that video. It was good. Shane Kim is such a cool guy.

It was interesting that he said "well, we didn't put every Microsoft Game Studios game that's coming out this year on stage". Hmm...I wonder what else they have to show.

Cyrax_873113d ago (Edited 3113d ago )

What am I playing in 09? Like I said MLB09, KZ2, inFamous and Flower have already been released and have great scores. What exactly have you been playing so far? Halo Wars and more DLC? Riiight. It's not right to question Sony's fall lineup when MS haven't released anything decent for the 1st half of the year.

GoW3, GT5, Heavy Rain? I never said those will be out this year, don't let the fanboys speak for everyone. >_>

What will I be playing later this year? MAG, Uncharted 2, Fat Princess, Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 and Ratchet and Clank Future 2.

I'm not downplaying the 360s lineup, it's just a shame though that half those games are DLC/expansion packs.

soxfan20053113d ago (Edited 3113d ago )

@cyrax87

You downplay the MS games that you knew were coming. What about the PS3 games?

God of War 3, Gran Turismo 5, Uncharted 2, Heavy Rain, MAG - we knew all those were coming too.

You say MS's biggest announcement was a multi-platform game. Sony's biggest PS3 announcement was Final Fantasy 14 - also multi-platform.

EDIT:I wasn't referring to PC - FF14 was announced for 360 the next day.

Cyrax_873113d ago (Edited 3113d ago )

are you saying that 360/PC and PS3/PC games aren't exclusive? So L4D, Gears, Mass Effect ect aren't in fact exclusive now? Or does this only apply to PS3?

edit: I thought they said the were "considering" moving it on others platforms. If not, I stand corrected. And IMO the Agent was Sony's biggest announcement (an exclusive from Rock* North? Fvck yeah).

soxfan20053113d ago (Edited 3113d ago )

The "biggest announcement" is just a matter of opinion anyways. To me, MS's biggest announcement was the sooner than expected release date of Forza 3, accompanied by the amazing gameplay demo.

Good to see you fired up about Agent - nothing wrong with that. But you have to remember, 360 fans are just as excited about their games, regardless of what a PS3 fans' opinion of the 360 games may be.

sniper-squeak3113d ago

...motion control is still in its very early stages in all forms. What's the maximum you can do with virtual reality? Thinking about it takes you to unprecedented levels and looking at what they're doing... Natal, Sony motion control... Milo, 3D games! it's all still in the works... even the Wii is still in the works.

If you want this technology to be as common as a PS3 Dual Shock controller, or your average game, you're looking at 50 years. Right now, we are only the testers for these new concepts because there's always a first time to everything.

Rlly guys was this hard 2 expect from kotaku LOL ? PS EYE ? F THAT! WE WANT NATAL! beCus MS says so! OoOoOYyYeEeAaHh

We dont need games, we need products like natal with no release dates! cus we gamers live in the future and not in the now!

SaberEdge3113d ago

Of course. If anyone ever says anything negative about the PS3 or positive about the 360 it is only because they are biased. I mean, they couldn't possibly just be gamers who own both consoles, like myself, who genuinely think Microsoft had a better showing.

It's ok, we already know how you guys think.

Just be happy Sony did have a good showing and we PS3 owners have a lot of good stuff to look forward to.

Lfmesquite3113d ago

I just won't enjoy, kicking and jumping at my TV.

I'm a gamer, I don't care about that.

I don't think this does anything for gaming, it's Microsoft wanting to take the casual crowd from Nintendo and especially Wii Fit.

But for gaming, this sucks. How do you play a shooter? Imagine your hand is a gun?

All Time Greatness3113d ago

You obviously won't be playing Halo, Gears and Left 4 Dead on Natal. That's why they showed the Mini games/Milo and talked about making specific games for it.

unrealgamer583113d ago

im gonna be honest i think that natal is the new duke nukem.(bare with me before you disagree). I mean in the sense that it will not show up on 360 but microsoft's next console (the demo shown at e3 is indefinitely in development for a long time) , this is why im more excited about ps3 motion controller (devs already have it)... oh and the fact that milo get's scrubed every 300 hours (don't believe me check it out on kotaku)

Sharingan_no_Kakashi3113d ago

I can see the blog posts now
"ZOMG!!!!1111ONE!!!!1WON NATAL IS SO FRIGGGGIN AWESOME!!!DUDE YOU NO LONGER NEED A CONTROLLER!!!!1111"

Or something like that. Who'd place money on the fact that most of the Natal Buzz was right here in N4g when we were arguing over its practicality? XD
