The press was excited by Sony's presentation, and all credit must go to that company for turning around last year's dismal performance and 'putting on the best show'.
Microsoft's effort failed to ignite this year even with the undoubted presentation skills of Peter Moore, and the spectacle of him rockin' out on stage.
Nintendo, least of all, has nothing to prove. Last year it used E3 to really make a difference and to change so many perceptions and prejudices. It was an incredible moment that may never be repeated.
