Sony and Nintendo Keynote Reviews: More ‘Buck for Bang’?

OXCGN:

"Did Nintendo & Sony deliver?

Without further ado I declare Microsoft did not deliver a keynote anywhere near last year's E3 Keynote but Nintendo and Sony did deliver by addressing all their fan's interests: from the hardcore gamers to the casual gamers, from the handheld gamers to new gamers.

Both keynotes offered a great deal more 'buck for bang' (if you pardon the reversal of the saying) than what Microsoft had to offer and show with their elaborate blockbuster 'big bang- but little substance' presentation." (Casual games, E3, Goldeneye 007, Industry, Killzone 3, Nintendo, Nintendo DS, PS3, PSP, Sony, Twisted Metal , Wii) -

There are certainly some interesting things shown this E3 but I think that in general there was too much that we knew or was the same for it to be all that exciting.

Certainly the more exciting things had nothing to do with shooters which seem to mostly look samish or are sequels.

Nintendo seems to rehash the same characters they always do in new games.

I was hoping for some different announcements, but in vain. Still, 3DS and Sorcery look interesting, and I've been waiting for a Goldeneye remake for yonks.

The 3DS is going to be the hardcore and casual gamers cocaine that will make them want to eventually buy a 3D enabled TV in 2-3 years time (Be it with glasses or not).

I'm really not into the whole 3D tv thing, but the DS...I think it's great.

Totally, 3DS will sell like crazy and will Freely Promote 3D, everyone will jump into 3D, that's why Sony is Happy about the 3DS...

Their Microsoft Keynote Review Score: 6/10
"Every single Kinect title shown was cringe-worthy and Nintendo’s Wii had these titles years ago"

I liked the new 360 (but why does it still have a disc tray?) and the Star Wars Kinect.

A few of the games...

I've always been a fan of Nintendo, so 3DS is something I'd like- but they need to move the analogue or d pad to the other side! Better yet: two analogue pads!

Oh i have to agree there, Why the hell did they still put a disc tray in the damn machine? This was their chance!!!!!

meh, Nintendo ruled this year.
BadCircuit  +   1720d ago
Yeah but it's true that Nintendo rely too much on their old cast of characters. Let's make a new game; who do we put in it? Oh donkey kong! Kirby!
Godem  +   1720d ago
also true there mate, Although honestly, I think the appeal for a new character from Nintendo wouldn't succeed like the others would, simply because I think the fan base wouldn't care? I hope that makes sense?
gaminoz  +   1720d ago
yeah the disc tray thing was a stupid choice: must have been cost? Look at that video on the net where the guy accidentally moved the new 360 S and killed the Alan Wake disc...

IMHO
Nintendo should have been bumped up 1 point for remaking OOT in 3d and MGS 3d, not to mention street fighter VI and saints row.The lineup for 3ds couldn't even be covered it was so huge.

Sony should be brought down 1 point for wasting the first 30 minutes pimping their 3d tvs and showing us their new ad campaigns... I CAN'T PLAY AN AD CAMPAIGN!!! It makes me shudder to think of the exclusive content for PSN+. MORE ADS!!!

Sony's was still a little stale, as it has been for years. There's something really clinical about their E3 events.
Nintendo totally delivered.

Sony Move is definitely more bang for buck when compared to Kinect

ahhhh!
Yeah I completely missed out that Nintendo are bringing back oldies on the 3DS but to be honest I've played these games to death and I mean it's great they
're bringing them back but I really don't want to be playing them all over again in 3d form you know?

It's awesome classics are being relived and they do have some new titles as well that they're going to do for it!

The 3DS will get us hungry for 1 of them non glasses LCD tvs in 2011 and i will buy 1 straight away because nintendo have said they will bring wii2 with 3D/HD ect when the adoption rate is 30%.Plus they will have about 400 high quality games on 3DS by then so experience in creating non glasses 3D games for 3rd partys on nintendo platforms will be at its best only to bring a FUSION APU powered wii they have officially comfirmed they will use that gpu at least in wii2 its super powerful and can do in game cgi and real life graphics where u cant tell the difference ect so the ultimate home console is on its way in 2012.
