E3 2007: Bursting the Bubble

Quote from the article:

"So E3 2007 has come and gone, and most websites and blogs seem to be trying to figure out who 'won' the show out of Nintendo, Sony, and Microsoft. This is made a bit difficult by the popular criticism that none of these three companies really showed us a whole lot we didn't already know about before. All we really saw in the end was more footage of Halo 3, Super Mario Galaxy, and Metal Gear Solid 4. People are criticizing Killzone 2 for only having graphics to display, without showing any actual game play features, but the truth is few of these games were much better off..."

The story is too old to be commented.

Not a totally bad article but pretty stupid and harsh on Little Big Planet, I mean does the writer even follow the news? "LBP will have enemies at TGS" a month old topic of many news sites including N4G. And with the game winning so many Game of the show awards and being way away from its release, the writer is associating it with Mario Sunshine.

Also, terrible point on console wars being FPS wars. Does the writer even notice that aside from Halo 3 and Killzone 2, most big games of E3 from different genres!? RPG: Mass Effect, Fallout3 (Both 1st and 3rd person), Witcher, Lost Odyssey. Racing: GT5, Burnout Paradise, NFS:PS, PGR4. Action/Adventure: Assassins Creed, GTA4, MGS4, God Of War PSP, Heavenly Sword, Uncharted. Music/Other: Rock Band, Guitar Hero 3, Jam Sessions...

And on his point about Adventure games, did he even follow E3 news? Wii's adventure Zack & Wiki won a lot of adventure awards and we also have superb Zelda DS. He said we wont get a Zelda for years, totally ignoring The Phantom Hourglass.

This E3 wasn't the but this person wasn't really a gamer or at least a good one. If you are a good and true gamer, how could you say it was a bad E3 with superb games like Halo 3, Killzone 2, Mass Effect, LBP, Metroid 3, Fallout 3, Bioshock, Mario Galaxy, Rock Band, Burnout Paradise, Uncharted, Heavenly Sword and much more...

Not many surprises but a lot of superb games for PS3, 360 and Wii owners along with PC, PSP and DS games.
