IGN - Will Nintendo steal the show? Can Sony win back the trust of gamers? And what the heck has Microsoft been up to?
I will win E3! Seriously though, I'm so excited for each of these conferences. I love this time of the year.
Agreed, it's the gamers who are actually winning. Cannot wait for all the Press Conferences.
Its the gamers who win but these lovely gaming sites, will ensure to pick a winner, an attention whore article topic = massive hits
Yup, "winning"! You gotta love competition, it brings out the best in companies. I strongly believe Project Cafe (Wii 2) is a result of this. If there were no pressure on Nintendo to step up its game, they never would have. Same goes for Sony and MS, I love how every year they try to outdo each other.
Battlefield 3 is going to win E3. Since I'm mostly a PC gamer, I don't really care much about the "console wars". I do have a PS3 as a "sidekick", but its only a complement to my PC gaming (love the Sony exclusives, but PC is where I spend the majority of my online gaming time). That's why, for me, BF3 will win E3.
Yea, I also do a majority of my gaming on pc and have a PS3 on the side for exclusives. It's the absolute perfect combination. You get the best of both worlds!
They do make a great combo and I wonder how many other PC/PS3 combo gamers there are around here. I'm a FPS plus RTS fan and I happen to think that the PC is best platform for both of those genres. But, I don't want to miss out on console only games (damn you Rockstar, release more of your games for PC: RDR, LA Noire). Add in Sony's great lineup of exclusives and you have an incredible gaming combo.
PS3 for exclusives PC for multiplats/exclusives DS for handheld gaming/JRPGs That's my dream team
Same here agent, even tho I have begun to play more on ps3 than on PC lately(Due to friends)
Sony will win e3 again
Strictly speaking in terms of the show, I think Nintendo had the best year last year-- they didn't drag on for too long about boring matters (like Sony did with sales and 3D) and didn't make a fool of themselves with casual gaming (like MS did with Kinect domination) I remember being incredibly bored with some of the Sony conference and died from second hand embarrassment with Microsoft's (which was strangely enticing to watch) Nintendo was short and sweet, which was a shocking improvement over how they did the year before. I had zero hype for Nintendo last year considering their lowest E3 the year before, but was very surprised at how great their conference was. I don't think anyone expected anything from Nintendo last year
World Bad, Sony Good.
I'm going with Nintendo. New hardware is always most exciting, and I'm interested to see what the new system can do. Not to mention the new games and the controller and what they will do with the online Sony will show a lot of exclusives I'm sure, but who knows how many new ones they will reveal and how much gameplay gets shown. I'm hoping Sony reveals new features for PSN too. Nintendo may just as well just reveal the new hardware and not much else for the Wii 2, so it's best to keep hopes minimum as they always get out of hand during E3. I have no interest in Microsoft this year, all I can do is hope for some solid new titles for the 360 Regardless, I think Nintendo has the edge with the new hardware, but it all depends on how much either Sony or Nintendo show. Both have a lot of content to show, but there is no guarantee how much will be revealed.
I'll be watching Sony's conference to see what's coming down the pipe for the PS3, but I'm most excited to for Nintendo's conference. I can't wait for more details about their new console.
MS like every year They are already ahead taking ZOE and MGS from Sony and their conference not started
Konami going multiplatform gives no sort of "win" to MS when the games are being served for everyone. Hell even handhelds are getting metal gear titles. Thats pretty pathetic to be considered as a "win". Try harder.
@Zir0 Grow up troll. You excited for MGS2 to be on Xbox for the second time or are you too young to remember it already was. Metal Gear has spanned MS, Sony, & Nintendo. BTW Xcom & Metro aren't 360/PC anymore. On PS3 too brother. Anyway this E3 I am super excited to see NGP & Project Café show their stuff. Only thing MS may have for me is the CryEngine Kingdoms game. I already know I'll have to suffer through the first 25% of their conference which will be just COD:MW3 crap. 3DS news is whatever. Curious to see any new motion games or firmware as well. Plus there is always at leastone big suprise no one sees coming.
My god how dumb can you get? Taking MGS from Sony... MGS2 was on the XBOX. Zir0 your turning into the biggest laughing stock on the site.
And exactly how do multi-plats equal winning? Not that anything can be won anyways...
Some blatant trolling right there. TAKING(?) HD collections from Sony doesn't make sense at all. Also it proves this guy or girl is trolling.
gamers will be the true winners
Sony ofcourse. Sony always wins by default because they always have tons of new games announced while MS just talks about sales figures and a couple minor xbox live updates and nintendo just shows zelda/ mario/metroid. Sony hands down
You act like the Nintendo games are nothing yet say Sony will win for the same things. Don't forget the Wii 2! @BigBoss True, but those Nintendo games are still some of the best in the industry. I'd like to see some new IPs for Nintendo too, but IMO Nintendo has the edge with the new hardware ultimately. So it's hard for me to think Sony will dominate over Nintendo, both are neck and neck this year
he said sony shows NEW games where as nintendo show the SAME games over and over. that should change this year. i think we'll see the "old" nintendo.
"Who Will 'Win' This Year's Show?" Gamers.
It'll be hard to say, but my money is on Sony. They really seem to have dominated E3 as of late.
-N I N T E N D O- -W I N- -But all gamers wins-
Who cares...lots of good stuff coming out later this year. Not the least of which...Dark Souls...goodness...that.is.awe some.
NINTENDO will win because of new hardware, it's a given. I think Sony will come in second, once again announcing great games, NGP, and hopefully some new PSN features. MS will show off more kinect games, maybe take a jab at Sony for the PSN hack, reveal yet another Halo, and talk more stats.
i think games wise, microsoft will have the worst. not sure who out of sony and nintendo is gonna show the best games. dont forget nintendo's new console. what if they show something amazing for that. both sony and nintendo will come out with great games. i have a feeling microsoft are gonna try and shove alot of garbage down everyones throat and hype 3rd party games. of course codmw3 will be at their conference and he'll give the yearly " exlusive maps on xbox 360 first" speech.
Sega will win with a Dreamcast 2 announcement :D
and then you will wake up from your dream ;)
Dreamcast 2 = Next gen Power Stone
Has always at every end of E3 since 2005, IGN will say XBOX360.
Sony and Nintendo for me... I have a 360 (This time last year, I did not,) but I’m still not really that excited for MS’ conference. Sure, I want them to justify my purchase of their console... but I just don’t know what it could be. In that sense, I’m most interested in them, just not excited.
FIVE HOURS FIVE HOURS FIVE HOURS
So what will the winner get as a prize? That's right, not a bloody thing, it's an exhibition not a competition. Edit: Disagree? You've clearly been brainwashed.
... but they sort of DO get a prize for having the best conference. They don’t necessarily have to beat the other two, but there’s a reason they put so much money into these conferences. A successful conference generates good press and good fan reaction. If that conference is good enough, that means more people will be inclined to buy their products. The 1st parties themselves want to “win” because it will generate profit. Most people want every company to “win” on some level, because good s*^t is good for the consumer. Sure, there’s no immediate award, but in the mind of everybody who’s watching... there will be some sort of winner based on what is shown.
I appreciate the reply, but don't you think that those who watch or attend E3 are serious gamers who already know their mind. Casuals wouldn't care so much. If we have to decide who a winner is, I would assume that whichever console manufacturer you prefer is automatically the winner for you, unless they seriously drop the ball. I don't know about the rest of the world, but gaming exhibitions are not covered by the usual media in the UK, only gaming magazines and websites which I know from casual gaming friends and family are mostly viewed by serious gamers, or as many would dub, hardcore. Maybe it is a big deal in the US and viewed as a competition, either way, to me it's an exhibition where the big three announce future tech and games which most of the time we already know about.
I agree with you silk. Look what happened with Kinect. How come M$ gained the most out of E3 2010 and everyone here thinks they lost? It gives me the impression, that no matter what any other company does, Sony will always be the big winner.
I will watch all three, sony for the games, nintendo because new hardaware is always interesting and Microsoft for a few laughs.
It's not a competition, so there can't be a winner, but I think Nintendo's show will be the most interesting.
Nintendo's winning hands down!
nintendo or sony, sony will have more original Ip's that push gaming , nintendo will rely on new hardware... I actually think sony could win this.. their games are so much better than the competition.
Nobody can win E3. This is not a tournament, it is a trade show.
Im going with nintendo. It's extremely hard to compete with a new hardware announcement. Sony's conference will also be great too. Microsoft is just meh. They can either go back to hardcore or just drive away more gamers.
