So now that Microsoft, Sony, and Nintendo have all finished their annual E3 press conferences, which of the Big Three "won" this year? Here is a comparison of some of the more memorable happenings from each conference.
Nintendo Won E3 with Wii U.
lol good one. Funny guy.
nintendo was a huge let down. m$ was ok nothing special. sony was better then them but overall they all sucked
I agree none of them were that great but I was most excited for Nintendo's with the WiiU and tons of new game announcements. The others just seemed a bit more bleh if that makes sense. Though that new TV Sony had with the unique split screen co-op was awesome. Just wish it was a little bigger.
nintendo seems like they are hiding something. not really showing the system. NOoooooooooooo specs. just the controller. come on!
None I wanted more PS3, not PSV from Sony MS was the kINECT show An Wii U's controller looks like a mini ipad with buttons
Sony I don't know who's was better out of MS and Nintendo. I was kinda excited about a hardcore wii (and I'm sure it'll have hardcore games) but I'm just not sold on the thing after that bare bones presentation of it. Not yet at least. I'm kinda looking forward to the new Halo trilogy, and the kinect interface for Ghost Recon was almost sold me on it. But that's pretty much it from MS. I was really hoping Sony would show some Agent footage and announce some more ps3 games. But their focus on move and Vita was far from a let down. The 500 dollar tv is a steal as well as the pricing for vita. And it looks like vita and move are getting some good software as well (Tenchu on the vita ftw). This E3 was disappointing for all the big 3 but Sony's was the best.
Nobody. Actually, the developers won this year... EA, Ubisoft, etc.
I think I would call it a draw between Nintendo and Microsoft. Playstation just gave us nothing innovative. This article failed to mention half of the Microsoft stuff such as cloud profiles, increase Kinect sensor detail, uDraw tablet, and Kinect Fun Labs ability to scan in object and have them digitized instantly. Microsoft is taking the family approach with Kinect knowing it has spent years on aquiring a hardcore gamer base. It is still releasing big blockbusters this year with the new Resident Evils, Halo AE, GoW3, MW3, etc. I agree it lacked lots of details and the demos were childish and not impressive. For Nintendo the presentation showed two separate markets for the future. They are gearing the new machine towards hard core gamers and not families. They are setting up the 3DS as their family oriented game system. While my verdict is still out on the 3D thing, I think the presentation was too focused on one thing, the new console. Most of the actual console is playing catch up. The online experience, HD graphics, social experience, etc. All of these already exist on PS3 and Xbox 360. The only innovation is the control. While it appears to be nice we will have to see application. Most of the video made it look a bit cumbersome. The feature I would love to see other system adopt is the ability to wireless stream video from the console to another device. If MS could create an Xbox application for Windows that could link to your box and receive a signal so a person could continue playing on their laptop that would be awesome. As far as holding a giant tablet to and watching the screen to play games may be a bit much. I prefer the controller-less approach of Kinect. Lets not forget the WiiU is not even coming out till next year. This means that most of Nintendo's presentation will be repeated next year with final versions of the games and release information. Best New Feature: (Microsoft) Live TV and DVR Most Innovative: (Nintendo) Wireless Streaming Video to the Controller Screen Best Upgrade: (Microsoft) Kinect sensitivity to the eyebrow and finger tips as well as scanning object to digital renders instantly
Its a big mixed bag Sony and Microsoft made there points clear but didn't make a huge impression Sony with the Vita and the price point showing a off Resistence (That game makes me wanna buy a PS3)and uncharted which both really impressed. Microsoft with its intuitive controls shows it works with graw and masseffect Gears of War made a big showing while ending it with a Halo 4 (Tired franchise in my opinion). Nintendo made its point with the Mario and Zelda franchises while adressing the Wii Nintendo DS will play a major role in there next gen systems. While answering to the Hardcore which in my opinion is very important All three stood for something at the press conference and its really up to what you're looking forward to in you're gaming life. Btw at the end of the day no matter what console you play on we're all gamers exclusives or not all three platforms have something to offer for everyone. Both Sony and Microsoft made it clear in there conferences its third party thats gonna rule world this and next year to come so we Xbox Fans Sony fans both win at the end of the day just enjoy gaming everyone regardless.
Sony & M$....Gearz & Resistance!!! Nintendo always wins with the younger crowd :P
