So there you have it another E3 put under the microscope for your personal scrutiny. Looks like Sony have just came out on top again this year, congratulations to them.

Remember, some of these points may be debatable and I may have missed or overlooked something. Please let me know in the comments section if you feel I have misjudged something as I'm very open to the idea that I'm wrong, as you should be in science. Thanks for reading.

MS = 40
Sony = 48
Ninty = 44

The numbers say it's pretty close. Clearly no one ran away with it if you were just watching and not scoring.

Edit: Redacted - noticed that was for AAA titles only.

PS3Freak1898d ago

I don't know if you can really subtract 2 from Microsoft for Trey Parker and Matt Stone.

They are working on the game directly after all, which makes it essentially no different than the developers coming on.

How could they not bring them on?

Chaostar1898d ago (Edited 1898d ago )

I was very torn with that myself it's good to hear a second opinion. I do think it's unfair to deduct the two points from MS but I'm fairly certain that the only reason they were trotted out was because of their status and not their work on the game. If they actually had something substantial to say about the game other than 'we kinda helped make the map' I'd remove both minus points. However they didn't even show any gameplay and, as much as I love Trey & Matt's work, I would much rather of been given more info from an actual developer.

-1 for that is fair to me but if anyone else would like to second opinion this please feel free.

Trey Parker and Matt Stone only said the exact same thing word for word that they had already said in an interview for Game Informer.

Godmars2901898d ago

Usher was only worth "one" negative point?

Chaostar1898d ago

Ha! Thank the flying spaghetti monster for mute buttons during THAT part.

If this system was opinion based, not only would I have removed all of MS's points but I would have locked all their execs in a room and forced them to listen to a full Usher album as punishment!

No sorry that's just too cruel, I wouldn't wish that on my worst enemy :D

DragonKnight1898d ago

If you look at this, it seems pretty clear that Sony and Nintendo are letting the products speak for themselves, and MS needs paid endorsements. I suppose that's a cultural divide though.

Godmars2901898d ago

Though Sony was literally hitting people over the head with the Potter franchise.

DragonKnight1898d ago

True. Can't argue with that. I suppose it's a matter of what was worse. 20 minutes of Wonderbook, or 3 Celeb Parade segments.
