IGN -Who Won E3 2012: Nintendo, Sony or Microsoft...or Ubisoft!?

Our IGN's editors break down who they thought had the best and worst showing at this year's convention.

The Last of Us, and Beyond for me. Yea and FarCry3!!!
S guess it's a toss up between Sony and Ubi.

I give you Watchdogs but I'm meh for FarCry 3 and Assasins Creed still needs to convince me on how much they improve the game graphically and level design.

1st party: Sony wins
3rd party: Ubisoft wins


FarCry3, AC3 and Watch Dogs are coming to PS3 anyway, Ubisoft is not competing with Sony, don't know why they get forced into this.

if it is about publishers it would make sense

In my personal OPINION noooooooo one won E3 it was total disaster everything was known before the event. no new IP'S 2006 milked REHASHED games was shown.

RATCHET AND CLANK Full Frontal Assault won E3 simple fact it is a NEW ip

Dee_914011d ago

it was a disaster?no new ips?
I only knew about tlou halo 4 forza horizon and gowa.And even if I knew every game that was being announced I still wouldnt be upset because they showed gameplay.
I dont get why everyone gets pissed when they dont get suprised when they read every e3 article weeks prior to e3 with leaked info.

Lol I dont even know why Nintendo and Microsoft were in the title. No way they won. However, even though MS's smartglass App for phones and Tablets is very smart, their games display was a joke. And wii-U's games looked like they were running on the old wii console, yet in HD. Aside from Ubisofts excellent "Watch Dogs", AC3, and AC3:Liberation; and Naughty Dog (The Last of Us) and Qauntum Dreams (Beyond: Two Souls) games, This rest of E3 was quite lame.

Also, prior to this E3 2012, I thought Tomb Raider and Metal Gear Rising Reveangance were gonna be underwhelming, but the footage shown at this E3 (Rising's Stealth and energy consumption/management, and Tomb raiders involved storyline and survival aspects) made me very excited for those 2 games too.

The rest were "meh"...

In my opinion:
UBISOFT = "A" (AC3, only strong Wii-U lineup, AC3:lib, Rayman, Watch Dogs, Far cry 3 (which looked "okay"), and MORE.
SONY = "B" (Last of Us, GoW, Beyond, LBPkarting, PS All Stars, etc)
MICROSOFT = "D+" (the plus is for smartglass app, & "maybe" Halo 4)
NINTENDO = "D-/F+" (Almost an "F grade". Horrible considering that Wii-u is coming out soon and they dont have a single worthy exclusive, and mostly just 1st party tech demo's. And if they really did have a price point in mind, E3 was the time to do it. Not later. What a bunch of joker's.)

I'd say Ubisoft. I plan on getting AC3, FC3 and Watch Dogs. And the Vita AC bundle looks tempting.

Last of Us looks outstanding but they missed out on showing off Sly Cooper, Dust 514 and LittleBigPlanet Karting (which actually looks pretty good). Sony could've won if they kept Wonderbook to only 10 minutes as opposed to half the show and showed some of their other exclusives.

edit: A shout out to the Ratchet and Clank trilogy wouldn't have been bad either.

PC gamers won, not a single dissapointment, and a few surprises.

rjdofu4011d ago

How about... Dark soul with 30FPS & window live?

ninjahunter4011d ago

You mean PC gamers getting a console exclusive from a game the probably should have never made it to pc? Ile take it.

AusWarrior4011d ago

Overall I think it was Ubisoft because they were consistently displaying great games, but as for the consoles I'd definitely go with Sony.

HalfNerdHalfAmazing4011d ago

If Ubisoft would have it own console ps4 & Xbox 720 would fail

Biggest4011d ago

Because of one good show. Totally makes sense! -_-
