EA is a replacement for "ugly", if you didn't notice.
I think every one had a solid E3 EA was the the only one that sh!t imo.
Nintendo surprised me the most. Pretty much all of their first looks were in fact "first looks" as in they werent previously leaked by "insiders". MS and Sony had some of their thunder stolen by leaks prior (both intentional and unintentional). when you look at the big 3, only Nintendo was really all about games for their platform. MS and Sony had their own games but also upselling the multi's at the same time. the winner of E3 is actually the gamers. We get to play these games in due time.
"when you look at the big 3, only Nintendo was really all about games for their platform. MS and Sony had their own games but also upselling the multi's at the same time." Well yeah, nintendo's 3rd party cupboard is quite bare isn't it.
@darthv72 You're giving Nintendo credit for showing games for their platform while in reality many 3rd parties aren't making games at all for Nintendo's console. Hard to give them credit for that. So while I agree Nintendo's conference was stellar and just what Nintendo fans wanted to see, you can't denigrate Sony or Microsoft for showing great 3rd party titles. Those are the games that usually move more copies than even 1st party exclusives, so why not show them if you've got them and they look as good as they did? I loved Sony's conference. Of course it chugged for a bit with some long winded speeches, but they've earned the right to chug if they want to. They showed tech (Vita TV, morpheus), first parties, 3rd parties, services (psnow), strong indies, and even revealed a special edition white ps4 with Destiny bundle. Microsoft also had a strong showing. It was a good E3 all around. The only thing I would consider bad is the surprises were taken out of the equation for the most part due to leaks before the show.
I agree. Imo this E3 had the most games I've seen in a while. Past E3's lack allot of games but this year was packed. Third party, 1st party had it locked down this year. The only that was lacking were new Ip's I didn't see allot of new Ips. But other than that this E3 was one of the best no surprise factors but games, games, games they weren't short of this year. And had something for everybody, literally.
I actually loooved the EA conference.. It was the first one I actually enjoyed.. It wasn't all CGI, it was showing the actual development and gameplay.. I wish they showed all games in whatever form, Im interested in ideas and mechanics, who cares what the graphics look like. I can't believe I'm the only one who loved it. Everyone on here complains about CGI and then complains 100X harder at gameplay?
I just got my XBOX ONE thanks to E3. XBOX......ON, its so cool.
Thought I would be saying the same but MS E3 didn't make me want one just yet well not until around November when the Halo collection is out.
Haven't played an Xbox in years but goddamn it the sighting of Halo 2 and a rush of nostalgia almost made me click over to Amazon to get an X1 Maybe down the road I'll get one just to play the Chief collection with Halo 5
This guy claims he just got his Xbox; but a little history research shows he's an xbot who bought an Xbox One a long time ago.
Wow and yet you get disagrees for stating you got an X1. This sites agenda man.
Bubble up to everyone who got a disagree simply for stating they like Xbox One. That is the only way to combat this ridiculous commenting system/bias attitude on this site.
You should have seen it when the ps3/360 launched
@AngelicIceDiamond "I feel exactly the same way but the other way around my XB1 has the best game now and the future looks really good, so I'm just not feeling it with Sony this gen. #11.2 154d ago by VforVideogames | View comment " Maybe if you look at his history, you will see why he has disagrees
i thought you already had one
Why is everyone saying that EA was bad? They had to show their sports games, it's what makes them alot of money it's what there known for, they showed great games and overall it was a very decent conference.
Yeah, the did have to show them, not base their whole bloody conference on them. And the Sims. God the sims! Lets be honest, most people who watch E3 aren't in it to hear about the sports games. I was really excited to see some battlefront and what am I greeted with? A shitty 2 minute documentary with pretty much no gameplay or anything with the announcement we don't actually get to see anything until spring next year. Thanks EA! I wouldn't have minded just seeing some concept gameplay like the did for mirrors edge, or a proper walkthrough of some of the environments but no.
The Sims makes EA a shit ton of money and so do their sports games. EA can do some things to make the gamer happy, but making the stock holders happy is priority #1! Electronic Arts NASDAQ: EA - Jun 12 1:40 PM ET 35.460.05 (0.14%) http://investor.ea.com/stoc...
Again. They showed... Dragon Age: Inquisition Battlefront 3 Battlefield: Hardline ...and gave us a demo which I and many people on two different platforms are enjoying. Yes they had a lot of stuff many people don't like, but alot of people also love those franchises. To the rest of us they gave us a ton. Amazing Star Wars, a good look at DA:I, and not only showed Battlefield: Hardline, but gave us a beta/demo to play with for two weeks or longer. They did also announcer Mirror's edge, so those people have that. They touched a lot of segments. The sports crowd got theirs. The Sims crow got theirs. The strategy RPG got theirs. The free running got theirs. The FPS fans really got theirs with 2 games AND a beta/demo. I'm probably even forgetting something. EA should be bashed when there is an actual reason to be bashed. This isn't that time, when it is, we'll know it.
Except dragon age had already had a demo earlier that day, didn't really care about another one, hardline had already had so much gameplay shown it just didn't matter and they showed such a little amount of battlefront it was a complete waste of time.
Nerds don't want to hear about Sports Games :P they have all the power on sites like this.
"And the EA"... That is so funny!!!
I FEEL LIKE EVERYONE HAD A GOOD SHOWING IN TERMS OF HARDWARE COMPANIES. I HAVNT DIPPED INTO NEXT GEN YET BUT IM MOST DEFFINATELY GETTING A PS4 FIRST XBOX ONE WITH KINECT SECOND AND I REALLI DNT KNOW IF IM GOING TO BUY A WII U
Nintendo > Sony > Microsoft. Sony need to cut the sales talk and movie bull from their games shows.
I totally agree!!!
I always thought that E3 stood for Electronic Entertainment Expo....E3 has never been only about the games.
Only gamers watch Sonys show. Don't try to come up with any excuses for them.
Chespin, people who are interested in tech ALSO watch/go to E3 conferences. That's not an excuse. Do get over yourself with that crap.
Sony suffered from TMS this year. Too Many Suits. That one suit looked like he was ready to sell everyone a mutual fund. NOT what gaming needs. Just get one presenter and go through your offerings. I think there were 4 or 5 presenters?! Way too many. The flow gets destroyed.
Sonys bored me senseless, Microsofts had a good pace Both concentrated too much on timed exclusive dlc/betas which are really bad for gamers. Nintendos was surprisingly solid, but ubisoft stole the show for me.
After a Year of announcing it showing nothing for Battlefront was really weak and did not inspire confidence. WTF was DICE doing?
I'm guessing they're busy making the game. You should be happy they're not rushing things like they did with BF4. I'm also disappointed they didn't show any gameplay but I'd rather see nothing at all than something that won't look like the final product.
A year and not even a rough short gameplay trailer to show. Sorry but that is just bad, the fact that after a year they only have a few engine experiments to show is really weak. Probably all that time trying to fix their broken releases.
One year is a short amount of time for big games like these. It's understandable that the game isn't ready to be shown. Look on the bright side. Hopefully this means they're not just making a reskinned Battlefield game.
EA reminds me of the hooker that Quagmire married.
Sony came out swinging and then let their foot off the gas. I have no problem with them talking about PS Now, PSTV, and Project Morpheus (especially because those are features Microsoft doesn't have), but bringing out the director of that Powers show at your E3 conference?? That part needed to be cut. Microsoft had a solid show, but I don't think it was as good as many people seem to think. Just because they finally did what you're supposed to do at E3 (y'know, show games) doesn't mean they automatically win. Probably their best show in years, but personally I'm not exactly waiting in line for my X1 just yet. That's just me. The real winner? Nintendo. Easily. New Zelda, Star Fox, and Super Smash. New Yoshi and Kirby games. That Mario Maker game = head explodes. Plus that new FPS IP. And all in under an hour!
This guys knows what he's talking about!!!
Sony had the 1st or 2nd conference, not in terms of how entertaining it was to watch but in terms of the games they showed. The other contender was Nintendo I think.
I said months ahead of time Sony would have hardly any first party games. I said 3 maybe 4 my previous posts on here prove i was right. I thought Microsoft would have more first party exclusives. Again i was proven right they had 9 or 10 Of course Sony fans will never accept truth, part of the course on N4G. Microsoft won E3 no question about that at all. What i was disappointed about is they didn't have a killer IP or two. Something that would blow everyone away. But looking at what they showed and what Sony showed (timeline when they come out too) MS won,.
I thought Nintendo also had a presentation and showed a ton of games. By your comment it seems I have imagined that.
Microsoft had 9 or 10 first-parties? lol what? Are you counting Halo 1-4 as individual games? You must be because: Forza Horizon 2 Fable Legends Project Spark Halo Master Chief Collection Phantom Dust Crackdown That's 6 by my count. Sony had 4: Entwined The Order: 1886 LittleBigPlanet 3 Uncharted 4 And let's not forget Santa Monica, Guerilla, Media Molecule, and Quantic Dream are all working on new IPs that were not shown. If you really wanna get down to do it, their conferences were pretty even. MS showed 20 games, Sony showed 19. Both showed 8 multi-platform games. Both had big exclusive betas (Sony with Destiny and MS with Evolve). And both had a pretty even amount of respective exclusive content. MS better bring it again next year because 2015 is going to be one of the best years Sony has ever seen for exclusive first-party games, in terms of both releases and reveals.
Bubbles sir, for well sayith.
I'd say Nintendo won. They showed more gameplay and have more games coming out this year, than the other two do.
KNWS said: "part of the course on N4G." The correct idiom is: "par for the course."
Well this article is crap. Anyone that refers to EA's presentation as ugly is a moron. Sorry, that's the truth. Not only did they showcase their usual Sports tripe, one that I share less then stellar excitement for, do we forget so easily that they are but one company, and yet they still showcased. Amazing Battlefront 3 stuff. (sorry this was some of the best footage of E3 all few seconds and utterly incomplete it was). What looks to be an amazing Dragon Age: Inquisition game. With the most relationships of any Bioware game in history. This alone, for a single company is enough to say it wasn't bad, let alone ugly. I get the EA hate, I hate what they do too, but hate that blinds you from reality makes that person as much of an idiot as they claim EA to be. Finally, of what I'll mention (which wasn't all of it) there was a little Battlefield: Hardline game, that not only looked great, but I've now been playing because unlike anyone else, at least so far, they have a demo out for PS4/PC owners. So they showcased some great games, and gave a beta/demo that we've all been playing, unlike ANYONE ELSE (though Destiny's is coming too), and somehow their E3 was bad? Fricking morons the lot of you that say that. Vote for them being the worst company in the world (which they aren't, that would be HSBC/Goldman Sachs/BofA/Wells Fargo/UBS/Barclay's and many other bank...or really Investment firms posing as banks so they can gamble with your money...they lose, you lose...they win, only they win.) ..But I understand the vote, so vote for them if you want. But there is no Sim City disaster right now. No Dead Space 3 microtransaction, no all the other crap, even BF4 is fixed, mostly. This is about the future, and while they had some yawners, they also had some amazing stuff, and provided ACTUAL gameplay to us gamers. To those judging these things, if you don't take into account a free beta of one of their very anticipated upcoming games into the equation, then you have no legitimacy in your score, and look like an utter fool.
Microsoft one. They had the more original exclusives and they actually looked fun. Everything at sony while looking amazing looking pretty boring to play except maybe the order.
I like that MS showed nothing but games, UBI also had a good show.
On what planet is Halo: The Master Chief Collection a "high octane exclusive" comparable to Uncharted 4? It has more in common with the TLoU re-release. Not a bad article otherwise. The writer is too good for FailingBolt.
What XB1 game is in the pic never heard of it , oh wait trying to cross promote on pages again it just comes across trashy.
E3 IS NOT A TOURNAMENT WITH A WINNER. THE GAMERS ARE THE WINNERS. ANYONE WHO ARGUES ANY CONSOLE IS BETTER, OR THAT ONE IS SHIT, IS A COMPLETE LOSER. CONSOLES ARE NOT A COMPETITION. IF I COULD AFFORD TO, I WOULD OWN THEM ALL, SO I COULD PLAY EVERYTHING, AND EVENTUALLY I WILL.
haha even funnier, some dolt clicked disagree. Its a fact. Not a competition.
Microsoft! next question.
Um, yes... have you lost yo God damn mind?!
Microsoft had the best shwo for exclusive content, Sony had the better show for multiplatform games. Nintendo had a few good looking games but the money grab with those stupid figures with memory was just lame. also what has Sony been doing their are real slim pickings for exclusive games this year.
Sony's games look the most impressive by far. They have the most hype surrounding them. FYI.
Long wait coming. Most of them are all coming next year. Drive Club looks really good but at this point I am jaded towards the game since it was the reason I bought a PS4 and it has been delayed almost a year.
"their are real slim pickings for exclusive games this year." You mean like the 360 for the last few years? Oh come on, it's not that bad. Sony isn't just going to blow their whole load at once like Microsoft. There's still TGS and Gamescom which I'm petty sure MS doesn't even attend. They could've shown what Media Molecule, Santa Monica, Bend Studios, Quantic Dream, ect. have been working on, but apparently that wasn't necessary. Sony were holding back and Microsoft gave their best shot just to be on par.
As much as I love Sony products, hardware and software, Nintendo's presentation was more within my interest in terms of the games I like to play. Sony didn't play it safe and I feel like the pay off fell through, while Nintendo needed to reassure its share holders and customers and met their marks.
For me Sony won. Microsoft had a pretty good one too. Both were a bit disappointing though. Nintendo's was just bad. Nothing of interest.
This E3 just made me want to get a Wii U even more.
What did they win?
