Why Sony Won E3 2014

Microsoft did a decent job this E3, and have made considerable effort to mop up the mess from that disastrous Xbox One unveiling last year. Their conference was tight and lean, throwing out game after game with only the barest minimum of tedious waffle. I applaud Phil Spencer's direction and leadership since he inherited the captain's seat, and after this week I honestly believe the Xbox One will, at some point, have a bright and rosy future. But, with all that being said, Sony came out ahead at E3 2014.

Sony won me over with Bloodborne, Uncharted 4, and LBP 3. I think they had a solid presentation, but the TV and Statistics portions ruined the pace of the show.

I don't think they won, but they didn't lose either. Nintendo, on the other hand, really delivered. They are the true winners for me, while Sony and Microsoft were even.

PS4 is gonna have a great holyday. Can't wait!
Driveclub, LBP3, Destiny, Far Cry 4, and The Last of Us are in my radar!

Why I'm tired of seeing countless opinion article after opinion article about why someone thinks some company "won" a game industry trade show.

The amount of games for the ps4 is overwhelming when it comes to indie titles. It is not a question of money, quality, time or trophies. But wether or not I wjll be able to remember each game. However I think most of what was not shown during the main e3 conference for Sony has me waiting in anticipation for: counter spy, that morpheus game deep, morpheus itself, drive club, uncharted 4, the order 1886, and some of the various other indie titles.

@Frosty Same here but while we're at it I wonder why they haven't approved of this so fast like they did this piece? And are dragging their feet on this this article?

Its almost like "uhhh do we have approve of this? ok we'll eventually get to it."

Other than that if Sony shortend the Tv stuff they would of been even better. blood Borne, UC4, and No Man's Sky are the clear highlights of the show.

sinspirit1682d ago


Yea, because we haven't already had several "Microsoft Won e3" articles! Oh.. Wait!

Yes, this is such a biased site! There are tons of XBox fans on this site. Dozens and dozens. Blame them for not going to the approval section. Or do you think XBox fans can't be blamed for not approving positive articles about their own console?

Microsoft did a much better job, and they didn't even show off the flagship title Halo 5. Master Chief Collection was incredible, game of show easily, and that says a lot being a remake. Uncharted didn't even come close.

E3 2014 Master Chief vs Nathan Drake (graphic, Game of Thrones spoiler)

DarXyde1682d ago

Stop talking. Seriously. The Last of Us Remastered and GTA V didn't beat anything new, simply because the experiences have already been enjoyed by a ton of people. The same applies to the Master Chief Collection.

Play your games and stop watching what you don't want.

Skips1682d ago (Edited 1682d ago )

Your Gif is what I'm pretty sure Kratos would do to Master Chief. Right after he did this of course. lmao

If you're speaking on technical terms. Halo 4 couldn't even come close to Uncharted 3 let alone The Last Of Us. You thinking "Halo 5 > U4" is downright laughable. XD

Magicite1682d ago

Uncharted 4 will become GOTY and gonna demolish anything MS 1st party studio can bring.

Then again, should one certain company win a press conference matter in the grand scheme of things. There are still more games coming out for PS4, Xbone, WiiU and handhelds. It's not like the ones announced in a weeks time are the ONLY games coming to a gaming system near you or anything.

BullyMangler1682d ago

ha ha haa . you guys are still acting like Sony won E3?

i mean just Bayonetta 2 gameplay puts both Sony and micro presentations to shame .

but whatever makes yall feel better lol

G20WLY1682d ago

Bayonetta was good...back in the day.

But it didn't hold my attention to the end and it was camper than a field of tents...

B2 looks like more of the same, which is to say, good, but not a big deal and certainly not best-in-show by any stretch of the imagination.

Just went to best buy earlier and pre ordered the white ps4 bundle. Can't wait!! :)

XiNarutoUzumaki1683d ago (Edited 1683d ago )

Kiss Dat Sexy white PS4 for me when you got it will ya?

XiSasukeUchiha1679d ago

Naruto should you be kissing your ramen first then the PS4 lol

miyamoto1683d ago (Edited 1683d ago )

Bloodborne, Uncharted 4, LBP3, The Order 1886, TLOU Remastered, White PS4, PlayStation TV, PlayStation Now, and....

Multi Plat games like FarCry 4, GTA V, MGS V: Phantom Pain, Destiny, AC: Unity, The Divison, COD Advanced War, Batman: Arkham Knight, The Witcher, etc. etc. that are all guaranteed to look and run BETTER on PS4 are so many reasons PlayStation had a phenomenal showing at E3 2014.

Hey don't forget planetside 2,
Guilty gear xrd, deep down, kh2.5, tales of xillia 2

CoryHG1683d ago

How can dude at top say they not won? They clearly had more to offer than the others. Microsoft was a joke, they played it safe, but nothing interesting and no Halo 5 (and the collectors edition will give fanboys something)

ats19921683d ago

Opinions everywhere just like what you just said is an opinion.

oODEADPOOLOo1683d ago (Edited 1682d ago )

They all played it safe, nintendo was only one ambitious enough to do more then the average expectation compared to other two. Sony had painfully average and at times boring and inconsistent press conference. MS conference was almost all multiplat footage, and their biggest selling point was a rehash of previous halos, lol. Was waiting for uncharted demo for the entire sony press conference and when it finally came up, no gameplay just a close up of nathan drakes face for 30 seconds...come on!

If they wanted a kickass E3 Sony could have done had this:

The return of Kevin Butler on stage and narrating through most of presentation bringing energy and hype throughout. same intro with destiny but with butler narrating. PS Vita/PS4 bundle officially announced and available same day. New Crash bandicoot racing game announced. If they have to talk Movies/TV Announce something more easily recognizable like a reveal for new resident evil movie coming soon, maybe even a teaser for the return of starship troopers . Which would basically be dual promoting since they own both franchises and follow up with special discounts to new Sony movies like starship troopers and resident evil for PS plus subs.Playstation allstars sequel announced. Planetside 2 beta avialable today, with full release sometime in fall. Exclusive playstation content and pre order bonus for metal gear for ps4. A longer Uncharted 4 trailer with 5 minute gameplay. Before finally finishing with a new kevin butler ad for ps4 with kickass music

CoryHG1682d ago

The Kevin Butler request is a fantasy. They probably should've given everyone there a free white ps4 too.

Mortal Kombat, Batman, and dropping straight into little big planet 3, AND HAVING IT PLAYABLE on the floor. Don't forget, Hardline beta was exlclusive to PS4 as well.

oODEADPOOLOo1682d ago (Edited 1682d ago )


The whole alternate scenario is a fantasy, because what sony actually did was boring as hell. The multiplats did a better job of showing gameplay then the actual first party games. And hardline really? that game is nothing but a reskin of BF4, I already have it and premium not gonna be buying a 2.0 version. LBP 3 is ok but its not on the same level as the other first party games.

AngelicIceDiamond1682d ago (Edited 1682d ago )

@feld Maybe to you but I'm sure any rational gamer would disagree.

Jury1683d ago

Like the spurs, too much depth for their opponents.

our_games_are_art1683d ago

Bubble for a sports reference lots of gamers on these sites hate sports! In my experience at least :[

memots1683d ago

ya its the anti-jock mentality :P

Nerd are breed to be afraid of jocks

zeuanimals1682d ago (Edited 1682d ago )

Time for Lebron to find a new team. Lol

It's also Tim Duncan's 5th Championship with the Spurs, he might catch up to Jordan's 6 rings with Chicago. Don't know about going above 6 though.
