Dan, joe and their special guests Mj, and Max talk about what the big announcements for E3 will be, and which conference will steal the show! (This podcast was recorded on 5.17.15)
This really should be the answer...and so far based on the games getting early announcements I would say we the gamer are indeed the only "true" winner of E3.
Way to early to call who will win let's watch the shows first before we call winners.
* Currently gaming on XB1, Wii U, PSP, N3DSXL, PC, Vita I can't wait for E3.....so many games I'll be able to play and find out about. It's like information Christmas.
Then you'll win no matter what. I haven't picked up a current gen console yet and just game on PC, but I'll watch all the conferences with anticipation of great games exclusive or not. E3 is just a fun time to be a gamer.
The people who run E3. They'll make a ton of money off all these companies.:) Gamers FTW!
Gamers always win E3. Yet there is always a conference that steals the show. Two years ago Sony captured the spark of gamers world. The real question of who "wins" E3 is really who is able to capture everyone's attention at E3, in one way or form. I think it is go to be Bethesda. But who knows!? I think this E3 could be the best we've seen.
Sony won E3 2013 even though i think Microsoft had a better game launch line up. E32014 Microsoft won they showed more than Sony E32015 has not happened yet, but i think Microsoft will have better E3 than last year.
So many disagrees for KNWS and yet no logical rebuttle, to challenge this notion..figures. I agree for the record. MS launch games were better. But sony's E3 2013 'win' was kind of a forgone conclusion given the shit tonne of a PR mess, MS was in. All sony had to do was say they were not doing the things in the original xbox reveal to win. Their big moment was announcing you could trade games. Talk about an easy goal! I bought the Ps4 first based off that E3. But forza, DR3, ryse and killer instinct were more appealing titles than KZ:shadowfall, knack and resogun. E3 2014...MS delivered promises of games and delivered on those promises. FH2, MCC SSOD, and ori have all been critical successes, as well as quality games. Bloodborne is the only game from sony's E3 2014 to impress. DC and the order being particularly mediocre inspite of their graphical finesse. MS E3 2015 looks like it will be even more ram packed than last years. So its a given that MS E3 this year will be even better. This is one thing that is a given at this point. even without bringing rival platforms into the equation.
Actually most websites and gamers though Nintendo had ummmm better games, less pr speak, less cgi, I mean Zelda was shown, slaptoon was shown, smash tournament over 8hrs of live gameplay. This was after watchdog gate, then drive club came, ms big guns didn't move any one price did. The HD twins are a mess. Yet ms hololens will be pretty cool, so is win 10. So far ms and Sony have been a bust. They need real games that are addictive not just pretty. A morphious vr would be spreading Sony first party to far I believe since they couldn't even support the ps4 eye or move or the vita.
There is no doubt MS always has a fantastic E3 but it's far from unanimous that any company wins an E3. All opinions. Adding to that, if MS truly "wins" all these E3's with their incredible line up's there wouldn't be 2:1 gap.
I didn't disagree with him, but he didn't really provide any arguments for his choices either. E3 2014 was pretty boring. Most people think Nintendo won the show. Microsoft was last based on IGN polls.
@KNWS I agree that MS turn to win this E3.O that these increases chance and line up "weak" said the sony own.
In my opinion (and many others' ) it was Nintendo who ran away with the show last year. You seem to be forgetting about them completely. As for this year, I have no idea, it can be anyone's show.
Yea Nintendo had the Tree House segments, the Nintendo Direct and the Smash Tournament. They very much "won" last years E3 hands down so I dont know what you are talking about !!
Bethesda already won. Pack up and go home, people.
Game gear!! Woohoo!!......just kidding! But whoever owns all three consoles will win! XD
Well, 5 counting the handhelds...and a gaming PC because you've got the PC software showcase.
Oops my bad all five. Who ever owns all five.^^
I think this year the gaming community as a whole will. I have a feeling that everyone is going to bring their A game this year.
Inb4 N4G says some Gamers thingy. Oh, someone already did.
Yep. Every year. Haha.
Nintendo. (They usually win.) Sony. (Usually show a few good things in a sea of boring filler.) Microsoft. (Meh show and dislikable speakers.)
It's funny really. Everyone considers Nintendo as the underdog since their console isn't as advanced and they have sold much. But other than that...those same people say sales and hardware don't matter any other time it's brought up? Interesting.... Nintendo really are the ones that bring the games year after year. It's always been like that, there's really no arguing about it. Hope they have a great E3 again!
They knocked it out of the park 2014 and 2015 could be the same, but E3 2011,2012 and 2013 were pretty bad from them. 2011: awful Wii U reveal 2012: mostly late third party games for Wii U launch 2013: good games, but Iwata alone in a room speaking broken english 2014: no padding, all real-time gameplay, new IP's, not afraid to laugh at themselves. Best e3 in years.
I'm really looking forward to seeing what the new Gears will be like, Scalebound and if the cloud will actually work for Crackdown. I'm super curious to see what Nintendo is going to do. Like that is the presentation I am really looking to see.
Honestly don't know. I hope all 3 have big surprises for E3.
Third year in a row I'm excited for Nintendo. They have delivered on their "hyped" announced games consecutively.
Excited to see some new just cause 3 gameplay. Allso the division
The gamers will definitely be winners this year, no doubt. We'll have to wait and see what the Big 4 show this year. Remember there will be a PC conference as well this year. I'm excited. It's a great time to be a gamer.
I always enjoy E3 but seems like everything is leaked before it hits nowadays. Hope there are some genuine surprises. Worst thing about E3....those who use the word 'megaton'.
And if it isn't a leak, it is the corporation purposefully announcing things. Like why weren't Fallout 4 and Uncharted Remaster kept secret for a couple more weeks?
I win. As far as I'm concerned, the "winner" of the three platform makers will be Microsoft. There is no alternative. I can see people who prefer JRPGs and Japanese games going with Sony, and younger ppl going Nintendo. My bullet riddled fuel-injected western blood obligates me towards MS' games.
I'm sorry, but that's just stupid. You just named a bunch of stereotypes to try and justify fanboyism.
Maybe it would help if you cried about it some more?
Other than the generic "gamers win E3 comment". If we are talking about the company, if this year is anything like last year, Nintendo will win again.
I usually think Nintendo wins as well but without Zelda this year I hope they bring something big, maybe metroid?
They wouldn't have left Zelda out if they didn't have a plan to fill the gap. They've made some bad decisions in the past but they're not stupid :P
@R00bot I agree, i just want that gap to be filled by metroid :P
I win every E3 , it's my wallet that lose every year around June . Poor basted . lol
No one will win because E3 isn't a contest, race, or sport. it's a video game expo, nothing more.
I don't know when an expo suddenly became a competition and I don't particularly care. What I care about is that one way or the other, it's going to be freaking awesome!
I have to go into this year thinking that MS will win hands down. They have been hyping this show like no other. They are already calling it the best lineup in Xbox history, and Phil has been tweeting saying that they have surprise announcements. We shall wait and see though.
I think Microsoft will give gamers the most to be excited for. They're really the only ones from the big 3 releasing anything of interest in terms of exclusives this year. We'll have to see how Star Fox though....idk if it'll be enough to save them but I love me some barrel rolls Sony has a lot to prove. After the lackluster releases of The Order and LBP3 I'm hoping they can shake things up with some real content. I'd die for a Heavenly Sword(Maybe Hell Blade will satisfy me but or Jak and Daxter Sequel
If Sony wins it will be by impressing people with Morpheus. I can't imagine Sony having many other big announcements considering Uncharted Collection was leaked early. I do hope they add some value to PS Now.
It was leaked a night early...they were adding it to the store when it was accidentally pushed live. It was not an E3 announcement.
Gamers? ;) I know I will win E3 for sure since I game on PS4, Wii U, PC, Vita, The New 3DS, 3DSXL and X1 this generation and I can't skip a single game.
real answer as everybody is saying. Gamers. substitute answer. Bethesda.
Trite comments about gamers winning e3 aside, the winner will be the one who will have more exclusives out by the holiday season.
The winners are those who genuinely enjoy gaming and not worry about "which company will win". I for one am ready for E3 to see what is in store. I have all the current-gen consoles (Yes, including the WiiU), and my PC. bring it on (:
Unless they announce some Dragon Quest localization, we're all gonna be looooooooosers.
Bethesda is going to win this, hands down.
The 3 announcements i am excited from the big 3 goes as follows. I want to see the Bloodborne Expansion at the Sony Conference. I want to see Gears at Microsoft's Conference. Most importantly though i want Nintendo release the next Star Fox game! If all those things happens i'll be one happy gamer!
