Microsoft did its best, but Sony brought enough nukes to end any Cold War. It’s coming. It’s all coming.
I think sony had the best e3 press conference. Uncharted 4, and horizon looked amazing. The last guardian looks good and was a surprise to a lot.
Sony didn't even have time to announce all the games in their conference, R&C shown before E3 and Heavy Rain+B2S announced after E3 and the Square Enix conference was mostly a Sony exclusive showcase
Microsoft was in the same boat: Scalebound Quantem Break Crackdown Phantom Dust Saving some for gamerscom after all :D
Once they announced FF7 remake. It was over. Sony just killed it and Uncharted 4's game-play was awesome with its destructible environments and almost open world feel to it as well :-)
i think the thing was Sony showed alot of actual gameplay. MS showed a gears of war that hardly anyone could see it was so dark,a Tomb raider section that was terrible imo and nothing that really blew me away. backwards compatability was HUGEthough imo. on other hand Sony want me to pay £4.99(3 days)/£9.99 30 days) playing a game i already bought on ps3. but when games like batman,horizon,black ops i like look of for once,ff7,UC4 etc i doubt i be wanting to play many old games anyway. i did prefer ubi game reveals though,but we all know they aint gonna be like that on release lol,GHOST RECON!!!!!!!!! OMFG
In order to disagree with this article. I'm sure many where crying at Microsofts conference.
Sony fan boys are in denial... Bethesda>Microsoft>EA> ;Ubisoft>Sqaure Enix>Nintendo>Sony
Sony fanboy's in denial? Pot meet kettle, please
Lmao! The media is totally singing a different tune!
I thought I told you not to take more than 1 puff!
As an Xbox gamer, how about you stop
Dont worry, we know youre not all the same as this guy.
everyone has an opinion. I just feel like Sonys presentation wasn't good enough.
Oh... the irony...
Someone just worked out what Ctrl+C Ctrl+V does.
@hysteria94 LOL...what a fart eater this troll is!!! Here you go fart eater, from the article, which is pretty much the sentiment of every gaming site, and the vast majority of gamers, LOL "Poor old Microsoft. After delivering an excellent, worthy press conference at E3 earlier on Monday, Sony dropped a barnstorming performance consisting of a barrage of hits so violent even the sternest of opponents would have dragged itself off to bed with a bloody nose.....When The Last Guardian came out as lead, replete with full gameplay and a 2016 release date, a man behind me shouted, “I’m gonna fucking cry.” No one was saying that in the Microsoft press event. What followed was an exercise in pure fan service. The crowd, at points, was on its feet." Nuff said.
So when are you all going to be playing Final Fantasy? Horizon? The last Guardian? and I wont even go on about Shenmue...I psyched for it, but realistically it will be 2-3 years just for that one. Conference didnt give any love to Morpheus or the Vita and oh yeah..TV
When? Before you, that's for damn sure. When are you gonna be playing ANY exclusive this year?
On both my consoles and my PC...only before me if you you load yours faster.
I thought Microsoft had a really good show. Halo 5, Tomb Raider and Gears 4 looked like a lot of fun and the Backwards compatibility announcement was great for former 360 owners. Honestly the way Xbox One is now is how they should have been at launch and they would be in much better shape. Phil Spencer has done an excellent job bringing credibility back after Don Mattrick nearly single handily destroyed it out the gate. Sony had the best conference of all to me though. Final fantasy 7, Shenmue 3, Uncharted 4, and Horizon were killers. And The last Guardian looks epic as well.
Agreed. I was very impressed with MS's show... But SONY... Just WOW
Yup, exactly this. Microsoft did some great things this E3. It was as close to a Mia Culpa as one could expect. Backwards capadibility, Halo 5, Gears 4, Tomb Raider will make it a strong offering going into this holiday season. These announcments would usually "win" E3 and most people were really impressed after the conference. Then came Sony. Holy Eff. Though they did leave a gap for this holiday season (and I do think Xbox gains some ground), Sony just decided to drink the koolaid out of the gamer punch bowl and give us what we wanted. By the end, I almost expected to see Half Life 3 to be announced just to round off the most "delivered" E3 conference ever. Regardless, both companies did a great job with MS really turning their ship around and Sony really continuing their bet on the fact that if you make games and consoles for gamers, the sales will come. Was a great e3.
Too bad the BC thing wasn't true BC. With real BC you can put in any disc and play, even if offline. This is actually MS recompiling select games then letting you download them from the internet if you have a disc to verify you own it. It isn't real emulation as the X1 CPU is X86 at 1.75 GHz compared to the 360 Power PC at 3.2 GHz. It is better than Sony's BC which is zero but still it is a bit of a hack.
Sony easily had the best conference
Sony's just killed it. Great work.
Soooo.... Now it's not about exclusives? Especially the ones we can play this year? I definitely didn't see this coming... I watched both of them before checking out reactions, and quite honestly I must of watched something completely different but I guess that's why it's called an opinion.
For E3 I want surpises but that is just my opinion. MS had a couple but Sony's were bigger and better.
Yup... Just a couple.. I mean I remember Sony fanatics going crazy for bc but since it wasn't Sony that delivered it means nothing now.. That amazing controller.. Exclusive after exclusive coming this year.. Holo lens... Valve partner ship with windows... I mean c'mon sonys was good but seriously what exclusive did they announce for this year? Last guardian still didn't get a release date! But hey it is what it is .. At the end of the day I have both consoles and I know which one will get most of my time.. Lmfao! How much longer you think n4g is going to have that opinion article on "find out when uc4 will release" lol
Sony have a lot of announced games with no release dates yet. Many of these exclusives\console exclusives/timed exclusives should release in the second half of this year: No Man's Sky, Firewatch, The Tomorrow Children, Rime, Abzu, The Witness, The Forest, Persona 5, Killing Floor 2, WiLD, The Vanishing of Ethan Carter, Drawn to Death and SNOW.
2015 exclusives matter absolutely, but i have a feeling that u only like to count exclusives that come at holiday time? The rest like games all year round, so lets talk 2015 exclusives then shall we? Considering the fact that ur attacking what u think is a weak point it'll be fun. 2015 exclusives The Order 1886, BLOODBORNE, Until Dawn, God of War 3 Re, Tearaway Unfolded, The Witness, Rapture, The Nathan Drake Collection, J-Stars v Vs, Godzilla PS4, Tomorrow Children, SFIV Ult, Dungeon Defenders 2, Energy Hook, Volume, One Piece Pirate Warriors 3, Bedlam, Soma, PERSONA 5, 2 Sword Arts, Gang Beasts, Salt and Sanctuary, Project Phoenix, Distance, a bunch of Devolver games, Darkest Dungeon, invisible inc, H-Hour and wayyy more. Every game except 2 have yet to release and are all slated for 2015, most are PS4 exclusive, but all are either console or Sony exclusive meaning NONE will be on xbox. All look good except maybe Godzilla. I missed a bunch. Darksidrs 2 definitive is listed as PS4, not xbox and 2015. Granted 2016 is mind blowing for Sony, there are plenty of "exclusives" for Sony/PS4 in 2015. Persona 5, Drake Collection, Soma, Until Dawn, No Man's Sky (if it makes 2015), Tomorrow Children, Rapture and The Forest are some of the exclusives/console exclusives i'm hyped for. Sony won e3 hands down.
Since when is E3 suppose to be for the end year games only?.
Honestly, I'm happy horizon and last guardian are coming in 2016. With MGS5 releasing right before the holidays and fallout 4 and starwars battlefront coming right smack dab in the middle of it. I just don't have the time for exclusives. definitely picking up forza 6 but i'm saving tomb raider, halo 5 and the Nathan Drake collection for 2016 anyways.
I agree, third party games are loaded this holiday. Once Fallout 4 was annouced this year I didn't need anything else.
Definitely! Heck I even forgot about Until Dawn releasing right before MGS5, Probably saving that one for down the line too.
After watching MS's conference, I really had the feeling SONY was gonna fail hard... And then they blew the doors off of E3..
It must've been really awkward for Nintendo to follow up after Sony's and Microsoft's epic conferences
As much as I'm looking forward to horizon from GG, who is one of my favorite devs, not much else blew me away from sony. I'm definitely in the minority, at least on this site that is not excited for the last guardian or Shenmue, those games seem aimed at a niche market and won't get many excited, off this site which is obviously pro sony anything. UC4 while great is honestly just looking like a prettier version of what we've already played, which is great but hardly enough for me to get excited about. and seeing as none of those are coming out anytime soon I just can't say they won anything or gave reason to rush out and upgrade. might as well continue waiting, at least until November.
I love it. MS shows the most impressive piece of gaming tech and then sony shows a bunch of games that everyone on this site is nostolgic for, so therefore sony won. Smh.
LMAO, you're kidding me, right?
As a PS4 owner I disagree. I think Microsoft destroyed. Morpheus wasn't even shown at all. They had no new peripherals or hardware to show. The only thing that is getting people talking about Sony is FF7. Then I watched MS and they have that Holo deal with Minecraft which looked damn legit and a new game pad... i'm jelly.
Sony is obviously desperate..... Not in an "we're about to go out of business" kind of way.... But they had nothing to go against Microsoft really... I mean Shenmue 3?? REALLY!? And they can't even shell out the money for it!? What a lame lame thing to publicize and embarrass yourself with... Clearly they do not think too highly of Shenmue.... Uncharted 4? Sure, looks fine.... But really, not so far and away separated from Uncharted 2 and 3.... Same thing, just more polished... FF7? Not exclusive.... The last guardian?? Looks fun... but it's been nearly 7 years....it doesn't look insanely different than it did in the ps3 days...and frankly I've lost interest.. There are a bunch of 3rd party... But those don't generally sell systems... There was that MM game that nearly put me to sleep.... Honestly after having watched Microsoft's conference... my son and I could hardly hold our heads up and stay awake for Sony's conference....
Microsoft is desperate to cover up the lack of games throughout the year by putting its big games in the last quarter of the year.
I really enjoyed Sonys conference. :)
