Sony won E3 by letting their games do the talking

Alex Gibson from WGTC writes "Sony has once again demonstrated that they know exactly how to win over the gaming community, and it isn’t with teraflops.
After tonight, the PlayStation 4’s games library has never looked more rock solid, and the conference reiterated Sony’s imperative for the console to be built around a substantial offering of exclusive content. The messaging is clear; games, games and more games. "

Pretty much. It was one of the best E3 conferences I have ever seen.

basilboxer2961d ago

Fully agree. That was easily the best conference ever because it was about games. This is what we want to see!

thekhurg2961d ago

Yep. There was such a minimal amount of blabbering that it was epic seeing all the game presentations. Well done Sony.

nX2961d ago

They not only won this E3, they've almost outdone all the other publishers combined. I never expected to see so many games I literally can't wait to play myself, Sony is going berserk on my wallet.

AnubisG2961d ago

Let's hope they keep this up. From God of War to Crash Bandicoot trilogy remake, Kojima game, Horizon, Days Gone, etc. Totally killed it. For me this was the best ever E3 press conference ever.

These articles pop up every year. At the end of every show Sony won the show to Playstation fans, Microsoft won the show for Xbox fans and Nintendo won the show for Nintendo fans.

LOL dude the first article I had seen after MS' conference was about how big of a let down it was......from septic's site, then I had seen at least 3 more negative articles after that.

Guess your a bit wrong.

Sony's conference was amazing to watch, would have loved to have been there. So many great games coming.


No, Sony really did have the best conference.

The God Of War reveal had to be the best part about it. It was such a surprise seeing Kratos

kneon2961d ago

If E3 were a boxing match then Sony would have had a KO in the first round with the GOW reveal. But instead they just kept pounding their now unconscious competitors round after round after round.

Their conference was so much better than I was expecting.

PaleMoonDeath2961d ago

If that's how fast they done it, MMA is better suited for such brutality. Very, very pleased with this years Sony E3! finally.. I have a bunch of games I MUST get.

Shubhendu_Singh2961d ago

I really do hate when Publisher invites Developers to talk on stage and all they do is describe how "immersive" or "iconic" their game will be without giving any details.

Atleast Sony showed the real gameplay outright. This is exactly what I want from E3, not Devtalks and youtubers.

FrostedFire2961d ago

No truer words have ever been said.I hate the vague dev talks that Ubisoft did on their stage that told us little to nothing about them and just killed time.Their conference was just like their Assassins Creed series,with some good parts riddled in between but mostly consisting of "why would you do that?".

mafiahajeri2961d ago

That's not to bad, I mean the dev talks but when you get someone as annoying as Aeisha Tyler trying to crack lameass jokes and where she asks people to go suck a big bag of you know what. Then seriously GTFO with that shit...

I mean she just kept going on and on it turned into some lame stand up gig, she was also pretty damn hostile. Ubisoft and the rest take notes from Sony because you clearly do not know how to host an E3 conference.

kneon2961d ago

It wouldn't be so bad except that most developers are terrible public speakers, I know, I'm a developer who has had to do a lot of public speaking all over the world.

Most developers just aren't that engaging, it's better to let their work do the talking.

I_am_Batman2961d ago

It was a near perfect conference. They've set the tone from the first second the orchestra started playing. Then it was hit after hit after hit. Sony schooled them all this year. Well done.

C-H-E-F2961d ago

Yes, they just keep topping themselves year over year. Like this was like a Game Cinema hahaha. No details about much, just hey look at these cool games... here's the release date... more cool games.... check out VR it'll cost 399.... and will be released in october... more cool games... release date... more cool games... etc. etc. hahaha

trooper_2961d ago

Agreed. Game after game after game. Now that my uncle finally got a PS4, I can't wait to play them.

Crazyglues2961d ago (Edited 2961d ago )

By showing nothing but games, Sony knocked this thing out the park... that was a spectacular show, and -DaysGone- Looked Amazing -Complete surprise -- Just one hell of a show

That was absolutely amazing. Destroyed Microsoft.

Double_O_Revan2961d ago

It was just hit after hit without letting up. No one came out to talk in between, no pauses, just 'here's a game, and here's a game, oh you want another game? Here's some more!'

Amazing event. I thought it would be hard to do, but they blew away what they even did last year.

Gardenia2961d ago

No weird cringing shows, just games and more games. Also the live orchestra was really awesome

remixx1162961d ago

The mine craft and FFXIV demos were cringe worthy. Also I didn't think it was possible to create a dude bro jrpg but it seems like scale bound will be the first...

I dont think anyone won. We know Ms has a new elite controller/xbox 1 s/custom order controllers/new games/ project scorpio. Sony has new games/psvr/a scuf controller. My issue is this, the majority of sony's games come out in 2017. Nothing too major was showed for 2016, majority of Ms games are sep or oct 2016 but the only game that show cased any graphical strength was gears 4. I guess it all comes down to what u prefer and in what time frame. Both had good showings but nothing amazing.
