A roundup of news and shown titles at Sony's E3 2009 conference.
Yeah Sony's a B+. I'd say MS gets a B+ as well. Both had a strong exclusive line up as well as the multiplatform titles that we want. Nintendo gets a D from me. The only game I want to play is New Super Mario. Edit: Scratch that, I also want to play the conduit and metroid other m.
Sony: A MS: C Ninty: D
The Single Biggest Ownage In E3 History: * Kojima coming out on stage and flat out stating he has nothing to do with MGS: Rising and that it isn't a real Metal Gear game. Multiple megatons: FFXIV PS3 Exclusive Rockstar PS3 Exclusive Massive PS3 Exclusives: Team ICO's amazing The Last Guardian MAG live 256 player demo - 2009 release God of War 3 live demo - March release The incredibly cool kart racer GT5 unveiling Gran Turismo PSP Resident Evil PSP Sony's conference could have easily been four hours long they have such a mind boggling amount of games and content for PS2,PS3, and PSP. Heavy Rain, the secret BBC game, Syphon Filter PS3, etc. will all have to wait for TGS or other Sony events this year. B+, LOL. No, A is the only honest grade. With an A+ for something epic like a FFVII remake unveiling only topping this amazing Sony E3 event.
The way I see it... MS - A Show Sony - A Conference Nintendo - ??? + Mario + Matriod - Zelda = ??? Can't really put a mark on any of them -.-
I honestly thought that Sony would pull it off, and spank MS's conference all over the place. Instead it pulled off something very similar to what MS offered, with some statistics of sales thrown in. I was a little disappointed that of the '35 Exclusives' that Sony claimed they had, they only shown a handful. Good Points: Uncharted 2 & God of War 3 - looked fantasic and can't wait to play The Last Guardian - Can't wait..Team Ico go!! MGS PSP (YES!) Mediorce points: P SP Go! - looks like a nice piece of kit, but $250!? Assassin's Creed 2 - looked like the first, nothing really stood out apart from the double guard kill Final Fantasy 14 Online - Exclusive? FF13 WAS an Exclusive! Hmmmm Wii Remote Clone....very Wii like, and looked very forced...probably caused after seeing MS's new Motion Control project. Bad Points: No Heavy Rain No LBP PSP demo No info on new PSN games MAG - looked very cluttered onscreen, especially with the bullet detector thingy going on in the middle, put me off. Overall, MS and Sony get a 7/10 from me, Nintendo a 3/10.
here is the thing the reason why the sony conference wasnt as great as it was said to be was because well its simple we knew what to expect. if we didnt hear about the psp go or seen that ico trailer it would feel like they woulve been megaton announcements. since we knew what we were gonna see people thought there was gonna be even more which there was and also there wasnt
Sony really didnt do as "I" would of liked. I really wanted some more PSN features. We know they got the games but I wanted to see more beyond the games. I would Rate Sony B+ Microsoft A Nintendo C
I agree with Omega. MS wins it for the show, and always good for a surprise. Sony with the solid high quality content, but never any surprise. Nintendo had a strong finish with hard core content, makes me want to get these games (Conduit and the new Metroid looked good), but the rest was, err, yahhhwn, yeah, like that. Sony's motion presentation was obviously a quick patch to answer Natal, but after my first though this is a gimmick, I actually like the precision of these "stick" more then Natal with pure image recognition. Its Natal meets Wii-Motion(Plus). I think there's one important point that guy mentioned: "These controls won't work without any buttons". But I don't think that thing will ever hit the shelfs. It would require some mainstream games to support it, not just some special implementation. Will not happen, IMO. That SONY racing game looked like a gimmick, too. But that level construction kit was pretty impressive. Well, and GoW3, UC2, GT5, ICO, ... these are 4 impressive titles right there. No need to surprise, but still impressive. Forza3 on MS side looked good, I curious about Halo Reach and well, MGS Rising. But no live gameplay of any of those at the press conference. In short I give Sony a little bit of an edge (because of the rock solid line up and presentation) slightly ahead of MS, and well, yeah, Nintendo surprised with some more gamer centric announcements, maybe a comeback ? But still 3rd right now.
"It's a tie!!!" LOL! What did Microsoft have? * Their 'big game' and 'amazing end of conference unveiling' turns out to be a crappy multiplatform action spinoff that the creator of the series mocks and disowns the very next day * Wiimote/Eyetoy copies * Alan Wake looking like just another Resident Evil game with very average graphics * Crackdown 2 exclusive - lol! * Halo milking Yeah, it was a 'tie' LOL!
MS a B Ninty - Fail Sony showed game after game which was expected, but then announces 3 new ip one by R* one is FF14 and Modnation racers next LBP esque game. Not to mention the camera (which seemed rushed out) but the percision is what gamers want. The mix of the camera and controller clearly has the most GAMING potential. It was an onslaught of games alot with in game footage (U2, The Last Guardian, AC2 and GOW3) Clearly best of the show. Edit: Gran Turismo 5 has NASCAR and World Rally Championship as well. GT portable has 800 cars and photo realistic graphics a HANDHELD GAME!! come on! Sony wins FLAWLESS VICTORY!!
Notice how all of the companies who took their franchises multi-platform earlier this gen are now going PS3 exclusive. R* SE And you'll notice, Kojima went multi-platform reluctantly, but his main efforts are still with PS3. As for Heavy Rain, there is a lot showing for it in Home. I was in Home and watching the E3 at the same time. In the Presentation space they are showing a lot of the devs and their games for ps3 on the big screen... ohh and watch for the code. Edit: as for rating the conferences: Sony: A MS: B MS would have stole E3 if they would have had more "exclusive" games. Natal has potential, but for now it feels more like a gimick. Although the Voice and Face Reconition tech is promising, both are really software related. This means that while MS might be the first to bring it to market (likely fall 2010 due to lack of release date or pricing info), the PS3 could just as easily make a similar app with a firmware update using the ps eye.
Then i guess it's safe to say that Sony has won E3 this year hands down... The best line of exclusives this year, PSP Go with three great games & full of surprises.
Sony's was definitely the best. Very clean conference with nice presentations and videos, tons of games and exclusives, announcement after announcement, reveal after reveal. Microsoft's was also very good. A lot of game announcements, a lot were multi-platform though, some nice presentations but some were cheesy like the Beatles Rock Band and such, awesome reveal of Natasha, etc. Nintendo was a failure for me. Some good stuff here and there but still mostly casual or unimpressive. Only two real hardcore games shown, Mario Galaxy 2 and it's a blatant rehash. Metroid Other M looked awesome. Sony: A+ Microsoft: B+ Nintendo: C-
the ps3 bbc game still exists??
I'll give MS an A and Sony a B, I will have to say Ms took this E3.
I'd give both Sony and MS a B. Both showed a bunch of games we already knew about, both exclusive and multiplatform for both. Both showed potentially coll motion controls that I can't really say I care for for MY gaming needs, and both promised games with no dates/no footage as their "big exclusives," (Halo Reach, Agent). Meh. Bring on Alan Wake and the utterly gorgeous Uncharted 2.
Sony A awesome line up, good features Microsoft A good lineup, awesome features Nintendo D- ... End conclusion I really can't afford all the stuff coming out.
"I agree with Omega. MS wins it for the show, and always good for a surprise." Hilarious! Yes, Microsoft did have one big 'surprise'! They game they tried to hype as their one big news: 1. Multiplatform 2. Disowned by the series creator Yes, Microsoft had the best Show...for Sony fans. It was a nice bit of comic relief before the main show started today with Sony's barrage of PS3 exclusives.
Is there anywhere where I can watch this conference again? I missed pretty much ALL of it.. Everything after M.A.G. Which, by the way, looked impressive! :O Thanks in advance. :) EDIT: Never mind, I found one.
Do you live on N4G? The reason i ask is because you seem to be the first to post in a few articles lately. Just curious. As for you're score, Sorry man. I disagree. IMHO, Microsoft took this hands down, leaks or not.(PS3 news vs X360 news)
Sony fanboys - F MS fanboys - F Nintendo fanboys - ... don't think they even exist since the Wii came out lol Seriously, I think both put up a good show, with Sony having more exclusive games, but MS's presentation seems more organized (PS3 too much content I guess?? GOWIII demo is sweet but way short). Uncharted looks amazing. Alan wake looks very promising (I really liked the presentation of the trailer, very movie like). Wish the GT5 trailer shows more, and was that trailer mostly in game footage? I much prefer this than a 1 sided "win", if there is such a thing. Competition is great.
"* Kojima coming out on stage and flat out stating he has nothing to do with MGS: Rising and that it isn't a real Metal Gear game. " Ouch! LOL! Did that really happen?!?!?
Apparently not... it's also stated to be coming to the PC. http://na.finalfantasyxiv.c... Click --> skip, and then click on - Information on the next page. You'll see: Platforms - PLAYSTATION 3, Windows You'll also see this --> Subscription Fees - TBA
sony - A why? a lot more megaton exclusive games. namely ROCKSTAR's AGENT, FF14, MGS PSP(THE TRUE SEQUEL), THE COOL LOOKING KART RACER(which compliments lbp very nicely) xbox 360 - B why? because they only have one megaton announcement w/c is a multiplatform game MGS: RISING(might be good but without a heart and soul of the maker) their other announced titles we already know about so no real surprise there. nintendo - C why? wtf! no zelda game. tsk tsk! well untill the next e3 then for big N.
Just downloaded the E3 Uncharted trailer.... Sony won E3 from that trailer alone!!! That game tops every game and they showed a lot of in-game. Yes MS fanboys, they actually showed the game... running! MS should try showing gameplay at their presentations!
I give it a B- or C+ Nintendo Gets an F
Agreed on Nintendo.
I'll give MS:B nintendo:F SONY:B+
Nintendo D- MS B- Sony A++
where is the ps3 slim sev....u were wrong!!!!
But but You'll see at E3. But seriously, he was wrong now we can move on and he can move on. Plus when you look at facts it makes no sense to make a slim ps3 when you have to sell the current sku's.
From my info, it was supposed to be at E3. It is real. 100%. Must not have been ready or they wanted to focus on other stuff. You will all see eventually. I wont be replying anymore than this, I am much too busy at E3. Regardless if I was wrong about it being at E3, I still brought you PSP GO, and Project Trico aka The Last Guardian.
hey you can't win em all, but hey sev can you like err get me a beta code for M.A.G.? *wink*
Sev is definitely trustworthy. Let's not forget who had the first footage of the trico game and guess where we eventually saw it? E3. Great Conference today for Sony. But we can all agree that NINTENDO is MIA
Microsoft: A+ Nintendo: D Sony: B
Sorry but Sony deserves a U (for unclassified), where were the release dates, No Heavy Rain = 2010 release, FFXIV MMO, Me too wii control it was painful to watch
It's painful to watch? Do you have a life, I mean really that makes no sense.
I was a little underwhelmed by Sony's conference. They had some neat things, sure, but nothing that really kicked my ass. The absence of Heavy Rain was crushing. And I'm not hating on the PS3, either. The 360 had a decent show too, but nothing to make me cream my jeans.
I think that's Microsoft tiny d!ck up your small butthole that's causing your pain. Better pull it out quick, unless........you enjoy it?! :S
and I think they gave a a time it would be released around (like fall of this year or spring of next year) I can't recall exactly though. Edit: I can't believe nobody saw the Heavy Rain demo on their special presentation on G4 tv after the Sony Conference... it was brand new demo played live there, it was freakin awesome.
it looked alot like the demo they debuted on GTTV. For all the people dissing the PS motion controller... "you wanna know what the bottom off an avatar's shoe looks like? BAM! there it is (avatar's leg has a seizure)" - Kudo Tsonoda -E3 09
Heavy rain was confirmed for early 2010 release on G4 by cage
I give MS = B Nintendo = F Sony = B+
aka "Let's start another fanboy war!!"
y someone disagree with you?
What happened to Sony's big 2009 line up, moved to 2010, I was not that impressed with MAG MS A Sony B- Nintendo D
I think both Microsoft and Sony had very comparable showings. Sony had some great looking games, and Microsoft had Natal. I look forward to experiencing them all myself. Nintendo had MG2, everything else was just not doing it for me.
Microsoft has a lot more then Natal. SC, AW, Forza and CRACKDOWN 2, my personal favorite! Natal was just so awesome, you probably forgot the games.
I think I really overhyped Sony's conference for myself. I was expecting White knight, Twisted Metal, and a price cut. I still think they rocked with exclusives, but I admit I set the bar really high and was really waiting for the PS3 price cut!!!
i am disapointed. I thought this was supposed to be the biggest e3 for sony in history. Hell even last year was better. There is hardly any exclusives coming this year. Microsoft won this e3 without a doubt!!
You're crazy lol i guess uncharted 2 grand turismo ( psp and 5 ) is not enough for you this year ?
GT5 again, is for next year, and as PSP GT I'll pass
announce more multiplatform and pc games, and no new IPS. Yeah, I'd rather stick to Sony.
Sony has always been more quality. Like Trenton said when he said that they don't mind not being first as long as they get it right. I love that Sony philosophy.
Microsoft - B-, everything sucked except for Alan Wake Nintendo - F-, nothing as usual Sony - AAA, just like their games. How do you compete with Agent (PS3 exclusive from Rockstar), Final Fantasy 14, MAG, God of War 3, Uncharted 2, Heavy Rain, Gran Turismo 5, etc? You can't. Photo-realism achieved. http://www.gran-turismo.com...
that was probably the [email protected] comment i've read on this site, and thats saying a lot.
Also Modnation Racers!! Taking "Mario Kart" to the NEXT LEVEL. Now all the need to do is make a game like Smash Bros Brawl :p. Modnation Racers day 1 buy for me.
...I thought they were real cars. No lie.
Stop posting, you're such a fanboy it's pathetic. Project Natal looks amazing. Project Milo gave me chills when I saw the personal interaction. Use your mind, I know it will be hard, but lets give it a try. Think about how that kind of interaction can change the face of RPG's, the interaction with people would be outstanding. The fact that the camera scanned the picture in real-time and milo took it from your hands is mind-blowing. Imagine the possibilities. Imagine an RPG that plays like Milo. To sit there and say Microsofts show was poor, is a joke. alan wake, Halo ODST, Halo Reach, Crackdown 2, Left 4 Dead 2, Splinter Cell; dude those are ALL solid titles. I can't wait to see Halo ODST outsell ALL your PS3 exclusives. I can't wait till Halo ODST gets a higher and stronger review than the PS3 exclusives...But, I am sure your fanboy self will have another excuse..."uh, well, well, Microsoft paid them!"
MS - B - Too many of the games were multi-plat. Nintendo - N/A - didn't watch Sony - A - A lot of exclusives for hype, the new racing game looks great, emphasis on creativity, psp go for whoever wants it (i'll stick with the 3000), exclusives exclusives exclusives. -----EDIT---- Some of the exclusives in the sony conference were ruined a little because we've been hearing about sony exclusives all year basically, but for people who haven't been keeping up with the news it was a stacked showing.
Whatever help's you sleep at night
Sonys confrence was poor to say the least, it was boring spending too much time on the over priced psp go, i thought gow3 was a bit of a let down (it looked good but it was just the same as the previous 2 installments, they didnt seem to be any evolution in the gameplay). FF14 was a surprise but then i realised its online only so that was a disapoitment and they never showed any thing new on trico or gt5 Finally the wii mote rip off, if i were Sony i would have left that out completely after watching the project natal yesterday, and dont even get me started on the two guys presenting it. I was really expecting more from Sony
i didn't see anything in their demo that made it as amazing as you think it is. and that "MILO" demo for natal? it was laughable. sorry, except for pedophiles, who is interested in milo? and FYI.....kevin periera and adam sessler both thought sonys' motion control was a little better than MS. and i've been looking at some of your other comments.........you seem to hate everything (unless it has MS stamped on it).
Microsoft: B Sony: B Nintendo: LOL
