Sony won hands down. Sony had true exclusives. Microsoft had exclusive showings of Multi-platform games. Nintendo had .... Zelda, Mario, and Metroid prime It's not even been two days since Microsoft's E3 showing and we're already finding out that they don't have as many exclusives as they indicated. Lost Planet 2 is coming out for the PS3, Mass effect is also coming out for the PS3. In fact Microsoft celebrated one PS3 game going Multi-platform again and that was the whole show. Sony didn't have time for that. They quickly spoke of the games that the 360 lost to the PS3 and then focused on what mattered, The exclusives. Which is Sony's 1up on the competition. Not sure how it'll work out but here's proof that Mass Effect is coming to the PS3: http://forum.teamxbox.com/s... Plus Uncharted 2 and God of War 3 are simply unrivaled on any system. The videos shown destroyed anything that was shown before. And they were in-game videos too. Amazing.
Guess you didn't read much or the article right?
It's hard to say. Microsoft did have a strong conference yesterday but a lot of it wasn't new stuff, just updates to existing titles. The FFXIV bombshell was a pretty big blow, whether or not I'll play it is a different story. Nintendo also had some choice titles. Right now though, I might give it to Sony as well.
I watched all 3 press conferences over the past 2 days, and I have to agree that Sony stole this years E3. The applause during Sony's press conference was way more frequent, loud, and passionate than in any other conference. During both the Microsoft and Nintendo presentations there where announcements made where the presenters paused looking for applause and did not receive the excitement that they where looking for. This did not happen during Sony's presentation. If you watched all of the press conferences you should have noticed this also.
"both the Microsoft and Nintendo presentations there where announcements made where the presenters paused looking for applause and did not receive the excitement that they where looking for." I bet at the Microsoft conference they were like, "Yay we stole another game. Been there done that. Let's go see what Sony got." (I know I'll get lots of disagrees for this one because of all the angry 360 fans on this site. They hated Sony even more after the awesome conference)
lol...applauses for hanna montana as well
In shocking news, everyone at N4G thinks Sony won E3. Also, the sky is blue, and grass is green.
hanna montana is clearly the game of the show. nothing but quality. :)
Answer: Sony Question2: Who had more game news for the future at e3? Answer: Sony Question3 Bonus: Who's experimental motion technology had running realtime examples on the stage for multiple gaming genres?

Answer: didUrikeit? QUestion5 Who had the most multiplatform and timed exclusive annoucnements & "stolen" franchises as Edge put it? Answer: Microsoft... and how dumb do you look when you claim a game that Kojima isn't even involved with is the completion of your gaming library.-- and thats your biggest e3 news.
Sony won for sure. It was fun, funny, impressive, loaded with games, well done, etc. Microsoft did very well too.
360 fans think MS won, PS3 fans thinks Sony won. But everyone can agree, that Nintendo sucked the most second year in a row.
Sony had more exclusives and their motion control was in real time on a ps3, Sony had a better e3.
Microsoft won in my opinion.
Between Sony and Microsoft id say a Tie. Both Conferences were Great :D
It amazes me how MS fanboy keep saying they stole MGS franchise when the franchise was never a PS exclusive, there were MGS games on every last gen console(excluding the Dreamcast),PC and hand-helds. only thing that was PS3 exclusive was MGS4, and they didn't stole that did they?
@Chicken Chaser, You know Fanboys don't read.
what happens if you win e3 ???????? is there a prize? lol
Why does anyone have to "win"? Oh right, because controversial headlines = webpage hits = $$$. Sony and MS both did pretty well. Nintendo was meh. As for which "motion capture technology" was the best? I'll wait for the games before I make that call. Natal has the most potential, but it could also be the biggest failure. Sadly, the Wii Motion Plus might be the least-impressive, but will also go on to sell the most. Why? Because it's a safer bet for companies to make games for an accessory they can bundle with their title. It's risky to make a game for Natal or the Sony Motion, when you can't guarantee enough people will even OWN the product in order to break even.
The stories saying MSFT won are collecting dust 3 pages back. lol PS3 fans are going to say this no matter what.
Maybe its because they had a better show with more exclusive content. Not everything is based on fanboyism...
Videogame fanatics won. There was so much listed from everywhere that I think I may have to sell my wallet to afford all the games. ;) Really though from everyone's camp it seems the biggest games we want on all platforms, exclusive or not, are slated for 2010. As fun as 2009 will be for us gamers we should expect 2010 to be the best year of gaming E V E R !
That is not proof. I've seen those all the time, And, it shows a game for all platforms, but, do not come out for all platforms.. The only confirmation I find acceptable would be straight from BioWare.. On Topic: Once again, the gamers win.. You can't neccisarily say who won, because that is based upon opinions..
I'm not sure if you watched all of the show but Crackdown 2 Splinter Cell conviction, Alan Wake, Halo ODST, Halo Reach,Forza 3, Left 4 Dead 2, and of course all the Natal stuff was exclusive to the 360 why did you ignore that? Plus they didn't even talk about Mass effect or lost planet, and so far no one has said mass effect 2 will be on ps3, except some guy on some forum with some excel spreadsheet, that is absurd. if it was true Sony would have announced it during their show. Uncharted did look great and so did GOW3 but so does Splinter Cell and Alan Wake, and Milo was amazing.
Other the Splinter Cell:Conviction (i must have that) and Golden Sun DS, everything that I'm interested in was at the Sony conf.
MS won! See I can do that too QueefyB
and they didnt even have time to finish it lol
There was nothing but filler Sony did nothing people are saving face for the sh*t talking before E3.
MS didn't show nothing new wtf did you watch the conference . MS won hands down follow by Nintendo,Sony show games we all knew was coming and some games that nobody give a fvck about.
final fantasy was expected and agency seriously u suck at trolling sony so won this year
oh you mean ..the agent a game they didn't even show only a * rockstar logo * ? and Final Fantasy MMO ? oh boy that was full of surprises !! Sarcasm*
@4.1 So you are mentioning Agent a game you dont know nothing about, please...
And here we have one of the cultist of the Red Ring demonstrating what they do best: talking outta their a$$es. You make it painfully obvious that you have no idea what you talking about and that you guzzle down M$'s hype flavored kool-aid on a daily basis. M$ had a good showing this year, no doubt, but Sony was the main attraction and they put on an awesome show. I think your just afraid to admit Sony did really well this year cuz your fellow cultist will crucify you as a heathen betrayer to the Red Ring. It's ok though, we both no better right? ;)
Things I didn't know about Gran Turismo PSP Assassin's Creed PSP Resident Evil PSP Mod Nation Racers MGS PSP FFXIV Agent I'd say Mod Nation Racers is a possible big hit. Looks like LBP on wheels. Definitely looking foward to that one.
please tell me sony ps3 agency ff14 your guys biggest announcement a multi mgsr gt5 look at the trailer lost planet 2 multi the guardian motion controller and dont be like ohh ars is full body motion, guess what 360 fans we been haven that is called eyetoy god3 gameplay uncharted gameplay ModNation Racers MAG psp Gran Turismo * Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker * Resident Evil: Portable * Assassin's Creed: Bloodlines psn * Final Fantasy VII cmon really and thats only the things i know they did and i just got here and also thats only the games to i didnt even add the features into the list
Explain why they didn't. And, please.. Give facts, not opinions. I say that, because you can't do it..
Even though E3 isn't a competition, me as a gamer and owner of all consoles can't help but feel that Sony really kicked ass at E3. They showcased the most exclusives and the most surprises. Microsoft shocked me with Alan Wake gameplay and that motion thing (forgot what it's called). However, Sony has LOTS of exclusive games, the Final Fantasy XIV announcement for PS3 and PC really shocked everybody. That new car game (race, share, create one) looks amazing. PSP Go! Looks promising as well as the titles announced for the PSP. Also, the motion controller looks like it might be a step up from the Wii Remote, but only time will tell. Video content for the PSP is a major plus. Releasing FFVII today was also cool. Also, the 20 minute demo of God of War III that G4TV had was amazing. MAG ran smoothly with 256 players online and looks interesting as well.
all of of them stepped up their game compared to what thy showed last year so they all won personally though id say none of em did it was golden sun lol x]
i think Sony won but only because Kojima and his obvious lack of love for MGS:Rising. It really takes off some of the power of that announcement when the man behind the series is showing an obvious disdain for that title. Other than that, Ms could of showed some new ip's, that's all the conference lacked. B+ for MS A for Sony
I wasn't impressed by Sony's conference. Rock*'s PS3 exclusive had no release date or footage. Waste of time announcing it. I have no idea why they demonstrated AC2 with no great benefits over the 360 version. The Last Guardian was leaked, so it took away the surprise and again no release date. GT5 = no release date. They focused on games that are going to come out next year or so and didn't focus on their holiday line-up. Uncharted 2 looks great, but don't they have other games coming out this year? Microsoft came with nothing and left with an impressive fall line-up.
That's the problem with 360 owners. They're happy about getting Part 2's to everything. PS3 owners like they're share of sequels to games, but Sony blesses us with new IPs and keeps the game train moving. Stop trolling and get on board with the PS3 for the ride of your life.
I think both MS and Sony showed up with a bunch of known multiplatform and exclusive titles, announced exclusives with no footage/date (Reach, Agent), and was pretty par for the course. I don't think either company outdid the other.
Assassins Creed was shown because of the compatibility with the PSP.
Actually AC2 for the ps3 has 6 extra weapons, but you need the psp to unlock it.
The "problem with 360 owners?" Go to hell, and take your over-generalizing statements with you. God forbid some of us enjoy AAA games that also happen to be on "the other" console. I don't care if CoD4 is on the PS3 or the PC or the Wii or the PSP or the freaking Commodore 64, as long as it's as fun as it looks and sounds on the 360. Exclusives are overrated. Being an exclusive does not make something *good*. There's only franchise I really want a PS3 for, and I can't justify $400 for God of War 3 and a Blu-ray player. I'm sorry if this doesn't fit your 360 owner stereotype.
So I need to spend $40 on the PSP version to get the exclusive weapons. Great.
New IPs? Metal Gear Ratchet & Clank God of War Final Fantasy Jak & Daxter just to name a few. The Playstation brand REVOLVES around iterations of the same game. What in the f**k are you talking about?
You are so full of it... Nasim. Haha. Half the games Sony announced were sequels, as well.. @Unicron - Didn't Bungie say that Reach would be out in 2010? o.O
sony owns in all terms this e3.
Microsoft won, easily
gamers won. nobody can say there isn't something they're excited about.
bubble up to you sir you are a true gamer!
mario fans won, 4 new titles lol
And i must say easily... You can argue but Sony came with their A game this E3... Not to mention Sonys conferences always seem to be more interesting to me?!? Not sure why. 360 I thought was terrible, it was more of the same old. I dont see how you go from having all these games to literally not putting out anything all year thus far...
id say sony kept my attention all the way thru. nintendo was better than last year,of course,but wasnt anything exciting.
Nintendo was horrible and MS jsut a bunch of multiplats, games we already knew and copy of eyetoy. the few exclusives looked horrible
if you really think natal is an eyetoy copy you are sadly mistaken
Pretty sure only a PS3 fan would say that: Alan Wake Halo 3: ODST Splinter Cell Conviction Shadow Complex Left 4 Dead 2 Crackdown 2 etc. look horrible.
Alan Wake - PC Best version, Multiplat Halo 3: ODST - Yes its looked horrible, worse footage in E3 Splinter Cell Conviction - PC Best version, Multiplat Shadow Complex - This seems good Left 4 Dead 2 - PC Best version, Multiplat Crackdown 2 - Yes it looked horrible and sequel to medicore game and no, You could say i'm a PC Fanboy. Sony annouced stuff we never knew, exclusive. Most MS Stuff we already knew just release alan wake stop showing me. I will play it on My PC when its out. I'm stating facts. How can you say Halo OSDT looked good? it doesn't have any AA. Due to the fact Sony had stuff we never saw coming, Sony won E3. Simple
what did sony anounced besides the logo of a game and final fantasy XXIV(which they practically showed nothing) ??? the only real new showing was for the kart game(which looks pretty cool) if you are gonna base your argument on anouncements of new games, then nintendo would be the clear winner, wheter you like nintendo games or not. sony might have showed great games i wont deny that, but for new anouncements on the PS3 side, it was the worse (PSP was the other side of the coin, great line up coming up)
It's being developed by Rock* North,the same guys behind GTA. Don't worry it'll rock :)
SONY WAS GOOD BUT I DIDNT SEE WHITE KNIGHT
just had a much better show wen it comes to games
MS for me with Sony very close
i always wonder how fanboys like you have so many bubbles
My friend if you think i'm a fanboy you better look in the mirror. I own both console and i enjoy both. If my opinion bothers you that your problem but dont come here calling me names. I prefer MS because they really showed up when every one was saying they didn't have anything.
Shut your mouth Gun. You're one of the worst on here.
