What about the gamers with only a Wii?
They had a good showing, the battle has always been between Sony and MS when it comes to their respective consoles.
Golden Sun for DS and Project M (METROID PRIME) But i hoped for some Info about the rumored games like Zelda, Kid Icarus, Star Fox, Donkey Kong Country 4, Sadness and so on but nothing of them was mentioned for the Wii.
Indeed Kain, Metroid was a real shocker, you'd think that Nintendo wouldn't show anything that is big, but that took me by surprise. Lets face it though Nintendo didn't bring a whole lot comparing to MS and Sony.
Come on my brother, they brought plenty of fun games, such as i don't know Mario Galaxy 2, you watched the show with me you should know.
I'm looking forward to Playing the new Super Mario Bros. I loved it on the DS and it should be even better on the Wii
Well, the Wii had more interesting games revealed for the first time for it. I can't really think of many games that Sony or Microsoft revealed... Cliffy's game which glitched out, MGS for PSP, FFXIV, and that awesome-looking PS3 racing game. They're going to be good, I imagine. Also, Recon and Kojima's 360 game, but those weren't really shown. That's like saying Zelda.
Are you serious? What about Uncharted 2, God of War III, FF XIV, Splinter Cell: Conviction, Forza 3, The Last Guaridan, man do I need to go on.
In all reality - no one really "won". Almost nothing mentioned that is "big" is even coming out this year. The only big things hitting this year are multi-plat titles.
Sony won obviously.
Menoyou is trying to hard. Obviously.
Well, the Nintendo Wii owners get the vitality thing-a-ma-jig. Isn't that what Wii owners bought their console for? A bunch of accessories. Enjoy! Heck, I own one and frankly other than the occasional hardcore title like Mad World, Muramasa and TvC there really isn't much else that interest me.
nintendo actually had a fairly good showing. Seriously New super mario bros wii, Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story, Golden Sun DS, Mario Galaxy 2, and Metroid project M. they just f'ed it up by boreing everyone with teeny-bop games a good portion of the conference. the speakers didn't help either, they should get some people that are actually interesting to listen to. both MS and Sony had good speakers.
"Forza 3 delivers the thrills our competition can't. FORZA 3 IS THE DEFINITIVE RACING GAME FOR THIS GENERATION. Forza 3 is the BEST looking racing game on ANY console. FORZA 3 IS THE DEFINITIVE RACING GAME FOR THIS GENERATION. Forza 3 is the BIGGEST racing game of this generation. FORZA 3 IS THE DEFINITIVE RACING GAME FOR THIS GENERATION. Forza 3 brings you what NO OTHER racing game can. FORZA 3 IS THE DEFINITIVE RACING GAME FOR THIS GENERATION. The best graphics and physics. The hottest cars. FORZA 3 IS THE DEFINITIVE RACING GAME."
haven't heard that before...
Nintendo fan? Cause as much as I love my Wii and all the IP's, it's felt like a "yawn" watching the conference out of all three I watched.
i was yawning at the fact that the real winners were the gamers...gimme a break, thats like the default response for these kind of stories
The reason the article says that both won is because both were good. Last year Sony got pwned by Microsoft, however this year they matched them. Not everything on n4g has to be flamebait. In fact a non flamish article every now and then is just what n4g needs.
I will say that the gamers did certainly win this E3 this fall and winter is gonna be jam packed with great game releases which is great news for everyone. As far as who won out of the big three I have to say Sony. They had more games that interested me and there motion control is far more practical then Project Natal which aside from Milo is nothing but a very fancy eye toy. It seems Sony's motion control has some uses in real gaming and is much closer to actual release if the on stage demo was anything to go by. The announcement of Final Fantasy XIV was also quite the shock. I have to say that being a Final Fantasy XI player for 5 years I am very interested in Final Fantasy XIV and hope it will be everything I want it to be and more.
Yea this year easily reminds me of 2006/2007, when a great amount of titles came out and we went broke. Heck even Holiday 2008 was great with Fallout 3, Left 4 Dead, Fable 2, Farcry 2 and few other original IP's came out.
I'm thoroughly enjoying this year's E3. Too bad it'll be over in a short while...
I swear it feels like the Olympics, you are highly anticipating this even and it's over in mere moments. Each year get's you more excited.
Everyone but Nintendo owners won. ;)
Hey now hold on a sec, they got Metroid Prime Other M, I'll take that any day.
winning a shouting competition is nothing, its all about delivering on the promises made. For me Uncharted and Last Guardian stole my heart, these are the kinda games that I am in this gig for.
Oh man that last Guardian almost put a tear on my eye.
And they haven't even killed it yet...
overall the show was huge. Great announcements by all. It shows that no matter what the economy is doing, gaming is not dead. I will need to find a way to make some more cheese for these great games coming...
Watch the Sony E3 again and listen carefully to the crowd. Crowd went wild on many occasion. Read the responses on the web. Look for developer responses like EA, Konami, Ubisoft etc. Sony won. By a mile.
To tell you the truth I believe all the leaks hurt Sony's presentation as well as MS a little. If the PSP go and Last Guardian were revealed later at e3 than they both would of shocked more. Also I thought the demo of GOW3 was much better than any earlier footage and helped put my negative thoughts into a positive perspective. The thing with Risen being a bigger announcement than Final fantasy is really just opinion. All 3 did well for there fanbases and really that's what should matter.
The presentation of it was just boring as all get out. It would be like Ferris Bueller's teacher introducing Salma Hayek, Megan Fox, & Brittany Daniel to you at the nude celebrity picnic. The substance is fantastic, but the introduction leaves something to be desired. Bueller... anyone... Bueller...
Uncharted2,MAG,GOW3,I am interested. Splinter cell looks promising but honestly splinter cell was never my deal.I like the idea but not the execution,still it looks to be a quality game . New Mario in classic 2d form?! oddly excited,cant really explain.I shrugged it off initially but I can't deny my roots. I would say that Sony offered better games,at least to my liking but I am dismayed that none of them release this year. Microsoft's presentation was similar,albeit interesting enough.The motion controls presented by both companies don't peak my interest but valiant if not late efforts. No real winner as it were but the PS3's future lineup is indeed amazing but long overdue.
True Gamers win, Fanboys who call themselves true gamers choose sides and decide on a winner. Just like Halo3 MLG pro with his alternate accounts.
Fanboys, not so much...
We have a winner. Bubbles.
LOL! If Sony clearly won I'm sure your answer would be different. Typical defensive response.
All I know is that around last year 360 fanboys were going on about how the PS3 only had its "potential" to brag about. This year, 360 fanboys are going on about their console's "potential." The karma will turns, so just enjoy what you got while you got it :p
Really? We'll i'll tell you this. "Forza 3 delivers the thrills our competition can't. FORZA 3 IS THE DEFINITIVE RACING GAME FOR THIS GENERATION. Forza 3 is the BEST looking racing game on ANY console. FORZA 3 IS THE DEFINITIVE RACING GAME FOR THIS GENERATION. Forza 3 is the BIGGEST racing game of this generation. FORZA 3 IS THE DEFINITIVE RACING GAME FOR THIS GENERATION. Forza 3 brings you what NO OTHER racing game can. FORZA 3 IS THE DEFINITIVE RACING GAME FOR THIS GENERATION. The best graphics and physics. The hottest cars. FORZA 3 IS THE DEFINITIVE RACING GAME." :)
Gamers FTW. Metroid Prime Other M looked sick. I'm getting a Wii for that game. Mario back on top.
Splinter Cell, Alan Wake, Crackdown 2, Prototype, Heavy Rain, Uncharted 2, Mass Effect 2, Assassins Creed 2, NCAA Football 10, Bioshock 2, & probably Batman: AA. Gamefly que for Operation Flashpoint 2, Alpha Protocol, Fight Night R4, Demon's Souls, & Rogue Warrior.
I might come out as a fanboy lately but I'm just tired of the SDF ruining this site. So now it's time for a lil revenge! ;) The growing consensus is that Microsoft won. Plain and simple. Stop with the excuses. Stop with the complaining. Microsoft took no prisoners.
You're a fanboy who belongs in the openzone. You're the XDF. You just have too many excuses, can't be a gamer but have to be a fanboy in the gamer zone. You make real xbox 360 only owners look bad. He disagreed 3 times, so thats 3 accounts.
M$ didnt need to take prisoners to steel their ideas... just signed a cheque and boom,now microsoft has their "own inovative ideas".. M$ conference =EPIC FAIL. watch the sony and M$ conference all over again and see witch audience was more appealed to either sony's or M$ spotlight. i DARE YA.
I'm just curious why you call yourself a gamer but yet pick sides? There are tons on sony fanboys here talkling down 360 news and gamers daily just because of there opinion, so where are you then? Why do you selectivly only go for the 360 fanboys and except the others? You see this is what bothers me about the way many of you try and come across as neutral on n4g person. If you were a gamer you would call out everybody and not only the select few 360 fanboys on n4g.
It's funny you reply to me and claim I pick a side but yet only when I talk about halo 3 mlg pro. The irony of this is that I have said the same crap to many fanboys on this site and my comment history proves it. I do have to ask, why do you have 4 bubbles if you're neutral? You're not neutral at all going by your comments. Wow I just read some of your comments. Basically you're a pro anti sony fanboy and not too fond of nintendo as well. You're full of rage and nerd energy that is wasted on the poor man's economy. Own one console and bash all the rest, thats your philosophy and not mine. Enjoy the ignore list like halo mlg noob
That has been my point from the beginning of this debate. The most cheering and applause happened during Sony's conference. I offer the same challenge to everyone still debating this point, watch all 3 again, and you will see what myself and San Frandisco are talking about. Based on crowd reaction Sony easily took this years E3. Oh, and San F. bubbles for your powers of observation.
'Fanboys' only lose or some such nonsense.With little to play but coming soons and looks awesome it is fair to say that it isn't about winning or losing but rather here and now.
looks like someone just "won" the internet. ^_^
Sony won in my eyes... but I'm biased... No matter who you choose, at least Nintendo bombed again. It's sad what success can do to a great company. I will never take Nintendo serious again.
I won the E3!! I am the champion!!
Nice one Chillbilly!! Bubbles^^
I think the gamers are the real winners this E3, as well as, this entire generation. The whole "who won" thingy was entertaining at first, with Sony's showing and the rush to debate, but with E3 drawing to a close, and the adrenaline starting to taper off a bit, I think its starting to get a little silly with "who won this" and "Natal rules" and whatever.
I am eagerly anticipating any new releases that might pique my interest.I currently own a PS3,it has served me well and so on and so forth etc.I used to own a 360 but it had disc tray problems.I wasn't to be discouraged however and picked up a 2nd 360.As fate would have it,it had disc reading issues,not really sure and I don't really care.Picked up a PS3;launch and still humming along between Sony's excellent first party lineup.As of late,besides Infamous(GREAT GAME),I am slightly worried rather annoyed at upcoming releases.Uncharted2,day one.Past that,not really sure.The PS3 excells when pushed yet remains mired in mediocracy when it comes to multi's and constant,decent releases.I have often considered acquiring a 3rd 360 but at some point I must reflect upon past experiences.This 'gaming' moment can and will accept all agrees or disagrees,it is the truth,MY truth,think of it what you will.
Everyone accept Sony sites lean to Microsoft as the winner.
and only fanboys really seem to care.....
In my mind Sony won due to the simple fact that I got to see Kratos spread a Centaur's entrails in HD. That doesn't necessarily mean that Sony had the best show. It just means they showed me what i wanted to see most. Nintendo did great. A far cry from last years bullcrap fiasco. And Microsoft had a solid show as well. Overall gamers won I'd say. We're all a little bit happier, more excited, and more hope filled for this entertainment genre that we love so much than we were before E3 began.
gamers understand that They won no matter what hardware they own, fanboys everywhere are breathing a big sigh of relief E3 has come along. They were all running out of subjects to argue over till Monday. Now they have all been refueled again for another year. Lets face it if E3 had not come along Fanboys would have been down to arguing over which console had the best little rubber feet each one sat on. (the console not the fanboys I might Add)!!!!
