Congrats Uncharted. I love the beta and can't wait to get the game Day1.

Also, Scribblnauts beating Milo for best Innovation is going to cause a lot of stir. However, you can;t deny that Scribblenauts is amazing.Also,it's coming out soon instead of Milo which I think is 2 years off.

PistolPumptMonk5517d ago

Yeah well Milo definitely didn't deserve best innovation anyway. Possibly most blown out of proportion innovation perhaps.

Anyway, I totally agree about Uncharted 2, the beta is fun and single player looks phenomenal. The first one is still one of the best games on the PS3 (which is saying ALOT due to the massive library increase lately) and is one of three games I have a platinum trophy for.

I have to admit, I was really skeptical about UC2 at the beginning. Seeing that this year is like sequelmania and all, I was expecting it to be a half-hearted job. I'm glad I'm wrong. Personally I would choose Uncharted 2 as Best of show, with a VERY close runner-up of Splinter Cell: Conviction. I'm happy they are taking it back to the classic roots.

- Uncharted : PS3 exclusive
- God of War : PS3 exclusive
- MW 2 : Multiplat, the 360 version is maxed out

This is not what im saying, this is what 1UP is sayig ! No fanboysim but the ps3 wins in that case

overall PS3 won the E3 especially with the new exclusive GTA

Hydrolex5517d ago

Splinter 5 looked AWESOME ! I might borrow my friends 360 to just play that game

Rampant5517d ago

Action: Bayonetta
Shooting: Modern Warfare 2
RPG: Mass Effect 2
Strategy: Supreme Commander 2

I will be playing the best game of every genre on my 360 thank you!

evrfighter5517d ago (Edited 5517d ago )

Best of E3 racing game means it's going to be pretty entertaining in here.

I'm gonna go look up Bayonetta. Must be interesting if it beat out God of War III. Must have slipped under the radar for me =\

el zorro5517d ago

Forza 3, uh oh, get ready for the Gran Turismo fanboys to flip out.

I agree with 1up though, Forza 3 was awesome.

The Master Chief5517d ago

Splinter Cell: Conviction also beat God of War for best action game ;)

40cal5517d ago (Edited 5517d ago )

No Gran Turismo fans are not going to flip out. Just in case you did not notice, the list was made up of playable games. GT5 was not playable at the show and GT PSP made the runners up list.

Tatsunoko vs. Capcom is a Wii game just so you know. And Uncharted 2 got Best of Show.

Rock Bottom5517d ago

Their lists were full of crap, TvsC better then Tekken 6 and KoFXII, TvsC is nothing but a stack of broken gameplay and unbalanced characters, just like MvsC 2.

Also best action game Bayonetta? I wouldn't judge Bayonetta as it seams an awesome game, but how can U2 be a runner up to Bayonetta then on the next page wins the best in the show award? If Bayonetta was better, shouldn't the best of show award goes to it, and if U2 is better, shouldn't U2 win the best action game thing?

1up is full of crap, seriously.

Megaton5517d ago

Agree on Uncharted 2 getting best of show. The stage demo totally blew me away. Relentlessly action packed. Beta's great, but I'm drooling for a shot at the single player since watching that.

INehalemEXI5517d ago (Edited 5517d ago )

Best Elevator Sim: Mass Effect 2

Best RPG of show: Demons Souls

sometimes the truth hurts /dialog wheel [agree][disagree]...[ride elevator again?] o shoot my textures are loading ...wheres my whoop whooop whoop....Lets ride.

Fleet Fox5517d ago

You're right....the truth does hurt, tha's why you're ignoring the fact that Mass Effect 2 won Best RPG. haha

Sorry to break it to ya... but no one even knows what "Demon Soul" is...much less cares about it.

Mass Effect will easily score highest and is MUCH more anticipated.

Must suck always losing.

INehalemEXI5517d ago (Edited 5517d ago )

Playing sweet action rpg will console me. You can look at the awards on the backside of your game box and wonder why you have a loading icon during the action in your elevator sim lol.

you can't win em all. 8D

iDystopia5517d ago (Edited 5517d ago )

Demonstalker, you don't even make sense. Are you trying to be funny by comparing Mass Effect with "Demon Soul"? lol.


INehalemEXI5516d ago (Edited 5516d ago )

Well considering I played Mass Effect and Demons Souls I do think I am qualified to compare them, I try to be funny when delivering my findings and yes I find that I enjoy DS more then ME. I am sure there are masses of folks who disagree though. With out even playing DS.

/looks at {1upyourarse) sideways

ride elevators and browse dialog wheel or kill demons take souls, play pvp or pve 4 player co op. Dungeon crawl or land on lame rocks with barely anything of interest on them... ME has depth of story though I give it that and alien chicks, in space.

......yes, Indeed my friend. Yes..Indeed. You can take comfort in the fact that It is only my bias opinion though.

SaberEdge5516d ago

Wow, trying to compare Demons Souls to Mass Effect 2. You're so funny.

I think you just like it cause it has Demon in the name. You obviously have some fixation on demons.

Sorry to burst your demon bubble, but Demon Souls is not anywhere near the quality level of Mass Effect 2.

INehalemEXI5516d ago (Edited 5516d ago )

Sure if you overlook the technical issues ME has and the shallow battle system compared to DS pfft quality,they probably fixed those for me2 huh /shrug... the lack of sweet demonic bosses to slay...so your not into slaying the demon I get it , I get it.

Somebody has to compare them they both ARPG's right? Both at E3 DS was playable :D

/wonders if you two have given DS a try

Perkel5516d ago

demon soul is not an rpg it's hack and slash.

Best RPG of E3 ? NONE mass efect looks and plays like gay effect 1 and dragon age wasn't like old best crpgs..

INehalemEXI5516d ago (Edited 5516d ago )

dude I imported it and know for damn sure its an ARPG lol. You never seen an rpg with a sword in it or something? Oblivion comes to mind... Kingsfield ...etc.

Defectiv3_Detectiv35516d ago

That's news to me. Personally, I was expecting a lot more. I thought it look really cheap how you can spot people behind doors, and then basically pop out and kill them automatically.

I would say hands down Uncharted beats Splinter Cell. Just because Splinter Cell is MS's best offering doesn't qualify it as a contender.

They really didn't get into the whole open world in Splinter Cell. They just showed one brief portion of the game. At this point, we still don't even know if it will have MP.

Uncharted 2 has a beta already up and running.

ManiacMan40045516d ago

FYI - Splinter Cell Conviction does have multiplayer.


It's also not entirely accurate to compare a game that is still partially in development, to a game (Uncharted) that is finishing up post-production. ...At least info-wise.

Veneno5516d ago

that Alan Wake got absolutely NOTHING!!!

Sarcasm5516d ago

I agree with 1up, Splinter Cell looked the best out of all of the games shown at the MS conference. I seriously cannot wait to play that one.

Seriously, Alan Wake doesn't look that great. As much as you guys hype it up to be the second coming of video games.

As for the PS3 games, I agree that Uncharted 2 had a better showing than GoWIII. They needed to show some Titan fighting in GoWIII, not the beginning of the game fighting the small useless soldiers.
