Both sony and MS. I dont think they expected Nintendo to come out guns blazing like they did :).

how could you say sony needs to step up their game after showing you not only loads of exclusive titles, but 3d gaming and motion controls. they have all gamers covered from every angle.

Mucudadada4608d ago

I agree with most of what you said, except for Sony. I think it only seems like they needed to step their game up because we over expected stuff from them. If they had waited and revealed all those games at the presser, none of us would be disappointed in them right now. However, since they did reveal all that stuff, we all expected them to have even more t E3. When they didn't, it let us down. So, the disappointment really came from the timing of the announcement and our over zealous expectations.

my ownly "disapointment" is that i dont have enough time/money to get all the titles that interest me. i still have a few exclusives out already that i need to pick up.

games i havent purchased and plan to:

Mag, ratchet and clank,infamous,batman aa, final fantasy13, motorstorm pd,rdr. im sure im missing a few.

now i also have to look forward to gt5,lbp2, killzone3, twisted metal, last guardian, infamous 2, maybe sorcery too (it looks interesting)

I agree with Muca.

For me:

Nintendo surprised me the most because I expected the least.

Microsoft disappointed me the most because I expected more.

Sony had a great show, but it dragged on in some areas, but they met my standards, though I unrealistically expected more from them because of all the hype people shoved around. So there was a slight disappointment when they didn't focus on everything I expected, but that's hype for you.

And Sony DID have time for more games, they could have easily removed some of the stuff that dragged on. However, Sony, unlike Nintendo, is more than a gaming company and they needed to represent themselves in terms of 3D marketing, Move, etc. Also, I'm sure they just purposely hid some of the games (The Last Guardian, etc). for the future. We know it's there, but Sony decided to tease us. There's a difference between that kind of disappointment and the disappointment you feel when you see MS's E3. One is "awe, give me more, we know you have more" and one is "that's shockingly disappointing".

With that said people always say they are gamers and games matter most. Well, Nintendo was pure gaming at their E3. They were short but so, so sweet. As a show, I commend Nintendo.

But this article wants us to know who has to step up their game, so that's different. For me, that's MS because they have the most to prove with Natal, and by making it the centerpiece of their E3 they gave themselves that burden.

Your bubbles are so intimidating, lol.

Spenok4607d ago

Mucudadada pretty much said it right. It was only disapointing to some because they over expected from sony. Not because they didnt deliver. Nintendo was the best, Sony in a close second because they purposefully left out several titles, and there pacing was a bit off, and Microsoft was in just plain last for numerous reasons.

Imo Microsoft needs to "Step up there game"

Damn...must be a slow news week.

halojunkie4608d ago

PFFT... microsoft got the short end of the dikc, not sony or nintendo.

Christopher4607d ago

All of them. Honestly, it's their job to keep stepping up the game. When they stop, I stop caring about their products altogether.

sikbeta4607d ago



Pffft, the only bad about Sony's Conference was the Talking and too much EA, everything else was Great, while both of the MS Conferences were about the same thing, kinect and not showing anything REAL about that device, that pretty much make you realize who needs to Step Their Games Up....

nickjkl4607d ago

sony had so many montages that the opening was a montage as long as they stop with the montages next year im all good

Christopher4607d ago

Sony does like to go overboard with the game montages. It wouldn't be so bad if a lot of the games weren't repeated across the montages, especially ones you just saw on stage (KZ3 and SOCOM being the big examples there).

demonddel4607d ago

please i repeat please dont say nothing negative about the "they cant do nothing wrong sony" or these bubble assassin will bubble rape you

I'm actually looking forward to a lot of upcoming games from from Sony. Since E3, a lot of people have been trying to group MS and Sony together for some reason.

Hands Up For Games4608d ago

Hopefully everyone steps up their Game. You dont want to be standing still, do you? And if everyone raises their Game then us Gamers reap the rewards. Step it up people, step it up :)!!

dachiefsman4607d ago

no offense but that whole sentence sounded like a 80's PSA for sports.

I agree with your idea, but the delivery was a little off.

FENDR4608d ago

microsoft the only reason ppl say Nintendo won is because they brought out a new handheld but the games weren't impressive at all

Fel084607d ago

Not true. Nintendo brought the guns this year. True we are excited about the new 3DS. But they also brought it in the gaming department. If u don't realize that u r just simply a pathetic Nintendo hater or just a jealous Sony/MS fanboy.

iceman064607d ago

people might have the perception that Nintendo didn't do all that much at E3 this year. I's the rehash issue all over again. But, when you think about it. That's what the die-hard Nintendo fans really want. They want the Kirby, DK, Zelda, Metroid, etc. Plus, Nintendo had been completely underwhelming at most of their previous E3 conferences. So, essentially Nintendo brought games that their fan base really wanted and the "surprise" of the 3DS. That's hard to beat. Sony, IMO, delivered on what they were expected to do. MS, on the other hand, was disappointing because they have held themselves as the self-appointed "hardcore" console. Yet, their conference was all about Kinect and casual games. Their fan base was left wanting simply because the "hardcore" games that were shown had been shown already for months.
