Microsoft and Sony's press conferences are now over, we've been through hell here at....
I don't see how people would ever think the Kinect could beat the Move.
They both suck. there is no need for motion controls anymore. Nintendo is apparently bowing out of motion controls with project cafe, so Sony should do the same. I Hate Kinect as well. Just bring back the regular controllers guys. I'm begging you.
Good, MS and Sony copy Nintendo, let Nintendo return the favour by going back to their roots. I hope they show us what Core gaming really is.
Move plays great. Not sure where your getting at with "bring back regular controllers". Did anyone take them away from you? I want the option (!) to support Move in all action games and shooters, as well as strategy games. The rest I can't care less about. To each his own. Go play with the controller if you like, but let me have my Move.
@xskipper- Nah, I'm VERY excited for that R3 Sharpshooter bundle and the price is perfect!
only problem is alot of people own it, I got it with socom. .but R3 looked great @LOGICWINS - It's alot more Dead on, you can get across the screen without thinking about it, you just need to change a few settings, and it'a perfect
@Darkspade- Btw, how is the Sharpshooter? Is it more fun to use than the DS3?
And look forward to see what it's like on Bioshock
Move in BIOSHOCK!!!!!!!!!!!!!! <3 And resistance of course!!
@easyC Yeah of course, just like they told us what core gaming really was when they released a system aimed towards casual gamers, right? Man you are an idiot.
Nobody cares about Sony's "me too" motion controllers. Even Nintendo is getting away from it. At the very least, Kinect is different in that it has voice recognition, face recognition and no controller, but even the Kinect needs to disappear from games...
I will give the 360 props for landing a Minecraft port. THAT will be awesome. I freaking love that game, and yesterday in fact I posted about how much I'd love to see it come to the 360 and/or PS3. The thought of my 360 buddies getting in on it is awesome...that is, assuming that they allow private multiplayer maps. Aside from that, Microsoft really stunk up this year.
You don't have to explain it really. We all know Microsoft's was one of the worst we've ever seen. But Sony's wasn't too great either. They had good content, but nothing shocking or amazing. The $250 PSV price tag was the only thing that took me off guard. The conference was honestly a snooze-fest and I was disappointed. I give it a C or maybe a C+.
I don't know about that. The first part of Sony's press conference seemed to zoom on by.
i don't even remember that part, i felt like it skipped from Sly Cooper trailer to NGP. Surprise they didn't talk about sales with charts like they usually do. They just said they are up some % from prev. years
For me the TV they introduced was amazing! I mean 3D on a 24 inch and split screen without actually splitting the screen in half and for so cheap... How are more people not talking about this?
I think that Monitor idea is great. Now add an $699 and $899 option with 32" and 40" and we have a winner.
I was hoping for some more ps3 games but overall I'm satisfied.
I think there is a reason for this. Nintendo is releasing a new console (so we may see games at gamescom-not over shadowed) or it could be if rumours are true with the PS4 is coming out in 2014 at the latest it would make sense for the lack of games. It takes like 2 years to make a good games. In a way I know the latter is a long shot but why release steller games so close to a new hardware addition. This year has been rammed with PS3 exclusives I think if gamescom shows little, next year will have much less games with a console releasing the year after. Microsoft is harder to suggest because they are just pushing the kinect option and there lack of exclusives comes down to no first party studios. So far the best conference was Ubisoft
Sony's show was decent IMO. Yeah, more games could have been shown but I was impressed with what they had so far.
Well I thought that there'd been more exclusive games from Sony but I stll feel like they won this round.They're losing the war but the won this battle.
Yeah FFv13 not showing up was a disappointment but they still had a good show, and Microsoft they just a little to much kinect mess.
I wonder if the Japanese market is saving more of their major announcement for TGS, to get life/revenue after the Tsunami disaster?
It was no contest.
$499 $249 XD
8 games 4 games XD
Felt the exact opposite when I saw gears 3.
My ratings: Sony - B Microsoft - D
Exactly the same as me.
the microsoft conference sucked big time. Wow a new Halo game, thats 6 halo games this generation........pathetic.
Halo 3, halo reach, halo remake halo 4, I count 4 games. edit: Halo wars was a big launch?? Also do you mean like Gran turismo 1 gran turismo 2 gran turismo 3 gran turismo 4 prologue gran turismo 4 gran turismo 4 online gran turismo 5 prologue gran turismo 5 I smell cheese.
Halo ODST and HAlO wars. Anyone got milk?
The thing is sony does gt games and everthing else, where MS just does halo really.
How many of those GTs came out this gen again?
He said this generation not of all time. Plus Team Throw has had meaningful upgrades each itteration. Halo 1 was good and then downhill.
You smell cheese? while your smelling that cheese tell me how many gens it took to release that many gran turismos and how many to release that many halos Thank you,come again.
he said this gen...its only been prolouge and gt5..so why are you counting all the gts from since ps1....btw its been halo 3 halo 4 halo odst halo reach halo wars and a halo remake so it is 6
Halo ODST, Halo Wars!
You forgot Gran Turismo HD Concept.
You mean the free thing on PSN?
Forza 1 Forza 2 Forza 3 Forza 4 hmmm ya I get the cheese ... Now I’m not saying forza is bad. But IMO car sims like this are games that take a lot of time to finish and most of the time I always get bored eventually and then a few months later I get back to them… But MS keeps releasing forza’s on such short periods… I don’t get how people have the time to actually finish one before the next one comes out. It’s almost like the Madden or NHL of racing games. GT5 had some disappointments, but if you’re a true racing fan it’s a still a good game… Maybe though Il give forza 4 a try… Last ones I’ve played was the first and second.
sony only needed to show up to beat MS lol
funny lol :)
MS is becoming more of a family entertainment company. Sony is staying true to core audience that PS1 started with. This is actually good because it gives the market variety. PSV 3G FTW!
That doesn't make sense. Sticking to the core audience is actually less variety. There's nothing wrong with family entertainment. PS Move came with Sports Champions and that's not a core game but I play it all the time.
he meant both consoles together are variety, Kinectbox offers more for the family and PS3 is more for the hardcore straight gaming, its not just 1 or the other.(meaning gaming market as a whole) Last gen is was just about straight gaming, this year has definitely innovated and gone different directions (Sony of course, staying true to what they started while adding what everyone is doing without sacrificing anything!)
@SweatyFlorida Thank You. The market has variety instead of just catering to one specific area.
Microsoft just wants to grab a slice of that casual market created by the Wii. Only now, I'd bet a lot of the people new to gaming are going to be looking to move beyond gimmick and into something a little more substantial.
I dunno about PSV 3G FTW - I (like a LOT of the audience judging by the boos) was very disappointed to hear that AT&T would be the exclusive PSV carrier. I'm trapped in a contract with them and the coverage sucks. The speed sucks. They should have gone with Verizon. It's funny, but for the nation's largest and supposedly fastest carrier, everyone I know (on either coast, north and south) can't stand AT&T.
I'm in the UK. This is a list of mobile companies I have been with. Orange, O2, T Mobile, Virgin, Vodafone, 3. They are all atrocious as well. I'm guessing it's going to be one of them. I guess what i'm trying to say is that phone companies can suck it.
They are making a device for the world, and the world went GSM. So that limits your options in the US.
I missed that part... That really sucks. This is the reason I didn't get an Iphone, and now it's the reason I won't play 3G on PSV. How stupid.
They should have gone with an open slot. Why the hell does a gaming device - which runs on a data plan only (!) - need to be locked down to one provider. WTH. They make money with selling sim cards with contracts anyway. These providers should be sued. This sim lock practice should be declared illegal. WTF. Really. I want to buy a phone and choose my SIM from who ever I want. Give me a rebate if you want a 3 years contract. Simple.
I actually found Sony's last years conference to be better. this one was kind of meh but still enjoyable.
It was better (IMO) but that's because there wasn't too much to show for PS3 and the most awesome stuff were about PSV, U3, R3, PS 3DTV, Starhawk, Sly4 were awesome, but we already knew about most of them...
well i guess at this rate, it looks like nintendo gonna win E3 again this year. Although i think that EA show was the best. They only show games, good game too no less. I think E3 become more like a showcase of new techs, new service, etc...not much about games.
Well, content wise I'd say Ubi was up there with amazing AC and Ghost Recon - even though I could not look at the presentation. It was funny (in a weird way) or embarrassing. I am still not sure which. EA had the better conference, but BF3 is the only show case title. Overall maybe better than Ubi; and I almost forgot about Ubi but those two games made a difference.
doesn't matter , Nintendo will own E3 this year.. Sony did a Great job, and Microsoft did good.. Nether Company showed anything New I did like the Kinect stuff looks like it's finally getting support... But With Project Cafe.. I Can't What to See this Machine.....
At the end of the conference Tretton said: 'And the best is yet to come...' For a few seconds there my heart stopped beating and I anticipated a HUGE exclusive announcement from a 3rd Party developer. Alas it was not to be
Same I was hoping for one last huge announcement Legend of Dragoon 2 Syphon Filter 5 or something
I want Legacy of Kain back Edit - strange how there was no mention of Last Guardian. I thought they'd show new stuff from that
oooooooooooo i would have a stroke if they ever announced legend of dragoon 2 the first was amazing!
Sony showed off better games and more exclusives Microsoft showed off Halo 1 remake suprise! we didn't know this at all and Halo 4 suprise could never predict this either
I thought both were mediocre. I dont think Nintendo will have any trouble beating either of them. Both MS and Sony had good parts but also parts where I was bored to tears. Both Kinect and Move parts could have been left out.
AT&T... NOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !
I can't believe they said the fastest network AT&T...LMAO. I think they are the Worst Network, People are going to buy the PS Vita, If you live just out side any bg city you'll get no service.. lol.. Here to ROOTED WIFI TETHER
Dude, I live in N. Hollywood/Burbank area, terrible service man.
I live in a town of about 40,000 people and I get fantastic service with AT&T no matter where I go.
Haha. True. I remember posting elsewhere that I couldn't think of anything bad to say about Vita. I forgot about this. But I don't think it will be an issue for me, personally and it won't stop me from getting one.
