Sony 5/5

Like making love to a beautiful woman.
They were on viagra, they just kept plundering away at a fast pace & delivering games nonstop.


Edit:
Very happy about Crash Bandicoot & laugh in the faces of those on various forums that say he belongs in the 90's & wouldn't fit in modern gaming. A bit like Rayman then as he was around the same time & yet here he is several years later in Origins & Legends. Yeah, Crash wouldn't fit into modern gaming at all :roll:

Sony 9/10 - an end game surprise would have made it a 10. It felt like that gameplay demo at the end wasn't meant to be there.

I am happy that the gow series is changing - that game looked great! Spiderman looks brilliant and we have more and more games on the console.

Sony win again and have learnt a great deal from past conferences in knowing what people want to see. Their opposition is still learning!

Ubisoft have nailed the format over the past few years. Love Aisha Tyler hosting and always look forward to their conferences more than anyone else's now.


I always find it bizarre whenever people bad mouth her. She does a pretty good job.

Sony - 8/10
Started off really strong with lots of new games that look incredible. Then they showed Call of Duty and I fell asleep. Bit disapointed that Crash is only a remake (I dont buy remakes) and I felt like the Dead Dont Ride game has been done too many times recently so it was a weak way to finish.

EA3/10

The games they had looked good but the show itself was boring and too long. There wasn't enough new stuff and it felt like they were betting the farm on Star Wars but didn't have a huge amount to show for it.

Bethesda5/10
Hey were never going to match the Fallout 4 reveal but they had a solid showing and are slowly becoming a proper publisher. Dishonoured 2 looks good, Prey could be interesting and new Quake is happening a lot sooner than most expected.

Microsoft7/10

Would be an 8 but the Minecraft segment was death and the Scorpio trailer just felt like it was there to counter a surprise reveal of the Neo.
The S looked like a great redesign of the console and they showed a really solid lineup of games but it lacked the wow factor of Sonys conference. Apart from Forza Horizon 3. That trailer spoke to my soul. Tempted to bump them back up to an 8 just just because they didn't announce another Halo game which is almost admirable for them at this point.

Ubisoft6/10
Good line up of games, some poor segments involving VR and the Assassins Creed movie but a strong finish with Steep which looked fairly unique in todays market.

Sony9/10

Its almost becoming a cliché at this stage but once again won Sony E3 by announcing a bunch of games that won't be out anytime soon just like the last two years. Just like the last two years however theres a slight chink in the armour when you step back and look at what they showed for the rest of this year. Last Guardian was shown and some VR stuff but once more their lineup for this Christmas looks a bit weaker than Microsofts. Maybe they have another Until Dawn like surprise waiting in the wings.
Still no Ape Escape either. Which is bad.

EA - 2/10
Terrible, a real parody of the worst of E3 - too much tell-don't-show and nothing memorable at all.

Bethesda 7/10
Not a whole load of announcements, but showed some good stuff, not a lot interesting to me personally though.

Microsoft 9/10
Loads of cross-buy and cross-play, Forza Horizon 3 is my game of the show, lots of interesting stuff but no back compatability news as was expected.

PC Gamer 6/10
I found this fundamentally boring, despite a more sensible chat show-style presentation and some decent stuff shown, it didn't grab me.

Ubisoft 7/10
Ubisoft open world games are all turning into the same thing, and I definitely got bored at the end but it was far more entertaining in its mundanity.

Sony 6/10
Haven't watched, don't really care. EDIT: Have watched it, some of the stuff was cool, but nothing really made me want a PS4

Never pre-order or pre-purchase a console, game or season pass.

I gave both MS and Sony a 9.

But for me Sony wins it marginally, I obviously didn't think quite as much as some of you about Sony's conference, but for the VR stuff they edge it.

Actual numbers:

EA 2/5
Bethesda 3/5
Microsoft 4/5
Ubisoft 5/5
Sony 5/5

Very solid showings from Microsoft and Sony, but Sony went the extra mile. Ubisoft did great for me as well and provided the much needed E3 comedy and spectacle on top of it all.

Watching the whole Sony show now and not just the highlights. 4 games in a row without anyone talking inbetween.

This is how you do it, rest of the industry, let the games speak for themselves.
