Rumours have had it that Nintendo's conference may be where we see that announcement spring forth...

Because Rockstar don't currently have any big announced project on the go?

You did the right thing. Jack Tretton is very good natured and I like him but the conference was gooseberry fool. Loads of out-of-breath demos by panting overweight nerds with the personality of cardboard. Soggy cardboard that was left out in the rain by market stall workers at the end of trade on a busy Saturday.

There was no Kevin Butler and I believe because they would have felt the mood was not right after the PlayStation outage. People might have said they were arrogant. But definitely their confidence has taken a knock and it showed.

I still hold Halo faboys in a higher regard to their CoD counterparts.

Yeah, watched it last night...I keep getting this feeling with Sony and Microsoft's shows that they're showing us plenty of content, but it's not actually the content that people want to see. I mean, Medieval Moves? NBA2KYEIDP122 or whatever? Who gives a strawberry float? Show me Journey, show me The Last Guardian, show me Agent, show me Batman.

Show me Ape Escape 4.
Sonic Boom is awful. If you buy that abomination or trick someone else into buying it then you deserve pain, misery and suffering.

New Batman footage was shown during Gametrailers live E3 coverage but outside of the press conferences, it is stonking. :D

Assassin's Creed Revelations, Mass Effect 3, Battlefield 3 and Rayman Origins kick the platform holders arses.

Move controls for NBA2K12 demoed. Pointer based gameplay. Pushing for accessibility to non-gamers.

Oh what the strawberry float, you make one of the best and most realistic sports game around and then you go and make it's follow up 'accessible to non-gamers'

I found it slightly disappointing. I didn't have high expectations anyway, a lot of Sony's exclusives don't appeal to me, and traditionally I find Tokyo Game Show to show more Playstation based content suited to my tastes. Uncharted 3 looked superb, much better than what we'd seen of the game so far. It looked gorgeous and there was a logical flow to the set piece, it wasn't overcooked, it was just superb design work, so much so, that watching it, you couldn't help but think whatever followed is going to have a tough time keeping up the momentum. It was all downhill from there for me. Out of all the R3 content we've been drip fed so far, that was easily the blandest. After the video in the boat, and then the cover art reveal, they very nearly had me, now I'm just not interested anymore.

The Vita stuff was easily the point where I felt genuinely let down. This was the moment, where they could reveal what the future of the product held for us, where they could build hype toward the launch, and plant seeds of interest in what was coming in the distant future. It didn't really deliver for me. The BioShock reveal, great, fantastic. They didn't even need to show anything, just let me know what I have to look forward to. Nintendo did a fantastic job of illustrating what was to come in the future for 3DS, and I just wish Sony would have shown us more. While Ruin is very much up my street and looked solid, if a little by the numbers, the social aspects sound dire. The Street Fighter x Tekken thing doesn't interest me in the slightest, it's the type of game I'd rather get on a home console.

It's strange, even the Uncharted Vita game didn't really hook my interest as much as I'd hope. For me, it's not the climbing nor shooting that makes Uncharted great, it's the smart, intricately designed set pieces and the witty dialogue and characters, and this game showed nothing of that.

I'm almost certain I'll pick Vita up, probably at launch, but for me it feels like very little of what went wrong with PSP is being addressed.

That price point however, much better than I was expecting :wub:.
