As far as the press conferences go, I thought Nintendo did the best mostly because of DS3. The Wii stuff was ok, but I don't care about my Wii any more. Sony came in 2nd, it was way to long and I don't care about 3DTV, but there were some good games announced oh and Portal 2! (I'll probably get it on something else). Microsoft did ok just there were no big surprises. I love the tec in Natal but none of the games seem that interesting. Maybe the Ubisoft exercise game, looks much better then EA fit, but that's not really a game. The preview for the medal gear game sure looked rad. 3DS will own Christmas!

I think it was Nintendo with the 3DS (not DS3 >_> technically it's more like the DS 2 anyway) then Microsoft, because at least they had the Xbox 360 S. Sony didn't really have anything except for the Valve thing, and I don't really consider that Sony's. It's a PC game that they announced would also be on PS3 is all.
No way dude, you're trolling me.

Sony's would have been hilarious if it wasn't so sad: "Oh yeah here is our new ad campaign that is horrible and I will spend half an hour talking about how the PS3 is supposed to be great and not showing you any games or anything. [REPEAT]"


At least Microsoft actually had things to show off.



Nintendo had me at Kirby.
Not a winner anymore.

Nintendos was pretty awful as far wii go's, but I don't own a DS (not a fan of handhelds)

Sony is pushing 3D and move both of which I don't want to see go anywhere.

Microsoft is pushing Natal which I don't want to see go anywhere ether....at least they showed off metal gear..sigh....

Really a disappointing E3 for me from all sides. Sony and Microsoft let me down pushing super casual time on us. Nintendo let me down because they finally brought back two series I have been yearning for only to completely botch them up.

Indiana jones Kirby looks God awful and Donkey Kong looks like the exact same game I played on the Snes...oh and I think Zelda's the only one left to NOT get a 2D side scroller (So much for them motion controls eh?)

I'm glad I have another hobby now, because gaming is going down the crapper really fast.

Well, consider this just another stepping stone. We do this now and it leads into other, cooler technology later.
And besides, can't deny that people are pretty jazzed for this stuff anyway. I wasn't impressed by all the staged Kinect stuff, but whatever.

The only complaint I have is the push for 3D TVs. Otherwise, it's all pretty neato I guess.
Probably not gonna buy any of it 'cause I tend to prefer PC games but hey.

Sorry to double post, but Konami is doing a private conference behind closed doors.

Try this link while it's hot -- http://mfile.akamai.com/73487/live/reflector:49700.asx?bkup=32012
Should load up in Windows Media Player for most of you. Don't know what to do if that won't work though.

I agree with you there.  The 3D technology currently in use is absolutley dreadful.  It is far more expensive and far lower quality, but that's to be expected.  The annoying part are the glasses, which are ridiculously expensive, and only work for your TV, so if you're going to a friend's house, you can't bring your own pair, they need enough for everyone.

But again, stepping stone.  We have to wade through the BetaMax's before we can get to DVDs.

Playstation Move is an action peripheral based on Japanese technology. The features of the hardware are all based on products that were actually sold in Japan.

So here's this giant enemy crab. And we waggle its weakpoint... for MASSIVE DAMAGE.

I had the horrible thought that the Japanese might put its weakpoint in some suggestive area you have to "touch". All this Move and Kinect crap is retarded. What happens when you need to use the bathroom or, god forbid, change where or how you're standing or sitting? And they make us pay more for most of it. Ridiculous really. I'm rather peeved that Microsoft and Sony are wussing out and trying to go at the Wii's casual (AKA craptastic, quickly made games in most cases) market with their own crappy knock-offs. At least they could take a real shot at the Wii with some that wasn't half-assed like Move or Kinect.

Also: LOL at Medal of Honor ripping off Modern Warfare 2.

Didn't the guys that got fired from Inifinty ward join the development for Medal of Honor?
If so, I can't help to believe that they helped a lot with the multiplayer part just to get back at them. :P

It's been like, what, 2 months?  That's not enough time for them to have much of an effect even if they did.

I'm predicting it now. In order to use Kinect you will need the new 360.

Wait and see.

Microsoft themselves have confirmed at their conference you can use Kinect with existing 360 models.

Or were you too discouraged from watching the whole conference to hear that? :P

Actually I know a few contacts that are well versed in that area and they have told me that the existing 360 has issues running kinect correctly. They could be wrong though. That and I drew a few logical conclusions of my own.

You're assuming Kinect runs properly in the first place, which it doesn't.

I wouldn't go saying that. Most of the reviews say that it works pretty well. There were some issues with sitting but otherwise the tech is solid. The problem was that as a gaming peripheral it doesn't seem as versatile as a controller or a Wii-like configuration. But hopefully Microsoft can prove that wrong.
