Just finally got around to watching the show last night. I can easily say Halo 4 saved the E3 from being pretty meh.

It started off so very awesome with Halo 4 and just went downhill after that. Xbox Smart Glass is very awesome IMO. And more apps makes me happy (especially NFL games in ESPN finally). I didn't like how they only did very short trailers for most every game I had an interest in and the 3 new exclusives they showed either looked horrible or has such short trailers that you had no idea what the game was about other then what it's name is.

So all in all, an awesome start and a few cool things but everything else was pretty mehish.

7/10

I find it hard to be impressed with Halo 4, the graphics were exactly the same as Reach and the engine looked like exactly the same one with a few upgrades, so basically it's still using 10 year old tech as it's foundation.

It's so dissapointing to keep being fed the same crappy graphics. It's just a high res Halo 1 with improved textures on assets and character models, geometry is downright awful - as per usual for Halo.

Really not acceptable.

Wow so much hate. PS3 gets 7 or 8/10 scores, MS gets below average ratings. I was blown away by Halo, but I'll admit I wish they did something else other then Halo, Gears, Forza, and Fable.

Which is precisely why it got below average ratings. You defended their argument.

In my opinion, Microsoft would be a D or D+, while Sony's would be a C+/B-.

Below Average for MS and slightly above for Sony.


From a pure gaming perspective Sony obviously beat MS no question. But neither were anywhere near even being average. Both awful just MS slightly more awful and the actual presentation wasn't as gamer centric in it's style. Even if Microsoft announced exactly the same content as Sony, it's actual show wouldn't have been as good because Microsoft present like some kind of boring seminar.

That still doesn't make Sony's conference "above average". Saying as such would be like reviewers giving mediocre games 7.5s instead of 5s.

If the E3 press conferences were reviewed likes games should be, then Sony scored a 4.5 and Microsoft scored a 4 (out of 10).

 

From a media entertainment perspective Microsoft's show could be seen as average, but nobody nor myself is really interested in that exceot the type of people who wouldn't even be watching the E3 show to begin with.

 

Microsoft have screwed gaming unfortunately and are taking things to a bland place, sad times.

Numerically, it would be around a 4/10 and a 6.5/10

I can understand not being too hyped up for it, but my reasons are different. I just don't get too excited for FPS anymore unless it's something huge or spectacular. It looks like a new Halo with some new (albeit cool looking) enemies.
