Best E3 press conference?

Forums - Gaming Discussion - Best E3 press conference?

Hated Sony's 2013 conference, as well as MS's the same year. I haven't watched too many so I missed most of them. The only one I've really liked was Microsoft's 2014 conference. Honestly, I've found the event to never live up to the hype, probably because I visit these forums on a daily basis; no surprises.

I just can't see why so many people goes with Sony's 2013 presentation. They just said that they were doing something that it has been implied to exist since the conception of gaming consoles. They just stressed it. Nintendo also lets you share and buy second hand games. Hell, Sony had done it with all his previous consoles. Whats the deal? I understand the hate to Microsoft and the Xbox, but not the love that Sony recieved that day.

Anyway... Nintendo 2009 all the way. Metroid Other M, Golden Sun DS (good Lord, I came when I saw that), Sin and Punishment 2, Zelda Spirit Tracks, Super Mario Galaxy 2, New Super Mario Bros. Wii... and the artwork for Skyward Sword. Epic.


Because sony is Microsoft's rival.  Sony could have followed Microsoft and taken the more profitable anti consumer route.  Everyone would have eventually accepted it and the core of the home console market would be fucked over by those policies.  I firmly believe the likes of EA, UBISOFT and Activision were pushing hard for them.  



Hands down Nintendo E3 2008. Anyone that says otherwise is biased.

They charge us for the goddamn online just as Microsoft did first. The fuck. A Sony that can do that can eventually go against second hand in the future. They just played safe and took advantage of Microsoft being dumb now. Just wait.

Anyway, I still think that keeping doing what you've been always doing has no merit. At all. Even if your rival does the opposite. The reaction of the crowd was exagerated.



It's sad that E3 is now based on consumer protection policies rather than games.

That's pure speculation.  Fact is the playstation fans were delighted the anti consumer policies were not coming their way. As for paying 5$ a month for online.  It's more then worth it considering all the extra games I get to play on ps3/ps4. It's actually the most consumer friendly online charge ever !

The games are a given but how restricted you are when playing them is not.
