Xbox: Better conference overall. Games that appeal to me. Better & more Indy's. New controller. TOMB RAIDER.

Question to OP: Why early access written in poll? It's not a big thing compared to other stuff they showed...

 

However, I found BOTH to be worse than last years'.  Also, MS might not ever win in any poll on VGC.


I have to hand it to VGC this year, Sony destroyed Microsoft and I voted for Microsoft last year. Sony proved their first party is heads and tails better than Microsoft creating games Microsoft could not fathom creating. Also, Tomb Raider wouldnt be where its standing without Uncharted and Uncharted is continuing to push the envelope.

I was very pleasantly surprised by MS' conference, but I don't know how anyone can say with a straight face that Sony's conference wasn't far better. Sony's conference was something straight out of a fanboy's wet dream.

Isn't that supposed to be the point though... they are making games for their fans...



Making an indie game : Dead of Day!

Playstation coference was much better than Xbox conference.

This is the worst sony conference ever for me, simply because I have very little interest in any of the big suprise games . Why is a remake of an old game a big deal? I'm so lost.

And they didn't even announce that other game. They announced a kickstarter campaign. That has to be the most shameful thing I've ever seen. If the game is such a big deal why didn't sony just fund it?

Only the last guardian has me intrigued, but I never played the spiritual predecessors so I'm not really sure if it would even be my cup of tea.

What's your favorite game. That you REALLY love. Someone makes a remake. That's what people feel.

Maybe its just me, but if someone made a remake to my favorite game growing up... I wouldn't care. I'm not big on nostalgia. Give me new stuff. I can understand getting excited about a sequel to a classic game but not a remake. I guess I'm just not the audience for this.

I really thought that Sony couldn't beat Microsoft, after what they presented at their E3 conference.
Backwards compatibility, great games, even new Ford! I thought that this conference will be game changer, that MS will be back in game and will reduce gap between them and PlayStation.

But PlayStation crushed it, destroyed it, humiliated it. Just TLG and FF VII Remake and nothing more existed at their briefing.

But tbh both had best conferences in gaming history. So good to be gamer this days :D



STAGE you should really play TR Anniversary. It came out right before Uncharted and would really open your eyes as to how much TR actually owes or "stole" from Uncharted. Saying it wouldn't be where it is without Uncharted is really just flat out wrong, no other way to slice it really.

Anyway as I don't care about Shenmue 3 or a FF7 remake, Sony's conference was good but nothing spectacular for me. I'm bummed that they didn't announce any good new software/OS features for PS4. MS is showing a new UI with Cortana, which should be just about the most amazing console OS element ever, plus BC, plus early access. To me that's almost as good as most of the games shown, but then they also had great Gears 4 stuff, and Halo 5. Also Cuphead. Among others. Uncharted and Horizon looked great for Sony.



Like many people have said, I thought sony could not beat MS, then plesently suprised.

Just makes me think, what if nintendo pulls the same and blows everybody away. I guess just an hour till we know.



It takes genuine talent to see greatness in yourself despite your absence of genuine talent.

This site is filled with Sony fans. Show me any poll that is essentially Xbox vs Sony in which MS wins. These Xbox vs Sony polls are ridiculous on this site and have no meaning because of the Sony bias.

well they could annonce a full mobile support and leaving the game console industry ... they would create a more buzz then anything .... but not in a good way .

the blow can go bad or good at that point.
