E3. Though it does seem to be getting smaller and smaller every year while gamescom grows.

hmm, I dunno. I think TGS is still easily more important than Gamescom.

But mostly important to Japan/Asia, Gamescom is more focussed on the West/World.

While TGS definitely is more Japan focused, I think it's fair to say that Japanese games (like European and American ones) do have worldwide appeal though.



Bet Shiken that COD would outsell Battlefield in 2018. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=8749702

Always? How has it ever been Gamescom?

E3 is where the big games get announced or shown off for the first time. E3 is where new hardware is properly revealed for the first time. And so on and so forth. Until another show starts being the first place big games and hardware is shown off I don't think they can really claim to have the same, let alone more, importance than E3.

I'd have to check where all the consoles and hardware got announced or shown at the first time.



e3 is more important. Gamescom is like the continuation where developers are going to show you more of the same.

Well Xbox One X just got properly shown at the recent E3. The PS4 at E3 (since it's own event didn't actually show the console ). Both the Wii and Wii U were first shown at E3 (albeit announced beforehand). And the Switch was kind of announced at E3 under the codename NX (IIRC the only other info then was that Zelda was coming to it).

But now you're counting the announcement for 1 console and the first showing for another. ;)



E3 is the only one with MS, Sony and Nintendo so my pick is still E3

Regardless, if it's going to be shown/announced at a conference E3 is the most likely one for it to be at which is the point I was making.

Until Sony decided to ditch Gamescom in favour of Paris Games Week

Considering E3 seems to have the biggest everything, what makes people think Gamescom is somehow more important?
