The most telling thing to me was that poll (in another thread on this board) that showed the % of games at the conference / platform. Wii & DS were the easy winners, and the Wii was up from 3% (last year) to around 15% (this year).

If the Wii (& DS) managed to dominate sales this year, imagine whats going to happen next year with 4x the software (if not more) launching for it.

 Can you find a link to this for me Shams? I can't seem to find it :X

What did Microsoft show to appeal to the Japanese?



Japan is supporting Wii and DS more stongly than the other 2, so this is logical..But you can spin it anyway you want, im sure some titles for the other consoles are classified as show-stoppers.

I've also noticed suprising enough, there were more Nintendo biased titles available at the TGS than for a Sony. The TGS really was important to me to decide if I would buy the PS3 soon or wait longer...and...I've decided to wait even longer. Unless there will be interesting announcements in the upcoming months or I can get the console not too expensive. Other then that I'll just wait a bit longer.
Though I have to say in general I'm disappointed about the announcements at the TGS, which weren't hardly.

wii and ds had the most titles on the show (well if you cancel out the cell phone), so this isn't surprising.



I was surprised at Sega's strong line-up, they have alot riding on their Wii games (especially Nights in Japan).



No one really won TGS,  it was just a really big preview of what we knew about already.  As far as picking anyone id say SEs big "For Playstation 3 only" after the FF13 and Versus trailers and the very favorable MGS4 floor reaction would equall plenty good will for the PS3.

I think the next Nintendo conference will be held in October.

A constructive contribution on your part as always.

Anyway...

I suppose popular media will see Nintendo as the more impressive at TGS just as they saw them as the more impressive at E3 whether deserving it or not. It seems the Wii and DS can do no wrong in the Media's eyes and people outside of the gaming culture in particular just want to love Nintnedo so much right now. I can't even tell you how many David Vs. Goliath P.R. stories I've seen in Newspapers and on the TV praising the Wii.

As for TGS, there is no arguing Sony had the biggest guns, but with favor seemingly fading away from their camp all the more in the gaming world its really getting hard for some analysts to look at anything the PS3 or PSP does now as being anything more than a hollow gesture. Not to bash Sony but its more than clear that they're struggling as a company, Blu-Ray is not the unstopable dominant force everyone had thought it would be and the PS3 and PSP are both suffering in their respective markets. And after LAIR and Heavenly Sword I think its more now than ever getting harder and harder for gamers and the industry to keep buying into the same hype that Sony is dishing out at this press events.

I don't think Nintendo stole the show at TGS, but then again I'm not popular media.
