I watched both and as much as I love Demon Soul's and Ratchet, MS had the better conference. Sony's event outside of the above 2 games had nothing else that interested me. Whilst Microsoft's event wasn't exactly a 10/10 affair, there was enough announced/or shown there to get me far more excited for what's coming next gen. Fable TLC was my jam back in my youth so I'm super hyped to see it coming back by a studio that's got a pretty damn impressive track record so far.



Why is the Switch one included in the poll? It's not really a big direct at the same level.

Just so people can vote. I thought about putting just PS5 and Xbox event... but on both PS and Xbox presentation thread I saw people talking about the Direct so I thought about leaving it here.

And truth be told for some people probably even that Direct would be more on their interest than both MS and Sony show.

Sony had the better presentation of both exclusives and in general games overall. I would not count the latest Direct in here, since it was barely 8 minutes long compared to the hour long presentations of the other two.



You know it deserves the GOTY.

However that is why the best out of the three. It was over so quickly! :D



 

Wasn't it PS event just a part 1 while Xbox showcase was part 2? If so, i can't answer that right now, I'll discuss my opinion after state of play show in August 6th.

Adding the 8 minute Direct isn't even fair. It had like four games and none of them were heavy hitters. PS5 and Xbox Series X were pretty on par with each other. I give a slight edge to Microsoft, because of my love of Halo and WRPGs. I am really looking forward to Halo, Avowed and Fable of the games shown for Xbox Series X yesterday. For PS5 I am excited for Horizon 2 and Ratchet.

Sony and Microsoft will be holding events in August. I'd expect both to showcase more games.

Well sure I can make another thread whenever SoP in august is done and we can do Part I and II of both shows compared. But for me even if we put both shows of MS together it doesn`t stand over PS5 one. It is a 7 for MS and 9 for Sony imho.

I don`t mind removing it. I didn`t put the Direct on the pool to mock or anything, it was just so people could chose it if they wanted, and it got votes.
