That was the most rubbish press conference I have ever seen.
If you don't like indie games that have a price tag above free, there was NOTHING, I repeat NOTHING at all.
They basically confirmed the death of the PS Vita. Yeah we have the Vita, here are 3 ports of games that can be bought for $5 on Xbox 360 / PS3 and PC already and a handful of indie games. No first party support, but we cut the price...
No game announcements for the PS3 (no surprise though).
Showing off 15 indie games I can find in every appstore on every smartphone already was just embarrissing to watch. And most of them are either console exclusives or timed exclusives. "We built the most powerful console - here are games you can play on Windows 95!"
I had a chat with 2 co-workers who are PS fans and even they said this was boring and a pain to watch. Whoever is responsible for this conference needs to be fired today.
What your score for the MS conference?
To be honest, maybe MS was smart not to have one. If you really do not have enough content to hype your product after E3 then its probably not worth spending all that money on a conference. I made this statement before that conferences can be boring if the info is not targeted to you. It appears Sony was not able to really bring anything people wanted and indie titles is not what people expectations are. People were expecting AAA reveals and that did not happen. Its why most people want to see a conference because they want to see the big stuff. Smaller stuff can easily be made known through the media.
I believe MS made the smarter move this time. Lower expectations thus you do not disappoint a lot of people.
