I think he usually talks about E3 being their biggest ever. Of course, it usually ends up being the same thing. And last year's was pretty lackluster.

They had the best E3 last year based on many sites

Xbox sites I'm sure. Ubisoft flat out outshined everyone last E3.

Yep E3 2017 was really lack luster, so much so Ubisoft had the best conference. Found my ratings for last years e3 in this thread.

Ubisoft - 8/10
Nintendo - 6.5/10
Sony - 6.5/10
Microsoft - 6/10
EA - 2/10 

A very dull year.



That sounds about right. I'm particularly fond of his whole "we're looking into doing something a little different at E3 this year, which I'm very excited for...." spiel he does every year. Then they roll into E3 and do absolutely nothing different from every other show they've done. Good stuff.

My rating

Nintendo : 8/10

MS   : 3/10

Sony : 2/10

Others : I don't know



My prediction in 2021.

SW: 30m

PS5 16m

XBS: 7.5m

Spencer took over four years ago. That's sufficient time to see results from the decisions he made. (Game development takes years, so new leadership can never provide immediately visible change.)



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

Also always say "This is the most [insert something about games here] in the history of Xbox" at every E3 conference.



Pretty much his playbook, yeah.

Sony's last E3 was better than MS's...
Ubisoft was slightly better than Nintendo that year too.

MS had Athem Marketing.... and like 40 forgettable indie games (I cant even name 1 today from that E3)
Sonys E3 was def. better than MS one.

 

old quote from E3 2017:

Thats alot like my thinking (score wise too).

Ubisoft >  nintendo = sony > MS > EA.

I would say this OP is accurate.

Azzanation: "PS5 wouldn't sold out at launch without scalpers."

Why you gotta do Phil like that?
