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.

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.

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.

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.

I'd say leave it for now. I am hoping we get a bigger Nintendo Direct soon. It stinks having no idea what the Switch will get in terms of releases this holiday season.

Ok, will leave it... if I see to many people complaining or bashing Nintendo because of the Direct I`ll remove so it become strictly about the 2 shows. Or I can put an edit on OP and have the Directs from January to July together since MS and Sony didn`t had smaller shows before for these games.

As a known Nintendo fan, I will not be voting for the Direct because that really wasn't intended to be a major showcase like the other two events.

I've not seen the entirety of the other two either so I won't vote up top but of the bits I have seen, it's definitely a Sony win here.

lol, Switch? 

For real though, as far as events this year Sony is still winning. 

As far as Xbox is concerned...Phil really likes to hype stuff to hell and then disappoint people so I think he should stop doing that.

I think MS's press conference had more games that interested me personally while Sony's press conference showed what we could expect from next gen games.

I think Sony's press conference was better overall as they showcased a lot of things at once. We finally got to see what the console looks like, we got to see a taste of some next gen technologies such as ray tracing with ratchet, we got to see SE's next big project and etc.

Microsoft's press conference started a bit meh with Halo looking pretty current gen visually however the gameplay looked really fun. As it went on, it got better and better with things like Stalker2 as well as giving us some names like Avowed and Fable. We already knew what the Series X looked like so obviously, there wasn't any big hardware reveal. The best thing about it is that all of those games will be available on gamepass.

While neither press conference showed off the Infamous SS level of graphical upgrade. Overall I'll give it to Sony.

Lol @Switch option

Very fair comment. Now if you would put all Directs from January to July for Switch, would you consider it better than PS?

I'd have to go back and watch the earlier ones.  I don't recall them too well at the moment.

No problem. I ask because I haven't entered but seem a thread of someone complaining about the bleakness of releases announced for Switch so far this year even though we have already had ACNH and Paper Mario with both doing from good to great on reception and sales.
