Forums - Gaming Discussion - So come on then - who had the best conference??

Personally I think Sony had more games to show, Nintendo had some potentially huge announcements (WiiFit and WiiBoard) and Microsoft had a solid but fairly unispiring conference.

Your assesments are well made.  I can't wait to see what all this balance board is capable of.



To me, both Sony and Nintendo won this. Different audiencies, but both very exciting. I lean more on Nin, but that's totally personal taste. I'm just not very much into action stuff (shoot, slice, blow, race...).



Reality has a Nintendo bias.

I didn't really find any of them impressive. You may count that as a Sony/Microsoft victory if you want, as all things being equal I would definitely be more excited by the Nintendo stuff. =P

I just hope there's still stuff they haven't showed us yet. Last year they did stuff like announce SSBB after the main event, so I'm pretty hopeful.



I wasn't really impressed by anybody, by MS's showing was definitely the worst. Bad timing, too. Halo 3 can't come quickly enough.



1) Sony
2) Shared Nintendo / Microsoft

Of the two runners up Microsoft had the most impressive titles, but nothing we hadn't seen before except for some IMO not really impressive Viva Pinata minigames and IMO with the most impressive title shown Assassin's Creed which is a multi-platform title shared with the PS3. Nintendo showed Wii Fit which may not appeal to everyone, but I liked it, it seems like a modern version of the Amiga joyboard from 1982.

Killzone is awesome!



Naughty Dog: "At Naughty Dog, we're pretty sure we should be able to see leaps between games on the PS3 that are even bigger than they were on the PS2."

Nintendo played it cool and low. Sony went all out to make the PS3 look beautiful and they did.



Overall, not really impressed by anything. No earth-shaking ground-breaking surprises whatsover. I rate the E3 conferences overall a C-. As predicted, this year is pretty much blah. Even the PSP redesign was kind of glossed over, though it addressed the main flaws -- it's smaller, longer battery life, and shorter loading times.

We'll see if the hand-on from the showroom floors and back-room demos bring up anything exciting.
