Why Sony Kicked The Competition's Ass At E3 2010

For the second year in a row, it seems that Sony has kicked a ton of butt at E3.

Sure, we already knew about that massive Twisted Metal unveiling at the end of Sony's press conference (thanks, Dave and Scott!), and in my honest opinion, that alone was enough to give Sony the edge. If I were to compare across the board, I don't see how either Nintendo or Microsoft could compete with what Sony has on tap for us in the coming year; once again, it comes down to the exclusive stuff. Although I'm not the biggest fan of motion-sensing technology, I was far more impressed with Move's presentation than Microsoft's Kinect. I don't think the pricing is as low as it should be for either, but then again, people can go crazy for this new technology stuff... Then there are the exclusive games and let's face it, Sony has owned that category for quite some time.

But now, giving us looks at amazing Killzone 3, Twisted Metal, LittleBigPlanet 2, and Gran Turismo 5 content, it becomes very clear that PS3 owners should be very, very happy right about now. 3D is obviously designed with the PlayStation 3 in mind and that ought to be mind-blowing (provided it's done correctly), and I swear, I thought I'd see swine flying by my window before I saw Gabe Newell on a PlayStation stage. Portal 2 is just one of the great upcoming games for the PS3 (and can you believe he said it'd be the "best version?!"), and of course, we can look down the road to stuff like inFamous 2 and Uncharted 3; the latter will probably hit hard at next year's E3.  That right there will give Sony the advantage in 2011.

Look, I'm pretty overloaded on E3 stuff right about now, but I think my conclusion feels right. The exclusives that continue to push the industry? Yeah, you know where they are (as much as I will adore Gears of War 3). And now, I'm going to take a break before I die.

It was a bit of a disappointment for me actually. Sony did a great job, but it's because there are plenty of large games that never made an appearance.

Agent is not shown at all.
No word on Final Fantasy Versus XIII.
Some gameplay of The Last Guardian would be nice, at least a trailer.
Announcement of Uncharted 3.
At least show Resistance 3 existed.
More remakes of HD PS2 games.

As Peter Dille said on G4, there are lods more games that they could have talked about, but they had time limits. Heck they ran two hours as it was. Information about those other games will come between now and the Tokyo Game Show.

Anyway, for the 2nd year in a row, Sony kicked Major(Nelson) a$$, & took names!!!!!

The only underwhelming part of E3 to me was Cole(if that was really Cole).It seems that Sucker Punch wanted to make him more appealing to all the dudebros out there.I also wanted to see a new PSP to combat 3DS but whatever; Sony still took it.

yeah did they give a timeframe for the release of inFamous 2? I forget.

I think although inFamous sold well, it didn't pick up the kind numbers it should have so they are dumbing it down. Oh well I'm still excited for it.

Yeah, I think he'd be ok for a npc bystandard that you save in a side-mission (or maybe not), but Cole? Hopefully there is enough time for them to make serious revisions, and hopefully we can get an official Psxextreme poll results conveying our thoughts to them.

They are certainly adding a lot more to the second game.

Yea Playstation did a pretty good job, especially with the move and 3d. Has anyone been on engadget recently? They seem to be very pro-xbox with their e3 coverage. I mean really, just because microsoft finally brought their console up to specs does that really deserve a front page article?

Why do they call this new 360 a "slim"? If anything it's more squat. Even the xbox folks aren't the least bit convinced that it will be reliable. Well, except for the xbots of course, who still maintain A) the last one was reliable or B) who cares about reliability?

The only non-Sony-presentation that piqued my interest was LoZ Skyward Sword. I love the Zelda games and Link looks better than ever. But besides Skyward Sword and all those kick-ass third party announcements there was nothing else (hand-helds don't interest me :P). So yea, obviously Sony stole the show =)

Now I'm totally hyped for TGS. Who knows, maybe there will even be some interesting announcements at GC (Cologne) later this year.

There's an almost overwhelming amount who said Nintendo won... Maybe it's just deluded fanboyism... I don't see how they possibly could top Sony, the only thing that really looked interesting to me was the new Kirby sidescroller.

Nintendo's big advantage imo are their infamous, exclusive characters. They're so powerful that even with bad graphics, they still win the hearts of many gamers. I honestly feel this way for characters like Mario and Donkey Kong actually.

This is something that Sony and Microsoft will never have (especially MS). Sony at least are heading towards Nintendo's direction with memorable characters like LBP, Ratchet, Jak etc. The only memorable character I can grasp from MS is Halo and the buff dude from the Gears of War game.

Listen, I like Zelda as much as you guys, and I'll definitely buy it; but come one, this will be the same game we've already played a dozen times.

Nintendo has perfected the skill of repackaging and selling us the same (with minor game play mechanic tweaks) Mario and Zelda game time after time, and we buy them because we're a sucker for those franchises.

In my opinion, the last real innovation with those franchises was the jump to 3D with the N64. Since then, Nintendo has rehashed the franchises again and again.

Give me Pikmin 3!

Nintendo starves its fans for content for years and then when it does finally throw them a bone, they go wild.

Which is not to say that the AAA first-party games (like Zelda and SMG) aren't excellent, but they would be lost among the dozens of AAA Sony titles.

I actually missed Microsoft's presentation this year cuz I was busy but Sony's was well done for sure. They need more Kevin Butler style hype though.

Is Konect or Intact or whatever functioning very well yet or did they only have premade videos?

I'm no fan of handhelds but it sounds like there is no chance of a PSP2 for awhile since they were touting the PSP would be on top "for years to come" in its little milieu.

Biggest surprise for me: Also Gabe Newell being forced to eat crow. Biggest disappointment: the fact that the PSXE secret exclusive was TM.

they showed plenty of kinect at the m# show, not much better than it was last year, it does have some voice recognition software. You say "Xbox play" and it will play the movie you're watching, or "xbox pause" and then it will pause the movie.

i would pass on watching the microsoft conference if i were you. i wanted to have an open mind so i watched it, plus the sony conference wasnt up yet and sony is taking too damn long to release their press conference on psn. anyway, watching the microsoft press conference was so brutal especially when they presented kinect and its games. i just kept hearing lie after lie, like how their games keep pushing graphics and stuff, i dont really remember their wording. when they talked about amazing game experiences on the 360, they used halo, gears, and Call of duty. they made it sound like it was an exclusive game.

As for the kinect presentations, everything was crap, especially for a core gamers perspective. thats how i saw it. i felt sorry for the people who presented and demonstrated the games. especially the little girl who presented the kinectimals game.

I think maybe and im not sure so correct me if im wrong. A lot of you didnt play or get into TM, or TM 2, hell even TM black was bad ass on the ps2.

I thought Nintendo took E3 until I learned the limitations of 3DS (headaches unless you're looking straight at it). I also thought all of Nintendo's announced games relied either on nostalgia or name-power (or both).

I'm still disappointed with Metroid: Other M. I think it will be the first Metroid game I don't play.

Maybe I'm just overtly biased, but I thought that Nintendo stole the show from everyone else. I'm a sucker for Nintendo licensed games(I'm looking at you, Kirby) and I personally think the 3DS looks amazing. I was also disappointed with Sony's showing. Admittedly, I think it would have been much more impressive if they had kept quiet about LBP2 and other various exclusives until the show. I also tend to dislike shooters and I'm not at all interested in Twisted Metal. And the final disappointment for me was a lack of any last guardian/Ico-SOTC HD remakes news.

I can't believe anyone cares that much about 3DS. A tiny screen that does 3D with about a quarter of the intensity Sony will do 3D and the tiniest fraction of the software.

Seriously, how long can we ignore just how far behind Nintendo is in terms of technology?

Their games are fun Ben. Most Nintendo titles are fun and imaginative enough that they don't need to match the graphical power that the PS3 and Xbox deliver.

In my opinion of course. :)

HA! Sony and M$ tried to ignore them, and look where that got them. Look out, here comes Kinect and Move!

Sony and M$ are probably hoping that Nintendo doesn't come out with a juiced up Wii, or Wii2. That thing could sell half of what the original Wii has, and it would still be considered a hit.

bah wrong post...

O-well...

Nightmare- I know your a fan of the wii, and although im not a fan of that console i am a fan of any and all games. I love some of the games the wii and Nintendo put out.

But this wont go on for much longer. Nintendo's system is stagnent and will remain that way. They will keep pushing out games to people sure, but as far as the gaming industry is concerned their 3ds handheld is a far better gaming machine than their flagship console! At least thats how everyone is making it out to be. Thats sad really despite sales numbers! Nintendo needed to show a new wii, too not keep up but to at least show enthusiasm for the entertainment industry. Sure the wii hit hard, and was great for about 5 sec. But now Sony and M$ have both gone through and changed some things. Sony re-branded and brought us a cheaper more efficient machine, and M$ just released their new console. While Nintendo is making a 3ds handheld. Where is the wii hd, or wii 3d. Im sure one will come i wont be surprised to see it. But in terms of technology Nintendo is so far behind its unreal.

I think Sony had a great top-to-bottom show, but Nintendo had the 3DS, and that thing looks super cool. Sony's 3D technology may well be great (and let's assume it is, even though most of us haven't seen it running yet) but it will cost THOUSANDS of dollars for everyone to get the new TV sets necessary to run it. I'll be one of those people who take the plunge some time in the next 12-18 months, but that's a huge purchase. 3DS, by all accounts, has great 3D, a jaw-dropping lineup of games already in the works, and worst case the thing will cost what, a couple hundred bucks? that's cheap enough that a lot of us can pick it up on an impulse buy. And it's a portable. There's no other portable that is even close to doing what it does.

3DS is going to have a MGS game (still unclear if it's a MGS3 remake or another MGS3 sequel, either way that's AWESOME), Kid Friggin' Icarus, polished 3D remakes of some truly classic games (3D Ocarina of Time!) and you know every last developer out there is going to make sure their best franchises make an appearance on the thing. For those of us who love gadgets, this thing sounds like a no-brainer.

Will PSP2 be able to compete with that? I'm sure Sony will have some VERY good tricks up their sleeve. But for now, I think 3DS sounds just awesome.

As always, IMHO, of course!

While I am not a fan of the whole "who won E3" mentality I definitely agree that Sony had an excellent showing with a lot of really solid games coming up and Sorcery got me quite excited for the move. That said I also was stoked on Nintendo's conference and can't wait for the 3DS and all the brilliant looking first party games as usual.

It looks like Wii and the PS3 can have a really healthy co-existence (Dead Space 2 coming with an HD version of Extraction sounds awesome)while their exclusives make both worth owning in my opinion.

I think gamers really won E3 and as far as kicking ass goes well.. It looked like Microsoft really had it in for Microsoft this year. They came out looking pretty rough.

I too have been hearing that Nintendo owned E3 because of all the names they dropped. Myself, I was cringing at the terrible graphics I had to endure during Nintendo's conference.

Zelda looked like a Mega Blocks game, 007 was a graphical mess and what kind of Kingdom Hearts rip off is Kid Icarus?

The Wii showed it's age at E3 this year more than ever. SMG2 might be the last game I play on that system.

If that Goldeneye game was 720p with proper online and chat it would rock all kinds of boxes of sox.

Sound effects were good though. Did you notice that?

How they looked is subjective i guess. The new Zelda looked great, Donkey Kong looked good, Metroid other M looked good, and probably the best looking of them all was Kirby Epic Yarn. The Wii doesn't need to have PS3 graphics, their franchise are tried and true and despite having slightly better then last gen graphics the games are some of the best and creative on the market. Their use of color alone has been better then most games this generation.

And their quality too. No screen tearing or bug issues unlike MW2 and Assassin's Creed.

:)

EDIT: Though, i will agree that Golden Eye wasn't a very nice looking title.

No your not the only one. I agree with you and wish the Wii at least supported 720p but when all is said and done their games still look good and perform even better. I can't recall ever having frame rate problems or tearing issues on a Wii game. Especially one made by Nintendo. Maybe its because its not in HD, who knows. Also even with the lower graphics i games like Mario Galaxy and Metroid Prime look better then some multiplat PS3/Xbox games graphics engine wise.

And yes I'm disappointed we have to wait until next year for Skyward Sword but the fact is we still have ti wait till next year for a lot of games and besides, with Metroid other M, Kirby and GT5 all coming this year, i can wait a little longer.

I also read the demo they showed at E3 was the concept code. Not exactly how the game will look in the end. They said they have a ton of ideas and want to make sure they are all done right, which in the end will be worth it given my satisfaction with them in the past.

That's odd...most of the hands-on 3D reviews I've heard (that didn't come from fanboy-types) said it was just OK and that they'd rather stick with 2D unless the 3D got MUCH better. They said the lower quality video to achieve 3D is very obvious and almost looks cheap.

To do 3D you have to render twice the number of frames, so 3D is often rendered at a lower resolution, and also it tends to be done with fewer post effects like FSAA because there simply isn't the CPU/GPU resource available to do it. 3D really pushes the limits of what we can do with the current consoles.

I think Sony has finally made it clear they are and will be the industry leader. Seems so obvious at this point(especially after this years E3)that even biased gaming media outlets won't be able to spin for MS anymore without looking absolutely ridiculous.

First thing I noticed was how during all the kinect demo's the ppl were keeping their hands glued to their sides, because if you wave your hand your xbox starts doing stuff, it brings up the menu for one.

So good luck watching a movie with your kids. "now kids, don't move or you'll bring the menu up in the middle of the screen during the movie."

"But mommy, I'm only five I don't sit still well, especially since I just ate chocolate cake."

3 hours later, "well kids I guess we should stop trying to watch the movie, the movie keeps getting interrupted by your moving around and ppl getting up, so we'll try again another nite."

I watch all three conferences and MSFT was the worse. BORING, BUT Nintendo was actually pretty good.

Now even though I love my ps3 and was excited about what's coming up...Nintendo's conference was the best.

What I took away from the press conferences is that Sony is moving forward with their system in that they are finding new and better ways to exploit its potential. Where as the Xbox360 and Live have pretty much achived its zenith...there isn't a whole lot left, except a few (and getting fewer each year) exclusive titles and COD map pack DLC timed exclusives. The fact that Sony and M$ both are delivering motion control kind of negate eachother leaving a consumer to ponder: Blue-Ray, built in HD, free MP access, free access to your Netflix Account, built in Wi-Fi.

I thought both Sony and Nintendo did very well.

Microsoft was lacking. In fact, their conference created more questions than it answered.

For example, why does Kudo Tsunoda have to wear dark glasses when talking about Kinect? Is he trying to bluff us "poker-style" about it's functionality? Will I have to run into my TV to move forward in a FPS?

Also, what percentage of Peter Molyneux's promises can we actually believe, and what color will the Ring Of Death be on the 360 slim model?

They are two different peices of tech so what if there was no interference for the move?
The fact is people who played it on the floor had no problems and it worked so their problems on stage mean nothing other than looking a bit silly at the time.

The rest of your comment isn't related but I am stoked for the move and sony's 3d tech. Kinect I haven't seen anything worth while from.

Well I'd like to point out that I missed out on most of the first 10-15 years of video game and have been trying to play catch up over the last few years. Due to this I didn't go through all the nintendo years playing zelda, kirby, metroid, and most other big name games. I did play the first mario however.

I am here on this site because I like the community and the website, it's unbiased and I like it, because name means nothing, I simply want the best, I don't care who makes it, I want the best console.

Now, looking at e3, I watched everything in hd on satellite, caught every moment, on spike, g4tv, and everything e3 related.

As far as M$ goes, they failed, plain and simple. Their exclusives failed to impress, simply redone shooters and nothing else. Kinect had so many issues, must sit still while using menu's and watching movies, must be careful what you say so you don't bring up the menu when you don't want to.

As for the little girl and her animal thing, half of it was the little girl just acting out a script because half of what she did had no effect on the game. Their new xbox is still not as good as ps3.

As for Nintendo, if you are a long time nintendo fanboy, they brought you all the names that you've always known and loved. As for me, I don't have a life long connection to any of them, so here's what I saw. Most of those games looked like games you could download off of psn. Half of them while they had famous names, were simply side scrollers.

007 didn't look any better than the n64 version which is sad considering the 10 year difference. Even zelda could easily be a downloadable title for psn. I can see and understand why a nintendo fan would be pleased, but playing games like that just don't hold a candle to todays games.

In truth sony won in my eyes, but not as much as they did last year. I never played portal so Gabe showing up was amusing to me, but I expect everyone to eventually have their brain work. Portal 2 might end up on my radar but it doesn't look like my kind of game.

KZ3 was announced early which was dumb, but shooters aren't my thing so even tho it has 3d and move is nice, but still not overly wow factor to me. Twisted metal, while I look forward to playing it, is still not my favorite play style, will I get it, yes, does it wow me, no, I expected it.

The most impressive thing to me from sony was sorcery and the fact that they are releasing so many games for ps3 and psp. I have the hardware and I love new games, so they proved that I will have plenty of options for a long time.

In the end no one blew me away, but sony showed the most improvement and most game variety.

Nice Kraygen.

GoldenEye looked exactly the same as it did on the N64, and that is VERY sad. The only thing Nintendo had that I wanted was Metroid:Other M (also the stupidest title ever, but I want it.) I love Zelda games, but I've gotten out of them now that I would have to flail around on the couch for 40 hours to beat them...

As for Portal...just go play it...it is insanely fun - great physics and challenges, and GLaDOS is actually a great character in a game.

Let's look at the highlights.

Microsoft had CoD map packs through 2012, 6 exclusive games, a baby step towards cable TV and Kinect. That was it.

Nintendo had their '3D' DS model (rolls eyes), Zelda, Zelda sports?, Mario Sports?, GoldenEye, Epic Mickey (Epic fail?), Metroid, Kirby and Donkey Kong. Seriously their 3D game push is a handheld device? Are you kidding me? And Zelda, Kirby, Mario and DonkeyKong (should these be mentioned separately?) aren't these the same games that Nintendo has been pushing since the N64? Nintendo is pinning it's hopes on a 3D handheld with a 4-inch screen. 3D on a 4-inch screen!? Oh yeah, that'll be awesome.

Then Sony came with new games, new technology and franchises that span the old consoles and new franchises. In terms of the number of games announced, Sony far exceeded either of the other two. Sony showed 3D games, remastered PS2 games in HD, Move, PlayStation Plus, 70 games upcoming for PSP, and some major block-buster titles for PS3 coming this year. They also showed exclusive elements in numerous 3rd party title not least of which was Valve with Portal 2.

There is no point in comparing the motion control technology on offer here. Move clearly has better precision, response and control options. Kinect brings nothing to separate itself, everything it can do can be done with the PS Eye.

No one else has 3D gaming, only Sony.

As I pointed out in a previous post, Sony has a multi-layered strategy. They start with the base platform - the PS3. The PS3 supports HD TV, BluRay, 3D, and digital downloads. By supporting these key technologies in one single device Sony can drive HDTVs, HD video (BluRay), 3D TVs, online services and downloadable content. Not to mention games of course. All of these are open technologies that are supported by multiple manufacturers - except of course the PS3. With the PSN Sony has a way to funnel customers to it's services and content Throw in the PSP as a complementary product with the PS3 for content and games on the move, and now the Move product itself and you have a vertically integrated multi-layered product and services strategy. The best thing is that the majority of it is open to others and all of it builds on/from the PS3. $ years ago I was saying that Sony was in this for the long haul and that the PS3 was not going to go away. That has never been more true. If you compare the products and services that Sony can offer through the PS3, or related to the PS3 it dwarfs those offered by the comparison and really brings the entire weight of Sony to bear on the market. The PS3 supports other Sony divisions, just as those other divisions are able to support the PS3. Sony has, I think, pulled off a remarkable triumph. People thought that they were insane with the development costs, but I think they may have been far smarter than we thought - in the long term.

As for this E3, Sony won - without a shadow of a doubt.

Do you roll your eyes EVERY time Nintendo is mentioned? It is actually pretty good excercise for your peepers because if you are going to buy into the 3d, you will have to roll your eyes every time you take off the 3d glasses to center yourself again.

Come on Highlander, open your mouth for Nintendo!

This is what I hear from you. Wiimote? Sony did it first with EyePet. 3DS? Fisher Price did it first.

Let's just enjoy what these companies are trying to provide for us. If I try the 3DS and it sucks, I will be the first to admit it, but I'm at least going to try it before I bash it.

Seriously? Look, 3D is fine, but on a 4-inch screen? For it to be viewable without glasses it's using the same prism technique as the view master. You know that's true. That's not massive innovation.

I'm not anti-technology at all, bet lets be serious. You and I both know that the 3D on the DS is a tad on the gimmicky side, and you and I both know that Kinect is little more than a slightly souped up PS Eye. What do you want me to do? Should I ignore the deficiencies of these supposedly innovative technologies?

Guys, Highlander is right. Nintendo has fun titles to be sure. And depending on your interests, it DOES have a lot to offer. But speaking strictly from a technological point of view, Nintendo does NOT stack up. They will sell based on nostalgia and cuteness with an added bonus of it being slightly better than the last nostalgic and cute experiences you had with them. Side by side in a direct comparison of technology only, Sony dwarfs Nintendo. I don't get how anyone can argue against what Highlander says about technology.

If it was an argument about whether or not Nintendo will be fun or if the new Nintendo stuff is an improvement on the old nintendo stuff, you might have a case. But it CANNOT be compared to Sony. Only to itself.

I think E3 is an exciting time. It is great that the big 3 get to show off their stuff, and we get to talk about who had the better show!

Lets be honest for a second though, nost will agree that Sony had the best line-up of games. Although Nintendos was quite impressive when compared to last years, We finally have a date for GT5, the long time TM fans finally get a new TM game. Sure Nintendo said something about Zelda and a 3d handheld. But why sint Nintendo putting that technology in their flagship console? Ill tell you why! Nintendo knows that they may have gotten a lot of sales out of the wii, but with Move and Kinect coming they ultimately know they cant keep up in the long run.

Its very clear though that Nintendo is winning the hand helds, and thats where they will continue to push. I wont be surprised if I see a wii hd, since rumors have been reported, but since i seen a 3ds before that, personally I dont think Nintendo is pressed for pushing there wii system any further. If they were now would have been the time to convince their audience to stick with them and the wii console. Sure great games speak volumes but again they are just holding consumers back for a better experience. And when I say that I dont mean the games are not fun, i mean a true home entertainment experience!

Thats just what I think. Again I wont be surprised if I see a upgraded wii. But im a bit dissapointed and surprised it didnt show up before the 3ds. That tells me Nintendo doesnt belong in the big 3. Thats just my thoughts though, who am I to say!

If nobody bought the Wii, I would agree with you saying that Nintendo doesn't belong in the big 3. But in the long run, sales determines relevancy. I really want to see a Wii HD, or Wii 2, or whatever next console they have up their sleeves. Only problem is... the Wii keeps selling. Nintendo president came out and said the Wii has stagnated. Odd to say due to the fact monthly sales are still in the lead by a comfortable margin. But he said it none the less, and that tells me they are probably pushing for the next advancement, ie. next console. I don't see them settling into the hand held market exclusively. Lets not forget, the Wii won this generation hands down. Maybe not if you consider the 10 year cycle, I suppose after 10 years, the PS3 will likely sell as many Wii's, unless there is a WiiHD, and you count that as just a juiced up identical console. Nintendo is still a strong, and thank god for that. I don't want to see it become the "big 2".

I disagree. With the wii winning this generation. Sales say a lot I get that but 90% of the people i talk to who won a wii, say its now boring. Not surprising considering thats how i feel. So if sales alone give a console a win I agree but thats not true in my eyes.

A winner, is the company that has pushed the boundaries, gets constant praise, and pushes games every year. The winner is the company and machine that supplies gamers with the most bang for your buck, and is constantly trying to bring new and exciting things. Thats not nintendo.

Now let me also say this I have a wii, and it got played for awhile, and hasnt been turned on for months now. and when it does get turned on its for a few moments, just to play super mario bros or something ive downloaded. I have 3 games in my wii library, (ive played more but cant warrant many of being purchasable) thats barely 1/16 of the ps3 games I have. For two reasons, one I dont have the income to purchase games for two consoles. And two Would I rather buy GOW 3 or super mario galaxy 2? Mayeb I should use a game close to galaxy 2's release so ill use Red Dead Redemption. regardless how fun galaxy 2 was theres no question which games is going to win. I can never buy a wii game over a ps3 game bcause they dont offer everything the PS3 does!

Im sorry but the wii is stagnent, and considering that came from Nintendo they know its true. Dont hide behind it!

Big, you make good points, and I agree with a lot of what you say, but you saying "...constantly trying to bring new and exciting things. Thats not nintendo." I have to say...it isn't Nintendo?

Who started the motion sensing game craze? (highlander, I don't count EyePet =) Who did the Wii balance board, who did dual screen hand held, who did a 3D hand held? That sounds like a company who is trying to bring new and exciting things to the gaming community.

I certainly share your frustration with the lack of good games to come out for the Wii. When you look at the sales charts, the Nintendo made exclusive games sell well over 10 million, which is amazing, but, past that, there isn't much.

@MyWorst,

Try playing High Velocity Bowling. It's a Sixaxis title that uses the Sixaxis to simulate a real bowling motion. Having played Bowling on the PS3 with High Velocity Bowling and on the Wii, I can say it's a very similar experience. The Wii experience edges out the PS3 for me, but that's because I was playing in a room where the entire end wall was being used as the screen with a good projection system. It was very immersive and made the experience much better than it is playing on a TV.

That said, High Velocity Bowling is one of the better Sixaxis games and was available in the first year of PS3.

Dual screens on the DS are not the innovation that matters, the touch screen and microphone are. You could do everything on the DS with one screen, but not without the touch screen and microphone. I honestly don't think that the 3D on the DS is anything other than an expensive gimmick designed to get 40 million DSi owners to upgrade - again. You can call me a cynic if you like, but it's the truth.

nightmare-

I hear ya for sure. But again I go back to whent he wii first released. Those things you talk about are what drove the wii, now its got nothing left in the tank. All that stuff was released when it was doing very very well, its prime. That has slowed because Nintendo isn't doing anything else. They are concentrating on their hand held. If Nintendo put out a new console, or atleast a new type of peripheral (like the motuion control or balance board) there is no doubt in my mind people may start clammoring for that again. But Nintendo hasn't done much in the way of improving the wii system for quite some time. While Sony is constantly pushing forward not just as a company, but psuhing the industry. Sony has everyone on their heels.

Thats my point. I think Nintendo has realized the wii can not keep up anymore. Maybe it was never intended to. But with move coming out, and the complete entertainment system that thwe wii is not, consumers will sonn catch on. Granted those numbers will still be there, but as a consumer im quite dissapointed. On the other hand very happy with what Sony is doing. And evebn though six-axis wasnt as big of a hit as the motion controls, Sony was right there in the swing of things in terms of being innovative at that time.

Well, I will certainly agree with you in regards to the article not going into very much depth as to why Nintendo and M$'s offerings didn't match up. The article is titled "Why Sony Kicked The Competition's Ass At E3 2010", but it only highlights Sony's good points, and didn't talk much about Nintendo or M$'s good or bad points.

Bottom line, it wasn't a very detailed article, and perhaps Ben didn't mean it to be, so in that regard, he did open himself up to your critizism.

He did mention he was beat, so maybe he didn't have enough gas in the tank for any more than what he gave us.

Agree with you. Sony sap so much time on MOVE with only a few actual games to preview.. left you a bitter sweet taste in your mouth. Twisted Metal was nice.. but it looks blend. Sony's presentation ran long & tiredsome but atleast enough info spurred out to enlighten me, my console will give me a vast amount of gaming variety.

Microsoft was far the weakest. Kinect.. ugh, Kinect is just so lame. Gears was least impressive & Halo Reach looks like any other shooter.

Nintendo has Wii f'n Party!!! 'Nuff said

My console of choice.. Playstation? Why? Because of choice. Because of variety. It does everything. I hated Wii & it's pointless motion crap. But now I'm sold with HD motion crap. And really looking forward to it

Try reading it again. It's just an editorial and it's not a comparison of all three companies on various merits.

I OWN an Xbox 360. Bet I've had one longer than most. But that's not the point. It's just based on Sony's E3 press conference and nothing more.

It's not just the article, but with a community that I have usually seen be pretty intelligent and open minded about the other consoles, I have seen a new side to PSXE. Nintendo is bringing back a lot of the characters and games that helped most of us as we were getting into gaming and that is a bad thing? People saying that they are behind the times when they brought controllers into peoples hands that have never held them before? How many handhelds have 3D? How many of us here are really going to be playing PS3 in 3D (on a 3D TV, that is) any time soon? I'm sure that once the E3 dust cloud moves on and all this news fizzles things will return to glorious normal. For now, I'm saddened by this close-minded behavior.

The very definition of close-minded is to cling to the past in a vain effort to prove that nostalgia somehow always equals better quality.

I'm older than most here. The NES was actually my second console, not my first and the SNES is still probably my favorite consoles of all time (it's permanently hooked up in the bedroom). But if you're trying to tell me that the predictability of another Zelda (with a fraction of the technology we now have), a handheld version of what of course will be superior on larger screens, and other announcements that do absolutely nothing but remind us of the way things "used to be" is better than what Sony presented...

Well, that's your problem.

I never said Nintendo's was better. I also realize that the graphics are lacking in some titles. If you look higher up in the earlier comments I said that Nintendo and Sony had equally great shows. I'm not clinging to the past, as you say, I am enjoying the things that come from it. So it's ok for us to be excited about Twisted Metal (Which I am but it is definitely from the past) and not Kirby or Donkey Kong?

There is another part to that definition of close-minded that is intolerance of the beliefs and opinions of others. It isn't just about new to the world ideas, it is new to you as well. Someone who refuses to watch black and white movies for the simple fact that they are black and white is close-minded.

I would love to play my PS3 in 3D, I would and I know it will be fantastic. It is not in my finances right now. The 3DS is a more feasible option for me for 3D.

I guess that is my problem too.

Baloney that's what you said. You asked who the hell who would be getting 3D on their PS3s right now; you didn't say you wanted it. You didn't say it was your opinion that you liked Nintendo; you said it was a good thing seeing characters and titles that got us into gaming; you didn't say anything about graphics or how you think Sony's conference was any good.

That's called back-pedaling, my friend. An editorial is not supposed to be politically correct. If it is, it's just news. PlayStation fans are fans of PlayStation; most people here aren't saying Nintendo is junk; in fact, many members are saying the opposite.

Sounds to me like you're just butt-hurt that Nintendo isn't getting equal respect on a PlayStation-oriented site where fans gather to have fun and chat. If so, stick to CNN. Don't go insulting me and PSXE with a completely unwarranted holier-than-thou attitude.

I'm not hurt that Nintendo isn't getting the respect I feel they deserve because as you said, I am on a Playstation site. However, I would think that as gamers, we would acknowledge the fact that Nintendo had an impressive show. I just did a piss-poor job of conveying that fact.

Those hating on Nintendo just don't get it.

Their games are just as artistic and innovative as LBP (let's see you all hate on lbp now)

It's art

They don't need the most realistic graphics ever

Just watch Zelda Skyward Sword become one of the most compelling gaming experiences next year.

Right. As we have always said in the past, we can't really compare the Nintendo Wii to the HD consoles of Ps3/360. For that, I personally think Nintendo did THEIR job of bringing back memories of video game characters that started gaming for a lot of people. Last year, Nintendo was weak, but this year they have delivered by showing us a lot games, and top that off with the very innovative 3DS.

What we can compare and say is that Sony really did outperform Microsoft because they're actually quiet similar to each other (advanced graphics and technology in their games). Wii is just a totally different thing, so we can't completely say Sony out performed them in almost any way.

It is close between Nintendo and Sony, but I've gotta go with Nintendo just for the nostalgia factor. Zelda, Kirby, DK, GoldenEye, It's unfair to expect other companies to be able to compete with those franchises.

Twisted Metal had me excited at the start when that ice cream truck music started playing, but as the demo went on it slowly look less and less like the Twisted Metal I remember and more like any of the generic shooter games of this generation. Snipers? Seriously? and the factions just seemed to bland everything out.

But the Move looks amazing, by far the best technology of the sort and Sony is best equipped to go forward, but Nintendo just pulled out all its cards and pretty much cheated to get my vote.

I think Sony came in a verrrry close second, but thats because wii isn't a hd console. I haven't had the need for a console other than a playstation sence the ps1, but finally nintendo came with something that accually interests me. I'm from that era of gaming where I remember playing the origional Zelda. The nostalgia factor works real well in nintendo's favor, I think. They also gave people pretty much all they've been asking for for years in one conference.

On a side note, it was pretty slick of Reggie to announce the 3ds right before sending everyone off to the Sony conference. Discounting the 3d glasses, then having everyone hang around to play Zelda and to check out the 3ds. Everyone kind of gave each other this look at the sony conference later when they had to put on the glasses.

Tell you what, you watch 3D content on your 4-inch DS screen, Bigrailer, and I - and all the other people living in reality - will watch it on a 40-50 inch 3D LCD. I can't believe the number of people who seem to believe that the '3D' that Nintendo is pushing in the 3DS is even remotely similar to actual stereoscopic 3D. It's not. I know there will be thumbs down a plenty for this and I don't care, the truth isn't always popular. the 3D in Nintendo is achieved through an optical filter not unlike that used in the Fisher Price 3D View Master. Deal with it.

Yeah, Sony could definitely do better, but there are time limits. I thought too much time was spent on the move, especially the Tiger Woods demo. Sorcery turned out to be a lot better in showing the Move's capability than I initially thought though. That was fine.

If not the time limit, perhaps they just didn't want to show those games yet.

I don't mean to be an old sour puss ut i was not impressed by Sony's show at all, i have never cared for Twisted Metal so that news was water of a ducks back.Same for GT5, and Killzone 3. Also Move, still disaprove of it.

I am looking forward to LBP2 on the other hand.
The only thing i found really interesting was 'The 3rd Birthday' which was less than a minutes worth of footage, but it is looking good.

I feel weird admitting this but i thought Nintendo did the best job with their DS. The line up they have for that console is looking very impressive, i was never really interested in the DS, but if this line up proofs to be good, i may concider buying one... we'll see.

hell no sony were a massive disappointment this year.
yet again the industry hypes something up as the second coming, and yet again it fails to deliver.
ninty were actually quite impressive this year!
new diddy kong, new goldeneye remake, new zelda game. this may finally push me to get a wii.

sony on the other hand, i was worried they would focus on move and sadly i was right.
there was not one announcement in sonys conference that was exciting or worth hyping up.
in fact the best most exciting thing that came out of sonys conference is the news that portal 2 is coming to ps3.
and thats not really big news to me because im not really interested in portal 2.

ive been watching E3 since 2007 i think it was, ever since i got a decent net connection.
this year is by far the WORST! conference ive seen!
i thought playstation was all about pushing the industry forward, stretching the limits of what is possible.
not cashing in on some stupid kid motion control BS games!!!!!!!!!!
how dare sony (and M$ for that fact) defile what E3 is all about!
E3 is about blockbuster industry defining games, not kids games the freaking ps2 would of pushed out!!!

Sony did an amazing job once again, they hyped up what fans want GAMES and More GAMES, the Move is a great price point (i'm sold), and the speeches were amazing and professional.

Kevin Butler's speech was epic btw. I love that man! if I wasn't already married LOL....

M$'s was asstacular who cares about the kinetic and their remastered Wii sports games,seriously thats all they could come up with was to copy Nintendo on every aspect of their family fun games, the new 360 looks like an alienware rip off with a PS3 shine, the price point for the kinetic a total rip off, and don't get me started on the dumb videos of families playing games with the kinectic. I could go on and on and nit pick here and there.

For Nintendo, I thought it was A O K, not the best E3 they have had but sweet and to the point no bashing very professional as well thats what I like about Sony and Nintedo. Zelda Looks great can't wait finally able to use my Wii LOL, Epic Mickey still not sure oh that, the new 3D Ds not understanding that well at all I always thought u needed glasses, Highlander u need to explain this to me.

Overall Sony of course stole the show I was hoping for a BIG KH 3 announcement or Baulders gate I think I need to take those I wish games and put them in the YA right never happen folder.

Whoa... way too many comments. Alright, haven't seen any of the presentations but read everything that I possibly could on the topic of E3 (from my three usual sites at least), and I'm inclined to agree with Ben. Sony won hands down, AGAIN.

Microsoft had five big exclusives, one of them that we still don't have the name for, the others at least on the fourth iteration on the title (I'm counting the Lost Chapters as a separate game for Fable). They also had MGS:Rising. Outside of that, they had the Kinect (a glorified Eyetoy, and they claimed a live demo, but why then did the actions and gestures not line up exactly? Maybe it's not as accurate as they are touting. Not only that but it's still laggy. I remember hearing about that little problem about three months ago. Lag of up to five seconds between you performing the action and the camera registering it. HA! ENOUGH YOU!), a bunch of Wii-knock-off types games for it, and some real spin-outs. And the 360 slim (watch the Xbots pounce all over that. So what, they've finally got wireless capabilities in the box? Bit late to the party guys. Also, you had to call it the Slim, it just goes to show how you are trying to cash in on Sony's success. Oh well, we knew ye well.). Anyone care to add anything to that list because I can't think of anything else.

Nintendo on the other hand, came out with something different. They dropped all of the stupid little peripherals that they've been announcing for the last couple of years and brought on what the gamers want... GAMES! The problem is this: Kirby, Zelda, Mario, GoldenEye, Pilotwings, Metroid, etc., etc., etc., all rely on the nostalgia factor. They are fighting on dying legs. What they should be doing is introducing new IPs that can interest gamers, and using these alongside their staples, thus generating interest for the future. In addition to this, they lifted the lid on the 3DS, another new, more powerful DS with layered 3D, which is actually what I was expecting (well, to be honest I was expecting layered screens with electrical currents generating the different images on the overlapped screens. Way too complex I guess), as well as a few games to go onto that system. They didn't really bring anything new to the table this time around. Sony has already done 3D, or they'll be doing it soon, and they were the first to jump on it.

Sony too brought games. And like Nintendo, they were focussed on sequels and remakes, but they are, in general, far more recent than anything the Big N showed. Killzone, inFamous, LBP, Dead Space, Gran Turismo, Twisted Metal, all of them, outside the ones involving cars, are relatively recent. Obviously Sony showed off more and announced seventy titles for PSP by the end of the year. They brought the Move, which in my opinion is the middle ground between the offerings of the other two. It is more accurate than Wii and more responsive than Kinect, and combines the technology of the two in the Eye-Move collaboration. Pushing 3D is also obviously an important move for Sony, because they are hedging their bets to use the PS3 to push a new medium, AGAIN, and I have no doubt that they will succeed, especially if film companies have their way. I feel that Sony was right to not display a new PSP this year, and it would be wrong to do so next year also. They should let the PSP draw its final steps in the next two years, then announce its successor in 2012, along with the initial teaser for the PS4. Not only all of that, but think of what Sony has withheld, and will likely be shown off later in the year: Agent, FFvsXIII, WKC2, Last Guardian, Resistance 3, Starhawk, and Kaz Hirai only knows what else. Sony may have seemed stupid in the beginning, but their strategy is starting to pay off big time. Fear not, for once more, when the smoke clears and the war for supremacy of this generation is complete Sony will be standing tall above the competition, a triumphant grin plastered over its face and the heads of Ninty and M$ grasped in its blood-drenched fists.

I think that that is more than enough ranting for me tonight. I've got exercise to do and Red Dead to play.
Peace.

I disagree with the "dying on fighting legs" part. New Super Mario Bros Wii out sold Modern Warfare 2 (by 3 million copy's and that was with the media bombardment and media hype for MW2) on both consoles combined. These Nintendo characters are still alive and well in peoples hearts and that audience is only growing with the Wii and DS's popularity.

Guarantee you the other franchise sell like that or close to that upon their release. Not the sign of "dying" franchises.

By my count Microsoft showed 6 exclusive games, two were expected sequesl, one was already known about and has been talked of for months (Reach) and another was as yet unnamed with an unknown launch date (The Forza title). It was basically very thin on games and as you said, they were trying to chase Sony's coat-tails with a Slim model and the MS EyeToy.

I think the reasoning for me disapointment is probaly due to the good line up we have already had this year, i have already had Final Fantasy XIII, I have already had Heavy Rain. so there next projects are still in early pre-production.

A new Devil May Cry would have been nice, or a new Burnout or Resistance 3 or Silent Hill 6, but there was nothing on any of these.

Edit: Lol as soon as i type that I look on gametrailers to see 'NEW SILENT HILL' typical... but exciting :D

i'm sorry, but the psp line is outdated like the wii's last gen graphics. the psp debued in 2004. now, when you see the iphones, blacberrys (maybe), and or droids, they offer fancier features. like maybe an actual web browser instead of a downgraded one for example. you might not run out to get the newest psp. the psp is ps1's graphics with a ps3 store that let's you buy movies, tv shows, and or ps1 games. i don't hear how outdated the psp graphics are. even on there most current game. hey, let's call the the psp the downgraded wii. does that work for you? sony's newest aaa psp games is an equivalent to the wii's 2d games. all of this talk about TWISTED METAL, TWISTED METAL, geez. i didn't see too many people get too excited over the next gow psp version. gow3 looked good, but not as good as ff13 as an overall quality, heck gran pulse alone was bigger than the whole world gow3. granted, they made gow3 in 3 years and took what, 4 to 6 years to make ff13. ff13 (to me) may go down as being the best looking rpg period. with the exception of the steller movie cutscenes, the in game and regular cutscenes were damn near identical, except for very slight differences. i often wondered what kind of budget or production it took make a game of this magnitude (ff13).the fact that both gow3 and ff13 maxed out at about 35 to 40 gigs at 1080p for ff13 and 1080i for gow3 is a baffleing to me. could you just imagine if ff13 the game was followed by a manga or anime series? gow3 was short and the endind sucked. and the so called hype after gow3 was a psp title? was that it? when the admin. was hinting at an exclusive, it almost implied that it was a game that they literally had to fight xbox for. like maybe a metal gear ps3 sequel, dragonquest, a renamed version of gears of war. someone please tell me that they are making a sequel to metal gear solid and that it's an exclusive. and i'm not talking about mgs rising. it's been 2 to 3 years right, since the last ps3 metal gear solid. what say you.

You do understand that the PSP Line being 'outdated' is not actually an issue. The PSP is primarily a media device and not a web browser or phone. What matters most on it is the games. And despite the current trend to fawn all over Apple and their iPhone and iPad lines, the games on those devices are, by and large, casual games that are graphically inferior to those on the PSP. In therms of controls, the PSP has all the standard controls one would expect where as those other devices do not. You can complain it's outdated because it's browser sucks, but you can't really say that the games on the MFDs like the iPhone are better or more 'hardcore' games.

I like my iPhone and the iPad is a cool device but I'm not about to go out and buy one for gaming. I only own 3 games on my iPhone which i rarely play. The PSP is just fine. Sony just needs to keep pushing games like MGS Peace Walker, The 3rd Birthday, God of War etc and ill keep playing it.

@marcusfrommo

LOL @ you sir for the comment about PSP graphics being similar to that of PS1. My PS1 could not play movies, and it most certainly did not have the graphical prowess of games like Peace Walker, Crisis Core, Dissidia, GOW, etc.

Of course, it's hard to take any argument from you about graphical quality seriously, since you don't notice much of a difference between gameplay FF13 and CG FF13. Both were spectacular, but the differences in detail were DEFINITELY not marginal, as you suggest.

Also, I own an iPhone and a PSP. I've gotten games for my iPhone, and they can be a pain in the buttock to play. I own FFII on both PSP and iPhone, and it is far easier, better, and faster to play on my PSP. Of course, I'm crazy for not buying an iPhone for gaming, right? And crazier still, I'm sure, for wanting my PSP to be a mobile gaming console of choice.

Sony had a very good conference. Killzone 3 is looking insane, we got a GT5 release date, Gabe Newell wrenched his foot out of his (huge) mouth long enough to announce that the PS3 would be getting the BEST console version of Portal 2 (I can't believe how many xbots are whining and crying all over the web about that), PSN+ will be free for 3 months, we're getting Dead Space Extraction for the Move as well as Dead Space 2, etc. etc. etc. I wish they would have shown more exclusives, like Agent, Motorstorm Apocalypse, The Last Guardian, and the Final Fantasy stuff. It did get a little slow in the middle of the presentation with all those montage videos and PSP stuff, but they finished up really strong with Twisted Metal. Although I'm not interested in Little Big Planet, it looks like they've done some pretty awesome stuff with it.

Nintendo had a very good conference. Immensely better than last year with Cammy barring her teeth at the audience. They focused much more on their "hardcore" people, it almost (but not quite) made me interested in their games. Their biggest problem was their presenter - he seemed really pissed off that those nasty journalists had said that the Wii wasn't wasn't selling as well as it once had, and maintained his angry attitude throughout the entire presentation. Dude, smile...it won't kill you.

And then there was Microsoft. Dismal. A few minutes at the beginning about their hardcore games, then it was on to ESPN. For those of you who don't already have three or four ESPN channels plus a dozen other sports channels, well, maybe that was interesting. All the major sporting events are on the networks anyway - ESPN broadcasts classic bowling while football season is in full swing. And Kinnect. Ewwwwwww... Games that make the Wii look like a supercomputer in comparison. And they're still trying to fake everything they can get away with. In that Forza car walkaround you could easily see things happening on screen before the person who was supposedly controlling it had done anything. I especially liked the guy who was demonstrating the menus. Notice how he was extremely careful to keep his hands below his waist whenever he was talking? In other words, if you get a hand in front of the camera, you will be flipping through menus, no matter if you want to or not. The dance game was obviously not 1:1 motion tracking, various movements of the player would trigger pre-rendered movements of the avatar. The one thing that did attempt to do 1:1 tracking was the yoga "game". You appear as an orange blob on screen, I'm guessing because there's not enough processing power left to give the player an avatar. We have seen the "potential" of konnect, and it is nonexistent.

Kinect has several 'issues' not least of which is that the 360 is doing all the image processing and other work to do the motion tracking which limits how much CPU there is left over to handle actual game code. Hence the Wii-tastic avatars in games.

I liked Sony presentation but I can't igbore Nintendo ! I own a Wii and I can say without any doubt that the Wii Motion and the games that support it rock even if they are geared toward a younger audience !

The new Zelda looked good as did the new Donkey Kong Country ! If Sony can get the Move to react half as good as the Wii Motion, then the Move will have changed me but until I see and experience the Move I'll reserve my judgement !

I agree Sony gave the best E3 show, a whole lot of people say Nintendo came out on top, yes the 3DS is an impressive piece of hardware that will do very well, but I cannot help wondering if all these people saw a different conference than me, as it did not deliver that much to the core gamer.

The PS Move is a sure buy for dead space extraction alone, I also expect it to work with Portal 2 to give the best experience on the console. I like Kinect and see it has some limited application, but they are LIMITED I may pick one up when it is in the bargain bin in a few months time.

i don't think that my comment at this point will get anything new,there is around more than 200 comments over this article,dude thats awesome,
i used to like the WII and Nintendo products and the way that WII were meant for family wise game console
but with providing a great system like move for PS3 I'm sure that this will get a lot of WII's owners attention for the PS3 , Sony is going at the right way into covering more gamers base
i expected Sony's e3 press to be great but i was wrong
its not great
its so awesomely amazingly great IMO there was nothing to thumb down at it
the only this that has my attention outside Sony's press was the NINTENDO but still i cant imagine a mature guy would carry a kid's console like that ,i think this machine would be a great opportunity for Sony to study the 3d technology for a hand hold console and its effect on the market and acceptance by gamers to get better planning for the next PSP2
in general i can see that Sony is doing it right covering more gamers by providing everything on PS3. 3D games ,move based games ,hardcore games ,free online games ,games for all ages ,a great online community ,more reliable machine , and this list can never stop growing

I actually went through and read all of that, man people can get emotional. I'd like to point out that the press conference doesn't really have a point system or anything, so really, who won, is a matter of opinion.

We all have our reasons why we believe this company or that company won, but in the end it's due to what appealed to us. Doesn't really make anyone wrong or right, just means we all know what we're looking for.

I pointed out earlier how I felt and why, some ppl agree, some don't, that's cool. I know the truth. ;)

I wanted to see The Last Guardian (never happened), a new Kingdom Hearts 3 (never happened). Resistance 3 (again another no show). I knew Rockstar would not be there as was Agent etc. I wanted them to be but hey ho cant have everything the show would have gone on for longer than 2 hours, (well if they cut Move down from 45 mins to 30 mins) then it may have squuezed a few more games in.
Overall I enjoyed the show and the news that came out.

The ending was a bit of an anti climax to me when Twisted Metal was announced. This was simply because I have not played a game of this before. The demo got me interested though it looked great fun and now I cant wait to play it.

Sony's conference was the best. Kevin Butler did not disappoint. Twisted Metal was expected, because I remember in a certain part of Twisted Metal Head On for PS2 it hinted at Twisted Metal coming out on the PS3.

I guess Sony is saving the PSP2 for a different video game show like Gamescom or TGS maybe.

Do you guys know that you actually have to be standing up for the thing to work? Because it has problems scanning you if you're sitting down!

All the cool things about it go out the window if you are forced to be standing up! Who's gonna wanna navigate menus and watch movies standing up?

I will have to disagree with this post. I do not care how many thumbs down I get because of my opinion. Must best bet on the best E3 of the year is Microsoft. It really is a plan flat out winner as really Sony really doesn't come close to dominating the E3. Before I get more in depth, I still prefer the Playstation 3 over the Xbox 360, this is just my opinion. I will talk about the biggest 3 on my list, Kinect, Call of Duty Exclusive DLC, and the new Xbox 360 Slim.

Kinect:
Yes, the idea may not be entirely original, but it does do justice for the fact is is extremely interactive and precise. It uses a motion capture bar instead of a camera, so it will be a precise motion control device. It has very good games such as MILO, FORZA and let alone a Star Wars game! Those 3 games alone are impressive! You can control the menus with the palm of your HAND, which makes it ideal for any user. There's not doubt in my mind that Kinect will achieve significant sales as to many consumers this is something different. There are thoses ready to put the controller down.


Call of Duty:
Why is this a big deal? Well, because it just is. Xbox 360 has always been the console to play FPS's on. I mean the series plays better, looks better and sells better on the Xbox 360 over the PS3. Don't get me wrong I still think that the PS3 version is good, but it's 2 biggest problems is the frame rate and lack of DLC. Frame rate, is a big problem with many multi-platform games as really it is much easier to program for the 360 over PS3. SO developers are lazy and port it over to PS3 poorly making bad games, not to mention the RSX is a little weaker in terms than the XENON(check out at technobuffalo/consolewars on youtube). DLC is big one because there are simply enough die-hard COD fans that care about the DLC and want it. Believe it or not it is one big selling point, and also to throw in that 360 will get all DLC for COD until 2012, if I heard correctly.

New Xbox 360 Slim:

Probably, the biggest one out the three. Microsoft has really come far out their shell as the new Xbox 360 does actually look very good. Big improvements such as built in wi-fi "Whisper Quiet" and the new infer-face relocations really make it a must-have. 5 USB ports and all the media ports have been redone superb. 250 GB HDD that is easy to remove with no screw driver hassle, not to mention it has more space than the current 120GB PS3 Slim and costs the same. The console also stole our touch buttons and kept the stupid original disc tray. Very nice looking as really looks more of the kind of technology you would see today, nice sleek and formula-1 look too it. No matter what, Microsoft has really out done the rest this E3 and I hate to say it but yes, I look forward to get this Xbox 360 Slim sometime later on.

Can you please explain this to me...

How is someone supposed to act like they're holding an invisible wheel for more than 15 minutes? Wouldn't that get tiring? Try it, try holding your hands out for 5-10 minutes, it's not as fun as it sounds (doesn't really sound that great either). And I don't know if you realize this as well, but the person was ONLY controlling the steering, not the acceleration of the car! That SUCKS.

And I dunno if you read my post, but do you realize that you HAVE to be standing the whole time for the camera to scan your body correctly?

SINCE when do you drive a car standing? I do see Kinect adding some cool features to SOME games, but I don't see any hardcore games that will focus entirely or even 50% on Kinect alone. It's just so limited!

What happens when someone walks behind you? What happens when someone shouts out something in the same room? What happens if you're playing in a noisy house? What happens if you try to swat a fly, and the damn thing thinks you're trying to start playing a movie?

ONCE AGAIN, ONE MORE TIME. YOU HAVE TO BE STANDING FOR THE THING TO WORK!!!

The Xbox 360 Slim is hardly anything special and it is NOT true that recent CoD games have framerate issues on the PS3, nor is it true that multiplatform games are better on the 360. That's all old-fashioned and completely false.

After looking at the newly re-designed 360, for the life of me I can't fathom how anyone's calling it a "360 Slim".

It's not slim!!!1

What it should be called, is by a more rightful name of...a "360 Squat"

I mean, come on now, even Keven Butler would tell you that this new "360 Squat" looks like it was compressed under one of the wheels of a 500 ton Terex Titan strip-mining dump truck.

Im with Ben on this Sony killed it, the move spotlight was tolerable and primarily they did what they always do, bring the games. Nintendo had a good Nintendo conference but that's always my problem with them; when you put them up against the competition they always look lame (except this year because MS's conference blew harder then a cat 5 hurricane). The fact that their games are innovative should not be an excuse for slacking off in every other way. Nintendo fans are far too forgiving imo, Ninty gives everyone the shaft for the last 3 years and completely starves the console of good games and now just because they are actually supporting their console with more then exercise games and gimmicks everyone goes right back to forgiving them? 1 good year hardly forgives the last 3 imo.

As for 3DS its impressive at first glance but when you look at the tech specs its not all its cracked up to be. I don't find the screen size very appealing either (nor its native resolutions for those screens), the DSi XL should be their new default screen size as the DSLite/DSi are too small for me. Either way Sony will likely let Ninty test pilot the 3DS and then release a PSP2 that does everything 3DS does but better, just like with their home consoles.

Im also not understanding the Zelda love here? The new Zelda will be the first in the series I never play. Why? Too much motion, I don't have some 400x400 sq-ft room to play games in. I refuse to stand up while playing a game(I work all day and exercise every morning when I play I want to relax)and there is just way too much motion in this new title, sword swinging I could get use to but that in addition to the nun chuck flicking for blocking, rolling the bombs and all the other controls...... Ill pass thanks.
