    E3 2014 Console War Thread

    Wanted to make a pre-thread about what's about to go down this evening. i'm excited, haven't been this excited since 2005. so many things at stake for all competitors. it is possibly "the" defining moment for all of the companies of what may happen for the rest of this generation.

    i'd like people to add information here that would pertain to console wars.

    such as "PS4 gamers must wait for Evolve and CoD Advanced Warfare DLC - Xbox One timed exclusives confirmed"

    and the fact that TF2 is coming out on PS4 as well.

    let the shodown begin!

    MS needed to win big. That certainly didn't happen. Sony did just enough to win it. The biggest news for X1 happened a couple of weeks prior to E3. Kinect-less X1. Nothing from MS yesterday topped that as far as announcements that are going to move more units.

    yeah it's kinda funny because they both pretty much spilled their beans before E3. Sony more so than MS because they just announced more.

    overall, while E3 was kind of OK, people forget that Sony still has plenty more games announced and AAA games too.

    I felt like Sony showed more games than anyone. I wasn't counting, but just feels like we saw a ton of stuff and a damn good mix of exclusives, multiplats, FTP, and indies. Bloodborne won it for me simple because it is an exclusive coming from a proven third party developer.

    i didn't see much of Sony's conf and saw nothing of MS' but yeah, from the "sound" of it, MS did not show much.

    but people expect more out of Sony so they are disappointed.

    what people don't get is that Sony could've easily just not announced H1Z1, H-Hour, TLOU remastered, Everquest Next, PVZ, Order 1886 and done it on E3 to make theirs look awesome. instead they chose to spread their announcements out.

    agree 100%. Variety won it for me. While not great, it was a good show by Sony. Solid B rating for me.

    It is but I was just going for a laugh. They should already have it along with a few other simple things like dlna and pausing downloads.

    Btw sufi the hardline beta is sweet. I like it more than I thought I would.

    Lol. Last post off topic, I do understand what u mean and so far it seems the bs we dealt with bf4 isn't there. The matches run smooth and hit detection seems great.

    well that depends on how many players the game has. if it has less than 64 players then we weren't really getting problems with 32 players on BF4 either.

    Simply put, Sony won. MS announced nothing that gained the momentum that they needed.

    People talk about "but but but, MS has more exclusives coming out in the 2nd half of the year" . Forza vs drive club, project spark vs little big planet. Then there's halo and fable. MS should be fine this holiday but so will Sony due to people buying multiplats on the ps4 more than the xbone.

    but that halo is not a new game, those are like the remasters. unless we're talking about a proper built-from-scratch halo game that was a remake. even then it's not a new game.

    Having all the original maps and gameplay untouched, Halo collection should do pretty well. If MS fails to beat Sony in Nov and Dec, MS doesn't have a chance to ever come back imo.

    of course they do. these companies are not that soft. when sega went out like that, it was shocking. i think sega could've survived but they just didn't see it that way. MS will find a way to keep their momentum going.

    as for beating Sony? well, we already know that won't happen. maybe if they had laid their cards right, priced it low to begin with, heavily subsidized Kinect (dem deep pockets after all), things may have been different. but i don't see it happening in the current state.

    Sony nailed it imo. A good mix of games, features and hardware. The playstation ecosystem is unsurpassed.

    I agree. Both shows had their ups and downs. But to me, Sony showed more games overall.

    Ah I see. I read it another way lol.

    @MS, really, Kinect could've been so much more. imo that would have been the most exciting thing except VR. which is funny because i mentioned that the next step after Kinect would be VR...like 2-3 years ago. XD love being right.

    MS's actually had plans for VR. Fortzella glasses that works with kinect was in their leaked 2012 document. They were supposed to reveal it this year according to the document. Followed by their online cloud game service for 2015.

    well, moving towards the right direction. i remember that rumor btw.

    so what exactly is coming out for X1 this year? I do know about the Halo remakes. what else did they announce? there's sunset overdrive. i'm speaking about other new announcements.
