    PLAYSTATION Ghost Of Tsushima - 5 Things They Didn't Tell You At The Showcase

    This was my game of the show. Graphically nothing touched this. Gameplay was exactly what I wanted. Tenchu + Way of the Samurai with a 1st party Sony budget. Can't ask for more.

    PLAYSTATION Sony Conference: June 11, 6 p.m. PT

    I forgot that PS4 got some nice console exclusives from the Square Enix conference too: Babylon's Fall and The Quiet Man.

    NINTENDO Nintendo Conference: June 12, 9 a.m. PT

    I think I enjoyed Nintendo's e3 direct the most of any of the shows. What it did was convince me to actually get a switch. I have a PS4 so Sony's conference obviously can't help me there. But Xbox's conference did not convince to buy an XOne. In fact, it pushed me to wait as it almost seemed...

    XBOX Xbox is Playing for Tomorrow, but it's playing to win

    It's a good effort, these acquisitions, but they need to do a lot more if they are trying to win. Of these five, only Ninja Theory was an impressive purchase, seeing as there was no indication of it before, and their only other exclusive title before was a Sony game (heavenly sword). Playground...

    PLAYSTATION Sony Conference: June 11, 6 p.m. PT

    7.5/10 Show for me. Just felt off overall. but nice surprises. -And most of that score comes from GHOST OF TSUSHIMA. HOLY SHIT. THAT WAS EASILY THE BEST LOOKING GAME AT E3. THE SWORDPLAY OMG. HOW IS THIS OPEN WORLD AND STILL MANAGED TO LOOK BETTER THAN GOD OF WAR??? -Spiderman looked great...

    XBOX Microsoft Conference: June 10, 1 p.m. PT

    Um. No. It is in decline because its selling less and being rated less than in the past. COD and BF take up far more mindshare than Halo does, Halo can point towards those two as the main reasons for its decline. It's no juggernaut 90+ MC rating game anymore. At this point even a series like...

    Knowing you over the years and how highly you rate exclusives (like me), you won't find much to be impressed about. They do seem to be laying the foundations for a greater future tho so kudos to them. What's here in the now however, is very underwhelming.

    XBOX Microsoft Conference: June 10, 1 p.m. PT

    I totally agree. I was awaiting DMC5 for so long and then they finally show it and it...looked nothing like I hoped. Very disappointed. Character designs are awful, like Enslaved from Ninja Theory awful.

    XBOX Microsoft Conference: June 10, 1 p.m. PT

    7/10 show. Great pacing is mostly what gives it that score, which is better than what I rated past MS shows, but still weak as I rate exclusive showings the most highly and it was still very underwhelming in that aspect, most of those were timed exclusives being paraded as actual exclusives...

    Sony E3 2018 press conference dated, features "deep dives" on Death Stranding, Ghost of Tsushima, Spider-Man, The Last of Us Part II

    I hope there are some new 1st party announcements though. I am super hyped for Ghosts of Tsushima and Death Stranding, but I am lukewarm on Spiderman and have no interest in TLOU 2.

    Sony will increase 1st party focus starting April 1st

    I'll be honest I felt like Sony's 1st party output was stronger during the PS3 years, but that's to be expected since games take more time to make now. (Their 3rd party exclusives are better than they have been in a long time however) So this is good that they are increasing 1st party output...

    See this Tech Demo? Sony Santa Monica has already surpassed it. According to Cory Barlog, their PS4 game currently already tops that. But on the other hand, he doesn't even expect it will be ready to reveal to the public by E3 2015! Which...

    Kingdom Under Fire 2 e3 2014. PS4/PC. Out this year. This will be the game PS4 fans play until next year comes. That, is undeniably 'next gen'. A massive-scale hack n slash RPG with RTS elements that you can switch to on the fly. Also has towns and citizens to interact with...

    Rate Sony's E3

    I will give it a D+. For reference sake, I gave MS conference a D. Sony's conference started out promising, hit a plateau where it was doing ok, and then plummeted with TV and video shit and ended by at least confirming that they have the best looking exclusive--by FAR--among any consoles out...
