Cross-platform games are probably going to have a some form of touchscreen interface anyway thanks to the Wii U, so developers wont have to develop specifically for Smart Glass, they can just port whatever they were doing for Nintendo's console. And, much like Kinect, Microsoft is going to push developers to use the new features even though only a fraction of the players are going to use the feature, particularly for their first party games like Halo.
I can't imagine playing Halo with a touchscreen on a separate device from the controller. Here, let me just put down my controller to pick up my smartphone and change my weapons and -- fuck, I'm dead. Unless the entire game is controlled with the touchscreen, which is all kinds of wrong.

EA: Shooters and sports.

With a tiny dash of SimCity.

Both EA and Microsoft's presentations seemed a little weak. The Smart Glass concept is interesting, though I'm sure it came out of two thoughts: "How can we use tablets and smartphones with the console" and "Oh shit! Nintendo's going to have a tablet with their next console".

I haven't watched the Ubisoft presentation yet. Is it any good?

Watching Ubi's show and there are trying to crack some really GOD AWFUL jokes like every show they do...there doing girls having girl wood (aka erections for games jokes) NO fucking shame...
They actually made me miss Mr Caffeine.

Other than that, Ubisoft had a pretty good conference. ACIII looked great, and Watch Dogs went from being a game I've never heard of to something I'm going to keep a close eye on. Looks like it might just be a next-gen title.

I just came here to post that exact video. Ubisoft is definitely picking up the slack left behind by Microsoft.

Re: Official E3 2012 thread

Any Idea why GameTrailers aren't doing their 2 day show (or does it begin tommorow) when its on from like 10am-4pm or something like that. I caught it last year and it was very well done with interviews and segements etc.

Quantic smashes it out of the park again with that sneek peak of "Beyond: Two Souls"

Beyond: Two Souls does look interesting from a story perspective, but what's the gameplay like? For all I know this could be a new Tetris game.

Anyway, it does look interesting. I'll be keeping my eyes on it, but I can't get excited over a cutscene.

Well looks like the Vita is dead. I was hoping that Sony would learn from its mistakes and turn the Vita into a true competitor for the 3DS, but it's not to be. Time to go buy a Game Gear.

Nice.

So... am I the only one that thinks the Wonderbook is going to flop?

Watched too much of this.

New Tomb Raider = Uncharted: Lara Croft

All racing games = Burnout

Ubisoft presentation was cringeworthy and painful.

Is it me or our developers getting a bit less nerdy? Many seemed well groomed and dressed and even fit. Ed Boon's white canvas belt aside.

That Wii U Pro controller seemed to undercut that crazy controller. I don't think they can serve two masters here, they should commit to their madness. That said I'm still not sold on that controller.

G4 should run uncensored coverage at night, some presentations like Farcry 3 was like one long beep tone. Though the tits must have caused fits in the control room.

Sony's presentation felt a little limp, MS and Nintendo are pushing envelopes and Sony was more of the same. Of course, it remains to be seen if those ideas are half-baked but they're interesting.

Unlike some of you guys in this thread I find myself using devices during TV viewing. Whether it be surfing the web during a sitcom or hitting IMDB to look up an actor or what not so I'm curious about the smart glass stuff. I was quite surprised about the inclusion of iOS and Android devices.

"Now I know what you're thinking -- this 3DS 2D Mario game looks exactly like the Wii U 2D Mario game we just showed you, but don't worry it's a completely different game. In this version you collect coins!"
