Re: E3 2013 Discussion

Everyone's mileage varies, but I found the EA conference kinda weak, there just weren't many games there that interested me. Ubisoft's conference was better, but I'm disappointed that they showed no gameplay from Watch Dogs and Assassin's Creed 4. The AC4 reveal was particularly stupid, they showed a CG trailer with some fancy music, a guy came out and talked for a minute, then they showed an in-engine trailer with some fancy music... but no actual gameplay.

I'm noticing a trend at E3 this year: plenty of MMOs without ever calling them MMOs. Sunset Overdrive, The Crew, The Division... why can't they make singleplayer open world games instead of trying to network everything together?

The Xbox brand has never appealed to me. Xbox One really does nothing to change my opinion.

Re: E3 2013 Discussion

Sony's press conference should start any minute now. For some reason, Spike TV chose to air a second showing of Dodgeball: the Underdog story instead of covering it like they did Microsoft, EA and Ubisoft, but I'll try not to read too much into that.

I'm watching the live stream on IGN.com as well as the live stream on my PS3.

Re: E3 2013 Discussion

Wow, this is really boring. The MS conference was pretty much perfect, but this makes the Motion Picture look fast paced. Stop talking so much about nothing (aka. TV) and just show some damn games!

Yeah, after the XBO "TV TV TV" debalce, you'd think Sony would have known better than to devote 10 minutes to talking about TV.

That was an impressive showing of indie developers. I knew that Sony was pushing Indie this generation, but I had no idea they were this committed. Nicely done, Sony.

Re: E3 2013 Discussion

Final Fantasy XIII Versus has been re-branded Final Fantasy XV and will be on the PS4. I'm not sure that this half-a-decade development time thing is a good business strategy for Square Enix.

Heh, Sony just beat Microsoft. Supports used games, can lend to friends, etc, etc with no restrictions (so they say).

They're chanting "Sony, Sony, Sony".

Also, no need to check-in online to play games.

Sony just won E3. I'm actually dancing a little to this news.

That was brutal. I almost feel sorry for Microsoft.
