Who Won E3? “Nintendo – 81.3%”

nintendo-3ds-e3-001-1

E3’s major announcements have been made, and observers are busily trying to work out just who “won” the event – most indications seem to suggest Nintendo dominating or at worst tying with Sony.

From some western gaming forum sources, as picked up on by 2ch:

e3-winners-and-losers-2_0
e3-winners-and-losers-1_0

From Nico:

nico-winners_0

1. Microsoft – 4.8%
2. Nintendo – 81.3%
3. Sony – 1.7%
4. They all sucked – 12.2%

The reasons for Microsoft’s literal release circus being ill-received are obvious, although just why Sony’s pathetically anemic announcements of the PS3mote and the marvelous news that PSN users can finally pay for access proved so impressive to western ears is not clear – manly Killzone action was perhaps the clincher.

Nintendo on the other hand presented an undeniably impressive lineup to go with its 3DS announcement, enthusing Japanese in particular.

    My opinion:

    - Microsoft: sucked ass. Didn't announce any new games we hadn't heard about yet, except Codename Kingdom. Kinect had only 1 interesting game: the Rez sequel. Big failure.

    - Nintendo: great conference. They announced game after game, most of which are going to come out this year. The 3DS also seems interesting with many games that interest me.

    - Sony: pretty average. Not a whole lot of announcements. Too much focus on 3D even though no one has such a TV. Heroes on the move, Sorcery, the shooting game and Twisted Metal... These games don't appeal to me at all (except for the last one). The price of Move is insane ($50 for the Move itself, $30 for the naviagtion thing + the camera).

    why cant anyone say that nintendo won because of the most =O showings, the sony stuff was just too obvious, a stupid 10 year old could predict sequels from the blockbusters dah.

    And Nintendo did more =O because it grabbed us by the ass and revived old franchises, soooo

    The diference here is that sony bets on its recent stuff and nintendo does it with the old.

    And fuck that sony jiji thats why i hate sony soo goddamn cocky.

    loool if nintendo made tv's sony would be in much deep shit, reminded that sony doesnt live only from the ps3.

    i dont have anything to say about microsoft ... its just bah ... thank Cloud that valve is developing for apple and i wish they all follow the example and stop making games for crapy bill gates bug central... for Cloud's sake even the xbox has bugs ...

    Uncharted 2 and Halo 3 are your big arguments for console based gaming? Good fucking grief Charlie Brown, the whole gaming industry needs to be shut down now if that's the case.

    So the Japanese are fawning over Nintendo.

    Anyone surprised by this raise your hand.

    No hands eh? Shocker. In any event, the 3DS looks awesome, but we all knew Nintendo would dominate the handheld market. Nintendo however is going to be fighting tooth and nail with Sony and Microsuck for the console market and that's going to be the interesting fight

    Nintendo clearly won by a long shot, while neither Sony nor Microsoft showcased jack squat. Actually, Microsoft did show off their new ugly trimmed down system, but as with all XBOX360 news, the only thing anyone cares about is that system isn't suicidal anymore.

    I concur that Microsoft's E3 PC was by far their worse, not just out of the "big three" but of all time.

    Can't quite tell which one was the best because I didn't sit through the entirety of either Nintendo's or Sony's, just watched the former's first part and the latter's last couple minutes, so I missed the 3DS debut and the paid PSN's announcement, although I catched the exclusives to Portal 2, the new Assassin's Creed and Mafia II, and the new Twisted Metal looked mighty good.

    I'm interested in Gears 3. Truth be told, I liked the campaign of the first 2. Kept me interested the entire way. It was much better than Halo. I wasn't happy at all with Halo 3 or ODST so why would I care about Halo Reach?

    The rest of the show was stuff for Natal. I'm not interested in Natal and that fucking little girl demonstrating Kinectimals grinds my gears TO THE MAX. And it's not because she named a tiger Skittles, though it doesn't help.

    There was also a lot of fake acting. Who were they trying to fool exactly? It's a presentation! Don't act like it's not!

    i've been following handheld nintendo GB>GBC>GBA>GBASP>NDS>NDSL>NDSi

    I stopped at DSiXL since it was just a bigger DSi.

    3DS is the next thing!

    And I'm going to buy the Kinect. It looks very interesting, nonetheless. I don't know why it suddenly needs to be bashed on so hard.

    Nintendo announced 3DS and a number of games.
    Microsoft announced New 360 Model and a number of games, and Kinect.
    Sony went into detail about PSMove and a number of games, and re-announced commercialism for the PSP.

    To be honest, from what was presented and what is planned by these three majoring competitors, I think Sony is going to have the hardest time keeping up. As much as it's denied, the Move is pretty much the same as the Wii controller. My bias view on this is that Sony's trying to get people to eliminate the Wii as an option by doing what they're doing. I honestly think it's going to be a fail.

    The new Nintendo 3DS is definitely going to sell. The new LCD technology is finally being brought to gaming, and to think it went hand-held first! This will not just sell, it will probably be revolutionary.

    The new 360's sole purpose is to eliminate the ever-so-common RRoD overheating problem. I'm sure that with the high amount of physical cooling improvements, they will succeed. The Kinect will be a revolutionary change for User Interface control for entertainment, and gaming. The featured possibilities surpass the abilities of the other consoles.

    Meh.

    I think it just depends on what you like.

    M$ = The same exclusives, that you know will be remade over, and over again. Mainly Halo, and Gears they will Milk that Shit!

    Nintendo = Most of the same Exclusives, Marios, Zeldas, Metroids, etc. But Nintendo usually brings something new to each one, that makes it different from previous titles unlike M$ in my oppinion and usually builds games from the ground up. The 3DS was fawking awesome, anyone who says otherwise with it's game lineup GTFO! The only problem with the Nintendo thing is the online. It just needs a new online like either xbox live or psn and it will rape faces.

    PS3 = They are trying different technologies with the Wii Rip off mote which actually from what has been stated is superior to the Wii's motion controls. Don't hate on it just because they are trying to improve on it, even if I my self hate motion controls. As for them going 3D it's something neither console has done. Even if 3DS will be a 3D handheld.

    360+PS3 = both have games, that are impressive nintendo won't be receiving because of the Wii's capabilities.

    -Mortal Kombat
    -Dead Space 2
    -Trinity Universe (ps3)
    -Silent Hill 8
    -Crysis 2
    -KillZone 3 (ps3)
    -Metal Gear Solid Rising
    -Blazblue CS
    -Splatterhouse
    -Dead Rising 2
    -FEAR 3
    -Assassin's Creed:Brotherhood
    -Little Big Planet 2 (PS3)
    -Portal 2 (fuck yeah!)
    -Castlevania (Hideo's!)
    -Batman Arkham Ayslum 2
    -Bioshock 3
    -Atelier Rorona

    So guess what guys Nintendo isn't the only one who got them games! lol

    True. They did only show three things but you have to admit, the technology behind Natal is pretty impressive. Even if it does bomb as a gaming device it will be applied to something else. This is Microsoft after all and they can always build it into the latest OS with computers specially made to use them.

    you know, i watched the microsoft press live, and i wish i would have just gone to sleep, did they ever blow balls.

    here are what, 4 shooting games and fable which is no longer an rpg (peter said that himself in an interview) i honestly couldn't give a shit about any of the games besides rising, and than, go out casual the last 3 years of Nintendo conferences... wow.

    i actually said this right after it. i wonder whose press con will be more casual Microsoft nor Nintendo. and i was banking on sony for the awesome this year.

    than nintendo, it had a strong start, and the whole fucking time i was wondering, when the casual circlejerk was coming. and it never came, sure they took a few minutes here and there for casual games, but nothing i couldnt handle.

    and than sony, see the only way sony was going to win was to game after game that i liked, but they had fucking skits, and allot... they were funny, but i dont give a fuck about funny, i want awesome. that said, the valve thing was hilarious, "the vp of sharpening things"

    realy the only way sony was kicking nintendos ass is to show off a refined sword fighting game.

    but wht the fuck sony?

    i have watched videos, i have seen games require 2 ball controllers, and the ball controller only comes with 1? and the stick controller is separate? i didn't even know there were 2 kinds, i just thought that some games didn't require a ball so they took it off for them.

    and the fact its 50-60$ for 1 controller, and probably 80 for 2 balls and a stick, pisses me off to, with not games bundles, (or i missed something)

    microsoft 2 out of 10 (2 for the riseing awesomeness)
    sony 7 out of 10 (less skits, more games next year)
    nintendo 9 out of 10 (only because i cant see the 3d effects over the internet)

    Gears 3 and Halo Reach certainly are not pea-shooter shooter games. They're some of the biggest games of the industry and they look fun. I do think they wasted too much time pretty-ing up Kinect, but the core games are there. Also, it's not like 360 is devoid of games. A lot of awesome stuff on the 3rd party side for both 360 and PS3.

    This article is flawed.. PSN users won't have to pay for access.. people are stupid if they think that, everything thats free right now will remain free.. PSN plus will be a subscription on top of that which will give exclusive demos, betas, free games, and much more.. The only reason people are going crazy over the 3ds is because they haven't actually seen it up close and how glitchy it can be.. The "3d" has a very small sweet spot in which it works.. I guarantee once most of you get your hands on it you'll think differently

    Nintendo stole it. You would not have known it from there botched display of their new Zelda, but they eventually came out guns blazing with titles such as:

    1. Goldeneye

    2. Donkey Kong Country

    3. Kirby

    4. Mario Sports Mix

    The 3DS sealed it with a display Kid Icarus that put Sony's PSP display to shame.
