    It seems like SONY brought their A-game again. Once again saving a pretty mediocre E3 from being completely a waste. I’m kind of glad I stayed up for this. 😀 The order is starting to look like a must have title… 😀

          It was silly. Every second game they showed has the words ‘Timed exclusive’ in the bottom. Still, people like Pieter will still claim MS did a better job than SONY last night and the rest of us (Read: rest of the sentient human species) will disagree.

    So mostly remakes and Indies…..AGAIN! Very mediocre, but not too bad I guess. Although they’re haemorrhaging money, they’ll really need to invest in some exclusives/ exclusive AAA’s down the line, really had nothing to show in that department! MS trumped them in the end for sure!

        I have to agree with you – I REALLY was expecting MS to blow us away. Now I am not saying their conference was bad, not by a long shot, but it didn’t have those two or three mind-blowing games announced/shown. Everything I saw was expected…

        Still makes my life difficult as to whether I bite the bullet when One releases here in SA…

        I just was expecting more.

        As for Sony, I will leave my reaction until I have watched everything.

          I was genuinely shocked at how little of “new” MS had to show, considering all the hype leading into it. All I really got from it was some remake of a game I never heard of, bunch of indies, some interesting thing with dragons, and Crackdown 3 (yawn).

        With no new IP AAA titles they only had multiplats, Indies and HD remakes to show off and filled the rest of their timeslot with TV TV TV! If this was their “plan B”, “plan A” really had to have sucked! LOL! Sony was a little bit too confident going into E3 and that clearly showed with the bs they tried to pull off! ????

          There are new IPs like Bloodborn,Entwined and Abzu(from the guys who made Journey) Then the exclusives like Bro Force,The Last of US and Uncharted 4. Then there’s F2P games like Kingdom Under Fire 2 and Planetside 2 coming as well which are exclusive to PC and PS

          So the games are there and I just mentioned the exclusives mind. The reality you need to face is that the likely hood of XBOX exclusives like Titanfall and Dead Rising 3 has gone to PC and though I’m not a fan of Titanfall, DR3 will fit nicely on my PC.

          So I’m wondering more and more if I should buy a XBOX One.

          PS4 games not on Xbox One revealed at E3 2014: LittleBigPlanet 3, Entwined, Bloodborne, The Talos Principle, Let It Die, Rachet & Clank, Infamous sidestory, Kingdom Under Fire 2 and tons of indie games. No Man’s Land, Grim Fandango, and ABZU timed exclusive.

          You are clearly a malicious and hateful fanboy spreading lies.

          PS4 has the superior visuals on all console AAA multiplats, more dev support including indies, a large number of first party studios, free to play games and MMOs like FFXIV and War Thunder, and unannounced 1st party games. Titanfall 2 and future 3rd party games will almost certainly be on PS4.

          1st-2nd party studios include Media Molecule, Quantic Dream, Guerilla Games, Sony London, Bend, San Diego, SOE, Santa Monica, Polyphony Digital, Naughty Dog, Japan Studio, Ready at Dawn, Evolution Studios, etc.

          PS4 games not on Xbox One: Killzone, inFamous Second Son, Dynasty Warriors 8, Final Fantasy XIV, War Thunder, DC Universe, Yakuza Isshin and other Japanese games, MLB 14 The Show, Bound by Flame, Injustice Gods Among Us, Knack, Natural Doctrine, Transistor, Uncharted, Planetside 2, Dragon Ball Z, MotoGP, Deep Down, Driveclub, The Last of Us, The Witness, The Order, LittleBigPlanet 3, Bloodborne, Let It Die, Rachet & Clank, and a ton of indies including Resogun, Rime, Transistor, etc.

            Xbox Exclusives coming 2014 already:
            Halo Master Chief Edition
            Sunset Overdrive
            FORZA Horizon 2
            Ori and the blind forest
            Dance Central Spotlight
            Disney’s Fantasia: Music Evolved
            Project Spark
            Killer Instinct Season 2
            Fable Legends
            As I mentioned “NEW” AAA IP’s, Sony ONLY showed Bloodborne, That’s “ONE” or “1” new AAA IP for such a huge company, shame on them!
            Not even going to mention “Timed Exclusives” as that’s just wasting time….
            ID@Xbox have more than 250 indie dev’s working on games so expect a steady stream of Sony’s old “ace up the sleeve” games coming to Xbox too! ????

      Er, all I got from M$ was “timed exclusive” and the Evolve “exclusive beta” along with moar Halo, exactly what you just said about $ony.
      Dude. I actually went to bed after the EA conference because I was bored outta my skull and caught up this morning on the rest of the reveals. Bloodborne was the only title I have thus far enjoyed seeing and that was from $ony. As an old Xbox fan there was nothing compelling for me in the M$ lineup although I would prob give Halo 5 a bash and I REALLY want that controller.
      Only thing that interests me on X1 atm is Forza 5 and to a lesser degree Halo. UFC and Batman I can play on any console.
      A non-fanboy perspective.
