I vote Nintendo because there overall show was better presented than the other two, and they had more games I cared about.  
Sticky this?

I liked the orchestra and the games were interesting to me. I fell asleep during Sony's and Microsoft made me hate everything Kinect.
You forgot to include Ubisoft and EA.

Even though no one still knows what the hell happened, Nintendo managed to have the most entertaining conference...

#5 Posted by PerryVandell (2190 posts) -

I'd say Nintendo. With all the announcements and introduction of a brand new console, they were the ones that impressed me the most.

obviously nintendo.

Everything about Nintendo made me happy except for the stupid Wii U name.

#9 Posted by HandsomeDead (11854 posts) -

Sony, by far. And even then, no one had anything on EA.

#10 Posted by Wrighteous86 (3876 posts) -

Nintendo by default.

#11 Posted by Sayishere (1852 posts) -

Putting aside the WII U Annoucment, i just thought Nintendos conference was better layed out, lack of cheesy jokes, just straight to the point

A highlight for me as a Zelda fan was the Orchestra at the start.

#12 Posted by Brendan (8663 posts) -

Nintendo was the most entertaining, but I agree with HandsomeDead that EA's killed all others. Just fantastic game after fantastic game.

#13 Posted by Creamypies (4159 posts) -

Nintendo, without question. It's hard to top a new home console reveal, especially one as impressive looking as the Wii U.

#14 Posted by Aegon (6615 posts) -

Strange that there were literally zero new games announced for the Wii. 

#15 Posted by Kjellm87 (1735 posts) -

Nintendo, the stuff they do gets my attention.

#16 Posted by FilipHolm (688 posts) -

Correction: Konami's "Pre-E3 Conference" was by far the most entertaining to me, especially at 3am in the morning...

Who the fuck are you people not voting Nintendo?

#18 Posted by SSully (4622 posts) -

I would say the Nintendo because of the WiiU, but they literally showed nothing about it. Also the stuff they announced, like EA games coming to the new console including stuff like Darksiders 2, really wasn't that exciting because it is just playing catch up with Microsoft and Sony. I was more happy with Sonys conference because they showed new gameplay of new games that looked great, while still showing us new stuff. Also they gave much needed details on the PS Vita.

#19 Posted by Redbullet685 (6184 posts) -

Sony.  Microsoft was all about Kinect, and Nintendo was confusing and the new console didn't seem that awesome.

No I did not, I did not miss them outif I ever intended to put them in it, its my poll...

you just hate the french don't deny it

Microsoft was the most relevant to me, but Nintendos' conference made want to go get a 3DS right now.

#22 Posted by GunslingerPanda (5029 posts) -

Ubisoft, tbh. They had more games I cared about.

#24 Posted by FateOfNever (1863 posts) -

Totally Nintendo.  The conference itself was competent and at the end of the day, it's going to be the Wii U that everyone is talking about, I think the Vita just got drastically over shadowed by the Wii U.

#25 Posted by Surkov (1017 posts) -

Sony, the Vita's price sold me. Also Uncharted 3 looks amazing. 

#26 Posted by Metal_Mills (3384 posts) -

People are saying Nintendo? We got a cluster fuck of a new console announcement that just made more questions, long drawn out bits of nothing and a weak game line up.
Sony wins easily and I don't even own a PS3.

#28 Posted by TehFedro (473 posts) -

I'm going with Nintendo's conference, it just interested me the most and of course, LUIGI'S MANSION 2! Microsoft's was boring and mostly about kinect, and I don't even have an xbox. Sony's was alright but there were only a few things that interested me. Although the new Nintendo console confusion and the name is something that is bothering me. But still, I changed my side thingy just because of Luigi's Mansion 2.

#29 Edited by TwoOneFive (9787 posts) -

Vita was cool  
but that new PS3 3DTV was awesome! 
co-op without being split screen is fucking GENIUS.  
and its a great price you get the tv, an hdmi chord, and Resistance 3 for $499. not bad.  
and overall I'd say nintendo did the most wtf shit so it wins but I think Sony had a  great show. MS was just a bunch of lame kinect stuff that was almost entirely scripted. the MW3 intro was excellent but its a multiplat. and uh... yeah not much excitement at MS dude.

From the 3 in the poll Nintendo. 
From EA and Ubisoft 
Can't decide. :<

#31 Posted by Claude (16614 posts) -

Nintendo for me. I like the idea of a tablet controller. It was a very confusing conference though. I saw an interview with Reggie on G4 and he explained why they didn't concentrate on the console. He basically said Nintendo wanted to put the new controller out there and that the console isn't being released until next year.

#32 Posted by Icemael (6795 posts) -

EA's was the best software-wise. 
Nintendo's was the best overall. They had more cool exclusives than Microsoft and Sony, and the WiiU seems incredible. Also, they had a goddamn orchestra playing Zelda music.

People who don't care about Nintendo like me.

#34 Posted by Sooty (8195 posts) -

Hated them all, all very lifeless. Why can't they get someone with a personality up on that stage? The suits sound so scripted, give me a real person thinking up things to say without having rehearsed every aspect of it.

#35 Posted by spankingaddict (2813 posts) -

It's pretty close between Sony and Nintendo. Sony delivered the software. Nintendo delivered the hardware. Microsoft was just terrible!

#37 Posted by gike987 (1811 posts) -

Sony by far. MS only showed lame Kinect games and multi platform games. Nintendo only talked about the controller and showed a couple of trailers for games for multiplatform games coming to their new console.

#38 Posted by Yanngc33 (4551 posts) -

EA because it was (almost) all about the games

Or he/she is currently holding a podcast with two microsoft employees.
Kinda covered that with "liar", I think :P
#41 Posted by buft (3409 posts) -

Microsoft was a kinect Snooze-fest and child actors? com'on! 
Sony had a good run of it with the Vita  
Nintendo had the most entertaining conference by far, live orchestra and it didnt feel as rushed.

#42 Posted by Hizang (9360 posts) -

Reggie walking out on he stage was pretty dope.

#43 Edited by onarum (2518 posts) -

Yeah imo this year was Nintendo >>>> Sony >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> MS

#44 Posted by FreakAche (3023 posts) -

Sony. Nintendo could have been best, but I feel like they didn't do a good enough job explaining the WiiU.

#45 Posted by VicRattlehead (1416 posts) -

nintendo, sony and ea are all tied for me, all had games and consoles i was interested in buying and am excited about seeing more of.... microsofts was just lame

#46 Posted by Cloudenvy (5874 posts) -

Sony, no question.

#47 Posted by RockinKemosabe (644 posts) -

Ubisoft for the obvious reasons of unintentional comedy and complete anger and annoyance.

#48 Posted by rawrsair (836 posts) -

Sony, by far.

Sony.  They had the best games, PS Vita price was great, great games on both systems, great announcements.  Talked about move which was good. 
Microsoft.  Had good games, Kinect stuff.  Star Wars sucked ass.  Halo announcements.  It was ok 
Nintendo.  Showed off good stuff for the 3DS, Wii U actually looks really cool but wondering about the cost of the controller. 
Winner?  Sony.  The Wii U was cool but there were so many questions to be answered and no real games for it yet.  Res on controller and the system?  Cost of the controller.  Blu Ray?  Online stuff?  Hard Drive?  They need to tell us more to be impressed.  The controller is cool but we have an idea of what can be done since the DS.  Give us the details that will convince us it is worth it to get into it.   Sony gave the right price for the Vita.  MS was good just nothing really compelling.  They have the games and thats all we could ask for.  It doesn't give them the best press conference, but will give them the best year. 
Nintendo will not have the WiiU out yet and 3DS games are still not there, Sony has good games but no word on release for the Vita and they may launch in the US in 2012.  So all they have this year is Uncharted... for me anyway.  Also, it is clear they are making the same mistake with Vita, the idea of switching between Vita and PS3 is awesome, but to expect us to pay for both?  Dumb.  Yeah, MS walks away with the best outlook for 2011, and thats what matters right now.
