Ubisoft stole the show with Sony not far behind and Nintendo wasn't too shabby either, EA and Microsoft however left much to be desired.

#5 Posted by CrossTheAtlantic (1146 posts) -

Easily Ubisoft. Had a perfect mixture of terrible and great. Everyone else has been kind of "zzz" to be honest.

Without a doubt Ubi, watchdogs and shootmania look amazing. Plus rayman legends looks like more good platforming, even though they only showed wii u footage that looked way easier than rayman origins.

Ubisoft, no contest. Even with awkward hosts and all.

#9 Posted by translucentfish (130 posts) -

I voted for Sony. Mainly because I think it's hilarious that they love the visage of Ellen Page so much.

Ubisoft won E3.

#11 Posted by Redbullet685 (6107 posts) -

Ubisoft followed by Sony. The rest were really bad.

#12 Posted by Cirdain (3200 posts) -

Ubisoft, totally.

#13 Posted by Soapy86 (2625 posts) -

Ubisoft was great.

Sony and EA were mediocre.

Nintendo and Microsoft were shit.

#14 Posted by Brendan (8282 posts) -

I didn't see Ubisoft's event, so it has to be Sony for me.

#15 Posted by Jace (1097 posts) -

Ubisoft was the best, no contest.

#16 Posted by Bucketdeth (8048 posts) -

I missed the Ubisoft event but Sony was alright, The Last of Us really blew me away.

#17 Posted by FritzDude (2273 posts) -

I think the 'big three' disappointed a little, but Ubisoft did a pretty good job. So Ubisoft.

I didn't watch the Ubisoft one,so I just voted for Sony.

ubisoft but tobuscus annoyed me to no end

#20 Posted by Sooty (8082 posts) -

They were all pretty bad, I can't say Ubisoft was good when Aisha was up there being a complete twat.

#21 Posted by altairre (1296 posts) -

Ubisoft because even when it was terrible it was at least entertaining. Sony had the better demos (last of us, Beyond) but Ubisoft is a close second there (AC3, Watch Dogs).

#22 Posted by TinoXtreme (300 posts) -

Ubisoft best conference of show. Nintendo actually made me fall asleep.

#23 Posted by Mikey2D (220 posts) -

I went with Sony. Sure Ubisoft had some good stuff (I was most impressed with Watch Dogs) - but the hosts alone made me unable to give them the number 1 spot.

The only thing that disappointed me with Sony was that the Vita was largely neglected. I was hoping E3 would bring some hot new vita title announcments.

#24 Posted by Bulby33 (620 posts) -

Watch Dogs, Assassin's Creed III, Rayman: Legends, Far Cry 3. 

Ubisoft, easily.

#25 Posted by DarthOrange (3921 posts) -

Sony barely beat out ubisoft for me but ubisoft was in everyone elses conference and was the best part of Nintendo. That Sony ending was great though, as was the intro. The only real bad part was the book stuff.

#26 Posted by TheSmashing (313 posts) -

Ubi got the win.

#27 Posted by Masha2932 (1242 posts) -

For me the order was:

Ubisoft- They amazed at their own conference and during other conferences as well. The AC3 demo during the Sony conference was brilliant, Zombie U during Nintendo and Splinter Cell during Microsoft's.Watch Dogs, Far cry 3 and AC3 looked great as well.

Nintendo- LEGO City undercover did it for me.

EA- Decent showing, no surprises really.

Sony- Barely any vita games, What are you doing Sony? Beyond and Last of Us looked great.

Microsoft-LocoCycle and Splinter Cell were a few of the redeeming games during this underwhelming conference.

Ubisoft had the worst presenters by far, but the best game content, so they kinda win by default in my eyes.

Sony's wasn't half bad. Microsoft and Nintendo were equally bad, sadly...

#30 Posted by Guided_By_Tigers (8061 posts) -

Would I be trolling if I said Microsoft?

#31 Posted by Dixavd (1400 posts) -

Ubisoft/Nintendo - but I went with Nintendo because I am much more interested in Pikmin3 than I am of WatchDogs. I would put Sony third and Microsoft and EA as joint last.

#32 Posted by Dalai (7092 posts) -

Ubisoft brought the games, but the hosts were annoying. Reggie did a good job being Reggie, but Nintendo didn't show me enough games I want. 
I'm going with Ubisoft.

#33 Edited by KaneRobot (1932 posts) -

The big 3 were fucking awful. Funny how everyone (including me) thought Sony and Nintendo would clean up after watching MS, then Sony did nothing and Nintendo cured insomnia.

Ubisoft easily takes it.

Halo 4 and Watch Dogs are the only things that interested me so far.

#34 Posted by BaneFireLord (2967 posts) -

Ubisoft showed three games that I need to buy the day they are released. No one else came close.

#35 Posted by EXTomar (4991 posts) -

Definitely Ubisoft then Sony then...there were others?

#36 Posted by Gruff182 (888 posts) -

Ubi was the best. Nintendo was by far the worst, considering their the only ones with new hardware.

Valve could just hold up a hl3 logo in the lobby or even a toilet and undermine anything thats been shown anywhere so far. Infact, if Gabe could have kept his beard secret until now, that would have 'won' E3.

Sony, they seem to be the only company that managed to come across both professional and respectful and still showed a lot of games in a short space of time, also they had no forced jokes.

Also, this might be the worst E3 I've ever watched.

#39 Posted by Castiel (2789 posts) -

Sony, hands down.

#40 Posted by Sup (66 posts) -

Ubisoft, because I love good surprises and they had the biggest with Watch_Dogs if you ask me.

#41 Posted by KaneRobot (1932 posts) -


(I don't buy EA games anymore and this did nothing to sway me)

Ubisoft: B+

(Watch Dogs, motherfucker. They also had the best actual presentation. The dislike between the two hosts was oddly compelling)

Konami: Missed it

Microsoft: D+

(Halo was cool and some of the other games looked ok, but it draaaaaaaaagggeeeddd forever and wasn't nearly focused enough on games)

Sony: C-

(A couple of cool trailers. Still not the least bit interested in owning a PS3)

Nintendo: D-

(Actively drove me towards not purchasing a Wii U)

In that sense it was the worst, but in the sense of what they actually showed, it was hands down the best. Also, even if Aisha is obviously a highly paid endorser, she at least had more conviction than anyone from Microsoft, EA, or Konami. Maybe if she had said girl wood one more time, I'd have to agree with you.

It's a tie with Ubisoft and Sony. E3 really just wasn't that great this year. As a completely neutral person/ non-fanboy of any game company, I really like Nintendo but I just wish they had more at their conference or at least something big..

#44 Posted by anarchcorp (83 posts) -

Sony, but I didn't see the Ubisoft one.

#45 Posted by Cloudenvy (5891 posts) -

Ubisoft with Sony as a close second.

Ubisoft is really strong with these 4.

Sony. Professional, offered new quality services for their console, new bundles, announced a new game and had major gameplay for their big prestige game this fall. Treated the audience like valued consumers instead of like they were handing out pamphlets for live nude girls.

Microsoft sold to you the way the television does, Sony sold to you the way the manager of the company does.

#49 Posted by Demoskinos (15284 posts) -

Ubisoft. It was glorious to behold.

#50 Posted by Giantstalker (1767 posts) -

EA. Sticking to stuff that works appeals to me; I really liked the new showing of Medal of Honor: Warfighter, and their presentation actually made me buy Battlefield Premium. Go figure.
