My thoughts on E3 Day 00 (Microsoft and Sony)

Well that was a weird beginning for E3. It started at Microsoft and well it was an ok conference. I would say the best parts were MW3, Tomb Raider, Gears of War 3, Forza 4 and Halo 4 (I thought it would have been better if it didn't leak). I though the Future Soldier demo of customizing your gun with Kinect was cool and using Mass Effect 3 to move your AI is good. Kinect Star Wars and Disney Kinect seems like cash in titles. Dance Central 2 and Kinect Sports 2 was already given based on success and Ryse really does not interest me. Microsoft should of played up XBLA because those games they put out are great and they should of mentioned cloud saving. 
 
Sony started strong with Uncharted 3. That game is going to be GOTY contender. Did not like the Resistance 3 demo and why is NBA2k12 being demoed. A new Sly Cooper being announced was a little shock but they did tease it with Sly Cooper Collections. Dust and Star Trek game is not really a big deal.  Bioshock Infinite will always be better with a controller instead of motion controls and the bigger news is a Bioshock game coming to Vita. More exclusive content coming to PS3 via EA is not suprising.  PS Vita games look good and honestly the highlight of Sony's show would be the price of Vita. 
 
It I were to give it a grade Microsoft would be a C+ to a B-. Sony would get a solid B. Both had good points to their conferences and Sony wins based on new hardware.
 
However I think Nintendo will win in the end with a new home console.
