    Nintendo Bullet Points



    Sony Bullet Points


    • PSP Go! is Sony's new handheld. It will cost $249.99 and be wifi enabled with a 16 GB flash drive. You'll be able to direct download games, movies and TV shows onto the device. It is 40% lighter then the original PSP unit.
    • Gran Turismo PSP will be a launch title for the PSP Go!
    • Big releases for the PSP Go! include Resident Evil and Metal Gear: Peace Walker. Peace Walker is a true sequel in the Metal Gear franchise and will be set in the 1970s.
    • Sony is working on a motion control device that while still in the early stages, looked like it might be stiff competition for Natal.
    • God of War III was presented through a gameplay demo that looked pretty epic. Certainly the bloodiest game yet.
    • The Last Guardian is a new PS3 game from the maker's of Ico. It includes a Bird/Dog/Rat creature. Hard to explain :)
    • Final Fantasy XIV was announced and will feature some online components. It, unlike XIII, will be a Sony exclusive title.
    • Assassin's Creed 2 was shown with gameplay. Involved some high flying action in DaVinci's flying machine.
    • Rockstar North is working on an exclusive title for the PS3 named Agent. Not much is know.
    • You'll be able to download Final Fantasy VII on PSN.
    • ModNation Races is a PS3 kart game that allows you to build virtual tracks and share with friends. Think LittleBigPlanet for racing.
    • Sony will still continue to support current PSPs.
    • An Uncharted 2 trailer was shown. It included a pretty impressive fight with a helicopter.
    • MAG was demoed for the second E3 in a row. This time live with a 250 person game being played. It is due "This Fall"

    I think C.O.P. is a DS game.

    Good attempt to save face with Mario and Metroid.

    I'm still convinced the vitality sensor wasn't completely serious.

    I don't know, a few interesting RPGs comming out this year, I always like a funny and quirkey Mario game like this new Bowser thing. They should of shown some Zelda though to get some excitement in there.

    I said it before, that vitality thing looks like a pulse oximeter. I guess it'll be used like one of those sports watches that supposedly monitors your pulse.

    There's a new Final Fantasy game called Crystal Bearers coming out for the Wii.

    I wouldn't say that its new since that game was announced for the Wii before it was ever released.  Galaxy 2 announcement was great though and the new Metroid Game looks interesting.

    Ohhhh Nintendo.  I'm glad your making money hand over fist but your still not delivering.  I'll be honest.  Mario is getting stale.  I'm just not that excited for a new Mario game or two.  Galaxies was awesome but to keep stretching out your titles is boring me.  Galaxies 2 should have been out this year at least.  Ohhhh I hope Sony can do better.....

    Anyone else think that Nintendo is blowing their Mario wad? I am looking forward to Mario Galaxy 2, but maybe some pacing would do some good. Instead of loads of Mario games at once, maybe one Mario game and one other Nintendo IP.

    Oh, and Wii Vitality Sensor?! Really? R-R-Really?!

    Yeah, I kinda wish that they had done something a bit different with the new 3D Mario. New Super Mario Bros looks cool. Mario vs Donkey Kong will be good and what's up with the new Metroid? Crazy. Gotta go! Sony press conference is starting!

    I just really wanted a new Zelda game being announced, Golden Sun, Mario Galaxy 2 and Metroid: Other M look great, but really, if they busted out a new Zelda at the end that was refreshing, my eyes would bleed and I would enjoy every second of it.

    Not impressed. 5 games in the Mario universe ? Common Nin, really ? Every original IP sucked big time. I wonder how long can they milk this Red-Blue cow. But than again their target ( 12 year olds ) does not mind. Sticking to my PSP for the future.

    Great games were shown, but I think how they showed them was shockingly bad yet again.

    Nintendo seem totally oblivious to what kind of people are watching E3.

    Just quickly skimmed through the Nintendo press conference and it was pretty alright. Super Mario Galaxy 2 definitely has me the most excited. Metroid: Other M (or whatever) looks pretty cool too. Though Nintendo didn't come anywhere near Microsoft and I doubt anyone will.

    Definitely a huge improvement over last year.

    it wasnt a terrible showing. i wasnt expecting a mario galaxy 2, which should be great. i thought that metroid was done for now, but they seem to ruin my love for the original primes by giving this one a terrible name and probably ruining the continuity of the series just to make more money. but they seem to have some interesting ideas, like crystal bearers which should interest me if it is turn based.

    I hate to say this, but even worse than last year. I dont know if I've outgrown what they offer, or if it is the offerings themselves that are bad, but Nintendo's games are, in general terms, clearly not for me anymore.

    No new Zelda?  That stinks... But two new quality Mario games is pretty cool.  New Metroid should be good.  It's a heck of a lot better than last years press conference... all we saw out of that was Wii Sports Resort.  I guess we'll just have to wait a little longer for Zelda Wii.

    A new Golden Sun might be fun. While I liked the first Mario Galaxy, I can't say I'm excited about another one.
