The Uncharted game looks good, but I don't think I'll be buying the Vita.

Damn they have a lot of weird/out of shape people presenting Sony games this year.

Also Joystiq claims $250 for PSVITA.

Vita priced at $249 USD

Have fun paying the more eurobros.

Nintendo needs to pricecut the 3DS now, there is no way the hardware between the 2 is the same price.

Well I think Nintendo pretty much has this in the bag. Microsoft and Sony were pretty on par with being mediocre. There were a couple core games but none of the newly announced ones really seemed like AAA hitters.

It just cut off. It said "Thanks for watching." I guess they were on a time limit.

Well it wasn't as bad as Microsoft. For now, yeah, sleep.

Best so far, but not great. Vita itself looks amazing, as do the games for it, but there was fuck all in the way new PS3 stuff.

Nintendo could go either way. Here's hoping they're amazing.

Man, this E3 has not been coming off strong.
However tomorrow their redemption begins, as Nintendo will release Project Cafe and if the rumors are true, they a glorified wet dump all over Microsoft and Sony.

Sony's conference wasn't bad perse. Though not to my taste, those Uncharted games look good, and there was plenty of stuff. Plus, the Vita was $100 cheaper than I expected, though I suspect that this will mean that it's not much more powerful than the 3DS. However, if Nintendo isn't able to top this tomorrow, I'm considering this E3 something of a failure.

I agree Nintendo probably has it in the bag, just because a new console announcement is always going to garner more attention than additional software/hardware or new partnerships, but I wouldn't say MS and Sony were on par. I think Microsoft was a total flop, just as bad as the Riiiiiiidge Raaaacer Sony conference years ago. Maybe not as embarrassing, but it was just flat out boring and didn't really bring anything substantial to the table. All it seemed to do was seal the fact that this generation of consoles is on the downward slop and it's getting closer to bringing out new hardware. I think Kinect is going to be a total failure in the long run. It had good sales, so in that aspect it has already succeeded, but I just don't think it's going to hold people's attention for years, and with the money MS is investing in it and the push they are giving developers to support it, they must really have faith it's going to be around for the long haul.

To me, that's just damaging the 360's reputation has a core platform. Developers are spending more time and resources on Kinect games or Kinect features in games, which is hurting people like me, like us, who aren't really interested in that technology. At least with Sony and 3D tech and Move it's unnecessary extras that aren't really impacting core players. You you play all of these games without 3D, it doesn't really make a difference. The Move, while it's getting it's own Move enabled games and other games that utilize it, still seems like a side gimmick that you can just ignore. It's fucking impossible to ignore Kinect. It's all over my dashboard, it's all over both core and casual games, it's all developers are talking about when they discuss games on the 360, and it's a much bigger investment than 3D technology or Move.

Maybe I'm looking at this from a core gamers perspective, and not a business perspective, but I just feel like it does not have lasting appeal. I think Nintendo beat them to the punch long ago, and they came late to the party, bringing dated hardware that Nintendo has already perfected, and now tomorrow Nintendo has the possibility of announcing more innovative hardware that's going to just shit on motion gaming. What does Kinect do at that point? If Kinect is Microsoft's last stand for the Xbox 360, it's a weak one, and will probably be the nail in the coffin until new hardware is announced. Even third party games aren't the force they once were on the 360, look at all the exclusive deals Sony is making with developers/publishers for games like Saints Row and Bioshock Infinite, while MS focuses on Kinect.

With that said, as a "core" gamer, I'm also getting pretty burned out on these rehashed games. As repetitive as it might be, the FPS genre is so over saturated, I'm rarely excited for any new FPS. The only FPS I'm truly looking forward to is Battlefield 3, because I enjoy a good, competitive FPS game, and that's really the only option besides Modern Warfare 3, which looks painfully bland and unimaginative. Rage, Gears of War, Ghost Recon (not really FPS, but close enough,) Resistance, Call of Duty, FarCry, The Darkness, and even Bioshock Infinite, I'm not really excited for. Hell, I'm more hyped for the new Rayman and Sly Cooper game. I think this is why for a while I've just been more interested in news of Indie games than big blockbusters. At least Indie games still have the unique opportunity to take chances and be creative, and it's more fun to pay $10 and get a fresh (or at least fresher) experience than it is to pay $60 and trudge through another brown and gray atmosphere shooting at some terrorist I couldn't give a fuck about.

PLEASE SAVE CONSOLE VIDEO GAMES NINTENDO


I've been refurbished and reissued, prepackaged and precooked, decontaminated and deloused, but I still smell, sound, look and feel like shit.

seriously? 3ds has about the same power as the current psp. Graphical comparisons prove most games are on par or worse then a psp.

Current owner of a 3ds myself and a psp, I can truely say they are the same graphically. 3ds just has a 1 up for being 3d which is awesome.

THAT SAID

3ds has the power of a gamecube, but even that power is split into rendering 3 screens, the touch screen and the "2" other screens to get the 3d effect. So its really watered down power wise. Not saying it still doesn't look good, but it's not in the same league as what I just saw with Vita.

Vita looks gorgeous. Modnation racers clearly proves that in comparision to it's psp version. Also seriously uncharted, on vita. Nuff said.

Not to mention we wont really see the potential of either system until further down the road. Look at uncharteds progression graphically? Even resistance 3 looks a lot less like a pile of turd.

Price point is more then amazing.

Both Sony's and Microsoft's press conferences were a snore fest. I've never been more unexcited about the new games. I think the only games that amazed me were the new Ghost Recon game, Sly 4, and Skyrim. Other than that, meh. I thought the Ghost Recon one was cool. While I'm not a fan of Kinect, that gun-building demo they showed was awesome. Looking forward to Nintendo's conference tomorrow; hopefully they'll have a much more interesting show with their new console.

I'm also shocked at the price point for Vita. $250? Right on the mark for a powerful handheld. Felt it was going to be $300 at the least. That surprised me. Still waiting on info about battery life.
