…but I’ll have to. Now that it’s over and I’ve had a good amount of time to digest all the information, I thought I’d write some stuff up about it. It was a hell of a lot better than last years underwhelming, down-sized event and was a return to the E3 of old. Rather than boring summaries of each conference, I’ll just talk about the games that I’m most interested in. Click below for the good stuff.

SonySome of the stuff they showed:

  • New Resistance 2 footage that was rather impressive
  • Ratched & Clank PSN game
  • More Killzone 2 footage (actual gameplay this time!)
  • A Little Big Planet level showing Sony’s sales figures
  • inFAMOUS trailer
  • God of War III teaser

Is it just me or have Sony been showing the same stuff at E3 for the past 2-3 years?

E3 – Nintendo Conference of FAIL July 15, 2008

Posted by Matthew in E3, News, Wii.

NintendoWhat did they show?

  • Wii MotionPlus peripheral which allows 1:1 motion control
  • Animal Crossing: City Folk
  • Wii Speak – basically a microphone that sits on top of your TV to allow online voice chat
  • Wii Sports Resort – themed around beach sports and uses the aformentioned MotionPlus

And thats pretty much all that is worth talking about. Nothing at all for the hardcore gamer – StarFox, Kid Icarus? Probably one of the worst E3 conferences I’ve ever seen from one of the big 3. Pretty pathetic really.
