As far as keeping my attention I think EA actually had the best show.  They showed off good looking games, kept it moving, and had good speakers.  That's what presentation is all about.  

As far as announcements go though Nintendo wins for me.  I got my official announcement on Wii Fit Plus.  I got full details on the list of games on Wii Sports Resort.  And I got to see Golden Sun DS, New Super Mario Wii, Super Mario Galaxy 2, and Metroid: Other M (which was the single biggest announcement of the show thus far in my book and now one of my most anticipated games).

Sony's conference was definitely the best. And if I want to talk about consistency, MS comes next. Nintendo... they only have SMG2, Golden Sun DS, and Metroid, which are all first party, in addition to Mario and Metroid being staples.

I wish E3 had more PC news.

 If Sony had cut the boring crap it would have been the best. I felt like I was watching a movie that never ends. If Nintendo has highlighted its 3rd party games better it would have been the best. Thankfully it was short so bearing Womens Murder club wasn't that bad. 

That leaves me with MS, a conference which didn't bore the living shit out of me. MS wins.

I liked the conference, it did go on for too long. We got an annoucement of a new exclusive Final Fantasy game (I know its an online one, someone out there cares), a new Resident Evil for PSP, some new LBP like Racing game, a new Rockstar excluisve, and the new PSP Metal Gear game. We got new or first trailers of FFXIV, MGS PW, FFXIII, GT5, Last Guardian. We had first time gameplay demonstrations of Uncharted 2 which was as good as anything shown up till this point at E3, Assassin's Creed 2, that racing game, MAG (Meh), and GoW3. And that wand thing to me seems to have more practical game applications right NOW, than what MS showed yesterday. Another good conference IMO.

I was so pissed at the PSP though, a lot of good games I cant get. Resident Evil had me cursing like a mad man.  The racing game looked ok, not my thing but more LBP style games is not bad.  FFXIV will come out before FFXIII, lol, big annoucement. Last Guardian, sweet!  Uncharted 2 was the best gameplay demo of the show so far. Go3 right behind it. Ass Creed 2 was not ass at all, it was tits, fabulous tits.

This E3>>>>>>>>> than last years.

This site cant handle E3, I was tired of Soccer dude. Nyaa

There is a whole battle about motion controls at the GGD. So many think its still a fad, it will still bring ruin to the whole industry and will all be gone soon.

I'm going crazy.

Motion wont be gone soon, but you're going to get people inappropiately using it, just like in wii's infancy.

Yep I tell them this, they want to use a controller till their 70. Meanwhile I will be in a virtual world having a fully interactive experience maybe with my mind by then.

 Use this line on them. 

If you want to play games when you're 70, well then EA Sports active and Wii Fit will put you on the road to long term health and stability. LOL

OMG! SMG 2 looks amazing.  It looks like it could top the original.  I think Nintendo won just because of this trailer, but they also showed a Team Ninja Metroid so there is no doubt.  What a surprise that was.

Young Samus rocks.  She has Ryu's moves and the typical Metroid exploration?  Who thought of this?

I liked Microsoft's conference the best. More games that interested me the most and Natal/Milo was very cool.

I liked Sony's second best. Some great games like Uncharted 2, God of War 3, MAG, and the wand seems interesting.

Nintendo's was third for me. Not that it was bad though. NSMB for Wii is very cool, SMG2 is awesome, Team Ninja Metroid game was wicked cool news, and I'm really looking forward to Wii Motion Plus.

A great E3 so far for sure.
