    Ha Ha 44th what now
  • solsunforge - June 3, 2009 8:55 p.m.

    a better gaming platform?
  • NotBraze - June 3, 2009 6:06 a.m.

    So here's what I've gathered from E3 so far… MICROSOFT: "Hey look at us, we can do all sorts of cool stuff with our Xbox because Apple's not here to beat us to it! Nevermind that Natal may be a predecessor to Skynet, look at how much cooler we are than everyone else." NINTENDO: Hey all, so we're going to spend an hour and a half talking about crap games that everyone will buy because most people don't know any better and how you have to buy twenty different peripherals to play our console the way we said you could in the first place. But wait! before you leave angry and more than a little depressed have some Mario, Metroid, and Golden sun candy to cover up the bad taste. SONY: We're the Microsoft of the video game world. We'll spend all day telling you how we're better with our stats and figures than we'll show you some stuff that we ripped off from Microsoft and didn't do as well. But of course we're Sony so we'll sell our second-hand ideas for twice the price, and you'll all buy it because, once again, we're Sony.

    @solsunforge dont u mean RAIDEN reCAPTCHA: stockings winsor, wtf? i have no idea
  • CoD_22 - June 2, 2009 3:56 p.m.

    wheres all the info on what sony did? in the uk i think it was gunna be 11am so now it being 5pm wheres all the news?
  • MGS4SolidSnake - June 2, 2009 3:14 p.m.

    GoldenMe - 16 hours 18 minutes ago MGS4SolidSnake- Your attitude screams "FANBOY" in my face ohhh no im a fanboy yea i am but just of one series and i do have an xbox and would rather play it on my ps3..
  • MechGyver - June 2, 2009 10:53 a.m.

    Metal Gear solid rising for xbox360, ps3 and !pc?, guess its was worth bitching about microsoft on its lack of suporte to the pc, on the forum, maybe some one has paid some atencion to the gamers pleas.
  • pikachu2000 - June 2, 2009 8:37 a.m.

    Unless the games came from Sony or Microsoft, every 3rd party game is in danger of going miltiplantform. Greedy people want as much money as possible and said "To hell with tradition!" Sadly, this is something that we all have to get used to.
  • 100tommo100 - June 2, 2009 6:42 a.m.

    lol what is E3i
  • LadyLibertine - June 2, 2009 6:33 a.m.

    Yay for being able to play MGS on the 360 now. And I'm kinda interested in the integration...
  • mikejr13 - June 2, 2009 1:36 a.m.

    can't wait to hear you're guys' opinions on ubisoft's epic fail.
  • NipplesTheSuperHippo - June 2, 2009 12:18 a.m.

    So as someone who is trying to get into the gameing industry, either as a journalist or analyst, I am looking at ValvE's L4D 2 move. I can see how it makes smart business sense, being that L4D was and is still one of the most popular games I have seen in two or three years. But then again, L4D is was a still is one of the most popular games I have seen in two or three years. I still sink almost 40 hours into L4D each week and don't feel at all that I need a new game. A good set of DLC every now and then would be nice, but from what I saw in the trailer, L4D 2 doesn't look that much better than L4D. If Valve could have taken maybe another three to four months to give it some hyper-realistic graphics Modernwarfare 2 sytle, then maybe I might be more inclined to buy this. I commend Valve for taking a risk, but it really seems like the EA bully came in and said "We want another new game released less than a year after the fist or I am going to take your lunch money." It saddens me because PC gaming is Valve, Blizzard, and IMO Bioware. I just believe Valve made the wrong move here.
  • GoldenMe - June 1, 2009 10:53 p.m.

    MGS4SolidSnake- Your attitude screams "FANBOY" in my face.
  • Mattgue - June 1, 2009 10:09 p.m.

    I hope there will be lots good games!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  • Corsair89 - June 1, 2009 9:57 p.m.

    I am seroiusly skeptical about Project Naval. Modern Warfare 2 looks amazing. E3 isn't terrible, but Nintendo starts tomorrow...
  • GrantG - June 1, 2009 9:45 p.m.

    Can't wait to see what's coming!
  • MGS4SolidSnake - June 1, 2009 8:50 p.m.

    i give up hope kojima sold out i dont fucking care about god of rather play mgs on my ps3 that works fine and looks good then on my xbox which will probably break after 2 mins
  • Tasty_Pasta - June 1, 2009 8:09 p.m.

    I really liked watching a live stream of the conference, and seeing your guy's responses. I wish we could chat in there too with you guys a little, because the comments section of the page gets too cumbersome. Something to think about for the future...
  • animeman - June 1, 2009 7:43 p.m.

    I cant wait for all of the great PS3 games to be anounced!
  • smallberry - June 1, 2009 7:40 p.m.

    Damn its 1:30 am Indian time. Don't think I can do this everyday. I'll probably catch up once its all over.
