    Say happy birthday to your dad from me. Also that disney game looked great until they showed the actual gameplay.

    There have been some good announcements, and the show has been, eeeh...alright, but I don't care about any of this when compared to Nintendo's conference. I'm so anxious to see the new Project Cafe, because it could become my main system, now that the others seem so fond of stuff that sucked on Wii years ago. I don't want to be embarassed for owning a Nintendo system anymore. Please Nintendo, Please!!

    Best game so far is Third Strike online

    Was interested in PSVita until I heard that the UK will pay £50 more than the US, so I'll pass.

    HOOOOOTERS!? Where art thou little man? Anyway, another welcome update from you guys! Must say I'm disappointed with Microsoft but then I never cared much for their exclusives. Sony's show was reasonably good, Uncharted looked absolutely fantastic but it was never going to be anything else was it really! Massively looking forward to 5pm tonight for Nintendo's show! Is that 5pm in the UK or 5pm in the US does anyone know?

    Sound is fixed awesome =) Looking forward to tomorrow. Massive disappointment or massive enthusiasm? Nintendo is a city on a hill right now.

    cool audio is up. yah yah, i agree both sony and microsoft were doing fine until they started talking about their motion controls. my eyes glazed over. uncharted was the only thing that got me excited.

    I feel they are calling Halo 4 a new trilogy because it occurs 100s or thousands of years after the halo universe and maybe it's a whole new enemy and world and has little to do with humans. maybe just a sorta survival game. all speculation though
  • HitmanSB07 - June 7, 2011 2:05 p.m.

    I thought that Far Cry 3 was the biggest surprise so far.
  • Cat_Mundy - June 7, 2011 5:55 p.m.

    Such a great variety of hairstyles.

    pretty much agree with all your points here guys, after watching all 3 of the conferences now, i think sony had the best content, im not sold on the wii U as i sold my wii and wont go back there again. halo 4 i couldnt care less about and halo 4 is actually halo 7 and now there will be another 3 ! wow and i thought activision milked franchises ! where was the bomb shells at sony though ? where was kevin butler, where was twisted metal, last guardian and price drop for ps3? I actually feel this years e3 was a little underwhelming for me. To see all tom clancy games making it to kinect is a big mistake, more on rails games and even Cryteks new game is for kinect Noooooooooo !!
