For me, Sony obviously took the crown for best conference. Nintendo was a mixed, but it did have more good than bad imo. Microsoft's was really underwhelming and did the worst of the three.


So here's my rating:


Sony: A

Nintendo: B- (only because of SSB4, otherwise it would have been a C+)

Microsoft: D-


Your thoughts?

TBH first post sounds about right. :P Guess I agree. Maybe a little higher for MS though, the conference itself wasn't bad, just the info we know about it.

Sony: B+ 
Thought it started it slow, but picked up fast and now am pretty excited for the PS4

Microsoft: D-
Would of been higher if they had fixed the Xbox One's several problems. Games like TitanFall, and Crimson Dragon saved it from failing.

Nintendo: N/A
Too early to decide. There's still a few more events taking place today that could change their grade.

Well, I don't get this + and - thing so I'll just give letters. (I'm from the UK, btw)


Microsoft: C
Nintendo: A

Sony: Haven't seen it yet but from what I've heard, I'll say it's an A.

Sony: A-
They showed some pretty good games and a reasonable price for that powerhouse

Microsoft: C-
Just exclusives and a steep price point for a console less powerful than PS4. Include an SKU without Kinect if that'll lower the price

Nintendo: B
They had Mario and Mario Kart, Amazingly smash bros did likety-split for me...honestly disappointed with the direct in general

I would have given it an A+, but they wasted time with the useless Sports commentary

Ubisoft: C+
Only Tom Clancy's The Division stuck out to me, everything else just disappointed.

I think EA won IMO, now lay the hate on me haha

Nintendo A+ - Really happy with the new games and I can't wait :)


Sony B+ - PS4 is nice, might consider it as my platform for non exclusive Nintendo games, would of made an A but the lack of LBP is disappointing.


Microsoft C - Project Spark and Ryse looked good, but the price was a bit unexpected.  No Fable upset me a lot.  I can only see me picking this up if the price drops.

Sony- A

Price point, games, no crap, slow start


Nintendo- B

Didn't disappoint but didn't impress either.  Only X and Smash bros got any hype from me.  Solid overall


Microsoft- C+

Was an admirable effort, but just fell short.  Then Sony made them look like crap.

Sony: A (they did well, but no title that intetested me except Kingdom Hearts and Infamous)

Microsoft: C (it was good until the price and realizing that you can get most of the games they showed on other systems. Glad they brought back Killer Instinct, but it's a F2P game that starts off with only 1 character.)

Nintendo: A (I was excited about every game they showed off outside of Wii Party U and Wii Fit U. I thought they really brought the game graphically, especially with Mario Kart, Bayonetta, X, Smash Bros (they fixed my concern woth the 3DS version about it being hard to see players), and that bit of Watch Dogs footage. Lacking in third party outside of Ubisoft and Warner Bros)

I only watched Sony's Nintendo's and Ubisoft's.


Sony- A+ (Not a sony gamer, but what they showed was AMAZING for their new console! And plus it plays used games and at 400$? The PS4 is a steal!)


Ubisoft- C- (They didn't show anything really new, a new rabbids, rayman, assassin's creed, and just dance... I wanted to see AC4 gameplay but had to wait until Sony's to see it! And also, the host was kinda annoying and tried too hard to be funny)


Nintendo- B- (Their new mario... was OK, I like the multiplayer and the cat suit is adorable, but it is too linear still, but I will still buy it for the multiplayer, mario kart 8 looks great, gonna buy it, super smash bros was awesome! Lack of third party support, though)



Add me on Wii U if you want to settle it in Smash

I only saw the tail end of the Microsoft conference, the Ubisoft one and the Nintendo direct.


Microsoft: They showed lots of guns, guns and open world guns. But some of the games looked good, 7/10.


Ubisoft: Nothing new for the Wii U, but it was decent enough. 7/10.


Nintendo: I liked the show a fair amount, and all of the games have been growing on me as the day has gone on so, 9/10.


All in all, I think Nintendo did a good job, but I am very worried about third party support.

Bring the noise.

I think Nintendo had a great conference and it's hard to grade them the same as Sony and MS as Nintendo was in a bit different position with their console already being sold at market.


So, there were a lot more unknowns for MS and Sony, which might have created a bit more interest. With this said, I grade the following:


Sony: A

Nintendo: A-

Microsoft C

Nintendo: B- (I was really expecting more, but I'm excited for the new "3D" Mario game, and SSB!)

I wanted a Metroid and a original Zelda but what Nintendo showed was actually pretty cool. Only draw back from their entire direct was weak third party support but at this point I think we all just wanted Nintendo games.
