After watching all of the press conferences live. Nintendo had BY FAR the best showing.



PS3s was highly disappointing as you might have already heard. Two versions of the console, one $500, the other $600. On top of that they somewhat stole the motion-sensor idea from Nintendo. All though it only supports 6 degrees tilting.



Nintendos was GREAT. Loads of new games, no time to mention everything. You need to see it yourself.



Microsoft asked for their conference not to be streamed. God knows why, but hre's what i know about it. GTA4 will be on XBOX, with episodic updates due to an exclusive deal with Rockstar. Lumines will be available in the Live Arcade.

I wonder if a girl will come over and play with my Wii.

Apostrophes, Inty, apostrophes.



Yes, I was impressed. Super Mario Galaxy and Zelda: Twilight Princess look great. I thought for awhile that I was seeing clips from the original Metroid Prime game, though. It looked almost identical to its prequels.

I think Nintendo did a great job. I hope Jon logs in sometime while he's out there and provides some info.



Sony is in trouble and they know it. The best they have to offer is it's the cheapest Blu-Ray player you can get. But who knows if it has the full functionallity of a stand alone unit. The PS2's dvd player is severely lacking.



Microsoft and Sony are just rehashing the same old same old. Nintendo is doing some rehashing, but at least its in a way no one has ever played before.



27 playable games at Nintendo's booth, plus some games scattered through the floor, it has to be an awesome event.

IGN is saying that to even get to play the Wii there was a 190 minute line.



Good luck to Jon. I really hope he got in and was able to play everything he wanted to.
