It’s E3 time! And, as per usual, I’ll spend some time talking about what us, the general public, can see from E3. Specifically the Big 3′s conferences.
For full disclosure, here were my expectations for E3 2012 before the conferences started:
Microsoft would end up having a pretty worthless presentation, Sony would have a great presentation because, at this point, they NEED to, and Nintendo will kick ass with tons of Wii U announcements and 3DS dates and announcements. So basically: Business as usual for MS, Sony going more above and beyond than usual and Nintendo being Nintendo, pretty much.
So let’s talk about the 3 main conferences. What worked, what didn’t, who sucked, who didn’t, stuff like that.

Ah E3, a magical time for gamers where all the hottest new games are revealed, new hardware is shown and, outside of the big keynote conferences, more games are announced and tons of games are playable on the showfloor, sometimes for the first time, for journalists top try out and comment on them.
But the biggest part of E3 is definitely the big keynote conferences, namely the ones by Microsoft, Sony and Nintendo. I have a few things to say about them after watching them, so let’s go! Keep in mind I’m only talking about the big 3 here, so there’s gonna be no mention of the EA or Ubisoft conferences (despite Ubisoft kicking Microsoft’s ass, and that JUST by showing Rayman Origins footage… but I digress)..
Read on! (wow, I wrote a lot more than I thought I would… Oh well)

The Nintendo DS has proven, through its multiple versions to be a solid product in terms of marketing and mass appeal. Nintendo was ready at this yearâ€™s E3 to let part of the public get their hands on the next iteration of their portable gaming system, the Nintendo 3DS.
Iâ€™ve had the chance to try it after waiting a relatively short time (about 25 minutes in line) and Iâ€™ve got good things and bad things to say about it.
3DS, Console, ds, e3, Games, impressions
Well the E3 conferences are done. Some of them sucked, one of them was fucking awesome, and here I am to give my impressions on them.
I’ll comment about both things that were announced, and my impressions about the conferences as a whole. There were 5 big conferences, and I’ll talk about all of them, though I will just skim through the less interesting ones.
And I know that E3 isn’t done yet, more could be announced, but this is just about the conferences.
So read on!
