Sessler's Soapbox: E3 2009 is the Best Show in Recent Memory
Adam is beyond pleased with E3 2009. Not only did Sony, Nintendo, and Microsoft have amazing press conferences with huge revelations, but games like Mass Effect 2 and Heavy Rain are examples of how high the level of quality is this year.

    I actually agree with what Vortex had to say. I have a 360, Wii, and PS3 and if i didn't save for a while i would have probably only been able to get a 360. Sony just needs to lower the price of the Ps3 once they do that PS2 and Sony fanboys will come running to the console. But they pretty much wasted money on the whole PSP Go! thing. Its pretty much useless, even though all-around Sony had a pretty damn good Press Con. Microsoft one word "GAMES" they delivered this year nothing more need be said. Nintendo, "JESUS CHRIST" stop with the freaking sales crap, all its doing is pissing off players. On that note, Happy B-Day Soapbox

    Why do we get Sessler in (semi) HD but no Webb or Munn in HD ?

    Seems like just another E3 (lots of good and bad games, booth babes woopie), sick of the "exclusives" .

    also I never said which was better, I just stated that it was cheapper to go with microsoft or nintendo then sony. Look I know you don't believe me but I don't expect Sony to sell many consoles until they cut the price.

    do you realize the irony in that while complaing about fanboyism you used the term "xbot" thereby nullifying any non-fanboy point you may of had. In fact after I saw the word "xbot" I stopped reading due to the fact that I believed that your ignorance may actually physically harm me.

    you do realize that the ps3 still cost 400 dollars which is still a lot, it's a lot cheapper to either get a wii and just buy motion plus in the end. I'm pretty sure both natal and ps3's motion controller are going to cost around 70-150 dollars (probably more).
    Also I'm not a fanboy, the only reason I have a 360 was because I was able to get it cheap (250 dollars) thanks to dell's discount during the holidays. If you must know I own every console except a ps3 (I do have a ps2, I've been using it to the first 3 silent hill games) And I could care less about these games: god of war, and halo.

    Like I said consoles should be around 300 or cheaper if companies expect to sell them

    Sessler I know you don't like nintendo but can you acknowledge that nintendo was there. Nintendo also did good too but you did not talk about it. ps3 and xbox 360 show sequels and motion control that nintendo already did. I thinf nintendo was the best in my opinion and I would respect your opinion but you igrnored nintendo e3 like it was not even there whats up with that.why can't our game industry grow up and stop acting like kids. How hard is it to say that all console are good in there own way and in one of your soapbox you talk about how you don't like fanboy or fanboy wars but your acting like one yourself so how does it feel to contradict yourself. I have all console and like them the same they have there good and bads but I like them so why can't we be fair.You talk little about nintendo on your site and show so that show me you don't care but its ok as long as I am enjoying it. I am not a fanboy I like a console a going to get good game for each.I still respect you as a person but what you did was kinda not fair so anyway happy birthday.

    GREAT E3!!!! GAMES, GAMES AND MORE GAMES!! CAN WE STOP IT with the WII at this point. I had a wii since day one. It has not been turn on in 8mos(to play gamecube games). MARIO 4 WII---WTF(cheap version off Little Big Planet--VERY CHEAP).I wish I bought a 360 for my second systems. Both Sony and Micro$oft motion controll has just blew what you have out of the water(way to go Mario). Project NATAL(eyetoy +) eh!! SONY!! SONY!!
    LAST GUARDIAN,RACHET,DC UNIVERSE,FF XIV....PHEW1111111. THAT just first PARTY GAMES(you never seen on 360). Give me Gears of War and Mass Effect on PS3(RIP 360)

    way to make it so obvious that you are clearly an xbot. how can a company win e3 with one feature...that's not fair to say. It's like me saying PS3 won it all just because of God of War 3, but that would be stupid :)

    also, you can't say anything about the ps3 motion controller. for one, there's no price on it yet, so how the frick can you say it's more expensive than the motion plus (there's no price on motion plus either, dipwad). also, how many times did sony mention that it's a mere prototype? It worked perfectly on all fronts in the demo, so how can you say it's better or worse than anything?

    silly xbots, making premature judgements and biased decisions. go die.

    -Microsoft: Won E3 just because of Natal
    -Sony: Good show but still no reason to buy a ps3 (nintendo has motion plus which is a lot cheaper to get then a ps3 + sony motion controler, and microsoft's Natal does so much more and their system is still cheaper then sony's system)
    -Nintendo: They Need to shut up about sales charts, but overall they have a lot of hardcore games for their system now which is really nice (most of them I don't think g4 reported on, I had to go to ign to see them)

    If you want to sell a system it's price has to be around 300 dollars or less.

    happy bday soapbox! I agree, both companies put on a great show

    but no mention of Nintendo? I was so impressed! 2 new zeldas, 2 new marios, and a new Metroid?! I think that deserves some credit. Not only that, but the Motion Plus looked promising and shows how awesome the next Zelda could be with accurate sword control.

    Also, Team Ninja co developing Metroid?!?! BOOYA!

    all devs and manufacturers FTW!
