Prediction: Nintendo will steal the show with Wii U.  The press and general public will rave about it.  Gamers themselves...not so much.

MS will do another "OMG IT'S KINECT!" press show.

Sony will still be apologizing for failure.

Smart glass is rather cool. It also undercuts the shit out of WII U.

I am not going to get excited about smart glass until I can see how it works with my iPad and iPhone.

I traded in my fun blog for several legal blogs. Or, "blawgs," as the cutesy attorney blawgosphere likes to call 'em.

This is the saddest Microsoft E3 presentation I've seen in years.

"Hey, you wanna pull up a map of the Game of Thrones universe being live updated by some wage slave data entry grunt? GOOGLE MAPS BING MAPS THAT SHIT."
"Hey, if you pay hundreds of dollars for a fucking Windows 8 tablet you can have some useless utility for games! Hang on guys, I know this is the 200th time we've played this map, but lemme pull up a useless map of this ship and read lore!"
"Here's some shit that Netflix was doing like 3 years ago!"

Ascend looked AWFUL. Like pre-beta awful.

So far you've been pretty correct.   Just about every game that's had a demo instead of being just a trailer has shown how it works with X-box

I'll confess I'm intrigued by the South Park game, though.

Matt Stone and Trey Parker do not want to do South Park anymore and have not wanted to for something like 5-6 years now.

They looked flat out pained to be doing this game.

I don't know if people want it. I may, it had some neat features in the home entertainment realm. It undercuts WII-U because it looks like a direct answer to it. I wonder if Nintendo has something else about WII-U to show. I think the WII does well as far as sales go.

Two second google numbers:

Worldwide sales figures

    Wii 95.85 million as of 31 March 2012[8]
    Xbox 360 65.8 million as of 12 January 2012[52]
    PlayStation 3 63.9 million as of 31 March 2012[5

Matt Stone and Trey Parker do not want to do South Park anymore and have not wanted to for something like 5-6 years now.

The intro joke was rather brilliant. I don't know about this "They don't want to do it anymore", they could remedy that easily.

If you're making tens of millions a year reliably churning out shit and signed a really long contract I imagine it's hard to just quit.

It's pretty clear they want to do ANYTHING but South Park. The only time I've seen them look remotely happy in interviews is the whole phase where their musical, "The Book of Mormon" was doing ridiculously well.

I know that, but I'll cry for them when they stop signing the renewal contracts and walk away from the money.   They haven't yet and they signed a renewal agreement through 2016 just last year.

That actually is a big deal. Here's what I wrote back in 2006 awesome, for real

Honestly, I think we are getting closer and closer to a merge. Pretty soon it wont be console vs PC, cause they console will be your PC. Look at xbox live on the 360, this is the first step IMO to merging the two machines. How long is it going to be really until we have one box and a nice TV? Not long. Also, FOR THE LOVE OF GOD GIVE ME A MOUSE AND KEYBOARD FOR MY XBOX.
Not going to happen as long as Microsoft can and continues to charge monopoly prices for its OS. It would be financial suicide for MS to allow people to run general applications on the Xbox/Xbox 360. Just imagine what would happen to MS's (and Intel's) stock if you could run IE and hook up a printer to a $299 Xbox 360.

So for MS to put IE on the Xbox to me means they see the writing on wall and the Windows gravy train at the consumer level is coming to an end.

It's almost a repeat of last year's E3.  Hell, this comic was made last year, and it's still holds true today:

Last of Us gameplay I watched about 30 seconds, and decided I'm going into blackout mode on this game. 

The naval battle in Assassin's Creed 3 looks amazingly fun.  We'll see.

Where did this come from? I liked the clip from the start, then from 6:30 onward my jaw dropped and hasn't closed. And I didn't see any bullet sponges. Still can't believe how good it all looked.

I had much the same reaction - my jaw hit the floor once he hacked the traffic signals.  They showed it at the Ubi conference, and while what they showed was running on PC, they've listed platforms as PC/360/PS3.    I'm kind of surprised that something that clearly has a LOT of money wrapped up in it has been so far under the radar until now.  

I wonder if this is what they did with all that work on Splinter Cell: Conviction that got canned when they shuffled it off to another studio and rebooted it.

I like how the character benevolently saved the guy who was trying to revive his girlfriend who seems to have been killed in uh, you know, the fucking traffic accident HE CAUSED.

It's super cool, but it reeks of scripting. I'll be truly impressed if you can wait for the guy to actually get there and THEN pull some shit.

edit: Also let me spoil what I can 100% guarantee is going to happen in The Last of Us - The Dad is going to die heroically at the end.

Sony is so bad at everything. So we have Beyond (Two Souls) which will just devolve into madness. The Last of Us which will be utterly amazing. Another fucking God of War. And fuckall else. Yay.

Oh and Jack Tretton has the charisma of the World's Ugliest Dog. They need to get a booth babe to just go up on stage, scream GAMES and then have a trailer. Rinse and repeat. No one fucking likes executives. E3 isn't an "industry" thing anymore. No one wants your shitty subscription service. Pack of idiots.

prerendered gen, perhaps.

i fear the game may turn out too much of a pre-scripted "use this ability here or else, watch 5 minutes of cutscene, repeat" sequence with some window dressing, but i guess give it a couple of years and we'll see. Maybe.

We turned on the tv in the middle of the AC3 naval battle and both of us were impressed, though I kept trying to figure out how much was actual gameplay. Just looked stunning, and I was hoping it was a new Pirates! title, honestly. Then they wrapped up the clip and said AC3 and I was all "Whu?".

Last of Us looked cool until they bleep bombed the shit out of things and I had to mute the tv before my cat clawed my face off. Dead Space 3 also got unnecessarily swear-bomby. I guess swearing is cool again?

And Watch Dogs...yeah. Please let them not screw that one up too much.
