We reported yesterday on Microsoft’s E3 press conference and the subsequent Twitter reaction. Needless to say, denizens of the Twitterverse were not amused or entertained. This led to many of us wondering if Twitter would give the same treatment to Sony’s E3 press conference. It seems that it’s more of a mixed bag this time around.
Sony definitely won more people over by sticking to games and only games. I remember the days when Sony used to just tout sales numbers and tell us how awesome the PS2 was still doing instead of focusing on actual games. It seems becoming second to Microsoft earned them some humble pie. Instead of focusing on sales and content acquisitions like Microsoft, Sony spent most of their time on games and only games.
Unfortunately, not all was good with the Twitterverse. Just like Microsoft’s over excited pitch for Internet Explorer on Xbox 360, Sony killed all momentum by presenting a demo for its admittedly cool Wonderbook. The only problem was that the demo was boring and did not present the technology in the best light.
Despite what I may think, Twitter is more in tune with the cosmos of gaming. Let’s look to them to find true insight into how Sony fared during their showing at E3 2012:
#E3 some cool exclusives.
#E3 has convinced me that Sony is finally back on track and that Microsoft is about to blow it.
#E3 stuff last night and this morning. Ubisoft impressed me. Sony? Not so much.
#E3 was a bad choice purely for how tired I am now, but good for getting to see them fail with Wonderbook :p
