Well from the press conferences of all 5 shows. The games that made me excited were Splinter Cell Blacklist, TombRaider(not that I am fond with the Day one Exclusive deal), Watch_Dogs, Dead Space 3, Assassins Creed 3 and Liberation, Beyond, GOD OF WAR ASCENSION, The Last of Us. I did think the Ubisoft beginning was Great lol!

Something told me that Microsoft wouldn't bring much to their live press conference...
yeah Microsoft was pretty lame. It seem like they didn't have anything good to show. I mean one exclusive of Halo. I mean when did Tomb Raider a multiplatform game and had it's start on playstation become exlusive to Xbox for DLC? That is an Outrage and insult to gamers!
Tomb Raider Underworld had exclusive DLC on the Xbox 360. Legend also had DLC. As far as Tomb Raider starting on the Playstation platform, i think the Sega Saturn version came out before the PS version. But Tomb Raider had it's biggest Success on the Playstation platform.

A solid showing.

Well I will start by saying who had the weakest press conference so far..
Now this is from a gamer's propective and not some sort a fanwizard. I thought Microsoft presentation was pretty weak and I will say why. One I think they had one exclusive that might of gain some respect(Halo 4). Yet let's take a look at the others games.
Tomb Raider. Tomb Raider was born on Playstation and somehow it is being shown on Xbox Press Conference? Now if you took this away from their press conference, It would be pretty short. I am little annoyed that day one DLC is somehow exclusive to Xbox??
Splinter Cell Blacklist, now this is an UBISOFT game which is going multiplatform and I am pretty excited too. Yet if you took this away from the Xbox press conference, their show just got shorter.
Call of Duty Black OP2. Now I don't really care for this series. Yet they show this at the end of their conference. Now since it is really multiplatform it shouldn't be on Xbox's line up either. So take 11 minutes of gameplay and you really have a short press conference from Xbox.
Now they showed some Nike Training thing which I was yawning away the whole presentation. So take that away and what do you got, 20 minutes of a 1 and a half presentation.
EA had a few games that well Dead Space 3 and Crysis 3 was about it for me. Yet they had better games presented than the Xbox press Conference. I am annoyed they didn't reveal Mirrors Edge 2 or Half life 3. Yet who knows?
Ubisoft did a fantastic job with their presentation. I love the introduction in the beginning and the games were really exciting. Watch_Dogs is now on my wish list. Assassins Creed 3 and Liberation. Splinter Cell Blacklist was pretty good too, finally! FarCry 3.
Let's talk about Sony press Conference. Beyond blew my jaw on the floor. It looks like a real good game and I think it sort of has a supernatural twist to it that I might enjoy, Silent Hill fan and all. I think God of War Ascension well Kratos tearing a hole in Elephant man was EPIC as Usual;
was on my list of games that I wanted to see. The Last of Us is definitely on my list of games to get! The books of Spells was innovating and it might be great for some gamers, yet I might not get it right away. For me Sony did a lot better than last year. I think the ending with a shotgun blast to the face on The Last of Us was pretty Epic! Sony is a family oriented you know!
For me it is tie between Ubisoft and Sony, yet since God of War Ascension was part of the Sony presentation, I have to give Sony the The best Press Conference of the year award, um if I had an actual award to give them.
Xbox Press Conference 4/10-Tomb Raider and Splinter Cell Blacklist Nuff said. The rest was boring,
EA Press Conference 6/10-Dead Space, Crysis 3, Battlefield 3 Premium if you are into that!
Ubisoft Press Conference 8/10 Dance in the beginning with Girls, Assassins Creed 3, Watch_Dogs, Splinter Cell Blacklist, Storm
Sony Press Conference 9/10-Beyond knocked me out, God of War Ascension was just pure Epic, PS Vita Bundle with AC3 Liberation, The Last of Us was a shotgun blast to my fast LOL
Nintendo Press Conference ???

@FreshRevenge, no offense, but your review is somewhat biased.
You completley forgot about Halo 4, which I won't lie schocked me as I thought it would look far worse than it did, and Gears of War. And let's be fair, if "The Books of Spells" was part of Microsoft's conference you would have placed it under the "boring" section.
I am in no way biased, I own both consoles. I personally think both conferences were a 5/10
