Every E3 2014 Press Conference In One Place
Last year was a big E3 for all of the big 3 platform holders. We had the final reveals of the PS4 and Xbox One and Nintendo tried to re-emphasise the Wii U’s credentials as a viable system.

Looking back it was clear Sony was the big winner with a very solid presentation that gave gamers pretty much everything wanted. (When you have gamer press chanting Sony you know you’re doing something right!)
Microsoft on the other hand floundered by showcasing numerous unpopular features that gamers were not on board with. The fact that many of these were then back-tracked since (Kinect unbundled, DRM stripped etc.) only added to the perception that there was a lack of vision at Microsoft. Sony deftly used that momentum to solidify PlayStation 4’s current position as the number one next-gen platform.
But as exciting as last year’s E3 was, it was apparent that the focus was all about the hardware unveils. The next-gen games revealed were for the most part uninspired. Where were the true show stoppers? The killer apps? The AAA knockouts?
So that brings us right up to E3 2014. All five have a lot to prove and while it’s still far too early in the platform cycle to predict an overall winner some patterns are emerging. This is the event that was meant to prove to all the unconverted out there why they would fork out hard-earned cash on the next-gen systems.
We now know everything about the systems and E3 2014 was meant to be all about the games and about convincing us to upgrade to the next-gen.
So have they convinced you?
