i was leaning towards buying a ps4 before this but now im undecided. I think Microsoft seriously nailed. They did what they had to do, which is going back from the free license incident (backward compatibility? wow) and push on the connection with Windows (mods? yeah!) plus the hololens was impressive. Too bad i don't like microsoft's main exclusives. And not may new games showed. may have to wait till gamescom to decide..

Looking forward to sony's press conference. If they announce cool new exclusives and a more powerful ps4 slim they could make the comeback.

That VR was pretty cool. I'd love to try it out myself. I could think of plenty of ways to use it. Education and training, for example. Teleconferences on the move through my workplace. Application, network, and storage design. Funny, the last application I think of when I saw it is games lol. But sweet.

I also called a Gears of War 1 HD remake a few months ago and people told me I was stupid or crazy for thinking MS would reveal it at E3. Vindicated! People forget that last gen last a long, long time, and many people didn't play the early generation games (particularly if they're still young - currently 18-24 years old).

I'm also not sure why everyone is so impressed by Hololens. They didn't do anything with it but look around the map. It looks incredibly limited in use as far as interactivity goes. I was personally very underwhelmed by it. Compared to the concept video they showed last E3, it seemed to have little use.

Wasn't overly impressed other than backwards compatibility announcement. Recore looks like it could be cool, but they didn't show much information about it. Overall, Microsoft didn't show enough new games and definitely not much new IP. Pirate MMO could be cool, but it looked too similar to other MMOs.

@kentray1985: really the exclusives aren't really that good, ok the backwards compatibility, hololens and fallout 4 mods are all cool but the MS games kinda lacking. wanted to see something other then gears, halo, forza and tombraider. other then some indie games fable there was really only 2 new ip's.

@neowarrior793: I agree with you but seems like this is the direction the industry is going. Let's hope sony's conference proves me wrong.

I may not be an Xbox gamer and their games in general don't appeal to me, but that was a very strong E3 presentation. Sony and Nintendo got a lot to do to top this.

@da_illest101: Nintendo just needs to show more Zelda and say the name (just say the name!) Metroid. A Wii U Animal Crossing and/or Pokemon would drive people bonkers as well.

I read Sony's agenda on some other site, probably GAF, and I don't recall seeing much there that's going to be any more impressive than what MS showed off. A remake or two, several new IP's, Morpheus. Etc.

Well know Xbox one owners will get 3 to 4 free games a month now since backwards compatibility is being rolled out. Another plus for the MS community

Turn off update sound? I see people saying it's in notification settings, but nothing seems to affect it.

@kgallis21: I don't think we'll see PS3, unless it's via PSNow - the emulation shouldn't be possible on the hardware. But I'm hoping this spurs them to reintroduce PS1/PS2 BC finally.

@da_illest101: It keeps me from having to haul around to consoles. I travel extensively for work. I take all my systems with me to game in the hotel room at night. It matters. It matters to people that carry their consoles to their friends houses to play.

@tmorri603: It keeps me from having to haul around two consoles vs one. I travel extensively for work. I take all my systems (PS4, XB1, 360, laptop.) with me to game in the hotel room at night. It matters. It matters to people that carry their consoles to their friends houses to play.

@tmorri603: not necessarily. Old systems die, and/or why take up a bunch of space under your TV for maybe 2 old favorite games you want to play?

For example, I have a few PS1 games I still like to play from time to time. It's really not worth it, except from a "collector factor" to have a PS1 under the TV for a couple of games. Being able to play them in my PS3 is great.

It's not a system-selling feature, but it's a nice little feature to add
