Poll: So who won Gamescom? (280 votes)

Microsoft 51%
Sony 48%

In your opinion, who had the better showing at Gamescom, and why? Who do you think made a better, more compelling case for their systems?

Sony, by far. I just don't care for Microsoft's offerings until Scalebound.

Sony they showed 10 times more variety in there games, and half of microsoft show (if not more) was full of third party games, I mean Fifa even showed up lol.

I counted alot more third party games at MS than Sony's, and now that it turns out Tomb Raider is only a Timed exclusive, MS lose another point from me, getting sick of MS and there timed exclusive i mean seriously someone tell me a good enough reason to invest in a Xbox1, because all i see is, exclusive's one after the other going to PC or other platforms. I'm trying hard not to be a fanboy and probably will get bashed, but I want a reason to buy all consoles, I want the exclusives, but I'm getting nothing, I mean Quantum Break looks awesome, but again, it is no way near coming out, if it was, then they'd of at least gave a year, Alan Wake took about 10years. so fustrating.

But yes Sony wins hands down for just variety in it's games instead of all guns blazing, i mean Wild looks so interesting, and Rime looks great, I do have to admit I think both didn't show enough to get me excited, not enough AAA games but still early yet, but honestly Sony is out doing themselves on variety, such a nice fresh change of pace, with the games they showed.

@StormyJoe: Silly lemming hasn't learned his lesson after all these years. Ninja Gaiden was a great Xbox exclusive. Untill they released the whole series on PS3. Mass Effect was a huge Xbox exclusive. How long did that last? All they have to do to get out of the exclusive agreement with MS is add something to the title. I remember reading about this year's ago. So although Rise of the tomb raider is exclusive to Xbox. Rise of the tomb raider Ultra edition won't be.

I'm not sure how anyone doesn't know this at this point.

The fact is, you do not know what is going to happen. But, instead of stating what you think will happen as a theory, you state it as fact. Much like people like you did with TitanFall.

I'd say Microsoft. More games that would appeal to the masses. But that said, BloodBorne and Rime look better than any Xbox game for me.

what games...you got nothing new announced ..tomb raider was known, all they did was play a shady trick on idiot fools who don't know any better. Same idiots who think call of duty is an xbox ip...

Sony showed new game after new game...messed up that this site's poll is saying ms won for 1 game, while on more reputable sites like neogaf, everyone there sees ms for what they are and noticed the influx of game announcements on the ps4 side, which this site didn't even care to mention.... wtf!!

Oh and that TR thing last night was confirmed by Phil I am a Asshole Spencer to be timed, in a Eurogamer interview:

If Sony actually showed something to sell that would appeal to people that doesn't own a PS4 yet, they would have won. I mean MS showed all sorts of bundles including One with 1TB HDD. Wish Sony had different bundles announced beside Destiny bundle. Would have been sweet if there was a PS4 bundle with customized console and 1TB HDD. But instead they pushed Playstation TV and PSN rentals more. I guess when you sell 10 mil, you kinda stop trying and sell other things.

But I don't think you understands MS strategy and why devs love it. Bioshock, Mass Effect, and Ninja Gaiden all appeared first on Xbox. MS doesn't force a dev to sell the IP to them, hence if there's a sequel down the line it can go multiplat. MS gets the luxury of being first and building its base in a franchise, the dev gets upfront cash and owns its IP, and eventually the game goes multiplat. This has been MS's strategy for years. MS doesn't care if six months to a year later the game is on other platforms.

MS still had the more interesting line-up from a PC gamers perspective. Very slightly but still enough.

Though having said that, they both announced some great games so everyone wins. Except EA, everything they showed was pure shit.

Agreed. I Voted MS because of TR, and argued it was pretty much a tie otherwise.

But now that TR has blown up in MS's face all over the web, I'm thinking I'd rather be Sony about now.

Wait, so people are actually voting for MS here?

I don't get it what the hell games are they hyping for MS here, did I miss something? People are talking about Sony was all indies and we want big AAA games then following up by saying "MS won" so what are these big AAA games?

There was Quantum Break (which looked great BTW but no release date) and timed exclusive Tomb Raider in 2015, what else? Or is Quantum Break the biggest real exclusive from MS that people are hyping other than the timed exclusivity of TR in 2015?

Some of you guys are saying MS and not close, so please whip out that AAA list of games MS had because there seems to be something I am missing here.

I don't "get it " either .... but Xbawx guys are going to vote Xbawx obviously , Sheep might not like all the attention the gen 8 leader PS4 is getting , Hermits might be upset that some of their former "exclusives" are coming to PS4 and voting Xbawx out of spite , and there are some really strange people here that have PS4's and like Sony .... but just like to troll PS fans for shits and giggles .... you know the type.

Seems that what it is.

it's so comical it's sad. I remember when lems were all the rage about MS having MORE GAMEZ. And Sony just dropped an apocalypses of games on there asses and all they can reply with is, but Tomb Raider11!!@

Lems what happened to that BILLION dollar for games MS was supposed to have invested in exclusives with? Did they give that money to Sony or something? Or was that just another bait and switch like kinect, 300,000 dedicated servers and teh cloud?

The fact that lems are suddenly acting like Tomb Raider is the greatest announcement ever should tell you just how bad the the MS line up actually is right now...this and it's not even exclusive.

well MS said they invested a billion in games for 15 exclusive games with 8 being new IPs. From that we've seen KI ryse, DR3, FM5, Titanfall, KSR released with fable legends, Halo MCC, Halo 5, FH2, SO, QB , and Scaleound. They are pretty close to that 15 already. On the flip side, after MS said that, Sony said they had 20 1st party exclsuives coming to the PS4 in the 1st year with 12 being new IPs which led to this thread click me. And so far we've seen KZ, knack, MLB, Infamous with LBP3 and DC coming. So 6 actually made the first year? I've mentioned this before and cows either ignore it or defend it, So i expect you to either not replay or rage, but it did disappoint me as a PS4 owner since I expected more because Sony told me i was getting more.

@SolidTy: So timed exclusivity again? I really wish MS would just spend that money on new games.

He has no idea. The only announcement made is "Xbox exclusive". He's hoping it's timed exclusive; which by Sony fan logic, that means it is timed exclusive.

I am sure Sony fans b*tched to high heaven when Sony went out and bought a bunch of studios (Naughty Dog) and games (Demon's Souls).

You were wrong...again. I had an idea it turns out and that idea was correct.

Not only did I have an idea, I was proven right in 24 hours time. That's pretty rad since I didn't have to wait a year to remind you. I wasn't hoping for any ports or whatever because I'm not a TR fan and if I was I would be buying this game on my 360 or my Xbone. If the game gets outstanding scores, I'll check it out Xmas 2015. It's a shame that the new TR is still a last gen game though. Batman has me far more excited (New gen only). This has nothing to do with Sony, Xbox, or PC, it has to do with you being wrong and now you may feel free to eat crow.

Face it, you were wrong when you said I had no idea. Here's a link to today's news on the timed exclusivity of TR:

http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2014-08-13-microsoft-confirms-rise-of-the-tomb-raider-xbox-exclusivity-deal-has-a-duration?

Spencer's comments confirm Square Enix, owner of Tomb Raider developer Crystal Dynamics, is free to do whatever it wants with the game and the franchise after the exclusivity deal ends, including releasing it on other platforms.

SPENCER: "Yes, the deal has a duration. I didn't buy it. I don't own the franchise."

Spencer's comments confirm Square Enix, owner of Tomb Raider developer Crystal Dynamics, is free to do whatever it wants with the game and the franchise after the exclusivity deal ends, including releasing it on other platforms.

AKA TIMED EXCLUSIVE as I said yesterday and you piped up with incorrect proclamations to defend your precious Xbox brand. If you let go of the Xbox long enough, you would have seen what I saw when I tried to nicely explain what all the PR Jargon meant. I literally don't care about TR, I got the last game for free and it could barely keep my interest. I never much liked TR back when it was world famous on PS1, and I hated it during the PS2 era. I think this last game was the best one, but that's not saying much. I own a 360 and an Xbone, if I wanted or cared, I would buy this game.

The only thing I cared to do was illuminate the situation but you had your X-goggles on and you couldn't see through the PR like I could. I can do this all day. In another thread I was asked if Silent Hills is an exclusive to PS4 and I answered no and listed reasons as well in that thread, again probably depressing PS4 fanboys. It nothing to do with PS, Xbox, Nintendo, PC...it's just my take on what the PR means. It's very simple. Who owns the IP? SE. What was said? Holiday 2015. This isn't hard to Breakdown, unless you want to be difficult about it.

Thank you for your time and I thank Phil Spencer for his interviewing prowess.

What what?!!! God Bless Phil Spencer and God Bless This Merry Home!

Now that this TR issue is settled, I'm more sad that this 2015 game is going to be held back by last gen assets. For those that don't know, this 2015 game is coming to 360.

I think MS just lost a lot of points, thanks to TR2 being timed exclusive and not a real exclusive title.

It was NEVER exclusive to begin with coming to 360 as well.

That's what I was trying to tell people, but no one would listen. The was never exclusive to begin with. We know it's coming out on the PC as that's where it started from. Only M$ knows how long the timed exclusive is. I'm thinking 8-12 months overall. Whatever. Still getting it for the XB1. I got the first game on XBox 360.
