Here’s how Sony can win, no here’s how Microsoft can win—no forget those two, here’s how Nintendo can win. Enough already, do you want to know the sad truth? No one can win E3, not Sony, Microsoft or Nintendo. Here’s why the idea of winning E3 should be erased from gamers minds completely.
How can you win something that lacks rules? What conditions qualify a victory at E3? Is there something I’m missing here? Are the executives of each company hosting a Fight Club behind the scenes? If so I’m putting all my money on Reggie Fils-Aime. No, that would be ridiculous (and awesome), here’s the bottom-line, you can’t win something unless it’s a game, E3 isn’t a game, it’s a press event.
Now there are things Sony, Microsoft, and Nintendo can win at. They can win when it comes to sales. This can be proven; it’s easy to see who sold the most consoles or games. But how can you prove who impressed the most people at E3? Yes, you could ask around—but that’s not good enough, thus no winner can be announced.
This winner talk only feeds the diehards, enough already, just enjoy E3. Also stating that one is a winner means the others are losers. The gaming community needs to get past all the childish competitions. Each company will impress and bore us at the same time. It happens every year, like when Sony talked about 3D, Nintendo talked about sales, and Microsoft talked too much about Kinect. All those things were absolutely dreadful to hear about for an extended period.
To everyone that thinks a winner can be crowned, you’re wrong. No one will win, take that idea and bury it in a shallow grave in your backyard. What you should be saying is—this is who impressed me the most at E3, not “OMG so and so won by a “freakin” landslide bro! Did you see all those games? Wow, the competition got destroyed”. Yeah, calm down; come back to the real world.
