6. God of War 3 CG teaser

For us, God of War is now one of Sony's most important franchises. Although it arrived fairly late on the PlayStation 2 it wowed gamers with its sublime visuals and action packed gameplay. The thought of what Sony's Santa Monica studio can do with Kratos on the PS3 is more than a little exciting. So, we sat through Sony's E3 press conference, knowing too well that any such reveal would be right at the end, and sure enough it arrived. It wasn't really what we wanted though. A brief CG trailer did little more than re-affirm what we already knew: God of War is coming to PS3. As far as we're concerned Sony might as well have not bothered.

5. No Gears of War 2 four-player campaign co-op

Somehow this was sneaked under the radar, but one of our biggest disappointments of E3 2008 was the confirmation that Gears of War 2 won't have four-player campaign co-op, something all Gears fans had been hoping for in the run up to the show. For us, the five-player co-op Horde mode, which sees you and your mates battle increasingly difficult waves of Horde in multiplayer maps, doesn't make up for what would have made Gears 2 a massive step up from the first game. Don't get us wrong, the two player coop game demo shown during Microsoft's conference showed that Gears 2's campaign looks stunning, but we're saddened that one of our great gaming hopes for this year has been dashed. Oh well, there's always Gears of War 3.

For me it was FFXIII going over to that 'other' system. IMO its just not gonna work. I think it will sell, but not like Square hopes. 360 is all about gay ass shooters. Playstation has always been the home for JRPGS. Theyre gonna be sorely disappointed when FFXIII sells a sh*tload more on PS3.

I think the hole gears of war 4 player thing was blown out of proportion. The game has always been essentially about the 2 guys. 2 player if fine it means they can keep the story in line. We know there was 4 in the original campaign but the story really is built for the 2. And about the new Horde mode, I cant wait to see what it is like and to get on with 4 of my friends and have waves of attacks, Sounds fun

@J-Man: So, you haven't found the SD-card slot yet?

You can get an 8GB SD card for less than £15 these days, and given just how tiny the Wii's save games are, how much storage do you need, exactly? I've got well over a dozen games on the Wii and I'm not coming close to running short of storage space - and that's with only a 1GB card in addition to the system memory.

From my perspective I was disappointed that Microsoft's answer to the challenge of Sony's Home was a redesign of the 360 Dashboard and the introduction of avatars.

Software is Microsoft's core industry, I was hoping they could come up with something with a little more competitive.

Despite all the mistakes that Sony did with the PS3, I agree with Kojima when it said that this machine is a Monster! I think that we didn´t see nothing yet! This is just the beginning! Remember the PS2´s llife cycle! :)

how about nintendo's lack of a storage solution that the wii is in desperate need of. how long do they think 512mb will last! and they had the nerve to say they were working on something; but now it seems like its all quiet on that front....
