What did you think of the Microsoft and Sony Gamescom conferences?

I actually preferred the Microsoft Conference for E3 because of all the unannounced games and surprises. But, I think that for Gamescom I preferred the Sony conference over the Microsoft conference for the same reason.

Here is what I found interesting from each conference.

Big Announcements:

Microsoft:

Screamride
Rise of the Tomb Raider Exclusive
Quantum Break
Halo Channel

Sony:

Bloodborne Gameplay
P.T.(New Silent Hill Game)
Until Dawn
Tearaway:Unfolded
Wild
HellBlade

Indies:

Both systems had a good selection of indie titles. But, the ones that stood out for me were:

Microsoft:

My 2 most anticipated:

Below
Ori And The Blind Forest

Other interesting:

Gunscape
Massive Chalice
Escapists
Speedrunners

P.S. Super Hot had the worst trailer I have seen in a long time.

Sony:

My 2 most anticipated:

Rime
The Tomorrow Children

Other Interesting:

Hollow Point
Alienation
Vanishing of Ethan Carter
Dreamfall Chapters
Ether One


Overall, I would give the edge to Sony this year. Both conferences were pretty solid, But, Sony had a lot more big game reveals.

Microsoft was solid, But, IMO could of used a little less Fifa and Call of Duty. And could of used a few more game announcements. Most of the conference was the exact same things we saw at E3. They definitely have the best holiday line-up this year though.

I personally would of preferred to see a few more games we would be seeing in the near future. The only real new game announced was Screamride.

Both had good briefings. For me MS showed more stuff I am interested in. Ori and the Blind Forest is the big one for me. The more I see on it the more I want it.

They both really did have good conferences.

But what really sold me was the new Silent Hill. My second favorite franchise will finally rise out of the ashes.

I'm definitely excited for Ori but that's the only thing they showed that I'll be getting on my Xbox One.

I didn't get to watch it all but from what I saw I'd give them both 7-8/10. Good collection of varied games for both with good content showing them off. Yeah this has been a good gamescom.
