Sony is the one I am waiting for but they always overpromise. I have quite a few gripes just about their PSN purchasing service as it is:

- Video rentals and downloads not available in Canada (CanCon, here we come again)
- It is impossible to sift through the sections and find the indie titles
- Wait, I have to PAY for a "Premium" theme? Pfffft.
- $15 for WORMS!? Seriously, let me say that again: $15....for....WORMS

As for game announcements; someone needs their butt kicked. I am sick and damn tired of listening to developers make sweet, sweet love to the PS3's "graphics horsepower" only to have the games released with ONLY 720P support. Resistance 2? 720P. Killzone 2? 720P InFamous? 720P and jaggies everywhere. If this isn't the biggest bunch of hipocracy in gaming's history, I don't know what is.

What will Sony announce? IMO, their closet will be even emptier than Microsoft's.

Sorry, the best melee weapon is the one they listed after the chainsaw: frying pan.

Yeah Natal definitely was the major highlight along with that Milo demo using it.

I like the looks of Forza 3 as well even though I haven't played the previous ones in depth. However when they come out, I was still more into arcade racing (like NFS style) but lately I've been more into the simulation style.

Instant video rental is a good idea but I don't see that being instant on my 5Mbps DSL connection but at least it sounds like it'll work in all countries now. Also I believe they mentioned it was called Zune Video or something, so I guess they're going to finally merge Zune and XBOX together.

Also you can download newly released games which will be interesting as well. However it wasn't mentioned in the conference itself. Payment via credit card rather than MS Points.

All the social networking stuff was a big "meh" for me cause I'm simply not into any of it but I can see the market for it. I'm sure people will love having Facebook and Twitter on there.

Oh and there was far too much Beatles Rock Band stuff in the beginning. Like WTF? Who cares? That's not something I'd be boasting when it runs on other platforms.

TBH, it was the first E3 conference I watched in full since it was on TV and I'm home, so I can't really compare it to prior years.
