    I always find it baffling that they wheel out the developers to talk about their games.

    I mean, do we really care? Maybe Miyamoto, Kojima and a couple of others, but quite often you're getting people who aren't used to public speaking, talking like a monosyllabic robot.

    Like Sy Greenblum:

    When done well, there's a sense of honesty to it. A kind of personable feel which I guess is important.

    I do think, however, that the main presenter should always be someone who is skilled in such things. The best example this year were when they had devs/business people onstage and in one case, Joseph Gordon-Levitt came on, and Elijah Wood in the other. The Aisha Tyler bits for Ubisoft in previous years showed it too. An actor brings a natural charisma that just lights up the stage; the difference is stark.

    @Asura If you watch Ubi again the mic guy has totally been fired!

    More than a few instances where mics were left on and you could hear backstagers "you nailed it!" and "they always change my ****ing intro!"

    Hilarious!!

    Sony's had more than just the tent. There's an area for Tsushima and one for Spider-Man too. I thought the attendees were moving to each area for each 10 minute segment.

    I liked listening to Ashley Speicher, head of engineering at Xbox Game Pass, but that's because I thought she was a cutey.

    ****, I thought that was intentional - I heard the chatter but thought it was some kind of bad joke, given the informal nature of much of the presentation

    They were! That's why there was a delay between them.

    Sony's was the most hilariously hubristic, what with all the nonsense about moving between different tents. Microsoft's I really liked. They actually didn't have that much to show in terms of exclusives, but their approach - one game after another, basically - was spot on as a response to the fact that they are utterly bereft of software. Actual stuff announced by them aside, whoever designed their show was on point.
