E3 2014 Conferences Ranked: Who Won E3?

After last year’s conference, Sony came away as the clear winners, but this year the lines are a little more blurred. In fact, when we break it all down, it appears Microsoft wins. Let’s take a look.

It was exacerbated by Nintendo saying that the reason for this was because they wanted to avoid “social commentary”. Admittedly, Nintendo have handled this situation badly, but all those who are arguing that Nintendo are being homophobic are, frankly, wrong. Here’s why. Read More
