Huge difference. Sony threw some TV and hardware stuff in after 45 minutes of awesome game reveals and demos, and then followed it up with another 30 minutes of game reveals and demos. MS said hey look the Xbox 1 will be the center of your entertainment and it does all this stuff not related to gaming, then showed Ghosts and a Halo 5 logo.
I didn't watched a presentation. I like to watch the highlights =)
That being said, Sony and MS are both going hard after your living room. Sony did the smart thing and concentrated on the gaming aspects first, which is what they did with the PS3/Blu Ray drive. Get them in the homes first, THEN go after the rest of the living room. Hence why Blu Ray ran away with the HD Disc format wars. Fundamentally, the difference is that MS went after it harder, and it was a poor move.
I think the thing that I'm really thinking about is the idea of the of the new Rainbow Six game and the Battlefield Hardline. Not as much about wanton killing as it is about achieving a goal.
Oh, and I forgot Crackdown 3....Looks like we'll be able to really destroy things which looks like it will be devilishly fun!
Yep, it's primarily limited to Fox, ABC and NBC. There is a strong representation of the BBC and other shows. A lot of Anime, but that's not my thing anymore. You usually have to wait 24 hours after the live showing before you can see it on Hulu. As for how long it remains, well, that depends on the show.
The most interesting things that popped up for me are in no particular order:
AC Unity. I loved the French Revolution, and this looks like a real next-gen game. I loved the multi-player as it was presented. If it becomes that, that's so sweet!
2. Halo. I love me some Halo and that looks freaking awesome to have all the Halos in one place.
3. No Man's Sky. Exploring, space combat and alien dinosaurs? I'm in!
4. The Division. Dude, I love the destructible nature of the environments. The idea of the story is pretty awesome as well. There is also the story which looks really strong.
5. Cop games. Interning development from the military style shooters. Should make things interesting.
Good E3 so far. I need to read up more on Sony's 2 hour announcement before I think someone had a better press conference. Though it's funny that Sony is kind of replicating some of the same TV integration that people poopooed MS on last year.

Great post, and it's cool to read stuff like that. I do agree that we all pay too much attention to OTAs and are stressing too much right now. But we're all huge fans, what else do we have to do this summer? Canadian Football????
I do hope that our OTs shake out well, I'd love to see Bell become an average (or better) LT. That would be super nice!
As Zod spoke about the open competition between WRs, I'm loving that as well. I think we're not in as bad a shape as everyone thinks. 10-6 is completely reasonable and totally possible, if not better!
