Microsoft hosted a mind blowing E3 press conference earlier today in Los Angeles. So mind blowing that I'm having trouble imagining what Sony and Nintendo can possibly bring to the table tomorrow that will be the least bit impressive. They both have their work cut out for them.

I was actually expecting a lot from Sony this year... to name a few: Final Fantasy XIII, PlayStation Eye, PlayStation Home, PlayStation Network, some hot new exclusive-games on the PlayStation Store, a movie download service, SingStar, and maybe some hot new Square-Enix IP.

Well... Microsoft already announced all that... and more. They had answers to everything big that both Sony and Nintendo already have and more; in order: "A version" of Final Fantasy XIII is coming to the Xbox. Microsoft has their own webcam now that you can play games with. Avatars is Micrrosoft's answer to Home (and Nintendo Miis). A ton of new games are coming to Xbox Live, including some exclusive Portal content. Microsoft announced a partnership with Netflix. Lips is Microsoft's answer to SingStar (and Karaoke Revolution). There are 3 pretty great looking Square-Enix titles coming out on Xbox (either exclusive or timed-exclusive): The Last Remnant, Star Ocean: The Last Hope, and Infinite Undiscovery. The only thing Microsoft doesn't have now is motion sensing controllers -- which technically they do, because the Lips' microphones can sense the motions.

So with all that, what new and fresh can Sony possibly show off tomorrow? Sadly, probably just some PlayStation Portable rubbish. But maybe, if we're lucky, they will be able to pull off some amazing announcements regarding PS3. Perhaps God of War 3, Kingdom Hearts 3, or maybe a Final Fantasy 7 remake?

And Nintendo... eh, who cares? I'm not really interested in playing a game where I run in place in my living room, or in games with dated visuals, poor animation, or predictable AI.
