The Big Three make a bunch of promises every year at E3, during the big press conferences they throw at the start of the week. In 90 minutes or two hours, Sony, Microsoft, and Nintendo show off their newest hardware and biggest games.
We hear all kinds of guarantees: here's a game coming this fall. Here's hardware that will knock your socks off without breaking the bank. Here's a feature we solemnly swear is coming exclusively to our console's version of this game.
Some promises come true. Some don't. And while some delays make sense, other games that shine onstage simply vanish into the ether after the spotlight is gone.
So how did Sony, Microsoft, and Nintendo do? On the whole, they all kept to their words... but there are some glaring exceptions. Here's our roundup of how they all did.
And of course, we'll be covering this year's big press conferences, with all their promises and potential, right here on Kotaku.
