Microsoft opened things up today, and Sony brings Monday's E3 presentation madness to a close. Tonight, Sony showed us a ton of stuff over the course of two hours — and people had plenty to say about it all.
The general sentiment I got is that people thought Sony's presser was strong, despite having a few middling parts or disappointing elements. It helped that Sony seemed very confident. Very confident.
Here's some of what people have to say about Sony's E3 presentation, be it on the company, the PS4, or any of the games showcased tonight:
the more i see of destiny, the less it looks like the "cowboys in post apocalyptic space" concept art. And the less I'm into it.

The Order could be a game just about wearing cool jackets and carrying lanterns through creepy places and I'd still play it.

Microsoft: "We're really happy for Sony and Nintendo." Sony: "EVERYTHING'S BETTER ON PLAYSTATION"

Re: FC4/BF:Hardline: I guess the power of these next gen consoles really lets us take grapple hook simulation technology to new levels.

It's pretty incredible how confident Sony is in all of it's stuff. It shows. #E32014

it's crazy: no man's sky is what I want to see out of triple-A games, and it's being made by a tiny indie studio

(The developers of No Man's Sky had a bit of a flooding problem last year — but to be clear, nobody actually drowned.)
i'd get a ps4 for no mans sky alone and never need to play anything else ever again.

How does Sony know I might have pressed that Share button accidentally while thinking it's select?

Wrap it up Sony, I gotta pee!

(The presentation did run sort of long...)
Sony's talking more about TV than Microsoft. Wow.

Sony and Microsoft stole each other's E3 events from last year.
— Markus Persson (@notch) June 10, 2014
Sony's only real downfall in their conference as going 2 hours and focusing on gimmicks and programming features. Get to the games!

so the Sony E3 presser wasn’t perfect, but I think we can all agree it blew the Xbox one out of the water?

On The Last Guardian:
So instead of The Last Guardian, we got Let It Die. Is Sony trying to tell us something?
— Cheesemeister (@Cheesemeister3k) June 10, 2014
The Last Guardian has not been cancelled. You can’t cancel a game that never really existed

Shesellssheshells caught a weird moment during the start of the presentation, when some audio seemed to come out of nowhere:
Folks couldn't seem to decide what Uncharted 4's ominous title refers to:
When it comes to GTA V, as happy as people are to see it on current platforms, there's only one thing on people's minds:
