Lots of Halo
If you don't like Halo, you probably didn't have a great time watching Microsoft's gamescom conference today. Having said that, they did have a decent indie sizzle reel showing, and the ID@Xbox program is making vast strides compared to how rigid its old ways were during the tail end of the 360.

Out of everything Nintendo announced, I'm mostly excited for the Smash Bros. news. Lady Palutena looks like a ton of fun to play, and the Mii features are a lot more detailed than I would have expected. Now, we just have to wait. As a huge Bayonetta fan, finally getting a real date confirmation made me happy as well.

The biggest developments were probably the new Smash Bros. additions as well as expanded NFC toy support. Here's everything that happened at Nintendo's E3 conference.
