Well, to elaborate further:
Microsoft comes in first for two big reasons. Number one: Alan Wake. I'm actually awaiting Alan Wake more than I am Halo 3, which is a GIGANTIC deal coming from me. Alan Wake looks like its seriously going to shake up the industry and looks to put Remedy, which did Max Payne, above "just another shooter developer" status. Showcasing absolutely revolutionary technology, and, from the sounds of things, absolutely revolutionary gameplay that has to do with using actual light as your defense. Hopefully we'll see some gameplay, and possibly a release date.
Second, everything else coming from Microsoft: Too Human, Bioshock, Halo 3, Mass Effect, Halo Wars, GTA4, XBLA games, I could go on and on.
Second is Sony, simply because I want to hear what they have to say about their performance on moving consoles, and how they're going to put their spin all over it. Also, they will probably show off Killzone and MGS4. As far as I'm concerned, MGS4 is the only thing Sony still has going for it, and it will be interesting to see if they'll give new info on it. But I'm not gonna hold my breath. Chances are, we'll see a new 5-10 minute trailer, perhaps in a new location, with Japanese voice acting, that ends with a startling cliff-hanger to get all the fans excited again.
Nintendo comes in last simply because they will undoubtedly be showing a bunch of games I respect, but nothing I would really want to run out and buy a Wii for. Sorry, but the 900th installment of Super Mario, and Metroid don't get me all giddy like it used to. And the last thing I need is a collection of mini-games when I can pop in World of Warcraft and play something really deep and complex for 12 hours.
