Michael Futter writes Yesterday, we shared with you our thoughts on what Sony might thinking ahead of their E3 2012 press conference. Today, we're taking on Microsoft, and if the last two years are any indication, we're likely to see far more of the Kinect than the average gamer cares for. Barring a surprise on Monday morning, the Redmond, Washington powerhouse could be in a lot of trouble for the coming year.
Last week, I shared my belief that the recent rash of delays was an indicator that Microsoft and/or Sony had tipped off publishers that the next big thing would indeed be unveiled to the public at E3. Again, pushing off nearly completed titles to 2013 means that developers can both start to work on next-gen titles and leave publishes with enough rounds in the chamber to close out this console cycle. I may be wrong (and if I am, expect me to post a story about it), but only time will tell.
