Watch the Xbox Media Briefing live. Hosted by Major Nelson and Julie Alexandria.
I can't lie.....Microsoft is doing well so far at this years E3! Keep it up Microsoft!!
Been watching for 20 minutes, haven't seen or heard about anything to do with videogames.
Then maybe your watching something else. I can guarantee your not watching the MS conference.
No, I'm most definitely watching the MS conference. 20 minutes of talking about TV, sports and now onto music. Edit: Now fitness. I thought this was about gaming? Did they just show gears, forza, and halo and then devote the rest of the conference to non-gaming crap?
Watching their Kinect stuff now. Seems like the main focus. @ Frosty Yeah, something about Nike training. Probably another exercise game lol. Edit: Now they're on about smartphones. I'm gonna laugh so hard when IGN claims that MS had the best gaming showing.
Aside from the usual Halo/Gears/Fable/Splinter Cell and TONS of Kinect, nothing really new. MS has almost completely turned the Xbox to a casual machine. Bing, Xbox Music, Nike+? Sheesh
between the kinect, media and games so far. edit: xbox smart glass looks like an intriguing project. I can say that when im gaming, i always have my phone near me to look up tips when im stuck or cheats. having my existing galaxy s2 interact with my xbox...yeah im good with that. internet explorer coming to xbox...finally. Better late than never. It would be even better if it was firefox but i will take IE over the other console browsers. Useing my phone as the input device. Nice.
Compare this to their previous conferences.......Theyre doing a HELL of lot better this year! Their last conferences were beyond ridiculous.......This year they're actually showing games, and the Xbox Live features look pretty cool......Theyre doing good this year......last year was Kinect and filled with Kinect sh*t.....
Guess you somehow missed the trailers for halo 4, splinter cell, forza, fable, gears... Better check your eyesight then.
This is the worst conference I think I have ever seen. I forgot the Xbox doesn't play games anymore. Halo 4 is nothing we didn't know about, splinter cell is multiplat, forza horizon will be just a slightly modified version of forza same engine etc fable isn't worth mentioning it's the next "Kinect star wars" the Xbox is not a device I use for media, I have better devices, this is the Worst conference I have ever seen. Also a CGI trailer tells us nothing. Plus I'm not going to buy a Kinect just to use it as a glorified microphone in games, microphones have existed for ages. Just because it's a peice of junk doesn't mean it has to have exclusive microphone control, I have microphones on all my devices.
*shrugs* What can I say man? They're servicing their fan base....... Im still a Sony fanboy at heart and can't wait to see their conference, I know they're going to kill it......
Nice ie and bing on my Xbox/s. What happened to new games....
Ok now they're showing stupid shit....
WTF??!! Usher at E3... LOL
It's clear to anyone that's watching this that hardcore gaming is no longer their main focus. I'm watching the blops preview right now and it looks lame as usual..COD is the official FPS for little kids. *no new hardware which means Sony wont leak any info on PS4 :( *damn and that Usher sh*t was retarded, MS is clueless. *what pisses me off the most is that Res6 DLC will be a timed exclusive on 360. FFFUUU! No sale!
lol'd at closing with COD as a climax.. what a shotty MS E3..
it would have been a better close had it been the halo 4 footage instead of blops2. It would have been epic if they had done a repeat of when bill gates revealed halo 2 years ago. That was a good end to an e3 presentation. This time...not so much.
That was disappointing. Halo looked like Halo, Splinter Cell Black List looked like Splinter Cell Conviction, COD looked like COD and the Gears teaser looked like Gears. Tomb Raider was the best thing I saw from that conference. And the look at South Park was cool. They showed nothing new or exciting for xbox only though and their presentation had no big news or exciting announcements. The one game that looked interesting was the Portal-esque Matter but then it said 'made for Kinect' and I'm not buying a Kinect to play one game.
Halo, Splinter Cell, Forza, Fable, Gears of War? Aren't these the games they announced last year? And the year before and the year before and.....?
To clarify I'm not saying the games I listed suck. I'm just saying I don't need to watch gameplay to know what I'll get from those games if I buy them.
Wtf did I just watch o_o
@DK: I guess you didn't want the conference or can't read as there is plenty of negative things to say about MS' conference. It's clear they don't care about delivering new gaming experiences on their GAMING console. All they care about are sequels, timed exclusive DLC, Kinect, apps, Kinect, apps, and Kinect. You can be happy for the sequels to some of your favorite games, but if you're happy with the overall state of their focus and conference then you have low standards.
Just got off of work and will try to look at Microsoft's conference before Sony's conference comes on. I'm so excited that I get to watch Microsoft's and Sony's on the same day, plus I saw a preview of Nintendo's yesterday! I don't care if the games are Kinect-centered as long as they're good games.
Along with some Kinect games and Usher. I wish I was exaggerating.
Time to throw my Xbox in the toilet. Seriously where are the games?! All I use the useless thing is for party chat these days and it can't even do that right cos the wireless set barely works now. MS has the worst build quality and now no games make me forget about it.
I agree. Great pacing. I'm actually impressed with Kinect this time around. Did anyone else hear HHG in the background when Machinima popped up LOL?
Horrible conference. I doubt Sony or Nintendo do better well they will but probably not by much. Sony conference better not be talking about a lot of DLC either.
Well at the very least sony dont have kinect.
Wow Microsofts conference was so boring Nintendo's pre E3 presentation was more interesting than that.
The worst conference ive seen since nintendo's wii music conference.
The ONLY remotely exclusive thing that was interesting was Halo 4. Not a single interesting new IP or anything innovative at all. Just more milking of the usual suspects. Go ahead and vote me down if you're butthurt.
I agree with you. Look Halo the franchise is great and all but... The game play they showed wasn't really that impressive to me. IMO this may have been Microsoft's worst E3 presentation ever. If I only owned a 360 I would be very disappointed.
As much as I love gears and forza the conference was weak, again nothing really new or exciting, I get that you like your Xbox and ms, but how can you not agree that the thing was boring and predictable? I personally want more games from ms, they have soo much money and could of really been a challenge to Sony, and I know you don't like the look of most ps exclusives, but I do, it's what makes me want a ps, its why I bought a 360 in the first place
It was bad :(
I'm disappointed ms is really fucking the pooch on this one, really sad
This is probably the most disappointing E3 msft has ever done. I watch E3 for games not for apps or anything else, extremely disappointed with them. MSFT need to remember it's a gaming console not a dam computer. Halo 4 was the best part, best looking Halo ever. Can't wait.
well, i guess this means No new xbox till 2014. and everybody said the console wasn't future proof, by then 360 will be 8 years old. Congratulations ms your first console to truly have a long life!!
I'm disappointed, this was so boring to watch more than half the time were "US" exclusive media content I dont even get to use it here in Sweden. To much focus tablet/phone/kinect gimmick related stuff. I'm a hardcore Xbox 360 gamer and this is just the truth. It hurts that they didnt even show 1 new exclusive. I can only name 4 things that brought a smile on my face and that is: 1. Halo 4 gameplay, 2. Splinter Cell Blacklist (I did not see that coming and I enjoy Splinter Cell) 3. South Park game (I love southpark) 4. All Xbox 360 big in-house titles is announced at the same time for the first time. Halo, Gears, Forza, Fable. This probably means we will see "Xbox Next" by 2013. But still got to see new gameplay from E3 and 3rd party games.
a D+ for MS i mean the last 3 years they went from ok to bad to 2012 worst. EA has a lot more to show i mean MS see casuals and forgetting about us a new forza already really? we have GT5 and this it while how many forza games this gen alone> new halo new gears really MS that's so interesting disagree all you want i am a gamer and really pissed at MS we supported them early on to make a install base of millions and now they see casuals and forgetting about us american media will still think MS had a great showing and give them A and b as a gamer halo and gears everything else was ok at best
this is much better..... http://us.playstation.com/e...
Man! what a boring conference I almost fell asleep 20min in!!!!!!!!! nothing new what so ever. More subscription service I can get free on basic cable, Kinect games meh, Halo only good game, but nothing new what so ever. Usher was performing for Dance Central 3, gee, great more dance games 0_\. Microsoft bombed! I wonder if they know they are in a competition? I guess MS is dropping the hardcore crowd that made them rich.I was seriously underwhelmed. MS conference gets a "D"
@ Chitown71291: U say u can't lie, but u just did. Either that, or your delusional man. Smh.
Video Link is broken.
Consider yourself lucky, if you're smart enough you'd have saved yourself from wasting x amount of minutes of your life.
Halo 4 looks bloody awesome!! And forza horizon looks sweet roll on autumn
Why wouldn't you just watch this on your xbox???
Halo 4 really did look good. forza H interesting.. but breaking it down all we have really got is sequel after sequel after sequel and now it's kinect kinect kinect.. does not feel that great to me. I am really not that interested in how much I can talk to my xbox. how about some new IP's to play ?
Gamers don't care about fitness.
That's not true, I'm really starting to get back to my training/working out again. Difference is, games like this do jack shit for you but waste your time. Get out for a run or head off to the gym. Its the best thing for you.
I also care about fitness. But I just go to the gym like a normal person. I think what he meant is that someone who wants to play a video game, doesn't want to exercise. It's the mixing of both that just doesn't work well.
Halo 4, Kinect, kinect espn, kinect, rebranding of zune to xbox music and more kinect...meh
At least Halo looked like Halo again. I'm glad that Reach nonsense was just a one off thing and now they can get back to new stories with the characters we know. The next Gears is probably end of November 13. Yay! A trailer for a game that may be out in a year and a half. New forza then Kinect stuff. The smart window thing could be interesting but it depends on if developers actually use it. All in all I think last year's Kinectaganza was far worse. ("Look at the water! We can go anywhere!" *shudder*) but still not much to see that we haven't come to expect. For core gamers it's "Here's Halo and Gears will come out sometime. Oh, and some COD! Thanks for coming out."
Halo, gears, forza, and fable. They gonna ride that horse till it dies. Pretty sure they said kinnect 30 times in the first 40 mins... I'm done gaming on Xbox.
Microsoft is killing them right now.
I think that "Wrecked"(aka Angry Birds 3D) sent Sony and Nintendo to the ground.
Show started well with Halo and Splinter Cell (both looked awesome), but this fitness and espn stuff doesnt interest me. The smartglass thing seems like their attempt at doing what Nintendo and Sony are doing.
Halo and gears thats it? wow microsoft u fail
The crowd is barely into it if at all. Dont care what anybody say they're showing more entertainment instead of games. They showed like 4 games and like 10 apps. I do wonder if xbox smartglass is free. I just dont see them doing all that for free.
smart glass is kinda cool, seems like their answer to wii u in a way...
Let me get this straight.... When Microsoft copy someone else, it's their answer. When someone else copies Microsoft, it's a copycat!
eww internet explorer?
as someone said, "Can I use IE on my xbox to download chrome?" :D
The keyboard and controller are not good for using a browser on consoles they said. So I need a smartphone or a tablet and/or kinect to fully utilize it? Makes perfect sense /s
I think that was a good point. The keyboard doesn't belong in the living room and a controller doesn't work well for browsing the web. Sounds good for the three people who own a 360, Kinect, Windows tablet and Windows phone.
Well... That's what they have......
It just stopped working on my 360 so know I have to use Kotaku!? The thing should work on the MS platform at least!.
This is starting to become rerun every year with Xbox at E3. Show Halo, Gears, Fable, and of Course their bread and butter Kinect. Its only been 30 mins in but please no more TV netflix movie music synchronized tablet integration with voice activated fitness crap. More GAMES!!
wow... Miss croft does not have much luck going for her does she..
lmao! I was watching that and asking myself in what world would anyone survive all that punishment!
