See for yourself as Microsoft and game developer Harmonix gives 2012 E3 attendees a treat as Grammy-winning R&B artist Usher takes the stage during the Xbox 360 press briefing in Los Angeles.
Honestly there should of been gameplay with his performance. I know he was trying to promote his album but this is not the MTV music awards. He could of showed off the skills of DC 3 with him being a performance artist. That would of been great to see.
There is gameplay footage. It hits at roughly 3:29 into the video.
Thats not him playing, they should of X'd the performance and fully play the game from beginning to end.
I saw this live. I don't know much about the game, but I liked the performance.
This should not take place at a gaming convention, this put me in physical pain to watch.
It didn't cause me pain but between this, that SmartGlass thing that already exists and the Nike ad they had in the middle, I felt they wasted too much time on nonsense instead of games.
I agree on most points -- especially on the Nike ad-type presentation.
*Microsoft conference room* Phil Harrison: I know im the new guy here and all, but at playstation we always showed games and the press and gamers seemed to love that. Balmer:Hmmmmm Don Mattrick:How about this we rush through the coregames then spend 20 minutes talking about smartglass and finish it off with Usher on stage singing and dancing without even showing the game he is promoting. Balmer:Genius. Afterwards. Phil Harrison: I told you so /trollface.
Well they did show off his moves along with the game, granted it took a while to get there but they got there. As far as the promotion of the game I would have thought they would have used someone who has more than 1 song in the game like lady gaga, but usher only has 2...for now. As big as a dance central fan as i am i didn't see much improvement from the 2nd one, adding usher and his routine could have easily been done as a download like they have been doing...well, this one will most likely be a "used" buy for me.
I really liked his performance, but I can relate to most people who disliked the way DC3 was introduced. However, if this was done in, say, the VGA, then it would've been more appropriate. Still, I liked it.
what was microsoft thinking? XD
Call of Usher : Black Dance o_0 i cant believe i just said that
Can't stand acts like him. Things like this ruined E3 for me
