Phil will probably do the speaking this year. He's much more elegant than anyone MS has had in their roster in the last decade.

But watching Ballmer go red as a tomato and spaz out is always good for a laugh. Oh, well, there's still youtube memories for that:


How they don't just muzzle him, I'll never know.

Oh, and I'm excited to see what MS announces. I'm hoping its not as Kinect heavy as forecasted. We need some real, core competition this gen.

Lol, Balmer's a nutcase. That video is hilarious :P

Ballmer is the bomb. Love him, not your average "Suit" guy. You can tell he really loves what he does and I find it refreshing and hilarious to have someone like him come out and talk.

I hope they show more Kinect and hopefully Justin Bieber.

Irishguy95  +   768d ago
I wonder what'll happen.

MS has a great start to last gen...no reason for them not to have a great start next gen(assuming they ditched the 360/seems like it\ for the Nextbox)

Did Bungie not want to get bought by them?? The devs who made xbox what it is and the ones who basically sold xboxs for 2 gens are now making multi-plat games an exclusive ps4 content. Is it just me or is that a huge turn around? That Would be like naughty dog making xbox games and exclusive xbox content.

Guess 343 and halo brand are the new face of xbox

I hope Shane Kim comes up on stage to announce Resident Evil 5 for the 720. XD

(Those not familiar with the meme, at E3 2007, Shane Kim went on stage and told everybody that RE5 is coming to 360 as some massive megaton, even though we all knew that since 2006. He was confronted about this in an interview and was absolutely stunned when he found this out.)

~No it doesn't it means you intend to substitute a null terminated string in a pritnf command in the the c programming language.~

You surround your sarcastic statement with ~tildes~ if you are intending to point out your sarcasm.

For example...

~you have a great sarcastic sense of humor~

Excited for whatever they reveal, couldn't care less about the fan boy crap. I'll be getting both consoles next-gen.
JoGam  +   768d ago
I will try and get both. I have to buy two PS4's so buying three consoles will be tough. Need a second job.

@nukeitall, now why will i be buying two PS4'S for me? My son is a gamer however he doesn't live with me and I'm buying his too. So Yes I need to buy TWO PS4'S and if I have enough get a 720. Now that's where the second job comes in to play. Problem solved.

If you got a second job, you won't have time to play your three consoles!

Better getting ONE PS4 and ONE Xbox next.
mt  +   768d ago
I wish , I really wish if I will have the time If I buy both consoles. I always envy those people who say they own 3 consoles! sometimes work consumes 12 hours of my 24 daily hours. not counting hanging out with friends .. etc.

I have the perfect gaming friendly job. I work on price, each section of work I take on is worth a certain value. So I can knock out my days money in 5-6 hours, with just a small break in between and go home.

I'd hate to work 12 hours a day, I'd barely game at all. I don't know though, I'd probably still have all the consoles still.
FunkMacNasty  +   768d ago
@ mt - I was gaming on my ps2 well into 2007.. a full two years after this gen officially started. Didn't get my 360 until late '07, following the first price drop to $399.. (back then the ps3 was still $600 and had a small selection of titles available).. I didn't end up getting a ps3 until late 2010 when I picked up my 120g slim for $250..

And even still, i can't nearly find all the time I'd like to play on either console!! Between my wife, two jobs, and social obligations, I'm lucky to log in an hour of gaming each day, IF that! Although, on Sundays I'm usually able to put in a good few hours if nothing's happening!

@Technician Ted - I want your job!! haha! I'm lucky enough that my main 9-5/M-F job has very good benefits, which includes a generous paid-time-off package. Once in a while I usually put in for a week or a few days off, just so I can have the house to myself and enjoy my videogames for a couple of uninterupted hours.. and then nobody's home, so I can turn the surround sound up nice and loud and shut all the lights off! XD

Although I prefer PS3 over 360, I'm slightly excited to see what Microsoft has in store for their next gen system.
I'll most probably buy both just like current gen.

Troll comment time!!!

1) Looks like they found some free time in Usher's schedule.

2) Now with Kinnect 2.0, you are the rain coat!

3) you won't believe how epic the free services are that you'll have to pay to use

4) Who's ready to watch a far too excited adult play a kids Kinnect game on stage with a kid who isn't their kid??

All jokes aside, I'm excited to see what Microsoft brings to the table. I've said it multiple times on this site, but Sony and Nintendo fans need Microsoft to have a good show to help spark innovation in the industry.
Ron_Danger  +   768d ago
You guys take really bad joke way too seriously.
Vegetom  +   768d ago
Yeah well, it's freakin N4G. People hit the disagree button like a mofo, but are to scared/stupid to comment.

Without MS, Sony wouldn't be as far in the online business as it is now. Without Sony, MS would've waited a couple more years to come up with a next-gen console. WE NEED FREAKIN BOTH COMPANIES!

Cam977  +   768d ago
More like the next XBOX will crash and burn. I don't see how MS can possibly beat Sony's PS4; furthermore, I'm not raising my hopes for something to be revealed at an event with a name that's been selected by Monkeys.

"Xbox Event"

Besides, the man who's house got stormed for supposedly leaking the next XBOX's specs must've been right otherwise his house wouldn't have been raided. Those specs were lower than the PS4 too...

I'll be sticking with the PS4 next gen.

Can't wait. Remember boys, it is Sony that is in the Red while Microsoft have tons of $$$ so I wouldn't be surprise if they spent that money to buy up a few exclusives, making the system with similar spec $100 or more cheaper and getting every 3rd party support there is. If that is the case, I don't see how Sony can defeat Microsoft, in North America, at least.
