The Bonus Round predicts what you'll be hearing from Microsoft about the next generation of gaming
Here's what i want from this week 1)console design shown 2)controller 3)hardware features 4)XBL becoming a real service 5)few games shown Then @E3 MS should focus 100% on software
Jaffe: I gonna watch Microsoft press conference because i wanna see exclusive games. Exclusive games define the system http://www.reactiongifs.com... THIS!!
100% agreed Jaffe- may be abrasive but what he say's is true exclusives define a system, halo, forza and gears lets see what microsofts exclusives they have in store this launch for a new system. that is the entire point. it is a game system!
@NYC Yeah, pretty much. What MS must do imo. 1.) The real name of the console. 2.) Show the console 3.) Confirm and deny the rumors And of course tease the games and talk multimedia Tv stuff.
I read a rumor on maxconsoles.com that the Xbox will be called xbox now! And that the specs are now beefed up with 12gb of ram. Guess we will see come tues. All I no is MS better shift back to focusing on games or I will have a new main console.
I checked that out after reading your comment. I hope that is true it would stop the silly fanboy war console war in its tracks. Their would be no point in gamers trolling against MSFT. I'll be waiting to hear from the IBM guy. It makes sense with the historic secretcy and what is needed with Smartglass and a more powerful Kincet always running with more advanced functionality. Xbox music and sh!t must be able to now run while playing games etc. on and on etc Skype-ish features with multi player streaming custom music track from XBL with Smartglass running. Powerful Home theater PC gaming hybrid for all MSFT's products with Windows operating system. @majibeast maybe you need to go figure out what he is talking about before you reply to him. Also he doesn't seem too happy about it so you don't have to be so defensive. The guy above me seems like he is disappointed with a little damage control in his comment buy gives his brand of giving respect where it is due.
4.9tflops yeah the 720 will have a titan on board and it will blow up as soon as you turn it on.
Yeah I guess its true because you said so, I mean MS couldn't possibly know more about building consoles than you /s...go away troll
I think if theirs one area of clear criticism that one could call the PS4 even out on and an area where MS can one up them is actually showing what they talk about. Sony did a great job of announcing "next gen" features that get gamers juices going yet did very little in actually showing/demoing them. Everything from the share features, to the cloud stuff, to the camera, to the motion stuff was all just glossed over and never actually realized so that we all understood it. These PS4 features could be kick ass...but we have no idea as they didn't really show it...just talked aout them. MS can gain lots of tracking by talking, then showing. Live demos of what this actually looks and feels like would go a long way in mindshare of having a better grasp of "next gen" tech
So they all seem agree.Big focus on cable streaming, tablet /phone syncing and amazon apps etc and not so much about games. Kind of what i was afraid of.If that's the case then just wow Microsoft.I suppose i could just be optimistic and say well E3 is coming soon but, y'know, the last 3-4 E3's for them were just cringe worthy in every aspect.
Jaffe telling it like it is.
Listen Jaffe was direct, sharp, and on point. What gamer's want to know. Why should I spend my hard earn cash, on your system. How it going to contribute to my happiness. Because if it's showing me the same games as my pimp out rig. Why the hell would I want it. APPS. I have that on my PC and NEXUS. First in this order I want FREE LIVE. That's right mother fuckers How DARE YOU charge me, to use my own service. Second Exclusive games. Third NEW IPs. CHECK THIS OUT. Beef up specs are awesome. Better online is great, but i'm doing you a favor, if I buy your machine. In this economic unstable climate you can stick those point's up your @$$. I want free stuff games,themes,avatars, and cheap DLC. BETTER THAN PSN. You want to be than great company from the old days. MAKE IT HAPPEN. It's in your power.
If everyone has this mentality we would get so much more & less! Less BS, More Awesomesauce. Just don't buy the product people if it's not what you really want.
Sony fans are as bad as republicans sometimes. You have apps on 3 devices, I'm sure you have a cellphone, but if someone else does it I hate it. If you happen to be Microsoft. While Sony works out ways to get money for PSN Sony fans push for MS to make Live free. Exclusives. Yeah, how about another Twisted Metal. I wonder how much Jaffe's company lost on that mistake. If those things matter to people so much, buy a PS4. But also keep in mind that Sony almost went out of business giving you those things. Enjoy.
looks like they are having a difficulty finding reasons to get excited about the next Xbox prospect...
