Major Nelson on Twitter: How long is the XboxReveal event tomorrow? The show will be an hour long

Not 2 hours, but just 1.

The story is too old to be commented.
MrBeatdown1553d ago

The Spike TV listing says it's an hour too.

There's a half hour GTTV thing after.

The Xbox 360 is also nearly 8 year old and long past it's natural cycle... Microsoft has been ramping up for the next system for the past year or so

Too bad it's at 1pm EST, middle of a work day. :(

@evildead360 - Pretty funny when the post game show is longer than the actual event lol.

@murdoc
I know I'm lucky its on when I'm not in work in the UK, you would have thought something as important to MS would have been planned for a Saturday or a sunday

chrismichaels041553d ago

@SMGP - I appreciate the metaphor, but this isnt Game 7 of the World Series. Its a video game conference. And in the world of video games, its pretty disappointing that Microsoft is going to be spending more time talking about the conference rather than actually showing us games in the conference itself. Id rather have Microsoft spend that extra time actually showing us more next gen games. Honestly, what real gamer is more interested in hearing about tech specs and apps over actual games?

'Pretty funny when the post game show is longer than the actual event lol.'

Nah, if you actually looked at what's scheduled to be shown it's between 3 different sources.

GT, MS, and Twitch. They were just smart enough to not have them coincide. The post even interview from GT is standard stuff.

But, I'd rather the event go an hour and have nothing but content than to have two with a lot of fluff.

Either way, the event is on Spike and I'm assuming it's commercial free. That costs an arm and a leg. Compared to just streaming it over the net.

E3 is where the magic is going to happen for both consoles.

Did spike cover the PS4 reveal or is this just a personal favor for MS?

pixelsword1553d ago (Edited 1553d ago )

That depends if Sony wanted Spike to cover the reveal.

And who watches Spike?

minimur121553d ago

My favorite show from Spike is MXC.. too bad they never show it anymore :(

FITgamer1553d ago

People use to watch spike when UFC was there. Now they have Bellator which is the only reason i watch it.

Docknoss1553d ago

Spike had covered the MS E3 for the past two years maybe three. But not Sony or Nintendo

Evil_Ryu1553d ago

i just read a article that said 2....what is it damn it!??!?!??!

greenpowerz1553d ago (Edited 1553d ago )

The TV broadcast/live stream is an hour with post events going on after.

MSFT is not going to pay for two hours of TV time to announce things they are saving for E3 spots.

This reveal event is not E3 showing off games it's just a console reveal and some basic displays of its hardware with some software showing it off.

MSFT isn't going to waste money on TV time trying to fluff up their reveal with things they need to talk about in later shows and or things they would like to do later on. An hour on hardware using games to do so can still be much more than a hour of mixed bags.

There seems to be many PS3 fanboys happy about this but it means nothing. There will be interviews and websites still sharing on it after the reveal and the developer embargo will be lifted as well which is more important.
