Lol, probably the only thing they can boast with "better with kinect" and actually be accurate.

So they're basically doing the opposite of what sony did at it's reveal? lol

Although Sony no doubt has a number of new games to reveal at E3 as well.c'mon MS.At least a playable demo of something badass.

Although Microsoft may yet surprise us all,maybe with the illumiroom (im 90% sure about this)and the unveiling of the console itself (they have to show it now because they pointed and laughed and then judged Ninty and Sony for not doing it) the specs what will be on par with the PS4 (maybe a tiny bit better or tiny bit less but overal the same) and 10-12 min of gameplay from COD: Ghosts, FIFA, new Forza, PGR, maybe UFC and then a teaser of HALO 5.

But on the other hand, Sony will have some tricks up their sleeves as well, and a bunch of new games.(GG, Santa Monica, Naughty Dog etc) So overal, im looking forward to the next couple of weeks

Illumniroom will not be ready for this console when it launches, and even if by some miracle,it was, imagine the upkick in price for this console.
It is simply not viable right now.

I'm no expert offcourse, but we will see tonight.

Makes sense.
E3 is just around the corner, so we won't have to wait too long to see all the games ms is having developed for their new xbox.

I actually prefer it this way, E3 is about the games, let me know what I need to know about the console today. They only have an hour, so this is not so much of a surprise.

No excuse. They can show games now and then more games at E3.
aviator189  +   679d ago
I don't think it's a matter pulling out excuses.
Each company will have different strategies regarding product reveals and this is microsoft's.
cyhm3112  +   679d ago
they probably don't have that many exclusives to show, that's why they might leave it until E3. I think they at most will have only 1 NEW ip shown, no more.
LightofDarkness  +   679d ago
Ok, for all their criticism of Sony showing the games and not showing the hardware design for a games machine, they're now expecting to show the hardware design for a games machine without showing the GAMES?!

As gamers, I think we can all agree on what was more important to show, and it wasn't what the box looked like.

Not really, I look at this as more of a teaser for whats to come. If the rumors are correct about microsoft having "tons of exclusives" this format sets them up perfectly. With that said, I am pretty sure that they may show at least 1 or 2 games, but if they don't I personally wont be upset.

Pull that same bs in the E3 conference though and I will be highly upset.

After putting it like that i have to agree...

I would like a short reveal of the console and what it can do on paper, then go on about the games coming and how they look and play so far..

But then again its not going to be a long wait after ms reveals the console.. But then again sony did it just right with the way they did it..

4pm cant come soon enough!

But surely, if you'll showcase hardware, they must have something to show what it can do? Doesn't both go hand in hand?

If so they may as well of just waited for E3? I'm interested to see what they have, nonetheless.

MS has no fing software. They need time to pay people off, err incent developers to timed exclusivity deals.

Ahh MS such a breath of fresh air in the games industry.
aviator189  +   679d ago
I think you'll be surprised (pleasantly surprised or disappointingly surprised depending on your personal views on microsoft) by the amount of software substance ms has planned for the next xbox.
Nodoze  +   678d ago
You come down from your step stool yet? Reality sucks doesn't it.

Pssst MS has abandoned you. They are targeting Jocks and sports nuts with their new toy.
aviator189  +   678d ago

I'm just being a little optimistic. I don't see anything wrong with that.
Besides, you're the one coming off as arrogant and rude.
