Kotaku - Technical difficulty struck the Microsoft E3 press conference this morning just as DICE was preparing to show off a trailer for Battlefield 4. The resulting awkwardness was amazing. Check it out above. Poor guy. "We will start over."
Yeah, that was funny. But DAMN Battlefield looked sexy. Looks like I'll be buying on X1 for the DLC
It looked good. But it also looked very boring. The SP that is. MP could be awesome
It's very clear that he was addressing to the Call of Duty crowd, not the Battlefield crowd.
I was thinking it's definitely the CoD curse LOL! and to be honest, THAT was disappointing, coming from DICE! that was no BF, it's a CoD in disguise!
So many fails in this conference. It seems like it was put together last minute. I'm willing to bet the original conference was gonna be all about TV stuff but since they got so much criticism they put together this half assed conference.
I was laughing my arse off....so funny! He almost left the stage!
TWICE! I lol'd
@gta2008 It was announced weeks ago, at the same time as the reveal that e3 was all going to be about games so no they were not going to talk about tv anyway
Looks like BF3 on PC using medium settings.
F1 key in the trailer. GG PC footage.
60fps tho which is nice
@B-radical For SP yes, however they never mentioned the MP, I wonder if that'll be lower?
@adorie Almost every game demo at E3 or console announcements is computer based. Final games, dev kits, etc are not finished for the consoles at this point. They don't have the capability to show it on the console at this point. I mean, it is still stupid, but also makes sense.
Another hasty assumption?
doesn't matter it's live show risk! i congratulate them it was all about games but too bad lots of CG trailers and lots of shooters. if PS4 costs 400$ competition is OVER! Greatness awaits 4>1
I agree. for $499, it's not cheap. It will require an internet connection. If Sony gets say at $399, it will be awesome.
499$ and dont forget another 60$ for Live and pay used games fees everytime ;) Greatness awaits 4>1
If 400 or even at the same price there wouldnt be much of a competition
Good chance they could go for 450 but if they want to really hurt em they will go for 399....it would be funny if sony is doing last minute price changes lol
The DLC's only a timed Exclusive. I'd wait to see the PS4's pricepoint first eh? ^_^;
Lmao "QUIET" but off topic the SP is always boring in Battlefield. But the graphics are gorgeous.
That awkward moment completely ruined the demo for me. I mean talk about killing the hype.
damn were are the haters now?! this was a spectacular show will sony match this greatness?!
First off that was far from spectacular. Secondly there is not enough game footage or exclusive dlc they can throw at me to make that locked down underpowered pc look interesting.
@NeoTribe All consoles are locked down underpowered PCs...
Sony will show 64 player mp.
Only ONE DLC content is coming to XboxOne first. All others launch at the same time across all platforms.
"Looks like I'll be buying on X1 for the DLC" Thanks for contributing to the death of a once great industry, just so you can play a map pack a week early.
Buying the X1 for DLC.. That is about the dumbest reason I have ever heard to buy anything. Watch all that DLC be released on other systems later or be crap compared to others exclusive DLC.. Ugh it never will end.
No wonder COD did not premier their game, it would've looked so ridiculously embarrassing compared to what BF4 brought to the table. Now the game runs on 60fps only gut-punches IW more painfully.
Are you SERIOUS? I sure hope most gamers don't follow what you've said. Considering everything that is going on with the new Xbox, I don't care if they were $200 and had all my favorites being released as exclusives, DRM is a no-go for me.
he wasn't connected online of course.. damn you xbone!
thats kharma MS...thats kharma
BATTLEFIELD/COD SAME PIECE OF CRAP EVERY YEAR. I WANT A REAL GAME NOT SAME CRAP FPS. this is why I don't play COD OR BATTLEFIELD
This was fast.
yeah, but their conference was just funny, it was like the 2010 E3 they did, it was even weirder when they tried to say things like: hey man that was great shot, or what not during different games. It was so obvious they are showing videoes as if they didn't even try to hide it. DR3 thing was so stupidly obvious. I really hope DR3 is a timed exclusive, and since it is Capcom I believe it is, although I'm not with the fact that it looks much more serious than DR2 but still I would rather be able to play it on my PS4 otherwise I will pick it up for PC!
how can it be serious when Adam Sandler is the main protagonist?
Lol, that really is a good argument, but it is serious in the way of colors, weapons that they showed you so far, the dialogs all of that, it is just a heavier tone, much heavier than DR2
Well they DID say "It will all be over soon."
You could tell that guy was about to go ape if that demo didn't start...
Sounds like Microsoft paying people to show up was true....they just didn't get the memo in time.
Yep. Microsoft has lots of faith in their Xbox hardware I see...
Haha that comment is hilarious given my original comment said "that guy" xD
I see the BF4 footage was on the PC. Edit: Seriously, the backspace button was at the top right of the screen.
should we move on lol
Actually Microsoft did well Now we have to see the counterattack from sony
I agree. That was a solid E3 presentation. And please notice, I am a Sony fan (not fanboy). It was pretty good, but I still won't be buying it.
I thought is was underwhelming, atleast they went all out on games but a lot of them looked C and B grade... Might a fact the ps4 anouncement had better lloking tittles and 1st party exclusives, mark my words tonight we will be blown away especially is sony retails the ps4 for $400-450.
For me it wasn't very interesting. only a few exclusives of interest. But I know what was wrong, most of the trailers are boring, they just tend to focus on blowing stuff up with little to nothing regarding the story behind the game. So the game may be good but the trailers failed to make me care about the game. And they totally avoided any discussion of DRM, used games etc. Not a good sign.
Would have died of embarrassment if i was that guy.
He, why? He had handed over a pre-made trailer to the organizer of the conference. They could not make it run with sound... I think he was more angry than embarrassed! Wasn't there another title that did not get sound?
Pretty sure Reggie Fils-Aime was backstage and pulled the plug. Mainly because EA's bodies weren't ready...
man the whole conference seemed rushed and frankly most of the games looked semi next gen. BF4 was definitely the best game there. And how come they never touched on the hardware specs, DRM and other issues. very shooter centric conference.
Yeah because launch titles always look as good as games coming out 5 years in a console's life... And streaming videos are a bad way to judge graphics.
By not mentioning specs they are hoping to avoid being compared to the ps4
I think Microsoft forgot that people hated Sony's 2006 conference.....
You can tell he was mad, he was about to give up and walk off of the stage.
He also seemed grumpy after the video finally played haha :-[
Lol that was obviously PC footage. Even had press backspace for Battlelog in the top right.
There's always some moment like this at E3. Either some1 screws up or says something dumb. Just great
That wasn't funny.
The most awkward was the whispered "oh god" during the completely silent crimson dragon trailer
That was pure parody to me!!!! That poop of a game will not sell 20K copies... The jokes the crowd made where epic....
And whoever demanded "QUIET!" When the audience started booing...could've asked politely u'know... This was probably the best bit out of the actual presentation segments, it was the first time I realised there was actually human beings there.
Like booing is ever polite itself. Responding in a similarly demonstrative way is the only way to make it clear that journalists have no right to be so childish when they are enjoying their junket to write their opinion pieces on games made by people who may be vastly more creative, technically skilled and thoughtful than the journalists. Anyone with a spellchecker who can feign sympathy can be a journalist- at its lowest it requires less than practically any other job. And at its highest it say more about that individual and the society that they are in than 'journalism' as a job itself.
It looked great but id get it on pc to me it was one of the least exciting games of the show ryse looked stunning.
I agree with you. I can honestly say I wish that RYSE was coming to PS4.
There was alot shown, and a few things i expected, I Knew about the insomniac exclusive as well as the Dead rising 3 from capcom, I wasn't blown away by the conference but they did well! That $500 price point isn't looking good and with all the oppressive restrictions the console has i just dont see a justification in owning the Xbox One! XBOX faithfuls this conference may have shown hope for games but you're paying more for restrictions... Whats also interesting is How MS is courting EA. Battlefield 4 was demonstrated on the Xbox One instead of COD... Crazy
