In all honesty. It was better than I expected. But no megaton bombs were really dropped.

The only things that surprised me was the MGSV opening, Ted Price announcing their first exclusive for MS, Dead Rising 3 being exclusive, and Halo 5 coming so soon.

Everything else didn't exactly warrant a $499 price tag for me IMO.

I'll probably get torn apart for this or be labelled a fanboy (which I am, but I'm an honest and objective one), I think the conference was a whole lotta fail with a couple high points here and there.

Trying to compete with Sony's Plus program with 2 ancient games a month? LOL I can't believe the crowd didn't burst out laughing. Instead they cheered....yeah....right.....

Killer Instinct would be great.....too bad it looks like crap.

Most of the Xbox 1 games didn't even look as good as PS3 exclusives.....and in some cases even as good as cross-platform PS360 games.

Turn 10 being the typical BS artists they are say outright....."and here's a trailer of all in-game footage" and the trailer in all had less than 1 second of actual in-game footage.....WTF was that? And "Hey watchc how smart this amazing human A.I. it just spins and crashes for no reason at all and the next car gets passed like rookie Gran Turismo A.I. LOL What a joke. Why are Turn 10 such BS'ers?

Halo without even a slight look at game footage? It's gonna be a LONG wait then because they showed Halo 3 and 4 footage LONG before launch.

Best looking game at the conference was MGS5 and it looks GLORIOUS.

About the X1 pricing. I think the price of $499 would be great if the hardware and more importantly software were actually worth that. Unfortunately, it's not...... I think people on the internet already tearing up the price are being rediculous. That is a good price for real next-gen hardware. Xbox 1 however......isn't worth it. If PS4 is $499 with plenty of storage space, I'll be happy as a fly on doodoo.

Yeah, how people like you are still on this site is beyond me. Completely expected based on your posting history. MS had a solid conference and several titles that graphically crush the PS4.. Just gonna stop no convincing those with their head in the sand.

TheBrit1988d ago

You obviously did not listen or understand the human A.I side of it because spinning out like that was exactly how it was supposed to be.

It was showing how the system was racing like the human player it was representing because it had learnt from it.

That demo was demonstrating how a person can be at work but their A.I counter-part is racing for them based on how they race so if a bonehead driver makes a bone head move and spins out time and time again, the computer is learning from that and driving in a very similar fashion.

At least that's what I got from it, maybe I'm the one that's wrong - wouldn't be the first time.

"and several titles that graphically crush the PS4"

LMFAO!!! You can't be serious... XD

The best looking title in that conference was MGSV which is pretty funny considering the PS4 version will probably be superior. LOL!

And I'm sorry but...

Killzone SF > Titan Fall
DriveClub > Forza 5

Urusernamesucks1988d ago


tittan defenitly lookz more amazing than kzsf, youd need to have your head up your ass to say other wise.

Forza has more realistic and more closer to a sim.


Larry L1988d ago (Edited 1988d ago )

What about my posting history? I don't sit on here ripping apart MS all day. I call it like I see it. Their presser was solid, yeah. Compared to their last 3 years at E3 with conferences filled with nothing but non-sense. AT least this was all about games. I gove them credit there. But nothing other than MGS5 and The WItcher looked what I'd call amazing, both on PS4.

RYSE *LOOKED* good, yeah. But graphics was all I saw there. Content wise it looks like a poor man's God of War without all the amazing, compelling, huge boss battles, and gameplay/combat wise it looks more boring and repetetive than Assassin's Creed 1.

I'm not sure it's me with my head in the sand.

@ The Brit

So you're telling me that after he went on about how we racing game fans want better, more realistic A.I. that actually races like real people......and after he says they came up with this amazing system that learns how real gamers drive, and that gamer can then let others use that Gamer's A.I. in their offline racing......the very first thing that happens when they show you actual in game examples of this system being implemented is 2 cars just wreck for no reason at all, and the second thing that happens is another car that had no issues at all just get's passed like it's standing still putting up no fight at all.........this impresses you?

That whole little video showing that A.I. in play was showing complete idiot A.I. or at best decent A.I. that could at least keep a line. It looked no better than what Forza has now in fact I'd say it looks worse.

I'm sorry....I race online for hours almost every night in multiple games. None of that looked like racing other people online in a realistic racing game.

I think that's a fair summary.

Although wasn't Halo just 2014?... So could be a Sept release next year.

Didn't blow me away at all, but some nice stuff. Especially Dead Rising 3 and Project Spark.

TheBrit1988d ago

I love the xbox but I doubt project spark works as quick and well as they just showed.

Jdoki1988d ago

Yeah, these things are never as slick in reality. LBP can be a pain sometimes. But for those who persist I think there's going to be some mind blowing community content made for Spark.

Flipgeneral1988d ago


A solid conference overall. But it still lacked that bombshell that would make me insert the Fry meme from Futurama :)

despair1988d ago

awesome games but nothing super surprising just really good looking games. Unfortunately without addressing anything of the DRM etc. and the push for cloud computing I think always online games(not the console) will be prevalent.

Pillville1988d ago (Edited 1988d ago )

Games looked good. Too bad I'll never buy a DRM machine.

If Sony does the same, I won't buy PS4 either.

I guess I'm just an old fashion person to think I should own what I buy.

givemeshelter1988d ago

If Sony states
"We will leave it yup to publishers..."
Then you will have a PS4 DRM machine also for 3rd party games as Publishers will follow suit almost for sure
