GiantBomb - Few real surprises reared their head at Microsoft's E3 event, but at least we know how much the system will cost now (a lot).
Silent but deadly So their conference was like a fart?
I lol'd There's nothing more sinister than stealthy fart..
I think they had a great show, I want a X1.
I wanted them to at least acknowledge the huge fan base they pissed off instead of showing games like nothing happened. I would as well would have liked to see a short short segment on the kinect, but I know I'm on the minority there lol
My thought of their conference. http://www.dayonepatch.com/...
Beat me to it shadow! It wasn't bad but I wish they clarified some more stuff about their system. Starting off with MGS5 was a great move. I hope Sony has some great surprises up their sleeve. They have to talk about 3 systems and create high expectations. Should be a great battle. A nice ace would be a late sept or Oct release! 1 month ahead can really start a nice domino effect.
I'd have said it was the opposite, loud but irrelevant would sum it up for me personally. The almost complete focus on games was great but their inability to address gamers concerns really let them down. Not to mention kinect is probably the reason it's so damn expensive yet as a gamer we have absolutely no idea why we're paying so much for it. Or are we paying all that extra for a glorified microphone?
@ 4Sh0w I thought their conference was good, but I don't want an X1, because I have more sense than to drop my consumer rights, denounce the ownership of all my games, and let publishers try and tell me what I can and cannot do with my physical disc that I bought. I won't spend $60 each for a game that essentially becomes a digital license whilst the disc becomes about as useful as a coaster. I'm also not going to risk being stuck with a brick if and when I don't have Internet provision. Don't forget to sign the petition: http://www.xboxshun.com
I have to say the conference itself was very good, but that doesn't matter with all the baggage that comes with the XB1
Pretty much how I'd describe it.
yeah silent and deadly 429 pounds wtf that seems a little steep to me
That wasn't the price. That's how much it weighs. Have you seen that thing?
http://www.youtube.com/watc... adam sessler puts it best watch it they had a good conference but it could have been much better, price is gonna have issue. Now all sony has to do is $399 and its over
i agree i hope sonys system is better priced. i dont understand the need to have kinect with the new xbox. it just means the system is gonna cost more. why not give people the option it feels there forcing kinect onto people
mrcapcom here is what i want to see a 2 hours conference show: Last Guardian start it it to make a huge impact get valve on stage to announce LFD 3 and get LFD1-2 in set new FF or versus coming soon KH3 Snenmue 1-2 HD collection and announce 3rd yakuza 5 for west along with hd collection for 1st and 2nd sony santa monica's new IP infamous second son demo KZ demo Knack demo proper Ratchet and clank game not done by Insomniac david jaffe's next game ready at dawn's next game deep down demo damn lol so much potential also sony $399 max price or maybe $449 MS did good but sony could really take E3 down with games,games and more games i would love to know how much MS paid for titanfall limited time exclusive, if anyone believes its gonna be a permanent exclusive they really kidding them self close the show with Fallout 4 also something from Take-two could be huge mafia 3 midnight club Bully 2 GTA HD collection let's see i am so excited for sony's e3 i hope they don't let us down
@mrcapcom Because now you have more thing that can brake. Before it was just red-ring now if kinect breaks you cant play any games or use your xbox. Kinda hard to trust Microsoft with any launch hardware... /conspiracy hat off
lol dude you are killing me.
was a powerful conference. Microsoft show far has the best show. I wonder how Sony will stack up Microsoft just amazed everyone.
@StraightPath Why do you even try. Smh.
was that a joke post ?! ....for your sake i hope you are just joking
must be one of those reputation managers...
@Straightpath Do you get a free Spybox, I mean Xbox one for your services?
Silent but violent farts are the best.
$500 for Minecraft!!
i thought it was a good presser, but i will not be buying the system.
LOOOL! Nice one!
Microsoft delivered the games. If THIS was the console reveal, my opinion on the Xbox One would be a complete reversal of what I think now. However, because we already know about the 24-hour DRM, the restrictions, the online required, etc., they failed to convince me why we NEED these restrictions. Not a single aspect of the conference made me think "yeah, now I can understand why we have the 24-hour check in and the online-required".
well said, my sentiments exactly
I was expecting some kind of explanation but they decided not to say anything was a bad move at least from my part, im fully convinced that i don't want an X1 restrictions by themselves are more then enough for me to not want one.
i think they are banking on people seeing the shiny stuff and forget about all the negative points.
The bottom line is they never address the HUGE Elephant in the room with all the restrictions and 24hrs check in. Now... they add a hefty price tag is not making the Xbox One look attractive. Lets see what the PS4 and the cost looks like. We all know like Microsoft they will have the games.
This was their chance to redeem their console and they didn't say anything; all the exclusives in the world won't sell me when you treat me like I'm on parole from pirating.
They avoided the elephant by naming the cloud, so most people realise they need internet, I think MS hopes. But I agree, they should also mention the evil dark thunderclouds over your house once you fail to check in with the master one terrible day. No more games at all.
Will you get over that DRM stuff already? MS has more to announce in the coming months. Edit: Sorry Stage, you weren't buying one from the very beginning anyway.
Why? A couple cool games and you give up your rights.
Will you get over the auto defence for MS like we should be thankful because it's some sort of privilege and we should not question it... please
First it was, "Wait till the reveal!" Then it was, "Wait till E3!" Now it's, "They have more to announce in the coming months!" LMAO!!!!!
Are you really saying this AngelicIceDiamond? Are you really? C'mon dude... http://media.tumblr.com/tum...
The only game im really jealous of is Dead Rising 3. Im hoping its just a timed exclusive. Other exclusive games were good, but nothing I really have to play. Sorry, if you disagree, thats my opinion.
dead rising didnt seem to have any gameplay that would last you more then an hour. it looked off to me. way to many zombies, generic no real goals and such. what looked ok was halo but that was a cg trailer and im tired of halo titanfall looked ok to but most these games are also on pc. that troll spark game had some cool stuff you can do in it but i dont want to play a bunch of created levels like that. didnt have any charm to it and lbp already beat it to the punch. not enough cool stuff that would make me get an xbox one over a ps4 especially with all the console restrictions. sony will be just way better in my opinion.
because if they had talked about anything not game related you would rage, first its "first thing microsoft needs to do is say that its all about games"
It was a good conference because MS finally realised that their games console should be about games. However, I won't be getting an xbone because of: !. 24hr online check 2. Extremely strict DRM 3. Kinect spy, home invasion camera Sorry Microsoft, you blew it.
People are acting like Sony will show no games... Ms showed a few exclusive and a whole bunch of games also Coming to Ps4 and all of a sudden Xbox won! wait until all 3 companies show what they have then make a decision ..
I haven't seen many people say that! In a few hours they'll be proven wrong though :D
Tons of articles on N4G are saying how MS made everything better because it showed games yet they forget all the Online and DRM crap they will use. Some are saying that xbox might win just on the games alone
I have to be honest, this was what I was looking for with their conference. It was pretty good overall, and nice looking games. Looks like MS is back in the game, but their policies are what still turn me off. And these policies are what will draw me to the PS4
Dam Right! My local Gamestop only had two pre orders left for Xbox One in only 45 minutes. I raced over there and put down $100 for the console and $10 for Both BF4 and FZ5. GT's social media tracking platform doing polling had XB1 destroying Nintendo and PS4 30 minutes before the MSFT presser.
good to know that is selling well, in the end it's all about the games
Kind of odd since that's not how GameStop allocates inventory. Nice try though. Edit @ below In that case you got played. GameStop knew the price of this before today. They had graphics ready right after the conference ended. GameStop has a total allocation for the entire company, and then they ship out the number of units needed for each store based on what they have in pre-orders. It's how they do every pre-order for hardware. They did the same "We're almost out of pre-order" crap for the Wii U.
WTF are you talking about? LOL I called and asked if XB1 was ready for pre order and she said they were in the process as we speak with MSFT and would be ready in a few minutes. I called back a little later and she said they were taking pre orders. I asked her earlier how much was the pre order and she assumed around $50. When I called the second time as I mentioned above, she said it was $100 and I said no way! to hee. I asked her if I could just wait, if they have any in at a later date during that second call. She said I only have a few left and I asked her when will she get some more in and she said she wouldn't. I raced over to Gamestop and before I payed for the pre order I asked her if she was just pulling my leg to get me to put the money down and she said No I only have two left. Nice try though LOL PS3 fanboys calling people liers because they don't like hearing something. When I got to gamestop people in front of me and the people behind me were there to pre order it. EDIT You fanboy I'm not lying just STFU about already. I fricken pre order the Xbox One for $100 and $5 for BF4 and $5 for FZ5 and all available pre orders were almost all spoken for when I got there except 2 in only about an hour.
Nothing fanboyish about it. Just calling you out on your BS that each store gets a certain amount of units to pre-order. It's not how GS works. Not with any console ever. I called my local gamestop and asked the manager who knows me, and I go in there all the time and asked her if they have a specific allocation per store and she said no. So, you either got played, or you're making stuff up for what I would assume to be fanboy reasons based on your posting history. Which is it? You played into marketing hype, or your a fan boy? Edit: I'm not disputing that you pre-ordered, just the thing about they only had 2 left. Edit 2: must not have been more than 1 person in front of you then if they only had 2 left when you called...would suck for the people behind you I guess. Try to keep your BS straight at least. Edit @ below I did call them. I know almost all the employees there by name, and they know me. I'm in there twice a week or more. I simply asked if they had a limited number of pre-orders per store, and she said no. Asked me if I wanted one, I said no, said I'd be in tomorrow for a PS4 pre-order. And yes I did check after my initial post. Edit: Yes, GameStop as a whole gets an amount allocated to them. Then each store takes preorders based on that, and then the number of pre-orders determines how many get sent to a particular store. That is GameStop's policy. They do not limit the amount to a specific number per store. But whatever. If people are interested they can call their local GameStop and see if it's available for pre-order. Or order on Amazon, or whatever. Ubisoft's presser is starting, so enjoy.
Or you could actually call your gamestop and make sure you know WTF you're talking about before you call Somebody out LMAO Better to make sure than to assume. Ask if MSFT and GS changed policy. Did you even check or do you just think that's MSFT's and GT's policy. She just said that GS has an amount allocated to them and if they run out they can't get anymore(they ran out). It's what two employees just said after I called again just now just incase some random fanboy knew more than the employees talking to MSFT today about it LMAO.
@ greenpowerz. Paper launch confirmed? Lol
Green you're awesome
What is the minimum down for a console?
It was a good conference, but the only exclusive I saw of interest was Dead Rising 3. MGSV and Dark Souls 2 was the best games, but they are multiplatform. But Dead Rising looked awesome, just not enough to sell the entire system to me.
best looking game was MGS5, and i'll be picking that up on PS4 since i've played all the MGS on playstation platforms. its good though that microsoft fans can get to play this also.
Good conference, just a shame about the console itself I guess.
Witcher 3 and Metal Gear for me, but for Ps4. :D Now let's see what Sony has to offer, I hope for Deep Down, Final Fantasy Versus, Sony Santa Monica's new IP...
I don't think Sony Santa Monica has a new IP just DLC for God of War. Witcher 3 is looking hot.
It was beautiful, Forza and Dead rising are must haves for me this year, unless more of those exclusives will be out. When it comes to multi's, Metal gear and the witcher are must haves.
NO SALE MICROFART!
Deadly I wouldn't say that I still won't be getting an Xbox cause you still can't play online for free, but I will say this I am really excited for next gen after seeing those games, you can tell they have so much more freedom this time around, there will be so many more types of gameplay, I can't wait to see what they come up with, mgs5 dayuum that blew me away just thinking about how every time you can try a different approach :-)
Nothing can wash away DRM, 24hr online check in, kinect on... Bye bye xbox (d)one...
It seems like a lot of us(gamers) have our eyes wide open. I really...really hope that is true. I don't want to see this being successful, not because it's Microsoft and Xbox, but because of the foolish policies they are trying to push. I want them and the publishers to see they can't keep pushing gamers around like this. If that happens, they will have learned something and so will anyone else that was keen on those same ideas.
I doubt the PS4 will be $400.00, it will probably be the same at 500.00.
It was like that invisible power that comes out of my butt.
Got mine preordered cant wait to see what Sony is doing too. Bf4 and forza day one! Good day to be a gamer.
