MCV: Sony and Nintendo's E3 performance shows they've 'been on an extended vacation' says Xbox boss
What? Wait, again WHAT?! Are folks at MS using drugs or are they just acting stupid? IS this the guy that said they will outsell PS3 this generation worldwide? LOL Then i believe him on this one 2
Yeah I could tell by Junes NPD's how bad they have been slacking.
LOL Microsoft instead of spending all this time dissing Sony and co. how about you stop slacking off and start making your own games? Yeah? Yeah Microsoft, been real hard at work ripping everyone off. Mmm. Geez they come out with some stupid comments sometimes. Nintendo slacking off, yeah. But Sony has been showing (and keeps showing) more and more 1st party exclusives. So how about you Microsoft take a lead from Sony and start making your own games?
They are just looking like baboons trash talking like this. What happned to honor or humbleness in victory? Im ashamed of micrsoft and hope Sony and Nintendo makes them eat those words.
Yeah, some people just don't know how to be humble about victory, and of course they thought they won E3. Everyone thinks they won E3!
bill gates leaving would have such a dramatic effect with employees having total breakdowns and talking gibberish
Mattrick is such a douchebag. I'm really starting to hate that guy. If you want to see how a CEO should act, look at Jack Tretton! He doesn't say anything bad about his competitors, in fact he has stated that if the competition does well then that means the whole industry benefits and that is a good thing!
Did I see the same E3 everyone watched? Cause Microsoft's wasn't anything to piss your pants about.
What he doesnt know is that Sony have a lot of stuff underwraps that they chose not to reveal at E3. He will be eating his words ;)
This guy is pure comedy. I lol.
buying exclusives and making them multiplat is hard work. creating new IP is hard work.
Seriously, why are all these MS guys bashing the PS3? They're outselling you MS, if you had confidence in your product you would let it do the talking. You guys mouthing off makes it seem like that's all you have left. Lets hope not though because competition is good and makes all our games better but just shut up.
its not that serious. why do people take what he said with such anger? if you purchased a ps3 with your hard earned cash, well then why do you give a flying F what anyone says? i love my 360 and admit to be a 360 1st guy. mostly cause everyone i know have it so it makes sense to play most of my games with them rather than strangers. back to my point. knowing what my preference is, i dont believe this guy. well maybe the nintendo part is true. but the sony part...what else is he supposed to say? he's the face and voice of the 360 now. thats his job. but if i know better that what he said is false, the why dont most of the sony only guys notice it and ignore it? i think near to no remarks about this article would be saying a whole lot more about how you feel than to give this statement on minute of your time. just my own opinion.
Like I said, I think thats the reason why MS is doing the talk.
MS is just overconfident because of FFXIII. I would'nt count SONY and Nintendo out yet. Besides, truth is MS is slacking on sales. :)
'why do people take what he said with such anger?' Maybe they're tired of hearing this kind of crap for the last 18 months. ...and it's like someone saying your mother blows goats. She may not but it's going to piss most people off.
Just how much sh!t MS has been talking lately?! And yet, not one 360 fanboy has said a single thing about it yet. Yet had this been Sony talking sh!t, you know the 360 fanboys would be on it like flys on sh!t. Man, i tell you, fanboyism is fvcked up, mad fvcked up. It makes human beings act unfair, and irrationable, but oh well, i digress
Is he talking about a different E3 to the one I watched?
no... no fishy.. I think he dreamt this "espectacular" E3 that hes talking about...and suddenly just woke up... I think the only company on vacation here is MS where they have too much money to spend and just throw it around like its nothing important to them
cocaine is a hell of a drug
Exactly. And this bit had me laughing pretty hard: "Of course I'm going to be biased..." No no. Of course not. He's being perfectly reasonable with his assessment. Bah ha ha ha!
they were busy copying Sing star, PlayStation eye and Mii .On top of that they had to unload truck full of money to steal games from other platforms,,,,, how original,,,just like a breath of fresh air thank god for MS ;),,,such a gift to gaming industry
dont forget about about how RROD isnt FIXED YET
Money talks BS walks. Dont worry though you will eventually get to play all those delayed sony games.
yeah and you'll get to play all those... oh wait, just Gears 1.5. nvm
Seriously wtf is it with MS workers and the Nonsense they spit? Realtime Weapon change makes more sense than this guy =/.
I agree with you Sidar.He is getting his ass kicked by Nintendo and he isn't doing anything to stop it.
Seems like you need to be arrogant to work for sony or microsoft
"Seems like you need to be arrogant to work for sony or microsoft OR NINTENDO". There, I fixed your comment. Seriously, if you didn't think that Nintendo's E3 "we're not focusing on the core gamer" presentation wasn't just the most arrogant slap in the face move by a corporation then you, good sir, are blind. I mean, seriously, Nintendo promised games where I could leap around my living room like a ninja and destroy hoards of baddies with precision motion control! Instead? All we got was stupid ****ing carnival games, a freaking fitness board and low-res SD ports of games that had been released 2 years prior. Oh, and WiiMusic....I can't wait to see and hear all of the musical disasters that people post up on YouTube once that thing lands. And before anyone posts anything to try and retort or anything: No More Heroes Super Smash Brothers Brawl Twilight Princess Metroid Prime 3 Super Mario Galaxy There, I've listed all five games that you could possibly list to even convince me that Nintendo even cares about the core gamer and did you notice a pattern? 4 of them were 1st party and they all featured, you guessed it: Mario, Samus, Link.
hey twilight princess is on the gamecube and that version isn't mirrored =D
Wow WOW! Because Nintendo promises something and third party developers bring you carnival games its their fault? How about blaming everyone than i would understand your rant but you just seem to focuss on one company.
They copy - and do it better. Get yourself a 360.... you will never look back. You must be getting bored of THAT game on the PS3 now?
No thanks,,,PS3 has some games with unreal engine 3 so they don't need 11000000 variation of same engine for every game. I know they are crazy,,,they don't understand that UE3 is the best thing since sliced bread. so what PS3 owners they might all look the same but they are a bit different in game play.
Yes my Master. No wait.
buttercup why dont you go back to playing those miii and leave the harde core gaming to Sony ok
must be getting tired of sending that box back to M$ every month
LOL i just got a xbox 360 2 months ago, and guess what? i only have 1 game for it(gears of war). i thought i would be playing the 360 everyday since everybody were saying "oh XBL is soo much better", graphics are soo much better" i thought i should give myself a try and see it it lives up to the hype. now im see myself playing the ps3 everyday still since i got my 360. i havent played a game on 360 for almost a month. when i do play 360, its only for like half hour. i still yet have to enjoy my 360... i played rainbow six vegas 2 on 360 and it was a nightmare. its so much easier to use the PS3 controller for RSV2 because of the D-pad and where its located. i like 360 controllers but its not my choice for FPS that uses the D-pad. i really hope that i find a game worth playing to keep my 360 active but sadly i cant find a game
how can SONY of all people talk about ripping off people? SEGA and NINTENDO were around LONG before sony...... didn't SEGA have the 1st two CD based consoles? (Mega CD and SEGA saturn) didn't nintendo have the first analog pad? (N64 pad) didn't nintendo have rumble 1st? (N64 pad again) everybody borrows other ideas from the competition, its funny how microsoft are accused of ripping off yet PSN now has in game messageing (a rip off of a microsoft idea) ps3 now has trophys (ripping off 360's achievement system) and theres possibly gonna be listening to your own fave music in game (although microsoft have the copyright for that so sony will have to pay royalties)... in conclusion i love it when sony fanboys accuse the competition of RIPPING THEM OFF when thats all that sony have done for the 14 years that they have been in the gaming business
please read the thread ,,,it's not in general,,,and people are saying rip off cause frankly in E3 MS showed a clone of Mii,sing star,and PlayStation eye along with some multiplatform games.so some crazy people here are questioning how was MS E3 innovative?i know they are crazy ;)
tell me about it DUDE!!!!!!!! i mean....how can sony think THEY invented the ability to comunicate to another human being WTF?!!!?!?!?!?!?!?!? When is microsoft going to copy sony and make some decent first party games;)
Your examples aren't ripoffs. Instant messaging and game messaging have been around since PC online gaming, yes MS brought it in first to the console, but it is not an MS innovation to begin with and it is a natural extension of any online initiative. Trophy achievements have been in games since forever, It is not an MS innovation though they did bring it to the console first as a system wide scoreboard (but again not an innovation but a feature. There isn't any real tangible benefit as far I can see). Since the beginning of time, people have been turning down their in-game music and playing what they want to listen to on their sound system. In-game custom music again is an extension of that feature, not an innovation. In conclusion, short of achievements, all these features would've made it to the console systems with or without MS's help. You can stop patting MS's butt and your own head.
yak yak yak
Yes, sir. This guy is 360 exclusive. If the rivals are on vacation, than why is MS the company walking behind the facts? 1) Wii outsol it in less than a year. 2) Copying Singstar, Home and Miiss. 3) Wasted all its cards last year and is now desperately trying to grab as many games as possible because its already cardless. Its E3 showed no surprises whatsoever. Its innovative aspects are limited to copying its competitors and trash talking like America's finest. Sony has so many aces left, they can afford to go to a 2 year old vacation and still beat you with its hand tied.
Coming from the Company that Rushed its system for Market Share........ and OH I'm Sooooooooo sorry Sony and *N dont have Cash Royalties from Window/Office/excel to Spend on devs so the balk can be halfased.... hows that XBL piggy backing on M$ office's Networks doing u? good ok...... everytime i read one of theses M$ flacky spew fest i picture a A$$ farting in the wind.
Chief Koxucking Officer desperate xbots need some feel-good news cuz they can see the inexorable march of the SONY allied forces toward complete victory. it sux to lose, gimme some good news Tron Madick!
bunch of fanboys here i see. Everybody is copying. Sony copied live, Harddrive,of/on button,The triggers on a control,achievement,gamercard, videostore. Want more? Let the best win. Copy is good if u can make a difference
And a difference between copying and a needed functionality. For example, triggers are a needed part of a console, not a copy. CDs are an effective method of data storage, not a copy. Having an internet connection, because it would be held over your head if you didn't, not a copy. I mean, let's look back to before 2.4. Everybody laughed at the PS3, "No in-game XMB! AHAHAHHAAA!". Now, after the PS3 has it, "Can't believe they copied that -hate-hate-hate-". It's stupid HOWEVER, Avatars on the other hand look soooo similar to Miis it's quite clearly a copy. And honestly, a power switch is a copy? Please.
Microsoft copied: Dual Analoge sticks 4 shoulder buttons etc And Microsoft didn't invent achievements, lots of Sony games on the PS1 had achievements, but like Microsft notmally do, they took the idea, tweeked it slightly and said they invented it (Lips, avatars etc)
I say copying is good as long as you don't call it "innovation".
Yeah, people seem to forget Ratchet and Clank on the PS2 had skill points, I think thats what they called it, whenever you accomplish a certain task on a list, sound familiar, and you can use those skill points for extra stuff like new outfits or behind the scenes stuff
Hold up, if anyone coppied a control format it was MS, 1. their the ones who have remodelled their controller 3 time counting the first xbox. they just added 2 rights and left sony has always had that. 2. Just because the xbox was released a year earlier does not meant Sony coppied the control power on button (all three systems have this) 3. An if you give MS the credit for bringing hard drives to console, then you have to give sony the credit for being the first to put dvd, and even blu-ray into the consoles they even started virtivle standing consoles
Well there is truth there MS were the only ones with a groundbreaking announcement (even if FFXIII is still coming to PS3). When you look at nintendo conference....actually lets not look it. Sony on the other hand spent about 3/4 of the time talking abuot the PS2 and PSP which im sure most people dont really care about. E3 is meant to be when you annoucnce your biggest offerings you have and if thats a CG trailer of MAG then Sony are slacking off...BIG TIME, especially when you consider all the internal studios they have compared to the others
"Sony on the other hand spent about 3/4 of the time talking abuot the PS2 and PSP which im sure most people dont really care about" more people care about that more then all the next gen consoles added all together;)
Also the new E3 isn't that big event anymore where you would come and show some of your best stuff thanks to their new format which nobody seems to like in the game industry. Leipzeg and the Tokyo Game Show should be a lot better then E3.
Your ass has been slacking alot bot. Why don't you fix the RROD problem? Oh right, your ass is too clogged up.
This dude does know Nintendo is beating them down right?
Maybe, maybe not. But it is his job, right ?
... there's no doubt Microsoft had the best showing at E3. Sony doesnt really have an interesting line-up for this fall/winter, and Nintendo has been slacking off for many many years now, starting with the N64 and later the Cube, and now the Wii. Hopefully, Sony will have a good showing at the TGS, and TBH I have pretty much given up hope on Nintendo. They just cater to a completely different market right now. One which I'm personally not very interested in.
They had the best showing...BUT, that really didn't mean much. All three showings sucked, MS's just sucked the least
So you mean that MS lineup of: - TooHuman - Banjo Kazoie nuts and bolts - Fable 2 - Gears 2 Beats sonys lineup of: - Resistance 2 - Killzone 2 - Littlebigplanet - Socom: Confrontation - Afrika - Home - Motorstorm 2 ...?
Why conveniently limit it to this "fall/winter" when 2009 is only 5 months away? There's Infamous, Killzone 2, White Knight Chronicles, and God of War III to name a few. Plus all the new PSP and PSN offerings. Resistance Retribution, Stardust Portable, Fat Princess, Pixeljunk Eden, SOCOM, Little Big Planet, to name a few. Plus more that I cant even remember right now. MS's biggest announcement was FFXIII. For the last time, yes it's great for 360 owners to be able to enjoy such a game. It's great for MS. It's great for gamers in general. But Please... stop acting as if MS "won" E3 because of it. If anybody remotely tries to call themself a "true" gamer and cant admit that one out of all those games are interesting. Then no, you're not a true gamer. And yes I know Gears of War 2 is looking amazing. Matter of fact I was thrilled by the new gameplay demo.
360Fanatics must be smoking this strange weed as well as MS. How the hell did microsoft have a great e3, ff? gears? lol is that all. Sony are closing the gap, and come christmas time, sony's hammer is gonna come down. Sony won E3 By Miles.
Microsoft's pr's are better then Sony's at least
