although i am looking forward to more gears 2 news, i don't think this is the rght place for it. It's bad enough the 3 big studios are gunna be there overshadowing some potential talent of upcoming devs. Why does MSFT have to show potentially big games (ones halo and gears 2) to steal the spotlight from these hard workers :S. I don't think MSFT, Sony, or Ninty should be there to show of their next big blockbusters it just doesn't make sense, its like having a sports competition between kids and 3 professional adult players are entered to compete against them.

I agree with Joe, a quick Google of PAX shows it to be an indie developers affair. There likely won't be any earth shattering announcements. It's probably Penny Arcade Episode 2.

There is your answer.

Yeah, MS is really smart to release a BIG title in a small-time expo(small compared to e3,tgs or gc) /sarcasm

MS always have an ace up their sleeve.

Greysturm3741d ago

People/Fanboys always suppose microsoft/sony has an ace up its sleeve at every gameshow. Last year all we heard after some dissapointing showings was microsoft had an ace up its sleeve and that didnt proove true until e3 in which sony fans started with sony has an ace up its sleeve and now after leipzig since microsoft had zilch to anounce we are back at point 1.

MS: today we would like to be announcing something the we believe increases the excitement on xbox console.... something completely unique to the xbox family. i like to introduce "house". house is something we have been working a long time on. house is a 3d interactive environment were u and other gamers can pretend u all own a ps3 and create ur own space which we creatively called ur "house" and then use ur new cartoon looking avatars and then dress them so that they look like cartoon dolls so that u can walk a round ur "house". this is something we believe is very "innovative", whatever that means, and exclusive to the xbox 36o.

thats what MS will have for surprise. enjoy ur knock off sony apps.

well we know it not something to do with Halo, because MS said they want to have a special event for Bungie next Halo game. So we can rule out Halo "4"

Johnny Cullen3741d ago

I forgot about that.

Another theory seems to have popped in my mind though.

Would it be the Motion Sensor stuff? Yes, I know its been heard millions of times and maybe MS were gonna unveil it at E3 but dropped it along with Halo and decided to put it in somewhere else to surprise us a little at least.

Freckler3741d ago

Hey you might be onto something there.

Blitzed3740d ago

That doesn't fall in line with it being a show for Indie work, but for 2 days?! It has to be something more Tha Penny Arcade 2.
