Kotaku looks at Microsoft's numerous promises from E3 2008 and decides whether or not any of them have amounted to anything.
Yeah netflix (sharing) was pulled out of there,also the rockstar dlc (well it is released) . 1 vs 100 too. Hopefully ill get to see it this year.
hey it's Kotaku. Either way, who cares really, this is so 08
So where do reliable news posts and articles come from?
This is no different from the "article" that Microsoft paid various web sites to publish regarding the relative processing power of the PS3 and 360. The sad part is that despite the fact that this ad masqeurading as an article hits (literally!) every marketing note that Microsoft wanted, from DLC to Avatars, it will not save the dwindling sales of the 360. Despite being $199 price point, the 360 is struggling to significantly outsell the $399 PS3 and it continues to be trampled by the $249 Wii. Microsoft needs to go back to the drawing board.
^^E3 itself was an ad. That's what E3 is for, to talk up the big things in gaming and draw interest. This is a recap which of course restates that information. Wii and PS3 are due to get the same treatment. If it's an 'ad' as you say everyone will get their time in the limelight.
In fact, here is Nintendo: http://www.n4g.com/NewsCom-...
Don't care if it ever comes out,what I do care for though is Alan Wakes PC/360 release date!
Would be nice if they would give a bit more info as to what windows 7 will bring for gamers at this years E3.
I'm looking forward to the Sony and Nintendo ones.
Microsoft came far closer to living up to all of its promises than I expected. As a gamer on all three current Gen consoles I hope the 360's competition does the same.
Not bad. They've been pretty good this whole gen with information like that. Other than Gears 1 and a few other early titles getting pushed back they've released about when they've said.
This E3 MSFT is going to surprise many.
hope they do this year as well
