Xbox Evolved: "Tomorrow is definitely a big day for Microsoft and Xbox. What does Microsoft have in store? Aaron Greenberg seems to know. "
I can hardly wait. I just really wanna see what Natal games are shown
I don't think there to worried about Mag or proving Live is better. Should be interesting to see what they have in store for gamers.
@ 1.1 Yeah, because we all know that more players equals a better game. /s Why should developers do it just to prove something? If it doesn't result in a more enjoyable game, why do it? There are PC games that network thousands of players together on the same server, but that doesn't automatically make them more enjoyable games.
@shadow Flare. It's funny that you would care about what people spend their money on. Don't worry your little head sweetie. Is it because you can't afford the fee that you want to hate on it? In the words of Jay-z "what you eat don't make me $hit". As for 256 players making the PSN service better, not correct. I play MAG and Bioshock's online is way more fun and it's done with way less players. Make sure to keep your eyes and ears open for 2morrow. Wouldn't want you to run out of material funny man. Now on to paying to play. Sure it would nice for live to be free but it is not. Now let's take your example COD. It's free to play on PSN and you have to pay for live. Last time I checked the competition is harder on live and the community is bigger on live. When you get older and are allowed in clubs you will understand. Some clubs are free to get into and some you will have to pay to get in. That's just life. It's all about the crowed in each area. If you like the one better in the club that has a cover charge guess which one you're going to go to. Easy to understand? I knew it would be.
Clearly 360 gamers don't care....so you do whyyy?
LOL... "Clearly 360 gamers don't care....so you do whyyy? " Why do we always get ugly trolls like shadowflare in every 360 article diverting the discussion into some kind of console war, when the majority don't care. Shadowflare please go away!!! Go play your PS3 or MAG instead of trying to convince others too. Let Sony do their job and I'm sure they will ask for volunteers if they needed you.
jealousy.. that's all
I'm sure anyone looking at your comment history then mine would completely disagree with your slanderous statement.
If they announce LP2 and DR2 is going to be timed exclusive, then it's a megapawnage!
i wonder what they got? hopefully its something new.
He must be excited about what they show.
I'm looking forward to this event. I can't wait to see more from Halo Reach and Splinter Cell Conviction, to name a few.
but now that I have a 360, I'm eager for the future (I actually love how Reach is looking). Number one though, although it's probably not the most agreeable, is an AWESOME Perfect Dark Sequel...Rare doesn't seem to have the magic though...So, who knows...But I think anyone can agree it's not a lost cause in the right hands...Sadly, those hands don't appear like Rare's but I'd like to give them the benefit of the doubt. Pressure just might get to them. I enjoyed PD Zero more than most gamers, but only because I am desperate for an update! Hmm, I am also curious about that Warhound game, that was supposed to come out and it looked sweet. Or, Mech Assault 3! Or, Chrome Hounds 2...That'd be sweet too.
Honestly I cannot see any HUGE announcements tomorrow as we are still pretty close to E3. If you think they are gonna release anything HUGE this close to E3 you are in for a huge shock.
Are you interested in the Perfect Dark HD update? I never got into Perfect Dark Zero but loved the original. Perhaps they have a sequel lined up. Its a great series after all. Mech Assault would be pretty sweet.
was leaps and bounds better than any console FPS for it's time, and leagues better than Zero, so yeah, I love that one to death. I guess what really is needed is a sequel to that one (make the new one "Perfect Dark 2" as Zero was a prequel)...I still play PD 1 to this day, in both my original 64 with my cartridge and console (bought that release day!), and with the emulator too (helps AA). I'm excited to get the PD 1 update though too, so yeah, that'll be a good thing to tide things over until PD2 *hopefully* arrives. There were innovations in PD1 that I still haven't seen repeated (like the stealing of weapons via melee and making your opponent temporarily dizzy, or the laptop gun, or the sim personalities, the shooting range challenges, etc...) It ranks in top 3 games of all time for me.
"There are PC games that network thousands of players together on the same server, but that doesn't automatically make them more enjoyable games." Actually, it CAN contribute to making the game more enjoyable. Otherwise, why would they bother? You wouldn't care if MW2 was 2 v. 2 instead of 12 v. 12? That's exactly what you're implying.
-It hasn't made them more enjoyable so far. Frontlines Fuel of War and MAG both have lots of players, but to me they are far less enjoyable than games like Uncharted 2 and Halo 3. Moving back on topic, I am excited to see what they show today. I am not expecting anything huge, but to get some updates on some of my most anticipated games like Alan Wake, Splinter Cell Conviction and Halo Reach would be really nice.-
Halo: Reach gameplay please
Yea, I'm hoping see more of it too. Very interested in that.
I am very skeptical about the Natal stuff. I want to see some fun, unique software. Enough with the talk show me what Natal can do or I will just call you PSeye 1.5. Fable 3 news/gameplay has me interested as well.
I'm mostly interested in Halo Reach gameplay. Would be sick.
seriously all i can hear from u xbugs is halo halo halo got no more games to play? might as well play HALO KITTY eh?haha
I agree but to be fair what else have they seriously got exclusive wise to look forward to now Mass Effect 2 is out? You could list a load of games like Alan Wake and Crackdown 2 but honestly they are not in the same hype league as games like Halo. Wait until E3 though I reckon both MS and Sony will give you something to look forward to..
tomorrow is the season premiere of survivor!! Lets go Russel!
and God of War 3
rofl I'll admit, I lol'd at that.
yep tomorrow we get to see the new God of War footage.
I was thinking the same thing. I'm gonna have that new trailer downloaded in HD as soon as it hits. It'll be on my PC, PS3, and PSP.
OMG!!! he's right about one thing, for once ;-)
...Pac-man Game for 'xBox LAG' er erm 'xBox LIVE'!!! ;-D
*yawn*-- ps3 has less games, ;) only here to state facts/.
so he and gabe will make an appearance?
-Did you guys get lost? You are in the wrong article. It seems you thought you were in a God of War 3 article.-
Are you guys seriously that excited over a trailer for an already announced game?
Why are you excited over footage of Natal? Why are you excited over screen shots of Alan Fail? Why are you excited over footage of Failo:Reach? lol 360 has no games. :)
Don't worry Arid and Blaze, Microsoft will just announce Natal support for Halo... make both of your fantasies come true... lol... and I don't care what Bungie says about Natal not being integrated in Natal... i'm sure MS has the final say there and not Bungie and given that Natal is scheduled for launch same time as Halo I don't really find that coincidence and MS knows the easiest way to make anything they do successful is to slap a Halo sticker on it... so Natal+Halo = Instant success.
ehh, as long as it's optional sure why not.
If its not optional then they could break what potentially could have been a great game. I think its called Halo reach as it was designed for Natal from the beginning that's why its called "reach" . As you reach for your guns :p.
when it comes to MS, i've learned to hold my breathe
Couldn't agree more. MS has a VERY large track record of disappointing and hyping up relatively crappy stuff. I'm not gonna get the least bit exited.
got tired of acting fake huh Suuking?
yea... they hyped the crap out of Haze and lair... look where that got them.
Like the ps3 being 4d. Dual HDMI, 6 USB ports, oh and router functionality. Natal has yet to be released so until it does and you have one in your hands, you cannot judge it, yet. Besides every company over-hypes their products including your beloved sony. It is called . . . marketing!
I hope they show Crackdown 2 they have barely shown anything on that game. So here is hoping we see more of this game tomorrow. I'm also excited to finally see fable 3 I don't really care if it has Natal.
so there ARE others out there.....
Please be some benefit of stopping XBL on the original Xbox,would love to see an increased friends cap or other new features for a premium payed service.
Big people? So I guess you and Gabe Newell are showing up.
Gabe Newell could go up alone and he would still be classified as big people, due to him being plural
LOL! That was a good one!
@Shadow Flare I shot a noodle out of my nose when I read your Gabe comment haha
is Gabe showing up to announce HL:E3 and that its not coming to the PS3...a big implosion on N4G would be guaranteed. Now lets stay focus on the topic. The last part of the code, I think, is Toy Soldier.
While I'm sure any announement concerning HL2 ep3 would be massive I don't think any console gamer should get too hyped given the lack of any quality whatsoever in their console ports to date. L4D1 abd 2 were a travesty compared to the PC game and if you played the PC version first bordered on the unplayable because of the3 disparity and lack of mods and general community support. HL2 in The Orange Box was awful on the PS3(to the poibnt that Gabe apologised for a port his comnpany didn't even make for his least favourite platrorm!)and,imo, the 360 port wqas pre3tty bad too and only avoided such a hiding because the EA effort on PS3 waqs incredibly weak. So, for me, the one company I just won't consider on consoles is Valve right now. Until they show some care and effort in their console ports I'm thinking of their games as just a PC option and think they should either do the ports with the same care and passion they put into their fantastic PC games or just not bother. I feel like they're conning us on 360 right now just because it happens to be a quick and easy process to knock out a bog standard port because of the similar dev tools which makes them easy cash. I just expect themj to have more pride in their products and have felt5 very let down by anything of theirs I've bought or played outside of the PC world lately. The saddest part is that the console popularity of L4D contributed to the quick follow up and prolly held back Ep3 even more! I LOVE Valve and their games but I really don't think they give us quality or value any time we've seen their games appearing on the HD consoles. I know if MS were announcing Ep3 for 360/PC only there would be a massive ruckus but , on current console form, IDK if PS only gamers would be losing out too much and, personally, I'd just rather they get the damn game made properly and get it out on PC where we know we can trust them. That said, after EA went to the trouble of porting TOB to PS3 themselves(meaning the franchise is on the Sony platform)I doubt very much they'd wish to miss out on the sales to what's now a pretty much even sized userbase to the 360-esp not after missing out on ME2 and all the L4D cash they might have been able to make. Hell, they might even get in someone who can code a little this time round! I'm thinking though, that what Greenburg has in store will be more MS specific rather than something like HL-possibly Natal support for a big series or two or a Cliffy appearance ahead of E3?
Splinter Cell Dead Rising 2 Fable 3 Halo Reach Lost Planet 2
That GOW3 trailer is going to steal the show tomorrow.
just stop Heavy Button....open zone or not, that's embarrassing and I'm excited about tomorrow....don't kill that by comments like that
Hmm, I'll go ahead and say Heavy Button is 12-13 years old. Yep, sounds about right.
Dear mods, please do something about the hordes of PS3 fans in every 360 article. God of War 3 will be a good game, but this isn't the place to talk about it.
GOWIII will make heavy buttons go rampage mode tomorrow, new account for a new day of stupidity.
It's not the trailer, but just the fact of being able to see more footage of God of War 3. It's because it is NOT a flop. As much as you guys wanna say it. It's an amazing series and if it were on xbox, you all would say the same thing. Be a gamer for once and see WHY we like it so much. As far as the M$ announcement goes: They are strategically placing this announcement to compete with GOW3. I understand why. I can't wait to see what they have in store for us tomorrow from both systems!
hopfully they will announce a new blockbuster and not a bunch of natal bs. i hate natal its a bunch of bs just like stupid wii.
Just show me one good game for Natal, just one and I'll be happy.
So while MS has their event tomorrow, and Nintendo has their media summit coming soon, Sony has nothing. For the first time in a very long time we dont know what Sony is coming out with for the year. If this is some kind of new strategy, then I dont like it. Anyways, I mostly want to see Halo Reach gameplay, Splinter Cell, new Ghost Recon, and the status on Natal. Im very much looking forward to it.
Sony has GDC, which they are suppose to keynote this year
MS kind of caught them off guard so naturally they start making announcements like GOW3 trailer and Infamous2! Good for gamers I guess but funny to watch. edit below jinx: Sony isn't going out without a good fight so GDC I'm sure will be there spotlight. You gotta admit it's funny to watch. Sony does it all the time to MS and that's even funny. Personally I'm glad gamers are winning for the first time an entire year.
