Why subsist on cut and dry news updates? GamePro has their sarcasm gun cocked, locked and ready to unload on Microsoft's press conference announcements.
Well some stuff was right though, but ''. I probably wouldn't have given the game a second look, but now I'll be frantically refreshing the game's site for the next few weeks.'' for COD4...what where they sleeping under a rock ? And also PGR4...its was just annouced.
I don't care what gamepro says for any system...gamepro sucks.
and people still think thers was the best. WTF????
this is 10 days old
I'm not exactly sure what they are saying went wrong, I think overall in general they are trying to say M$ kind of sorta "played it safe" at least thats how they summed it up in their last paragraph which said:
"Microsoft has presented a middle-of-the-road press conference that serves as a lithmus test for the other two console manufacturers. A few nice announcements and decent demos, but nothing Earth-shattering."
I think they have a point only because M$ focused almost entirely on their 2007 line-up. As I said before I think it was good and bad, I particularly don't like to hear mostly about games that are coming in the future, its good to see great looking games that are just around the corner but of course its always good to hear 1 or 2 big announcements for the future, but overall I thought it was a solid presentation but not "earth shattering" (Gamepro's words) either. I liked Sony's presentation a little more, mostly because they haven't shown much in my opinion prior to E3 but I didn't think there was anything "earth shattering" about their presentation either. I'm not really interested in the Wii so really I won't comment on their presentation. BTW, Gamepro did do a "What went wrong?" article on the Nintendo and Sony's presentation too.
Nothing, as far as I could see.
M$ came out and did what they had to do. There was no flair or much excitement but, that's the new E3.
Sony's showing was a little better only because I think there's so many PS3 fans waiting for something new and Sony delivered.
Honestly, I felt myself nodding off and skipping ahead during the video of Nintendo's show. Half of it must have been Reggie talking stats and showing pie charts =/
To be fair though, Nintendo went from being the market leader in decades past to eventually being relegated to last place. With all they've accomplished recently they deserve the right to showboat just a little bit.
It's sarcasm, not God talking to Microsoft.
Ms didn't dazzel everybody with tons of future games everybody wanted MS to destroy the competition(myself included). Oh well!.
lol I just spent the last hour watching E3 trailers; i'm more excited now! than ever before. The sales this Xmas will tell a different story than the upset media is. MS has plenty of time to show off games in upcomming game shows.
MS has plenty of games in development that havn't been talked about for ages, no doubt the 2008 line-up will be more impressive than this years .
#3 Yes they do!; huge games are comming out this year.
* Ace Combat
* COD 4
* Blue Dragon
* GTA4 upgradable version
* Lost Oddyssy
* Fuel of War
* Halo 3
* Mass Effect
* Bio Shock
to name off some popular games that will sale this Xmas.
Sony's E3 talked about games we already know are comming now and next year if MS talked about games now "and" next year! MS would have destroyed Sony, these are games that are known!; mind you.
So what if MS didn't talk about games like
* Alan Wake
* Kingdon under fire
* Ninja Gainden 2(maybe TGS)
-well you know what i'm getting at. Yes MS didn't talk about games almost 2 years down the road they felt they didn't have to as Sony did, thats the only was Sony is staying alive they had to mention games you'll be waiting for untill next Christmas lol.
they both have exclusive content, thats already been announced, the diffrence is that ms had to pay 50 mill for theres and sony didnt have to bribe
... i think Killzone 2 was the much anticipated game so... it took all the glory after it was demoed. MS did what they had to do... show-cased 2007 games which most of the people already knew about. only if Halo 3's video was more attractive because that was only one i was interested to know about.
honestly I dont give a damn about E3 now, I am just waiting for Mass Effect and other great games.
GTA5 up gradable version? thats a joke GTA5 will come in 5-6 years from now on the next generation of consoles, maybe next gta game using GTA4 tech is set in Japan or in someplace where it snows
Thanks i think?.
" GTA4 tech is set in Japan or in someplace where it snows"
a simple reminder of the typo would have been fine now its alot worse than the typo itself. What does that even mean?.
#4 you act Surprise!.
Ironically I actually praised some of those titles, and it's not exactly like Chewbacca showing off a slightly smaller PSP wasn't an awkward silence but I still think colors and strategically placed geometric shapes
What the hell?
Microsoft had an amazing conference:
SCENE IT announce
"The big red button"
Blue Dragon Demo
Ace Combat Demo
Halo 3 Xbox 360
Xbox 360 Elite Announced for Europe
Xbox Elite Priced for Europe
I hope they were messing about ¬¬
Nothing went wrong. It was unexciting, but that can't be considered "going wrong". They just didn't have anything really mind blowing to demonstrate. Otherwise it was very well presented.
First "6 reasons that Xbox360 is in trouble" and now this? Shouldn't they write about other consoles like Wii and PS3?
Also, if I remember correctly, it was Nintendo's confrence that was considered by many a true letdown, being nominated for most "Disappointing" category in both GameTrailers and IGN lists.
this article is almost two weeks old. MS did nothing "wrong" at their press conference, except for putting Jeff Bell out there. I just think people were expecting so much, and when MS focused only on this year's games it came across as a letdown. No big woop.
For me, there simply wasn't enough Halo 3 footage/coverage.
When people go out to buy Halo3 and stick it into their refurbished machine which by the should be called the The Vacuum Hoover Box they are going to be so dissapointed hence its going to be the same thing over and over, the gameplay is going to be the same as Halo2, you watch give it 3 days after release and hear people say "its alright, nothing I've never played before." Unlike Lair or Heavenly Sword or Drake Uncharted Island etc. these are all diverse interesting games. Coming September thru November the owners of the PS3 are going to have to buckle up because its going to be ride they will never forget.
Your retarded fanboy opinions are not needed here, thanks.
it looks like someone has been sick on the halo xbox, oh and i just wanted 2 add this:
YOU STUPID MICROSHAFT SEXBOX 3FIXME FANBOYS R ALL [email protected] sorry, that was just an example of what the majority of the two-year olds on this website sound like, oh and microshaft (erm, i mean soft) didnt have a bad presentation, it just wasnt as good as the other two
Sony will crush Microsoft because all they have focused on is ENTERTAINMENT PRODUCTS you XBOX fools don't even know how powerful Sony is-- their strategy-- their top notch engineering-- their connections with the most influential people in the world and we're talking about Europe and Asia and Australia and the U.K the list goes on and on-- did you XBOX fans really think that the PS3 was going down the drain --you guys dont't know whats going to happen this Holiday Season its going to be the BEST CHRISTMAS EVER because SONY has something up their sleeve. This is definately the calm before the storm. I feel sorry for all you XBOX people when your machine actually dies right on Christmas EVE while your playing that supposedly really really long overheating game -I guess you get the picture.
I get the picture - you're an idiot.
You come out with some real pathetic comments Chava - "no he's not, u r", what are you, 6 years old?
i think the MS conference was not that bad but Sonys has been better. nintendo did zero to amaze me!
xbox 360 is gay
what didnt, moore dancin around like a weirdo and more demonstration of the fact that 360s explode all the time
I think sony won e3 microsoft came in second and nintendo came in third.
---Scrapped Jeff Bell.
---Had Bioware come on stage and play Mass Effect (like the 10 min video that's now all over the internet)
---Showed some of the 2008 games: Alan Wake, Fable 2, Too Human.
---had Frankie play through the first level of Halo 3 like he did behind closed doors.
It wasn't a disaster. It's just a little disappointing thinking about how good it could have been, versus how OK actually was. They should have focused on *exclusives*, regardless of release date... I mean -- showing off Madden 2008? -- Come on!
The inexperience of a company is shown thru CEO'S leaving and selling stock. The fact that they truly blew at E3 all the CEO's are freaking out on all the losses - billions of dollars lost. Whew thats embarassing - extending the warranty to three years instead of a recall - poor consumers -- their is so much stress and anxiety at the XBOX HQ that I could just see it now everyone at work pretending to work and definately want to get paid -- their all walking on egg shells. XBOX thought it was that easy to be ahead in the gaming industry --lets make a new gaming machine out of paper mache` and just release it its that easy -- boy what brains within a company that doesn't know if their coming or GOING TO EA SPORTS.
gamepro sucks balls nothing went wrong except thier opinion
This site is a joke. Do you stupidfaggots even realize what this is? Kids f*cking google games and look on Kotaku, Joystiq, and Destructoid to see what they can find and then post it on this site?
It's infested with backwaterfaggots like MK_Red and Xeoset who f*cking cry and complain about someone posting a naughty link in relation to their system of favor like someone reminded them about the fat chick the slept with at a kegger; they just dont wanna hear about it because it hurts bad in the pants.
Get a sense of f*cking humor you stupid cuntgrease gooks.
Here maybe this will cheer you f*cktards up http://goatse.cz/
I'm out, later chinks.
I had just finished eating pizza before viewing that pic and literally gagged and thought I was gonna puke it all back up.
That was easily one of the most disgusting things I have ever seen!
That said, Ima hafta email it to all my friends now. Just wish I could be there to see the looks on their faces when they open that one up! HEH!
It's a laugh, innit? =)
