Source: E3 360 conference “locked down tighter than nuclear go codes”

VG247: Speaking to VG247 ahead of Microsoft’s E3 conferences tonight and tomorrow, insiders are pointing towards big surprises and leak paranoia.

The story is too old to be commented.

Microsoft doesnt want people to know what Natal really is.
I can smell their fear.

Nike2689d ago (Edited 2689d ago )

I'm almost afraid to ask, as the simple gatekeeper of newsflow on N4G tonight, but...

What?

Edit: Uh, okay then.

(Awkward silence)

What does love smell like? :D

FangBlade2689d ago (Edited 2689d ago )

Lol I was just joking.

Bluemaster772689d ago

Fang blade ..... just lay it to rest man

Convas2689d ago (Edited 2689d ago )

LOL, Fangblade, thank you for the laugh. Microsoft is cowering in fear of ... Killzone 3?

What a simpleton. Better not see you around saying you're not a fanboy.

Anorexorcist2689d ago (Edited 2689d ago )

A lot of the MS sycophant fanboys around here would rather defend the honor of their favorite gaming console (and so they did with HD-DVD before that finally was laid to rest) to the death than their own mothers. And that translates to a lot of bad-mouthing and ganging up and "debubbling" of people around here.

If they ever see you on the street, they'll squirt some Clearasil in your eyes, kick you in the nuts, run back to the house, and THEN continue to talk sh*t from the comfort of their computer monitor.

Edit: Uh Oh, I guess I'm now the Whistle Blower. Watch them start an agenda against me now. Be gentle kids.

Aquanox2689d ago

Just take a look @ news. Is anyone talking or getting excited about Move these days? The reason people is not is, as hard as it might sound, it's essentially a Wii in HD, without Nintendo's Charm for the casuals.

On the other hand, Microsoft is betting high on Natal and probably an xbox 360 rebrand and redesign. Surprise factor is a major plus in these kind of announcements and MS has all the eyes on them, it's the perfect time to take advantage of it.

Convas2689d ago (Edited 2689d ago )

Yet if I go into any Killzone 3 thread and say that it looks like Killzone 2, that it'll never be what Halo is, and then cleverly pull the comment and stealth edit in "I kid, I kid", you mean to tell me that "Sony sycophant fanboys" won't do the same damn thing?

You hypocrite. Fanboys do stupid things, on both sides. But you can continue to pretend that they only exist on the other side right? See no evil, hear no evil, that sort of thing?

They are so scared that they will air it on MTV, Time Square, Spike TV, Nick at Nite, mtvU, MTV Hits, and Logo

HighDefinition2689d ago (Edited 2689d ago )

Just because they have "faith" in their product doesn`t mean gamers will. Also, what do you expect them to do. They`ve gone to far with this "NATAL IS THE FUTURE" they can`t really turn back. All the speculation will end soon don`t worry. At this point all they`ve shown is ALOT of red balls, so I wouldn`t get to excited, yet anyways.

deadreckoning6662689d ago (Edited 2689d ago )

I'm so excited for all the press conferences...but I have to admit, Microsoft has me the most excited for the simple fact that I have no idea what to expect from them. They should have their conference locked down tight..heck, everyone should have their conference locked down tight to preserve the shock value.

@N4PS3G- Bubbles +

@Omega4 and N4PS3Fanboys- I agree. With this much publicity, there HAS to be something HUGE. Much bigger than Natal even.

Inside_out2689d ago

M$ really knows how to throw a party...What the heck are they gonna show??? Times Square...Spike...MTV...that must of cost a fortune...

Omega42689d ago

The E3 conference won't be on Natal that much so i doubt it will be about that.

MS has something MASSIVE coming, they wouldn't be showing it in Time Square otherwise.

siyrobbo2689d ago

best not to get yourself too hyped up. i expect nothing from the conference. that way if its rubbish i wont be pi$$ed off, and if its amazing megaton i'll be even happier

trancefreak2689d ago

When is the natal press conference sunday or monday night pst? And was it going to be broadcasted or closed door.

Omega62689d ago

lmao. Microsoft throws all hype and no substance.

N4PS3Fanboys2689d ago

Then why is the Natal conference airing on every MTV owned network on television?

jack_burt0n2689d ago

Microsoft owns a chunk of viacom shares?

Bigpappy2689d ago

Relax kids. If there are hiding sometime. it will soon be revealed to all and Natal will truly fail like you have been predicting.

I, on the other hand, am very excited to see what M$ has been able to achieve over the past year. Judging from the red ball game, they have been working on all aspects on Natal. I expect the hate to continue after all the new demo's and what not, it is what you guy were born to do. I expect all your new hate statements to start with the word "But". M$ will show some impressive tech with this thing, no doubt about that.

R2D22689d ago

I am glad that MS is so secretive about NATAL because it has me on the tip of my toes.

Also I am glad that MS choose to demo the redeball game cause it a very fast game and in required you whole body to play - if MS can master the redball game to the T then the other games should just be with minnimal lag.

BrutallyBlunt2689d ago

God, can't the teenagers just cool it for a few days? We can expect great things from Nintendo, Microsoft and Sony. If there was one time to put down the fanboy banner now is it.

This is the time to be excited for what's to come. Not Natal will flop or Move is a Wii HD or Nintendo only caters to non-gamers. The pessimists need to shut-up and put their keyboards away for a few days and relax. It's time for gamers to rejoice and be excited for games on all platforms, not some teenager who's never had a date in his life and the closet thing he has to romance is when his system warms up.

Obviously they want to maintain the shock factor of their announcements

Hellsvacancy2689d ago

“locked down tighter than nuclear go codes” thats pathetic

1. its a bloody game convention
2. its bloody Microsoft

Bnet3432689d ago

Don't take things so literal next time.

MajestieBeast2689d ago

They wanna filter out all the BAM moments before it airs and there will be allot of em.

HarryM2688d ago
