After last year’s string of pre-E3 leaks left more or less no surprises for the actual platform holder conferences, there’s an increasing belief that Microsoft has something big up its sleeve for tomorrow’s official E3 press briefing.
No. Oh and I see what you did with that question mark, I've been warned about this before.
They'll probably make Agent and or Versus XIII, multiplatform and call it a day. (We all know they don't have any exclusives other than Project Natal, crackdown 1.5, and Halo Milk) Then IGN and other biased websites will say M$ stole the show so I wouldn't doubt it.
Halo Milk made me lol Sad but true, Sony have all the good exclusives imho
For my next Photoshop project!
Why not? They done stole everything else this generation?
If Microsoft pushed Capcom to hurry and bring Monster Hunter Frontier over they may have something. Keyword is may...Then again it'd also be on PC.
Microsoft has the Western media on its side, so in the media's eyes, sure, it'll steal the show just like it has "stolen" the show for the past 3 E3s (according to the media). However, Microsoft has shown off fewer and fewer exclusives at E3 as the years pass. Think about last year: 2/3rds of the games they showed were multiplatform. Whereas both Nintendo and Sony keep showing off new things that I get excited about.
"E3 2010: Microsoft to Steal the Show?" Yes thats what I think.
How can they still the show? How can anyone steal the show? seriously its no one show to steal...
Troll like the cold wind.
It's a good thing the show isn't less than 24 hours away so we could just wait. Now we have days and days to speculate instead. OHWAIT... By the time I wake up tomorrow everyone will be able to definitively know whether E3 sucked or not for Microsoft, and in 2 days for everyone else. Why not just wait?
It doesn't matter what you, I, we or the media thinks about what company might have the best presentation at E3. Why? If memory serves me correct didn't more publications than not say MS had a better showing then Sony or Nintendo last year? How was 09 for games on the 360 compared to the competition? Remember to be honest, not only when posting your opinion on here but most of all be honest to yourself. 09 IMHO was the worst year for games on the 360 since it was released on the market. So does it really matter who has the most glitz and glamour with famous people on parade or are we gamers? To the trolls and fanboys the answer is obvious. To true gamers is all about the games. I have said this before and I will say it again before E3 starts. The 360's target audience is hardcore male gamers from teens to adults. Natal, no matter how much some people on here want to pretend they are excited about it, isn't geared towards the hardcore but the casual market. I honestly can't understand how people think MS will out do Sony when they have next to no studio support compared to Sony 20+ in house and nearly a dozen exclusive support from devs like Sucker Punch, Quantic Dreams, etc.. Oh and before anyone assumes I am a troll I will put my 360 gamerscore, amount of 360 games played, owned, and multiple (5) 360's units I have in my home up against any member here and I guarantee I will be in the top 95% if not higher. And I will add one last thing. If you 360 faithful were truly gamers you would demand MS give you more studio support vs spending a fortune on timed exclusives, DLC and over the top marketing campaigns.
@"I honestly can't understand how people think MS will out do Sony when they have next to no studio support compared to Sony 20+ in house and nearly a dozen exclusive support from devs like Sucker Punch, Quantic Dreams, etc.. " Microsoft focuses on the second party. Rather than buying studios they buy games. It's just a different investment strategy. Even sony has had dry years despite owning so many studios. The one thing M$ should do that sony does well is concentrating it's first party on advancing the tech used on the system.
would like to have a long discussion in the back room with you.
I hope so, because everything else seems pretty bad right now in my opinion and I'm not excited at all with what is out right now and what we know, hopefully there's plenty of shockers when I watch tomorrow.
XD lol...oh god my sides are aching!
steal some exclusives maybe $$$
Anyone remember last year? You know similar articles... what happend nothing? Don't get hyped and disappoint, get real and be surprised.
Sony's show was in no way a lot better than MS's show. I would give them both a B+. I feel like a lot of people are pretending that Sony's show was a lot better when not at all. MS had a very strong showing. @below: Mass Effect 2, Crackdown 2, revamped Conviction, Alan Wake, Forza 3, L4D2 to name a few. Like I was saying...quit pretending.
Yeah, if you like the Beatles. *Snicker* *Snicker*
Mass Effect 2, Alan Wake came out this year Crackdown 2 isn't out yet L4D2 was also out and better on PC. So Forza 3 was the only reason to be excited for your 360 in '09 if you didn't own a high end PC. I'm absolutely petrified Microsoft will show great games for my 360, I'm scared Sony will show games for my PS3. I wasn't excited for L4D2 owning L4D1. Mass Effect 2 skipped my attnetion but I'm getting Mass Effect soon and then Mass Effect 2. Crackdown isn't my thing nor is Forza. I'm in such a state aren't it? I mean putting forward a rational arguement asking people not to hype up E3... I've heard people say it'll change the face of gaming and be serious. It's E3, just like last years and the years before that. Nothing special... not a thing.
Yeah because you say so /s I have a 360 and was excited for everything on that list as other 360 owners too. LMAO. Damn its great to see you guys in this state before E3 :D
ms has already had the bigg goty canadite in other then reach witch might actaully get it based on sales. other then multis and sequals and the lard to ship with natal they dont have any big killers in the wings
Last year was great, I was impressed with their showings last year.
Sony is the one with 21 first party studios not M$.
With out a doubt. A lot of the other offerings from the other companies will be ignored hence the reason one of the two competitors felt the need to announce so much of their offerings before E3 simply to remind people they will be at E3 too. If 360 slim is announced and the rumors of Microsoft's lineup being so packed with content that Microsoft had to tell some Natal developers they had to wait until next year, no one will stand a chance. There are also some of the biggest/ most popular and highest selling franchises the generation being shown at E3 and don't forget about announced games. EDIT Below So says the trolls LOL.
Want to bet, if Microsoft win the show, nothing, if they loose it you don't come back on this site? How about that. Oh good XBOX SLIM... that's what we need from Microsoft a new 360... with no RRoD this time. It's it strange prior to the slim announcement there where picture everywhere, some reports from shops in Thailand and this was months before it's release... if Microsoft is releasing a slim don't you think production and testing might have started by now.
He'll be back either way. You can't keep a good fanboy down.
If the slim is true lets hope they have done testing this time. If and it's a big IF , they get it right with a slim I might be tempted to buy one but I'll wait and see first.
@^ I know I will never buy a 360 again.I already bought a Shi#ton of em...
Yeah I know the feeling mate and even if there is a slim coming out I wont touch it for at 6 months and even then after 4 360's I'll more than likely get a second PS3 for the bedroom instead of living in fear of another round with 360 hardware.
We 've already seen last year than even with nothing (or close) against sony exclusives, functionalities, dumb fans and paid medias claimed "ms steal the show" you can't beat stupidity ;)
This is N4G.com... there is no way MS has anything good to tell or show.....
Lol ... So true Sad thing is no matter what they show or how many journalist say MS had the best showing, the trolls on this site will still say PS had the best showing at E3 just as nthe last 3 years.
it's the contrary, blind fans like you prefer to ignore facts, games, real things, and prefer to read "kotaku" "edge" or others well known ms agents downplaying sony's real things, and "upplaying" little ms thing and "smoke" from the show (beatles, spielberg, and all real gamers don't care) candyshop "Why would I work for MS lol? Are you implying because I prefer MS I must work for them? " nobody can "prefer ms" without working for them :) (you can like some of the games, playing with others friends without money/ps3...but ps3 has all xbox has + much more)
i thought the last e3s everybody always said MS won. im sorry but ms shows be mainly multiplat games its kind of hard to be like theyre really trying. as xbox fans souldnt we want more cause even when they do wrong, dont care, or do nothing most xbox fan dont let they voice be herd. i criticize everything if its not looking rite and get say something when you do something wrong. o yea whos that chic in the pic
they dont have anything to show, halo gears halo gears each year. they will just fill the conference with natal
I think they'll have quite a few games to show for Natal but they'll be mainly casual games. It's the core games that I'll be interested in but I have nothing so far too be interested in when it comes to Natal. A 360 slim would certainly interest me though as long as it's cool, quiet and reliable that is.
You know this because.............oh yes...silly me...this is N4G.COM
nothing + nothing = nothing
in my life on N4G - I can see the front pages of N4G plasterd with NATAL news after E3. This place is going to go nutz with trolls - best start stocking up on the multiple accounts guys cause 3-4 bubbles wont be enough after E3.
Honestly, what could MS possibly steal the show with? just name one thing...... (funny how nothing comes to mind)
ff versus 13 Edit: Disaster? The only thing Square Enix needs to worry about is the sales, and FF13 sold very well, so there was no "disaster." And anyway, I was just answering your question of what could MS possibly steal and FF Versus 13 is a plausible answer.
lmao.... I think Squenix learned their lesson with the disaster FF13 turned out to be after it went multiplat. keep trying EDIT: FF 13 sold wayyyyyyy more on PS3. Furthermore. As a game, FF13 was perceived as a disappointment by the critics. This will be a disaster for the next multiplat FF (if there ever is one) because people will be hesitant to buy the game after FF13. I repeat..KEEP TRYING.
So how is FF 13 Versus at Microsoft's conference going to steal FF 13 Versus's lighting at Sony's conference? Shouldn't it just be tied then? LOL.
didnt you know, MS allegedly won the e3 they announced ff13 as multiplat... Won because of a multiplat...lol, i mean, nobody knew how the game would turn out however many years later but it was teh megaton...lol...same thing with metal gear rising...lol The western media huh @R2D2 below MS buying a studio or two WOULD be megaton but they'll prolly settle for some good ol timed DLC
Half Life EP 3 would also start some noise or maybe MS buys Insomnaic.
Whats to steal when Sony already gave it away? All MS has to do is keep running touch down plays now. edit: Both teams have had fumbles but now it time for the superbowl. That KZ3 play put some points on the board for your team but now that we have the ball were not giving it back.
Touchdown plays? For the past year since last E3, it's been nothing but fumble after fumble after fumble...
You work for Microsoft? @below: I say that because you seem to think that you're a part of Microsoft or something and that their success will somehow mean something important to you personally. I mean, I understand your openly blatant fanboy love for Microsoft, but your analogy just seemed like you were personally invested in their success.
Well I don't see you going around criticizing or calling out fans of playstation either. Just because I'm excited for MS (360)and E3 shouldn't lead to you judging me like an insecure child. This is N4G and I have every right to shed my opinion just like you or anybody else here? Do you work for Sony? Why does it bother you so much that I like MS(360)? To me that's being a blatant fanboy because you can't respect what others say and try and write them off as non credible. Maybe I have my reasons for being excited which I'm sorry have nothing to do with you. Anyways my analogy was joking around and yet you take it offensively lol. There is an ignore option for people like you to press if comments like the one I left bothers you. edit: And you must of never read my comment either as of late! It's sickening how immature some of you people can act on this site. You sound like you have some ego issues. Welcome to my ignore list as well douche.
***Well I don't see you going around criticizing or calling out fans of playstation either.*** 1. You obviously haven't looked at my comment history to be able to say something like that. 2. Most people here that are notable fanboys on either side... I have on /ignore. Welcome to the list.
No...Tuesday you have the ball. And until Monday and Tuesday were all just placing bets. I got fifty on MS! edit: Why would I work for MS lol? Are you implying because I prefer MS I must work for them?
"we" means you and them....
It looks to me like they're riding on Natal maybe a bit too much. Kinda reminds me of when the PS3 came out. Every E3 afterwards had a big emphasis on PS3 (obviously) and a slight mention on what's to come for PS2. All I've been hearing is news about Natal being the big thing at the conference, with slight mentions on what's to come for the hardcore. I'm not talking about multiplatforms, I'm talking about exclusives. I would hope they have something to show, but as of right now, we already know what their big games are. Halo: Reach will be there, Gears 3 will show up and some notes on Fable 3. Maybe I'm expecting something different, but MS's pattern hasn't been to show exciting new exclusives. They show what will sell and bring out some multiplatform titles. Whether or not it can "steal" the show is up to whoever really cares.
and thats one of the reason i think MS dont really care about gaming. every company is about money but when you look at them since 360 came with the things they been doing and not doing it start looking a little suspect.
lets face it if MS just shows a tattoo on there arm they will win the show, does not matter how much Nintendo or Sony show, after all E3 is American and Americans think of the 360 as American even though 99% of the parts are Japanese.
Actually Chinese. The factories have been causing high suicide rates too.
Already in damage control ?? LMAO You sound so butthurt and there hasnt even started O_o
I believe that's what your 360 fans are doing right now, in all PS3 articles. Check the mirror before you talk.
im sure they will "steal" the show as in exclusives, microsoft should come up with new ideas like how sony can create new franchises that will be successfull its a gamble but theres gotta be well invested risks to take.
Anything is possible.
The media is starting to wave their Microsoft pom-poms.
And E3 hasn't even started. I want to see new IP's from them. Because their lack of willingness to innovate software is bugging me.
All the comments from the controlled Natal environment will be 'cool' 'awesome' 'amazing' 'fun' 'groundbreaking,' you just won't hear what people really think. The naysayers won't have a voice, and MS will make sure of it.
Can’t wait to see what they got…
better than that?......how hard would it be to come up with something more than a demonstration of someone hitting a rubber ball?
But Microsoft and 360 gamers don't really care to try harder. If it were me, I would definately want Microsoft to try a little harder. But that's just my opinion. Unfortunately, my opinion doesn't matter. Only 360 gamers' opinions matter. And their opinion is that they're willing to settle for less.
2 people hitting a big red ball? :P
We'll see the INSIDE of an avatar's shoe.
