@andrewpfister: BTW, the official slogan for this year's E3, as determined by our panel of experts at the bar last night: "Eh, it's not for you."

Now if we could have a kinect game where we can use chainsaws.... awesome.

Can someone explain to me what this event was? Was it just an unveiling of the name? Because there is a "Project Natal" conference Tuesday according to the schedule: http://www.e3expo.com/

Notice how it's right after Sony's conference. Purposely done?

Edit: Wait a minute, wait a minute, THAT was it? That's what is showing Tuesday?? No way! Did I miss something here? Where there ANY hardcore games? Are you guys sure this was the actual conference for Kinect??

@Marius

Wow, I'm totally shocked! Where's the crap from Bethesda?? Criterion? I'm so disappointed :O

LordMarius2623d ago (Edited 2623d ago )

Thats the event that just happened right now, it will just be shown on Tuesday,

and yes it was purposely done...i think

Speaking of Twitter:

Edit: Yes Alpha-Male this is what you will see on Tuesday, no hardcore games(maybe tmrw at the press conference)

ozhuerta2623d ago

I wonder about that real elephant o.O
Will it be there on tuesday?

logikil2623d ago

From other sites, the Tuesday event is supposed to be the same event except opened to a wider audience of 3000 or something along those lines. So far from the twitter feeds, Cliffy seemed at least amused, as did Felicia Day. Stephen Totilo though it was okay, but lots of me-to type games. The me-to games would have to be expected though, as a means to get people eased into the tech, but it really would have been nice to hear about something else besides Star Wars to be excited about. And no one has really talked yet about how the games actually looked which is intriguing to me.

jack_burt0n2623d ago

yeah during the sony conference is them airing the jungle party but u dont seem to believe me.

-Alpha2623d ago (Edited 2623d ago )

That's because you never explained or gave me reasons. Sorry if it seemed like I was just being stubborn, but I did not understand what you were saying, and now I'm totally confused and a little dumbfounded. I was expecting to hear so much more.

@logikil

So there's another event Tuesday that's Live?? Or is it just a pre-recording??

van-essa2623d ago

It's the official announcement of Kinect, nothing more. Microsoft's E3 press conference is tomorrow, Monday 14th at 6pm GMT.

@Alpha

This may be off topic, but I'm drunk and may not have read the article very well.

First of all, I'd like to thank you for your opinions over the past couple months about the new developments coming from both microsoft and sony. This is my 1st post at N4G, but I've been a follower for a long time. You seem to be someone willing to see both good/bad points of both machines.

I sincerely wish that all of the articles about the new motion control would be denied. Until both products are shown fully (at E3 or otherwise) there are no certain facts about either.

IMO I hope the natal (or whatever the new name is) shows games relevant to the non-casual gamer. If not, I can't see myself buying it, no matter what the price is. But the same is with the move.

Until anything "real" is shown about these "new consoles" are shown, I will remain skeptical about hardcore motion control.

P.S. I love some wii games, so I am trying to keep an open mind about both systems

@Alpha: From http://www.xbox.com/en-US/c...

"If all this seems hard to picture, you can experience the event yourself in a 30-minute, commercial-free special broadcast on MTV on Tuesday, June 15, 2010 at 3:30 pm ET, and on Nick at Nite, mtvU, MTV Hits, and Logo at 9 pm ET."

I think it's just a re-airing of the event.

===
Edit: Yeah, just the two live events. So we've got tomorrow and that's it for Microsoft. They list all of the E3 events from here: http://www.xbox.com/en-US/c...

===
Edit 2: As far as the event, read what people have been typing. It wasn't for me, but Microsoft still has the opportunity to mention third-party titles tomorrow at their 360 conference. This event seemed pretty much just a way for advertising the rebranding and release of Kinect to the public in a big way.

Lol..Gaf is awesome. From what Ive been following from a couple of live blogs, not necessarily too exciting although the star wars game was pretty cool. can't wait to see vids.

crapgamer2623d ago (Edited 2623d ago )

He usually has a solid perspective on what's what and I think the fact he praised it, even though they showed casual games was a good sign. I don't see why people are hating on Cliffy B? Dudes like a cross between a rockstar and CEO. I dig his games and his input. I mean what do people want? Everyone is saying this thing was cool, nobody getting paid to do so.

*Edit* I think Microsoft wouldn't have had a choice in the matter. Every single person said positive things about it. I think that says something nice about the product and what it's supposed to do.

On a side note, I see the POS3 Fangirls are out in force trying to hurt the MS machine! Wont happen though, the show looked tight and I'm even more excited then I was yesterday! Good stuff, twitter and all the people tweeting about the show have pretty much quelled any fears I had about how awesome Kinect was going to be.

PS360PCROCKS2623d ago

Um, you really think they would invite Cliffy B and let him walk out and say "that sucked, how stupid"

logikil2623d ago

Why not? He isn't an MS employee, and they invited other folks that weren't blown away by it. CheapyD didn't seem all that interested and wasn't afraid to blog about it. Epic games gave MS pretty much its second biggest game this gen, you think they are just going to toss Cliffy and his crew out the door if he happens to say he doesn't dig on Natal/Kinect?

PS360PCROCKS2623d ago

Ok dude. The people hating on it don't make games, they're mostly reporters and bloggers. If your boss invited you to his house for dinner and it sucked and you were asked if it was good would you reply "Terrible, just terrible." He might not be employed by them personally but you know who publishes that game, signs the checks, make the advertising, provides the platform. Yeah, Microsoft.
