VG247: Oh lordy. Oh lordy, lordy, lordy. It’s so on. Fresh from its Natal/Kinect event last night, Microsoft is the first out of the big three to have its main E3 press conference. We’re reporting live from LA. What to expect?
Alright, lets do it MS! i wonder which is first? The 360 conference where MS is in the position to wow with ANY new xbox exclusive IP or the crowd pleasing Circ de soleil @ the natal(Kinect?) conference. mucho excited.
are you jumping for joy? If so your ready for Kinect and the main game mechanic it will offer! just playing, kinda.... crowd pleasing Kinect conference seems like a reach after what i have seen today :-) im sure MS will show something for every gamer
live on this link http://e3.gamespot.com/pres... 3 hours left
They have some better things to show for Kinetic because what's been shown so far is very unimpressive ... I also hope there's some good things to be shown not kinetic related as I really do'nt care much for it in it's present state ...
I wouldnt say "very unimpressive" just "expected". MS were supposed to show the unexpected with Kinetic and they served something completely unsurprising. Its like a bomb that didnt explode.
Hoping for some big news and crazy trailers...I've read that Halo Reach is on Wednesday and Gears on Thursday??? They are trying to spread the hype throughout the week...whatever...get this thing rolling...I want to see this 360 slim...Kinect exclusives like Fable, Milo...etc...MGS4 being ported to the 360...c'mon now..it's all happening in a couple of hours.. As for Kinect...The show went over everybody's head...Tuesday the intended audience will get a look...That would be people outside LA...lol...casuals everywhere will love it... The games for Kinect have been great so far...really good graphics...I hope that adventure game is included in a bundle...walk on co-op...The dance game will wear out my daughter...can't wait to see more...
I thought the conference was from Tuesday the 15th - Thursday the 17th am I missing something?
the MS Kinect conference is today...its like a pre e3 conference that will only deal with Natal/Kinect related stuff heres a good link.... http://e3.gamespot.com/pres...
The MS conference will be interesting to see. I'm more interest in MS and Nintendo's things, since I don't really know what might go down with them. I know Sony will show amazing things with games and news, so I don't need to worry with them. and @ cez of rage I doubt MGS4 will ever be ported to 360. Even with cut content and a lot of compression, FFXIII was 3 disc and took a hit on the visual part of it. I don't even want to think of how many disc MGS4 would be. But who knows...
Thanks Cevapi that was useful.
i was so optimistic for Kinetic but it really has been crushed i should of known it was flawed when people said microsoft have started working on natal 2 I just want to see the hardcore games i don't care about controlling the interface with mottion sensing a pad is quicker microsoft really let me down lets hope e3 on a hole is a plus rather then a negative
MS better have something real good to offer after last night...
But at least they have something to show!:O
i'm so excited
Can you hide it?
I'm about to loose control and I think I like it.
3 hours to go, this should be fun. Can I ask a favour, I know this sounds lame and ironic. BUT don't go spouting nonsense on EVERY Microsoft article. EVERYONE will have sonething good to show, Sony, Microsoft AND Nintendo. Sure Natal didn't go over too well, but I still believe Microsoft has more to show. Same goes for Sony, just because they showed KZ2, inFAMOUS 2, Motorstorm 3 and Littlebigpalnet 2 DOESN'T mean they won't have more to show and even if they don't that's 4 great EXCLUSIVE announced within the last few weeks, what more could you want? Wii Music to fill the gap?
Camon Microsoft wasnt a Wii-Like better ?? that sh** suc**
Ms has been playing you guys for years and using gaming media to do it, N4G, Gametrialers, 1UP, Gamespot, EUgamer etc. If you don't wake up now, you'll never wake up. Once Mass Effect and Splinter Cell get announced for the PS3 and you count the number of exclusive titles for the 360 for the year as only 3 then will you wake up then? Nope, cause you've all been for badly brain washed for years and it's now hard to break free. All these media outlets have known of SC & ME going multiplat for the better part of a year and they never inform the public but just keep the smoke and mirrors going. Many 360 gamers have made the move to the PS3, and now understand fully how stupid it was to support ms the way they did after seeing the quality and value they get. WAKE UP PEOPLE! It's a big scam, it's always been a scam. It's MS, it's how they roll.
agree MS has always been that way just look at their buggy Windows software...
While I agree with Atatakai I think MS has done a good job with Windows 7. Windows isn't an easy thing to put together. All software engineers know it's impossible to create bug free software and Windows has a hard time because it has to work with all the hardware out there as well as those that are produced in future. Apple doesn't have this problem since Mac OS only has to be compatible with Mac hardware.
wow if i made a comment like yours i would have been banned for sure. I love my 360. I love xbox live. I love achievements and I love the 360 controller, and i have been a gamer for more than 25 years. I have owned atari 500, 2600 and 7200, sega master system, genesis and dreamcast, nes, snes, nintendo 64, gamecube, playstation, playstation 2 and 3DO. I have loved all of those systems as well. So please stop this we have been brainwashed. The only big problem with the 360 that i will call out is the RROD. Other than that I am more than happy with it. In fact i think it is the system that i have played the most in my life. Stop being such a hater and recognize that all systenms have their benefits. but if you want to talk about brainwashing how about all the playstation extremists who bought the playstation 3 at $600.00, with no cables, games, no rumble (lol), no decent online capabilities, and a whole lot of arrogance, back in 2006. of course things have changed, but dont single out a company when they are all full of it one way or the other. peace
MS better deliver, because after the fiasco last night, all of the Media they havent paid off yet are going for their throats
Even though the presser was a complete and utter bomb, at least have the courtesy to pronounce and spell the name of this new MS wonder product. I never knew dyslexia was no prevalent. Reading comprehension for the win. I will grant a pass on this one, as it must have been tough to interpret the spelling through tear soaked eyes.
The inability of some people to get the name right demonstrates it's a piss poor name. Natal was short, distinct, and already had a ton of momentum, it was sheer stupidity to change it. But then sheer stupidity is about all we've seen from MS as of late.
i already knew it was smoke & mirrors, because why would any company hype this too beyond the, "MOST HYPED ADDON EVER" & not have the confidence to show it publicly to the world? why wait for e3 when u know u couldve been showed it off in other events? the answer is simple. let the casuals buy into the pre recorded BS & let them sell like hot cakes even tho ms themselves know, this is just another slightly upgraded eye toy. i mean seriously yes natal has potential but how are these games really going to show its potential? with top of the line devs working on it right? and we all know ms doesnt have enough 1st & 2nd party strength to help do that for them where as sony & nitty do for their motion controllers. i really hope ms can prove me wrong but if they really pre recorded that first event, i wouldnt be suprised if they did it again. i just hope they have a playable demo for ppl to actually play it at e3 but i doubt it after last night. i mean come on even itagaki left after seeing all the BS.
The only thing I'm excited to see is halo reach. Otherwise I'm expecting lots of FAAIL.. **** you kinect, **** you microsoft and **** you nintendo for making motion controlling casual shovelware **** the norm. I eagerly await to see what sony has in store.
going around in the comments gonna be a "live" video stream or just a blog. or am i totally wrong and its only a countdown?
where can i get video stream of th MS conference?
