No price? wtf microsoft? makes me worry a bit EDIT: This conference was one of the worst I've seen in years...
I think they will announce that later
hmm, you would think if out in November there would be a price by now, if it was cheap they would have announced it. This conference is a Fail. I REALLY hope Sony doesn't spend all of their time on Move :( Since they already announced alot of games too. We don't care about Motion Controllers lol
the conference was quite a fail, although some ff the kinect games looked fun for parties. Still Nintendo should sue them for copycats, I mean WTF? and the new xbox looks slick ...but no way I'm gonna pay the same price as a PS3!
Boring conference and no pricing on the Kinetic.
disappointed by the fact that there were no shooters what so ever....to say that you are going to revolutionize gaming is total understatement....which kinect game was suppose to get gamers excited...the only game that the crowd actually showed emotion towards was dance central....the beginning was pretty good....got to see MGS Rising...that gameplay with the slicing mechanics was slick....and it looks like the game is going to include a lot of blood and gore...reveal of halo:reach, fable 3...one new IP and timed map packs for future COD installments...really let down by the conference....the causal crowd isnt watching e3...majority are core gamers who want to see something exciting
Your Shape for getting your personal Tai Chi on. Dance Central for getting the family together and laughing as you all mess up the steps... since it's much like karaoke for the whole body.
After that TERRIBLE presentation, I don't care about the price. I will not buy it.
yeah it's been horrible...
Im watching it and oh god its awful. the girl and her "sister" , it was so painful to watch like. no oscars going to them next year !
horrible is an understatement. I dont know whats worst..mr skiddles...or the dance game.
that sucked BIG TIME
hey but Ubi virtual gym/joga etc was ccool imo :P It will sell a lot mark my words. I hoped they would reduce lag but it still present..
Damn that was terrible, they spent half an hour on COD, Gears, Halo and Fable and an hour and a half on Kinect which barely received any applause from the audience. Where are my games Microsoft. SKITTLES stop that tickles.....WTF????
Worst E3 flop ever IMO. Or am I missing another huge debacle?
no price though makes you wonder its still gonna be super expense so they trying to get a massive hype train before they drop that bomb
This was embarrassing. They have completely sold themselves out to go after the casual market. I have a bad feeling about us hardcore gamers and I am being honest and 100% serious. WTF MS!?
but what was so bad about it? is it just that you WANT to hate MS so you do? every year nintendo does a 100x more horrible conference. EDIT: i agree it was underwhelming for the hardcore audience, but i was sitting here watching this with my grandfather, who hates video games, and at the end of it he said "that's amazing." so MS's mission was accomplished. they tailored that to the non-hardcore, and apparently it's appealing to them. for my grandfather to think anything related to gaming is good, is a giant leap.
I agree, I don't own a 360 (only my ps3) but I don't think they had a bad presentation. Natal actually looked somewhat interesting, but will wait and see the Move's presentation and decide what looks the best IMO.
eery year i don't watch conference because they suck at this..
I think they're waiting to see how much Move will cost before revealing the price. It's the only logical conclusion.
star wars title looks cool, but kinda looks like its on rails, which might be a step in the wrong direction.
SO far all of the games have been on rails... how long before a train sim? The 360 slim was too damn funny, no one cheered after the trailer. WI-FI and 250GB hard drive... just like the PS3 slim 250GIG? Please be nice to us. here's a free 360, we know your old one broke... be nice.
Exactly right! Here is a Free New 360, please don't rip our e3 conference too hard journalists :(? please? lol
That is EXACTLY what I was thinking when they announced that to the crowd at the press event. What ever MS! I don't even know what to take out of that conference other than are hardcore gamers / gaming going to become extinct?
but if you all hate MS so much and 360 so much, why do you spend so much time talking about it? kinda childish and pathetic, really.
@Spydiggity Take it easy man, the reason most of us are bitter is because we have a good reason to be. You have to admit that that presentation was terrible. They spent half an hour on 4 heavy hitters (COD, Gears, Halo and Fable) and an hour and a half on Kinetic. They didn't even bring something new to the plate, there's a game from Crytek and what else? We just expected more from Microsoft that's all but you have to admit it was a big let down.
just above that one, you'd see that i did admit that. but it wasn't as bad as ppl want to make it out to be. people want to hate on MS, so they do. it's as simple as that. the idiots sitting here saying this is "The worst conference ever" are the same mouth breathers i see in EVERY 360 article talking about how much they hate it. it's day in and day out...not limited to just today. it's worn out. we know a lot of you are blind fanboys and have no ability to apply rational thought before speaking, you (not you specifically, Functioningbadly) don't need to keep proving it. yes, it was a lame press conference. no, it isn't close to the worst ever. yes, it appealed very much to a specific audience...we just happen to not be that audience. EDIT: i can't wait til tomorrow when sony shows off move, they put on the same crappy show, showing the same crappy mini games, and all the fanboys say it was the best press conference of all time.
did you guys see those launch tittles SERIOUSLY... how long is this conference? feels like they are dragging it out show something relevant or just end the thing already EDIT: ARE YOU SERIOUS THAT'S IT? ITS OEVER....
This really isn't turning out well IMO. Edit: New Xbox reveal...now were gettin to the juicy stuff. SAME PRICE!! Microsoft...you just screwed up! Its very nice what they did at the end for the press, but no price drop! C'mon man!
Did they really just give everyone a free 360? I should get one for being subjected to that horrible presentation to.
that dance game is cool not natal price....okay only one new game ...MS sucked and thoes natal games dont count
no price just shows even MS is afraid to tell us its gonna be 150 bucks....
e3 conference ever
ms does what they do best... bribe the audience a xbox..... lame
lmao. i know right
I assume they had a price but are holding off due to SOny's Move they want to see what they charge and see if it fits their estimates.. Or They had a price but seing the Negative postings already they dont wan't to mention it's 100+ or something to turn off more users once the bloggers get ahold..
i must admit, i was curious to see how Microsoft would use this kind of tech for gaming when it was first announced. but looking at it now, its not all that its hyped up to be. honestly, kinda disappointed. but lets see what sony brings with move..media claiming its wii 2.0. maybe so, maybe not.. all we can do is wait and see.
that was boring as hell!!!!! borefest!!!!
The whole point of Microsoft's Kinect press event was totally USELESS. MORE THAN 70% OF E3 WAS ALL ABOUT KINECT. Unfrickenbelievable.......... . -End statement
Yeah too much focus on kinect...however, the ESPN service was a nice surprise, seems like something I'd def. use! But from a hardcore gaming aspect it was pretty weak.
Idk what u guys are talking about the conference was good I had shit load of fun laughing and watching peoples comments on the side.
that was bad such a boring conference
hehehe... 360 is no longer a gaming console. More like user navigation system for 299 dollars!
wow im disappointed....
can someone give me a link so i ca watch the kinect fiasco
Nothing announced that we didnt already know about, besides the redesign.....ms failed, I thought they were gonna show me something good.......looking forward to tommorrows sony and nintendo....too bad i'll be at work, but as long as i'm on the ambulance and theres some downtime, i'll catch 'em.
But I was expecting them to show some "core" games at the end, and they didn't even say how Fable III uses it. It will be really good for getting the family playing games together (think "family game night", but with video games), but it looks like it won't be much more than that.
That was a great presentation, but no price and too much focus on casuals, but overall it was great although us hardcore gamers were left out.
Wiinect, that's what I'm calling it.
I mean, I hate the Wii. It has a couple of good games but not many and the Kinect sounds like a more advanced Wii. I like having a controller. I like button mashing. I don't feel having a mini workout while playing a game (unless it's Wii-fit or something similar) then I don't wanna do it. I want to button mash at dragons and be happy
MS is waiting for Sony tomorrow to see price of the move so they can be as close to it as possible…
So Wii Fit had sold, what, a billion copies or so. The big question for Microsoft is "How are we going to convince Joe or Jane Wii to ditch their Wii and shovel out an additional $400+ to replace their Wii which they rarely use?" Not flaming MS here, I am a Sony guy but I like competition... it results in better games overall. I'm really afraid MS is stepping in it here. They went "all in" on this technology and I just don't see how it is going to succeed. I actually predict that both Kinect and Move will fail, but Sony will come out on top because they didn't bet the entire future of their platform on their toy like MS did.
look at ubi Gym/joga imo as gamer i find it cool idea with slick performance (no so lag).
idk a few games looked ok for it, but everything they showed look like eyetoy. that kinect animal game look ok, and dance game, but thats all everything else was like... i dont even have words for it i was really hoping i wasnt right about the new eyetoy part.
laggy as hell , just dance proved it. About 30 minutes neogaf will explode with running, dancing lag, gifs :)
is it me or was all that hype i heard on the net for the star wars game completely destroyed by that horrible on-rail light saber game? seriously the actual character you play looks like crap, while everything looks pre-rendered. seriously the conference was bland. they started hot with their core games, mgsr looked cool (hated how raiden would get shot and he would continue like nothing happened), than kinect completely bored me. the espn stuff was awesome for me a sports lover, the kinect user interface stuff cool, the kinect games were bland and just horribly presented. dance central saved the kinect portion of the conference. dance central love it , got the best cheers until the free 360s. seriously free 360 slim....... damn! 360 with 250 gb hardrive, built in wifi and kinect ready so this is a ps3 250gb minus a blu-ray. so old 360s need to use a separate power plug for kinetic (confirmed on gametrailers' after show), while the new ones have the built in power source for it. man old 360 users best leave a plug empty in their power brick. nintendo and sony the red bouncy ball is in your court. MS conference disappointed. really other than kingdom and your kinect games what new core games where announced?
