Bit-tramp: Microsoft Press conference, Our thoughts

Bit-tramp writes: "We have just got done watching Microsoft’s E3 conference, and well – we have some very strong thoughts on it. We saw the first gameplay footage of Metal Gear Solid: Rising, Gears of war 3, Halo: Reach and.. well that was more or less it till we saw Forza 4 in the middle of the Kinect games. For what we really think Microsoft’s E3 press conference this year, follow the link through!"

and alienate their current audience,biggest mistake sony could do ill turn to PC gaming.

dreadful e3 by microsoft,absolutely no games just dis-kinect

Will-UK2658d ago (Edited 2658d ago )

Not even the most extreme 360 fanboys can say it was a good show

Edit: Actully ill probally get proven wrong below its n4g home of fanboys lol

Milky Joe2658d ago

Oh yes they can.

They'd just be lying =P

LaChance2658d ago (Edited 2658d ago )

I give their show a C.

Kinect was cool, if its not too expensive I see myself getting one eventually, the dance game was the best. Makes me wonder what the hell did that Cirque de Soleil show was for...all they had to do was show Kinect like did right now, oh well.

Gears 3: excellent

Reach: Very good

Kingdom: Looks interesting.

Fable 3: looks very good too.

Sadly thats it. Horrible show IMO at least for core gamers. Not a single new game except for Kingdom but no gameplay.

At least it wasnt worse than the Ninty conferences. What was MS thinking ? Coming to E3 with no games = FAIL.

Cevapi882658d ago

imagine if Sony had held off announcing all of the exclusives they have already revealed for e3......DAMN MS would be in tears....i hope they have new IPs in the works and a lot of GAMEPLAY videos....and if they are going to focus on Move, give us games that we will care about, games that will make us go whoaaa, now that looks like something i can do with a motion controller....SOCOM has me excited, just keep it going in that direction...that is all i ask

knight6262658d ago

wow this xbox conferenence was boring not sure wat was more boring this or james cameron talking about avatar nothing shocked me mayb the new design for the xbox but that didnt even impress the crowed until the heard they getting on for free.

HolyOrangeCows2658d ago

After the first 3 or so games shown, I was bored as heck.

The Wood2658d ago

La chance surprises me.

Ill judge MS after the whole shows over but as it stands they've not done much although the games they did show may be great games i was expecting a touch more.

snoopy rocks people

I am curious to the opinions of those who disagreed with you Jamie Foxx.....

Sure, it would have been a casual players dream...with the tiger thing and the workout game for Kinect....

but for the hardcore people? What was there?...yes there was reach, Gears 3, and CoD....but come on no hardcore player can honestly say that was a good conference...only the casual player can.

boodybandit2658d ago

The only problem is E3 isn't geared towards the casual gamer.
I don't get what MS was thinking. They have to have more than that, don't they?

wiggles2658d ago

I don't know haha. I was really disappointed with what they came out of the gate with...

I mean this whole week Sony has been dropping bombs...and I thought Microsoft would be the silent one in the corner holding something huge up their sleeve....

I guess not...I really hope Sony brings the pain, or at least Nintendo has something better, that conference was painful...we should ask MS to give US the Xbox360 slims for having to watch the damn thing lol..

I mean hell I stopped watching for 10 minutes and I really didn't miss anything other then the fact that Kinect can listen to your voice and that you can call someone...

Graey2658d ago

I would go so far as to say the casuals can not as well.

vhero2658d ago

Worst show ever for MS I think as only had 1 highlight and that was the redesign and no exceptional surprises like last year. Shame really.. We all knew they would show Kinetic stuff but to be fair they still got an entire press conference for that alone so why show it at that one??

boodybandit2658d ago

I came away thinking MS is on the verge of abandoning the hardcore audience like Nintendo did. Other than the usual suspects, where were the GAMES MS? The only way Sony wont have a better show is if they only focus on Move or don't show up!

Sony announced more games before E3 than MS showed today!

I am officially disgusted and I never thought I would say that about a MS press conference. The mind blowing surprise announcement to end the show was redesigned 360 that still has a disc tray and for all we know an external power supply. At least it's piano black, I guess.

Ps_alm3k2658d ago

We already have 5-6 tittle from sony that are already being close to release date; like socom4, killzone 3, gran turismo etc, that are being release in between now and a year.

So Jamie? did they alienate the current audience?

on top of that, these *Core games* are being used by the move controller,
So the real question is... Can the move controller work with those games??

My opinions says yes, therefore go look at ign sococm with move hands on.

I think it was pretty embarrassing more than anything. Not bad, since the presentation was good... but it was obviously focused on a casual audience, the audience who DON'T watch E3 (and I will reiterate this every time an E3 conference doesn't have enough gaming content).

Omega42658d ago

It was broadcast in Time Square btw

PirateThom2658d ago (Edited 2658d ago )

I don't live in Time Square.

You can show whatever you want on a big screen, doesn't mean people will watch or that it belongs there.

D4RkNIKON2658d ago

oh that's why they didn't feel the need to impress real gamers.

mgsfan2658d ago

those where some of the most boring hours of my life i mean dam it started off good but when they went on for like 1/2 an hour with no games then f'in skittles comes on ...... i nerly gave up

Graey2658d ago

HAHAHA Priceless....skittles...LMFAO

UP2658d ago

can someone explain the skittles thing to me i did not se the press conference.

Al Bundy2658d ago

This was the worst E3 conference I've ever seen in my life. Where was the huge megaton bomb that we were promised? Was it the timed exclusive COD map pack deal? Fail!!!

RememberThe3572658d ago

This about how Nintendo would have done it. Boring and anticlimactic.

JEDI WOLVERINE2658d ago (Edited 2658d ago )

This still holds out against competition from MS and Ninty

Omega Zues2658d ago

You missed out on the entire Skittles part.

That will give me nightmares for years to come.

Microsoft_Spokesman2658d ago (Edited 2658d ago )

Timed exclusivity for all CoD DLC for the next 3 years. WOWWWW! FANCY!

crazyclown2658d ago

horrible event for them...epic fail
