Microsoft E3 press conference disappoints

Microsoft kicked off E3 2010 with a whimper in an uncharacteristically boring media conference today. Although all of the upcoming blockbuster titles were in attendance, the conference was geared heavily toward casual and younger gamers as Microsoft revealed over half a dozen Nintendo Wii-like titles for Kinect.

greenburg BEFORE e3 said they had the most hardcore tittles ready for e3 than ever before.....riiiight

Anyone notice you don't see Hallmark Moment, niceguywii60, crapgamer, N4PS3G, Wrathman, or the others around?

They're off somewhere with their tails between their legs.

The Kinect conference was a disaster and the one today was boring. Even the biggest of fanboys are incapable of twisting it, so they aren't going to bother to post.

RememberThe3572839d ago

Haha I didn't notice that. They'll be back. They just have to pull themselves together after their favorite console manufacturer gives them 3 games we already knew about, one new game, and Kinect.

JeffGUNZ2839d ago

and that was pathetic. What a let down. I lost all interest in Kinect.

Eamon2839d ago

A huge letdown!

The first half was okay when it showed ACTUAL games but the second half that was filled with Kinect was horrendous.

And MS thought they'd bribe the journalists by giving em all free xbox slims.

probably the worst conference I've ever seen, the very end was great but it didn't make up for the 2 hours I was waiting for something good to happen

I will wait for Kevin Butler to crack jokes about MS's conference at Sony's conference :P

ipwnall2839d ago

All of nintendo's conferences so far. I am disgusted and sad I wasted that much of my life.

Keith Olbermann2839d ago

I think their motion device may have some potential..perhaps...but they did not convince me that they will have anything Im interested in this year.

poindat2839d ago

...That they had a surprise that would be bigger than Natal/Kinect?

...What exactly is that, because I certainly didn't see anything.

Mista T2839d ago

I guess it was the slim, but the nuclear Go codes were hijacked by North Koreans

evilmonkey5012839d ago (Edited 2839d ago )

slim was it. Hey! mista T hijacked my retort! lol. go A team!

poindat2839d ago

Sorry, but a slightly smaller 360 with nothing new other than built in wi-fi (which should have been there from the beginning) is in no way bigger than an entirely new motion control concept. Not at all.

I agree with the article. Sony has already won the press conference with the titles they've already announced. LBP 2, KZ3, Motorstorm 3, Infamous 2.

That was boring.

ALFAxD_CENTAURO2839d ago (Edited 2839d ago )

I disagree a little, well, was dissapointed but not at all.

By the way, I'm surprised that MS is making the same games from Eyetoy, just take a look in the 2nd point.

----------------------------- -------------------
Exclusives and Games

The surprise that Crytek is making an Exclusive for Xbox 360 and for PC, I take that as a Surprise.

Gears of War 3

Looks good, but I was expecting more than just taking cover and shooting

MGS Rising

About MGS Rising (if you can count that as Xbox 360 Content) was interesting.

----------------------------- ---------------------


The game of Sports and Fitness, well I saw that before on PS2 and Eyetoy 5 years ago, Kinetic:

Kinect with Forza Motorsport, the gameplay looks solid, but the driver was not accelerating, the handling of the car with hands looks solid.

MS deliver more for Casual Audience.

Star Wars for Kinect, was a montage, not a Live gameplay, but was looking good.

----------------------------- ---------------------

Xbox Slim

The Xbox 360 Slim, which is a good thing because I assume it have better ventilation, less RRODs, and is included with Wi Fi and is ready for Kinect.

But the price is $299, considering it should be less than that. It don't have a Blu ray Drive (that cost $200 alone).

cyborg69712839d ago

Even though I'm pro Sony come on you. You have to bring more than that here.

im looking forward to Sony E3.

Every year, Sony made great E3 conferences.
Remember Chewbacca last year lol

D4RkNIKON2839d ago (Edited 2839d ago )

Kevin Butler will not disappoint! Sony is bringing the big guns, they made the right move by announcing their biggest titles pre E3. Every one was talking about Sony games up till E3 and after that MS conference, the left the door wide open for Sony to steal the show

silkrevolver2839d ago

2007 anyone? But honestly... I don’t know which was worse SONY 2007 or MS 2010... nevermind, I think we all know... when you don’t show a single new exclusive REAL game... you lose.

qface642839d ago

you got off easy then i was bored to DEATH

Microsoft_Spokesman2839d ago

What do they mean by "Kinetc ready"? Doesn't it connect with a USB or something?

pileobunnies2839d ago

Kinetic (I still can't spell it) with the slim needs no extra power supply. Apparently if it's used with an old-school Xbox, you have to use a supplementary power source.

Microsoft_Spokesman2839d ago

REALLY? The power brick of the Xbox is already the size of a milk carton...

DoomeDx2839d ago

Dude, that running game they we're doing, was also in a playstation 2 eye toy game..

so MS copied nintendo & Sony..

vhero2839d ago

Exactly as if we needed more proof Sony already did it first..

RememberThe3572839d ago (Edited 2839d ago )

But the first chick was working it. She really didn;t have much rhythm but she was feeling it. I would defiantly break her off in the club :)

kaos_fish II2839d ago

That image will haunt me...

Pennywise2839d ago

You should of had a NSFE warning. My eyes.... I will never be able to forget that stupidity.
