Edge: Analysis: Microsoft Press Conference

The segregation of Kinect into its own bizarre spectacle left many hoping that this morning’s more traditional keynote would, aptly, reassure more traditional gamers. Talk of “a new era in entertainment” was inevitable; their place in it was the real concern.

not because im a ps3 fan, no. i just thought they spend way too much time on the camera and not much on the real games. crackdown 2, fable 3, halo reach is Microsofts line-up for 2010. sorry to break it to you but sony already announced more games. I will make a prediction that sony will own E3 tomorrow and if you dont agree then you must be married to the xbox 360. Have a good future together, i will game on the system that doesnt isolate my audience

edit: at disagree, enjoy but hardcore gamers didnt make nintendo money and Microsoft will follow

MS did great with redesigning the 360...yet I wanted to see more games.

hopefully they redesigned the hardware failure out of the system lol, but seriously the conference was a lot of bells and whistles that looked cool but when you look deeper you see that aside from name changing and a resigned console you really didn't get a lot. The only reason i would be at the conference is to get a free 360 to replace my broken one.

Like the slim, not crazy about kinetic. My wife will dig it though and that's who they're going after

Pennywise2837d ago (Edited 2837d ago )

Captain Tuttle, whatever they were going for they failed. A long time MS supporter like you doesn't even know the name of the stupid camera. Talk about marketing blunder...

Captain Tuttle2837d ago

I've always been skeptical. Again though, they're not going after me or you.

This is all Nintendos fault. I have no doubt that the Sony conference today will be equally painful. It's all bout casuals.

Pennywise2837d ago

We can definitely agree this is Nin's fault.... But I don't think Sony's conference will be all fluff. God I hope not.

Captain Tuttle2837d ago (Edited 2837d ago )

Yeah, I'm hoping Sony saves the day for us. MS showed some stuff I'm interested in, Halo Reach, Fable 3 but they were afterthoughts. And there's some really good multi-plats coming out this year. I just hope that Sony keeps it's eye on the ball (us core gamers). It's really going to be about the tone of their conference and I have a feeling it's going to be casual. They'll be pandering to the journalists from USA Today and Newsweek rather than the ones from Game Informer.

I was looking forward for new exclusive games and new IPs, but they decided to suck. By the way opening the show with a Multiplat game was soooo pathetic. I thought Halo was their "Ace"!
