Microsoft E3 Press Conference: The Good, The Bad, The Ugly, The Missing

Examiner.com
"Microsoft held their E3 press conference yesterday and it was a mixed bag. The software giant tried to appeal to both the hardcore gaming crowd and the casual gaming crowd with the introduction of the motion-based camera controller, Kinect. We digested the press conference over night and look back at the good, the bad, the ugly, and what was missing in the Microsoft's E3 keynote presentation."

Gears, Halo, Fable... I'm good

Queasy2619d ago

Great start, bad middle, good end

blizzard_cool2619d ago

Great start, lame middle, bullshit end*

Reibooi2619d ago

The end is what made me the maddest. It was obvious that MS thought they could basically pay off the media by giving away free 360's ala Oprah.

The other thing that made me angry was despite MS's CONSTANT insistence that Natal would not be JUST casual focused they showed nothing to prove that. It was just a disappointment. There was really no surprises.

Expected start, horrible middle, bribe.

I'm not going to lie, I was expecting more. Something tells me MS didn't fully show its hand. I'm thinking they're going to wait until after the other two companies show their goods, then MS is going to announce some more stuff. This would be ideal, but I'm only speculating.

Below, oh, you work for them I see.

PirateThom2619d ago

Doubt it, Kinect is their hand. This is Microsoft's push for 2010.

YourFlyness2619d ago

Doubt it, If you are going to show your hand you are going to do it when millions are watching you on the stage alone when all the focus is on you, not after through press releases, when the compitetion could possibly have some much better to talk about.

Typical-Guy2619d ago

Gears yes
Halo ok
Fable 3 noooo looked the same as 2 nothing new.z

Christopher2619d ago

I think people are going to have to realize that Microsoft is going to be pushing the new kid (casual) in their division a lot more now and will likely leave their eldest (hardcore) to fend for itself with third-party titles.

Hopefully this doesn't turn out to be the same thing with Sony and Move (I personally don't think they will, but you never know).

Im honestly undecided what im actually going to be playing on 360 this year. All i can see is Halo Reach?? Not too fussed on the kinect cobblers, Gears 3 is 10 months away at least and Fable 3 is also on Pc, which is where im going to be playing it along with the Call of duty. Pc or Ps3 for MGR, depending on the PC conversion but otherwise PS3 because it 'feels' like Metal Gear's home platform and controls if you can understand that.

Interesting to hear about a crytek exclusive which is probably at least 18 months away but other than that it was a quiet conference for quality looking exclusive titles out this year.

the presser was alright

BeaArthur2619d ago

I'm still confused as to why they have a separate conference for Kinect but still decided to have so much Kinect instead of content for the core gamers.

WrAiTh Sp3cTr32619d ago

I was wondering the same thing myself.

IronFistChinMi2619d ago

It's basically an advert for Kinect. You'll see when it airs on MTV later.

MGRogue20172619d ago (Edited 2619d ago )

EA's press conference kicked ass

NFS Hot Pursuit 3

Bad Company 2: Vietnam expansion pack

Crysis 2

Medal of Honor

Damn, I could go on & on & on.. It just pwned the hell out of Ubisoft & Microsoft's conferences :)

That announcement of the new Xbox 360 was the only exciting thing about Microsoft's one.. everything else was a waste of my life. fell asleep during Ubisoft's one so can't talk about that lol

supersonicsaga2619d ago

I'm sorry it's not that I hate shooters becuase I own a couple of them but are those the only games EA is gonna make?

I'm definitely getting NFS Hot Pursuit 3 since NFS Hot Pursuit 2 was the last one I got.

BeaArthur2619d ago

I'm just hoping Gamestop gets those codes by Friday for the MoH beta.

FunAndGun2619d ago

What about Dead Space 2! :)

kewlkat0072619d ago

a couple other multiplatform titles....Kinect for now, is not for me. My 2 nieces might enjoy it though when they come over.
