A cast of some of the most influential and popular recording artists performed at Activision Publishing, Inc.'s special E3 preview event at the STAPLES Center in Los Angeles on Monday night in celebration of the company's highly anticipated games.
It`s crazy. You realize some of these company high up have ZERO gamers in them making choices for things like this. Seriously how many of you have thrown on Usher for background music while playing a game? Some corporate dudes are sooooooo nerdy and out of touch it`s unbelieve their companies remain active. Look at the MS conference for instance out of touch, rich, nerdy suits came up w/ those ideas and now they look stupid, the 1st show looked like Klan Rally. Some of these companies should get over theirselves and employ a random gamer of the street for crying out loud to at least giving them some imput for things like this.
lol it's funny when the people trying to cater the conference to gamers (the PR guys) aren't gamers and totally screw up how to impress the gamers. It's quite simple reason. Show your games... It doesn't really take a rocket scientist to figure it out. As long as you show us good quality games, we are pretty easy to please
when i saw the title....DJ Hero popped into my head...maybe the artists will be included in the game...just a guess
MS relying on celebraties that have no interest in games for publicity is hilarious. Its really stupid because you can see it in their face that they really didn't want to be there or have any interest at all in games. Now this?. If people wanted a music concert they would go to one. If they wanted music they should get people that made music for games to play. At least then it wouldn't be so out of place.
i put on some usher and eminem while gaming, but i completely get what you're saying.
DEADMAU5? Wow. I cant wait to see him in EDC10 next week.
So thats where all the MW2 revenue is going.
yup. nothing like paying for old mw1 maps at a retarded high price only to watch your money go to a concert you'll never see and, hopefully, never would want to see. Tune in next e3 when Activision attempts to charge 59.99 for dlc map packs by enticing you with the amazing sounds of Madonna. Nothing like camping and glitching while singing "Vogue" And with that, I go and play Uncharted 2.
loool they got more celebs there then games 2 show >_<
They think I'm gonna buy more of their games because they got Usher to do a live performance at E3? Fail They must really think gamers are as stupid as the people who run Activision.
I went to a DEADMAU5 show like 4-5 days ago in Puerto Rico and it was really cool...
WTF this is a game conference or a music festival?
I was at the concert, it was def really weak for being a game preview event, but it was a badass concert
Maybe, just maybe, they should have kicked off with GAMES!!!!!
lololololol......ok, I really and honestly thought nothing could be worse then MS show, but this actually takes the no one spot for alienating gamers from what should be a show for .... GAMERS !! wow...lol.. This is it boys... gaming is going the way of the dodo, they will slowly turn us all into fitness freaks while listening to pop stars. next years e3 will be one giant stage show using all the motion sensing tech. This has to be the most pathetic E3 year ever. what a joke. well at least Ubisoft, EA and Sony still know what gaming means, how long till they are infected with this casual virus that is taking over.
What does this crappy music have to do with gaming? I think all that money they made off MW2 got to their head and saided,"We don't need to make greats games anymore, after all you the gamer are only dollar signs in are eyes.", so well give you nothing good.
