From the PlanetXbox360.com feature list:
"As one of the early adopters, it is easy to remember the joy of arriving home from school to see a giant box from CompUSA containing an Xbox pre-order bundle, a belated birthday gift from my dad. Since that day, there have been a multitude of E3 press conferences, all of which Microsoft impressed upon everyone Xbox owner or not that they had something new and incredible coming to the table in the next year. This was the first year at the Electronic Entertainment Expo in the last few that Microsoft, in my opinion, seemingly dropped the ball – happily filling the role Nintendo performed last year of showing off a load of stuff no one really cared to see. Microsoft failed to truly impress and that has created a happenchance circumstance that seems incredibly fortuitous for Sony and Nintendo."
