M$ steal E3 with What exactly? Kinect?
Timed exclusives and/or timed DLC
timed exclusive DO Not steal any shows! We're no longer in 2009 you know!!
The days of third party exclusives are over, there's too much money to be made. The only exception would be Nintendo since they're putting out a new console. Hell, they have enough money to make GTA V a timed exclusive. As for timed DLC, it's not a draw unless your name is Call of Duty and even then, sales aren't drastically changed by it.
"steal e3" ???? what are going to do, run away with what is up for grabs?? absolutely nothing. ffs there is nothing to win. although, i personally think that microsoft will show their new console in the hope of stealing some of nintendos thunder
@king dong - Yes MS, is the Grinch. :D. It looks like Nintendo might have a good E3 and Sony could also have a good E3 depending on whether they announce details on certain games. With MS, I can only see them having a good E3 if they announce new IPs, because Fable, Forza, Gears and Halo etc. are a given. If they show Kingdoms that will be a good start.
@cyclonus007 even with nintendo new console are third parties going to devlop just for one console. No. Just not cost effective enough. So do not expect third party exclusives for the Wii2 more multiplats being put onto the Wii2
Microsoft hasn't had an exceptional E3 in years. So they're either due for one, or things are just going to repeat themselves.
Well... they could steal E3 by making a new LEGO game exclusively for Kinect. :) lol
Is there anything left to steal for Microsoft?
I heard Sony hired a secret Agent to prevent this.
There's just no way. MS's conference last year was 90% Kinect, and you know this year will be the same. They'll show Gears 3, again, make their Halo 4 announcement, show some Forza stuff, maybe another Codename Kingdom trailer that shows us nothing and then it'll be all "Skittles stop! That tickles!" Just like last year.
with what i just saw if they do i fear for the next year of gaming
I hope they do well, but I don`t think they`ll really have enough to "out-do" Nintendo or Sony. Nintendo and Sony OWN too many companies that only produce games for them, MS is always kind of at a disadvantage when it comes to showing heaps of new software. IMO, the biggest possibility for them is showing new hardware, which they might unveil the new Xbox (which would be big). But I don`t think they will since they just showed Kinect last year.
Project Diamond seems pretty neat (price pending) but I don't think it will steal the show. I'm not sure what else MS has up there sleeves apart from from the following... 1) Kinect Games 2) Halo HD 3) Witcher 2 4) Codename Kingdoms 5) Price drop 6) Forza 4
if their show ends up being showing gameplay of Gears 3 yet again...ill be disappointed...they already did it once...i would be happy with it only if they showed something new along with it, but Gears 3 cant be the main factor yet again, when they did that last year
witcher hahahahaha lmao why would they show that... this is what they are going to show 1.Kinect bullshit 2.Gears of War 3 3.Forza 4 4.MW3 5.Skyrim (happened with fallout and bethesda dont have their own conference) 6. Skype/IPTV
So Psycho, are you saying that they will have a little something for everyone?
Like an E3 equivalent of the Grinch?
With pre-recorded Star Wars Kinect videos, of course!
We won't know for sure until the end of next week. Until then, stop with all these pointless articles that fan the fanboy flames.
Yes. Sincerely, Smoke and Mirrors.
With a very big fucking gun. That's how.
MS will always steal E3. That's what they do and it's important to them. They put on a good show! (Hey, it worked for Obama too =)...anyway It doesn't matter what they do it's how they do it. It's decieving because they lead people to believe it's cool even though the actual substance is usually the worst.
I think they'll announce they are developing the Next Box. And I think they'll be a few games people will not expect. But I don't know if they'll steal the show.
the only thing Microsoft can do that'll astonish me is if they show a new box with prototype specs demo and exhibition. Other than that and code-name kingdoms...no
Don't know what MS will "steal". The past few E3 conferences were pretty dismal. I doubt this year will be exciting.
They must have something else up their sleeve. The rumoured TV service thing is really targeting just the US audience and if that is their big hitter then their E3 will not go down very well. They really need more than just this and Kinect at their conference. I suspect an exclusive or two announced as well but again they need more
The thing is though that MS do seem content to press the "Xbox is an entertainment system and not just a games console" thing. I wish they'd focus more on the gaming part of it (after all does anyone buy an Xbox just to download movies or use Facebook?) and announce some games but I just don't see it happening, especially after the last few conferences.
I think the same, Microsoft has been far too focused on the outside applications to gaming and everything that surrounds the games aside from the games themselves. It started with XBOX Live and grew from there. Kinect seems to be another tool in their arsenal that functions as a peripheral that can control the dashboard and Netflix and all these other things. Skype is another company that adds to their list of creating a media hub. Has the actual gaming experience changed much on Live? Do we see larger scale games with dedicated servers? How about MMO's? No, what we see are Facebook integration and video services like ESPN. Yet they wonder why the XBOX 360 doesn't do well outside of the U.S. Who else can access ESPN? Who will this diamond service appeal to outside of the U.S.? I want them to invest in the games, it is after all what the original Xbox was mostly about upon release. Now it has become the back-burner to things like accessing Live on various devices and seeing what our Gamerscore is. You can only rely on a few IP's for so long and you can't get people to continue to invest in your product if it has the same software as everyone else. Spending money on timed exclusives and DLC is no longer required, they have the 3rd party support. It's time to lead by example.
Well level headed I couldn't agree with you more. Lets hope someone at MS has been listening and wants to give its gamers what they want. If MS does not deliver this week I'm filing for divorce.
Lol @ low carb. Sorry to sound like a snide know it all c#nt my old friend but this switch to other stuff has been apparent for the longest. Some people used to get shut the ef down for stating what has been stated above. As a multi console owner i too want ms to show me stuff i cant get elsewhere.......is that too much to ask. Facebook, espn, xy and z are welcome additions but the games must be the priority and im not talking about some clap ur hands sh:t neither. Show me a couple games that arent kinect related and ill be pleased. Dont even care if they wont get released this side of the olympics because im used to that but these gaps are starting to annoy. I know multiplatform games will always fill a void but ive always wanted more than that. Oh, i can help you with your divorce...
This is literally word for word the exact same stuff I was hearing before E3 2010. What a shiteous conference that was. Unless they show Xbox 3, no they will not steal E3.
I would be really disappointed if there were announcements like, say, Versus XIII going multi or MGS5 announced for Xbox360 exclusively. :-S Hope it doesn't happen anything like this...
r u stupid neither of those are going to happen especially the latter lmao
Can you just reply without insulting? I know they're not gonna happen...those were just examples of possible megatons. Seems like internet has become the place where anyone can insult anybody without being face to face. Shame on you.
I don't care about Versus XIII going multiplatform, that is until development on the PS3 edition has been completed. I want it to be the best Nomura & team can make it, with no compromise. MGS5 is Peace Walker which is also coming to 360. MGS will never be an Xbox exclusive.
Anything is possible but the best thing to do is wait and see.Right now they have just as good of a chance as Sony or Nintendo.
This article begins: " "Microsoft has been very quite in recent E3's with regards, to massive jaw dropping announcements such as the 2008 megaton...." I suppose "quite" is supposed to be quiet. "with regards, to..." putting a comma in there makes no sense. "megaton" cannot be a noun -- does the writer really means that an announcement about Final Fantasy was the equivalent of one million tons of TNT? with writing this bad, can the views expressed be taken seriously?
lol bubbles up.. this is what happens when everyone knows that they can create a blog/site, write trash and leech hits from blogs4fanboys.
Nope, it has too top : ( and all the unannounced exclusives) .agent . Twisted metal . The last guardian . Ni no kuni .resistance 3 .Uncharted 3 .StarHawk .ffIV .The Gettaway .infmous 2 .Eight Days .NGP: Broken--Sony Call of Duty--Activision Dungeon Defenders--Epic Games Dynasty Warriors--Koei Gravity Daze--Sony Hot Shots Golf--Sony Hustle Kings--Sony Killzone--Sony Little Big Planet--Sony Little Deviants--Sony Lost Planet--Capcom Metal Gear Solid--Konami Monster Hunter 3rd--Capcom Reality Fighters--Sony Resistance--Sony Smart As--Sony Uncharted--Sony Wipeout--Sony Yakuza--Sega .
Nintendo will talk about the successor to the Wii. Sony will talk about the successor to the PSP. Unless Microsoft comes up with something other than patting itself on the back for its Kinect sales, then I don't see how it could steal E3 away from its competition.
Hmmm, i hear ya. Too much speculating with all these articles though. Im just gunna hope for the best. If you really think about it honestly ms could probably show half the amount of exclusive titles sony or nintendo show and be winners because hardly anybody whos really observed the last few years expects ms to show a glut of core games even more so since kinects/natals announcement. Sad but brutally true imo. I know some would never agree but the western media would more likely than not call ms's e3 the best ever if they did what i said above. Us vs them i suppose
How come every sonyfanboy likes to make list of exclusive games in damn near every thread. Most of which no one has ever heard of or will purchase. Just because its an exclusive that doesn't make it the best thing since sliced bread. Microsoft has had pitiful E3's for at least the last 2-3 years. They never announce anything new or exclusive other than Gears, Halo, Forza, COD DLC, or Fable in some form or another. Kinect is the one exception. Even though that's all they ever have it appears to be enough to keep the money rolling in. They must be doing something right even though they don't have 50 first party studios like Sony. Maybe 3rd parties like Ms more because they don't have to compete with them as much. You notice that MS always releases their big games in September which clears the way for the 3rd parties. I think that this is why 3rd party support on the Wii is so poor. Sony better think long and hard about the release date for Uncharted 3. It's too close to COD: MW3. Back on topic, MS won't be stealing anything this year for sure.
"Microsoft has been very quite in recent E3's with regards, to massive jaw dropping announcements such as the 2008 megaton of Xbox 360 receiving Final Fantasy XIII." The grammar Nazi in me isn't that picky but come on... Also, I don't think FFXIII's release on the 360 made it any less of a terrible experience. I'm so happy I borrowed it from a friend rather than buy it.
Regardless of what side of the fence you fall, this article was pointless and lacked any real informative punch.
Their presser's time slot seems odd to me. They're going early morning like Nintendo, a stark change for them. They always seemed to go for the later slots, always the first of the 3 and solo. They're sharing Monday with Sony this time, who has a 5pm slot. Also a departure for them (usually 12 - 1pm), but a more positive one I'd say. More working people/kids are home and watching TV for those late slots.
ms havnt got shite,wot,gears of war 3 and some laggy kinect games for kids and a few lame exclusives. sure ms will steal the show. this e3 is sony's and nintendos
This is Nintendos E3, first of the next-gen home consoles, and hard core games basically confirmed for it due to the ones (finally starting) to come out on the 3DS, and the annouced hard core 3DS titles. AND they seem to have lost out in the steal PS3 games states.
Handheld 360 with full live support? I can dream can't I. It would be awesome for gamers Ngp and xbox handheld, the games would be awesome. And the competition for both companies would be good.
IDK i think its either guna be SONY or NINTENDO das guna steal E3 2011
AHHAHAAHHA ye ye ye, and i'm santa klaus
@ Topic title ...no.
I'm not sure Kinect, even if it looks great, can top what Sony and Nintendo will have to offer. Nintendo: New, highly promising console (Cafe) with unique and innovative features. A tight, massively improved online system, amazing graphics, greatly improved 3rd party connections leading to awesome, high quality games. Pokemon RPG! =D More 3DS info. Sony: NGP/Vita that has been getting great reception so far and a really promising lineup of games, with great technology. And backwards compatibility (upscaling) with PSP games. The price point might be a deciding factor for many, but it's a hugely impressive device, especially considering what Transfarring can offer the platform. It will be HUGE for Sony. PS3 info... new IPs - that "ADRFIT" action-RPG game from DONTNOD Entertainment that could be something truly special. Possibly an "AGENT" reveal trailer and info. Quantic Dream's new project set for 2012. Santa Monica's latest project (GOW4/new IP) set for 2012. There's even rumours of that "DUST 514" MMO/FPS coming exclusively to PS3 - that could spell big things for Sony and MMOs on console in general - especially since it's free-to-play. And who knows what else? PS Move - we can expect some really cool demos, especially from titles such as "SORCERY" and both quirky and fully-fledged games that Sony are sure to announce that support Move. ... and more info on their known games such as StarHawk, Twisted Metal, Uncharted 3 and The Last Guardian. Did I mention Uncharted 3? The demo that Naughty Dog are planning to show will blow some minds! Microsoft will have some Kinect titles to show off, including their supposed core offerings. They might be great, and yet the might look just how people were speculating. They have Halo HD, Codename Kingdoms, and the expected (Gears, Forza, Fable). In the eyes of serious gamers, they will need something much, much bigger to have any chance of stealing the show... More new IPs and true platform-defining exclusives. Not IPTV that's only available in the U.S. Maybe they'll get Justin Bieber or some other redundant celebrity to show up and introduce a Kinect game - OH JOY!
NO Probably just show more Kinect crap.........
nope... well actually.. they'll steal 3rd place that's about it.
the only way they can is by announceing a new console and showcasing 5 hardocre titles that all run in full 1080p with 4x minimum anti aliasing at witcher 2 quality other than that, no, snowballs chance in hell of them doing anything spectacular
They'd just strike out and leave all the gamers scratching their heads with more unless features unrelated to gaming. Maybe if Ms actually attempted to expand their studios and create some new games it'd be interesting, but as things stand it'll be boring and stale and keep following that direction even with new hardware.
Also I gotta say is that Microsoft better have something more then Kinect games to impress anyone at the conference. :P
why? Why does microsoft need more then just kinect games? I understand a lot of people could care less, but there's 10 million kinect owners, and many more potential owners out there. People need to stop thinking that Sony, Nintendo and MS are in it for them. They need to make money.
All any gamer can ask for is variety. It's just like with Sony. I don't mind that Sony talk about Move or 3D just stick with your roots and less on the gimmicks. Either that or show some games that would make me get those devices. I've yet to get Move or Kinect because their aren't many hardcore games made from the ground up that work only for that device. I'm not against anyone making money I just want it done in a way that gives the gamer value and offers plenty of variety. More options the better. I'll be optimistic and see what everybody announces all I want is variety. That's it.
Then you're not against microsoft having only kinect games, you're against Sony, MS, and Nintendo pandering to the mainstream. What if they show you that kinect and move has the titles you want, what if they're have those games that make you want a Kinect or Move?
the only thing Microsoft steal is the consumers wallet.
So the others dont ? LOL how can they still be in business then?
Microsoft has just as much a chance of "stealing E3" as Sony or Nintendo. Well, maybe Nintendo has a better chance because of their new console announcement, but still... Enough with these pointless articles!
I don't understand how a convention to showcase your upcoming product has turned into a war among console fans. Every year I've either read or watched whats happening, like what I see and then wait for it to be released. I don't care about MS's press conference circus of celebrity pay off's and what their releasing because the only game I'll be buying this year from them is Gears3. Sony on the other hand I've always been impressed with and Nintendo, well I don't really care about them anymore but will be interested in what they have too offer in the new system.
i saw the conference big shame.
looking at this now just makes me laugh
