yh i have to say that was pretty bad. probably the worse e3 press conference ever.

dkp232745d ago

Considering that last years conference was probably worst than this years, highly doubt this conference was the worst EVER...

Anarki2745d ago

No... this one is muuuch worse. Anyone for kinect?

Here's what Microsoft showed us at last year's E3 press conference: Halo, COD, Forza, Fable, Gears, Kinect, Kinect, Kinect.

Now think about what we've just seen at this year's press conference. It wasn't better... or worse. It was exactly the same!!! Except this year we got some new Halo games announced... 4 of them!

Kid Actors Galore. (KINECT was in your face)

ICE T was kind of embarrassing on GEARS
HALO 4 was the only highlight well as multi plat videos

lol I don't know about worst E3 ever, there is alot out there for that.

Wii Play drummer & band anyone, or Real-time weapon change/Giant enemy crab? haha.

Maybe the most boring conference yet, I couldn't even laugh at it.

Here's my summary. Don't keep a gun around when you watch it, you'll shoot yourself. Yes, it's that bad.

Microsoft has single-handedly killed gaming. I'm thinking of selling my 360. Not a joke. I don't want to support MS if that's what they're after.

Here's hoping Sony and Nintendo save us from this travesty!

It was awful. I don't understand this obsession with motion controls. The day gaming doesn't involve a physical control with buttons (and not some dumb dildo shaped controller aka move) is the day I quit gaming.

Note: Nothing against move, but it is shaped funny :D Also don't like kinect. Wii is ok because it doesn't try to be anything but a little bit of casual fun.

although I like my ps3 more, i was hopeful MS would show killer instinct or jade empire 2 or a new otogi game or a proper banjo and kazooi game or surprise us with alan wake 2 but they did what nintendo has done with the wii generation - they have clung to what makes them money i.e. halo, gears, forza and kinect and it seems they are going to stick with that and not invest any money or hardcore games outside of that.

It's a shame since last generation, although they didn't do as well, they fought a lot harder and offered some really cool games outside of halo and forza, namely the above mentioned games and some more.

Hopefully Nintendo will redeem themselves tomorrow. If the rumors have any merit we just might get a proper console from them tomorrow. I'll be delighted if Nintendo announces a new ip aside from their tried-and-true series. As for Microsoft--diversify. Until they embrace that philosophy, I will continue to be critical of them even if I enjoy Halo or Gears of War.

Here's a summary for you. Microsoft would f**k up a wet dream.

twas awful, nothing else needs to be said

@above, im glad even xbox fans can admit this

Microsoft's E3 2011 conference = crappy kinect games & MOAR Halo

It was really lame over all.. 3/10

Looking forward to Sony's conference, I'm sure that their one will be like 1000x better. :)
