Bone-idle writes "Microsoft kick off this year’s E3 having learnt from last year’s mistakes they come back hard and strong going straight for the hardcore gamer market with announcements about Halo 4, MW3, Mass Effect 3 and Star Wars for Kinect."
Much better job than last year, mixed the hardcore game with the party style Kinect ones. Star wars looks interesting.
better than last year. The major problem was most of there stuff was already leaked. I disagree with you for star wars kinect. Good for children but for us Star Wars fans will not like the on rails also not really many core games
The on rails could be a problem all right but ill still get it just to be able to use The Force !!
Journalists are becoming really out of touch. Though thinking about it, they have for a while now.
yes we want games like battlefront 3 not that sad excuse for a game !
I was extremely impressed by Tomb Raider. But that has nothing to do with Microsoft.
impresses? i wasnt impressed at all, only Halo teaser did it for me
I know for sure if Sony press conference was that bad, the media will turn to Sony is doomed mode. Utterly pathetic. Gaming media is a total joke. LOL. Some guys try, but unfortunately get over shadowed by the clear bias sites. Aww well let the jokes continue. I always laugh at the articles that spew from them. LOL.
I treated the Kinect stuff like it was a comedy bit and it worked cause I lulz so hard I had tears in my eyes.
You´re shittin me? Better than last year YES. But that was easy, it still sucked mayor ass. You know what, tell me, realistically, what exactly other than GoW 3 and Halo HD are you looking foward 2? Like seriously, not "that was kinda cool but i prob wont buy it in this economy" but "OMG I WANT THAT NOW" kind off thing. NOTHING. IM SO FKIN PISSED! Oh look, its Halo AGAIN and Gears AGAIN. Oh look i can yell at my tv now...WHY IN THE [email protected] would i want to do this? Oh look IPTV that I CANT USE BECAUSE I LIVE OUTSIDE US!!! [email protected] YOU! sory guys, i really got my hopes up.
I got really excited when they ended it by saying "a new trilogy" and then they showed master chief. I shit myself. You kidding me? How is this NEW? Yeah, it's knew for my god daughter who was born this past fall, but for everyone else in the gaming world, 4 of anything isn't new. Give me a break. I was let down big time by the E3 conference. The Kinect stuff is cool, but those rail type games are going to get old real quick. Thank god Gears 3 is coming out to hold me over. Also, BF3. This is the single reason why I manned up and bought a PS3 as well.
Are you serious? That was the biggest pile of shit I've ever seen. It's a tie with last year as being the worse.
Much agreed! Who did this presentation impress? It was Multiplats for 45 mins, kinect for 30, then you had fable, halo remake and halo 4. Sorry, I am not impressed.
They just shot themselves in the foot with the conference. The moment they started with the hardcore games at the beginning, I knew there was going to be lots of Kinect stuff about halfway through. The conference was full of so many cringe moments. Other than Gears of War 3, they filled the rest of the conference with Kinect stuff. They made it clear that they are no longer interested in the hardcore...they found a new cash cow---the casuals, and they are going after them!
The Disneyland demo kids were the worst. I about died at the end of that. "Fist bump!"
I'm starting to debate whether or not to blacklist any site that appreciates Microsoft's conference. I don't agree. At all. M$ has made it clear to me they don't care about gaming any more and have decided on rail shooters and fighting games to be a brilliant alternative. I can't believe this crap. I'm done with 'ya, Microsoft.
Holy lord at the disagrees.
If they let me play with Darth vader in that starwars kinect i'm sold!
'Impresses' who ya trying to kid.............it sucked.
Casuals very impressed.
Casuals don't give a rats ass about E3.
in the short space of time following microsofts conference we've seen a lot of sites trying to defend this conference with one site reviewing it an 8.5. Maybe the media is more pro-xbox that what we realised.
Meh, I give it a "C" just for the heck of it. @news4geeks: "Maybe the media is more pro-xbox that what we realised." No, really?!
I would have been much more impressed if they just did a Powerpoint with embedded trailers.
Impresses???? Really??? Who exactly???? U sure have low standards.
I enjoyed all the core games then i enjoyed the first two games with kinect the crytek one and fable the journey then got bored.
Multiplat with timed maps, multiplats, Halo remake, more halo, multiplats with "kinect support" that could easily be done with a $5 microphone, Minecraft (okay, that's ONE surprise), kinect games, some TV stuff, some kinect stuff that isn't actually a part of any game.... I am NOT impressed.
"xbox play hardcore games" Sorry i have trouble finding them so few it's horrible .. Every kinect part was faked to the max ...
"Microsoft E3 Press Conference Impresses" Really? Is this a serious article? Really? Someone please tell me what I missed. Is there another MS conference scheduled for later in the week that no one knows about? Really? I just, I'm speechless...
Halo 4 Mass Effect 3 Gears 3 Star Wars MW3 Ghost recon Thats whats impressive
Nice try but no. I mean Star Wars would not look out of place on the Wii, oh hold on, I see where Microsoft are going now......
Halo4 (not even shown) and Gears3, well Forza and another Fable - the rest is multiplatform. Yeah, and Kinect has a Microphone. We got it. Quite impressive. Sure. /s
Impresses? Maybe if you're a child. I was really disappointed. Quite like Halo 4, but not as apart of a trilogy
LMMMFFAAOOOO!!!!!!!!!!! IMPRESSES???? have u seen this piece of shit? i feel sorry for u if u disagree...ur completely delusional
FIST BUMP! lol a complete disaster
AWFUL. AGAIN NO EXCLUSIVES =(
Gears of war 3, Forza 4, halo combat evolved anniversary, halo 4.
exactly... Gears Of War 3 allready know about it. Forza 4 yeah racing game again allready know about it. Halo 4 excited yes but halo being Milked so much now. NO new IP! NO new exclusives for the hardcore just kiddy games...
Halo Gears Forza Yeah... I'm shocked. C'mon it's all they have anymore. I'm getting quite tired of it. The ENTIRE E3 they have announced 2 non-kinect games. 2.
Halo 4, forza 4, and a bunch of kinect only games
Worse than last year, IMO. Nothing unexpected except maybe Minecraft. It was all Kinect. Bad Kinect.
Someone is either a total fanboy...or taking a check to write this article...i simply can't look at it any other way... i wrote this as a comment for one of the other articles so ill just paste it... C+ as a grade from me... I didn't think the conference was terrible...the "core" games they showed will be great games.... GEoW 3 Forza 4 Fable Halo CE Halo 4 these will all be great games no doubt...but its nothing new...we have seen it all before...Forza and the two Halo games are day 1 purchases for me without a doubt...but nothing MS showed at their conference floored me...i expected to see all the above games Showing games like MW3 does nothing for me either...it will probably be shown during Sony's conference as well...blah.. The new Crytek game...Ryse...uhh...maybe i missed the memo here (very possible)...but i didn't realize it would be a Kinect game...and that REALLY hurt my chances of purchasing the game...and killed my hype...i was distracted during that actual part of the conference...so i might have missed if they said it could also be played with a controller and no kinect...i can only hope... as for the rest of the Kinect games...nothing was shown that makes Kinect a must have for me yet...and that sucks...because i want to want it...same with PS Move... overall it was a downer...they left the door WIDE open for Sony...
and nintendo. They are going to run away with it again @below ds,3ds,wii, wii 2 exclusives cant be stopped layton dq monsters joker 2, kirby 4ds for the ds xenoblade, zelda, last story, kirby for the wii 3ds exclusives and wii 2 exclusives. You cant beat that
well Nintendo will have a new console to show off...so that could IMO go either way for them... i think Sony is in the prime position now...a couple NEW exclusives...or at least something we have not really SEEN yet would seal the deal IMO...as long as they don't totally FUBAR the NGP/Vita/PSP2 reveal...they should be golden... but Sony has been known to FUBAR things...
This man should have 0 disagrees. We all know new hardware reveals are the biggest things possible for E3. They're the most exciting announcements. It's like an unspoken rule. Nintendo's going to have 4 platforms, and announce exclusives for each one. That's a lot of games people. Sony would win if Nintendo wasn't revealing a new system, but they are, so that's pretty much a default win.
It was quite lackluster. Nothing really new coming out. All their real focus was on Kinect titles and Kinect enables mulitplats. Cant wait for Sonys Conference!
I'm not impressed at all. They are trying to force people to buy Kinect. I won't! The lack of emphasis on the hardcore gamers was disgusting.
I was laughing all the way through the actors demonstrations of Kinect, it'd take a real die-hard xbot to find much to be positive in that conference...
"Impresses" Just shows what a bunch of casuals the 360 crowd is lmao
D- show for me 3 hardcore exclusives from franchises that are beaten to death already But an A+ for............ LIGHT SABER ON!!!!!!! GET THEM DADDY...........
...Really?! Scripted fist-bumping and saccharine kids must be the new definition of cool. Now I know.....
I'm going to be honest. If I didn't know that Big N and Sony were up next, I would be worried about the state of gaming based off of the MS con.
Conference was underwhelming. VERY underwhelming.
No arguments here ... XBOX conference sucks, same like last year. The difference is there's no Cirque Du Soleil performance and free XBOX 360 systems for the media. So where are those XBOX fanboys that always keep saying ... "JUST WAIT BECAUSE MICROSOFT ALWAYS ANNOUNCED GOOD STUFF ON E3 NOT LIKE SONY WHO USUALLY ANNOUNCED THEIR GAMES EARLY". Well, well today is E3 ... no difference. XBOX should acquire first party developers to create games for them and not SKYPE. All of them are multiplatform games ... i need Japanese RPG, Sports games, Adventure games or New IP. I cannot wait for SONY and Nintendo E3 press conference.
Disagree? Cannot face the truth that MS left the XBOX 360 fans, and shoved their Kinect Games to all of you? Goodluck playing your HALO Remake game by the end of the year ... while Nintendo and SONY owners are enjoying their system with new IP games, exclusive games and more games for their DSi and NGP. 6 months had already passed and no top notch exclusive games for 360. And MS is showing us HALO Remake this E3? C'mon now XBOX fans ... time to JUMP.
I am very disappointed! absolutely no surprises except halo trilogy. looking forward to the sony e3 show, which will have many first party surprises. ( NGP with a lot of games + PS3: Agent, God of War 4, Syphon Filter, Uncharted 3, The last Guardian, the Getaway, quanitc Dream`s new Game, Sly 4,Until Dawn, Puppeteer, EveryBody Dance,........................ ............................... ...................... and many more !!!! and nintendo has even more surprises to present. New Console + Games !!!
It Sucked Except For Forza 4, GeOW 3 & Ryse
'Impresses'? Yea right, Halo 4 saved them from being the worst conference ever, but it was still horrible.
Watching this conference really furthered my appreciation that Playstation exists.
Looks like my 360 will get a new coat of dust on it.
Besides Halo and minecraft it was bad, but the worst thing is what games have we got to look forward to next year on "just" 360.
I didn't see it. But I'm reading all of these impressions and comments and it seems like they let people down. I'm a ps3 user just so you know. I really hoped it would be good for all of the gamers. My buddy and I are gonna crack open some beers and watch the Sony show.
In my opinion Microsoft had too much of kinect in the conference however they did announce Halo 4 and the Remake which is something that 360 owners are dying to get their hands on.
I really need to quit coming to this site. In fact, I think it would serve N4G well to simply drop any news related to Microsoft.
