Much better job than last year, mixed the hardcore game with the party style Kinect ones. Star wars looks interesting.

iamnsuperman2720d ago (Edited 2720d ago )

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

BoneIdle2720d ago

The on rails could be a problem all right but ill still get it just to be able to use The Force !!

zootang2720d ago

Journalists are becoming really out of touch. Though thinking about it, they have for a while now.

metsgaming2720d ago

yes we want games like battlefront 3 not that sad excuse for a game !

Biggest2720d ago

I was extremely impressed by Tomb Raider. But that has nothing to do with Microsoft.

I_find_it_funny2720d ago (Edited 2720d ago )

impresses?

i wasnt impressed at all, only Halo teaser did it for me

DatNJDom812720d ago

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.

Lekumkee2720d ago

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.

Masta_fro2720d ago (Edited 2720d ago )

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.

egidem2720d ago

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!

DeadIIIRed2720d ago

The Disneyland demo kids were the worst. I about died at the end of that. "Fist bump!"

NeoBasch2720d ago

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.

Jocosta2719d ago

Holy lord at the disagrees.

If they let me play with Darth vader in that starwars kinect i'm sold!

DJMarty2720d ago

'Impresses' who ya trying to kid.............it sucked.

SKUD2720d ago

Casuals very impressed.

Pedobear Rocks2720d ago

Casuals don't give a rats ass about E3.

news4geeks2720d ago

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.

Godmars2902720d ago (Edited 2720d ago )

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?!

MassOnesumis2720d ago

I would have been much more impressed if they just did a Powerpoint with embedded trailers.

Fel082720d ago

Impresses???? Really??? Who exactly???? U sure have low standards.

omi25p2720d ago

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.

SilentNegotiator2720d ago

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.

Redempteur2720d ago

"xbox play hardcore games"

Sorry i have trouble finding them

so few it's horrible .. Every kinect part was faked to the max ...
