Microsoft showed some lovely clips of some new tittles, but one of the great displays was the new IPs and functions with Kinect. Here are some strong take aways from the Microsoft Press:
"What a way to start E3"- true, it can only get better!
IMO E3 starts when the Sony conference starts. The only game I've seen so far that I KNOW I'm getting Day 1 is Saints Row: The Third. I'm ready to add Agent to that list when Sony talks about it. EDITl Oh shit! Saints Row: The Third on G4 right NAAOOW!
I still don't subscribe to the YOU ARE THE CONTROLLER thinking .... BUT !!! .... KUDOS to MS for realizing what Kinect will be good for ... as an add-on (and not replacement to our beloved controller!) ALSO, The object scan looks cool ... I'm HOPING and ASSUMING that the actual object and avatar shown was indeed generated on the spot ... AND NOT pre-created (scripted).
^^Yeah, their definetly improving Kinect implementation with a variety of different games...but I've seen NOTHING that would convince me to spend $300+ on a 360/Kinect bundle.
"What a way to start E3" indeed ¬¬
What a way to start E3....with a huge bomb. F^ck the Kinect-box 360. Not even Halo 4 could save that shit conference. It got golf claps at the end.
bored me almost to death
same here. Even the MW3 demo was...meh. Halo4 trailer was awesome and I'm glad about the remake. I'm sure there are those who haven't play it yet. But too much kinect stuff, which is fine but I expect more core stuff. As a result, pretty boring conference. :-/
i actually liked the MW3 demo until i realized that all that war, planes, bombs, were just scripted. when i seen the guy go up the latter with no hands i m like its 2011 and they still make the old pc style games ME3 voice stuff was cool, faster and just better but reading lines NOT FUN bing search was cool the rest suck
the actual games were ok .. just cant figure out why Fable was in First person. i understand the whole Kinect thing with it . But come on now no real hero in the game just some one part of a tribe
Yeah it seems Fable is an on-rails-shooter from now on.
It was lame. Nuff said.
Free pass yet again.
All 3rd party games, except for all the exclusive Kinect mini games. And a new dashboard? 3 revisions in 5 years. That bad huh?
My God...did these "journalists" actually watch the same E3 conference that the rest of us did?...
but ... but ... you can hug mickey !!!
I'd imagine there were "gift bags" handed out after the MS Conference.
no they didn't LOL @ Geoff Keighly he just said LIVE i don't know why you need kinect for ME3 voice, i am going to ask microsoft when they come on stage,WOW its about damn time someone in the media said it
Stephen Totilo of Kotaku gave MS a B. That's his opinion, but he must have a high grade curve or something.
E3 hasn't started yet. Whats that you say? Microsoft? Who is that? *cough*.... R.I.P
Sesame street and Disney! Yay! Hope I'm tall enough for those rides!
embarrassing show really - lesson learned: bad peripherals combined with bad acting cant go right.
lol buhh buh buh we hazz teh hallozzz...LMFAOO!!! absolutely terrible conference
for me there really werent any "WOW" moments that made it stand out
What a conference for all those gamers who got MS where it stands today with the x360. Could there even be a worse insult?
Are some of these sites just names for MS PR depts? Provengamer.com.Never heard of you until right now and I dislike you already.An idiot or collection of them? Shite apart from Minecraft.
If u actually check out the site, you will see that the site was started by three Sony fans. Also check out my previous comment
