Microsoft at CES 2012: Nothing to see here?

Expect Microsoft, in its last ever Consumer Electronics Show, to end its long run with more of a whimper than a bang. (CES 2012, Industry, Microsoft, PC, Xbox)

Hope its not all talk, lets wait and see, E3 still a bit far, I know some of u don't want next gen soon but me, I'm tired of my 360/Ps3, bring something new and exciting...

PS3/X360 combined came off the best year ever in 2011..... i think 2013-2014 is the Best time frame for PS4/X720

Im not particularly ready for games to get gimped because they need to learn new tech.

I'm pretty sure the NextBox and PS4 will use existing tech, just with upped RAM and better GPUs. Backward compatibility will be fully functional on both. The PS4 will likely use the Cell again, so only the lazy devs that didn't take the time out to utilize it won't be able to transition as easy. Both should have full BC though.

The Keynote was fucking terrible, the worst one of them all. Nothing new was shown......

....except you know, sesame street Kinect.

My money is that Microsoft will show off a new touch tablet, babble about Windows 7 Phone (lol), and brag about Kinect sales. If gamers get anything (big "if") it will be a new trailer for an already-announced game like Alan Wake DLC, Halo 4, or Fable Kinect.

Fable Kinect...totaly forgot about that game

The problem with the game is it goes against logic, why would Theresa want help off someone to get to the Spire....she can just teleport there like she did in Fable 2 and 3

Protip: anything with the "Fable" name that came after "Fable - The Lost Chapters" is not worth your time.

'Protip: anything with the "Fable" name that came after "Fable - The Lost Chapters" is not worth your time'

Protip: Everything with the name 'Fable' is worth every Fable fans time.

what was the other Kinect game?! the one that looks like the movie 300....i forgot what its called, what happen to that game??? the trailer to it looked good!!!

The Crytek Kinect game? Yeeeeah that one got pushed to "next gen consoles". Too bad, Kinect buyers.
EVILDEAD360  +   1415d ago
Actually that's a great thing for Kinect buyers and actual Xbox gamers.

Crytek on next gen hardware is 100 times better than them on current consoles.

Ryse is easily a shoe-in 720 launch game for Kinect 2.0.

ces isnt all about gaming. if they dont mention anything about the nextbox doesnt mean anything. they have other products they need to talk about as well. ces is mainly for tech enthusiast. tablets,phones etc...

Anyone else getting the feeling that MS secretly wants to purchase Sesame Street.

Only for the inevitable Super Smash Brothers Sesame Street Kinect 360 Edition, with Master chief, Banjo Kazooie and Joanna Dark costars.
