You've read Loot Ninja's Live Blog of Microsoft's CES Keynote, now here's the impressions. What a waste of time. No product announcements, no talk of what we can expect over the next year. It was an hour long boast session. "Look what we did".
If they want something game related wait for GDC. This is more of Windows Software. Surface and Sync was cute. Zune stuff was hot too. Oh, and Mediaroom!
I think you expect too much from people
Well, MS said they are going to announce something big at this CES conference.. I guess that was the BT deal and the more movies coming.. I don't know why someone would consider this "big news". I wasted almost half an hour listening to a guy (not bill gates) that sounds looks and acts like a car salesman more than a big shot at the biggest software company in the world.. I think MS deserve better representatives. They need more people like Bill Gates..
@Darkiewonder: you mean "If they want something game related primarily aimed at other developers with game production and designed wait for GDC"? cuz with out the whole dev aimed thing is basically "wait for E3"
the confrence was alright thought the guitar hero scene at the end was extremely lame considering we didnt actually get to see bill play. Thought it was quite LAME indeed. The tech stuff was pretty impressive so really can't complain. Can't say i expected any more than that.
You idiot. Microsoft introduced the original Xbox at CES, and they spok about Xbox live for over 20 mins. If you had any idea bill end the conference with Guitar Hero. Your a retard fanboy.... 8=====>
Lets face it, Warner Brothers (by going Blu) gave Toshiba and Microsoft both black eyes. It puts both companies in compromising positions competively (the next Xbox will likely have a Blu-ray drive).
The whole point wasn't gaming, but they did tread some ground I already knew about.
It's really a chain reaction that will cause the 360 to have a bad year compared to 2007.
wait for GDC thatll be gun. By the way when is it?
Feb. 18th ;o
Feb I think
CES isn't E3 or any other gaming event. :| I thought you guys were well informed gamers.
The fools that run it SPAM there crap here and comment on it with all there friends to make it have buzz when it's utter CRAP!!! They turn stuff around and post false information and they should be banned from this site for good.
Would be a good place to introduce the much speculated box Ultimate? And why did bill end with Guitar Hero, oh yea because CES is not a gaming event. Your an IDIOT 8====>
Learn how to spell before insulting people.
Just trying to inform you that CES has always involved gaming. http://www.gamespot.com/xbo... http://kotaku.com/341407/sl...
This is CEC, and is about Electronic. But i was actually expecting a new Xbox360 from MS. Maybe the games will come tomorrow
Not even a gaming only front, there was next to nothing announced in the PC or tech front. Overall, it was very underwhelming.
Microsoft did announce a bunch of things, but nothing that gamers would care about. The announcements are just some new deals with movie studios to bring movie and TV contents to XBL. That's all. No new games. No new Xbox. No new Xbox upgrade. No new Xbox attachment. Nothing. Xbox 360 is still a game console. Microsoft should just forget the movies and TV. Just bring on more games. Just have to wait for the GDC (Game Developer Conference) in February then.
What else is Loot Ninja going to say. Its like PSU having an opinion. They had a announcment and they made it/them. Two bit Propaganda bloggers, media losers and Sony fanboys hyped this sh*t up its their fault not MSFT's lol. CES will probably show some new engines and tech demo's of possible new games or progress with 360 AAA titles we already know are comming thats it amoung other technoligies in other markets.
This is what you get when you raise expectations to overwhelming levels.
Warner Bros killed it. It would have been even worst if Microsoft announced the Ultimate, then next day - Warner drops HD-DVD. Sony fanboys here would laugh so hard at that they'd need oxygen masks; whilst 360 fanboys just close the browser and avoid the Internet for some time. HD-DVD owners = mass suicide if not mass riots.
I saw this today and found it fitting...
The huge rooms MSFT and Epic are in will come into play starting tomorro.
Maybe tomorrow or the day after...
ms never said anything bout BIG annoucement...the interweb did.
people got this Mixed up with E3, I swear.... I bet you if it wasn't that stupid 360 ultimate RUMOR, you wouldn't have much people so keen on the event.... Now everyone feels like a let down because there was no 360 ultimate.. Very similar when Sony fans hypes something that was never to be, especially like them firmware updates, only to be dissappointed. Sorry but "VIDEO GAMES" DO NOT DOMINATE Consumer Electronic Shows.
E3 isn't the only show where info about games is revealed. People do not confuse E3. No one was expecting a New Xbox but Sony fanboys. MSFT has said many and many times they will not put HD drives in the 360 not hard to understand. It was the fanboys being rabid idiots and media trying to get hits like most the other Bullshit thats been posted due to the only real news that came yesterday about Warner.
That was all a rumor hotshot nothing was ever a confirmed thing.
May be they scrap the idea of an ultimate. I mean, they denied the rumor just after Warner bro's annoucenment, even though the rumor has been going on for a few days. Is it a coincidence that they denied the rumor a few days late?
chill with the conspiracies...Give it up, go to bed.
Don't you think it is odd that MS denied the rumor after Warner bro's announcement, not before? And I just raised a possibility, can't u tolerate opinions?
Or maybe there never was no 360 Ultimate. I would not be surprised if it was a Sony Droid that started the damn thing to begin with.
cry more...we dont care
talk about going out with a wimper thought for sure we'd get something big form ol Bill Gates..
microsoft has lost their mojo.
OMG!!!! BILL GATES STRAPPED ON A GUITAR HERO III XBOX GUITAR AND DIDN'T EVEN PLAY IT!!!!! THIS IS THE MOST IMPRESSIVE MICROSOFT CES CONFERENCE YET!!!!!!! ........hehehehe X-bots....
" Meus Renaissance - 18 Minutes ago PM Track Ignore10 - Warner Bros killed it. It would have been even worst if Microsoft announced the Ultimate, then next day - Warner drops HD-DVD. Sony fanboys here would laugh so hard at that they'd need oxygen masks; whilst 360 fanboys just close the browser and avoid the Internet for some time. HD-DVD owners = mass suicide if not mass riots." AHAHA post of the day
X360P to be announced (P for portable). Next year maybe.
jajajaj they were waiting to xbox 360 ultimate so they could bashing microsoft 'cause the format war...PWNED!! LOL! JAJA... Nice presentation Microsoft EDIT: i'm sorry armyless and rondemuerte my english is not the best but i try to explain better to both of you so you kinder garden kids can undertand. Well this people (loot ninja) were hoping to microsoft to reveal the "xbox 360 Ultimate", remember? the xbox 360 with HD-DVD drive built in? that you sonykids were bashing after BR win the format war. Ok loot ninja were "oh i hope microsoft reveal xbox 360 ultimate so we can't star bashing the new sku with hd-dvd and feed the sonykids around the wolrd"...but nothing happen and they got bored and the rest of the sony fanboys around the world couldn't bash anything. rondemuerte looks like you know spanish so: te jodieron!! jaja esperabas la gran noticia para burlarte de microsoft pero tendras que irte a burlar de ken kuratagi nuevamente.
until MS pulled a "Well we got Disney and MGM, which are bluray supporters, selling content on XBL" Then all the fanboys went silent and all the sudden started attacking digital downloads. Surprises suprises...Ms had a "WILDCARD." Maybe there weren't all that close with HD-DVD after all, if so they are sleeping with both, now that it's all out.
I think he was trying to write something coherent....but you can never really tell with X-bots..... @ segasage When it comes to digital downloading it works perfectly well with music because people get to download that single song that they like instead of having to purchase the whole CD that includes 9 other songs that they didn't really care for.....but when it comes to movies people would rather go out and buy the disc because they can watch it whenever and wherever they want, and the disc includes extras such as interviews, previews/trailers, bloopers, and deleted scenes or alternate endings, and that's why most people think it's a better investment and they actually get their money's worth, and also the quality!!!....with digital downloads you just rent the thing for a while and have no real ownership over the content!!! it's a rip off!! and that's why it hasn't really picked up.....and probably won't be for the next few years........you gotta remember not everybody goes shopping over the internet.....most people feel more comfortable going to a retail store to get what they want.....
They got some pretty good ideas coming out, i would like to see how they play with the computer/tv shows episode dl go. Just don't tax the people hard....
It sucked so bad because MS probably wanted to introduce 360 Ultimate with a built in HD-DVD drive and then they heard about Warner, etc. go Blu exclusive, the rest is history. Poor Billyboy
ya it was sure lacking that wow factor 4 sure they woulda done more with the touch screen or something but not enough time to set it up due to the WB announcements coming has they were ready to roll out the next day with the new hd dvd 360? Also makes sense with the bit about the iptv needing special 360's from the provider... for a last farewell from the founder of M$ it was sure lacking... imo suspiciously so.
Maybe they did have something under the sleeves... until the WB announcement ;)
Microsoft Corp. has run out of programmable lines to feed through the wavelengths of the slaves they have abducted. Those who are and were former slaves to the Microsoft Corporation have seeked redemption at Sony Electronics. $niper
Why don't you go back to your own little creepy world of delusion
The only delusional world that exists in the minds of gamers worldwide is within the XBOX Live online network. Inconsistent connectivity has worn thin on the patience of many XBOX Live owners. This is one of many blunders by Microsoft that has made several gamers convert to the free online network for PLAYSTATION® 3. With a superior and stable online network available to all users at no charge, there is no reason to deny PLAYSTATION® 3 as your primary source of online gaming. Everything that Dark Sniper says is gospel. There's no debating these facts as there are many articles to prove Dark Sniper's claims. $niper
THAT THEIR "BIG" ANNOUNCEMENT FOR THE XBOX PLATFORM WAS THE INTRODUCTION OF THE ULTIMATE 360 SKU. KIND OF SAD WHEN YOU THINK ABOUT IT,6 TO 9 MONTHS OF PLANNING THEN POOF!WARNER BROTHERS SHUT EVERYTHING DOWN.
the presentation did seem to be lacking any real news. A lot of talk about the future but what about now? I think microsoft are betting too much on digital distribution/download content right now. Its good to have the option but i don't think it will sell consoles
... but please... we all knew entertainment electronics was going the way of DLC. I wasn't hedging my bet on BR or HD_DVD. I just want the best cheapest for consumers. Wasn't expecting much from a CES since vidgames are a small portion of that (so don't understan what everyone was expecting). I hope to god another SKU isn't coming... unless it's in the handheld variety. Another type of 360 console would be redundantly repetitive... and waste resources I would like see implemented elsewhere.
They are about to bomb
They are going to announce the 360 HD-DVD ed... wait... scratch that! They are going to announce the 360 Blu-ray ed... err... scratch that! They announced that Microsoft rules! Lame article but I guess it's true.
