BT writes: Microsoft’s E3 conferences are normally very formulaic. They start with a pre-rendered trailer for a game, then they follow with social app and sports games talk (usually with whatever professional or former professional athlete they could get on short notice) until everyone is groaning in the aisle. This is then followed by a Kinect demonstration that goes on for far too long (Hello, random celebrity) and then finishes with a few trailers and tidbits that we might have cared about, but could have been seen on the show floor or outside of the press conference.
This year though, eight years after the Xbox 360 was announced, we have a new console. More importantly, we have a new console that’s already been revealed, had its technical specs and social implications revealed, and even has 15 exclusives lined up for it. So surely this press conference will be a change-up right?… Right?
No. Or at least, don’t expect much of a change from tradition.
