for Final Fantasy was extremely last minute and they decided to save Bungie for shows later in the year. Then again you would think it would have had to of been last minute or someone would have leaked the information on the net.

I guess the SE deal was last minute because they didn't even started to develop on the 360

It took place just three days before the E3 conference.

probably to target a good portion of the teen and 20 somethings audience. Just a guess.

microsoft is said to have cut a lot from its conference in interest of having a more compact straight to the point kinda thing

i guess having the bungie thing in their pocket gives them some ammo in the future, anytime things look bad they can go "oh look what we have"

especially considering the online component of halo3, one can only imagine what they will improve and add

i'll be the first to say that i'm not a halo fan but the fact is it has one of the best, if not the best online systems and community of any console game

Yeah apparently they cut up to 60 minutes out of their press conference.

Leipzig and PAX will be very interesting. :)

"So that's what we're going to do and I think we're smart. I had so many people come to me and say 'look at that, that's a measure of growth and maturity of Microsoft - the fact that you have the best show, the best collection of products and you didn't even have to show Halo'

that there was a chance that the announcement would be pulled.

If you followed the SI arg he said stuff like
expect delays
please remain calm

MS wanted to focus on the new xbox features and games releasing this year, I'm sure MS will announce a bunch of new info on upcoming 2009 releases soon.

He probably was on the phone to sony trying to flog his dead hourse and wife.
