Xbox 360 Saves The Date For E3 2009

First out the door for this year's upcoming bigger, better, more fleshy E3 is Microsoft.

The story is too old to be commented.
JeffGUNZ3529d ago (Edited 3529d ago )

This is proof that microsoft has amazing surprises to come. My theory all along. I keep telling fanboys of sony that E3 is when Microsoft delivers, and look who signed up first.

SpoonyRedMage3529d ago

It's obvious they're eager to announce stuff. I'm glad they are as well I'm sick of fanboy flamebait "news atricles" saying how the 360 is going down because they have no exclusives.

Captain Tuttle3529d ago (Edited 3529d ago )

It happens every year Spoony. And then the list wars really ramp up.

La Chance3529d ago (Edited 3529d ago )

are the most secretive when it comes to there year lineup.i just sit back and watch all the fanboy comments knowing that somebody's going to be eating up his words like each and every single year.

Race Pro , Star Ocean 4 and Ninja Blade were all officially announced/revealed by MSFT less than a year ago and are all coming out this month.Thats how MSFT work.
Same goes for the biggest game of 2008 Gears 2 , announced 6 months before launch.
And look at Forza 3 its obviously coming out this year and MSFT havent said a word....when was GT5 announced ?

Let the fanboys talk and say the same stuff EACH AND EVERY SINGLE YEAR.

I am not a fanboy or biased in any matter but I got to say that Sonyfanboys are something else LoL.

But they are going to flood this thread sadly.

Aquanox3529d ago (Edited 3529d ago )

Microsoft is used to take the bait at the beginning of the year and end up triumphant. They aren't the kind of company that sits and wait and this is proof that they have something special prepared.

Don't think, by the way, that this will be the only event with important announcements. They will probably have a gamers day too before E3.

DeadlyFire3529d ago

I don't see anything special from Microsoft. One or two games. Not as many as Sony, but E3 is bound to deliver something though. Since 720 is coming in 2010 its likely to be at least unveiled at E3 along with Halo Chronicles(Gearbox title) on 720 in 2010 and other things. Right? I doubt the Halo title will be unveiled before the other Halo coming this year launches though. So that is likely set for 2010 E3 as a surprise. Look shocked will ya. :P

GT 5 announced in 2005. Set for 2009/2010 release. I know 4-5 years seems like alot of development time. The game is going to be pure perfection though. Froza 3 is coming and again it will be slapped together within a year. Hopefully it doesn't get sloppy like the EA NFS series.

SuperM3529d ago

Guys if you are looking for more 360 exclusives for 09 then E3 might just be a little to late for that. Last year MS only announced casual games on e3 that actually made it out that year. So whatever MS has up their sleeves for 09 is likely to be announced around GDC. And whatever they are showing at E3 is probably going to be 2010 release date, unless they are announcing more casual games.

Can someone tell why in the name of the queen of england, do ps fanboys think the 360 has no games coming out this year!?
I mean seriously? anyone with half a brain understands ms likes to announce their games close to their release dates, not like 4 years prior to their release date.
hmmmm, come to think of it, no wonder people call the ps3 the 'delay station'
2009 will end and the 360 will still be ahead of the ps 3 and we'll get the same 'next year is the year of the ps3' comments. shoot man, i can't wait for the 'next gen is the gen of the ps4' comments.

Powertesties3529d ago

MS goes to a huge length for its gamers. No one can doubt this. Sony fanboys are always out for blood and it is rather shocking to see them out in force on n4g.

MS is far from being down and out and the system is far from being behind. In a recent interview (game informer) with the man that lead development for both CPU's (PS3 and 360) at IBM stated that they are equal processors and the systems are fairly equal. That is a huge statement.

Moving on, MAN OH MAN, I hope that they rumored firmware updates for the PS3 are true! That would solve just about all of my problems with the PS3. Come on SOny!

Chubear3529d ago

They got a big one for the 360 fanbase, just keep watching.

1. Crackdown 2/ 1.5, whatever. Better have most emphasis on single player.
2. Footage of ODST.
3. Action/Adventure title that was mentioned last week.
4. Further justifying why you should give MS your well earnt money to interract with your friends online even though nothing major will be introduced and never will to the service.
5. No sign of a entry of the Freelancer franchise because they actually cancelled Freelancer 2.
6. The ability to dress up as Master Chief in Dead Rising 2.
7. More exclusive (developers not catering to all fans) DLC.
8. Halfassed Rare game.

Yep. Gooooooo Microsoft.

panasonic233529d ago (Edited 3529d ago )

do i sense fear is an emotional response to threats and danger.

Cajun Chicken3529d ago

Not really, because MS decided to shed all that was good on the XBOX on the 360 except for Halo and that annoys me. So many decent franchises that could be bought back, but they won't and give middleware stuff instead and expect people to buy the hype because MS says 'its good for you'.

Well, sorry, but developer wise you have Sony with;

1. Killzone 2 - GGs, the rebirth of Killzone, tbh, looks great, watch a developer blossom in action
2. Uncharted 2 - Naughty Dog has been one of the only console developers in the world who haven't let down the hype with any of their previous games despite going through two franchises already and is highly respected in the industry.
3. Insomniac - Another developer who fails to let down, but IMO excels at action/adventure games, and a new R&C game is on the way.
4. Team ICO haven't announced anything yet
5. Studio Cambridge haven't done anything for 3 years
6. Sony Bend making Syphon Filter again, since relearning from PSP series
7. Multiplats will be equal on PS3
8. Twisted Metal PS3
9. God of War III will steal E3 if out Q4

Thats a heck of a lot for Bungie, Rare and Lionhead to counterract, harsh reality, sorry.
But I'll be playing Crackdown 2, ODST and Alan Wake when they come out.

Xbots play games3529d ago (Edited 3529d ago )

A little over four months. Can't wait! By then there will be only 200 more blogs of Xbox 360 has no exclusives blah blah blah. Last E3's suprise Final Fantasy ending was classic.

The speculation of what will be announced will dominate the blogs and forums for a least 2 months leading up to the event.

My Fantasy E3 wish list would be:

Footage of the Peter Jax Halo Game
Actual Footage of Alan Wake
RARE makes a game called GoldenEye 360 (But I'll settle for a PD)
Footage of APB from the Crackdown boys
Call of Duty 6 footage
Ghost Recon sequel footage
Rainbow Six sequel footage
Rare return to Killer Instinct
Half Life 3 or another episode
Portal 2
Sega actually doing another Panzer Dragoon
Another Elder Scrolls
Burger Time announced for Xbox Arcade
Hydro Thunder announced for Xbox Arcade
Actual Footage of Duke Nukem Forever
Prey 2
EA & Burnout Boys bring back one of my all-time fave PS2 games..Rumble Racing!
Square Enix announcing a next gen Final Fantasy Tactics

For the other systems

Pilot Wings for the Wii

For the PS3?

The announcement of Shadow of the Collossus 2 would literally make me run to Gamestop and buy a system

or maybe the entire Point Blank series

Smileys3529d ago (Edited 3529d ago )

I agree.
I want info on Half-Life 2 Episode 3 and Portal 2!!!
Golden Eye 360 and Shadow of the Colossus 2 would be epic!!

LeonSKennedy4Life3529d ago

Episode 3...definitely.

Well, let's look at potential PS3 announcements also...because it seemed like you were wondering:

- Team Ico project
- Twisted Metal PS3
- God of War III (more in-game footage)
- Ratchet & Clank Future: ???
- Uncharted 2 gameplay trailer
- War Devil gameplay trailer
- MAG gameplay trailer
- Bioshock 2 (obviously for 360 and PC also)
- Motorstorm PSP
- LittleBigPlanet PSP
- Gran Turismo 5 gameplay *fap*
- New HOME stuff
- New IP's
- Re-announcement of 8 Days (I freakin' wish)

Yeah...I'm with you on Hydro Thunder! That's one of my favorite PS1 games! (N64 also)

Smileys3529d ago

If MAG works out it will be legendary.
Im not sure about Bioshock 2. The first one was awesome not sure how they can make Bioshock 2 better.

Cajun Chicken3529d ago

Point Blank. YES. YES. YES.

I'd prefer Criterion and EA to remake Road Rash, myself.

Kain813529d ago

add Syphonfilter
warhawk 2
Hardware 2
jak 4

Xbots play games3529d ago (Edited 3529d ago )

I'm with Cajun..I would spit my drink out if they announced a new Road Rash @ E3 (ahh the memories)

@ Smiley

And even though I was going to sleep during PS3's E3 showing, that MAG footage was a great ending. That trailer with every dying except for one team and then they call in the reinforcements was cool as hell. I won't lie! If they pull of a game where everyone parachutes in a 256 people are fightring to keep their team alive with incredible graphics and gameplay? Wow..that would truly be the next gen game of the decade.

(On a side note) PS3 should bring the ol' SSX back to it glory days. LOl..Remember Coolboarders?

*pulls out PS2 and dusts it off to look at my ridiculously huge PS2 game collection..sees Kings Field 2 and laughs out loud..while throwing it back into the closet*

LMAO @ NMC2007 post

LeonSKennedy4Life3529d ago

I want Criterion to make the next SSX though...

They have the ability.

Graphics Whore3529d ago

Yeah they said the same thing about E3 2008 and the only announcement was FF going multi-plat. Overall the 360 had a pretty stale year in 2008, let's hope they actually mean it in 2009.

To elaborate: Gears of War 2 didn't come out as good as it could, especially with the massive online problems that weren't fixed for literally months and Fable 2 was a little short was pretty good, better than the original but Peter Molyneux just keeps overshooting and over hyping his products. That's pretty much it, no really big impressive line-up in 2008.

I'm starting to think that the Xbox 360 is just becoming the multi-plat console, no alot of people are dead set on exclusives anymore it's becoming more of people just wanting to play next-gen games regardless of status.

NMC20073529d ago

that one announcement tore the fabric of fanboy time and space throughout the internet universe, I will never forget this gem.

Smileys3529d ago (Edited 3529d ago )

Wow PS3 fanboy much?
Viva Pinata 2 and Banjo-Kazooie were both excellent games.
Plus Left4Dead and a bunch of great Arcade games such as Braid and Castle Crashers. I don't really play consoles that much but I bet there was a lot more.
Both consoles had a bunch of games come out last year.

Xbots play games3529d ago

Nice dose of fiction..but, Gears 2 and Fable 2 (G4TV's X-PLAY GOTY) came out great and the fans loved em'. Disgruntled PS3 fans can continue to bash but 360 is Far from just being a Multi-plat..Footage of Mass Effect 2 will most definately be there too.

ukilnme3529d ago

Let's not forget about this little gem after the FFXIII announcement. It's a personal favorite.

Absolutely pathetic.

MicroSony4Life3529d ago

and you say you aren't a Sony fanboy.

90% of you comments are on a 360 articles and you always have some BS remark about Microsoft.

Get ofF your knees and take Sony's Mandingo out of your mouth and you can also take GWAVES wii wii out of your a$$.

Graphics Whore3529d ago

An Xbox 360 fanboy tries to call out some one out and fails. Every company has faults, you're just to blind to be constructive.

MicroSony4Life3529d ago (Edited 3529d ago )

Yes I do have a 360 and I do play gears of war 2 online allot, but do I think the game is perfect and was sent by the gods NO, so you fail.

You say the every company has there faults, so tell me Graphic Whore what is wrong with the PS3, cause i had my PS3 for six months and I love playing Resistance 2 and Metal gear solid 4, and guess what I bought fall out 3 for the PS3 and not the 360. My only complaint is PSN, and not because it suck but because it really doesn't do it for me. So I guess cause I spend more time on Live that makes me a xbot,and the fact that i play allot of single player games on the ps3 does not count.

Don't try to compare your self to me cause I don't go on every PS3 article just to bash SONY and try to convince people to buy the PS3.

Oh I almost forgot, I cant wait to see your unbias (Sarcasm) Halo Wars Review that you promise.

Graphics Whore3529d ago (Edited 3529d ago )

I like Halo Wars and I'm liking it so far. The controls are great everything else is average. deal with it lol

If you don't like criticism than I suggest you do your own review, you won't find any better.
