weak ass conference.
I want to defend them but...underwhelming. I said it yesterday - showed most of their cards at E3. While Fable III does look wonderful, it was all Lionhead.
Unfortunate. Fable 3 will appeal to fans of the series, and I think that is news. No price cut announced? That sucks. We know its coming though
No price cut was a big bummer. I mean, just that would have been okay. But...not even that. =/
I'm not sure what you were expecting, Microsoft already said they weren't having a big conference. The was basically Lionhead showing off their new game. I'm thrilled at the prospect of Fable III.
A price cut or something. Some sort of Microsoft presence other than Lionhead. I don't think that's too much to expect considering Sony's presentation, regardless of how small they say it was going to be.
Microsoft just see Gamecom in a different light from Sony. Microsoft were never a big presence at Leipzeig either. TGS is only a month away.
I guess that's true, as they didn't have one last year at Leipzig. But this is Cologne, and they surely would have had wind of Sony's announcements...
MS please don't fight just keep quiet and go back home! Get your acts together and wait till the next event to try showing a better ground game and form! Sony just won the UFC heavy weight title but you'll have your turn again (or maybe you will)!
Thinks he knows everything about RPGs. That's why none of his games are good. He over promises and under delivers. EVERY TIME.
The last conference I saw that was that pathetic was E3 '08 when Nintendo sot us all in the face with their crazy antics on stage. This one, might just be a bit more pathetic.
Hey Guido, take some more heroin and calm down.
Fable 2 episodic is cool, but I already have Fable 2 so I won't be participating. But I like ideas like that. Fable 3 is a great announcement, because I'm always in favor of more Fable. But it wasn't even really a Microsoft press conference. It was more like a Lionhead press conference. I mean, you'd have thought Microsoft would have said something about the Elite replacing the Pro, and show off more Natal, o something. Oh well. I wonder if they'll make more of an appearance at TGS, because we already know that Sony is going to bring the heat to TGS.
once again, Sony wins
They probably won't do a price drop until they see what kind of impact the Ps3 slim has. If they notice their sales have dropped significantly... they will drop it soon! If not, you can almost guarantee that there will be a price drop for the holiday season.
That was pathetic, not showing up would probably have been better.
I have yet to meet someone that is waiting for a 360 price cut before they buy one. Most people I know seem to be ok with the 360 price point. Sony needed a price cut badly. even if PS3 doubles 360 sales it will take at least 10 months for Sony to catch up. I understand everyone would pefer a lower price but I have yet to hear a community out cry for one is all.
Fable 3 was a pretty big announcement. I think they knew Sony was going to make their conference look bad anyway with all they would announce, so they're saving their stuff for TGS. There's a lot of stuff that could've been shown from Microsoft's side.
Heroin and calm down are not good together. Maybe a blunt to keep my edge yet calm my nerves. That's what keeps it poppin'!
Maybe that's why they had their conference at a time when the majority of the US viewers would be sleeping.
M$ really did blow their load at E3, premature, just like the launch of their console. I knew they had a "shorter" conference but DAMN! I expected SOMETHING more. Is this a joke, were they joking on this site and there was more they just didn't mention? M$ could've at least reiterated some things from E3. Is anyone excited about this fable news, I hear it's a good series and whatnot and the first of these upcoming DLCs is free. I was really interested when the first game was being described (before it's release) during the original xbox days. Growing up and choosing paths that later effect your characters life and how people see you. It was an awesome concept but I never followed up on that as that's around the time i stopped gaming. I wonder how big these packs will be content wise. M$ really REALLY wants to get their feet planted in Japan so I expect TGS to be huge for them. Not as big as E3 obviously but still big. I guess sony just care more about each event (saving announcements for each) then having a preference of where to devote all their energy/budget
Fable 3 is nice, but overall kind of disappointing :( Now where's that person who was mouthing off about how Microsoft's conference would be shocking and reveal tones of new stuff?
To be fair to MS, they're in a good position at the moment, their year on year sales are up, Sony on the other hand have ground to make up, so you would expect more announcements and a bigger showing.
To be fair, even though MS is in a good position, it can always be better especially when your competition is constantly trying so hard to outdo you. Colour me a bit miffed that this was really all they had to offer their fans. Leipzig may not be E3 or TGS, but Sony sure put a good deal of importance on it and rest assured they will put even more emphasis on TGS since it's in their home territory. I can't play defender to this, it's just sad.
i'm not sure why they have to have a big presence at every event. is it because fanboys will carry on like the babies they are if they don't. N4G is just a pile of fanboy sh!t these days. it's a shame if it was sony you would be saying the exact same thing i just did. i am not defending anything here, just asking WTF is wrong with people these days? idiots.
somebody please spin this into a positive conference please lol good luck
some droids to spin this one like they spun Sony's E3 when they got completetly trumped by M$ ....
Yes, because Sony's Announcements were so much better. *Rolls Eyes* A worse version of the Playstation 3 which is cheaper, informed people of their stats which no one cares about, playstation home announcements which again no one cares about considering Home is Sims without the fun factor and iplayer which you can easily use on your PC instead. *Yawn* I'd rather have an exclusive which am I looking forward to thanks.
I know you are angry that Microsoft had a weak show but try not to take it out on Sony. It is not their fault you own a generic 360 console.
X what? ...mm.... strange, i dont remember something being called X aside X-men :/ must be my imagination.
Yes that is absolutley weak compared to sony's conference. Your a fanboy if you cant admit that to ur self.
New exclusive > Console remodel Great conference for me as I just finished Fable 2 days ago and I want more.
Shadow Complex + Netflix + Magic The Gathering > ALL except women
Is this a joke? Underwhelming at best.
Wow! Is that it? I log on this morning all syched up to get updated on the latest confrence which happens to be MICROSOFT, to be so underwhelmed by what I am reading. I guess it truly is time to buy a PS3.
The only announcement I needed was that Shadow Complex was available today. Went online from work to xbox.com, bought it. Will be there ready to play when I get home. Edit: And Netflix rocks! Only thing I can't figure out ... who are these people spending money on Avatars? OK, I bought a pair of dumbells to see what it felt like. Who needs an announcement when Avatar gear is selling.
hahaha they even wrote ENJOY. ROTFL LOL ASD LMAO
lol, that's what I thought too XD
"'We brought you the full list of Sony's announcements yesterday, and now here's the Microsoft version. Enjoy!'" "And that’s it!"
Europe is Microsoft biggest new markets after all Japan belongs to the PS3(and Wii actually quite allot of Wii) but in Europe it's a place to maake some ground. I hope this is a joke Microsoft probably has big announcements. Also... after E3 everyone was saying how bad Sony's was(I though both Sony and MS had equal shows) where are they now?
Well I heard a lot of "equally good shows", but Microsoft "won" because of a bit more celebs and Natal created a lot of buzz that lasted a while.
So I went to take a sh*t, I came back and their conference was over...
that was a good one
Your **** was probably more exciting than M$' conference, tbqh.
What about Natal? Or the rumored 360 price cut? Or any other games? Only Fable 3? For real?? Thumbs down :-(
what was they supposed to show a slim 360? Nothing really interested me from any conference to be fair.
All Sony did was announce a pric cut/slim. Big deal!
And still it was waaaaaaaay more exciting than whatever the heck Microsoft were playing at. You had an announcement of ONE GAME. Not even a new IP. WEAK.
MS wasn't hinting at anything.
The PS3 is dominating on every level now.
If by "dominating" you mean "lacking behind", well then you sir are correct.
The Ps3 is lacking behind 360, If by "lacking behind" you mean heating issues and failure rates.
No, I mean great games, and Live service, as well as a controller that actually fits in your hands.
...Milo be in Fable III??? ;-D
Noooooo poor MIlo, if it happen he will get abuse/rape by tons of monsters.
Milo a Priests best friend ;-D
...That was it? There has to be surprises in this one because if that was it...well idek.
hahahahaha the comments above is so funny. PS3 is unstoppable now. GO SONY.
More Hardcore than the Xbox now.
But I can't resist this time, this so called joint conference between M$ & Lionhead is very very very very weak beyond all comparison. Fable 2 being split into segments and announcement of Fable 3......that's it ? WTF ? Just like Ludacris' song....Move Bit%h ! Get out the way ! Get out the way ! It's all over
Would have though that at least someone would of turned up. No announcements of anything playable on the game floor. Are Microsoft turning into EA. Year 1 announce Halo game year 2 announce Fable game. Rinse and repeat.
Oh dear i hope you enjoy this dull conference chatboxes!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ;-D
If that's all MS has to show then it's pretty sad. They own the US in terms of sales/install base etc. right now and their best bet of growing is in Europe, they should be paying much more attention to the region. Pretty fail MS.
The Sorce is Weak with this one...
That was the Crappiest 3Shitsty Conference i have ever had the Displeasure of turning off after a minute
Can't believe you are all sitting there waiting for a price drop from MS come on how much have they already dropped the console looks like you lot want it for under £100. I think you have seen the end of price drops MS ways for some time esp with Natal and that on the horizon. Get over your punk asses look forward to Fable and stop moaning. PS3 is now in prime position to do the U-Turn that was always expected off it. Sony did not win the last couple of generation for nothing nor for the lack of competition. People know they they know the quality that will be on the way. There's an option for alot of the fanboys out there get on the train and move to one side cause its coming threw.
Maybe MS does not see gamecom as important for them as E3 is. But their conference was never really hyped so doesnt surprise me.
