And there we were, then. Dressed in white ponchos with broad shoulders. Surrounded by jungle effects, Hollywood celebrities and acrobatic players from Cirque de Soleil. In the middle of the floor, with stands on three sides. When Microsoft showed this motion-based, controller-solving Kinect technology (formerly Natal) they denied the gaming journalists from around the world to actually be journalists. We were instead participants in the show - several of us were even gone out and played with the acrobats.
I have never felt so embarrassed at a press event ever.
