Microsoft E3 2010 Afterthoughts

Xbox Evolved:

"E3 has come and gone yet again and as with every year we all get a little teary eyed when the final day is upon us - and who wouldn't? The marvelous spectacle that E3 has become is this close to becoming an American pastime. The vibrancy, sound, games and of course...the booth babes. But hey, we're gamers and what we really miss are the games that we got to sample that usually aren't due out for several months, if not longer."

MS's 2010 E3 conference was like 20 minutes of games and then the rest was non-gaming features and Kinect.

"Wait for E3 2010! Microsoft will have the lag fixed. They have the magically lag-free perfected edition locked away in an underground lair. They are just showing us crappy footage so that E3's footage will look that much better. And they will have awesome hardcore uses, too; grenade throwing, voice and gesture'll be awesome!"

Remember back in the day when it was "just wait till [insert blank]" for the PS3 people? Guess the Xbox 360 get a taste of their own medicine. I'll be waiting, Microsoft.

I take that comment back and will wait for gamescon. No they didnt blow it but hopefully will wow people before the launch of kinect.

At least they weren't as bad as Ubisoft or Konami

Not the best E3 for Microsoft though, doubt they care either. We know they were looking at that Casual audience, and they knew it. That's why they showed all the good stuff at the start and pretty much just forgot about the hardcore afterwards.

Just saw Don Mattrick interview with Geoff Keighley. Guy is such a douche IMO He was the only one bashing the competition, very stuck up.

Good ol' Microsoft. D'oh.

Dance Central was the only cool Kinect game they showed.

the worse offender are the people who said that this conference was good and bested sony and that they showed the goods...I mean really?

JasonXE3046d ago

I don't think anyone is saying they bested Sony. Not that I've seen. Where you seeing that at? Even the most hardcore 360 fans will agree that after the Reach showing, the show sucked major ass.

Check your buddy crapgamer down there. He loved it. He isn't the only one.

By the looks of the attention towards Kinect, I could see them pushing that more than anything IF it becomes successful. That's just the way they are. They follow what moneypile looks biggest.

If Kinect is the next big thing by next E3, I see that conference going worse than this year's. Hopefully that won't happen, but obviously they're riding on motion now, with their trusty Halo and Gears being the back-ups. Who can blame them? There's a lot of money to be made in the casual market.
