Standard COD

"There's no doubt that Microsoft has something awesome to unveil, and I'm guessing it'll be software related as Kinect and new 360 just released last year"...Seams right really considering MS has been focusing on Kinect...

I think the big bang will be the Halo remake (releasing end of the year) and new Halo (releasing next year). If this is true its just a shame it was leaked before.

SlyFoxC2772d ago

the company that makes Left 4 Dead is dead lol....breaks my heart love those games! so might want an edit there

king dong2772d ago (Edited 2772d ago )

left 4 dead is going to the ps3/360/pc.. i still want it though

anyway, i think a new halo will be announced, along with a load of kinetic and... i'll wait and see

Scary692772d ago

To be honest Halo seems to be going down the same path as the COD franchise. Too many of the same old sh*t people start to get tired and move on to other stuff. Gears looks good lets hope it is.

The E3 Madness Begins. So Darn Excited.

im so excited, im 100% sure they will announce a new call of duty, but thats not the best part of it at at all, the best will be when they announce timed exclusive dlc for it

aPerson2773d ago (Edited 2773d ago )


Besides, what's so amazing about timed exclusive DLC?

Kon_Artist 2773d ago (Edited 2773d ago )

it was a joke.. ffs

Some people are capable of sarcasm and understanding sarcasm without the use of a /s aPerson...

Convas2773d ago

Very excited about E3 as a whole. Sony's going to definitely bring the heat.

For MS, I will remain cautiously optimistic. I'm looking forward to any and everything related to Halo, Gears of War, Alan Wake, Codename: Kingdoms, or Forza.

That being said, hopefully we see some things we just flat-out didn't see coming, AT ALL.

Either way, I'm pretty sure I'm going to walk away from it all pretty darn content.

if ms broke the mold of releasing a 3rd home console and announced a dual purpose unit. Portable as well as home console. No doubt the latest trend has all been about portability with all these new phones and tablets that are able to do so much with so little in size.

They could use the WP7 as the base and create a platform that not only supports hd graphics on the go but also be plugged in to an hd tv for gaming and media at home.

I am reminded on the sega nomad when thinking of this. It was a dual purpose unit. You could do exactly as described. Portable genesis or plugged into a tv for home play.

The potential performance of this (if they did do something like this) would put it past the current ps3/ngp as it would have to be to be considered a next gen system. Biggest concern obviously would be price. Games wise, considering pretty much any game can be available over xbl I am betting it would be an all digital type of device.

wishful thinking or possibility????

SnuggleBandit2773d ago

how could a portable device possibly be more advanced than a xbox 360 or ps3 though? That would not be a step forward.

darthv722773d ago

portable devices are getting better all the time. It isnt that hard to imagine. Advancements in tech are moving very quickly.

If you are a believer that it has to have size to be relevant then you are missing out. NGP is a perfect example of portable power that would be equal to that of a console.

I am just thinking of the evolution of that which would classify it as next gen. So much more memory and cpu speed and gpu performance and double as both a portable and console depending on how you play.

Its like the old saying. Big things come in small packages and we are seeing that become the norm as phones and tablets get even more powerful than desktop pc's.

SnuggleBandit2773d ago


so you think ngp would look even remotely good hooked up to a 50 inch plasma? No way. It's not technically as powerful as a ps3. It has the graphic fidelity of a ps3 because its on a 5 inch screen.
