It's still highly unlikely we'll see a new Xbox and Kinect at E3 this year, but at least we know where and when the revelation would be made, as Microsoft has announced its pre-show conference details.
i expect the conference to be about sales&kinect
Why are people still lingering on core games for Kinect when their are dozens of core games coming out this year across the PS3, PC, and 360?
because people don't want to admit they wasted their money. MS have said that core gamers will be focused on with kinect so it's reasonable to expect core games to be coming. Obviously it's probably not going to be to the extend most people believe but we'll have to see. I can assure you though, those that knocked the move and have high hope for kinect to overshadow it in the hardcore dept. need it more than anyone.
Whatever you say about the consoles, you have to admit Sony has brought it to E3 the past 3 years!! MS conference last year was (to me) so laughable, the more it went on, the more I couldn't believe how bad it was, pretending to play Kinect?! This year I hope they both bring it all haha, they need to if Nintendo are announcing Wii 2 (but I have a feeling the hype of Nintendo products is starting to go flat, the more time goes on the more obvious it is just how lacking their products are to what others are already offereng).
Well I hope not cause I don't have kinect.
Don't fret. 360 owners without Kinect will be able to play BF3, Duke Nukem, the next COD, Arkham City, L.A Noire, F.E.A.R 3, Supremacy MMA, Gears 3, Assassin's Creed 3, Rage, Forza 4 etc. Thats $660 worth of games assuming you buy each of them day one..and thats not including the games that have already come out this year for the 360. If you have all that and STILL aren't satisfied..then I think its time to go outside and get some fresh air cause life is clearly passing you by.
Well only 2 of those games will be exclusive to Xbox users, and one of them (forza 4) is more targeted towards a niche crowd. Hopefully MS announces some interesting games at E3 which are NOT kinect related, because I personally think Kinect is a waste of money
You are totally right, I can't enjoy games if they are not exclusive... What have I been doing with my life...
Thank You! I don't understand why people only consider exclusives games. PS3 has more exclusives but that doesn't make the 360 lineup worse. There are tons of multi plat games worth buying.
Exactly! I've been saying that for, oh iduno, forever now. Sure, exclusives are nice to have .. for the big three companies. Just cause a game is exclusive doesn't make it any better than multiplats. It doesn't automatically make it 'prettier' or make it any funner than others.
I agree with the above comments that exclusives aren't automatically the best games, etc.. etc... But it is nice to have more exclusives than less. It just means more games for the gamers. I enjoy multi platform games a lot, but I don't mind playing exclusives either. Games are games to me. If Uncharted was on Xbox to, I'd still play it haha. If Gears was on PS3, day one buy for me.
@undeercovrr Oh here we go..this "its not exclusive so their not worth playing" attitude is really starting to piss me off.
MS typically buts on a flashy show and occasionally throws some sales figures in there...Sony is the one who normally has 3 hours of sales and stocks with a couple game announcements and then they just show trailers from games we've seen a million times.....either way both shows are pretty lame
Yeah, 2/3 of the shows for Sony piss me off. Why? Because 1/3 is about Move, which I could care less, and the other 1/3 is going to be about NGP, which I could also care less. Hopefully the other 1/3 is really interesting. MS isn't much better either And nintendo's conference, well I'm not a big fan of Mario/Zelda games so I don't really watch them. However, I am really anticipating Nintendo's conference this year because I want to see what their new console can do
yeah i mean im interested in the NGP but if its gonna be more ps3 videos super imposed onto it then thats that and nintendo will be interesting to see if they can redeem them-selfs from the wii and see more super lag time of Zelda again (that was hilarious last year not gonna lie)
Finally some E3 news for a change. I hope their conference is not mostly about kinect.
I predict: Gears 3 Forza 4 Kingdoms Dance Central 2 Kinect Sports 2 Star Wars Kinect Halo 1 remake Fable 4 new Rare Kinect game
rally fable 4 already and dance central and kinect sports 2. Wow u lack imagination.
MS lack imagination fixed
There last 2 e3s disappointing me i hope this year there is a big hardcore push. I don't own a kinect so if there a whole bunch of that i will be sad.
I expect this years E3 to be EPIC for all 3 consoles! YAY for all gamers! Cant believe it's less than a month away! As for Microsoft i expect a really strong presentation. I mean seriously Gears of War 3 Forza 4 Kingdoms definitely a new Halo game Alan Wake 2 Fable 4 or an other game from Lionhead utilizing the new graphics engine they presented at GDC Obviously there will be a very big promotion of Kinect games planned with core games being presented like Nightmares, Steel Batalion, Project Draco and who knows what more! I expect a new anannounced Kinect game from Rare for sure, but i also hope for a core game from Rare!(Perfect Dark 2 or Conker 2 or Kameo 2 pleaseeeeeeee Rare) Also logically Modern Warfare 3 will be presented but i am more hyped for Battlefield 3, so i would hope for both games to be presented onstage(even though obviously Battlefield will be presented at EA's conference)
I hope I see games. No problem with Kinect games, if they are approach like Turn 10 and Forza 4. But I do NOT want to see PROMISING IPs go Kinect only.
I have a kinect, and I actually do hope MS does try to come up with some new uses for it, kinect adventures, sports and dance central were fun for like a week and whenever there's a house party. There is some promise there, but it just seems unlikely they'll be able to come up with a stellar AAA kinect game; hope they prove me wrong. Sony's got me covered in the hardcore department, so I don't need that from MS (and I don't pay for live), I hope more games are getting developed exclusively to take advantage of Sony's hardware.
also microsoft have opened up several new studios inc. one in soho london and the other in vancouver i believe. plus the buyout of skype i think microsoft could have a really good show this year.
why was confirmed on the title, all i read was a time for the show. you made an article to confirm the date? shit I could have predicted that, they did the same thing last year. what's next, an article confirming the date of E3 2011?
Gears 3, Forza 4, Shadow Complex 2, Kingdoms & Anything Alan Wake would be awesome. A good reason to buy Kinect would also be pretty cool.
Hate to inform everybody but I heard rumors that MS's E3 press conference will be streamed via SKYPE.
Would make sense that they would do that, considering they own them .. Which aint a problem, for me, as I don't know where to watch E3 at, now, anyway.
Even though I just made that up I wouldn't be surprised either. Kinda like what SONY does with streaming it through PS HOME.
Oh really? lol. I didn't know, though like I said, they prolly will.. It would certainly be nice if they hook up steam on the xBox 360 before E3. That way, they can stream the press conference straight to people's x360s. Yessir, it's nice how Sony does it with Home, hope PSn is up before E3..
That whole Skype thing I swear I heard them announcing it last year or so not at E3 but just as general news? I can't help but feeling they mention skyping on your xbox before I swear? lol can someone help me out?
Maybe you saw a preview of the Kinect Video chat and thought it was Skype? First I heard of Microsoft and Skype was yesterday when MS bought Skype and said they want to integrate into their Windows Phones and XBOX 360
hmm maybe it was some kinda future feature that that was planned to happen in the future of Kinect, thats prolly why it was somewhat familiar.
But other than that I just pray for new exclusive games.
