M$ steal E3 with What exactly? Kinect?

Timed exclusives and/or timed DLC

ArchangelMike4757d ago

timed exclusive DO Not steal any shows! We're no longer in 2009 you know!!

cyclonus0074757d ago

The days of third party exclusives are over, there's too much money to be made. The only exception would be Nintendo since they're putting out a new console. Hell, they have enough money to make GTA V a timed exclusive. As for timed DLC, it's not a draw unless your name is Call of Duty and even then, sales aren't drastically changed by it.

"steal e3" ???? what are going to do, run away with what is up for grabs?? absolutely nothing. ffs there is nothing to win.

although, i personally think that microsoft will show their new console in the hope of stealing some of nintendos thunder

gaffyh4757d ago

@king dong - Yes MS, is the Grinch. :D.

It looks like Nintendo might have a good E3 and Sony could also have a good E3 depending on whether they announce details on certain games. With MS, I can only see them having a good E3 if they announce new IPs, because Fable, Forza, Gears and Halo etc. are a given. If they show Kingdoms that will be a good start.

iamnsuperman4757d ago

@cyclonus007 even with nintendo new console are third parties going to devlop just for one console. No. Just not cost effective enough. So do not expect third party exclusives for the Wii2 more multiplats being put onto the Wii2

SilentNegotiator4757d ago

Microsoft hasn't had an exceptional E3 in years. So they're either due for one, or things are just going to repeat themselves.

NexusCurb4757d ago (Edited 4757d ago )

Well... they could steal E3 by making a new LEGO game exclusively for Kinect. :)

lol

miyamoto4757d ago

Is there anything left to steal for Microsoft?

R0me4757d ago

I heard Sony hired a secret Agent to prevent this.

Anon19744756d ago

There's just no way. MS's conference last year was 90% Kinect, and you know this year will be the same. They'll show Gears 3, again, make their Halo 4 announcement, show some Forza stuff, maybe another Codename Kingdom trailer that shows us nothing and then it'll be all "Skittles stop! That tickles!"

Just like last year.

nickjkl4756d ago

with what i just saw if they do i fear for the next year of gaming

I hope they do well, but I don`t think they`ll really have enough to "out-do" Nintendo or Sony. Nintendo and Sony OWN too many companies that only produce games for them, MS is always kind of at a disadvantage when it comes to showing heaps of new software. IMO, the biggest possibility for them is showing new hardware, which they might unveil the new Xbox (which would be big). But I don`t think they will since they just showed Kinect last year.

fluffydelusions4757d ago (Edited 4757d ago )

Project Diamond seems pretty neat (price pending) but I don't think it will steal the show. I'm not sure what else MS has up there sleeves apart from from the following...
1) Kinect Games
2) Halo HD
3) Witcher 2
4) Codename Kingdoms
5) Price drop
6) Forza 4

MintBerryCrunch4757d ago

if their show ends up being showing gameplay of Gears 3 yet again...ill be disappointed...they already did it once...i would be happy with it only if they showed something new along with it, but Gears 3 cant be the main factor yet again, when they did that last year

Pyscho_Mantis4757d ago

witcher hahahahaha lmao why would they show that...
this is what they are going to show
1.Kinect bullshit
2.Gears of War 3
3.Forza 4
4.MW3
5.Skyrim (happened with fallout and bethesda dont have their own conference)
6. Skype/IPTV

JOLLY14757d ago

So Psycho, are you saying that they will have a little something for everyone?

MagicAccent4757d ago (Edited 4757d ago )

Like an E3 equivalent of the Grinch?

Sunhammer4757d ago

With pre-recorded Star Wars Kinect videos, of course!

ScentlessApprentice74757d ago (Edited 4757d ago )

We won't know for sure until the end of next week. Until then, stop with all these pointless articles that fan the fanboy flames.

iPad4757d ago

Yes.

Sincerely,

Smoke and Mirrors.

GusBricker4757d ago

With a very big fucking gun.

That's how.

DrFUD4757d ago

MS will always steal E3.
That's what they do and it's important to them.
They put on a good show!
(Hey, it worked for Obama too =)...anyway
It doesn't matter what they do it's how they do it.
It's decieving because they lead people to believe it's cool even though the actual substance is usually the worst.

I think they'll announce they are developing the Next Box. And I think they'll be a few games people will not expect. But I don't know if they'll steal the show.

SkyCrawler4757d ago

the only thing Microsoft can do that'll astonish me is if they show a new box with prototype specs demo and exhibition. Other than that and code-name kingdoms...no

MaximusPrime4757d ago

Don't know what MS will "steal". The past few E3 conferences were pretty dismal. I doubt this year will be exciting.

iamnsuperman4757d ago

They must have something else up their sleeve. The rumoured TV service thing is really targeting just the US audience and if that is their big hitter then their E3 will not go down very well. They really need more than just this and Kinect at their conference. I suspect an exclusive or two announced as well but again they need more
