Ah yes, E3, a wonderful time for gamers, a place where the Big Three announce new games, new hardware, and make you goto bed with them for a lovely night only so they can take your money in the morning - Well... Not so much with Microsoft this E3.
In my many years as a gamer, I have never felt so let down, so used, so ripped off by a company I refuse to support, I don't own an Xbox 360, and yet, Microsoft has even made me feel like utter trash, like i am nothing more than a piece of meat to them.
No new game announcements other than Kinect(aka Project Natal), we already knew about Gears 3, we already knew about Call Of Duty Black Ops, and we certainly knew about Metal Gear Solid: Rising and Fable 3.
What do us hardcore gamers get? To put it simply: NOTHING
Gamers alike, whether you be a PS3 fanboy, a neutral gamer, or even a wii only gamer, we should all be enraged by this. We pay $50 to them so we can play online with the newest games, and what do they give us? NOTHING
WE MUST NOT TOLERATE THIS WE MUST REVOLT! WE MUST SHOW THEM WHO MAKES A CONSOLE GREAT, WE MUST SHOW THEM WHAT A CONSOLE SHOULD BE!
I ask all of you who have an Xbox 360, or multiple, or have even had the RRoD, contact Microsoft and express your concerns, express your hatred, express what you feel about such crap. They need to know how you feel, how we, the gamers feel.
I was happy with the Microsoft Conference. The 360 is still the best hardcore machine and has the best online. The largest online community and the gardcore games last the longest on the Xbox 360. So I mean I plan on Playing Halo Reach for a long time, I will play through Fable 3 and Crackdown 2 etc.. then Next year, early on we get Gears of War 3. So I am glad we aren't going to get blitzed with 100 different hardcore games. Honestly, I had to already wait on getting some games earlier this year because they were coming out too fast. I mean sure Sony is going to throw a lot of titles at us tomorrow, but I doubt many sell very well. I mean you'll see 1 million here or there, but I think overall it's too many games too fast. Mainly because there are tons of third party games coming as well.
I was happy to see what Kinect could do, I wanted to see the media applications and how the voice commands work and I wasn't disappointed in the least. They were pushing something new, so it took up a good chunk of time. What do you think Sony and Nintendo are going to do. I am guessing We get 75% Move and 3-D from Sony and 3Ds, Zelda etc.. from Nintendo. To each their own, but I enjoyed seeing what Kinect could do and I'll be happy with the hardcore games coming out.
I can't believe they just skipped right over Crackdown...
I agree-something has to be done.
I don't even own a 360, but Microsoft has just insulted my intelligence with their latest E3 press conference.
Now I have no choice but to tune-in and watch Nintendo's E3 press conference, in hopes of getting some kind of redemption for what was given to us gamers by Microsoft.
Before E3 ends, I have to have had enjoyed at least two of the Big Three's press conferences.
Yep, that was rubbish. Map packs, sports you have to pay to watch, Kinect games that have no imagination on what to do with the innovation.
This was part 1 of the nasty E3 that's been building up for years. Gamers are no longer considered the audience, the casuals will ruin consoles.
if one wouldn't put so much faith and consumer loyalty into a comapany, they would notbe let down. I dnt hate wallmart for not having my favorite snack, bewcuase i dnt put energy into the love of walmart shopping
