Live blog of the E3 2009 Xbox 360 Media Briefing


We are just a few hours away from the annual Xbox 360 E3 Media Briefing. This invite only event will broadcast on G4 (check local listings) but if you’re not near your TV, I’ve got you covered with the live blog I’ll be hosting direct from backstage. We’ve also got the IRC chat which is open 24/7 for you game chatting needs. If you’re lucky enough to be in the audience, and you are Twittering, be sure you use the #xboxe3 tag so everyone can keep track of the news.

  • chalmers1

    Yeah an xbox360 that doesn’t red ring would be good. I’ve had 4 rrod’s but I’ve heard of people that have had 10 !


    ^ @StabbyMcKnifey1

    i agree that HALO WARS was crap with the HALO name used to sell the game.

    but ODST is gonna be awesome – guaranteed.

  • chalmers1

    I had Halo Wars and got bored of it very quickly.ODST does look really good, just hope it doesn’t disappoint.

    cnn.com has already broke the news of Xbox Fluid this morning. I wont say what it is so people can be surprised, just go to their website and look for the headline that gives it away


    gonna watch it on xbox.com :)

    i think you can also watch it on your XBOX 360 via the inside XBOX channel (but not sure about this).

  • H2O Acidic

    ouch that must suck * goes back to watching g4

  • monosocratic

    while the presentation itself was a bit awkward, i was pretty impressed with the MS E3 keynote. Natal looks surprisingly amazing. Metal Gear for the win.

  • Silent Hunter65

    I was impress with the Live updates, but disappointed by the lack of exclusives for ’09.

  • DarkGin87

    Very impressed with Microsoft i was completely shocked by every announcement


    i honestly thought they give a date of when prime time was going live which should be soon since there not alot left of spring, or is prime time scrap now???
