Events By Larry Hryb, Xbox LIVE's Major Nelson

  • Exu

    I thought the Cirque du Soleil thing was the night before?

    Alas, matters not to me.

  • SuperDunners

    Is this Sunday or Monday night as the Natal event happens on Sunday? *head scratch*

  • e

    The Natal Cirque event premieres on Sunday night, but there’s another showing on Monday so that more people can experience it.

    See you there!

  • pkort

    gahhhh!

    Same time I’ll be at the Ubisoft briefing!

    Was really looking forward to meeting you guys too, been a listener for years, and first time at E3 :-(

  • whodatcool1

    I thought the Cirque thing was on Tuesday. I’m all confused now.

  • ElektroDragon

    Will we get a cool meetup like this before the Seattle PAX, at say, the Cheesecake Factory across the road, or perhaps a local CPK?

  • stststststq

    It’s shown on MTV on Tuesday, but the show is on Sunday, the day before the main E3 press conference.

  • aceattorney

    Wait Zilla isn’t going to be there?

  • DHX

    The party of DHX shall attend.

  • Z4M0

    I’m looking forward xbox live coverage of this year’s E3… I’m not really into MTv ‘cept for MTv2 from time to time.
    .
    Just hope someone attending will share hi/hers experience with the rest :)

  • chiruno99

    I’ll watch the live feed on Monday, naked.

  • Wiseguy

    Sweet!

  • Arte Venture

    Have fun, guys!

  • SourNotHardcore

    That sounds sweet, too bad I won’t be there. You guys should host a tweetup for CES here in Vegas. Then I’ll make it. ;]

  • DMZilla

    I’ll be there! :)

  • Stoney0ne

    the red dead LA map is super sweet major

  • Mikerules868

    How did you get that map looking like that?

  • Aucard The 3rd

    Sweet, i will so be there with my girl friend and my best bro. i will be there, and to all of you coming to my home town. Welcome, and have a kick a@# time lol.

  • starz1984

    Man, if I lived in LA, Id be going. It looks fun to be there.

  • Dopefish

    A list of questions I compiled about the new hardware.

    1) Is the Arcade SKU getting this kind of stylish upgrade, too?

    2) Is the Arcade SKU just going to go away, leaving this new one as the only unit?

    3) Are all the USB slots in the back? If so, tthat makes it very inconvenient for someone who has a 360 in an Entertainment Center, especially since y’all are now pushing USB sticks as a way to move data around from console to console.

    4) Have the slots for the old memory cards been deleted from the hardware footprint?

    5) What is under that slot in the lower right hand corner of the front?

    6) Is the 802.11n a full 5Ghz, or a 2.4Ghz (lame) implementation?

    7) Are there still going to be detachable faceplates? Obviously the old ones are incompatible, but has that feature been done away with?

    8) Is the HD built in?

    9) Will you be able to transfer stuff from your current 360 hard drive to the new one?

    10) They claim it’s “whisper quiet”. What’s changed regarding that? Most of the noise came from the DVD drive, what is the DVD drive in use now?

    11) How will the reliability issue be regarding red rings? They seemed to have solved that with the last hardware footprint (Jasper).

    12) Will this new unit also come with the “built in memory card” like the last models did (had an on board 512Mb memory card that looked like an external memory unit to the OS)?

  • Dopefish
  • MotorCitySarge

    Yeah, we’ll all be very envious. Not much going on in Detroit tonight other than rain.

  • Disco Ball

    Question: If the old hardware is going to be phased out what will happen to RROD’s? My 360 is currently on the way to Texas for yet another repair, but in the future if you don’t continue to make the MOBO’s how will they get repaired?

  • Grubish360

    @MotorCitySarge—Same in Wisconsin lol. I really love the look of the new Xbox, and I’ve been holding out on upgrading mine for awhile.(2006 version…) Looks like I will be upgrading, hopefully a Kinect bundle!

  • BLUEMANRULE

    Wish I could have made it to E3 but alas, Have fun for me.

  • DHX

    How horrible! I arrived there at 6pm after a series of events caused me to leave slightly later than planned, plus traffic on the 110 was a nightmare! At least I was able to meet MN as he was leaving the CPK, and lauralollip0p was very nice enough to show me the new Xbox out in front of the place! Cheers for that! (Now about that chatpad…) So my 234-mile round trip (from San Diego) wasn’t completely in vain! But I did get lost in L.A. afterwards however, lol… *sniffle*
