    sooo pumped for the event next tue.

    • ElektroDragon

      Are you really expecting compelling games? It will be a showcase of apps, hand waving, and video content. And whatever specs they DON’T announce, you can bet its because Sony’s are better. I hope I am wrong….

      • Curtis Isabell

        i heard somewhere they aren’t even showing exclusives at the event but I can’t remember where I saw/heard this. it’s hard to have hope after the last few years =.

        • Andreas

          well they just said so in the podcast. the show will be about the hardware and the platform, and I guess a few game teasers and trailers but they will talk about the games at E3. I would rather see the big game announcements at E3 and that they stick with just the hardware and xbox live at this event.

  • ElektroDragon

    Into Darkness stole too many plot elements from Wrath of Khan! GRR! Not even movies can be original anymore, let alone games.

    • Zack Stein

      Hey, SPOILER ALERT buddy. That’s an important twist in the story. Seriously, edit your post.

      • ElektroDragon

        There, happy?

        • Zack Stein

          Yes. I’m the entire internet and the only possible person that could have been upset by the major plot reveal in your post. So of course I’m happy.

    Ma’NAH’ko… I believe Laura put the wrong emPHAsis on the wrong sylLAble.I was so embarrassed for her. Reminds me of listening to a fellow student reading allowed when I was in seventh grade English. He ended up spending the year being asked which teams were going to play in the Hyper Bowl (hyperbole). Still love you, Laura. We’ve all been there.

  • Angry Consumer

    I want to believe the event is warrant for the hype.

  • Nate Welles

    Aaron’s words are reassuring “E3 is about the games”. Damn skippy it is.
    I just hope that some of these exclusives are 1st party and aren’t shooters/driving sims.


    so what about XBOX in market?

  • JoeGrahamcracker

    I heard a rumor that it’s going to be called the Fartbox Supreme Dodge Durango 5000 and it requires Windows 98 with two powergloves to start. Probably just a rumor though. Hail Satan

  • John

    It’s epic that you are going to have a hands-on for the press with the next Xbox at the reveal in two days. Well done MS! If you play your cards right, you’ll have an advantage Sony will never be able to catch up to.

  • Masterste .

    Love the question about who unveiled the first Xbox :) I watched that show and was a very exited teenager and remember that moment! :), . Almost as exited i was to get Xbox live beta! And just as exiting as playing Major Nelson rally sport challenge and winning a Xbox live t-shit! that i still have!! good OLD days! :) i cant wait for more epic moments when i get my 3rd generation of Xbox. Keep it up man, good show as allways! :)
