How you can prepare for E3

It’s almost E3 ! Despite the turbulent past this event has had it is now slated to be back in full force.  To prepare for the flurry of gaming news that will be flying around next week, we’ve beefed up our chat server (https://majornelson.com/chat.aspx) to ensure that console gamers from all platforms have a place to hang out and chat about the latest headlines in real time.

 

Whether you’re all about Xbox, the Playstation, Nintendo, or any other gaming platform; whether you’ve only got a few minutes to get filled in on the latest and greatest, or you want to be filled in on everything going on during every second of E3 we’ve got you covered. Before you hit the chat, check out the Chat FAQ for everything you need to know before you go or if you’re confident you’ve got it all down feel free to dive right in.

 

Of course, I’ll be live blogging the Xbox 360 Media Briefing Monday morning at 1:30p ET/10:30am PT/17:30 GMT so open up two browser windows: one for the live blog and the other for the chat.

    @captain Bluey, fellow Australian two things, Major Nelson NEVER answer questions like that, and we are NOT getting 1 v 100 as it is owned (in Australia) by a different company, and some company, who will remain nameless, hasn’t asked for permission!

    Only the great nation of CANADA (oh Canada!), and the people below them are getting this game, even our fathers and there fathers, UK are not getting it! might be somthing todo with intelligence of something, not to sure!

    anyways

    the guide is laggy and the marketplace is slow!

    Hmmm…. I’m waiting, but the only thing that strikes me is Palm Pre (info out before E3). I have not perused a dream list, but what happened to the OLED Displays? I thought FOR SURE I’d have a wall covered in that stuff with videos playing wall sized this summer if not in 2010. Any solar powered cellphones or PDAs (not attachable solar re-chargeable power cells).

    Umm… video game related, hopefully MS and Affiliates/Third Parties will have games with the technology used in You’re in the Movies – i.e. air instruments – drums, bells, guitar, piano, symbols, etc) just fun mindless mini games for high score – but not like Totem Ball (smiles).

    Surface (Lite) – I wanted that in restaurants years ago for ordering and paying the bill instead of waiting and waving the server down. Basic use, but very effective.

    Hey Major could you get me into E3 this year. I moved to L.A. a few months ago from the Seattle area so It’d be interesting to cover it and I have an HD Cam so I was going to make some videos for everyone. Anyways hit me up via Twitter at @Nickcast or XBL Number 01 or nicka10444@gmail.com for E-mail. Thanks Major

    Good to see that the US beta for 1 vs 100 is FINALLY starting on Monday – I’ll be there for sure! One thing I noticed though is that it says “Beta season free with your gold membership”. Does that mean that we have to pay for it once the final version starts?

    1 v 100 proof is held by XBOX official, who will not tell you, if you want to check for your self go to your classification website of your country, I don’t what englands is called but australia’s is http://www.oflc.gov.au do a search for 1 v 100, and bingo there it ain’t

    @Vegemite 98 – I dont expect an answer back from Major but I was hoping for some clarification at E3 about the 1v100 rollout across other XBLA countries. I am still hopeful that we will get it but who knows for sure?

    @Vegemite 98 – just because you could not find it does not mean UK or Australia ain’t getting it just means you didn’t find any info perhaps bad research or perhaps the details still ain’t confirmed

    @darkgin87, Every game released in australia must have a OFLC rating if it doesn’t then it’s a not released, there have been heaps of games we have missed out on due to the publishers of games not spending $2500 on a classification rating. If a game is released on XBOX LIVE without a classification then it is illegal, hence why we don’t have any community games available. also the owners of 1 v 100 in America are different owners of it in Australia, although it seems that they are the same company, permission still has to be asked.

    You call it bad research if you want, but at least I did my homework, I have contacted Southern Star Endemol(Australian owners of 1 v 100) and as of 1 month ago, they still have no idea that the game was being released on XBOX LIVE and no permission as been asked. the only request they did acknowledge was via Nintendo for the Nintendo DS which is the only classifcation given.

    So at this stage the only countries that are getting it are Canada and US, I will not bother checking whether England is getting it as that doesn’t concern me in the slightest, maybe if you did your own research you can check yourself there website is http://www.endemoluk.com Good luck (see I am even doing your research, get chopping!)
