    Major, I just had a bad feeling. I was about to buy some games on live (Shadow Complex and Marvel V Capcom2) but decided not to because I may be getting a PS3 soon due to the E3 conference. I will be very hesitant to purchase another year of live when the time comes again.

    I don’t want to be stuck with games on a console I won’t be using much of in the future.

    Oh Microsoft…you have screwed up big time.

    Also, my wife saw the kinnect stuff and thought it was extremely underwhelming. She is more interested in the move that will be almost half the price of the dysfunctional Kinnect.

    Microsoft won me over with the 360 and I left my PS2. It looks like I may be returning to the Sony shortly. A lot of my friends feel the same way. In fact, one of them already picked up a PS3 due to their conference.

    I really liked the press conference myself. Halo Reach and Gears of War 3 looked fantastic. I loved the Fable III trailer. Black Ops looked awesome. I can’t say that getting the map packs earlier then anyone else matters much to me as sadly I found Activision’s pricing of the Modern Warfare 2’s map packs was a bit too pricey. I still haven’t downloaded them despite my love for the game.

    I thought the Kinect display was great. The dancing and exercise displays really impressed me with how the tech works. The operation of menus with hand gestures and voice recognition was really cool. That River Adventure game looked pretty fun plus with Kinectimals and Forza III display I saw some really neat potential. I will admit though that I am worried with the “having to stand up to play” talk that I’ve heard lately.

    It’s as simple as asking youself why do people buy a console.
    .
    To play games, of course. So in the end wich makes a console great are the games not the peripherials you will use or the tech behind them.
    .
    This year PS3 will get the same games than Xbox 360 + exclusives (others than just a GOW and halo games) + exclusive content.
    .
    I don’t care that much about exclusives but getting less of a game just for buying it on xbox just feel sad. And yes, kinect may be awesome and all that but I can’t see any kinect game for me in the bunch of 1st batch.
    .
    I won’t dare to say such dramathic stuff as xbox 360 is almost dead and such, but as someone else pointed out, everything xbox users used to make fun of Sony can now be applied entirely to Microsoft.
    .
    Right now I’m more focused on Xbox Live Arcade than retail titles, and for me that’s what keeps the Xbox being fun. Maybe in the near future when 3rd parties get used to kinect and start implementeng it on their core games ( capcom, EA, THQ, 2K…) not as the only imput source but as complement to the control pad people will change their mind about kinect. Of course in case 3rd parties start working on titles other than minigames stuff.

    They should post Sony’s one.. The one with Kevin Butler… now that was a real nice takedown of Microsoft & Nintendo… I mean c’mon Microsoft… More WII games in Microsoft form?? Kind of lame…

    This is the greatest downfall of Microsoft ever. I’m suprised anyone is even going to stay with them and not go for TWISTED METAAAAAAAAAAL.

    @Xlrking Navigating the dash alone with Kinect is going to great enough for a purchase, so I’ll be happy with my one real game for it🙂 (plus I really want to see how Fable 3 uses Kinect)

    Overall though video games are for fun and everything Microsoft showed looked fun as hell, whether or not it’s less content than the competition.

    Major, I know that you had to get cheers because of crappy show with tons of fake acting… but still you should never end a show when the big surprise generally happends, just to announce that the journalist gets a free xbox, wtf?!
    What will MS do now that Bungie works for Activison, no more HALO etc’ (and thats a good thing, I mean halo3,odst,reach and wars 4 games on 4 years,nah not milking at all).
    So what will you do? gears4,5,6 and 7?
    Gears or Kinect? I love the middle ground you give people to choose from. Also, why hide Crackdown for this e3? is there a reason?
    Why not allow Square-enix FF14 on the 360? S-E said it was because you doesnt want it be playable with pc+ps3 owners, mayby because you actually charge people for gold while ps3 players play for free? dont wanna let people know about that?

    Some people are definitely overreacting. It’s obvious that natal isn’t geared toward the core gamer. As long as great games still come the xbox will be fine. It’s a little concerning that I can’t name one 360 exclusive due out in 2011 or beyond though. A few new ips would be nice as this years big games are sequels to sequels and yet another halo.

    It will be interesting to see if Major actually responds to our comments and concerns here or on his show like he stated he would. Not holding my breath though. MS seems to keep him on a pretty short leash. I find it hard to believe that deep down he’s looking forward to petting a virtual cat or playing some dance game.

    I don’t know if any other non-US Gold members feel the same way I do, but I feels like my gold fees are only going towards developing new features for US gold members only (no offense to US members). And, we never see a comparable feature launched outside of the US. Things like this new ESPN channel, lastfm, and netflix(not the best example as netflix cannot even be streamed from a computer outside of the US). At this point non-US gold members should be paying less for our gold subscriptions because all we are essentially getting is multiplayer and deal of the weeks. Instead we end up having to pay more.

    “The XBOX 360 you’ve been waiting for..” No Major, the one we should of had from Day 1. I think I’m gonna wait for the XBOX 720 next year, hopefully it should have blu-ray by then too..

    More money on games and less money on a circus that games journalists literally say “humiliated them.” Looks like Microsoft got the Red Ring with their press conference this year.

    Great Great E3, on 2011 they better have it in New York, and stop catering to these celebrities in Los Angeles,California. I mean, NY needs love to. I would definetly go if they had it in Madison Square Gardens…. don’t know if they ever had an event there before, but I would love to be there.

    OMG, some people can be so dense, just because they are making Kinect games in the future doesn’t mean they are going to stop making the SAME OLD games they are making today. By the time next yr comes you will get your same old Halo and Modern Warfare games >.>

    I would love to attend one of these as well and I wish one day they would have one close to home

    God damn I read through all these comments and there is a lot of dissappointed cry babies on here WOW!

    If people were smarter they would pay to extend their warranty for a yr or two so they don’t have to spend $300 every 6 months. I only paid for my console once and have been getting it fixed whenever it broke. I know how shit their console can be if you like playing the damn thing then you should think ahead.
    |
    I wasn’t at the conference but I saw some videos and the people did look a little nervous and fake but hey could you have done any better?
    |
    Microsoft pisses me off more than any other company so I am not a kiss ass, there will hopefully be more games in the future; not the same old stuff we have been getting every year, game makers have to step up as well. I am for Kinect I like to see stuff like that and who cares if its a wii rip off, shit its hands free! Every company steals ideas from the other. Netflix was on the 360 first now its on PS3 and Wii (I have both discs).
    |
    I got the new 360 slim, traded some stuff and only had to put in a little. Its basically the same system with the Wifi (which is awesome when my connection messes up and I have to “borrow” Wifi connection for a while).
    |
    Its best to have all systems cause then you can fall back on the other when the other fails and they all play the same thing….GAMES!

    You can please anyone (including myself) but I try to see the other possibilities even when I talk shit myself
