Microsoft E3 2010 Discussion Thread
I haven't seen a thread for this yet.
If anyone has any good links to some live streams, let me know and I'll edit this first post.
Conference Starts today at 1:30 pm EST, 10:30 am PST
290 on Comcast (in Chicago)
Whatever channel Spike TV is on
Work-Friendly Live Blog
Major Announcements and News Items (only unknown new stuff here, as I'm at work and I don't want to use a messageboard as a makeshift liveblog)
COD: Black Ops - The guy playing the demo lacks trigger discipline and the helicopter somehow has an infinite amount of rockets. Timed exclusive COD mappacks until 2012.
Kojima - Shamelessly marched out onto stage to announce the person who actually worked on the HACK 'N SLASH GAME MGS: Rising
- Everything announced after this is exclusive to the 360 -
Gears 3 - First Co-op Gameplay live on stage
Fable 3 - Hopefully a better ending than Fable 2
Halo: Reach - Single player gameplay
Kinect - Yet another way to get through a menu (I WANT MY BLADES BACK, DAMMIT. AND DON'T TELL ME I CAN JUST HIT THE XBOX BUTTON ON MY CONTROLLER). Voice controls are kind of cool, but Video Chat has been part of the PS3 for several years now.
Xbox Live - Simulating a sports bar right in your home! On-Demand / Live sporting events from ESPN.
Kinectimals (SP?) - Be a crazy cat lady without the smell!
Kinect Sports - ...
Can we just agree that Kinect is just a Wii Clone? PUSH-UPS ARE FREE, PEOPLE!
Dance Studio - why...
Kinect and Star Wars - Light Sabres WOO!
Kinect and Forza 3 - How do you use the pedals? No matter, I can walk around my car and look at it...but how do I complain about a new scratch? "XBOX Complain about scratch"
Xbox 360 Redesign confirmed. Will it stay cooler? Is it more reliable? 250gb Hard Drive, Wireless N built in (which really isn't needed, because N is faster than the internet). Out today! $299. (Biggest cheer so far was that everyone in the audience gets one)
And that's it...

well I hope the bullshit they showed last night was a ponzy scheme for the main stream media and hopefully today we don't see some guy grand standing on stage like he's making the jedi stand like that.
They better bring the A game today. Lady Gaga & Bieber on stage FTW.

That kinect media briefing last night was WHACKED. Two words:
Any journalist that was there will know what I'm talking about...
Anyways, headed down to the convention center to get the badge and then hit the MS conference now.
