Oh snap gotta get a kinect now for ME3. LIARA GO, GARRUS GO, I'M IN!

new xbl interface ..New interface looks really slick. They finally did away with that awful Mii interface. At this point I think if I ever buy a 360 it will be for it's multimedia content instead of the games.

Not really interested in anything else they showed. Blood and Guns "cinematic experience" galore.

darren
06-06-2011, 02:53 PM
that interface is not much different than the current standard kinect interface mate.. they have just added to it

and i expect sony to show nothign but Blood and Guns "cinematic experience" galore as well tbh

Oh snap gotta get a kinect now for ME3. LIARA GO, GARRUS GO, I'M IN!

meh .. i'm more interested in read along with shepard ..

But he said that it was a new trilogy on the 360. Sounds like it will be a long time until next xbox.

darren
06-06-2011, 02:56 PM
yeah he did say that but personally i dont believe him .. but he's hardly going to say coming to next system IMO when they are not showing the hardware off .. he said coming to 360.. maybe it will be called 360-2?

Not very impressed at all. Doesn't look like there's much first party titles for me. Halo 4 will be on the current XB360 we don't need a new console yet.

Very boring... was hoping for some announcements. I really hate these gimmicks like kinect and motion control... what a waste of time and resources that could be better used creating real games.

The Ghost Recon Future Soldier gun customization thing was pretty cool.

darren
06-06-2011, 03:22 PM

this made me lol

Looks like I picked a good time to get caught up on 360 games, since nothing new that's interesting is coming out.

I personally dont see H4 but maybe H5 on their next console. Considering they mentioned another triology. Meaning six Halo games. GT aired it on Spiketv. Seems like theyre not saying much but the H1 remake will use the Reach engine. But the best of show for ms was ME3 using Kinect. Freaking cool use of it. I own one too. But I dont think its going to compare if Sony has an amazing lineup and gow4 hopefully. Have to say Fable Journey doesnt have me excited. That looks repetitive more then anything. No offence to Lionhead Studios..

There's nothing being done with the kinect on ME3 that couldn't be done with a regular xbox live mic. I'm thinking hard about selling mine. It's just a shitty product with little potential for actual quality gaming.

Absolute boring it was. All they spoke about was Kinect, which I have no interest in at all. I was expecting a lot more stuff. When they showed Mass Effect III with Kinect, I couldn't help but cringe.

The highlight of the Microsoft Conference was Halo: combat evolved anniversary and Halo 4. Everything else was a complete borefest.

Sony, however, done really well this year, especially with the PSVita and Uncharted III.

Looking forward to Nintendo mostly though, this year.

If you can call a remake of halo 1 and a game halo4 which is not out until autum 2012 a high point.

clearly MS should have made this bad boy

Oh and the avatar creator in kinect labs is shit ... Doesnt work as advertised ... It says it will replicate what you are wearing .... BUT i was butt naked and it fucking added clothes to me ...lol

Fuck this Kinect BS. I do have a kinect sure it is fun sometimes, but it is not the reason I bought the xbox 360.

False! Garrus doesn't need orders, he just rapes everything whether you want him to or not.

That Star Wars demo looked boring. The guy just stood still swinging his arms without thinking of what to do.

Shit I just had an idea that could actually make teh Kinect cool. If it tracked your head and changed the 3d view of what you were looking at you would have a glasses free 3d with no eye strain. Would be simple as shit to program too. (Relativly speaking)

Even though Microsoft's press conference was a snorefest full of retreads, their software was still much better than what the others had to show, Kinect notwithstanding. There should've been some hot new IPs but there wasn't. Sequels are good and all but they needed something truly new to wake people up and take notice.

That was just for looking out your windows. I'm talking about like that guy who did the youtube video with the wii controller and three D that worked by tracking his head movement and adjusting the display accordingly.

I found their conference to be geared towards showing that they have a plan to address the weaknesses in the company.

1.) Bing. Popular search engine, but far behind Google. So, put in on XBL instant exposure to millions. Looks like it will be useful.
2.) The new dashboard. Strikingly familiar to both Windows Phone 7 and the upcoming Windows 8. Laying the groundwork for acceptance for the rollout of Windows 8 on PC, tablet, and mobile. They begin building brand awareness through XBL in 2011.
3.) Weak in kids properties. Solution? The two biggest brands in kids entertainment, Disney and Sesame Street.

darren
06-09-2011, 12:26 PM
And those same millions don't already have exposure to bing via a pc , tablet or a phone already.

Sinful Sam

Giving people Bing seems pretty useless on Xbox Live. First off it has no web browser. Will it give you an option print from your Xbox? I'm guessing it be useful tto perhaps look up stuff you are seeking a simple result that won't require too much to remember. Am I missing something else?

Northeastmonk
06-10-2011, 02:10 PM
I was wondering if Bing just searches through an online database over xbox live, or the whole internet? I wouldn't believe every parent out there actually enforces the parental control option.

Incorrect, fellas.

The coprocessor helps!

Me, I wasn't floored by the presentation, but the lineup looks really solid. It would suck to be a Kinect hater I s'pose, but I enjoy mine so I've got lots to look forward to. Halo CE Anniversary will be rad this year. I hope they hold off on Halo 4 till the next system though.

Just play mass effect 3 on the pc if you dont want to use kinect.

Just the existence of Kinect hurts some people's brains.
