E3 2011: Microsoft Press Conference

e3-2011-ms-conf

***************************************************************
PLEASE NOTE: This is my comments from Twitter that I made as the conference happened. If you can’t handle a difference of opinion from your own, then please DO NOT read this or comment.
***************************************************************

* First up for the Microsoft press conf. is, you guessed it, a shooter. It’s Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3. Yawn!

* Honestly, why are they showing this game. Everybody knows what to expect and they buy it. I won’t, but this was already known too.

* Good thing a guy is shown playing. I always thought video games played themselves. Heck they kind of do nowadays.

* Tomb Raider reboot up now. This is one game that seems interesting to me.

* Peter Moore out for EA Sports imagining Kinect crap.

* I think I speak for all Mass Effect fans when I say Mass Effect 3 doesn’t need Kinect support.

* Ubisoft with Ghost Recon: Future Soldier. How may E3s has this been at now? At least 2.

* Can Kinect make taking a piss more “fun” too?

* TV doesn’t need to be “improved” with Kinect. A person’s voice isn’t standardized, but the remote is. I’ll take the “so horrible” remote.

* The INTERNET itself finds things better than Xbox Live.

* Entertainment with Xbox IS NOT the way I want it. It’s the way YOU want it Microsoft and that sucks!

* Dana White [UFC President]? He adds nothing being here expect for maybe getting an attitude with someone.

* Awww. It’s CliffyB & Ice-T for Gears of War 3. How cute.

* Crytek with Ryse trailer and now Halo history trailer for Halo 1 remake.

* Forza 4 trailer shown. Now Peter Molyneux on to over promise with the newest Fable game.

* Minecraft getting an Xbox release. I still don’t understand the appeal of it.

* Dinseyland Adventures for the Kinect looks like Home.

* [Kids on stage playing a demo.] “Oh no the Queen! Fistbump!” *rolls eyes*

* [Star Wars Kinect game pops on screen.] Clearly people are programmed to cheer anything Star Wars related. Stop it!

* Double Fine with their Sesame Street game.

* It’s Tim Schafer and, of course, we have to act like everything he does is so damn wonderful.

* It’s time for that wacky Kudo Tsunoda!

* That’s a lot of cheering for Avatar features.

* Kinect Sports 2 up now. AKA Wii Sports Resort.

* You can’t become #1 console in the world if the Japanese aren’t buying it.

* Halo 4 teaser for 2012 ends the show.
