Well, E3 is beginning and I am bored out here in the Midwest waiting for today's action, so I'm going to write a quick little blog post about how I think E3 is great on the 360 and how I think it could be better.
Most of my E3 coverage will be through Gamespot, on my PC, naturally. I am excited, though, to be getting updates through the 360 as well.
It is most gratifying to be able to download high definition clips of games and watch them on my television. I mean, Gamespot obviously has the clips first, but it is so different to sit back and look at something like Mass Effect in my living room, where I will actually be playing it.
The demos have been great so far, too. NCAA and Ace Combat are pretty interesting, and a demo for Blue Dragon just appeared. I am hoping this isn't all of the demos we'll get... A Bioshock demo would be pretty awesome. I also like the free themes and picture packs, even though they aren't much to look at, they are free. Give us some worthshile picture packs and themes for free (it is a kind of advertising, after all) and that would be all right by me.
As for how it could be better. It would be wonderful if I could have watched the press conference live on my television while chatting with friends on Xbox Live. It would also be amazing if I could have a web browser for my 360 so I could just go to whatever website I want to visit and get all the e3 covereage for every platform and all that. Maybe by next year, or even by X07 we'll have these features. Here's hoping.
Anyway, so far, so good. I can't wait for more.
