That was the most boring and pessimistic conversation. Get me off gamespot.

They're going to show Driveclub, luckily they have all that footage from last year already done and all they have to do is replaced the 13 in the release date with a 14. Wait... that's the WelfareStation presentation.

Call of Duty, Halo 5, Gears of War 4, Titanfall 2 and a bunch of crap to do with Kinect.

I feel like E3, which lets face it only hard core gamers tune into/attend - really isn't the place to be advertising heavily on TV - the audience just doesn't care.

Great, we will get another first- or third-person shooter or boring Racing Game advertising expensive cars. 

I'm so hyped!!!!!

MS seems to be back on the right path. They need to focus on great exclusives and new IPs.

Best bit was about how Kevin gave Ryse a 4, but kept playing repeatedly enough that his coworkers noticed.

I would love to see a Crackdown 3.  One that takes rooftop platforming to the next level, and has a Borderlands style everything else.  Story, leveling, guns, etc.

We have still sold less than WIi U

You can now use your Xbox One to watch TV on a TV connected to ANOTHER TV.

Picture in picture in.... picture

Kinectless Xbox Ones still require Kinect but don't include it.

Tony Danza is our new mascot!

Fish AI is back for Call of Duty Advanced warfare, but now they swim in circles like retarded sperm.

Halo 5

Halo 5 remastered

Halo 5 remastered Ultimate Collectors Edition

Final Fantasy 15 release date and more new footage.  I'm good.:))

When they mention Kinect I feel that the Microsoft e3 conference will fail as always.

Is it just me or did they not seem that excited?

@hochstreck Go play MarioKart, Forza is for adults. Maybe when you get some hair on your balls your understand.

Because pretty, but insanely boring turn based JRPGs are better?

Because 90 minutes of sony's traditional charts/graphs/bulletpoint presentation is better?

At least Microsoft has entertaining shows.

@eternal_napalm  I'm actually interested, and I was completely opposed to the Xbox One at E3 last year.


I think Microsoft has some good games in the works, and they did listen to gamers and reverse their policies.  I am trying not to be too loyal to any one console developer anymore, they all have something worth checking into.

He probably liked it - but felt forced to review it low to be on par with other reviewers. You gotta think they check other reviews before releasing theirs. I've played it and it didn't deserve a 4, 7 at worst. Personally, if I don't like a game, I rarely spend more than 20 minutes with it. But then again, I got through about half of Heavy Rain waiting for it to get good. I had to quit though because it just wasn't happening.

@streamline RYSE wasn't nearly as bad as people said. I'd give it a solid '6'. The gameplay was repetitive but there was a decent, albeit familiar, story and it looked gorgeous.

@streamline Everyone was pretty harsh when reviewing Ryse. I loved it. Great Story, beautiful graphics and gameplay was pretty awesome most of the time.

You felt the need to praise Sony here - why?

I know it's very trendy to hate on the new Kinect - but have you even tried it? Or is following Internet trolllz that fun?

@Monsterkillah  2015 will be an amazing year. Halo 5, Witcher 3 and (possibly) Mass Effect. The 3 best games ever made, 1 of them exclusively Microsoft and 2 of the starting out exclusively Microsoft, later being ported to PlayStation.

@xantufrog They have to work at E3. It is like a 1 week slog for them. I wouldn't be surprised if they weren't a little less excited than the average person.

@michaelhuntiii @hochstreck 

You have to be kidding me, right?

Do you truly believe playing a game like Forza(a game about driving replicas of highy overpriced and superfluous cars in circles all day long) which can be customized(being able to rewind just defeats the point of a "realistic racing game" to a point it's ironic in a very stupid way) to be even playable by a monkey, makes you a "grown up"?


And as I have the luxery to have played Forza 4, the newest Grand Tourismo, the newest Formula 1 and Mario Kart 8, I have to say, that I rather play Mario Kart 8, than the former three. 

Do you want to know why?


Easy: Because it offers by far more complex, dynamic, creative and varied gameplay than pretty much every "realistic racing game" I have played so far. And I even find the presentation of Mario Kart by far more appealing. 

I buy and play games, because I want fun, creative and complex entertainment, which sounds and looks interesting, unique and pleasant - not because I believe being childishly or unidimensonally obsessed about cars or a specific sport turns me magically into a grown up.

I don't like turn-based JRPGs, as I found them boring for the most part too, so far. They are more or less the japanese counterpart to your average western Military-Shooter, in my opinion.

@Sevenizz because entertaining mountain dew addicts is something difficult to do, a zombie will watch anything.

@Sevenizz  I tried Kinect before and I didn't like it that much and I wanna tell you that when sony was focusing on the ps move so much and not showing real games or new games I was getting bored as well.E3 should be all about new games not just Kinect and ps move time.

@Sevenizz  we need a really compelling kinect game to shut that trend up, admit it. There's not a lot of Project eden or gunstringer good games

@MaP_Hagmen @warriors30 @mohezaglol Hell yeah! And a better framerate please...I love the game but it has some serious technical issues (360 version).

@_williamwallace  I prefer Sony you mean.  Of course I do.  Just don't forget the facts which is true.  Didn't you watch the last E3.  

Reversed policies too, why did they do that.  I wonder.

See you at E3 perhaps.  Microsoft follower/defender. 

Now who showing there love for Microsoft. Fanboy much eh.

Right, but didn't Sony have a Pepsi Corp (Taco Bell, Mountsin Dew) promotion before launch of the PS4? That's right, they did.

Have fun watching Microsoft's conference tomorrow.
