If Sony is leading though that's a good thing since they'll have the best hardware and graphics should really pick up so yay for us PC folks though!
My God, that gen wasn't even close. What's a GameCube again?
Microsoft's reveal conference was.....
tl;dr, not for a gamer, at least of our ages, 21+ or if you're not interested in Call of Duty.
.....disappointing, to say the least.
So they start the conference showing off a black NES.........oh wait that's the new console.........Here's hoping the PS4 looks more "next-gen" and interesting to look at.
Then they move onto Kin............waaaaaiiiit a minute! Where have I seen this before? OH RIGHT! Microsoft's last THREE E3 conferences. Remember those?
2010: Modern Warfare 3, Kinect, Kinect, Kinect, Kinect, Kinect, Kinect, Kinect, Forza, Gears of War 3, Fable, Kinect, Kinect, Dance Central, Kinect, Xbox 360 Slim announced.
2011: Black Ops, Kinect, Kinect, Kinect, Kinect, Kinect, Kinect, Forza 4, Gears of War 3, Kinect, Kinect, Dance Central 2, Kinect, Kinect, Kinect, Halo 4 and new Halo trilogy announced.
2012: Kinect, Kinect, Kinect, Kinect, Splinter Cell, some random exclusives I haven't heard about since, Halo 4, Gears of War: Judgment, Forza Horizon, Kinect, Kinect, Kinect, Black Ops 2.
And what did they do this conference? Kinect, Kinect, you can do this with live TV (meaning it has a coaxial port on the back....Where dat TiVo, doe?!), look at how quickly Kinect responds to me, we've improved Kinect, look at this shiny black NES that we stole from Nintendo and re-created, now let's bring EA (OF ALL COMPANIES!!!!!) to talk to us about some multiplats that some of us stopped playing (haven't touched Madden since 2001), Forza 5 trailer, Halo TV series, and CoD: Ghost on a new engine............and by new, we mean it looks prettier (I guess the same could be said about Frostbite 3?
). Seriously the gameplay they showed looked like it had the same hit-detection problems Black Ops 2 has right now.
Of course E3 is what, 20 days away? So they have more chances to show games there, and I can see why Microsoft decided to wait 'til E3 to show something off. But at least give us SOMETHING! You guys spent an hour talking about a gaming console. 3/4 of that time was spent talking about how a gaming console can control live T.V. and what I can do with Kinect, something that I don't want in the first place. When I first saw an actual GAME that was relevant to the Xbox One (i.e. an exclusive) I looked at my laptop to check the time and literally the console was about 3/4 of the way done.
Personally, I wished they spent more time talking about games, cuz you know.....I'm a GAMER, than talking about movies, apps, music, and T.V. I have DirecTV that allows me to enjoy music, movies, and television, AND I can record. I have a laptop, a phone, and (if I'm not too lazy) an iPod that I can get working again to store my music. That's literally almost a TB across those three devices, 2 of which are very portable. I DON'T WANT KINECT! WHY ARE YOU FORCING ME (as of now, of course things can change) TO USE SOMETHING I DON'T WANT?! ................well technically you're not because I don't have to buy your Big Brother console
