Welcome to the E3 2011 Konami Press Conference Discussion!

Hello my fellow Giant Bomb-ers! Unless you have been kidnapped by pirates with no TV, phone or Internet access, you know that E3 2011 is upon us. Going with tradition, each of the major three platform companies along with a few of the biggest publishers will be giving press conferences to discuss the past, present and future of their company and the video game industry as a whole. To make the Giant Bomb community more orderly and easier to navigate, we have created an official "sticky" thread for each of the press conferences. This thread is dedicated to the discussion of everyone's general feelings/opinions/thoughts of the Konami press conference.

Keep Discussion On-Topic!

This thread is solely for the general discussion of the Konami press conference. What does this mean? Well...

  • Only discussion of the Konami press conference is allowed. Please keep discussion of the other press conferences in their respective stickied threads.
  • No off-topic discussion at any time. Want to talk about the NBA or Stanley Cup Finals? Do so in other threads.

Any posts/discussions found in this thread that do not directly relate to the generality of the Konami press conference will result in the guilty user(s) being sent an PM by one of the moderators.

Specific Announcements

Naturally with any E3, there will be a lot of specific announcements that you would like to discuss with your fellow users in the Giant Bomb community. We certainly welcome this enthusiasm and drive. However, we want this thread to only be about the overall general discussion of the Konami press conference. We ask you to direct all threads/posts/discussions of specific announcements in the forums where they belong. You can learn best how to do this in our E3 2011 and You! thread tutorial.

Game Forums

As with specific announcement, we would like for you to not get caught up in deep discussions of individual games in this thread. Instead, we direct you to take those discussions into their respective forums(again, you can learn more about this in the aforementioned E3 2011 and You! thread). Don't forget, please don't overload the Konami forum with discussions of individual games. Breaking either of these rules will also result in the guilty user(s) being sent a PM by one of the moderators.

Some Konami conference related forums you might want to use:

General Rules & Guidelines

Even during the week of full throttle shenanigans knows as E3, the normal rules and guidelines of the Giant Bomb community still apply. You can update yourself on the forum and wiki rules by visiting the Giant Bomb FAQ thread. In there, you can learn about all of the rules and proper instructions for the forums and Wiki. The sequence of punishments for breaking this rules still apply as well.

Recorded Streams

You can watch the Konami press conference on the following live streams:

I'm calling it. This is the year they finally dethrone Jamie Kennedy.  
 
Also I hope we get an announcement for the second Lords of Shadow DLC or a sequel (or both!).

I'm going to have this, a pm, the GBTNT, and the Konami press conference all up at once. I'm ready.

I think this will be awful.  They put on a car crash show last year and then the suits found out that if got a lot of attention - so now they will try to be intentionally crazy and ruin any lols.  A bit like when Norm tries to start his own memes.

Metal Gear Solid 5 please. Finished MGS4 for the second time today, and my body is ready.

I actually didn't care much for last year's press conferences, but maybe that was because all they did was focus on the Kinect/Move and I don't care much for motion controls at all.

@GunslingerPanda: I approve of your avatar. That is all.

That would have been the banner, but then we would be breaking our own rules.
