The Konami E3 press conference is on now

#1 Edited by Rhaknar (6299 posts) -

Kotaku is live blogging it. I doubt there will be any announcements of new games, but release dates would be good at least 
Live stream here
Ustream version:  Here

Keep Discussion On-Topic!

This thread is dedicated solely for general discussion of the Konami press conference.  What this means is:
  • Only discussion of the Konami press conference is allowed.  Please keep the discussions of the Nintendo and Microsoft press conference in their respective stickied threads.
  • No off-topic discussion at any time.  Want to talk about the World Cup or interleague play in MLB?  Do so in other threads.
Any posts/discussions found in this thread that do not relate to the Konami press conference will result in the guilty user(s) being sent a PM by one of the moderators.

Specific Announcements

As with every E3 press conference, there will be specific announcements that you most certainly want to talk about.  While we love your enthusiasm, we want this thread to only be about the overall general discussion of the Konami press conference.  Therefore, we ask you to discuss the specific announcements in the forums of their respective Wiki pages.  You can learn how best to do this in our E3 2010 and You! thread.    

Game Forums

Like with specific announcements, we would like you to not get into discussions of  individual games in this thread and instead post your topics/discussions in their respective forums(again, you can learn how to this in the aforementioned E3 and You! thread).  Also, please refrain from loading the Konami forums with discussions of individual games.  Breaking either rule will result in the user(s) being sent a PM by one of the moderators.    

General Rules & Guidelines

Even during E3 tomfoolery, the general rules and guidelines of the Giant Bomb community still apply.  You can refresh your memory about them in the Site Rules & FAQs thread.  There you can learn about all of the rules of not only the Forums, but also the Wiki, which I am sure many of you will be heavily involved with this week.  The sequence of punishments for infractions against these rules still apply as well.

Technically, I think Konami is streaming it, but their site is hella broken so good luck with that.

 All I want is more MGS. Castlevania kind of looks good, though.

They are having a lot of issues. They couldn't play a trailer just now.

Awesome, Russell Simmons just said "fucking"!

#21 Posted by TheKidNixon (1619 posts) -

For some weird reason, it wouldn't run if I clicked the link in Crome, but then I popped it into Firefox and it worked fine. Ooo, Russell Simmons.

Def Jam Rapstar
#29 Posted by TheKidNixon (1619 posts) -

Obama is hip-hop?

#30 Posted by evildeadron (879 posts) -

oh so hip hop is to blame for the mess we have in the white house now Russel? got it, thanks
#31 Posted by JJOR64 (19544 posts) -

"Best karaoke game of all time, whatever that means."
He just said that.  Haha.

#32 Posted by TonyBlue87 (350 posts) -

Soooo...Obama is the reason this game is getting made?  I'm sorry, I must be lost in this whirlwind of race-relation nonsense.  You want to talk about forwarding communication and so far you've said "fucking" and "shit" followed by "it's for kids."  Just show us the game and drop this bullshit.

#33 Posted by ztiworoh (910 posts) -
@JJOR64: Also - "We're gonna market the shit outta this" 
I guess there's no media training for Russell Simmons
#34 Posted by Rhaknar (6299 posts) -

Daft Punk = rap? >_>

#35 Posted by evildeadron (879 posts) -

also according to the gospel of Mr Simmons, until Run DMC there were NO black people on TV, EVER...i guess he never watched the Jeffersons, or Sanford and Son, or Different Strokes get off the stage and STFU
#36 Posted by Arestice (477 posts) -
@TonyBlue87: No no,  he said the benefit of hip hop is we have President Obama
#37 Posted by ztiworoh (910 posts) -
@Rhaknar: When it's Daft Punk being sampled by Kanye, yes, it is rap.
