Crackdown 2; so good it's in the top 10 twice

#9 Posted by TripMasterMunky (2402 posts) -

Can't wait for Mass Effect and Forza.

I'm going to be spending a lot of money on games the next year.

Hmmmm. Yeah, pretty good conference. Not as good as Sony's but still pretty good.

Errr, can we NOT make the primary conversation about Halo: Reach a question of genre? Because then they're going to announce it's a shooter, which we all know it most likely (99.243%) is, we will all have wasted a whole lot of breath.

Microsoft came out strong this year.

Wasn't there already a bullet point article like this up?

Moneysoft had a better show than Sony's entertainment-wise. Micro had chicks on stage that i wouldn't mind having relations with. Sony had unnattractive translators :( plus Microsoft rocked out with their cocks out on stage and had some random star power. why the fack was Speilsberg needed?

as far as content though, in my awesome opinion i'd say they're exactly the same. awesome scat commin from both companies. the only difference is, while i wait for Uncharted 2 or God of War and stuff, i can play Killzone 2 or Infamous.
while i wait for ODST and Splinter Cell i can't play nothin. i have to sit and stare at my Xbox and wait and pray for an awesome 3rd party game.

there's some great stuff up there, but in terms of the amount new exclusive games that i can't wait to play, Sony came out ahead for me. it's nice to have all of these videos in one place though, thanks GB crew!

@LordAndrew:
Funny how the good ol' blue names gotta come and say in an Xbox news post that it wasn't as good as Sony.

--

I can safely say I am quite excited for 7 of those 10 games (minus Mass Effect, Brutal Legend and Shadow Complex, but those all look great for their own audiences, just not me), as well as Project Natal, though I will maintain Ryan's skeptical point of view for the time being.
If they release anything close to the demonstration they showed at their press conference, I'm certain it will be a smash success. I hope they release a practical time frame (before holiday 2010, please..?) and price point (under $200?) in the near future as well.

I didn't feel like watching the E3 conferences this year.  Thanks for summing it up.

#32 Posted by LordAndrew (14424 posts) -
@ShinyD3mon: Are you suggesting that I'm a Sony fanboy? Sorry about that. I simply set my alignment as Sony because most of the games I've been playing are on the PS2. I guess I'll switch it back to neutral so people stop assuming I'm a Sony fanboy. Because I'm not.
I don't even own a PS3. I just had my alignment set to Sony for a dumb reason and happened to enjoy Sony's press conference more.

I'm pretty sure Joystiq confirmed Halo : Reach is an FPS.
