@selfconfessedcynic: hands-on? someone's confirmed the box will be shown?

Well, the post show with Geoff is with Don Mattrick and I believe on multiple occasions the words used for it were "Geoff goes hands on" - but, I am pretty sure they never actually finish that sentence with "with the new XBOX"

I'm filling in the blanks, but you can tell me if that sounds crazy.

ED: Alternatively, he could be doing what Sway did with the 360 launch thing and go into the campus to see the visual design evolution of the box - but either way that sounds hella exciting to me.

Time to go out and buy some Ruffles and Sprite. I won't let the Man control me!

I love how the ad has nothing to do with video games let alone seem to be for "the target audience".

#58 Posted by Scroll (589 posts) -

Yeah I think they will show the box, a good number of games and press will have hands on after the show. The launch line up will be confirmed at e3 with price and launch date.

I'd like to see what the UFC game looks like. I want to see if Jon "Bones" Jones will look more like himself in this title. Also...

Banjo Threeie..

That's the kind of news that every website except Giant Bomb will praise.

Can't wait until the xbox comes boxed with a Doritos snack pack and I need to pour Mountain Dew into the back of the console to power the system up.

I have just realised that the front page of GiantBomb - "Coming up on GiantBomb" - Automatically changes the times based on where you are living in the world / timezone. Pretty Cool!!!!!!!!!

Agreed : D

It's a new marketing company this year and they're doing a solid job IMO.

I would be SO HYPED for a new Banjo Kazooie. But that's not happening, at least not until E3.

Rare just tweeted that they're showing something. I can hope, even if that hope will be pooped on.

#69 Posted by Scroll (589 posts) -

@big_jon: It isn't happening. It'll be a kinect sports title or something similar. There would be more rumours supporting the idea of a banjo game because they'd need to hire a lot more staff at rare to support a game like that.

There were rumours months ago that Rare has been hiring a lot of staff as of late, a larger scale game is indeed possible, even if it's not probable.

Someone get Xbox europe some Aloe for that burn.

#72 Posted by Scroll (589 posts) -

@big_jon: Link me to it. I really don't think Rare is that studio anymore, consider that they would bring in some people to support a next gen kinect game but that's it.

Interesting stuff happening on twitter for what little that's worth;

For the second one, some people noticed a link to this post from a couple of days ago -

#xboxconspiracies ?

It is mostly because it was not announced for any next gen console yet. I doubt EA would be so dumb. They want to go after COD afterall.

BF4 will be on PS4, I thought EA pushed Battlefield hard on PS3 because COD is already associated with the Xbox for most people. No way they will go exclusive.

here's to hoping for a low-latency Kinect 2.0 sensor bar that's easily hackable.

#76 Posted by Ducksworth (656 posts) -

Is the GT pre-show scheduled for half an hour before the actual show?

#77 Posted by Video_Game_King (34611 posts) -

Because of course it is.

You're actually the first person I've ever heard say that.

Maybe I'm just not in tune with the hacking community, but damn.

AAAAAAHgreed

Also, + points for them keeping it relatively jovial.

Though, I'd pay good fucking money for a cage match between Jack Tretton and a tag team of Don Mattrick and Steve Balmer.

(yes, I think Jack can take them BOTH on)
