I want a face roomba
There totally was a Batman Begins game.
You had a dog in Fable 2 and it was great.
Game tapes is one of my fave features. Keep it coming!
I recently rewatched this press conference, but from a 1 gigabite mpeg that I had downloaded from Gamespot back in the day and left on a hard drive. The video is 480x360 and interlaced all to hell and I loved it.

Lost Odyssey was more then okey. it was one of the best RPGs on the platform.
P.S. Microsoft was running an awful arg at ourcolony.net. About 20 minutes before the 2005 E3 conference, the website changed and let you download a wmv. Here's that video:
Oh man, I would absolutely watch a 12-hour oblivion stream

Wasn't paying close attention at the start. Took me way longer to notice Ben's headphone situation, than I'd like to admit. Well played Ben. Well played.
@nyxtowa: I have a special place in my heart for Lost Odyssey.

Kameo was going to be on Xbox as well. I've played a leaked version of it and it looks basically the same as the 360 version, but at a lower resolution/frame rate.
Also, this press conference was the catalyst for the term "Bullshot"
Yes, you're absolutely right. I remember seeing it at a Gamestop and coming VERY close to buying it, lol.
Lost Odyssey is one of my favorite games of all-time :,(
Fun fact: The Tech Demo Square Enix showed off would eventually go on to be Final Fantasy 14.
@farleyslundgren: I remember it being really fun especially the parts where you drive the tumbler but I was (am) also a batman begins fanboy
Lost Odyssey was a mature jrpg.
Nice, wide pants
fable was amazing
I rented it. Gameplay was bad, costumes were good.
Seeing the original 360 interface damn near bought a tear to my eye.
Lost Odyssey might well be my favorite Final Fantasy game.
Something funny about that 360 promo they showed at the beginning there; that soccer player who is 'hanging out' with everyone, was Arsenal superstar Thierry Henry. I always loved that ad, because it's so incredibly low-key.
The way they dressed these guys to look hip, is hilarious!

Yo dog.. Lost Odyssey is pretty good. And some great music. And they stuck to the OG style turn-based party combat. FF13 would go on to ruin the series..
Edit: Also, I am actually playing FF11 right now while watching this lol And that weird tech demo teaser thing (believed to be concept footage for FF14 at the time), the design of that city is literally being implemented in the latest FF14 expansion coming out in July. Wild.
This definitely feels like the moment in time or inflection point where jrpgs and really Japanese games in general were at their height. I feel like oblivion is such a perfect example of how western rpgs really came into their own on consoles and Japanese rpgs really just kinda fell off a year or so after this.
As someone who works in tech it blows my fucking mind that Microsoft went on stage at E3 to announce/sell their new console and did it by listing of their fucking target Personae like it was a pitch meeting to a client.
Also, dammit Ben stop groaning whenever the Godfather game is mentioned! That game was good! The Wii version in particular was great.

Launch 360: best looking 360, Blades best UI.
Destroy All Humans hype
That pitch to women was real bad. Yikes
:promoves the Aussie flava :brad
Sounds like Jeff almost spilled the beans about a new Destroy all Humans game. There've been rumors that THQ is going to announce a new one at E3, and during this video Jeff says "Hey, Destroy all Humans! They should announce... well..." and then he totally shuts up and tapers off.... haha. Sounds like he saw something at judge's week.
VelocityGirl has a very popular SFM patreon now.
@rcairman:That might've been because they talked about it during the 8chan thing.
Did Jeff just confirm a new Destroy All Humans by accident? Hmmmm
@mattcorb7: In Ballmer's defense have you ever seen a Clippers game? That's kinda just who that dude is.
It's always hilarious to hear all the same buzzwords and marketing spiels being used over a decade ago in the exact same ways as they are today. Can't wait to hear them all again at this year's E3!
That Final Fantasy concept footage is finally going to be realized in-game, in the newest FFXIV expansion. Funny coincidence that this video goes up just a month before its launch.
Lost Odyssey was so damn good. If you have an Xbox One and like a solid JRPG, I highly recommend it.
