E3 2010: Microsoft dates Kinect and new Xbox 360 ‘slim’

June 14, 2010

E3 2010: Microsoft dates Kinect and new Xbox 360 ‘slim’ Microsoft just officially unveiled the Kinect along with the rumored Xbox 360. The company went further by giving a launch date for both devices.

It came as no surprise when Microsoft unveiled the new Xbox 360 model I reported yesterday. The model will have Wi-Fi support (802.11N), and comes with a 250GB harddrive. The Xbox 360 “slim” will look exactly as shown in the leaked pictures from yesterday.

Apparently, this $300 model will replace all Xbox 360 models. Microsoft is looking to clear out old stock with a price drop to the Arcade ($150) and Elite ($250). The Xbox 360 slim will ship to retail this week.

Microsoft also announced that Kinect will be launching November 4 later this year. No price point was announced to refute or support the alleged rumors of a $100 to $150 price tag.

The majority of the press conference was dominated by the Kinect. The company did show off Gears of War 3, Halo: Reach and Kingdoms near the beginning of the press event. Look forward to my in-depth overview of the Kinect game lineup later tonight.

  1. The Future of Sega:

    I’m so sick of these new models coming out! Jesus Christ Microsoft you guys honestly don’t give a shit about anyone!!

    What about us previous xbox 360 model owners huh!? I hope that we get a fucken 75% discount on that bitch!!….PISS me off…

  2. Roca.:

    apparently MS thinks wifi will sell consoles…
    one thing that help the PS3 slim was the price cut….

  3. yankeestiger:

    I thought the keynote was boring, even worse than the joke Nintendo presented last time. Everybody was impressed with Rising, but that’s not even exclusive so who cares. Gears was more of the same, and Halo was the usual garbage. Next was an hour of Kinect with some of the most awkward presentations Ive ever seen. Then they tried to buy off the audience with free xboxes lol.

    Kaz Hirai should just walk on stage tomorrow and say “Resistance 3, Infamous 2, The Last Guardian, Little Big Planet 2, Killzone 3, Gran Tourismo 5, DC Universe Online, The Agency, The Agent. That’s it folks – Thanks for coming.” And then proceed to walk off. Sony is already popping champagne right now.

  4. Barnabe Jones:

    Yeah I’m obviously partial to the PS3, but the over all reaction to Kinect seems to be disappointment.

    The majority of the show was just, reskinned versions of popular games.

  5. Barnabe Jones:

    btw I think Sony has already won by default.

  6. yankeestiger:

    “Sony has already won by default”

    You got that right Mr. Jones.

  7. The Future of Sega:

    I definitely won’t be purchasing the new xbox “prosthetic” :)

    ….by the way…who’s the new guy up there^^^ yankeestinger….must be new.

  8. phranctoast:

    That’s BJ to you ;)

  11. Happyhockum:

    Pbots in ‘I won’t buy new Xbox shocker’.

    Jeez, give it a rest.

    There’s a spec upgrade, a refreshed look and a price cut.
    There’ll be plenty of sales, don’t worry about that.

  12. Barnabe Jones:

    @Yankeestiger

    Wow. That’s crazy. Not only was the concept stolen, but they actually stole the name? Amazing!

  13. CON:

    The new xbox slim is fucking gorgeous. I can understand why the pbots are so jealous in these posts lol give it a rest!

  14. b0xel:

    EA’s confrence is in about an hour, lets see what they have.
    “btw I think Sony has already won by default.”
    Duh, still, I really cant wait for they’re conference. can you imagine what they have in stored.

    wow i think i saw the same comment on the destructoid’s, cool fanboys galore ;)

  16. Roca.:

    @BJ

    the whole conference was pretty much stolen

    Kinitic = Eye Toy & PS2 game called Kinetic
    Kinect Sports = Eye Toy Play Sports
    Dance Central = Eye Toy Groove
    Joyride = Eye Toy Antigrav
    Kinectimals = Eye Pet
    Kinect Adventures = Eye Toy Play Sports & Eye Toy Play
    Forza interior look = GT5p
    360 Slim = PS3 Slim
    Built-in wifi = all PS3s
    built-in HDD = all PS3s
    Black glossy look = Original PS3

  17. yankeestiger:

    You are definitely onto something there Mr. Roca. But it should not surprise us, as we all know that microsoft is an innovator in technology.

  18. Happyhockum:

    Desperate reaching from the Pbot gang as per.

  19. Roca.:

    welcome to Blorge Yankeestiger…I can see you’re not as blinded as some ppl here (cough…cough look above) ;)

  20. yankeestiger:

    It always surprises me to see people defend that piece of shit called xcrap.

  21. CAD:

    Well I have yet to take in the conference but it’s about time Microsft jacked Sony since Sony has been jacking from everyone else.

  22. Happyhockum:

    It always amazes me that the Pbot gang seriously imagines anyone outside of their ranks really gives a flying f*ck about their one-eyed fanboyism.

  23. Barnabe Jones:

    Where you really impressed with Kinetic’s lineup?

    I already said, I’m not expecting Kinect to get really good games until the next wave of them.

    In the meantime I’m looking forward to gesture control, that really impresses me.

    @yankeestiger:

    Dude, coming from you, i m happy i stay off ps3 and psn, using two login names on destructoid’s to show ps3 strength, seriously WTF is wrong with YOU kid ??

  27. Roca.:

    can’t this be really deny???

  28. CON:

    I’m sorry but you Pbots don’t even realise that you’ve just witnessed the death of ps3 in this console race.

    I was quite sceptical about kinect but after watching the presentation I truely believe that this will be a console seller. I can see this appealing to such a wide market. The whole concept of facial recognition and voice command will be a revolution in home entertainment.

  29. CON:

    Crouches down and covers ears…………….

  30. Happyhockum:

    CON

    If they can get the integration with the rest of your a/v stuff going on nicely then I have no doubt this will take off & be very big.

    I’m looking forward to this breaking in PCs too.

    Gesture control, it’s got all the potential to revolutionise so much.
    I love it.

    Even if they take a little while to get it out there the writing is on the wall and the future is so clear.

    No more half dozen remotes clogging the living room, annoying you when they vanish or run out of batteries.
    It’s brilliant.

  31. jojo29:

    Ill be the first pbot to say this in a 360 thread:

    I dig the new 3y0 slim look…its neat…its black like the ps3…no complaints from me here…

    But, ms better announce some AAA exclusives because…another gears next year, another halo…and fable 3 for me on pc….and a slew of “mii’ too type games from ‘move’…I mean Kinetic…really??? I want to see games I’m envious of….

  32. Roca.:

    “The whole concept of facial recognition and voice command will be a revolution in home entertainment.”

    Xbox!!!….Pause!! [awkward feeling in the room]

  33. CON:

    AAA?

    The new halo looks great. Looks like it has a pretty decent single player as we all know the beta is looking pretty fucking amazing.

    The new forza looks great and so does Gears and Fable. All AAA.

    If you have the graphics cards do play these on PC then great because they’re brilliant games but for the rest of us I’m pretty damn excited about these exclusives. “XBOX!! Go on to blorge and make fun of all the bitter ps3rd bots”

  34. Happyhockum:

    Roca

    The only people that sort of idiot reaction would come from are the blinkered Pbot types.

    Everyone else will be looking at the gesture control and thinking how can I get my a/v set-up switched over to this stuff?

  35. Roca.:

    3 games…

    Sony won the AAA battle even before E3.

    Infamous 2
    Killzone 2
    LittleBigPlanet 2
    Socom 4
    Gran Turismo 5
    Motorstorm Apocalypse
    DC Online Universe
    Last Guardian
    and more

    “I’m sorry but you Pbots don’t even realise that you’ve just witnessed the death of ps3 in this console race.”
    Oh no my friend, I dont think YOU realize whats happening here, MS is moving towards the Wii market, and they might just succeed, but guess who’s gonna get screwd if they do,…..yes, you guys(and us multi console owners, though not as much) and generaly all the core 360 gamrs.
    so, I hope you like shaking your booty, cuz thats all you’ll be getting soon.

  37. CON:

    I’ll give you Killzone, LBP2 and GT5. The rest are not AAA. Your just spamming exclusive games.

  38. Roca.:

    definition of AAA = games built on quality, with huge amount of hype and almost unlimited budgets and advertisements

    if you don’t think DC Universe Online and Last Guardian are AAA games then you’re an idiot

  39. harry sachz:

    @ toshi,

    Do you have the link where he did that? I’d like a bit of a laugh.

    Where is Ivan? I could have sworn he said that the slimmed down 360 didn’t exist.

  40. harry sachz:

    The games on Kinect looked geared towards the younger audience as they are obviously wanting to tap that demographic. I do like the voice control and hand control of the navigation. And Forza looks really cool with it also.

  41. harry sachz:

    @ PS3 owners,

    How do I stream my music from my PC to the PS3 when playing a game? I’ve got Split/Second and prefer to listen to my own music when playing racing games. Is there a trick to it?

  42. CON:

    @ROCO

    Calling someone an idiot because they have a different opinion shows your ignorance.

    AAA games are based on quality and sales. Hype means fuck all. If that were true then Haze would be one of the greatest ps3 games of all time.

    Pathetic arguement.

  43. Roca.:

    @Harry
    over an hour and a half on Kinetic…that was painful for hardcore fans to watch, I’m not bashing on it (since some ppl here likes to take it personal) as have the same opinion about Move and I thik it will bring the same amount of shovelware for the PS3..I really hope Sony doesnt spend as much time as MS did talking about Kinetic…(I’m afraid they will) but at least we have a pretty good chunk of announcements before E3.

    I see Move as a additional feature for some hardcore games like Socom…no way in hell I will play it with Move 24/7 but it can be nice to try just for the heck of it.

  44. harry sachz:

    CON has a point. It’s not like Too Human has ever been referred to as an AAA title, and that had a massive amount of money spent on it and the hype to go with it also.

  45. harry sachz:

    @ Roca,

    I understand, I think as it is new hardware, they did spend too much time on it.

    Anyone else think that that twin who called her sister had an annoying voice? Not a bad arse though.

  46. Rimmer:

    seriously these constant complaints that Kinect is basically just an eye toy rip off is like saying the iphone or motorola droid is just a rip off of the classic nokia 1100. or the PS3 is just a rehash of the original playstation. This e3 presentation shows how it is so much more than anything on the market at the moment. What they were missing however was to show how kintect could be used in conjunction with a controller to enhance the traditional hardcore game experience. Hopefully more will come over the next few months. The other thing is was trying to figure out is there seemed to be a time delay of over 1 sec between the on stage person moving and the screen showing that movement.
    I wonder what Kingdom is going to be – coming from crysis it should look incredible, whatever it is.
    Honestly, comparing Sony Move to Kinect is pointless – it is most likely more accurate, but lacking in every other aspect. Move is going to do bugger all to expand the PS3 market. Kinect on the other hand could attract people who are not interested in a games console and see the Wii as just a toy, but like the implementation of fitness games that actually teach you to improve your movement and posture, or can actually teach you to dance.

  47. Roca.:

    “AAA games are based on quality and sales”

    that’s why the are called AAA games way before they even sell a single copy…..I like they way your thinking!

    does sells = AAA game? hello Wii Sports Resorts and Just Dance

    Ico was considered one of the best games of all time, yet it sold poorly. popularity doesnt have anything to do with a game being a AAA game, its all about quality and resources

    pathetic arguement

  48. Roca.:

    Too Human was a AAA title and it was treated like one, it just happen to be a horrible AAA game, just like Haze.

    Alan Wake is another AAA that has sold poorly and has “average” review scores.

    @Rimmer
    http://reviews.cnet.com/8301-21539_7-20007647-10391702.html?tag=mncol;title

  49. CON:

    No I said quality AND “sells” lol

    You’re coming across as such a pathetic twat today. Go play with your dildo Move.

  50. Roca.:

    made you look stupid and now replying with insults and childish comments is all you have left.

  51. harry sachz:

    Alan Wake has average reviews? hah.. ok, sure. Being in Metacritic in the mid 80′s is better than average in my opinion.

  52. CON:

    How the fuck was Alan Wake a AAA????

    I’m not even going to argue with you if you’re gonna talk about Haze and AAA in the same breathe lol

  53. Rimmer:

    roca, nice try, but no cigar. as i have already stated, kinect is to the eye toy, what the iphone is to the nokia 1100. they both work on the same principles, but one is generations ahead in everything else it offers.

  54. Roca.:

    @Harry

    I think of average as “good” and below average as “bad”
    90+ = great/awesome
    75-89 = good/average
    75 below = bad/below average

    That’s how I see it.

    how is alan wake a AAA?
    long development cycle, unlimited resources, huge hype, and heavily supported by its publisher (funding) why is Alan Wake not a AAA? because of sales?

    you’re telling games like Ico, Okami, Shadow of the Collossus are not worth in the AAA category just as much, if not more than Madden?

  55. Roca.:

    btw, Medal of Honor looks great.(I just got the Beta for it starting this Thursday) hopefully it will be good…Dead Space 2 and BulletStorm also look awesome.

  56. Saber_HAHAha:

    Called it. The Wi-Fi addition was badly needed… if they make this right (quiet, no disk scratching, low failure rate), I’ll give them a lot of respect back.

    Then all they gotta do is quit with the timed exclusive BS and buy a few of their own studios.

    Good step forward, though.

  57. thumsy:

    the price is 149.99

  60. The Future of Sega:

    I just want to comment to all you two faced FUCKS who are in support of this new “cumshot 360 model”….You guys must be retarded or high on crack if you think the new 360 looks beautiful.

    And it rightfully should be called Xbox “Prosthetic” because the fucken thing is on life support now. This new kineetic alakazam piece of shit is a pillar for microshaft’s dying originality and lack of coolness.

    Whoever said that Microsoft is innovative needs to shoved a axe spray up his arse!

    “There’ll be plenty of sales, don’t worry about that.”

    Yeah from whom??? Santa Clause!? lmao ha ha ha pwned :)

  61. MisterX:

    Star wars game is looking good although it’s a little slow on the movement wise. If I heard right the game is 100% kinect so controlless.
    In all honesty, games like dance dance revolution is just playing step with plastic mattress and sometimes you missed the 4 directional arrow etc. What I saw in Harmonix studio truly redefines dancing/music games to a new level. Top Choreographer and music teaches you how to dance. I am not saying that I will buy it so I can be a dancer, but my daughter would love to learn from it.
    The video chat is cool too I mean sure ps3 eye toy can do that too, can it? Put it simply getting Kinect are not only for game but for dashboard too include movie, music, sports with trivia etc, social and taking picture all in one. I buy kinect not for the game but just the living room entertainment alone justifies the cost. If and I say if, the future is controless, than rechargeable battery is no longer an argument.

  62. harry sachz:

    Thanks Barnabe. But that only shows how to stream it to your machine when in the XMB. What I want to do is have my own stuff streaming while playing Split/Second. I used to do it with Forza because besides an Alkaline Trio song, everything else on the soundtrack kinda sucked.

  63. The Future of Sega:

    Ok I’ll be honest I’m fascinated by the new xbox slim but I’m pissed off that Microsoft keeps dicking over it’s loyal fans. I for one am NOT an Xbox fanboy…anymore….but I do play 360.

    I wished that the BP oil spill hovered over to Microsoft head quarters and smudged the stupid assess out of the office.

    STOP SCREWING YOUR LOYAL FANBASE OVER MICROSOFT!!! Yeah, keep word “SOFT”. They will never be “MACRO” if they keep that shit up….

    I need a beer….

    just go to http://gunclub.ea.com

    @Roca, kinect is 150, it was just released

  70. thumsy:

    @boxel, your right it really sucked major dick

  72. b0xel:

    the new ghost recon’s looking good though.

  73. harry sachz:

    Barnabe,

    It’s a blast! It’s pretty much an arcade racer where you can set off bombs etc to wreck the cars in front of you.

    I’ve only played it for around half an hour, but i’ve been having fun with it. I am looking forward to going online with it tonight.

  74. harry sachz:

    kinect has been released? Is it November already?

  78. Roca.:

    just two videos :( but there will more on the way

  79. CAD:

    Come on Roca Wi-Fi also came out on the Wii and the HD is not built in. It’s still removable which is perfect because being able to transport your memory to a Friends 360 is key.

  80. CAD:

    Well I must admit the new 360 looks really good. I’m tempted just for the fact that Kinect will not need additional power for the new 360. To be honest this is the best time to pick up a 360 because all the old models and going on Fire Sale. I might just pick up an Arcade since the Hard Drive are removable. LOL

    Anyways I speculate that Kinect will cost $50 to $100 because a bundled Kinect with a 360 will be $350 to $400. I can’t see Microsoft going higher then that.

  81. CAD:

    I’m having a hard time finding a feed online. That’s clear. I cant get the feel of the conference without see the whole thing All that’s online is bits and pieces of the conference. I’m sure I’ll be on the dashboard probably by tomorrow.

  82. Roca.:

    @CAD
    “Kinect’s price-tag was the only thing missing from Microsoft’s E3 Press Conference, but a retailer has confirmed Kinect’s pricing. According to Gamestop, Kinect will be available for $149.99. Bundles with Xbox 360′s Kinect sensor including the Xbox 360 will be up to $400 according to Gamestop. There will be multiple Kinect Bundles according to Gamestop including an Arcade Bundle for $299.99 and Elite Bundle for $399.99.”

    Am I the only one to notice that any games that don’t require you to move at a snails pace didn’t put you on screen?
    The chick was gold and the dancer was a little white guy in the box.

    I have to admit the chick dance was hot. But how many people will look that good? Not many.

    The sports stuff is crap and not for me.

    The dance stuff was ok but the rest of the games
    looked gay.

    I have to admit, jumping looked better in reach.
    Reach and Gears looked good.

    Also I think the pre e3 news from Sony was better then the entire MS show.

  85. twilight:

    I will definetely be getting the new model of the Xbox360 system soon. It’s just a matter of when. In addition to ESPN, Xbox360 will be getting the search function for Netflix too. This is cool. Does anyone know if the new Xbox360 still has the external power brick?

  86. Roca.:

    your wish came true man…Sly Cooper Collection in HD will be reveal tomorrow

  87. Roca.:

    @Twilight
    don’t you have a 360 already? I believe older 360 model will also be able to do ESPN and Netflix, and yes the new 360 still have a power brick but its a bit smaller.

  88. twilight:

    Roca,
    I’m aware that all Xbox360′s will do the same thing. I just like having newer models of gaming machines. I got rid of my older Ps3 to get the Ps3 slim.

  89. Barnabe Jones:

    Kinect games will not only have a slightly different logo, but also… wait for it… wait for it… PURPLE boxes, as opposed to the neon green. :D

    cheap looking disjointed redesign. obviously no japanese involvement here.

    a cheaper sku would have been a better offering

  95. phranctoast:

    The only game on kinetic that had me remotely excited was the star wars game.

    Kotaku doused any excitement there. They called it an on rails game similar to rebel assault. The limitations of kinetic are showing already.

    I guess the star wars lightsaber battle with Proper motion control still hasn’t been announced.

    Please Sony. Do something with this.

  96. Rimmer:

    phranctoast – considering they have only just started developing the Starwars title, it is interesting how Kotaku are able to pass judgement on it (unless they have just based it on the snippet shown at the conference)check out the E3 coverage on GTtv for more info on a lot of the stuff that MS announced.
    gunstar – they are offering a cheaper SKU by dropping the price of the arcade to $149 and the previous elite to $249

    Yes, PSluts like to forget the fact that PS3 was overpriced for the general market in the first place, that people would have bought a slim model regardless, that the new 360 is practically half the size of the original, is quiet, has the GPU and CPU integrated on a 45nm die, is more power efficient, produces less heat, has two more USB drives, is touch sensitive, and still has last gen BC (something which Sony has yet to bring back to current PS3 models, and has adamantly stated they never will).

    The new model doesn’t cost less because Microsoft isn’t forced to price it less as Sony was with the slim. If 360 was still third in total sales as PS3 currently is, things might be different, as it is, they still maintain a comfortable enough lead and enough demand to maintain their current pricing structure.

  98. CarlB:

    “they are offering a cheaper SKU by dropping the price of the arcade to $149 and the previous elite to $249″

    These prices are only for remaining stock. A new $199 model is expected. Ultimately, there will still be only two SKU’s remaining at the same prices, $299 and $199.

    http://www.engadget.com/2010/06/14/slim-xbox-360-gets-official-at-299-shipping-today-looks-angul/

  99. CarlB:

    Roca, quit saying 360 copied the slim concept from PS3. Nobody from Microsoft is calling it “slim”, it is simply called “the new XBox 360″; and Genesis had a “slim” version way before PS3 ever did.

    It’s funny half the shit the PSluts were bitching about before is now integrated/fixed, yet all they can do now is whine and moan about how it was “stolen”.

  100. JofaMang:

    Good for MS, this is the sort of refresh they were in dire need of, considering how stale their games catalogue has gotten.

    overclock.net has a hilarious thread going, quite a few people noticed how in the star wars “demo” the video was moving before the person who was “playing” the demo. In other words, straight up bullshit.

  102. Rimmer:

    Like I said, they are still only referring to the snippet of the game shown at the conference according to the interview held by GTtv after the event with the head of MS games studio – h++p://www.gametrailers.com/e3/livefeed/microsoft
    around time point 02:04:30
    This is a first party game and hasn’t even gotten a name yet, that is how early into development they are and won’t be out until 2011.
    What surprised me was that there was no mention whatsoever of and 3D by MS. They seem to e leaving it up to 3rd parties to bring this up (LG, EA etc)

  103. Rimmer:

    JofaMang – they were referring to the Kintect unveiling from the previous day and It is pretty obvious that everything shown there was pre-recorded. It is they only way anyone could guarantee a smooth running of such a heavily choreographed show.

  110. Roca.:

    @Phran
    Kotaku got confirmation from a creditable source that Sony will be announcing Sly Collection (which means Sly 4 is on the way), Patapon 3 and a new game that most PS fans have been waiting for. I won’t say what game it is because I don’t want to spoil the announcement (but you and I have been waiting for it to happen).

    somebody was spotted at E3 yesterday, cough…cough from E.S.P studios ;)

  111. phranctoast:

    “what are ppl’s though so far about MS’s conference?”

    -I thought Kinetic is the best peripheral for dance and exercise video games.

    -ESPN with kinetic is cool.

    -New game announcement with Crytek could be cool.

    Everything else we pretty much knew already.
    -Gears 3-awesome
    -Halo Reach-well…Halo
    -COD:BO- cool but multiplat
    -MGR-Awesome and multiplat (hopefully move compatible)

    Like I just previously said. Sly Collection is a better announcement than their whole conference. But who knows…maybe the Crytek game will be F’in awesome.

  112. ncaissie:

    “haha PSluts”
    Good one but doesn’t roll off the tongue like xbot.

  113. Roca.:

    1 new game announcement (Crytek) and the rest was Kinetic-centric show

    “Aside from the new game from Crytek and a time exclusivity deal for future Call of Duty add-on content, there was really no big new exclusives for the 360. Considering that Sony is announcing sequels left and right, it makes me wonder if Microsoft has moved a lot of it’s development muscle to the Kinect.”

  119. ncaissie:

    “So who plans on getting the Xbox Handjob when it comes out?”

    Unless MS starts making games at the same class as GOW3 and Uncharted 2 then I’ll pass. I have to admit Gears looked great and I may borrow my brothers 360 and rent it when it comes out. That is if they still have the 360. They don’t want to sell it because they know they won’t get much for it.

  120. phranctoast:

    LMAO.. seriously I’m glad you guys love the “Handjob” comment. I kinda feel like thats what the whole thing has become though. MS just seems to be “jerking” us around with the whole naming shit.

  130. Roca.:

    @ncaissie
    Sony = 3PM and Nintendo = 12PM.

    what was boring and depressing was the ppl doing to talking at MS’s conference. Glad none of them stayed on the stage for more than 10 mins.

    Sony should stick with Tretton for the whole show. or just upgrade him with Kevin Butler ;)

  131. Roca.:

    look @ CloneB arguing/mocking with one of their own..
    FahKin has been very clear about his 360 preference but he at least keep it real

  132. Rimmer:

    “MS just seems to be “jerking” us around with the whole naming shit” to be fair they have been saying from day 1 that Natal was only the development name and that they would release the product name closer to the time. Wave was just something dreamt up in the rumour mill and had nothing to do with MS.
    phranctoast – the video clip where they saw game play footage is what I am talking about. To quote kotaku: “An extended version of yesterday’s clip turned up today, and showed actual gameplay footage. This isn’t a revolution in motion-control gaming. It’s a 21st-century Rebel Assault.” then they show a link to the demo clip with ingame footage which was broadcast at the conference.

  133. FahKinSuPah:

    @carl

    “Wand? Arc? Move? WTF!?

    From now on I’m referring to it as the PSchlong.”

    I thought it was the PS-Dildo?

    I had heard that when Sony was doing R&D for the Move the codename was the Ron Jeremy Project

  134. CarlB:

    Aw, little Almond is upset… imagine that… “keepin’ it real” lol.

  135. FahKinSuPah:

    @Roca

    Thanks for the kind words

    “he at least keep it real”

    Funny thing is Ivan’s mom told me that last night

  136. Roca.:

    I think this pretty much sums everything up

    “Everyone knew that Microsoft was going to focus on Kinect for their press conference, but I did not think they would have spent just about half their conference talking about it. After the first couple of games were shown for Kinect, it was almost like Microsoft was beating us over the head with the same shovelware titles that have been seen on the Wii. Another thing about this part of the conference was the fact that the videos seemed to be pre-recorded and the people on stage just seemed to be mimicking what was going on in the screen. This portion of Microsoft’s conference was pretty painful to watch to say the least.”

  137. CarlB:

    I thought about it Fahkin, but it was already overused. The original PSchlong didn’t light up, but the latest version, codenamed Rudolph, did. PSchlong v.R will be ready in time for Christmas festivities ;)

  138. phranctoast:

    @Roca
    They really ripped the conference and Kinetic a new one on that site.

  139. phranctoast:

    and it vibrates.

  140. CarlB:

    it might as well be ribbed too lol.

  141. FahKinSuPah:

    “Everyone knew that Microsoft was going to focus on Kinect for their press conference”

    I have to agree with that. Of course I also knew they were going to throw in the new Slim 360 as well. Honestly, even though I already have a 360 I am more interested in seeing more info for the new model than I am about the Handjob

    “it was almost like Microsoft was beating us over the head with the same shovelware titles that have been seen on the Wii.”

    And that is EXACTLY the kind of bullshit that has me not really caring about the Handjob or the PS Move. Because the last few years have seen a fucking increase in the fucking amount of stupid fucking shit-ware. Handjob and Move just mean 2 more outlets for “Fuck me too!” shit-ware

  142. Barnabe Jones:

    I think MS isn’t trying to make Kenetic for their existing audience or anyone here for that matter. It’s obviously geared wholeheartedly towards the Wii’s audience.

    Even the E3 show was divided into two separate sections. The first half of the show was dedicated to the games people are interested in, than the show did a definitive 180 degree turn, into a completely different demographic.

    Hardcore (for lack of a better word) gamers were expecting at least something Natal related that would appeal to them. But it never came.

    I think the fact that they went as far as to use a different color for the Natal games boxes, really highlights that the games are not for the typical 360 fan.

  143. b0xel:

    PSluts?
    does that make you the Xbitches?

  144. CarlB:

    FYI the Kinect’s “killer app” will be the Napoleon Dynamite movie game featuring you in “The Happy Hands Club”.

  145. FahKinSuPah:

    @Barnabe

    “Hardcore (for lack of a better word) gamers were expecting at least something Natal related that would appeal to them. But it never came. ”

    Wasn’t there some sort of Starwars game that was shown? I heard only a little bit about it but it sounded like it had more promise than alot of the other shit.

  146. FahKinSuPah:

    @Carl

    “FYI the Kinect’s “killer app” will be the Napoleon Dynamite movie game featuring you in “The Happy Hands Club”

    I thought the “killer app” was going to be the “Vote for Pedro dance show”

  147. CarlB:

    Nah, that would be PTwats b0xel :)

  148. Roca.:

    Xbitches
    LMAOO

    “The Kinect software shown at the conference was as impressive as a pillow fort. None of the new casual games seemed to click with me like how Nintendo pulled it off with Wii Sports. Most games ranged from mediocre (the Harmonix dancing game) to bad (Kinect Adventures) to the plain creepy (Kinectimals).”

  149. b0xel:

    Ok….
    so, Is anyone here going to watch the ninti event?

  150. Roca.:

    I’ll try…but I think MS reminded why I stop watching Nintendos conference

  151. Barnabe Jones:

    FSP,

    Yeah there was a Star Wars game. I think it was a pretty early build, so it’s hard to say how it will end up.

    The Forza demo was by far the most impressive thing shown. Being able to actually walk around the car and zoom in on things was really cool.

  152. CarlB:

    That is just one level in the game Fahkin… you need to train before you can get there… your Skills… nunchuku skills, bow hunting skills, computer hacking skills… Another is drawing ligers and learning how to defend yourself with the STRENGTH of a grizzly, the reflexes of a PUMA, and the wisdom of a man at Rex Kwan Do’s dojo.

  153. Barnabe Jones:

    I’m watching Nintendo’s. I want to see the new Zelda. :)

    I only caught bits and pieces of Ubisoft and EA’s. I learned the hard way not to watch them all.

    Ubisoft’s show last year was brutal. James Cameron was babbling about Avatar for 20 minutes straight. Also Joel Mccale doesn’t make a good host. I like his show – The Soup – but he sucks as a host.

  154. CarlB:

    “Xbitches

  158. Rimmer:

    I was wondering whether the very long lag between the movements of the gamer and the action on the bigscreen was going to be a problem, but seeing the footage from EAs conference where the same thing happens with PS3 and Wii games, I realize it is actually just a delay in sending the signal to the big screen, not actually occurring whilst playing.

  159. FahKinSuPah:

    @Roca

    LMAO! that is funny as shit.

    About as funny as seeing a white guy behind the counter of a dunkin donuts greet a drunk guy with an indian accent.

    “Hello welcome to Dunkin Donuts. How may I be helping you?”

    The drunk guy looked so confused. Wish I could have gotten that up on Youtube

  160. Barnabe Jones:

    Hopefully they’ll set up demos for Natal in Move in stores. I think on screen demos only do so much. You’ll never actually know until you get to play around with it yourself.

  161. Barnabe Jones:

    WTF is up with the TV broadcasting of E3 this year. Spike only bought the exclusive rights to MS’s show I guess.

    It looks like Nintendo and Sony are going to be broadcasted on G4.

  162. JofaMang:

    So much tired crass unoriginality in coming up with a PS3 fanboy meme. Xbot works, because it is simple, and conjures up the totalitarian regimen one must have been subjected to in order to be a false-talking-point spewing robot. I use for examples: PS3rd – Closing the gap every year since its release 1 year behind the Xbox – DEBUNKED
    Pbot – weak ripoff that is more indicative of the user of the term, than who they are intending to insult. The equivalent of “I know you are but what am I?” DEBUNKED
    PTwat – Crass and ironic, coming from an iTwat. Please, regale us with more tales of Apples super-awesome gaming platform! DEBUNKED
    PSlut – See PTwat Above

    How About…
    PSRapedMe
    This would work, if there was any reason for anyone to feel like they have been violated. There isn’t, unless you are an Xbot who takes the PS3 as the enemy, then indeed, you have been violated by a superior adversary.

    Smells-Like-Pee
    In the same league as PTwat, surprised I am the first one to come up with it.

    PSThrii
    If Move ends up being as casual as Kinetic obviously is, then this would be a great one. Of course, the fact that the hardware requirements will not be a hindrance to AAA titles (same can’t be said of Kinetic) means that there is at least the possibility of it being utilized well in non-wii ripoff titles. My doubts about their being a hardcore market for this have been well opined in these threads before.

    Well, if HH and gang are okay with MS new mii too direction, then let them be…

    But I had a feeling MS is switching its goals to the wii market…which is fine and dandy…but look at how many games really are worth it on the wii…zelda, mario, metroid, pikmin, pokemon, super smash bro….6 franchises a year…the rest of the games suck ass to the avg hardcore gamer….

    Look at ms lineup: fable, halo, forza, gears, with a few sprinkles of exclusives thrown in…the rest of thhe focus was Kinect…

    Sony has announced, killzone 3, lbp2, infamous2, socom, gt5, sly hd, that ICO game….and more I can’t remember to list and more TBA….that’s NOT even including stupid Move titles…..or new SKUs….Sony has this confference hands down….they doing a much better job of keeping their hardcore gamers happy with the onslaught of game announcements and slowly targeting the casual market..

  167. CarlB:

    “Closing the gap”
    Yes, because if you are in a race and are still in third at the end it really matters if you “closed the gap” before you lost.

    These terms go either way and can be applied to any dumbass who claims one machine is the only one with “games worth playing”. Denial of this is strange, coming from a plain Twat in general, who happens to also be a PBot Twat. Any claims of “originality” for the term XBot from anybody here is as ludicrous as thinking they are actually being original in criticizing somebody else’s equally ridiculous term.

    Of course, a long diatribe in favor of PS3 vs 360 fan terminology here does imply one has been at least mentally raped by the PR mindwash of Sony, albeit with the symptoms including only a slightly prettier, although equally vacuous written expression resembling that of Ivan.

    “Smells-Like-Pee”… considering one cannot “smell” others over the internet, you might want to check your trousers… no one can blame you however, as you are truly “special” and not expected to be in control of your own bodily functions. At least that is the least offensive result of your having “opined” in these threads.

    It looks like it was really strongly built around motion controls. But if it doesn’t control well, than that kills the game.

    I’m interested to see public reaction of the demo.

  208. Roca.:

    Epic Mickey looks good

  209. Barnabe Jones:

    Epic Mickey looked good.

    3DS, meh

  210. Roca.:

    3DS has one single analog stick, you will think it will have two sticks since it is one of the main issues on the PSP

  211. b0xel:

    yea, I didn’t watch it, after MS and Ubisoft, I just can’t inflect this shit on myself anymore.(I want those 4 hours back, its not fairtime)
    I’m still waiting for sony, they better not desapoint.

  212. Barnabe Jones:

    3DS seems just like the DS, but with the 3D gimmick. The movie’s are interesting

  213. b0xel:

    yea, I didn’t watch it, after MS and Ubisoft, I just can’t inflect this shit on myself anymore.(I want those 4 hours back, its not fair)

  215. Barnabe Jones:

    Wow Kid Iccurus looks really good.

  216. Barnabe Jones:

    Yeah your right. Game play looked very Zelda-ish though.

  217. phranctoast:

    GoldenEye….seriously?

    Why bother?
    really?
    Why bother?

    There’s been plenty of Bond games since Goldeneye and none of them have been able to recreate it.

    Activision already did Quantum of Solace (54 MC score)

    Rare is not making this, and even if they were, they were not the same Rare anymore.

  218. Roca.:

    I want one of those 3D girls ;)

  219. Roca.:

    not bad Nintendo..

  220. ncaissie:

    sounds bad.
    I’ll have to watch it tonight.
    Can’t from work.

  221. Barnabe Jones:

    Wasn’t there also a Golden Eye for ps2? It really looked like a PS2 game also.. and early PS2 game.

    But that was one of the least important announcements.
    -Zelda
    -Donkey Kong
    -Kurby
    -Iccurus
    -Mikey

    Great show.

  222. Barnabe Jones:

    Also Metal Gear, Kingdom Hearts, Final Fantasy, and tons of 3DS games.

  223. Barnabe Jones:

    It’s weird. Both MS and Nintendo did complete 180s this year.

  224. twilight:

    “I want one of those 3D girls.”
    Lol. You guys really quack me up.

  227. Roca.:

    @Twilight
    hahahaha I couldn’t help it :(

  228. ncaissie:

    I don’t think Halo or Gears is shovelware.

  229. ncaissie:

  230. Roca.:

  234. Roca.:

    I will only be able to watch the first hour since I leave at 4pm…but I’m sure Sony will have on the PSN store later on today.

  235. Barnabe Jones:

    I was counting down the minuets with MS’s show, but the time really flew by with Nintendo’s. Very, very impressed.

    IDK, Sony has a hard act to follow now…

  236. Roca.:

    Wii vitality?……

    I liked how nintendo stayed with Reggie Fils-aime for the whole show, unlike MS who kept bring up all kinds of clowns

  237. stopstopp:

    Geez sony already has had a lot of games announced, I wonder what else will be there

  238. Roca.:

    I just got some big leaks for Sony’s conference, if you dont mind being spoiled let me know. I’ll send you a PM over blorge

  239. Barnabe Jones:

    They didn’t even show Vitality, did they? If so I missed it.

    I think the 2 casual types of games were Just Dance 2 and Mario Sports Party.

  240. Barnabe Jones:

    Wii Sports party also… ok 3 crappy games. Still not bad.

  241. Barnabe Jones:

    Yeah send it my way!

  242. Roca.:

    no vitality…that’s why I was shocked!

  243. Roca.:

    @BJ
    sent.

  244. Barnabe Jones:

    Yeah, it was pretty much surprise announcement after surprise announcement.

  245. Barnabe Jones:

    Wow that’s awesome.

  246. Roca.:

    yup..totally unexpected!

  247. Barnabe Jones:

    lol it’s funny that MS sold their exclusive rights to E3 to the highest bidder. That says a lot.

  248. Barnabe Jones:

    Here we go…

  249. twilight:

    I hope Sony has it on PSN because I’m missing everything again.
    Roca,
    It’s okay to look. Afterall, we all have eyes to see. I certainly expect LA to right the ship tonight but we’ll see.

    “I love how quiet the xbots are.

    More like bored to death by your ludicrously deranged faboy ravings.

  251. Wylie77:

    I’m I the only perv who is curious what the Kinect would do if you had sex in front of it?

  252. Happyhockum:

    fanboy even

  253. Happyhockum:

    Wylie77

    I presume you mean with someone else of the opposite sex there doing it too at the same time?

    My guess would be that it would just explode in shock at the Pbot kiddies actually managing it, finally.

  254. Roca.:

    “I’m I the only perv who is curious what the Kinect would do if you had sex in front of it?”

    you will get banned till year 9999 ;)

  255. b0xel:

    “I’m I the only perv who is curious what the Kinect would do if you had sex in front of it?”
    it will get jealous and attack your sorry ass.

  256. Wylie77:

    Sorry HH, but I may prefer the PS3 and you can call me a fanboy if you like, however I don’t go around slamming everything Xbox. I also didn’t know that my sexual preference was an issue.

    I think it would be interesting what the little Mii characters would look like. I’m sure we will all find out on Youtube come November.

  257. phranctoast:

    @Roca

    Roca

    Go wet your panties, cry and whinge to someone who cares – if you can find anyone (highly doubtful).

  260. Roca.:

    10 mins until the big show start

  261. phranctoast:

    @Roca
    If that’s true, Sony wins E3 hands down. Even one of those announcements are enough. I’ll believe it when I see it though.

  262. Roca.:

    We’ll see, but they look legit, dont they ;)

  263. Barnabe Jones:

    Blow my mind Sony. I dare you..

  267. ncaissie:

    I can see the internet getting lots of photos of people playing in the nude. Specially on the games where it takes action shots.

    “Daniel Terdiman:
    We’ve come to E3 with momentum on our side…Just passed 10 consecutive months of growth.

    Daniel Terdiman:
    Says Tretton, that is. ”

    WTF is that about? He doesn’t believe him. Just check MS’s fiscal reports. LOL

  274. Barnabe Jones:

  306. Roca.:

    he did ‘not’ disappoint

  307. Barnabe Jones:

    I feel a lot better about it.

  309. Roca.:

  347. Barnabe Jones:

    360 Recap:

    -Gears, Halo, Fable

    -20 to 30 casual games all controlled by flailing your arms around, and all based off of Wii and PS2/3 games.

    -360 slim. No price drop.

    All in all, it sucked ass.

  366. Barnabe Jones:

    Valve is on G4 now.

    Sounds like PS3 is getting day and date patches and content.

  367. CON:

    I haven’t got around to watching it yet but $50 for PSN and still no cross game chat? What a scam.

  368. Happyhockum:

    LMAO

    Hypocrites.

    PSN you pay for is now wonderful.

    Saddos.

  369. Barnabe Jones:

    Wucht yo talkin’ ’bout Willis? PSN is free.

    No artificial wall blocks us from playing online.

  370. Barnabe Jones:

    M$:

    $50 for online play and access to demos.

    PSN+:

    Or $50 for games, content, early demos, digital magazine, etc

    Or PSN Free online play and access to the store

    Who’s getting screwed here?

  371. Barnabe Jones:

    Dante in Marvel vs Capcom 3!

  372. Liquid:

    i gotta agree with happy. . .we are all gona be hypocrites but im still paying for it because of automatic updates, free games and early access to beta’s. 12euro for 3months isnt bad and neither is 40euro a year plus 3months free.

    Sonys press conference was brilliant but one thing. . .WHERE THE FUCK WAS RESISTANCE 3!?!? oh and the best version of portal on PS3! nice. . .oh and exclusive content on lots of third party games! cant wait for medal of honour. . .

    The alliance between Sony and EA is brilliant! now that activision and Microsoft are allies. . .the console war between Sony and Microsoft will get a lot more interesting..

  373. CON:

    @BARNIE

    You’ve changed your tune about paid subscription.

    Even at $50 PSN is second rate to LIVE

  374. Barnabe Jones:

    I’ll check out the 3 free months. If they give out enough good worthwhile games and perks, I’d consider it. I kind of don’t think I will though.

  375. Roca.:

    nothing that affects the online part of PSN will be included in PSN+ (hence game chat)

    @Liquid
    even if you subscribe, you are not being a hypocrite because you are paying to get paid content..on the other hand, xbot pay so they can be allow to play with friends online. I have said many time that the “pay to play online” is what we have been very critical about.

  376. Liquid:

    roca

    yeah true. that sorcery game looked really fun, and twisted metal blew my mind! was a really good press conference. just dissappointed we didnt get to see starhawk, resistance 3 and until dawn. btw i guess mass effect and left for dead are pretty much confirmed for PS3 since all these deals between sony and ea. . .and valve can now program for PS3. what did you think of this E3?

  377. Liquid:

    oh forget to mention the deal between coca-cola and Sony. . .very nice move.

  378. Liquid:

    oh forget to mention the deal between coca-cola and Sony. . .very nice move.

  379. Liquid:

    oh forget to mention the deal between coca-cola and Sony. . .very nice move.

  380. Roca.:

    “You’ve changed your tune about paid subscription.
    Even at $50 PSN is second rate to LIVE”

    that bullshit, what we have complained about what about MS charging ppl to be able to play online and not the whole subscription “idea”

    PSN+ doesnt restrict you from anything unlike XBL gold.

  381. Barnabe Jones:

    I’m honestly not sure there will be a Resistance 3 at this point.

    Insomniac is going to be tied up with their EA game.

    I’m happy to see Ratchet and Clank will be coming back.

  382. Barnabe Jones:

    I feel meh about PSN+.

    I’m surprisingly looking forward to Move though. They showed a lot of games that I would play that are supporting it.

    Also Sorcery and Move Heroes looked good. It was cool to see new worthwhile Move games in the works.

  383. Roca.:

    @Liquid
    did you get to see Kevin Butler?

    “Am I crazy, or did I just see 100 French acrobat prancing around an arena the other night” – Kevin Butler

  384. Barnabe Jones:

    “chats can only be initiated by PlayStation Plus members.

    PlayStation Plus members will be able to send invites to any member of the PlayStation Network, free or paid”

  385. Roca.:

    What I liked about move (since I not to excited about motion controls) is that it’s option for hardcore games like Dead Space 2, Killzone 3, Socom 4….wow who would have believed buttons will be needed in the future?

    all info about Playstation at E3
    http://us.playstation.com/e3-2010/

    they didnt focus too much on the motion crap..They showed Sorcery which looked awesome and they quickly moved on to keep talking about games.

  390. Roca.:

    I just read PSN+ members will get LBP for free right off the bat. I read it in the European PS blog so it might be a EU-only deal.

    geeze. after that Twisted Metal video I needed a cig.

    Dead Space 2 looks f’in insane.

  392. Roca.:

    @Phranc
    Hahahha…I knew Jaffe was full of shit!! I was waiting for it to be announced

  393. Barnabe Jones:

    E3 Report Cards:

    M$: D-

    They at least showed the usually suspects: Halo, Gears, and Fable. After that through, the show took a nose dive. Natal was a massive disappointment. Every piece of Natal software was a casual title. Not only that, but blatant copies of other games.

    The show was painfully boring and dry. If I was in the audience, I would have thrown a tomato at that douche host they have.

    Nintendo: B+

    They had the best momentum. It was just surprise announcement after surprise announcement.

    Sony: B+

    Less surprise announcements, but better over all games. The amount of 3D and Move compatible titles was impressive.

  394. ToshithegreaT:

    “Twisted Metal wins E3 for Sony!!”

    Yup the only new game announced just like kingdom’s for xbox 360

  395. b0xel:

    god damn it, i missed it and I can’t seem to find the whole thing anywhere………. help!!!!!!

    Sony won with the Sly collection.

    Not to mention the new games announced.

    Sony blew its “Surprise load” with all the announcements the few weeks prior to E3.

    Where the only time MS did what was with Gears 3 in April.

  402. Roca.:

    @Toshi
    yeah but Kingdoms is a noname title and can’t be compare to Twisted Metal…and at least Sony showed gameplay

    but they did announced all their games prior to E3.
    Motorstorm 3, Infamous 2, Socom 4, LBP2, Killzone 3, Ghost of Sparta and more.

    vs just Gears 3 for MS

  403. b0xel:

    Have you heard what Roca said about Home? Weren’t you asking about something like that before?

    sweeeeeeeeeeeeeeeet, the conference Part1 is up in the PS store!! see ya.

  406. phranctoast:

    Awesome.

    Stupid G4 on Fios is not in HD. Or if it is, I haven’t found the channel.

  407. Barnabe Jones:

    I have Comcast, they added G4HD and a bunch of others a few months ago.

    Over all, the channel kind of sucks. Every day it’s like 22.5 hours of cops, or Ninja Warrior, or cheaters.

    They only have one half hour show about games.

  408. Barnabe Jones:

    I know I said this before, but…

    It’s funny that MS sold the exclusive television rights for their E3 show to the highest bidder.

    They should have spent the time and effort on tightening up their show.

    So u were surprised now, to found abt a game that launched 3 years ago on your ps3, ya sure u sure aint dumb ;)

    try harder next time, maybe u cud have comeback by then :) owning is everything jk ;)

  410. ToshithegreaT:

    3 maybe. lol

    June 15th, 2010

    @ncaissie
    Halo and Gears have been already announced. I listed “unannounced games” aside from all the shovelware

    @Toshi

    So u meant to say an exclusive game by crytek cant be compared to “REBOOT” to a decade old franchise, ya i sure it wont ;)

    @roca

    So your point actually ?? we cant count halo, fable, crackdown 2, The secret war, kingdom under fire 2, mass effect 3 ???

  414. oldschool1987:

    Mass Effect 3? WTF!? That ain’t even been announced lmao

  415. ToshithegreaT:

    @roca

    Ghost of sparta ???

    Psp game vs 360 games, seriously ??

  416. ToshithegreaT:

    Mass Effect 3 Development Has Begun

    http://www.1up.com/do/newsStory?cId=3178497

  418. ToshithegreaT:

    “360 Slim …Microsoft have definitely done what has never been done before! lol”

    @oldie
    ya it is,
    for the sake of argument, i hope u were serious

    More features have been added without increasing the price, while simultaneously price cut on other models without taking features out :) hope that clears the air for ya

  419. CAD:

    Personally I must say I find Sony dig at Nintendo and Microsoft to be quite childish and distasteful. Sony has hit rock bottom when you resort to publicly dissing the competition when your in last place and it`s Sony fault and no one else`s. Their games should speak for themselves instead of them crying about it. I came to see games not to see Sony act desperate. it was very pathetic.

  420. ToshithegreaT:

    “Personally I must say I find Sony dig at Nintendo and Microsoft to be quite childish and distasteful.”

    @CAD

    I for one am quite pleased with Sony’s behaviour, as it not only keeps Microsoft on their heels, while at the same time people’s perception abt Sony was changing a LOT which was far more dangerous to Nintendo and Microsoft, so with the help of Kevin Butler, Sony is once again coming off as arrogant and will be hopefully put back to the place it deserves..

    3ds has really caught my attention with 3d without glasses stuff (as i already wear specs), i m looking forward to it, might even buy one..

    So i feel ninetendo won this years e3, while Sony and Microsoft come at second

    +1 to Sony for showing awesome hardcore and the move’s titles..

    +1 to Microsoft for showing some awesme hardcore plus, making me personally excited for kinect (atleast for the awesome kinect integration with dashboard and live features, for now plus kinectimals cho chweet)

    and announcing the hottest looking console right now with more features at no additional cst :)

  421. phranctoast:

    “Sony has hit rock bottom when you resort to publicly dissing the competition when your in last place and it`s Sony fault and no one else`s.”

    Just for you CAD
    http://gamer.blorge.com/2010/06/11/greenberg-attempts-to-deflate-sonys-pre-e3-wave-with-old-sales-figures/

    I’d say the public dissing was for humor.

  422. ToshithegreaT:

    @phranc

    but wasn’t the report from NPD and didnt he twitted it..

    Kevin butler on the other hand is acting like as if its still ps2 era and dissing other confrences and equipment, if sony appointed him as the ps3 ambassdor for US, no wonder ps3 is still lagging behind 360 in US

  423. phranctoast:

    I was under the impression the info was NPD but not a report by them. Why would NPD get involved with flame wars?

    Even Aaron Greenberg found the humor in Kevin butler disses of Natal and wii in the commercial from the future. Disguise it with humor. It makes it all better.

    My favorite line didn’t even come from KB. When Gabe Newell was talking about the Sony hate, and being introduced to KB as the VP of sharpening things. That made the show ;)

  424. Roca.:

    Toshi never fails to amuse me with his stupitity.

  425. Roca.:

    stupidity*
    you haven’t changed, you’re still full of shit and still have no clue what the fuck you are talking about….you just go off googling shit and going by what you find there

    few quotes about MS conferences:

    “The Kinect software shown at the conference was as impressive as a pillow fort. None of the new casual games seemed to click with me like how Nintendo pulled it off with Wii Sports. Most games ranged from mediocre (the Harmonix dancing game) to bad (Kinect Adventures) to the plain creepy (Kinectimals).”

    “Everyone knew that Microsoft was going to focus on Kinect for their press conference, but I did not think they would have spent just about half their conference talking about it. After the first couple of games were shown for Kinect, it was almost like Microsoft was beating us over the head with the same shovelware titles that have been seen on the Wii. Another thing about this part of the conference was the fact that the videos seemed to be pre-recorded and the people on stage just seemed to be mimicking what was going on in the screen. This portion of Microsoft’s conference was pretty painful to watch to say the least.”

    “Aside from the new game from Crytek and a time exclusivity deal for future Call of Duty add-on content, there was really no big new exclusives for the 360. Considering that Sony is announcing sequels left and right, it makes me wonder if Microsoft has moved a lot of it’s development muscle to the Kinect.”

    enjoy :D

  426. Happyhockum:

    What a load of b*llocks.

    If you have Xbox you’re probably only really that interested in the Xbox stuff, vis-versa with the other consoles.

    The idea that a bunch of PR guys doing their (actually similar) turns actually ‘won’ much of anything is laughable.
    It’s a show.
    You watch it for the stuff relevant to you, mostly.

    I have only a small vague interest in what Sony or Ninetendo did because I do not own Sony or Nintendo consoles.
    I expect something similar with others who own other consoles in relation to Microsoft & Xbox.

    So the idiotic wittering BS of the usual tedious fanboys tooting their all for the fav CE corp means nothing to me.

    It’s always the same Pbot gang ranting their arrogant snooty BS 24/7 here…..what a shame the sales figures have their so-called ‘superior’ game console trailing in 3rtd spot, still.

    Denial ??

    for treating games likes well GAMES rather than first party and third party, suddenly a multiplatform title isn’t fun enough compared to a thrird party exclusive and that third party game cannot be compared to first party lol

    u think ps3 has the best line up coz u like those kinds of games, i prefer the ones on 360 but i dont belittle ps3 games for it unless provoked.. thats thedifference between multiconsole owners like carlb, harry , oldie twillight, ME and muppets like u he he

    Halo, Gears and Fable were in tow, the Kinect app functionality was very impressive, and a few of the casual games didn’t look half bad either. Also, Metal Gear Solid Rising looks awesome. Very awesome. And yet,

    I think I’m most excited about the ESPN partnership. It looks like the new way I’ll be watching most of my sporting events.”

    I really don’t know what there is to argue about. It’s almost unfair to the 360 only owners.

    Sony had hands down the better show of the two.

    Casual stuff aside, (because both covered this well with Kinetic and Move) Sony showed up with the most representation in hardcore games (my biggest focus). Try as you might, but this is a straight up fact and arguing against it makes you look like a fool.

    3D dims the image. Shutter glasses/polaroid glasses dim the image.

    Here’s what one reviewer (not a fanzine game site writer) had to say –

    “game runs at a seriously reduced resolution in order to compensate for the doubled framerate of 3D. All the assists and art direction still shine, and the game still looks pretty good, but there are tons of “jaggies,” and you notice the lost fidelity every time you get a glimpse of the game running in 2D”

    Yeah, it must have been so ‘awesome’ at the show for Sony.

    I’m only speaking for myself here… MAG and WKC seemed to be underwhelming in both reviews and sales… are they really awesome games to brag about? I’m not so sure. God of War 3 was excellent, but short lived… I donated it recently to the library here… beyond that, I’ll eventually rent Heavy Rain but could care less about Mod Nation… though I might give Sly Collection and LBP2 a shot later this year… for the most part I see more interesting things happening on the multiplatform front than I do the exclusive front, but that’s just me I guess.

    To me, PSN Plus was the most important news from the Sony conference, and I will be one of the first to try it later this month… other than that, I have already preordered Kinect from Amazon, based mainly upon OS nav via voice/gesture recognition, not games.

  464. Roca.:

    CarlB
    ok…..what’s your point?

    I could be an ass I say that I dont give a shit about Mass Effect 2, Splinter Cell Conviction and Alan Wake which is selling horrobly.

    Mass Effect seems to me like it was the short lived game here as God of War came out months after Mass Effect 2 (which is out on 2 platforms – hence multiplatform game) but still managed to become the best selling game of 2010 between 360 and PS3.

    MAG has sold more than a million and I bet you more ppl are playing it right now than the ppl play Splinter Cell. Multiplatform is ok as they will be also available on the PS3 that’s why I only mentioned the exclusive which are the game you “can’t” get anywhere other than PS3.

    counting “real exclusive” the 360 have 1 (Alan Wake) vs 6 from Sony.

    but I could use the same excuse as you and claim I dont give a shit about Mass Effect, Alan Wake or Splinter Cell..

    and a simple press of a “button” is far more convinient than waving your arms. I pre-order Move for the “games”. Socom 4 and Sorcery seems to play flawless with Move.

    You missed it roca, when I said the “exclusive front” I meant for all consoles, not just Sony’s. No need to go on the console warpath. If you are thoroughly enjoying MAG and WKC right now then more power to you.

    the bottomline is:
    Multiplatform, both systems are tied
    Exxclusive games library, sony takes it, hands down
    Online gameplay sony takes it, cuz its free
    Overall online content, with psn+, LIVE just edges out PSN, as it overall has more…
    Motion controls, tie as kinect overall is the more “innovative” control schem but Move just works better

    There ya have it folks ;)

    Those are some pretty big wrinkles my friend….some games were unresponsive, with lag, while others I read had issues with voice recognition, mainly there was even a joke where one person is playing and you could pass by and say xbox pause, at a critical gaming moment lol sounds funny, but I digress,, both need work..

    About 3D…who fukiin cares….NO ONE here has said 3D was the next coming….no one except the voices in your head….yes 3D on some games wowed and others yawned…its an added feature….big whoop…yet here you are crying about it….

    Here’s the thing your stupid brain can’t process….you like to point out that pbots bash the 360….well think and try and process what we are bashing:

    Hardware: it sucks…will the new one still rrod? Not sure but its still scratching disks..

    Pay to play online: you should actually be rooting for this…psn+ just made gold look like the ripoff it always has been…

    Lack of exclusive game variety: what’s there is cool, we are saying ms should bring more…compared to sony, ms exclusive lineup..looks paltry…

    Kinect: feel that kinect is taking away the focus from the hardcore aka everyone here on blorge, and putting it towards casual, at the cost of no hardcore lineup…..

    All these are gripes that favor a BETTER gaming enviroment for YOU 360 owners…..that’s why you look like the fool for arguing it….its like we are saying, “hey happy, ms left some shit on that 360, wipe it off,” and you are like ” its not shit man, its warranty, its value”…we are like whatever, we just trying to help you out…

    “we are saying ms should bring more…compared to sony, ms exclusive lineup..looks paltry…”

    For one, Sony has been in this gig a full massively successful generation longer… but there is nothing “paltry” or “casual” about Crackdown 2, Halo: Reach, Fable 3, Codename Kingdoms, Mass Effect 3, XCom, Champions Online, or Gears of War 3.

    “Kinect: feel that kinect is taking away the focus from the hardcore aka everyone here on blorge, and putting it towards casual, at the cost of no hardcore lineup…”

    As you can see, the hardcore lineup isn’t suffering. Kinect is still a nascent system tech, so they are starting with simple things. As time goes on we are likely to see more hardcore implementation, especially next gen with the next iteration. This is just a start. Sixaxis and EyeToy didn’t work out so well for Sony, so they are implementing Move to see if it does any better. No need to doom either Kinect or Move until more time has passed.

    All good CarlB

    But of those listed titles, 3-4 are just another sequel or whatnoot, BUT, to each his own. I just feel bad that, that’s ALL ms is bringing because they know, msbots will be satisfied wit that…imo, less than stellar lineup…giving them the time to waste on Kinect miitoo clones….I just feel, for this big a push, Kinect should have been MORE, it should make ps3bots WANT the 360, the way ps3 exclusive games have done to 360 fans….evident by people buying up ps3s in this very site, yourself included….that’s all…

    This should be great news now that Microsoft has released an Xbox 360 with built-in WiFi capabilities. For those who already have the old Xbox 360 though, who still want to get it connected to the internet wirelessly, here’s a nice alternative. Check out the Netgear Xbox 360 Internet Connection Kit. This device acts as an adapter that connects to your wireless router, so you can get your Xbox 360 connected to the internet even if it’s far from your wireless router.
