The graphics for the new Call of Duty are pretty great. It makes me optimistic of the upcoming games. Guess we gotta wait for E3 and other press conferences for those announcements. : /

This conference was even worse than I feared.  Multimedia crap!  Kinect!  Their biggest reveal (Call of Duty) is multiplatform anyway.

BTW, Wired has a story that is far more informative than this conference.  Interesting tidbit:

Quote
There’s one feature of Xbox One from which we can infer quite a few conclusions: You can install any game from the disc to the console’s hard drive, and then play that game whenever you like without having to put the disc in.

Wired asked Microsoft if installation would be mandatory. “On the new Xbox, all game discs are installed to the HDD to play,” the company responded in an emailed statement. Sounds mandatory to us.

What follows naturally from this is that each disc would have to be tied to a unique Xbox Live account, else you could take a single disc and pass it between everyone you know and copy the game over and over. Since this is clearly not going to happen, each disc must then only install for a single owner.

No used games confirmed.

That controller was pretty sexy, I tell you what.

Halo, the TV series...way to ruin that game franchise.

TASTY!

So Wii U has a shaky reputation among gamers, Xbox One has a nice looking dog and the PS4 promise an interesting future.

Oh geez.

Its technically great but nothing game related interested me at all.  And what is with the live action family?? Was that throwback footage from a 3DO game!?   Oh, and I still don't want to talk to my TV but apparently I'll have to get used to it.  I sure hope there are a lot more games at E3 besides sports and shooters.

That was the worst press conference I've seen since the last Microsoft press conference. Three games. Three games for a new console were shown at a video game press conference. The only truly interesting one being Remedy's new game. Microsoft better redeem itself at E3. PS4 is looking better and better.

This was more directed to a wider audience than gamers. Gotta sell that thing to the masses son!

Why would the masses buy a $400 console when they could just get a $50 Roku that does what they want?

But it wasn't, really. If anything, they decided to reduce their audience to one single demographic.

"Hey bros! We got Kinect and sports, we got TV and sports, we got cars, we got this cool time bendy game. Did we mention we got sports? HALO BITCHEZ!! Oh, we're done. PSYCH! CALL OF DOOOTY, SON!"

Yeah you're right. Either way, with this out of the way E3 is finally the next big event and that's really all I care about.
