Today at 1:30 PM (EST) Microsoft gave there E3 and boy did they bring out the big guns.

Fisrt off, in a first Microsoft teamed up with Spike TV inwhich they showed the presentation !!! LIVE !!! If you missed it most of it can be seen at game trailers

Here is just a short list of things that were reveiled:

0 More details on Call of Duty: Black ops

0 More details on Halo: Reach

0 More details on Gears of war 3

0 More details on Rock Band 3

0 ESPN has a deal to broadcast sporting events on the X-Box

0 Project Natal is now called Kinect

0 An BUTT LOAD ASS TON of games were reveiled for Kinect

0 The new X-Box 360 slim was reveiled

W Shocked W

This (in my opinon) is the grandest E3 I have seen from Microsoft.

I personally am very excited about Kinect, but will be very hesitant when it comes out (unless I can get in some demo time). It is listed at $149 by gamestop.

Any other thoughts?

I only have one thought, and I hate to share it... but I will anyway. The new X-box slim, come on, it's just a PS3. Same color, same button types, same shiny, built in wi-fi. Don't get me wrong, it seems like it needed to happen, and it was along time coming, but when I heard the list the first thing that came to mind was the striking similarity to the PS3 when it came out.

If you have not seen it in detail check out this Destructoid article

You are not alone there CapAm. I was on the phone with Xyeer0 and was watching the presentation with revtev and postal dude and we all thought the same thing. It just seems like it's the X-Box we all deserved two years ago. All I care about is that I will be able to get the "old" X-Box's super cheap at pawn shops as people try to get the money for the new one Laughing

I was blown away by Halo: Reach and Gears 3. I dig the design and features of the new 360.

Don't get me wrong, I think it looks great, but that system is going to die quickly. I don't mean the company will go under, I mean they will have even more overheating problems now. They took a fan out, and packed all this stuff that made it overheat before into a smaller package. Granted, I said the PS3 slim would overheat too, and I haven't heard of any of them doing it yet.

If I'm not mistaken, the GPU & CPU are all packed together on the same chip which is cooled by a single fan.

I'm still officially calling it that this thing will die about as often as the older models. If in a year and a half they don't have any issues, I may pick one up.

i call it the alien-wii!!!

no offense to those who like it but ive never seen mating in the console world until now...




i just dont see how they can keep it cool when the old one is bigger and still keeps me warm in neg10 degree.
besides not only does it kinda look like a wii, kinect is uber lame and so much more wii like...since when does microsoft want to be nintendo?
