As a gamer, I think Microsoft's conference made the most impact.
What I loved was the update to the dashboard interface. Very Apple-esque. Avatars and
the scheduled competitive games are a great idea. That's something I foresee my wife and
I spending hours upon hours participating in.
Oh. NETFLIX! Finally! With all the survey's from Netflix asking users if they would use a
service that streamed movies to a 360, it has finally been made official. Thank you.
Now I can say good riddance to BallBusters online service and their almost monthly
price increase. Yuck...
*shakes head* Nintendo...nintendo. Do they really care anymore? I don't think so. Penny
Arcade summarized the whole conference with three panels
I'd say they don't give an eff. When Reggie was actually confronted by a game
journalist, he was asked why Nintendo didn't announce any major games. He retorted, "We
announced Animal Crossing for the Wii!"
Wow! I somehow don't care! Reggie thinks I should. And, don't get me started on the Wii
Nintendo really has left the core gamers and are actually focusing on the people who don't
even know what E3 is. Great job. Once the novelty wears off, I see the Wii tanking fast.
Sony. It was decent. Wait. I take that back. Nothing came from their conference either.
Too many promises that have been already broken in the past. Why should I believe them
MAG? Massive Action Game? This is coming from a company that has delayed Home 723
times. MAG is something we'll see touted at future E3s. I just felt like we were listening to
Sony's 2007 E3 conference again.
Oh, well. Back to some Puzzle Quest while my wife watches Project Runway.
