Just M$ games this year...don't think there is anything else we will be interested in.
Besides, I have never been to one :tongue:
I am hoping E3 dies for Good in oder for something much better to come..:D

I wonder what SONY is up to tho :-k

Dunno about the MS one, but not impressed with the new Nintendo add-on. A dongle that improves Wii remote performance? Does it not work already without this? What a crock. More little bits of plastic from Nintendo, no doubt at a premium. Hey you don't need it, but you'll be a second-class gamer if you don't get it...

And I'm a fan!

Maybe the games we might be looking forward to are GoW2, Resistance 2, Fallout 3 and Resident Evil 5 ofcourse :)

But, PC games :confused:
(If you look at the big E3 list for 2008)

I thought MS announced some good stuff.

Overhauled dash could be good, Avatars seem a bit gimmicky though.

FF XIII is a big game for MS and it always helps taking an exclusive away from the competitor.

Netflix partnership helps to make the 360 more of a media center(hope we get netflix in the UK).

Fallout 3 exclusive content.

An exclusive sequal to Portal to be released on XBLA. I'm excited about this, portal was awesome.

Here's even more announcments (http://http://majornelson.com/archive/2008/07/14/some-of-the-features-in-the-new-xbox-experience-8-person-chat-vga-plus-more.aspx)

8 Person chat, dashboard in the guide, ability to play games from the hard drive.

Good stuff!

Meeh! :tongue: GTA was a major disappointment for alot of gamers.
Unless they add GTA things that were supposed to be there in the first place.

And what's with RES 5 racial claims :confused:

Yeah i read about the racial thing. People going crazy that you kill black zombies. I didn't see anybody complain about the spanish zombies in Resi 4.

I think it's just a big fuss about nothing.

well the xbox version you will need to swap dvds

while the ps3 will be 1 blu-ray

also, the xbox version will only be available in the U.S. (xbox failed in japan)

while the ps3 version will be in U.S. and Japan

seems the ps3 will still have the japan market FF exclusive to themselves

Of course making these games costs so much, that i would even expect it to appear in the Wii!!

Mirror's Edge looks pretty neat.

I'm looking forward to seeing more about the Wii shooter The Conduit. Also want to see the MotionPlus thingy they've got. they never make a peripheral unless they have a specific purpose for it in mind, and I want to see how they intend to use it.

Or the fact that MS has more than enough money to buy title.

I think MS allowing people to install games on the hard drive could be their solution to disc swapping. MS are allowing you now to install whole games to HDD so the disc wouldn't spin at all.

Wow, what an awful conference for MS. We'll have to see what Nintendo will bring tomorrow.

Yep, announcing a great new dashboard and the fact that they now have one of SONYs long term exclusives is a really awful conference.

Microsoft leading the way, once again.

So we might have to swap a disk. So?

It will be available worldwide. Mark my words.

It costs so much because the ps3 is so costly to develop for. :lolflag:

Nintendo's usual thing of late. They could at least think of new sales numbers to blabber on about. I think we all know about Ninendogs and Brain Age being roaring successes at this point.

Terrible sony conference. Nothing new, a lot of emphasis on psp / ps2 ( :confused: ), talking about old games (this "new" platinum range), resistance 2 (known about for ages).

Mag was the only thing worth mentioning.

- New Halo game
- More sequels
- Xbox Portable?
- Showing some 3rd-party Xboxes (e.g made by Toshiba)

Sony's lack of anything interesting happening is a real downer. I think we should just consider Home vapor ware at this point. At least we have God of War 3? Oh wait its probably be exactly like the other two but a bit longer then Heavenly Sword.

I believe the PS2 stuff is emphasized since it is still their best selling platform.

And yeah, sounds like M$ pwnd sonyntendo :lolflag:
I don't care about the XboX tho :tongue:
BUT...If SONY doesn't frickin reduce the price of that thing...
I will DEFINITELY buy the next XboX instead

Who's with me?

COM'ON!! no RROD *whispers*I promise :biggrin:

i got not too long ago a ps2

am what you call a late gamer or "cheap" gamer, i get all my stuff when they are dirt cheap

i purchase all my games after the become "greatest hits" at $10 bucks a piece

heck i still play many psx and zsnes (i mean ps1 and snes :))

i really don't care much for all this "0weS0M3 GrAFyKs" non sense

if i get a new console it might be a wii and then a ps3 when ps4 is out

unless the ps4 is a full feature PC/console with linux already pre-installed (who knows, in 5 or 6 years that might be a reality) :popcorn:
