Forums - Microsoft Discussion - Major Nelson blog of todays MS conference

So basically, for XBOX users without Kinect, this conference was useless apart from the Gears news, which was already hinted at beforehand.

 

Dissapointing is an understatement.

This happens every time with Microsoft. E3 2009 was the last time one of their conferences/announcements/whatever didn't end in letdown. Fable III DLC is cool though.

I don't think this event is over yet, but so far disappointing to say the least..


that was in fact it, besides you know getting details on the games listed. 



 

wtf Fable pc in May.

It was originally planned for a release alongside the 360 version. How many guys have they got working on this? 2?

 

Perhaps they figured it best to release some time after Dragon Age.



So what exactly IS MS first party working on.  I am unaware of really any current games coming from the first party, other than Forza 4.  Seriously MS is losing some steam in terms of launching big exclusive games.  Even the big awesome ones like Gears of War 3 are from 3rd party developers.  Besides Halo and Forza MS really has zero big first party franchises.

Well.. i'm really glad, they didn't dissapointed me in the way i say it would be :D So..let`s sum it up :)

- Big annoucment - you will be amazed / mind blowing.. = dissapointed / what you already know / we need more money from you..

- mind blowing kinect titles = what are core gamers ? Wii showed us a good way, how to do our bussines in the next future

 - New tv-programs, new stream media, new stuffs = restricted to U.S. only

Mistakes:

1. A year with the sight for KINECT (and mainly for it)

 The majority of gamers are "core", not causal, and surprise - kinect is doing really well only on U.S. - Core are doing your bussiness

2. A Deal of Month - Bizzare Creations

 This would be a perfect studio for your next IPs.. 

3. Deal to own BioWare (or to have Mass and Bio as exclusive)

   Could you imagine Bioshock and Mass Effect still only on XBOX360 ?

4. Time exclusivities

  Many of players will wait, till it would show on their platform.. it really doesn't keep the platform exclusive for any reasons..

5. Paying for XBL

 Hm.. it`s a great service, but why not to make it something like PS3 have... free for online, but pay for disscounts and specialities .. and NO, PSN isn't going to be paid by gamers to play online

 

I'm really sorry for this post, but i was a bit dissapointed also.. so don't please kill me with answers :D

Well Microsoft considers Call of Duty more so as an xbox franchise and they are totally wrong in doing so. But honestly they need to develop some new ip's for the brand. Spending money on timed exclusives and getting the Homefront or COD dlc one month before is just not enough in the long term. Still kudos to them for getting the hardcore gamer this gen and hooking up kids with achievement addiction.

Yeah, that`s what a was misinterpreting... really sorry for that.. but the other words in brackets could be possibly, or not ? :) Well.. assuming that if it was under EA wings also, it was only a time to go multiplatform..
