I kind of figured that's how it would be this year.
Microsoft love to have a spectacle every year at E3.
Except last year! :P
...and the year before. Lol.
What are you talking about? The 2009 Press Conference was great.
Not really (for me at least). There we some good announcements like MGS: Rising but Kinect (or Project Natal at the time) was boring me out of that room. Microsofts last few E3s have been dud for me. Nintendo / Sony did very well last year though IMO. Hopefully MSFT will bring something to the table this year that isn't Kinect or Halo HD related.
So the last half hour trumps the first hour? MGS Rising, Alan Wake, Splinter Cell: Conviction, ODST, and Forza 3 were all shown for the first time. Combined with Reach being announced made it one awesome conference.
You had no problem with the Move segment in Sony's conference then?
