manwithanopinion you are correct. Microsoft is working hard to steal the exclusive titles away from sony. We seen it with GTA, Resident Evil and now with final fantasy. What's next resistance?

The new Interface to xbox live is very impressive even if it is borrowing from the Nintendo Wii. And the ability to watch netflix movies for free with your subscription to Xbox Live is awsome.

I would have like to see more exclusive games though.

They also needed to show what games are on the horizon.
If they would have filled in those gaps they may have gotten Grade:A

They deserve a B-

Sorry, ran out of character so here is my second post. I also wanted to say that the Movie Magic, Uno, and Scene It stuff is trying to get families on XBL. They are trying to shoot for a demographic of families and kiddies, not true gamers like us. It is a good SALES move, but not to good of a move for the gamers. I also wanted to say that the Final Fantasy franchise coming over to Microsoft is a kick in the gut to Sony. This is awesome. Plus, rumor has it MGS4 is coming over. This means Sony is really going to need more that what they showed at this year's E3.

I have a couple things to say. 1. FF XIII, nuff said. 2. Fallout 3, Gears 2, Fable 2, and all the other games look amazing and really fun. 3. I can't wait to watch Netflix on my 360. 4. The new features, like the Party Up and XLA features, look really cool and were a long time coming. 5. Avatars? I thought the 362 was for hardcore gamers. Avatars are for the Wii. This was my only disappointment, but hopefully when it comes out it will be better. So far, Microsoft gets the prize for Best of Show at E3.

this is awsome the avatars are gonna be sick plus the new dashbord and all the new games this year cant get any better !!!

Posted by bbricketts - Tuesday, July 15, 2008 3:26 PM

this is great. to bad everytim i trie and watch it it goes back to the begginning.

Posted by King_Chobocobo - Tuesday, July 15, 2008 3:26 PM

I remember after last years E3 that I said Final Fantasy 13 wont be exclusive because more people will have Xbox 360s and Microsoft has money. Everyone was like Final Fantasy will stay exclusive and now look at this. Times are a changin big time. Netflix and Universal partening with Xbox was awesome. After the Sony Conference Im not impressed with the PS3 at all. All its good for to me now is Blu Ray and MAG Lol.

Posted by Zombiemafia - Tuesday, July 15, 2008 3:22 PM

i cant believe that Let There Be Rock will be on Rock Band 2!

thats INSANE!

Posted by sitkemkev - Tuesday, July 15, 2008 2:26 PM

Microsoft has done a lot of copying from the other companies. It may not be motion sensitivity, but their new avatars resemble much from what Playstation and Nintendo have done. Playstation announced Home a while back. Home is supposed to give PSN a social network. Home gives you your own personal space in which you may freely customize with practically everything thats in an apartment. Microsoft created a new interface for XBox Live. This interface is designed to give Live users the ability to connect to one another and do stuff together, like watch movies. What I think, is that Microsoft's new interface is trying to rip Home into their Live and steal Nintendo's Miis. in other words this is Mii Home. LIPS is ripping from Singstar except they have a microphone that glows. Otherwise I guess Microsoft got a good deal with Netflix, unlike PS that got movie companies, which is still good, as long as they keep up with the time.

They had the best 1st, if ur not 1st ur last , i lov everything. I think they made all of us kiss our xboxs.

thats a shame might as well say microsoft won E3..........(eats crow)

Posted by Shonomercy - Tuesday, July 15, 2008 10:42 AM

I wonder what kind of prizes you will win from the game show games. Maybe microsoft points?

Posted by sfubear - Tuesday, July 15, 2008 10:17 AM

yo this year xbox is going to be cleaning house. Sony is loosing all it's worth getting exclusives. All these PS3 fanboys are reduced to actually acting like killzone 2 is going to rock, while us 360 owners get to sit back and enjoy the perks from the dominance and aggressive attitude of Mircosoft. All the new features are whatever though. The guy is a little over confident and a lot of the ideas aren't that original but they have been a big success for all the other companies and when Microsoft incorporates them their fan base will only increase. It is a good time to own a 360

WHAT THE HELL THIS DOENT WORK

Posted by Nhawk454 - Tuesday, July 15, 2008 9:29 AM

I have to say that i've never been more excited to be a Xbox 360 owner. Not just for gaming but for all the media options. I belive they said that you could join chat rooms now. Awesome! It should have been that way from the begining. But microsoft is tranforming my game console into a total etertainment package. This is more user friendly and more economical than any PC package that I have ever seen. I cant wait to see how the new dashboard pans out but, even without all that, these new title releases are Spectacular. The only complaint I have about them is that the are all coming out around the same time. I want to play them all. Fallout 3 (cant wait!), Gears 2(Cant wait!) Fable 2 (cant wait!) I mean. for all you complainers, was you even watching the same conference? Even the integration of Netflix. Come on whats not to like here. Avitars.. That's just an added bonus. JEEZE! I mean come on join me! Vive la Xbox...

I cant believe exclusive content for fallout 3 on xbox 360! WHY? what is the point!? the only reason i could see them doin this is if M$ payed them off

Posted by deathangelsin - Tuesday, July 15, 2008 6:09 AM

ill admit FF going to the x box pisses me off but its unavoidable cuz square was eventually going to do it anyway they are going to go were they think the money is so not much of a suprise seeing as how they got 11 however at the same time it doesnt bother me as long as its no exclusively on the xbox or being released first on the xbox if so this isnt just a punch in the face of jus sony but sony square fans who bought the ps3 with the idea of getting FF13 then ending up having to wait longer or buy a 360 but other than that i dont care i only want the 360 still for halo and gears im still going to stick to my ps3 for my RE5 FF13 stuff like that as long as they aint exclusive theres no need to jumpship

Want to know to who has bad Coverage


you geussed it EA

Posted by maortiz10 - Monday, July 14, 2008 10:47 PM

Awesome, nice announcements from Microsoft, Gears of wars 2 was awesome, Fallout was great, I never thought it would look and play that good. I cant wait to play RE5, I just would like it was released a lot sooner, but the good thing is, that we will have a lot of good games , before that comes out. And I really loved the new look, of the Dashboard, It feels like your getting a new console, when are actually , just downloading the upgrade. That is a big thumbs up, for Microsoft. That makes you feel greatfull for having a xbox360. And the avatar is cool, imagen, all the time friends are going to spend on making there unique avatar, and seeing them on your buddy list , is going to be coooolll. I cant see , how can some people cant appreciate this effort , microsoft is doing, to please everybody, make you feel good for having a xbox. Isn't that what we want??

Posted by gamersupreme#1 - Monday, July 14, 2008 9:42 PM

I'm not liking the new interface for the dashboard. Hopefully they'll have some sort of setting to use the old system.

Posted by audallas84 - Monday, July 14, 2008 8:26 PM

Avatars are kind of a necessary evil here with the whole party system idea.

@Corpus26 Don't sit there and tell me that Microsoft copied Sony and the Wii, they both copied MS by bringing their consoles online. Ms did that first. MS has so much money because they made a good product that sells. Don't curse MS because Sony doesn't have enough good games and the Wii doesn't offer games for actual gamers.

Posted by jbb - Monday, July 14, 2008 8:26 PM

Microsoft plz i liked the old interface and the avatars are ok i guess but i expected more. Gears of war2,fable2,and live is the only reason i would ever buy an xbox 360

Posted by corpus26 - Monday, July 14, 2008 7:51 PM

Dam Microsoft copyed so much S^IT from Nintendo and PS3. Like the MII's in the Wii. And the PS2, EyeToy. And they have so much S^IT just because Microsoft is so GodDam RICH. Like there taking all the best Sony titles for the F^^^ing 360. Because they have the money to buy it. LIKE FINAL FANTASY XII. S^IT I'M PISSED!!!!!!!!!!

After saying FF13 was going multiplatform, if you listened very closely, you could hear the collective WTF??!!!! from Final Fantasy fanboys around the world

Posted by yoshiarecool - Monday, July 14, 2008 7:42 PM

Activision got its ass handed to it by Harmonix. While the dude was waiting up there for applause, Harmonix was revealing AC/DC (Finally), Bob Dylan, Guns and Roses music, and complete forward compatibility.
Harmonix, you have won my 180$s

Posted by Chosenbarly - Monday, July 14, 2008 7:07 PM

Yeah! Microsoft on deck Bill Gates stand up. I bet SONY does not even have a come back,pretty much Microsoft put SONY on hush mouth.Good job keep up the good work Microsoft.

Posted by demonlord2007 - Monday, July 14, 2008 5:16 PM

This is great news to hear from Microsoft. I think FF13 going to the 360 is a major loss to Sony. All they have now is MGS4,War Hawk,and coupon of other major first party titles now. They even lost Ace Combat as well. I will get Fallout 3 and Fable 2 and even Halo wars if I have enough money of it. I hope The PS3 the best of luck trying to defend against the 360 now. I am not fanboy of Microsoft either. This is based of what I read about the consoles online at different game sites. You all have a great day today.

Posted by AnontheEpic - Monday, July 14, 2008 4:23 PM

well, i can not wait till the new xbawks experience comes out, also Gears of War 2 and fallout 3 can not wait. RE5 why so long i need you, But the one that is super cool is FF13. Omg! what a punch to Sony, there system has failed and is now an expensive blue-ray player.....O yea i know that MGS4 is on it way too xbawks~ xbawk you have out done yourself yet another year~!
