    @Monstar95 and everyother fanboy commenting on the Microsoft page. It seems like you guys are just trying to find anything to say about the 360 when we all know it isn't true. First off, neither Sony or Nintendo invented wifi, so I really don't understand how a Xbox is ripping them off?? Especially when Microsoft offers a stronger faster connection in wifi then any other console. I also love how you guys have the audacity to compare the Kinect to the Wii, when it is painfully obvious that they are nothing alike. IF you watched the Nintendo conference, you will be reminded that the will offer motion controls equipped with a controller. Also it's only most affective during gameplay. Kinect is voice activated. Controls not only games, but your actual Xbox and apps in it. It also gives a complete full bodied motion control with no controller!! So how are they even similar, because you can use motion controls?? Unlike the Move, which is a rip off design, ripoff concept, and it does nothing more but play video games, which Nintendo already beat to the punch. So just because the new 360 is sleek and black its stealing the idea from Sony?? So any black sleek system is obviously stealing from sony?? Give me a break!! Let's face it Microsoft had an awesome presentation!! ESPN with full voice activated access, Halo 3, Gears 3, and a brand new MGS game only for Xbox. The Kinect, which I was against at first until I saw what all it can do!! Video chat, control over your movies and music and other apps, and the games didn't look all that bad!! You guys are just fishing for flaws, because you're hoping the Sony Conference doesn't suck!!

    ok... i liked espn on my xbox live... i liked Dancing title from harmonix... i heven thought that fitness game from ubisoft was kinda cool... thats all good... but for me feels like that should be the side dishes for main course. Whats the main course??? VIDEOGAMES!!! and with videogames i mean hardcore videogames!!!

    i want HC videogames that have some sort of natal -sorry kinect - integration!! i dont want them to be control free... but maybe some voice commands, some head tiltig to see around corners i dont know... be creative... not a huge letdown... but they came very short in comparisson to last years conference...

    So all this cool stuff is interesting but will still be earth shattering when the RED RING OF DEATH comes for you! Every time I turn it on I worry

    Kinekt looks worse than I thought it would, but the new 360 looks sweet.

    Here are my thoughts

    The new xbox is great, i think its the one everyone has been wanting, i think it should have had a blu ray

    the kinect looks great... i just dont think we have seen its full potential.

    Dance central in my opinion looks amazing and could revolutionize the music game genre. this game has multiple applications, like teaching people how to dance, to party games with friends. i think that kinect will make DDR look obsolete, and that this will be one of greatest music games of all time

    This is a fail to me . I am a Sony fanboy and i was worried about Microsoft's Kinect. Then is saw this and it looks like a Wii rip off. I though they were going to do something cool and different with it not steal Nintendo's ideas. Also the knew Xbox feels like a PS3 slim rip off. I mean look at it wifi, 250gb, and the sleek black look. I know they needed to add the wifi but everything else come on.

    Anyway the fact they are the same price now won't worry me because Sony feels like they have more to off at that price. No disrespect to Xbox fanboys this is just my opinion.

    Only seen this and Ubisoft so far, but I cheered a couple of times and DID like this presentation. I enjoyed the Kinect segment forward the most..as has been said we knew about most of the first couple games they showed although it was neat to see their trailers. The surprise Crytek one looked like it could be cool, but the trailer was kinda gross. Fable's the one I'm looking forward too. New console looks neat, but not buying it 'til the old one expires...although the hard drive space will be good.

    But the Kinect stuff? Looks really awesome. I understand the complaints about 'no new ideas' but it's like this time they're finally being done right--better graphics, real interactivity that isn't just from a single point or two on a wiimote. It's an evolution..you go from the first Super Mario, to Crash, to the newest Ratchet...you can't say there are no new ideas along the way. That's what I'm seeing with these...new levels of play with similar underlying ideas.

    The only reason it's underwhelming is because of the level of expectation. I want immersive adventure games or RPG's using Kinect. Milo was amazing and none of these had the same level of WOW as that demo did. I'm sure we'll get them though..take something like Heavy Rain and make all the semi-QT events interactive with Kinect? How about Monkey Island or any point and click with Kinect control? Can you imagine actually jumping and smacking in PB Winterbottom? I'm excited!

    This is so dumb, I hate exclusive dlc. I don't understand why the xbox has to do this. Exclusive games is one thing, but honestly making dlc exclusive isn't going to make me want an xbox, retards.

    lol. this press conference was so bad that they had to give everyone a 360 just to make it up to the people for having to sit through that.

    wow, a new halo game, a new gears game, a suped-up eyetoy. where does ms come up with all these original ideas!?

    i've heard more emotion and inflection during a stephen hawking lecture. kill the teleprompter and speak plainly.

    the espn stuff is kinda cool, too bad i'm not a sports guy.

    why does microsoft always insist on showing multiplatform games on the floor it just wastes their time when they could be showing games that only run on their system plus it also advertises the game for sony without sony having to do anything

    Great, now I can finally justify buying a new xbox and not worry about it RRoDing a few months later! Well hopefully, i'd assume the redesign was meant to address the issues that caused RRoD, but the "whisper quiet" part still makes me wonder.

    Must say though, the best part of their presentation was the new redesign of something they've had for years, kind of expected more.
