    i feel their undercutting microsoft they didnt mention the new designed console at all and the fact that is was being shipped to stores that day and you could get it within the week, and the kinectic waveing our hand to move around menus and the voice recognition for movies and stuff is going to be cool, and i think 99.99 or maybe 150.00 would be a good selling price because thats all you would need no extra controllers or nun chucks. For PS3 to have 4 people playing a game you would need 8! controllers (wand and chuck each) and for some games they showed 2 wands being used for a game just saying at 49.99 for wand and i think 29 or 39 for the chuck its going to be price for multiple people to play at the same time.

    I don't think Microsoft should have launched Kinect this way. I think it's greatest application comes as an input tool for an operating system/UI. (I'm mostly a PC gamer, so my tack on it is nothing short of predictable I suppose, but...) I really think that this device serves more value to, say, people with disabilities using it for input, or just anyone using it as an input device for all sorts of stuff. I think they're missing the mark a bit by not letting software (particularly the software layers required to run it) gestate a bit and really get polished. As an input device I clearly see nothing wrong with using it for games, but the best application for this thing is clearly not gaming. I think it's fine if it gets used that way, but it looks so misplaced here presented this way, as opposed to being released as a general purpose input device on a wider variety of platforms. I think as it gets further refined, you'll very possibly see this used for physical rehabilitation use. The games seemed good I guess. The dance and fitness programs will appeal to some I'm sure, and I'm sure if you live in a home where you're kids aren't allowed to touch the furniture, having a virtual pet that behaves like that will seem like a good substitute, but I really think this thing should have been done way differently. Like I said, it's fine to use any input device to control games, but it's got much greater application elsewhere.

    Seeing Gabe at Sony's conference was a big surprise. I guess their willingness to open the platform up a bit was appealing enough to get him on board. Good for them, and for me, now I won't hear PS3 gamers gripe about the lack of content attached to the orange box games, nor that new valve games are unavailable on their platform of choice. (No dis, I'm glad for you, but I am tired of the griping too)

    Morgans a downer? Why because Nintendo constantly bores the crowd. I'm sure the G4 suits say be nice so we can get more big name developers to do interviews but if telling the truth and actually saying what many, many, MANY people are thinking is being a downer well......Keep being a downer Morgan. I would have been much more harsh on MS, Sony, and Nintendo.

    P.S. I'm glad Gabe Newell of Valve finally realized what a foolish move it is to shun nearly one half of the gaming market...Gabe...the more platforms your games are on the more money your company will make...its just good business....and yes it would have been amazing to see all his quotes behind him in a collage of some sort....but I can't wait for portal 2!

    I'm with Morgan for the most part actually. Nintendo is just raping your wallet with your nostalgia with some of their best franchises...which is alright if they're trying something new like Kirby epic yarn (strange title btw). As far as all the conferences in general...I was hard pressed to find any original title. Most announcements were either about a casual shovelware game or about another sequal in a franchise or next years sports game...I'm beginning to sound jaded I know. I just do feel like paying for a similar experience every single year with a different title...aka halo, gears, killzone, call of duty, etc. I will say however that castlevania and metal gear rising...although series continuations look to change the way the game is played hence delivering a new experience...and imo one worth paying for. Honestly this year's e3 had very few OMG moments for me...and specifically as far as Zelda goes. Wind waker was new and exciting and I loved the art direction and then twilight princess was a dip back in the traditional direction, but this new Zelda doesn't look different enough to me to warrant 50 dollars...imo it looks like a bright twilight princess with more motion controls...the other frustrating this is when gamers get used to a game being played a certain way and stripping it of buttons in favor of the new flailing your arms gameplay fad...which can be fun....but please Nintendo, Microsoft, Sony...give people the option to use standard button layouts...this especially goes to Nintendo who gives 4-5 different controller options on Mario kart, but forces you to used motion on Zelda...wtf...back to the point...I love games...although it might not sound like it after my rant...I just want a little innovation in the actual games themselves and not have to buy expensive peripherals every time a company sees a market for it...I understand that video games are a business, but at some point I just want to see a good game be the current trend and no game at any of the big3 press conferences is truly a system selling game. Thanks again for the roundup.
