MS 'f***ed up' with E3 conference - Eden producer

Postby ledickolas » 18 Jun 2010, 11:04

This is the game I was most interested in on Kinect yet all that I've seen is a concept trailer so far.

If Microsoft weren't expecting such a negative reaction to their 'Wii too' conference then they really need to refocus as they're losing touch in the pursuit for the bottom line.

Kinect has excellent potential but those 'games' MS were touting at E3 were just an embarrassment. I don't expect the same levels of innovation from MS that I do from Nintendo but they really need to stop with the staight rip offs. I don't think they know what they have with Kinect, and if they don't neither will any consumer, core or casual.

Damn right they should have. Although I'm sure Ubisoft would have wanted to keep that little gem for their own keynote.

you gotta think MS are kicking themselves right now - well that and somebody just got their ass fired!

when Shigsy says that you've got the game of the tournament (if he actually did), and you don't put it in your main conference line-up, then heads are gonna roll

Agree absolutely.

Kinect has now got off to a really really bad start. It wouldn't surprise me if Microsoft calls some kind of mini xbox conference to show off Natals other abilities, as it was an instantly forgetable show which just screamed 'Me too, but not quite as effectively'.

To be fair, it was always going to be difficult for MS or Sony to beat Nintendo this year after such a fantastic show.

As soon as I saw the video from the Ubi conference I said MS should have shown this Game at their Event, it was one of the standout titles that I saw from E3. This is exactly the kind of Game that MS need to be showing to let their existing Fanbase know what Kinect can do and why it would appeal to them.

I agree, i watched the trailer yesterday, looks bloody brilliant.

I don't understand why MS would think showing loads of casual titles would be a good idea. Nintendo seems to have learnt their lesson, Casual gamers Don't pay attention to E3!

If we'd seen more of milo, fable 3's kinect support, and project eden at the MS conference i think it would of went down a hell of a lot better.

well it should settle the debate about whether ms made a mistake the other night from the more defensive ms fans.

t'was a f*ck up. no question. wii music like in it's cringe factor. yeah,it was that bad.

this guy said it nice and straight,i respect anyone who cuts through the sh!t and just calls it.

90% of gamers,regardless of format preference,would have to agree with him.

wii music worked man. :D

i cringed just as much,i'll tell ya.

i get where you're coming from but it was such a mess up and so unexpected from ms that the wii music debacle is the closest thing i've got to compare this to.

maybe i'm being a tad harsh.

loved what i saw of halo4 and gears 3. they are the exceptions for me.

MS are not going to win over anyone with a game that is also available on the ps3 move combo. The message they need is that kinect is better than move, not the same. It would have been stupid to show this as a demo of kinect.
