XBOX reveal. May 21st. 5pm (GMT).

#1  Postby Animavore » May 21, 2013 1:49 pm

Just over two hours to go.

Now I've already stated XBOX will have to do something incerdibly amazing for me to even consider slightly moving over to them. I love my PS exclusives too much. I can live with the XBOX having slightly better graphics or marginally more impressive extra-media features but I'll still be watching at 5 to check out the competition and maybe see reveals of a couple of games which will be on the PS4 also.

Will it come with a RRoD? My old XBox had a RRoD and was hoping for some consistency.

Ah this is pure bollox! Not a single game shown yet. A lot of Kinnect shite. Wave your hands and pull out screens while asking your XBOX to "Show Favourites". Big deal.

Nothing to do with fanboi-ism. I watched for games. Except for the premiere of the new Call of Duty at the end, I got none. Just a load of waffle about how it would be an all-in-one hub to work with all your other Microsoft crap (phone, laptop, tablets etc...)

Think I'll buy a nice book instead. Some ice-cream, maybe.

Maybe they'll show some games at E3.

COD looked graphically underwhelming, but maybe we can hope for a decent story now that they hired the guy from traffic. If we're lucky the even made some sensible gameplay improvements so it actually feels fresh again...maybe.

Either way, I'm reserving judgement until we actually see some new games and franchises. So far it's just meh.

I agree with you....They're waffling about a Halo TV show at the moment. Who cares? Show me a fecking game!

Did they mention if it would be strictly online game distribution and online DRM? The rumors running around were that Microsoft was going to kill off the used game/rental market.

They didn't mention it at all.

But you can shout out, "XBOX on!" and it comes on. So that's, eh... cool.
