Talk about upsetting. Xbox 360 did little to impress at the E3 press conference. Apparently the big deal was that Scene It? was going to be on Xbox 360. Really? That’s what the biggest deal this year is?
I was expecting some sort of portable device (the X Boy if you will) or some kind of new innovation for the 360 (like systems that work). But instead we get to see GTA IV that we’ve already seen.
There was the Resident Evil 5 teaser which is cool, and also the announcement of Marathon coming to XBLA. Plus a new look at Halo 3, but nothing truly unexpected or impressive.
Where was their “Halo 2 release date” moment? What happened to the “EA Sports on Xbox Live” moment?
Thankfully 360’s fall lineup speaks for itself.
As far as Scene It? goes…the game will come with 4 buzzers that can be used for playing the game instead of controllers. Hopefully these can be utilized for other things in the future as well, like for something people give a crap about.
