Microsoft Recap

Overall, the keynote was lackluster, but Microsoft did announce a couple of bombs. There's a new Xbox 360 that features built in Wi-Fi and it's out THIS WEEK. How Microsoft kept that under wraps is extremely impressive.

The new Metal Gear Solid: Rising also looks really rad. We may finally get a good sword based combat game thanks to Hideo and his team.

So what did you think of Microsoft's press conference? Did they drop the ball? Did they focus way too much on Kinect? Are you going to get a Kinect or the new Xbox 360?

All in all, this was obviously intended to be a games-heavy show. Almost no mention of hardware news, TV functionality, sales, or anything else beyond the games, which is a bit refreshing after last year's conference. No mention of any Xbox 360 games, either, and very little mention of anything coming to PC. Also barely any mention of Kinect. They definitely have some good stuff coming down the pipe, but it would've been nice to see more of the freshly-announced games running in realtime rather than dropping CGI trailers, but that's E3 for you.
