Live Microsoft E3 Xbox conference Finished

The Microsoft Xbox E3 2011 press conference is over. But you can still read all about it!

Eurogamer was reporting in real-time from the Los Angeles event. There was news about a Modern Warfare 3 exclusivity deal, not to mention a Tomb Raider release date and plans to bring telly to Xbox Live.

Seems like even Tom Clancy and Crytek are into Kinect these days. Meanwhile, there are new Kinect Sports and Dance Central titles on the way.

Then there was that Forza date, and of course the Halo 4 reveal... But that's enough summarising. Read on for the full banana.

    FS MS need to be careful.

    The idiots are done with the gimmick, and if they want a refresh they'll just get the Wiimotes out again. The you go alienating the hardcore.

    Nice. You know, Nintedo are genius. Milk idiots for 4-5 years, get a huge money pile the go back to what you actually want to be doing, making decent games.
  • Devox 3 years ago

    Looks to me like the last 360 E3. Nothing new here guys, move along.
  • RobotRocker 3 years ago

    Conference summed up in one sentence:

    Shit you nerds hate but will sell in millions to the public at large.

    I thank you.
  • Tyrhinis 3 years ago

    I'm a huge Halo fan and I have a Kinect... and I thought this conference was terrible. Glad they announced Halo Anniversary, but I don't want Halo 4, especially not without Bungie! Make something new!

    Most of the Kinect stuff was terrible, they keep talking about TV and movies but still haven't added Kinect control to video playback or DVDs, no iPlayer / 4od / iTV player....

    Sony looking better all the time.
  • drumbaby 3 years ago

    Seems pretty anaemic judging by the summary unless you're a Kinect fanatic...in which case you probably wouldn't even know that E3 exists.
  • Badassbab 3 years ago

    So to sum up-

    Halo Remake
    Halo 4 Next year
    Gears of War 3
    Forza 4
    A few Kinect exclusives

    Great.....can Sony and Nintendo beat this? Unless it's a monumental cock up on their behalf I think they will quite easily. We Nintendo anyway. Unless Sony has someyhing really surprising up their sleeve?
  • Douche 3 years ago

    Is this page broke for everyone?
  • TAPNGO 3 years ago

    my xbox will be lonely this year, utter fail ):
  • Darren 3 years ago

    What a shit conference... way too emphasis on Kinect and has-been sequels for my liking. What happened to Microsoft, isn't wasn't that long ago that I looked forward to their E3 conferences with excitement... :(
  • IronGiant 3 years ago

    Well that was toss, waste of bandwidth waiting for something decent. MS execs seem to believe all they need to do is announce a new Halo game and gamers will be satisfied. Arse.

    I think I'm gonna throw up
  • alcides 3 years ago

    Well, there's always third party I guess... Which I'll be playing on my PS3.
  • gamecubeisbest 3 years ago

    Embarassing

  • DaDon123456 3 years ago

    Was kinda boring TBH
  • Der_tolle_Emil 3 years ago

    Absolutely horrible. Sequel after sequel and then nothing but Kinect nonsense. I bet Kudo Tsunoda was wearing glasses to hide is blood-shot eyes from crying through the entire conference.



    Bring on Nintendo's conference!
  • gerald 3 years ago

    playing it save ... reeeeally save
  • Scottie 3 years ago

    More Kinect crap! Just what we wanted to hear.
  • MinerWilly 3 years ago

    Found the whole thing really underwhelming , like others have said it was all about Kinect and being able to use voice controls , nothing groundbreaking about that . Endwar did that really well 3 years ago and I didnt need to shell out 80 quid .
  • Scottie 3 years ago

    More Kinect crap as usual!
  • GiarcYekrub 3 years ago

    I'm confused did they announce anything?
  • AdamAsunder 3 years ago

    Well that was rubbish. Looks like I'll be borrowing an xbox to play Skyrim and that's probably my lot. I'm fed up with pumping cash into this water treading industry.
  • MiniAmin 3 years ago

    So disappointed.
  • irve77 3 years ago

    so that's that then ... at least the kinect game drought is over .. on the flip side the core games were gears , Forza and a rerelease of Halo .... followed by the promise of halo 4 next year ... hmm about 3-5 games shy there !
  • chessboxer 3 years ago

    Did they say that the TV content would be available for XBL Gold members because I didn't hear it.
  • SpaceMonkey77 3 years ago

    well that was interesting. kinect support is building nicely, while not abandoning traditional controls. I'd say I'm more tempted to get a Kinect now than before. Dance Central 2 kinda seals the deal
  • Rens11 3 years ago

    So other than halo 4 and halo hd not a single game that was announced at e3 appealed to me

    That ties with Nintendo from a couple years back as the worst e3 for me!
  • jamielfc25 3 years ago

    i want to cry
  • Machiavellian 3 years ago

    Pretty much what I thought it would be, queue up Sony. At least they did not waste anytime with those sales charts.
  • TheHitman 3 years ago

    God that was awful.
  • Ferral 3 years ago

    Would have liked to seen Rise of Nightmares for Kinect
  • myiagros 3 years ago

    can't see "number one selling globally" on what they have shown so far.
  • Bravestinsane 3 years ago

    Well that was a load of Shit, Halo 4 Dance Central 2,

    Oh well come on EA show me BF3 all i want :)
  • smelly 3 years ago

    So - big announcement is halo 4? Meh.. Excuse me while i go back to sleep.
  • mr_pink 3 years ago

    overall aftertaste: stale
  • MikkyX 3 years ago

    Well that was largely disappointing.
  • Doctor_What 3 years ago

    How did he move the character in the Star Wars demo, or was it pretty much on rails? In the trailer it looks like there's a sprint-forward movement you can do (it looks a bit like a Glaswegian kiss).
  • gerald 3 years ago

    hm, our conference was lame ... just slap an halo trailer at the end.
  • Incarta 3 years ago

    Told you...
  • carlosdfn 3 years ago

    Halo 4 was just a 20 second CG teaser OMG LULZ!!!!
  • couloir 3 years ago

  • caligari 3 years ago

    Halo. Yay!

    Oh - hang on. The last two Halo games were naff.
  • Killdare 3 years ago

    So, (rather good) shooters and "family" games. Yep, microsoft really covering the whole gamut of gaming from A to ... er A and a bit, there.
  • NotSoSlim 3 years ago

    One of the worst conferences ever
  • wapkaplet 3 years ago

    "New trilogy for Xbox 360"?

  • axman303 3 years ago

    Oh dear. The end. 2/10
  • spekkeh 3 years ago

    So running a franchise into the ground with incessant milking is now called the exciting dawn of a new trilogy eh?
  • TheLittlestHobo 3 years ago

    Oh well, time to sell the 360, been fun while it lasted.
  • whizzedout 3 years ago

    average
  • Power_n_Glory 3 years ago

    Desperate times, MS! Desperate.

    Had bring out Halo because it was an awful line up.
  • Bagpuss 3 years ago

    unmitigated disaster for MS in 2011...

  • LowEnergyCycle 3 years ago

  • smelly 3 years ago

    Im hoping for at least one big "OMFG" reveal at the end.
  • myiagros 3 years ago

    The Halo 4 big reveal sounds like it's going to be the only news worthy Microsoft story.

    Now if only someone hadn't leaked it 3 hours before kick off.

  • Syrette 3 years ago

    Microsoft seem to have forgotten that the vast majority don't own Kinect, and plenty never plan to any time soon. Way to alienate the majority.

    Avatar creation was very clever. Best thing shown tonight

    they went for a easy one.. all asian look the same sorry for the racist joke to much /b/ i guess

    So 2 years since announcing the tech they finally have a "lab" for experimenting with it - perhaps this would have been better a little earlier in the dev lifecycle
  • Daeltaja 3 years ago

    Ok, that avatar thing looks brilliant.

  • Daeltaja 3 years ago

    Whats with the bloody sunglasses? Looks like a bloody tosser.
  • axman303 3 years ago

    Let's just hope Nintendo usurp this dated motion nonsense with what they show tomorrow and kill off Kinect.

    Er, no. Halo DID change the way that games are played. It sent multiplayer through the roof, introduced two weapon loadouts, recharging health.. It was massive, whether you like it or not. Even if it didn't come up with all its innovations, it did them the best.

    It looked so incredibly stupid and pointless. And totally does not need Kinect at all. Ubisoft was doing that via the headset years ago in End War and nobody liked it.

    That was really smooth, how kinect should be implemented, improving things outside of the game.

    I would use a controller for playing the game, but could see myself using kinect for that, as i alreay own it, probably wouldn't buy it just for that though.

    Modern Warfare 3 looks largely like Modern Warfare 2. Can't really decide whether that's good or bad.

    Hopefully it'll bring at least a new idea or two, considering how many "new" people have actually worked on this.
  • Cronan 3 years ago

    Tom Cruise looks a bit rough; and kinda camp, even for him
  • Machiavellian 3 years ago

    To be honest, it probably would not be smart for COD to deviate from it's current formula. Reboot isn't needed until sales start to slip and nothing pisses your main consumer when you try to much new or go away from a formula people are use to.
  • TheBoyChris 3 years ago

  • asphaltcowboy 3 years ago

    @carrotcake As with pretty much everything to do with e3 I'm assuming the Halo 4 leak is a "leak" *nudge-nudge wink-wink* as opposed to a leak (no quotes).

    Do you genuinely believe that they published it by accident?
  • Razz 3 years ago

    What's the pre-show music like?

    In breaking news, apparently Take That have been torn to pieces by a stage robot during their recent Manchester concert. Yay!

    I don't know what MS could do to make me excited about my console again....Maybe
    1) TV tuner and PVR functionality
    2) Iplayer
    3) GTA5
    4) More games like Limbo
    5) HL3
    6) New console out next year....

    Not getting any of those. Not going to get a Kinect because how dumb it would make me look. Maybe I should go buy a PS3...

Our live coverage has now ended. Here's what you missed: Updating...

15:22 By Tom Phillips

Xbox.com lists "Halo 4", "Halo: Combat Evolved: Anniversary" and "Kinect Sports Season 2".

15:25 By Tom Phillips

16:22 By Tom Bramwell

In the queue for the Microsoft conference speculating whether MS will go with "Halo 4" or "H4lo". As long as it's got space gnomes and purple Barney the Dinosaur aliens in it, count me in.

16:53 By Ellie Gibson

Hello! We're just getting settled and ready for kick-off. Hands up who is so excited they feel a bit sick?

Braincleaner says:

i wanna see Steve Ballmer vs kevin butler, to the death. its the only real way to see who "wins" E3.

16:58 By Tom Bramwell

And we're in! Welcome to the Galen Center in Los Angeles where Microsoft is about to announce all the stuff we saw on Xbox.com an hour ago.

16:59 By Tom Bramwell

The auditorium is still filling up so we're probably a few minutes away from kickoff.

17:00 By Tom Bramwell

The stage is a trio of white circles drenched in green backlighting by a bunch of video panels - arranged, presumably not by accident, a bit the slides that you see on Windows Mobile 7, Windows 8 and the evolving Xbox interface.

17:06 By Oli Welsh

17:07 By Tom Bramwell

Haven't spotted any celebrity developers yet and nobody's asked me to put on a space poncho. Bit disappointing. Still no word on when it starts but Xbox.com is saying 5.30pm BST / 9.30am PST apparently.

17:12 By Tom Bramwell

If they announce Viva Pinata 3 I will storm the stage and fellate whoever is speaking.

ShakaCarnage says:

Kinectimals 2? I would absolutely hug midgets to see that announced, along with updated firmware, that finally allows Tom to play it at home.

17:15 By Tom Bramwell

To be fair, at least Microsoft didn't leave Halo 4 lying in a bar.

By the way, remember to tweet @johnteti with your E3-related comments, queries and opinionated nonsense. He'll read the best ones out on our daily E3 podcast.

17:25 By Tom Bramwell

"The briefing will begin in five minutes."

17:29 By Tom Bramwell

"The briefing is about to begin." TIME TO JUMP IN.

17:31 By Tom Bramwell

Lights going down...

17:31 By Tom Bramwell

Modern Warfare 3's up on screen. ECHO ECHO TANGO BRAVO ETC. We're getting a live demo.

17:32 By Tom Bramwell

Some dudes in wetsuits are cutting through a chainlink fence underwater. "Please reconnect controller." Brilliant.

17:33 By Tom Bramwell

We're gliding through the water using a little one-man sub device with other squad-mates doing the same. Looks like a traffic tunnel that's been buried under water - lots of rusting cars.

17:33 By Tom Bramwell

The squad of marines are going past lots of sea mines and floating bodies. Something's just exploded in the distance. "Eyes on your sonar."

17:34 By Tom Bramwell

As usual one of the dudes has a "Follow" prompt on him so you don't get lost. Checkpoint reached. A sub just rumbled overhead toward whatever your target is.

17:34 By Tom Bramwell

"Wait till she passes." Now we're following the big sub's rotors. She seems to be the target. Yep, we're planting explosives on the hull.

17:35 By Tom Bramwell

The sub's forced to surface by our explosives, so we do too. We get a shot of what looks like Manhattan - all the skyscrapers are pocked with huge gashes spitting fire and bellowing smoke.

17:35 By Tom Bramwell

Choppers strafe the coastline. In the foreground our dudes are breaking into the sub. We've got to reach the missile control room apparently.

17:36 By Tom Bramwell

Lots of shooting and kicking people in the face until they're dead. The sub's flooding. It's all a bit reminiscent of the underwater base bit at the end of Black Ops.

17:37 By Tom Bramwell

"in the interest of time..." pops up on screen. Looks like we're fast-forwarding to a later bit of the level. A klaxon's going off and we're planting a charge on the door.

Daeltaja says:

Looks cool, but set piece after set piece, with a generous helping of corridor shooter, no longer do it for me.

17:37 By Tom Bramwell

In the control room we go into slow motion and take out about half a dozen enemies one by one before whooooomphing back into normal time.

17:38 By Tom Bramwell

They're hacking into the sub's mainframe. Presumably they're looking for CC numbers oh wait they're changing the missile co-ordinates.

17:38 By Tom Bramwell

Now we're in a speedboat escaping into a flotilla of warships. There are missiles slamming into hulls, spray everywhere, boats with machineguns, etc.

17:39 By Tom Bramwell

Explosions, water, explosions, etc. FOLLOW. DO NOT DEVIATE FROM THE SET-PIECE.

17:39 By Tom Bramwell

Some sort of bridge tunnel chase thing. The boat just did a jump. Now they've driven the boat into a helicopter or something and they're flying away.

FightingMongoose says:

I just think Call of Duty would do better as a film, there's not really much game left in it.

17:40 By Tom Bramwell

That's the end. Everyone cheers. Infinity Ward creative strategist Robert Bowling and IW's Glenn Schofield are on stage now.

17:40 By Tom Bramwell

Sorry, Schofield's from Sledgehammer of course, as he's pointing out. Apparently MW3 is going to be "epic".

17:41 By Tom Bramwell

"It's truly humbling to be part of this game," he says. "We've been pouring our hearts and souls into creating this game and there's so much more to come. We can't wait for November 8th."

17:41 By Tom Bramwell

That's it for MW3. Don Mattrick is up. He's the boss of Xbox and he looks a bit like the kid out of Rushmore.

17:42 By Tom Bramwell

"Thank you for making last year the biggest year in Xbox history. This is an incredible time of growth and innovation."

17:42 By Tom Bramwell

"Technologies that sees us, hear us, and connect us all together are changing the way we play, interact and have fun."

17:42 By Tom Bramwell

Apparently we're all "flocking to interact with entertainment". And we're going to see "the next wave of Kinect experience", lots more about Xbox Live and "a better way to enjoy television".

17:43 By Tom Bramwell

But first the games. Here's Crystal Dynamics to show Tomb Raider.

17:43 By Tom Bramwell

Darrell Gallagher and someone Dan Neuberger are on stage. We're going to see a bit from the beginning of the game.

17:44 By Tom Bramwell

Lara is suspended upside down in a sack with just her head hanging out. She arches her back and creates momentum to swing herself towards some naked flames, which ignore the sack she's in. "This is going to hurt." It allows her to escape and she falls painfully to the ground.

17:44 By Tom Bramwell

She appears to be pressing X to jam a compound fracture back into her hip or something. No sign of T-Rex.

17:45 By Tom Bramwell

She's stumbling through a tunnel of bones and candles, past a body nailed to the wall like a crucifixion. It looks absolutely stunning, by the way. So much detail. Uncharted 2 esque.

spekkeh says:

Ah yes, they toned down the boobs but went for hardcore BDSM instead

17:46 By Tom Bramwell

Oops, someone's grabbed her. She kicks him away. She's moaning and muttering in terror the whole time as she crawls through a watery tunnel clutching onto a torch. She can barely get her head above water now - it's just her scared face framed by the close-up. The camera seems to shift dynamically to different vantage points sometimes but mostly it's third-person.

17:46 By Tom Bramwell

Apparently she has to use her survival instincts to find a way out. She goes into a kind of Batman Detective Mode which highlights usable bits of the environment.

17:47 By Tom Bramwell

She releases some sort of crate from a cage and sets fire to it and now she's climbing up a ramp. The cage is suspended on a rope and without the crate weighing it down it floats up towards the ceiling. This allows Lara to climb onto it and reach a higher platform.

Zephro says:

If the game features a genuinely fragile human character it could be more interesting than playing a superhuman man shoot.

17:47 By Tom Bramwell

She can see light at the end of the tunnel! But a rockslide blocks it off. Then it happens again. Now she's sliding down into the gloom again.

17:48 By Tom Bramwell

The whole place is falling apart as Lara races past falling rocks. She's been grabbed again and the player has to waggle the left stick to escape - after which her assailant is visibly crushed by a falling boulder.

17:49 By Tom Bramwell

Now Lara's climbing into the light. She pulls herself out onto a small cliff and surveys the outside world - it's a cove smothered in shipwreckes and plane crashes...

17:49 By Tom Bramwell

That's it. Fall 2012.

17:49 By Tom Bramwell

That was gorgeous. Speaking of which, here's Peter Moore!

17:49 By Tom Bramwell

"This feels vaguely familiar."

17:50 By Tom Bramwell

He's bigging up the accuracy and authenticity of EA Sports games. He's here to announce four EA Sports titles will feature Kinect support in 2012 - Tiger Woods, Madden, FIFA and one more that will be announced later.

17:50 By Tom Bramwell

You'll be able to call audibles in Madden, swing a club in Tiger, and... do stuff in FIFA. "We'll have more to show you and tell in the next year or so."

17:50 By Tom Bramwell

In the meantime The Sims 3 Pets will support Kinect.

17:51 By Tom Bramwell

That's it from Peter apparently. Now it's time for Dr Ray Muzyka and more importantly Mass Effect 3!

17:52 By Tom Bramwell

He's recapping what ME is about - the storytelling of traditional Bioware and the combat of an epic action game. For ME3, "the galactic war's begun". "Earth's been taken."

17:52 By Tom Bramwell

And Mass Effect 3 will also support Kinect.

17:52 By Tom Bramwell

Through voice recognition.

17:52 By Tom Bramwell

Jesse Houseton is on stage to demonstrate how it works. The idea is you can speak to your team using Kinect.

17:53 By Tom Bramwell

Ooh! It's the guys! Shepard and Mordin are having a chat.

17:53 By Tom Bramwell

The voice options on screen include "You let them die". Jesse shouts "You let them die" and it selects it on-screen.

17:53 By Tom Bramwell

It works quite well because the things Shepard says are slightly different to the prompts you choose from.

17:54 By Tom Bramwell

They're at some sort of Krogan station talking to a woman who's "the future of the Krogan race". Ooh!

17:54 By Tom Bramwell

You can use Kinect in combat too to organise your team. "Garrus, move up! Liara, Singularity!"

17:54 By Tom Bramwell

Shepard's shooting some assault troopers and just melee stabbed one with what looked like a blade extension of his Omnitool...

17:55 By Tom Bramwell

Woo, some sort of mental mech robot just landed. As with ME2 there's a nice mix of action and cut-scenes... Aw damn, that's it. More!

17:55 By Tom Bramwell

They're going to "set a new bar with Mass Effect 3". A space bar.

17:56 By Tom Bramwell

Expect more later today at the EA press conference.

17:56 By Tom Bramwell

Now we're seeing Ghost Recon Future Soldier. Some dudes are standing behind cover and saying WHISKEY ALPHA TANGO TANGO a lot etc.

17:57 By Tom Bramwell

One of them turns on stealth camo and they coordinate their attack so something explodes, people get capped and so on simultaneously. We're getting a cool flythrough of the level highlighting all the simultaneous strands of combat, UAVs etc.

17:57 By Tom Bramwell

That looked pretty swish, although hard to get a feel for what it will be like as a game.

17:57 By Tom Bramwell

Here's Yves Gullemot to explain more. "We've been big believers in Kinect since day one."

17:58 By Tom Bramwell

He says he wants to show us how they will use Kinect to enhance their core games via body tracking and voice.

17:58 By Tom Bramwell

We're going to see GunSmith - a new Kinect enabled mode for Ghost Recon Future Soldier.

17:59 By Tom Bramwell

It's about customising any weapon in the game even down to the inner parts. A weapon comes apart on screen and then gets reassembled - it's responding to the demo guy moving his hands apart and swirling them around. It's Minority Report for the NRA!

17:59 By Tom Bramwell

He's using a mixture of gestures and voice commands to assemble and customise his gun.

18:00 By Tom Bramwell

"Optimise for close combat," says the demo guy and the gun reassembles itself. "Randomise," he says and the gun does it again. Now he's testing the gun by leaning forward into a sort of gun-holding gesture. He fires by opening and closing his trigger hand.

DFawkes says:

I know this gun think is a gimmick, but it makes me grin like a moron :D

18:01 By Tom Bramwell

Yves Guillemot reckons we couldn't do that with a normal controller. "GunSmith will pave the way on Kinect." "All future titles in the Tom Clancy franchise will leverage Kinect."

18:01 By Tom Bramwell

Marc Whitten from Xbox Live is up next.

18:02 By Tom Bramwell

Marc wants to give us more TV, more apps, more ways to connect with friends. "At the same time, we must get the technology out of your way."

18:02 By Tom Bramwell

"At we enter an era where all your content can live in one place we are introducing an innovative new way to experience your entertainment."

18:02 By Tom Bramwell

"Welcome to the new Xbox experience." Play games, watch movies, listen to music and share with friends - do it all with Kinect voice commands.

18:03 By Tom Bramwell

"Xbox Music". You get instant access to more than 11 million songs on one panel. "Xbox Games". Games panel. Etc. It's all very Windows Mobile 7 with slides and stuff.

18:04 By Tom Bramwell

Whitten says they'll increase the number of partnerships by a factor of 10 and the content will grow from hundreds of thousands to millions. One new partner is YouTube...

rick_x says:

How much of this XB live stuff is going to be US only (again)???

18:04 By Tom Bramwell

"All of this content will bring into focus the next great challenge: discovery." Eh.

18:04 By Tom Bramwell

Bing is coming to Xbox too.

18:04 By Tom Bramwell

"You say it, Xbox finds it."

18:05 By Tom Bramwell

It's not quite raw web-browsing, by the looks of it. You search "Lego" and it finds all the stuff on Xbox services with Lego in it.

18:05 By Tom Bramwell

They search "X-Men" and it brings up all the X-Men game, movies and animated series in one place so you can buy, browse, watch etc.

18:06 By Tom Bramwell

"This is the year that live television is coming to Xbox 360." They're going to partner with people in the US and globally.

18:06 By Tom Bramwell

"News, sports and your favourite local channels, all just a voice search away."

18:07 By Tom Bramwell

He keeps saying "You search, Xbox finds it".

18:07 By Tom Bramwell

That's enough of that apparently. Here's a lifestyle trailer of some nuclear families using Kinect to watch Harry Potter in their lounge. I hope that sofa's more than six feet away from the screen.

18:08 By Tom Bramwell

Oh look, loads of massive lounges. Screw you guys.

18:08 By Tom Bramwell

Right, next on stage is Dana White, the president of UFC. He looks like he wants to hit someone.

18:08 By Tom Bramwell

"Xbox will revolutionise how fans experience live events on television." All the best fights will be on Xbox starting "this holiday", which I believe is "Christmas" in old money.

18:09 By Tom Bramwell

On screen you can flick between training videos, live weigh in, and jump in to watching the actual event. I think they just got some sort of TV achievement for "Knockout watched"...

18:09 By Tom Bramwell

There's a prompt to "call the fight" on screen so you can vote for who might win.

18:10 By Tom Bramwell

UFC Xbox Live. DONE. Now we're getting Phil Spencer from Microsoft Studios.

18:10 By Tom Bramwell

He's thanking "thought leaders like UFC and ESPN".

18:11 By Tom Bramwell

"But at our core Xbox will always be about games. Games you can't find anywhere else." Except on Xbox.com two hours ago.

18:11 By Tom Bramwell

"From this point on, everything we show you... is available only on Xbox 360."

18:11 By Tom Bramwell

We're starting with Gears of War 3.

18:12 By Tom Bramwell

Paranoid by Black Sabbath playing over footage of various Gears shooting Locust in the streets. And here's Cliff Bleszinski. "What's up guys, good morning."

18:12 By Tom Bramwell

He's going to show us a section of the campaign in co-op - playing along with Ice T who is also on stage!

18:13 By Tom Bramwell

It's been two years since the events of Gears 2 and it's all gone to hell. Jacinto's flooded, the Lambent infection's running wild, etc. The Gears are on a ship but a sea monster is coming after them.

18:13 By Tom Bramwell

It looks like a lambent Kraken. "We need to blow its brain out its ass," says Cole. We're inside the ship as its tentacles lash against the deck, crumpling the side of the ship.

18:14 By Tom Bramwell

Marcus moves into the heart of the ship. "Let's use the two silverbacks in the maintenance bay." Easier said than done with one of the monster's tentacles raking the deck.

18:15 By Tom Bramwell

They've made it to the Silverbacks - little mech walker things.

18:15 By Tom Bramwell

Ice T is racing his mech up onto the deck. (Words I never thought I'd have to type.)

18:16 By Tom Bramwell

They're shooting the lambent kraken thing in its glowy eyes to subdue it. Oh apparently it's called a Leviathan. Makes sense. It's buggered off for now. Ice T is rumbling around dropping fools.

18:16 By Tom Bramwell

Oop, Leviathan's back, mashing its maw against the deck while the Gears continue firing into its gob.

18:17 By Tom Bramwell

They just dropped a lot of bombs onto the Leviathan's head, which seems to have annoyed it a bit more, so they're jumping off the boat. That's the demo over. Looked good.

18:17 By Tom Bramwell

Ice T "has a gift for you". He's going to "reunite my rock band Bodycount" to do a song.

18:17 By Tom Bramwell

And they're off. Thanks Cliff! Thanks Ice!

18:17 By Tom Bramwell

Crytek's up next. What's this then.

18:17 By Tom Bramwell

Some sort of dog staring at an animation of a colosseum on a wall.

18:18 By Tom Bramwell

"There are two sides to every coin. There was a Rome of soldiers, statesmen and their sport. So to was there a Rome of squalour, struggling," etc. "There are two sides to power." The dog watches some peasants running and getting stabbed by a centurion.

18:19 By Tom Bramwell

Now he's out in the streets staring at bodies accumulated among rubble and burned out waggons. "An Empire will fall," says the voiceover. Now we're seeing swarms of people racing over a bridge. "A hero will rise. This is Rome."

18:19 By Tom Bramwell

Aha, it's some sort of Kinect first-person hackandslash. Here's a bit of gameplay where a guy is stabbing and slicing with gestures to take out the guy in front of him. The game's called Ryse.

18:19 By Tom Bramwell

Here's the Halo remake then. That music.

18:19 By Tom Bramwell

"Ten years ago" blah blah blah. "Billions of hours of entertainment."

18:20 By Tom Bramwell

"That was ten years ago. This is now. The campaign of the decade, remade and remastered."

18:20 By Tom Bramwell

Space gnomes! Looks pretty sexy. "Combined with classic multiplayer maps enhanced and updated for Xbox Live. A fully remastered campaign. Co-op over Xbox Live. And seven of the best multiplayer maps of all time."

18:21 By Tom Bramwell

Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary. November 15th.

18:21 By Tom Bramwell

Dan Greenawalt's taking to the stage to show Forza Motorsport 4. It'll deliver "an entirely new car experience".

18:22 By Tom Bramwell

It's all in-game footage. We're getting a montage of sexy-looking cars with POWER by Kanye West blasting over the top.

18:23 By Tom Bramwell

Kinect headtracking, community car clubs, rivals mode, 16 players, epic world tour.

18:23 By Tom Bramwell

Top Gear Test Track sighted.

18:23 By Tom Bramwell

Looks really gorgeous. These people know how to have visual sex with cars.

18:23 By Tom Bramwell

That's enough of that though - here's Peter Molyneux to show Fable: The Journey.

18:24 By Tom Bramwell

He says Fable's always been about you being the hero, so for the next one he's asking how we can feel 100 times more involved, "where power and control are at your very fingertips".

18:25 By Tom Bramwell

Here's a video. "Albion. A land long desired by those who should not possess it." We're watching a dragonfly buzzing through Albion, pursued by a hawk, then blotted by a guy riding a stagecoach. "When heroes are no longer born, they must be made." Dark clouds. The smoke monster from Lost, by the looks of it.

18:25 By Tom Bramwell

A gypsy woman jumps onto the waggon and they race away from the smoke. "Albion's end is coming. All that matters now is the journey."

18:26 By Tom Bramwell

We're in the driving seat on the horse-drawn carriage. The demo dude off to the right is using Kinect to hold the reins and whip at the horse. He pulls them back to halt the horse and dismounts. It's all first-person. He's firing off spells with his hands.

18:26 By Tom Bramwell

He lifts his arms up and makes a circle gesture to create a specific spell. On-screen there are two small circles indicating hand positions.

18:27 By Tom Bramwell

He draws them over the enemies he encounters to smash them with fireballs. He's now slapping enemies in the face with gestures.

18:27 By Tom Bramwell

It's not clear if he's actually moving forward by himself or if it's on rails but my guess would be the latter from observing the guy playing.

18:27 By Tom Bramwell

That's the end of that. 2012.

18:28 By Tom Bramwell

"Ladies and gentleman, please welcome back Phil Spencer." HELLO PHIL SPENCER.

18:28 By Tom Bramwell

"A year ago, an indie game came out of nowhere to become an indie hit." He's talking about Minecraft.

18:28 By Tom Bramwell

Ooh, they're bringing Minecraft to Xbox with Kinect...

18:28 By Tom Bramwell

"Minecraft is making its console debut this winter exclusively on Xbox 360 and Kinect."

18:29 By Tom Bramwell

He's also announcing a collaboration with Disney. What, are they going to close some studios together? Oh no, it's Disneyland Adventures, where you can explore the actual Disneyland and hang out with characters. Somewhere, Eurogamer's Chris Donlan is having a fit of excitement.

18:30 By Tom Bramwell

You can go on the rides and stuff too. Two photogenic kids are on stage using Kinect to do Peter Pan's Flight. They're waving their arms to fly, swerving left and right to collect coins, calling out the landmarks as they pass them.

18:31 By Tom Bramwell

Now we're going to see Alice in Wonderland. Some other photogenic kids are stamping on my soul - I mean playing croquet with the Queen of Hearts.

18:32 By Tom Bramwell

The kids just did a fistbump. "Kinect Disneyland Adventures... will be available in your home this holiday." Unless your couch isn't six feet from your TV, obviously.

18:32 By Tom Bramwell

Kinect Star Wars. Big cheer.

18:33 By Tom Bramwell

Rancor! R2! Clone Wars! Pod racing! Etc!

18:33 By Tom Bramwell

Coruscant (the whole planet is one big city), Bespin, lightsabres..

18:33 By Tom Bramwell

Star Destroyers and Starfighters...

18:34 By Tom Bramwell

Looks like a gameplay section now. Ships hurtle out of a Star Destroyer and approach Bespin Cloud City. We're a Jedi standing on a dropship circling a landing platform. There are droids below to mash up...

18:35 By Tom Bramwell

"Lightsabre on," shouts the demo guy. Now he's slashing his arm around to use his lightabre. Now he's using his arms to lift a knackered spaceship out of the way with Force Push. Doesn't look like he's controlling the character's movement.

18:36 By Tom Bramwell

It's third-person over-the-shoulder stuff. He's using his gestures to block laser fire with the lightsabre. Droid Destroyers are approaching firing out from behind their shields. He gets up close and slices through them like hot butter.

18:36 By Tom Bramwell

Now he's inside fighting one of those sentry droids that have lightsabre-esque double-ended batons.

18:36 By Tom Bramwell

Droids are all over the place and fall apart satisfyingly whenever he strokes his lightsabre across them. A frontal shot of the Jedi we're playing suggests he's a new dude. He looks a bit like a babyface Hugh Jackman.

18:37 By Tom Bramwell

Uh oh, we're in the carbonite chamber and there are a couple of Sith. "Welcome to your destiny, Jedi." They've both got dual lightsabres! And that's the end of the demo.

18:37 By Tom Bramwell

Aha, here's Tim Schafer to show Sesame Street.

18:38 By Tom Bramwell

Sesame Street: Once Upon A Monster "opens up a living storybook full of monster friends for you and your kids to learn from and play with."

18:38 By Tom Bramwell

Haha, he's just handed over to "the simulated family" - a bloke and a small child off to his left playing the game with Kinect. We're going to see a couple of the activities.

18:38 By Tom Bramwell

Elmo and Cookie Monster are jabbering in the foreground. "Phew, it's just a monster."

18:39 By Tom Bramwell

We've got to match the silly gestures and poses that the characters and the monster do on-screen. After the "magic" of Disneyland this actually looks quite cute and enjoyable.

18:39 By Tom Bramwell

If I had children I would let them play this game (after they've been down the mine anyway).

18:40 By Tom Bramwell

Now we're seeing the kid and dad grabbing at fireflies in front of a magical purple tree. Obviously.

18:42 By Tom Bramwell

Schafer says it's nice to be making a game his daughter can actually play. Anyway, that's enough of him. Now it's time for KUDO TSUNODA TO TALK AT 100MPH AND NEVER STOP TALKING IN ONE SENTENCE FOREVER AND EVER LETS GO JUMP IN

18:42 By Tom Bramwell

In saying that, he seems to be pacing himself this year. Still got the shades though.

18:42 By Tom Bramwell

He's talking about how Kinect Fun Labs will let you "check out the best innovations for Kinect".

18:43 By Tom Bramwell

It will let you play "experiences developed by the Kinect community" (i.e. hackers?) along with stuff from game devs.

18:43 By Tom Bramwell

He's going to demo a few of the Fun Labs bits made with the Kinect SDK.

Eraserhead says:

Is this man wearing a cardigan *and* shades? Good lord.

18:44 By Tom Bramwell

There's a woman onstage showing us recognition software that allows you to assemble an avatar without having to go through a bunch of menus.

18:44 By Tom Bramwell

It actually really works - she's on screen and her avatar, which it just cooked up in seconds, is wearing the same clothes, hairstyle, etc.

18:44 By Tom Bramwell

That's it for that - no we're seeing something to do with Kinect finger-tracking. This is Kinect Sparkler.

18:45 By Tom Bramwell

First he does a capture of a "fun pose". Then he adds "a nice fun background image". Now he draws on-screen with his fingers - the sparkler line goes behind the pose of him, which rotates a little in semi-3D.

18:46 By Tom Bramwell

That was cute. Once he's made one of these 3D sparkly diaramas he can share it online.

axman303 says:

Avatar creation was very clever. Best thing shown tonight

18:46 By Tom Bramwell

Next up from Kudo is "object capture".

18:47 By Tom Bramwell

Kinect Googly Eyes lets you scan in physical objects using the camera. You do a front shot and a rear shot and it then rustles up an on-screen version.

18:47 By Tom Bramwell

She jumps around and the on-screen thing (it's a sort of cuddly fuzzy monster) moves around matching her motions.

Mr.Spo says:

This is quite decent, but I can't help but feel Sony and Nintendo are going to blow this conference out of the water.

18:48 By Tom Bramwell

We're back with Kudo. He says Fun Labs is about experimenting and sharing and so on and blah and it goes live TODAY. It's available to all Xbox Live members.

18:48 By Tom Bramwell

And here's Kinect Sports Season Two. Baseball, skiing...

18:48 By Tom Bramwell

Golf, darts...

18:48 By Tom Bramwell

Tennis, obviously.

18:49 By Tom Bramwell

(American) Football.

18:49 By Tom Bramwell

BigPark producer Nicole Makila is on stage to show it off. There was a Rare logo too.

18:49 By Tom Bramwell

"We're bringing you six new sports you were asking for, like skiing and tennis." And darts?

spazmo says:

Kinect makes me look back fondly on the hardcore days of the Wii.

18:50 By Tom Bramwell

"Today we'll be showing you football and golf." She's using a sort of lean-forward-and-raise-an-arm gesture to zoom the camera forward in golf to admire the fairway from above. Then she does a golf-looking swing. "Just a natural swing, like I'd do on a real golf course." They wouldn't let you on a proper course with that shirt.

18:51 By Tom Bramwell

She uses voice commands to change club to a pitching wedge. I would've gone for a 9 iron from there but whatever. Maybe a nice flop.

18:51 By Tom Bramwell

Now she's putting aaaand it just rolls in. She does an air punch. This is RIVETING. Now we're seeing a game of football. Some REAL MEN are on stage talking FOOTBALL.

18:52 By Tom Bramwell

HUT HUT 42 ETC. The quarterback just got sacked. They pick a play from a list using voice commands - "Streak 40". They line up...

18:52 By Tom Bramwell

"Hey I'll see you in the endzone." This is GREAT banter.

18:52 By Tom Bramwell

The QB threw the ball successfully to one of the, er, runner guy people. He ran to the endzone. TOUCHDOWN.

18:53 By Tom Bramwell

Here's Kasson Crooker from Harmonix next to show us Dance Central 2.

18:53 By Tom Bramwell

DC2 includes voice control. Plus all songs from DC1 can be imported into DC2. More than 100 songs will be available at launch. There's also "simultaneous multiplayer dancing".

18:54 By Tom Bramwell

Two guys are on stage to show us some of the aforementioned simultaneous multiplayer dancing. The same rolodex-style line-up of dance moves is on the screen but on both sides - one for each character.

18:55 By Tom Bramwell

Don Mattrick's back to wrap things up I imagine.

18:56 By Tom Bramwell

"Xbox 360 will change living room entertainment forever," he promises. Voice search, Live TV, Kinect, a new generation of games...

18:56 By Tom Bramwell

"And Call of Duty downloadable content will be available first on Xbox 360."

18:57 By Tom Bramwell

"This year Xbox 360 will go from being the number one selling console in North America to the number one selling console globally."

18:57 By Tom Bramwell

"I'd like to share a first look... and the dawn of a new trilogy for Xbox 360."

18:57 By Tom Bramwell

There's a red cloud floating among the stars, and fiery smoke bursting from it. It's like a weird constellation or something. It's all very abstract and embryonic.

18:58 By Tom Bramwell

It's Halo 4. Chief is blasting around in a space station in zero-G. Flames everywhere. Cortana. Flying toward a big white circle of death. Halo 4. Holiday 2012.

18:58 By Tom Bramwell

The music was a bit grumpier than usual. And that's it! We're done!

18:59 By Tom Bramwell

Hope you enjoyed that. Time to head off to the Ubisoft and EA conferences. If you want to ascend similar new heights of excitement again later today, join us for the 5pm PST Monday / 1am BST Tuesday Sony conference... Until then.
