Microsoft's E3 2012 Conference Finished

Update: The conference is now over! Highlights included:

- Halo 4 E3 live stage demo (video)
- Resident Evil 6 live stage demo (video)
- Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 DLC exclusive to Xbox 360 first
- Gore Verbinski Kinect project announced
- Dance Central 3 announced
- LocoCycle unveiled
- Ascend: New Gods announced
- Xbox Music announced
- Tomb Raider DLC coming first to Xbox 360
- Forza Horizon release date announced
- Xbox SmartGlass streaming service announced
- FIFA 13 Kinect features detailed
- Splinter Cell Blacklist confirmed

Original intro: Join us from 5.30pm UK time tonight for live coverage of Microsoft not announcing Xbox 720 at the Galen Center!

Well, yes, everything the platform holder has said so far points towards nothing happening on the next-gen front at its E3 conference this year.

However, that isn't to say we won't get some hints about the future, or that we won't hear about things like multi-screen strategy, subscription services and other evolutions of a business model that's about much more than just Halo and Gears.

Microsoft knows E3 is a core gamers' event though, so there will be plenty of the latter. Expect to see Gears of War Judgement, Halo 4, Forza Horizon and other first-party titles. Expect a lot of third-party stage demos, too - we'd be surprised not to see Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, for example, and Tomb Raider was a hit last year so why not again?

Hopefully they'll lay off all the Bing stuff this time, but Kinect will feature too. Just hold your breath for those bits if it's not your bag.

Robert Purchese, out in LA for his first E3, will be reporting live from inside the Galen Center, and Tom Bramwell (hello!) and others may be throwing in some updates too.

The other platform holder conferences this year both take place on Tuesday from a European gamer's perspective: Sony's is at 2am UK time and Nintendo's is at 5pm. Yes, those of us in the Brighton office will be suffering by then. Join us!

    Could have been worse, they could have announced that their next big innovation is a BOOK...
  • DAN.E.B 3 years ago

    you had me at exclusive dlc for games that arent released yet
    not supprised alan wake didnt show up that show was a cure for insomnia
  • TheEarlOfZinger 3 years ago

    Holy shit. And I thought the Sony conference was poor.
  • snafu65 3 years ago

    Well there was 90 minutes of my life I'll never get back.
  • Bangaioh 3 years ago

    Weak. Glad I gave away my xbox.
  • TheRaunchySeagull 3 years ago

    MS just lost me as a customer for the next generation, I'm not putting up with 3 exclusives for another 6 years. I'm out.

    Nintendo and Sony only from now on. It's embarrassing how little Microsoft has done now with 2 consoles, all they've done is get by with Halo and 1 good Gears game (2 and 3 sucked).
  • Collymilad 3 years ago

    What a load of shite.

    The Wii U is looking more tempting by the day.
  • ChanTheMan 3 years ago

    MS are not a company that understands games or even originality for that matter. But as long as all the morons keeps buying their machine, they'll put in even less effort
  • Wabe 3 years ago

    The message is simple. Turn off your 360 and look else ware for something interesting.
  • IronGiant 3 years ago

    Utter garbage. MS can fuck off with their timed exclusive DLC, pathetic.
  • Darren 3 years ago

    Yawn! I hate to be right but that was one predictably dull conference with very little that was genuinely exciting. And Microsoft still think exclusive DLC is more important than having exclusive games. Oh dear. As for Kinect... pfffffft!
  • HelloNo 3 years ago

    We didn't have good announcements last time, but still had excellent games throughout the year. Shame they didn't make more use of it though.
  • Widge 3 years ago

    Who needs new games when you have:

    slightly higher FPS
    an online system
    the worlds greatest joypad

    ???
  • DAN.E.B 3 years ago

    I didnt see anything to stop me buying a Wii U oh well
    Bye MS I want a games machine!
  • djkav 3 years ago

    Didn't like the MS presentation. Just the usual recycled trash!
  • B3NN-TH3-B3AR 3 years ago

    Crap Microsoft just crap
  • Kaminari 3 years ago

    Amazingly boring (and more than once embarassing) conference. As usual with MS, the only interesting bit was the new Halo. Though I have to admit I'm more excited by the arresting engine than by the uninspired action.
  • rob_of_the_robots 3 years ago

    You know what the advantage that consoles had over PC gaming? That they were supposed to be dedicated solely to gaming.
  • LLJaf 3 years ago

    You can't be surprised at the show. Msoft are not good games developers, they rely on third parties. Tomb raider looks good, blacklist okay everything else was shit. Resi 4 and 5 were unplayable for me due to motion sickness and 6 looks the same.
  • makeamazing 3 years ago

    What i don't get is that MS do this every year, Sony keep pushing with new games, but Xbox still sells more. Go figure.
  • smallvillefan 3 years ago

    That was utter crap for the third year running.

    Microshaft, consider my 360 gone. It isn't going to take much for Ninty to sell me on Wii U at this point, all they have to do is remember they're releasing a GAMES console and I'm there.

    "Internet explorer"... Jesus fuck off you clowns.
  • jimnastics 3 years ago

    truly awful.... new games please! Got a feeling Nintendo are about to trounce this e3.
  • ronecvan_is_here 3 years ago

    I'm frankly tired of timed-exclusive DLC. Please MS, the bloody integration thing had gone a bit far and so has the new dance central. Seems like Halo 4 is the only shining beacon of hope for now.
  • Nodka 3 years ago

    That was so bad to watch the only entertaining moment was Matt & Trey trolling Microsoft.

    The actual smartglass remote bit for controlling web browsing was genuinely useful though they only bit of it.
  • Machetazo 3 years ago

    @Kanyeezy: oh yeah, that was quality by matt and trey, to pull that gag on-stage! What on earth's gone on with Forza - on the horizon: all the licensed sports cars are smoking wrecks? I hope Ubi can bring something good later. That Blacklist? Nah. I want nothing of that.
  • Machetazo 3 years ago

    That was painful. Other than the South Park trailer. I liked how they used the "new kid" angle, and the 4 main kid's costumes were v. good. That looks like a lot of fun. Call of Future Duty - seriously? :(
  • Tyedyed 3 years ago

    So worst e3 show 3 years in a row. Gg microsoft!
  • Kanyeeezy 3 years ago

    MS has not learnt from last years HOT MESS of a show, I WANT GAMES, like that dude from south park joked i dont care if it connects to my dishwasher while im flying a space
    ship, i just wanna god damn play ! grrr, ok so a few surprises but nothing extraoridnary, i am left waiting for something and we end up with COD which was ok i guess, oh well at least we didnt have those annoying kids on kinect from last year ! urgh
  • BeardofZeus 3 years ago

    "Highlights"? Seriously EG? :-)
  • makeamazing 3 years ago

    I got more enjoyment from doing the washing up, and i hate doing the washing up.

    Joking aside, smart glass, total waste of time and goes to show why the Nintendo pad controller will be just as useless imho. No one wants to be looking at a device when doing something else.
  • GI-Joel 3 years ago

    Fucking hell... No new games what a load of gash. Wtf is going on? Oh yeah every publisher has fucked off the people that make games. Now they have to resort to media to make money. FFS fucking tools.
  • nickal47 3 years ago

    I cannot believe how shit that was - as someone has already said do Microsoft actually like games? I'm fed up with them pushing all this kinect/movie crap, if I want to have a workout I'll go to the gym if I want to watch a film I'll rent a movie if I want to play games I'll turn on my Xbox... Oh wait
  • Afiddes 3 years ago

    I got more enjoyment from watching nintendos pre e3 show then I did in the whole of xbox's two hour snooze fest I honestly kept saying to myself this can't be it they must be leaving the best until last maybe a sneak peak at the 720 at the end but nope finished on blops2 such a disappointment
  • dimitrisdiamantis 3 years ago

    They should give Rare back to Nintendo. Also where was Remedy?
  • reverandglass 3 years ago

    So Halo 4 looked good and that's coming from someone who doesn't like Halo. Other than that Xbox seem to have taken on Sony's "It only does everything" philosophy. It's funny that after years of hearing "I don't want my games console to do TV,web browsing etc." from xbox fanboys that's exactly what we're all getting.
  • Baleoce 3 years ago

    Tomb Raider was the highlight of the conference for me. Met my expectations and genuinely looks great.
  • joeymoto108 3 years ago

    Disappointing show by Microsoft, to say the least. Halo, Forza, Gears, bunch of crappy Kinect gamess, 'new' XBL features... not enough for gamers imo.
  • Utilero 3 years ago

    Very very underwhelming... Microsoft needs something refreshing, the 360 feels so tired and outdated
  • RazorMaaaan 3 years ago

    That was truly abysmal. I hate you Microsoft, i wish Nintendo had good 3rd party support or Sony had a decent control pad so i never have to give you my money again.
  • bigtechno 3 years ago

    And oh yeah bitch you ain't cool just cause you have a tattoo
  • h15c0r3r 3 years ago

    Very poor :(
  • HIO 3 years ago

    So..Rip off Nintendo and Apple, add sports services unavailable in the UK, show some cross format games and infect everything with Kinect and tacky pop music.

    Should have stopped watching after Halo 4, the South Park game sounds pretty cool though. Worrying amount of games content for a games machine, hope Sony And Nintendo smash it. Like how Nintendo have started with the system overview video and saved time for games. A new F-Zero and proper Pilotwings sequel for starters please...
  • Baleoce 3 years ago

    Peter Molyneux says there was "far less Kinect emphasis this year". What presentation was he watching?
  • Baleoce 3 years ago

    Mediocre. It picked up at the end though. Xbox games on Windows 8 is the biggest news. Means I don't need an Xbox.
  • Indecisive 3 years ago

    MS Conference Stabbings Supercut needs to happen.

    Microsoft can just fuck off and die..a once great games console reduced to sucking in the shallow,vacuous HIPSTER CUNT generation.

    That CoD was mostly escort mission too.

    That's it???!! Christ, not so much throwing down the gauntlet to Sony as gifting them a brand new one. Halo 4 aside, very poor show.
  • schoozzzmmii 3 years ago

    well that was pretty damn poor. Think i might sit the next xbox console out if all its going to be is a media hub
  • makeamazing 3 years ago

    Well that was pretty unimpressive...
  • kinky_mong 3 years ago

    Well the Nintendo show could just be Miyamoto spreading his cheeks and farting the Zelda theme it would still be a million times better than that.

    Isn't COD just a rail shooter now? How it is different from Houes of the Dead?

    For this day and age, terrain destruction looks *really* bad in this game..

    Looks terrible but I'm sure it will sell.

    even the bloke playing it looks bored.

  • kassmageant 3 years ago

    in retrospect, black ops I E3 presentation was much, much better
  • cukydoh 3 years ago

    The only thing more depressing that this god awful MS conference is that this shitty CoD game is gonna sell like fucking lava-hot-cakes.
  • Huddy 3 years ago

    Even the mighty Don Draper would struggle to spin anything good out of that MS conference. Now where's my Canadian Club.

  • Breadbitten 3 years ago

    @TRUTH To be fair we know nothing about the new Splinter Cell's platform designations, bear in mind that 'Conviction' was a 360 and PC exclusive.
  • Afiddes 3 years ago

    Why would you not finish with halo??? It would have at least made me feel a little less dirty after nearly two hours of staring at shite
  • kinky_mong 3 years ago

    Would have made more sense to start with footage from a multiplatform game and end with halo 4 seeing as it's an exclusive. What a load of utter balls.

  • drivenstorm 3 years ago

    I do not understand this presentation. Wake me up when it's done.
  • sfp_noodle 3 years ago

    Notice how there's no COD reveal? It's been the first thing MS show at every single E3 normally. I have a sneaky feeling Sony will show it off for once, most likely running on the Vita.

    Attention game media types: Please do not hold back on criticism when you cover this.

    At least the comments on here are keeping me amused.

    Does anybody have any idea if Microsoft's Xbox app will stream the conference in HD?
  • MrSpew 3 years ago

    Really wasn't aware E3 was upon us - so little fanfare or maybe I'm living so far under this rock..
  • makeamazing 3 years ago

    Yeah killyourtv, i am surprised about the lack of E3 buzz on EG.. other sites seem to have a lot more information/downloads of key speech times, preview videos etc... quite disappointed, had to go to various other sites to get information.
  • makeamazing 3 years ago

    Lol yeah Internet Curtains... only Nintendo can sell that as a feature :D

    I expect nintendo to have the best conference just because they are talking about new hardware. I still think Sony should have a strong conference, as long as all the news isn't leaked before it starts. Hopefully MS will do better than last years drivel.
  • inferna_hermit 3 years ago

    hello Tom
  • killyourtv 3 years ago

    Surely by now Eurogamer should be providing a video stream like all other major video game web sites.

    Sole text updates were antiquated years ago. They are good for people who aren't in a position to watch a video and need the quick text updates.

    However, a video stream should run alternatively.
  • vert1go 3 years ago

    If Microsoft doesn't have internet curtains, they autofail E3.
  • louyfitz 3 years ago

    I'm excited about MS' Conference as always, but the Vita owner in me is screaming roll on 2am!!
  • sanctusmortis 3 years ago

    As an aside, the best setup for this would be conference on TV, this page on a tablet PC of some sort, IMO.
  • sanctusmortis 3 years ago

    Right, Gamespot stream at top of monitor, this at the bottom. Ready!
  • Quixz 3 years ago

    Prediction for this years E3.

    1. Nintendo will win hands down!
    2. Sony will do a great job as always.
    3. Microsoft will do a lot better then last year. (They better since the Xbox is my primary gaming console)
  • X201 3 years ago

    Look everyone, its simple.
    You have two browser windows open; a live video stream on one part of your screen, and Eurogamer's mickey taking on the other. Win \o/
  • Tekkirai 3 years ago

    @spacewarrior

    The casual market is hard to grasp, but Apple has them in a stranglehold pretty well. Microsoft is looking to do the same and has seen how to from Nintendo. Microsoft's real focus will always be Google and Apple in the broader perspective.
  • andrewsqual 3 years ago

    I don't think Microsoft knew the last 2 years that E3 "is a core gamers' event". Gears of War 4 gonna be at it and Kinect, that's my prediction
  • kassmageant 3 years ago

    @Frybird thanks mate
  • vert1go 3 years ago

    Will the music from last year make a reappearance?
    Do-dodo, do-dodo, do-dodo-do-dododo..../loop
  • LLJaf 3 years ago

    If microsoft knows e3 is about the core then what the feck was last years conference about.
  • Frybird 3 years ago

    @kassmageant: There's an App called "XBOX Live Event (Player)" or something the conference will be streamed through. If the conference isn't advertised on the dash, you'll likely find the player in the App Marketplace
  • kassmageant 3 years ago

    do we have to do something specific to watch the conference, or it will sit there in plain view on the dash? i'm not at home right now so i can't check it : p
  • sfp_noodle 3 years ago

    Well I'll be watching the conference on my 360, so sorry EG, I'll be joining you once it's over to share my thoughts :p
  • makeamazing 3 years ago

    It's going to be a long day, i've decided i might as well stay up till 2am and watch the Sony conference this year... yay.!
  • billy-beauts 3 years ago

    how did you know until you posted?

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

12:59 By Tom Bramwell

In case you missed it earlier today, we now know from Game Informer that Gears of War Judgment will feature class-based multiplayer, among other things. Expect more on Judgement during the conference, fairly obviously.

13:36 By Tom Bramwell

And there's been some movement on the Alan Wake 2 front, judging by tweets from Remedy Entertainment's Sam Lake. Set in a town named Ordinary?

14:49 By Tom Bramwell

Karl Stewart from Crystal Dynamics has just tweeted saying that Tomb Raider will be at the MS conference. "We have an awesome piece of the game that's going to blow your mind!"

15:22 By Tom Bramwell

15:23 By Tom Bramwell

We're testing our video feed and audio levels in the office, so I chose Eurogamer's default test material.

15:25 By Tom Bramwell

Ooh, VGleaks has posted what it says are screens capped from the Gears of War Judgment trailer, which hasn't been released yet.

15:42 By Tom Bramwell

Less than two hours to go now. Word from VG247 is that we won't get to see Phil Harrison rumbling on-stage during the Microsoft conference, which is a shame. I expect Don Mattress is a virtual certainty though.

15:57 By Tom Bramwell

Hurrah, more leaks! "Splinter Cell: Black List" screenshots, this time from Gamekyo.

16:29 By Oli Welsh

We're in the queue! In front of senior Codemasters and Capcom executives. In your faces, people who actually make games.

16:34 By Oli Welsh

I'm wearing pink to denote format neutrality. Gamesindustry's Matt Martin is carrying a briefcase because he's All Business. Bertie and Fred are carrying packed lunches.

16:36 By Oli Welsh

Forza Horizon-branded cars just drive past - a yellow Lamborghini Gallardo spider and a BMW 6 series drop top. Then Turn 10's Dan Greenawalt walked by with Ralph Fulton, creative director at Playground Studios which is making the game. I got to visit Playground and see the game a couple of weeks ago - look out for an in-depth story after the conference.

16:41 By Oli Welsh

By the way, Matt and I will be joining the legend that is John Teti for a podcast this evening to discuss the Sony and Xbox conferences. Should be available by the time you wake up in the morning.

16:44 By Oli Welsh

On the shuttle bus from the hotel we sat next to EA tech bod Richard Hilleman - "EA's Carmack" according to Matt. He was drawing technical diagrams on squared notepaper. Probably the next Xbox. Awesome.

16:52 By Tom Bramwell

Not really related to Microsoft (at least not any more), but Peter Molyneux just talked about 22 Cans' first 'thing', an app called Curiosity.

17:07 By Robert Purchese

Hello you cheeky readers you! It's Bertie and we're in position at the Galen Center for Microsoft's E3 conference. EA top dog Peter Moore is seats along from us, armed with his fierce, Ming the Merciless stare.

17:10 By Robert Purchese

There's a giant central screen and two adjoining displays that could be ears, if you think like I do. The lights are bright, Xbox green. There's a boxy and intermittently bubbly animation playing on the screen. Beats are a-thumping from the meaty sound system.

17:11 By Oli Welsh

I think it's actually the same set as last year.

17:12 By Oli Welsh

Hard times.

17:14 By Robert Purchese

The huge teleprompter is in plain sight of us, which is brilliant. Can we steal Microsoft's thunder? It doesn't say anything about Next Xbox yet.

17:15 By Robert Purchese

No sign of anyone from Sony snipping any important Microsoft wires...

17:20 By Robert Purchese

I wonder how much electricity is being cumulatively used by all these screens, laptops, phones, cameras, lights and robots. ARGH. A loud female robot voice boomed a safety warning.

17:23 By Oli Welsh

17:24 By Robert Purchese

Microsoft US bigwig Aaron Greenberg just sauntered past our row. No sign of a next-generation console under his arm.

17:25 By Robert Purchese

Announcement to take our seats. The briefing will begin in five minutes.

17:26 By Robert Purchese

Ha! We're to turn off mobile devices and flash photography. I can't see that happening.

17:27 By Robert Purchese

"Ladies and gentlemen, please take your seats. The briefing is about to begin, thank you."

17:28 By Robert Purchese

Louder, more focused music now. We're crescendo-ing.

17:30 By Robert Purchese

Lights down. We're on. Trailer. It's Halo 4, as you predicted!

17:32 By Robert Purchese

Sumptuous live action affair. Big spaceships. Some organge light sweeping through the quarters. Explosions. USNC starship being attacked. Being sucked down somewhere, it seems. Terrified faces. Screaming. The starship enters an atmosphere. Crashes. There's Master Chief!

17:34 By Robert Purchese

A giant, orange-glowing ball. Now gameplay footage. Is this the game's opening? Chief trecks through a tropical forest. There's a guttural roar. It looks very clear and sharp. The comedy Covenant scouts, with their stumpy limbs. Chief eradicates them.

17:35 By Robert Purchese

Something's not right, and Chief knows it. Orange glowing creatures swarming Chief. Gosh it's loud. They're some kind of defence AI, we hear. "Definitely not Covenant."

17:36 By Robert Purchese

A Chief-sized enemy, also glowing orange. "It's not organic." It's got blades for hands. Now there are some hovering enemies. They drop a weapon that Chief picks up. "It's Forerunner."

17:37 By Robert Purchese

The AI weapons piece themselves together magnetically as Chief equips them. "We're not alone." Chief switches to visor vision. Enemies everywhere. Fade to black. Cinematic montage. There's Cortana.

17:38 By Robert Purchese

Please welcome Don Mattrick, who looks debonair in his pastel purple shirt and foppish sweep of fringe. It's his 17th E3!

17:39 By Robert Purchese

Xbox 360 is now the number one selling console worldwide. It's not - Wii has sold more. But hey ho. He's talking about bringing all kinds of entertainment together on one device. Says we're going to have the greatest line-up of games ever this year, led by Master Chief and Halo 4.

17:39 By Robert Purchese

Gameplay trailer. Is this Black Ops 2?

17:40 By Robert Purchese

Talking in a different language. There's a bearded man saying something we don't understand and then, BLAM. The player beats the snot out of him. He's an agent!

17:40 By Tom Bramwell

Mattrick also said that "this holiday" Microsoft will be extending the Xbox experience beyond the screen onto PC, tablets and mobile.

17:41 By Robert Purchese

Lots of bone-snapping noises. It's Sam Fisher! It's Ubisoft. It's Splinter Cell: Blacklist.

17:42 By Robert Purchese

We're being told that the Blacklist is in enemy hands. We're on the Iraq border. Sam Fisher must capture and interrogate a leader to stop the next Blacklist attack. It's very brutal - Fisher stabs an enemy. Slow-mo! Fisher executes like Jack Bauer on steroids.

17:42 By Oli Welsh

The guy in front of me is REALLY excited about Sam Fisher's return. He air punched and everything.

17:43 By Robert Purchese

"That's killing in motion." It's an ability Sam Fisher has to kill on the move. Another throat slit, quietly. Fisher crouching as if on the toilet. Kinect voice recognition - the man talks to distract the enemy. The audience claps.

17:44 By Oli Welsh

Fisher Fan is letting out soft whoops, laughs and cheers at every execution. It's creepy/sweet.

17:45 By Robert Purchese

Sam enables some futuristic vision. Leaps onto someone's head and pummels them. Marks enemies. "Execute ready." Kinect voice instruction to air attack a jeep with mounted weapon. Boom! "Area's clear."

17:46 By Robert Purchese

Ah, the old camera under the door. Fisher bursts in through an exploded door, marks the enemies and kills them. Finds his mark, cut-scene plays. He's interrogating. Fisher looks young. The visuals are crisps. Sam lies about shooter the mark. And the trailer's over. The excited man in front is excited!

17:46 By Robert Purchese

Shipping spring 2013. It's the most ambitious Splinter Cell yet.

17:47 By Robert Purchese

EA Spots head Andrew Wilson takes to the stage. He looks as slick as ever, and a little bit like Tom Cruise. Madden and Fifa are to become better with Kinect, he tells us, his Australian twang apparent. He used to fight UFC-style in real-life, if memory serves me.

17:48 By Tom Bramwell

The Ubisoft guys also mentioned that Blacklist will feature Spies vs. Mercs, for those of you who enjoyed that.

17:49 By Robert Purchese

We're seeing FIFA. You can say "sub striker" and "sub three" and that's what will happen. "Formation one!" "Through me!" "Take a shot!" This is manager mode. "Yep, yep, ref - oh that's bleep!" Commentators hear this and say you reacted angrily. Available around the world this fall, autumn.

17:49 By Robert Purchese

I wonder how colourful your ref language can be.

17:50 By Robert Purchese

Joe Montana, an NFL quarterback, is on stage to talk about voice commands in Madden. Montana - no relation to Hannah - is going to demonstrate this.

17:50 By Robert Purchese

"Flip run." "Set height!" "Hurry up!" "Flanker dig!" "Streak!" What, did he just say streak? OK, Joe, I'm doing it!

17:51 By Robert Purchese

Yes!

kinky_mong says:

Tick "guest sports person" off your E3 Bingo Cards people!

17:51 By Robert Purchese

"This brings back some great memories, and I just might have an advantage being a quarterback with this Kinect stuff." Yeah, OK, Joe.

17:52 By Robert Purchese

Now a trailer for Fable: The Journey.

17:52 By Oli Welsh

Fisher Fan just booed the Fable The Journey trailer.

17:53 By Robert Purchese

Spells are being flung. Oh good grief he's really got the magic in his hands! Kinect turns you into a real magician! Blue light! "Beware the magic." On a more serious note - it's a very core gamer-style video for Fable: The Journey.

17:54 By Robert Purchese

Phil Spencer, head of Microsoft Studios, is on stage. He's got a black cardigan on. This will be the best year for Xbox 360, he says. I can see his speech on the teleprompter.

17:54 By Robert Purchese

World premiere trailer for Gears of War: Judgement.

17:55 By Robert Purchese

Baird being slammed in jail. Riotous noise. Locust battering forces. Baird on trial. City burning. Coming 2013. Extended teaser available online, apparently.

17:56 By Robert Purchese

Now we're watcing Forza Horizon, the open world Forza racing game. Superb visuals and blistering pace. And very, very loud music.

17:56 By Robert Purchese

DUBSTEP ALERT!

17:56 By Oli Welsh

AUDI QUATTRO YES. I heart Forza Horizon. Big preview at 7, people.

17:57 By Robert Purchese

Ow, ow, ow. Loud, loud, loud. Phew, it's over. October 23rd.

17:57 By Tom Bramwell

Presumably the reason there wasn't any Gears of War Judgment gameplay was because they haven't had time to make anything yet.

17:57 By Robert Purchese

Head of marketing and strategy Yusuf Medhi, the man who wrote a blog post recently about Xbox 360 at E3.

17:58 By Tom Bramwell

"You say it and Xbox finds it." Oh not this again.

17:58 By Oli Welsh

They're steaming through the new games here. Gears and Forza and Fable got short shrift. Something's afoot if you ask me.

17:59 By Robert Purchese

This fall, you'll be able to Bing-find what you want to watch by genre. He's demonstrating this. "Xbox: Bing comedies." And the menu returns what he wants. "Xbox: Bing action." And so on. "Xbox: Killer Elite." You can choose from multiple providers to play the content. More language support - 12 additional countries this year. "We want the world to experience the magic of voice search."

17:59 By Robert Purchese

It does look very responsive.

18:01 By Robert Purchese

Great support in the US! Oh and BBC in the UK. Sob, sniff. Announcing more partners. Nickelodeon. Paramount Movies. Machinima. Univision - one for the Spaniards. Now he's talking about sports. Perhaps he could hurry up and get it over with.

axman303 says:

Anyone else reached 95% boredom yet?

18:01 By Robert Purchese

NBA is coming to Xbox! Probably only in US. Does Michael Jordan still play? "Do you love hockey?" No no no. NHL is coming to Xbox.

18:03 By Robert Purchese

ESPN on Xbox is "about to get even better". Later this year, you'll be able to watch ESPN all the time - all the channels. We're watcing a trailer. "Xbox is your new home for sports!"

18:03 By Robert Purchese

The Fratelli's are playing.

18:03 By Robert Purchese

This is much better than seeing games.

18:04 By Robert Purchese

Oh dear - music. Xbox Music. Over 30 million tracks. It's going to be released on Xbox 360, Windows 8 PCs, tablets and phones.

18:05 By Robert Purchese

A trailer for Xbox Music. How similar is it to iTunes? Let's see. Just clips of people dancing. You can see what friends are listening to and share music. Big, Metro-style menus.

18:06 By Robert Purchese

One last announcement. Fitness brand. Nike.

18:07 By Robert Purchese

Creat fitness programs on Xbox Live. Vice president of digital sport at Nike, Stefan someone or other.

18:07 By Tom Bramwell

That was one last announcement from Mehdi, anyway. I imagine there will be more stuff... or, as Lando would say, this will be the shortest offensive of all time.

18:08 By Robert Purchese

He looks like Matthew thingy, the film star - all curly brown hair, and loose black shirt. I hope he's got Nike trainers on.

18:08 By Tom Bramwell

"We believe that if you have a body, you are an athlete," says Nike man. I beg to differ.

18:08 By Robert Purchese

"If you have a body, you're an athlete." He's taking about how Nike has expanded Nike Plus. Presumably this Kinect game will be an extension of that.

18:09 By Oli Welsh

Fisher Fan just air punched that, but I think it was a sarcastic air punch.

18:09 By Robert Purchese

Kinect Training. It can analyse body movement better than the human eye, apparently. You get the same fitness coaching that elite athletes get, apparently.

18:09 By Robert Purchese

Links to phones - reminds you that you're due a workout.

18:10 By Oli Welsh

Fisher Fan update! Likes: Sam Fisher, murder, sports. Dislikes: Girly fairy stories, exercise.

18:10 By Robert Purchese

Nike Plus and Xbox Live will help you find people to compete against. Here's a trailer for it. We're seeing people train but no gameplay.

18:11 By Robert Purchese

Ah, here's gameplay. Your body is a glowing blue or green silhouette. It shows what you're doing alongside the trainer. These people are so happy that they're exercising! It's all the endorphins.

18:11 By Robert Purchese

Here's the head of Xbox Live, Marc Whitten.

18:11 By Robert Purchese

He bursts on to the stage talking about smartphones and tablets! Deflation.

18:12 By Robert Purchese

He's very casual, with navy blue zip-up. Very shiny black shoes, though. He's going to show us a breakthrough in entertainment. Here's Xbox SmartGlass!

18:13 By Robert Purchese

This links all devices that you own, regardless of brand. He's using a Windows 8 tablet to demonstrate. He was watching Sherlock Holmes, the movie. He part watched it. Now he wants to pick it up on the telly, so he sends it using SmartGlass. SmartGlass froze his tablet and sent show information to it.

18:14 By Robert Purchese

He's using Kinect voice commands. "Xbox Favourites." "Game of Thrones." He really, really likes Game of Thrones. He thinks they blew their budget it's so good. He's watcing it on the TV and his phone and tablet are keeping up with what's going on via SmartGlass.

18:15 By Robert Purchese

"This is the magic of SmartGlass, when devices work together to immerse you in entertainment." Hmm.

RodHull says:

What in shitting crikey is he on about?

18:15 By Robert Purchese

Madden from EA Sports on screen. He's making a play using his tablet.

18:16 By Tom Bramwell

We've been capturing video of all this in parallel, by the way, and hope to have segments like the Halo 4 and Splinter Cell bits up for you to re-watch shortly. (Er, we might leave the Nike Plus stuff alone though, if you don't mind...)

18:16 By Robert Purchese

Halo 4. New Waypoint Data Unlocked and he's accessing the data on his tablet. I say he, but this is a trailer.

18:17 By Robert Purchese

"This is the cool part." Wait for it! He can use his phone as a remote CONTROL!

18:18 By Robert Purchese

Kinect and Xbox SmartGlass are bringing the web to Xbox. A browser. "Keyboards don't belong in the living room." He's announcing that Internet Explorer is coming to Xbox this year.

18:19 By Robert Purchese

My eyes are glazing over. He's demonstrating IE on Xbox Live. He's waffling on about Prometheus. "Xbox Play" It's a trailer. Stuttering - is it streaming properly? Giggle.

18:20 By Oli Welsh

I think that whole Trojan horse thing with video games is over, people.

18:20 By Robert Purchese

A fast, fluid and intuitive broswer in the living room for "the first time", he declares. Now he's taking us to the Aston Martin "web hub". You can control the page with your tablet or phone. It's easy to do this, it's easy to do that. It's easy to fall asleep, that's what it is.

18:22 By Robert Purchese

He's talking about Windows 8 and Xbox. He's talking about taking all kinds of entertainment on the go with you. SmartGlass will be a part of Windows 8, too.

18:22 By Robert Purchese

Bisson and Gallagher from Tomb Rainder studio Crystal Dynamics now.

18:23 By Robert Purchese

We're seeing an action-packed sequence from later in the game. Lara has a crossbow, her hair is flapping improbably in the wind. She's being shot at. A lot.

18:23 By Oli Welsh

Fisher Fan just went YAAAAY VIDEO GAMES. I'm with you on this one, brother.

18:24 By Robert Purchese

She swoops down a zip wire. This action adventure game is heavy on the action. Lara's dirty. She smashes through a building and the enemies don't notice.

18:25 By Robert Purchese

She's got a shotgun! She's shooting some barrels! Boom! Blood! Crossbow shhlunk. Into some rapids. She loses her grip and is swept away in a dramatic sequence. She's smashing into all sorts of flotsam.

18:25 By Tom Bramwell

Aha, Ubisoft beat us to the Splinter Cell gameplay footage. It's up on YouTube and embedded in our Blacklist story.

18:26 By Robert Purchese

She lands in the suspended cockpit of a crashed plane over waterfall. Tense music. Is she going to be ok? No! She falls. But ah, a parachute. No, it's not opened. Yes, it has now. She's smashed into trees as the parachute flies at the mercy of the wind. She's really taking a beating.

18:27 By Robert Purchese

She's up on her feet, blood on her face. She's really hurt her tummy - something she ate? But, umm, where are the tombs?

18:27 By Robert Purchese

The first piece of DLC for Tomb Raider will come out first on Xbox 360, hence the Microsoft conference presentation.

18:28 By Robert Purchese

Phil Spencer's back on stage. He's got a pixel person print on his t-shirt. "We're investing in new stories." Twisted Pixel. Or from visionary director of Pirates of the Caribbean. World premieres coming up.

18:28 By Robert Purchese

Signal Studios - Toy Soldiers dev. Ascend: New Gods. Asynchronous multiplayer across Xbox Live and phones. It's fantasy.

18:29 By Robert Purchese

Men in armour scything each other apart. Lots of blood. It's third-person. Looks a bit dated.

18:30 By Robert Purchese

Here's a giant enemy. He climbs its body like Kratos, and kills it. It's coming out in 2013.

18:30 By Robert Purchese

Here's something from a school of assassination. Something called Iris. A robot? The first female cadet to break the 3 minute mile.

18:30 By Robert Purchese

Twisted Pixel. 2013.

18:31 By Robert Purchese

Now Pirates man Gore Verbinski. A giant futuristic city scape. Another orange glow, now blue. A bit Tron-like. Eyeball-like robots sizing each other up. The cityscape is changing. It's called Matter. It's made for Kinect. It's coming out 2013.

18:32 By Robert Purchese

Capcom are on stage. Kobayashi and Sasaki. We're seeing Resident Evil 6. Leon's on the deck, struggling. He grabs his gun, helps a woman - Jill?

18:33 By Oli Welsh

Neck stabbing is definitely this year's slow-motion helicopter crash.

18:33 By Robert Purchese

Now they're shooting zombies. They're in a destroyed city. In Resi style, action slows as Leon aims. He's stabbing a zombie with his knife. Is this co-op? A horde of zombies charging down a corridoor.

18:34 By Robert Purchese

Wow! Splat! One big shot clears the lot in a gory mess. Was that a quick-time melee moment?

18:34 By Robert Purchese

It's quick-time! Leon smashes a zombie's head into a van. He's dual wielding pistols!

18:35 By Robert Purchese

He's trying to outrun an explosion now, dodging through stationary vehicles. Now he's clambering over them. How athletic. Now he's done a classic action-film leap into a helicopter and he's shaking off pursuing zombies.

Lunastra78 says:

The throatstab is the new headshot

18:36 By Tom Bramwell

Presumably he's going to find a hidden emblem in this helicopter which he can later use to open a door hidden in a gravestone.

18:37 By Robert Purchese

The helicopter's in trouble - it looks like the pilot has turned zombie. The chopper scrapes a train, crashes through an office. The pair are flung from the wreckage and surrounded by zombies. "Not my lucky day," Leon quips.

18:38 By Robert Purchese

Alex Ruiz from the Xbox Live team. She's got a nice grey waistcoat on. We're imagining a friendly cartoon game with castles and goblins and, wait for it, Kinect. Racketeer, exclusive to Xbox Live.

18:39 By Robert Purchese

She's using a slingshot to attack a castle. She says launch and then coaxes the ball towards the castle. It's a points-scoring game - you're awarded better numbers the more damage you do. She's really excited but no one in the audience seems to be.

18:39 By Robert Purchese

Looks similar!

munki83 says:

Angry birds 3D ?

18:39 By Robert Purchese

It's launching on Xbox Live this summer.

18:39 By Robert Purchese

Now we're seeing Obsidian's South Park RPG. Cartman's narrating.

18:40 By Robert Purchese

The South Park boys are dressed as fantasy heroes. They need the New Kid to help them be saviours.

18:40 By Robert Purchese

Starring... You!

18:41 By Robert Purchese

All the classic South Park faces and humour is here in abundance. South Park: Stick of Truth, March 5th 2013.

18:41 By Robert Purchese

It's South Park creators Matt Parker and Trey Stone!

18:41 By Robert Purchese

They're making a joke about connected devices! It's genuinely funny.

18:42 By Robert Purchese

They want you to feel like you're in an episode of South Park. We would not believe how hard it took to look like South Park. Turn-based JRPG-style battles screenshot.

18:43 By Robert Purchese

They're joking about how they had to map out the world when they usually just cut away to different interiors.

18:43 By Robert Purchese

And they're off. NO DON'T GO!

18:44 By Robert Purchese

Harmonix now. Dance Central 3. It, err, looks like the other games. Look at them popping and locking and busting some moves. They're fly. It's Usher Raymond! He worked with Harmonix to design choreography for two songs. Anyone can learn the moves to his new single Scream in the game.

18:44 By Robert Purchese

He's going to show us some of his much vaunted dancing. Holy cow, he's here, it's Usher on stage!!

18:45 By Robert Purchese

He's got his crotch in his hands and his white sneaks on. He wants us to get up on our feet, which is going to be really difficult while trying to live text report.

18:46 By Robert Purchese

My head's bopping automatically. I spotted a Michael Jackson dance move there. They're running through the routine that you'll get to learn. All hands in the air, turns and gyration. He's a good mover.

18:46 By Robert Purchese

This is Usher madness! Sorry, I couldn't resist.

"If you want to scream" seem like very appropriate lyrics.

Dance Central 3 is on the screen behind him, going through the same routine. Smoke plumes! I wonder if Phil Spencer is dancing. I can't see him.

Words I never really expected to hear during this conference: "Let's give it up once again for Usher and his crew."

Don Mattrick's back on stage. "At Xbox, we're ushering in a new golden age of entertainment." It's a pun. It's supposed to be funny.

He's talking about Xbox 360 as an entertainment hub, as we thought he might. "And this is only the beginning." Closing with another blockbuster. Once again, all new content will launch on Xbox 360. It's Call of Duty: Black Ops 2.

Bored? Watch the Halo 4 live gameplay stage demo again.

Where's the video? We've got a still and a voice over. Oh, here we are. It's an on-stage demonstration. A man in a vehicle is in a really bad way. Madam President is in the vehicle.

They're going Downtown LA - that's where we are!

Black Ops 2 looks good - nice hues of yellow. It's smooth, too.

There's a big crash and we're crawling out of the wreckage. We're Agent Jones. Now there's fighting and gunfire everywhere and we're clambering across a destroyed bridge in the midst of it all. We've taken control of what looks like an AA gun. We're shooting bogeys out of the sky. Gameplay is impressively smooth here. It's worth saying that again.

We're providing cover fire with a sniper rifle. We're shooting through cover using our nifty scope to pick out targets. You can apparently pick people out a long way away. How will this work in multiplayer?

"In the interest of time..." The words appear on the screen and we're at a different section of gameplay. More frantic helicopter shooting, and barking orders down comms.

18:57 By Robert Purchese

It's a nice demo but it's not particularly exciting. Is it worrying that Microsoft doesn't have a big exclusive to close its conference with?

18:59 By Robert Purchese

More sniping using the scope that can pick out enemies behind cover. A whole building is coming down in front of us! And we fade out. We return in the aftermath. We're going to "Use" a fighter plane.

19:00 By Robert Purchese

The character has never flown one before. But up, up and away we go. It's an FA38. We're tracking and protecting a car, highlighted in green on the ground before us. Doesn't look particularly difficult to fly this plane. What a lot of brown.

Oh phew it's over. Black Ops 2, 13th November. And that's it. We're done. Thanks for reading!
