Yep, Jack Tretton comes across pretty well too IMO but the MS presentations are run by either utterly boring or hateful twats for some strange reason..
For once I agree with you. They take it a bit far at times, but on the whole it's much better than taking it too seriously. Similarly, Sony have been much more tolerable since Hirai became a bit more humble and happy to mock himself and ditched Kutaragi and brought Kevin Butler in. MS went and did the exact opposite, starting with J "Mental drunkard skater dude. Gnarly." Allard and now having their presentations done by Don "I've never played a game but I saw a Powerpoint about them once, it had charts and everything" Mattrick, and now their conferences are tediously dull.
I find it refreshing and nice to see such senior figures in the industry being so enthusiastic and childish about gaming and not being über serious and po-faced. Each to their own.
I can't help but find it a bit creepy and embarrassing.
