MS E3 Presser Includes Fable, Minecraft, and Halo Announcements

The Microsoft E3 2011 Press Conference Video is now on G4tv.com, offering Microsoft's full E3 press presentation, featuring more middle-aged men on stage in headsets than the next Backstreet Boys reunion. The conference includes the revelation of Minecraft for Kinect, a remake of the original Halo with Halo Reach graphics along with plans for Halo 4, 5, and 6, and the unveiling of Fable: the Journey, which in typical fashion is described by Peter Molyneux as making the player "feel 100 times more involved" than its forebears, in spite of being a rail shooter to all appearances (no platforms besides the Xbox were mentioned). There are also Kinect demos for Modern Warfare 3, Gears of War 3, Mass Effect 3, and more, as well as the announcement of the rumored Xbox TV. The most dangerous drinking game to play while watching would be to do a shot every time Kinect is mentioned, which would render you dead long before the end of the clip. On the other hand, taking a drink every time the PC or Windows is mentioned will leave you as sober as a judge.

Halo CE with Reach graphics. Ooooh!! I can't wait to pay 60 bucks for a game I already played 10 times over the last 7-8 years.
Based on the post-conference interview on GT, it won't carry a full retail price but will probably be priced similarly to ODST. Not quite expansion price, but not $<price of new game> either.

Still, if all they've done is put a new graphical layer on top (though switching back and forth could be a fun novelty in places), Halo CE would've needed some serious level re-design for me to touch the campaign again. There were quite a few cut&paste levels that just went on and on and on... Ugh.
