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.

Seriously I did expect that alot of the shows focus would be on Kinnect since it apperently sells like hotcakes. But this much? When they announced Kinnect Sports 2 I thought I was watching some boring Nintendo shit. Ok so yeah I get that mainstream is important and everything but please MS dont go the Nintendo route. Please give us hardcore gamers something at least. Halo 4 2012 and before that Kinnect only seems to be the deal this year sadly...

Oh well at least I got BF3, SW MMO, Diablo 3 and StarCraft 2 on my PC. I check back on consoles next year thank you.

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.

We'll probably get..a ported version of Fable with Fable 2 graphics....Minecraft is your one of your big announcements?? The future is bright, the future is now. GFWL FTW!! Totally Righteous!!

That Fable game wouldn't even make a good minigame.
It'd make a good $5 downloadable proof-of-concept that you play once and go "ooo, it's like I'm living in the future" then forget 10 minutes later.

Failures? Kinect is making Microsoft money hand over fist.

It's that successful? My understanding was anyone who bought one is long since gotten bored of it. People are still playing it?

The thought occured to me that the only reason they're all over Kinect in the press conference is because they realise the software lineup has gotten stale and really needs to improve.

The most pathetic conference ever.. The degree of Kinect shoe-horning was incredible.

Also, MS' renewed commitment to PC? I'd say that's failed. Fistbump!
