Although I really do appreciate attempting to be corrected about something that I actually did.
I rightfully corrected you because you were wrong. You wrote in your original post "the second
generation of 360 games" when clearly it WASN'T the second
generation of XBOX360 games at E3 2005 when the XBOX360 had not even been released yet. E3 2006 or more accurately E3 2007 was the first show which showed the second generation of XBOX360 titles NOT E3 2005 which barely showed the first generation of XBOX360 titles. Yes, you may have attended E3 in 2005, but your description of the event was wrong.
the 360 was out on display, playable, in the MS booth and the EA booth.
Actually the 360's weren't in the booths. There were running videos of XBOX360 games in booths and there were some console cases under glass, but working consoles weren't there. Microsoft had very tight restrictions on their display at the show. To actually see and play an XBOX360, you had to get a private demo. I know because I got those demos.This comment was edited on Jul 17, 20:19.
