So Im following it here (http://www.gamespot.com/e3/e3story.html?sid=6149698) and here (http://www.engadget.com/2006/05/09/engadget-and-joystiqs-live-coverage-of-microsofts-xbox-360-e3-ev/) and so far theyve announced a bunch of awesome arcade games coming soon.

Pac-Man, Contra, Galaga, Frogger, Sonic, Defender, Street Fighter II, Time Pilot, Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3, Rally-X, Dig Dug, Ms. Pac-Man, PaperBoy, and Rootbeer Tapper, Lumines Live.

Thats pretty cool in my opinion. Ill admit Im pretty excited as I read this minute by minute update. I thought Id start a thread we could use to comment on the news in, instead of having a million E3 threads.

Im downloading the Halo 3 trailer, but its going painfully slow. Heres the description.

With its defensive forces all but obliterated, Earth has fallen to the unstoppable might of the Covenant. These alien occupiers have discovered something beneath the ancient African sands - something incredible... something Forerunner.

OMG all of this sounds awesome.

xfrancox
05-09-2006, 07:56 PM
This sounds interesting.

12:44: Gates announces new platform--"Live Anywhere." Will be part of Windows Vista--will have one user interface, one identity, one friends list, one message center, one marketplace. Same as Xbox Live 360, same interface, embedded in Windows.

12:45: Gates talks up mobile phone gaming, says there's a "lot of opportunity."

12:48: Gates says Live Anywhere will extend to mobile phones, but is vague on specifics. Says that Microsoft is the only company in the world capable of such an undertaking.

12:51: Scot Henson, director of platform strategy for Xbox and Windows takes the stage to show off Live Anywhere. Starts up game of Shadowrun, connects with friends list--which shows whether his friends are on a PC, Xbox 360, or mobile phone. He sends message to Major Nelson, who is working on a Vista PC. On the right-hand side is his friends list, just like Xbox 360--GamerTag on there too. Henson says acheivements on any platofrm will add to one single gamer score, and GamerTag will be the same too.

2:53: Live Anywhere will have the same reputation anywhere, says Henson. He then pulls out a Motorola Q cell phone with Windows Mobile. The phone has the Xbox Arcade games he downloaded on his Xbox 360 ON HIS PHONE. He plays a game of Zuma. Then he plays a music video he downloaded onto his Xbox 360 on his phone. The phone menu also has a movie options for "X-Men."
-------

12:51 pm - Henson is starting game of Shadowrun on Xbox. He is automatically signed into Xbox Live; looks at friends list: can see friends on Xbox 360, mobile, and PC. "One gamertag no matter what the platform is ... of course I will be able to real time voice chat while we are playing cross-platform."




Hmmmm.... too bad Im a Mac user, haha. Maybe when bootcamp is official and not a beta, it will support Vista.

Psycence
05-09-2006, 07:59 PM
12:55: Moore gets on stage and gives recap. Says games will all be playble, then Gates says "Hey Peter, let's play these people a snippet of a game they might like to see..." Crowd goes wild, trailer comes up. Halo theme plays, scen of a wartorn wasteland. Long figure can be seen therogh the smoke. Cortana alerts screen. MASTER CHIEF WALKS OUT.

Psycence
05-09-2006, 08:02 PM
12:59: HOLY CRAP, GIGANTIC Covenat dropship... dozens of them. Sky swarming with banshes over gian crater is actually a giant forerunner gateway--the gateway lights up, screen goes white, HALO 3 LOGO APPEARS.

1:00: Crowd goes ballistic. Lights come up and the conference is over.

So after watching I have some things I want to point out.

1. The music is amazing.
2. He has an old school Assault Rifle.
3. It is NOT coming out on PS3's release date.
4. Cortana is acting pretty buggy.

05-09-2006, 08:57 PM
microsoft has a good chance of beating sony with all this, especially considering the 500$/20 gig 600$/60 gig price announced for ps3 i think yesterday.

I loved Lumines when I had my PSP. Ill most likely get this. Also after playing Test Drive Unlimited, I definitely want that. Mortal Kombat is gonna be awesome too.

yeah hella ur right, 360 and ps3. for content, we can probly expect some more trailers, the "tv show" things theyre talking about like for gears of war, and possibly a demo, but i wouldnt cancel out the option for in game DLC. my only question is, what would it be?

Thief, the date was mentioned in regard to GTA 4 :D

And as for Minty and DJ, bring on your best shot :p :woop: I can take it and dish it out just as good too, oh yeah, don't worry about that beer thing, already on it! ;) I also like to be organised DJ :D

But How FUCKING Awesome Was Yesterday's News.
The Gears of War Trailer is unbelievable. Fable 2, OMG, the GTA 4 announcement was enough to make you slap your Mommy four days before mothers day, Too Human, OMG, and Halo 3 dear lord we are not worthy.
I just wish there was something better from LucusArts I mean where is KOTOR 3. And this isn't counting all the way cool retro arcade games announced. The only downside is the damn downloading issues on XBL, but luckily I got Uno, and my trailers before everyone and their Mommy got online last night and the system went to hell.

Afraid to tell you GTA IV is for PS3 as well. Just it will have exclusive downloadable content for the 360.

Psycence
05-10-2006, 04:21 PM
Yes but the fact its coming to 360 at the same time as PS3 is a very big thing as its normally a ps first game then everyone else later wen we feel like it.

So lets give some love to rockstar

QFT

Just wanted to point this out again since some people think it's only coming for 360 or is a timed exclusive like some sites were reporting first. However, this is not the case. Same time, ps3 and 360, downloadable content for 360.

xfrancox
05-10-2006, 04:57 PM
The GOW trailer looks incredible. Forza looks amazing. I cant wait for Lumines and Mortal Kombat. The wireless headset will most likely be something I buy, and HD-DVD will be awesome. Live Anywhere wont benefit me (Mac user) and I dont know if Id use the Vision. All in all, Im excited.

A question I had to the Admins, any idea when these games are going up on the Forums? Itd be nice to post things about them in their respective forums. Especially Halo 3....

Psycence
05-10-2006, 05:00 PM
