I will be floored if they don't show Halo 3 in some way, shape, or form.

Of course, after the 'ending' of Halo 2, I have no real interest in the sequel either.

Halo 3 will be an expansion pack for Halo 2 and have the missing final three levels. Just you wait and see.  ninja

I was looking over Microsoft's list of announced titles and its seriously underwhelming to me. How many action games featuring bald space marines in armor can they develop at once? We have:

Too Human
Gears of War
Halo 3 (if they actually showed his face, I'm sure he'd be bald)
Mass Effect

Technically all of these games are impressive, but aesthetically? I'm going to have to play the "meh" card. I hope Microsoft has a few surprises up its sleeve for the press conference.

Maybe he's just Carrottop's bad side?

I agree though.  Microsoft does pretty well with the FPS/shooter genre.  So what?  Its not hugely popular overseas, and they need a lot more then that to dislodge Sony.  

Where are the Microsoft platformers, RPGs, adventures, strategy, flight and other genre games?  Shooters, yes, Microsoft does those well.  But Sony pulls ahead in most other genres, and now with MLB, Sony decisively wins the sports genre.

At this point all MS needs to do is trot out the games we know they have to have in development in some form, and they'll be in great shape.

I'm not quite sure what was meant by that - EA has already announced versions of Madden for PS3 and Wii... maybe he's referring to the current version of Madden360 (which, let's face it, ain't all that great).

And if there are huge PS3 shortages in November through the holidays, Madden players will have to buy the 360 for their fix.  Or they can wait in line for a few nights and pay $600 for the PS3.

So they're admitting that the last 360 version of Madden wasn't really next-gen?  :wink:

I think it's closer along the lines of theres a "current gen" and "next gen" line of Madden games. Xbox 360 will debut the "next gen" line.

But, from what I've heard (I don't have a 360 yet), the 360 version was a pile of dung.

That is what they call the nail in the coffin.  Halo 3 and GTA4 coming out before PS3 really has a chance to gain a foothhold is huge.

This is huge for the 360.  This title alone will sell a shit load of units for the christmas season provided the title doesn't slip.  Can you imagine the number of preorders this game will see....

GTA 4 is 2007?  Would have been a complete win if it was 2006 though.  I'm also reading that it may not be exclusive?

Yeah, maybe, a huge win if its truly exclusive at least for a year or two.

Gamespot didn't actually mention what year it was coming out... if it is 2007 that's still sometime off.

Still... GTA 4. Wow. I can honestly say I did not see that coming.
