I hope it's not a rushjob.

That's definitely a possibility. I wonder if this ties to a reveal in early March? I can't imagine Microsoft would want to leave too much distance between Durango and the PS4 reveal.

thing with Killzone is it hasnt been a huge seller/system seller for sony, so banking on that is pretty bad, i fully expect sony will have some big games for launch and ms will have to have some too.

it wouldnt suprise me if the last of us is cross gen or something aswell.

im guessing we will probs see a new mainline Fable game or a complete reset now Peter molyneux has left.

i fully expect PGR to be announced, and you then have the 4 new ips and also Ryse from Crytek and maybe a new crackdown, and this is just things that are somewhat known (apart from Fable but they need atleast one RPG and i can fully see them rebooting the franchise now peter is gone and its next gen ).

Not showing it isn't a big deal at this point, and likewise being disappointed that it wasn't shown, or even mocking them for not showing it isn't the sign that someone is attacking your precious Sony for no good reason. Or do you think the press is out to get Sony as well since they commented on the very same thing? The irony of you calling someone else a warrior is too much. Just stop. This console war is going to be a long one. Pace yourself.

Guess I need to get rid of the Xbox 360, Wii, 3DS, and other consoles and handhelds I use on a daily basis huh? You can be upset that they didn't show the actual console all you want. It's a free country. However, Sony wanted to unveil it, get the functionality out there, and tease everyone for E3. No matter how much you whine and complain, it's not going to change that so all we can do is wait and watch. If you have any more need to discuss my apparent fanboy nature, you may send me a PM champ.

You will have plenty of time for that. Have no clue why that matters so much in February. We won't have a chance to own them till fall.

Hopefully they get Usher to demonstrate Kinect 2.

Yeah, I don't think software was their focus for this presentation. Sony did not show one system-selling game. Best to wait until close to launch.

And you're aware of every device the person you called out for being a "warrior" owns?

People wanting to see the console aren't wrong for wanting to see it. There's no reason to get belligerent over it. If Microsoft doesn't show it, we're going to say the same damn things.

You have no clue why some people might want to see what the console looks like? Really? Why show the games then? We won't be able to play them until the Fall. Interest is why. Hype.

I don't expect them to better it. Too early for Halo to be shown, the rest of their first party is not as interesting. They will have some different 3rd parties shown but the games will be multiplats none the less.

PS4 hype took a lot out of me, yet I loved it, then PS4 unveiling actually delivered which made me even less hyped for whatever MS brings, but I will keep an open mind.

Thought I might point out that Fable 3 was basically an uninspired Fable 2 mod while every main series final fantasy is a completely new game from the ground up, with often drastically different design choices (sometimes bad ones...). New combat system, new world, new aesthetic, new (lack of) exploration, etc.

Just thought the equivalency above needed a slight reality check, outside of the whole conspiracy theory angle...

Fable III was well written, well acted and funny. I enjoyed it more than I thought I would, the co-op in particular, but yes, it was rather uninspired.

The less said about the past 8 years of Final Fantasy the better.

I'm so curious to see what is in store from Lionhead, because Peter Molyneux departing seems like a very interesting twist for two reasons. Not only are they going to lose heat because Peter isn't going to be hyping their games way out of proportion, but now it's sink-or-swim for Lionhead. They don't have that big name guy anymore to back them up, so they're either going to cave or going to strive to do something better than ever because of all the pressure.

Do you understand how smart-marketing works? Microsoft is going to do anything possible to take steam away from Sony and the PS4, because Microsoft directly competes against them. It's not childish to make money.

The problem with Fable III is that it felt like a half-finished game, not that it was uninspired. The concept of leading a revolution sounded awesome on paper, but the reality turned out to be the last half of the game turned into this weird gameplay mechanic of binary choices followed by a rushed and boring boss fight/endgame.

Which I would love to see! I'm just pointing out the direction the series headed with fable 3, though, which definitely felt more like a rehash kind of sequel, rather than what the final fantasies have traditionally done. (And if you want to see how most FF fans react to lame rehash sequels, look at threads with XIII-2 and Lighting Returns announcements.)

I hope they keep the charm and general style of the Fable games, which is a mix of realism and like some kind of folksy Pixar movie (not the quality of the images, just the general style). I still love Fable (1), I think it's one of the Xbox's best games, and I think Fable II is a fun game, but a little flawed. I never played III because of the horrible reaction to it.

I think it was uninspired in that it took too many design cues from Fable II; it felt like grandiose DLC.

You're right about the last half, it should have been a lot more interesting/engaging than it was.
