It'll be Ballmer definitely, so many different and crazy face pictures to choose from.

Will they reveal the price however? Save it for E3 is my guess.

Hopefully they will have some games to show too, well besides Kinectimals 2.

That's cute, Microsoft. So the rumors say April, but will Microsoft really wait until after GDC?

That would be the biggest possible surprise for me, honestly. I think they'll both wait for E3 to announce at the same event without leaving room to the opponent to make final hour adjustments. Not that I expect great price differences on the hardware, but in terms of services they will offer very different models of business and pricing.

If Microsoft shows Kinect in any form my hype levels will be very low for the system. They need to focus on games for core gamers or I'll be disappointed.

Please don't pack Kinect in with the system.

I bet the services both consoles will offer will be very similar as will the pricing structure.

360 pricing wasnt revealed until well after E3 if I remember correctly. I think August. Be interesting if they follow a similar model.

Of course they are going to show the new kinect, just like Sony showed their camera system.

All hypothetical of course, lol.

Yes, it's predictable.

But one thing that wasn't predictable is the "GDDR5 isn't good for gamers" talk from Xboxgaf.

Let's see what they will say if MS change Durango's memory type.

There MIGHT be games that will also be released on PS4 there, that definitely has my interest, since I know I'm getting a PS4, and if they convince me to buy the next xbox, well that's a nice bonus. so I'm hyped.

Apple II, Commodore 64 and PC-DOS:

Mattrick founded DSI in 1982 at the age of 17 by personally developing games like Evolution[12] and Test Drive for the Apple II, Comodore 64, and PC-DOS

Sony showed the peripheral but their focus was on core games without any demonstration or even mention of camera functionality.

At least I hope MS doesn't build their games around the Kinect or I'll be wary.

If the rumored Cable deals are true Microsoft will have a heavy subsidized option tied to your TV cable bill, that Sony won't be able to directly compete with. That was what I had in mind with that post.

Also anyone who thinks that they're not going to show kinect even for a little bit is crazy. Their making it essential in at least the system UI section of the console and they're implementing some substantial hardware improvements in the kinect. I'm not the biggest fan of it, but keeping the talk to a minimum is the best we could hope for at this point.

Haha, arguing GDDR5 is not good is stupid.

I also see an explosion of "not interested/hype gone/not buying" if Kinect is flashed on the screen for more than 1/1000th of a millisecond. (from people that wouldn't buy anyway of course)

About the only thing MS could do to get me somewhat interested at this point is by showing off some nice, fresh, new IPs. If they start off by talking about Kinect, or show some new next-gen games being played with Kinect instead of a standard controller, I am so out.
