This is the main thread for Microsoft's press event.

This is not a press conference, more of a demo area.

While personally most excited for Halo: CEA out of MS's fall line-up, I think most of the content relating to that will be saved for HaloFest at PAX next week.
Personally hoping for a video look at the new Dashboard and some XBLA stuff. It was here that I discovered ilomilo last year.

The titles below are those I expect their to hear more from.

I'll update this as best I can, your patience and assistance is appreciated :)

Wonder if there will be bf3 for consoles.
From what i heard ps3 is there.
But the 360 is getting a lot of last minute thing done to it probably to have it done for the beta. But not sure about that because medal of honor beta didn't went all to well on xbl.

I do feel like we will get the info tomorrow or something.

No live streams?
Not a press-conference. Just a demo area.
Edit: Beaten by a sexy German man.

I don't want to be one of those guys that just complains... I mean, the map is gorgeous, but at 1:20 or 2:43, you can see the spartan doesn't touch the ground, he just floats. That's pure lazyness =\
Oh weird, it does kind of look like that. As if the bounding is a flat rectangle that runs just above the highest point of that entire platform.
Maybe an early version of the map?

I'm here right now. No press conference.

Mostly Kinect games, and Halo, Gears 3 and Age of Empires Online. I'm not going to try many of them unfortunately as I need to leave shortly.

Edit: oh, and All Orcs Must Die

Or it could be (wait for it) still in development! :)

This map hasn't received it's final polish pass yet so perf and tiny things like that should be addressed.

My bad! Forgive me. I just assumed since you were letting people play it, it was finished already.

It's a really quick and simple fix anyway.

Thanks for clearing that up.

Perhaps this title will work better.

People seem to be confusing it for a press conference.

I apologize if I wasn't clear enough in the schedule thread.
Yeah, then again considering everyone else is doing a conf, it's kinda expected of MS.

Zeouterlimits beat me =D.

It was clear if one read it.

Should I make a new thread about Trenched?
I'd say the re-name is important enough.

Well that liveblog was pretty shitty I must say.
Snarky, didn't want to be there, and then not having enough battery?
It isn't really a good event to liveblog it. Just post some photos on Twitter and post impressions later the day. That would be a good coverage for such an event.
