The Internet Reacts To Microsoft's E3 Presentation

The Internet Reacts To Microsoft's E3 Presentation

Microsoft was the first up to bat today, and this year they focused primarily on one thing during their presentation: the games. Not just big triple-A games, either -- there were plenty of small indie games showcased as well. People noticed.

In fact, in general, people seem to be responding pretty well to everything Microsoft unveiled today during their press conference, relative to the sentiments last year. This is not to say people didn't have snark to offer -- it's the internet, and that's just the basic mode of communication around here. Still, there's the feeling that Microsoft upped their game from last year. Literally.

Here are some highlights of what folks are saying around the web, both about Microsoft or the games they presented during the conference:

It's kind of funny to hear how folks immediately knew it was Lara, too:

("King Joffrey" is definitely a reference to the dude we saw in Scalebound.)

In response to Fable Legends:

In response to the new Halo collection:

Other folks were a bit more emotional about the Halo announcement:

And at least one person didn't seem happy with the amount of CGI the presentation had:

Francis, naturally, also has things to say:

What about you, what did you think about Microsoft's E3 presentation? Let us know in the comments.

    The internet clearly had a lot to say.

    When is this (blank tweets) gonna be sorted cos it just makes Kotaku look amateurish

      What's your point?

        In this day an age I'd expect an amateur site like Kotaku to at least look professional on the outside :P

    Tweets work in the US version of the article.

    -- leaving a spot to give opinion once I finish watching the presser (watching now. Just saw yet another COD... Not impressed)

    While I didn't think their conference was bad, I thought it was one of their better ones.

    I felt that it didn't necessarily do anything for anyone who is on the fence about the X1. It was quite safe with lots of multi-plats and games we knew were coming. And a LOT of CGI.

    But like I say, it was a good one. 90min of games.

    "This Microsoft press conference is really heavy on the "somebody rendered a trailer that has no gameplay footage in it"".

    This is EXACTLY what I was thinking when I was watching it ... and then getting nauseated at how scripted any actual gameplay and commentating was (sitting here watching Sony's conference and already their Little Big Planet 3 presentation isn't scripted because they are making mistakes and just laughing about it on stage ... which is refreshing and, you know, REAL).

      I actually found it kind of painful to watch. It was fine by virtue of not making mistakes and playing it safe. I was bored to a degree I never knew existed, however.

    I find it funny that mentioning just games this year is something people consider the main improvmeent, let alone the thing to make fun of.

    I don't know if I ever thought the E3 conference in the year of the new-gen consoles was going to not focus on those... and in the year thats past the new-gen console releases... that they focus on games.....

    People need to learn ;)
