Today might mark the most exciting day in Xbox history. I honestly can’t think of a day (specifically any E3) where Xbox unloaded so many amazing future projects on us at once.
A summary, in case you were being a technophobe today…
The above video shows the most amazing news- Xbox 360’s answer to the Wii- if it actually works like it does in the video, this is the blessed Wii killer we’ve dreamed about.
The Xbox also announced Facebook, Last FM and Twitter for their system. I’m not super excited, but it’s nice to see how much their dashboard is beginning to incorporate. If we sneak a keyboard into the equation, the possibilities are starting to seem more and more limitless.
The most exciting announcement for Juan and I was CRACKDOWN 2. We didn’t know if one of our all-time favorite games was getting a sequel. It is, and they’re focusing on multiplayer. Nuff said.
There’s a new Halo, which should excite me more, as Halo 3 was sheer brilliance. But it’s Halo. It excites me as much as Harry Potter. It’s so damn ubiquitous.
Peter Molneux is bringing a virtual child to the Xbox, who’s AI is supposedly indistinguishable from an actual child.
Full Xbox 360 games will be available for download- no more pesky walking and interacting with people to buy your next fix.
And, in some ways the most exciting development, though not as monumental as some, was the trailer for the Beatles game.
