OH MY DAYS

Who saw the new Xbox 360 User Interface????????????????????????
The whole flippin presentation on things to come on 360 was too much. They took elements from Wii and PS3 and now they are doing it.

I would never had said it before but now, if PS3 don't come out with someone fabulous quick time then "PS3 IS DEAD".

THOR!

I'm not sure a user interface is going to kill off a console.

Oh, No! Xbox Mii-60s Arrive
http://wii.ign.com/articles/889/889275p1.html


July 14, 2008 - On Tuesday, Microsoft showcased at its E3 2008 press conference Xbox 360's new interface and Avatar system. We think two or three people in the audience clapped. Really, we're not sure why more attendees weren't blown out of their seats and directly into outer space. This is pioneering stuff, people! Get this. The system's newly designed front end features heavy implementation of "Avatars," or cartoony characters designed to look like caricatures of players. Are you reading what we're writing? Stop moving your eyes and soak it in. You'll be able to recreate yourself, albeit very stylized, in the game. Boom! That's how we do it in Vista Land, baby. But if that weren't enough to shake the very fabric of the universe, Microsoft had more revelations. Like a channels-esque interface for its system. And the ability to incorporate your Miis -- er, Avatars -- into games. This is true innovation, folks.

All right, so I'm laying it on a bit thick, but the Microsoft presentation really left me a little perplexed. I left the conference with the impression that the company has an identity crisis.

Sony's PlayStation 3 Gains Ground on Xbox With Games
http://www.bloomberg.com/apps/news?pid=20601080&sid=aClqhxdVor6g&refer=asia


The PlayStation 3 outsold the Xbox 360 in the U.S. in the first five months of 2008 after trailing Microsoft’s console in 2007. New exclusive games, such as “Metal Gear Solid 4,” and the rise of Sony’s Blu-ray as the dominant high-definition DVD player may enable PlayStation 3 to hold onto its lead.

lol
Any Xbox 360 "Fanboys" will have been previous Nintendo and Playstation fans, so obviously willing to switch console... Which would pretty much void them of being called fanboys if they have no brand loyalty. I doubt many people's first console was microsoft unless their real young.


I don't see the hype on the new dashboard yet, but i haven't seen it.

Most of those games are multiplatform, I like the 360 new interface atleast its better than the current one

Sony need to make Home beta available real quick, microsoft keep stealing ideas of 2d home, 3d home>>>>

They could release 2d home 2day, that would be crazy but i doubt it

I expect a few more 1st party games apart from Killzone2 and the others that we have already seen, new PSN games, little big planet demo

Something major about Home (not just "its coming in November"), maybe some sort of home playable demo

Maybe we might find out whats new about the new ps3 model apart from the inclusion of the dual shock 3

Trailer of LA Noire from Rockstar

Apparently there is a really good new game which journalist who have seen it are really excited about, news on that would be good

The launch of Sony's movie on demand service

Sony also has a new device its announcing...PSP phone? maybe but there is a new device coming
