    Wasn't it said that the games side of One was to be shown at E3? If so then it was to be expected of them to show little or nothing on games during this event. Either way this unveiling was a big turn off, the only thing I'm interested in is exactly what those 15 games are....I expect most to be geared towards Kinect. Time will tell.

    And yet... They mentioned not a single name... Unless Forza 5 and Quantum Break are included in those numbers.

    They clearly said a number of times that this was going to happen at E3.

    Oh, is that supposed to make me pumped? Y'know, instead of showing over 40 minutes of sports talk and videos or Spielberg that went nowhere, it might have been a tad more exciting if they focused on, y'know, games.

    We're not the only market they're going for, they have given us some time (granted I would prefer if it was much more) but be realistic, their business is not just about us.

    And that's an acceptable excuse? PS4 also is appealing to broad their horizons with connectivity features, but they made it clear their main focus was still games and gamers, And for better or worse, and narrow as it might be, Nintendo is pretty much JUST about games and gamers. Seriously though, how do you expect me to care about them if they no longer care about me?

    BladedFalcon, It seems we both had a rebuttal in mind.

    Lol, yup XD

    Both are fair responses.

    It's only a teaser, not a full-blown unveil. Given that both Sony and Microsoft are releasing this year it makes sense that both have tried to keep their cards close to their chest for now and drip feed info slowly as to maintain momentum. If you are talking about it now (which we are) then job done, they have raised the consoles profile. But at the moment, gamers or not, nobody is realistically putting down preorders just yet. And lets be honest, even without the games we are peaked in our interest, but the masses? Well they will only talk about it if it has a gimmick or is appealing on a wider scale. Plenty of time to get people G'd up for it. If Microsoft hold off big game unveiling until a couple of months before release it shouldnt matter, so long as Sony haven't launched already, obviously. Still too early to make any serious sort of comment one way or the other on either of the new consoles just yet.

    You need to be realistic as well. Who are the people who are watching this press conference? The occasional COD player who loves football? Is he the one anxiously awaiting the announcement of the next Microsoft system? This press conference needed to be geared towards the people who are willing to spend $500 on day one for a brand new machine, and that my friend is us. The people who are interested in games first, and foremost. Who go to the living room to play games, NOT just watch TV and the latest sporting event. There will be plenty of time to court the masses. The Kinect proved that broad appeal can be achieved at any part of consoles life cycle. These conferences should be mainly focused on us. The gamer.
