E3 2009: How [Microsoft] Could Steal the Show


In the second article of the big 3 platform holders at E3, the first being Sony, we take a look at Microsoft. It’s a month today when Microsoft are the first of the big 3 to take stage at this year’s E3, a little more then a month away now. Last year, they had a very moderate press conference when they showed off Fallout 3 for the first time, Resident Evil 5 for the first time, a live demo of Gears of War 2 and a live demo of Fable II, followed then by casual stuff, Duffy, claims it’ll beat PLAYSTATION 3 this gen, embarrsing live demo of You’re in the Movies and more.

So yeah, it was a moderate press confrerence. Then suddingly, Square Enix president Yoichi Wada come’s out and introduces the 3 exclusive 360 RPG’s, Infinite Undiscovery, Star Ocean: The Last Hope and The Last Remnant. I bet most of you thought “okay, that was it, it was an okay conference”.

And then, BAM!

To say you seen it coming from a mile away would be stupid, I dont think any of us did. I nearly screemed my head off to be honest, it was that big. But luckully, I didnt but it was obvious as to what was going with me: Final Fantasy XIII on the Xbox 360, it was big.

Unlucky fo the PS3 owners, they would turn their back on Square. Lucky for the Xbox 360 owners, they would get to blast over forums how Sony can kiss this gen goodbye. And as for the neutral who had both a PS3 and 360, it would be either a “I dont care” or “HOLY FUCK!”, mine was the latter.

But Microsoft arent gonna do the same stunt twice in a row now, are they?
