I am still around. Just decided to take a little break from everything. Should be getting into the swing of things again. I do have like 150+ emails/PMs to handle, with a bunch of people needing to be added to the 100% achievement clubs I run at the Xbox.com forums.
Major, aka Larry Hryb, was able to get a quick 5 minute interview with THE man from Microsoft, Mr. Bill Gates.
Major said he was nervous, and I don’t blame him.
This will likely be my last post for the day, until atleast 8pm EST. I am packing up and going home for the summer!
My buddy Surly Duff (Mike), a fellow Xbox MVP, has talked to me about Tony Kornheiser and Pardon the Interruption, the TV show that Tony does with Mike Wilbon.
I truly do love the show. They say exactly what should be say, regardless of the topic.
Well anyways, Mike is a big Kornheiser fan, and was able to go to a taping of the show. He decided to blog about it.
Its a great read, so head over.
Announcement trailer is on the Xbox Live Marketplace.
Alrighty, so we all know. Sony has a 2 SKU offering, with a $499 (20GB) version and a $599 (60GB) version…but are there more differences between the two? HDbeat thinks so:
So…what does this mean? Does this dual HDMI port PS3 only have one? Or, is that supposed to be an Extra…but, wouldn’t that still take away one? The Xbox360 has 2 SKUs. There are 2 differences. The Core comes with SD cables, and no HDD. But you can buy the HD cables, and you can buy the HDD. For what will total ~430. So…you are getting an Xbox360, which I think will be right there with Sony (don’t count that CGI), for $70 cheaper. Go figure.
So….quick recap. $499 for a PS3 (which didnt impress me at their keynote) with a 20GB HDD.
IGN has more
Just a recap I got from Major’s blog:
‘X-3′ gamer pictures
- Adidas Gamerpics (Free, all Regions)
- Test Drive Unlimited Demo
- A bunch of trailers
To reduce the load at Majornelson.com, I took the images and placed them in this post.
Xbox.com has a content timeline for the week of E3. Now, it does not include the not announced material that you see in this list.
Personally, when I get home from school, I am going download crazy (got some good broadband at home). I am in love with the way that Microsoft has decided to use the marketplace. Forget about reading trailer reviews, or getting low quality video. I am getting HD videos that I can play on my HD TV at home. Rock on Microsoft!
[Xbox.com, Bring E3 Home]
So, the school year is ending soon. My mother is coming up on Wednesday morning, right after my Economics final, and we are going to pack and go home that day.
Its been fun here, but, I really love it back home. So ill probably shut down until Wednesday night…except for big info from E3 2006.
If I don’t have the info make sure to drop by Xbox.com and Majornelson.com, as well as Gamerscore Blog for info.
