E3 2007

- So I watched the entire Microsoft Press Conference. Stupid G4 broadcasts it live but then you have commercials so I missed some of it.
- Almost all footage was gameplay with several games being demoed right on stage.
- Only Resident Evil 5 won't come out this year (which btw looked really good). All other games shown are set to come out this year which is pretty impressive.
- Biggest surprise? NO PRICE DROP!
- Lamest reveal? Special edition halo 3 xbox 360....umm yeah it's green.
- It was revealed that gta 4 trailers (both of them) were from the 360 version. Man I hope they work on that framerate
- I was really impressed by COD4. It really looked great.
- Gears of war on PC will be for Vista AND XP. 5 new chapters including that big boss fight we never got on 360 but only saw in a cut scene.
- Single Player Halo 3 footage was shown. It's looking pretty good.

- This is going to be one EXPENSIVE Christmas. Nintendo and Sony press conferences happens today.
