LIVE BLOG

bluexy @ 11:05AM
bluexy @ 11:05AM
See everyone in the comments.
bluexy @ 11:05AM
That's it everyone! A bit light on the games, unfortunately. Still, we got to see the Xbox One. Did you like it?
bluexy @ 11:04AM
"Thank you for joining us. You can check back shortly to watch on demand."
bluexy @ 11:04AM
Lots of post-apocalyptic imagery. Dog tearing dudes up. Floods, truck crashes, buildings crashing, and a big ol' submarine coming up through the ice. Looks... poignant. I'm in. For the first time since Modern Warfare, I'm back in.
bluexy @ 11:03AM
"It's been 10 years. You start to forget. The things you should remember. And you can't stop remembering. The things you should forget." DOG. "We've always had the power. No anymore. What we have. Is each other. We're ghosts. Fighting for something. That can't be killed. Soldiers stand against their enemies. But ghosts? Haunt them."
bluexy @ 11:02AM
Okay, the engine looks great, but here's the world premiere of Call of Duty: Ghosts gameplay.
bluexy @ 11:01AM
bluexy @ 11:00AM
DOG. That's a good looking dog. "Every detail is replicated."
bluexy @ 11:00AM
They're showing off the new engine and tech now. "SubD"
bluexy @ 10:59AM
60 FPS, low latency controls, and a great feeling game.
bluexy @ 10:58AM
"We focus on gameplay."
bluexy @ 10:58AM
Extensive character customization. "Connect with who you are as a player." Or did he mean... Kinect?
bluexy @ 10:58AM
"Revamping" multiplayer. "Dynamic Maps." Earthquakes and floods, things that change the flow of the map.
bluexy @ 10:57AM
They've added sliding, leaning from behind cover, fluid dynamics, interactive smoke, and AI for things like fish. AND DOG.
bluexy @ 10:57AM
Infinity Ward is, "reinventing the core experience."
bluexy @ 10:56AM
bluexy @ 10:56AM
New World. New Storyline. New Engine.
bluexy @ 10:56AM
DOG IS A SQUAD MEMBER.
bluexy @ 10:56AM
"Ghosts are like the Spartans all the way through Seal Team 6." DOG TOO. DOG.
bluexy @ 10:55AM
Stephen Gaghan, writer of Traffic, writing Call of Duty: Ghosts.
bluexy @ 10:55AM
DOG.
bluexy @ 10:54AM
bluexy @ 10:54AM
"We're not doing the safe thing." "We could have just made Modern Warfare 4."
bluexy @ 10:53AM
Hey look everyone it's Call of Duty: Ghosts! That's not even an exclusive! "All downloadable content for Call of Duty will launch exclusively for Xbox One." That's a big get.
bluexy @ 10:52AM
"Next chapter" will be E3, where they'll be showing off their exclusives.
bluexy @ 10:52AM
Xbox Box will be launching "later this year" and by that they mean probably November (my words, not there's).
bluexy @ 10:51AM
Huh, I guess that's it for the Xbox reveal. They're closing out. Where are the games?
bluexy @ 10:50AM
Again, details are scant, lots of PR talk.
bluexy @ 10:50AM
"Now fans are going to be able to experience football in a way they never have before."
bluexy @ 10:50AM
Just name the dang thing Xbox Sports, already.
bluexy @ 10:50AM
"With Xbox we're going to have exclusive content." With SmartGlass and such they'll bring social stuff to the NFL. Basically, stuff you can goof around with while watching the game.
bluexy @ 10:48AM
Xbox partnership with NFL? What!?
bluexy @ 10:48AM
A new "Game Changing" sports partnership.
bluexy @ 10:48AM
bluexy @ 10:47AM
I spelled his name wrong, I think. Steven Spielberg. He's excited about the universe. No word on what the show will be like. Band of Brothers? Or more animated Clone Wars?
bluexy @ 10:46AM
Steven Spielburgh!
bluexy @ 10:46AM
Live action Halo television series!
bluexy @ 10:46AM
Something about Forward Unto Dawn and how they want to expand the Halo universe across mediums.
bluexy @ 10:45AM
Bonnie Ross of 343 takes the stage.
bluexy @ 10:45AM
What's Halo got to do with TV?
bluexy @ 10:44AM
HALO!?
bluexy @ 10:44AM
No, wait, she's not changing TV, she's just saying they want to make TV more social. I was hoping they were going to pull a Netflix and start publishing TV shows or something.
bluexy @ 10:44AM
"TV will be truly personalized."
bluexy @ 10:44AM
"Xbox is expanding the canvas." Whoa is she going to change the TV!?
bluexy @ 10:43AM
bluexy @ 10:43AM
Nancy Tellem, head of Xbox Entertainment Studios, takes the stage.
bluexy @ 10:42AM
More games in development now at Microsoft than ever before. I guess that makes sense. MONEY.
bluexy @ 10:42AM
15 exclusive games in the first year of Xbox One. 8 of which are brand new franchises. Wow.
bluexy @ 10:42AM
bluexy @ 10:41AM
I like it. Remedy. I like it.
bluexy @ 10:41AM
The kid touches the lady and made her see video games. A boat runs into a bridge. Time is ... skipping. "Time is the Fire In Which We Burn."
bluexy @ 10:40AM
"Do you think it's safe where we're going," says the little girl. It's a live action video. This child looks terrifying.
bluexy @ 10:40AM
NOPE. Quantum Break!
bluexy @ 10:40AM
Oh man, oh man, oh man. Gimme the Alan Wake!
bluexy @ 10:40AM
Moving on to another game! From the creators of bullet time. It's Remedy!
bluexy @ 10:39AM
"Visuals so real you'll see the imperfections."
bluexy @ 10:39AM
More at E3 for Forza Motorsport 5.
bluexy @ 10:38AM
bluexy @ 10:38AM
Very high detailed graphics, but this could be cinematic. Damn, those some sexy cars.
bluexy @ 10:37AM
"This is Forza Motorsport 5 running on Xbox One."
bluexy @ 10:36AM
... or is that "Kinected" ?
bluexy @ 10:36AM
Lots of language about being, "more Kinected."
bluexy @ 10:36AM
Phil Spencer of Microsoft Studios takes the stage.
bluexy @ 10:35AM
It's just some shots of cinematic sports being played. They're focusing on impacts and close encounters, very precise movements, but how this works with actual games?
bluexy @ 10:34AM
"Here's how game's will play on Xbox One." Moving to a video.
bluexy @ 10:34AM


HUMAN INTELLIGENCE.
bluexy @ 10:33AM
Man this guy is either talking nonsense or I need to go back to bed. Something about how their tech lets you make smarter decisions with 4x as many calculations. "True Player Motion"
bluexy @ 10:32AM
Guys, do you like sports? Xbox. DONE.
bluexy @ 10:31AM
There are sports dudes talking about sports right now. It has ... something to do with Ignite?
bluexy @ 10:31AM
bluexy @ 10:31AM
There is so much PR speak in this conference. It's much more directed at a broad, television watching audience as opposed to straight up gamers.
bluexy @ 10:30AM
Also, EA Sports Ignite. A service to blend the line between virtual and real.
bluexy @ 10:30AM
Working on four games. FIFA 14, Madden 25, NBA Live 14, and UFC 14.
bluexy @ 10:29AM
Andrew Wilson of Electronic Arts is taking the stage. From EA Sports. FIFA time?
bluexy @ 10:28AM
I want to read all the comments on this article but the Liveblog is too complicated!
bluexy @ 10:27AM
"Playing games is brought to a whole new level." A game DVR to store gaming moments directly to the cloud.
bluexy @ 10:27AM
"Today, 15,000 servers power the modern Xbox Live experience." Apparently it's upgrading to more than 300,000 servers? THE CLOUD.
bluexy @ 10:26AM
Here we go, we're moving on the Xbox Live. "Based on the same membership you have today."
bluexy @ 10:26AM
Basically, Microsoft is making the pitch that the Xbox One can't work without all three inputs working together at the same time. Kinect, controller, SmartGlass.
bluexy @ 10:25AM
"Control your experience, your way."
bluexy @ 10:25AM
bluexy @ 10:25AM
Now the controller! Updated ergonomics. Impulse trigger, newly designed d-pad. Looks very sexy.
bluexy @ 10:24AM
More joints and the thing can recognize the movement of joints. It can read your heartbeat when you exercise.
bluexy @ 10:23AM
We're taking a look at the next-gen Kinect now.
bluexy @ 10:21AM
"Kinected experiences." Here we go again.
bluexy @ 10:21AM
8GB of RAM! USB 3.0. 64bit architecture. Variable power states. Virtually silent.
bluexy @ 10:20AM
We're going to go over "what powers the Xbox" now. Kinect, controller and SmartGlass are the inputs.
bluexy @ 10:20AM
I've heard that a chat is up an running, but not in the news post. You'll have to go to the forum side of things to see the chat.
bluexy @ 10:19AM
"This is the beginning of truly intelligent TV."
bluexy @ 10:19AM
The most impressive thing so far is that the voice commands have all worked without borking out.
bluexy @ 10:18AM
Voice control search and navigation, favorites and trending are three new ways to look for something to watch on TV!
bluexy @ 10:17AM
"Let's tackle what I think is the biggest challenge when watching TV." "Finding something to watch!"
bluexy @ 10:17AM
This basketball game is old. The Xbox can see into the past.
bluexy @ 10:17AM
He's now showing how you can watch ESPN on one side of the screen while checking out your Fantasy Sports stuff on the right. Yes, yes, SnapMode is very cool.
bluexy @ 10:15AM
Ooo, we're going to see Skype working in SnapMode! Star Wars running on the left side of the screen. Skype call on the right side of the screen!
bluexy @ 10:15AM
PS, sorry about the broken IMG link. I can't go back and edit the liveblog, from what I can tell. We're on the cutting edge of technology here, people!
bluexy @ 10:14AM
"The ability to do multiple thing at once on your Xbox is now a reality." With snapmode you can do multiple things at the same time. Movie running on the left side of the screen, but with Internet Explorer in the right side.
bluexy @ 10:13AM
bluexy @ 10:13AM
[img link=]https://photos-6.dropbox.com/t/0/AADlTa7vEuhRHMVr2TTDbRAdgg62ZPD-mli4QwHpB8sDvg/12/66134165/jpeg/32x32/3/1369162800/0/2/Xbox_Yusef2.jpg/1SeXe7OEEXApP1VE0Nfx3vaGF4CSPeJYsu_ZnbTkCEg?size=1280x960[/img]
bluexy @ 10:13AM
It's switching between games, TV, Internet Explorer, all with voice commands virtually instantly.
bluexy @ 10:12AM
We're going over TV functionality now. "Xbox, watch TV." And it flips to TV.
bluexy @ 10:11AM
He briefly mentioned how we'll have have to wait for updates for the console or games to download. I assume he's implying that due to its always-online nature it'll download in the background.
bluexy @ 10:10AM
"What if it was always online and connected." Uh oh. Then he talked to the console and it turned on. "Xbox on."
bluexy @ 10:10AM
bluexy @ 10:09AM
We're going to go over some of the "new experiences" we'll find only with Xbox One now. With Yusuf Mehdi.
bluexy @ 10:08AM
The controller looks pretty similar. The Xbox looks remarkably different, however. Very nondescript.
bluexy @ 10:07AM
"The one system for a new generation."

Introducing... "Xbox One"
bluexy @ 10:07AM
"It's time for technology to step behind the curtain and for energy and entertainment to take center stage."
bluexy @ 10:04AM
We're going through Xbox's past right now. It's pretty brief, it seems. Thank goodness. "With Kinect we made you the controller." Let's stop with the history.
bluexy @ 10:03AM
Here we go! The presentation is starting.
bluexy @ 10:03AM
"The More of You" seems to be theme of this commercial they're showing online right now. "You and your TV are going to have a relationship." They don't know the half of it!
bluexy @ 10:02AM
Word is the online stream is delayed and that console viewers are getting it a bit early. That's okay! I'll just be talking from the past! To the future!
bluexy @ 10:01AM
Hey! We're ready to go! Here's Major Nelson and another Xbox lady who I didn't catch her name.
bluexy @ 10:00AM
Apparently on one of the streams there's a dude talking on-stage already. I'm still seeing a countdown, however.
bluexy @ 09:57AM
I'm trying to find the man with the plan who can set us up with a chatbox. In the mean time, lets see if images work. How's that sound?
@ 09:52AM
Heyhey, we're testing out this new liveblog stuff! I hope this works! :)
