    They've already explained the DRM issue. They just haven't explained it in detail -- or clarified things like if you had a disc with you could you play offline?

    Things like that. But they did show games.

    I voted an A for the concept, Games games games.

    Otherwise, all the info I wanted to be cleared will hopefully come in interviews during E3.

    Gave it an A simply for focusing on games and only games.

    Having said that, i will never buy a console that steals my rights and limits my options. Good luck to who ever will buy this console, i hope you will enjoy it's exclusives.

    Edit: oh and 499 ... ouch!

    B. Was pretty good.

    RYSE was a bit too quick timey for me otherwise I'd be really keen.


    It just really really sucks about the damn drm, always online and used games mandatory kinect thing. No matter what game gets announced those anti-consumer things will turn me off

    Concept was good: games, games, games.

    Execution: Awful.

    The only games that interested me were multiplatform titles, and current generation ones at that.

    Plus, no clarification of complaints, and FOUR HUNDRED NINETY NINE US DOLLARS!

    That OS moves so seamlessly

    In terms of exclusives, Insomniacs CG trailer was lacklustre as was Blacktusks unnamed game. DR3 looked like a 360 game.

    Killer Instinct = awesome.
    The uploading and streaming stuff was expected

    Ryse was too much of a QTEfest
    Remedy's game wasn't gameplay was it?

    Forza looked OK. Still can't nail photorealism for me. But it'll be a great game anyway as have all Forza's

    Titanfall looks amazing, the concept, I mean. 360 footage surely but I can see that game being big

    $499 is laughable

    C, 6/10

    They definitely stepped it up from the last 3 years but since I'm not a fan of shooters there were some boring moments. Some games didn't look next gen to me either (DR3). MGSV was the best part of the conference along with SPARK, but tbh I'm tired of MGS, so really only SPARK seemed like a good game from what was shown, LBP3D basically.

    And yeah $499 has just killed them, it'll be another PS3/Wii U, casuals gamers are all for tablets now so if they think that crowd will still be interested they're in for a tough generation.

    Id give ms conference solely on games a C+ only 3 games stood out to me Titan Fall the game from Insomniac and Killer Instinct everything else was mediocre and the BF4 gameplay looked blurry dark and dissaponinting Titan Fall was easily the best game shown. The best announcement was twitch but there was no mention of whether u needed a gold account to stream. I am however impressed but I dont think id jump ship just yet.

    Rise looked exciting but I couldnt help but notice block slash quick time event then give your squad a command it looks like it will be a repetitive game. The gfx were great but the gameplay seemed very limited

    Yup, they nailed it. Great price, great games, great console. Other than the audio hiccup, it was solid.

    Honestly, I'd give it a B.

    As far as games go, they had some cool reveals (Halo 5, Ryse, Project Spark and Sunset Overdrive). Killer Instinct also got the crowd excited.
    Thanks to Kwes for the avatar and Sylar for the signature!

    I give it a B.

    They tried with lots of games, but a lot were. . . eh. . .

    $500? Yikes and gazooks!

    Dead Rising 3 looked really fun. I didn't care for Titan Fall (Although it looks very promising objectively) or BF4. I like shooters, but I'm a Halo guy so that made me happy to see, and glad to hear it is coming out in 2014 instead of 2013.

    Ryse looked really qte, like someone said, and that was a turn-off.

    Sunset whatever. . . eh. . . no gameplay footage. I was fooled by Overstrike already.

    Quantum Break, two reveals and I still have no idea what the game is about or how it plays.

    MGS5 looks fine, and KI. . . will have to wait for more info since I never played the original.

    I liked Project Spark, that looked really cool though. . . so yeah, getting two games a month and the partnership with twitch is cool. I give it a B or B-
    I talk to myself because I'm the only one whose answers I accept.

    6/10. Delivered on their promise of games but nothing wowed me. Underwhelming to a point. Oh and that price

    C - they did fine. There are tired sequels in there, hopefully the new franchises will be good. They might've one-up'd Sony on the lets play and streaming part. They didn't sway me from the DRM issues and price, so currently I won't be buying it.

    C+

    -Killer Instinct, Ryse, Project Spark were the highlights.

    -Titanfall looked like a great concept, but underwhelming graphically.

    -New Halo teaser, no gameplay shown. So meh.

    -Audio bugs, twice, during Crimson Dragon and Battlefield 4.

    -Not too many exclusives.

    -Battlefield 4 footage was from the PC, and not XBOne, as there was a prompt for a backspace push.

    -No DRM talks

    -$499. Its not an outrageous price or anything, but so far does not look worth it to me.

    I woulndt say the one uped sony on streamin because sonys streaming is better but I would say the uploading is better but we have yet to see if you can edit your shared videos from the ps4.
