I'm not sure WTF Microsoft is doing, but this sure won't help.

Meh, they haven't been able to give a straight answer about anything anyway. I just hope the presentation is good and informative. The answers will come in time. I just to see some good stuff and hopefully they will at least touch on some of the more important issues like how often it needs to connect online and used games.

Starting to sound like a witch hunt at this point. PS fan boys chasing MS trying to find a story where there is none. Cause heaven knows Sony has given as much information about the PS4 as possible. They've left nothing to the imagination. Rolling Eyes

Again no one has even seen this thing...not sure yet if it actually exists or not. But let's chase MS and ask why they've canceled the post media blitz. Maybe because they plan to answer all questions DURING the actual event.

A non-story.

If they answer all the questions during the event then it's all good, but if they don't AND they've cancelled the media conference then something is up.

Microsoft seems to be sewing the seeds of distrust as of late. Hopefully they'll touch base on all of the current issues that everyone wants answers for at E3. I'd be happy if they annouced three exclusive titles that appeal to my interest... and maybe a bit more about Kinect keeping an eye on me. lol

I surely hope so. It's in my nature to be a pessimist so until MS proves otherwise that's how I'm leaning at this point.

Not sure it means anything but I do wonder if M$ is taking a course in how to poorly market an item/public image?

Makes sense. After all the post Xbox One reveal video confusion they probably want to keep a unified message and not have different execs quoted saying things differently, or saying something incorrect.

Here's an idea. Be transparent and tell what the product actually does. CRAZY concept I know. Rolling Eyes

Lol, they tried that with the reveal but all their employees worded things differently so there was confusion and people crying about every little thing.

I think they're taking note of how Sony handled the PS4 launch. Do the launch event, then NO ONE says anything. That way there's no confusion or drama. Doesn't mean they are hiding anything or being sketchy, they're just trying to avoid misquotes and confusion.

Well, it probably helps if the execs actually know what the product is capable of and/or requires. Probably asking for too much there. I am sure this was put together at the last minute with almost no prep work. It would have been too much to ask for the people being interviewed to actually know what they were talking about.

Plus all those hard ball questions about used games and online connectivity. Who could have seen that coming? Or right, EVERYONE. Since those were the biggest articles on the biggest sites for MONTHS leading up to the reveal.

Weaksauce.

The problem is there is already confusion and drama. Had they not said anything at all that would be one thing, but they screwed that up already.

I think we've all dealt with exec types at some point. Some of them are sharp and could breeze through an interview. There's always someone that says something stupid. Microsoft seems to have a whole team of people to say stupid sh!t in interviews lol.
