Microsoft Keynote at E3 2009

Gaming Hardware
^M00:00:03 >> Brian Tong here at E3 2009. We're here at the end of Microsoft's keynote, and there was a lot of software announcements, a lot of XBox Live announcements, but the biggest one of them all was Project Natal. Now this is a 3D motion sensor camera. We heard something like this in the rumors, but this actually uses your body as controller. It has voice recognition and facial recognition. And there was some amazing stuff here. They showed how you could your body to like paint a canvas, and change the different paint colors with your voice. They also showed how a person could interact with an Avatar that could read their emotions as if you were interacting with a real person. >> You've gotta put these goggles on. >> Goggles? >> Put them on like this. >> There is no ET date when the Project Natal will actually go live, but they'll be compatible with your current XBox and future XBox 360's going forward. On the XBox Live front they've added last SM for all gold subscribers. But that's gonna be completely free. And also they've made some neat improvements to Netflix. You won't have to go to your PC to add any movies to your queue; you can do it directly from the XBox. They're also adding the Sky TV service in Ireland and U.K. This will actually be the first time where you can watch a live TV directly through your XBox without any type of cable connection. We all know XBox live is very social, but it's gonna get a lot more social with the integration of Facebook and Twitter. You guys are all gonna like that. The video market place is now being rebranded as [inaudible] video. And the great things about this, all the video content will be 1080P. You won't have to wait to download these things to your queue; it'll be instant on. And the other great thing about this is that you can get your friends, your avatars, watch an actual movie and interact with each other while you're doing that. On the gaming front there were a ton of appearances. We started things off with the Beatles Rock Band. They showed us the world premier, and Ringo Starr and Paul McCartney were here to show their support for a game that featured Avatars of themselves. >> We were great. >> Also Tony Hawk, Ride with Showcase, he came out with his plastic skateboard and showcased all these different grinds and jumps you can do. We got our first look at Alan Wake, [phonetic] which is a Survivor four game. It's been in development for over 3 years and they gave us a release date of 2010. And, yes, finally, Metal Gear Solid is coming to the XBox in the form of Metal Gear Solid Rising. An all new game featuring Dillion Ritis. [phonetic] ^M00:02:13 [ silence ] ^M00:02:19 >> And the game channel that probably had me the most impressed, and the crowd on the edge of their seats was Modern Warfare 2. ^M00:02:24 [ war sounds] ^M00:02:27 >> A lot of intense moments. And the sound and visuals were just off the hook. We also saw the first game play screen shots of Final Fantasy 13, they announced this at E3 the last year, so it's nice to see just a little tidbit of that. They also showcased what's gonna be only on the XBox, exclusively on their system. We got a look at Forza Motorsports 3. We can do a lot of collaboration and create your own videos, up load them for other users to watch. Splinter Cell is finally back with Splinter Cell conviction. It's coming out this fall. And the biggest franchise on Microsoft system, Halo OSVT was finally showcased for the first time with some more game play, as well as a sneak peek trailer of Halo Reach, which they called their top [inaudible] project. But no one really knows what that's gonna really showcase. But the big news here, Project Natal, Microsoft 3D motion sensing camera where you use your body as the controller. There you have it, all the updates from the Microsoft keynote to E3 2009. ^E00:03:17
