Random thoughts on Microsoft's E3 media briefing

  • I have a weird feeling that because publishers must approve games, backward compatibility with Xbox 360 won’t live up to its full potential.
  • Rare Replay, a compilation of 30 classic Rare games, looks sweet. If done right, it will offer some incredible value.
  • First thought on Rare’s new game: it looks beautiful. Second thought: oh, it’s an MMO.
  • I like Halo but I don’t love Halo. It looked pretty, I guess.
  • The new controller that was announced at the beginning of the stream looks really nice. Sell it for under 90€ and I’ll buy it.
  • Don’t end a show with a remaster. It sort of deflates the entire thing.
