A very busy day in gaming news land as Microsoft had their E3 press conference. While more happened then I could possibly cover in a few short paragraphs, but if I was to some it up in a few words I would say Microsoft is serious about the family unit and the emergence of the casual game set which has become very huge in the gaming space in recent years. From what I can tell from their press conference they have a the goods for a full scale assault on your living room.
One of the most important announcements for me was along with the Avatar’s (see above…they are not as bad as we thought they may be, they actually look like they will be fun) is the introduction of the party system. Finally now up to eight people will be able to roll around 360 landscape, plotting there evening, having lots of laughs and fun along the way. I will feel right at home with my friends on the 360.
