Microsoft's E3 News

So, yes, it's 4:30 in the morning, and I'm just about finished watching the tape of Microsoft's E3 Presentation that aired on G4 tonight, and I have to say, for as fun a presentation it has been, between the live rock-style Halo music performance and all of the clips, I have to say, this was incredibly uneventful.

The biggest announcements here was Disney movies becoming available on Xbox's Marketplace and Xbox games heading to Windows... Microsoft boasted at the start of the show that all the games featured would be available in 2007 -- but they were all games we already were sure would be coming out in 2007.

Meanwhile, they quickly slip under the rug the fact that "Too Human" is being pushed back to 2008.

Lots of flash, glitz and glamour, but this presentation really did not have the substance needed to put pressure on Nintendo and Sony... which reminds me, remember to tune into G4 at Noon Wednesday for those presentations!
