    FF XIII on 360 is the biggest announcement i can remember for a long time.

    I bet Sony execs are thrilled about spending the rest of this E3 answering questions about how they lost this exclusive.

    Looks like Sony didn't think FF was worth keeping exclusive outside Japan. :razz:

    No new core games announced is disappointing. No bungie stuff..?

    SE needs that badly ,even the 13% of SE owned by Sony wouldn't disagree one second with this. :)

    Let me note that just as there was a lot of positive unexpecteds for MS here beyond what the rumor mill had thrown out, we still have Sony and Nintendo's conferences to go tomorrow.

    MS is in the clear "E3" lead right now, but at the same time let's at least let the other contestants go before medals are handed out. I'm hoping that Sony and Nintendo each have their respective positive surprises tomorrow.

    I presume it's just standard karaoke muting of the voice track by inverting one of the stereo channels. For it to have lyrics and pitch recognition, they'd need the full library of all the world's songs to hand!

    Netflix sharing is interesting. Sony's download sharing has been excellent - you can even share RockBand tracks between accounts. Streaming a movie across several people is an unexpected step in that direction, but quite an odd one. Who really wants to watch a movie with other people while at the same time on your own?

    The big irony here is MS are totally eclipsing Sony's efforts in the Media Hub department...but then only in North America.

    It just made absolutely no sense for SE not to put FF13 on 360, for the life of me I couldn't understand why they weren't bringing it over... better late than never they made the obvious, and smart, decision.

    I don't see the placeholder, but the "down" screen seemingly has a countdown to 1 day 18 hours from now.

    Wow and wow. Man, not sure what to think. Makes up for the lack of motion controller announcement. I really wanted one of those.

    The new dashboard is cool, but anybody see if it's optional or required? Totally explains the lack of a spring update. Can't wait to check out the avatars, party system, Netflix. Hopefully I can dress up as Batman. ;)

    Don't like RPGs, but the FFXIII news was impressive. Explains Sony's comment about exclusives awhile back. ;)

    Can't wait to try all the new Arcade games (Uno Rush, Banjoe Kazooie, Galaga Legions, Geometry Wars 2, Portal: Still Alive) and causual games(Scene-It 2, You're in the Movies). ;)

    Ok, so silver members can get it but just at additional cost? I thought it was exclusive to gold the way it read on Engadget.

    Holy crap, good job MS.


    I hope Sony can show similarly impressive things on their presentation.

    FF13 for X360? This news might be hard to swallow for some people

    The new dashboard is a huge improvement that finally picks up on the current trends in UI design. How does this fit in with the existing Blades though? Is this something like an application launched from the dash, or a full replacement.

    gotta say I like the old dash better. The new dash just reminds me of the sony xmb on the psp and ps3. I really don't like those at all , they are way to slow to find whta I want
