Microsofts 2010 E3 presentation has come and gone, and was it awesome.
The first great game was announced by Hideo Kojima and introduced by Shiganobu Matsayama, it is called, Metal Gear Solid Rising and stars Raiden, the graphics were stunning and beautiful, the game seems to take a "Zan datsu" theme, which means cut everything and thats what Raiden did in the trailer, he sliced and diced a van and several enemies.
A few other games were also demoed, which are, Gears Of Wars 3, which has a new beast mode, Fable 3, Codename Kingdoms and Halo Reach.
Then it went on to the Kinect presentation, which was quite astounding, here is a list of things you can do:
Control your console with movement and voice commands.
Video chat with your Xbox Live friends and MSN friends, you can also watch movies with them.
The camera tracks your movement automatically.
