I’m missing a fair bit of Kinect news/announcements, but I don’t think anyone would mind. To be frank, Microsoft’s E3 2010 press conference was embarrassing to watch with their fake banter and enthusiasm for Kinetic. The difference in presentation prowess became evident when Electronic Arts’ press conference rolled which I thought was great.

The new slimmer Xbox 360 is a welcome change. It looks much better than those early leaks yesterday. I appreciate the built-in 802.11n Wi-Fi, 250 GB hard drive and the overall slimmer design, but I wish they shoved that PSU into the box as well. It just makes it easier to disconnect, transport and reconnect.

It wasn’t too crazy of an E3 Day 0 in terms of news or announcements, but there were lots of notable trailers which I’ve highlighted below including “Child of Eden” which may be the reason for me to get a Kinect or Move. (I’m a fan of Rez and Lumines!)

Enjoy!
